Rose Moon

The moon will be full tonight and will be at its fullest in the early hours of Friday morning.

One of the magical names for this full moon is Rose Moon, according to the online Pagan Calendar, which seems wonderfully romantic to me. Other sources say that the Rose Moon actually happened last month, in June, and that July's full moon is better called the Mead Moon.

Mead is sometimes called the drink of lovers and is supposed to be a natural aphrodisiac. So, whatever name you give to the full moon, as Friday is also associated with the Goddess of Love I hope tomorrow proves to be a wonderful day for everyone who is in love - full of passion and beautiful surprises!

Lovely. I've never heard of 'Rose ' moon before (It's the Mead moon to me) but how wonderfully appropriate.
