The dynamic Sagittarius Full Moon on June 20, 2016 -- the second Full Moon in Sagittarius in a row -- reveals the tension between our mental process and the words we actually speak. Unfortunately, mental Mercury's hard aspects to methodical Saturn and visionary Neptune during this Full Moon make it difficult to realize our dreams without proper planning and plenty of hard work. On one hand, Neptune inspires our fantasies; we imagine the world as it could be rather than as it is. On the other hand, Saturn brings us back down to earth; we must deal with the facts rather than the fictions we create. Fortunately, these energies can coexist if we're willing to be serious about reaching our goals.
Rick Levine explains this Full Moon:
Although we may experience the fruition of our recent thoughts near this Full Moon, we can't hold on to them. This moment in time is fleeting, especially because the Full Moon is at the very last degree of idealistic Sagittarius, and slips into calculating Capricorn less than an hour later. Nevertheless, the looming presence of the earthy Capricorn energy is a helpful reminder to rein in our big ideas so we can turn them into reality. This Full Moon is also tied to the Summer Solstice, happening at 6:43 pm EDT, when the Sun slips into tender Cancer. Concentrating on the future works in our favor only if we sink beneath the noisy world of words and nurture the connection with our feelings now.
