Also called: ROSE MOON - HOT MOON – HONEY MOON – FLOWER MOON
The moon in June is the closest moon to the Summer Solstice, days get longer and you feel the urge to make the most of this time. The Algonquin tribe call this moon the Strawberry moon as this is when they harvest strawberries. In Europe the June moon is called the Rose Moon as the roses bloom and is also called bee moon as the bee get busy collecting pollen from the array of flowers.
Honor and embrace the sun energy as the light is at its strongest and earth tides turn. Use this energy to make decisions and take responsibility for your actions and present circumstances. Clear away dullness or anyone that ‘dulls your shine’. Like as the rose blooms, peel back the petals and bloom yourself!
Work on strengthening your authentic self, ‘feel into your fire’ and shine forth your positive traits! Clear away weakness and inconsistencies. Be active with plans, don’t hold back! Now is the time to go at faster pace at this full yet restful energetic period.
Cleanse clear and de-clutter your possessions, get rid of anything that no longer serves you
Protect your energy as you are in your full power
This is a time for warm nights, let this warmth and affection spread through your live to yourself and those around you (also called ‘Lovers Moon’ a great time to connect to your lover with passion and let the ‘sap rise’).
