FULL MOON FOR JUNE RISES ON THE SUMMER SOLSTICE! – June 20th, 2016 7:04 AM EST
For June 2016 the solstice and full Moon coincide—a rare event, indeed, that hasn’t happened in nearly 70 years. The month of June’s Full Moon’s name is the Full Strawberry Moon. June’s Full Strawberry Moon got its name because the Algonquin tribes knew it as a signal to gather ripening fruit. It was often known as the Full Rose Moon in Europe and the Honey Moon.
I have one major phrase that can sum up this moon. EVERYTHING about it is geared towards those who work with healing arts, reading arts, or casting arts.
Thankfully, the moon has Cancer rising, so this brings off a gentler softer energy with it. The energy will be a bit on the reserved side, but that is only as it approaches the Summer Solstice, which will shake things up a bit more. Those working with this moon will find that they may look for ways to strengthen their emotions and work towards that sense of belonging they may have been missing in their life. The call of your ancestors may be very strong as well. If you have close ties to the Gods and Goddesses of your ancestors, the call may be exponentially strong with this moon not only because of its alignment, but because it is the trumpet call for the solstice.
This moon is about loyalties and also about honoring yourself and your beliefs. These may get stretched to the breaking point, but you must remain steadfast and hold true. If you have no honor within yourself, you cannot have honor outside of yourself. Try to avoid the “if it is good for me and mine, it is good. If it is not good for me and mine, it is no good” attitude; that is a negative approach to honoring yourself as well as those you are protective of.
This moon can be used to harvest energy for making changes and adjusting your life path. You may not necessarily be seeking radical changes; you might just want to shift and adjust, looking and seeking to be rather pragmatic about it.
Oh my dear intuitive and reader; you have this gut in you that just rings true. You just know things. You see, hear, smell, feel, sense all these wondrous and yes, not so wondrous things in our world. You have a hard time explaining these needs and urges to others. It is a FEELING and this moon is only going to make those feelings even more powerful. Your dreams and visions may just explode with extrasensory energy and you are going to need a place and time to ground and center.
Work and play with your eternal child that sits deep. This moon is full of Gemini energy and this is a fantastic way to reconnect to that bright, alert, curious, flexible and playful energy, except with a more adult twist. If you are a spell caster or charm maker, oh the things you could come up with experimenting within this energy. Don’t be surprised if you don’t know where to start. This moon’s energy isn’t going to be very good at helping you with that part of your endeavors. Watch out for the bright light blinking in the corner distracting you, chase after it later, and keep focused on your chosen task.
For the healers out there, what a moon this will be to work on expanding your arts. You may find that your ability to hone in on the deeper problem at hand is exponentially increased. Avoid feeling conflicted about anything you may innately feel about a client. Maintain a harmonious space while working and you can achieve some things you have only dreamed of doing.
To all those dreamers out there… GET CREATIVE! IF you have a flair for language, playing with words, speaking, writing, or teaching, music or anything that is considered creative… you are going to have some strong energy pushing you forward.
Our moon didn’t leave out our science based folks either. This energy will also carry with it that extra oomph for those who have an aptitude for solving difficult mental problems. Your careful, methodical approach, attention to detail, and tenacity will get some extra juice behind it.
Normally, I finish my full moon readings with a list of positive and negative key words to keep in mind. With that being said, this moon does NOT lend itself to this pattern. Very little of it was negative. However I want to talk directly to those who walk a different path. This moon is leading us straight into a crossroad that I have often talked about before in various readings and even in my yearly overviews. We are shifting and changing. The world is shifting and changing. To let this full moon pass you by without ANY intention work done with it will only put you towards the back of the shift. We are those who have the ability to keep together the fabric and seams of our world. Right now those seams are tearing apart. We can reshape it all. So the question I have for you and something I want you to think about with this moon is this; do you want to be one of the ones sowing a better future, or do you want to be the one that gets left behind and wonder how we got to where we are?
This energy is a gift; a beautiful precious gift. Do not let it go to waste.
