Micro Full Moon
Full Moon in Sagittarius
Full Strawberry Moon
June 9, 2017
Can you see it? Or at least feel it? The summer scent is just a few weeks away and Mother Nature is making sure we know it! I have always related June to the Beatles song “Strawberry Fields Forever.” This is because it always reminded me of times when my family would jam pack everyone like sardines in a National Lampoon “Vacation” style station wagon and go to the local farm and pick strawberries.
But June is a special time. Not only is June the most popular time for marriages, it is also named after the Roman goddess Juno who was the protector of young women and marriages. Every marriage was blessed under her name. With the Strawberry scent and weddings of lifetimes on the horizon, what other wonderfulness does the Universe have for us?
Our official Super moon is not until December; however, we will be graced with a micro Full moon. When a moon overlaps with the zenith of the moon it is the furthest away from the Earth, and during a Super moon it is the closest. Therefore, it will be a beautiful micro strawberry full moon but it will be very far away from us…or at least it will seem that way, but it will still grace us, especially when it is Sagittarius. But will the Sagittarius slowly gallop or gracefully ride?
The answer is yet to be decided, but the tension or grace of Sagittarius moon will be felt by many as early as June 02, 2017 and continue to be a mystery until the 14th. Nevertheless, the energy will grace our sky in the friendly air of Gemini and in the hunt for the truth of Sagittarius on June 09, 2017. The Sagittarius will glow and the moon will be at its peak at approximately 9:09am EST and 6:09am PST at 19 degrees Sagittarius. However, by VPAT (Vedic Philosophical Ayurvedic Theories) it is in the sign of Scorpio. This is the only moon which I call idealistic.
The unwavering moon in Sagittarius has not been at this degree since 1930 and it may not even reach the degree of 19 for at least another 30 years. Perhaps it will come really close in 2025 at 20degrees.
While on the subject of 20 degrees, some Earth signs and those that have Earth in their chart Jupiter, which has been in Virgo (according to VPAT) August of 2016, and has been retrograde and moving direct all this time. However, the last retrograde in Virgo has been since January 28, 2017 but it is time to jump! As of the Full Moon Jupiter is moving direct.
Even though this can be a very lucky aspect for Sagittarius, I can’t say that everyone is going to be happy. This is especially true for Sagittarius as obstacles and slowdowns are possible; but there is a gift of endurance at the end of the tunnel. Saturn will move away from Sagittarius around the second or third week of June and move into Scorpio for their last karmic lessons until October 27, 2017. So, a sign of relief is coming but for now be persistent but not with pressure.
A full moon causes people to be extremely detached, vibrant, prepared, and focused on the benefits of everyone. The full moon gives us the opportunity to plant seeds, especially herbs and berries.
The Flaming Sagittarius Moon compels us to express justly and get straight to the heart of the matter. Conviction is strong, chitchat is out… big visions and lofty plans take shape in our minds. Take a little outing… read a book.
At times, this Full Moon can climax significant methodological or scientific progresses, or social changes and reforms. Computers and other hi-tech equipment can be subject to malfunction or other disturbances. Be on lookout against “the unexpected or unusual” around this time. People may present with some rather strange behavior patterns under this influence as well and sudden hostilities or separations.
The Moon in Sagittarius carries a period of exploration looking for freedom. People may feel more courageous, welcoming, and fun loving. It is a good time for sightseeing, interests and ideas, and for broadening the mind.
Like the Archer that signifies Sagittarius, people may have a preference toward looking for truth, sophisticated implications, and following perception, as well as flights of fancy. While the craving for autonomy will be strong, people may want to do what they want, when they want, and be spontaneous and liberated. These dispositions can cause agitation and a strong need for freedom.
Moon in Sagittarius is very truthful with her feelings. She is astute and metaphysical in emotional situations. She gifts others with admiration, compassion, and a sense of humor. She relies on telling it like it is, even if the truth harms. Sagittarius Moon needs others to be candid with her as well. She is intensely aggrieved by dishonesty. She has an aptitude for schooling others, and is an enthusiastic learner. Every sensitive trial is a chance for her to study, and to help others with the information she has enlarged.
The moon in Sagittarius is Truthful, Frank, Active, Hopeful, and Intelligent; but with all these energies we must all remain balanced. It is my suggestion that you purchase an Orange candle and carve your name through to the wick. Anoint the candle with sandalwood oil or Lavender oil and chant the Psalm 17.
You may also choose to recite a mantra every morning until the next moon cycle. Remember that with all applications of psalms and mantras realizing the preferred result is dependent upon the excellence of intention. When it comes to finding satisfying relationships, it is of the greatest importance to begin with a clear understanding of what your goal should be.
The mantras can be hard to pronounce for many but are a powerful source of energy. The mantras for Sagittarius moon are:
“Om Hreeng Kleeng Sauh”
(Om Hriing Kliing Suuuuah ha)
Om Shreem Devakrishnaya Urdhvashantaya Namah
“Gurubrihaspatirjeevah suracharyo vidaanvarah vaagisho dhishadon dirshashamshruh pitambaro yuvaa”
Please note I am not an astrologer, nor do I have the privilege to be called an astrologer. My theories and readings are based upon Vedic Philosophical Ayurvedic Theories. VPAT considers everything as a possibility and everything has a chance to be fixed if precautions, warnings, and diversions are incorporated. Additionally, astrological signs are just place holders for predisposition tendencies which are not completely fixed.
Wishing you the best of this magnificent Micro Strawberry Sagittarius Full Moon.
