A full moon brings about changes and can give you new opportunities in your life. The thing is, a full moon doesn’t have to be an earth crushing time but it can be comforting for you. You can keep track of the moon’s cycle easily.
People don’t always consider the full moon’s names but the names that they have are based on Native American traditions and other faith based things. The names can work when there are celebrations, but they were used mainly to help keep track of what time of year it was.
The full moon doesn’t have a name that corresponds with it in the second full moon that comes in one month. This happens in January where the first moon is called the Wolf Moon and then the second is just termed a blue moon.
Even though each moon is very meaningful for people, it can be hard to remember all of their names. Here is a breakdown so that you can remember the full moon names:
This moon is known as the Wolf Moon, Cold Moon or the Hunger Moon. This is a full moon that shows us that winter is there and it is a dark time. There are hardly any animals outside and this moon can remind you that it is cold and that we face challenges but we have to keep pushing forward.
The February Moon is called the Snow Moon or the Quickening Moon. This is corresponding to the winter and the quickening name responds to a time when Spring will be coming soon. This is a time that should be celebrated and a time where there is a transition from winter to spring.
The March Moon is also called the Worm or the Storm Moon. This moon shows us that the weather isn’t always predictable and it can storm, hail, rain, snow or more. It is almost time for the spring equinox at this time and this can mean that there are signs of life that will be coming soon.
The April Moon is also known as the Pink Moon and the Wind Moon. This is a time where you can feel the breeze of spring and see the seeds falling and scattered around. The plants and flowers will start to bloom and it is a time of wildflowers making their appearance.
The May Moon or the Flower or Milk Moon are a time that feminine power comes to sight. This is a time where you should look at the world around you. You can know that summer is right around the corner because you will see new animals being born and flowers blooming.
The June Moon is also called the Strong Sun Moon and the Strawberry Moon. This is a time where you will see strawberry season. This can also show you that the summer solstice is close.
The July Moon is also known as the Buck Moon, the Blessing Moon and the Mead Moon. This is a time of dog days, and you might feel bored. July will remind you thought that you can work hard so that you can prepare for winter to come back in season and it is a time to be blessed and happy.
The August Moon is also called the Corn Moon and the Sturgeon Moon. This is a time where there are fish, corn and planting. This will be a time that you need to lay down your groundwork to get the year started for summer ending.
The September Moon or the Harvest Moon is a time where you begin to harvest. This is a moon that is the last one before the fall equinox and so the rituals work with different celebrations.
The October Moon or the Hunter, Blood or Dying Grass Moon are all there to show you that it is animal slaughtering time. This means that you need to do this so that you can have meat for the winter. The leaves will begin to fall and it will be time for the cooler months to come.
The November Moon or the Mourning, Beaver or Full Frost Moon is one that is a hunting time. This time is where you know winter is on its way. It reminds you that you have to reflect on the losses of the year behind you but you can come into a period of restoration.
The December or the Long Nights Moon is one where it starts the winter solstice. This means the nights will be longer and the days will be shorter. It is a time to start your winter celebrations and to make sure that you set your intentions for the new year coming up.
