Last Friday night, towards the end of dinner, my husband spotted Ricky Martin. He was almost unrecognizable, I thought, in rimless reading glasses and a plain, white, long-sleeved, t-shirt. But my husband is very good at this sort of thing and he was right. It was Ricky Martin, casually walking by with his husband. My sister-in-law, a card-carrying Sagittarius goddess, didn’t skip a beat. Before I knew it, she was up and chasing after him.
Tomorrow morning (Tuesday, May 29th at 7:19 AM (PDT)) we are invited to step into the Full Moon in Sagittarius. But FYI, if you’re the sort of person who charges your crystals outside (I AM!), under the light of the full moon, then do it tonight! Because tomorrow night she will already be in the wane and you want that energy when it’s at its peak. Sagittarius is an explosively charismatic and dynamic fire sign, that seeks truth in all realms. But for this wise and impassioned Centaur, truth isn’t just an idea, it’s a felt experience in the body. It’s a chord that rings out loud and clear. As my sister-in-law magnificently demonstrated, Sagittarius is the sign of TRUTH IN ACTION.
So, what does a Full Moon in Sagittarius mean for the rest of us? What are we supposed to do with all this fire energy in the sky? My advice is: We are supposed to use it to illuminate the truth about ourselves. Take some time, and TELL THE TRUTH ON YOURSELF. And if that sounds scary as hell, even more reason to do it.
Imagine you were a stranger experiencing your life for the very first time. What would you see? How would you perceive yourself? I bet the truth about your life is actually A WHOLE LOT BETTER than you realize. But our old stories, our inner critic, don’t let us receive our own greatness. We get so used to looking for problems everywhere, that we neglect to notice what is working out gorgeously.
To tell the truth on yourself will set you free. And I would encourage you to take a few minutes this evening, stand under the moon, and seek out the truth of your own life. Say them out loud, or write them down. What is the truth of what you have? What is the truth of what you want? And how can these truths be more than just ideas in your head– how can they find their way out into the world?
A SIMPLE RITUAL for the FULL MOON in SAGITTARIUS.
Stand outside under the moon.
Close your eyes.
Visualize yourself in a golden egg of light.
Imagine the moonlight filling up your egg.
Breathe in the light, let it penetrate every cell of your being.
And then ask, out loud: WHAT IS THE TRUTH OF MY LIFE?
Sit still, listen for the answer or answers (maybe write it down).
I had a great therapist a few years back who told me this, he said: The paradoxical theory of change is that until you ACCEPT THE TRUTH of your circumstances, you can’t change a damn thing. So, if you are one of those people who like to tell yourself a made up story about your life, as opposed to facing the cold hard facts, I get it– that shit is hard. But if you want anything in your life to change, to get better, to evolve and transform, then you have to look it right in the eye and CALL IT OUT. Only after you have named the truths you see in your life, will you will be able to release them. Fantasyland is a nice place to escape to, I get it, I’ve been there– I’ve got actually got dual citizenship, believe me. But if you live your whole life there, your reality will remain unchanged.
I understand that sometimes we are too entrenched in our own lives to clearly identify the patterns. Sometimes we are too close to the windshield to see our own blind spots. So in an effort to help you on your truth-seeking journey; I am going to give HOUR-LONG TAROT READINGS AT A SPECIAL PRICE (but only until June 13th, so don’t delay!). If you’ve never gotten your cards read, it can be kinda mind blowing. They are profoundly insightful and healing. It’s not fortune telling, it’s a tool to help you see what energies are most available to you. It’s like seeing a spiritual snapshot of your life, right now. And once you see the big picture, you can begin to change any little detail you like.
Alright, my loves, that’s all for this cycle. Take care of yourselves, tell the truth and enjoy the start of the Summer. I’ll see you in two weeks for the NEW MOON in GEMINI!
