Sagittarius Full Moon

May 23, 2024:  Full Moon at Sagittarius 2°55’, 9:53 am EDT.


The astrological world is relatively quiet at the moment, and the situation is about to shift. This Full Moon finds the Jupiter/Uranus conjunction waning but still in effect. Jupiter is on the last degree on Taurus, in a tight conjunction to Venus. Jupiter will move into Gemini on May 25, breaking the intensity of this conjunction which has been in effect since last August.


The shift of Jupiter into Gemini is important. The emphasis will move from a deep awareness of earthly embodiment to the interests of the mind. Although Earth matters will remain at the forefront (Uranus will begin its transition into Gemini in July 2025), there will be new attention on the world of ideas. Our focus will begin to shift to discussion about solutions to our collective problems rather than being in reaction to situations we cannot control. In order to make this shift, we will need to accept our new reality.


This Full Moon takes place in Sagittarius – Sekhmet in Shamanic Egyptian Astrology. Sagittarius is a warrior sign, often associated with the warrior aspect of the Centaur – a Greek and Roman mythological archetype who is half human and half horse. In traditional astrology, the symbol of Sagittarius is a galloping Centaur aiming an arrow at an unseen target. Sagittarius is a fiery sign, passionate and committed to a cause.


We are at the beginning of a phase involving the narrowing of our focus. While Gemini is interested in a variety of experience, Sagittarius is focused on outcome. The variety Gemini brings can be overwhelming – so many ideas, so much stimulation. Sagittarius has the ability to narrow the focus, ignore what is not relevant, and target what matters most.
