The Sun’s first full day in Sagittarius begins with the Moon waxing through the late degrees of Taurus. The Taurus Moon steadies the daylight hours, carrying matters forward on its solid shoulders. Sunset, however, sees the Moon cross from steady Taurus into talkative, speedy Gemini. It is in the sign of the Twins that the Moon reaches perfect Fullness.
This Full Moon, with the Sun in Sagittarius and Luna in Gemini, highlights the relationship between the big and the small, the far and the near, the whole and its parts. The Sun and Jupiter in Sagittarius shine on what is great and meaningful. They frame life as a quest, an epic tale. The Moon in Gemini, however, throws its beams across a hundred details and ideas, illuminating this lofty side of life as a buzzing hive of actions, errands and conversations. Life is, of course, both great and small, epic and mundane, and this lunation is a chance to reconcile the two, to make sure that we haven’t forgotten one side or the other.
In addition to the Sun and Moon’s clear juxtaposition, there is Mars in Pisces, tightly perpendicular to both. Mars speaks to a busy set of weeks to follow. Between long- and short-term goals, there is much that needs to get done. Mars also adds a rowdiness to the night itself, although its configuration to tempering Jupiter and conjunction with the dreaming star Fomulhaut suggest that the fire it adds will be enough to heat things up, but not burn them.Horoscopes & Ongoing Influences
