Full Buck Moon
Date& Time: July 4/5 at 9:44 pm PST/ 10:44 pm MST / 12:44 EST July 5
The Farmer’s Almanac calls this moon the Buck Moon because this is the time when bucks grow new antlers. Other names for this full moon are Thunder Moon, Summer Moon (colonial ), Hungry Ghost Moon (china), Ripe Corn Moon (Cherokee), Crane Moon (Choctaw), Moon of Claiming (Celtic), Mead Moon (Medieval English), Rose Moon, Blessing Moon (pagan).
This Full Moon is in Capricorn and we will also have a lunar eclipse to add to the mix. Use the energy to rid yourself of toxic people and situations. It can also help us to find a balance between our lives and work by generating answers and ideas. The Buck Moon is a good time for divination, teamwork, and prosperity magick.
You can a little something extra to your magickal workings by using July’s herbs hyssop, lemon balm, mugwort, catnip, or leaves from ash or oak trees. You can also celebrate this month’s moon by wearing the colors blue-gray, silver or green, and adorning yourself with carnelian, citrine, moonstone, pearls, opals, or a simple white agate.
