Full Moon in Sagittarius: Tapping into faith
This is a surreal week with many confusing elements, as ones that are reprimanding, demanding, and strict. On hand, the South Node/Saturn/Pluto story is being triggered by Mars, planet of action, transiting in Cancer. On June 14, 2019, Mars exactly opposes Saturn, the planet of restrictions. This helps to remind us of our limitations.
This can feel frustrating and irritating. The upside is that it can be a good time for tasks that are laborious and need a lot of patience and focus. Saturn will certainly not expedite things, so this energy could help with projects that require a lot of time.
Mars proceeds to oppose and set off Pluto, the planet of power and transformation, on June 19, 2019. That is a very combative aspect, and one where people can be very power hungry. We are feeling the buildup of all of this, and this also gives yet another preview of the Capricorn convergence that takes place in 2019 with The South Node, Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto all transiting in the Cardinal earth sign of Capricorn. Heavy restructuring and karmic lessons are ready for all of us this next year and a half.
Mars opposite Pluto can be a very difficult aspect. You want to assess what is worth fighting and purge unnecessary anger or intolerance. We are nearing Eclipse season, which is in the Cancer/Capricorn axis, so this story is not gone for any of us. We are just getting started.
In contrast to the demanding lessons that Capricorn lineup requires, Jupiter is forming an exact square to Neptune, the planet of dreams and imagination, on June 16, 2019. This is the second time that the two have sparred in the sky. Jupiter is the ancient ruler of Pisces and represents where we expand, how we manifest our vision, and how we gather knowledge. It is currently transiting in its home sign of Sagittarius through December 3, 2019, and this brings the maximum potential of this huge planet.
Neptune is also transiting in its home sign of Pisces. It represents the dream, imagination, spiritual growth, and fears. Jupiter and Neptune will never square one another in their home signs again in our lifetime, so this is a pretty big deal. The two already formed a square on January 13, 2019 at 14 degrees of Sagittarius and Pisces respectively.
Both Sagittarius and Pisces are mutable signs, which are adaptable. The two working in tandem can exaggerate emotions, creativity, inspiration. On the shadow side, it can expand deception, fear, heavy emotions, and self undoing. You want to go to the creative, which is so accessible in this configuration. The two will square at 18 degrees of Sagittarius and Pisces. If you have planets at 15 to 21 degrees of the mutable signs, you will feel this the most: Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces. We will all feel the foggy and dreamy impact it carries with it.
With this combination, it is very different than the Cardinal intentions of the Capricorn trio, which is currently ruling the sky. It might be that it is telling us that in order to learn and structure our goals and lessons, we also need to have faith and dreams.
It is easy to forget that with the recent year(s) we have had. Listen to music, go to concerts, dance, chant, meditate, sing, write, journal, take sea salt baths, go to the ocean, and believe in something. Whatever it is for you, focus on something which inspires you creatively. Inevitably, this is a summer of tough lessons with the Eclipses close by, but you need to have dreams.
There is a Full Moon in the mutable fire sign of Sagittarius that occurs on June 17, 2019 at 25 degrees of Sagittarius at 4:31 pm EDT. This full moon in Sagittarius is conjunct Jupiter in the seventh house of relationships. Jupiter is the ruler of Sagittarius; therefore, it is in its home sign. Jupiter is a grand Benefic, and it usually brings good fortune. It can bring in a lot of opportunity in relationships and partnerships of all forms. However, bear in mind that Jupiter expands everything: the good and the bad.
This Full Moon might bring fruition to something you have started. However, there are also many planets in Cancer right now, which is a Cardinal water sign and is highly emotional. Jupiter expands the moon, and it can expand the emotional reactions that we all have. Let it expand your hope and optimism. Jupiter is still exactly square to Neptune, so this Full moon proves to be wacky, imaginative, and otherworldly. People might act like they are in another orbit. You might be, too.
“Hold Fast to dreams
For if dreams die
Life is a broken-winged bird
That cannot fly
Hold fast to dreams
For when dreams go
Life is a barren field
frozen with snow.”
“Dreams” by Langston Hughes
