A supermoon in Sagittarius is orbiting close to earth tomorrow, and it is powerful. Anytime we have a supermoon, we may experience an amplification of its energy - both physically and emotionally.
With the moon in the fire sign Sagittarius, we are with the potent energy of the Wise Woman archetype. She who holds the wisdom, and dives deeper into nature's intelligence, her own shadow, and that of society around her, for the purpose of healing and wisdom. And with wisdom, comes the en-light-enment. A full moon illuminates and shines light onto that which is needing attention or healing.
This Moon in Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter, the planet of freedom, justice, and proof. Bringing extra attention to the shadows, especially around these themes, as well as learning and exploration. This Moon is also deeply connected to the asteroid Lilith, the dark, uncompromising, wild, feminine who speaks up and does not heed any form of authority that attempts to control her. This energy is very much accompanied by Inanna (also known in other lineages as Ishtar), the Sumerian Goddess of love, sexuality, justice, and war. She is the Goddess that descends to the underworld. We will dive more deeply into this mythos in the Litha/Summer Solstice blog.
Lilith and Inanna, are both very strong, wild, unapologetic, and arguably even chaotic Goddesses. Their mythos both revolves around rejection and descent. Lilith was thrown out of the Garden of Eden for not obeying Adam, while Innana descended into the underworld - where she was unwelcomed and killed - in order to be present for the funeral rites of her sister, Ereshkigal’s, husband.
Both, however, show that for big change to happen the Sagittarius traits of taking risks, journeying to another land, and adventure must be prioritized. While we may see big changes around us over the coming months, allow the curiosity of this Sagittarius moon to look at those changes as first steps in the next great chapter of your journey.
