Full Moon in Sagittarius, 13th June 2014...

... this full moon is on Friday 13th June at 5.11am, UK time.

And what's it all about? well firstly, my perspective is that Friday 13th is just another day astrologically, it's not lucky or unlucky, so don't be put off by that date!
Next, a full moon is always a beautiful symbol of culmination or fulfilment; it indicates contentment and satisfaction relating to a finish line or completion of certain situations.... also it can indicate movement where there is inertia/stuckness, and a turning point where there is the call for new direction. 

Sagittarius is all about direction, and chosen paths, whether these are literal journeys or paths of belief and faith. This moon in Sagittarius is full of faith and promise about the road ahead. The challenge is to keep the faith when it comes to new opportunities and especially when it comes to opportunities to feel and express self confidence and self worth.

The writing below, by the wonderful Anita Moorjani, gets the moon in Sagittarius message across perfectly.... Sagittarius is the sign that enjoys learning and expanding through life experience more than books (although very at home in a classroom as it's about expansion and growth); so who better than Anita Moorjani's words of wisdom to fit the mood of the moon, and to offer authentic quality guidance on how to deal with what life throws us at this time (or any time!)
Happy full moon,
Namaste

"I understood that true joy and happiness could only be found by loving myself, going inward, following my heart, and doing what brought me joy. I discovered that when my life seems directionless and I feel lost (which still happens to me frequently), what it really means is that I’ve lost my sense of self. I’m not connected with who I truly am and what I’ve come here to be. This has tended to happen when I stop listening to my own internal voice and give my power away to external sources, such as TV commercials, newspapers, big drug companies, my peers, cultural and societal beliefs, and the like.
 
Previously when I felt lost, one of the first things I did was to search outside for answers. I looked to books, teachers, and gurus, in the hope that they’d provide me with the ever-elusive solution. That’s exactly what I did when I was first diagnosed with cancer. But I only ended up feeling even more adrift because I was giving my own power away again and again.
 
I FOUND THAT HAVING AN INSIDE-OUT VIEW MEANS being able to fully trust my inner guidance. It’s as though what I feel has an impact on my entire universe. In other words, because I’m at the center of my cosmic web, the Whole is affected by me. So as far as I’m concerned, if I’m happy, the universe is happy. If I love myself, everyone else will love me. If I’m at peace, all of creation is peaceful, and so on.
 
If things seemed challenging, instead of trying to change them physically (which is what I did pre-NDE), I began checking in with my internal world. If I’m stressed, anxious, unhappy, or something similar, I go inward and tend to that first. I sit with myself, walk in nature, or listen to music until I get to a centered place where I feel calm and collected. I noticed that when I do so, my external world also changes, and many of the obstacles just fall away without my actually doing anything.
 
What I mean by being “centered” is experiencing being at the center of my cosmic web, being aware of my position. This is really the only place any of us ever are, and it’s important to feel our centrality at the core of it.
 
But from time to time, I would forget my central place in the cosmos. I got caught up in all the dramas, contradictions, angst, and pain of the physical world and couldn’t see myself as one of the expanded, magnificent, infinite beings we all truly are.
 
Luckily, I realized at those times that we never really become disconnected from the center. Rather, we temporarily lose sight of it and don’t feel the sense of peace and joy that comes from it. We get caught up in the illusion of separation and can’t see that happiness and sadness go hand in hand—like light and dark, yin and yang. Our sense of disconnection is simply part of the illusion of duality that makes it difficult to see oneness forming out of perceived separation. But getting centered means seeing through this and once again feeling our infinite place at the center of it all . . . at the center of oneness.
 
I still had the visceral knowledge that we’re all one with the universe. Therefore, I knew that even while I’m in my physical body, whether I’m aware of it or not, I am at the center of the great cosmic web that is the universe! This is the same as realizing my magnificence and my connection to the Infinite." ~ Anita Moorjani, from Dying To Be Me
