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. 😉
Full Flower Moon (05-28-2018)
Names: Flower Moon, Milk Moon, Planting Moon, Merry Moon
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. It is time to splurge a little and have some fun. (www.naturesuburban.com)
This morning, I’ve noticed I had quite a few clicks for two very particular photos from several Middle Eastern and North African countries. After I put some thought into it, it finally dawned on me. Yes, I’m a day late. I will re-post the two pictures of the waxing crescent Moon, which I captured last August. And I captured photos from tonight’s waxing crescent Moon and Venus.

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.
Jupiter is the companion of April’s Pink Full Moon this year.
The Pink Full Moon (04-30-2018)
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 Blue/Sap Full Moon on March 31, 2018
The next Blue Moon will occur on October 31, 2020 … Spooky Full Moon 😉
Tonight’s Full Worm Moon is also the last Moon before the Vernal Equinox (03-01-2018)
The Full Moon in March is the Worm Moon. It is also called Lenten Moon, Crow Moon, Crust Moon, Chaste Moon, Sugar Moon, Sap Moon. It’s the last Full Moon before the vernal equinox.
