The moon is on her way to being full this Saturday June 3 in the fiery sign of Sagittarius at 10:42 pm CST. Full moons occur every month when the sun and moon are in opposite signs at the exact same degree. For this particular full moon the sun will be at 13 degrees Gemini while the moon will be in the opposite sign of Sagittarius at 13 degrees. Full moons can create a sense of tension and instability. Our goal during a full moon is to find a sense of balance. Full moons can bring situations to completion and they can cast light on what was previously hidden in our lives.

Keywords and the Full Moon in Sagittarius: expansion, inspiration, philosophy, exploration, foreign travel, exaggeration, learning, education, fortune, good luck, optimism, rowdiness, liberation, adventure, enthusiasm, impulsiveness and impatience. Look over the keywords and pay attention to the ones that jump out at you. Which keywords describe your life right now? Do any of the keywords describe something you need in your life right now?

Sagittarius is a fire sign: Each of the twelve zodiac signs can be divided by elements; fire, earth, air and water. Sagittarius belongs to the fire element meaning this is a sign associated with enthusiasm, passion, excitement and courage. There is a restlessness to the fire signs coupled with a flair for the dramatic and theatrical. This fiery, enthusiastic energy can reawaken our need for adventure. This is the perfect full moon to shake things up and break free from the repetitive and the mundane. It’s time to take a leap of faith by doing something different. Think about what inspires you and spend some time doing something you’re enthusiastic about. The dark or shadow side of Sagittarius is scattered, chaotic energy that takes you in too many directions where you end up accomplishing nothing. Pick a goal and commit to it.

Sagittarius is a mutable sign: Another way to divide the twelve astrological signs is by modality. There are three modalities; cardinal, fixed and mutable. The modality of a sign gives you more clues about that sign’s attitude and nature. Sagittarius is a mutable sign meaning the Centaur tends to be adaptable and flexible. If you’ve hit a dead-end in your life the mutable energy of a Sagittarius full moon says look for another solution and if that one doesn’t work try another. Look for a different angle or another way of seeing your life.

Crystals and the New Moon in Sagittarius: Topaz is the birthstone for Sagittarius so this would be a powerful crystal to work with during this full moon. Topaz brings joy while providing energy and faith in the abundance of the Universe.

Turquoise is another good stone for the full moon in Sagittarius. This beautiful blue-green stone aids us in getting rid of a pessimistic attitude and instead focus on solutions. Turquoise can also help with self-sabotage and negative, self-defeating beliefs.

Lapis Lazuli: This beautiful, ancient blue stone helps open our third-eye and speak our truth.

Jupiter is the planetary ruler of Sagittarius: Each sign has a ruling planet and for Sagittarius that planetary ruler is Jupiter the Roman King of the Gods. Jupiter is linked to good luck, good fortune, abundance, prosperity, travel and learning. Jupiter recently moved into the sign of Taurus on May 16 and will be in the sign of the Bull until May 25, 2024. This means when we embrace the qualities of Taurus, Jupiter will bestow his blessings on us. For the next year, as Jupiter transits the sign of Taurus, instant gratification is out and patience, endurance, perseverance and planning is in. It doesn’t sound exactly exciting but playing the long game will be the quickest route to Jupiter’s benevolence, blessings and miracles. Green and baby blue are colors associated with Taurus so we’ll want to integrate those colors into our lives over the next year. Emerald is the stone we’ll want to add to our collection while Jupiter’s in Taurus.
