Related to Beaver moon: harvest moon, full moon
A once-monthly phase of the Earth’s moon that has been anecdotally associated with all ilk of human behaviour, an association which remains unproven. Full moons have been linked to crime, suicide, mental illness, disasters, accidents, birth rates, fertility, werewolf 'outings,' etc.; there are no valid studies linking human behaviour to the moon
