Greetings and happy Saturday everyone! I hope you are having a wonderful weekend so far. It feels as though we've been in a little bit of an astrological pressure cooker without breaks for quite a while now - really just turning us into these beautiful facet-grade gems, forming us around the pressure so that we can be better version of ourselves and withstand the pressures by finding peace within.
I was outlining my blogs for the crazy topsy turvy month of July and I was really excited to come on here and write about the next two days to educate on the astrology of beautiful positivity, wishes fulfilled and heightened manifestations as well as some things to be aware of.
What I'll be writing about specifically are Sundays (6.16) heightened Jupiter-Neptune square and the full moon in Sagittarius on the galactic center.
Let's start with the Jupiter-Neptune square - a transit that happens a few times this year, this being the second time. This aspect with these beautifully spiritual planets in their home signs are showing us how to dissolve personal and collective illusions by using discernment and learning when to reign our imaginations in and when it's appropriate to allow our imagination to run wild. Jupiter in Sagittarius is very expansive, optimistic and hopeful while Neptune may be putting a fog around some of the things that we can get super hopeful about- this can take the wind out of our sails but I know based on the degree interpretations (listed below) that this Jupiter-Neptune square occurring Sunday will be easier than the first time this happened this year...
The first time this square happened this year was on January 13th, in between the Capricorn new moon eclipse and the Leo full moon eclipse. In my eyes, this was a time of the Universe breaking us down to build us back up. A lot of things fell apart around that time and I remember it being a very long, cold winter.
Here are the chandra symbol interpretations by Ellias Lonsdale of Inside Degrees of the January 13th Jupiter-Neptune square:
A terrarium filled with carnivorous plants.
Deposited in the jungle, the pit, the open sewer; exposed mercilessly to the worst chaos, multiplicity and darkness the world has to offer. Toughened, seasoned, tempered, under duress. Forced to get it. Magnetizing the collective crises and subcurrents can give you a crash course in what has happened to the world and what must be done about it. You feel especially keenly pulled to participate in situations where anything goes and you must live by your wits or else. This is the fast, hard way to get a refresher course in the tortures and the plagues, in order to come up with solutions and alternatives of the most avid, incisive and irresistible kind.
After a feast of much uneaten food remains on the plates.
Something has ended. It is a memory. And what happened cannot be reconstructed. Something else shall follow, but it will be in a very different vein. Irrationally, persistently, the traces remain and there is regret, there is loss, there is grief. The magnitude of destiny overshadows cycles lived in its afterglow. The power is elsewhere. Vital forces have spent. And in the melancholy mood of looking back so much is missed, passed over, not deemed important. Yet truly, it is what you learn afterwards that counts. And it is the inward reverberations that means everything to the secret soul."
- So we can see with these interpretations that this previous Jupiter-Neptune square was harsher in terms of the illusions it dissolves. Inversely, looking at the much more beneficial chandra symbol interpretations for the Jupiter-Neptune square that is occurring on June 16th:
Rose petals scattered on a path.
Protection, guidance, grace dispensation. Offered a way to move right through the middle of life's labyrinths and stay straight on. Your innate sanctity preserves you against the play of opposites, you stay singular, straightforward. Throwing off complications and conundrums, you stick with what is sweet and eternal. Most essentially, you wear a cloak of innocence, a tightly fitting garment of unworldliness. And as you pass for a fortunate and blessed soul, it all turns out to be true.
White lilies blooming alone in the shade.
Gifted with deep and subtle qualities that are germinating in the subconscious and coming into their own. Transported into inner worlds in order to dream, imagine and conceive from a pure place. Disengaged with phenomenal appearances, staying just apart. Much that goes on here stays under, percolates timelessly. A special karma to cultivate the mysteries, to be different, yet no issue. Deep down in there creative forces work unceasingly and design alternatives for the world to partake in, if the world turns that way."
- This puts us in a much better, more positive and gentle and less abrasive place to see how we can continue to hold ourselves accountable to see things as close to how they actually are as possible. Keep a record of the insights that appear to you as a result of this beautiful mess of a transit.
Full Moon in Sagittarius at 25 Degrees:
This full moon is going to bring a very lucky, uplifting energy, provided we aren't getting away from ourselves in our projections and negative imaginations that the Neptune square could still provide. This full moon is only one whopping degree away from the galactic center- we can expect to upgrade in some major ways that seem cosmically coincidental. I like to think of this full moon as a blessing in the midst of challenge that comes to show us that our hard work is paying off. Here is the sabian symbol interpretation again by the genius Ellias Lonsdale for the full moon:
A small boat with no one in it. It is gradually drifting out to see.
When life is a dream, not too much of selfhood is asked for or welcome. Ancestors, previous lifetimes, collective currents feed the dream, keep it alive. The self hugs a secretive outpost of neither being with nor being against. One of the remarkable things that happens is that spirit can speak and reveal much. One of the habits which easily proliferates here is to take no responsibility for anything. And one of the primal paths through is to drift deeper down in and to let all ego go, yet move with the soul as it is guided to each and every place it is meant to travel."
- The galactic center, right about where this full moon will occur, is going to bring some objectivity and neutrality about what our options actually are to make actual change happen in our lives! What is the next thing that we need to manifest to make our purpose or the dream of our life a reality? The answer is going to come in stillness and it may feel quite neutral - follow that pulse on Monday.
The full moon forms when the Sun opposes the moon - in this case, Gemini opposing Sagittarius. This is the axis of knowledge in astrology - lower knowledge, like numbers, facts and statistics, and higher knowledge - the kind that you gain through experience, travel and spiritual journey. In Gemini season it's very easy to be bogged down in the mind- this Sagittarius full moon is offering us a way out of that.
This axis is also about thoughts versus beliefs and faith. Sometimes it's okay to have faith in the unseen and the unknown- there can be a lot of truth, wisdom and meaning derived from that which we don't fully understand. Major spiritual truth may surface to help assist us along on our path on Monday.
This full moon also presents us with an ability to manifest more instantaneously - be aware of the breadcrumbs that are being dropped on your way as there will be many!
I'd love to go over this Jupiter-Neptune Square and full moon energy by sign- I do recommend looking at your RISING sign first which is determined by the time of birth.
Sagittarius: this full moon is happening in your first house of self! Expect to feel a rebirth, especially around your identity and core as a person is concerned. Don't allow the influences of home and family to take you away from your path and liberation.
Capricorn: this full moon is happening in your 12th house of intuition! Expect some things to come into the light in ways you least expect - you may feel inward on Monday so allow yourself space and time to rest. Be sure to arrive at clarity within yourself before you go to open your mouth.
Aquarius: this full moon is happening in your 11th house of networks and communities! This is a great time for finding or deepening your connection with your sense of tribe. Don't let your money fears or issues of self-worth block you from connecting with people who can assist you in rising!
Pisces: this full moon is happening in your 10th house of career! Your career and workplace matters have been very blessed and will continue to be, provided that you're not letting the foggy transformation you're undergoing cloud your judgment. You are deeply changing and you don't have to know where it is going to use it to contribute in a meaningful, purposeful way.
Aries: this full moon is happening in your house of travel, spirituality and higher learning - the kind of learning that can be gained through experience. If you're thinking of going back to school or booking that trip, do it- especially if you viscerally want to. Don't allow your unconscious fears to take you away from taking that next step to create meaning in your life!
Taurus: this full moon is happening in your 8th house of transformation, so this can shake loose a lot of faulty programming and trauma misinformation that needed to be shaken loose. It's also possible you become conscious of something that has been holding you back for a long time or are able to fall into deep intimacy or vulnerability with another. Don't allow the opinions of your network to interfere with the work you're doing right now - it's important work!
Gemini: this full moon is happening in your 7th house of partnership! This provides an opportunity for love, be it with someone new, yourself or someone you're already engaged in a romantic relationship with. This may look like a realization about yourself and the way in which you attach yourself to people. Don't allow work stress to block your blessings in this way.
Cancer: this full moon is happening in your 6th house of lifestyle, so expect to feel good in your body on Monday. This is going to provide you with insight that you can use tangibly to help you fuel your lifestyle - maybe you stumble upon a new yoga class or a new way of eating that gives you so much life. Don't allow restlessness to take you away from this blessing.
Leo: this full moon is happening in your fifth house of fun and creativity - you're probably going to have the best day out of all of us! You're being encouraged to have a little bit of fun and to find more fun in your environment from here on out. Get back in touch with your creativity - it's been missing you. Rather than getting lost in the waters of your pain, use it as alchemy and create music, art, or whatever you choose.
Virgo: this full moon is happening in your 4th house of home, family and your emotions - you may feel like hiding out just a little bit to hear what your heart needs to tell you. That's totally fine! Allow this day to be for you. Maybe you get some hope or insight regarding a familial issue that has been on your heart. Don't let the mirror that is the outside world bring you out of your deep innerspace on Monday.
Libra: this full moon is happening in your 3rd house of communication - what you speak into existence will materialize quickly so speak in affirmations and don't send anyone any negative energy with your words! Be mindful if you can of your moment-to-moment thought reel, especially as it relates to the health of your physical body because your intention is especially powerful there.
Scorpio: this full moon is happening in your house of self-worth and $$$money! Make your money wishes known and don’t settle for less than you are worthy of! You can definitely manifest at this time as it relates to other people recognizing your value - only if you recognize your own value! It’s easy to let escapism take you away from the practical which is where your manifestations are best directed to make the most of this lucky time.
Thank you for reading & enjoy your full moon!
