Strong Sun Moon

I'm posting this early since I won't be able to log on around the 4th.

The phase of the Full Moon lasts for 3 days. The day before, day of, and day after. Full Moons are associated with the mother aspect of the goddess and is considered a time of completion.

The Full Moon of June is known as the Strong Sun Moon. This is the perfect name for the moon we see in the first month of Summer. It is also known as the Lover's Moon, Full Strawberry Moon, The Honey Moon, and The Rose Moon. During last month's full moon we did some divination to make sure we were on the correct course. Take some the time during this Full Moon to maintain and enhance the things you already have. It's easy to lose sight of the things we already possess when we're focused on new accomplishments.

~ As the honey moon glows in the midsummer nights, June brings us the love of Ishtar. Queen of Heaven, River of Life, Creator of People are among her myriad titles. She is a goddess of love, of strategy, and of battle. Hailed as the Kingmaker she was the sovereign of Babylon. Most often depicted in the breast-offering pose accompanied by the maxim "The fate of everything she holds in her hands," Ishtar's presence reminds us that bringing forth new life is but one of the many gifts of the goddess. Nurturing and feeding that life so that it can flourish is her true power. Her breasts hold the fate of humanity, and her power is yours. Let Ishtar inspire you to nourish your gifts and talents and those of others as well. Take the sweet honey that is her lover and let it radiate outward like her river of life, the river of milk that flows freely from her generous breast. Drink deep from the chalice of her moonlight and let this fierce goddess of love and strength be your guardian. ~
