Full Moons, Seasons, and Celebrations for 2013 - Pagan

2013 Pagan Calendar

Times shown are US Central Time. For Mountain Time, subtract 1 hour; for Pacific Time, subtract 2 hours; for Eastern Time, add 1 hour.
Note: If adding pushes the time to midnight (12:00AM) or past add 1 to the date shown. If subtracting moves the time to before midnight, subtract 1 from the date shown.
Example: Suppose you live in California in the Pacific Time zone; and, the time for a full moon on January 9th is shown as 1:30AM CST. Subtracting 2 hours gives you 11:30PM Pacific Time. Since the time moved from after midnight to before, you subtract 1 from the date. So, for you, the full moon happens on January 8th at 11:30PM PST.
Moon names shown are ones which are fairly popular for full moons falling within the fixed calendar months. There are several traditions which use other names, especially when months are set by lunar cycles.
Seasons, moons, and feasts shown are for the Northern Hemisphere. For the Southern Hemisphere seasons are shifted about six months and so, usually, are feasts as well as full moon names.
