The full moon for August is called the Sturgeon Moon.
It was named by the Native American tribes as such because the sturgeon of the Great Lakes and Lake Champlain were caught during this Full Moon.
But the name varies according to which tribe you belong to.
The sturgeon moon comes from the Algonquin tribes that populated the Northeast and East Coast of the United States.
This full moon goes by other names, such as:
It also called the Corn Moon because it is associated with grains and harvest.
The colder months are just around the corner and now is the time to harvest in time for storing.
August magick is focused on food preparation.
As a kitchen witch knows so well, whatever she or he prepares in the kitchen is also a form of magick.
It’s not only potions, tinctures, and brews, but also actual food to eat.
Here are some ideas for magickal food you can prepare for the Corn Moon:
Make sure you prepare the food and sprinkle them with your own magickal concoction. Add a personal touch (your secret ingredient, maybe?), for that, is what makes food preparation more special.
And that’s where magick in food preparation lies.
August was about harvesting crops or catching fish for our ancestors. And when they did, they shared whatever they harvested and caught with others.
Our magick spells for this month should focus on generosity and sharing...
...and it’s not all about food.
You have a special talent that was given to you by the Mother Goddess, and with that, you have the power to share it with those who struggle in that area.
Spells for this full moon should focus on sharing abundance with others and of wishing abundance for others.
This is the time for magick that helps people who are hungry, cold, and less-fortunate.
Magick doesn’t have to be in the form of rituals and spells; magick is also an act...
...which means volunteering and donating are also a form of magick.
Think of what sacrifices you can make today that will benefit others?

Have an abundant month of Corn! Blessed be!
