The August Full Moon

The August Full Moon 2012
The August full moon has many names, in Colonial America it’s the Dog Day’s Moon, in China its the Harvest Moon, Native American Indian’s (Cherokee) called it the Fruit Moon (Choctaw) called it Women’s Moon and (Dakota Sioux) said its was the ‘Moon When All Things Ripen‘. The English Celtic name is the Dispute Moon, whereas Medieval England named it the Corn Moon, but Neo Pagan named it the best for me the Lightening Moon.
