Native American Strawberry Moon ~ June 23, 2013
The next Full Moon will be June 23, 2013. The Wabanki, people of the Dawn (most commonly known as the Algonquin tribes) knew the Full Moon in June, which they called the Strawberry Moon, as a time to gather ripening strawberries. It is also known as the Rose Moon and the Hot Moon.
Your Native American moon sign is reflective. Because we are dealing with attributes of the moon, the personality type shared below, for people born in June – Month of the Strawberry Moon, will speak to your shadow self.
Most astrological zodiacs are based on sun signs (the position of the sun at your birth). Sun signs describe how you appear to the world (it fits with the metaphor of the visible sun radiating brightly for all to see upon the earth).
The moon signs are a metaphor – they express shadows, motion, change and soft illuminations of the personality – just like the moon.
Moreover, if you do not see yourself (your personality) in this Native American moon sign for June, that might not be unusual. Typically, moon sign personality types can hide within us, and need the light of our attention in order to shine brightly out of our shadows (again, just like the moon needs the light of the sun to be seen).
Your Native American moon sign can be determined according to the month in which you were born. Each month experiences one full moon (sometimes two). That full moon within the month you were born expresses certain aspects of your personality. Read your personality type within the month you were born – it will convey unique illumination about yourself.
