In Native American cultures which tracked the calendar by the Moons, December’s full Moon was known as the Full Cold Moon. It is fittingly associated with the month when winter cold fastens its grip and the nights become long and dark. This Full Moon is also called the Long Nights Moon by some Native American tribes because it occurs near the winter solstice—the night with the least amount of daylight. In December, 2016, the winter solstice occurs on Wednesday, December 21 at 5:44 A.M. (ET). Full Moon: December 13, 7:05 P.M.
The most interesting of the year, it’s a “Perigee” (or Supermoon) when the Moon reaches the point in its orbit that is closest to Earth, closer than it’s been in 70 years. It will appear up to 14% larger and it won’t come this close to Earth again until November 25, 2034. November’s full Moon was called the Beaver Moon by both the colonists and the Algonquin tribes because this was the time to set beaver traps before the swamps froze, to ensure a supply of warm winter furs. It was also called the Full Frost Moon by Native Americans. November 14 8:52 AM ET
The October full moon is the Hunter’s Moon, and what’s more it’s a supermoon which means it is perigee, the moon’s closest point to Earth in its monthly orbit making it look brighter and full-looking for several nights October 14-16. Native American tribes referred to it as the Full Hunter’s Moon as it was the time to go hunting in preparation for winter. Also called the “Travel Moon” and the “Dying Grass Moon.”
Many of the Native American tribes' staple foods, such as corn, pumpkins, squash, beans, and rice, are ready for gathering at this time. The strong light of the Harvest Moon allowed European farmers to work late into the night to harvest their crops. The Harvest Moon does not always occur in September. Traditionally, the name goes to the full moon closest to the autumn equinox, which falls during October once or twice a decade. Sometimes the September full moon was called the Barley Moon, Corn Moon, Moon When the Plums Are Scarlet -Lakota Sioux Native American, Moon When the Deer Paw the Earth -Omaha Native Americans, Moon When the Calves Grow Hair -Sioux Native Am. September 16, 3:05 P.M.
Some Native American tribes called the August Full Moon the “Grain Moon" because this is when the grains have ripened and harvested or "Sturgeon Moon” because they knew the sturgeon of the Great Lakes and Lake Champlain were most readily caught. Other tribal name preferences for August are: “Full Green Corn Moon”, “Wheat Cut Moon” (San Ildefonso, and San Juan), or “Moon When All Things Ripen” (Dakotah Sioux) or “Blueberry Moon” (Ojibway). Full Moon: August 18, 5:26 A.M.
Weird Tidings Odyssey - Part III Care2 problems in action ... still, I can see all my Care2 mail but when I click onto a mail it does not open, so I read only the titles from e-mails. I can't see list of 'green stars' to give people any back. Leaving comments is a one big lottery, usually they don't show up. I hope this will clear up in about a few days. Dear Patricia all 'green stars' are here waiting for you I just wanted to send some love over your way and let you know how much I appreciate you! Monika xoxo
