On her journey through the skies, the Moon spends between 1-4 days at a time in a single zodiac sign
Each of these signs carries a different flavour, texture, and area of power.
As la Luna spins her way through the the mandala poised above our heads, she influences a different piece of our human make-up.
Influenced by the sign she’s moving through, la Luna tugs at our feelings, our sensitivities and instinctive reactions to the world around us. She powers up our intuition, forming a pathway through the veils of knowing and understanding.
The Moon can show us who people “really” are: Who their instinctive, emotional selves are, behind the ego mask.
Ancient cultures all across the Globe have always honoured lunar Goddesses
As our twin luminary in the sky, she has held as much importance as the Sun. From Artemis to Diana, Cerridwen to Khons, Chang Zi to Soma… Goddesses of the Moon and their stories are steeped in magic, mystery and power. Your presence here tells me you too, are enamoured by something about her… yet what that something IS can be difficult to place.
Yet this ancient deity of the sky isn’t all about etherial, unconscious mystery. She encourages embodiment, and connection to the physical relams of experience. Her cycles through phases and zodiac signs often make the subtle landscape of our physical bodies rise and fall, feel soothed or inflamed. How much you feel this depends on your own chart and any pysical challanges you may be moving through.
Some peoples are highly attuned to the la Luna’s celestial shifts, while some rarely feel them at all (and this can vary from month to month, season to season, year to year). But as a collective, the current Moon sign has a strong, but subtle influence on the energetic climate of our days. A collective horoscope of sorts.
So, if you feel her calling, it’s wise to keep track of her astrology. Just a little. This will help you navigate her waters SO much more smoothly…
What does the Moon in Sagittarius feel like?
Who doesn’t LOVE a Sagittarius Moon?!
This is an expansive, and free-spirited lunar transit. Sagittarius is a sign ruled by Jupiter, the giant of the skies. This planet expands what it touches, sprinkling it with luck and positivity.
Under this Moon, the world feels like home.
Which of course, it is… but it’s somehow more exciting, more intriguing and more open to adventure. Horizons are stretched and anything feels possible.
This Moon always makes me think of Artemis
Ancient Greek Moon Goddess of forests and the wilderness, she was adventurous, brave and fiercely independent. Born as the first twin – her brother Apollo followed her from the womb – she begged her father Zeus to allow her never to marry. So great was her yearning for freedom. He agreed, and Artemis lived out her life as a huntress, her bow aimed with an exactitude that was unmatched.
Like Artemis in the wilds of her forest, this Moon gives us an emotionally secure place to be.
Risks exist, yes. But under a Sagittarius Moon they don’t feel like risks… in fact, this lunar transit can kick up a yearning for exploration and all the wildly unfamiliar things you’d normally turn away from… with the courage and poise of Artemis herself.
The risks creep in if you ignore this Moons energy.
Too little adventure and not enough variety may lead to impulsive action and that old friend: self sabotage. Too little freedom under this Moon, and we all want to escape!
SO before you get to this point, let yourself break out of routine.
Get dinner in a new restaurant
Plan a weekend away
Scour the internet for last minute summer getaway deals…
Give yourself new things to do, new things to look forward to, and a genuine change of scenery.
A Sagittarius Moon can activate your inner philosopher
So if geographical travel isn’t on the cards, intellectual travel comes a very close second under this Moon. The quest for wisdom is strong, and you may feel your sense of open-minded wonder expand.
Above all, Sagittarius seeks the truth
So whether you’re asking Grandmother Google, making a visit to the library, or musing with a mentor, this Moon is an invitation to answers the BIG questions…
Symbolised by the centaur – this mythical figure who’s half man, half horse – Sagittarius can bring a dualistic energy to the table. Not wholly one thing. And not wholly another… there can be a sense of being torn, undecided, or two things simultaneously under this lunar energy.
The truth seeker and the fool.
The teacher and the student
The mystic and the ordinary Jo (or Josephine!)
This zodiac sign has a mutable quality (alongside signs Gemini, Virgo, and Pisces) which makes it fexible and undaunted by change. Expect to be okay with switching up plans… and expect others to be accommodating too. YET on the other hand, this astrology is notorious for its inability to commit. Draw the line.
The Moon in Sagittarius Body
Some folks find they are physically affected by the Moon’s transit through Sagittarius.
This astrological sign rules the hips, thighs and legs. Any issues you have in this part of the body may seem to flare up under this Moon. Take care. Anything extra you can do to support yourself will be of double benefit, so bare this in mind if you have stiff hips, varicose veins or even achy shins…
Otherwise, go for a walk!
Embody Artemis and get out somewhere wild. You may find that by running and walking under this transit, the ideas flow SO much better than if you were sitting stationary at a desk all day.
