Meaning and Origin

The name "Strawberry Moon" originates from Native American tribes who associated it with the short strawberry harvesting season. In Europe, it is also referred to as the "Honey Moon," tied to the time when honey is typically gathered in late June. This term may have also influenced the tradition of holding weddings in June, known as the honeymoon period. Additionally, other tribes named it the Birth Moon, Egg Laying Moon, or Hatching Moon, all symbolizing new beginnings.

Rare Occurrence

The alignment of a full moon with the summer solstice is a rare occurrence, and this year's Strawberry Moon is even more exceptional as it coincides with the summer solstice, making it the lowest full moon of the year and giving it a golden hue rather than the expected red. The solstice itself is the earliest in 228 years, making June 21, 2024, an intriguing day for skywatchers and enthusiasts of celestial events.
