The summer solstice happens this time every year and we are blessed with a full moon every month. But only once in about 30 years do the two occur within each other. Happy Full Moon Summer Solstice! There's so much juicy information from so many wise women that I felt the need to share it in this post. Get your pen & paper ready for all those a-ha! moments. This major time for change that I've been ranting about for the past few months is coming full circle.
From Lena Stevens of the Power Path:
Once every 30+ years, the Summer Solstice (Northern Hemisphere) or Winter Solstice (Southern Hemisphere) and Full Moon fall on the same day. This is a rare and powerful event and should be well honored.
Make sure that during this time you stay focused on the positive, on the doors that are opening, and on the potential, instead of dwelling on any fear, resistance, judgment or negativity. What you put your energy and focus on will grow in this fertile time so make sure it is what you want.
The Solstice is always a good time to honor the Sun and the life giving energy it makes available to us on this planet. Any ceremony honoring the sun or the spirit of fire is appropriate. Release something you are leaving behind. Welcome something in that is new, fertile and rich with possibilities.
From astrologer, Patricia Liles:
Full Moon is paired within 12 hours with the powerful point of solstice boosting both their energies. Wowser! That’s astrological gold! We have the unusual situation of having the second Full Moon in Sagittarius in a row. Last Full Moon in May was in the first degree of Sagittarius, and now we have Full Moon in the last degree of Sag. Initiation and culmination are emphasized and magnified. The last degree of any sign is a bridge to the new way of being, integrating and then releasing all that has gone before.
...we are compelled to look at how we think, communicate, and receive/perceive information. The bow of the Centaur, Sagittarius’ symbol, sends our vision far out into the unknown and expands our horizons to new ideas, cultures and peoples where tolerance, knowledge and wisdom are developed. The enthusiasm and inspiration of this fire sign is expressed here especially with expansive and philosophical Jupiter as ruler. Sagittarius rules the hips and is how we move forward in our life’s aspirations.
We have great opportunity to turn this summer time frame into preparation for major growth and movement in our ability to align our hearts, our lives, our vision, our thoughts with Spirit and center our selves in true power like never before. We must strengthen our personal and collective containers to receive these gifts; otherwise, we cannot hold the increased energies coming our way.
We pass the second Saturn/Neptune square on June 17 and look to the final pass on September 10. Think pressure cooker. Saturn wants us to show up, do the work, accept the limitations, challenges, or cosmic reprimands, and put into demolition anything that just isn’t working and is no longer in line with what we want to embody. … We’re getting ’matured’ by cosmic forces (Saturn and Neptune working together) and readied for the next five years…Neptune can reveal where we are separate from Spirit creating despair, disillusionment, and disappointment, where we are lost in our personal (or collective) fog putting us to sleep to avoid emotional suffering, leading to denial of what’s true and also down the rabbit hole of addictive habitual behaviors (eating, projecting our anger, believing the media, complaining, self undoing….)”. To use Saturn with strength, put energy in what you are for, not what you are against. Saturn concentrates; Neptune dissolves. NOTE: Come back to your spirit. Notice where you are checking out and come back into alignment. What is your spirit calling for? What is dulling you? Pay attention, as it is time to align with your inner truth, rather than pushing it away. All you need to do is align, the action items will reveal themselves as you go along.
From astrologer Chani Nicholas:
This is the second full moon in a row in Sagittarius. It puts a double emphasizes not only the house that contains Sagittarius in our personal astrology charts, but also on the themes of Sagittarius for us collectively.Sagittarius is the archer, the rambler, the gambler, the one who bets on hope and runs on faith. Sagittarius moves. Swiftly. Sagittarius seeks. Endlessly. Seeks meaning. Seeks experience. Seeks the horizon. The archer can’t stop for fear of missing out on the next adventure. This is the sign that wants to run with the big questions. The ones that are sure to send us on the most open-ended quests. This full moon trines Uranus, the planet that begs us to bust out. Out of the old. Out of the out-dated dogma. Out of the old fear-mongering maniacal melodrama. Out into the streets where change can happen. Where change needs to happen.
From astrologer Molly Hall :
The Sagittarius Moon is jolted awake with Uranus in a stimulating trine from Aries. It’s one of those moments, you know the kind, where the pieces fuse together in a new awareness— and suddenly the future looks brighter…
What’s outstanding, too, is that Mercury (in Gemini) forms a triggering T-square with Saturn-Neptune. If you’re being triggered by life, and overwhelmed, this could be one of those breakthrough moments.
My tip for this peak is to trust your higher moral conscience, and sense of what’s true.
If you sense you’re drowning in confusion, the steps to awareness could be giant ones now.
You can blaze your own trail with moral courage, an open mind and willingness to question all you know…
…it’s possible to see through many filters, and have an exhilarating breakthrough — the kind that becomes a kind of addiction to truth seekers.
From Divine Harmony:
This Full Moon is at 29’32 Sagittarius- activating the karmic completion degree which occurs at the last degree of every sign…So we have this image of not only chapters completing but perhaps a whole volume of life ending.
The Sun/Moon opposition straddles the 29th degree of Gemini and Sadge- showing that major crisis points, completions and endings are occurring in regards to our perception of Truth and our capacity to live aligned by it…
The desire to escape is strong right now and yet the path of mastery requires we stay the course, stay embodied and show up to do the work.
...From now until July 7th we are in deeply karmic territory in relationships, commitments and contracts in our lives. There are definite major karmic completions going on right now. Whether significant relationships are ending for good or longtime karmic patterns of relating to others is what is ending (or both)- there’s some deep stuff to navigate in the realm of relationships…
