A Full Moon Full of Optimism

A Full Moon Full of Optimism

Today’s Full Moon in Sagittarius is a culmination point of the past two weeks, as well as a final phasing out of the challenges we faced while Saturn was in that sign between late 2014 and the end of last year. I’m pretty happy to be done with that period, which brought a number of Saturnian restrictions to my health and everyday work, although the great taskmaster also shows us what we need to learn to overcome adversity, and I think I’ve got a handle on that, too!

Are you also finally feeling you have moved on from an old adventure or challenge that developed over that period? Now that it’s completing somehow, the next phase becomes more apparent. What do you need to wrap up over the next two weeks? And where do you want to be heading over the next three years?

Sagittarius represents study and higher learning, exploration and distant travel, our belief systems and higher philosophy of life. The area of your natal horoscope where Sagittarius is found will give you extra information regarding its impact on that area of your life.

Every year there is at least one Full Moon and one New Moon in each sign of the zodiac (although because our calendar doesn’t follow moon cycles, there can sometimes be two for one particular sign). By the time of the Sagittarius New Moon on December 6th, Jupiter – which rules Sagittarius and therefore brings great support or expansion to that area of life – will also have moved in there from November 9th and until December 2019.

Sagittarius will have us growing, expanding and questioning our philosophy and perspective on life, examining our (perhaps outmoded) beliefs and wanting to travel or meet people from other walks of life. The last time we had a similar energy was from November 2006 to December 2007. What was happening for you at that time?

Look out for realisations in the days surrounding today’s Full Moon, as they can give us intuitive or concrete clues to where we will be focused from November onwards. This energetic shift will also give us the chance to see how far we have come in healing from the challenges of the past three years, and there will be a renewed optimism in this area of your life to help you move forward.

By no small coincidence, our amazing yoga and personal development retreat at Basunti will take place in this period, making the most of the beneficial energy of Jupiter in Sagittarius that supports broadening our horizons and envisioning a bright, new future. Join us in India and seize upon your urge to move on in an open-minded and optimistic way. We will help you see yourself in a whole new light as you prepare your goals for 2019 and beyond.

With love and expansive light,
