The full moon for August is called the Corn Moon and also the Barley Moon. The colors are red, gold, yellow or orange. The gemstones are peridot, tigers eye, carnelian, garnet and red agate. The August full moon carries on the associations of grain and rebirth. Use herbs when doing your ritual and magickal work. It's the time to harvest what you can now to put aside for later use. This is a good time to focus on your spiritual and physical health. Magickal efforts seem to come a bit easier during this moon. Give back to the spirit world. Burn orange candles and burn sage, lavender and rosemary together for your incense. Plan a ritual to preserve what you already have.
