No matter what you follow – Astrology, The Farmer's Almanac or some other persuasion, the full moon is always a beautiful site to behold. The Farmer's Almanac describes the November Full Moon as the time to set beaver traps before the swamps froze, to ensure a supply of warm winter furs, and thus dubbed the "Beaver Moon".

Another source names the November Full Moon -- Beaver, Frost, Mourning and Fog Moon. Early Norse cultures knew all of November as Fogmoon, a time to honor the fallen, and swear oaths on oath-rings, to show dedication to aims of the new year.

All I know is that no matter what month it is or where you are, the full moon draws you in and makes you stop, look and think.  A hard photo to capture with a little point and shoot digital!

The fast moving clouds gave us glimpses of the moon one night before the actual Full Moon.

Tonight the clouds have covered the moon. Tomorrow is 11.11.11. Talk about thinking!
