Super moon, man!

Tonight’s full moon will be the first of three supermoons that will occur over the next two months. What is a supermoon, you ask? Well, it’s a moon that’s near it’s closest point to the Earth so it looks big. Super!

As I write this post, the supermoon is shining through my bedroom window. Man, it’s a supermoon!

I couldn’t resist!

Let’s move on to her name, the Sturgeon Moon. North American fishing tribes get the credit for naming August’s moon. Seems sturgeon were caught more easily during the month of August. Here on the Concord River we don’t have sturgeon, so we’ll call this moon the Carp Moon, since the carp are HUGE and abundant, and, if I wanted to, I could probably catch them with my bare hands.

Even the painted turtles have to fend off the carp when it’s feeding time.

Who do I call to get August’s moon renamed?

Blessed be :}

Wondering, searching, and wandering, I'm a single mother with a desire to get it right in my lifetime. The flow of the river feeds my inner goddess and fuels my soul. Blessed be. :}
