Strawberry Moon Spiritual Meaning

The Strawberry Moon symbolizes the fullness of success, the depth of lifelong dreams, and the invisible forces that guide us towards our destiny.

While early spring moons are best for deciding what you want, the Strawberry Moon is for going after it.

This moon is also an ideal time for love spells and attraction magic.  Along with Beltane and Valentine’s, the month of June is considered among the most optimal times of the year for love spells. 

(There’s a reason Shakespeare chose the Summer Solstice as the backdrop for his romantic comedy, A Midsummer Night’s Dream!)

Magical Correspondences

In kitchen witchery, understanding the magical correspondences of the key ingredients helps to foster their mindful use.

This recipe focuses on the manifestation of goals and powerful intentions.

Strawberries

Of course, it probably goes without saying that the strawberries in this recipe symbolize the Strawberry Moon.

But also, strawberries represent the power of solar magic at this time of year.

Their red color embodies the kind of passion and determination it takes to push through obstacles and realize dreams that seem daunting or impossible in their infancy.

Cream Cheese

All dairy items used in magic impart a connection to motherhood and the nourishment of the divine feminine.

In particular, cream cheese is an especially rich element in kitchen spells and symbolizes your “inner mother”—the guiding voice that helps you to continue your journey even in the face of adversity.

Honey

The June moon is also sometimes referred to as The Honey Moon.
 
Mead and honey cakes are both traditional foods at this time of year.
 
With bee season in full swing, the golden shimmer of honey symbolizes summer, light and the world beyond our understanding.

Using Your Strawberry Moon Cookies

You may, of course, simply enjoy your strawberry moon cookies in plain celebration of the lunar cycle.

But you want to make something more of them, consider:

-Leaving one somewhere along the path of your nature walk as an offering.  You can ask the woodland spirits to guide you on your journey in whatever your current goals are.

-Give them away to your closest friend in honor of the fullness of a long-term friendship.

-Freeze them for up to 2 months and enjoy them in celebration of small successes along the journey of a long-term goal.

-Incorporate them into a kitchen-based love spell.
