The Sagittarius Full Moon is also a Lunar Eclipse. It occurs on 7:12 am ET at 14°14”. Full moons by their nature, offer a time when the integration of opposites is available.

With an eclipse, this opportunity becomes more loaded and often more volatile. If you are juggling demanding forces at this time, don’t try to force resolution. Instead, look for an opening in understanding or change in attitude.

When you’re dealing with polar opposites, the best you can hope for is comfort on the balance bar. Depending on where the full moon lights in your birth horoscope, indicates the area of life highlighted at this time. It could involve a neighborhood situation, something between siblings, a legal issue or education goal. It’s main root stems from communication and outreach.

The Sabian Symbols** for this full moon are as follows: The moon is “The groundhog looking for its shadow” and the sun is “Two Dutch children talking”.

Both phrases conjure images of two; the groundhog seeks his shadow sets up the first, which is paradoxical. Why does the groundhog seek that which spooks him? Because his reason for diving back into his hole is purportedly that the shadow scares him. Therefore, since he seeks it, he is inviting a date with his subconscious (Shadow).

The two Dutch children, also symbolize the unconscious, because the Netherlands is a country that is party under sea-level.

This particular full moon, seems to be an opportunity for self-revelation and/or unearthing a stumbling block in a relationship with another. Look for a doorway of consciousness to open, no matter how fleeting, on this day.

Pay attention to any symbolic hints, like an animal you don’t usually see or a signpost that catches your eye. The language of symbolism is all around us and clues are available to the alert.
The other celestial event is that Neptune turns retrograde at 5:05 pm. Depending on your relationship with the planet of illusion, spirituality and creativity, this may slip by you or effect you like a sudden need to sleep or check-out. Plan an quiet evening, or group mediation. Moderation or abstinence of alcohol and drugs is advised.

** We are still in the process of understanding the Sabian symbols, which were channeled in 1925. The spiritualist astrologer Marc Edmund Jones, took Elsie Wheeler, a clairvoyant confined to a wheelchair to a San Diego park with a project. He put a symbol for each of the 360∞ of the zodiacal wheel on 360 cards. She proceeded to come up with visual phrases for each one of them. They were done in random order and they have a magic that is hard to decipher, yet feels totally right.
