2016 Summer Solstice Full Moon



The Strawberry Rose Moon arrives with the Summer Solstice this June 2016, and it is spectacular. We are looking forward to approximately 15 hours of sunshine (partially sunny in the Chicagoland area) and a Full Moon at approximately 6am (CST). The Sun and Moon will have their usual dance, kissing in the sky day and night. I think it would do us well to follow their example. Enjoy the company of friends and loved ones, spread the love and affection – more on that later. For now, let’s take a look at the cards:

((The Steampunk Tarot, Moore and Fell))

The cards speak of contentedness, secrets revealed, new ideas, feelings of loss, and power to calmly manage situations as they arise. Sounds like summertime! Our schedules change for kids out of school, free time scheduled, vacations planned, time away strongly desired – there is fun to be had with family and friends! Of course, there will also be arguments, extra laundry, more expenses than anticipated, and piles of work (mail, files, bills, etc) waiting for your return. Everything is manageable, you can handle it – it’s just summertime.


As you make plans to enjoy the summer, keep in mind it is also a good time to bless your home for peace, health, and abundance.

Perhaps try this simple spell: Place in four jars, equal parts lavender, sage, sea salt and white rice; no particular jar size or  order of ingredients is required. If your wish to leave the ingredients in layers or shake them to blend, your choice. Place one jar in each of the four corners of your home – north, south, east, west – and as you do so, invoke the blessing of the Divine Power (deity of your choice, as you believe) to renew, refresh and bless your home with positive energy, peace and prosperity. Be sure to include please and thank you – your gratitude goes a long way.


Lemons and limes bring summer energy into your home; bowls of citrus on tables, freshly-made pitches of iced ade for drinking, fresh-squeezed juice on veggies or grilled fish. This tasty touch of sunshine will likely brighten your mood and boost your immune system.

Strawberries and roses are in season this Full Moon, and we welcome their flavors and fragrances into our homes, diets and picnic baskets as summertime specialties as well. Share them with friends, family, and loved ones for increased feelings of joy and togetherness.

Who doesn’t love strawberry shortcake?

Summer is here and the time is right – have fun!!!
