Corn Planting Moon

Corn Planting Moon

“Life is a circle, from birth to death to rebirth.  Humans, like the seasons, pass through many phases during their lives.  The moon stones of the Medicine Wheel give us a way of understanding and celebrating these changes.  The moon during which you were born determines your starting point on the wheel.”[1]

Deer Moon

Does your birthday fall between May 21st and June 19th?

If so, you were born under the Corn Planting Moon and will have a long term, special bond with this moon and its energies.


For you, and others making their journey around the Medicine Wheel of Life, this moon is an important time of rejuvenation.

The Spirit Keeper of the Corn Planting Moon is Wabun, the Spirit Keeper of the East Wind.  The Animal totem is the Deer (some use the Elk).  The time is one of the Butterfly Clan bringing the spirit of the element of Air. The crystal totem of this moon is the Moss Agate and all green and white crystals and stones.

Born under this moon, like your animal totem, the Deer, you are a gracious creature with a great balance. Your mind has a habit of staying attuned to your environment. You automatically notice when something is out of place. Simulating the Deer’s actions, once you feel threatened or spooked, you tend to flee quickly as possible.

When you are having a difficult time, you have a tendency to flee from your problems and fears. This often prevents you from accepting yourself and your dreams. You may also make a habit of finding security through possession of material items rather than thru love and affection.


If you were born during this moon, your totem, the Deer will guide you through your life. Together, you and the Deer will work on facing your issues with inner strength. Like the Deer who displays himself with pride, majestically holding his head high, he wants you to learn to meet other people on their level without stooping below your own.

Feeling fatigued, weary, or lifeless is your body’s way of saying you are in need of a healthy rejuvenation.

This is your body’s way of telling you that you are in need of a healthy rejuvenation.

The Deer, and the spirit of Wabun will help you realize the importance of taking care of your own body to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

You will find that when you eat better you have less stress and more energy. You may also need the spirit guides of this moon to aid you in keeping a healthy mental wellbeing.

Running Deer

Sometimes, we sacrifice intimacy for freedom. If you are very independent, and find holding sustainable relationships difficult, the Deer and the spirit guides of this moon may be of help.

Use the strength of the Deer to establish a solid foundation to your relationships so you can come and go, and not feel tied down by the demands of others.

To bring the spirit of the Deer, the guidance of Wabun, and the energy of this moon into your life, use a Moss Agate crystal.

Build your Medicine Wheel in a meadow on a summer day.  Place all the stones leaving the space for the Corn Planting Moon until last.

Moss Agate

Finally place your moss agate.  Held inside this stone is strength and agility. Once you tap into its energies, you will experience a surge of powerful strength.

With your Medicine Wheel set up, run through the grass and let the wind whirl around you. Native Americans used agate as a talisman to construct victorious and robust warriors. You too can act as a warrior fighting against the urges of fatigue and distractions!

Remember, you are as free as your mind is. Let the spirit of this moon free you of the fears that are robbing you from a robust appreciation of life and joy.

To keep the energy and spirit of the Corn Planting Moon, even after you put your Medicine Wheel away, keep the moss agate in a pocket. Take it out every morning and feel the strength and renewal it will bring.
