FULL THUNDER MOON

First of two July thunder moons visible tonight

Full Moon in Capricorn peaks on Wednesday, July 1 at 7:20 P.M. PDT/10:20 EDT.

The Sun in Cancer and the Moon in opposition in Capricorn highlights the balance between being accountable to our inner truths and needs, and meeting our public and community obligations.

The Cancer Sun represents our domestic life, our need for creating and feeling at home, and our need for security, safety, and nourishment. The Capricorn Moon symbolizes our journey to take our place in the line of ancestors, our place in our family lineage, and our place as part of the human circle of life.

According to the Farmer’s Almanac, July’s first moon is also called the buck moon, because this is the time of year when bucks begin to grow their antlers.

Full Moon Names and Their Meanings

Full Moon names date back to Native Americans, of what is now the northern and eastern United States. The tribes kept track of the seasons by giving distinctive names to each recurring full Moon. Their names were applied to the entire month in which each occurred. There was some variation in the Moon names, but in general, the same ones were current throughout the Algonquin tribes from New England to Lake Superior. European settlers followed that custom and created some of their own names. Since the lunar month is only 29 days long on the average, the full Moon dates shift from year to year. Here is the Farmers Almanac’s list of the full Moon names.

The Full Buck Moon

July is normally the month when the new antlers of buck deer push out of their foreheads in coatings of velvety fur. It was also often called the Full Thunder Moon, for the reason that thunderstorms are most frequent during this time.

Another name for this month’s Moon was the Full Hay Moon.

Full Cold Moon …. December 6, 2014!!


~~December 6, 2014~~

The Full Cold Moon; or the Full Long Nights Moon – December

During this month the winter cold fastens its grip, and nights are at their longest and darkest. It is also sometimes called the Moon before Yule. The term Long Night Moon is a doubly appropriate name because the midwinter night is indeed long, and because the Moon is above the horizon for a long time. The midwinter full Moon has a high trajectory across the sky because it is opposite a low Sun.

Tonight, watch for the full moon, which we in the Northern Hemisphere call the Long Night Moon, Cold Moon or Moon before Yule. Watch as the full moon shines all night long, starting at sunset on December 5, 2014. The full moon, our nocturnal sun, stays out throughout the night, and then sleeps in during the day.

The full moon shines in front of the constellation Taurus the Bull, not far from the constellation’s brightest star, Aldebaran. However, this star may be hard to see in the full moon’s glare. Six months from now – in June – it’ll be the sun that shines in front of Taurus the Bull, and which obscures our view of the star Aldebaran.

The December full moon, like the June sun, climbs up high as seen from the Northern Hemisphere sky. That’s another reason for the name Long Night Moon. The full moon nearest the winter solstice travels a high path across the sky and so stays in the sky a long time.

From the Southern Hemisphere, where the days are long and the nights are short, perhaps we could call the December full moon the Short Night Moon. After all, it’s the hot season in that hemisphere now, and nights are short. From the Southern Hemisphere, the December full moon hangs low, mimicking that hemisphere’s June sun.

From either hemisphere, tonight’s full moon rises in the east around sunset, climbs highest for the night around midnight and sets in the west around sunrise.

Wherever you may live worldwide, watch for tonight’s moon to light up the nighttime from dusk until dawn.
