Sturgeon Full Moon

It’s the first night of August’s Sturgeon full moon. Join me in my monthly ritual: find your favorite drinking glass, and fill it with a beverage of your choice and toast from your heart. Put all the positive intent you can out in the universe. Toast to living the dream, or dreaming the dream. Toast to family, friends, health, and wellness.

The Full Moon for August is called Sturgeon Moon because Native Americans knew that the giant sturgeon of the Great Lakes and Lake Champlain were most readily caught during this full Moon.

Other names for this Full Moon include ”Full Green Corn Moon,” signaling that the corn was nearly ready for harvest, “Wheat Cut Moon,” “Moon When All Things Ripen,” and ”Blueberry Moon.”

MOON FOLKLORE

  • Clothes washed for the first time in the full Moon will not last long.
  • If you glimpse the new Moon over your right shoulder, you will have good luck.
  • To have a project prosper, start it during the new Moon.
  • Babies born a day after the full Moon enjoy success and endurance.
