What is a Full Moon?
Approximately once a month, the moon looks like a complete circle in the sky. This big white pie in the sky is called the Full Moon. Full Moon is a special time to review and renew your life priorities. The lunar vibrations strengthen your resolve and supercharge the healing properties of your crystals.
To learn in detail about the spiritual and scientific definition of a Full Moon, visit the Lunar Eclipse and Full Moons knowledge center.
When is the Sturgeon Full Moon?
The Sturgeon Full Moon begins on August 2 and peaks on August 3, 2020. The exact times and dates depend on where you are located on the planet. To find out the peek time of the Sturgeon Moon according to your region, check the Lunar Time and Date website.
Whether or not you can see the Full Moon this month, the energy is in full swing, bringing vibrations that affect everyone and every crystal. You certainly need to take advantage by charging your healing crystals in the windowsill or garden.
If you are able to practice meditation or crystals rituals, this adds more power to your spiritual benefit.
What is the meaning of the Sturgeon Moon?
Sturgeon Full Moon gets its name from the sturgeon fish that were once plentiful around this time of year in the Great Lakes of North America.
Sturgeon is the common name for 27 kinds of fish that come from the Acipenseridae family. They existed all the way back in the Triassic period, which dates over 245 million years ago. Sturgeons live a long time, up to 150 years!
Sturgeon fish look similar to sharks with elongated bodies that can measure up to 24 feet long. While some stay only in freshwater, others venture into the salty oceans. Unfortunately, sturgeons are on the edge of extinction due to human hunting.
Other names for this Full Moon are Barley Moon, Fruit Moon, Green Corn Moon, and Grain Moon. These are based on the harvest activities of the month.
What is the spiritual meaning of the Sturgeon Moon?
The Sturgeon Full Moon cycle is a time for you to reflect upon your past. Someone or something might come up during this next 29.5-day cycle that triggers a memory or feeling from your past. It is an opportunity to re-explore and remind yourself of the lessons you had learned.
Once you have revisited your learned lesson, you can glide through the month cleansed and renewed, like a sturgeon fish swimming joyfully in a freshwater river.
On the other hand, if you did not yet learn the lessons of the past that have resurfaced this lunar cycle, you may find yourself in salty and turbulent waters. Be careful not to let pride, ego, or foolishness put your sanity on the brink of extinction.
If you are having a hard time learning from the past or understanding the meaning of the Sturgeon Moon, crystal healing under the Full Moon can help you awaken your intuition. Here, you find the answers lying within.
What are moon crystals?
Visit the Moon Crystal Collection to discover gemstone pieces that speak to you and enhance your lunar experiences. Moon Crystals include Moonstone, Selenite, and Labradorite. These three stones vibrate best under the moon and can be used for all lunar events. They come in several forms.
Moonstone: This is the ultimate moon crystal. It is a necessity for all your lunar practices. Moonstone particularly aligns with the Full Moon. It is bright and shiny, illuminating the path before you. Use Moonstone and feel like you are being healed and helped by a thousand moons.
Labradorite: Full of moon magic, this dark beauty flashes with rainbows like the midnight sky flecked with celestial stars. Labradorite aligns with the New Moon, helping you find new beginnings in the darkness. Use Labradorite and feel like you are being guided by your spirit guides, angels, and all the beneficial beings of the unseen world.
Selenite: Named after Goddess Selene, this moon crystal glows with a glorious silky white sheen. Selenite aligns with the crescent moon, protecting your aura through the journeys of life. Use Selenite and feel hopeful that the world is working in your favor because you believe miracles do come true.
Sturgeon Moon crystal of the month
Along with the three powerful Moon Crystals, the stone to use for the August 2020 Sturgeon Full Moon is Fossil. Fossils are your portal to the past, the perfect gemstone for you to re-explore lessons that need reinforcing.
Fossils are the mineralized or preserved remains and traces of animals, plants, and other organisms. Fossils can assist you in moving from the old to the new and to be open and receptive to fresh, innovative ideas. Fossils assist in your quest for transition, transformation, and personal growth. Fossils can help ground the Root chakra.
Fossils also hold the energy and memory of Mother Earth's ancient beings, like the sturgeon itself. Let the spirit of the majestic past bring you great wisdom for the present.
Be sure to order your favorite Fossils now and be in time for the Sturgeon Full Moon. Lots of real Fossils are available for you to pick from at Satin Crystals.
These fossils will serve you best when you charge them under the August 3rd moonlight. You can also use them throughout the entire lunar phase and beyond.
7 Crystal Rituals for the Full Moon
Now that you know a bit about the trinity of moon crystals and the special crystal for this month, learn how to use them under the Full Moon.
Ritual Idea #1: Cleanse, Charge and Program Crystals under the Full Moon
It is ideal to get your Moon crystals even before the Full Moon happens so that you can properly prepare by cleansing them beforehand. After they are cleansed, you will charge them under the Full Moon and then program them with your intention. By doing so, the stones are supercharged as they help you on your mission throughout the lunar month. Do this with your moon crystal balls, shapes, and jewelry.
Ritual Idea #2: Crystal Healing Mandalas under the Full Moon
Instead of just charging your crystals under the moonlight, why not arrange them in a beautiful mandala formation? Create works of art with the stones, and then carefully lay them under the moonlight for charging. If possible, put your mandala in the garden overnight to absorb the healing light.
Ritual Idea #3: Crystal Layouts under the Full Moon
Why not recharge your entire body instead of just your crystals in the moonlight? Lie down in a comfortable place during the Full Moon, preferably near a window or even outside. Place your moon crystals on your body and along your chakras. You can also place them around your body instead, just in case you fall asleep. Not only are your stones getting supercharged for the month, but so are you!
Ritual Idea #4: Dance Under the Full Moon in a Crystal Grid
Form a giant grid around your space, indoors or outdoors. This grid includes a medley of moon crystals in the shape of a circle, square, rectangle, or even a triangle. As the Full Moon rises, dance within the grid of crystals. You are sure to feel supercharged! Have extra time? Meditate in your grid, do yoga in your grid, read in your grid... anything that benefits your soul is right for you, in your grid.
Ritual Idea #5: Crystal Ball Gazing under the Full Moon
Did you know that the moon is revered for its psychic powers? It's no surprise that healers, gypsies, witches, and all that are drawn to the metaphysics do practices under the lunar moon. Grab hold of your Moonstone, Selenite, or Labradorite ball and do Crystal Ball Gazing. You will receive a rush of visions and messages, even more than on an ordinary day.
Ritual Idea #6: Wear your Moon Jewelry during the Full Moon
This is an easy and simple, yet powerful ritual. Make sure you have your moon jewelry on during the Full Moon. The jewelry will charge up nicely, bringing you a chance for new beginnings and a fresh start. If you're on the go during the Full Moon, you'll still have lunar power with you. If you're at home, you should wear your Moon jewelry during all and any of the other rituals you are doing. The more energy you get, the better.
Ritual Idea #7: Create a Moon Elixir under the Full Moon
Why not create a moon elixir that you can use all month long? Moonstone or Labradorite can be used for your elixir potions and drinks, but Selenite cannot. Create a jug of crystal water or crystal oils so you have the moon's energy all jarred up for your convenience and benefit.
There are lots and lots of activities you can do during the Full Moon with Moon Crystals. Check out our Peace not Panic series and the 25 "Stuck Indoor" ritual and craft ideas. Now that you're allowed outside again, do them to the garden if you desire!
