Happy Full Moon In Sagittarius!

A Full Moon that occurs between May 22 and June 21 will be in Sagittarius. This Moon is helpful in matters of:

  • Understanding
  • Adventures; both mental and physical.
  • Travel that broadens the mind.
  • Expanding conceptual horizons.
  • Long-term planning

Saturday, May 21st our beautiful Luna will be in the fiery sign of Sagittarius. The restless and enthusiastic energy of the Sagittarius moon pushes us in the direction of seeking adventure, change, and motion. It just so happens that this will also be a seasonal blue moon (no, the moon will not actually appear blue) this means it is the third of four full moons in a single season. The Full moon in this sign is a time for philosophy, metaphysics, traveling, studying, and freedom from responsibility. This moon's energy brings the need to feel free of restrictions, and to be spontaneous. The restless and independent nature of this astrological sign is to offer us the gift of exploration, and with Mars now just two days away from its May 22nd opposition,  this bold planet will appear brighter in the night sky than it has in over 10 years! Mars is an action planet, one which the ancients called the god of war. Mars energy is associated with energy, passion, determination, and will. With Mars being in retrograde since April 17th, and it's energetic influence partnered with our Sag full moon will be felt by everyone. This energy can be productive or destructive so it's important to Review, rest, relax, and revise. It's the Universes way of saying "step back & slow down"

Warm & friendly vibes can make this a good time for seeing new places, encountering different people and relating to a changing environment.

Moon Wellness (health):

The Moon in Sagittarius affects the extended vertebrae (sacrum and coccyx) as well as thighs. At this time massages are particularly beneficial and can loosen up the muscles. Stiff thigh muscles and deep-seated contusions can be quickly cured with long soaks in Epsom salt and soothing herbal mixtures that smell great and relax the senses. Take this soak a step further by lighting a purple candle (the color associated with Sagittarius) and close your eyes for a healing moon meditation.

Sitting in silence,  breathe in the sign of Sagittarius and place it in your heart's center. Seeing the arrow of aspiration sitting in your heart,  know that you must aim it towards the highest that is within you. this is the goal. Allow the color of purple to surround you as you breathe that color into your being. allow yourself to see the blue of mental nature joining with the red of emotional nature. Uniting head + heart in one pointed focus. May the soul infuse all of us with it's love, light, and power. Carrying an inner silence throughout your day as an observer. Be mindful of your thoughts, words, and deeds.

Moon Magic: Cast spells offering: protection, decision making, personal power.


 The Full Moon in Sagittarius is the best time to throw a party, and the full moon is an excellent time to hold a group ritual. The spiritual and psychic forces are very evident now and the desire to connect is strong. Honoring the full moon can be integrated into parties, or a group meditation with silent witness to the moon being our center. Ritualized touching/laying on of hands for healing. chant together using syllables or sounds of power.
