WITCHFUL THINKING

JULY

Oh July……Sweet month of sun and flowers, the “Wednesday hump” of summer. In July, life is easy. The power of the Sun God is at its peak and all is growing and flourishing, bursting from the earth as a gift of Beltane’s fertility and heading inevitably toward the Mabon harvests as the Wheel makes its inexorable turns. In July, the flowers smell sweetest and the trees are the greenest as burgeoning life fuels our creativity and gifts us with long rapturous days, wild for the taking.

July is a wonderful time to care for your local faery folk. Create a small shrine for them in your yard or garden. Leave out a saucer with a bit of honey and butter—they will appreciate it and may bless you with wisdom ad joy. Keep some rue in your pocket to avoid being led astray by the faeries in one of their wilder moments!

You might also craft a protective Summer herbal amulet. gather either three or nine of the following herbs before sunrise: chamomile, clover, comfrey, ivy, lavender, mugwort, nettle plantain, rose, rue, St. John’s wort, sweet woodruff, thyme, wort, vervain and yarrow. Dry the herbs in a cool, dark place for a few days, then crumble and use to fill a small pouch. Carry, wear, or keep your Summer amulet nearby for blessings and protection.

July’s astrological signs is Cancer, the crab (June 22 – July 22), a cardinal water sign ruled by the Moon. In July, we celebrate Independence Day, July 4, it is the major holiday of high summer. Not only can we celebrate our nation’s independence, we can also give thanks for July’s abundance, which will sustain us during the coming months. We are blessed with richness in July perhaps the reason the old ones referred to July’s Full Moon as the Blessing Moon. Magic during this Moon may include all forms of prosperity charms. When you cast a spell now. you will feel the vitality of the earth.

Crafting Your Magic:
Balance ego with perseverance and organization in your spell work at this time.  Manifest the power of leadership and banish indecisiveness.  Now is when you will find empowerment from the strength of your emotions combined with a strong will and Leo’s natural energy that leads to a desire for dominance.

Cast spells for long-term goals that will come to fruition at the Winter Solstice, manifesting with the return of the Sun.  Green witchcraft is highlighted with the Herb Moon.  Revel in this magic.  Tend to your herb gardens and flower pots with tender loving care.  Pluck and snip and dry, hanging bundles from the kitchen ceiling and stashing away in bottles and jars the ingredients for future spells and magical workings.  The witch gathers to her now the botanicals that she will use during the course of the coming months and the inevitable winter.

July's Moon ~ Buck Moon

To signify the new antlers that emerge on deer buck's foreheads around this time.

This Full Moon is also known as Thunder Moon, Wort Moon, and Hay Moon from Old English/Anglo-Saxon.

This is a great time to do divination and dreamwork. For a bit of moon magic divination, consider doing some full moon water scrying.

If you’ve ever thought about creating a dream journal, this month is a good time to start one.
