The Full Moon is in Sagittarius ♐ @ 25° Monday June 17th @ 1:31am PT
This Monday we’ll experience a profound and meaningful Full Moon in Sagittarius. The planetary ruler of Sagittarius is Jupiter – thus the energy of Jupiter will be at the forefront of our experiences this week.
Jupiter is the planet of abundance, luck, wealth, and blessings, spiritual beliefs and in classical astrology, it represents a woman’s spouse.
The Full Moon also coincides closely with Fathers Day (June 16th) in the western world (and in 26 countries around the world) on the 17th of June.
This is powerful and auspicious timing considering Sagittarius is the natural sign of the 9th House – the house of the father.
Symbolically, the planet Jupiter itself represents the father archetype. In Roman mythology, the God Jupiter was also known as the ‘shining father’ (aka Zeus in Greek mythology).
Themes related to father will be at the forefront of our minds and hearts right now!
The theme of father can be related to your biological father, yes, but it goes much deeper.
There’s the Divine Father in the cosmic sense, there’s your own internal father within, and father energy in the world (sometimes it shows up in who we choose as a partner).
We all have the Divine Mother and Father energies within us and around us. We call the earth ‘mother earth’ and the sky ‘father sky’.
These energies impact us on a conscious and unconscious level.
We often inherit our deep belief systems from our dad, or from the government (father energy) the church, our religion…
This Full Moon will ask us to take a look at our internal belief systems and decide what needs to be let go of.
It asks us to look at our own relationship and beliefs related to ‘father’ and release those which no longer feel good.
This Sagittarius Full Moon asks, what beliefs are no longer serving you?
I recommend you write out beliefs you want to let go of on paper and burn them, please keep water nearby for safety. Fire is a great way to release especially when the Full Moon is in a fire sign!
Jupiter is also the planet of adventure and blessings so you may feel the pull this week to take a trip, or you may be gifted with a blessing. It could be a literal blessing or a spiritual insight that appears out of nowhere. Enjoy the positive energy.
Please read your Rising Sign below (followed by your Moon and Sun).

Now is the time to go within and ponder what beliefs about YOU to let go of. Use the powerful energy of this moon to release and purge.
CAPRICORN – Capricorn, as a somewhat shy and feminine sign you don’t mind being behind the scenes and supporting others from that place. This Full Moon is taking place in your 12th house which can highlight this tendency or a belief that you can’t be the centre of attention or take up space in the world. The 12th house is a secret and private house. Have you taken on beliefs around how public you allow yourself to be? Now’s the time to ask what you need to release around your private vs public self.
AQUARIUS – Aquarians are known for their off the cuff rebellious and quirky nature, because of this it’s rare to meet an Aqua who doesn’t have a large social network. This Full Moon your beliefs about both your public portrayal of yourself and your friendships and wider social network will come into your awareness. What beliefs do you carry about your friendships both positive and negative? How do you show up in your network or community at large? What beliefs have you taken on about how you need to show up in order to be accepted? All of these themes will be at the forefront of your consciousness this week.
PISCES – Career is at the top of your mind this week lovely Pisceans! It’s time to take a deeper look at your beliefs around career (or self-employment) and ask yourself what beliefs you’ve taken on about these themes. Do you believe one is better than the other? Are you hesitant to work for yourself or for others? Is it time for a career switch? These beliefs are holding you back from making the changes you need to make to be happy in this area. It’s time to dive in and ask what beliefs can you let go of related to your career.
WHAT is a FULL MOON?
A Full Moon occurs when the sun and moon are opposite each other. This creates a sense of tension. It’s when the sun shines the most light on the moon. The Sun is our conscious and the Moon is the unconscious. It’s an ideal time to LET GO and to bring the dark into the light to be released.
Every Full Moon is a chance to a look back at the intentions you planted two weeks ago during the New Moon. What were they? How have they manifested? Are you taking action toward them? Now is the time to reassess and release anything standing in the way of your hearts desires. The two weeks between the New and Full Moon is a great time for new beginnings. The two weeks after the Full Moon is time to let go.
When we plant our New Moon intentions, we can’t just plant the seeds and wait for them to grow. We need to fertilize the soul, water them, make sure they get plenty of sunlight – most importantly we need to weed and pluck out that which doesn’t serve us. The Full Moon helps us ‘pluck’ out the weeds.
When the moon is full, a light shines on the areas of our lives it’s time to release and let go.
