Sagittarius Full Moon: Stairway to Heaven

This moon is full at 8.10 Sagittarius on May 29th at 10:20 am ET

Today’s full moon in Sagittarius is the halfway point of the lunar cycle we entered two weeks ago with the Threshold new moon in Taurus and the ingress of Uranus into Taurus on the same day. Uranus is at the highest point in the sky, mid-heaven, just as this moon reaches peak fullness. This week, we begin to take action on the intentions we set two weeks ago, and start to see the kind of fruit that Uranus in Taurus might bear for us.

Sagittarius, ruled by Jupiter, is a sign that loves expansion, exploration, and fun. Sag people are optimistic, and they do things in a Big way, from parties to vacations. So the moon in a such a generous, energetic fire sign invites us to look optimistically to the future. Expand the opportunities. Go big, because now that Uranus is in Taurus, there is no alternative. Luna makes a trine to the north node in Leo, suggesting that we are rewarded when we are true to ourselves and express ourselves fully. That trine is part of a mystic rectangle with the sun and south node (+Mars), an aspect of support and balance. Even though we are going through massive changes right now, we can be optimistic that good things are happening. The ruler of this moon, Jupiter, is still very much in a trine to Neptune, and beginning to make a grand water trine with Venus. This is big, dreamy aspect. Jupiter is known for protecting and removing obstacles. The Sabian Symbol for this full moon is “A Mother Leads her Small Child Step by Step up the Stairs.” With these aspects, a kind of fairytale Stairway to Heaven comes to mind. You are being led, guided by your intuition, to complete the steps that will bring you to the next level. Knowing that you are protected, this is a moon for taking another big step towards the unknown.

If there's a bustle in your hedgerow

Don't be alarmed now

It's just a spring clean for the May queen

Yes, there are two paths you can go by

But in the long run

There's still time to change the road you're on

If Uranus in Taurus has made a bustle in your hedgerow, don’t be alarmed, ok, because it’s just a spring clean for the May Queen -- a good old Beltane shakeup to cleanse the old and make space for the new. This song is so enigmatic that Led Zeppelin fans have been wondering about it out loud ever since the band released it in 1971. You probably have your own interpretation, so I won’t over-interpret. There is something about this full moon that lends itself to belief, channeling, and allowing yourself to be guided to the path.

You’re over the threshold now. Where are you going from here?

The Enchantment of Jupiter trine Neptune

00031.jpg

Jupiter in Scorpio trine Neptune in Pisces is the biggest outer planet aspect of 2018. This has been in effect since November 2017, and will remain in effect through September 2018. We are in the middle of a three-part cycle of enchantment. The aspect was exact on December 2, 2017. It will be exact again on May 25th and August 19th.

Jupiter is the planet of expansion, generosity, luck, optimism, learning and knowledge. Neptune is the planet of spirituality, religion, dreams, higher ideals, and all that is ethereal. When Jupiter in the rather witchy sign of Scorpio aspects Neptune in sensitive, psychic Pisces, they create the potential for big magic.

What kind of spell will you cast with this kind of magic in the air? It could be a time to commune with the spirits through a seance or a create an artistic work of great depth and beauty. This aspect brings to mind fairy tale films, mermaid queens, fairy godmothers, castles in the clouds and kingdoms under the sea. There is an element of fantastical illusion to Jupiter trine Neptune that can work in your favor as you enchant your own life. Water spells, divination, creative visualization, and dream boarding are all perfect for this aspect.

Trines are lovely and often make things feel easy, but the luck doesn’t always just fall in your lap. You have to do a little fishing with this one. Take some time on Friday to cast your magic net and see if you can pull in your dream.

To find out what you should cast for, look at the themes of the Jupiter-Neptune trine for your rising sign and sun sign in the horoscopes.
