The next Full Moon on June 9th brings with it an explosion of expansiveness and confidence. The Moon will have reached its fullness in the sign of Sagittarius, urging us to reach for the stars and beyond what we imagine to be possible. And Jupiter, the planetary ruler of Sagittarius, harmonizes with both the Sun and Moon, amplifying the expansive energies of this lunar experience.
Astrology teaches that there is darkness and light in all things. The expansion and confidence of Jupiter’s influence lead us to unparalleled positivity and achievement, but if you have ever filled a balloon with too much air you will know what can happen when we expand beyond a reasonable amount. Economists are well aware that too much expansive growth can lead to undesirable results, and we have seen this time after time with stock market bubbles, real estate bubbles, etc.
Fortunately this Full Moon contains a strong Saturn influence to help keep us tethered to the ground as we allow our spirits to soar to new lunar heights. Saturn can be restrictive; its influence can feel discouraging and even sometimes depressing when it is connected to the Moon. This could lead to feelings of despair or failure, but if you utilize Saturn’s practicality and mindfulness at this time it can be a wonderful ally, ensuring that your dreams and ideals hatched and fertilized at the Sagittarius Full Moon are grounded in the real world with lasting permanence.
When Henry David Thoreau said “Go forth confidently in the direction of your dreams” he must have been under the Sagittarius Full Moon!
