8 Sagittarius 10
The Taurus New Moon took us to our inner guidance system and provided us the opportunity to try out new controls, maneuvers, and programs that we may not have tried or knew existed. It may have felt like riding a new bike, or driving a new car, all with an upgrade for better performance. There is nothing like a step into the unknown learn that you can handle the situation far better than you may have believed, and that mastery was on hand. The New Moon took us through this uncharted inner territory in our own private landscape. The Moon is our most visual, reliable source for tracking the development of our own consciousness. It is worth remembering that our consciousness is continually expanding, second by second, just through breathing, and can be tracked, just like a tree growing year after year.

Similarly, we do not stand still. We are not always aware of the change and expansion that is constantly takin place within us, and this is by design. We see where we have gone and what we have become, always when the time is precisely right. The designer and commander of that timing is Ourselves, our Super Consciousness, co-creating with Source. The Taurus New Moon provided the means for refreshing our awareness of this process and included a number of planets at 8 degrees (Saturn, Juno, and Orcus) in relationships with each other and with the Soul Star (Moon North Node) and Earth Star (Moon South Node). The number 8 signifies power and balance in sacred geometry, and this Full Moon at 8 Sagittarius 10 is the flowering of what we gained by exploring our inner guidance system.
The Sagittarian quality of consciousness is exuberant in its desire to share wisdom gained through the journey of life. Sagittarius is that part of our consciousness that yearns for and is driven to search for Truth. Specifically, this relates to how our personal life experience connects to Source and what it all means. Sagittarius is where we are willing to explore and discover the Truth, even if it means venturing into uncharted and uncomfortable territory. The wisdom gained from the search is that which feels like it should be shared with others, and right now. This is one reason why the Cosmic Consciousness symbol for the fire of Sagittarius is the bonfire. A bonfire is more than a simple fire to warm and provide light to one or two people. It is a jubilant celebration, drawing in others to take part, and creating a contrast with the surrounding darkness. It sends a message. On the exterior level, this could mean sharing with others in new ways. Internally, it is the opportunity to connect different parts of ourselves together in ways that may have previously eluded us. This Full Moon provides more than enough energy to transcend any reluctance for doing so.
The Sagittarius Full Moon is disposed by Jupiter, and Jupiter is at 15 Scorpio 51, a world axis point. World axis points are where we tap into our collective consciousness. Feel certain that any wisdom shared will go as wide and deep as we can imagine at that moment. Our imperative is to be sensitive to how we share our wisdom, whatever it may be. The words we speak may be lofty or mundane, this aspect of our words does not matter so much. What does matter, and quite significantly, is the energy we bring as we speak our words. Mercury at 29 Taurus 10 is still coming out of a new cycle with Sedna at 26 Taurus 40, indicating that how we communicate at this time contributes directly to the rememberment process of the Divine Feminine. Blind sacrifice of the Feminine to the Masculine is still being played out and needs to be recognized for what it is. The needs of the many are not satisfied over the long-term through martyrdom, and this blinds us to discovering solutions that bring everyone along--male and female, in their own way--together.
There have been 12 men who walked on the Moon during the Apollo Missions from July 1969-December 1972, and as of last week, only 4 are still alive. Alan Bean, who tagged himself as “first artist on another world,” transitioned on 26 May. Art transports us to the point where we feel free to imagine something that we would not have seen or felt before. Alan Bean used Apollo Mission photographs to create paintings that show us how it felt to be on the Moon, our collective vision of the feminine.

Orcus, our connection to our immortal Selves, is at 8 Virgo 7 in a perfect light intersection (formerly a T-square) with the Sun (our conscious Self identity) at 8 Gemini 10 and the Moon (our intuitive emotional nature). This provides us with the opportunity, at the moment of the Full Moon, to experience our connection to the universal truths that we hold dearest. On an individual level, this is a time to allow ourselves to recognize that the moment that separated us from oneness with the Mother is also the one that began our physical individual lives. Allowing ourselves the experience of separation and the vital reality of being alive simultaneously is possible by using this light intersection to feel everything that comes up. Our immortal selves do not change wither we feel separate or one.
Venus (what and how we love) at 11 Cancer 58 is coming into a new cycle with the fixed star Sirius (where we access universal insight) at 14 Cancer 19, and both are joining in a watery grand manifestation (formerly trine) with Jupiter (our social consciousness) at 15 Scorpio 51 and Neptune (our capacity for clear vision and enlightenment) at 16 Pisces 22. A manifestation is a free flow of energies that becomes something tangible. With the heart leading the way, it is possible for us to explore our deepest wisdom (Jupiter) with clarity (Neptune), calming any tendency we may have to bully ourselves, and project this outward. Sirius is in a new cycle with the Sun in the natal chart (Sibley) of the United States. Given the global influence of the United States at this time, this manifestation provides the energy to start imagining a new collective vision for this role.
Mars (how we are physically motivated) at 4 Aquarius 39 is in its retrograde shadow and moving into the first of three conjunctions with the Earth Star (where we experience and revisit the old familiar cycles) at 7 Aquarius 33). The first of these three conjunctions is beginning to gain strength during the Full Moon, and it can be used productively to liberate ourselves from patterns that feel repetitive and seem to be blocking our expression of Love to ourselves and others.
Sagittarius embodies the journey of the spirit triumphing over all that keeps us from realizing the Truth of who we are--Source. Our ego is but one tool we can use to help us realize that our original sense of woundedness (emergence from the birth canal) is but one sensation of life on earth and does not need to drive everything we do. Coming from Source itself, we actually are beacons of Love. The Full Moon in Sagittarius is a moment where we can experience both our quest for Truth and see what we can leave behind as we make discoveries about our own consciousness and how we connect to others. It is a time to aim high for ourselves and for each other.
