Full Moon in Sagittarius




Greetings Seekers,

This Full Moon in Sagittarius is bringing light to some very very old lessons of belonging.

Come, come, whoever you are.
Wanderer, worshipper, lover of leaving — it doesn’t matter,
Ours is not a caravan of despair,
Come, even if you have broken your vow a hundred times,
Come, come again, come.


This Full Moon is calling us to remember, to forgive, and to release some very old wounds.


Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter, the idealistic, expansive planet who helps us to weave the events and relationships of our lives together into a meaningful tapestry. The gold of Sagittarius lies in the understanding that all languages, faiths, countries, and species share one heart. We are one family, and this life takes us on adventures of building bridges of understanding.

Shadows of Sagittarius are around idealism that divides: religious dogma, national pride, and all forms of holier-than-thou-ness. Take note, however, that denying the validity of religious and cultural heritage, and climbing onto the hippy bandwagon of “it’s all just one, man” idealism can also be a toxic expression of the Sagittarian shadow.

This Moon is conjunct with Mars in Sagittarius, who is now as close to the earth (and as bright) as it gets. Tune in and spend some intentional time with Mars in the living sky tonight (just a bit west of and down from the Moon). This Full Moon is highlighting lessons of Mars’s current retrograde adventure (pertinent Feb-Aug ’16), and is asking us to witness and release unhealthy expressions of its energies in our lives.

Healthy expressions of Martian energies give us motivation and energy. Physical strength and mobility, drive to achieve our goals, and sexual health and vitality are important indicators that Mars is doing well in our charts. Healthy personal boundaries, team player-ness, and integrity in following through on commitments are also good signs.

When Martian disharmony comes up, we can encounter lessons around selfishness and isolation, bullying (giving or receiving), reactive defensiveness, self-centered fear, suppression of or lack of control over our anger, sexual disharmony, and crippling self-doubt. Dwelling in any form of blame is also a good sign that something is out of whack.

How would your Mars like to be polished with this Moon? Have you ever experienced any wounds from the above-mentioned imbalances? (Nahh…)

This Moon is an opportunity to call to the surface old (maybe lifetimes old) wounds around self-assertion and boundary violations that are keeping you from being the active participant you’d like to be in this lifetime. It’s a great time for clearings around old anger and blame for personal betrayals that are still coming up.


Jupiter (the ruler of Sagittarius) is currently in Virgo, connecting two very significant chart patterns. Jupiter is part of both a Mutable T-Square with Saturn and Neptune, and also an Earth Grand Trine with Mercury and Pluto.

T-Squares catalyze massive mobilizations of change (in the Mutable signs it’s mostly about consciousness), and Grand Trines offer spiritual balms of wisdom and understanding (Earth is about embodiment and the proof in the pudding).

Jupiter is asking each of us to take practical steps (Virgo) to connect the big picture dots of our lives: How does the rubber meet the road with our larger “missions,” and who are the co-creative compatriots who are travelling with us now?

Lifetimes-old connections may be re-surfacing at this time as Mercury stations direct (Yay!) in Taurus (part of the Grand Trine!), and outside-of-time connections are catalyzed in mysterious ways that lead to practical expressions.


Let the inspirational wind of Jupiter’s larger-than-life vision fill your sails on this beautiful Full Moon, and let go of old wounds that are keep you from living the full life you came here to live.
