This is the second Full Moon in Sagittarius in the last 30 days. Obviously the focus is on Sagittarius qualities. This is all about education, religions, the need to know and understand that which is different from what we know. It is time to get out of a box we have been living in and look beyond so we can grow. This brings an awareness we have been waiting for. Mars went retrograde on April 17th in the sign Sagittarius. It returned to Scorpio on the 27th of May and finishes its retrograde at 23 degrees Scorpio on the 29th of June. We are putting things together so we will be ready to move forward on the New Moon in Cancer on the 4th of July. At the time of this Full Moon Mars is at the last part of its retrograde and we have gotten the message. At least I hope so. Mars will soon move forward and re-enter Sagittarius on August 2nd on its journey forward satisfied that we have cleared the air. Saturn has been patiently waiting in Sagittarius for Mars to get on board. Mars will join Saturn in Sagittarius on August 24th. This Full Moon, at the very end of the sign Sagittarius, may be making us an offer we can’t refuse. Let us learn now. The Full Moon on May 21st was at one degree of Sagittarius joined with Mars retrograde.It brought about events that are an example of what people believe. We had the celebration of Ali's life coming from love and unity. We also experienced tragedy coming from hatred and obsession. We now have the closure from that with a Full Moon at the last degree of Sagittarius. The ultimate! Do we understand that we have step up our part. Love!!!
A FULL MOON will occur on JUNE 20, 2016 7:02 AM EDT at 29 DEGREES SAGITTARIUS 32 MINUTES
A Full Moon is a time when things bear fruit. It is a time to release and let go of what has run its course. It is when things come to a head. It brings the results of the intentions you set at the New Moon. The New Moon on June 4th was in Gemini joined with Venus and it was time to set your intentions for new ideas and communication. We needed to avoid gossip and concentrate on what we needed to know. A whole new list of options are available where they were not before. It is the Gemini New Moon once a year when we feel free to look at what is right under our nose. It is time to be aware of your surroundings. It is also a time to check on your own attitude about what is next. It is a starting point that leads us to incredible expansion. Keep it going and look at where you need improvements. This Full Moon will bring the options you can move forward with. This will help you understand what you already know and also improve your situation with what will evolve on this Full Moon. It is all about growth.
Jupiter is the ruler of this Full Moon and it is in Virgo. There is a need to apply what we know to bring about better conditions. We realize now that there is so much more. This Full Moon opens our minds to learn new things. The Planet Jupiter in Virgo, drawing our attention to our health, work and routines. Are you secure enough to begin to plan bigger things? Mercury is in Gemini in opposition to Saturn in Sagittarius and we realize we cannot stay where we are. We are gathering information that will help us expand our financial base. It is a time to be open and flexible. You are at the mercy of what is available. Keep your eyes and ears open for opportunity. Saturn is in Sagittarius demanding that we have knowledge to back up what we are promising. Saturn is also promoting the need for change because patterns in your life may have grown stagnant. We are ready for this! The Planet Saturn in Sagittarius is squared by the Planet Neptune in Pisces. This is exposing what is weak in the system. It could be you or it could be what you depend on. The need to strengthen ourselves is obvious.
THE SABIAN SYMBOL: THE POPE
This is a symbol of human excellence on the side of the special values exalted in the various social and political hierarchies of modern civilization, and of man’s ambition as entirely inadequate except as he is able to meet some exceptional need of everyday experience and proceed to dramatize whatever abilities he may have developed in climbing to the position in which he finds himself. A person is strengthened within himself by the appreciation he succeeds in winning from his fellows. The keyword is SANCTITY. When positive, the degree is an effective and spectacular sacrifice of self in some enduring service to the race at large, and when negative, inordinate love of self-display and surrender to a lust for power. “Sabian Symbols” Marc Edmund Jones.
