WE LIVE UNDER THE SUN & DREAM UNDER THE MOON
“Don’t fence me in.” Cries the Full Moon when it rests within the placement of Sagittarius. Backed with a Gemini Sun, the need for freedom is even stronger, so is the sense of adventure in stepping onto new ground. There is no time for limiting beliefs or strings to hold you down when the World beckons to be explored.
Limitations or boundaries seem to disappear when the moon enters Sagittarius. That sense of restlessness which came when the New Moon was in Gemini, is amplified now that it is Full and in Sagittarius, illuminating the energy of the nomadic philosopher. There is a need for movement, but a lack in direction, which makes it difficult to know where to place all of this stagnate and built up energy. All this expansion and need for growth also comes from Jupiter moving direct in Libra on June 9th, the same day of the Full Moon. I would say that this energy feels much like the aspiring artist moving away from their home and all they have known for the sake of finding themselves and harnessing their craft.
That does not mean that all relationships come to an end, or that lover’s drift apart; some will come closer as their limiting beliefs of vulnerability and being overly guarded will change. This moon is freedom loving, but once it finds a soul mate to run wild with, the journey becomes more exciting when shared. This is a time of both marriage, commitments, and separation for better direction. Whatever path is chosen, it is for the sake of expansion and adventure towards a new chapter or era. So, another analogy which also matches the energy of this Full Moon is the Casanova finally committing to a life partner – their ideals on love and lust have grown to a new and more evolved understanding, and so they are ready for a new adventure in exploring new cycles.
This isn’t just for relationships, however this area is highlighted thanks to the Libra energy with Jupiter and the Sagittarius Moon being an amplifier, but there is something within your life this Full Moon is trying to break you free from, and that can be a current situation or your own limiting beliefs which keep you constricted to a foundation which is no longer able to support your expansion that Jupiter promises.
Vision & Insight
The energy of the Full Moon is very nomadic, not because it is lost, rather it seeks adventure and new experiences. There is a need to explore beyond what is currently in front of you.
While this Full Moon brings a lot of luck, growth and reward with it, it does first subject you to challenges and tasks to prove yourself worthy enough to walk through the gates of your new era in cycles and evolution.
Fix your eyes the bigger picture, and try not to be so focused at what is happening right in front of you – see beyond it and know there is a reason for all. You cannot tame the wild Sagittarius, but you can learn surrender to its energy and use the flow to empower your choices and movements, as that is where the intellectual power of man meets the primal actions of the beast.
Ready, Aim & Fire...
The best aspect of this Full Moon energy is the ability to reach for higher goals and having an idealistic and positive influence in seeing them as approachable. Sagittarius is the sign of moving beyond limitations and shows new heights and possibilities available.
Those intentions you had set for the previous New moon in Gemini is now amplified with the Full Moon in Sagittarius.
The ground is not yet stable enough to start on big investments or cashing in from our efforts, but it is coming. We are still in the incubation period, but the eye of the storm has left, and so we can see the sun as it rejuvenates us towards our new era. The target is visible, and the winds no longer threaten to misdirect your aim - regain your focus.
How to Work With the Full Moon Energy
The energy is very carefree and enthusiastic. You might bite off more you can chew if you choose to sign contracts or make big purchases, or even lending money, as there is a high chance you will not get what you sign up for. Lending money will often go unpaid, and you might be too focused on the positive when making deals or investments – practicality is needed with the energy of this Full Moon and the influence it has on us. Rather than spending money, put your focus on how you make some instead. This is a very energetic time for the mind in reaching further into the realm of ideas that are made of gold.
Lots of exorcise! Help release the stagnate energy and heal your restlessness with a good workout. Yoga or pilates, workouts that focus on the hips and flexibility are most beneficial. Even walking outside with nature would be beneficial and naturally grounding.
Family & Friends
Travel is likely as well, such as camping or even taking a day trip out in nature. If you are staying in to unwind, then throw a get-together with those you love and enjoy the most.
There might be disputes about the need for freedom and expression. Passion is highlighted, and many lovers will come closer after reconciliation, while others might need their independence and drift to a different direction. This is a time of marriage, and a time of finding a different path, either separately or together.
This is a great time to practice astral travel and reaching out to the different realms. This Sagittarius Moon is all for broadening your knowledge in your spiritual studies and trying new things that will elevate and expand the gifts you already have. Your mind might be too restless for your regular quiet meditation, but adding something new in the mix like crystals, trying to achieve something such as astral travel or accessing the akashic records, would help make it more interesting.
