The full Moon will be brightest tonight in the sign of Sagittarius. This energy is also being amplified by Venus transiting Leo. This will be the third full moon this ear, and will be known as the Strawberry Moon. The name, Strawberry Moon, comes from the time of year when strawberries are ripe for picking. Visible in the night sky for about three days, from June 2 to June 5. It will be brightest on June 3, when it will be opposite the sun in the sky.
Just as sweet as the cover version of "Strawberry Letter 23" by The Brothers Johnson 1977,
A full moon in Sagittarius is a time of great love, PRIDE, and adventure. If you are feeling any of these effects, it is a good time to take advantage of them. Be bold! This is a time to let your spirit soar. It is also a time to let go of old baggage and to embrace new beginnings.
Be open to new ideas and perspectives during this time: Sagittarius is a sign of knowledge and wisdom..
Be willing to take risks outside of your comfort zone: Sagittarius is a sign of adventure.
Be honest with yourself, your dreams, and your fears: Sagittarius is a sign of truth. Be with yourself about your goals.
Have fun: Sagittarius is a sign of joy. Let loose and have some fun during this time.
Beyond the commercialization of PRIDE, this month celebrates important historical markers in the fight for visibility, body autonomy, freedom to self-determine sexual orientation, and dignity for self expression for the LGBTQIA community. All month long across the country celebrations will be happening at the same time our community is being targeted by over 500 anti-trans bills and the elimination abortion access in some states nationally. All of which target the health and stability of the LGBTQIA individuals
June is also the month of Juneteenth Celebrations (June 19th), also known as Emancipation Day or Freedom Day, which commemorates when soldiers arrived in Galveston, Texas to announce that the enslaved people there were free, two and a half years after the Emancipation Proclamation. Now a national holiday, we remember the long and difficult struggle for freedom that African Americans have faced, reflect on how much further we still have to go and find a way to recommit to the work of democracy and racial justice.
Those of us living at the intersections of identity and tuned into the astral realm can feel that change is on the air. What part will you play? Every action counts. So crank up your favorite version of Strawberry Letter 23 or pick up a pack of the fresh red fruit to eat and take part in the wave of change to come this summer.
