The August Full Moon – 15th August 2018
The mid point of August sees a Full Sturgeon Moon in Aquarius. It is a light moon, yet it feels like it has a certain warmth around it. The Sun is conjunction with Venus and Mars, who are the planets of love and passion! The odd temper may flare but, as in all situations, a compromise can always be found.
Here in the UK, the August Full Moon will head over the horizon around 8.47 pm BST and set the following morning around 6.23 am BST. The Sturgeon Moon is the eighth Full Moon of the year and comes one month after the bright July Buck Moon.
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, don’t let the recent miserable weather get to you either!
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.
