On June 2nd there will be a full moon at 11° 49’ of Sagittarius.
According to Raven Kaldera in his book “Moon Phase Astrology”1 this moon is known as the “Priest’s Moon”. It’s a Moon that invites us to think about our backgrounds and the beliefs we hold, not necessarily our religious beliefs, and if we are ready, able, and willing to question them.
This Moon will also be operating on the 3rd-9th (Gemini-Sagittarius) axis of the traditional horoscope, therefore it will have a flavour of the “how I think” versus “how others think” dilemma as well as the reason versus intuition, knowledge versus wisdom etc.
It’s a very enthusiastic Moon so during this short period we may go into overdrive or be physically overwhelmed by the excess of information swirling around us, especially if the Moon touches any planets or angles in our personal chart, and particularly if these are conjunctions, oppositions or squares (above all in the mutable signs of Sagittarius, Gemini, Virgo and Pisces). This is moreover so due to the fact that during the last days preceding the Full Moon we’ve had to deal with a Mars-Mercury conjunction in Gemini which has frazzled the nerves of many.
There may be some rescue for us here though, a place where we can find some comfort; Neptune drifting through its own sign in Pisces is making a square to the Full Moon in Sagittarius and to the Sun in Gemini. This could give us greater intuition, thinning the veil between the real and spiritual worlds, giving some respite from the hectic day-to-day life that most of us lead and the foot-in-the-mouth situations we might have gotten ourselves into over the last week.
So, thumbs up for meditation, walks in the country, listening to our favourite music or just finding a few minutes when we can day-dream.
Full Moons are also known to be times when things climax, when we decide that enough is enough for certain aspects of our life. This is certainly more so when the Full Moon closely aspects any personal planets or angles in your chart and also depends on the houses involved.
Have you any stories to tell about this Full Moon and how it has impacted your life?
