In June, the full Sagittarius moon coincides with the year’s only occurrence of Friday the 13th. The Sun will be in Gemini, and four planets — Mercury, Saturn, Pluto, and Neptune — will be in retrograde. Expect magic and the unexpected.
Be sure to complete all projects, especially those with a high risk factor, before the moon enters Capricorn and meets up with Pluto.
This moon lends itself to two types of magic:
Fridays belong to Venus, the Goddess of Love. One name for the June Full Moon is the Rose Moon, and roses are a potent addition to any love magic. Coat a pink candle in virgin olive oil and the petals from a freshly picked pink rose (or red rose if you desire a more passionate love). As you light the candle, tell the Universe your heart is open to a new love relationship and recite the qualities you value in a mate. Ask Mother Moon to aid you in your quest.
Death is the 13th card in the major arcana. Despite its often macabre appearance, the Death card symbolizes new beginnings. Place the Death card on your personal altar where it will receive direct or indirect (through a window) moonlight. (Or sit in the moonlight while holding the Death card.) Meditate on what new beginning you would like to foster, and what you may need to release in order to start anew.
