August Sturgeon Moon Worksheet

Note: This post contains potentially problematic practices or language, cultural appropriation, or misinformation. I have been working diligently to decolonize my practice, for which you can learn more about in my article Decolonizing Witchcraft: Racism, Whitewashing, and Cultural Appropriation in Witchcraft and How to Decolonize Your Practice. I believe in documenting my journey in witchcraft and that my readers can learn from my mistakes, so the posts will remain as a learning opportunity.

August's Full Moon is known as Sturgeon Moon, Green Corn Moon, Barley Moon, Fruit Moon, or Grain Moon. Sturgeon Moon comes from the number of sturgeon present in the Great Lakes at this time, which was a staple food source of the Algonquin tribes in the Midwest. The other names, however, originate from the crops being harvested at this time. Corn, barley, fruits, and grain harvests begin at this time, providing food for the upcoming winter months. As such, this is a time to start preparing for the future, harvesting what you can now in preparation for what is to come. Check on your spiritual and physical health, getting rid of what you no longer need and cultivating what will bring you happiness and prosperity in the future. 

This month's Full Moon worksheet contains the usuals of my past Full Moon worksheets, including a to release and cleanse section, a box for your intuition, and a tarot spread. Unlike past worksheets, however, this one can be used every August, as it is based on the correspondences of the moon itself and not other astrological events. The tarot spread for this month features 5 cards focusing on what you should harvest at this time and where you should go in the future.

  1. My husband and I tried to do a little moon-viewing from our balcony, but the cloudy weather here in Chicago made it difficult. The few minutes we were able to see it were absolutely beautiful, though.

    1. Boo! It was cloudy and rainy here too. In fact, that seems like the only weather we have had as of late...rain, rain, and more rain thanks to the hurricanes!

  2. Stellar page. Thank you very much, dear Willow. I especially love when I can interact with/see (in person) elements in my environment that correspond with the name of a given monthly moon. As our neighbourhood is a fabulous mix of forest and farmland, the latter of which includes multiple corn farms, this is especially true for me during this gorgeous summer moon.

    1. I'm so glad you enjoyed the last Full Moon! I hope this one is just as, if not more, enjoyable. I am so ready for fall!
