Jupiter Direct | Full Moon in Sagittarius - getting real so we can get on with what really matters

El camino by eulalievarenne

We have our annual Full Moon in Sagittarius at 9:09 EDT tomorrow morning (someone reminded me recently we are in daylight savings time and I should be writing EDT instead of EST, it looks weird but just means east coast time in the spring and summer). The Moon is followed, almost exactly one hour later by Jupiter, retrograde since February and ruler of Sagittarius, stationing direct in Libra.

The Sun will be at 18 degrees Gemini, the Moon at 18 degrees Gemini's polarity sign of Sagittarius.

Every month the Full Moon is a time of Sun opposite Moon. This is a time of what we need (Sun) vs what we want (Moon), ego/physical (Sun) vs emotion/intuition (Moon), dad (Sun) vs mom (Moon), work/our place in the spotlight (Sun) vs home/our place out of the spotlight (Moon) although with people posting so many public pics of families and home on Insta and Facebook I may have to rethink this one! - with an opposition there is internal pressure and external pressure. This is why emergency rooms fill up, paintings of wolves howling at Full Moons fill books and luna-tics' screams fill the day/night - really, stop and listen, you'll hear someone!

The Moon (our emotions and instincts) is at its monthly peak. The night sky is lit up. Something comes to light. Something comes to a conclusion

(although with Jupiter not covering completely new territory until autumn, conclusions could take some time to unwind themselves).

The fact that Jupiter, ruler of this Moon, stations direct an hour after the Moon reaches its peak tells us alot. I wrote about Jupiter retrograde HERE.

This Moon takes us back to the Sagittarius New Moon at 19 degrees back in December 2015. HERE is a post about that one. This would be a good read now.

To paraphrase that post - Sagittarius is a fun-loving sign that rules travel, freedom, adventure, legal stuff, higher education, good luck, faith, religion, prayer, optimism, problem solving, truth seekers, boldly going where no man has gone before, the quest  -

it also rules carelessness, taking shortcuts, thinking we are right, making assumptions, throwing pink paint on problems and hoping they will go away, overconfidence, impatience and superficial fluff.

Sagittarius is a mutable sign. The mutable signs prepare us for the change into the next season.

Mutable signs are service signs and Sagittarius is in service through the exploration of Truth - this could be legal truth or political truth but its most especially spiritual truth - its highest purpose is enlightenment and expanding what is known.

The lower level energies rule religious wars, legal battles and political bullshit.

(and if you live in the U.S., unless you are living under a rock you are probably thinking about Comey testifying today - for many months the rock thing may have felt somewhat appealing and believe me I have tried to tuck myself in there, it's just not possible - the pill bugs got there first ... although they do make for incredibly quiet neighbors plus they will almost certainly run away when we show up with the coffeecake for a chat up, so we'll have the cake all for ourselves so there's that, too - of course they are rather creepy looking although hubs insists they are somewhat helpful and related to shrimp (!)

The Moon is conjunct restrictive Saturn. The Sagittarian propensity for saying YES, and the Gemini smorgasbord of options, is forced into a more defined and honest space. See Friday's forecast in the weekly HERE.

None of our stories, lies, beliefs that are no longer needed, options that are just distracting us from what we really need to do - none of these paradigms are moving forward with us. Truth bombs are dropped.

Life is calling bullshit on our bullshit. Ideas, conversations, who we used to be, who we never were - whatever doesn't work anymore has to go. We are done with it. 

From this space we move forward (Jupiter direct) with what is real.

Now remember what Jupiter's retrograde has looked like - he stopped, he moved backward, now he stops, he moves forward - he is covering this ground for the THIRD time. And you know what they say about third times! Are you feeling third time lucky or three strikes you're out?

Also remember he won't be covering new ground until early September and he first walked these degrees last November. Saturn says "you learn patience by practicing patience".

The Moon is also squaring Neptune (strong in Pisces). This is the energy of the recent Saturn/Neptune square where we were working with dreams vs reality (and truth vs lies). Some of us let go of a dream. Some of us may be getting/living the dream come true now and will have to deal with the reality of that situation. Dreams coming true pushes us into the next thing in similar ways that letting go of dreams does. Life isn't static. There is no finish line. With Neptune involved with this Moon whatever is brought to light or whatever concludes - won't be crystal clear. Neptune dissolves but it also fogs things up.

The good news is Jupiter (expansion, good luck) will have us all moving forward! The flies in the ointment are : Saturn - time, hard work, responsibility, consequences - and Neptune - sacrifice, dissolution, escape, loss. Stuff is dropping away now so we can get real and get on with what really matters.

Losses now lead to something BETTER later if we take things seriously, and honestly, going forward. Gains can stick (Saturn) or drift away (Neptune) depending on whether or not we have honestly earned them. I think they are most likely to be earned if they come now and have some stickiness!

Faith moves mountains. For many people this Moon could likely tie in with the Venus retrograde themes (Jupiter is answering to Venus these days) of love and money.

Last night's Moon was beautiful. I hope you can get out and walk in the Full Moon tonight and tomorrow night. If there is any way to get naked in it - do that (it's not like being naked in the supermarket - or most dressing rooms - with that horrible lighting plus the only ones out there will be the wolves and our fellow lunatics).

xo all

with that conjunction to Saturn we will be able to see Saturn now, too, if the skies are clear - did you catch Jupiter with the Moon in the skies last week?

I feel sooooo aligned with all that you are saying in this post Cat. I've been reading but haven't been commenting because they don't seem to ever show up for some reason lately, but... yeah. :)

I've definitely been feeling like luck is on my side lately, but also stepping out of something, and moving onto the next step forward.

Somehow I magically got clear on what my idea of moving forward is - what I really want, and it's turned out to be something different than I had been trying to do all along.

It's in the 60's and raining here, but I'd rather that, than hot!

Blessings to you friend, and hope you're feeling the good vibes too.

Hey Janell - sorry I realized recently my comment email notifications was turned off somehow! Not sure how I managed that since I haven't been in the settings in months!

I feel the same way. A couple people I know have had incredibly 'lucky' circumstances - after a long period of hard work and beating their heads against the wall. George had something happen, too- but we'll have to see how it pans out over the next few months. Just the hopefulness of the possibility of it working out is working its magic.

Personally I had 2 free orders of stuffed mushrooms at Carraba's last night (their apology for making us wait when the takeout was actually ready 5 minutes earlier than the computer order said it would be?) and got an avocado for 7 cents at Target when I didn't know the price and the cashier decided to guess. I take these as good signs!

So happy to hear things are going well for you and you are getting clear. You have worked so hard to get to that space - now I am wondering what you are up to next!

Our weather is about the same - but I think the heat is coming back this weekend. I dropped the air conditioner out of the studio window on the ground when I took it out last fall, so I have no idea if it works. I'm going to try to test it in the shed out back somehow with an extension cord before I drag it in here and find out it doesn't work. Almost hoping it doesn't so I have an excuse for a new one one that is quieter and lighter weight. Ack!

I'll have to check your Insta to see what you've been up to- I haven't been on there in a while!

xo and blessings back to you!

Yay!! The comments are back! :)

I'm curious to hear what's going on with George, that's exciting!

Same thing happened to me, it started a week or so ago, I went to Staples looking for a shipping box, when I realized my gift sets were just a smidge too big to pack several in a large flat rate box... of course Staples didn't have the size I was looking for or anything similar, so the guy just gave me a box from their shipping bench in the back! I was like, omg, thank you! Normally, whenever I notice on a digital clock that the time is all the same, 2:22 or 3:33 whatever, I make a wish, but lately I've been noticing it a Lot! I hit all green lights to and from an appointment the other day... just little things all over the place!

I'm actually going to dip my toe into Amazon FBA and learn the ropes. And I'm going to switch to pattern so DancingMooney has her .com space but I think I've realized I'm not a blogger, or a social-media-er... I do like my IG, but even that I keep to a minimum... I really just want to 'do the work' and live my life. I thought if I built a blog with lots of links and affiliates and things, it would eventually create a side income for me, but I had a light bulb moment the other day when I jokingly said to a friend, I'd be equally happy having a vacation home that was an investment property... and a something clicked.

You are right, (and thank you for noticing, I needed that :)) I have done a lot of work to get to this place... I've been a dreamer for so, so long, and I suppose I will always be one, but I am learning how to put on my do-er shoes and get the wheels in motion.

Wow lots of words here! Well before I write a book.

Love you much, and yay for comments, glad you found it! :)

How is your new travel trailer coming along?


Catherine Ivins said...

Ack! I guess the comment thing is still not totally fixed because this one didn't pop in either! I think Amazon FBA has a prime day coming up if you jump on it. I am back and forth about it. I have been focused on wholesale but now just had 2 stores in a row not pay after ordering - I hadn't shipped yet of course, but it's been discouraging.

An investment property sounds great! I love that idea. I always think when we move we need some extra space to rent out occasionally on AirBNB. The trailer is awaiting brakes ... and I still need to redo the inside of the door, but that should be easy compared to some other stuff. But things I say are easy are not so easy! Probably why I am craving 'easy' lately.

I have that number thing alot too although I haven't seen it in a couple weeks. I love when things like that box happen.

I feel the same about social media. I wish I was more into it. I get that it matters now that everyone is only looking at stuff they want to look at. I can stay on top of it for a few weeks and then I slide out of the game again .... my current slide has been a long one. :)

Hope you have a nice weekend Janell!! xox
