On August 18, 2016, a full air moon will appear in Aquarius, the opposite of the sun sign Leo. It’s known as Corn Moon, Barley Moon or Sturgeon Moon. In Wiccan traditions, this full moon is an ideal time for rituals and spells to promote networking, resolve disputes and use your personal power for the greater good.
As this full moon occurs in the western hemisphere early in the morning of Aug 18, (5:27 a.m. in Toronto and New York), and mid-day in most of Europe, you can perform your rituals and leave your tools and talismans to charge on the night of August 17th. In Eastern Australia, the moon reaches its peak at 7:27 p.m. on the 18th, so you can perform your ceremony at that time.
