August 3 2020 – Full Sturgeon Moon occurs on Monday, but the Moon will appear full the night before and after its peak to the casual stargazer.
Full Sturgeon Moon of August!
The Moon will be located on the opposite side of the Earth as the Sun and its face will be fully illuminated. This Full Moon was known by early Native American tribes as the Sturgeon Moon because the large sturgeon fish of the Great Lakes and other major lakes were more easily caught at this time of year.
August 3 2020 – Full Sturgeon Moon – Full Green Corn Moon of August!
This Moon has also been known as the “Green Corn Moon” and the “Grain Moon.” “Fruit Moon,” and “Barley Moon,” are also names of the August Full Moon as they are all inspired by various crops that can be harvested in August. The Green Corn Ceremony was typically held in late June or early July, and the Mature Green Corn Ceremony would take place 45 days later, according to Cherokee.org.
Full Barley Moon of August!
Europeans called this Full Moon, as the end of Summer approaches, the “Barley Moon,” for the harvesting and threshing of the barley. This is a good month to focus on your spiritual and physical health. It’s the time to harvest what you can now to put aside for later use.
August 3 2020 – Full Sturgeon Moon – Full Fruit Moon of August!
This Moon is also known as the “Fruit Moon” because this is the time of year when the apples, plums, peaches, grapes and berries are at their ripest and heavy with juice. Just as the fruit turns to it’s most saturated hue so will the sky begin to arrest us with displays of opulent color, signaling the days turning shorter. Even as we enjoy nature’s visual display coupled with a perfectly ripe piece of fruit in the warm summer night, other perfectly ripe fruit is falling onto the ground uneaten and beginning to decay, representing the many stages of life.
Connect with what Brings you Joy!
During this Full Moon of August, take the advice of Native Americans and connect with what brings you joy and share that with others. Don’t overthink; just find pleasure in your ability to be you. Your focus will be to balance your mind and body through creativity, through play, and through movement.
The August 3 2020 – Full Sturgeon Moon is A Time of Crazy Emotions!
The Full Moon represents our emotional body and subconscious. The part of us that we typically keep hidden or buried under our social personality. During the time of a Full Moon, all of that comes to the surface, asking to be seen. This is why we feel extra emotional, or as some say, the crazy comes out.
Alignment of the Planets!
By the evening of the Full Moon, as evening twilight ends, Venus will be near its brightest but will be setting in the west-southwest, Jupiter will have regained its customary position as the second brightest planet in the sky, appearing in the southwest about 12 degrees above the horizon.
A Time of Potential Possibilities!
The energy of the Full Moon is heightened at this time, and emotions, feelings, mental processes, dreams etc. are all amplified. When the Sun and Moon oppose each other during a Full Moon, it can cause tension and awkward friction, but at the same time, bring a greater expansion of visions and potential possibilities. This is a compelling time of gratitude, gracefully acknowledging the beauty of life itself, and all you have brought into existence.
God Bless the Moon!
Once you start looking up and observing the Full Moon, you’ll want to get outside more and more to get a better view. This is a wonderful time to enjoy the fresh air and gain perspective. Remember how tiny you are—how your small, significant life is connected to all others. Recite the words to that ancient lullaby: “I see the Moon and the Moon sees me, God bless the Moon and God bless me.”
