While summer is here and the sun is heating earth more than even (at some places!) July is giving us another reason to look up in the sky.
Fireworks come and go. They are cool too! But this time we have something different to look up for: it’s the biggest and brightest supermoon of the year!
Known as the Buck Moon, July’s full moon is set to rise on Wednesday, July 13. This amazing celestial spectacle is going to be lit because the natural satellite is expected to reach its nearest point to Earth.
It’s not labeled “supermoon” on a whim! They get the “super” rank because the moon appears particularly large in the sky owing to the coincidence of its closest approach to the earth (the perigee) with a full (or new) moon.
The moon will orbit closest to Earth compared to any other full moon this year, according to the Farmer’s Almanac. The best part? No binoculars or telescopes are needed to witness this celestial phenomenon!
The full Moon in July is called the Buck Moon because the antlers of male deer (bucks) are in full-growth mode at this time. Bucks shed and regrow their antlers each year, producing a larger and more impressive set as the years go by.
Here’s what you need to know to prepare for the energy shift.
How will the Full Buck Moon in Capricorn impact your life?
The Full Buck Supermoon will push you on a quest to resolve the hectic mess and responsibilities in your life and throw in there a little bit fun. This includes the work-life balance, but also it will give you energy to deal with the ongoing stress and obligations.
It will give you time to think on what you really need to focus on at the moment (work, cleaning, mowing the lawn) and add more fun side to be able to cope with those things better (yeah, we know sometimes they can be REALLY boring).
Pluto, the planet of intensity, is tied to this new moon, getting you all kinds of fired up to make your goals happen. This doesn’t mean ruling the world, Jeff Bezos style, no. It can mean having time to go to that yoga class, getting things done on time instead of racing with deadlines. Oh, and this also means squeezing a successful cocktail with your buddies!
On the love front, you’ll find yourself daydreaming of a perfect partner if you still haven’t found it. If you’re already coupled up, how close can you get to making great memories together? Take some time to just let your mind wander and dare to explore new things with your partner. It could end up being good for you and your relationship.
The full moon will impact all the zodiac signs.
This is just my personal observation: if you’re having trouble sleeping tonight don’t blame it on the kids or the stress. It’s just the full moon doing its thing. For some people some full moons are great time to rest and sleep but for others it’s “bizarre” sleep time.
So get ready for this one, because it’s one of a kind this year! Soak the energy in and use it in your advantage.
