The wave of energy becomes much stronger today with a Full Moon at 1’ Sagittarius at 4:15 PM CDT. We will have 2 Sagittarius Full Moons, as June’s Full Moon on the 20th will be at the very last degree - 29 degrees Sagittarius. This is very big energy with Saturn in Sagittarius and Mars retrograde sitting in between these two full Moons.
It’s ‘Once in a Blue Moon time’.
Since full moons occur every 29.53 days, occasionally a season will contain 4 full moons. The extra full moon of the season is known as a blue moon.
Blue moons occur on average once every 2.7 years.
This time period is all about expansion, looking for new horizons, risking letting your truth coming out, clearing the decks of old debris and going out of your comfort zone - where your senses are heightened. This can really light up where you feel things have gone stagnant… as Full Moons bring things to a head.
We are often the ones that are maintaining the restrictions in our own live. Like the tethered elephant story ( I use this a lot in my life).
Self-doubt, negative thinking, and fear are all chains. They hold us back from growing into the person that our Soul longs for us to become. Like the adult elephant, we loose sight of the fact that all it takes is one quick movement towards our goals , and we will break the chains!
Are you sticking with the same thing just because its familiar and safe - even when it feels uninspired, loveless and unfulfilling?
Can the situation be revived or does it need to be completely transformed… or is it time to walk away?
We will begin to see the answers between now and the 2nd week of June. Mercury turning around will help.
As always, the Sun and Moon are a perfect bridge at the peak of the Full Moon. Imagine a see saw and on one side The Sun and Vesta are snugged up close in Gemini, while on the other side The Moon and Mars are doing the same in Sagittarius. There is some tension there as full moons always bring things to light and with Mars retrograde in a fire sign, we need to be aware of possibilities for impulsive actions and tempers flaring.
Vesta helps us see wisdom through our inner furnace of creative fire with the Sun… we are processing lots of info. Then Mars and the Moon speak to a need to translate this info through our physical world (especially our bodies) into a higher mind wisdom. Mercury is stationing tomorrow and is still engaged in the Grand Earth Trine that can help us stay grounded. We are in a deep reevaluation process… time to decide what needs a do over, a remodel or a tear down to begin again.
So let your body and your physical surroundings speak to you today… what is coming to light? Be aware that with this retrograde cycle of Mercury and Mars, anything that has been bottled up or suppressed can come rocketing past the surface. If not in you, in the other. So don’t speed, look before you leap, someone will most likely be reckless and frustrated. The time around a Mercury station is extra strong and when you mix that with a Full Moon… we can have some profound AhHah moments that will shift the direction of our path. Try to see the Big Picture today and by all means find time to play!
