Full Moon in Sagittarius | Be Your Truth

Full Moon in Sagittarius: Speak your truth, not to defend your truth, but to express your authentic voice.

Whenever we speak, we have the choice to speak our truth either from the mind or the heart. Still, wherever the truth may come from, its essence is always embedded within us, unaltered and enduring. Some might even say that the truth is subjective, because we have our own personal values and views about what we believe to be the truth. But where would that leave us? Nowhere, really. As the Earth has always been a place of diversity and inclusion. A place of growth and change. A place where humans, animals, and nature collaborate, coordinate and coexist. What will ultimately matter in the end is what we do with what we believe to be the truth. Whether it elevates us and others in our world, or whether it brings us more feelings of separation and fear. We now have the capacity to move beyond our past limitations and outdated beliefs, and to rise above negativity to follow our highest vision. Trust our gut.

Happy Full Strawberry Moon! The Moon in Sagittarius is opposite Mercury Rx, the Sun and Mars in Gemini, marking an especially vibrant and vigorous Full Moon in the sign of the Centaur. Ruling the 9th House in Astrology, Sagittarians seem to be in a lifelong quest for truth and meaning in their lives. They are quite energetic, adventurous, curious, and are often guided by their optimistic outlook and positive disposition. They can be pretty clumsy, blunt or insensitive at times, but they generally have good intentions, therefore have others' best interests at heart. The name Strawberry Moon comes from the peak harvesting season for strawberries in North America, which occurs in June. However, strawberries aren't native in Europe, which is why it is also known as the Rose Moon, a time when roses bloom.

With the Moon forming a square to Neptune and opposition to Mercury Rx and Mars, something has got to change, it all starts from within. Something we do or say could determine how our week unfolds. We have an instinct on moves to make so that we know when to share our thoughts. Do not hesitate to say no when it feels right to do so. Our real strength will be revealed when faced with a choice. There is an excitable energy in the air that could find us going in circles. Take a deep breath, and make our list. Once we have done that, we'll be able to bring our focus back and make the right decision. Another good way to beat those blues and confusion would be to sleep them off and wake up the next day with a new way to see. Know that sometimes it is not so important how we approach a situation, but that we put energy, action, and intention into achieving whatever it is we want to achieve. 

The Moon is also forming a trine to Uranus and Jupiter, and we are reminded that one of the wonderful things about life is that we never stop learning. This is a great time to set new goals and to take control of those plans we have for the future. The Full Moon brings us the necessary boldness and initiative to make commitments in areas we are ready to start with. Our ideas will make way for more expansion and opportunities to explore new directions. Our imagination will be working at a higher speed than usual, helping us to see things from a different perspective. This brings a realization that we may have had a change of heart that has altered our way of thinking. And now we are ready for a lifestyle that will fit our new passions and interests.

Stay focused on the road ahead, but keep our windows open to catch new glimpses
of inspiration and magic along the way.
