The Full Sturgeon Moon in Aquarius – 3rd August 2020
A new month 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 in the fire sign of Leo and Mars, the Planet of Action is in Leo’s fellow fire sign of Aries, which gives August high energy and which is favourable to getting things done!
Here in the UK, the August Full Moon will head over the horizon around 4.58 pm BST. The Sturgeon Moon is the eighth Full Moon of the year and comes one month after the bright July Buck Moon.
This full August Moon should open up communication and awareness. If you are an 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 to drop all fears and embrace a new challenge. Leo and Aquarius shouldn’t ignore their emotions around this time 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.
