Moons

Cyclical Insights

Traditionally in several native cultures, this Moon is known as the Strawberry Moon. This is the last moon cycle of Spring, so ending it on a sweet note of ripening wild strawberries makes perfect sense. We are at the end of the first chapter of the year. Reflecting back on this season, how fertile and bountiful was it for you? This June Moon is also known as the Rose Moon (as roses are in full bloom), and the Honey Moon (as the mating season is coming to a conclusion and new chapters of life, marriage and family begin).

It’s also known as the Mead Mood, as a month’s worth of Honey Wine was gifted to couples to bring sweet intoxication for them to start their journey.

What would you call this moon based on where you live and what you are noticing?
