The upcoming full moons in 2023 offer unique opportunities to connect with nature and appreciate the changing seasons.
As we approach the end of the year, there are still two full moons left in 2023 that provide us with a chance to witness the wonders of nature. The next full moon, known as the Beaver Moon, will occur on Monday, November 27. This moon gets its name because it is the time of year when beavers are busy building their cold weather lodges. It is also referred to as the Dew Moon or Mourning Moon for the Celts, signifying the changing seasons and the need for adaptation.

The Beaver Moon, also known as the Dew Moon or Mourning Moon, is a special time to observe the natural world around us. It serves as a reminder of the interconnectedness of all living beings and the importance of adaptation to survive in different seasons. This full moon presents an opportunity to appreciate the hard work of beavers as they prepare for the winter ahead, building their lodges to provide shelter and protection.
Similarly, the Cold Moon, which will grace the night sky on Wednesday, December 27, marks the arrival of winter in the northern hemisphere. As the closest full moon to the winter solstice, it is also known as the Long Night Moon or Oak Moon. This is a time when the days are shortest, and the nights are longest. The Cold Moon invites us to reflect on the cycles of nature and the need for rest and rejuvenation during the colder months.
Both the Beaver Moon and the Cold Moon offer us a chance to connect with nature and appreciate the beauty of the changing seasons. It is a time to pause, reflect, and find inspiration in the natural world around us. Whether it’s observing the busy beavers or embracing the stillness of winter, these full moons remind us of the importance of living in harmony with nature.
By taking the time to witness these celestial events, we can deepen our understanding of the environment and foster a sense of awe and wonder. Let us embrace the opportunities provided by the upcoming full moons to reconnect with nature and cultivate a greater appreciation for the world we live in.
