Welcoming The Harvest Moon

Post image for Welcoming The Harvest Moon

Starting last night the Harvest Moon rose up into the sky, reaching its peak (here in Philly) around 7am this morning.  The Harvest Moon is the full moon closest to the autumnal equinox, which takes place this Sunday.  The names for the seasonal moons come from Native American tribes, who used the moon to keep track of the seasons.  The September full moon comes at the time of the corn harvest, and so was known by some tribes as the Full Corn Moon, because its light allowed for them to finish their harvest. I’ve always been so fascinated by the different moons and their meaning (which you can read about here), and the ways it affects your mood, so I put together this calendar of when the full moons will occur for the next year. Print it out and hang it somewhere so you never miss one!
