Just a couple of days after the Sun officially ingresses into the curious sign of Gemini, Mother Moon will reach her peak of fullness via the Jupiter-ruled sign of Sagittarius. As you may recall, the full moon in Sagittarius always occurs around the same time, as the sun makes a direct opposition to the moon during this particular lunar phase. That being said, while we anticipate the last few weeks of spring, the full moon in Sagittarius brings with it a sense of hope, wonder, and expansion.


Often referred to as the astrological axis of wisdom, the Gemini-Sagittarius axis brings light to the continuous interplay between the information we gather firsthand (Mercury/Gemini) and the experiences we gain (Jupiter/Sagittarius) as well as the deeper meaning of it all. Before you continue reading, check which astrological houses belong to these two mutable signs in your chart. After all, this is the area of life where new adventures await!


What were you up during the new moon in Sagittarius that took place on Dec. 12, 2023? How have your belief systems and worldviews evolved since? The full moon phase is equivalent to a full-circle moment, so the intentions you set during the new moon in December could be coming to fruition now. More importantly, when considering Sagittarius' archetype, this is a sign that has everything to do with the "bigger picture" and how we've integrated our life-long experiences with our current belief systems.

This is actually the perfect segway for the Sun in Gemini, as it represents everything from our thought process and communication style to the information we're in the process of obtaining at this time. Look at it this way: Where Sagittarius is prone to seeking the truth and philosophy of it all, Gemini is preoccupied with the more tangible aspects of gathering and sharing data. Having said that, take this time to reflect on how you've expanded your horizons (personally or professionally) and how you've integrated these experiences into your day-to-day life.


Adorning the night sky via 2 degrees of Sagittarius on May 23 at exactly 9:53 a.m. ET, it's important to note the Venusian essence surrounding this particular full moon. For instance, with both the Sun in Gemini's ruler (Mercury) and the Moon in Sagittarius' ruler (Jupiter) in the sign of Taurus—let alone Venus also in its home sign via this fixed earth sign—it's safe to say, this lunation is being supported by the abundant and stability-seeking force of Venus-ruled Taurus. On that note, reflect on how your value systems have evolved this past year, as well as your perception of security, whether personally or financially speaking. 


Jupiter (the ruler of this lunation) will sit alongside Venus via 29 degrees of this earth sign, which is deeply nourishing and supportive of our creative processes. Remember, Jupiter magnifies everything it comes in contact with, and Venus in Taurus is abundant and fruitful. That being said, whether it’s an opportunity for growth or new love, one thing’s for sure: something that is both tangible and secure is being presented to us at this time. If I were to compare this energy to a Tarot card, it would combine the Empress, the Ace of Pentacles, and the Ace of Cups. Our cup runneth over. Check which astrological house belongs to Taurus in your chart for more reference. 


During this time, the moon will also make an exact sextile to Pluto retrograde in Aquarius, highlighting newfound insights you’ve recently acquired and perhaps even the dark side of the opinions, friendships, and/or communities surrounding you. Your perception of a goal or vision could also come to light simultaneously, specifically whether or not it’s of value to you anymore. A new belief system could finally become solidified within and around you as Pluto retrograde highlights the progress behind your transformation. If you feel as though you’re in brand-new territory, you’re not imagining it—this is the new reality we’re individually and collectively building towards, but you're ready for it.

An opportunity to embrace new experiences and philosophies awaits you, but when considering Luna's connection with Pluto in your 11th house of community, these experiences could be equally transformative as they are enlightening. A beautiful Jupiter-Venus conjunction lights up your second house, bringing expansion and hope when it comes to your perception of abundance and creativity. Full moon reflection: How have your recent experiences shifted your outlooks and beliefs? How has this contributed to your sense of self?


Prepare for a period of introspection and spiritual evolution, Taurus.

Open your mind and expand your intellectual horizons, Libra. May's full moon in Sagittarius is all the more reason to do so, considering it will activate your third house of communication, thought processes, and immediate surroundings. A conversation regarding your belief systems could circle back around while others of you decide to take a leap of faith. Luna's sextile to Pluto retrograde could also present you with new insight into your approach to love, romance, and self-expression. Jupiter's close proximity to Venus in Taurus could brings opportunities for growth via intimate partnerships and/or investments. Full moon reflection: How has your mindset evolved in the past six months, specifically when considering your love life and self-expression?


You're taking your power back, Scorpio. As the moon peaks in philosophical Sagittarius, there is a greater emphasis on your second house of finances, values, and personal stability. Keep in mind that this all occurs while Jupiter sits with Venus in Taurus in your relationship sector, highlighting everything from your significant others to the value of your commitments. This is incredibly auspicious for beneficial partnerships and long-lasting bonds. Moreover, Luna will form a sextile to Pluto retrograde, bringing awareness to everything that's transpired in the realm of home and family, and how this has influenced your emotional stability. Full moon reflection: How have your relationships contributed to your sense of security? What would further solidify your personal foundation?


Happy full moon, Sagittarius. This one's got your name on it, so before I tell you what's in store, take a moment to count your blessings and reflect on how far you've come these last six months.

Full moon reflection: Are personal revelations resurfacing? How can they be integrated into your life for greater health and harmony?


A rebirth awaits you, Capricorn.

Luna will simultaneously form a sextile to Pluto retrograde, shining a light on what's transformed and regenerated in the realm of your finances, personal stability, and value systems. More importantly, a bountiful Jupiter-Venus conjunction will activate your fifth house of love, passion, and self-expression, fueling the full-circle moment you're experiencing at this time. Whether it be a new artistic venture or a secret rebrand in your business, the possibilities are endless. Full moon reflection: What are you being intuitively guided towards at this time? How can you make more time for your musings?


Make a wish, Aquarius. The full moon in Sagittarius is touching down on your unconventional 11th house of associations, community, and individual freedom, all while Jupiter sits alongside Venus in Taurus, via your fourth house of home, family, and personal foundations. Given the moon's sextile to Pluto retrograde in your sign, it could feel as though the ongoing transformation and purification that's occurred in your personal life are now contributing to the foundation of your goals, dreams, and sense of belonging in the world. But, with Jupiter conjunct Venus in Taurus, blessings in your domestic environment are also more likely to enhance your overall sense of security. Full moon reflection: How have the changes in your personal life influenced your social contributions? What are you comfortable sharing with your community?


Your reputation is under the light of May's full moon, Pisces.

This is especially true when considering the moon's sextile to Pluto retrograde in your 12th house of unconscious patterns, as you are finally purging and releasing inhibitions and fears, specifically those surrounding your sense of belonging in the world. Moreover, with Jupiter conjunct Venus in Taurus via your third house of communication, you are being presented with a newfound perspective and insight that is of tremendous value. Full moon reflection: How have your recent transformations empowered you? Are you confident in your powers of persuasion?
