This full moon is exactly the energy we do NOT need right now. How Sagittarius of me to say that out loud.
Yes, the big fat full moon is in Sag this week, and while we need calm—the sky is on fire, and to make it an even stronger influence, it is also an eclipse.
The Mutable T-square in the heavens is not helping. Whenever there are Mutable signs all hanging together, we tend to feel anxious and/or hyper; that energy has our nervous system jacked up.
The T-square looks like this: the Sun and Venus are in Gemini, the Moon 180 degrees opposite in Sagittarius (and there we have a full moon) and Mars and Neptune in Pisces at a 90-degree angle to them both—as they all fight for attention. Mars always wins. We have confusion (Pisces) and lots of energy (Mars).
And by the way, the rest of this year is not very promising either. While Mars is in Pisces right now, squaring the Sun and Moon, come July—Mars enters Aries and stays there for the rest of the year. Oh my—the squares continue, but come July, it will be in a Cardinal pattern.
‘What does that mean?’ asks the novice astrologer. Well, this full moon has A LOT of Mutable energy, meaning you might be feeling scattered, nervous and unable to find relief.
I watch my nervous system during the whole month of Gemini attentively. I notice how my attention span shortens as my need for space increases. I rode my bike the longest I have ever done so yesterday because I was seeking large open spaces. This is so Gemini and so mutable: “Let me out of here.”
There is nowhere to go. I have an idea: go outside. Outdoors is the best solution. (Just do not disobey the curfew in your town.) Deep breaths. I look at Mother Nature and her endless timeline and remember: this too shall pass.
Remember 30 years ago when there was so much unrest? In 1992, there were the Rodney King riots, which was the last time Saturn was in Aquarius. The time before that (1961-1962), we were in civil uproar yet again. No surprise. Saturn in Aquarius is here for the next few years.
May I use this Moon in Sag to be blunt? We are going through the birthing canal. We are changing. A revolution is at hand. We need it.
We got fat. We spent too much, flew around too much, took everything for granted, and we were mean, racist and self-centered. Look what it has taken to wake us up: a virus, a protest, and what’s next?
Are we awake yet? I think not. So Sag of me to say.
Every time I think I am awake, I remember Aristotle’s line (he had Moon in Sag): “The more you know, the more you realize you don’t know.”
Einstein, too, had a Moon in Sag. He was quoted to say: “The more I learn, the more I realize how much I don’t know.”
We do not know what is happening. But we do know what to do.
When I am most uncomfortable, I go outside. There is timeless peace in Mother Nature. She is here to soothe us.
Let this full moon unsettle you enough to remember to seek the answers in the elements. (The first chapter of my book, The Missing Element is called ‘Crisis.’ I knew this was coming.) The elders knew the importance of the respect for the elements.
I always seek wisdom and calm from the wind, the Sun, the ocean and the trees. I encourage you to do the same.
The full moon in Sag increases voltage.
I have Saturn in Sag which means I am responsible to speak truth, even when it’s not easy.
We are being tested. Can we hold steady while the winds of change throw around old, dated, sad stories? Can we update our way of being based on truth, honesty, and integrity?
Go outside—the trees are waiting to talk to you. They are the Sag wisdom keepers who have seen it all. No matter if it’s up or down, wisdom is waiting—regardless of the sound.
Do not misinterpret this newsletter to be a doom and gloom message. The truth can set us free—so says this full moon—and the truth: we needed change badly.
Here it comes this summer, this fall, this 2020…it’s time to be real.
Standing by with a calm space in my heart.
I know the truth: we are being watched.
We are loved; angels are standing by.
We, as a species, are growing like a weed. It may hurt—unless we consult wisdom and nature. Therein are the keys to our liberation: trees, mountains, water, sunshine, wisdom and faith.
Here I am handing you the last two.
Trust: life has your back. Lean in.
Sending you so much love,
