Gibbous Moon

Tonight’s gibbous moon begins its trek through the southern most zodiac constellations: Libra, Scorpius and Sagittarius.

Tonight the moon is in the nondescript constellation Libra. The stars in the constellation are faint and scattered. Yet in mythology, Libra is the sign of scales, used often in the story of law and balance. It is referred to as the orderly, equal scale.

Tomorrow night, the moon begins its journey through the constellation Scorpius, marked by a bright red star, called Antares.

By the beginning of the week, the moon edges towards and through the constellation Sagittarius.

The moon will be full, on Wednesday, July 13. We call this moon the Fisherman’s Moon.
