A Full Moon comes together early Monday morning, around 6am CST, and 7am EDT, in the last degree of Sagittarius. Last month’s Full Moon was also in Sagittarius. A Full Moon is the Moons cycles highest peak, and it create a fertile energy and helps end things that aren’t working for us! We usually feel more intuitive during the Full Moon, with wild dreams and psychic visions. We can have sudden random Ah-Ha moments that we should really pay attention to and even investigate. The light of the Full Moon illuminates the truth, so it’s going from the unconscious to the conscious mind, it’s being made aware of things we either didn’t know or underrated yet.
A Full Moon is actually one of the most tense aspects between the Moon and the Sun every month, so just for one more day the Sun is in Gemini, and we must look at Gemini traits, even though the Sun actually slides right into the garage of its own home sign and shifts into Cancer this evening.
The Sun in Gemini has been pushing us to think more logically, while the Moon in Sagittarius has us going more with our gut instincts and intuition, our way of thinking is outside the box! Sagittarius energy shifts our focus onto the possibilities and helps us find meaning to situations. While the Sun in Gemini’s influence has us feeling quite comfortable in our immediate environment. Sagittarius grabs us and says, “get out go beyond this world.” Ideally during a Full Moon we should be focusing on creating a balance between the Sun and and Moons energies, this is exactly what the Full Moon invites us to do.
This Full Moon has us expressing ourselves and wants us to pay attention to how we communicate, and our attitude and just too listen to our sense of adventure. It’s going to be challenging to keep our feelings to ourselves, because the Full Moon is the peak of the Lunar cycles, it’s the boiling pot of water that must overflow, and our emotions must be released now. Some situations are now coming to a complete end, which always means there’s a New Beginning around the corner. There can be this push, or urgency to announce our feelings, to finally close down a situation, or to finalize something.
The Full Moon comes together the same day as the Summer Solstice, and around the time of Mercury’s opposition to Saturn and Square to Neptune. There can be harsh words, disappointments, criticism, misunderstandings, and folks trying to predict what others are saying before they say it. The Full Moons normal influence tends to be more about expressing how we feel, but we should be careful about what we are saying and how we are saying it. Other people’s opinions of us tend to be more negative during this time, and this can be frustrating, but others harsh criticism can also push us to improve ourselves.
