Tuesday, May 29th, 2018 the full moon will rise in Sagittarius. This is a powerful full moon and many of us will experience some big shifts with the coming and going of this moon. Through these shifts will come strong opposition and it is important to remain strong over the coming weeks. This full moon also coincides with the day Uranus enters Taurus (for the next 7 years), which is one way the big shifts will be fueled.
Why is the full moon a powerful spiritual event?
A full moon occurs when the Sun is opposite the Moon, meaning the Earth is directly between to the two. This opposition will highlight opposing forces and/or polarities in your life such as your work versus home, or what you need versus what you want. Inner tension and external pressures can lead to personal conflict and crises that drain your energy. By using the moon to help release all that no longer serves you, it allows you to bring clarity into your situations and decisions. Your home, family, and intimate relationships come into sharper focus following a full moon.
The lunar qualities of emotions and instincts reach their peak at a full moon which is why it is so important to release. Subconscious awareness allows for an impartial and balanced look at both yourself and the personal relationships you have surrounded yourself with. Use your increased emotional strength and intuition to overcome any relationship challenges. And focus on the lesson to be learned through every struggle. You will clearly see any relationship dynamics or negative feelings causing disharmony which allows you to make the most of this cycling spiritual event.
What makes this May full moon one to keep your eye on?
Energetically, the cosmos has a lot going on this full moon. Some of our powerful fixed starts find themselves in impact positions and the planets find themselves intruding on our will power over our emotions.
The militant fixed stars(the Moon is with Antares and the Sun with Aldebaran) will urge you to go on the offensive and take what you want, regardless of the consequences. So it is important to listen to the wise words of elders, respect your traditions and personal beliefs, and learn from your own personal history.
The polarities in this full moon mean you can expect strong opposition if you enter a contest, however, risk often comes with a cost. Winners have a lot to gain from this full moon but losers will pay a high price. So if you start a fight or take a large risk, you should be confident, self-reliant and realistic about your chances of success. Remember to stay true to who you are.
Those who have a hard time taking control of their emotions may find themselves on a roller coaster the next few weeks (until the next new moon on June 13th). This full moon (semisextile Saturn) could create a juggling act between ego gratification and heavy feelings of responsibility. You will be tested fully and patience and self-discipline will need to prevail if you wish to exit this cycle with a higher vibration. In doing so, you will be able to capitalize on the benefits this moon has to offer.
With the moon also being sextile Mars, it will ignite the passion inside you and allow you to bring enthusiasm into your life, for both personal and professional aspects. This comfort of welcomed attractiveness will boost your usual feelings of intimacy (be on the lookout for Scorpios). It will be a great time for spending time with your partner. If you are single, go out and meet some new people. The passion ignited will also bring bravery and strong sense of pride for those closest to you.
What is important about Uranus moving into Taurus?
The coming weeks is a time for human beings to begin a path to collectively raise their vibration and consciousness. The cosmic groundwork has been laid for us to make the major shift from fear into love. Uranus will assist us in understanding energy: our own, others, surrounding, and how to know the differences. An awareness will find its way into our consciousness of our own energetic state and the interactions we have with other individuals in our lives.
Taurus the sign of love embodied, is encouraging us to release everything in our lives that is not of love. We are love beings, and in doing so said release, we allow awareness of our own bodies to remain apart of our consciousness. This will allow us to find toxic parts of the body (which usually are caused by toxic relationships or situations from outside the body).
Expand your consciousness now! The cosmos are aligned for you to do so. Say yes to the things you really love. This will put you on a path that will raise the vibration of your soul and allow you to enjoy all life has to offer.
