August’s Full “Corn” Moon
Sunday, August 26, 2018 at 4:56 am PST/ 5:56 am MST / 7:56 am 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 grain 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).
The Moon will be traveling through dreamy Pisces so you intuitive antenna may be vibrating. Go easy. While intuition and imagination are a good thing don’t allow yourself to go overboard and let key details slip past.
Carry this months 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.
Honor the goddesses of the full moon today with the scents of chamomile, basil, rosemary and wear silver accented with the sacred stones carnelian garnet, red agate, red jasper and tigers eye both gold and red.
Full Moon Blessings!
