What is the Full Strawberry Moon?
You’re probably aware that there are several phases of the moon, but it never hurts to get a little astronomy refresher. During the full moon, the entire moon is lit up, so it looks like one big ball in the sky.
This full moon is called a "Strawberry Moon" (or Honey Moon, Mead Moon, or Full Rose Moon, depending on where you’re from) which has zero to do with its color or making strawberry-covered meteorites or anything (sorry, I don't make the rules).
Instead, its name comes from the Algonquin tribes in eastern North America who saw the full moon as a signal to gather the wild strawberries that ripened around this time, according to the Farmer’s Almanac.
How will the Full Strawberry Moon in Sagittarius impact your sign?
This full moon is all about dreaming big. "It’s really about making the impossible possible," Page says. "Put aside all the naysayers that say you can’t do this or that."
During this time, you’ll find yourself dreaming about all the places you want to go and the things you want to do. Basically, it's time to book that trip to Tahiti you've been fantasising about since, like, forever.
At the same time, you’ll reevaluate any long-held beliefs about your capabilities (or lack thereof). "This full moon is about believing in yourself first, but also examining whether any personal beliefs are holding you back," Page says. Maybe you’ll realise there’s no reason why you shouldn’t take that extra challenging dance class, or that you totally should apply for that job that’s a step up for you.
On the relationship front, be aware that some intense discussions may lead to arguments—especially if you feel like other people are trying to manipulate you into doing things you don’t want to do.
The Full Strawberry Moon in Sagittarius will affect all signs, but Page says Sagittarius, Gemini, Virgo, and Pisces will feel it the most.
What does the Full Strawberry Moon in Sagittarius mean for your future?
Making dreams a reality is a BFD now, but it can also impact your life going forward. Maybe you’ll pack up and move across the country, or finally have the guts to make that career change you’ve been thinking about for years. Or maybe it'll be as seemingly minor as getting up the nerve to finally go parasailing (which, depending on how you feel about heights, might not be that minor).
The full moon can also give you a huge boost in the self-confidence department, which can definitely change the way you interact with people from here on out.
Bottom line: A lot of really cool stuff can come out of this full moon for you—so don’t hesitate to dream big.
