On May 29th, it’s that time again. We have a full moon in the fire sign of Sagittarius with some other interesting influences you definitely want to know about! It’s going to be a full moon that can bring success, love, and potentially self-righteous behavior. We have laid out the basics for you so you don’t have to go digging through the web trying to interpret complex astrology terminology.
If you missed the Taurus new moon article, check it out on our website and notice how you felt around mid-May. Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter, the planet of expansion and success, so you’re likely to find tasty opportunities in this cosmic cocktail!
A Full Moon’s Meaning
If you haven’t been tracking the moon cycles, you’ll find it very useful in your success with managing your own emotions. Full moons affect the water in our bodies, the nervous system, and blood vessels. Ask any ER nurse or police officer and they will tell you, a full moon definitely affects everyone in a major way!
We see more women go into labor, more bar fights, and more heart attacks. But it’s not a negative event if you understand it and prepare for it. This monthly event brings to fruition the seeds you planted at the new moon, whether it’s a new job, a move, a new spiritual gift, financial abundance, a solid group of friends, or even a nice vacation. It can be what you felt called to bring into your life.
If you have been visualizing and working towards making some changes, you’ll often get results on the full moon. It’s actually a very exciting and predictable time of positive change for those that track the cycles of the moon.
A Time For Love
This full moon is sextile Mars, bringing the passion of that fire planet to increase our sexual energy. This can reignite our relationships or give us the boost of confidence we need to start something new.
All full moons have potential to bring new love if that’s something we have been working to manifest. Notice how people have an extra boost of energy. There’s usually a flurry of activity around each full moon that can help put you in new social environments.
Don’t Engage In Battle
Do not go looking for drama with family or people with different belief systems, even though you may feel like doing just that. You will likely feel like stirring things up or trying to ‘“win” in every conversation you have, but take the high road. Let your aggression out in healthy ways like sports or challenging physical activities like running or rock climbing or yoga to divert that energy.
If you feel like someone is challenging your self worth, can you just let it go and be self assured instead of putting up your dukes and sparring? You’re not likely to feel better by puffing up your chest. There’s room for more than one philosophy on this planet.
Have you seen the movie ‘Angry Birds?’ I want to use it as a metaphor for how we can positively use the intense energy in this full moon. The birds in the movie channel their combined energy to do good for the big picture instead of making things worse by being a loose cannon.
We are driven by a powerful aspect here. The moon is aligning with a star that puts us in fight mode. There are psychically opposing forces, very strong ones, at play in the cosmos, with the sun aligned with another strong star energy. Astrologers predict these opposing forces to be some of the strongest effects a planet can have, so why not prepare yourself not to engage? If there ever were a time to practice nonviolent communication, it’s now.
Don’t Give Away Your Power
The sun is in intellectually curious Gemini and we may be finding our viewpoints expanding or shifting. Be aware that another aspect of this full moon makes us vulnerable to people who are trying to collect followers. Our idealistic nature may seek the comfort of a strong person, but we must be diligent not to get swept up in someone else’s vision too quickly.
Hold fast to your own goals, take time to listen to your intuition, and don’t jump on board with things that seem like a golden ticket without meditating on it for a while. Sometimes leaders who are subconsciously insecure try to gather a posse to make themselves feel like they have a solid footing. Stand strong on your own feet.
As with all lunar events, in order to truly understand the big picture, we want to be aware of what else is influencing us during major planetary events. Uranus entered Taurus on May 15th after being in Aries for 6 years. This is definitely going to have a noticeable effect on you. You may find a completion of a 6 year cycle of reclaiming your power that begun during 2010-2011. You will have consistency in moving into your higher goals and long term plans. Security may now be found in believing in yourself and taking risks instead of in material goods. A strong sense of new found purpose is likely with this shift.
We still have Pluto and Saturn retrograde which means we are undergoing transformation. You may feel like your foundation is shifting. Change isn’t a bad thing, it’s just different from what we are used to. With the next eclipse season around the corner in July and August, the transformation you are undergoing may feel confusing but it will bring changes that started in January and February.
Stay on course, you’re making progress – even if it feels like you’re a ship on a stormy sea.
