Fish turn up in the most unexpected of places…like the Moon! There is of course a Full Wolf Moon so it is only natural that there should also be a Full Fish Moon. The “Sturgeon” can grow to 20 feet long, weigh 1500 lbs and live for 100years+!! It is a very good candidate for the title of “The Big One!” Unfortunately it could also carry the title of “The One That Got Away!” as it is a critically endangered species that MUST be released after catching…happily it is probably safe to assume this does NOT apply to a certain hungry Ice wolf out on a fishing expedition!
Alternative Names for the Full Fish Moon
Rainbow Fish Moon and Flying Fish Moon also Parriotfish Moon
‘Fish Spoils Easily’ Moon!
‘Soaproot Dig for Fish Poison’ Moon!
‘Moon When the Wolves Run Together’
Alternatively for those who like to howl at the Full Moon as is customary(!)at this time it is also known as the ‘Dog Moon’ or the ‘Dog Days of Summer Moon.’ This refers to a time when the Sun shares the same space in the sky as Sirius the ‘Dog Star’ which rises at the same time as the rising Sun. Caution should also be exercised however as the Aztecs referred to it as “Slaughtering of the Dogs” Moon!!!
