It helps us establish boundaries so we don’t take things too personally, or take on too much of other people’s baggage," Astrology.com explained. "Under this full moon, we can develop a better sense of when it’s safe and appropriate to express our feelings, and when we’re better off keeping a stiff upper lip."

Overall, the June 2018 Strawberry full moon could leave all signs of the zodiac feeling a little morose, especially with Saturn currently retrograde, but this too shall pass. "You may have to deal with some challenging situations and negative attitudes, which will feel worse than they actually are," Astrology King explained on its website.
"These hindrances and restrictions will apply mainly to your home and family life. Some drama involving your home, parents, children, or your partner will be very trying on your emotions and can lead to feelings of rejection and depression."
Part of that dreaded adulting means facing and dealing with these feelings instead of stuffing them down, because that never works and will only come back to bite you later. As a grown up, it's time to face reality instead of burying your head in the sand. If you're rolling your eyes, I'm right there with you. But, it's really for the best, even if it doesn't feel that way now.
"Self-discipline and emotional maturity are called for, and feelings of guilt about past behaviors need to be overcome," Astrology King advised. "Exposing emotional vulnerabilities and opening up to loved ones will enable the nurturing and closer bonding required to overcome the problem." The bottom line? The best way to get through the June 2018 strawberry full moon is to take a deep breath and face the music. It won't be as bad as it seems.
