The Freedom to Stand in your Truth
So how’s your truth barometer going out there, blossom?
Sagittarius is a sign greatly aligned with truth and with the Black Moon (also in Sagittarius) sitting conjunct this particular Full Moon be prepared to want to honour yours.
You may find (especially if you’re particularly sensitive to energy) that your BS radar is particularly fine tuned this month as well.
If you’ve been feeling suppressed or held back, the build up to this full Moon could find you struggling with that and wanting to let it all out.
Inspiration and Motivation
The warm and radiant Fire Grand Trine (Moon, Saturn, Leo North Node and Uranus) is helpful in that it is infusing a dose of courage, faith and motivation into making changes at this Full Moon.
What makes you feel vital and alive?
Do more of that.
Honour Spontaneity, Adventure and Your Vision.
Be Truth, Be Open.
Pursue Growth and Expansion.
The T square involving the Full Moon, Saturn and Chiron may indicate that painful experiences, illness or pain are the driving force behind or maybe this pain is coming up for you as you move towards being all that you want to be during this life time.
Old wounds, low self confidence, an inability to feel ”seen’ for who you really are or a lack of courage may present themselves.
Do you feel free to express exactly who you are?
Ultimately, it is you that is responsible for your emotional well-being, so please listen to what it is that you’re needing right now.
There is something that you innately know about who you came to be during this lifetime.
Are you pursuing that?
Perhaps someone or something has appeared within your life (or will do so as we get closer to the Full Moon), who will act as a teacher or guide for you at this time.
Or perhaps you need to seek out that person.
Who can help you with forward progress?
The ruler of this Moon is Jupiter; currently travelling through Libra and stationary at the time of this Full Moon, so expect some intensity if growth is required in one or several of your relationships.
Sometimes growth requires discomfort and a relationship cannot be it’s best without some emotional honesty and the freedom to be yourself.
If a relationship is not respectful of your freedom or your needs, it could feel stifling right now.
At the time of the Full Moon, Mars will be in Cancer forming an almost exact sextile with Venus in Taurus conjunct Uranus.
Perhaps the desire to rebel is conflicting with the urge to belong to or to care for others.
Can you meld the two together?
Is there a way to make it work and to cooperate without losing the true essence of who you are or your sense of freedom and space?
Sagittarius is also about wisdom and ultimately that means your own inner wisdom.
Do you have a strong, innate connection to your inner self/your inner wise man/woman?
Do you tune in and listen to what your heart desires?
If you’re feeling lost, lacking in purpose or uninspired it could be time to take up a spiritual practice.
Whatever draws you; whether that be yoga, meditation, going church or a regular group, which nurtures your spirit and strengthens your intuition, could prove greatly healing right now.
Toxic Emotions/The Shadow Side
Remember that Full Moons tend to bring out the shadow, so watch for the shadow traits of Sagittarius, which may present themselves at this time – Moralistic Behaviour, Judgement, Excess, Clumsiness, Irresponsibility, Tactlessness.
Toxic Emotions, which serve to hold you back may also surface now – Fear, Guilt, Lack, Duty…
These are Ego-based emotions that keep your energy low and letting these emotions drive your actions can make life seem dull, miserable and burdensome.
If you’re sensitive, it may also be worth considering having a News break or a Social Media Sojourn.
It’s amazing how a reconnection with the real World around you can restore inner peace and give you more time to do the things you love.
Choosing Self Love and Vulnerability over Fear
With Venus in Taurus at this Full Moon, why not choose Self Love and to elevate your Self Worth?
Yes, it may feel frightening to stand in the true essence and light of who you are and it may feel especially vulnerable, but that vulnerability is often your greatest asset.
After all, you cannot be yourself whilst you are fearing what others’ will think of the real you.
Do things that make you feel grateful, that nurture and love your body and which increase your overall sense of well-being.
Even if at first, that feels a little ‘selfish’.
Working on you is actually one of the least selfish things that you can do, because when you’re functioning from a full cup, it increases your capacity to be there for others, to raise the vibration of the Planet and to be a source of light and joy for those around you.
Do this and you’ll likely tap into the positive aspects of Sagittarius – Faith, Optimism, Honesty, Spontaneity and Adventure.
In Honour of those Leading the Way
This write up would not be complete without honouring the amazing people who refuse to stay silent against wrong-doing in our World.
The courageous souls, who become ‘whistle-blowers’ or who stand up against the might of the system for those vulnerable souls, who do not have a voice (including our animal kingdom).
There are some mightily inspirational people out there standing in their truth and bringing through the most amazing changes to make the Earth a better place.
At this Full Moon, please consider lighting a candle and praying for them and all that they do. It’s no easy task; especially when they often risk persecution, ridicule, disbelief and sometimes danger.
Please be mindful of what you believe in; especially News reports, which often seek to divide and conquer.
Your heart always knows the truth, so tune in often and always question what doesn’t feel valid.
