Thunder Moon – July’s Full Moon Could Seriously Shake Up Your Love Life

This Month’s Full Moon

thunder moon - full moon over waterThe Thunder Moon, arriving on July 16th, was named so by Native Americans after the typical July thunder and lightening storms. This full moon is expected to be super powerful, causing potential changes with no going back and it’s the perfect time for letting go. 

The Buck Moon

Also called the Buck Moon, Native Americans from long ago chose this other name based on how male deer shed their antlers and start to grow a new set every year in July. Notice how this is a strong image suggesting a time for change and growth.

The Perfect Time For Change

If you are looking for change and longing to move on to something new, the Thunder Moon is perfect for manifesting that. As a single woman, this could be just what you need to get moving in the direction of finding love again.

And, if you’re in a relationship, this could be a time when old patterns are dropped, allowing healthier ways to begin. In general, the full moon is an ideal time for clearing out negative or unwanted patterns and energies, so you can start fresh.

It’s A Good Sign!

Some think of this as a time for cleansing. Should old wounds surface or past emotions flare up, that means they are ready to be cleared. Take this as a good sign that healing is possible and occurring. It could be the very change you want!

When the moon is full, the sun is directly opposite in the sky, brightly illuminating this heavenly body. Lighting up the night sky, the time of the full moon has been known to figuratively reveal something about yourself or others that was previously unseen. Certainly true for the Thunder Moon too.


How Does This Impact Your Love Life?

You could discover new information about a love interest from your past or present that sheds light on a puzzling situation. With the Thunder Moon, things get shaken up and greater clarity becomes possible. You’ll be able to let go of what no longer serves you, freeing you up to love again!

For example, if you’ve felt deeply hurt by an ex or confused by a man’s behavior, a new level of understanding could allow you to let go and move on. That’s how your heart will be healed.

Partial Lunar Eclipse

The July Thunder Moon also comes with a partial lunar eclipse, the last one for 2019. In the US, it won’t be visible, but that doesn’t mean you won’t feel it’s affects. While the Sun is in Cancer with a focus on the feminine, you may feel an urge to take a break or pull back.

Your softer side may seek comfort and greater self-care. Plus, your “Spidey senses” might be activated, as you feel undercurrents, use your intuition or pick up on non-verbal communication.


On the other hand, the Thunder Moon is in Capricorn which is all about business, work, organizations, government and dealing with the real world. This is a time for taking responsibility for yourself, which dovetails nicely with Cancer’s desire for greater self-care.

Ready To Speak Up

In addition, the full moon is often a time for feeling more empowered and wanting to speak your truth. Just be careful not to burn any bridges during the Thunder Moon. How you share your truth can change everything and leave a permanent mark. Think through what you plan to say before you just blurt something out that you could regret.

Stay Grounded

One thing sure to help is remaining grounded. Here are two simple and easy exercises to try.

1. Deep Breathing

Sit in a comfortable, safe place. Close your eyes, then breathe slowly and deeply through your nose. Be conscious of filling up your lungs. Next, slowly exhale through your mouth. Repeat this cycle five times and your energy will be enlivened, expanded and grounded, ready to make sound decisions.

2. Grounding Visualization

Again sit comfortably in a safe place and close your eyes. Do a bit of deep breathing to relax. Then imagine a tree root that grows downward from the base of your spine moving towards the earth.

The root moves downward through whatever you’re sitting on, the floor, the basement and pushes into the earth’s crust. Continue to see this root reach down deep into the earth hundreds of feet or more.

You are now firmly connected to the earth and can allow earth energy to travel back up into your body for healing and growth. The affect? You’ll feel safer, more grounded and ready to take action with wisdom.

Both of these exercises will help you stay balanced during the Thunder Moon and avoid absorbing other people’s turbulent emotions.

The Thunder Moon Pulls at Emotions

In the same way the full moon’s gravitational pull causes higher and lower ocean tides than normal, it also impacts the human emotional state and how you relate to others. That’s why maintaining balance is so essential at this time of the Buck Moon and extra self-care is incredibly helpful.

Enjoy the Thunder Moon for all the change it brings and light it shines upon you, your love and your life.
