HARVEST MOON: A SQUARE FOR BECKYB #7 – Marilyn Armstrong

MOON TIME – 
A New Square for Becky B

Before we had calendars, the moon was our calendar.

The month was new when the moon was new and was growing old when the moon began to wane.  At month’s end, all was dark.

Full moons have names, too.

We know that the Harvest Moon comes at the time of the harvest and that the Wolf Moon follows a month (moonth) later. The moon makes our seas rise and fall — and makes us loony.

This was the full Harvest Moon on the first day of Autumn, September 2016.

    1. Well, we Jews have a lunar year. In fact, I think so do Muslims (I could be wrong, but I think they are lunar). Until the Romans made it more linear and number-based, time was lunar. And … well … I have all these moon shots.
