Stars & Constellation In August

Since the sky is clear, I used the opportunity for doing some stargazing tonight. I’ve got a couple good shots of the Big Dipper (in Ursa Major), the Little Dipper/Ursa Minor, the Spoon & Tea Pot (in Sagittarius) and Scorpio.

August Full Moon ~ Sturgeon Moon

Sturgeon Moon, Green Corn Moon, Grain Moon, Red Moon

The grain ripens in the fields and the sturgeons become plentiful in the lakes. The Moon takes on a red hue from the Summer haze. It is the beginning of the harvest season and the time to begin preparing for Winter.

The August Full Moon is a time of balance between hope and fear. We have harvested some things but the remaining crops are still in limbo. We take the steps we can to ensure success in our lives while trusting that the universe will meet us halfway.
