The Many Faces Of The Moon

The Moon

This month’s full moon goes by many names.

Technically, it’s a Blue Moon i.e. The third full moon in a four-full-moon season, whatever that means. Blue Moons really don’t come round that often. The next one isn’t until 2015.

Some Native Americans call it the Full Sturgeon Moon. The large fish called sturgeon are most easily caught at this time of year. Others call it the Full Red Moon because the weather conditions in this season can make the moon look reddish when it rises. Yet others, the Green Corn Moon or the Grain Moon, because crops grow tall at this time of year.

I’m sure there are many more monikers for it in other parts of the world. But whatever you want to call it, I highly recommend going outside and having a look because right now it’s beautiful in any language.
