May 28 – June 3
Full Moon in Sagittarius
What to expect: Culminations
What to watch out for: Leaping before we’re ready
What will it affect? Healing, learning, adventure, direction
The Full Moon is at 8 degree’s of Sagittarius on May 29th. The Sabian symbol for this full moon is “a mother with her children on stairs”. This Sabian symbol reminds me of a scene out of the Sound of Music. The governess, who will later become the legitimate mother of the seven children, stands on the spiral stairs with the children saying goodnight to a ballroom of party guests. She is their teacher, their caregiver and she lovingly helps them up the steps and off to bed. One of them, the oldest girl, wants to stay and socialize among the guests. The current teacher/future mother lovingly says “no, you’re not ready yet”. She’s almost there, but has a little more to learn! At this Full Moon, we know the path forward. We are getting ready. The party helps us to become clear. We want to meet that person, or learn that dance or wear that dress. All of this represents ambitions and adventures that initiate us into maturity. But we have some more learning to do. At the Full Moon, look around for that help! A loving motherly teacher will be there to help us with our direction and the next steps to take. The Full Moon is also sextile the North Node, the point in the sky responsible for taking us in the right direction. You can sure, that this loving teacher will give you the right directions and steps to take.
But we have some work to do first! Mercury is sextile Chiron, the wounded healer and so we get information at the Full Moon about what we first need to heal. Chiron is in Aries, so it favours Aries types of activities. It speaks of building confidence and maturity before we can take those big steps on our own. To help with the healing do things such as speaking up and asserting your wants and needs. Or explore other avenues for self-expression or self-discovery that help build confidence. The keyword here is test, try and explore.

What to expect: Conflict
What to watch out for: Hurt Feelings
What will it affect? Relationships, Ambitions, Family
There are always challenges. This week on June 2nd Venus is square Juno and the challenge will be balancing relationships. Venus in Cancer wants to hold her loved ones tight and in a square to Juno feels a little neglected by her relationship. Juno is in Aries making us busy exploring the world and ourselves. We may need to find ways to balance our relationships to avoid hurt feelings or a fight. Saturn is in Capricorn and is opposite Pallas in Cancer, so we have difficulty envisioning that balance. Our ambitions are getting in the way of seeing the possibility of balance and connection with our family and loved ones. A synthesis is possible.
Why? Venus Square Juno, Saturn Opposition Pallas
