- On June 9, 2017
On June 9, 2017 the Full Moon in Sagittarius will enlighten us, broaden horizons, and detach us from the status quo. Sagittarius is a fire sign, with an insatiable desire to hunt and attain its heart’s desire. When the moon moves into fiery Sag, it takes on these qualities and we all become focused on the hunt, we are compelled to take action toward achieving goals. It becomes easier to detaching from people, situations, and physical and emotional constraints that stand in our way. However, during this full moon, Saturn, the planet of structure, lessons, and maturity is playing an important role; essentially taming and directing our fire towards a higher focus.
During this full moon, the sun in Gemini will be sitting across the sky from the moon in Sagittarius, creating an axis of energy that we are being called to balance. Gemini, deals with common knowledge and accepted ideas, trends, gossips, and belief systems of our community and culture. On the other end of the spectrum Sagittarius represents, higher minded ideas and consciousness, a deeper level of understanding, spirituality, philosophy, travel, and exploration of different cultures and their rules and belief systems. The Gemini side of the axis is what we know, what we have relied upon, what is comfortable and accepted. On the other side is Sagittarius, representing universal truth, unexplored possibilities, and an elevation in thinking and consciousness.

The Full Moon in Sagittarius is the time to let go of what you know in favor what you have come to understand about yourself and the world. Take a look at your strengthens, talents, and what you have relied upon to get you where you are thus far; consider you goals and the things, practices, and principles that you hold valuable… now ask yourself are these things an asset or a hindrance? Are you doing these things because it’s acceptable, it’s what you’ve always done, or it’s what’s expected of you? More importantly, are you able to achieve your goals by maintaining this personal status-quo? These questions and answers are part of Saturn’s lessons for you this full moon, sometimes taking responsibility for your actions means giving up things that no longer serve you. Remember, to get something different you must do something different.

While Saturn’s influence will help you release and mature under the full moon, Neptune, Uranus, Jupiter and Mars are sending supportive energy to literally help you move forward. Neptune thins the vail between fantasy/spirituality and reality. During this time you may feel disconnected from reality at times. Your creative spark will be very strong; some may say dreamy and detached but creative vision on a million is another to explain what you are feeling. Trust your dreams, visions, and inspiration but try to keep things grounded.
When Uranus makes a positive aspect with the moon it signifies a time of strong intuition, sudden insights, and a time to change things up. This resonates perfectly with the moon in Sagittarius which inspires us to take action and necessary risks, knowing all the while that the universe has your back. If any information drops into your lap, either in the “real” world or from your gut, trust it…. the universe is dropping knowledge on you.

Jupiter (the planet which rules Sagittarius) is making a positive connection to the moon, strengthening Sagittarius’ energy and supporting our need for freedom, growth, and travel as well giving unexpected luck and opportunity. Earlier, when I wrote about getting out of your comfort zone and stop relying on what has always worked, this connection between the moon and Jupiter will really help us move forward. You will find emotional satisfaction from travel, exploring, taking a class, connecting with spirit, and doing anything that is different from what you have done before. Many of the decisions that you decided to take will feel tied to a larger purpose or the greater good.
As you set your intentions for release under the full moon in Sagittarius take inventory of the things you heavily rely on or where you are too set in your ways, these could be the things that are holding you back.
If you feel like you are loosing your way and the light at the end of the tunnel is dimming, your passion and dedication is the spark that keeps you moving. A Venus and Mars connection will be that spark for us during this full moon. On one hand we will be assertive and focused on our needs but will also be considerate of the needs of others. Emotional satisfaction and taking care of overarching goals will motivate us forward. Our actions will be more assertive and less aggressive. People are more likely to play nicely in the sandbox and even create some heat in the sheets.
As you set your intentions for release under the full moon in Sagittarius take inventory of the things you heavily rely on or where you are too set in your ways, these could be the things that are holding you back. Your intuition will guide you down a new path, trust yourself and the universe will open doors of opportunity for you. Have the courage to let go and evolve. You will find freedom you seek in the evolution process.
