Did You Know Each Full Moon Has A Name?

Full Moon Schedule For The Rest Of 2019

"It is no secret that the moon has no light of her own, but is, as it were, a mirror, receiving brightness from the influence of the sun." - Vitruvius

There are many moons in the solar system, and, although Earth's moon may not be the biggest or most active, it is still mystifying and beautiful. Every night, we have the privilege of looking to the sky and seeing the moon. Not every night shows the same parts of the moon, though. Naturally, the moon goes through phases; from new to waning crescent, to third quarter, to waning gibbous, to full, to waxing gibbous and finally getting to waxing crescent before starting the cycle over every month.

The moon represents our emotions, fears, and desires. During a full moon, the sun is completely illuminating the moon because they are directly opposite each other. This phase is a time of heightened emotions and the desire to use creativity to express oneself. Each full moon has a different name, different attributes and a different zodiac sign.

September 14th, Harvest Moon


The Harvest Moon rises on the night of Friday the 13th and reaches its peak at 12:33 a.m. EDT on the 14th. Since Friday the 13th only happens 1 to 3 times a year, it's not often for a full moon to line up with it exactly. The last time we saw a full moon on Friday the 13th was in January 2006, which happens to be 13 years ago! The next won't occur until August 2049.

This Harvest Moon also happens to be a micromoon; meaning the moon is at its furthest point from Earth. This causes it to look about 7% smaller and 15% dimmer than usual. Septembers full moon is in pisces, while the sun is still in virgo. This is an interesting pairing, considering virgo likes to make clear and distinct seperations between all things, while pisces is quite the opposite.

October 13th, Hunters Moon


The Hunters Moon is one of two full moon names that are not tied to a specific month; the other being the Harvest Moon. It is said that this full moon is called Hunters Moon because it signaled the time to go hunting in preparation for winter. The 2019 Hunters Moon will reach peak fullness on Sunday, October 13th at 5:08 p.m. EDT. It will be visible right aorund sunset and will set at sunrise the next day. This is the only night in the month when the moon is in the sky all night long.

Because the Hunters moon rises from the horizon at sunset, it will look much more orange - and much bigger- than it really is. This full moon will be in aries, meaning it is one that builds towards a dramatic finish. Aries are known for being firey and dramatic.

November 12th, Beaver Moon


The Beaver Moon recieved its name due to the fact that November used to be the month to set beaver traps before swamps and rivers froze. The beaver fur would be used to stay warm for the coming winter. This Beaver Moon is in taurus; it intends to illuminate the hidden aspects of your life and self. Find time for reflection, introspection and recuperation.

December 12th, Cold Moon


This Cold Moon is in gemini, meaning there is a culmination of energy that has been swirling through your social circles all month. It maximizes the importance of not letting things go on too long without clearing them up. On rare occasions, the full moon in December will occur on the winter solstice. This year is not one of those times; the next will be in 2094!

We've all been there. You see that super cute guy on your dating app of choice, his bio is funny, and then, the gut-wrenching feeling hits when you see their political views don't exactly line up with yours. He loves Trump, you can't stand him, or vice versa.

A lot of people will say you can get over politics, but I know from personal experience, as well as this survey, that politics play a huge role in whether a relationship will work or if we're even willing to swipe right on that profile.

CBD Lip Balm Is The Calming Presence You Need In Your Life, Trust Me

I tried lip balm, sleep gummies, and an oil dropper from CBDistillery. Here's the final verdict.


CBD has been on making waves within the wellness space for the last few years. Generally related to the treatment of anxiety, insomnia, and chronic pain, it's growing easier to find small CBD companies who are making products specifically designed to fit your needs. As FDA rules for CBD production can be a little hazy, it's true that not all CBD products are created equally. That's why it's important to look into the manufacturing of whatever you're deciding to try, especially if you're new to taking CBD.

As someone who has tried a variety of CBD products — some victories, some failures — I was thrilled when CBDistillery sent me a package of their favorites. They included a Broad Spectrum CBD Oil Tincture, their Nighttime Gummies, and a CBD Lip Balm.

Kamala Harris Is The Biggest Hypocrite Of The #MeToo Movement

A vote for Joe Biden is a vote for Kamala Harris — and no one wants a hypocrite for a vice president.

Joe Biden just chose Kamala Harris to be his running mate against Donald Trump and Mike Pence in 2020. Now, for many reasons, this is hilarious as I think Biden just solidified his fate and gave the election to President Trump, but that's for another time.

With no sign of the pandemic going anywhere, brides and grooms who planned to be married in 2020 are forced to opt for plan B — if not plan C or D. While some are downsizing their in-person weddings to meet coronavirus guidelines and state restrictions, others are choosing to cancel theirs until further notice and some, well, they're embracing the virtual "I do."

A few weekends ago, I had the pleasure of attending a Zoom wedding for my friend and fellow editor and writer, Kristin Magaldi, and the short-but-sweet ceremony left me in happy tears (surprise surprise). In order to get the scoop on what exactly went into planning a virtual wedding, I asked Kristin to share her best tips so other couples know exactly how to have a Zoom wedding in case they're looking to lean into the video chat vows, too.
