On July 12, 2014, there is the first full moon after the June 21 solstice. Around this time of year, in North America, buck deer start growing antlers, thunder storms rage and farmers struggle to pile up hay in their barns which is why we call this full moon the Buck Moon, Thunder Moon or Hay Moon. The July 2014 full moon is also the first of three full-moon supermoons in 2014. The full moons on July 12, August 10 and September 9 all enjoy the supermoon designation because the centers of these full moons and the center of Earth are less than 361,863 kilometers (224,851 miles) apart. The closest supermoon of the year comes with the August 10 full moon, with a moon that’s only 356,896 kilometers (221,765 miles) from Earth. (Thanks to earthsky.org for this great info!)
Spiritually speaking, the next full moon provides pivotal insights and impetus for moving forward. Some of us are prepared for a major change in our work, location, and/or relationships. Others are transforming ‘how’ more than ‘what’ they are doing. All of us are on a frontier of new perceptions, possibilities, and priorities. How far and fast we go now depends on how much we have healed, forgiven, and integrated. All full moons bring light to the dark, to what has been unconscious.

Weddings and Moons also go hand in hand. There is something utterly romantic about a kiss in the moonlight and what better detail than the moon and stars for your wedding? We've found some great moon details in honor of the first supermoon of 2014. Enjoy and have a great weekend!
