How Will Full Moon In Sagittarius Affect You?


On June 17, we have the Full Moon in Sagittarius, aka the Strawberry Moon. Learn how it affects you.

Get ready for a special full moon tonight, which is referred to as the Midsummer Moon as it will be present just a few days before the summer solstice sets which is on June 21. Only in the Northern Hemisphere of course, while the folks in the north are enjoying summer and warm (and hot) weather, and the folks in the Southern Hemisphere are having to bundle up and make hot cocoa because it is winter - we all will be affected by the energies of this full moon. 

Other names for this full moon are the Strawberry Moon (my favorite name for it), or the Hot Moon, or according to the Cherokee culture, it is referred to as the Green Corn Moon. This is the Sagittarius full moon, as the sun is in Gemini, and the moon is in Sagittarius. 

The importance of this full moon is that we are now challenged to look at the big picture and to look at what we need to do in order to reach our goals. That means we will be faced with some uncomfortable truths when it comes to the reasons as for why we are not anywhere near reaching our goals. For instance, if you had wanted to lose 20 lbs by the end of the summer but you have been slacking off over the last few weeks which has been making this appear unattainable - then you are going to realize that you have been slacking off by the fact that either the new jeans you had purchased are feeling snug or you had decided to step on the scale and you had gained 5 lbs!

Well, this means you will be horrified to have made this discovery. And after that initial reaction, you will need to look into what you need to do in order to go back on track so you can attain that goal. Perhaps you will need to extend the time to early fall since you had slacked off for a few weeks in order to reach that goal. And, you will be forced to become honest with yourself which means you will need to start tracking your food intake, as well as your activity on your app or by journaling it the old fashioned way. 

The same would apply if you had found that you had spent too much money over the past month because you had gotten your credit card bill and it was a whopper! That means it is time to start budgeting once again. However, as uncomfortable as these truths may be, consider it a kick in the butt you need in order to make the most of your summer by staying in shape and spending only what is within your budget. 

And, one thing to keep in mind when you are re-evaluating your goals, be sure to set realistic expectations. You may be inclined to keep your original goal as far as losing 20 lbs by the end of the summer for instance, especially since you would have slacked off. However, that likely will not be too realistic. And the reason you may be inclined to not look beyond that is that optimistic and jovial Jupiter is making a square to dreamy and unrealistic Neptune. That will shift you away from reality and cause you to dream too big. 

However, the saving grace with this is that stern Saturn that is all about business is forming a sextile to dreamy Neptune which will help ground you somewhat. That is what will make you realize that you cannot get rid of 20 lbs by the end of the summer and will need more time to work at it so you will extend the date to attain your goal. That is just one example.
