June!

Halfway through the 2020 year and hope many of you are navigating alright and staying well.

The full moon for June will occur Friday, June 5.  June’s full Moon—typically the last full Moon of spring or the first of summer—is traditionally called the Strawberry Moon. This name originated with Algonquin tribes in eastern North America who knew it as a signal to gather the ripening fruit of wild strawberries.

Alternative European names for this Moon include the Honey Moon and the Mead Moon. It has also been called the Rose Moon, given that many roses come to life during this part of the year!

Did You Know: June was traditionally the month of marriages, and is even named after the Roman goddess of marriage, Juno. Following marriage comes the “honeymoon,” which may be tied to this full Moon’s name!

Everyone is going through this tough time together and so please …  slow down, breathe, be present, “smile” and just “be kind to one another”…

       Stay Well!
