The Sagittarius Full Strawberry Moon is another step in this powerful period of time where each New and Full Moon, along with other planetary movements, brings us deep transformation that feels like it’s moving at lightning speed. Information is rapidly boiling up to the surface and we’re being challenged with choosing to transform and take loving, strong actions to cleanse with love and create with love. Universal love that it.
When the Moon is full, it’s conjunct the Earth and both are opposite the Sun. This creates a synergy between balance, harmony, and light exposing shadow. By adding the 3rd piece to this equation – Earth - we get a more complete and vibrant picture of the cyclic dance going on in the heavens, on Earth, within us as individuals and between all life.
Some keywords for this full Moon and for the Earth are: expansion of light and love; expansion of and movement toward balance and harmony; shining light on justice, expansion of spirit, soul, and divine feminine, shining light on “open enemies”, scales of justice moving toward winning, and lessons taught and learned.
Keywords for the Sun with this full Moon are: unpredictable, anger, sticking to your “truth” no matter what, small talk seeming to be high-minded talk but it’s a cover for small talk, warrior truth connecting communication with higher vision, curiosity, speed, restlessness, debate, details, critical, information, differences, systems, principles, freedom, individualistic, explosions, reform, agitate, crisis, rash, and chance taker.
Sagittarius is about Truth. The spiritual, deep down to the core of Truth. No sugar-coating it, just feel it, think it, speak it, live it Truth.
This full Moon takes us further along this high vibrating, highly transforming path. It offers us the opportunity to go deep within ourselves to seek our Truth. Not the small minded, gossipy talk our egos want us to listen to in order to distract us from our Soul’s Truth and growth. These beautiful Moon, Earth, Sun and all the other energies are calling us to go deep with our talk, even communicating deeply on the energetic levels with our loved ones, our guides and Angels, with our higher selves, with elemental beings. This full Moon is all about Truth and truthful connecting with others. Communicate with your crystals, your herbs, your flowers, plants and trees. Communicate with the waters, the air, the Earth, the weather, the animals, birds, water life. Communicate WITH ONE ANOTHER WITH LOVE, KINDNESS, RESPECT AND RECOGNITION THAT EVERYONE OF US IS A SOUL IN A BODY AND WE’RE ALL CONNECTED AT THE POINT OF LOVE. ALL LIFE IS CONNECTED AT THE POINT OF LOVE.
On a more global level, this full Moon really begins the process of shining light on Truth that needs to be heard and seen by everyone. Watch for a lot of information to begin to come to light – and this process will continue for a while. With Sagittarius, we’ll see this play out in government(s), sports and religion(s). We may also see some stuff coming out in the area of education. Sagittarius seeks Truth, is a fire sign and is a warrior energy, so things are kicking into high gear now!
This is an early cycle of a number of Moon cycles where it’s really hitting us all hard to deal with, clear out and release our dark and negative stuff. If you are struggling with someone or something, try moving into a space of loving recognition that they’re also a soul and dealing with THEIR stuff, too. The energies are powerful now for us to forgive, ask forgiveness, release karma with love and wisdom. Wisdom being that moment we realize we’re no longer victims, but that we have the power to create loving change and healing. It’s about making choices that are elevated, loving, and compassionate.
Be very mindful when you open your mouth to speak and when you tune your ears to listen. Center all of your communications senses in love and kindness. Mercury and Mars are conjunct in the sign of Cancer, which can go in a number of directions.
It can put us into a place of fear, which can lead to arguing, trying to protect oneself from a perceived fear. It can lead to listening from a place of fear and anger, which will lead to misunderstandings – illusionary and deliberate – which could lead to bigger problems.
It can lead to people voicing their needs over the needs of others in a way that is selfish and hurtful.
However, by staying centered in love, compassion, kindness and light, the communication and actions will be transformational and beautiful. And this is where we are being called to transform into. Beings who come from love, unconditional, universal love, who are caring, kind. Beings who communicate with all other beings – human and non-human – and who take loving, kind action that is a result of communicating with love and Truth.
All of this love isn’t a passive thing. Mars is a balancing point with this full Moon, so we’re learning about boundaries as well as how to take love, kindness, Truth, and forgiveness into a place of right action. It’s a balance and an act of harmony. While we can feel compassion, forgiveness and universal love for someone who is hurtful, we also don’t have to allow them to continue to hurt us. We can offer them a loving space to heal.
Forgiveness isn’t just about forgiving others. These energies are teaching us to love ourselves, be kind, compassionate and forgiving with ourselves, too. We’re also learning how to love ourselves with an energetically elevated Mars energy.
The transformation happens in the thoughts we change, the choices we make and the actions we take rooted in kindness, love and forgiveness.
