August - The Corn Moon
 
August is the time for harvesting, gathering, and appreciating. Start collecting, drying and storing your herbs! To honor your Divine, bake breads to give thanks to the growth of grain and herbs. The energy flow is slowing more and now is the time of vitality, health, and friendships.
