The Magick of the Strawberry Moon

Jun 21, 2024 | Blog

Join us as we embrace the Strawberry Moon, a celestial event named after the ripe strawberries harvested during this time of year. While it officially graces our skies on 21 June 2024, it will be most visible on 22 June 2024 Also known as the Rose Moon or the Honey Moon, the Strawberry Moon holds deep cultural significance, especially among Native American Algonquin tribes who named this moon to mark the strawberry harvest.
