MoonPhases Overview | Vidroid Software
Moon Day 19
A difficult, even dangerous, day in all astrological traditions. It is suited only for struggles with enemies, and the destruction of anything outmoded. On this day, good deeds and noble actions may bring a very different result to the one you had been hoping for. It isn't suitable for starting anything important, especially connected with earning money. Marriage is undesirable, and you should also avoid drunks.

Next Full Moon Date: Monday, April 18, 2011
Names Given to the Moon by Other Cultures:
Colonial American: Planter's Moon
Chinese: Peony Moon
American Indian (Cherokee): Flower Moon
American Indian (Choctaw): Wildcat Moon
American Indian (Dakotah Sioux): Moon When Geese Return in Scattered Formation

Full Pink Moon (April)
This full Moon heralded the appearance of the grass pink, or wild ground phlox-one of the first spring flowers. It is also known as the Sprouting Grass Moon, the Egg Moon, and the Fish Moon.

This name came from the herb moss pink, or wild ground phlox, which is one of the earliest widespread flowers of the spring. Other names for this month's celestial body include the Full Sprouting Grass Moon, the Egg Moon, and among coastal tribes the Full Fish Moon, because this was the time that the shad swam upstream to spawn.
