monthly Moon guide keeps you informed about full Moon names, Moon phase
dates, and Best Days by the Moon.
Full Moon Names
The full Moon nearest the
autumnal equinox is called the Harvest Moon (see dates below). This
Moon is not just the full Moon that occurs at the time of the harvest.
It is the full Moon that actually helps the harvest by providing more
light at the right time than other full Moons do.
In years when the Harvest
Moon falls in October, the September full Moon is usually known as the
Full Corn Moon because it traditionally corresponds with the time of
harvesting corn. It is also called the Barley Moon, because it is the
time to harvest and thresh the ripened barley.
Traditionally in Broward County, Florida, September 15th is a BIG seed Planting Day!
