Full Supermoon tonight!


Tonight is the third Supermoon of 2013!  A supermoon is defined as: 

… a new or full moon which occurs with the moon at or near (within 90% of) its closest approach to Earth in a given orbit.

This months moon is known as the deer moon or buck moon, or also as the thunder moon.  It is called the deer or buck moon because this is the time of year when bucks start to grow new antlers.  It is also called the thunder moon because July is the month with the most thunderstorms of the year.  

I am hoping to get a decent view of lady luna tonight, even though our skies here have been pretty cloudy over the last few days.  As I do every full moon, I made an moon altar to honor luna.   I also like to charge/cleanse the full moons energy into a few items that are most precious to me.  


My favorite ring and necklaces, a few of my favorite stones, crystals, and shells.  Also a new bracelet that a friend made for me.   I sprinkled it with some mums and herbal offerings to bring some feminine energy and healing my way.  It also has my favorite hand painted stone that came with my Red Tent Ritual Kit.  

Do you use the full moon to charge or cleanse stones or items that are precious to you?

Happy full moon to you!

  1. Yes! This reminds me to cleanse my own items tonight. The moon was really full last night, so I can't wait to see Her showcase tonight! (Also, I'm enamoured with the term thunder moon!)

  3. SO lovely. I am struggling a bit with my moods, and while doing good - I map out that I know I want to get more into my Witchy lifestyle... I can say "I am an artist" and never draw, so saying so won't make 'tis true. The same can be said about saying "I am a Witch" but not living the lifestyle. I know it's mostly the bipolar and OCD messing up my goals, so that knowledge does help!

    1. Thank you Angie. I know what you mean, I have always been drawn towards a "witchy" lifestyle, but only over the past couple years have I really started to fully embrace it and I know it is the path for me. I just started with small things and have been incorporating more and more with each new thing I learn. Sending love to you. xo

  4. I was so excited there was a supermoon on my birthday but it was cloudy and rainy here so I couldn't see it. That's okay though, the energy was still strong :)

  5. I woke up to thunder and lightening and the first thing I thought about were my crystals, so I gathered them up and put them out under the moon and T&L. Fully charged and ready to go. x
