☾ The Strawberry Moon

Welcome Back! For our third rendition of the Moon-Lunar series! Last month in May we had the Flower Moon with the incredible total Lunar Eclipse (Blood Moon!) I mean, what a treat right? I absolutely love learning and feeling more and more connected to the Full Moons as we move through the months!

So it is time for June’s Strawberry Moon! Are you ready? Bring on 14th June 22 with the Full Moon at peak at 11:52pm GMT!

Strawberry Moon – This moon has been named after the Strawberries that begin to ripen at this time of year and according to astrologers, believe it provides room for luck, love and prosperity.

This moon is also in the zodiac, Sagittarius!

Strawberry Moon – June 2022

Full Moon – The Facts!

  1. A full Moon occurs when the Moon appears as a complete circle in the sky. We see it as a full orb because the whole of the side of the Moon facing the Earth is lit up by the Sun’s rays.

  2. The Moon produces no visible light of its own, so we can only see the parts of the Moon that are lit up by other objects. A small amount of light comes from distant stars and the reflection of light from the Earth (known as ‘Earthshine’). However the main source of light for the Moon is the Sun.

  3. The Moon appears as different shapes in the sky depending on its ‘phase’, from new Moon to full Moon via ‘waxing’ (growing) and ‘waning’ (shrinking) moons. These phases are determined by the relative positions of the Sun, Earth and Moon.

  4. If the Moon is between the Earth and the Sun in its orbit, then the back side of the Moon is lit up and the side facing the Earth is in darkness. This is called a New Moon.

  5. If the Moon is on the opposite side of the Earth to the Sun, then the near side of the Moon will be fully lit up: a Full Moon.

  6. A full Moon happens roughly every 29.5 days. This is the length of time it takes for the Moon to go through one whole lunar phase cycle.

What Does the Strawberry Moon Mean For Zodiac Signs?

Imani Rae – Astrologer gives guidance on what this Supermoon means for us.

Capricorn: The strawberry moon offers the perfect opportunity to give yourself a pat on the back. “Stop giving into imposter syndrome and know that you are worthy of everything that you want and more,” Rae said. “Stop allowing self-doubt to overtake you and change the daily narrative that you tell yourself.”

Aquarius: Try exploring your creative side this month, as it will help you with manifesting your goals. “Creative ideas will flow to you naturally,” Rae said. “This is a good time to keep a dream journal and pay attention to your inner dialogue. It’s time to manifest your dreams into reality.”

Pisces: Rae recommends that Pisces spend time near water and recharge themselves. “Allow yourself to take a break and really work on creating a morning and night routine that resonates with your body,” Rae said. “This is also a good time to set your intentions and allow yourself to daydream.”

Aries: Now is the time for rebirth and reorganisation. “If you feel like your ideas are always all over the place, take some time to come up with a plan that is realistic,” Rae said. “Create habits that you are able to stick with and don’t feel overwhelmed by. Allow yourself to get out of your own head and live more in reality.”

Taurus: The strawberry moon is a wakeup sign for Taurus to stop procrastinating. “Your manifestations are closer than you think,” Rae explained. “It’s time to take that first leap and just go for it. This is also a good time to transform how you look at failure. You can truly never succeed if you never try. Go for it!”

Gemini: It’s time to consult your own feelings rather than logic. “For far too long, you have been only listening to your brain, but it’s time to really follow your passion,” Rae said. “Stop ignoring your intuition, and trust yourself. You know what’s best for you, and it’s time that you allow your confidence to shine.”

Cancer: Rae recommends you focus on nurturing yourself during the strawberry moon. “You are always giving to others, and it’s time to give back to yourself,” Rae said. “Plan some time to take yourself on a self-care date and really focus on what you want. Focus on how to give yourself the love that you deserve.”

Leo: You shouldn’t hold yourself back this month, especially when it comes to your achievements and confidence. “You can still uplift others while uplifting yourself,” Rae explained. “It’s important to put your energy into people that put their energy back into you.”

Virgo: Virgos need to start detoxing the negativity they hold toward themselves this month. “Start adding positive affirmations to your day, and start shifting your mindset,” Rae said. “Know that you are not your negative thoughts and that they don’t define you.”

Libra: For Libras, the strawberry moon will allow an opportunity for intense self-care. “You do not have to do what everyone wants,” Rae said. “Focus on what you desire, and watch that manifest. The more you align with the person you want to be, more opportunities will follow.”

Scorpio: Scorpios, get ready to bring down your walls during the strawberry moon. “We know how hard it is for you to share your emotions, but it’s OK to not be OK,” Rae said. “Reach out for help when needed, and allow yourself to be vulnerable. This is a good time to journal and have a place to let out all of your negative emotions.”

Sagittarius: If you’ve been planning a trip around this time, definitely stick to it. “This is a good time to take a trip or plan your next staycation,” Rae explained. “Switching your location can aid in shifting your mindset.”

We recommend for all zodiacs that you use this time to complete your rituals, cleanse your energy, journal, and focus on what you want to attract and manifest into your life.

What do Full Moon Rituals look like?

As we’ve said, engaging in Full Moon rituals is a great way to connect with yourself, recharge, relax and is the perfect time to manifest, setting new intentions and also to let go of any negativity.

So, I’ll share what I do on a Full Moon Ritual

  1. Turn off your phone and find a quiet space – this is your time to be with yourself, your thoughts and emotions. So give yourself a space of no distractions whether you’re inside or outside.

  2. Cleanse your space – If I stay inside, I will tidy the room I am in and make sure it is a clean, minimal space. I will then light some incense or sage and cleanse my space around me.

  3. Meditate/Deep Breathing – Whether its guided or silent, meditation allows you time to sit in quiet and reflect on your thoughts. Meditation and reflection can also bring up emotions and help you heal wounds or trauma and so deep breathing will support you in working through those feelings.

  4. Gratitude – Give thanks and feel gratitude for what you have in your life, from the little things, the air you breath, to people in your life or milestones you have experienced.

  5. Journal – Journaling is so key for me in a full moon ritual. I use this time as an opportunity to start again, just as the moon does. I will set intentions for the month and then also on a separate list, write down what I want to let go of, energy, relationships, thoughts etc. (make sure you dispose of the negative list afterwards, whether you burn it or flush it down the loo, get it out of your life!)

  6. Lift your vibrations – These rituals are to let go of all that does not serve you and bring in the positive intentions, manifestations and vibrations – so do something that really lifts your mood afterwards – DANCE! Play some great music and move your body post meditation to get those good vibrations going!

  7. Take a bath – Baths are so cleansing and it is not uncommon to infuse your bath with everything from flowers, to essential oils and salts. Even crystals. @girlandthemoon – is my go to for any full moon ritual baths! But use this time to feel as though you are washing away all that isn’t meant for you anymore and put it down the plug.

  8. Lastly, Relax – After you’ve cleansed, meditated, breathed, journaled, manifested and let go of all of the negative. A ritual can take its toll as you work through all of that emotional energy. So give yourself time to relax, rituals look different for everyone depending on the time of your life, what you want to gain from them etc. so for me my rituals are always around 8pm once my son is in bed and so, I tend to want to go straight to sleep after all of the emotional output. Feeling grateful and looking forward to this new cycle, I will sleep. But relaxing looks different for everyone, I may do a ritual on a weekend and afterwards, jump in the bath. Ultimately do what works for you.

So in summary, as humans we are connected to the moon just as we are connected to nature and a great way to feel connected to yourself, is to align with the lunar cycles and use it as an opportunity to release what is no longer serving you. But also to reflect on what you are grateful for and manifest what you want to bring into your life.

Each month we will bring you new information on the Moon for that month, new ideas and suggestions for your rituals including adding in crystals, charging them and how-too’s for Moon Water, smudging sticks etc.
