🌕 Full Moon

This is also the first of three „supermoons” for 2021, with the moon making a closer-than-usual pass by earth. (It will be closest during the next new moon… when you can’t see it.)

In the northern hemisphere, this full moon was known by early Native American tribes as the Pink Moon because it marked the appearance of the moss pink, or wild ground phlox, which is one of the first spring flowers. This moon has also been known as the Sprouting Grass Moon, the Growing Moon, and the Egg Moon. Many coastal tribes called it the Fish Moon because this was the time that the shad swam upstream to spawn.

In the southern hemisphere this might be the Full Harvest Moon. The harvest of all crops usually gets into full swing in April, along with hunting to stock up the meat cellars. This could easily be called The Full Hunters Moon, or it might be named for a specific fruit that’s prominent in the region, or an animal that’s plentiful and commonly sought for meat.
