An exceptionally auspicious day, which, unfortunately, does not happen every lunar month. It favours all beginnings, and helps the sick to recuperate and improve. It also favours a successful, smooth ending to all matters which have reached their final stage. It is important to be generous, and to recognise and reward everyone's contribution.
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.
