Your Guide to the upcoming Astrological dates this month •
Reading Time: 4-5 mins

Featuring: a full Moon in Sagittarius, flowing into World Oceans Day, a New Moon in Gemini, and the pagan festivals in our Wheel of the Year -> Litha (Summer Solstice) and Yule (Winter Solstice) before entering Cancer Season.

We draw inspiration from the stars for you, bringing you a soft conversation each month about what the cosmos may have aligned for you and the collective. If the concepts resonate, delve a little more into it; if our words bounce back and sound too mysterious, let them go Beautiful Seeker (no offence to us!).

Our overview this month is inspired by exceptional sky-readers, primarily our very own Founder Britta and her channelled Celestial Journal, and by the divine Cafe Astrology.

June 3, 2023: Full Moon in Sagittarius { Strawberry Moon }

“Ruled by Jupiter — an abundant energy — Sagittarius brings about a Strawberry Moon full of adventurous energy eager to expand. The Sagittarian chases wisdom, never sitting still, always hungry to explore, says AstroStyle, uplifting this free-spirited fire sign as a mutable one with a positive open mind. The archer brings a directness that demands freedom and doesn't shy away easily.” extract from St Soleil Celestial Journal.

In the context of the June 2023 full moon — as we are perched on the edge of either a new beginning or cathartic finale — Sagittarius shoots us out of the spring season/energy with the vigor to push forward. This lunar transit lifts apprehension and imparts a feeling of readiness. Spring or Autumn, continue on in your endeavors with renewed vitality. But don't hesitate because this encouraging energy may be as brief as the strawberry season - after which the June full moon is named.

Note: this is finally a Full Moon out of Eclipse Season! But beware: with its planetary ruler Jupiter, your moral compass might be challenged...

June 8, 2023: World Oceans Day

This month on Earth reveals itself to be a alchemy of the Fire element with Sagittarius in the skies, balanced with Watery qualities brought by the merging with Cancer Season.
On World Oceans Day, our invitation is to offer a prayer to the waters that compose and surround us...:

“O mother ocean, welcome me in your arms, bathe me in your waves,
and keep me safe so that I may return to land once more.
Your tides move with the pull of the moon,
as do my own cycles.
I am drawn to you,
and honor you under the sun’s fiery gaze.”

June 17, 2023: New Moon in Gemini

“The New Moon in Gemini cycle presents opportunities to commit to personal goals that express the positive energies of the sign of the Twins. It’s time to improve our communication skills by listening to others and enjoying others’ points of view, rather than doggedly seeking to f ind that one elusive “answer.” St Soleil Celestial Journal.

This is a good cycle in which to re-evaluate our communication and social skills by questioning just how much we actually take in information and communicate in a friendly, non-threatening manner. With this potent Gemini energy, we have the chance to make important changes in our lives.
This lunation forms a square to Neptune, and some disillusionments are likely before we embark on a new path. We can be wrestling with perceptions and expectations. It’s hard to see our direction, but our discomfort with the past can be very real now, motivating new beginnings.


June 20-21 , 2023: Litha & Yule  

NH*: Litha - Summer Solstice
“The Summer Solstice celebration marks the longest day and shortest night of the year and is the most powerful day of the year for the Sun God. Because this Sabbat glorifies the Sun God and the Sun, f ire plays a very prominent role in this festival. The element of Fire is the most easily seen and immediately felt element of transformation. It can burn, consume, cook, shed light or purify and bale fires still figure prominently at modern Midsummer rites..” More, much more in our Celestial Journal

June 21, 2023: Entering Cancer Season

“The sun in Cancer will affect your imagination, sensitivity, and need for security. This transit makes us into dreamers, makes us more romantic, more inspired, and focuses particularly on the home and family.” St Soleil Celestial Journal.

Here she is, flowing like honey down a riverbed, the Feminine aspect of energy: watery, powerful yet calm and centered, reflecting the rainbow light of our emotions, the vibration of feelings, all transcended through a strong sense of intuition.

June 30, 2023: Neptune enters Retrograde

“When Neptune is in retrograde, it’s time to face the music and get a reality check. It illuminates the truths that are hard to hear, and the reality of this might be painful but it’s a necessary one. It’s the ideal time for spiritual development..” St Soleil Celestial Journal.
