Rare Full Moon ~ June 20th!
Strawberry Moon, Blue Moon, Rare Summer Solstice Full Moon…
Monday's Full Moon in Sagittarius is all of the above! This is the second Sagittarius full moon in two months, what is often called a Blue Moon. This combined with its falling on the Summer Solstice makes for a very rare lunar event. A Full Moon has not occurred on a Summer Solstice for over 70 years, and won’t happen again until 2094!
The Solstice is the longest day of the year—offering 15 hours of daylight. This day is traditionally a time of celebration, of honoring the light and our connection to Father Sun and Mother Earth. It is also a time where the Sun and Moon can be seen in the sky at the same time. The Summer Solstice symbolizes abundance--personal and spiritual--a time to bask in the warm solar light, relax and watch the fruits of our labor ripen and grow. (I have three plum, two pear and four apple trees on my property, and I can’t wait for them to bear fruit!)
This a Blue Moon, so think back to a month ago, to the last Sag full moon…what was your focus then? What were you thinking, feeling, wanting? The hopeful seeds of your desires planted then have the opportunity to come to fruition now. This full moon also joins Saturn, bringing a sense of structure and completion. Look for an even greater sense of manifestation and wholeness when Mars (in Scorpio) goes direct at the end of month!
Happy Illuminations and Summer Solstice!
