Today is a “once in a lifetime” occurrence, the full moon (Full Strawberry Moon) takes place on the same day as the summer solstice.
The last time it happened was 1967, and it will happen again in 2094- I don’t expect to be around for that. (I’d be 142.) Can you feel the energy? Perhaps not. I am more attuned to the air pressure, temperature, and changing light. But it’s there. Same as the changes in the light and the wind even when we stare at the computer “all day long”. In much of America and Europe, today there will be over 15 hours of daylight (unless you live in the southern hemisphere). Up in Canada and Scandinavia, the sun will hardly set at all. They will be able to see the sun and moon in the sky at the same time. Summer Solstice happens around the 21st each June, but can be on the 20th or 22nd.
At Stonehenge, on the Solstice, the rising sun shines directly on the altar in the center, which it doesn’t at other times of the year. Having the Sun (solar masculine energy) at it’s peak at the same time as the full Moon (lunar feminine energy) is a sign of profound spiritual balance of energies.
The June full moon is called Strawberry Moon, because it’s time for the strawberry harvest. It’s called the Rose Moon, because roses bloom in June; it’s called the Honey moon because of the angle of the earth, the moon rides lower and takes on an amber color, (the sun’s arc appears correspondingly higher in sky). It’s called the Hot Moon for the obvious reason.
Remember to charge your crystals today, and do workings that require catching the flow at it’s fullness.

The Tarot reminds us of the balance we need to find, fairness in business, in love, in risk taking, in finances… in everything. We cannot maintain balance in our lives if we over-commit in any area.
