FULL MOON IN SAGITTARIUS

The Full Moon is when the Moon opposes the Sun at the exact same minute and degree. On Tuesday, May 29, 2018 the Moon in Sagittarius opposes the Sun in Gemini at exactly 10:20 AM EDT at 08 degrees 10 minutes. Download the 'Full Moon in Sagittarius' chart wheel for this aspect and lay it over your personal natal chart, line up the Sun Signs to see where this aspect is affecting your chart. When the Moon opposes the Sun, this is your 6 month check-up of the New Moon in Sagittarius that occurred back on Monday, December 18, 2017. The New Moon represents 'fresh starts' and 'new beginnings' while the Full Moon is your 'approximate' 6th month check-up to that 'thing' you began back then. You should be well on your way to make that 'thing' a reality.

THE MOST IMPORTANT thing to notice out of this Full Moon is there is nothing odd, unusual, tough, challenging or difficult touching it. Look closely at the 'Full Moon in Sagittarius' chart wheel. In my charts, all blue lines are sextiles and trines. You will see this chart wheel slathered in blue lines. The green lines in my charts are oppositions and quincunxes. The Full Moon is a natural opposition between the Moon and the Sun, so this green line is a given. It has to be there in order to be a Full Moon (on the chart wheel).

You will also see two (2) green dashed quincunx lines that are joined by a blue dashed sextile line. This is what creates a 'Yod' aka 'The Finger of God' which points to a specific place on the chart wheel that says, "Lookie, lookie! Right here! Look at this and pay attention to it." In this case the Yod is pointing directly to Saturn in Capricorn. This Yod is saying, "Stop looking at everyone else and trying to find fault in them. Stop criticizing other people because of your own feelings of inadequacy. Instead, turn these feelings of inadequacy inward and look at your own inner wisdom." Saturn in Capricorn is all about self-discipline and work ethic.

This Yod wants you to have the self-discipline to go the distance. Saturn in Capricorn is diligent, dependable, impersonal, structured, and unemotional in a working situation. This Yod wants you to stop talking about it, stop bragging about it, stop giving yourself gifts of celebration for something you should be doing anyway. This Yod is pointing directly to 'the responsible worker'. This worker shows up on time, every time. Saturn in Capricorn has a tremendous work ethic that is incomparable to anyone else. So you will want to lay this chart wheel over your chart to see where Capricorn at 07 degrees is located in your chart because that is where Saturn in Capricorn will be impacting you under this 'Yod' and Full Moon in Sagittarius.

The Sun and the Moon actually aren't even planets if you want to get technical. The Sun is actually a star and gives off the energy of testosterone (masculine) and the Moon is a luminary (satellite) which gives off the energy of estrogen (feminine). So here we have a tug of war between mommy and daddy or two opposing energies that are strongly masculine and feminine. You may feel this energy in a relationship or within yourself. You may be trying to find your inner masculine energy or your inner feminine energy.

This is pretty much an easy and lucky Full Moon for simple reasons. First, Sagittarius is a lucky sign, which makes the Moon by itself a lucky Moon. Second, a Full Moon involves the opposition of the Sun and the Moon in opposite signs. In this case, this Sun is in Gemini and the Sun has several trines and sextiles connected to it, just as the Moon does. In fact, there are only sextiles and trines with absolutely no challenging aspects standing in its way. Again, the only opposition here is between the Moon and the Sun, which has to be present in order to create a Full Moon.

Mercury in Gemini on DrStandley.com

Also occurring today, Mercury moves out of Taurus and moves into its natural ruling sign, Gemini. This is the sign of the salesman, the self-promotor, the great communicator, the marketer, the gadget guru, the juggler, the one who shows up here, there and everywhere. Gemini is also the opposite sign of Sagittarius. While Sagittarius is the talker, Gemini is the listener. While Gemini can certainly talk up a storm, you will also see Gemini fall completely silent and you can see the cogwheels churn in their brain as they are processing information. Do not push on this Gemini energy as it is processing or you will get answers or output you really don't want to hear. Leave the machine alone while it is thinking.

This Full Moon is accompanied by only one (1) aspect today and that is the Moon sextile Mars. This Moon carries the emotional force that is necessary to carry out projects projects, tasks or challenges to completion and success. It is difficult not to win when this sextile is present, which makes it perfect under the umbrella of the Full Moon in Sagittarius, which pulls back its bow and aims up high at its intended target. This lunar aspect is all about winning and making money. Have you ever heard the phrase, "If it isn't a hell no, then it's a hell yeah!" Well this aspect is a, "Hell Yeah!" Under normal circumstances, Mars would be out to fight, since it is a warrior, but with this placement, Mars does not want to fight, it just wants to win. Any underlying desire to fight will be kept under calm control because this aspect does not want to fight or argue with people. Moon sextile Mars on DrStandley.com

The energy behind this placement is infectious, contagious and personable. This aspect definitely plays well with others, as it is enthusiastic, which causes people to respond well in return. There is eagerness and excitement, along with impulsiveness that accompanies this energy. People respect those with this aspect in their natal chart. Even though this aspect is impulsive in nature, there is a sense of respect that comes with it. Even if you were to lose your cool, grudges will not be held because you will choose to work out your issues maturely and move on.

This Sagittarian Moon has the motto, "I perceive therefore I am" or "I see therefore I am". This energy reminds me a bit of Pisces (the visionary) because fish have an eye on each side of their head. Fish have a 180 degree vision on each side of their head, multiplied times two means 360 degree vision. This is why Pisces is the visionary. Sagittarius is symbolized by the centaur (half man, half horse) also has an eyeball on each side of their head. Horses heads are very much like fish heads with an eyeball on each side of their head. The Sagittarius field of vision is much like a Pisces (who rules the Ocean) but the centaur (horse) rules the global community. Sagittarius receives 'visions' translated into "I perceive therefore I am" or "I see therefore I am". While Pisces is the dreamer ruling sleeping dreams, Sagittarian's rules dreams (as in goals) and daytime visions of those goals that they can see in their mind's eye. The centaur can always see further (around) from where they are standing.

The Moon in Sagittarius should automatically make you think FREEDOM! You may have heard the phrase, "What you see, you can achieve" or "What you perceive, you can achieve". Sagittarius is the goal setter of the zodiac. In fact, the motto for this Sagittarius energy is, "I see/perceive therefore I am." The centaur pulls back its bow, aims super-duper high and shoots the target with the arrow. Sagittarius is a freedom Lover, which cannot and will not be corraled or tamed or up on their hind legs they will go. If someone tries to lock down and coral Sagittarius energy then they will jump the fence and head off to greener pastures. Sagittarius needs freedom with relationships, money, time, fun, travel and decisions. As the gypsy traveler of the zodiac, Sagittarius is always on the go, go, go. Sagittarius needs freedom with relationships, money, time, fun, travel and decisions.

Sagittarius just wants to have fun being the most optimistic and jovial sign of the zodiac and always open to new adventures, learning and experiences. Weeeeeeeeeeee! While Sagittarius is most definitely the sassy one, who is frank and blunt in their manner of speech, but it does not give Sagittarius a license to speak their mind inappropriately or be hurtful toward others. Being blunt or frank does not mean hurt others. That is just bad manners or bad etiquette. The Sagittarius who engages in a hurtful manner of speech will only have those around them thinking, "Oh just . . SHUT . . UP!" This would be the unattractive Sagittarius in the herd. Every sign has unattractive character traits and Sagittarius has theirs as well. No sign is immune to character imperfections.

Sagittarius energy is guilty of incessant talking and filling in the cracks of every sentence with a word. There is not one second that does not have comfortable silence when Sagittarius is around. When people start backing away or looking around for something else to focus on, then that will be Sagittarius's first clue that enough has been said, and quite possibly, too much has been said. When looking at your Sagittarian energy in your Natal Chart or Solar Return it would be wise to recognize when you are on your hind legs shadow-boxing with yourself or someone else for that matter. Sagittarius energy has a knack for lecturing. But, as I always say, "If people want to be lectured to, they will pay for it." So either get paid for it, or dial down the lecture. Now go look to your Natal Chart or Solar Return to see where Sagittarius shows up for you and where you act and react just like a Sagittarius. Also read below to see how this affects you and your Sun Sign as an entire population of people.

All about Aries on DrStandley.com

For Aries, this impacts your 9th house of the dreams, visions, goals, ambitions, new adventures, new experiences, higher-thinking mind, religion, college, higher education, teachers, legalities, brothers and sisters-in-law, philosophy, prophecy, philanthropy, all things "foreign", intuition, long distance journeys abroad, churches, airlines, vacations and international commerce.

You may be getting some intuitive hits that are of global proportions. Make certain you are aware of your ideas right now because you are the 'idea person' of the zodiac and these ideas only mean something if you put them to Good use. You can use these ideas for yourself or give them or even sell them to someone else. Yep, you can make money off your ideas but that's only if you do it.

Today's Full Moon is all about broadening your horizons, adventure(s) and extended education. Do not be surprised if you hear about an opportunity to travel, which could be linked to your work or desired career. It could be that you decide to get out and about under your own steam and if that is the case, then by all means start researcing airfares. This could be a trip abroad or at the very least, a trip across the country because this 9th house is about distant travel, not local travel. There is some loose ends that has to do with something 6 months ago that you need to complete and wrap-up.

All about Taurus on DrStandley.com

For Taurus, this impacts your 8th house of the wealth of your spouse or business partner, joint resources, support from other people, insurance, legacies, other people's money, stocks, bonds, taxes, inheritances, loans, mortgages, financial windfalls and wills. It also includes, surgeries, spirituality, astral experiences, the metaphysical realm, transformation, regeneration and covers death or endings (rebirth), sex and an element of legal matters.

This Sagittarian Moon could actually have you acting out in a jealous, cruel or insecure way. You may not be able to see this behavior clearly but others will. Monitor your emotions because the louder you get, the more your relationship or financial insecurities may be seen. It's kinda like opening your wallet and showing all of your credit cards. Remember, as I have written to you before, showing all of your credit cards doesn't reveal money, it reveals debt. Same goes with relationships, watch what you say because you could be revealing that which needs to be kept secret. Everyone does not need to know your personal business.

Today's Full Moon naturally opposes your sign, but is still lands in a money house. This is where money shows up that is not easily seen that comes through other people. It could also be that you have a secret, perhaps linked to matters of the heart, and now this could be in the spotlight. It may be that you are on the brink of making a secret relationship official and if that is the case then go for it and enjoy the openness of a committed relationship. This Full Moon is calling attention to something that began 6 months ago that now needs to finalization.

All about Gemini on DrStandley.com

For Gemini, this impacts your 7th house of contractual relationships. This house also rules unions, lawsuits, contracts, partnerships, marriages, agreements, and open enemies with the public. This can be partnerships in business, marriage or a committed relationship that is a live-in arrangement. It also includes long-term associations, the animus (underlying passion or force), the relationship between soul and personality.

There will be hell to pay if someone even tries to keep you from running free. Just because you absolutely need to maintain your freedom and independence does not mean you cannot be committed in a relationship. It is up to you to teach others about you. Do not make someone else guess about you because that is not fair in relationships. If you are reading this about a Gemini, just know that a Gemini cannot be 'told' what to do. You can ask something of them, but you absolutely cannot demand that a Gemini do anything. Believe me, I'm a Gemini, I know. Unless you are the Gemini's boss and giving them a paycheck, it is likely the Gemini will not take orders from you.

Today's Full Moon could have to do with business partnerships or romantic relationships. If you have something to get off your chest, then now is the time to do it and make an agreement on a better way of operating in the relationship. On the flipside this is also a great opportunity to get closer and seal the deal when it comes to a partnership that has been on the boil for some time. You may also hit a relationship milestone, where something BIG occurs in the relationship that takes the relationship to the next level of commitment and/or understanding.

All about Cancer on DrStandley.com

For Cancer, this impacts your 6th house of daily life, physical health, hygiene, food, work ethic, employees, service, skills, servants, clothing and sickness. It is about the service you give to others and your daily habits, routine, the working environment, pets, animals and service.

This is actually a really Good day for you to get a lot accomplished. Even with everything else going on you can get more accomplished than most people do in a day under this Sagittarian influence moving your emotions. Stay on task and then reward yourself later. Those who are in service to you today (clerks, servers, volunteers) make certain you say, "thank you" because it's the right thing to do, not to mention it's the nice thing to do and these service people choose to do what they do voluntarily. In other words, they are serving you. Look them in the eye and say your "please" and "thank you".

Today's Full Moon means that you need to take the time to think about your body and your health in general, as well as your habits, routines and work ethic. Certainly, your body is your temple but lately you may not have been treating it as such at all. Now is the time to focus and see how you can make some changes to your overall lifestyle, fitness regime and diet. Start small and build up as this will be much easier than an 'all or nothing' approach. Upgrade your daily habits, daily grind and daily lifestyle.

All about Leo on DrStandley.com

For Leo, this impacts your 5th house of pleasurable activities, parties, romance, dating, Love affairs, playtime/acting, sensual emotions, Lovers, parenthood and sexuality, creativity, artistic pursuits, hobbies, recreation, procreation, babies, pregnancy, children. It also includes leisure, games, sports, self-fulfillment, joy and bliss.

You may have your fist in the air over Love today and this is not such a bad thing. In fact, you may have your fist in the air saying, "I will Love whoever the hell I want, no matter anyone else thinks." You may be in Love with someone who doesn't meet the approval of others or you may have your fist in the air for someone else in that position. There is a fairly big chance that you will throw caution to the wind and Love without hesitation or reservation. Conversations about romance, dating, intimacy and relationships will likely occur.

Today's Full Moon will blossom in your 5th house that is associated with romance, joy, fun, bliss and children or your own child-like behavior. As Full Moons are usually about wrapping up unfinished business, you may find that a creative project comes to fruition now, or that you are able to announce it to the world to great critical acclaim. It could also be about romance and lovers so you may want to have a talk with someone close to you to work out exactly what the two of you are doing here. If that sounds like your situation then get talking. This could lead to great things Leo.

All about Virgo on DrStandley.com

For Virgo, this impacts your 4th house of home and family. It describes your roots, your heritage and your private life. This house also rules land, property, residences, domestic affairs, psychological foundations, biological inheritance and place of abode.

Oh boy, Virgo could end up mouthing off today and being a little too loudly critical. Make certain you are not the one in line complaining loudly only embarrassing yourself and generating a flurry of negative vibes. I know, you are 'just sayin' and don't really intend to be hurtful, but yet, you are. Just watch your mouth. This is a wonderful time to entertain and have people over to your home. Virgo's do enjoy a lot of space in their home for plenty of people to gather. With Sagittarius in this 4th house, you need expansive pastures 'inside the home'. Invite friends and family over for a loud and fun day.

Today's Full Moon reveals there could be some warm and fuzzy vibes around family members and it may be a great chance to get closer to the ones you Love. This also relates to your home (residence). Some Virgo's are thinking about selling the family home, while others are sprucing up and finalizing a project that was started 6 months ago. There has been a juggle of sorts with regard to home and family projects and now its time to stick with the plan and complete what you started. Procrastination may have set in and took you off course. Get back to it!

All about Libra on DrStandley.com

For Libra, this impacts your 3rd house of communication, writing, mental abilities, sales, marketing, media, advertising, publicity, campaign, blog, website, lower education from 1st to 12th grade, early learning, immediate environment, short journeys, local travel and travel within your own country. It also rules neighbors, siblings and extended siblings such as cousins, nieces and nephews.

Communication and transportation are highly prominent for you as this Sagittarian Moon rolls through your 3rd house. Your coming and goings could be going so fast that you may surprise yourself how much territory you can cover when you drive and talk on the phone at the same time. Just make certain you use the speakerphone in the car and DO NOT text and drive. You could end up learning a hard lesson if the Universe catches you doing it. Don't make me say, "I told you so" because getting caught by the Universe will end up costing you some freedom.

Today's Full Moon could be related to your first community of people (siblings, neighbors, first cousins). You may also catch a great deal on a communication device, such as phone, computer, GPS, etc. You may find that you want to get closer to these people or it could also be that the toxic people in this group of people need less of your time and not more of your time. Check your style of communication, including your body language because it can't always be about what they are or aren't doing. Check yourself!

All about Scorpio on DrStandley.com

For Scorpio, this impacts your 2nd house of value systems, physical possessions and money, personal self esteem and talents. This house also rules your personal earnings, bankers, budgets, money that "you" make, material resources, value system, monetary gains and losses, security. It also rules what think about sex. Basically this house is about your self-worth.

Easy come, easy go could be your financial motto under this Sagittarian Moon. You may have the attitude of "you can always make more money." While that is certainly true, it doesn't mean you should be haphazard with money simply because you want financial freedom. Even those who win the lottery do not really have financial freedom because more money means more responsibility and will only magnify any issues with money. If you want more money, then prove to the Universe that you will be more responsible with money.

Today's Full Moon in your 2nd house opposes your natural ruling 8th house. This Full Moon wakes you up to your finances, either through a rude-awakening or through a spiritual awakening. Chances are for most Scorpio's this is a spiritual awakening since Jupiter is in Scorpio until November 8, 2018. The knots in your personal finances are becoming untangled and you can start breathing a sigh of relief. Perhaps you need to call in a professional to help you manage your money. Scorpio is a money sign and you do 'know' money. Use this knowledge to think 'bigger, better, more'.

All about Sagittarius on DrStandley.com

For Sagittarius, this impacts your 1st house of identity and how other's see you. This house also rules the personality, your attitude, how you see the world, how you look, appearances, your worldly outlook, and self-awareness and how you respond. It includes the self, ego, anima, projected image, expression of inner motivation, soul purpose, initial approach to life and your aura. Take special note that this first house rules your soul's purpose and your inner motivation.

An optimistic, jovial and adventurous spirit is Sagittarius' natural personality. You may feel more happy-go-lucky than usual as you see the world with a whole new perspective. Remember your motto is, "I perceive therefore I am." You can sense your Life changing, especially where money is concerned, which is a Good thing. There is still something lingering that either rubs you the wrong way or that keeps you in a state of frustration. Obviously a conversation needs to take place to settle this once and for all. You may also need to retrace your steps and make an apology so that you can let go and let God.

Today's Full Moon asks if the image you project really working for you or is it causing others to back away. This is a great time to do something like get some new headshots taken and spruce up your online profile. This could also be a time when you launch that project that you began 6 months ago and let fall through the cracks. This is an exciting time so make sure you use this energy so that it works for you because this energy wants you to succeed at the goals and intentions you made for yourself 6 months ago. Get busy!

All about Capricorn on DrStandley.com

For Capricorn, this impacts your 12th house of the hidden realm, subconscious, past, pain, karma, jails, institutions, hospitals, mental health, finances of friends, secret sorrows, fears, self-destruction, large animals, skeletons in closet, self-undoing and self-injury. It is about your hidden strengths, weaknesses and what you don't want others to see or know about you, unredeemed karma and selfless service to humanity. Refrain from letting this house frighten you because it is necessary that you look at your own self-undoing in order to keep yourself on the straight path.

This 12th house is naturally ruled by Pisces, which rules the past. Think deep about this dear Capricorn because this is what is causing you to stall like the Billy goat often does on a ledge. Capricorn only knows two directions in life (up and forward). Staying the same, is not really a direction at all. You are directional by nature and must move those knees. I mean this literally, because if your knees are not bending at all, then you are not even WALKING! You are the ladder climber of the zodiac and if you get hung up on the past, then you stall because the knees are not bending. Walking is a perfect example for you to get your rear in gear. If you get stuck on anything, go for a walk! Enough already! Your time has come, get a leg up!

Today's Full Moon asks, "What are you hiding?" There could be some issues buried under the surface which you need to let go of and this could be a time when you decide to undergo something like a cleansing ceremony that lets you heal from past wounds. Perhaps there are some family members that you need to talk to again and see just what pieces of information you don't know, that you thought you knew. This could change everything about what you thought you knew and believe. It's time to address 'behind closed doors'.

All about Aquarius on DrStandley.com

For Aquarius, this impacts your 11th house of friends, groups of people, social acquaintances, former relationships (ex's), organizations, children's organizations, alliances, fraternities, memberships, money from the employer, finances of employer and stock exchanges. It is also about your hopes, wishes, dreams and the future.

This is the perfect time for you to make connections with people you know who may be in a higher position or an position of influence and affluence. These are two keywords for you during the Sagittarian Moon. This may be include people with money, people with clout and people connections. Aquarius is well known for having many friends because you rule the 11th house of friends, so this Sagittarian influence is really a lucky point for you. This can really throw your ambitions, goals and future excitements into the next realm of manifestation. You are a group person, so make certain you make group and organizational connections, especially during this lunar influence.

Today's Full Moon shows this is a time of clarity. If there are people in your inner circle who simply do not get along then now is the time when you can talk it out and perhaps decide which tier of friendship they 'get to' be in. Each tier or circle is one step closer or more distant to you. It is you who decides who is a True friend (1st tier) or frenemy (last tier). Take your time looking at the energies of others to make sure you don't act impulsively.

All about Pisces on DrStandley.com

For Pisces, this impacts your 10th house public life. This house also rules fame, notoriety, occupation, career, ambition, government, military, chief executives, business life, goals, ranks, political position, status, standing in the public eye, position in society. It shows your standing in the community and social status. It can reflect your attitude to parenting.

Oh wow, you could really come across as bossy and demanding while this Sagittarian Moon rolls over your 10th house of 'the boss' and authority figures. Make certain you are shooting at your own goals and ambitions and not shooting off at the mouth over someone else's goals and ambitions. You may have a lot to say because of your belief systems. If no one else is being heard, then you could be talking too much, which turns into a lecture and no one wants to be lectured to unless they are paying to be lectured to.

Today's Full Moon reveals that you are ready to pursue a new venture when it comes to your career and give it your all. You may be launching an online project that will be very lucrative in the future but the kicker is, you have to actually put energy into it. A dream is but a dream if you don't take action. Whatever it is, this Full Moon brings you the energy you need to advance in your career. At the same time, you may be dropping a few clients, ideas or projects that have proved not to be worth the time you spend on them.
