The Full Sturgeon Moon – 26th August 2018
The tail end of August sees a Full Sturgeon Moon. After a long (and welcome) hot summer it is beginning to cool down, but astrology wise they are appearing at their fullest. Along with Venus and Mercury, the Moon will be in full glory in the night skies on Sunday, August 26.
On the night of the Full Moon, the Earth’s companion satellite will be 14 days old and fully illuminated.
This full August Moon should open up communication and awareness. If you are a Aries then you may need to focus on someone else’s needs. Taurus should embrace the full moon energy to open up to that special person they care for. Gemini may feel the daily grind of a certain job becoming a chore. Cancer will find this full moon energy is the perfect time time to drop all fears and embrace a new challenge. Leo shouldn’t ignore their emotions around this time, you have have had a hot summer! Now you can cool off!
Why is it called the Sturgeon Moon?
Certain Native American tribes have called the August Moon the Sturgeon Moon because the sturgeon of the Great Lakes and Lake Champlain were most readily caught during this Full Moon. They also called August’s Moon the Full Green Corn Moon.
Different tribes also used different Moon names. Other examples are the Wheat Cut Moon (San Ildefonso, and San Juan), Moon When All Things Ripen (Dakotah Sioux) and Blueberry Moon (Ojibwe).
In ancient times it was common for people to keep track of the seasons and the resulting changes in nature by giving different names to the different phases of the Moon.
