July 16 – Full Moon – Thunder Moon – Hay Moon – Full Buck Moon

July 16th, 2019 is the night of the Full Moon, Thunder Moon, Hay Moon and Full Buck Moon. Does a Full Moon affect us? Everything has a cycle and reacts according to the way the Universe is laid out. The planets in our Solar System affect us on emotional levels.  This includes the Moon. Because the law of attraction is thought to be at its most powerful during a Full Moon, those who use it wisely can create myriad opportunities for themselves.

July 16, 2019 – “Thunder Moon”  and “Hay Moon”

The name “Thunder Moon,” according the Old Farmer’s Almanac, was adapted from the native people, in what is now the United States, where summer is thunderstorm season, especially in the Northeast and Midwest.

Because thunderstorms are such a defining characteristic of this month, according to Farmer’s Almanac, the Full Moon remains truthful to its name.

July’s Full Moon, known as the “Thunder Moon,” thanks to all the storms that roll through, or as the Sturgeon Moon on the Great Lakes when those fish are easiest to catch, are not the only names for this Moon. Other tribes and early colonists referred to the Full Moon in July as the “Hay Moon.” The “Hay Moon” was a signal to farmers to start storing their hay for winter.

Observing the Moon, sitting comfortably, or lying down on a patch of grass and letting the Full Moon’s light fill our eyes, makes it easy to be reminded of how ancient and everlasting all the celestial bodies are. Watch how it puts your life into perspective. The annoyances, the anxieties and worries from our day fade away as we realize that in life there are bigger things at play, and it is okay to simply open up and exist in the here and now.

July 16, 2019 – “Full Buck Moon”

For many years, natives have called July’s Full Moon the “Full Buck Moon.” This name comes from our Native American and Colonial past when the Moon was used to track the seasons. Bucks are growing new antlers at this time, as deer start to shed the coatings of velvety fur on their antlers, thus the name “Full Buck Moon.”


There are lots of animals that can lose and regrow body parts like this, but deer are the only mammals with this trick. And deer do it really well — antlers have one of the fastest regrowing times out of all of these body parts. Today, scientists are interested in learning more about how the process works in hopes of applying those techniques to human medicine in the future.

July 16, 2019 – Full Moon brings Interesting Encounters

This Full Moon is going to bring about interesting encounters in your personal life, as well as fun and stimulating events. The Full Moon of July often casts an exuberant vibe, making it a great time to have a party. This also opens the door for meaningful people to step into your life. But there is a dark side to this Moon.

The Moon is a planet of the subconscious, and like the tides, it has a sweeping effect on our emotional life. Dealing with the kinds of feelings a Full Moon brings up can be difficult to do alone, so whether you are single or attached, you might want to reach out and connect with someone close to you just to feel less alone. This could also be a great time to plan outings with friends and re-establish connections that might have been put aside over time.

July 16, 2019 – Hot Energy from this Full Moon

Some astrologists believe this July Full Moon can be a dangerous one. According to Astrology King, the position of the Moon directly opposite of the Sun and Mars “creates such intensely hot energy that it will be difficult to control.”

They also warn that if this energy gets out of control, you might experience “serious relationship problems.” This energy may be difficult to control, but with a positive attitude, you can stay composed.

Incoming and outgoing energies must match. You can’t expect to receive great energy if the one you give off is terrible. Act on principle: Even if someone has done something wrong to you, don’t retaliate. Let karma address it.

July 16, 2019 – Stay Calm

The Full Moon is the time to stay calm, let things go, breathe deeply through difficult moments and forgive others for their mistakes. Since you have the full moon power behind you, send healing energy, forgiveness, pink light and loving-kindness to friends, family, colleagues, and strangers.


Make a point to send peaceful energy to the places in the world experiencing strife, hardship, poverty and war. It has huge benefits for them and as a bonus, you create loads of good Karma.

Even without directing your intention, you can help other people around you feel better; and “around you” means the entire planet! Anytime you raise your energetic frequency, you automatically raise the frequency of people you think about.

Great Affirmations for a Full Moon:

I am whole, complete. I maintain balance in myself and my life. I allow and encourage new growth in my life. I let go of attachments that hold me back. I move forward with the intention to heal. I engage with only those who are good for me.

I let go of all which no longer serves me. I allow and encourage new opportunities in my life. I am in alignment with my truest and highest self. I am whole, complete!

Spread the love
