通勝 Tung Shing (Divination Guide)

Tung Shing is a Chinese divination guide and almanac. It consists primarily of a calendar based on the Chinese lunar year.

The Corn Moon, named by Native Americans to indicate the beginning of the corn harvest season, is the last full moon of the summer.

The "Harvest Moon" refers to the full moon that rises within closest proximity to the autumnal equinox, according to CNN, which means Planet Earth only witnesses one every year. Usually, the Harvest Moon rises in September, but in 2020, September's full moon rose too early, which is why the Oct.


根據CNN的說法,"收割的月亮"是指升起的最接近秋分的滿月,這意味著地球每年僅見證一次。 通常,九月的收割月會升起,但是到2020年,九月的滿月會上升得太早,這就是十月的原因。
