Full Moon in Sagittarius June 9, 2017: The Box

Date- June 9, 2017

Degree- 18 degrees

Moonbeams- It’s time to move on……

“Instead of thinking outside of the box, get rid of the box”– Deepak Chopra

Welcome to our Full Moon in Sagittarius. The Full Moon will be conjunct Saturn which is all about doing research to figure out what we’re doing and not doing correctly. Saturn polishes whatever it touches, so we are being asked to work hard in order to see the desired results. Saturn is absorbing much of the emotional essence of this moon, so it’s important to have realistic goals. A great question to ask yourself at this time is “Am I where I’m supposed to be?” The ninth house ruler in Astrology is Sagittarius which rules travel and philosophy among other things- so this is encouraging us to step outside of our comfort zones and known territories. Saturn- the old time God- is letting us know that time is an illusion- everything is always in a constant state of change, so while this lunation will be heavy, know that you are exactly where you are meant to be. The mutable moon is also reminding us that while we feel like we’re in a slump- things are about to become progressively better.

The Full Moon will also be trine Uranus & Eris in Aries so a definite shock to the system will be in store. It’s time to wake up and face the reality (Saturn) of your current situation.

The Full Moon will also be square Neptune which indicates an existential crisis might occur. Use creativity to help your situation. There is a great need to be honest with your higher self- if need be, call upon your guides for help. Now is not the time to get swept away by feelings of inertia. Use the intuitive and imaginative energies of Neptune to think outside of the box.

Saturn is almost always depicted as an old man with a long grey beard holding a scythe. He is the timekeeper- the grim reaper who appears when it’s “time” for a journey to end (a.k.a- Saturn Returns). This Full Moon is a grandfather clock made out of a box- Sagittarius & Neptune are going to allow us to tear open the box we have locked ourselves in and experience a change of scenery…….even if that scenery is merely in our heads (Gemini Sun).

2017 has been tough for many of us. We all entered this 1 universal year with the hopes of experiencing so many wonderful new things, but in order to welcome in the new, we must first let go of the old. 2016 is when the “old” became obvious to us. This year we have the task of literally clearing out of all of the old.  We might have packed away everything that is no longer serving us, but we now have to confront the new. If you want to experience change, then stop hoarding boxes filled with old outdated ideas and recycle them into something positive and inspiring.

The Full Moon in Sagittarius will help us to see outside of these cardboard prisons while the Saturn conjunction will be offering us a pair of box cutters.

Are you ready for change?

2018 Bridal Trends for the 12 Zodiac Signs

Venus in Aries- Anne Barge 

Venus in Aries ladies are assertive in their power and fair better in clean simple classic dresses that will not take the attention away from their self confident auras. Take a cue from Anne Barge’s 2018 Bridal Collection- a nod to the 1960s featuring Brigitte Bardot hairdos, deep v necklines, bows, and classic silhouettes, with a dash of lace, or try a pantsuit from Viktor & Rolf’s minimalist collection that screams miss Venus in Aries- Audrey Hepburn.

New Moon in Sagittarius November 29, 2016: A Light in the Doorway

Date: November 29, 2016

Moonbeams- expansion, happiness, looking into the future, surrendering, dreaming big

What lights your fire? This is the big question hugging this lunation, as we have left the murky waters of Scorpio, which left us with some personal crisis no doubt. If you found this past month in Scorpio challenging, view it more as a renewal rather than a crisis. Sagittarius finds the light in darkness, which fuels its flames. There is nothing more than a Centaur likes then adventure! Jupiter is opposite Uranus which is square to Pluto right now, meaning you must let go and forge ahead with your dreams and plans. Trust the process, as Jupiter’s opposition to Uranus encourages us move ahead which will require confronting some insecurities and shadows (Pluto). Get ready to have a grand heightened perspective of you and your visions. Nothing is impossible during this lunation.

There is also a triple 11 portal opening up with this moon as it is happening on November 29 which reduces to 11, in the 11th month, in a universal 11 month. 11 is the number of enlightenment and inspiration. Open your heart, mind and soul (doorways) to the light during this new moon, and with that, be divinely guided to a new boundless happy place….your future awaits!

Tips

Dream big

Be inspired to push yourself further than you ever have

Magic Mike from Astrolada has a great tip during this moon, ask yourself “What do I desire.” Why do I desire that?

Intention- what does life mean to you?

Look to see what house this new moon will be transiting.Your perspectives in this house will be dramatically changing your future.

 

Sagittarius: Archery & Mastery

As we come up from the descent of the murky waters of Scorpio, we find ourselves in the rebirthing fires of Sagittarius. This season is about having a conscious direction in our lives through the wisdom that higher knowledge is able to bestow upon us. Breaking free from the centaur- which are the animal instincts of human nature and finding your inner truth- the human part, are part of the lessons that Sagittarius teaches us. The more we are able to hone in on our purpose in life the better control we have over our animal instincts (ego, desires, temptations). During this season, it is not uncommon to download visions and have an intense motivation to get things done. There is a strong electricity in the air during this time to create what inspires you. Once it is created, Sagittarius creates yet another vision, and so on. It is now that Sagittarius is able to use the mind as the driving force, and not the animalistic nature of the Centaur. The ruling planet of Sagittarius is Jupiter- the planet of expansion and riches. The more you let go and surrender yourself to your divine plan, the more gifts the universe will bestow.

Using your arrow of wisdom this month, align yourself to your purpose by opening up your mind to knowledge in all its forms. Just be careful not to lose yourself in all the messages you receive during this time. Remember to look for synchronicities, and to trust your intuition during this next month. The sparks that ignite during this fiery season will ground your visions into reality once we enter the sign of Capricorn. Take time during this next month to master surrendering to divine will, and in doing so, have a laser sharp vision of where you need to go next!

 

Jupiter in Libra + My Jupiter Return

Jupiter moves into Libra on Sept 9, 2016 and stays there until October 10, 2017. When the planet of expansion, positivity, and fortune moves into the sign of harmony, beauty, and creativity, we have a beautiful union that will alchemize curiosity, fair judgement, and romance.

I for one am super excited for this transit as it is my Jupiter Return which is happening in my 5th House of romance and creativity. If I look back to my last Jupiter Return in which I was 11-12, it was my most creative year, when I performed in a lot of theatrical works, and created some really cool school projects. It was the year when I really came of out of my shell. This year, at 23-24, I am looking forward to experiencing the other aspects of my 5th House to do with love. A few different psychics and tarot readings I have had, have also foretold of an upcoming relationship and marriage for me in 2017, so it will be very interesting to see what transpires.

Also, since Jupiter is the planetary ruler of Sagittarius, it is also helpful to look to see where Sagittarius is in your natal chart. For me it happens to be my true north node in my 6th House. A True North Node in Sagittarius is about speaking your truth, teaching what you know, and deciding if your life is one of solitude or will include others? I know personally this is something I have been pondering a lot this year, as I do sense many changes coming to my personal life. Commitment is also another huge area for this placement as a Gemini South Node suggests not being true to oneself and being fearful of commitment in a past lifetime. Also, studying Astrology and all things metaphysics is highly encouraged. I’ve actually been contemplating taking some Babylonian Astrology courses…..if I can find them!

The Temperance Card in the Tarot is linked with the North Node in Sagittarius which I find pretty cool, as I did a reading for myself during the Solar Eclipse on September 1st, asking “What is being transformed in my life?” I pulled the Temperance Card. In many ways, this card is about being true to yourself and trusting your intuition and divine timing. It also calls attention to your thoughts. You are what you think. Ultimately, this card signifies the synthesis of the material world with the spiritual. Whatever spiritual work you have been doing, is about to manifest.

I’ve realized that you don’t have to be alone in order to be on a spiritual path. In fact, one can learn the most about spirituality when you have someone to share your life with. My hope and intention with my Jupiter Return is to follow my heart, release self-doubt, and to share my true authentic self with the world!
