The Full Corn Moon

September’s Corn Moon refers to the time of year after the autumn equinox when crops were gathered by Native Americans. Corn, pumpkins, squash, beans, and wild rice are the chief Native American staples that were ready for gathering. September’s most familiar moon name however is harvest moon, referring to this full moon’s particularly bright appearance and early rise, which lets farmers continue harvesting into the night.

The Full Blue Moon

Each year, the moon completes its final cycle about 11 days before the Earth finishes its orbit around the sun. These days add up, and every two and a half years or so, there is an extra full moon, called a Blue Moon. The origin of the term is uncertain, and its precise definition has changed over the years. The term is commonly used today to describe the second full moon of a calendar month, but it was originally the name given to the third full moon of a season containing four full moons..

The Full Pink Moon

This April full Moon heralded the appearance of the moss pink, or wild ground phlox (one of the first spring flowers). It is also known as the Sprouting Grass Moon, the Seed Moon, the Egg Moon, and the Fish Moon since it is also the time of year when fish would swim upstream to spawn. Historically, Native Americans living in what is now the northern and eastern United States kept track of the seasons by giving a distinctive name to each full Moon. With some variations, the same Moon names were used throughout the Algonquian tribes from New England to Lake Superior.

The Full Worm Moon

In March, the temperature typically started to warm up. The ground begins to thaw and earthworms begin to appear ; it’s easy to see how native Americans got the name for this full moon. It’s this time of year when the crows begin to appear as well, which is why another popular name for the March full moon is the full Crow Moon. This is also known as the Sap Moon, as it marks the time when maple sap begins to flow and the annual tapping of maple trees begins. To the European settlers, this moon was also known as the the Lenten Moon and was considered to be the last full moon of winter.

The Full Snow Moon
