Full Moon Ritual & Practice: Buck Moon
July’s full moon is called the Buck Moon because a buck’s antlers are full grown at this time of year. It is also referred to as a Thunder Moon because thunderstorms are so frequent during this month. This moon ritual will call upon these symbols’ severing ability with candle and cord cutting magick. Come prepared to let go.
We open by casting the circle, followed by a meditation on our desired outcome, ritual, and gentle yet expressive movement.
