Trusting the Inner Wisdom
The Moon is full in the sign of Sagittarius on May 29 2018.
This means the Moon is in opposition to the Sun in Gemini. Both are mutable signs. Mutable signs are willing and able to transmit energy ideas and action with fluidity. It can feel like magic. It can feel like making lemons into lemonade.
The inner guidance, the intuition is the concern of Sagittarius. Gemini likes to gather the glimmering bits bobs and bytes of information.
Sagittarius knows how to synthesis the information. It chews and digests it and internalizes what is True.
With the evolution of human consciousness, we are being called, by our inner wisdom, to become more and more comfortable with the sound of our internal wisdom.
It becomes easier to do the more we give ourselves permission to recognize and follow our own guidance, the inner urging.
The emotional body guides us to what feels right. The mental body in Gemini invites us to gather information. In Sagittarius we synthesize information and, I would say, experiences. Sag is an adventurer, a traveler of both the inner planes and the plains of the world. Sagittarius traditionally rules not only higher education, but religion.
Sagittarius’ ruler, Jupiter, is the great expander. The planet highlights whatever it shines on, especially our journey toward inner Truth.
As we synthesize and root through information gathered in Gemini, we ask our inner s lives, “is it true?”
In the past, religions ( and governments – which sometimes stand in for religion) would TELL us what was true.
We were directed, for the most part to take it as gospel, and were discouraged from running it through our own filter.
There is room for contemplation and interpretation of some doctrine within the confines of some religions.
We are still, many of us, programmed to accept edicts from priest, politician, party, parent, boss, teacher, mentor, spiritual guru, brand that we like, diet, even a peer, actor, sports figure, social media icon that we admire.
I still take on board most of what Jamie Oliver says as my own truth. But I do run his recipes and politics through my own filter and I still think eating octopus is wrong.
In the Aquarian age we are learning to discern what is true for us apart from what a person of spiritual and educational authority says.
Jupiter is currently retrograde in Scorpio. We have an opportunity to examine and shed a big light on transforming what we feel is true for us— in our gut.
Full Moon— how we feel — how we historically and on an ego level have believed — in Sagittarius— how we use our intuition to understand what we believe and, in turn how we teach ourselves and process new information and belief systems. We are reading and watching and finding new pieces of information to fuel our evolution all the time. We may not always be conscious of the sifting but it can be in every choice we make.
It is useful if we have an inner guide that we trust that will enable us to take on board what is useful.
Take what you like and leave the rest.
We are, in Gemini Sun and Sagittarius full Moon resetting our bullshit detectors.
Sagittarius is the king/queen of raining down bullshit from its ivory tower of ultimate truth.
Any one of us can get on our high horse and insist the listener come around to our way of thinking/doing.
The other part of this full Moon and is it’s Jupiter Retrograde time is to know when to listen, to understand, to walk away. The ivory tower is also a great place for meditation and quiet contemplation on the idea that each of us has a higher self and each of us is on a different stage of our evolutionary development. Honoring each one’s journey and process is the wisdom that can come from this Jupiter retrograde in Scorpio.
We still share with friends and acquaintances and our senators and other legislators when it feels right.
And, I will attempt not to ram my “truth” down anyone else’s throat. It is a waste of energy for all concerned and there are much more fun things to be getting on with in this short life.
Gemini is a mutable sign. It’s ruler, Mercury, is currently in Gemini. It moves from piece of info to piece of info, gathering it like seaglass and shells from the beach.
It takes home the pouch of multicolored glass and its polarity to Sagittarius helps to move through what has been gathered, keeping the ones that feel right.
If the gatherer just chucks all of it in a bowl, without examination, some of the shells, with remnants of the odd sea creature, can start to reek.
This can happen when we’ve gathered a lot of information and taken it on board without running it through our own inner Truth. Our mind and heart can get bogged down with outdated ideas, to do lists, rants and practices that seemed like a good idea when we downloaded them to our home screen.
Jupiter shines on truth and lies and all that is in between.
We can develop an inner voice that will say “yep, nope, and needs further examination” to whatever we ask it.
Jupiter is retrograde until July 10. We have a good bit of time to expand our inner perception— the gateway to the Truth.
It can be a fun time. Jupiter likes Fun as much as Truth. Both can be found in the anyplace, the anytime, when we tune in to ourselves.
I’d say, “have fun out there,” but I don’t want to tell you what to do.
Lots of Love, Lydia
