    Tomorrow is the full moon for June.....It's the Strawberry moon or The Strong Sun Moon...
    This Month's Full Moon Might Be A Shock To Your System
    SARA COUGHLIN
    JUNE 6, 2017, 1:30 PM.
    June's full moon, known as both the Strawberry Full Moon and the Strong Sun Moon, will reach its peak this Friday, June 9, at 9:10 a.m. EST. After the May full moon, which urged us to practice caution, this month's full moon will imbue us with a renewed sense of energy and purpose.
    As the summer solstice approaches, the days get longer and the urge to make the most of all that extra sunlight rises. In fact, even this month's full moon celebrations revolve around our daylight hours: Whether you perform a full moon ritual or simply hang out with friends on the patio, you're encouraged to spend the whole day of the Strong Sun Moon in nature, embracing the sun and its fiery energy.
    If you can't make it to the great outdoors this Friday, you can still channel the sun in your personal life. Show yourself and those around you some warmth and affection — a little care goes a long way and will pay off when you return to your tasks feeling renewed and ready to go.
    According to the Astrotwins, there's yet another reason to kick your life into high gear now. This year, the June full moon is in Sagittarius, a sign known for its playful energy. With the Strong Sun Moon occurring in a fire sign, you'll be full of vim and vigor, just in time for the summer season to begin. Ignore anyone who wants to dull your shine and proceed with your plans at full speed. After treading lightly through May's full moon, it'll be freeing to feel a little reckless.
    For those of you who checked out at the word "reckless," have no fear: This month's full moon doesn't have to be a free pass to act rashly. More accurately, it's the nudge some of us might need if we've been holding back in an area of our lives. Under Friday's full moon, it may feel more natural for you to ask your manager those tough questions or tell your partner what you really want in bed (the full moon does have a pretty sensual reputation).
    Whether you spend the June full moon on a hike or between the sheets, don't overthink your plans. Let your energy — and fiery desires — guide you.

    The Holly King and Oak King

    The Wiccan God is the Lord of the Greenwood, consort to the Lady of the Greenwood. Known also as Cernunnos, the Green Man, Herne the Hunter, and Lord of the Wild Hunt, he is a god of fertility, growth, death, and rebirth.

    Two God-themes figure predominantly in Wiccan Sabbats: the Sun-God theme and that of the Holly King and Oak King.

    The Sun-God rules the seasons. At Yule, he is the new babe, the emodiment of innocence and joy. He represents the infancy of the returning light. At Imolg, his growth is celebrated, as the days are growing longer and light stronger. At Ostara, he is a green, flourishing youth whose eye is taken by the Maiden Goddess. On Beltane, he is the young man in love who takes the Goddess as his bride. Their consummated marriage is celebrated with maypoles and bonfires. At Midsummer, he comsummates his marriage in a union so complete that it becomes a death. He is mourned at Lammas, and at Mabon, he sleeps in the womb of the Goddess. At Samhain, he waits in the Shining Land to be reborn.

    The symbolism of the Horned God is also played out the theme of the Holly King and Oak King. The Horned God is the Holly King and the Oak King, two twin gods seen as one complete entity.
    Each of the twin gods rule for half of a year, fights for the favor of the Goddess, and dies. But the defeated twin is not truly dead, he merely withdraws for six months, some say to Caer Arianrhod, the Castle of the ever-turning Silver Wheel, which is also known as the Wheel of the Stars. This is the enchanted realm of the Goddess Arianrhod where the god must wait and learn before being born again. Arianrhod means "silver wheel" and the castle is the Aurora Borealis. She is the goddess of the astral skies and there she rules as goddess of reincarnation.​

    The golden Oak King, who is the light twin, rules from midwinter to midsummer. The darksome Holly King rules the dark half of the year from Midsummer to Midwinter.

    Do you celebrate your birthday by giving your parents allegiance....or presents....or even a congratulations when you turn 21?

    What do birthdays have to do with anything? It's not important when you were born, but that you were born.
