The Hunt Is On


 

Full moon is rising

Hunters stare in eyes of prey

Winter on doorstep

FULL HUNTER’S MOON

Most of our monthly full Moon names come from Native American and early American folklore, and were originally used to mark the progression of the seasons.

The first full Moon to occur after the Harvest Moon (which is the closest full moon to the autumnal equinox) is the Full Hunter’s Moon. Some folks believe that this full Moon was called the Full Hunter’s Moon because it signaled the time to go hunting in preparation for winter. Since the harvesters had recently reaped the fields under the Harvest Moon, hunters could easily see the fattened deer and other animals that had come out to glean (and the foxes and wolves that had come out to prey on them).

shivers autumn over skin

gone, sun-kissed summer
