Thursday, 24 June 2021(Capricorn): Full Strawberry-Moon
The full Strawberry Moon transports me back to perfect early summer days, drenched in nostalgia. Freedom, sunshine & sunburn. My mother was part of a team who used to harvest strawberries, backbreaking, exhausting work but such delicious prizes! especially with clotted cream & a couple of pots of her strong tea.
Strawberry Moon Astrology:
The Astrology of this one encourages us to deal with frustration, low level anger, some general unfocussed grumpiness. I certainly feel it, realise hoe the day to day, chippy remarks, technology niggles can all build our stress levels. What small battles could we take on that would yield a huge shift in our life. I’ve fixed my router for example & all those subconscious ‘spinning disk’ moments have been removed, how liberating!
I sat with this moon card a while. The massive shifts occurring, the extraordinary, unbelievable news breaking on a seemingly daily basis. All of this is inevitably shaking us all up.
Then I dug deeper. I realised that as we are making noises about returning to normal, ‘easing the restrictions’, there are elements of life that I just don’t want to revisit.
This has been a transformational cathartic time for me, I really want to continue some of the journeys I’ve started in the recent months.
It’s time to shine. Full Moons always herald a shift for me, time to grow. Things are changing like never before, will you?
The full moon is always a time of full energy. A moment of enlightenment, literally and figuratively. Expect the secrets revealed, great ideas, sudden clarity, and hidden impacts at work to the surface.
This moon got its name because the Algonquins of North America knew it as a signal to harvest ripe fruits (especially strawberries).
In Europe popular as “Rose Moon” (as strawberry is not native here). In Cree, it is famous as Sagipkawipizen, which means “the moon when leaves come out.” Other names are “hot moon,” “honeymoon,” and “planting moon.”
