FULL MOON IN Sagittarius

May 21, 2016

Planet: Jupiter // Sign: Sagittarius // Element: Fire

The stars of Sagittarius are illuminating the Full Moon, asking us to fuel our heart's highest endeavors. As this sign is ruled by the element of fire, it is lighting a flame in the sky asking us to take action! The Sagittarius is a playful spirit seeker, always on the search for the next visionary exploration. Naturally full of life and always speaking the truth, this Half-Man, Half-Horse is a symbol for aiming beyond your dreams. The man represents determination and strength and the horse depicts a force field full of courage and power. The arrow shooting towards the sky symbolizes the journey which always lies ahead.

Sagittarius energy brings us broad knowledge, rooted in deep heart philosophy, and reveals an innate way of understanding the world.

This sign is ruled by the planet Jupiter -- the largest planet in our solar system, having more mass than all other planets combined. This is the planet of aspirations and guiding visions. Feel into this time and follow your heart wherever it wishes to take you. Explore, go on an adventure, or journey to a place that brings up sweet memories. Seek out new lands, meet new people from other walks of life, do things that fuel your creative fire!

Use this time as a reminder of the essence that makes you who you are -- your passions, your aspirations, your deepest heart desires... and let them burn as bright as the sun!

11 SACRED STEPS

a guided meditation

1. Lay down.

Lay down on your back and separate your feet about 6 inches and let your feet fall open like a book. Find Savasana, a completely still pose of restoration.

2. Open your palms to the sky.

Roll your inner arms away from your ribs and relax your fingers so that your hands soften.

3. Broaden your heart-space.

Shimmy your shoulder blades down your back to lengthen your neck and widen your collar bone, making more room in the chest for breath to travel freely.

4. Relax your legs.

Bring your awareness to the part of your legs that connects deep within your hip socket. From there, relax the legs so that your feet fall open more and your knees release.

5. Breathe into your back body.

Notice the ribcage as it expands and contracts across the floor beneath you. Receive the breath as if it were a blanket of gravity, relaxing your body deeper into the cradle of the earth.

6. Aim your gaze above you.

Set a Drishti - a focal point serving as a reminder to remain present in this process.

7. See yourself ascend.

Imagine the breath becomes so full and rhythmic that it begins to defy gravity. Allow the energy of your breath to pull you closer towards your Drishti.

8. Let the eyelids become heavy.

With consistent focus on one point, your Drishti, the physical eyes may begin to close and in turn, awaken your intuitive center - the 3rd eye. See your intention for this Full Moon from the inside out.

9. Shoot for the Moon.

All that you intend is within you, seeking to find fruition in the universe. Send your intention through the gateway of your breath, like a shooting arrow headed for the Moon.

10. Travel through the stars.

Surrender to the weightlessness amongst the stars and enjoy the ride, wherever it may lead you. On this journey, observe every moment as a miracle, woven together by the stars.

11. Float with your dreams.

Let your heart be your guide and your third eye be your compass on the journey to your dreams. Be patient and willing to receive guidance from this process. When you are ready, reawaken your physical body anyway that feels right. Rock to the right side of your body and gently help ourself up to a seat with your left hand. Take a couple of breaths, ground yourself, and open your eyes.

'PICTURE YOUR DREAMS'

a Full Moon Ritual

This Full Moon, we will harness the power of Sagittarius to help us visualize our aspirations as achievable goals, while staying rooted in consistent action. This month, the moon and the stars are here to remind us that nothing good comes easy, nothing meaningful can grow without constant care, and nothing fulfilling can exist without genuine intention. The energy of this time is all about focusing our attention on how our actions play out -- AKA our karmas.

In order to truly live the life of our dreams, we have to be mindful where, why, and how we aim our intentions. Think of yourself as an archer - just like the half-horse, half-man Sagittarius. You have a quiver full of arrows, with a bow ready to shoot them into the world, and the rules of karma are three-fold...

1. Your THOUGHTS: All that you you think or contemplate is represented by the quiver of arrows you have at your disposal. These arrows have not been shot, and their direction is not fixed. Every arrow is influenced by the deep, subconscious impressions of previous actions and fixed karmas, but not bound to it. Anything could happen.

2. Your INTENTIONS: All that you intend is represented in the individual arrow that you put in your bow. These arrows are impressions that come to the forefront of your life due to environment or life circumstances. Think of these arrows as the karma of the present moment. Their direction is dependent on the intention with which they are shot.

3. Your ACTIONS: All completed actions in your life are represented by arrows that have already been shot into the world. They have a solid trajectory, and their destination will not change. Consequences of these arrows - good or bad, are inevitable.

The intention of our aim, coupled with our ability to learn from our completed actions, leads to the consequences of our future karma - the unshot arrows.

For this month’s ritual, we have provided you with a picture frame with twine, 3 clothespins, and 3 blank cards (one for each layer of karma: thoughts, intentions, and actions) to map out the direction of your deepest desires, whether completed, currently on course, or soon to be.

Take the three blank cards and contemplate for a moment… Ask yourself: What have you accomplished in your life that inspires you? What are you doing RIGHT NOW to contribute positively to your life? What can you do in the future to help you be more forthright in your actions, and therefore more positively reaping in your karmas?

Keep it simple. Journal before you write on the cards if you need to think it through, but try to go with your instincts. Typically the first thought that came up is the right thought. Chose 1-3 words that match each meaning (thoughts, intentions, and actions) as best as you can, write it on the respective cards, and pin them back to your picture frame. Feel free to add anything else you wish to this visionary picture frame... Quotes, pictures, drawings, talismans, momentos, etc… anything that connects you to the thoughts, intentions, and positive actions you wish to magnify in your life.

You hold all the tools you need to manifest a life full of meaning, pleasure, adventure, and fulfillment. Set your sights on that goal, and let all that you have done up until now support you with every breath you take. Stay rooted in the present, supported by the past, and inspired by the future. Remember, you are a dazzling ray of light, like a shooting star coursing across the sky, aiming for the light of the moon. Hold this always in your heart, and you will never lose sight of your aim!
