Happy Full Sturgeon Moon in Aquarius, August 3, 2020 August 3, 2020 22:40 6 Comments
“August’s full Moon was traditionally called the Sturgeon Moon because the giant sturgeon of the Great Lakes and Lake Champlain were most readily caught during this part of summer."
Lodolite, also called Inclusion Quartz, is Clear Quartz that has traces of Chlorite, Hematite, Feldspar and other minerals that create bursts of color within the crystal. They appear to create a garden landscape magnified through the Clear Quartz. Lodolite is a Crown Chakra stone and can be used to heighten intuition and assist one in connecting to their spirit guides and angels. It’s known to be a shamans stone and has been used to increase spiritual perceptions and connect with beings in the spirit rhealm. Lodolite is a wonderful stone to use while meditating, especially when trying to recall past lives. Its calming, soothing energy helps relax one into a meditative state. It is extra potent to help you manifest your desires through meditation. Lodolite helps to release past life and early life trauma by healing the emotions that cause stress and fear in the present moment. Lodolite forces one to acknowledge and address all emotions, good and bad, and helps to release anything that no longer resonates. Lodolite protects the wearer from negative energy and provides a sense of positivity. It also helps one through times of transition. It helps one to “age gracefully” by accepting the body’s transitions as it goes through the aging process. Lodolite helps one create new ways of understanding their old ways of doing things. It helps one to lucid dream, see auras and protects while astral traveling.
On the morning of the full moon, I found a dead seabird on the ground near where I live. It was black with webbed feet and white tipped tail feathers and it appeared to be a juvenial. It's long neck was gracefully swooped downward tucked into it's chest in a peacfeul pose. It looked like it had recently passed, and I immediately swooped it up to give it a better resting place. I set it underneath a tree right by the water on the edge of the bay and did a ceremony for the bird. I felt sure that it was the full moon spirit animal. I tried to identify the sea fowl, but I couldn't find anything quite like it in the duck or cormorant family. Although I never did identify it, my search results for "Oregon black and white sea bird" resulted in the Tufted Puffin. It hit me that I already knew this full moon's spirit animal and it was, in fact, a seabird.
I had encountered Puffins for the very first time a few weeks ago on our quest to see the comet, Neowise. Scott and I took the van out for a late night venture and watched the puffins fly and play at Haystack Rock in Canon Beach during the sunset. The Puffins come to Haystack Rock every year to mate and raise their young. Their habitat is very protected by the people of Cannon Beach and you will find statues and paintings of Puffins around the town. We did see Neowise that evening, through our binoculars, we could see it emerge as the sun set and the sky turned dark blue. We watched it until we tired and then spent our very first night in the van together. We woke up early and went to see the Puffins again on our way back to Astoria. They're so magical! Watching them fly is mesmorizing, they dive off Haystack Rock and then take flight, they fly around the rock in circles and dive into the ocean. They even circled around us several times. One got as close as 10 feet from us, but we didn't have the camera ready. The best time to see the Puffins is between May and Labor Day, and we just happened to be there at the right time. Here's a link to Cannon Beach's official website to learn more about the Puffins they so proudly love and protect.
"According to, www.auntyflo.com,
"Puffin shows up as a spirit guide when:You need power to thrive in darkness.

Alternatively, Pelican symbolism teaches us that we should take it easy occasionally. Like the Manatee, the need to slow down a bit is especially real in the most hectic times of our lives. Thus you should make sure that you make an effort to float through life and float through your emotions. Savoring each moment is essential. Therefore, you must take the time to enjoy what life has to offer in each moment.
Conversely, sometimes it takes a team to accomplish the goals that you have set for yourself. In other words, do not be afraid to ask for help. Moreover, recruit what you need to get the job done."

I chose Squid as this month's lunar spirit animal because I encoutered one in the Pacific Ocean a day before the full moon. My friend scooped it up out of the ocean and it squirted water on me. It started out white but turned this red color after a minute of being held. I took this photo right before we set him free. According to ourangelsguidance.ca ,"Squid guides movement and productivity at night and aids in finding what is hidden. As with Octopus, the art of camouflage is important. She teaches adaptability to situations and concealment until the moment is right. Squid aids and balances the emotional realm. Communication may include light and color at this time. Is it time to fulfill or embark on artistic endeavors? She will show how to be aware with the skill of retreat. Curious and observant, Squid medicine helps in transitioning between the un/subconscious worlds leading you to explore more facets of your spiritual being."

A record keeper is the name for a crystal with a trigonal crystal structure, or triangles, that appear to be “etched” as growths or indentations onto the surface of the stone. Often times, there are many triangle shapes etched within other triangle shapes, creating a lattice patterning of triangles.
They’re said to hold the energetic imprint and ancient wisdom and knowledge of the Universe and past civilizations here on Earth. Many believe that they were programmed by past civilizations, like Atlantis and Lemuria. They act as keys to unlock information about past lives. They were believed to be formed during the Ice Age through air bubbles that froze over time. Record keepers are exceptional tools to use in mediation. Ask your record keeper questions and to show you its stored knowledge. Record keepers provide a sense of deep peace and universal understanding.
According to, spirit-animals.com, Otter's messge is, "It's time to let go of control and surrender to the moment. Allowing the universe to move in its own way will often manifest your dreams beyond your wildest expectations."
Otter gives us, "the knowledge that you have to take care of yourself first to be of use to others. Therefore you need to go with the natural flow, and the ebbs and tides of your life. Only then you can find joy and wonder in the small things that give you pleasure as an adult, and that gave you pleasure as a child."
Although Sea Otters don't mate for life, the River Otters used in my lunar artwork this month do. Regardless of monogomy, all Otter couples and family members hold hands while they're sleeping so that they won't drift apart. Otters are also known to keep the same "pet rock" for their entire lifes, tucking it inside their armpit folds for safe keeping. They pariodically play with the rock, bouncing it from paw to paw across their chest. Although no one knows for sure why they do this, I like to think it's their way of kicking back and letting go with the flow. Otters are known for being playful, energetic creatures. They work hard but also make sure to take time out to play with their loved ones and favorite rock.
According to, WhatIsMySpiritAnimal.com
"The connection with living moving water gives Otter the meaning of an awareness of the subconscious, emotions and psychism. Observing Otter it becomes very apparent that these creatures see life as a true playground to be filled with family and friends. Very often Otter shows up in people’s lives when they’ve become too serious, over-think things and lose sight of their inner child. One of Otter’s mottos is: play as if no one is looking (and if possible have someone join you!). Otter is also a creature always up for a bit of adventure, letting curiosity direct them. They don’t worry about what’s left behind but rather look forward. This is a great lesson from Otter Spirit – you can’t embrace new things if you’re always clinging to what’s behind. This doesn’t mean that you just forget about difficulties, but rather find a way to smile and get a different perspective that may very well solve the whole shebang."
