– Full Worm Moon – March As the temperature begins to warm and the ground begins to thaw, earthworm casts appear, heralding the return of the robins.
Other names for this month’s celestial body include the Full Sprouting Grass Moon, the Egg Moon, and among coastal tribes the Full Fish Moon, because this was the time that the shad swam upstream to spawn.
– Full Flower Moon – May In most areas, flowers are abundant everywhere during this time. Other names include the Full Corn Planting Moon, or the Milk Moon. so the full Moon that occurs during that month was christened for the strawberry!
A few tribes knew it as the Full Red Moon because, as the Moon rises, it appears reddish through any sultry haze.
