For the week of June 14th thru the 21st, be sure to read your Rising Sign as well:
One interesting side note to Chiron traveling in your sign, is that circumstances may arise to force you to have to take care of yourself, to defend yourself, and stand your ground. Aries is usually pretty good at this, but there is that righteous sort of Aries that prides themselves in taking care of and protecting everyone else, even if that means flaying and working themself to the bone in order to do so. In some way you are being asked to use your voice, let others know, just what your limits are. You don’t need to let everyone know that you are mad as hell, and you’re not going to take it any more, but this is a good week to establish ground rules, where your limitations are being respected and taken into consideration. It may not seem as if you are being heard and/or acknowledged. But your own knowledge and awareness of what is or is not working is key going forward. There could be a bit of commotion this week. Especially close to home or in your personal life. Best to take things one at a time, one day at a time, in order to not get overwhelmed, especially around Wednesday.
Just when you think it’s safe to go back in the water, it could seem as if everything, or perhaps everyone is ready to combust. This requires a great deal of diplomacy and caution when out and about in the world. And it’s not just about the Full Moon that’s coming up. That in itself could be pretty revealing. This is about people reaching their breaking point and being ready to blow. This could manifest in a number of unforeseen ways: road rage; impatient people blowing a gasket while waiting on line; sensitive people taking a comment the wrong way; or people simply not being able to agree. At times like these, it is usually good advice to either give the victory over to others, or back down and simply agree to disagree. The world cannot be changed overnight, and sometimes we have to be satisfied with small achievable victories, that when piled on top of each other ultimately can lead to success.
Those Gemini people born near the last bit of the sign (June 15th thru the 19th) will be particularly sensitive to the upcoming Full Moon. Full Moons can bring emotions to the surface, and even bring out confrontations. Secrets can be revealed. Hidden truths come to the surface. This is especially true with this Full Moon as it is accompanied by some agitating transits that will have quite a number of people on edge. So go cautiously this week, in order to avoid the potential problems these transits can bring, which include things like angry or regretful outbursts or actions. Choose your battles wisely, and make sure that you are considering the greater good of everyone concerned. And also realize that there are times when it is simply impossible to get people to see your point of view. Rather than looking at the differences that divide, focus on those things that you know you can agree on. Seek commonality rather than divisiveness. It may be a challenge, but it could avoid a great deal of angst.
Full Moons are times of the month when things come to a head. There can be a lot of activity, a lot of things to do. And can also be a time of culmination and closure. You can get the feeling that we’ve been leading up to this point in our lives, and now it’s a matter of doing what you need to do, make that decision, tie up those loose ends, and face the inevitable once and for all. North Node is in your sign this year, promoting the things of Cancer as well as Cancer themselves. And with Mercury and Mars straddling the North Node this week, you are being asked to have the courage of your convictions: find your voice; make that decision; and dare to walk boldly into your future. One door may be closing behind you. And that door may just remain closed. But there is another door opening in front of you. And that is where you need to put your attention for now. It may not be perfect, but it’s the best you have right now.
The Full Moon may be showing more than one person where they may have been biting off more than they could chew. So ask yourself, where have I been over-extending myself? Where have I not been respecting my limits? Acknowledging those limits can go a long way to establishing better and healthier ground rules and habits going forward into the future. Pushing yourself beyond your endurance will only give you anxiety and wear you out. And if you dare to do so, make sure that you have a valid reason for doing so. Pace yourself going forward. And instead of repeating those actions which are unsustainable, learn from the past: what positive lessons can you glean? And what are you more than willing to leave behind? You are about to enter a period of retreat and recuperation. But until then there are things to be released and let go. You don’t want to bring that agitation with you, while you are on retreat.
Full Moons are often times of culmination, when things are brought to a head, and we see the consequences of decisions and actions made in the past. It is also a time in which things are brought out into the open, sometimes revealing circumstances that were previously hidden. Hidden because they were either deliberately kept from you, or because you preferred not to see. Sometimes hard truths have to be recognized in order to be able to know what and where your limitations are, and what you might be able to do about them. It is important to know what our limitations are, because they also let us know, not only what we can’t do, but also what we can do. This may mean having to scrap some huge dreams for more achievable goals. That’s okay! Don’t let it disappoint or tick you off. Use this knowledge to motivate and fill you with the determination to courageously tackle whatever challenges and obstacles that you are confronted with. You’ve got this.
At some point the existential awareness that endings and beginnings are actually one, may help to buoy you through whatever changes you may be confronted with this week. It may be that you are facing a lot of resistance and obstacles looking forward, yet nonetheless, you can no longer hold on to what once was. We are all moving through a period of change in which many of the things and people we previously relied on to be there for us, are coming to an end. And so we are asked to look courageously to the future, wherever that leads us. And that may also mean having to make some hard decisions. But it can also feel like some of those decisions are being made for you. Keep an eye out for what is revealed in the light of the Full Moon on Monday. Be as honest with yourself about your limitations as you are with your hopes, and it will be easier to know what you can do, as well as what you can’t. Look for achievable, albeit hard won, victories.
It would probably be wise counsel to acknowledge that there are some situations in which no matter how much you may argue, debate and try to show others the truth, they still will not be able to see things from your point of view. In situations like that it is simply the best idea to agree to disagree, or simply make your statement and let it sit there. Even if it feels like you are being ignored. This is the sort of weather where it becomes evident who is on whichever side, and how difficult it can be to see things from another person’s perspective. So if you find yourself in a difference of opinion with others, seek that ground where there is some sort of commonality of perception… look for ways that you can all agree: some area that benefits everyone, not just one side or the other. This could be challenging this week. But if you are patient, this will probably be the most successful strategy to navigate this potentially edgy and defensive weather this week.
There is a Full Moon in Sagittarius on Monday (or Sunday, depending on where you live). And those Sagittarius that will be most affected by this Moon will be those born near the latter part of the sign, with 22-28º Sagittarius Rising or born between the 16th and 21st of December. Things can come out during a Full Moon: people are emotional where feelings come to the surface; things are revealed that had previously been hidden; and activities abound. There can be an element of fun and celebration too, but with some edgy transits coinciding with this Full Moon, we’re all going to have to be a little on guard, in order to keep tempers and attitudes under control. There can also be an inclination for things to become exaggerated with this Moon, so the best way to navigate that is to keep your feet firmly planted on the ground in order to keep things real. This will be especially true where finances and resources are concerned, keeping your eye on what is realistically and practically achievable.
One thing that may become apparent this week are those things that have outlived their usefulness, and are probably no longer valid for the person you have become. Some things are ending, of necessity. And trying to hold on to something that is no longer a part of your life, will only hold you back, and prevent you from seeing what is right there in front of you. Once again, repeating the reminder from last week, you are the only one who can make the appropriate changes in your life. And if others are being a little too pushy, you have the right to say No, and to set limits and boundaries. You do have to do things in your own way and in your own time, but longing for the closed door will lead nowhere. It is time to recognize that there are doors in front of you, just waiting to be opened. It may take a while to realize this. But once you do, it will give you the catalyst to rebuild what had previously been lost.
It may feel like you are having to work against extraordinary odds to get your life in order. Some of the biggest obstacles standing in your way, are not those that are visible in your outer life; so much as the resistance (and perhaps a little fear) that is going on behind the scenes. Something of necessity is coming to an end, and with it, it could feel as if a whole phase of your life is ending as well. That could be a little scary. But focusing on what is in front of you: what you need to get done; the chores, the work, will keep you focused on what is right in front of you. And that is where you need to be right now. If you are feeling overwhelmed by what appear to be limitless tasks, think in terms of tackling one task at a time, one day at a time. Before you know it, you will have made it to the other side, and accomplished your goals.
All sorts of things can be revealed in the light of a Full Moon. One thing to pay attention to with this Moon is acknowledging where we may have been reaching too high, or expecting way too much. Things can get pretty hectic around a Full Moon and this one is no exception. That feeling of distraction and confusion that drifted through the previous week continues through the weekend. One way to navigate this shifty, foggy weather is to constantly ask yourself: Is this actually true? or Is this right? Another thing that could come out with the Full Moon is where and how you have been led astray. In order to ground yourself more firmly, be clear about what your possibilities are for the future, and whether or not you are being practical about these. In a world where it sometimes feels as if there are no rules, recognizing what your own rules and boundaries are, will be very helpful.
