Once you see the first bright red berries, take a walk or drive around your neighborhood. It evokes a time frame that both unites and collapses present, past, and future into an undulating and responsive single unit, something that could best be described as community or family. Economic Botany Chokecherries were a staple of the Native American diet, and are perfect for jelly, fruit leather and homemade wine.

afsq.swanndvr.net/8359-mayores-de-40.php An observable lunar calendar that follows the waxing and waning of the moon will in general have 12 months per solar year, with an extra intercalary 13th month every two and a half years or so. This is because 12 lunar months is shorter than a solar year, and 13 lunar months is longer.
The third of these four moons is known as a Blue Moon. There is another definition for Blue Moons that is a result of a misunderstanding in the s.
This gives 11 months with one full moon each and one with two. This second in a month, so I interpret it, was called Blue Moon. In his article Lafleur was referring to the topical or seasonal year, and not the calendar year. Pruett did not spot this detail and made a false assumption.
Yet because the article was published in a popular scientific magazine with a large circulation, it was from then on cited enough over the following years that this mistaken definition became the accepted one. This definition is based on the Gregorian calendar, and as such is discounted for the remainder of this article. Here we focus on astronomical or seasonal Blue Moons which are defined by the timings of the sky, rather that where the full moon happens to fall on the Christian Gregorian calendar.
The sequence of Blue Moons is very predictable. Over the course of 19 years the patterns of the moon and sun re-align. This is known as the Metonic sequence or cycle. During this 19 year cycle, a season with 4 full moons will occur 7 times. In fact, if you look at the Druidcraft Calendar, you can see that there are 7 leap years in a cycle, and this year is the 6th leap year of this cycle year This means we will have 13 full moons this year, and the Blue Moon will occur this year on the 18th May.
In the 19 year cycle the Blue Moons will almost always occur in the 3rd, 6th, 8th, 11th, 14th, 17th and 19th years. Where exactly in the year, in which season the blue moon will fall is another matter.
Blue moons are worked out based on what are called the astronomical seasons. March - Istawicayazan Wi - Moon of Snow Blindness Spring was on the horizon; however, the next moon phase continued the cold winter tradition. Now, the people were subjected to blinding sun rays banking off of the snow.
During this time, those carrying babies were at their largest before giving birth. May - Wojupiwi Wi - Moon of Planting Warmer weather made its way onto the prairies in this moon phase, and the pleasant temperatures meant it was time to plant.
During this moon, the berries were fresh, tasty and red. July - Canpasapa Wi - Moon of Cherries Blackening Chokecherries and other berries grew black sapa as the summer wore on. This moon phase also marked a time for one of the most sacred Lakota rites … the Sun Dance. The Lakota Sioux people were great stewards of the land, and they used every part of their harvest.
This phase was named for the beautiful shades of autumn leaves. Gi means brown.
