Hi all! Are you all excited about this bountiful bonnie Full Moon in fiery Sagittarius this week on June 9th? I know I sure am and so as with all full moons we know that the energy is waxing and reaching its climax when full. How is your life travelling for you? I know it’s been a tough time for many but never give up as one thing is for certain in this life….and that is CHANGE! This is the signature for this Sag Full Moon with Sun in Gemini.
With the Sun in Gemini and the Moon in Sagittarius we are talking about the mutable signs. This ‘mutability’ is all about being flexible, not staying rigid or fixed in your outlook. It carries with it so many great opportunities to look at where this may be happening and getting unnecessarily ‘stuck!’ This moon will be at 18 deg of Sag and so if you know where that is in your personal birth chart it will narrow the scope for you and help you to really define where it is you need to be open to some change for your highest good. Sagittarius is fire and of course the polar opposite sign being Gemini, is air. This is also an energy that is so different to our last full moon which was in Scorpio and of course the opposition there was Taurus. Water & earth elements. I spoke about the grounded, but fixed energy there and the transformation required to move forward, so here we now are with the next chapter as the Universe is asking us how we are going to express this new aspect of ourselves and if we have done our cosmic homework, so to speak, we should be feeling a little clearer about what has or hasn’t worked for us. What did you have to put out on the psychological rubbish heap after such a purge last month? Be mindful of what the journey has been presenting you with and maybe now, even though you may not be feeling 100% clear, you will have some insights into where it is you wish to move forward. Take aim with that Centaur energy as Sag will always want to do this.
The ruling planet of Sagittarius is Jupiter and he has been moving backwards (or seemed to be) in the sky since early February this year. This is the ‘Retrograde’ motion, if some of you may not be familiar with that term. So just very shortly after this full moon the largest planet in our Solar System – Jupiter, stations and prepares to move forward again. Hooray! This is such an important event in astrology. So particularly for Sagittarius, but really for everyone as we all have Jupiter featuring in our charts and lives somewhere, teaching us and offering expansion, the search for truth, promising and a broader view on life. From this we find our beliefs may be challenged. How we must make a change in our viewpoints if they are no longer serving us or the world at large. Find your unique and individual perspective and gifts and bring them to fruition with the energy of this waxing moon.
Planetary Aspects around the Full Moon
On the positive and with regard to planetary aspects we have Jupiter (in Libra) trine to the Sun (in Gemini) and sextile to the Moon In Sag. We could see a breakthrough in relationships. Something better can be on the horizon for many. This is due to the effects of Jupiter in Libra – the sign of love, relationships & money as well, moving forward. Saturn is only 6 deg from the moon in Sag and he is still retrograde and will be until 26th August this year. This energy could make us feel it’s all too difficult to decide what to do and where to begin. This is because Saturn likes structure and is quite rigid in his ways. We can feel frustrated by this influence, but if you are aware of these feelings, just remember it is temporary, and you can offset this by going within, do your meditations, pray, whatever your spiritual rituals may be that bring you focus and peace. You could push on and ‘feel the fear and do it anyway,’ as really, the more powerful energies of Jupiter moving forward and Moon in Sag probably trump this slight interference. However, if you wish to wait, just keep your eye on the goal and see the path forward as honestly the universe is truly opening the doors for us through this portal right now and will continue to.
The other aspect is Black Moon Lillith is also snuggled up to Saturn, so again close to the full moon. She says ‘don’t jump now as it is too risky! You are not ready!’ She taunts and brings up our shadow, so try to let those doubting thoughts wash over you and understand that this only brings conflict and more frustration. However, there will always be lessons from her as well, just don’t let her make you ‘freeze’ and do nothing!
There is a semi-square between Venus in Taurus and the Sun in Gemini – so here we have an opportunity to tune in and ask – what makes me feel grounded and centred, yet creative and satisfied? Meditate and listen to your intuition. Be disciplined about your daily spiritual practices, whatever they may be, such as meditation, prayer, walking in the bush, chanting, mindfullness etc. Venus in Taurus is very sensual so something that delights the senses and yet is very connected to earth and is grounding. Music, painting, clay work, whatever rocks your boat!
We have Moon square Neptune in Pisces, which helps us to imagine what things can be done. Neptune is the visionary, the dream weaver and so the energy here is to help us imagine what things can be done. Visualise it, get in touch with your own core truth and higher self. Even though it is a challenging square, these angles often work to make us work a little harder to see what is possible and if we can find the spark and work with it, we have unseen potential to create so much more than we ever dreamed was possible.
Venus in Taurus – Venus moves into its own sign – Taurus. So after being in the fiery, self obsessed sign of Aries, this planet of love and harmony finds such comfort in the sensual, earthy sign of Taurus. This is a time to get in touch with our senses and explore our inner ‘Zen.’ Meaning find what really helps you to chill and find the healing in the simple pleasures that help us to also recharge ready to face the world outside that sometimes strips us of such pleasures.
Mercury (planet of communication) moves into Gemini on 7/6 and again here is a planet in its own sign. The stepping stones and building energy of when Mercury was last moving through Taurus but has finished so what is the new platform we can express from via the air sign of Gemini? Gemini is the king of self expression and all about finding different ways of communicating. This is the element of air so the energies are moving faster and with a very different style and will feel much lighter and have us thinking more about our choices and decisions as the air element triggers the intellect.
Uranus is at Aries 27 degrees and makes a lovely harmonious trine to Saturn in Sag at 25 deg and to the North Node at 27 deg Leo! This really speaks about making our individual insights a reality as Uranus triggers the genius in us and Saturn is the grounding energy giving us the practical application and then with the North Node of the Moon in Leo, we are talking about our karmic or spiritual quest. This it really a very potent and wonderful time to manifest what it is we have wanted to make work. If there was ever a better time than now, I really can’t speak enough about this wonderful opportunity. The only thing is with trines, they can be so easy that we neglect to act upon them. The squares and the conjunctions are difficult but force us to act so try to realise the potential at this time as we are being given a beautiful opportunity to move forward with what we really want to manifest for our highest good and be our most creative selves.
I will leave it here and as always, I wish you only great things during and after this glorious Full Moon phase in the generous, wild at heart, benevolent sign of Sagittarius! Aim high, stand strong! 🙂
Much love. x
