Full Strawberry Moon

A toast and a quote to all my family and friends on this lovely full Strawberry Moon.

“Intention is one of the most powerful forces there is. What you mean when you do a thing will always determine the outcome. The law creates the world.” — Brenna Yovanoff

The June Full Moon or the last full Moon of spring is called the Full Strawberry Moon. This Full Moon got its name from the Algonquin tribes in eastern North America who knew it as a signal to gather the ripening fruit of wild strawberries.  An old European name for this Moon is the Honey Moon or the Mead Moon. It has also been called the Full Rose Moon in Europe. (Mead is a drink created by fermenting honey mixed with water, sometimes with fruits, spices, grains, or hops.)

Naming the full Moons is an age-old practice. Ancient peoples commonly tracked the seasons by following the lunar calendar (versus today’s Gregorian calendar, which is a solar calendar). For millennia, people across the world—including Native Americans—named the months after nature’s cues. Later, Colonial Americans adopted many of the Native American names and incorporated them into the modern calendar
