Full Moon June 09 2017 - 6/9/2017 9:11:00 AM ~ Discovering Truth
The need for clear boundaries becomes a pressing concern with the Full Moon in Sagittarius conjunct Saturn on June 9. The June 9 full moon at 18°53′ Sagittarius Sign is in Ophiuchus Constellation Sometimes called the 13th Sign of the Zodiac, Ophiuchus the Snake Holder gives passion and a blindly good heart. But also waste, seduction, hostility, unconscious desires.
The Sagittarius Full Moon can cut through illusion and reconnect us with our truth. The Moon conjoins Saturn, bringing a potentially harsh but useful reality check to the ways we may have fallen out of integrity with our inner faith and ideals.
The Moon is also square Neptune, resurrecting old feelings from last year’s Saturn Neptune square. With Sagittarius’s naturally expansive attitude muted by Saturn, it may be harder to feel optimistic as old ideals (Neptune) are released to make way for reality (Saturn). When the Moon opposes the Sun in mind oriented Gemini, discriminating between what is real and what isnt is integral to understanding the big picture (Sagittarius).
An event or person may trigger this tipping point by taking away your personal power. In relationships you could react by trying to control and manipulate, resulting in conflict and bruised ego.Self-discipline and emotional maturity will help you through. Try to overcome feelings of guilt about the past. Exposing emotional vulnerabilities and opening up to loved ones will enable the nurturing and closer bonding you might need to overcome any crisis. Jupiter’s station direct shortly after this lunation prompts us to believe in ourselves, even if we don’t know exactly where we’re going.
Jupiter, ruler of Sagittarius, is the presiding deity of this Full Moon and extra powerful as it stations direct just after the Full Moon peaks. Now it’s time to move forward and harness Jupiter’s potential for growth, expansion, evolution, and positive change. It’s time for new beginnings in partnership, in the creation of art and beauty, and in the movement for peace and justice. Ideally, we come out of Jupiter’s retrograde feeling more balanced and peaceful within ourselves, relying less on the harmony of the people and environment around us in order to determine our inner state of being.
