A Strawberry Moon floats above the Pacific Ocean in Malibu, California, on the 2016 Summer Solstice, the longest day of the year. 

This aspect of

the Lunar Moon Goddess

doesn’t mess around.

She’s wants you

to remember her name.

This year, for the first time in nearly 50 years, the full Strawberry Moon connected with the Summer Solstice, a once-in-a-generation astrological event.  

And the last time she made an appearance was during 1967’s “Summer of Love”!  

This special moon’s beauty is fleeting, and it says “catch me if you can!”. Its bright, red color only lasts a few minutes before it turns pale pink and, eventually, back to its usual bright white color.  

It’s thought that the name “Strawberry Moon” was given by Native Americans because it arrived during the height of strawberry picking season. In Europe, it is known as the “Rose Moon”.

As the giant, red moon began to rise up from the horizon in Malibu, I could hear a collective gasp of “wows!”.  It was truly a sight to behold.

I would describe it as big, red apple floating in the sky — and I classify it to be one of the most memorable and beautiful moon’s I’ve ever seen.
