August! The time to enjoy the warm heat of the summer sun, but wait, it’s also the time to welcome the sturgeon moon. Rooted in nature, this summer month has a great history that dates back to Native American legends. But it’s also a time to appreciate and be grateful for where you come from what you have achieved.
The August moon is named after the sturgeon fish. According to The Old Farmer’s Almanac, August is a popular time to catch sturgeon in the Great Lakes and Lake Champlain. Although there was once plenty of sturgeon in the Great Lakes and wide different varieties, they are much rarer now. However, their legend lives on through this summer moon.
The Sturgeon Moon arrives in Aquarius and will be at its peak on Thursday, August 12, 2022, at 2:36 GMT.
The August full moon is a time for all of us to step back and appreciate everything you have. The moon is a symbol of gratitude for the bounty of Mother Nature. It asks us to step into the flow and appreciate of all the seasons and the plentiful beauties of the cycles of life.
