Hence you all are curious to know about Strawberry Moon. Why did people call in Strawberry Moon? When will it appear in 2023? Keep reading on:
What do you mean by the Strawberry Moon?
Though all thought that Strawberry Moon is called because of the redness inside it and full moon implies the weather. NASA said that it is called the Strawberry Moon because of some Native American tribes like Algonquin, Ojibwe, Lakota, and Dakota.
Some people said that because this is the season of strawberry ripens so it is called the strawberry moon. The Strawberry Moon is also known as the Honey Moon, the Celtic name of the Rose Moon, and the Anglo-Saxan name of the Mead Moon. Mead moon because it was the time when meads moved. You all are aware of all moon’s logical names like Wolf Moon in January, and Blue Moon in August.
When Does the Strawberry Moon Appear in the UK?
Royal Observatory, Greenwich stated that the moon will be on its high peak at 4:41 am on June 4 in the UK. Though you can watch it overnight before sunrise. But you can not call it a super moon, because a super moon will come when the sun is nearing its orbit to Earth. At the time of the supermoon, it will appear bright and large. August 1, Aturgone Moon may be a supermoon.

How Does the Strawberry Moon Affect Humans?
Astrologist Molly Pennington PhD gave a statement regarding the effect of the Strawberry Moon on our behaviour.
“This Strawberry Moon is in the fire sign of Sagittarius, so it represents a time of optimistic possibility. It signals the beginning of the summer season so there’s a quality of having a clean slate before you plan and experience time in the sun to come. There could be an urge to travel or plan travel and a tendency to feel extravagant about it.”
So, when you find yourself a luxe trip, then do not take it seriously. She adds,
“The Sun and Moon are opposite each other during a Full Moon, and while every June Strawberry Moon will represent a time of dreamy change and a thirst for fancy and flings, each one is also contingent on the planetary configurations in the current sky.”
You have to know that the moon and son both close to Mars in fiery Leo, This Moon could make a fox feel like jumping into adventure or throwing caution to the wind. There could be an urge to jump on stage and grab the spotlight or a particular craving for positive attention.
With Chiron, the wounded healer, in the third fire sign, Aries, there is a sense of vulnerability or a possibility to heal old wounds, perhaps around self-esteem. While Sagittarius Moons would be known for travel, curiosity, action, and interest, Saturn is also in aspect, which could bring a sense of responsibility around any actions of that nature.
