Sagittarius Full Moon May

The coming Full Moon at 1° Sagittarius.... is also in relationship to Mars that's been retrograde, that is opposite Venus, and then Mercury turns direct the next day.
Big stuff.

Jupiter-ruled Sagittarius is wonderfully expansive; full of life, joy, adventure, possibilities, and the highest of ideals.
A Full Moon is a mirror, a culmination, and the brightest light to expose everything.

Finally, because this Full Moon lands at just inside Sagittarius at 1°, next month's Full Moon is also in Sagittarius.

Something enormous this way comes, and it gets the spark of background/hidden action, and then, communications go forward. Those with planets between 26°- 6° will feel it the strongest.

The Truth is coming out folks. Sagittarius Moon and Mars will drive us to find our personal truths and whatever feels authentic.

We, and others, are full of big opinions, especially about core beliefs, life perspectives, and even political and religious viewpoints.

This expansive energy, and then Mercury turning direct, means that anything that has felt stuck will be propelled forward, so hang on! Especially anything to do with messages, conversations, and contracts, or our way of thinking.

Mars retrograde is heading back towards Scorpio on the 29th, so before he dives into those murky waters again, use this Full Moon to find the purest, most truthful clarity on your situation that you can manage. Don't forget, with Mercury and Mars having been retrograde, the opportunity that we've had to learn, is that our approach and our perspective needed to change.

A Full Moon means the Sun and Moon are opposite each other. So it's a time when we feel pulled between two opposing forces, and our growth comes from balancing the two.
Mars and Venus are also there being opposite, so the tug-o-war is double-powered. This will likely be an old conflict with someone of the opposite sex.

The Moon in Sag wants to soar, taste freedom, to feel that anything is possible, and has an emotional need to follow a meaningful and principled path. The Sun in Gemini is concerned with fast facts, networking, information for it's own sake, having fun, and connecting with others.



The Mr and I are re-watching the BBC Rome series, and there's a main character in it that is a pure son of Jupiter. He is so highly principled that there is little room for flexibility. His idealism becomes self-righteousness, and he loses out in relationships.

Life is messy and all the shades of the rainbow. Theoretical ideals are wonderful but we are also here to experience earthly form, and the pleasure of being alive. If we only ever seek the ideal of everything, we miss out on the many delicious experiences that only exist in the nuances of life.
Likewise, if we remain on the surface, merely touching the superficial layer of everything and everyone, we cannot grow into the full experience of being human.

Find balance between;
Ideals and the present experience
Profound connection and simple human interaction
Living morally and living joyfully.

Venus conjunct the Sun will be in Taurus, so this is our anchor, our grounded energy. Venus Taurus wants sensual pleasure, peace, and feeling grounded in what one truly values.

The Sagittarius-Gemini axis is of the traveller. We will find a journey to embark upon. Whether spiritual or literal, we're ready to move ahead. Yet we also need to not rush, as details are still being worked on, and we need to keep our feet firmly on the ground.

Sagittarius is in best form with a definite direction or vision. Use this Full Moon energy to begin to clear out debris and a direction for which to aim. At the next Sagittarius Full Moon, you should have a defined path to follow.

Take aim, only don't shoot just yet.

To horizons of truth for you dear friends.
peace

Taurus New Moon

This Taurus New Moon on May 6th occurs whilst we're also experiencing Mercury and Mars in retrograde.
So we have, new beginnings, mixed with reflective insight, past ideas, and reconsidering a previous or forgotten course of action.

Mercury in Taurus is steady and considered, and the Moon in Taurus is cosy, comforting, and secure.

We make the best out of these energies by taking a little time for solitude and contemplation - a walk, meditative actions, quiet, candle-lit baths. These conditions give space for insights to occur at any time, but especially so during Mercury retrograde.

Whilst an Aries New Moon, as the beginning of the zodiac is the idea of what we want to plant. Taurus is the sowing of that seed. Taurus is the cultivator. Bringing our ideas and hopes into tangible manifestation.

A relationship to Jupiter and Pluto suggests opportunities waiting to happen, as well as a big transformative shift.

Mercury retrograde in Taurus

Mercury, the messenger, takes a pause.

Mercury retrograde in Taurus asks us to cultivate security through re-assessment.

Mercury rules communications (speech, messages, writing), networking, information, technology, short travel, and learning. Whilst retrograde, we have the opportunity to re-everything; reflect, redo, re-plan, re-order, rethink. Check mistakes, plan for a new direction, make preparations.

It supports an inward and contemplative time. Past memories, events, or conversations, are brought to the surface to reconsider. We are better able to view things differently, to find indirect or hidden routes to a solution, and to understand subconscious thoughts better.

This year, Mercury retrogrades through the Earth signs. So, practical and tangible matters need sorting out; income, finances, house, daily routines, health, possessions.

In Taurus, the emphasis is on tangible security, material goods, and our values.

Take a look at money matters. It will be an excellent time to renegotiate contracts, refinance, find a better mortgage deal, check that any regular payments are properly in place, or tidy up the accounts.

Take a look at what you own. Go through and simplify your possessions. Sell, recycle, mend, or donate. Keep only what adds real value to your living.

In Taurus, our communications might take on a stubborn quality. We might find ourselves digging our heels in with an idea, or others doing so. On a more beneficial level, we can find ourselves more willing to put in the steady hard work to achieve results. It also lends a grounded energy, to help us make necessary decisions.

Mercury Taurus is a deliberate thinker and we can all learn this ability to slow down and give people or a project our full and considered attention.

Ultimately, Taurus wants to see physical manifestations. This can be anything from; starting to write letters by hand again, moving your savings to an account with better interest, ridding yourself of house clutter, convincing someone to finally sign that contract, or getting around to the repairs on your car.

All practical matters that help us feel better connected and more grounded in our lives. Earth signs are the foundation, and without a sturdy and solid footing, everything else wobbles in uncertainty.


A relationship to Pluto tells us to listen to our intuition, learn from the past, and to watch out for lies. It'll be a good time to uncover secrets, expose shady deals, or work from behind the scenes to finally resolve an old issue regarding money.

A soft relationship to Chiron suggests we might have the chance to heal something - an old argument perhaps.

A favourable relationship to the North Node suggests a fated event, or decision, is to come.

The House in which Mercury retrogrades is where you need to do the work, so that in a few weeks, when Mercury turns direct, you can move forward in that area clearer and lighter.

Groovy peace to you.
