Full Moon: Strong Sun Moon, June 2


I could post an enormous amount of info every full moon, but I am trying to boil it down to usable bits and pieces.
So, the down and dirty deets on tomorrow’s full moon:

Strong Sun Moon, also sometimes called Lovers’ Moon, exact around noon on Tuesday 6/2

“In June, the sun has taken over and the fields are growing. Flowers have bloomed, we’re beginning to see some early summer fruits and vegetables (a great time for strawberry crops!), and the days are getting longer and longer. It’s a far cry from the darkness of winter, and we typically try to spend as much time outside as possible. It’s a time for bonding with friends and family, and forging what connections we can.  Nurture your relationships, your garden, your career, and your soul this month.  Magical workings are well suited to maintaining and enhancing things you already have. Weed your garden, prune the bushes, give your lawn all the tender loving care it needs. Take time to let your personal life blossom as well — focus on things that improve your job or education, as well as your relationships with family and friends.”

This full moon is in Sagittarius – for the next two weeks, we are looking for balance, and are aware that something needs to be brought into alignment.  We need to find balance between our thoughts (Gemini sun) and our quest for larger truth (Sagittarius moon).  We are invited to unify mind and heart to discover new possibilities.  The urge to go beyond our everyday, familiar routines is essential to our growth.

Sagittarius energy shows us the bigger picture and wisdom gained from life experience.  Gemini wants us to process and share information quickly.  Ask yourself: how do I communicate?  Do my interactions promote separation or unity?  Judging, blaming, criticizing, labeling – these all separate vs. unify.

During the next two weeks, we have energetic support to be brave with new ideas, taking risks, and embracing new perspectives.  This is a time to stretch, grow, slow down, and go within.  Make an effort to create time and space for daily rituals that are meaningful and nourishing to you.  This will help us connect to heart center; this is definitely time to tap into intuition and the vast universal knowledge we have access to.  Let your heart guide you and stay centered, allowing yourself to be less reactive and make fewer errors.  We become more peaceful productive as we connect to the awareness of the here and now – keep connecting with your inner self daily!

How are you all using this Sagittarius full moon energy?  Mooncircles has some great posts about this full moon, and a short ritual to help align with the energy.
