It’s tonight! I love a full moon. I love hearing about the origins of their names. I sometimes feel like we are so far removed from the world around us that we don’t even notice these miraculous feats of nature, the cycles that come and go. It makes me sad. I miss them all the time, but like it when I take the time to reflect on them.
I will be taking a few minutes tonight to go out and look at the moon tonight. Hope you will too.
Full Sturgeon Moon – August The fishing tribes are given credit for the naming of this Moon, since sturgeon, a large fish of the Great Lakes and other major bodies of water, were most readily caught during this month. A few tribes knew it as the Full Red Moon because, as the Moon rises, it appears reddish through any sultry haze. It was also called the Green Corn Moon or Grain Moon. – From The Farmer’s Almanac
