This is something I posted in a group I have on Facebook. I’ll be adding a few more of these for archival purposes. If you are interested in joining the group, PM me and I’ll add you. It’s a secret group, so no one will know you are in it except for other group members. *D.
The full moon is upon us. This one happens to be special for me, as it is my moon (Sagittarius) in Saturn. What that means (if you don’t already know how this stuff works- if you do- I’ll be brief 😉) is that the map of the stars containing the Zodiac “moves” through the sky as we rotate. When the sun or moon are in the sky in relation to when each constellation is visible to us, there we have the sun in Scorpio, or in this case, the moon in Sagittarius. (I’m not really sure where the sun is right now…it’s been raining here for 3 days 😆) When astrologers speak of “planets in your house” or “feeling the mighty influence of…” they are talking about the literal planets and their current position in relation to your constellation. Ok, so for this month, the full moon will actually greet us at 9:10am tomorrow morning, but if you want to see her, you can look to the skies pretty much any time after 9am and, weather and the position of the sun permitting- you can see Her Magesty for the next 3 days 🌕🌞🌕
The moon will not return to Sagittarius for another 30 years. There’s a Tool song called “The Grudge” and he talks about Saturn ascending and coming back around- referring to the lengthy cycle and also to making choices that will greatly affect the long-term. (a note to this in the tarot section below) It has been said that a man that should see three Saturns had three chances to achieve the idea, the greatness and the mastery. 30 years each, 30 years of life and work. 3 chances to slingshot yourself either ON or OFF your trajectory for achievement…It sounds like hanging on to the tail of a comet. I like it. So here comes my first slingshot…let’s see what happens.
Iv’e been asked several times “What kind of magic(k) is best performed during the full moon?” The short answer is asking for things. It’s a good time to set intentions and look at the path of the next month for these few special days, when the moon gives us the light to see even in the dark. Think illumination 💡🔮💡 bringing to light a clear path for the things you want for yourself. Now is a good time to visualize your success, to plan for the coming month and make yourself ready ⚔💎⚔ I’ll include a few things you can do if you’re feeling magical tonight near the end of the post 🔮🌕🔮

🃏 Deck: The Linestrider Tarot 🃏
The tarot is thick with symbolism- The Moon card in particular….Illusion, innocence, intuition, magic, perception, the unconscious, the otherworld/the underworld, skills…to name a few. It can speak to you at the darkest time, and typically does. It is a symbol of the lighted way in the darkness before the dawn. She wants you to know good things are coming- but she is also a warning to be wary of the darkness around and even inside you. From the direction of our subconscious, our conscious acts. The artist for these cards drew a crayfish crawling from a pool to represent our consciousness manifesting from our subconscious pools…keeping your thoughts pure is a worthy task.
The Moon also speaks to artists, spiraling out of control with ideas, expectations and dreams- focus them properly and a breakthrough is yours…you know you’re close already. Relax. You’re already doing everything you can. Keep going.
Here are a few things you can do over the next three magical nights 🌃🌉🌃
💡🕯💡 If you’re indoors, or can’t see the moon because of clouds or urban lighting, see if you can find a space that is dark and (preferably) quiet where you can sit for even a few moments and empty your head of thoughts into the flame of a candle. It can be any color, any shape, any candle that burns will do- just sit with that flame and dump everything you’ve got into it. After you’re done, try to envision everything you would like to happen over the next week actually happening for you. You can go so far as to imagine every trip to work, arriving on time and safely- or getting your paycheck- imagine the Friday beer- anything you want that would be nice. Fill your head with lovely thoughts about your life- even if it only takes a second. You’ll get up feeling better than when you started. I can pretty much guarantee it 🙂 Magic(k) is all about transforming things with your will. (and meditating…SOOOOO MUUUUCH meditating 😅😅😅) Anything you want, you must think first. Think pure thoughts.
🌼🌸🌼 Go get some white carnations and put them on your counter. I found some mini ones at Trader Joe’s for like, 4 bucks 🙂 White carnation is associated with the moon in Sagittarius specifically, so it seems nice to have today 🙂 Sometimes the magic is simply you doing something you wouldn’t have done on another day. Magic(k) is what you make it.
🛁🔮🛁Take a magical bath! Drop yourself come warm water, throw some epsom salt and those carnations in the water!!! Use just a little bit of time to recharge and get your own full glow back on for the month ❤
🍄🍁🍄Take a magical trip. Maybe you live somewhere you can actually procure things like magic mushrooms safely, maybe you live somewhere you can procure weed safely, maybe you live anywhere near a liquor store or a bar, maybe you love to hike with no additives whatsoever- point is- sometimes a magical adventure can please the old gods (Yes, I mean Dionysus) and give you the hedonistic freedom to blow off some steam and clear out the lingering darkness in your energy field/mind- making way for fresh, new ideas and goals.
🔮💎🔮 Give your crystals a moonbath. It’s pretty much exactly what it sounds like- put your crystals in some nice salt water and let the moon charge ’em up!! Be sure not to soak jewelry or anything that can be ruined by the saltwater, but your raw stones are pretty much all ok. Give them a little soak, a rinse and they’re good as new ❤ I like to use just a pinch of black witches’ salt in mine- you can use any kind you like.
