What Is a Strawberry Moon and Why Is It Named That?

In astrology, each monthly full moon aligns with one of nature's natural rhythms and is named to reflect that energy. June's full moon is known as the Strawberry Moon because it coincides with the harvest of this sweet summer fruit. Some believe the Strawberry Moon gets its name from the deep red hue it sometimes takes on due to how sunlight reflects off the moon. However, this vibrant color is a rare and beautiful side effect of a natural lunar phenomenon, and the Strawberry Moon isn't always pink or red. Other names for June's full moon are the Honey Moon or the Rose Moon, each associated with peak seasonal blooms and harvests at the start of summer. Whatever you call it, the vibe is sweet!
