The seven days (at least!) prior to a Full Moon are so interesting, full of change, expansion and very often causing us to address anything that needs healing and this one is no different! The rare Full Strawberry Moon in fiery Sagittarius this Friday awakens healing energy for our deepest wounds, which is terribly exciting, it is always good to cleanse, heal & move on. It is a invitation for us to leave financial & relationship issues behind us, to move into a new way of being. For all those that change their thinking & leave behind old habits, this is going to be an extremely exciting phase. The Moon is at it's fullest at 14.09 UK time on 9th June & early in the morning for the U.S..
American Indian Tribe's named the Strawberry Full Moon (or Big Leaf & Rose Moon, as it is also known), as that is when the strawberries are ripe for picking. The names were created as a way of tracking the seasons & lunar months for the tribes. I am extremely interested in Native American Indian's and Shamanic ways, still so much to learn, I think I will still be studying when I am 80 years old.
June's full moon will be a 'mini moon' as it will appear smaller than usual, as it is at the furthest point from the Earth. We are once again in the second half of the year and coming up to the longest day in a couple of weeks. This can bring about extra reflection for many, accessing where they are and what they are doing and is it the best path for them. It is advisable to take a 'step back', take some time for yourself and review your life path. We all deserve to be doing what we love and enjoying what we do.
I am once again including the Full Moon Ritual:
Create a calm / sacred space
Smudge yourself and the area
Feel the earth under your feet (even if you are not on the ground floor / outside). Visualisation is key; visibly shake of any tension from your body.
Write down that which you wish to release
The piece of paper can then be burnt or release into a river/ stream or buried in the ground.
Let go of the old habit / thought / pattern as you release the note and visualise a sense of calm enveloping you
This process can be repeated during the 24 hours surrounding the full moon, if there are additional thoughts that come up. Be sure to enjoy the process.
This Full Moon will be a turning point for many of us within our relationships &/or finances, exciting times. Be open to new possibilities and see what unfolds. A time of great joy, growth & love, much needed at this time! Writing down any thoughts / feeling / reactions you have during this time has so much more impact and you can then refer back throughout the cycle to see how far you have come.
Have a great week and do comment below and let us all know any further knowledge or experiences around full moons.
