July Full Buck and Thunder Moon July 27, 2018

Look for the summer skies to light up with the Full Moon in Aquarius July 27, 2018. It is also a total lunar eclipse.  This July 2018 lunar eclipse is a rare central lunar eclipse, where part of the Moon passes through the center of the Earth’s shadow. It is also the longest total lunar eclipse this century, lasting 1 hour and 23 minutes. 

Being as this is a powerful total lunar eclipse it is also called a blood moon because of the reddish color caused by light being refracted by Earth’s atmosphere.  With three major events all in one day think of the power that is coming through for you and use it for your best and highest good.

The full moon in July represents what many natives call “Thunder Moon”, since July is a time when rains and downpours appear allowing Mother Nature to give her wrath to people who mistreat her. At the same time, being so merciful, she would provide support and fostering to drought and feeding her playground through surges of water.

Since July is normally the month when the new antlers of buck deer push out of their foreheads in coatings of velvety fur, the full moon of this moon is called the full Buck Moon. Another name for this month’s Moon was the Full Hay Moon.

This Full Moon is about balancing our commitment to our career and families. Something has been building inside of us, and now is the time when the energy of the cosmos fairly demands that we let it out. Over the next two weeks, we will discover what this means for us. For now, we can’t sit on our feelings. We need to express them.

The Full Moon illuminates this conflict between roots and direction. With the Moon full symbolic “illumination” occurs in our own lives. However, these new feelings and revelations are emotional ones, as there is a sense of emotions bursting forth into our consciousness. It’s time to express ourselves, and to let things out of our systems.

Take time to pray and visualize what you want during this full moon.

This is a good time to cleanse and charge your crystals under the Sun during the day and the Moon by night.

This will be a perfect night to do a Burning Bowl Ceremony.  Release what you no longer need and allow the new into your life.

Full Moon Ritual

Our ancestors used spiritual baths or sweat lodges during the full moon.  Water is a medium that can transfer energy.  I find that using 1/2lb. of Epsom salts in the water helps to cleanse the spiritual body.  During a spiritual bath you need to slow down, take a deep breath, feel the water around you, let it wash and cleanse every part of you.  Let it carry the hurts, aches, negativity, grief, rejection etc down the drain.  Feel its strength and purity.  Feel the water surround you, comfort you.  Let it rebirth you.

It is beneficial to have an in depth spiritual reading every moon cycle. Since every moon cycle represents a change, it not only affects our external forces but our internal forces as well. If you would like to get a reading with me CLICK HERE!
