Taking Aim and Transmutation;
The Energy of the Moon in Sagittarius and Temperance
The Full Moon in Sagittarius quickly approaches. With the Sun in Gemini – the sign that lies in opposition of Sagittarius. At the time of the full moon we find a balance between the Sun and Moon – as the two opposite signs highlight each other and blend into a powerful energy. This balancing and blending is one of the main lessons of Sagittarius, so it is a particularly strong theme with this Full Moon.
Gemini is the Mutable Air sign – intelligent and calculating, but impossible to pin down. Sagittarius is the Mutable Fire sign – passionate and motivated but easily adapting to new situations. Higher thought and the energy of ideas is transmuted through Sagittarius’ focus and drive, allowing us to take aim for the true goal of our heart.
The Tarot Card related to the Sign of Sagittarius is Temperance. Within the imagery of this card are the themes of balance and blending. Archangel Gabriel stands with one foot on the earth (physical realm) and one foot in the water (Spiritual Realm) while blending the Elixir of Life from two cups. The Sun is rising and flowers blooming, a reminder that “Time Heals All Things” and sometimes time is one of the ingredients we need to blend to work our magic.
The Temperance card is one of Healing – but with a lesson that healing comes with dedication, faith, time, and using exactly the right ingredients – all in moderation. Sagittarius, The Archer, has great focus and drive, but must apply this carefully! One must learn a skill with patience, dedication, the right tools and the right teachers before they are a master. The downfall of Sagittarius is rushing into battle unprepared, but if they can listen to the messages of Temperance – Moderation, Timing, Blending – then their success is assured!
