Coquihalla’s 2024 Full Moon Guide: Lunar Magic Unleashed

October 29, 2023

At Coquihalla, we believe in the transformative power of the moon. Full moons, in particular, have a way of illuminating our lives and guiding us through the ebb and flow of existence. As we get closer to the year 2024, we’re thrilled to present the Coquihalla 2024 Full Moon Guide, a celestial journey through 12 magnificent full moons, including a rare seasonal blue moon, eclipses, equinoxes, and more. Join us as we explore the names, significance, rituals, and magic of each full moon, along with the astrological events that make them even more enchanting.

Understanding Full Moons

Before we delve into the enchanting world of full moons in 2024, let’s take a moment to understand the celestial mechanics behind these captivating lunar phases. A full moon occurs when the Earth stands directly between the radiant sun and the moon, bathing our lunar companion in brilliant, uninterrupted sunlight. This alignment results in the moon appearing as a luminous, fully illuminated sphere, a sight that has fascinated and inspired humanity for millennia.

Full moons grace our night sky approximately once a month, with an average cycle of 29.53 days. While we’re sharing this cosmic spectacle, it’s essential to consider the time zones and coordinate universal time (UTC) for accurate observations, as the exact moment of a full moon may vary depending on your location.

A Stroll Through the 2024 Full Moon Calendar

In 2024, we are fortunate to witness 12 full moons, each with its name, character, and connection to the natural world. As we navigate through this celestial calendar, let’s explore the unique attributes of each full moon:
