12 days to full moon
27 days to new moon more...
A day for laying foundations. Good for beginnings, especially for long term issues such as conceiving a child or laying the first bricks of your future house. It favours moves, trips, long journeys and buying property, but it is a day when financial machinations or theft will bring trouble.
Some Native American tribes knew that the sturgeon of the Great Lakes and Lake Champlain were most readily caught during this full Moon. Others called it the Green Corn Moon or the Grain Moon.
The fishing tribes are given credit for the naming of this Moon, since sturgeon, a large fish of the Great Lakes and other major bodies of water, were most readily caught during this month. A few tribes knew it as the Full Red Moon because, as the Moon rises, it appears reddish through any sultry haze. It was also called the Green Corn Moon or Grain Moon.
