Full Moon in Sagitarius

Welcome to the Full Moon in Sagitarius, which I understand will be the first of two consecutive Full Moons in Sagitarius in a row.  Now taking nothing for granted… I had to see for myself.. the next full moon occurs on June 20th at 7:02 am and will be in the sign of Sagitarius.  So, called a blue moon indicating a phenomena that doesn’t generally occur in the course of a season.

The Moon, which represents our emotional nature, our inner selves, dreams, the subconscious, instincts, and habit patterns, to name a few, in the sign of Sagitarius which is masculine, mutable fire.  Sagitarius is the wisdom of the zodiac, and shows how and where you are best able to make sense of a particular area in your life, depending on where the sign appears in your chart.  Sagitarius is energetic, generous, free thinking, a challenge seeker, so never give a true Sagitarian what he or she wants without making them work for it.  Ruled by Jupiter, the Roman god of good fortune and optimism.  Sagitarians are communicators, and if you’re not on your toes, you could find yourself going down a road without any idea how you got there.  With 2nd house energies, the Moon turns its focus to the value we place on things, including your own sense of worth, so we keep that in mind as we look at the other planets this Moon has playing with it starting with the opposition to the Sun which sits in the sign of Gemini.  Gemini is masculine mutable air, the great thinker of the zodiac, so combined with the Moon’s heightened sense of communicating, and you would think that one would go with the other, thinking and then speaking, but these two signs are typically at odds with each other; both signs being masculine which would naturally lead you to assume a level of testosterone that just naturally doesn’t fit seamlessly together.  Gemini is busy learning what Sagitarius has already accomplished; they are on different levels.

Also opposite the Moon is Venus, the planet of love and beauty.  Venus is about asthetics, one’s ability to express affection, and love which is too often tied to things it possesses… Sagitarius could care less about possessions other than that which helps it do what it wants to do, things for the sake of having them isn’t the Sagitarian’s nature.  With the Moon-Venus opposition, you may feel uncomfortable with your emotions, and may find yourself at odds with others, caring little for what is considered traditional.  With 8th house energies, the superficial has little meaning.

Last but not least is the cojunction with Mars.  The conjunction occurs when two planets are within 0-8 degrees of each other, almost side by side, each strengthens the other.  Mars is physical, vitality, assertiveness, agression, and energy. Mars in Sagitarius gets us directly to the point, without frills, or fluff, so if the Sun in Gemini has you fighting your emotional side, with Mars standing with the Moon, the sun’s logical sense is easily shut down.  Our emotions are in good hands in Sagitarius, because that need to grow is a positive move versus staying where we are comfortable… go with those new directions, step out on faith, and enjoy the road ahead…you’ve been sitting still much too long.

With the Sun being in Gemini, in Kabbalah, Gemini is the month of Sivan.  Sivan is the Twins.  In the book of Shir Ha’Shirim (song of songs) it is written, “Thy two breasts are like two fawns that are twins of a gazelle, which feed among the lilllies.´  Kabbalah says the connection between the breasts and the twins is the essence of two, which essentially is one; the connection between right column energy (the desire to share) and left column energy (the desire to receive).  The breasts represent central column which, Kabbalah says, creates circuitry, balance and wholeness… the ability to connect right and left column energies in harmony.  We combine the traditions of kabbalah into metaphysics associating left column energy with the female body fluids with the desire to receive and the milk from her breasts as right column, the desire to share, adding the two together is the elixir of life, balance, fullness, and the ability to transform.  Rabbi Akiva associated this into the Children of Israel receiving the Torah, and the two becoming one, as one accepts their role as a physical being with the divine.

The month of Sivan is ruled by the planet Mercury.  In Greek mythology, Mercury was the messenger, Kabbalah states this means he was on both sides of giving and receiving.  Giving and receiving is something that is absolute in our physical world, as one receives in direct proportion to that which one gives out, and the two faces of the Gemini can be taken to mean, that can be for either the good or the bad, because while it is true that based upon how we have made decisions in the past, free will lends to your ability to go against that at any point, to rewrite what will be your future from any point forward.  So while I wouldn’t change my past for any reason, because that past led me to where I am today, yet the fact remains that I often chose something not necessarily good for me, but that doesn’t have to mean that pattern has to continue through my future.  To do so would have to mean that I did not learn from what eventually proved to be a mistake.  To pick up and do it again would be foolish! One might think possibly this Sagitarius Moon has already led one to a place where we can stand above our mistakes, where the Gemini Sun is still thinking/considering/debating issues we’ve already proven to ourselves, perhaps because we fear moving forward?

The planet Mercury was created by the Hebrew letter Reish, which represents lack.  When one focuses on what one lacks, the natural response is to fill those desires.  Venus might point one towards the need to fill one’s cup with one’s surroundings, where the Moon in Sagitarius representing wisdom knows the blessing of the month of Sivan is in balance between what is physical and spiritual.

From one of the facebook pages I follow, “The Smart Witch,” this blessing was posted…

Apache Blessing

May the sun bring you new energy by day
May the moon softly restore you by night
May the rain wash away your worries
May the breeze blow new strength into your being
May you walk gently through the world and know its beauty all the days of your life.

The letter Reish represents the Sun card in the Thoth Tarot.  Corax.com says, “the sun is the symbol of life and light, for the power that always is generously given without reducing itself.  The sun will shine and give light to the earth to make all life possible…never forget that without the depth of water (emotion) the sun will create a desert.”

The letter reish represents the 30th path on the Kabbalistic Tree of Life connecting the sphere of Hod (8-glory) with Yesod (9-foundation).  The sphere of Hod enables communication.  It enables us to absorb messages, signs, and synchronicities that we encounter so that we can translate and transmit them to others.  Splendor is associated with magic spells and the ability to manifest mind over matter.  In your astrological chart, it signifies your antennae.

Yesod or foundation represents the law of attraction as the foundation of the universe.  It exposes your inner reflexes, how you instinctively react.  While we are on the subject of reacting…I’ve always sort of been on the side of the underdog.  I find something of particular interest in the book’s writing on this sphere; it’s represented by the enneagram/9 pointed star which the book says each triangle locating within the star each represent a particular phase of the moon, right the waxing moon, left the waning moon and the upright the full moon, which it easily follows to be a special symbol for the practice of following the cycles of the moon.  On the internet, the enneagram is associated with the so called “underdog,” as detailed in the biblical story of David and Goliath; generally seen as David, the smaller of the two being victorious over Goliath. But a deeper look might show Goliath, the pagan, being the rightful underdog in the situation, even though his physical strength was greater, because organized christianity and organized religion effectively pushed paganism underground. The six pointed star effectively represents the house of David, whereas the 9 pointed star, the house of Goliath, not only the bloodline of the philistines that the children of israel were told to wipe out, but also that Goliath was a giant, which was of the nephillim, that which was called the abomination created by the so called sons of god mating with human females.  Let he who has wisdom open his eyes to see! Therefore what one reads on the surface is of one story, but what appears underneath is a broader example of religion’s agenda that has cultivated the idea of one man’s superiority over another that has festered for centuries, and like we said earlier, if you’re not on your toes, you too will root for who you thought was the underdog, causing the true free man to be chained in silence!
