How appropriate that the Sturgeon Full Moon August 3 is in the sign Aquarius. The symbol for Aquarius is the Water Bearer, symbolically and eternally giving life and spiritual food to the world. The water from the vessel washes away the past, leaving room for a fresh, new start. The sign of Aquarius is forward-looking and growth-oriented
After the rough month of July the sturgeon is swimming into our lives to show us that we are stronger than we think. The sturgeon is a tough fish that can live up to 140 years. You survived last month and you will make it through the coming months this year.
This should be of great encouragement as so many people are going through difficult times in their lives and this Full Moon is all about survival. If you are feeling despondent take time and do some prayers….do this for the good of all living beings.
Archangel for This Full Moon
Archangel Asariel watches over your emotions and the ebb and flow of life, just like the Moon, encouraging creativity and teaching through dreams and inner wisdom.
Asariel is a great ally in the discovery of truth. He shows you what is true and what is just a rumor. He guides and protects you. So if you feel that you have negative energies or forces coming against you, rely upon this Archangel to help you.
I feel that the main purpose of acknowledging the Full Moon, by prayer or ceremony, is to give you that lunar dose of spiritual energy to get you through to the next full Moon.
Lions Gateway August 8
Every year on and around the 8th day of the 8th month of the year (August 8th), there is a massive cosmic alignment called “the Lions Gateway”. The Lions Gate is a time of increased cosmic energy flowing between the physical and spiritual realms. This is an opportunity for a powerful leap in tuning into the new energies of upgrade, realignment and the codes of activation.
The Lions Gate has ties to ancient Egypt and for thousands of years has been observed and honored as a time of a great energetic influx and activation!
This gateway is marked by an alignment between the Earth and the star Sirius. As the star Sirius rises in the sky, Orion’s Belt directly aligns with the Pyramid of Giza, and from our perspective on Earth, it appears that Sirius (the brightest star we can see) comes closer to the Earth.
Many energies (at this time) are pouring into our planet and we need to be sure we receive only the positive energies. Be aware of where in your life you are embodying joy, responding with love, and feeling excited. And take steps to let go of the things that are limiting or draining.
Take this opportunity to let go of old pain, release what bogs you down, and open your mind to renewed flexibility and clarity.
Take time on August 3 and August 8 to go to a quiet place to pray, meditate or anything else that feels right to you and trust that all that is Divine will be there for you. Great waves of life are flowing all around us at this time.
August is a powerful month of releasing and reevaluating your life. It’s time to let go of anything that is holding you back because you want to be open and ready for the new energies that are coming in at this point in the year.
