Tonight’s Full Harvest Moon (09-24-2018)

Harvest Moon, Corn Moon, Barley Moon

The pumpkins, squash and beans are ready for harvest. And the bright light of the Harvest Moon allows us the extra time needed to finish the harvest. The leaves on the trees begin to turn color. The Summer’s sunshine gives way to the Autumn’s darkening evenings. The September Full Moon is a time to find balance in our lives, of settling into a slower rhythm after the Summer’s adventures. It is a time of giving thanks and enjoying the abundance in our lives.

Technically, we don’t have a Full Moon until 9:20 a.m. CDT (3:20 p.m. UTC). But by that time, the Moon is long set in North Texas. So here is the almost-Full Moon of May 2018. πŸ˜‰

Nature is in full bloom and the fertility and abundance of the world is felt everywhere. Earth is celebrating the joyful and playful aspects of life with fresh green leaves, roses and birdsong. The May Full Moon is about romance, joy and fun. It’s a time to celebrate our partners, our friends and our families. It is time to get out into nature.

The Pink Full Moon Before Beltane

This morning, I got up early to capture the Pink Full Moon. The April Full Moon called “pink”, because at this time of the year, the Prairies are covered in pink flowers. I see a lot of Evening Primroses blooming all over the fields, when I bring the girls to school in the morning.

This year the April Full Moon shines bright in the night sky in the morning before Beltane. Beltane/May Day is one of the yearly Sabbath on the Wheel of the Year. It focuses on fertility and rituals like May Pole dancing.

The Pink Full Moon (04-30-2018)

March Blue Moon

This morning at 7:37 a.m. (CDT), we had the second Full Moon of March. Therefore it is called a Blue Moon. This year we had two Blue Moons. The first one occurred on January 31st. Today’s Moon is also the first Moon of Spring. And it is called the Sap Moon. Because, this is the time of the year the sap weeps from the Maple trees.

The Lunar Eclipse of January 2018

It was a perfect morning with no cloud in the sky, temperatures in the mid 40s (7ΒΊC); the Moon was still up and hadn’t set yet. If I hadn’t made the toilet my best friend last night, I would have gone to the field next to Sara’s school this morning. But I needed to stay close by my house. And so I decided to capture the show from my frontyard. Now thinking about it, it actually gives the photos more personal character. I can relate to it more, since I captured it from my own street. Sometimes certain moments work out for the best. πŸ™‚

Next “Blue Moon”

I’ve just noticed, we will have no Full Moon in February. But therefore we will have a second Blue Moon in March for this year. It also depends, were you live on the planet, and at what time the Full Moon phases will be present, f.e. Far East Asia, Australia, etc. had no Blue Moon. Because their Full Moon phase was on February 1, 2018.

The first Full Moon of 2018

Today we celebrate New Year and the first Full Moon of the year 2018. In January it is closest to Earth of this year. Luna will only be 221,559 miles (356,565 kilometers) from our planet at 8:24 pm CST (Central Standard Time in the US), tonight.Β On average, the moon is aboutΒ 238,000 miles (382,900 km) from Earth. That’s why we call it a “Supermoon”. On January 31, 2018 we will have a Full Blue Moon, which will also be a “Supermoon”.
