Full Moon in Sagittarius, Friday, June 13th – “For a Good Time, Call....”

A Full Moon in Sagittarius embraces life.  I’d go so far as to say, it embodies life.  The lunar influence is extremely strong in the sign of The Archer where it engenders adventure, luck and expansive thinking.  Sagittarius rules the ninth house, the seat of higher learning and philosophy.  If Mercury in Gemini is a quick mind, then Full Moon in Sagittarius is a perpetual lightening-round of intellect.  

Moon in Sagittarius sees life in Cinemascope, briskly taking in information from all senses and rapidly formulating a plan for action. This Full Moon compels activity because The Archer is a fire sign.  Think about tarot’s suit of Wands – a perfect road map for Sagittarius. ( See blog: “Lights, Camera, Action” ) Ace is Archer’s spark of inspiration, or awareness. Two of Wands is the call to adventure, that irresistible urge to look past the familiar and see potential. Seize the Three of Wands and, like Sagittarius, you’re heading off to see what’s past the horizon. June’s Full Strawberry Moon is a moon of believers and achievers.

the 13th.  Cue organ music and mist.  Here’s the deal.  Like Sagittarius we must take a look at the big picture.   June’s Full Moon occurs at 4:14 GMT on the 13th.  That means if you live in America, your Full Moon occurs on at 12:11 a.m. ET on June 13th. All other American time zones have a Full Moon on June 12th. Sorry guys.  Numerically, June 13, 2014 adds up to eight.  In tarot, eights are about movement.  (See blog: “Crazy Eights” ) This theme is spot on for Full Moon in Sagittarius regardless of whether you live on the east coast, west coast, or somewhere between.  Look for movement in your life from the 11th to the 15th.  There will be incoming messages and events that can spark positive changes for you, if you let them.

Moon in Sag people (that’s all of us to a certain extent during this Full Moon period) are the life of the party. They are out-going, witty and are not only found at the center of the action – they’ve usually started the action in the first place.  During this Full Moon weekend look for spontaneous gatherings.  If you’re meeting friends for drinks, don’t be surprised if people you don’t even know pull up chairs to your table, or you, quiet out of character, do the same.  Don’t look for passionate love this weekend.  Sagittarius is about answering that personal call to adventure, although you may find someone whose affinity for escapades matches your own. If you wish to participate in someone else’s grand scheme, that’s great, but The Archer’s influence makes us more willing to go it alone if no one is inclined to join our quest.

Lest this Full Moon sound too perfect, let me give you a couple of minor warnings.  Sagittarius has a tendency to not simply speak the truth, but blurt it, warts and all.  Use diplomacy.  If you don’t, you risk a red face next week and having to repeat, “I’m so sorry, I don’t know what made me say that to you,” over and over and over.  Also, Moon in Sagittarius tends to believe in the absolute triumph of its own luck – and this is a lucky Moon, no doubt.  However, avoid leaving everything up to random chance.  Proceed with a purpose, fully informed and with mental clarity.  Watch out for over-spending. Moon in Sag pushes its exuberance for life towards excess from time to time.  Live for the experience this weekend instead of for possessions and you’ll be fine.

Full Moon in Sagittarius brings a gift of seeing the scope of your own life and recognizing its potential.  Take action, no matter how small.  Small acts, carefully combined, can change the direction of a planet.  Be brilliant.
