“Alchemy is concerned with transforming soul life in such a way that one gradually comes to perceive the world not as a collection of objects but as a living, metamorphosing, creating activity.” Robert Sardello
The Moon waxes full at 22 degrees of Sagittarius Friday June 13. The Sagittarius/Gemini axis concerns the balance between the conscious mind – which gathers and analyzes information – and the higher mind -which unites duality through a philosophical or spiritual system. Pythagoras – who was trained in ancient Mystery Schools – was the inventor of what we now call the Pythagorean Theorem. In his teachings about the metaphysical meaning behind numbers he stressed “Always remember the one” – the unity which underlies duality.
At the time of the Full Moon Venus opposes Saturn – making it a good time to think about how we bring our values to life in thoughts, words and actions.
Issues of self worth or self esteem can arise during this time as well as feelings of scarcity. One of the Sabian symbols for this Full Moon is, “A woman airing an old bag through a window to give it light and sunshine.” It is best to focus on progress and future endeavors and to seek innovative solutions rather than resorting to old programming of the past.
Mars is forming a T-Square by opposing Uranus and squaring Pluto. These forces can contribute to the likelihood of increased volatility and impulsiveness and with Mercury retrograde it is best to avoid rushing, provide extra time when traveling, be extra clear with communications and double check if snafus arise rather than jumping to conclusions.
One of the other Sabian symbols for this Full Moon is, “Brightly clad nature spirits dancing in the warm dying light,” reminding us of the invisible mystery and magic of life which always surrounds us.
