Precautions to take during any lunar eclipse
While viewing an eclipse, some precautions should be taken. However, this lunar eclipse can be safely observed without the use of special glasses. Eclipses, according to some traditional beliefs, have a significant impact on a person’s body cycles, particularly those of pregnant women. However, there is no scientific evidence to back this up.
The tradition behind Strawberry Moon
The Maine Farmer’s Almanac first published the Indian names for the Full Moons in the 1930s. The strawberry moon is the full moon in June, or the last full moon of the spring season, according to this almanac. The strawberry moon name is derived from the relatively short season for harvesting strawberries in northeastern North America. In Europe, the moon is also called the Mead Moon or the Honey Moon.
According to reports, the’sweetest’ Moon occurred around the end of June, when honey was ripe and ready to be harvested from hives or the wild. In fact, the term ‘honeymoon’ has been associated with marriage nuptials since at least the 1500s in Europe. The custom of marrying in June arose from the fact that the ‘Honey Moon’ is the’sweetest’ moon of the year.
