Full Buck Moon: Jul 22, 1:16 P.M. (CST) is at 0º Aquarius 06′
July is normally the month when the new antlers of buck deer push out of their foreheads in coatings of velvety fur. It was also often called the Full Thunder Moon, for the reason that thunderstorms are most frequent during this time. Other names for this month’s Moon is the Full Hay Moon, in India, the July full moon is known as Guru Purnima and the Buddhist Sinhala call it Esala Poya. In China, it is the Hungry Ghost Moon. The Celts called it the Claiming Moon, some Neo Pagans call it the Rose Moon, and Wiccans the Mead moon.
On the Cusp
This FullMoon is on the cusp of Aquarius. This means that the Moon has just moved into Aquarius, from Capricorn. Also, the Sun has just entered Leo, so the energy right now is very crisp & new. Mercury has finally gone direct (after being retrograde for several weeks), and the Sun & Moon are both settling into new signs. So be ready for a refreshing change of pace.
From the Fringe
The Full Moon pulls the energy of Leo through Aquarius, to bring us a bright ray of social consciousness. We will notice more acceptance of the non-traditional, and even feel drawn to it. Those who may be considered on the fringe of society may attract the attention they need by acting out. So if that’s you, try not to go overboard. Anything you can do to feel more secure & calm will help interactions go more smoothly. Alienating others can be kinda fun, but it doesn’t really benefit in the long run.
If you’re the recipient of outre behavior, try to be patient & accepting. There may be a healing process in progress.
All of us should make a point of enjoying the ride. This is a fantastic time to explore different cultures & traditions, and partake of all the flavors of life that the world has to offer. Celebrate diversity!
Walk in Beauty
Our Leo Sun is also semisexile Venus in Virgo. Semisextile is generally considered to be a “minor” aspect, but the orb is very tight at this point, giving it a much stronger influence. This combination is all about taste, style, diplomacy, and charm. It should help us to express our own uniqueness in a manner that others can actually appreciate. It should also add to our ability to enjoy the beauty of each other’s differences.
This is a fantastic time for any FengShui or organizational/placement changes you may have been thinking about. Beauty through organization… its all about the presentation.
