It's not uncommon for a full moon to have one, two, three or more names that its associated with. This is because the moon names come from different traditions and for different reasons. To find out a specific moons name you can always check the Farmers Almanac or other similar reference and correspondence tables. Although we no longer live in a time in which most people pay attention to the moon phases or which moon we are in, the moons and the changes in nature still take place as they always have.
Full Sturgeon Moon
The full sturgeon moon is the full moon in August of each year. Here in the Puget Sound and all along coastal areas from Alaska through California it is the beginning of salmon season when the fish begin to come up the rivers from the ocean to spawn. For us here it is easy to associate this moon with a fish. This moon, however, gets its name from the fishing tribes of the Great Lakes area. In their area this is the time of the year with the sturgeon become plentiful and many are easily caught.
Full Corn Moon
The full corn moon can be in August or September. Each year there are 13 full moons and these 13 moons do not follow our man made calendar so sometimes there will be more than one full moon in a calendar month or the moons may not line up the same each year. As our season is beginning to change from summer to fall, the time to harvest is upon us and for Native American tribes in many regions across the country this time of the year was when they would begin harvesting their corn crops as well as other crops. Due to the light of the full moon, harvests can continue late into the night. The corn moon is typically the full moon that is either between Lammas and Mabon or Mabon and Samhain.
Like many other full moons, this full moon also goes by several other names depending on where your from or the tradition that you follow.
Due to its association with fall and harvesting it is also known as the full harvest moon.
During this time of the year there seems to be a haze in the air, likely due to wild fires. As a result the moon can seem to have a red tint to it and has been called the red moon.
It has also been called the green corn moon or grain moon due to the association with the beginning of the harvesting season.
