Full Moons contain the energy of release. As the Moon becomes more and more darkened, the things you want to release become less and less obvious. Then set your intentions at the New Moon for manifestation of your desires by the light of the Full Moon; Full Moon release, New Moon manifest, and so this cycle repeats itself month after month. Taking advantage of these cycles can be very helpful if you are mindful and purposeful in setting your intentions with trust in a benevolent Universe. You have a 3 day window of power; the day before, the day of, and the day after.
This particular Full Moon is strengthened by a few other factors in the coming days. The Cancer solstice this year is on the 20th at 3:34 p.m. PDT. This occurs less than 12 hours after the peak of this Full Moon. Solstices are energetic windows. At that time, there appears to be a reduction in the magnetic field of the Earth, allowing a greater influx of cosmic radiation to penetrate our atmosphere and also our psyche, giving us access to greater understanding and wisdom. Then on June 29, Marsfinally goes direct at 23° Scorpio. This has been a powerfulretrograde contributing to the unrelenting global chaos and unrest.
The sign of Sagittarius, is concerned with our philosophy and convictions; Gemini deals with objectivity and perception. The idealistic side of Sagittarius delves into ever-expanding knowledge and far-reaching horizons of understanding, tolerance, and the realization of one’s life purpose. Its shadow leads to feelings of entitlement, and excuses for excess of all kinds. The bright side of Gemini remains open minded, aware that there is always more to learn and that listening is as important as speaking. The shadow side knows lots of facts but has little wisdom, talks incessantly but doesn’t listen and allows its mind to control its soul. This Full Moon in Sagittarius/Gemini shows us how to determine the philosophies that resonate with our hearts and where we need to walk our talk.
Remember that we are living in a time of great change (Uranus in Aries square Pluto in Capricorn). Be mindful of your intuitive impressions about what you see and hear. Don’t be led to follow blindly any philosophy that leads with fear. This is a time to lead with love and with a desire to help our fellow beings. It is time to break up old outmoded structures and to lead with bright and noble ideals for the future. The light is always stronger than the dark.
