What are the sturgeons?
For the uninitiated, sturgeons are a rare breed of ancient fishes which, if the circumstances are in favour, can live up to a century and grow into massive sizes. The eggs of these fishes are where the lavish caviars served at upscale parties come from.
It is, therefore, no surprise what a full moon named after the sturgeon stands for. Resilience, to survive against all odds, without giving up. There are times when you need to firmly hold your ground no matter what.
You might come across as arrogant or haughty but trust us, there are circumstances that demand such pride, if you know you are holding on to what is right.

Full moons of harvest?
August full moons anyway occupy a special place in Native American astrology. They call the full moons in this month barley full moons. For they coincide with the time of the year when the natives reaped harvests at their millet fields. The philosophy behind naming the moon after the grain might seem complex though it is not really hard to crack.
For, harvest stands for results of efforts. Hard work put in for a year reaps rewards in the form of harvests. But these rewards wary with the whims of nature, for when mother Earth is not in the mood, toil can also be rewarded with poor harvests.
This full moon, therefore, stands for results to be gained, for the effort you have been investing in all fronts. But remember, while your commitment and hard work makes a difference, you are a co-creator. Forces external to you, call it situations or luck are key players that determine how much you reap from what you have sown.
