July 19th Full Moon: 5 Ways to let the Full Moon Inspire Us.

Young Buck.

*Eleditor’s note: Astrology isn’t a religion. We’re not sure it’s a science, either. It’s magic, maybe. But, as with feng shui, say, things affect things. So as long as we don’t go blaming our problems on the stars, as long as we assume responsibility for our own actions…well, hell, a little auspicious coincidence and applicable wisdom can’t hurt. And so, with that grain of salt…enjoy!


We have a special Full Moon occurring on July 19, 2016, 6:56 pm ET.

It’s called a Full Buck Moon, and if the skies are clear in your part of the world, you’ll be able to see it.

It’s named the Buck Full Moon because it is the Full Moon rising and setting at the time of the year when male deer, known as bucks, typically begin to grow their new antlers, starting with velvety bumps on their foreheads. Just think of Bambi finally growing up.

It’s also a time when we humans can grow and accomplish our goals and dreams.

Many of us may be asking: what’s so unique about the Full Moon?

Full Moon is a time of super charged energy with the sun and moon in opposite signs of the Zodiac. This creates a “yin and yang” of solar and lunar harmony. During the previous New Moon we may have conceived ideas or become vaguely aware of our desires. In fact, we may have had miraculous epiphanies about all of the things we wanted to accomplish. The Full Moon is an exuberant time of new possibilities when we must trust our intuition and recognize a perfect opportunity to go for it.

Here are 5 Great Things to do During this Full Moon:

1.xTake Action on Our Plans. If we’ve been making any important plans, the Full Moon is a time when we can turn our dreams into tangible reality. We now have an opportunity to make a fresh start, whether it’s taking a class for self-improvement or telling a loved one that we’re ready for a commitment. We may decide to finally buy the dream house we’ve contemplated buying for a long time. Some of us realize that being of service to others and volunteering is what we need to do to make our hearts whole. This is the time to commit to finally doing it.

2.xTry Something that Failed—Again. We all try things and experience failure. A negative experience can discourage us from ever trying something again. A single person may say, “I tried meeting someone on an Internet dating site and it never worked out.” This Full Moon is a perfect opportunity to give it another chance. Another person says, “I went to the opera and didn’t enjoy it.” If that person tries the opera again, they may have a whole new positive experience.

3.xSet a New Goal. Often we commit to goals and fall short of reaching it. The Full Moon is the perfect time to adjust our goals and try a new approaches  to reaching them. If our goal is to play tennis but we feel uncoordinated, now we have the motivation. If we say, “I am a lousy cook,” we may recognize that we can seek help from someone who is a great cook. If we are not an involved parent  and want to be more involved with our kids, we can find a special activity to enjoy with our children, and commit to doing it with them once a week.

4.xLook for a Climax. Sometimes our lives feel like actors in a television series and we go through are daily lives with each day being a new episode. Eventually, the plot points are pulled together and we can see what it all means. We see the culmination of what we’ve imagined and worked toward for a long time. If we’ve pursued our goals and dreams, during the Full Moon, we can see our destiny more clearly.

5.Celebrate with Friends. This Full Moon is an ideal time to socialize, be with friends or even throw a party. We feel exuberant to be with people we love. It’s a time when we are especially inclined to share our joy and good fortune with others. We may establish more meaningful relationships with the people we connect with during this time. Keep in mind that because of the moon’s energy, it can be a time of intense emotions when we may finally get in touch with what we feel. This can be especially good if we’ve been spending too much time in our heads.

The Full Moon offers us a special opportunity to make plans and to finally act on the ones we do have. We can move closer to fulfilling our dreams, whatever they are. It’s a time when we can share the joy of our life and our good fortune with others as we each go on our individual journeys.
