Full Strawberry Moon
By Tara Sutphen
The Full Strawberry Moon at 4* Capricorn will culminate June 26, 2010 1:31 am pdt/4:31am edt (almanac). There will also be a Partial Lunar Eclipse. This is when the moon will cross through the southern portion of Earth’s shadow and will be visible to those in western and central North America. The Umbral shadow will cover 54 percent of the moon’s surface. Eclipse’s are about change or letting go, it can be to bring something exciting or illuminating into your life. Especially true this month as there is extra ‘jet fuel’ coming from Pluto. When we have such big events happening in the sky, it might stir up not only our personal worlds but the planet itself. It could be a time to joggle us awake.
The meaning of this full moon is about our homes, places we conduct business and how we offer ourselves to the betterment of mankind. You don’t have to do major things in the world to help out, it’s the little things that sometimes matter, the support we receive close to home. What are your giving traits, spiritually, emotionally and physically. As earthlings we act in our self interest. Healthy self interest that flow into talents, ideas, and service allows a person to have something to share. We see when people go overboard with being greedy, jealous, hateful or angry. Why does this happen? Where is the perspective to keep it real. And what is real? If we look into the sky, and stretch our minds eye to go farther out away from the world into space and now past our solar system and turn ourselves around to look back at earth. Where are we? What are we? We are a human speckle. We deem ourselves as important speckles on missions. As a speck we want to create something worthwhile for ourselves. At our end, we’ll have wanted to share a few hugs and helped do a little something here or there. We know we’re exceptional. What makes for a meaningful life? What is your mission?

What do you feel is your mission?
Selfless actions and thoughts actually bring a person more satisfaction and contentment. Sometimes we aren’t acknowledged or feel appreciated. At least your effort was for the right reasons to bring something good to another. You will give many times and it won’t be returned from the same source. You may crave the same sentimental attitude that you offered to another. Or what was given would be returned in an even exchange. But that is not truly giving, that would be manipulating. In your heart and minds eye, visualize your open hands to receive. Staying accessible in mind, heart and body will bring many rewards. Seek emotional simplicity and value. Your true mission will soon be clear.
He was no martyr. He was no hero. But in the last two years, selfishness gave way to selflessness, lies gave way to truth and indulgence gave way to spirituality, and anyone watching that couldn’t help but be moved by it.”- Lex Lasry
