On Friday morning June 9, a Full Moon occurs when the Gemini Sun opposes the Moon in Sagittarius.
The Gemini-Sagittarius polarity is a mental axis, where Gemini represents the “lower mind” and Sagittarius represents the “higher mind”. The Gemini Sun encourages us to think logically, while the Sagittarius Moon persuades us to intuit and to think in a broader manner. Sagittarius symbolizes the quest for meaning and ideas that expand upon the “here and now.” Gemini is quite comfortable in his or her immediate environment or neighborhood, while Sagittarius stimulates us to venture beyond it. Ideally, a balance should be found between the two energies, and this is what the Full Moon invites us to do.
FULL MOON in Sagittarius asks us to focus on our heart’s pathway. With so much swirling, we can easily feel despondent about our future but by narrowing our focus deeper into heart inquiry, we can access revealing truths to consider. Focusing our attention within can bring much expansion about your current emotional situation.
“The Moon is conjunct Saturn which narrows our vision. Sagittarius, who loves to say YES to everything and anyone is being shut down. This can be uncomfortable to those who are overly generous with their time and emotions. We are being asked to sift through the information we have to figure out the truth so that we can clearly define where we’re going.
“Right now it feels like there’s something we need to understand at a much deeper level than we do. Whilst Saturn has a restrictive quality, he also encourages us to master whatever he touches. “Right now Saturn is saying master your emotions. Don’t let them take over. Look to the future but be realistic.
Because Sagittarius is all about the higher mind, e may need to consider whether we are in the right place to facilitate growth and expansion, or whether our circumstances are in fact hindering our potential. “This is a challenging Moon but not an impossible one. We cannot afford to give up and give in (Neptune) or to carry on regardless (Saturn). This weighty Full Moon has a quality of seriousness with a focus on a specific mission, goal, or purpose.
“The Sun in Gemini creates some tension because there is an equally powerful desire for variety and a tendency toward distraction which can leave us running in circles, unable to tend to our responsibilities and more important priorities. In fact, this Full Moon is helping us to more clearly define or accept our purpose, whatever that may be. Full Moon’s often coincide with an influx of excess energy, though some of us may respond to this particular situation with feelings of depression, hopelessness and futility. “This is because Saturn is always forcing us to face our limitations and employ reality testing to keep our ideals in check with what’s actually possible.
“If you find yourself feeling frustrated or sad, check in with yourself and take a sober look at what you’re dedicating the majority of your time and energy toward. Maybe the universe is telling you to take a different direction? And remember, whatever you’re feeling is only transient in the moment. It will pass in the following days. Take whatever awareness or realization you acquire with this Full Moon and use it to guide you out of the fog of uncertainty and existential angst. “Reflect deeply upon any potential commitments you’re considering at the moment. This powerful Full Moon is helping to provide us with a much needed perspective to take us to higher ground in our personal and professional lives. “Most of all pay close attention to your feelings and emotional center. It will have a lot to tell you about your current life direction. Watch for too-quick decisions, but do pay close attention to what’s illuminated now.
