STRAWBERRY MOON

This June's Full Moon: Friday, June 5th, 2020

The Strawberry Moon is named for the short period in which wild strawberries can be collected throughout the north-eastern United States. It is also known by its old European names; Honey Moon or Mead Moon, as June is the month in which honey is ready to be harvested, and was traditionally fermented into mead.

This full moon will be the smallest of the year, as the moon reaches its apogee, the furthest it gets from the sun. The moon will also undergo a penumbral eclipse, and while this won't be visible in North America, the eclipse can represent emotional closure-- a time to finally put hurt feelings to rest. Full moons can be emotional: express your emotions, but be cautious not to say something you'll regret.

The Strawberry Moon will occupy the sign of Sagittarius, and the sign's affinity for optimism and friendliness will help with motivation during this time. Don't be afraid to take risks and make the best of opportunities that present themselves: think about what will happen if it does work out!
