In this month of August we will be under the influence of TWO full moons! The second, due on the 31st is a Blue Moon…
“Seven times in 19 years there were — and still are — 13 full moons in a year. This gives 11 months with one full moon each and one with two. This second in a month, so I interpret it, was called Blue Moon.”

Apparently the next double moon month is not until 2018..
Meanwhile between August 5th and September 2nd, the Hazel Tree is the Celtic tree of association.. Wisdom and Learning..
” This is the best time of year to focus on gaining wisdom and absorbing knowledge. Cast spells to heighten your senses and concentration.

A myth tells how nine nuts of wisdom fell from the hazel tree into a river where a magical salmon ate them. The salmon then became a prized catch, gifted with shape-shifting powers and infinite wisdom.
