The Moon is Full in Sagittarius today at 9:10am eastern time. My Full Moon divination is late and I am blaming the moon. And the planets. This Sagittarius moon has been building all week, blending to extraordinary heights with the other cosmic plays happening, and will be affecting us for the next few days, as well as energetically for potentially months.
The planetary influences now are a powerful alignment of forward moving energies with a big fiery kick from the Full Moon in Sagittarius. See what areas of your world are beginning to move after some downtime or stagnation. Pay attention and follow the beneficial energies. Allow what is released to really, truly GO.
On Tuesday, Venus entered Taurus which is her home sign and remains there until entering Gemini on July 4. Our Venusian Queen loves being back in her Taurus palace and we get the full effects of her delight. She is activating our urges for beauty and passion. Look for some stimulating vibes coming to relationships, as well as generous flow in the prosperity and abundance departments. When Queen Venus is happy, everybody is happy. All Hail the Queen!
Both Venus and Mercury are now in their “home “signs of Taurus and Gemini, respectively, giving added emphasis to their importance right now. Venus will highlight our relationships, stability and finances over the next few weeks. Where is our comfort zone? What makes us happy? Feeling at peace within ourselves becomes a priority.
Mercury in its home sign of Gemini becomes the “busy-bee” Messenger of the zodiac. The pace of your communications and business will pick up. It may seem like there are not enough hours in the day to get everything done, so plan ahead, and take advantage of the Venus energy: be good to yourself! Astrology Update from Mary Lomando
Also on Tuesday, Mercury returned home to Gemini and will remain there until June 21. We forget the chaos of Mercury Retrograde when the cosmic messenger is in his flow. There are some interesting (read trickster-like) aspects with the Sun and Saturn coming up, so enjoy happy Mercury in the next week. Communication, travel, business, tech all move forward at lightning speed, picking up the pace, especially with the beneficial influence of Venus, the Moon, AND Jupiter …
TODAY. IT IS HAPPENING! Our beloved Jupiter is going direct after being in retrograde since February 6. For me personally, I am in the midst of my Jupiter Return and to have it back in Libra is like a huge sigh of relief. Jupiter rules Sagittarius, the Full Moon, and hooks up with glorious Venus in Taurus for some magic making movements.
Friday brings with it a powerful full moon in Sagittarius. Powerful because as this full moon peaks, its ruler, Jupiter, changes direction. Jupiter also rules all things that expand exuberantly. The day any planet, especially such an auspicious one, changes directions, is a day to mark on the calendar as its effects become all the more obvious and tangible. Jupiter is currently in Libra, a sign ruled by Venus. With Venus now in Taurus and Jupiter direct, both benefics are able to help us do and make optimum good out with what we’ve got. Chani Nicholas
All this is to say … buckle up for a wild, abundant ride! I have been moving altars, cleaning temple space, creating new connections, and standing in the this glorious flooooooow. Working within the rhythms, the cycles, being present within the current energies can benefit you and your intention setting tremendously!
In the midst of all the activity this week, I made a commitment to go with what seemed to be in the flow. The two card system did not want to work this week, so instead, I am sharing a new tray of oracle cards that I spruced up.
Take a deep breath. What card catches your eye? Pick the one that you are attracted to and read the magic of it below!
1 – FROG MEDICINE – Frog brings us the energy of NEW – think renewal, rebirth! Frog also calls on us to be mindful about what we need to grow, evolve, like a tadpole into a frog. What transformation is ready to happen? With planets in their ruling signs and coming out of retrograde, you may find that energy feels new for you. Take advantage of it and commit to the cleanse of leaving the old behind, renewing with transformation and “hopping” forward. Another great aspect of frog, is the reminder to sing your own song. Frogs sing their mates to them – is your song getting out there to attract the partnerships and collaborations that benefit you? Card is from the Wild Unknown Animal Deck
2 – DECISIONS – Are you at a crossroads? Have you been waffling about a choice or decision that needs to be made? You need to commit. It is time to take the clues from your Cosmic Guides and move something forward. Which also means letting something go, but chances are that you are only hanging on out of habit. The current influence of Saturn on the other planets and this moon is to not only give us some grounding and focus amidst high flying energies but also to acknowledge our hard work, the dues paid, the time spent. Staying in the crossroads means that you cannot reap what you have sown. Make a choice! Card is from Connected and Free – the Alchemist’s Oracle
3 – THE REBEL – Another confirmation of NEW and forward movement (don’t you love how these are all syncing up??). From the guidebook:
The Rebel represents an energy that comes from within and is unapologetically authentic. Don’t be afraid to use the rebel energy to create new situations. This takes getting into higher vibrations and consciousness.
The Rebel is ready to take a chance on HER Self. Ready to make a move that is out of the box, spontaneous, unexpected. Throw the old way of thinking out the window. Put YOUR signature on the next iteration, on your newest creation. As James Dean said, “Dream as if you’ll live forever. Live as if you’ll die today.”. Card from the Noa Knafo Visionary Cards
4 – BLUE KYANITE – I always have blue kyanite around. It is a stone of alignment, of visions to make manifest, of powerful inner journeys that can be expressed in the outer world as well. The blue brings high level vibrations for the throat chakra and third eye. Kyanite both grounds and energizes. As Above, So Below. Step into the alignment of the planetary forces and bring some blue kyanite to expand and bring dreams into fruitful realities! Card is from the Crystal Oracle
5 – NINE OF PENTACLES – The Nine of Pentacles in the Wild Unknown Tarot is called Happy, Healthy Home. I smiled when it appeared, because this past week was so full of making my home feel beautiful and cleaning temple space. This is where Venus in Taurus also steps in and demands some luxury, special touches like light and flowers, and urges to cleanse and adorn our sacred spaces and homes. Since this is also the week of the ancient Roman festival of Vestalia, we are again in alignment. Create your sacred space. Carve out your sanctuary. Your home is your castle, CLAIM IT! Card from the Wild Unknown Tarot Deck
6 – THE DANCE UNVEILING – This card represents new clarity. Prepare for a situation, an intention, a craving to become more clear and more attainable. I call this Kuan Yin oracle deck my magic deck. I use them for powerful intuitive prompts and this one is a doozy. It coaches patience to allow the revelation come to you, but also indicates that it will confirm your intuition. Think about that. You already know. (Because you are magic!) Allow the knowing to unfold, trust the message, and step into the YES. Card from Kuan Yin Oracle
7 – PROSPERITY – I AM TRUSTING – What is wealth? And how are you receiving it and welcoming it? Wealth is not just monetary, as Venus and Jupiter will show us. Are you truly open? There is a prayer for that!
Change me Divine Beloved into one who knows You alone are the source of all prosperity. Let me live in gratitude, trusting every need is handled. Release me from the prison of jealousy. That alone is true wealth.
8 – WHITE LADY: MOTHER OF PEARL – The White Lady is Goddess in the forms of Kuan Yin, White Tara, Mother Mary, the gentle and nurturing Mothers who grace us with their pearls of wisdom and healing love. This card represents a respite from turmoil. A chance to take a breath which can be a great boon in this active lunation. Step into the encircling energy of these gentle Goddesses, take a deep breath, and just BE. This card can also be a reminder to protect how you share your energy, a literal warning to not cast your pearls before swine, so to speak. Renew. Heal. Absorb the Love. Bless. Card is from Tantric Dakini Oracle
