Occurring a day before the next eclipse season begins (19th August – 23rd September), this Full Moon is an ‘almost-but-not-quite’ lunar eclipse, giving it greater influence and a stronger ‘edge’ against which to hone our awareness.
As the energies in August heat up and intensify, it will be more important than ever to find your center and apply intuitively guided reason. You cannot afford to take things at face value or make quick judgments without researching all the facts.
Now I share with you what I’ve received for this powerful Gateway, since a Gateway, nor any celestial alignment, is not just at particular time of day, for there is no time anywhere except for Earth. Time is made up so we can be in control.
With Monday's Full Moon (20 June) on the degree of the Galactic Centre, this week is one of closure and new beginnings. Because it involves the Galactic Centre, we are talking about major karmic closure, soul contracts ending, huge chapters of our lives and soul evolutionary path transitioning into new cycles.
June's full Moon in Sagittarius occurs on June 20.It is another big lunar event, with Mercury, Jupiter, the nodes, Saturn and Neptune all in a big grand cross. This can bring about difficult energies and we may have a strong sense of stress and difficulties
May's full Moon in Sagittarius is an enormous one - a real doozy. It is going to be a bit of a wild ride, particularly on the world stage. Mars is exactly conjunct (together with) this new Moon, ramping up feelings, responses, events, etc, and driving energies that may sometimes be a little hard to handle (or to get a grip on).
As you may know, I like to tune into the actual energy of the Full and New Moon themselves. I don’t spend a lot of time on the other aspects traveling with it, as there are other talented astrologer colleagues of mine who do a great job with that.
The Moon is full in the 3rd degree of Scorpio at 5:25 UT. Occurring while Venus, Uranus and Eris form a conjunction in Aries, it reminds us of the power of love to see us through darkness and its iconoclastic role in these changing times.
