As the summer solstice quickly approaches and the Sagittarius full moon lights up the sky, we find ourselves at the halfway mark of 2014 (can you believe it?). In general, full moons are a time of heightened energy, particularly of the feminine variety, and they are best used to express our sensual, creative and intuitive sides. But before we get there and play, we have to take care of the details. Yep. Details. We are in the midst of Mercury Retrograde that began June 7th and will end July 1st. When Mercury the planet of communication is retrograde we want to slow down and double check everything for snafus. Be intentional with your words, and pay attention to your intuition. As you know, I love Mercury Retrograde– it’s a fantastic time for hearing more clearly and developing a deeper understanding of all that’s occurring in your life. Be certain to slow down and pay attention.
Given that this full moon is in Sag, our freedom seeking, adventurous spirits will be all the more rallied by this potent lunar energy, and I know it’s calling you out to play. At the same time, this full moon promises a positive outcome if you apply a little effort before abandoning work for recreation. As Jupiter, the planet of good luck, fortune and abundance (also the ruler of Sagittarius) trines taskmaster Saturn, the planet of discipline and structure, a harmonious relationship is created between the two, which suggests that any work we do now will be elevated.
Simultaneously, Venus the planet that rules all things feminine is opposing Saturn, suggesting that a little extra elbow grease could go a long way, too. Warrior energy Mars also comes in to play as it opposes revolutionary Uranus, which ignites our creativity and pizazz.
Basically, what this all means is that before you throw caution to the wind and head out for a night on the town, you should first tend to the projects that are most meaningful to you. Take advantage of this auspicious time to channel your creativity into your work; I promise, it’ll be time well spent.
Take a Walk in The Full Moon Light
Full moons are heightened energy and offer us a potent powerhouse fuel, so be certain to get out tonight and connect with the moon’s light. As women, we are hard wired to respond to the moon. When we spend time connecting to lunar energy it can have a healing effect on our menstrual cycles. I particularly love spending time outdoors during full moons and soaking in the lunar rays.
Full moons are great times for both celebrating and luxuriating. Maybe you want to rally with friends or go out dancing on a hot date. Maybe want to soak in a hot Epsom salt bath and allow your body to absorb some magnesium while you meditate on the heart’s desire you are currently conjuring. Whatever it is, you plan to do tonight, make it special.
Next Saturday when the sun enters Cancer, we celebrate the summer solstice here in the northern hemisphere – marking the half way mark of the year. Holy. Moly.
So, tell me, dear one: Are you on track with your intended goals for the year?
As we move towards the summer, a season where we’ll further blossom and bloom and get our feminine groove on, it’s time to further stake claim to your desires. Allow la luna piena to bring you all the more closer to your heart tonight so you can hear loud and clear what she’s asking you to conjure, create, and collaborate on.
This evening, plan to spend some time connecting with your desires and figure out what you desire more than anything at this particular point in your life. Then, trust that voice of wisdom emerging from within. She’s guiding you with expert insight.
Until next time, all my love,
