In the quiet of the deep velvet night, I love to sit at my bedroom window.... long after everyone else has gone to sleep.....and tilt my face upwards to the full moon. It calls to me, wrenching the demons from my soul. The silvery white light kisses & caresses my face, calming the swirling tempest within. What peace. What love. What a sense of oneness with the Highest One.
According to the Farmer's Almanac, tonight's moon is called the Full Buck Moon. July is normally the month when the new velvety antlers of buck deer thrust forth from their foreheads. I can only imagine the itchiness & torment this creates. It would be enough to cause anyone to wildly dash out in front of passing cars.
Another name for this month's Moon was the Full Hay Moon. Even in today's world, you can see farmers scrambling to bale hay.....trying to outrun the rain.....trying to put aside plenty against the coming paucity of winter's none.
My favorite name for July's full moon, though, is the Full Thunder Moon......so bestowed for the frequent violent thunderstorms which occur this time of year. Watching nature rage during a snapping, booming thunderstorm is just as soul satisfying as gazing at that full platinum orb dangling in our black velvet sky.
Wishing peace, love and oneness with the Highest One for you. Blessings.
