This is our last week of Gemini Season and we start our week off with the energy of a powerful Full Moon in Sagittarius. This week is not an "easy" week to say the least. We have a lot of "opposition" energy which can cause conflicted feelings around how we integrate both halves or sides to ourselves or a problem we are dealing with. The word "Integration" is key when we are dealing with a week full of opposing energy as we have to find a way to balance the two sides that are in conversation with each other. A Full Moon is also an oppostion, an opposition between the Moon and the Sun. The Moon is our emotional world, the Sun is our sense of self and expression of who we are in the world. We have to learn to balance our inner and outer worlds all of the time, and like the Chariot card in the tarot, this integration of the inner and outer worlds will be the primary focus for the week ahead.
Our Summer Solstice, which represents Midsummer is also this week and takes place on Friday. This is also a powerful time for honoring the polarity between Masculine and Feminine energy, and the things that are birthed out of this unity whether it be a human form, a creative project, or a deep spiritual insight. This unification of opposites is not just in the physical sense, but in the spiritual sense as well. We all have yin and yang energy operating within and around us. Integration of the Yin and Yang is constantly being required of us and it is during Midsummer that the ancients used to honor this time with fertility and sexuality rituals.
Tarot Cards for the week include:
Judgement, The Lovers, The Chariot, The Devil, Temperance, The Moon, The High Priestess, Ace of Cups, 2 of Cups, 3 of Cups, 7 of Swords, 8 of Swords, 9 of Swords, 7 of Wands, 8 of Wands, 9 of Wands.
Full Moon in Sagittarius 1:31 AM
Moon Void of Course 1:31 AM
Moon enters Capricorn 9:13 AM
Our Strawberry Moon in Sagittarius hit in the wee hours of the morning at 1:31 AM. For many during the weekend it was apparent that a lot of people were feeling anxious or uncomfortable with themselves. Feelings of anxiety around work, who we are in our lives, and what we are doing with ourselves were enhanced leading up to this Full Moon, and depending on what we do to work through these feelings, we may feel this way today as well. Gemini energy when in Opposition to Sagittarius energy can enhance our minds into overdrive around evaluating our belief systems and values and whether or not we are living in line with them. Those of us who are living in line with our value systems may feel less anxious during this full moon and more confident around what we are putting into the world. But for those of us who seem to be “going through the motions” not consciously trying to line our values up with the daily actions or thoughts in our lives, this Full Moon may feel uncomfortable and like we are being forced to acknowledge parts of ourselves or our lives that are not in sync with what our soul purpose is in this life.
Full Moons are a time for release. It is important during this transit that we let go and remove any limiting belief systems that are keeping us from living a life more in line with our “truth.” We can think of the Judgement card in the Tarot as the energy for this Full Moon. When Judgement day arrived, and you are stripped away of everything you have accomplished, who will you be? Is the person at the core of your being someone you are proud of? Or is this person being drowned by egoic desires and false tales?
When we strip ourselves down to our naked selves, we remove our projections of who or what we perceive as a valid existence. We are more likely to see ourselves as the same as everyone else on a spiritual level in regard to all of us being connected to this experience. How do we treat our fellow brothers and sisters? Plants? Animals? We may say what our values are when asked, but do our actions speak that? If you are having feelings of doubt, insecurity, shame, or guilt, strip parts of yourself away until you find the root cause of this feeling. Only once you have found the root of your insecurity and let it go, can you begin to heal.
With the Moon entering Capricorn, the shadow of the Full Moon will continue to impact us throughout the day, but the feelings of Capricorn may come more into focus. The Moon has its detriment in Capricorn, meaning it is not the most positive place for it. We can become rigid and emotionally blocked when the Moon is in Capricorn, but we can also find a way to become emotionally grounded during this time. Sometimes the boundary and rigidity of Capricorn can help us anchor our feelings if we are open to it.
Strong Aspects During the Day PST
Moon Trine Uranus in Taurus 7:29 PM
This earth Trine allows for us to become grounded in the evening hours in ways that may be new or different than what we would usually gravitate towards. We may experience some sort of positive change that allows for us to see things in a new way around our physical world.
Moon in Capricorn
With the Moon in Capricorn we may be focused on our work and getting things done in a practical way. This can be a good time for evaluating our relationship to our goals and priorities. We may feel some confusion during the day with some of the other transits, so this may not be the best time to make any large decisions about our goals but it could be a good day for reevaluating our strategies or plans.

Saturn RX in Capricorn Sextile Neptune in Pisces 4:40 AM
This is a powerful transit that we will feel over the next few weeks and we have already been feeling for most of the month. We are in a place where our intuition when it comes to our work and physical world is operating from a deep place and we are able to sense or feel things at a heightened state when it comes to our plans and moving forward on them. We may have prophetic or psychic insights during this time and we may not know why we know certain things, we just know them. Someone from our past may even come into our lives again at this time to help us with something in the present that we are working towards. Memories of where we have learned certain skills may come up and we may work through new layers around who we are in the world and how we are successful. This is a good time for being open to learning ways that you can use creative visualization to help manifest the world you want to be living in. Vision boarding is a positive thing to do with this energy this month and over the next few weeks.
