What do you believe?
You know when you're spinning out and your ego is telling you how wrong you are and the voices that are fueled by fear seem to be winning....what do you do to right the ship in those moments? If you could freeze the frame in that moment and give the TED TALK to an audience leaning into your every word, what would you say? How would you explain it? What do you believe?
Hello Full Moon in Sagittarius at 23°. What rules are you living your life by? There are rules for everything. Driving a car. Going to College. Playing Jenga. You would think that one would want to consider the directions for living a purposeful human existence. What are the directions? Who wrote them? There are so many conflicting instruction manuels. Which one do I choose?
Well, I imagine if you are like many (most?) humans, your family told you what you believe. You're a Morman, a Jew, a Catholic, an Athiest. These are rulebooks people have enjoyed for millinia. That's why they live in the 9th house, natural home to Sagittarius. Sag holds all of the different ways that the human family has attempted to codify the rules of life.
So, many of of us are recovering [enter an organized religious adherent]s. Forced to endure whatever belief system your parents forced you to endure. And maybe it's working for you. Maybe you've got questions. In my opionion, no organized system of belief is worth its salt if it doesn't leave room for questions.
So, you're spinning out, and have no idea what is going on in your life. What. Do. You. Do? What is your ultimate truth? What do you know to be so? What do you choose to put your faith in? These are questions that the Sagittarius full moon invites us to contmplate.
What planets are the moon communicating directly with? What are the lunar relationships between planets as of yestereve? The moon is/was trine Mars and Chiron, sextile Saturn, square Neptune. Mars and Chiron conjunct suggests there is work afoot on some childhood stuff.
What beliefs about yourself are getting triggered and what is the work that needs to be done to get your healing on? Personally, my Chiron and Mars are conjunct natally in the first house. I am dealing with fiery skin in the form of a full body rash. My mother (moon also in the mix) was the first one to point out that the skin on my face is breaking out. Thanks mom. My first house Chiron issue is never feeling beautiful in my dark skin in the suburbs. I'm old enough to know that we're all beautiful. And as far as my rash is concerned, it's all about the cooling effect of aloe vera. So what cools you when you are feeling fired up?
The moon sextile the retrograde Saturn is helping us to deal gracefully with whatever Saturn has slowed down in our lives. Saturn in Aquarius has wants us to think about about our cooperative alliances. Who are we working with and why has the project suddenly stalled? What can you learn from this? What beliefs help you to make it through? A friend of mine, the brilliant artist Gregory Corbino, suffered a disappointing delay on an outside project that he had prepared for for months. The weather was the culprit. Air. Saturn in an air sign. Our texts that day were all about the power of Mind and Choice. "When I wish it was different, my heart breaks and the tears come. When I accept what has happened, I do not suffer. I feel peace." Yes, Gregory. He was able to be comforted by his beliefs.
The Neptune square the moon cautions us to not let our thinking get too muddied. Be carefule with the tendency to want to drown out your sorrows with wine and weed. Allow yourself to enjoy your creative outlets. Be diligent when it comes to hiding the truth from yourself. Where do you want to stick your head in the sand? Instead, consider some creative problem solving.
So, that's what I got on this day after the fact, people. Find 23 degrees of Sagittarius in your chart and consider what your beliefs as far as that house is concerned.
