Tonight’s Full Moon will be a Super Moon, the biggest and brightest Moon of the year. It is also the night of the Perseid Meteor shower, which means there will be lots of shooting stars dancing in the night sky. The August Full Moon is known as the Sturgeon Moon because this was the time when Native Americans would hunt wild sturgeon in the rivers, it is also known as the Corn Moon as this is a time of the corn harvest.
The Super Moon not only affects nature such as the tides and wildlife, but it also affects us. Our emotions will be heightened, our senses will be sharp. Things that were hidden or in the shadows can now be seen.
If you have been feeling stuck in a situation or that everything has been standing still lately, get ready because this Full Moon will be bringing with it a wind of change. The whole of earth is going through a massive transition at the minute. Summer is fading and Autumn is coming in, leaves are changing color and falling from trees, plants and flowers are dying and seeding the earth for next Spring. At the same time, crops in fields are flourishing with the harvest, fruit is now at its most ripe. We will feel this energy of transformation, we should use it to help transform ourselves into what we want to be.
Tonight’s Full Moon is in the constellation of Aquarius. This is a battle between heart and mind. Aquarius is a thinking sign, it deals in intellect and questions everything, but at the same time we want to be creative and let our hearts take over. We can do both, follow your heart, but at the same time be sensible, make wishes, but make them achievable. Aquarius is like an unexpected breeze on a hot summer day. It’s the surprise breakthrough that comes in the midst of struggle, or a startling event that wakes you up, like a cosmic alarm clock.
Change is upon us. It can be heart-wrenching in some ways. It could seem like you’re in the fire of change and there’s an element that’s beyond your control. The energies are about risking it all, to undergo that change that you sense is necessary. The risk comes from not knowing how it’ll change you. Realize that to live out new, promising visions, there’s a need to restructure. A new vision of the future will be illuminated, and it is up to you to decide what you do with it.
Most of all tonight’s Super Moon will be about healing. Let the waves of psychic energy wash over you, cleansing you of negative thoughts and feelings, let go of the past and welcome in the future. This is the harvest and it is time to start reaping what we have sown, your hard work will start paying off. Take the gifts life offers you and make the most of them.
If you have any talismans: Jewelry, signs, symbols, stones, crystals, herbs, or magical tools, put them out in the moonlight to cleanse them and fill them with psychic energy. If you see a shooting star tonight, make a wish.
Have a Blessed Full Moon & May the Goddess watch over you.
