This week’s Strawberry Moon isn’t strawberry-shaped. It’s not even red. The description comes about because this particular full moon occurs at harvest time. This indicates that now is the best time, astrologically-speaking, for doing a bit of metaphorical harvesting – of facts and information – and making use of all the stuff you’ve learned, worked on or gleaned over the last few months.
The Strawberry Moon is sometimes called The Honey Moon (because of it’s honey-toned hue), very apt for those who are getting married and honeymooning. In fact, although there’s no definite etymological explanations as to the origins of the word ‘honeymoon’, it could well be linked to the fact that the Honey Moon occurs at a time when so many couples choose to get wed.
