There’s a full moon rising on Tuesday June 14th and it’s set to be one of the most significant lunar events of 2022.
Gaze into the moon and see what Fate has in store for you!
The moon rules over the subtle, subconscious and intuitive aspects of the self and its wax and wane reflect our own moods and abilities. When we align ourselves with the moon’s power, we’re tapping into an ancient energy current.
The Strawberry Supermoon in Sagittarius of 2022 has the power to lend huge transformative power during the three days it is full, especially to anyone focused on new beginnings and moving on from the past.
The first full moon of Summer is always called a Strawberry moon, as this is when the strawberries are turning red.
The Tarot card that represents Sagittarius is Temperance. The gentle process of tempering is about finding a perfect middle state, combining the best of all things to forge something that is stronger than the sum of its parts.
If you have had traumatic experiences in the past, now is the time, not to forget them, but to use them to create a new and more powerful, calm and effective you.
Tuesday 14th will be a perfect night for moon-gazing, moon-bathing, making moon-water (or moon-gin)and generally mooning around.
Try writing a diary entry or letter to yourself where you describe your wishes as if they have already happened – this will give a clear shape to your desires, and help them to manifest with the aid of the Moon goddess Selene.
Burn the letter in the light of the moon or better still, fold it up very small and attach it to the tube of a rocket that you send up at night.
Read on to find your own personal horoscope for the coming period under the auspices of the Strawberry Supermoon.
What does the Super Strawberry Moon mean for YOU on June 14th?
Aries (March 21–April 19): If you have a few unfinished projects hanging around, this is the time to complete them. This is a perfect time for new beginnings. Wear or carry yellow crystals for protection. Cairngorms are lucky for you, and you can buy them cheaply on eBay.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) : This is a powerful time for you personally. If you have the opportunity to invest in a project, do it now. Wearing gold jewelry or the colour blue will boost your good luck. Avoid the colour red, as it has negative connotations with the past.
Gemini (May 21-June 20): Forget old friends. This is a time when you should be making new beginnings. Unfollow, unfriend, get rid of those negative relationships. Clear out your social media. The colour green is bad luck for you right now, so avoid it for the next week.
Cancer (June 21-July 22): Concentrate on the positive, clear your mind of the negative. Wear the colour green for luck. This is a great time to look for a different role at work. Beware unsteady platforms, you may injure yourself. Snakes are lucky for you – wear a snake bracelet or get a snake tattoo.
Leo (July 23-August 22): Romance is close to home this month. You should not hold back feelings at this time. Birds are especially lucky for you this week, apart from black birds, so kiss your hand to any black birds you see, in case they are more than they seem. Beware of injuries to your head or hands- be careful when cooking.
Virgo (August 23-September 22): Pick a new look this month. Try a new hairstyle or hair colour – people will like it! The colour purple is lucky for you. Make a new friendship, it will work out well.
Libra (September 23-October 22): You may have had a hard start to the year, but things will look up now. If you have been ill, don’t worry. You will feel stronger and brighter now. Wear white for good luck. If you see a white feather, pick it up and keep it close to you as a lucky token.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21): If you have a crush on someone you are working with, make your move now. This is an optimum time for you to make a fresh start. Rose quartz is lucky for you this month. Don’t get bogged down by the people who depend on you, they will make their own path, which you cannot control.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21): This is not the time for you to make any big changes. Look close to home for what you need. Wear red for good luck, and pay attention to your dreams – take notes every morning when you wake up and study them later. They will give you the signs you need to make a fresh start later in the year. What you are looking for may be closer than you think.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19): Look after yourself in the next month. Somebody close to you is working against you in order to further their own cause. Wear pink for luck and be alert for messages on social media – they will reveal your enemy. Somebody from your past will cross paths with you soon – they are trustworthy.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18): Surround yourself with green plants and white flowers for protection at this time – your main enemy has themselves been hurt badly this year. They are defensive now and may attack- but if you calmly wait it out, they will be removed from your immediate sphere and discover their own negative fate without your involvement.
Pisces (February 19-March 20): You may have had a difficult start to the year, but your problems at home are shortly going to resolve themselves in an unexpected way. Wear or carry white crystals to help purify your home, and burn beeswax candles to encourage a fresh start. Better days are coming.
To kick-start your new beginning, make a blue pea tea cocktail or a gin and tonic using Sharish Blue Magic gin. If you can’t find this brand, look around.
Just yesterday I saw a colour-changing gin on the shelves at Lidl by the self-serve tills, which suggests that it is becoming quite commonplace.
The brand of gin has no significance – as long as you infuse it to become moon-gin, it will have the required effect.
Full Moon G&T
1 shot Sharish Blue Magic gin

The key thing when making this drink is to leave the gin and tonic out in the moonlight overnight before use.
Moon infusing has been covered on this blog before now, so do check here or here to discover the method.
And bear in mind – you can moon-infuse during a full moon or a gibbous moon when the Moon is almost full.
But never try this during an eclipse or when the moon is on the wane, as it will weaken or reverse the effect.
For full power, drink this in the light of the moon and raise your glass before drinking.
On Drinking Alone by Moonlight
Here are flowers and here is wine,
But where’s a friend with me to join
Hand in hand and heart to heart
In one full cup before we part?
Rather than to drink alone,
I’ll make bold to ask the moon
To condescend to lend her face
The hour and the scene to grace.
Lo, she answers, and she brings
My shadow on her silver wings;
That makes three, and we shall be.
I ween, a merry company
The modest moon declines the cup,
But shadow promptly takes it up,
And when I dance my shadow fleet
Keeps measure with my flying feet.
But though the moon declines to tipple
She dances in yon shining ripple,
And when I sing, my festive song,
The echoes of the moon prolong.
Say, when shall we next meet together?
Surely not in cloudy weather,
For you my boon companions dear
Come only when the sky is clear.
