The Strawberry Moon: June 03, 2023, ripening and abundance

It is June already and summer has arrived here early in Alberta. The smoke from the wildfires is mostly gone and we had a few good thunderstorms this past weekend.

Tonight for some of us in the northern hemisphere, we will experience a full moon

The Strawberry Moon

From the evening of June 3rd until the morning of June 4th, you may be able to catch a glimpse of this month’s full moon. June’s full moon is more commonly known as the Strawberry Moon. According to the Old Farmer’s Almanac, the local native Americans named the moon for its berry picking season.

In other parts of the world, this full moon is known as Honey and Rose Moon. In terms of spiritual significance, rose and honeysuckle are the flowers for June. So, pick yourself some roses this weekend if you can afford it. I can’t, so I settled on carnations instead.

Spiritual significance

The spiritual significance for this month’s full moon is to focus on new opportunities whether in love or business, renewal of energy, and creating abundance. This coincides with strawberry picking and ripening of other fresh fruits that you may grow in your garden.

With the rising cost of foods, it only makes sense to regrow foods where possible, to stretch your budget longer and also, to be more mindful of waste.

  • Blooming of flowers, pruning and gardening
  • Birth of new projects, ideas or relationships
  • Practicing pleasure (doing things that bring you joy)
  • Picking and eating berries you have grown
  • Ripening both in a physical and spiritual sense
  • Summer solstice preparations and meditations
  • Working with sun and moon energy

I’m not going to share ritual ideas this month due to low engagement. However, I did manage to take a few photos last night. So, enjoy. Unfortunately, it was pretty smoky and hazy last night – so they aren’t as clear as usual.

The Growing Moon: April 5, 2023 – creation, planting & connection

Spring is officially here and it is time to prepare for the upcoming full moon on Wednesday. Depending on where you are in the world, the full moon may start Wednesday night and last into Thursday.

The Growing Moon

More commonly known as Pink Moon, this full moon goes by various names around the world. The moon doesn’t actually turn pink, but the title refers to the blooming of the first pink wildflowers. It is also known as Paschal Full Moon and coincides with Easter weekend which officially starts on Thursday in some parts of the world with Maundy Thursday.

Spiritual significance

The spiritual significance can also vary for the Pink Moon depending on what you practice. I pulled the following information from various sources and picked what resonated most with me.

  • Awakening and illumination
  • Letting go of secrets or revealing secrets
  • Focus on prayer or meditations
  • Plant flowers or herbs for your garden
  • Connect with friends, build on current relationships
  • Make space for new projects and creating things

Here’s a playlist you might enjoy if you like choral music. This is music I tend to listen to in meditation on Good Friday morning, which is this week.

Ritual suggestions

  • Full Moon Circle: spend time outside and gaze at the moon, take pictures, perform a ritual outside to connect with nature
  • Raising energy, dance or play music, chanting – this all creates energy that can be used at the beginning of your rituals
  • Using incense to cleanse your space
  • Gather your crystals and charge under the full moon
  • Make moon water – use a jar or tumbler to charge water
  • Set intentions in a group or on your own
  • Release what no longer serves you purpose
  • Meditate under the moon (if safe to do so)
  • Explore deep breathing techniques
  • Draw 1 Tarot card for a reading and meditate on what it could mean
  • Pick and gather dandelions and either blow the leaves or prepare to use as dried herbs
  • Have a ritual bath with corresponding herbs, crystals and oils
  • Start preparations for Beltane/Beltaine on May 1st
