[ [ Moon Phase: Full Moon ] ]
Depending on your location, you will be blessed by the light of this moon phase on Saturday, August 22nd .
The full moon of August is called the Full Sturgeon Moon and marks the ending days of summer. This moon is ideal for banishment and getting rid of old baggage.
Explore the ritual and learn more about this moon on the Spells8 Full Sturgeon Moon Ritual Page.
You can also learn more about the unique meaning of each full moon in What’s in a Full Moon Name?
Every full moon is a celebrated time where the energy of the moon is at it’s most powerful. Now is a wonderful time to charge, cleanse, and absorb the potent energies of the moon.
For additional full moon inspiration, visit What to Do During the Full Moon .
No matter the moon phase, you can find current moon information for your location as well as complementary spells and rituals to draw on its energy on the Spells8 Lunar Spell Page
