We believe that all things, seen and unseen, throughout the Divine Universe are connected and intertwined. When energies within that collection merge, the union increases the flow of energy and generates something bigger and new. “Out of the collision of chaos comes creation” is generally the concept or phrase heard most during these kinds of astrological events.
The Full Moon and Thirteen
Thirteen. The number of transition and change. The Witch’s Number. The number of a Perfect Coven and Black Cats. The full moon is set to fall on Friday the 13th, a rare occurrence that won’t happen again for 35 years (until Aug. 13, 2049).
The last time a full moon coincided with Friday the 13th was October 13, 2000.The odds of a year having a Friday the 13th full moon are just 5.81 percent. That means it happens, on average, every 20 years.
The number ’13′ is often referred to as the number of transition and change. People in general are resistant to change and reluctant to take on change when times are going well. But change in inevitable and constantly moves us forward, often whither we want it to or not. The only constant in the Universe, is change. Thirteen is associated with letting go of the negative patterns we hold in our lives.
This is how people will be feeling when this Full Moon in Sagittarius hits us on Friday June 13. It is not the “bad luck” Friday of superstition. This lunation is about breaking out wildly in a jovial, joyful, optimistic, fiery burst of activity and mindset.
Gracefully, this full moon is named the strawberry moon, or rather a rose moon. Contradiction it is. The native folklore called this the Rose moon because it is time to harvest strawberries and blesses its harvest through its glory by the sun and the rain. Not to mention that it creates a most beautiful hue.
This full moon is a sacred time for Native American women as they use it as a time to send up prayers for everyone and cleanse their spiritual selves.
Full Moon in Sagittarius
This is energy where people say what they want to say and do what they want to do, especially if it facilitates them having a good time in mind, body or spirit. Sagittarius energy does not want to restrained and will get raunchy and wild, inappropriate and uninhibited without too much thought. If thought is given, it is about the potentials and possibilities of the good things that can come, even when you do not know the outcome. It is all an adventure in living!
One reason people have a party is to say “Bon voyage” when people leave on a journey. This going away party is taking place symbolically for many as the old is left behind and the future is celebrated. The unknown future in new territory.
For some, I will tell you, this is a sign of the end of something. I know of a few Sun in Gemini people who will see the doors close with finality, on something they have tried to hold onto for too long or someone whose freedom they have been preventing and should have released long ago. This could spark some fiery Sagittarian anger, but in the end, all will work out for the best for those affected, once everyone has their freedom.
With such beauty mercury is also allowing many of us to slow down and feel the warmth and the beauty of nature and be one with ourselves within this universe. Meditation, being at peace with yourself, and slowing us down may be a way of the universe saying to us “be blessed with all that is around you and breathe deep”. Because nature is absolutely magnificent and it is all around us, enjoy this peaceful pause. Read more about it here.
This is a perfect time to clean out your life. Many people believe that whenever there is a Mercury Retrograde that you should not do anything and wait till it passes. Well, in the real world that just doesn’t work. Life goes on! So let’s remember the gifts that this period brings and trust that this is a good time of reflection and revising your journey in life. In the grand flow of life, these inward moving energies are conducive for fine tuning and helping to bring greater clarity, awareness, and focus.
