Tips on Working with La Luna:

I improvised a list of names for the Southern African Full Moons, which are suited to our cultivation times, crops, seasonal occurrences and weather events. Historically the lunar cycle (lunation) was used to determine the time of year in the lunisolar calendar. Modern religious and spiritual movements have allocated names to the full moons within each solar calendar month. Here I provide a list of Pagan (likely derived from the Celtic and Medieval traditions) names and  Native American (most used) names for the full moon. This is not an exhaustive list and there are many variations. Globally, many cultures have a list of names for the lunar months, those listed here are the most popular.

Tip: You can place your crystals and other spiritual tools in the light of the full moon (just because you can and some extra moonlight ju-ju gives us good vibes)! Remember the moon is technically full (as in, above the 90% mark) for 3 days; i.e. the day before, the day on and the day after = extra awesome ju-ju vibes!
