Full Moon in Sagittarius: Rocket Ship Launch

Full Moon in Sagittarius: Rocket Ship Launch

Full Moon

The moon is full in bombastic and wild Sagittarius, Monday, June 17 (3:30 am, CDT). Celebrations ensue for Midsummer on June 21 (10:54 am, CDT)! The longest day of the year gives the most hours of daylight to explore the world and discover the fruits of summertime!

It’s the essence of letting the animals out of their cages to roam free and lighting the rocket ship to watch it launch full blast! Travel, whether through a book or on a train, fills the soul up with wisdom and new perspectives. Seeking adventures and exploring provide outlets for maximum energies that peak during Midsummer. Dreams and schemes that have been gestating during 2019 are born. The risk-taking gambler comes out to play and make it big. Celebrations and libations may be aplenty, though keep aware of imbibing too much!


Strengths of Sagittarius are honesty and bluntness, which can shock the sensibilities at times.  Use sensitivity when communicating, as words can flare up and be extra cutting. Anger, moodiness and irritability intensify with Mars in Cancer. The sign of Cancer rules family, mothers, home, roots, and nourishment; these areas of life are stirred. How can we blow off steam to release some of the pressure and promote a sense of well-being? Fighting instincts may be sparked by personal, cultural and political strife. The boxing gloves are on, but the punches are indirect.  What are strategic and protective ways of responding to turmoil?

Summer Solstice launches into eclipse season with a solar eclipse in Cancer July 2 and a lunar eclipse in Capricorn July 16. More to follow!

To enjoy the fruits of summer and celebrate, add some of the Eye of Horus’ Van Van Spray or Van Van Oil to your daily routine.

New Moon in Gemini: Chasing Chickens

This new moon in Gemini, a chick hatches out of its shell and starts to peep (June 3, 5:01 am CDT)! Gemini, a sign that embodies duality, tends toward multiplicity. One chick hatches and soon follows another and another. Before too long, a brood of chicks is running around. The chasing of chickens begins!

Gemini is known for cleverness and communication. While connecting with others and sharing ideas, inspiration may be found in the world of the arts. A work-worshipping paradigm begs for balance as the new moon suggests finding wealth in songs, books, music, poetry, theatre — any form of creative expression.
