Frequent reality checks may be necessary on the Full Moon at 18° 53′ Sagittarius, 9 June 2017, 06:11 AM PDT. That’s because Neptune in Pisces is squaring the luminaries and the urge to dive deeply into denial could be strong. Be careful to stay on the high road for this lunation!
Sagittarius is bold, blunt and often an eternal optimist. These qualities are emphasized by Jupiter in Libra widely sextile the Sagittarius Full Moon. Will we be able to find a way to be upbeat but still grounded? Saturn is very widely conjunct the Moon and if we’re willing to follow his guidance and uphold our responsibilities, we may escape unscathed. However it will be an uphill climb because Jupiter, Sagittarius’s ruler, is involved. Jupiter is fond of the whole “go big or go home” philosophy and the Sagittarius Moon loves it too.
Pluto in Capricorn has a subtle but powerful influence on both the Gemini Sun and Sagittarius Moon. He is exactly semi-sextile the Moon and inconjunct the Sun. Gemini and Sagittarius both love to disseminate information. On one hand Gemini is a data magpie, darting around constantly grabbing shiny bits to share, while Sagittarius is a professor at heart who loves to pontificate on the big issues. Capricorn, on the other hand, is noted for being rather reticent because being in control of the data flow is one way to stay in power. What we may see are attempts by the powers that be to interfere with free, easy access to information, whether it is parents setting up restrictions for their children or the government attempting to clamp down on the media.
On a more cheerful note, Venus in Taurus enjoys a harmonious sextile to Mars in Cancer. Venus is overjoyed to be in sensual, earthy Taurus again, it is one of her happy places and she will be doing her best to draw Mars in Cancer out of his protective shell. Both signs are wonderful at expressing affection through their actions rather than words. Speaking of words . . . chatterbox Mercury in Gemini is semi-sextile both Venus and Mars. This Mercury often doesn’t know when to shut up and over sharing with a potential lover could nip a promising romance in the bud. Remember Venus in Taurus loves to receive chocolate and flowers more than pretty words.
It is interesting to note Jupiter will be stationing direct at 13° 13′ Libra about an hour after the Full Moon in Sagittarius. Even though it will be awhile before Jupiter picks up speed going forward, the fact it is direct may bring about changes in attitude and an uptick in good luck. If you have personal planets and/or Ascendant from 12° to 14° in the air signs (Gemini, Libra and Aquarius), this may spark a pleasant new beginning for you.
There is no reason not to fully enjoy the exuberant excitement of this Full Moon in Sagittarius. It is the perfect time to dedicate ourselves to being forthright and honest with ourselves and others while steering clear of the pitfalls of righteousness. There is nothing wrong with dreaming big as long as we keep one foot on the ground. It may be hard with all the headiness in the atmosphere but only imagine what marvels we can manifest if we do! Exciting times.
