The evening of July 23rd at 7:36pm Pacific Time and 10:36pm Eastern we'll be feeling the peak of the Full Moon. Also referred to as the Buck Moon, for the growing antlers that annually grow to grace male deer in July, this moon is in Aquarius - and, fun fact - our next Full Moon on August 22nd will also be in Aquarius!
The July Full Moon is all about abundance and passionate growth. This time of year has us experiencing much more light than dark in the Northern Hemisphere. These watery, emotional energies of the Full Moon come amongst warm-to-hot days often filled with extra events and activities as we may lean toward filling this extended light.
Let this summery motivation drive you forward in focus and momentum now. Tune into the Aquarian vibes of collaborative creation, while highlighting individuality, and feel into where you can nourish and give toward community progress. With passion and leadership strong traits behind the July Full Moon this is a great time to really soar by using your imagination to dream big and act over the next two weeks. What is asking for attention, or asking to be completed in your life?
For these Moon Energies I sat in ceremony and asked for guidance with a three-card draw. Sharing Reiki with the collective and all those open to receive, I requested the cards be infused, and to share this energy, helping us on these paths of action. Before reading on you may wish to think of a question you'd like to ask, or a topic on which you're looking for assistance.
