June Full Moon - Strong Sun Moon

June's Full Moon is called the Strong Sun Moon, Moon of Horses, Lovers' Moon, Honey Moon, Aerra Litha (Before Litha), Brachmanoth (Break Month), Strawberry Moon, Rose Moon, or Moon of Making Fat.  It was the Festival of Edfu for Hathor in Egypt, and on the New Moonher image made it's journey over the water to Edfu to the temple of Horus, celebrating the sexual union of the two.  The Summer Solstice also happens in June in the Northern Hemisphere, in the Southern Hemisphere the Winter Solstice is celebrated.  In some magickal traditions this is the time when the Goddess weds the God.

This is a good time for magick, and working with all the elements, as pyschic energy flows freely under this moon. It also is a time for maintaining and enhancing what we already have, such as our jobs, education, relationships with friends and family, and our gardens.
