Grand Fire Trine, Sagittarius Full Moon 6-9-2017

Sagittarius Full Moon

This full moon is shaping up to have the heady swiftness of the last new moon, another Grand Fire Trine forming with the Moon in Sagittarius and the Sun in Gemini. This fire trine forms between Saturn in Sagittarius at 24 degrees, Uranus in Aries at 27 degrees, and the North Node in Leo at 27 degrees.

Trines increase the velocity of energy, so we can expect relevant events affected by these planets and hours to increase in speed and impact. In the case of the node, the head of the dragon where our karmic future lies in the sign of creative expression and fun, now might be a nice time to engage ourselves in the drama of the moment. All the world is a stage — so act accordingly to make the most of it! With the moon sharing space with Saturn, the lord of restraint and constraints, it might bring with it a strange feeling of opposites — the emotional mood of the moon will pull Saturn’s frown upright, as happy-go-lucky Sagittarius wants more fun and the energy of the trine will be hard to suppress with Uranus in Aries continuing to throw surprises out of left field, emphasizing the needs of the self. With the sun in Gemini and moon in Sagittarius polarity, travel may feature, communications will be dynamic and lead to surprises and shifts in circumstances. Hopefully, you behaved yourself while Mars was in Gemini and your mouth didn’t get you into trouble, or else you’ll be dealing with the fallout from that New Moon Grand Fire Trine last month.

The trine is the best part of the moon. What we have left are the clashing energies of inconjuncts, squares, and semi-squares, most notably, the influence of Jupiter in Libra at 13 degrees inconjunct Neptune at 14 degrees Pisces. Our expanding friends, connections, relationships are unable to mediate with Neptune’s foggy and inconsistent nature in Pisces. People will be attempting to keep the difficult parts of their lives separate, trying to maintain their relationships while giving themselves to addiction, escapism, or maybe someone is lying to themselves about the kind of relationships they’re willing to maintain or tolerate. In either case, one can feel the tension of the inconjunct any time the needs of balance in relationship clash with the wishy-washiness of Neptune who might not be too into facing up to the hard decisions. Running and hiding might be a tempting solution, but something here too, is preventing relief.

Pluto at 18 degrees of Capricorn is also inconjunct the Gemini Sun, 18 degrees. Power and authority might be forming a schism to the Gemini desire for novelty and hunger to communicate. Capricorn is Saturn’s home field, and will wait out the impatient younger sign of the Twins. Impulses may have to be stymied in favor of the prevailing status quo.

We come up against hard squares under this full moon with Neptune in Pisces at 14 degrees, square the Sagittarius moon and the Gemini sun. Black Lilith at 12 degrees Sagittarius is also square Neptune in Pisces. With all these aspects forming to Neptune in Pisces, it suggests that hard decisions are coming for those who have been lying to themselves about a difficult situation, perhaps an overindulgence has taken over a person’s life and become a full blown addiction, or maybe a belief that drove actions and decisions in the past is being dissolved — leaving behind feelings of betrayal and anger. The time has come to take a new course and change direction, and it’s a good time to gather information under this Gemini Sun and to better get our bearings.

Semi-squares join the fray. Notably, Venus at 3 degrees of Taurus semi-square Neptune in Pisces. Venus is very happy in the sign she rules, Taurus, so this semi-square will be complicated by issues of wealth, of material needs and security, perhaps more so than anything romantic. Perhaps a promise of increase in wealth, a spoken for reward, something is held up, whether it’s by deliberate deception, or more likely, the neglect of someone else’s poor decisions. Difficulties with no easy solutions may make themselves known, creating a knot of problems with the flow of money or resources, or a project just won’t finish completion and the wheels keep spinning, spinning. Taurus’s endurance is the best thing to have during a difficult time. Be patient, and see your way to the other side of the semi-square.
