On June 17th, 2019 (1:31 AM PDT and 4:31 AM EDT) the Moon glows in the fiery, resilient, and adventure seeking sign of Sagittarius. The sign that is here to expand beyond the familiar, is filled with a large dose of optimism, and is wired to seek for what exists behind and within every moment. She is the sign that thrives off of taking risks, loves to be on a quest, believes that anything is possible, relies on freedom, and seeks for truth in everything. When she’s functioning at her best she’s motivated to experience all that life has to offer. Her shadow appears if she only focuses on the “muchness” or “grandness” and forgets that life can also be fragile. It could also appear when she gets wrapped up in claiming what she knows as the only way to live. You’ll likely recognize this in her when it seems she has ALL the answers, but doesn’t leave room for anyone else’s opinion.
As you know, a Full Moon is a time of completion and it is a time of manifesting. It is also a time to consider the polarizing energy from both the Sun and the Moon. This particular Full Moon leads us into the tension between the Sagittarius energy I mentioned above that calls for expansion, faith, and a belief that anything is possible. While the Gemini energy is asking us to remain curious, be inquisitive, and to be ready to absorb everything along our path. Just remember that when polarization is present, integration is the key. So maybe do your best to keep an open mind even though you are certain a situation will turn out a particular way. Sometimes it’s easy to jump ahead in our story, but it’s really important that we stay present to the here and now because we are constantly writing and rewriting the script for our life. As much as we think we know, we must remember there’s more than that. If we manage to stay curious while taking it all in, more and more possibilities will open up for us. Here’s some more good news: based on the placements and timing of this Full Moon, it is likely that a project, event, idea, or situation is finally wrapping up from several months ago. If this is the case, you’re likely to experience a positive outcome.I like the sound of that.
I would also like to add that Jupiter, the ruler of Sagittarius is mingling quite closely to this Full Moon, and it’s in its natural sign. In other words, it’s turned up on high and your faith and belief that anything is possible is now amplified. This is a great time for you to stretch beyond your comfort zone and reach for what you really want.Sounds great in theory, right? Just make sure your answer to that question doesn’t come from a mind that is running on autopilot.
Take some time to get clear about what exactly it is that you really want. Ask yourself: What would I like to experience? What moves my soul? What am I here to create? What am I here to see? To feel? To know? To witness? What do I want from a particular situation? What DO I really want?Play with your answers and don’t be afraid to ask yourself these questions over and over until you uncover what it is that is hiding underneath.
So during this lunation, give yourself permission to dream big and feel the freedom to envision the life you would like to birth into reality.Of course it’s wise to keep in mind that too much of a “good” thing can also lead to feeling overwhelmed and that too much of something can also get us into trouble. Use your discernment and try not to let your overzealous attitude blind you from seeing the potential dangers in a situation.I don’t say that to scare you or to dampen the mood, but to remind you that only seeing the positive in a situation might mean that you are missing crucial aspects to the story, too.
Lastly, Neptune is making an appearance for this Full Moon. Neptune is the mystical and dreamy planet that is consciousness itself. When it’s functioning at its highest potential dreams, visions, and the imagination flow beautifully, but this planet can also bring illusion, lack of clarity, drifting, and escapism. Since it’s making a difficult aspect to this Full Moon be careful of falling into a situation where it’s hard for you to distinguish fantasy from reality.In other words, we must deal with any illusions that stand before us that are linked to the dreams we have for our life. If confusion sets in let the mystery of the unknown guide you, but also do your best to confront the reality of your situation head on. You have access to plenty of faith right now so use it to lean into the truth and believe that more will be revealed to you in time.
While we all might feel pulled during this Full Moon to expand our horizons, we will each experience this lunar energy differently depending on where Sagittarius is located in your chart or if you have a natal planet associated with it. If you’re interested in a more personalized reading, I’d love to set up a session with you.
