the astrology of the Full moon in Sagittarius | June 14th, 2022 - the end of the lie, coming down to earth



On June 14, 2022, at 7:51AM EDT, the Sagittarius Moon opposes the Gemini Sun, giving us this month's Full Moon, our annual Full Moon in Sagittarius.


Full Moons brings things to light, to a conclusion or point of fullness/peak energy.

At any Full Moon in Sag - we OPEN OUR MINDS to a higher ground/broader view with a new WISDOM and at the same time welcome the choices and changing attentions of Gemini. 


Sagittarius is our mutable fire sign and rules such things as travel, freedom, adventure, legal situations/justice, higher education, faith, religion, prayer, optimism, problem solving, truth seekers, boldly going where no man has gone before, the quest, the luck that comes from courage/faith - it also rules carelessness, taking shortcuts, thinking we are right, making assumptions, exaggeration, overconfidence, impatience and superficial fluff.

Sagittarius is a mutable sign. The mutable signs prepare us for the change into the next season. We put on the sweater. We put away the sweater. We adjust. 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. 


We can see how this is all playing out in the United States with a quick glance at the CNN headlines.


Let's unpack the chart!

The Moon opposes the Sun - 23 degrees Sagittarius vs Gemini. The Moon is squaring Neptune in Pisces, sextiling Saturn in Aquarius and widely trining the Mars/Chiron conjunction in Aries - all separating. The Moon is trining Eris in Aries - applying. Jupiter, ruler of Sagittarius and so ruler of this lunation is in Aries, sextiling Mercury and squaring Black Moon Lilith.

Neptune is the focus of a T-Square with the Sun and Moon, fogging up the line between Gemini and Sagittarius. The square to Neptune speaks of what is standing in our way. The fog, illusions, lies, our own escapist tendencies, addictions, situations that require healing (health, spiritual, forgiveness, compassion). Squares to Neptune can be exhausting/draining - show if we require more rest, sleep, time in water, connection with others, even a vacation. 


At their best, they can dissolve very old tendencies/situations/habits. In this case, with the square to a Sagittarius Full Moon - Neptune can dissolve beliefs that are no longer serving us, exaggerated hopes/optimism that are not realistic, greed, sloppy/impatient propensities that lead to failure.

Know-it-alls will find out they don't.


There could be an illusion/dream/lie we NEED TO SNAP OUT OF and the Full Moon's bright light WAKES US UP.

The trine to Mars/Chiron EXACT (within seconds) is about our wounded masculine. Connecting to the Full Moon this might speak of an inability to even know what we want, a shut-off vitality from childhood/fear of following our passion (this is some of what we are working with this summer, too, with Black Moon Lilith in Cancer). If action/risk wasn't safe - maybe we have drawn too quickly a line in the sand between what we can and cannot do/accomplish/be. Jupiter's applying square to Black Moon Lilith in Cancer is echoing the wounded child, wounded/wounding mother theme. Maybe lies we were told in childhood (maybe by well-meaning adults) that formed who we are and what we believe that are no longer helpful if they ever were. This might come up in big ways over the next couple weeks and has already been in play, will be in play through other energies this summer. 

Mercury is sextiling Jupiter from Gemini, walking these degrees for the third time. This is part of the SOLUTION. The information, conversations, communications that are coming in now aren't brand new. Maybe we are talking about/thinking about old situations or working with revised information, BUT we (through Mercury) have taken the information back to Taurus - seen what is stable/solid and what isn't - and returned the information to Gemini to be dispersed/discarded/decided. We are dealing with whatever we are dealing with from an older and wiser perspective. The revised information/facts may be challenging to us, but, have, in a sense, been audited. 

The Full Moon's sextile (opportunity) to serious Saturn in Aquarius is the way through the Neptune square. There is solid ground here somewhere. Reality is supportive. Dad/authority/older people/someone who knows more than we do about this are supportive/helpful. The opportunity comes through taking something seriously, growing up, being responsible, being accountable. BEING REALISTIC. Rules and limits are HELPFUL/healthful. Sagittarius is about expansion, so maybe something now needs to be reeled in order to stabilize it. A bold Sagittarius vision may need to be narrowed down. Saturn rules time which is on our side here, so don't rush.


Sagittarius tends to like shortcuts, but Saturn is not allowing any corner-cutting.

To bottom line this one for us on a collective level - something is concluding/peaking/coming to light, that will dissolve an old belief/exaggerated hope and lean us into REALITY. The vision dissolves and is replaced by something more stable/not so big/not so flashy. THIS IS A GOOD THING.


Coming down to Earth is supported.  


xo all 


Health situations (including mental health) are tricky with a Full Moon square Neptune, so take care of yourself. Things definitely can conclude now and over the next couple weeks, but might also seem to be expanding. Give that Neptune something to do - make art, listen to music, dance, meditate/medicate (if appropriate and within reason because effects could be amplified), get into water, get enough sleep/rest. Lean into Saturnian authority/professionals now. Take serious/sober action.
