Dear Friends,

This Full Moon in Sagittarius brings an awareness that we have been waiting for. Mars has been retrograde since April 17th in the sign Sagittarius. It will retrograde back into Scorpio on the 27th and finish 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 in its Full Phase at 1 degree of Sagittarius. You can see that this Full Moon is joined with Mars at 1 degree Sagittarius. Truth, truth and more truth. We will know more the next week or so than we have in quite some time. Also, Mercury has been retrograde in Taurus since April 28th asking us to review what we want or take an accounting of what we have. Mercury goes direct the morning of the 22nd giving us answers. This is all occurring this weekend. How about that for an alignment of energy available to us so we can get on track.


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 May 5th was in Taurus and it was time to set your intentions for abundance. It is the Taurus New Moon once a year when we appreciate what we have and the need to protect it. Keep it going and look at where you need improvements. This Full Moon will help you explore the many options you can move forward with. This will help you understand what you have and also improve your situation with what will evolve on this Full Moon.

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. The intentions were set about comfort, money and security. Mercury is ending its retrograde in Taurus now and we are fixing a few things. Mercury is in a Grand Earth Trine with Jupiter in Virgo and Pluto in Capricorn. Common sense works for us now. Mercury is stationary direct at this Full Moon. Powerful information is here. Jupiter is in Virgo, and is in opposition to Neptune in Pisces. The need for balance between work and relaxation is necessary. Jupiter and Saturn joined May of 2000 at 22 degrees Taurus to start a 20 year cycle. They are now in a last quarter phase at the time of this Full Moon. The last quarter of a cycle is when you take responsibility for what you have created and in this case since 2000. Saturn in Sagittarius wants us to learn more and Jupiter in Virgo wants us to apply it. Venus is in Taurus at this time pointing us to what is valuable. Mars, the Planet of action, is in Sagittarius retrograde joined with this Full Moon. Mars is retrograde making us redo or regret some actions. Or realizing the need to think before we act. Saturn is also in Sagittarius for the next couple years asking us to open up to greater knowledge and understanding. Saturn is retrograde giving us a chance to look deeper at where we are heading. It is time to direct the show if we want to get things going in the right direction. Sagittarius is the sign that looks to the future and this Full Moon may bring you just what you need to move forward. Mercury, Saturn, Mars, and Pluto are all retrograde at this time. Go slow and with depth.

This is a symbol of the unending availability of everything ever needed for life and experience, emphasized subjectively through the tireless anticipations of the human soul. Implicit in the symbolism is the necessity for giving direction to the restlessness of an over-all consciousness in which man’s immortal being is cradled, and for channeling this into a manifestation of personal energy. The individual prospers as he is self-quickened to his own potentialities, The keyword is IRREPRESSIBILITY. When positive, the degree is an indomitable resourcefulness and a naïve delight in the problems of everyday living, and when negative, pointless irritability and nervous exhaustion. “Sabian Symbols” Marc Edmund Jones.
