Strawberry Moon – This name was universal to every Algonquin tribe. However, in Europe they called it the Rose Moon. Also because the relatively short season for harvesting strawberries comes each year during the month of June . . . so the full Moon that occurs during that month was christened for the strawberry!
Native Americans also referred to this as Moon of the Corn. Always the growth of corn, the first cultivated crop, marked a time when culture took a leap forward. Corn fields were the heart of early villages. This grain is symbolic of intelligence and versatility. Corn has long been used in many nutritious dishes. The dried kernels can also be turned into jewelry and used in blessing rituals. Picking by moonlight is said to honor the crops.
This full moon is a sacred time for Native American women as they use it as a time to send up prayers for everyone and cleanse their spiritual selves.
It is extremely rare for the Full Moon, which always opens the veil to subtle energies and heightens the pace of life over all, to coincide with a Friday the 13th. Expect the unexpected and be alert to nuances. In many states the police are gearing up for more unusual activity on this full moon.
Because of it being Mercury Retrograde this is a perfect time to clean out your life. Many people believe that whenever there is a Mercury Retrograde that you should not do anything and wait till it passes. Well in the real world that just doesn’t work. Life goes on! So let’s remember the gifts that this period brings and trust that this is a good time of reflection and revising your journey in life. In the grand flow of life, these inward moving energies are conducive for fine tuning and helping to bring greater clarity, awareness, and focus
• Cleansing Your Spirit
• Clean out closets and drawers
• Clean off the clutter around your sleeping area
• Clean out old papers and receipts
You can take your time and do this cleaning over the next few weeks. It will benefit you enormously on your spiritual path.
I feel that all full moons are a special time for us to connect to the Great Spirit as well as the moon. Do something special in honor of this rare full moon.
