Full Moon Names?

Hi All

I’m just wondering if the Southern Hemisphere has different names for our full moons?

I download and print the full names of the moons each year, but seeing an article on The Pagan Grimoire now about why May’s Full Moon is called the Flower Moon, it doesn’t actually apply to Southern Hemipshere.

Does anybody have any thoughts?

I found this article for you. It’s basically opposite of the northern hemisphere. Hope this helps :blush:

Hi
Thanks so much!
I usually do the opposite for my esbats, but I didn’t think of doing it for the moon phases.
I hope you have an amazing day!

Yes! Great point - as @NoctuaAstra pointed out, they’re flipped for the Southern Hemisphere. I created this pin image this week. If you look down the column and find the month we’re in then jump to the opposite column, that’ll be the moon / intention :slight_smile:

Ex: Wolf Moon is January in Northern Hemisphere = Buck Moon for Southern Hemisphere
