Among the eight Sabbats of the year, are twelve (or thirteen) other holidays celebrated by Pagans and Wiccans all over. These twelve (or thirteen) holidays are the Full Moons of each month. Each month, the Full Moon has a special name for the season it falls in. Sometimes, there may be be two Full Moons in a single month. This is known as a Blue Moon. A Blue Moon occurs when the moon with its 29.5 day cycle appears twice within the same calendar month, due to that month's 31 day duration. Below, you will find details on the different Moons and their celebrated ways.

January: Wolf Moon
A storm is said to rage most fiercely just before it ends, and the year usually follows suit.

February: Chaste Moon
The antiquated word for pure reflects the custom of greeting the new year with a clear soul.

March: Seed Moon
Sowing season and symbol of the start of the new year.

April: Hare Moon
The sacred animal was associated in Roman legends with springtime and fertility.

May: Dyad Moon
The Latin word for a pair refers to the twin stars of the constellation of Castor and Pollux.

June: Mead Moon
During late June and most of July the meadows, or meads, were mowed for hay.

July: Herb Moon
When the sun was in Leo, the worts (from the Anglo-Saxon wyrt plant) were gathered to be dried and stored.

August: Barley Moon
Persephone, virgin Goddess of rebirth, carries a sheaf of barley as a symbol of the harvest.

September: Harvest Moon
Marking the season when domestic animals were sacrificed for winter provisions. Libra's full moon occasionally became the Wine Moon when a grape harvest was expected to produce a superior vintage.

October: Blood Moon
Scorpio heralds the dark season when the sun is at its lowest and the first snows fly.

November: Snow Moon
The sacred tree of the Druids and the Roman God Jupiter is most noble as it withstands winter storms.

December: Oak Moon
The fearsome nocturnal animal represents the "night" of the year.

Blue Moon:
Many consider the Blue Moon to be a goal moon where you set specific goals for yourself. The Blue Moon is a time for spontaneity. Time to let go of old habits and things out of the norm.
