On May 29th, we will experience a dynamic and healing full moon in Sagittarius. Full moons are a time of illumination when we are asked to deal with what is in front of us and not run for cover any longer. In astrology, it’s a time when we will be faced with the truth and be inspired to start off on a new path and leave the past behind once and for all.
What does this mean for your love horoscope? Well, of all the zodiac signs, Sagittarius is known for being one of the deeper personalities, joining Pisces and Scorpio in the realm of the unimaginable and theoretical. It’s a zodiac sign that is attracted to emotional depths and mental stimulation almost as much as freedom itself.
During the course of this year, we have been asked to undergo a series of small changes that ultimately are here to help us transform ourselves and our lives.
Because this year is an "11" year in numerology, we have also seen a focus on deep, soulful connections for those who are in those relationships. In these types of unions, the coming together is an alchemical process that requires us shedding many layers of the self before we are ready to join with another.
While we are all on different journeys, many of us have been drawn into these deep and powerful connections in recent years not just as a catalyst for an overhaul in our personal relationships but as a tool for our awakening process. Yet a big part of this process isn’t just realizing that we need to make a change, or even implementing what needs to be done — it’s healing everything that came before so we’re truly beginning a new life phase.
Sagittarius likes to go deep; he likes to explore all that is hidden from the world, to discuss the spherical and lyrical, to travel both physically and metaphorically all in an effort to make life one grand adventure. There’s nothing that is off-limits topic-wise, there’s nothing that is too far out there for him to understand, and because of that it’s the perfect place to look at all of our shadows so we can bring healing to the deepest of wounds.
One important aspect that will be heavily influencing this full moon in Sagittarius is the Grand Water Trine that will occur shortly after. Part of this trine as well is Jupiter trine Neptune, which occurs just a few days before this particular moon. It’s literally sandwiched between two important intuitive water aspects. Water runs deep, water heals, water baptizes and makes new, water changes not by force but by determination; water soothes and sustains life.
This moon is going to ask you to dig deep in the pursuit of freedom, to look at what is separating the life you’re living from the one that you want to live. It’s going to ask where we still need to grow and what wounds we need to heal in order to do so.
What is interesting is that sometimes the aspect of healing just comes down to us letting go of a particular narrative. Once we’re ready to heal, no longer is it something that was done to us but rather, something that we experienced that is firmly and safely in our past.
In terms of love and relationships, we can’t actually fully move forward until we’ve let ourselves heal from our pasts. What this means is that we have to synthesize the dreams for the future, the lessons of our present, while also saying goodbye to whatever or whomever is no longer serving us.
It’s a moon that’s going to be providing some much needed closure and cleansing on issues that likely have plagued us for some time, as long as we’re willing to let ourselves move forward.
Change can be scary and new beginnings can be intimidating, but we can’t stay in one place forever. We have to move or be dragged in many ways, and the time has come to turn a corner this year. We have one month left before the lessons of the last eclipse cycle will be apparent, one last month before we’re able to take the lessons of the last six months and actually make advances to move forward into our futures.
Now is the time to dive into our healing, to forgive ourselves for not knowing better, and for everything that it took us to experience in order to be where we are in this moment. To understand that is to release the guilt, to release the idea that we could have done better or differently, and to fully accept and appreciate that anything we did was all for the necessary good of becoming the person we are today; the one who is ready to move into love, into newness, into our futures.
Sometimes it seems that certain situations will never change, that we will be stuck in them forever, unfilled or at least confused. In these moments we often place the blame on others, that because of them we were unable to make changes or do what we felt called to.
But realizing that we all hold the power of our own destiny is like realizing that no one is holding us in place. We are free to move. We are free to change, to forgive, to speak up and to do all of the things that we never thought possible.
Love isn’t complicated, but people are, especially when we don’t follow our hearts, or when we make things more difficult by overthinking or building expectations so high not even a super hero could accomplish them. Yet the trick is that really isn’t about what we have to do but rather, what we let go of.
Because sometimes we just have to let it all go in order to see what is meant to return or, at the very least, stay. We just have to be ready to truly heal.
