Full Moon in Sagittarius – June 13th, 2014: Healing Hearts and Lady Liberty
Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free; the wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed, to me: I lift my lamp beside the golden door. – Emma Lazarus (Quote on the Statue of Liberty, New York.)
Hello friends. Welcome to what promises to be a Full Moon of considerable power and punch. How so, you may ask? Well first of all, it falls on a Friday the 13th which does give it a more mystical, unusual flavor. There are also some significant other aspects riding along with it including a Mars-Pluto square. If you can get past the irritations and dogma that may be coming at you, these lunar energies will prove to be powerfully transformative, that is, for the folks that choose to utilize their highest potential. As I reported on the “Hall of Mirrors” effect regarding the energies of the month of June, this Full Moon will also be significant in our own “hero/ines journey” that is currently at hand.
Vibrational Upgrade Alert: This Full Moon is also riding on the coattails of some of the strongest Solar Flare X and M-Class activity that we’ve had in many months. The Universe is not playin’ as the saying goes. 😉 Be sure to practice the usual good self-care including proper hydration and rest. Also, a healthy dose of patience and compassion for ourselves and others, certainly wouldn’t hurt.
The Sabian Symbol for the Full Moon at 23º Sagittarius is: The torch and spiked crown of the Statue of Liberty.
This is such a clear and powerful image, especially in terms of freedom and arriving on “new lands,” whether they be literal or metaphorical. Lady Liberty being another Mother/Goddess figure welcomes ALL unto her, that would seek freedom and a new way of life.
What does the torch represent? The torch is a symbol of enlightenment. The Statue’s official name represents its most important symbol, “Liberty Enlightening the World.” What does the Statue wear on her head? The Statue of Liberty wears a crown, or diadem. What are the spikes on the crown? Many believe the seven spikes are rays of light representing the seven seas and seven continents of the world. Where on the Statue are the broken chains located and what do the chains mean? The broken chains are near the Statue’s feet and are not visible from the ground level. Many believe the chains represent breaking free from tyranny and servitude. – NPS.GOV
I have recently gotten into another view of symbol degrees by philosopher and mystic John Thomas, who went by the pen name of Charubel. His book “Degrees of the Zodiac” was first published in 1893. Similar to Elsie Wheeler who brought through the Sabian Symbols by virtue of pure intuitive means, his method was similar.
23 Sagittarius: A human heart encircled with a band of iron and pierced by a dagger with jewelled hilt. – Charubel
After I read this, I got a real intuitive hit here, as I was definitely picking up on the heart healing potential of this full moon. Sagittarius moons traditionally are related to expansion, exploration and “big” ideas; the shadow being in dogma, preachiness and in this instance, the potential *absorption* of those things on a personal level. A heart encircled by iron is a vulnerable heart, injured with fear of further or even greater injury. To drop the protective band around it requires a personal “leap of faith,” and TRUST in one’s own true heart wisdom and higher guidance. The guidance that is more of a Universal nature, beyond dogma, but not entirely without a personal philosophy of sorts.
Sagittarius is also interested in the TRUE and REAL, and going beyond appearances to get to the nitty gritty, so to speak. How much further could we go personally and spiritually if we no longer had a fear of injury or failure? What great gifts await us when we drop our internal servitude to tyrannical forces that are no longer working for us? That my friends, are some of the important questions posed by the incoming inquisitive and dynamic Full Moon.
Happy Full Moon friends and remember to keep it Cosmic!
