We are having a Full Moon in Sagittarius on Friday, June 9th at 1:10pm Universal Time. It will appear at its fullest on the night of June 8th if you are in the Americas. The astrological energies of the Full Moon start to become noticeable in the days leading up to it and remain fairly strong in the days following. The planetary configuration at this time also influences the following two weeks until the next Moon cycle begins.
On June 6th/7th, Venus entered Taurus and Mercury entered Gemini. These planets rule these signs and they express themselves very harmoniously there. Venus, which rules relationships, love, money, values, and pleasures, expresses itself in a way that is stable, determined, secure, and sensual, but could also be stubborn and overindulging. Mercury, which rules the mind, communication, information flow, and commuting, expresses itself in a way that is versatile, quick, multitasking, dualistic, and good with words. It can also be continuously changing and scattered while lacking focus and depth.
Mars entered Cancer on June 4th/5th, which is a sign that it is more challenged in the way it expresses itself, yet has different benefits. Mars represents assertiveness, action, aggression, and sex, while Cancer is an inward, retreating, protective, domestic, and feeling-based sign. In this sign Mars can generally be more passive. However, its assertive nature can be best expressed for getting things done around the home and taking action toward things that we are emotionally connected to and/or make us feel secure.
The Sun has been in Gemini since May 20th/21st, a time in which the communicative, dualistic, social, and information-rich qualities of Gemini have been more present. As the Moon in Sagittarius opposes the Sun, we find ourselves needing to look at more of the big picture, and considering what is beyond our immediate thoughts, language, and environment.
