Summer Soltice 6/21/19. The Sun appears to stop moving in the sky as it reaches its northern- or southernmost point. After the solstice, the Sun appears to reverse course and head back in the opposite direction. The Sun is overhead at the Tropic of Cancer. Eating strawberries is the perfect way to celebrate the June solstice, since June’s full Moon is also known as the Full Strawberry Moon.
Full Strawberry Moon 6/17: This Full Moon is 25 degrees in Sagittarius and characterized by a lively energy and excitement since it is in conjunction with the expansive Jupiter. Enthusiasm and adventure may be the emotional hallmarks of the month, BUT Neptune in Pisces widely squares this alignment. Enthusiasm and idealism in relationships may be strong, and bring some blissful moodiness. Just remember to stay anchored in reality, because you are not likely to be in the most practical mindset. This Full Moon intensifies and emotionalizes 2019’s Jupiter square to Neptune, which is likely to bring mass delusion in the first place.
General suggestions / observations
This cycle is based on empirical data meaning enough data was observed and recorded to make it possible to suggest attitudes and reactions. Keep in mind that we all have free will and thus results will vary from one individual to another.
The graph shows the energy high at the beginning of the cycle (not unlike any other astrological aspect) followed by a slow down before it gets strong and again this reflects years of tracking and noting feedback from our many students.
If you are making a decision during this time you might want to let it set for a day or two then check your decision again to see if it still makes sense. However, you can feel into the ebb and flow and find good times to work on self emotionally in both the low and high points. Impatience, emotion and acts without thinking are common.
With practice you can also feel when the energy is there to help bring completion to tasks, goals and projects you may be working on.
