Buck Moon: Lunar Transits 2022

The Buck Moon is named due to the fact that Bucks who have shed their antlers begin growing their new set around July. This lunar cycle is channeling the energy of these majestic animals, as it begins in with a new moon in cancer, asking us to nurture our community, our herd, and care for the connections we have to the people around us,

The beginning of this lunar cycle is a focus on community and then swinging in the direction of balance, while the second half is about taking initiative on your personal path of growth. The overall theme is finding the proper balance, while recognizing that the meaning of balance is something that is fluid within your life.

Below are astrology readings for the four main phases of the moon, along with ideas for how to celebrate during ritual.

New Moon in Cancer

June 28, 2022

This new moon encourages you to nurture your emotional side and open up to receive the love of your community. This cycle will encourage embracing the emotional and empathetic connectivity you have with your tribe. If you are feeling sensitive during this time, honor your needs by nurturing yourself with your favorite self care tools. This may also be a time of heightened intuitive connection. Give yourself space to connect fully to your spiritual practice.

Ideas for Celebration:

  • Make new moon water, then pour it over your head while you bath to cleanse yourself spiritually.
  • Get in a spa day with your friends.
  • Burn lemon balm or bay leaves to clarify your space.
  • Have an honest emotional journal session.

First Quarter Moon in Libra

July 6, 2022

As you launch into action this cycle, ensure that you move in a way that is considerate to others while balancing your own needs and desires. Be a diplomat in your own world. No human being is truly an individualist, we all have networks of people around us that support us and help us find the path forward.

Ideas for Celebration:

  • Attend a group meditation or yoga session.
  • Air out your feelings.

Full Moon in Capricorn

July 13, 2022

After the loving, divine motherly energy of the new moon, the full moon in Capricorn invites you to kick it into full gear. Capricorn understands that in order to build a house, you must lay one brick at a time. Honoring our emotions is necessary, but spending too much time there can lead to complacency or even fearfulness. Buckle up, release the emotions, make a plan, and be persistent in your execution.

Ideas for Celebration:

  • Hand over your pent up energy to the earth: put your hands in the grass and breath
  • Charge your productivity crystals.
  • Go look at some plants and trees in nature.

Third Quarter Moon in Aries

July 20, 2022

As this cycle comes to a close, the moon in Aries may bring a surge of optimism about the results of this moon cycle, and if not optimistic, pumped up to get up and try again. Don’t forget to give yourself a moment to reflect on the effectiveness of your thoughts and actions towards your intentions this cycle, and stay enthusiastic about the unknown opportunities coming up for you.

Ideas for Celebration:

  • Burn a candle
  • Go for a walk in the neighborhood
  • Play with some friends (whatever that means to you)

This is the beginning of my lunar abundance series. In this series, I will post biweekly updates of the moon and her transits to be utilized alongside lunar abundance or other personal forms of growth. Let's work with the energy of the moon, not against it!
