We are working up to a Full Moon in Sagittarius on Saturday. The emotional energies build! This one is going to be special, too, because the Moon will rise in the sky alongside retrograde Mars. Thats a lot of fire! Maybe fireworks?
The fire element has to do with inspiration and self-expression, and there may be plenty of that as this lunation perfects. It might be easy to let some negative emotions like anger take over, but only if we see ourselves as victims. Victims are the most--or the only--violent people.
Instead, we are invited to believe the highest thing that we can about ourselves. And perhaps if we are able to be so generous wit ourselves, we can be so generous with others, too.
Sagittarius reminds us to aim high! Be bold in what you are willing to believe that you can do. Use this waxing moon to grow your more positive belief.
Sagittarius is symbolized by a centaur; half human, half horse. This indicates that this energy has to do with uniting the body and the mind. We have an innate wisdom in the body that can be trusted. When we allow our minds to work with this intelligence, instead of AT it, we can get more goodness with less effort.
Sag has to do with what we call "truth". It's all about perception, and what we believe about the world.
So often we think we know what's going on, what someone else is "really" doing, etc. And we don't know jack shit. We know what we believe about the world based on the past, and don't see the world as it is at all! We don't always see that what is before us, is within us. We have an opportunity right now to use any negative emotion that comes up to notice that we are believing something that is misaligned with our True Will.
So much has changed, hasn't it? There doesn't seem to be any going back. This is the year of the Question Mark, after all. We are being set free in so many ways. Sagittarius rules open space, opportunity and movement.
The chakra that unites the lower, body oriented chakras with the higher, spirit oriented chakras is the Heart. This is where we find the truth that what is physical IS spiritual, and what is spiritual manifests physically. It's all vibration. And it's a choice. Always. The energies of this year help us remove the blinders for clearer, broader vision.
Mercury comes out of his underworld journey and starts to be seen in the sky again. This helps communication run more smoothly, and many things may come to light. He goes direct on Sunday May 22nd, helping us ascend from this mighty retrograde period with new insights and a whole new way of perceiving ourselves.
