July’s Full “Buck” Moon

Full Buck Moon for July 13, 2022

July 13 Full Blessing Moon 11:37 AM PST/ 12:37 PM MST/ 2:37 PM EST

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 month’s moon is sitting in Capricorn. The downside is that it’s sparring with Mercury. The upside is that it is receiving help from Uranus. The lessons of this grouping include listening to your inner voice and your intuition. We are being asked to think outside the box when looking for ways to settle arguments and solve issues and problems that pop up. Finding creative solutions will be in your best interest.

The Buck Moon is a good time for divination, dreamwork, and prosperity magick. The laid-back energy of this moon also works well for meditation, so kick back and enjoy the feeling of the things you have accomplished this far. Add 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 moonstone, pearls, opals, or a simple white agate.

Full Moon Blessings! ~Cat
