I am not going to go through the calendar and check every date....this stuff makes my head hurt, I will just assume this is right.
So based on this I would start with the winter solstice, uh...June. The month following the Winter Solstice would be the Wolf Moon, so July.
Carrying on with this....my eyes are crossing now...
Which puts you back in the Oak Moon in the month of the Winter Solstice.
Does that make sense? Anyone else in the Southern Hemisphere? Is this how you do this?
I think that the moons must be based on the seasons, not the name of the month. The Wolf Moon was a time that the wolf, among others, was emboldened by hunger and a threat to people trying to survive the winter. This is a winter moon, the name of the month doesn't matter.
I think what screws this up is that everything is based on the seasons, except Christmas which has an arbitrary date of December 25 in both hemispheres.
It's hard to get away from the confusion this causes. I know I associate Yule with Christmas. Just sticking with celebrating the Solstice might help.
