Full Sturgeon Moon in Pisces August 26, 2018

The Sturgeon Full Moon will grace the skies in Pisces on August 26, 2018

The pull of the Full Moon can bring many emotions to the surface.  This can be a sentimental time.  So, if you are starting to feel emotional, know that it’s part of this particular Full Moon.

The August Full Moon is named after the Native Americans who called it the Full Sturgeon Moon.  The natives always observed animal life and felt the animals were great teachers about life.  The Sturgeon is a large fish who is able to survive longer than almost any other fish. It is truly amazing that they can live up to 140 years.  They are native to the Great Lakes. The message is that you can survive and make it through any conditions be it summer, winter, spring or fall. 

The August Moon is known as the Barley Moon – or the Grain Moon – since at the height of the harvest, farmers could work long days into the night by the light of the moon. Other common Native American names for this moon are the Full Red and Full Green Corn moons. Since the moon takes on a reddish hue in the heat of the summer, many people celebrate the beginning of the corn harvest.

For the past century, consciousness as a collective has been on the rise. Each one of us is beginning the quest as a collective to learn how to integrate mindfulness into such a busy world. We keep seeking and peeling away the layers to find the clearest version of the divine in a modern world.

We are full of energy and know we are ready to make a step further. Using the energy of the Sturgeon Moon we can connect better with each other and look for people who share the same interests as us!

Great waves of life are flowing all around us at this time.  August is a powerful month of releasing and reevaluating your life.  It’s time to let go of anything that is holding you back because you want to be open and ready for the new energies that are coming in at this point in the year. 

When you clear out the old you are signaling The Universe that you are ready to embrace all that is vibrant and new.

Start With:

I recommend that you put your crystals in salt for three days prior to the full Moon.  Salt will remove any energies that have collected on your crystals.  You can use sea salt or just regular salt.  On the day of the Full Moon rinse them off and put them in a container outside or in a window that receives moonlight.  The moonlight will charge your crystals and give them the energy/vibration to start working with you in a more powerful way

This moon is also known as the Full Red moon because of the heat that makes the moon appear red and hazy. In European nations, it was named Green Corn Moon after the corns that have green leaves and grains at its highest peaks.

This Moon is associated with the element of Fire and Intense New Energy.

  • Iron and garnet are the mineral totems for this moon.
  • Raspberry is the plant totem.
  • The sturgeon is the animal totem.
  • The color is red. 
  • The Thunderbird clan influences the position.

Iron teaches people in this position about their strength and garnet shows them their heart is the source of that strength. From the raspberry, they learn about their sweetness and the thorns they project to protect this part of themselves from other people. The sturgeon shows them their depth and their need to teach.

Use the Moon’s fiery energy for your spiritual work, using associated fiery colors like gold, yellow, and orange; and gemstones such as Tigers Eye or Carnelian.

I feel that all full moons are a special time for us to connect to the Divine as well as the moon. Do something special in honor of this full moon.

The theme of the Grain Moon is one of gratitude and giving back. A good way would be to bake bread from scratch infusing your energy and intent, and to create three loaves from it. One would be given back to the earth and the animals (thanking the Earth), another donated to a shelter or foodbank (that you may always have enough to share), and a tiny one symbolically placed and left in your freezer (that you may always have enough to spare).

The Full Moon is the time of greatest power and the perfect night for spiritual work, giving thanks, and rituals as it’s a night where energy is in abundance.  The Full Moon is a perfect time to receive an in depth spiritual reading. I offer a special life path reading that is unlike any reading you have experienced before. To Learn More Click Here.

Hi there Cherokee Billie. I have recently received my first and beautiful Shamanic Healing session having had a connection to Native American Indian spirituality for many years. I just ‘happened’ – there are no coincidences right?! – to come across you and your article whilst researching full moons to cleanse my crystals! Not only did I ‘find’ you, and at the right time, but via my Shamanic Healing session, I am ready to let go of an extremely deep routed, dark and painful time with my father when I was a child and there you were with exactly the right guidance on all levels for me! You are an angel. Love and light. Rachelle (Master Reiki Practitioner and Developmental Psychologist).
