Full moon lunar eclipse


Tonight we will have a full moon.
Native Americans kept track of the seasons by giving distinctive names to the recurring full Moons
This month has several names
Full Buck Moon, Because bucks begin to grow new antlers at this time.
Thunder Moon, because thunderstorms are so frequent during this month.
Hay Moon, for the July hay harvest.
Corn moon, a Cherokee name.

Things to do.
It is best not to plant today but to control weeds.
Do something to help heal the earth.
Light a white candle today for peace and healing of the earth.
Make a commitment to live a greener life.
Prepare your soil or containers for the fall garden.
As it it time for roots to do be planted the next couple days.
Get ready to start your new seeds.
Enjoy life today. Celebrate the wonderful world we live in.

A penumbral lunar eclipse will take place today on July 7, 2009, the second of four lunar eclipses in 2009. This eclipse will only enter the southern most tip of the penumbral shadow and thus will be very difficult to observe visually. Read moor about it at wickpedia.
A lunar eclipse is an eclipse which occurs whenever the moon passes behind the earth such that the earth blocks the sun's rays from striking the moon.

On this Full Moon, the Sun is in watery Cancer opposing the Moon in the feminine earth sign of Capricorn, drawing attention to the need to balance what nurtures us .

As I read this, thunder is raging outside my window. I love a summer storm. The electricity is awesome.
