The full moon is on Wednesday, August 5th.
Owing to the approximately 500 fires now burning in British Columbia, the moon in my sky looks more like a harvest moon - glowing a bright orange from all the smoke and haze.
The August full moon is often called the Sturgeon Moon. The Native American fishing tribes gave the August full moon it’s name, due to the fact that Sturgeon were more easily caught this time of year. The Sturgeon are large fish that used to be plentiful in the Great Lakes and other larger water bodies, until they were fished nearly to extinction for the collection of their roe (as caviar.)
This moon is also called the Green Corn Moon or Grain Moon, likely as a note of the first harvest.
I'm getting my large serving tray out to hold all my crystals that I'll be charging under the moon.
What are your plans for the full moon?
