Rituals for the Sagittarius Full Moon

Sagittarius Full Moon

On Thursday, May 23rd, 2024 with the sun just barely in Gemini, we are graced with the celestial presence of the full Flower Moon in the adventurous, freedom-seeking sign of Sagittarius. Under this cosmic canopy in the Jupiter-ruled fire sign of the archer, we embark on a journey of expansive growth and inner exploration. With the sun and moon both in mutable signs, we may feel our pace quicken and our desire to communicate awaken after a more languid Taurus season.

Sagittarius and Travel

Sagittarius is known as the intrepid wanderer. The full moon here beckons us to traverse the landscapes of our souls, urging us to heed the call of adventure both within and without. We may choose to embark on a trip around the time of this full moon, or we may simply choose to work with our dreamtime to receive insights and experience a sense of expansion as we connect with our sacred inner journeyer.

Jupiter, Venus and Uranus

With Jupiter and Venus closely opposing this moon, themes of love and abundance wrap us in sweetness. In this dance of celestial bodies, we are encouraged to revel in the beauty of connection, to honor the sacred bonds that bind us, and to luxuriate in the splendor of love in its myriad forms. While Uranus adds a touch of spontaneity to the cosmic symphony, Jupiter and Venus ensure that our journey is sweetened with brilliance, grace, and joy.

Rituals and Practices for the Sagittarius Full Moon

The following rituals and practices will help you connect with the exuberant spirit of Sagittarius as the radiance of this full moon illuminates our lives with its wisdom.

1. Bless the Sacred Vessels

Sagittarius rules the thighs, and during the full moon, you might connect more deeply with this part of the body by massaging them with a skin-friendly oil (such as jojoba, olive, or coconut) or simply placing your hands on your thighs with gratitude. Reflect on the beautiful adventures that your legs have supported you through, and how they hold you upright with their strength and grace. If you don’t have physical legs or are missing one, you can simply connect with them energetically through your intention.

2. Take a Sagittarian Journey with the Moon

With its Jupiter rulership, Sagittarius is deeply connected to truth. As the moon's silvery glow bathes the canvas of your inner landscape, embark on a journey of self-discovery. Set your intention to unveil the truths that lie dormant within your soul. Close your eyes and surrender to the lunar guidance, allowing its luminous rays to illuminate the depths of your being. What truths are waiting to be unearthed?

3. Become the Creative Archer

Draw an arrow in your journal and the space just beyond it, write something that you would love to experience. On or around the arrow, connect with your inner masculine, writing actions you can take to move the arrow forward. Connect with your inner feminine by writing down the energies that you can embody and attract that which will assist your arrow in traveling smoothly with precision. Add any colours or symbols that you feel intuitively drawn to support the flowering of your intention, and place it on your altar or a place where you will see it regularly for the next moon cycle.

4. Craft Your Next Chapter

As the protagonist of your sacred odyssey, envision the chapters that await in the story of your destiny. With pen in hand, or brush to canvas, weave a tapestry of dreams and desires that ignite the fires of your soul. What adventures beckon on the horizon? Allow your imagination to soar, unfettered by the constraints of reality, and pen the next chapter of your journey with boundless creativity and unwavering faith. Let the story that emerges from the depths of your heart help you know your true desires.

In the luminescence of the full moon in Sagittarius, let us honor expansion, love, and self-discovery. May our hearts be open, our minds free, and our journeys healing.
