Full Moon in Sagittarius May 29 2018
May 29 2018
The Sagittarius Full Moon on May 29th is a call to adventure and initiation into greater truth and freedom. Opposing the Sun in airy Gemini, the light of the mind, the fiery Sagittarius Moon illuminates our soul’s wisdom, the knowing we carry in our hearts and in our bodies. This lunation inspires a higher perspective on our life’s path, allowing for new possibilities as we create our future.
Adding fuel to the Sagittarius fire, the Moon forms a grand trine with Chiron in Aries and the North Node in Leo. Fire can burn away illusion, and the truth that emerges has the power to heal. We liberate the healing gifts of this trine when we trust and act on our inner guidance, and share our truth with love and vulnerability.
The Full Moon fire is further intensified by its conjunction with Antares (at 9° Sagittarius), the red star at the heart of the Scorpion constellation. Associated with Mars and Jupiter, this potent star symbolizes fearlessness, readiness for action, and success in war.
Jupiter, ruler of Sagittarius, is retrograde in Scorpio, suggesting that the fierce fire activated by this Full Moon is best channeled into confronting our own inner demons. We’re called into our emotional depths to uncover and face our fears, and root out the belief systems that hold us back.
Jupiter’s trine to Neptune in Pisces opens doorways to higher consciousness. Our receptivity to the invisible, subtle realms is heightened, and our dreams and intuition have important messages for us. We can make strong progress in our spiritual understanding and growth, and it’s helpful to take time for rest, meditation, and just being. Venus occupies a third water sign, Cancer, forming a water grand trine that facilitates emotional and sexual expression and intimacy
