Sagittarius Full Moon - June 20th, 2016

This is the second Sagittarius Full Moon this season, and a bright note that coincides with Summer Solstice!  

In this perilous sea of delusion and overwrought emotion, Sagittarius makes a beeline for the fiery trail that's true.  It's on June 20th, and at 29 degrees, which is the master degree, a kind of last blast.  

The Sagittarius Moon is jolted awake with Uranus in a stimulating trine from Aries.

 It's one of those moments, you know the kind, where the pieces fuse together in a new awareness -- and suddenly the future looks brighter.  

This is a fire sign of action, and sometimes Full Moons are active, as opposed to New Moons.  With all the mutable shifting, things could happen fast, and jettison you down an unexpected pathway. 

What's outstanding, too, is that Mercury (in Gemini) forms a triggering T-square with Saturn-Neptune.  If you're being triggered by life, and overwhelmed, this could be one of those breakthrough moments.

My tip for this peak is to trust your higher moral conscience, and sense of what's true.  If you sense you're drowning in confusion, the steps to awareness could be giant ones now.    

You can blaze your own trail with moral courage, an open mind and willingness to question all you know.  

Burning Vision

So a way to peak with the Sagittarius Full Moon is to break through stifling conditioning, and soar with a vision.

  That makes it a stellar time to make a Vision Board-Collage.

In the days leading up to the Full Moon and after, entertain possibilities that give you that tingle inside, the zing of optimism. 

Far-sighted or Delusional?

Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter, the planet of aspirations and guiding visions.  These are filtered through the charge of idea-collector Gemini (Sun), and fueled by the aim of the archer (Sagittarius Moon).


It's happening at 29 degree Gemini-Sagittarius, so look to this axis on your birth chart.  This is the line of influx and observation, that is translated to the big picture.  

Where are you aimed?  Keep in mind that in drastic times like these, with so much changing -- and so fast -- it can seem like your target is moving constantly.

And yet, many planets are still in retrograde, including Mars, which is retrograde to June 29th, when the flashes of the future you see now, can more easily be mapped out and manifested.

Night Light

On the flip side, it's possible to see through many filters, and have an exhilarating breakthrough -- the kind that becomes a kind of addiction to truth seekers.  

The leap of logic here is that if we don't get swamped by facts or delusions, there is a bright path to walk ahead. 

A fire Moon ritual could be to burn off what's draining your vitality.  It's time to drop dead weight, like mental loops that keep you spinning in a small mental terrain.  You can break out of a cordoned off "free speech zone," for a more expansive engagement with life.   


At this Sagittarius Full Moon, there can be flash sightings of a new big picture.

Sagittarius is mutable fire, the sign of broad knowledge -- the kind that connects the dots.

This is very, very empowering, and allows you to consider new and surprising possibilities.

A Sagittarius Full Moon brings together the lively curiosity of Gemini (Sun) and the sharp instincts of Sagittarius (Moon).

It's time for the enlightened Fool to set forth on a new adventure! Be watchful for prophetic dreams, and note the serendipity in waking life.

Wise Fool

That's why the Fool in the Tarot comes to mind now.

The Fool travels light, and is at a stage of setting out with no preconceived ideas. That's what Uranus Aries encourages -- to go beyond the conditioned groove, what's handed down -- to what originates from the emerging self.

A Full Moon in Sagittarius now, with all that's going on, energizes the mind. This attracts us to ideas and people that put things into an inspired frame, rather than one that's demoralizing.

This is the time to shift, to shake off the cobwebs, and scan the horizon for an idea whose time has come.

Sagittarius is the sign of truth and high ideals. Gandhi said, "Truth is by nature self-evident. As soon as you remove the cobwebs of ignorance that surround it, it shines clear." With the clarity, unveiling and burning off of what's false, a new path forward is realized.
