Be kind to yourselves over the next few days, folks, because the Sturgeon supermoon is coming and you’ll already be feeling its energy.
There are two supermoons in August, known as Sturgeon supermoons, so we’re in for a wild one.
Here’s when to look out for it and what the heck it means.
When is the Sturgeon supermoon?
There are two this August, the first lands on Wednesday August 2 at 4.31am AEST, then at midday on August 31, there will be a second supermoon.
Why is it called a Sturgeon supermoon?
Astrologers aren’t the only ones who have observed the phases of the moon for centuries and so a lot of these terms actually come from more practical and earthly sources.
The Old Farmer’s Almanac (1792) first described this supermoon as “sturgeon” due to the large number of sturgeon fish that were found in the North American Great Lakes at this time of year.
Not as exciting as I bet you thought it was gonna be but hold up, we’re getting to the witchy part now.
What does the Sturgeon supermoon mean in astrology?
Stay with me here, shit’s about to get heavy.
The Sturgeon supermoon is a time for reflection and reevaluating your life.
Take stock of your current sitch and ponder if there’s toxic energy (people, places, habits) that can and should be released.
Focus on the trauma you have gathered so far this year and the aspects of your life that need healing.
Since it coincides with the Aquarius full moon, it’s a time to make decisions for the greater good. It also encourages you to be a positive force in the world and do the things for the betterment of those around you.
Surprising truths and revelations may come to light so brace yourselves for intense emotions and maybe even some drama.
Follow your intuition, practice self-care and self-love and focus on what you want the rest of the year to look like.
