Full Moon in Sagittarius ~ May 27, 2010

The Moon grows full in Sagittarius on the same day a major shift in the heavens occur with Uranus' entrance in Aries, a sign he has not occupied since the mid-1930s. Those celebrating their birthday on May 27 or 28 are sure to have an exciting year ahead.

Full moons signify the completion, culmination of what may have been initiated during the previous New Moon in Taurus, which urged us take a look at what we value in life, understand how we define material "security" and improve how we manage our finances, if necessary. This Full Moon in Sagittarius encourages us to expand -- our minds, our vision, our faith, our perception.

The Sagittarius-Moon (heart) opposes the Gemini-Sun (soul) and makes no other alignments with any other celestial bodies. Elsewhere in the sky, however, we remain under the umbrella of the Saturn-Uranus opposition, just as Jupiter and Uranus grow closer to their blending of energies. The heart wants what the heart wants; the soul must accomplish what it must; neither has to explain the "why" to the other. But when what the heart wants opposes what the soul wills, it's a tug of war that gets us nowhere. Hence, the full moon seeks harmony between what the heart and soul wishes. There is a compromise, a common ground, a balance. Once there is balance, we are able to dream big and be optimistic (Jupiter and Uranus) while also grounded by acknowledging the realities of our situation and being open to seeking unconventional ways to resolve issues (Saturn and Uranus).

The full moon occurs on May 27 at 7 degrees of Sagittarius at 7:07 p.m. EDT (North America) and ushers in a succession of big celestial energy shifts. A few hours after the Full Moon, Uranus enters Aries at 9:44 p.m. Then, a few days later on the 30th, Saturn stations for direct movement. The next day, on the 31st, Neptune begins her retrograde cycle. What a fitting Full Moon in the expansive sign of Sagittarius symbolizing endings one phase to welcome in another.

For me, as a Virgo-rising, this Full Moon falls in my natal 3rd house of thought & communication with Sagittarius governing my natal 4th house of family & the past and irritates my Sun (self), aggravates my North Node (life path) and harmonizes with my Uranus (unconventionality). All that really means is that I need to get out of my own way (my Sun) -- shift my perspective (my 3rd house); think outside the box (Uranus); accept that what I must do may not necessarily be what I want to do (my North Node) but in letting go of preconceived notions tied to the past (my 4th house), I open myself to more possibilities that are beyond what my mind could imagine now (Sagittarius-full moon). If I've done the work during the New Moon phase and determined that which I truly value in life, I should be able to purge what's in excess of that and gain balance between the Moon and the Sun.
