Friday night marks the Full moon in Sagittarius, also known as the Strawberry moon, or the Strong Sun moon. The moon will peak on Friday, June 9th at 9:10 am EST. This full moon will be strong with intense energy, optimism, and crystal clear seeing. After a more subtle full moon in the month of May, June’s full moon is a burst of intense energy that may be a bit of a shock to the system. Gather your bearings, hold on and ride the waves of this months strong energy to the gifts it can provide in your life.
The Strawberry moon this month is in a fire sign- which allows for a playful energy to emerge. Optimism may abound, if you allow it. Harness this playful energy and let it weave a web into your life- laugh more, dance more, be silly with your loved ones. Look on the bright side of things. Those glorious silver linings that at times are hard to see are gleaming right now and all it takes is for you to find it. When you do, be sure to jump in head first and look on the bright side. Use your new found optimism to inspire others, as the full moon is an intense time for most people, and it can swing either way. Allow your happiness to affect those around you so they, too, can fall into the playful spirit of this Strawberry moon.
This full moon does have two sides to its coin. It is also a time to delve deeply into your surroundings and relationships. You should be able to see crystal clear now, and make sure to use that fresh sight to exam your own life, and those involved in your life. On one side of the coin, you have the playful spirit and optimism of this moon, but on the other, be serious in your examination of what the universe is trying to show you. Be open to the karmic lessons coming your way, which will bring you understanding and clarity on so many levels. As always, there’s the time for fun and play, and a time for life lessons, and they both happen to be at the same time right now. The trick to navigating this moon is to use the optimism to guide you through the lessons being served to you, have a light heart, and allow peace to enter your life with whatever you may learn. Allow the transformation, don’t resist it.
Full Moon Release:
Begin by clearing an area to set up a sacred space. Bring a bowl of water, a candle, and a notebook into the sacred space- and also anything that brings you comfort such as pictures, crystals, etc.
Take a few deep cleansing breaths, in through the nose and out through the mouth with a loud sigh. Begin to release that old, stale energy and allow room for new, optimistic energy.
Light your candle, and write down on a small sheet of paper one thing you need to let go of in your life. Commit to it, as you put the paper into the flame. Release it as it begins to burn the paper, and finally allow it to dissolve into the bowl of water.
On your other sheet of paper, write down a few things you would like to allow to enter your life. Whatever it is that you are desiring, need, or want. Allow that note to be placed by your bed, on your nightstand, or under your pillow until the next full moon. Allow yourself to see it daily so you can begin to manifest it into your life. Out with the old, in with the new.
Love and Light.
