This Strawberry Moon will be unusual as it will be a Full Moon on the beginning on Summer Solstice. It is a rare event, occurring only once in a lifetime. Strawberry Moon (or Rose Moons in Europe) derives its name from the harvest time for such fruit among the Algonquin tribes. Another of this month’s Sagittarius Full Moons (See my article FlowerMoon: Full Moon in Sagittarius), It is a time of exploration of one’s needs and requirements. What are the things you need to feed and nurture you? But rather than just meditating upon such concerns, Sagittarius will encourage you to physically seek out those things that will satisfy said needs.
Much like the Algonquin seeking out strawberries, find those sweet and compelling items to satisfy your hungers. Unlike the Flower Full Moon, which was buffeted by the Mercury Retrograde in Taurus, This Full moon is a great time to engage in and pursuit new projects. Full moon lends a nurturing energy to new endeavors. The only caveat at this time is that Saturn current position in Sagittarius will also provide greater challenges and obstacles. Just Saturn’s way of keeping you on point
This full moon on the cusp of the Summer Solstice should offer the warm, stimulating energies to elevate your perceptions and senses with regards to any and all plans. If we take in account the Sun’s entry into Cancer on the June 22, dwelling upon the concerns of the Moon may prove very beneficial and synchronicitous.
Fiery moons are known for their capricious, high dramatic natures, so work with the grounding elements of Saturn to stay focus upon what really matters to you.
Sagittarius’, with the Sun’s entry into Gemini, this full moon should offer ideas and inspiration. Find that which you resonate with and after the 23rd, start working on your plans! Gemini’s, this moon will offer priorities and clear agendas. Seek to feed yourself on whatever level you need.
Recognizing what you need and what will enrich and sustain your being will play an important part of the upcoming week. Revel and embrace the Strawberry Moon as you enter the Summer season
