Today, June 13th, 2014 is auspicious for a few reasons. First, to the chagrin of many paraskevidekatriaphobics out there, today is Friday the 13th. As if that wasn't enough to bring out all of the loony behavior in the best of us, at 12:11 AM here on the East Coast, we experienced a Full Moon. Since we are in the month of June, this month's Full Moon, according to legend and the Farmers Almanac is The Strawberry Moon.
"This name was universal to every Algonquin tribe. However, in Europe they called it the Rose Moon. Also because the relatively short season for harvesting strawberries comes each year during the month of June . . . so the full Moon that occurs during that month was christened for the strawberry!" - Farmer’s Almanac
And to add a third item to the mix, this is the first Friday the 13th Full Moon in June since 1919. We will not experience another Full Moon on Friday the 13th in June until the year 2098!
So what does this mean for all of us? According to the website, Chakrology, we should be thinking about the following for this day's Full Moon:
The ideal thoughts for this Moon is reconciling the desire for exploration with the comfort of knowledge and information. Learning new things, exploring a new place, or growing beyond your comfort levels is the goal behind the energy of this moon. It challenges knowledge for the unknown. Tackle new ideas, discuss opposing viewpoints, or challenge yourself to learn something you previously found that you did not agree with. It is a good time to learn to be open to new experiences rather than over analyze old ones.
For all of you crystal healers and lovers out there, it is also a wonderful time to re-charge and re-energize your crystals with the light, beauty, essence and energy of The Universe and Mother Nature in its purest form. So get those crystals on your window sill, sit back, and allow the unknown to happen!
