11 days to full moon
26 days to new moon more...
Different traditions give contradictory interpretations of this day. The Vedic tradition recommends getting actively involved in an occupation, and Avesta even stresses being aggressive. Yet the European tradition states that the day is inauspicious and nothing important should be undertaken.
This full Moon heralded the appearance of the grass pink, or wild ground phlox-one of the first spring flowers. It is also known as the Sprouting Grass Moon, the Egg Moon, and the Fish Moon.
This name came from the herb moss pink, or wild ground phlox, which is one of the earliest widespread flowers of the spring. 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.
