The full moon phase for this month will be on August 10th (18:23 UTC.) Guess what? This month’s full moon is this year’s “super moon” — it is ultimately the largest moon we will have for 2014. This is because on Aug. 10, the moon will be it’s nearest to the earth for the entire year.
The Perseid meteor showers flash across skies annually in August when the Earth passes through debris trails of shattered comets. Set to peak Aug. 11-13, this year’s event coincides with a Supermoon, a moon that shines 30 percent brighter than a normal full moon. The Supermoon will begin to reach fullness on Sunday, Aug. 10.
The August full moon is also known as Full Sturgeon Moon named after the Native Americans. The Sturgeon moon is remarkably named after the sturgeons of fish available around the Great Lakes, however the tribes in the southern part of the Americas name it the Full Red moon because of the heat the moon seems red and hazy. In European nations it was the named Green corn moon after the corns appear to have green leaves and grains are at its highest peaks.
When the Moon is full, the pull linking of the Moon on one side of the earth and the Sun following creates and unbalanced draw and as humans since we are 80% water it many have a great affect on our own bodily water levels including the earths atmosphere.
This is also known as the second moon of Shawnodese, Spirit Keeper of the South is the Ripe Berries Moon (July 23 to August 22) position on the Native American Medicine Wheel. Iron and garnet are the mineral totems for this moon, raspberry is the plant totem, and the sturgeon is the animal totem. The color is red, and the Thunderbird clan influences the position.
Iron teaches people in this position about their strength and garnet shows them their heart is the source of that strength. From the raspberry they learn about their sweetness and the thorns they project to protect this part of themselves from other people. The sturgeon shows them their depth and their need to teach. The Ripe Berries Moon teaches them how to work from the heart center, how to demonstrate affection, how to face fears, and how to develop leadership abilities. This moon helps develop courage and power. People experiencing the sturgeon energy need to guard against impulsiveness, arrogance, and a tendency to dominate any scenario.
Love meteor showers? Better plan to stargaze on the on the evening of Aug. 12 towards the early morning of August 13. This year’s Perseids meteor shower will peak on these said dates.
The Perseids meteor shower occurs from July 17 to around Aug. 24. When this event peaks, the night sky becomes a beautiful backdrop to more than 60 meteors at a time.
This month’s new moon, on the other hand, will occur on the 25th at 12:23 UTC.
Things To Do During A Full Moon!
• Cleansing Your Spirit
• Clean out closets and drawers
• Clean off the clutter around your sleeping area

You can take your time and do this cleaning over the next few weeks. It will benefit you enormously on your spiritual path.
I feel that all full moons are a special time for us to connect to the Great Spirit as well as the moon. Do something special in honor of this full moon.
