WHY AUGUST'S FULL MOON IS ONE OF THE BEST

I’ll explain why it’s a special weekend of Moons worth watching.


On all three nights, the Moon will be tangled together with the planets Jupiter and Saturn. Very close to Saturn on Friday night, right amidst both brilliant Jupiter and less-bright Saturn on Saturday, and forming a line with them when it’s full on Sunday. But there’s more going on than even that. This Full Moon is very much like a Harvest Moon of September. Its behavior is nearly identical.


This Sunday night’s full Moon (August 22) shows that same effect of rising at nearly the same time for several succeeding evenings. It’s every bit of a dramatic happening as the Harvest or Hunter’s Moon. Yet it has no special name relating to this, and gets no notice in the media.


August Full Moon is called the Sturgeon Moon or Corn Moon by the Native Americans for its Harvesting.


This weekend, when you gaze at the full Moon, contemplate the unique way that it mimics the behavior of the Harvest Moon and, indeed, acts perfectly identical to the Hunter’s Moon.


Happy Full Moon Blessings
