Sagittarius Full Moon on May 23rd 2024


In a firework display of attitudes and opinions, this Full Moon in Sagittarius functions as a path towards greater freedom and faith. As always with Full Moons, the Sun and Moon oppose each other, shining light on the hidden elements of our psyches. In this case, we are urged by the Full Moon Sagittarius to ditch outdated belief systems and narratives, and find new terrain. Sagittarius is symbolized by the archer, projecting his arrow towards the heavens, in pursuit of great meaning.  Ruled by Jupiter, Sagittarius represents what we believe in. While Sagittarians are all about expansion and growth, this sign can also be hyper-opinionated and steadfast, with an insatiable appetite for excess. These characteristics should be monitored throughout this lunation, as our desire for extremes can overlook the rules. 

This lunation is ruled by Jupiter, stationed at 29 degrees of Taurus, signifying an elevated sense of values, as we prepare to embark on experiences with deeper meaning in the year ahead. This is a graduation from the lessons we have mastered with Jupiter in Taurus over the past year, where we stagnated in our desires, and focused mainly on what we deemed essential for a fruitful life. Jupiter opposes the Full Moon as it prepares an ingress into Gemini, bringing up big feelings and steadfast opinions. The emotions unearthed are clues, supplying wisdom about areas that require change. We are ready to trade the security and stability of the past year for new scenery and stimulus, even if it requires a leap of faith.

Occurring at 2 degrees on this astrological axis, the Moon in Sagittarius amplifies questions of faith, while the Sun in Gemini signifies the smaller stories we weave together, informing our perceptions and personalities. The Sagittarius is the know-it-all teacher, while Gemini is the steadfast student, supplying us with spontaneity. Sagittarius has the big ideas, and Gemini executes the vision. Both signs amplify our intellect and want us to expand our minds through exploring interests. Neither Geminis nor Sagittarians are fazed by controversy, as they both speak to what they see, even if it ruffles feathers. As these two go head-to-head, opinions can overrule facts, and flurries of sudden information accelerate conflicts.

In pursuit of a great adventure, Sagittarius has little patience for the small details. Debit cards and house keys disappear on the Sagittarian quest for expansion, for we have ventured through varied landscapes in pursuit of boundless adventure. Gemini supplies us with the details and the gossip (who, what, and where), while Sagittarius only wants to know WHY.  We are being asked to move beyond the stories we have adopted as truth, and venture into new possibilities. We can use the energy of this Moon to become observers, witnessing how our inner narratives influence our personal lives. 

 As the Moon in Sagittarius opposes Venus and Jupiter, we receive deep insights about our dealings with others. We have perhaps received the call to seek relationships with a deep purpose- but have we heeded the call? Are we acting out of habit or purpose? Moving forward, our appetite for variety in relationships surpasses the stagnation we have been stuck in. We want to be with people who see our worthiness, and therefore, strive to shake up our surroundings. Called by Sagittarius to move into uncharted territory, this Full Moon may incite conflict, divinely designed to propel us out of dead-end dynamics.

While Sagittarius and Gemini supply the cerebral stimulus, Neptune opens us up to more abstract, intuitive messages. Neptune in Pisces trines Jupiter, supporting us in accepting the situations that have reached a natural end. This aspect gives us access to higher realms of thought and enhances our visualization abilities while offering energetic assistance. It's the perfect time to ponder our personal philosophies, meditate, or reflect through journaling.  Neptunes’ influence can also  cloud our vision, and at times make us feel wobbly and doubtful when it comes to our choices and ideas. We may not know exactly where we are going (it may even feel like we are making it up as we go along), but we take on a kinder, more truthful perspective when looking at ourselves and others.

This Full Moon marks a unique astrological point, as we are caught between two ages, weighing options in two realities and two worlds. As we leave Jupiter in Taurus, we abandon stagnation and comfort, ready to embark on a grand adventure. If we listen, this Full Moon provides us with spiritual direction down an unbeaten path.
