moonAstrology MAY 21, 2016

Early risers may encounter dissatisfaction or a lack of good options. Nothing last forever and a walk or new perspective can clear the mind.

The moon goes void-of -course/VOC* at 7:40 AM ET. Take advantage of a quality period for finishing old business. Excellent for therapeutic work, yoga and martial arts.

Once the Sagittarius Moon enters at 2:48 PM, you may notice a shift in mood.

An overall exuberance for a project floods in; whatever is on the table becomes bigger. Conversations explode, races intensify and parties pop. A tendency to take risks increases, so please choose yours with care.

The outcome of any initiative has an element of surprise. Keep in mind that Mercury is moving very slowly as it’s about to go direct tomorrow. This creates tension as ideas, machines and communications move at misaligned speeds.

In other words, messages may come later than intended or useful. This is not necessarily bad, but it may be inconvenient, ironic or too bad.

Nonetheless, spirits are high and people want to take action. Keep alert and enjoy the ride. The Sagittarius Full Moon: May 2016 is exact at 5:14 PM; it’s degree is 1°14”.

What is it about a bright curiosity for information that must be hidden? Is there something you would like to know, but avoid finding out?

Sometimes we continue on a well-worn path, simply because we cannot imagine an alternative. Change looms.

There is an ambivalence about receiving the gift, obtaining the knowledge. Yet it is delivered and sure to be a surprise. Prepare yourself to receive. Expect the unexpected.

Recall your New Moon intentions for this month and be open to receive a response, regardless of its packaging.

Whether this is positive or negative depends on if someone feels silenced by reason. On the other hand, the calm voice of logic may quiet emotional turmoil.

The Moon symbolizes mood, emotions, reactions, memory and how one nurtures. In Sagittarius, this impulse is informed by the need to obtain knowledge sometimes with a sense of righteousness and passion.

Fire signs tend to take action or sizzle on ignition. Emotions flare up but can also burn out, depending on the fuel supplied. The Sagittarius Full Moon is lit by the Gemini Sun, so information informs how and why one reacts. This can lead to a resolution or indicate a culmination of events. How this plays out comes from a story; is there one active in your life at this time?

The Sagittarius Full Moon offers a chance to integrate what one has learned and hone wisdom. It can also allow one to soften an entrenched perspective and accept more information. This particular Full Moon suggests that an upset or revelation may increase awareness.

*The Moon VOC/Void-of-Course… in Scorpio, you may find a lost object when you clean. If you’re trying to finish something up you may have trouble ending it.. take it as far to the crossroads and then step away. Silence is golden which may cause frustration if you need information… research other possibilities.. It might be better to curl up with a mystery, if possible. More about the Moon VOC
