Sagittarius Full Moon Overview

The Sagittarius full moon brings with it the winds of change. Through the Sun in Gemini and the Moon in Sagittarius, we can tap into some changeable and adaptable energy. Shortly after the full moon on Thursday, the planet Jupiter will be moving into the air sign Gemini.

A shift of energy is coming, indeed!

Collectively we have been experiencing a significant amount of Taurus energy. While that continues a while longer with Uranus in Taurus, this shift is going to lessen the grip of resistance to change. With planets moving into air and fire signs, it’s now time to take action.

Think of this shift in energy like when you cook something such as stew or chili. Some of it tends to settle to the bottom and harden to the point it is stuck at the bottom of the pan.

This is your fixed stuff. Breaking down that stuck stuff and getting it unstuck is what has been going on.

Now, the stuck stuff is getting unstuck. There is freedom for what's been shaken loose, and there is freedom and creativity available for new ideas for what next.

What will you do with the creative ideas coming out of this dynamic and social full moon?

Full Moon in Sagittarius and Sun in Gemini

With the Sun moving into Gemini and the full Moon in Sagittarius, expect some new ideas and inspiration to come at the full moon.

Sagittarius is a fire sign that is dynamic, inquisitive and eager to have diverse and fulfilling experiences in life. It’s a sign that can have boundless optimism and energy. It’s known for being easygoing, a lover of sport, playful and fun.

Sagittarius is a philosophical sign that is always seeking meaning. They like to experience different traditions, cultures and the wisdom behind beliefs. Sagittarius can get easily bored or distracted.

Count on Sagittarius for a fun time, but remember they can easily be distracted by an adventure that they couldn't say no to leaving you behind. Be aware of the shiny glittery things that distract you away from what is most important to you.

Gemini is where the Sun is traveling and from where the light is shining on the full Moon. Gemini is an air sign, social and chatty. Gemini can have a dual focus, whether it’s two people, two projects or two situations. 

The full moon may call two choices to your attention, or provide a powerful reflection of an important life lesson for you through external people and situations. Full Moons are when the two lights, Sun and Moon, are opposite of each other indicating a choice or seeing things from two sides.

The full Moon each month has a quality of duality. This month, with the Sun in the sign of the twins, Gemini, is a strong indication that duality will be the theme of the Sagittarius full Moon. Look for where you may be projecting, as you can learn a valuable lesson right now.

You may find yourself questioning something that you learned by considering the deeper meaning behind that thing. This full moon asks you to reflect on your deeper philosophical belief system and how rote learning and learning from your early education impacted your beliefs and values. 

The full Moon may push you to the point where you don’t want to continue doing things the way you always have because you find that this thing no longer is in sync with your core values or inner belief system.

Both Gemini and Sagittarius are mutable or changeable signs. The full Moon may feel like you can finally make some changes that you have been wanting to make, but have been slower to take shape.

Like that proverbial pot getting stirred, things that have been stuck at the bottom have now been stirred up. Adaptable signs Gemini and Sagittarius have an innate quality of adaptability and can easily shift and think about different ways to solve problems and create new ways of doing things.

Sagittarius Full Moon and Four Planets in Taurus

Four planets are traveling in Taurus: Venus, Jupiter, Uranus and Mercury. Taurus likes to maintain the status quo. Finding where Taurus house is in your chart will give you  more information as to where you may be resisting change. Check out my Astrology Houses Blog.

Find the courage within you to push forward through new opportunities. It’s a great time to take something to the next level or launch something new with Jupiter and Venus conjunct at the Sagittarius full moon in the last degree of Taurus 29. 

Something is coming to an end, and it’s likely there is some luck from things that you are ending, or moving to a new phase or cycle. It can be advancing something like a project, relationship or new service. Venus conjunct Jupiter tends to work like a good luck charm. 

We are still surfing the wave of energy in the process of fading away from the Uranus and Jupiter conjunction. The luck that may come from Jupiter and Venus together may come from something unexpected or a new and innovative idea for how to do something.

Mercury is now traveling through Taurus bringing practicality to ideas coming up for you. Watch for negative self-talk and thinking that is resistant to change. Taking the mindset of embracing change will help you take steps at a comfortable pace for you. Just don’t let doubt or fear of change keep you tied down.  

What situations, relationships or projects in your life are ready to be taken to the next level?

Jupiter rules the sign of Sagittarius and rules the full Moon. This infuses the full moon with the luck of the Jupiter-Venus conjunction. Take advantage of this energy Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

Jupiter Moves Into Gemini

On Sunday, May 26, Jupiter will change signs moving into Gemini. This is great news for Gemini’s and air signs Libra and Aquarius, and the fire signs Aries, Leo and Sagittarius. Jupiter will be in Gemini for one year.

There is a caution with Neptune exactly sextile Venus and Jupiter. On one hand, there can be hidden or missing pieces that don’t become clear until later. Neptune tends to dissolve things. So endings at this time that you don’t want to let go could be one of the luckiest things that happen to you, but you only see it in hindsight.

On a positive note, Neptune can bring some incredible creativity. Doing Neptunian things like lucid dreaming, meditation, playing music or creating art could all manifest some powerful creations. Let your mind go where it wants and see what ideas come. 

The theme of this full moon is to open your mind and embrace change. Ideas may come to you by engaging in the mystical arts as well like astrology, oracle cards and using crystals.

Pluto Sends A Powerful Message

Pluto is exactly trine the Sun and sextile the full Moon. What you are starting now has a powerful message attached to it. This energy is best used for creating empowering messages toward yourself and to others.

With Mars continuing to travel in its own sign of Aries, there is a tremendous amount of power that can be tapped into. This can be physical stamina, determination and willpower.

Sagittarius Full Moon Quote

'Live the full life of the mind, exhilarated by new ideas, intoxicated by the Romance of the unusual.' — Ernest Hemingway

Things to Do under the Sagittarius Full Moon

  • Do a full moon ritual using Sagittarius’s element fire. Use my free guide with a ritual for each element by clicking here.

  • Do something or start something interesting to you. Sagittarius wants to have as many experiences in life as possible. Think about something where you will enjoy the experience as much as the result or destination. I think of the saying ‘It’s about the journey, not the destination’ as a life mantra for Sagittarius.

  • Open your mind to new ideas that are coming in right now. There is some universal luck that can be carried into a new phase of something important to you.

  • Get social. Hang with friends, plan a party or take a short trip to a cool place close to home. It's best to go to a new place that you have always wanted to visit, or one where there is rich tradition or culture.

  • Sign up for a new class or read a book that expands your mind. Especially topics that teach a wise lesson or help you clarify your personal philosophy in life. Wisdom and learning that take place now may have long-term luck for you.
