On June 20th 2016 at 11:02am, GMT, there is a Full Moon in the freedom-loving, far-ranging and optimistic sign of Sagittarius which of course implies that the Sun is in the opposite sign of Gemini. Every Full Moon calls for us to strike the right balance between two opposing forces which, presently, form a dilemma between learning (Gemini) and teaching (Sagittarius), disbelief (Gemini) and faith (Sagittarius), gathering (Gemini) and disseminating information (Sagittarius) as well as between short-distance (Gemini) and long-distance travelling (Sagittarius).
Moreover, with the Full Moon axis on the very last degree of the Gemini-Sagittarius axis, it seems that the above dilemmas have an extreme or compulsive streak to them whereby periods of an excessive need for faith, teaching, dissemination of information and long-distance travelling (anaeretic Moon in Sagittarius) will be followed by periods of excessive attachment of importance to questioning, learning, information-gathering and short-distance travelling (anaeretic Sun in Gemini).
To be sure, due to the mutability of the Gemini-Sagittarius axis, the above dilemmas will be relatively easy to resolve through high mobility and many discussions regarding the conflict between dreams and reality as evidenced by the mutable grand cross between Mercury-Jupiter-Saturn-Neptune. After all, the Sun conjunct Betelgeuse, the star on Orion’s right shoulder, seems to promise uncomplicated success for the above discussions and negotiations as long as one is willing to leave their wounds behind and accept that there are many things beyond their control (Chiron in Pisces atop a separating T-Square with the Full Moon axis) and as long as they don’t allow extreme patriotic or family values to get in the way of these discussions (Venus out-of-bounds in Cancer conjunct the Sun).
The murder of British MP Jo Cox, only four days before the current Full Moon, by a man that is alleged to a be a far-right extremist constitutes a real-life example of how far one can go for their values and principles… Caution is therefore needed in how one manages their anger and aggression, as also evidenced by Mars in Scorpio who’s still retrograde and virtually unaspected. We hope that, if anything, this Full Moon will make you think!
