August 7, 2017 Full Moon at 2:11 pm EST

The Old Farmer’s Almanac calls this moon the Sturgeon Moon because the Native people of the Great Lakes and Lake Champlain knew this was the best time to catch these big fish.  I have also seen it called the Barley Moon or Corn Moon as this moon is also associated with the beginning of the grain harvest and the rebirth we celebrated at Lughbasadh.
Other names for this moon are Dog’s Day Moon (Colonial American), Harvest Moon (China), Fruit Moon (Cherokee), Women’s Moon (Choctaw), Moon When All Things Ripen (Dakotah), Dispute Moon (Celtic), Lightning Moon (Pagan).
Carry the harvest theme over into your magickal workings for the day. What can you sacrifice (harvest) today that will help you in the future. Spiritual and physical health are also good areas to work on at this time.
Sacred Stones: Carnelian garnet, red agate, red jasper amd tigers eye both gold and red.
Sacred Herbs: Chamomile, basil, rosemary, rue
Deities: Hecate, Mars, Hathor, Thoth
Here are a couple of Full Moon Spells I came across:

Magic of the Moon Spell No. 1 (Magic Moon Water)

Leave a jug of spring water out in the light of the Full Moon. This water is excellent for washing your face to impart beauty and purity and can also be used to energetically cleanse crystals and imbue them with the magic of the Full Moon.

Magic of the Moon Spell No. 2 (Prosperity Spell)

What you need:
Silver coin
Cauldron or pot

Half fill the pot with water and drop a silver coin into it. Position the pot or cauldron so the light of the Full Moon shines onto the water. Gently sweep your hands above the surface, symbolically gathering up the Moon’s silver.

While you are gathering the Moon’s silver, say:

La Luna, beautiful Lady of the Moon, bring to me your wealth right soon. Fill my hands with silver and gold. All you give, my hands can hold.

Repeat this chant three times. When you are finished, pour the water upon the Earth. This is most effective done during the Full Moon.
