The Full Moon in Sagittarius takes place on May 29th 2018 at 8° Sagittarius
The Full Moon in Sagittarius is one of the most auspicious Full Moons of the year. If Uranus’ move into Taurus has left you shattered, the Full Moon in Sagittarius will restore your faith.
Jupiter, the ruler of the Full Moon, forms a beautiful water trine with Neptune in Pisces and Venus in Cancer. Water signs are the feelers of the zodiac – they find meaning in emotions, in psychic insights, in intuition.
Having both benefics – Jupiter and Venus – in a trine is just WONDERFUL. And Neptune will add a touch of magic to an already artistic and idealistic mood.
The Full Moon itself is not engaged in any strong aspect. Not that you need MORE change in your life now, right?
You know the scenario: something turns your life upside down. But after the storm is over, you can see the beautiful rainbow.
If the lunar cycle started in a dramatic fashion (the New Moon on May 15th literally coincided with Uranus’s epic ingress into Taurus), the Full Moon in Sagittarius will come to reveal the bigger picture. There is always a bigger picture.
“Everything happens for a reason” – you’ve probably heard this saying so many times that it has lost its meaning. For religious people, it is just another way of saying “It’s God’s will”. Science inclined people refer to it to describe the relationship between cause and effect. For spiritual people, the ‘reason’ has to do with learning important lessons about life.
The Full Moon in Sagittarius is exactly about finding that reason, about finding that meaning. Sagittarius is the truth seeker of the zodiac.
We have a natural tendency to reject randomness and chaos, and seek meaning and purpose. From the beginning of times, people searched for a meaning, for something to believe in.
From Aztec rituals, sacrifices and ceremonies, to divination tools, to religion, people tried to deal with uncertainties, to manage risk, and get an answer to their concerns.
The need to believe in something greater than oneself is deeply rooted inside each one of us. It is in our DNA.
Sagittarius is traditionally associated with teachers, gurus, traveling, higher studies, religion, philosophy – generally speaking, with everything we do to expand our horizons and find answers to the big questions of life.
And this pull to keep on seeking, to keep on exploring, comes from a deep need to find that ONE thing, that magic formula, that perfect theory that can explain everything.
Sagittarius deeply believes that behind personal experiences and relative truths there is one single truth. A theory of everything.
As a fire sign, this pursuit is deeply spiritual. As a mutable sign, Sagittarius relentlessly seeks for the truth everywhere.
There is a part of you which will never be satisfied with easy answers. That part of you will push you to keep on searching, to keep on looking for ultimate answers and definite truths.
That part of you will never settle. Trying to keep it quiet will not work. We are inherently programmed to experience the world, to grow and expand.
The Full Moon in Sagittarius is an opportunity to honor that part of you, to embrace the seeker of truth inside of you. To express gratitude for the wanderer who always wants to go to new places and who will always stretch you out of your comfort zone.
You may or may not find that ultimate truth, but this doesn’t mean you shouldn’t spend every single day of your life trying to get closer to it. Life is a journey – keep walking. Be comfortable with that part of you that feels uncomfortable and restless.
There will eventually come a time when you will realize you don’t have to keep on looking for the truth outside yourself. You will know when you have found it.
We shall not cease from exploration. And the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time. T. S.Eliot.
The teacher comes when the student is ready. When the student is truly ready, the teacher disappears.
