August's Sturgeon Supermoon is a time for all of us to take a step back and really appreciate everything. Supermoons occur because the Moon has a slightly elliptical orbit around earth. So there is a point every single month when it is at its closest to our planet and thus looks slightly larger in the sky. Join in on this Full Moon Women's Circle to express gratitude for the bounties of nature, and appreciate the fruits of all seasons and the unique beauties of the cycles of life. This will be one of two Supermoons in 2023. There will also be a full blue moon on Wednesday August 30th at 8:35 PM. It will be the second of two Supermoons in 2023. The second August Full Moon will be the full moon in Pisces. This moon is called a full blue moon because it’s the second full moon in a calendar month. It could also be referred to as a super blue moon because the second August Full Moon will also be a Supermoon.
The first August Full Moon will be the full moon in Aquarius. This moon can have quite an emotionally detached quality to it, which makes it good for letting to of emotional attachments and anything that has been restricting you. This will help you break out of patterns of behaviors that no longer serve, and to release all that's not meant for you. This moon is here to help you seek your truth and find faith in where your journey is taking you. Trust your soul knows best and that when you let things fall away, you will be left with the most authentic version of yourself and what is lasting and true for you.
