How the July Super Buck Moon can help us get motivated again…


On the 13th July 2022 at 7.38pm the biggest and brightest Super Buck Moon of 2022 graced the skies in the practical and grounded earth sign of Capricorn. If you feel things have been a little chaotic recently – you will be pleased to hear that it’s coming to restore structure, discipline, and order! I certainly am!

Full moons are monthly events that shed light on specific areas for us, intensifying the normal ebbs and flows of our typical moods. The upcoming Super Buck Moon is no exception! This moon is here to shine a light on any areas where we need to get back on track, establish a routine or take some positive action steps… You know what I’m talking about!

The July 2022 Super Buck Moon is all about realigning with our long-term goals by embracing discipline and action. What springs to mind? Can you think of any areas in your life which have felt a little heavy or stagnant recently or you have just lost your momentum? Maybe now is the time to let go of anything that no longer serves you, set yourself some practical and healthy routines and get back on track again?

The name Buck Moon comes from the male deer who shed their old antlers around this time in order for healthier, stronger ones to grow in their place. It’s a wonderful metaphor for us to remember that sometimes we need to shed our old patterns and behaviours too before we can replace them with healthier and stronger alternatives.

Since the moon is the luminary that governs over our physical bodies, you may notice that you’re feeling a bit more drained than usual at this time, so be sure to get plenty of rest and drink plenty of water. While you may be inspired to immediately roll up your sleeves and get to work, full moons are a time for rest and reflection too.

Embrace the clarity that comes along with this lunation, and try not to be too hard on yourself now. Break down any big jobs and tackle them step by step. You don’t have to complete everything straight away but it’s good to get back on track and clear any old inertia that’s been hanging around. If you have any old projects, hobbies or jobs that you put on the backburner now might be a good time to revisit them.

The July 2022 supermoon is the third of the year, and full moons occur every 29.5 days when the moon has completed its lunar phase cycle fully.
