The Full Moon in Sagittarius occurred earlier today (Friday, June 9 at 7:10 AM MDT). Since the moon is applying to Saturn in Sagittarius there is quite a bit of tension in this full moon! We may be filled with wanderlust and we may want to just get away from it all but ultimately we are called to face our duties, choices and responsibilities under this full moon.
The Sabian Symbol for the degree of the full moon is “Pelicans Menaced by the Behavior and Refuse of Men Seek Safer Areas for Bringing Up Their Young.”. This is quite a powerful image, and it brings to mind the following questions:
Sometimes things must come to an apex (full moon) before we are willing to make the changes needed in order to insure a safer and more peaceful life for ourselves and for our loved ones. While this symbol talks about “young” in terms of offspring we can also see this symbolically as any new projects, hopes, dreams or ideas that we are nursing in our lives. Others can sometimes kill our dreams through their own negativity or disbelief. If you are facing such a situation in your life then it is time to walk away. You cannot change others but you can create a sanctuary for yourself. The time is now to do that.
The position of Saturn helps in letting go. Saturn asks us to cut ties with anything that isn’t properly serving us in our lives. In some ways Saturn is the ultimate ascetic. What is necessary and what is extraneous? Saturn helps us let go of things we don’t need and if we are reluctant to let go Saturn makes things difficult in order to force us to see the wisdom of letting go.
Under the influence of this full moon take some time to think about what your true priorities in life are right now. And then think about your long term goals in how to maintain and improve those priorities.
