Full Moon in Sagittarius ~ June 7, 2009

Full moons signify the completion, culmination of what was initiated during the previous New Moon. This Full Moon in Sagittarius encourages expansiveness, spiritual ideals, nurturing our aspirations, wisdom, and being enterprising. While the New Moon in Gemini encouraged us to shift how we think in order to attract desired energies toward us, this Full Moon highlights the link between our thoughts/ideas and the inspiration behind them.

This Sagittarius-Full Moon and Gemini-Sun T-squares Saturn (challenges), reminding us of our realities and showing us how we can be achievers despite the obstacles we face; rise above our limitations.

Surrounding this full moon are harmonious alignments between Mercury (mind) & Uranus (mover and shaker) and Venus (relationships) & Pluto (intensity). Our minds are stirred with brilliant thoughts and innovative ideas, allowing for unconventional solutions to everyday issues. Our relationships, including that with the self, intensify as we find depth and meaning to our connections.

Additionally, we remain under the triple conjunction influence -- Jupiter (faith; ruler of Sagittarius), Chiron (healing), Neptune (enlightenment). Our individual efforts reap collective rewards; heal the self, inspire others.

Be reminded that Mercury just ended his retrograde motion and continues to be in the shadow period until June 15, where he revisits the path he's previously taken. During this shadow period, events or unresolved issues surrounding the period from April 24 to May 6, offering completion, reflection, closure, or resolution.

This full moon occurs at 2:12 p.m. (Eastern) at 17 degrees of Sagittarius. Sagittarians born between December 5 and 11 or those with personal planets/house angles within at 17 degrees of Sagittarius may feel the influence of this full moon stronger than others.

For me, this full moon falls in my natal 3rd house (communication) and aligns with my natal Moon, Mars, Saturn, and Uranus, highlighting my own innermost desires (Moon), the motivations behind them (Mars), the limitations surrounding their realization (Saturn), and the reminder to "think outside the box" (Uranus) and see the bigger the picture (Sagittarius).
