The June Full Moon is known as the Strawberry Moon, as this is the month that berries start to come into season. However, there may well be an actual berry red moon this June! This is because on Friday June the 5th we will witness a full moon eclipse. During a lunar eclipse the sun’s usual reflection is obscured by the Earth so the moon reflects the Earth’s light instead. The moon becomes full at 20:23 GMT, the eclipse should take place earlier that morning and won’t be fully visible. However the energy will resonate for sometime. Read on to find out what’s in store for the June full moon…
June Full Moon
The pinnacle of the Luna cycle is the full moon. It’s face turning to us once a month is a constant illumination throughout our life. A full moon happens on day 16 of its steady 29.5 day orbit around Earth. It’s enduring presence inspired our fears and imaginations. People of the past feared the full moon, believing it brought about madness and untold dangers. Even now research has suggested time again that there are more emergency calls around a full moon. Our pagan ancestors would have revered it, honouring it as a God. And any farmer’s almanac would tell you of the increased growth of their crops during a full moon.

June Full Moon Astrology
This moon will be in Sagittarius. As the world starts to reopen after months of lockdown the Sagittarius energy will push your need for adventure. We will feel our own truth and want to express ourselves honestly and directly to those around us. This is a great time for action in romance too, for those without partners it’s a great time to connect with others. If you’re in a relationship now is the time to get motivated and get outside for some physical challenges together.
Venus will still be in its retrograde period bringing challenges, in some cases standstills in money, love and luxuries. Mercury goes retrograde later in the month, on June 18, this full moon will be near the mercury retrograde shadow period. This energy is changeable, expect your plans to be switched at a minute’s notice. When we do the maths we see that the best way forward is to go with the flow. Don’t invest in new people emotionally or financially.
This month generally is a time for reflection and slow flexible progression.
