The Full Moon in Sagittarius taking place on May 26th is not your average full moon! This full moon also marks a lunar eclipse - a highly significant occurrence in astrological and spiritual circles. In terms of spiritual significance, according to Explore Deeply, "Eclipses are harbingers of change — they usher in evolution."
In astrology, the Full Moon is a period of reckoning, manifestation and culmination. You are likely to find yourself on a fast track to resolution or closure when it comes to the people, relationships and situations that haven't been serving any real or beneficial purpose in your life.
With this Full Moon taking place in Sagittarius - the sign that symbolizes discovery and freedom - you will likely receive a major revelation or make a significant discovery that will ultimately lead to your freedom. The energies of this moon will be felt most strongly by those with strong Sagittarius placements and those with strong placements in other mutable signs (like Virgo, Gemini and Pisces).
You can expect that whatever news you receive during this time is meant to cut you loose. It is intended to set you on a path that is better aligned with who you are and your true purpose. Whatever has remained stagnant in your life or that was inevitably going to end will now come to a conclusion.
According to astrologer Chani Nicholas, "Eclipse energy isn't energy you want to bathe in, soak up, or retain. When the light of the sun or moon is obscured it's not 'good'. It's revealing. Eclipses reveal our personal and collective shadow, all that we hide from, ignore, and brush under the rug."
Here are 10 ways to navigate the shocking and powerful energy of the Full Moon In Sagittarius:
- Sweat out your toxins at a sauna.
- Smudge yourself and your space with sage or palo santo.
- Work with Selenite crystals.
- Rid yourself of people, places and situations that no longer serve you.
- Pour out your emotions in your journal or to a trusted friend
Bonus: Take a salt bath - not with an eye to manifesting anything, but to take a moment to cleanse your aura and to heal from the powerful and shocking energy that the Full Moon in Sagittarius will inevitably bring.
The primary theme of the Full Moon In Sagittarius is that of sudden revelations leading you to your true path. This is a period of acceptance, of grounding, of cleansing and of letting go of things, people, things and situations that are no longer relevant in your life.
Make the most out of this energy now so that you can enter your next cycle healed, refreshed and empowered.
