    A dead chunk of rock rolling around our planet, we've watched it for a long time. It speaks to us of the seasons, it helped us understand and control our environment, and it is crucial for our spirit, a visible stepping stone between us and the heavens.

    There are so many names for the moon! The phases of course, full quarter sliver new.

    The month's full moon:
    jan wolf (old, snow)
    feb snow (hunger)
    mar worm (lentin snow sap)
    apr pink (grass, egg, fish)
    may flower (milk, corn planting)
    jun strawberry
    jul buck (thunder, hay)
    aug sturgeon (corn, grain)
    sep harvest
    oct hunter's (blood) [not to be confused with a total lunar eclipse during a full moon called the blood moon]
    nov beaver
    dec cold

    That's northern hemisphere american native influenced. Go anywhere else get a new set of names.

    The blue moon (2nd full in the month), black moon (2nd new in the month), and so on I'm sure.

    But the bad moon is different from all that. Bad moon is not about the moon. Trouble is on the way. Nature moving. Or you might be the cause.

    Nothing in cosmological terms, but it "speaks" to apathist.

    Tracking the year. The word 'month' refers to the moon phases used as a measure of time.

    The moon doesn't cause the seasons. We didn't always have i-phones and light pollution, so watching the sky used to be of great importance. Maybe it helps that I don't have an i-phone and do live in a rural area. And start my day at 4:20 am.

    I like the fairy moon. You might know it as moon rings or moon bows. It is caused by moisture in the air which is nice to see in a desert region like here. Plus its pretty. I'm never quite sure when to use the apostrophe in its.

    I guess he doesn't. You're allowed to talk with yourself as long as you don't answer. Not sure if I just violated that.

    So how does the moon "speak to us of the seasons"?

    Why did not what already did say fail to answer your question?

    And why will you not tell me whether you ever look for the moon? Am I irritating some nerve of yours here?

    Not at all. I just think you are talking a lot of nonsense which doesn't add up to anything more than a vibe-induced evening for you.
