Full Moon in Sagittarius: What It Means & How To Harness Its Energy
The Full Moon illuminates the struggle between logic and intuition/faith. The brightness of the moon in the sky is symbolic to our own lives. What exactly does each moon cycle illuminate in your life? The new feelings exposed by this are often emotional ones that come bursting forward from deep within our consciousness.
The Full Moon:
Full moons are like the peak point of energy in a cycle. Often on a full moon we can see things manifesting in our lives. Full moons are our opportunity to reap what we have been sowing and harvest the efforts of our work, but this full moon is slightly different
We experienced the second full moon in Sagittarius on May 21st with the sun in the opposite sign of Gemini. The last full moon in May was also in Sagittarius. Having two full moons in the same sign is very rare and is likely to present some new opportunities in our lives. For instance; the Sagittarius full moon presents us with the opportunity to take another step in, expand our underrating of, and find greater meaning in our lives.
Sagittarius is about: Your beliefs, your truths, your perspectives, your experiential wisdom, your travel, your marketing, and your publishing.
This month’s Sagittarius sign instills in a greater urge to announce, close, or finalize a matter. Or even get the final word in on a matter. The full moon increases the power of Sagittarius by enhancing and encouraging certain qualities.
The month of June will be an emotional time, a time of romance, fertilization, and relationships. It will be a time to express yourself, and to let things out of your system. However, you won’t find yourself to be particularly uncaring, your rationale will kick in and remind you that what is coming out of your mouth is fresh and unrefined.
Power of the Moon:
After the full moon peaked, mercury started to go direct. What this means is that wherever mercury chooses to stand in your life will end up being a powerful point of consideration. One that may need your attention.
Mercury is essentially the planet of communication and when it is in retrograde (moves backward) it tends to reveal a truth in our lives that we may not have noticed.
Mercury’s truth may be delivered to you in the form of delays, miscommunications, or setbacks, but know that these are all ways that mercury shows you the cracks that need to be fixed.
Considering that Mars retrograde in Sagittarius is aligned with the full moon, for some this can be of intense emotional energy and anxiousness. In some cases, there could be debate and conflict over beliefs and/or facts.
Gemini and Sagittarius:
The full moon draws from both Gemini and Sagittarius; these are the positions of the Sun and the Moon, respectively. There is tension in the opposition between the sun and moon. The focus of Gemini (information, curiosity, interchange with others) leads to the focus of Sagittarius-finding the meaning in all that information, the quest for truth and wisdom, and entering into an interchange with whatever lies beyond the self.
So to sum up, the Gemini-Sagittarius relationship is basically a pairing of two opposites. Where Gemini represents the lower mind and Sagittarius represents the higher mind.
The Gemini Sun encourages logical thought, while the Sagittarius Moon encouraged intuition. Ideally, a balance should be found between the two energies, and this is what the Full Moon invites us to do.
This Full Moon is about communication, attitude, and our sense of adventure. I’m sure you have felt something building inside of you. Well, now is the time for that energy to come out. Right as the cosmos demands it.
Over the next two weeks, you will discover what it means. For now, make sure you let your feelings run rampant, express them in every and anyway you can.
