June Full Moon Explained
I've said it once and I'll say it again, Witches love full moons! The June full moon, known as the Strawberry Moon, typically is the last full moon between the spring and summer, it's right before the summer equinox and the apex of summer. While the May full moon, the flower moon represents the flowers blooming everywhere, this full moon represents the time where we may start seeing early harvests.
I like to think of this time as a time of fine tuning, of refinement. Since these moons are based on the Farmers Almanac and harvesting cycles, let's reference a tomato plant. Right now, this plant may not be fully mature, but the flowers may have turned into tiny unripened tomatoes. When growing crops, sometimes we need to prune our growing plants in order to preserve energy.
Sometimes we will see little sproutlings at the bottom of the tomato plant beginning to branch out and grow. While at first glance, it may be exciting to see even more vitality emerge from a single plant, it's often recommended that we cut out the excess as it actually takes away from the growth of the plant.

June Full Moon and Tarot
Divination and Full Moons go hand-in-hand. This moon has a lot of seven of cups energy, the person on the card is faced with a lot of choices, all seem rich and filled with opportunity, but can only choose one that's the best suited for them and what's best suited for their present circumstance. Saying no to excess is not a bad thing at this time.

As promising as the possibilities of a a multi-branching tomato plant is, the extra branches takes away energy from the main plant, and will actually inhibit the overall growth of the plant, stalling the size and production of this plant. This doesn't mean to completely hull the plant, but this moon encourages us to be mindful to focus on what's in front of us and not getting caught up in the possibilities (good or bad).
When releasing during this full moon, it's important to examine your life and aspirations. Are you taking on too many projects right now? Are you a bit greedy? Can you handle the load that's in front of you or will you be taking away energy from more important avenues of life. How's your mental load? Are you stuck in the endless anxiety loop of "what ifs?".
June Full Moon Releasing Spell
If you're stuck on how to release these aspects of your life, try out this quick working me and my coven did during the May moon cycle:
Light a bonfire (or light something on fire over a cauldron), and throw into the bonfire a physical representation of what you are trying to release, and say:
"Into this smoke,
All of the energies that do not serve me
All of the negativity that surrounds me,
and all of the fears that limit me,

Nuture and cultivate what's in front of you instead of focusing on what can be, be happy with what you've got. This full moon is a great time to illuminate what you have, what's right in front of you, and what you've been working on, right now is not the time to take on new projects. Focus on your aspirations, and release the clutter and the excess, focus on what's in front of you and don't get distracted.
