The moon inside the word »Monday«
Jörg & Pat | 28th November 2011
In many languages, inside the word for the weekday »Monday« you find the word »moon«, sometimes slightly modified but mostly easily recognised. This does not appear to be a coincidence. But why? Surely, the Moon cannot only be seen on Mondays and no other good reasons comes to mind quickly why a specific day of the weekly cycle should be connected to the Moon.

Why this is so, only becomes clear when taking a closer look at history. The weekdays’ names derive from various cultures depending on the language, often the roots can be found with the Romans. The named their weekdays after the respective Roman Gods:

• Sunday: dies Solis (Sun)
• Monday: dies Lunae (Moon)
• Tuesday: dies Martis (Mars)
• Wednesday: dies Mercurii (Mercury)
• Thursday: dies Jovis (Jupiter)
• Friday: dies Veneris (Venus)
• Saturday: dies Saturni (Saturn)

In German, the names have changed and were matched to the appropriate Germanic or Nordic deities, as for example the God Donar (Thor) for Donnerstag (Thursday) or the Goddess Freya for Freitag (Friday). These connections can also be found in English, for example with the God Tyr for Tuesday or the God Wodan for Wednesday. Furthermore, there are Christian connections in many Romanic languages, where Sunday turned into the day of God, as in Spanish Domingo or in French Dimanche.

The reason being why Monday was named after the moon, lies in the fact that the naming of days started with the Sun (on Sunday) and was continued with the Moon (on Monday). The second most important celestial body was assigned to the second day.

Here is a list of »moon« and »Monday« in different languages:

• English: Moon – Monday
• Old English: Mōna – Mōnandæg
• German: Mond – Montag
• Old High German: māne – mānetag
• Spanish: luna – lunes
• Catalan: lluna – dilluns
• French: lune – lundi
• Italian: luna – lunedì
• Latin: luna – dies lunae
• Esperanto: luno – lundo
• Swedish: måne – måndag
• Norwegian: måne – måndag
• Danish: måne – måndag
• Icelandic: máni – mánudagur
• Albanian: hënë – E hënë
• Laz: Tuta – Tutaçxa
• Japanese: getsu – getsuyôbi (月曜日

That a full moon falls on a Monday, by the way, happens about once or twice per year (sometimes even three times).

____________________

Dear full moon friends,

The full moon will be on Tuesday (or Wednesday for certain time zones)!

*** Our full moon thought for March ***
In view of the lunar cycle one can easily comprehend that development takes place in recurring phases. The new follows the old and vice versa, plenty follows scarcity, abundance follows emptiness. Often, new pathways don’t always run in a straight line and can lead us into unknown territories. Usually, one can’t comprehend how these paths will unfold, we are able to sense their direction and feel drawn toward the lively force that accompanies us already. So let us walk forward and forget just for one moment where we came from …

The exact time of the next full moon is:
Tuesday * 7 March 2023 * 1:40:24 pm
Central European Time (CET)
Moon sign: Virgo 16° 40'

Dear full moon friends,

The full moon will be on Thursday (or Wednesday for certain time zones)!

*** Our full moon thought for April ***
In view of the increasing speed of our lives, the wish for deceleration is expressed again and again. Looking at the abundance of tasks and things that we have to do in a given – and naturally limited – amount of time, we all find ourselves in an enduring run that can quickly exceed our stamina. So, is a focused slowing down the way to go? And is that even feasible in a society that has unlimited demands and sets the pace? ... In this dichotomy between requirements and possibilities, we sometimes have to ask ourselves while looking at the abundance of wishes, which one of them is justifiably in the foreground in a specific moment. Perhaps the art of successfully living a good life, lies in learning to distinguish between what is important and what is less important, and in devoting our time to the treasures that we find in doing so ...

The exact time of the next full moon is:
Thursday * 6 April 2023 * 6:34:36 am
Central European Summer Time (CEST)
Moon sign: Libra 16° 07'

Here you find this time converted into different timezones for other cities:

Dear full moon friends,

The full moon will be on Friday (or Saturday for certain time zones)!

*** Our full moon thought for May ***
Again and again we are taught how important it is to have a goal in mind or a plan. In a result and success-oriented world, goals appear to be the benchmark and their achievement the meaning. And of course there is nothing wrong with success or accomplishments. But what about those who are searching? The ones at a stuck, standing still or waiting? Or those who are on the path but only have a vague idea of the direction and don’t know where exactly their travels will lead them? Maybe this has a profound significance, when sometimes things don’t go as planned. Completely different abilities are awakened in us in this moment, such as being patient, being gentle with ourselves or finding trust in the next step. So life itself becomes the compass and lets us proceed on the path through the unknown land …

The exact time of the next full moon is:
Friday * 5 May 2023 * 7:34:06 pm
Central European Summer Time (CEST)

What has the full moon got to do with Easter?
Quite a lot! Here you find the explanation how the Easter date can be calculated, and the role that is played by the Moon:
Link to this article http://www.fullmoon.info/en/blog/fullmoon-easter.html
Text only below😎
What has the full moon got to do with Easter?

Quite a lot! The date of Easter is actually determined by the full moon. Quite contrary to Christmas, the Easter date is part of the changing holidays and defined as follows: “Easter is on the Sunday after the first full moon in spring.”

At first glance, this appears to be quite easy: one look at the calendar, beginning of spring is mostly on 21st March and then simply search for the next full moon and the weekend after will be Easter.

Example for 2023
Beginning of spring: Monday, 20th March 2023
First full moon in spring: Thursday, 6th April 2023
Easter: Sunday, 9th April 2023

Upon close inspection however, it is rather more complicated. On the one hand, the beginning of spring could fall astronomically on 19th, 20th or 21st of March, but for calculation purposes, a fixed date is used, being 21st March. On the other hand, there are various exceptions in the computation that will reflect the so called ‘Easter paradox’ in certain years, namely always, when Easter takes place on a date that goes against the original rule.

Anyhow, it is good to know the interval in which the Easter date has to fall: the earliest possible Easter date is 22nd March (will happen next in 2285), the latest possible Easter is the 25th April (will happen next in 2038).


But the real interesting question is, why this Easter date has been defined as a changing holiday rather than a fixed date? We remember to have read (confirmations or objections are welcome!) that the connection was to try and prevent a solar eclipse occuring on Good Friday, as this would have been associated in the past with fear, Armageddon and gloom. By defining Easter in “one week after full moon at the latest”, it could be eliminated because a solar eclipse can only take place at new moon, just like a lunar eclipse can only occur at full moon.

Enough of theory now … wishing you a happy Easter! 🙂

Is the moonlight white or blue?
A nightly scenery usually appears to be bluish. Why this is so and yet different, you can find out here:
Link to this article
http://www.fullmoon.info/en/blog/moonlight-colour.html
Is the moonlight white or blue?

As is generally known, the moonlight is actually sunlight reflecting from the surface of the Moon and reaching us here on Earth. You ask yourself the question, whether the moonlight may have a different colour than the sunlight, especially since a nightly scenery usually appears to be bluish. Also movie scenes, are portrayed in blue and so are many pictures and photographs. We would like to forestall the answer: the moonlight is nearly white. The night appears blue due to other reasons.

On the one hand, there is the twilight – which is also referred to as “blue hour” – that lets us experience the beginning and the end of the night in blue, and hence establishes the colour blue firmly in our consciousness. Therefore, this is the colour in our mind. By the way, the bluish twilight is caused by the ozone layer of the atmosphere.

On the other hand, the sensory cells inside the eye that are responsible for colour perception (so-called cones), are kind of put to sleep due to the approaching darkness, while the cells that enable the brightness perception (so-called rods) are activated more. Because the rods mainly react to blue light, the perception of this colour spectrum is enhanced at night. This is called the Purkinje effect, named by a Czech anatomist Jan Evangelista Purkyně.

So, the blue light of the night is only blue from our perception. The moonlight has no part in this. However, if people might feel blue at night, this could possibly have other reasons … 😎

Any suggestions for any moon related lexigrams/lexigrams?
In fact any moon not just ours😎
