Dear Friends, this week’s Full Moon on Friday June 9, 2017, is a MICROMOON. ‘What’s a Micromoon?’ you might be wondering. Well, it is basically the opposite of a Supermoon: it’s the farthest moon and thereby the smallest Full Moon of the year (it is also called a ‘Minimoon’).
This month’s Micro Full Moon lies about 30,000 miles (48,000 km) farther away from Earth than did the new moon supermoon of May 25, 2017.
Nevertheless, this extra distance from us will not make this Full Moon’s energy any milder. At the Full Moon, the energy is powerful and intense. This increase in energy enables us to take action – especially in regards to the New Moon intentions you may have made two weeks prior.
This week is the perfect time for making space in your life, for releasing something that no longer serves you, for letting go of something that you no longer need. It’s an opportunity to let go of an aspect of yourself that you have outgrown.
On this Micro Full Moon get ready to be transformed at a very deep level, we will all be undergoing a process of metamorphosis. We are shedding old skins and revealing our shiny and more colorful new Self.
For some of you this process will feel quite bumpy with a few extra ‘micro-crises’ in between. The shedding of the old will feel like a true cathartic experience. Remember to be compassionate with yourself.
On the other hand, the process triggered by this week’s Micro Full Moon energy will be extremely healing since we are being pushed into alignment with our true Self. This will allow us to tend to old emotional wounds that have been kept in the shadows for many years.
‘The Serpent Charmer’ Stars
This particular Micro Full Moon will take place in the constellation of Ophiuchus (in the sign of Sagittarius). The Greek name Ophiuchus refers to the ‘Serpent Charmer’ or ‘Snake Holder’. The energy emanating from this star configuration will be bringing passion, bravery, and a compassionate heart to this Micro Full Moon.
According to Greek mythology, “when Ophiuchus encircled by the serpent’s great coils rises, he renders the forms of snakes innocuous to those born under him”, or to those under his energetic influence on Earth. The serpent is seen struggling vainly in the powerful grasp of man.
The taming of the snake symbolizes our ability to transform our fears into wisdom, our wounds into comfort, our shadows into light. As the energy emitted by the Serpent Charmer passes through the Full Moon on June 9, the Earth will be showered by this amazing transformative energy.
However, taming and transmuting our outdated fears first requires that we acknowledge the situations and relationships that are no longer aligned with our heart’s truth.
This could lead to emotional strains within ourselves which will be evidenced in many areas of our life: in business, romance, career, and at home. But fear not! these crises are all part of the transformative life-changing process of letting go of outmoded aspects of yourself. You can’t live in the past, it’s time to move on.
This is a Full Moon for transformation and healing.
The Serpent Charmer is also known to be the ruler of the natural aspects of medicine. For this reason, this Micro Full Moon is a wonderful time for engaging in alternative and complementary holistic healing methods.
Energy healing, herbology, aromatherapy, acupuncture, and other natural non-invasive methods will be quite beneficial for those being affected by this week’s Full Moon energies.
This month’s Micro Full Moon is called the ‘strawberry moon’, a name given by the North American Algonquin tribes as a signal to gather ripening fruit. In other parts of the world, the June Full Moon is also known as the ‘rose moon’ or the ‘honey moon’.
Here are a few steps you might want to take to relieve some of the Full Moon sensitivity symtpoms in case the energies become too strong for you:
On June 9, 2017, bask under the Micro Full Moonlight and let it wash away your old skin and emotional loads so that past wounds can be healed. You will feel lighter, refreshed, and ready to welcome new possibilities into your life.
May the energy of this metamorphic Micro Full Moon give you the compassion and strength to lovingly release yourself from your cocoon and heal your dazzling butterfly wings.
