The Earth is My Body, My Body is Wise - Astrology & Horoscopes for the Sagittarius Full Moon - May 29th, 2018
Happy full moon in Sagittarius!
As you know… the full moon is an opposition between the Sun and the Moon, and is, therefore, an activation of polarity. The late, great Esoteric Astrologer Alice Bailey suggested that rather than there being 12 signs in the zodiac, there are actually six polarities. Each polarity, or set of opposing zodiac signs, is a continuum of expression. Two opposing signs will each contain the essence, and the evolutionary need, of the other.
The polarity of this full moon extends between the signs Gemini (where the Sun is currently) and Sagittarius (where the Moon is today.) I think of the Gemini/Sagittarius polarity as the axis of learning. Gemini describes the kind of learning that is circumstantial and unchosen. Gemini rules siblings, early environments, elementary education, neighbors, neighborhoods, and the first language(s) you speak. These are some of the people, places, and things that socialize you, and form the basis of your basic understanding.
Sagittarius on the other hand, rules foreign people, foreign lands, foreign languages, and long distance travel. It is the education, religion, philosophies, teachers, and guides that you seek out. While Gemini is associated to the ways your mind and communicative abilities are formed by your immediate environment and relationships, Sagittarius represents the journeys you must undertake to broaden your horizons, increase your knowledge, and expand your worldview.
In classical astrology, Sagittarius is ruled by the planet Jupiter, and Gemini is ruled by Mercury. You can think of planetary rulers as the emissaries of their signs. Rulers encapsulate a sign’s energy and purpose. When planets transit (travel) through the zodiac and aspect positions in your natal chart, they create sensations and experiences which stimulate the needs of the signs they represent. In this example, Jupiter is a planet that stimulates the need to expand understanding and grow through one’s experiences in whatever sign or house it might be traveling through, while a Mercury transit will bring increased mental activity and communications to those places.
In the Esoteric system, Gemini is ruled by Venus and Sagittarius is ruled by Earth. Through this lens we can understand the higher vibrational frequencies that the planets bring. Gemini, in its classical rulership, suggests the connections we make through our minds (Mercury rules the cognitive function.) But, in its esoteric rulership with Venus, Gemini’s connecting ability is heart-centered and love-based.
Sagittarius ruled by the Earth presents an extremely interesting (to me) idea! Especially since the sign of Sagittarius is where we find the galactic center, Earth rulership suggests that the wisdom we seek is not so far away, but rather, right here… and if you take a moment to remember that your body itself is made of Earth, then we arrive at the basic premise of astrology itself, As Above, So Below.

Wisdom expands around me when I meet my life with creativity. I respond in the moment to what arises with enthusiasm and a sense of possibility. My mind is peaceful and healthy. I am supported in my connections to all that is good and whole.
I give and receive with enthusiasm and optimism. I easily ask for what I need, and just as easily say no to what I don’t need. I have the courage required for actual intimacy. I know that my vulnerabilities are also the source of my healing and gifts to the world.
Who I am, and how I want to be in the world is shifting and evolving constantly. I stay current. I am aligned to my essential nature, and the circumstances of my life easily update to stay current with me.
I devote myself to that which is greater than myself. I am a conduit, a bridge, a channel. I invest my energy to be in service to that which I truly believe in. In my devotion I am rewarded with sustainable satisfaction and deep joy.
I freely experiment with self expression and search for what is most accurate and true in my words, my actions, my being. I commit to radical authenticity and I understand this as a practice of ethics. I know and trust my own intent.
I come home to myself. I clear out the clutter of anyone else’s ideas and makings of me. I am comfortable here. There is no need to leave, ever again. I easily rest in self-acceptance and am assisted by forces unseen to stay present–with love and compassion, for all that I am.
There is no need to perform. There is no need to avoid the issue. There is no need to sugarcoat the words. I am impeccably clear. I am radically honest. I am peacefully sincere. I trust my voice.
My greatest resource is my capacity to listen and to stay present with emotion. The more I build my life around authentic connection and honest relating, the more I will be supported to live the life I choose.
I commit to clarifying my own energy. I radiate purely. The more deeply I surrender to my life, the more attuned I become to myself and my own inner guidance. My relationships reflect my radiance, they teach me about my own essence.
I desire to be my own comfort and provide my own security. In order to do this, I explore relationships with all that is unseen and I strengthen my ability to abide with and trust all that is unknown.
I am surrounded by friends who inspire me to update and innovate myself. The social webs and networks I’m part of support my vision for the future. I communicate with courage and self-confidence and I’m met with enthusiasm.
I imagine and reimagine my life path. I orient myself towards pleasure, enthusiasm, and captivated interest. I trust that the resources I need to sustain myself will be available when I need them.
