The Full Moon, the moon phase for abundance, celebration and inner healing. To name a few of the energies that are connected to one of the most potent lunar phases. Known as the peak of the cycle - an energy you feel one way or the other. Especially when it is a Super Full Moon like on Tuesday, 14 June 2022.
During the peak of energy is when the breakthroughs, revelations and realizations come through - when we realize what we have been working on or how we have been living is no longer in alignment. We let go to create space for the new. This is the Full Moon energy at its most enlightened.
Yet there is always another side to the coin - the one of overwhelm, tension, grief and frustration. At times we need to grieve past versions of ourselves in order to let go and step into our fullest expression and power.
Whatever is your reality, this Full Moon, let it exist, observe it, unattach from a specific outcome or desire. This is what is needed to be felt for the next phase to come.
With the Sun in the talkative, witty and facts-orientated, Gemini, the moon has now journeyed to the adventurous, big-dreaming, Sagittarius. Out of all opposing signs, they are probably the most similar. In their core, they both crave wisdom, knowledge, the truth, and are passionate at getting this information across.
Both are known as mutable signs, meaning they help us transition into new energies into a more fixed energy of a season. This time we are transitioning into the abundant energies of summer.
Mutable signs are adaptable, embrace change and crave versatility in their every day routine.
Sagittarius was the one who would leave the village, wander far to obtain new wisdom, perspective to bring back and teach others what they learned. They are the natural students and teachers of life. Purpose is a big theme for Sagittarius. It is not only about obtaining knowledge, it is about understanding the purpose of what life even means. To travel afar, these beings needed to be unattached, otherwise they would have never dared to leave their comfort zone in the first place. This makes them freedom seekers and on the shadow side, meaning its low expression, as every sign has, it makes them uncommitted or even fear attachment and commitment to others.
Full Moon in Sagittarius
Sagittarius is represented by the symbol of the archer, who aims far, and the mythological creature, centaur, half man and half horse. It bridges the gap between the Earth and Heaven is the centaur of mythology, the learned healer whose higher intelligence forms a bridge between Earth and Heaven.
This Full Moon, we are being called to release any limiting beliefs in regards to our purpose in life. Possibly even redefine what purpose means for us. Looking back 6 months ago, what was our purpose or intentions back then we had on the New Moon in Sagittarius (4 December 2021)?
If you don’t already, I recommend you keep a Moon manifestation journal for you to be able to look back, reevaluate, and redefine your intentions of manifesting or healing. This always helps you to see: Where was my mindset some time ago? What changed? And what am I aiming for now? This helps us understand that we are ever evolving beings, and are fluid in our nature. We are meant to change, expand and redefine our intentions from some new moons ago. Remember to dream big in regards to what you desire to let go of. Sagittarius has an expansive, juicy, exciting spirit that loves to go deep into conversations with strangers on their travels that help them expand their mind. Curious, like their Gemini counterpart, is what keeps them going, knowing there will be something more to learn.
A Supermoon amplifies energy 10 to 16 times more which can mean you might be feeling the expansiveness and positivity from this Full Moon even more than usual. Or on the flip side, the self-righteousness, the need to wander far away, restlessness or tactlessness that goes with the low expression of Sagittarius. If you have Gemini, Sagittarius, Virgo or Pisces placements, you will be feeling this Full Moon the most. Having the Moon in Sagittarius sign is calling us to expand ourselves further in ways we could not have imagined otherwise.
What was your intention on the New Moon in Sagittarius, 4 December 2021, about roughly 6 months ago? Or your intention from the New Moon (two weeks ago)?
Did your intention manifest or what has changed since then?
What do you desire to let go of this Full Moon?
What is your relationship with your purpose? What limiting beliefs are you releasing in regards to your purpose?
What you need:
candle of the color of your choice
Empty clay pot
Piece of paper and pen
A photo/image connected to your purpose
This Full Moon, I invite you to light a candle in your sacred space or moon altar. Take a moment to go within and journal out what you are ready to release with this healing energy. Use the above reflection questions to help you go deeper within.
Take a moment to smudge your space to elevate energy while you create ritual and tune into the energy of what you are releasing. Call in your helping and compassionate spirit guides or ancestors for support. Use a feather to distribute the smoke around your space. Get every corner of your space as that is where stagnant energy resides the most.
Write on a piece paper your main intention of what you desire to release and with the candle, burn your intention. Drop it in the empty clay pot to continue to burn. Observe the flames: How quick does it burn? This can indicate how fast this theme is for you to heal. Slow burning means it is a bigger theme for you to heal. Fast burning means it is already in process to heal and will happen soon.
Tune into the emotions of how it would feel to release whatever it is you are letting go of. How much lighter, unattached, and more free you would feel. Know it is possible to step into your highest purpose and live this purpose out on all levels.
If you desire to take this work a few steps further, join us this Summer Solstice either in Meilen, Switzerland or online. We will tune into our desires for the upcoming 6 months on this powerful day of the Summer Solstice. A time to honor the Earth, give thanks to her abundance and everything we have received these 6 months of 2022.
Our in person gathering will take place on Sunday, 19 June 2022 and the online one on Tuesday, 21 June 2022.
