Today’s optimistic and philosophical Full Moon in Sagittarius is squaring mind warping Neptune, bringing a pleasantly zen, or for some a slightly psychedelic edge.
This lunation is bringing the issues of truth, idealism and ideology once again to the fore, but in a more uplifting way than in recent weeks which have seen us deal with some of the darker energies of the zodiac.
Sagittarius is the glass half full kind of person always finding deeper meaning and potential in every situation, concerned with the bigger picture and especially the matter of truth. A mutable fire sign, it is adaptable and does not limit it's thinking to the material world.
Sagittarius key words: faith, belief, truth, meaning, religion, spirituality, higher knowledge, possibility, potential, magic, future orientated, optimism, hope, publishing, excess, outdoor pursuits, athleticism, imagination & ideas, freedom and travel.
There is a necessity for Sagittarius to continually broaden its horizons, for Sagittarius is the great adventurer and will at some point need to cross the ocean and explore new lands, but it’s also the great explorer of truth, meaning and the mysteries of the universe.
Sagittarius whilst known as the most positive sign of the zodiac, is actually prone to melancholy when it finds others do not appear to share in its enthusiasm for life, or is denied adventure, and the educational and intellectual materials to explore philosophy. In relationship this fire sign needs stimulating coThere is also a great physicality to Sagittarius, and there’s often an interest in outdoors pursuits. Cycling, running, rowing, surfing, sailing etc as it gives them the all important sense of interraction with nature, travel and freedom.
The fiery centaurs will pursue their broader horizons through international travel, exploring foreign cultures & religions, higher education, academia, law, philosophy and studying ancient wisdoms. Sagittarius is known on an archetypal level as the preacher, guru, philosopher, professor and judge. Whatever it is that Sagittarius decides to do, they will be trying to communicate the bigger picture of their chosen field. They want us to see the overarching truth of the matter and think about the possibilities for the future. They remind us that there is always hope for positive change if we can just separate truth from ideology.
The Full Moon with its square to ‘far out’ Neptune creates a hedonistic layer to the mix, ripe for partying and overindulgence as well as offering an abundance of creative, intuitive, even psychic energies. There’s a hint of magic in the air for those that have the nose for it, and a sense of hope for the future. The harmonious trine of Saturn to the Sun does offer some grounded practicality which can help us turn our inspiration into something tangible.
In summary this is a fun, magical, entertaining and upbeat lunation that inspires travel, outdoor pursuits, higher learning and any form of exploration.
