Moon Cycle and Info
For years I have been following the Moon Cycles as a transformative practice, and I have also witnessed the positive impact on many people's lives as they access the cycle's energies. There is much wisdom in the cycles, and by observing them, and we can draw wisdom to learn about ourselves continuously. That's why I love offering moon ceremonies for you to participate from home with a wonderful global community.
July Full Moon
5/July - 12:44 AM EST / 5:44 AM BST
July's Full moon is called the Buck Moon, named by Native Americans after observing that at this time of the year a buck's antlers are in full growth mode. Also called Thunder Moon, this moon is in Capricorn, a sign associated with Earth element.
Sunday will present a penumbral lunar eclipse, something that will only happen eight to times this decade. A beautiful effect from when the moon moves through the faint, outer part of Earth's shadow. In other words, the sun, Earth, and moon are imperfectly aligned.
This is the third of a series of eclipses, and another portal of deep work and growth. We will have a chance to bring home, family, and intimate relationships into a sharper focus. Lunar qualities of emotions reach their peak at a lunar eclipse. Best to use this increased emotional strength and intuition to overcome any relationship challenges. Our expanded subconscious awareness allows for a better look at our close relationships - great to notice relationship dynamics or negative feelings causing disharmony. A lunar eclipse gives us the gift of clearing away our emotional baggage.

Queen of the Night
by Terry Webb Harshman
I am the moon, Queen of Night,
riddle wrapped in borrowed light,
a silver spool where dreams unwind,
ancient orb as old as time.
I masquerade; I wax and wane . . .
forever changing yet the same;
I stir the tides with unseen hands;
they ebb and flow from sea to sand.
Father Sun may keep the day;
I ride along the Milky Way . . .
holding court with owls and bats,
moles and voles and backstreet cats.
Within my tent the weary rest;
puppies doze and sparrows nest.
Children dream beneath my light . . .
I am the moon, Queen of Night.
