The Strawberry Moon

Once a month, the Earth lands directly between the Sun & the Moon, bringing the Moon to its complete illumination phase. This astronomical occurrence is what we know as the Full Moon. The Full Moon taking place this month is happening today, Saturday, June 3rd. The Moon will be visible in the evening right after sunset, appearing large with a golden essence.


Check below to see when The Full Strawberry Moon will reach its peak illumination in your area!


The Full Moon of June is known as the first Full Moon of Summer! June is also when we welcome Summer Solstice, typically taking place around the third week of the month. This Moon is known as the Strawberry Moon, because this is the time when strawberries become fully red & ripe, making them perfect for harvesting. Some cultures or tribes have also given the name Blooming Moon for the blossoming plants, or the Green Corn Moon as it is the season certain crops need tending to. In European regions, it is known as the Honey Moon, in relation to June being the month of marriage.



The Strawberry Moon will be in the fire sign of Sagittarius. Sagittarius is constantly looking to learn, explore, & experience more, it is a sign that craves to know what the Universe has to offer. This is the ideal time to be a little adventurous, a little courageous, & open yourself & heart to change & fun. Consider expanding your horizons, trusting in yourself that you can think bigger & reach higher. Try new things, or give extra attention to what gives you joy, making sure you set time aside to enjoy this experience & live in the present moment. Keep in mind that it is okay to be open to change, trust in your abilities & intuition - embracing the fact that you know what is best for you right now while also stepping away from the opinions of others.



The energy we feel sparking within & around us is one of encouragement. It is a call to embark on a journey of self discovery, spiritual awakening, & personal growth! With the sun lifting our spirits & the warmth kissing our cheeks, summer is in the air & it is setting the tone for us to follow in those footsteps. This energy is one we should embrace so that we can use it to act on our intentions, manifest our desires, work on our relationships, & transform ourselves. We are all worthy of love, abundance, success, joy, & peace - now is when we receive the fruit of our efforts!

Have you tried Moonlight Meditation?

  1. Gather any items you like to meditate with - I recommend crystals, incense, &/or a prayer shawl

  2. Find a place outdoors where you feel comfortable lying down - you can use a blanket, towel, mat etc.

  3. Stretch a bit, take a few deep breaths, loosen up & when you are ready lie down under the Moon

  4. Bask in the luminescence of the Full Moon, allowing the energy to flow through you

  5. Find a moment of stillness & mindfulness, taking peaceful breaths & finding comfort within

  6. Once you are satisfied with your moment of mindfulness, talk to the moon & tell it what it is you wish to release tonight, as well as what you are looking forward to pursuing

  7. When you feel you are done, give Mother Moon a thank you!
