Full Moon in Sagittarius June 14 2022 – Forecasts for Each Zodiac Sign

William Blake, Satan Watching the Endearments of Adam and Eve from Paradise Lost IV, 1808. Blake was a Sagittarius born November 28 1757. His writings were dedicated to the study of life’s mysteries.

“Of good and evil much they argued then,

Of happiness and final misery,

Passion and apathy, and glory and shame,

Vain wisdom all, and false philosophy!”

John Milton, Paradise Lost, 1667, bk.2

Every month the increased light of the Full Moon offers us an opportunity to clearly see the terrain we are walking, the conditions affecting our decisions, and the potential that we have available to carry us forward to achieving our goals.  This month’s Full Moon in Sagittarius is exact on June 14 at 23º52′ , 12:51 GMT/7:51 EDT, and it brings great idealism and inspiration, making us want to think and do only the best, and see the good in everything.  There is so much energy urging us to throw our backs into manifesting our dreams, and we are wide open to innovation, as anything new compels us forward with ever-grander plans.  However, this month’s Sun/Moon opposition is also locked into a T-Square with Neptune, bringing with it a disarming, hazy sense that tomorrow doesn’t matter, that today is here to be enjoyed, and that the trials and tribulations of life will take care of themselves if only we have faith and do our best.  We may feel a pinch, however, as we reach for our pleasures.  With Saturn squaring the Venus/Uranus/North Node conjunction, tiresome matters of practicality will keep cropping up, but consider that a protective energy which keeps us from tipping over the edge into total delusion.  Castles in the air may be beautiful, but we need to make sure we build real foundations strong enough to bear the tests of time. Saturn provides us with the energy we need to see things through long term, however onerous his lessons may be – use that boring energy to get stuff done. (Sorry, no fun!)

One of the strongest energies of this Full Moon lies with the tight Mars/Chiron conjunction in Aries.  This conjunction speaks of a sense of wounding that lies in how we exert our aggression. We feel compelled to charge forward, engage in combat and win, but even when we win, we feel bad about it.  A sense of guilt or shame sullies our victory, and try as we might with more combat and conquest, we cannot shake the feeling that somehow what we are doing is wrong.  This is an important consideration at this time as we see escalating violence on every continent of the globe.  Anger and frustration have compelled diving into the unthinkable, and the biggest trouble is that the rage feels so justified – just look at all the shootings that are occurring in the United States, the ongoing Russo/Ukraine War, and the continuing global aggression perpetrated in the name of “right” or “justice”.  Whose rights?  Whose justice?   What is gained in shooting people down, bombing cities, raping and killing?  Who is gaining from this violence and why? A good time to think about personal perspectives on aggression, weapons and war. The more positive energy we put into moving away from the world’s reliance on violence, the better it can be for everyone. 

“What if someone gave a war & Nobody came?

Life would ring the bells of Ecstasy and Forever be Itself again.”

Allen Ginsberg, Graffiti, 1972. Ginsberg was a Gemini, born 3 June 1926

Okay, enough heavy stuff. On the most fundamental level, this Full Moon will allow us a feel-good respite, and we can bask for a few days in an exuberant, optimistic view of the world.  Just remember to think twice if you didn’t quite catch the drift of what someone said, if something seems just a little too good, or captivating, or delicious…you get the idea. We have great potential now to think things through deeply, and collect facts that will be very useful in our long-range planning process, so don’t be afraid to step back a moment before you dive in to your next grand scheme. 

May this Full Moon inspire you, may it be spiritually stimulating, richly exciting, and light the way as you work to manifest your highest ambitions and deepest understanding.   Thank you for reading.

Forecasts for Each Sign of the Zodiac

Aries: This Full Moon, the spotlight is on your highest ideals, Aries.  You want to talk about it all with those closest to you, but your emotional life might feel a bit fuzzy, and no matter how much you put yourself out there, you feel like you aren’t being understood. Keep talking – people aren’t used to this side of you yet, that’s all.  Inspiration is high, it’s just a bit difficult to translate at the moment as you consider how your go-getter persona needs some fine tuning, as well as a healthy dose of self-acceptance.  New avenues for money and surprise expenditures could pop up.  Older friends can offer insights and help stabilize your fluctuations – pay attention to what they say.

Taurus:  This Full Moon, the spotlight is on your hidden underbelly, and you feel inspired by what’s hidden, mysterious and taboo – the more intense, the more exciting. It’s just a matter of discerning who, what, when and how right now.  We know why – because it’s thrilling, of course!  Career feels serious as you take steps to embody what you value most in your day to day life. How you come across to others still comes as a surprise, but in a pleasing manner; roll with it as you work through any jabs that rise from your subconscious mind.  Healing change is happening.  Stand out of your own way and let it be.

Gemini:  The spotlight is on your relationships this month, Gemini, as you have the opportunity to be as objective as possible about how others influence your sense of self, and how your relationships play into your career moves.  You have a wide variety of social influences, though how you keep that scene active may cause you some consternation.  Be open to lessons and learning, particularly coming from those older and wiser than you – a bit of old fashioned wisdom might give you the answer you’ve been looking for. Be open to new dreams – who says you can’t change them up every now and then?

Cancer:  This Full Moon points a spotlight on health, habits, your daily grind and how these reflect things you may be hiding from yourself.  Consider the interplay between your daily routine and your dreams, and think about how you accomplish self-undoing by laying traps for yourself.  What keeps tripping you up, what weakness beckons time and again?  Career feels full and energized, and you are able to conceptualize how previously irresolvable issues can be worked around.  New friends, social groups and desires feel exciting, while bottom line reminders of who owes what keeps you from overdoing it.  Stay inspired and don’t be afraid to talk it out.

Leo: The spotlight this Full Moon is on pleasure, creativity, romance, fun, and how your social scene impacts what you feel about all the good things in life.  Compelling issues of taboo, mystery, pain and sexuality run like an underground river below your understanding of joy right now Leo, leaving you mystified as you look for a sense of solidity in established relationships. Career inspires and can present lucky surprises, bonuses or winnings this month.  Philosophically, you feel the need to charge ahead, but too much aggression doesn’t feel right.  Take your time and let the larger picture carry you forward; you don’t have to figure it all out at once.  Remember, it’s the journey that counts most.

Virgo:  Your personal life/career spectrum is highlighted this Full Moon, Virgo. Relationship and ideas of partnership inspire, but can cause confusion as boundaries and expectations of those closest to you are undefined.  Work and health require responsible attention, and can feel onerous if you swim against the tide – do what you know is right, even if it’s a drag. Look for surprises in big picture ideas, discoveries, breakthroughs and even sudden plans for travel or taking a new course. Creativity can deliver profound insights and unlock ideas in career.  Let old wounds on your tender underbelly be; stop scratching that itch – it’s better to accept that it’s just always going to be itchy.

Libra:  Your immediate environment, who you communicate with on a daily basis, and how you go about your daily business is in the spotlight.  Long-distance travel, new ideas, and how these impact your fundamental beliefs about yourself are inspired by work and day-to-day habits; be careful of workaholic or escapist tendencies right now, they might cloud your communications skills. Borrowing money should be favorable now, or a surprise gift might be coming your way, in the most pleasant package. Creativity feels stolid at the moment, but use the foundation you’ve built to bolster your self-image.

Scorpio:  Issues of money, self-worth, what you value, who you owe and who you fund are in the spotlight this Full Moon. Creativity and where you find pleasure can feel deeply escapist or wildly inspiring, it depends on how you choose to exert your will, especially in your home base and with those closest to you. You are open to intense communication; let it flow and empower what you have to say with those closest to home. Work and domestic routine feels healthy and powerful, except somehow it’s just not cutting it, as your usual M.O. feels somehow compromised. Work with it, it will pass. Surprises in partnerships can prove beneficial in the long run and add to your overall future development. 

Sagittarius:  This Full Moon will feel very intense, as it is all about your persona and how you put yourself out into the world, Sagittarius. You are able to communicate your feelings with gravity – people will take what you say seriously now, if only you can let out what needs saying. Consider how your closest relationships impact what you put across to the world, and how your values are changing.  Old issues of what you consider home, inheritance, and ancestry could cloud your motivations, but can provide inspiration, even revelation if you can let your creativity flow. Surprises on the work front could prove beneficial and open up better pathways for the future.

Capricorn:  The spotlight is on your dreams, your subconscious motivation, and how your propensity for self-sabotage comes through your daily habits, especially in health and work matters.  Inspiration calls you to communicate even though what you have to say seems unfocused or blurry at times.  Serious values, responsibility and stability bolster your self-understanding, and your persona comes across with gravity, even a bit fearsome, but let it ride; that seriousness gives a strong foundation to your ability to discern the wheat from the chaff.  Open up to innovations in how you express joy and creativity and don’t be afraid to rejuvenate your ideas of pleasure.

Aquarius:  The spotlight is on your social scene, Aquarius, and how who you associate with impacts how your creativity is expressed.  Values feel inspired, though pinning down exactly what it is you want could remain elusive at this time.  Look to how people perceive you for that is growing increasingly stable and can serve as a linchpin for your endeavors.  Open to deepest concentration this Full Moon – meditation will offer up bountiful rewards.  Also take the time to dive into studying your dreams, fantasies and imagery.  Examine any compulsions or knee-jerk reactions that pop up – draw, write, dance or sculpt around the topic, you may be surprised at how what arises reflects your oldest notions of Self.

Pisces:  Your public persona is highlighted this Full Moon, Pisces, and whether you want to or not, you have an opportunity to share your emotions with those around you.  Watch how your public persona impacts experiences of home life, ancestry, your oldest memories and behavioral inheritances.  Family matters occupy your thoughts, particularly old issues you thought were laid to rest, and you may feel confused about what this means about your self-image, which feels like a work in progress.  Your values feel solid, and you are in a spending mood, but throwing your money around doesn’t seem quite as fulfilling as you thought it would.  Surprising communication from your immediate circle, perhaps an invitation for a day trip provides the opportunity for a change of scenery.

Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio – The Flower Moon May 16, 2022

Odilon Redon, White Vase with Flowers, pastel on paper, France, 1916.

May’s Full Moon, also known as the Flower Moon, is a total Lunar Eclipse and is exact at 25º18’ Scorpio on Monday May 16, at 4:15 UT (May 15 00:15 EDT). The term “Flower Moon” perfectly describes this time, as the energies closely reflect those experienced by a flower opening to life after a long winter’s struggle. Watch a garden in the springtime, and you will see that Nature is ever determined to provide budding plants with the challenges they require to grow into their strongest version. This Lunar Eclipse presents us with a time of considerable potency, offering just the right amount of difficulty and inspiration we need to move forward into our best future.

Lunar eclipses are watersheds; decisions have to be made, something must be left behind, and our destination remapped. In the case of a budding flower, the state of dormancy must be left behind, and the urge for life apprehended. For us, it is similar; eclipses present us with new ideas and directions of growth, often through irrefutably important events, thoughts or interactions. What had once seemed like vague possibility becomes a point of central focus, particularly if it benefits our evolution. Things which seemed so important in the past shift out of focus, moving into the background to support the new vision which pulls us ahead into the future. And so, we evolve.

This Full Moon Eclipse is marked by a tight T-square with has Saturn at its apex. Saturn stands at a crossroads, looking left to the deeply emotional Scorpio Moon, and right to the Sun/Uranus/Mercury Retrograde conjunction in Taurus.  This is a time of heavy consideration, and the Moon in Scorpio wouldn’t have it any other way. What we value most on an emotional level, where we find security, meaning and connection is now highlighted by the undeniable urge for forward motion and growth. We cannot suppress the life force, and the Full Moon allows us to see clearly what must be shed and what must be allowed to come to life. 

Mars and Neptune are conjoined in Pisces, diffusing energy so that rather than clearly seeing what is happening, we need to intuit, reaching with senses little used.  This aspect can be very inspiring, giving us the energy to work at manifesting our dreams, but it can also be very delusory, fogging real action and perception with untruth.  Faith in the growth process is required, and a bit of caution not to get lost in the fog.

Venus conjoins Chiron in Aries, which creates a second-guessing effect for the normally demanding Venus in Aries experience.  Venus seeks to please herself, she wants beauty, adoration, peace and pleasure. As natal ruler of Taurus, currently locked in conjunction with Chiron, we find an undertone of doubt in what where we find pleasure. Something must change in what we find enjoyable, collectively, for there is a woundedness associated with what we seek.  Every time we reach for something we want, there’s a pinch involved.  While certainly an uncomfortable aspect, it allows us to collectively find a sense of true empathy as we go about chasing our desires. What we value as a society is changing – our urges for consumerism, glamor, and over-consumption are clearly no longer working out, for the economy or the planet. The “me-first” urge of Venus in Aries is being given a pause as we find other, more equitable ways of seeking pleasure and enjoyment, particularly in light of the mass suffering the world is currently experiencing.

Pluto in Capricorn stands high above it all, looking down with an unrelenting desire to see everything turned upside down.  The changes that are currently being wrought are fundamental, deep and permanent. Pluto lends support to the Retrograde Mercury, indicating just how deeply we need to dig in order to ensure that costly, time-wasting errors are not made, but this aspect also gives us a wonderful opportunity to thoroughly review old work, plans and ideas for potential breakpoints and pitfalls. Mercury Retrograde in Gemini is a tough placement, as Gemini rules our communication, our thought processes, daily interactions, business, contracts, writing – all the things we rely upon to get our point across and gather the information we need on a daily basis.  Communication is challenged during this Full Moon, but that may not be a bad thing, as the overall energy right requires us to slow down, consider, be open to inspiration and evaluate what lies ahead as clearly and thoroughly as possible. Saturn dominating the day adds a sobriety and discipline that is required, ensuring that we will take our time with this eclipse.  Envision where it is you want to be three months, six months, one year from now, and use the energy now available to put your vision into motion.

An interesting observation – the Uranus/Sun conjunction in Taurus is yielding surprises every day, it seems.  A remarkable news article surfaced just this week, discussing how scientists have discovered a black hole at the Galactic Centre, in Sagittarius.  This will certainly set theorists on the path of wild speculation for years to come, but it is these sorts of discoveries and innovations which occur during heavy Uranus transits, and in Taurus, the manifestation in concrete reality is even more evident.

Full Moon Forecast for Each Sign of the Zodiac

Aries:  Your persona comes across loud and clear, and you are in the midst of healing what it is about yourself that causes you the most grief, Aries.  You are all about the money now, finding new ways to diversify your assets, and opening to things you had never dreamed would be important to you.  However, this Eclipse is shining light on the fact that you need to contend with how you feel about significant others in your life – particularly any friends who may be causing challenges to your overall MO.  Be careful not to escape into overindulgence as you try to escape the pressure of reality, it’s not worth it in the long run.  Listen to your dreams, and watch for Freudian slips as communication can prove challenging.  Say what you mean, say it again, and one more time for good measure, otherwise misinterpretations will be hard to unravel later on, which would be a waste of time – anathema to any self-respecting Aries.

Taurus:  Taurus, it’s pretty hard to ignore you folks these days.  You are coming into your own, and for all those who thought they had you pegged – HA.  This Eclipse, the spotlight is on how those closest to you affect who you want to be, and how you want to be perceived.  You may have a bit of trouble communicating your values right now, but don’t feel rushed. Take your time to work out the nitty-gritty.  Career plans get serious as long-term details crop up, and you need to sort through what’s best for your overall development.  Old beliefs need revamping, but don’t necessarily look to your circle of friends for answers – that bunch may seem a bit foggy right now, so take what you hear and see with a grain of salt.  Deep healing of old, gnarly wounds is highlighted right now.  Take time with yourself – meditation, ritual, prayer and grounding will be especially fruitful right now. Embrace yourself – all of it – even the bits you wish you could forget.

Gemini:  This Eclipse may feel a bit confusing for you, Gemini, as you seek to solidify your self-concept. Just who are you, anyway?   There is much subconscious material springing up at you, causing some compulsive reactions that you need to sort out later.  This is a good time to take a look at any habits that might be better left by the wayside, and tightening up routines and daily tasks will be highly beneficial.  You may feel burdened by old beliefs that you can’t seem to shake, but rather than railing against them, meditate on what holds you back. Take your time and look at this stuff.  It’s all about how you deal with power issues, what’s fair and what’s not.  Friends inspire, and you can make peace with circumstances that once seemed inaccessible.  You may just find that previously closed doors are suddenly open – it’s up to you whether you step into that new reality or not.

Cancer:  This Eclipse is a great opportunity to start seeing some positive progress on things you feel like you’ve been working on forever.  The tide is just about to shift, as you find new opportunities opening up for you in social settings, and in manifesting your dreams and wishes.  Power issues, particularly with significant others, will feel tough, but a little discipline and a hard line is sometimes just right to define much-needed boundaries.  Let your creativity come to life this Full Moon, Cancer, and open to the inspiration you feel welling up – what you create now will serve as fuel for your fire as you continue through the months ahead.  Subconscious material can crop up, and it’s a good time to review old, long-standing problems that seem to have been evading practical solution.  Mediation, journaling and therapeutic talk can be very productive now in allowing you to finally unearth those nasty old stones that have been weighing you down.

Leo:  This Eclipse, the spotlight is on your home, Leo, and how you balance home life with career.  Everyone needs a solid, secure home base, though things are emerging in your public life which require integration.  Relationships feel serious, as the lay of the land is evident to all involved.  You know what you are dealing with; either commit or quit.  The depths feel particularly heady these days, as issues of sex, death, power and control slip through your consciousness.  You are in an intense learning phase, and your horizons are broadening, allowing you to finally embrace new ideas, visions and beliefs.  It feels good to know that you are on the right track – and you are!  Don’t be afraid to revamp your approach with daily work habits, getting rid of what holds you back, and stepping up to better ways.

Virgo: The spotlight is on your daily communications, Virgo, and how your belief systems are being revamped and manifested in your day-to-day life. It’s a good time to start a new job, a new course of study, or enroll in a program that can help you with your career, or personal development. It is time to revamp how you think and talk about things – especially yourself. Are you stuck in repetitive, negative thought processes? Look to your creativity for ways to break free – deep things are welling up inside, let them out, and let yourself communicate freely. Be sure that you are meticulous in career matters – especially contracts, as things may go backwards for a while. Work habits and methods are due for a stringent overhaul. Clean out and rearrange what’s a mess in your immediate environment, and make space for something new and more beneficial to arrive.

Libra: What do you value, Libra? That’s the question you need to ask yourself this Eclipse. What is important to you? How do you define your sense of self-worth? Surprises come from power-plays, as intertwined values press upon what it is that compels you to feel good about yourself. Issues in the home, ancestral memory and the father rise up for you to evaluate. The impact of these matters runs deep, and now is a good time to see how such things influence your belief system. Communicating may feel difficult, but sometimes you need to let ideas breathe before sharing them with the world – now is one of those times. Don’t be afraid to re-evaluate what you think you believe. Creativity feels serious – you want to manifest, but it’s hard work. Habits may be somewhat undermining; you think what you do on a regular basis is inspiring, but it may actually be diffusing your energy. Relationships feel sweet, as you have power available to heal old wounds.

Scorpio:  The spotlight is on your persona, Scorpio, as it seems that how you feel is what you are.  If you were ever going to wear your heart on your sleeve, right about now would be the perfect time – this Eclipse is highlighting just how you feel about your closest relationships, how they impact your daily habits, your creativity and your home life.  Power plays are gnarly, and you want to talk them through, but now’s not really the time.  Meditate on the details, and let these things rise to the surface before sharing your thoughts, otherwise you run the risk of misunderstandings and complications which will need to be sorted out later, if at all.  This is all about how you communicate.  You want to get deep, but start with yourself before unleashing on those around you.  Work habits feel good, health is fine, and creativity is inspired, if a bit nebulous at this time.  Solidify your home base, even if it feels hard.  What you do there within the next few months will result in a holding pattern that will last at least until the end of the year, if not become a permanent state of affairs.

Sagittarius:  This eclipse is allowing you to really get into your subconscious mind, Sagittarius.  You have the capacity to drill deep into what makes you tick, and you will be able to see just how things you hadn’t quite grasped about yourself surface in your health, work and daily habits.  Compulsive behavior can undermine your best abilities – now’s the time to focus on that stuff, even if it comes as a surprise, perhaps an outburst or announcement from a work colleague, employer or employee. Your values are being reshaped, and you want to communicate, but that feels hard, especially in relationships and partnerships.  Hold those thoughts for at least a month, because what you think is important right now probably won’t be later– if you can remember the details at all.  Look out for inconsistencies in matters dealing with home life, and beware of overspending, even if that splurge seems like a great idea now.  Let yourself feel creative, your pleasure principle is at a high level, so enjoy what feels good, and let the guilt go.

Capricorn:  The spotlight is on your society this Eclipse, as you seek to break through to new forms of creativity and pleasure.  What may have suited in the past no longer serves, Capricorn, and you know deep down that it’s time to move on and unleash all that you have pent up inside.  Work issues are tricky, and your daily habits need some reconsideration, especially things that tend to obfuscate what you should really be doing.  Don’t waste precious time, and don’t bother talking about it – just make the changes you know you need to make.  Your persona is in the midst of a total overhaul, and you can’t see the forest for the trees right now as you seek to define your values, but keep doing what you are doing.  You are motivated by what is serious, and results that matter for the long-haul.  Home life supports your efforts, and feels full and sweet at this time.  Enjoy and dig deep into your foundations, for they support you all the way.

Aquarius:  The spotlight is on your career, Aquarius, and this Eclipse offers you the opportunity to do what it takes to manifest your ideals in what you do on a daily basis.  Creativity seems a little confusing right now, as you seek to root out the details which have been eluding your grasp. Don’t bother discussing, just let everything that seems like a good idea now float to the surface – you will sort out the important stuff later, once it all becomes clear – but be sure to document everything, lest that genius idea slips away.  You want to communicate, get out and be busy in your community, and this is a perfect time to do so.  You will likely find yourself very involved with short-distance travel, errands, weekend vacations and shopping, visiting friends and relatives.  Your persona may come across as rather serious at times, but don’t worry – you are manifesting your true self.  Stick to your guns!

Pisces:  This Eclipse is focused on your most deeply held beliefs, Pisces, and you may receive some surprises from your friends, relatives and daily contacts that shake things up for you.  If you have been wanting to travel, now’s a good time to put a big trip into motion.  It’s also a good time to go back to school, take some personal development courses, learn a new language or meet people from places you have never been.  Think consciousness-expanding, and you’ll get the picture.  Finances are in order, and you are happy with making a splurge right now, particularly for something big-ticket.  Home life needs a bit of communication, but the details of what’s necessary are hazy right now.  Be very clear with any plans you put together that involve home, family and health care, as you will need to repeat instructions, processes and procedures if you don’t take extra care to double check and ensure things are in order at this time.  Your long-term dreams are changing, and as such, your persona feels a bit hazy right now, but no worries, it’s a good time to enjoy yourself Pisces.
