Buck Moon

The Full Buck Moon is a lunar phase that occurs in July or early August, depending on the year. It is also known by other names, such as the Thunder Moon, Hay Moon, and Wort Moon. The Full Buck Moon is named after the antlers of male deer, which are in full growth during this time of year.

About the Buck Moon

The Full Buck Moon represents a time of growth and abundance, as well as a time of inner reflection and self-awareness. It is a time to harness the energy of the moon to manifest your desires and to let go of anything that is holding you back.

In many traditions, the Full Buck Moon is associated with thunderstorms and lightning, as this is a time of year when these weather phenomena are more common. It is also associated with the element of fire, as the hot and dry weather of summer can increase the risk of wildfires.

In Native American cultures, the Full Buck Moon is seen as a time for hunting and gathering, as this is when many fruits and berries are ripe for picking. It is also a time to give thanks for the abundance of the earth and to honor the spirits of the animals that are hunted for food.


In terms of astrological properties, the Full Buck Moon is in the sign of Capricorn, which is associated with hard work, discipline, and ambition. This is a time to focus on your goals and to take practical steps towards achieving them.

To connect with the energy of the Full Buck Moon, you can:

  • Spend time in nature, especially in wooded areas or near bodies of water where deer are likely to be found.

  • Meditate or journal to reflect on your goals and desires, and to identify any limiting beliefs or fears that may be holding you back.

  • Create a vision board or manifestation ritual to bring your desires into reality.

  • Work with crystals such as garnet, ruby, or carnelian to amplify the energy of the Full Buck Moon.

  • Practice gratitude and give thanks for the abundance in your life.

Buck Moon Meditation 

Welcome to this guided meditation for the full Buck Moon

During this time, we celebrate the abundance of nature and the power of the deer, a symbol of grace, sensitivity, and intuition. This moon is also known as the Thunder Moon or Hay Moon, representing the heat and thunderstorms of summer. Take a moment to center yourself, breathe deeply, and prepare to connect with the energy of the Full Buck Moon.

  1. Begin by finding a comfortable seated position. Close your eyes and take a deep breath in, feeling your body relax with each exhale. Visualize a beam of white light coming down from the sky, surrounding you and filling you with its energy.

  2. Imagine yourself in a forest, surrounded by tall trees and the sounds of nature. As you walk deeper into the woods, you come across a clearing where a majestic buck stands before you. Take a moment to observe the deer, noticing its powerful presence and gentle demeanor.

  3. As you connect with the deer, feel its energy merge with yours. Sense the qualities of grace, intuition, and sensitivity that the deer embodies. These qualities are also within you, waiting to be awakened.

  4. Take a deep breath in and exhale, releasing any fears, doubts, or negativity that no longer serves you. As you do this, feel your intuition growing stronger and your sensitivity becoming more attuned to the world around you.

  5. Now, visualize yourself standing tall and strong like the buck, feeling empowered and connected to the earth. Affirm to yourself, "I am confident, powerful, and connected to my intuition. I trust in my abilities to navigate through life with grace and sensitivity."

  6. Positive affirmations:

  7. I trust my intuition and follow my inner guidance.

  8. I am confident in my abilities and trust in my strength.

  9. I am connected to the earth and all its abundance.

  10. I am grateful for the opportunities that the Full Buck Moon brings.

  11. I am open to receiving the blessings of the universe.

  12. Take another deep breath in, and exhale slowly. When you are ready, slowly open your eyes and return to the present moment, feeling energized and empowered by the Full Buck Moon's energy.

Carry these energy’s of the full moon with you throughout your day and beyond.
