Enjoy these excerpts from the chapter on June: The Strawberry Moon

As the berries of the field ripen into their fullness, the Strawberry Moon shines its light above them. June’s full moon is also known as the Rose Moon, the Mead Moon, the Dyad Moon, or the Hot Moon.

The Strawberry Moon tarot spreads included in this chapter explore what is ripe and ready for the picking, where there is sweetness that is yet undiscovered, what new deliciousness can be created, how to find relief in sticky situations, and what would benefit from pruning.

The spells and rituals in this chapter include drawing in positive circumstances, amplifying the sweetness in life, and creating a good luck talisman.
