Moon Day 22

Different traditions completely disagree on how to treat this day. The European tradition takes it as particularly inauspicious, but suggests that those who were born on this day have the potential to become good people. The Vedic tradition considers it auspicious for trips and transport, whilst Globa recommends it as a day to study sciences, and master a specific subject.

Names Given to the Moon by Other Cultures:

Full Strawberry Moon (June)

The Algonquin tribes knew this Moon as a time to gather ripening strawberries. It is also known as the Rose Moon and the Hot Moon.

This name was universal to every Algonquin tribe. However, in Europe they called it the Rose Moon. Also because the relatively short season for harvesting strawberries comes each year during the month of June . . . so the full Moon that occurs during that month was christened for the strawberry!
