This full Moon in Sagittarius has a powerful connection to generosity.   The Moon and Jupiter are close, close enough to bring the joyful generosity of Jupiter, and especially Jupiter in the sign of Sagittarius, into our consciousness.  Jupiter is the planetary ruler of Sagittarius.  His large spirit of creativity and optimism fill us with a kind of divine happiness.

It’s a season of generosity as we approach the Solstice and the light of the Sun stays with us into the night, and Tuesday we have a full Moon to continue that joyous radiance into the darkness….

But why is Jupiter associated with generosity, with expansiveness, with laughter? He is a god of lightning, yet he is not associated with fearfulness, but rather with courageous hope, fertility and growth.  Here he is in eagle form, fertilizing the pomegranate trees.

Jupiter at this moment is in a perfect square with Neptune.  Together they rule the constellation Pisces.  Neptune is king of the oceans where the fishes (Pisces) live.   Both Pisces and Sagittarius are  associated with spirituality in many forms, with priests, with compassion.  Sagittarius especially has an all embracing enthusiasm for strangers and foreign  religious traditions, but it is also the sign of the fanatic.  And here is where the dark side of Sagittarius emerges.  There is a kind of twist which can take place so that instead of accepting and enjoying difference, Sagittarius may turn into the witch hunter, the inquisitor.

This might have something to do with the sign of the Sun.   When the Moon is full in Sagittarius she is opposite the Sun in Gemini,  the mental aspect of the Zodiac. The airy thought process of Gemini can become become tangled and tormented, and what appears generous and friendly, one moment becomes dangerous or intolerant the next.   The expansiveness of Sagittarius morphs into greed and hoarding.   Everything is tangled and choaked in too much fertility.

The moment for this full Moon on Tuesday is full of twists and turns, surprise and revelation.  All the planets are in aspect to one another. A Pluto-Saturn South Node combination is facing off against Mercury, Mars and the North Node, and Neptune is in contact with Pluto-Saturn and Jupiter as well as Mars and Mercury.  Eris (Lady Chaos) is there as well with relationship to Sun and Moon, and Pluto and Mercury and Mars… This is a moment to understand that nothing is black or white, but to contemplate every color in the rainbow.

This very mental and very spiritual   woman was  born with her Sun in Gemini and  Moon in Sagittarius!
