Analysis

What an excellent and abundant Full Moon! The Sun and the Moon are making their monthly opposition to one another in the opposite signs of Gemini and Sagittarius. Both representing ideas, communication, expansion. But Sagittarius is more prone to filtering out the noise and trying to expand the BIG PICTURE. Sagittarians are natural born story tellers. So what’s your story?

This is a time to really sit down and ask yourself; what is it you want? Who or what do you want to be? What do you believe in? Where is your life heading? Your answer may be very far off from where you stand now, and that’s ok.  If you’ve been spinning your wheels, and are ready to make some changes now is the time. 

You have an opportunity with this Full Moon to release and let go of all the baggage and hang-ups. This may help you rewrite the narrative of the story thus far. Dream big, expand your mind and possibly even your horizons. I don’t care how far fetched or crazy it may seem. The Moon is coupled up next to the infamous “Galactic Center Point” at 27 of Sagittarius. This, in lamer terms, is the exact center of our galaxy, the purest form of source. It’s here where we tune into our highest truths and connect to co-create with the universe.  

The catch? There seems to be a whole lot of roadblocks and speed bumps. If you didn’t read this month's horoscopes for June 2019 you may want to. I go in-depth talking about why we are encountering some of these bumps in the road mid-June. Essentially planets in Cancer are being pulled from the opposite sign in Capricorn. There may be a lot of people who are telling you or pressuring you to maintain the status quo. Guilt tactics, fear, and emotions may run a bit haywire. But the beauty of Sagittarius is, they don't mind the chaos. They're very capable of focusing on the silver lining and seeking possibilities on the horizon.  

Be mindful of fear. It’s a funny thing this month. Fear in small doses may keep us in check. Maybe even a fire burning from beneath us. But too much of it can sabotage and paralyze. You may feel yourself slowly shifting into a destined more authentic path. If you have been in the process of making changes in recent weeks, now you’re about to embrace the physical manifestations. If you have been indecisive and bouncing between options, it's likely to be narrowed down for you next month. If you’re having issues being decisive; choose whatever creates space for joy.

This Full Moon Mercury speaks to Neptune, hearing wishes and intentions if you set them carefully. Time spent in meditation and prayer is very much so encouraged. While you may be feeling pulled toward other areas of your life, it’s for good reason. Like Sagittarius’s bow, the arrow can only work by pulling back (Saturn/ resistance) before being shot in another direction. Keep that in mind this month. If you’re feeling it, rise above it. Trust and believe if you surrender, it may further along the process of your spiritual evolution. Being optimistic may help you win big in the months ahead.

  • A piece of Malachite, Citrine, and a loadstone (or a magnet will do just fine)
  • Parchment paper and a pen

Steps:

1.) Burn incense and smudge sticks in a clockwise motion around your meditation or quiet space.
 
2.) Burn cedar for luck an prosperity.
 
3.) Sit down and meditate quietly. Visualizing in your mind's eye where you see yourself the happiest. This can be a physical place, with a specific job, person, situation, etc. 
 
4.) When you feel complete in your meditation, write your visions down on a piece of paper. 
 
5.) Fold the parchment paper towards you three times, each time bringing the luck and expansion towards you. 
 
6.) Place this underneath the crystals on a sacred space. 
 
7.) You may sit quietly and pray if you would like. When you are finished be sure to light the candle and close sacred space. 
 
8.) Hold onto this paper, and re-read it at the end of 2019, closer to the Full  Moon in Gemini to review what you have completed this year. 
 

Or…

  • Review 2019 thus far. See how you’re doing and make adjustments AND give yourself some credit where it’s due. 
  • Make time for a spiritual or religious teacher. 
  • Take a day trip to the forest, or with a horse to channel that Sagittarius energy. 
  • Give offerings to your deities who bring you wisdom, or knowledge

Deities & Demons: Aphrodite
Deities & Demons: Aphrodite

Aphrodite is truly a deity of passion in both it’s creative and destructive capacities, and if you know anything about ancient Greek culture, you know that they adored a dramatic Goddess. In fact, the Greeks loved Aphrodite so much that they dedicated a whole festival to her every year known as Aphrodesia. This of course leads us to the word, Aphrodisiac, which is traditionally a food, drink or drug which stimulates sexual desire, but can be just about anything which serves to awaken the sensual appetite, which is essentially Aphrodite’s superpower...
