Celebrate Yourself: Self-Love Rituals for the June Strawberry Moon

Full moons are a fantastic time to cleanse and release all the things that might be holding you back from stepping into your true authentic self. The full moon is often considered a time to let go of what no longer serves you, including negative emotions or habits.

The Strawberry Moon, the full moon that typically occurs in June, holds special significance as it marks the peak of the strawberry harvesting season. This enchanting lunar event is celebrated across various cultures for its symbolism of abundance, fertility, and the beginning of summer. Named by Indigenous Americans (including the Lakota, the Obijwe, the Algonquin, and the Dakota) who would gather ripening strawberries during this time, the Strawberry Moon encourages reflection on growth and gratitude for nature's bounties. It serves as a reminder to appreciate the sweetness of life, foster personal growth, and embrace the fruitful opportunities that come with the new season.

A Strawberry Moon invites us to connect deeply with the rhythms of nature and the cycles of the moon. This luminous full moon symbolizes a time of fruition, abundance, and renewal. Spiritually, it encourages us to harvest the fruits of our intentions and efforts, reflecting on the personal growth and progress we've made. 

By meditating under its glow, setting new intentions, or simply basking in its light, we can align ourselves with its nurturing energy, fostering a sense of gratitude, balance, and harmony within. The Strawberry Moon is a powerful reminder to celebrate our journey, honor our achievements, and remain open to the blessings that come our way.

Another wonderful way to embrace the Full Moon is to write in your journal. Have you kept track of your achievements? What are you grateful for? Do you include yourself on your list? There is no better time to practice self-love in your everyday life than under a Strawberry Moon. 

As you experience the positive energy of the Full Moon, remember that self-love is a journey, not a destination. Allow yourself to be gentle and patient with yourself as you navigate this path. By harnessing the energy of the Strawberry Moon and infusing yourself with positivity and self-love, you'll cultivate a sense of inner peace, joy, and fulfillment that radiates outward into every aspect of your life.

Embrace the magic of the Full Moon and let its positive energy guide you on your journey to self-love.

Full Moon Release Prayer

“Under the light of the full Moon, I release all attachments that are holding me back from my highest good. With each breath, I release all fears, negative thoughts and beliefs, and self-imposed limitations. I call on the power of the Moon to support me in letting go as I drop all masks, burdens, shame and emotional pain. As the Moon wanes towards darkness, I let go of the past, and open my heart to transformation. Blessed be this release under the full Moon’s watchful glow.”
