Full Moon In Sagittarius

Full Moon in Sagittarius

Date: May 23, 2024

While the New Moon in Sagittarius nudges you to get focused and aim at your target (Sagittarius is depicted as an archer), the Full Moon in Sagittarius prompts you to release that bow string if you haven’t already.

It’s time to let that arrow fly. Whether you hit your mark or not isn’t the important thing. The important thing is that you’ve taken action. You’ve taken the first small step.

The fiery sign of Sagittarius is about getting out of your comfort zone and taking a calculated risk. Now is not the time to keep thinking about it, and dreaming, and wishing, and (though it may sound harsh) making excuses.

If nothing else, do one thing during the Sagittarius full moon that frightens you. There is tremendous personal growth and perspective on the other side of fear.

Full Moon In Sagittarius Correspondences

Element: Fire (Sagittarius is a fire sign.)

Season: Late spring, early summer, opposite the New Moon in Sagittarius that occurs in late fall or early winter.

Candle Color: Red, orange.

Crystals/Stones: Satin spar, selenite, and rainbow moonstone are my go-to full moon crystals.

Additionally, consider working with golden topaz, fire agate, fire opal, and carnelian.

The full moon in Sagittarius is a time to check in with your forward momentum – and what is blocking your path.

Other Earth Magickal Items: Stone or obsidian arrowheads, or crystals that come to a point. Pointed wands. Shark teeth.

Full Moon In Sagittarius Rituals

Here are a few rituals that you can do under the Sagittarius Full Moon:

1) Sagittarius Full Moon Tarot

The tarot card associated with Sagittarius is the Temperance (XIV) card.

The Temperance card is about moderation, self-control, blending ideas – all things that are necessary to ensure your aim is true.

During the full moon, however, check in with yourself and see if you might be exercising too much temperance – and is that inhibiting your progress?

What ideas, beliefs, or fears cause you to be overly cautious or timid? How are they keeping you stuck?

For a simple Full Moon in Sagittarius tarot spread, place The Temperance card down in front of you. Then pull two random cards from the deck. Place one to the right of the Temperance card and the other to the left.

The one on the left is what you need to release – what is inhibiting your progress.

The one on the right is what you need receive, and be open to to overcome these obstacles that stand in your way.

2) Sagittarius Shakeup

Under the Full Moon in Sagittarius, try something adventurous and out of your comfort zone. Do something bold that you’ve put off for a long time.

  • Sign up for a class.
  • Bust your routine by driving a different route, or picking something completely different off the menu (skip the “usual”.
  • Read a book (or watch a movie) from a different culture.

My Garden At The Full Moon In Sagittarius

Everything is planted in my garden by the Sagittarius Full Moon, as I am out of “frost danger” by that time.

Asters have a traditional astrological association with this sign, though it will be another couple months before they will bloom in my garden.
