July’s Monthly Insight
By Taylor V. July 1, 2021
The Fourth of July—also known as Independence Day or July 4th—has been a tradition since the 18th century and the American Revolution. July 4th has been celebrated/ noted as the birth of American independence. The Declaration of Independence is a historic document & formal statement justifying the break with Great Britain. On July 4th, the Continental Congress formally adopted the Declaration of Independence, which had been largely written by Thomas Jefferson. In 1870, the U.S. Congress made July 4th a federal holiday; in 1941, the provision was expanded to grant a paid holiday to all federal employees. As of today, Independence Day is celebrated nationally through fireworks, outdoor barbecues, and leisurely activities.
The birth flowers of July are the Larkspur and the Water Lily. The Larkspur indicates strong bonds of love, whereas the Water Lily symbolizes purity and majesty. The Birthstone for July is The Ruby. Rubies are considered the king of gems and are used to represent love, health, and wisdom.

Spiritual Uplifts Magical Moon for July
By Linda Pritchard, July 1, 2021
July’s full moon is known as the “Blessing Moon.” In the magical world, this is the time where we work on meditation and reflection. Although, native tribes would call it the “Buck Moon” because this is the time of the year when the young bucks’ antlers grow.
Last Quarter July 1 5:12 P.M.
New Moon July 9 9:17 P.M.
First Quarter July 17 6:11 A.M.
Full Moon July 23 10:37 P.M.
Last Quarter July 31 9:18 A.M.
For the full moon ritual, we are going to do an independence ritual, creating more security and self-worth in our life.
You will need:
White sage or sage spray- To cleanse the space before the ritual.
One gold and one rose gold- The gold candle represents independence and the rose gold is for self-love.
One honeysuckle candle- This candle is to focus on what you want for independence. It does not have to be this candle it can be anything. Focus on your intent.
One garnet crystal- This is to hold the enchantment so you can carry it around with you.
Cleanse the room around you with the sage. Light the two gold candles. Next light your honeysuckle candle. Sit quietly and visualize a golden light move from the top of your head to the bottom of your feet. The light is a beautiful bright gold. Now visualize yourself succeeding in gaining the independence you are wanting.
Once you are done put the crystal in your pocket and thank the divine for this blessing.
Love you all, Lynn.

July 2021 is a 3 Universal Month, the number of optimism, joy, enthusiasm and creativity. This month brings us creative energy in order to embrace our inner child and engage in what brings you joy. Be sure to take advantage of this extra energy by channeling it into a creative outlet. Unfocused energy can lead to chaos and disorganization.
Did you also know that each of the numbers have a certain color associated with it? The color that corresponds to the number 3 is yellow, the color of the Solar Plexus chakra, that just so happens to be the third chakra on the body. Also, the Solar Plexus chakra is where our self-esteem lives. As a result, this month is the time to embrace constructive self-expression by vocalizing your desires or speaking up for yourself. If you’ve been holding back on what you want to achieve, now is the time to speak up without apologizing. When we vocalize our desires then go back on our word, we are communicating to the Universe that we are not serious. Take advantage of this energy and go after what you want!
