July 3, 2023 marks the full moon. It’s known as the Buck Moon.

This moon is also a super moon, which means that it’s much closer to earth than normal. So if you feel its influence more than normal, it’s not just you!

This is around the time of year when bucks start to sprout new antlers, signaling a powerful and fertile period of transformation and growth.

The summer full moons are particularly potent times for both cleansing and manifesting, depending on your intention, and how you work.

The Earth is bursting with green life force, the harvests are coming. Traditionally, it’s a time of great abundance.

Full Buck Moon Meditation

Close your eyes. Focus on your breathing until your heart rate steadies and slows.

Ask yourself:

What do I want to accomplish in the months to come?

Imagine the end result. Don’t focus on the path that will get you there. Just envision your success clearly.

What does it look like? Feel like? Smell like?

Simply see yourself in your mind’s eye accomplishing your goal, whatever it may be.

Then, ask yourself:

What am I holding on to that no longer serves me, and is keeping me from achieving what I wish?

These can be beliefs, circumstances, social obligations, relationships, physical things or spaces, etc.

Gently bless whatever arises — and release it.

How do you do that?

You could say something like, “I bless this [thing/person/circumstance], and release it with love, that its cords no longer limit or bind me. As I do this, I create room for blessings and good fortune.”

Sit quietly and pay attention to what comes up for you — but don’t hold on to it.

When you’re ready, jot down any impressions or thoughts you have, to help inform you as you work towards your goals.
