August Full Moon with the stars Deneb, Iota and Theta of the constellation Capricorn
The August Full Moon behind the St. Sophia Ukrainian Greek-Catholic Church
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.
Tonight, the waxing crescent Moon and Jupiter dance together in the western night sky.
The Waxing Crescent Moon and Jupiter (07-28-2017)
Unfortunately, I missed the Full Thunder Moon of July. Because it was lightning and thundering in North Texas. That’s alright. I will try next month, again. But I caught a glimpse of the rising waning gibbous Moon of July. 🌖

Strawberry Full Moon (06-09-2017)
Strawberry Moon, Rose Moon, Strong Sun Moon
The leaves on the trees have returned, making the world a lush green. The frantic Spring energy has been replaced by a lazy Summer breeze. The animals go about raising their young as food becomes plentiful.
The June Full Moon is about our dreams and inner visions. The Summer energy calls us to explore, to visit the deep parts of the forest, to listen and connect with our inner voice. It’s a good time to start a dream journal or create art.
Before I drove Sara to school, I captured the waning gibbous Moon this morning. It still seems almost full. But it is past that stage, since the Full Flower Moon was yesterday afternoon (US time). I’ve noticed a lot of birds flying from one place to another this morning as well. And I’ve watched a Great Blue Heron flew east toward its favorite fishing spot, while the sun was rising.
The setting waning gibbous Moon (05-12-2017)
Like last month I’m not sure, if we will have overcast tomorrow evening. Since the sky is clear enough, I captured a photo of the Moon while it is still in is Waxing Gibbous stage tonight.
Tonight’s Waxing Gibbous Moon … It’s almost full. (05-09-2017)
