This week is very active energetically with lots of rare and important aspects occurring. Make time to go inward to really focus on what you’re feeling… what do you believe in? what things have changed over the last several months…? This current lunar phase will bring an abundance of clarity along with the opportunities and energy to attract the best possible outcomes and divine connections…
First, Monday’s Full Moon in Sagittarius at 25°53' will be aligned exactly with the immensely powerful vortex known as our Galactic Portal / Galactic Center, also known as the center of The Milky Way… this channeled energy is fertile and ready to be nourished and expanded upon. If we focus our attention in the right ways this week, it will be a powerful opportunity for renewed guidance, understanding, truth, direction and serendipitous opportunities and events… keep reading for full forecast.
Full Moon energy resonates with transformation, completion, cleansing, new realizations, acceptance, inner reflection, promised fulfillment, fertility, illuminating any unresolved problems or blocks, and learning cosmic lessons…. now let’s pair these energies with the vibratory frequencies that align with that of Sagittarius…
Sagittarius energy resonates with wanderlust, joy, new pursuits, travel and movement, seeking wisdom and freedom. Sagittarius is a mutable fire that dislikes routine and being tied down, probably because it makes their adventurous minds restless which can also create detachment / the desire to be elsewhere.
Jupiter is the ruling planet of free-spirited Sagittarius… it’s also the largest planet in our solar system, and is often referred to as the “knowledge and experience seeking” planet. It vibrates with energies of expansion, success, luck, optimism, benevolence, wisdom, opportunity, fortune and abundance...
The Moon is conjunct Jupiter during the full lunar phase. Conjunctions are all about blending, unions, focus and intensity… for all who have been actively working towards understanding, healing, growth and creation in their own lives will receive a renewed sense of inspiration, joy, positivity, and the ability to uplift others. Jupiter is also forming a Square with Neptune at 18° activating new ways of creative problem solving, deeper understanding, and a focus on closer thinking and observing.
Jupiter is also Rx (Retrograde Motion) currently until August 11th, 2019. Unlike a Mercury Retrogrades, things aren’t necessarily chaotic because Jupiter is a slower moving planet so its energies are felt overtime and in more subtle waves…. when in Rx, the energies of Jupiter are introspective and deep… a craving for deeper impact, purpose and meaning grows stronger and stronger with this influence. Depending on how you’ve been navigating the cosmic energies over the last 3-6 months, you will either feel a bit frustrated, or a sigh of relief, renewal of clarity and direction, and a refined sense of trust in yourself and the universe. The sun opposite Jupiter enhances confidence levels which can domino into higher vibratory energies in other areas.
If your sense of understanding and grounding feels out of balance or hazy, this phase will assist you in getting to the truths - the deep truths that really matter… this is a time to internalize and reflect; sharing your heart and truth with others… caring less about what people in general think, and focusing more on finding or connecting with your soul tribe is a huge theme under this influence.
Walking and exercise that is motion / movement oriented, is something that can be very cathartic and cleansing. Sagittarius energy does well with lots of movement and new scenery so this can be particularly helpful if you’re experiencing any polarized emotions, feelings and plans. Getting out in nature for a long, mindless stroll can bring some profound realizations and shifts in your energetic field…. disconnecting from your busy thoughts and low-vibratory feelings and emotions and just being present and grateful of the moment is key to leaving all old energies in the past with this phase… we cannot allow in new energies and opportunities if we’re still holding on to and giving energy towards old, outdated beliefs, relationships, jobs, paradigms and ways of caring for ourselves.
If you are feeling waves of self-doubt, this can actually be a good indication that your ideals and beliefs are actually IN balance… it is healthy to question what you believe in, to feel uncertain at times… that is the beauty in free will / our gift of choice… the universe supports all who dedicate their mindfulness to its power; doubting and questioning is often part of the learning process as well. When a belief system is imbalanced, or “unhealthy” it is extreme and unmovable - refusing to see any other perspectives… or holds us back by limiting our views and opinions.
All of the energy from the aspects and phases just discussed will also be enhanced by a significant T-Square occurring which activates and opens up the Galactic Center / Portal previously mentioned. This is an ideal time to tap into that etherial, divine, magical side of yourself that connects with Gaia and the Universe so harmoniously… quiet your mind, care for and nourish your physical body… you can amplify these feelings and energies through meditation, journaling, intention speaking, immersing yourself in uplifting and passionate music you love, creating or observing art, meditative bathing, infusing water and food with loving frequencies…
Next, Mercury and Mars — late last week, Mars spoke in harmony with Neptune (across from Saturn)…. this aspect inspired optimism, hope, determination, strategy and restraint. We can look at where our impulses were last week (June 9th - 15th)…. What things were driving our desires, passions ideas and feelings?
Now, look at the energies this week (16th-23rd), and notice what shifts or new realizations have occurred…
Mid week, around the 19th / 20th of June, Mercury and Mars meet and stand across from Pluto… before Mercury going into shadow and then Rx until September… this aspect will stimulate insight, thinking, impulsiveness - particularly in one area of your life (again, see your natal chart). There is an intense need for grounding, and focus in order to productively use this intense passionate cerebral energy over the coming months. Setting your intention and clarifying your mindset lays the groundwork for transformational changes to take place.
Power struggles or mind games can arise very strongly mid week so please be mindful of your actions, thoughts, words… words especially hold tremendous power so speak responsibly, kindly, practically and positively aloud… When doing Full Moon Ceremonies / Rituals, I always repeat whatever I say aloud 3x.
Another theme we can tap into during this lunar phase is breaking obsessions and self-limiting beliefs or habits. Highlighting where we have been unproductively pouring our energy, time and power - and where or how to take it back.
One thing we can do to immediately regain power and control is to let go of hurts of the past. Forgiveness is needed. Empathy and compassion remind us of our own sacredness and divinity. We can’t arrive there if we are blocking out this nature… the universe is always trying to get us to embody more loving energy but often our heart chakras are blocked or closed due to old, lingering feelings of resentment or anger. We cannot control others or the way they live their lives, and we shouldn’t want to. We are each on a separate journey, designed to cross and align with the paths of others - but never to abandon your own.
Overall, getting clear on WHY you are here and WHAT is your real purpose and destiny is what this phase can offer clarity on. The Summer Solstice also occurs at the end of this week in Northern Hemisphere; solstices are activations points for the Galactic Center / Portal mentioned previously. The beginning of this activation correlates with the Winter Solstice at 0° Capricorn… so all the work we are doing this summer and fall are preparing us for an abundant and magical 2020. This will be a marathon, not a race, so be extra patient, loving and forgiving to yourself. One of the things I am leaving behind is my Virgo Rising tendency to demand perfection from myself… so much of my art and written work have never been released because of my fear that it’s not “good enough” or not everyone will appreciate it… but truthfully, the lesson I have come to learn with just observing that one tendency, I’ve been more gentle and encouraging with myself. I remind myself that I write and create art for myself and for the people who genuinely understand, love and appreciate me for me… reminding ourselves of things like this is a beautiful way to offset those self-limiting beliefs and change your perspective quickly.
I hope this energy forecast was helpful to you all! You can use this information all week and into next. If you have any questions about your natal chart, just send me a message here!
Love, Light & Abundance,
