The May 21st Full Moon in Sagittarius (1 degree) is a major hi-light in Mars Rx's journey. It conjoins Mars Rx, which will definitely heat things up.
Since a Full Moon casts a bright light, we can expect issues (that have been brewing since Mars stationed Rx) to be illuminated. There could be an explosion (remember that Mars Rx is intensified energy), a break for freedom, or a major argument. Whatever happens, it will be the result of a long buildup. This Full Moon will have more than the usual amount of punch. Sagittarius issues will be inflamed: exploration, beliefs, truth/lies, faith, ideals, expansion.
However, keep in mind that Mars Rx has not completed his journey. He's on the verge of diving back into Scorpio (ingress on May 27th) so the Full Moon events will only be part of the story. The crusade may come to an abrupt halt, or it may burn more brightly. Lies may be immolated, and as they burn away, the truth will be exposed. Ideals may be incinerated, or illuminated. Events will probably be exaggerated (another Sag theme) but after the big burn, Mars Rx's dive into Scorpio's deep, cold waters will be soothing. And, that dive will expose another layer of truth...one that lies beneath whatever this Full Moon reveals.
This is not a simple process.
The Full Moon opposes Vesta (1 degree Gemini). Vesta will enter Gemini on May 16th, and her devotion will be focused on the exchange of information. Vesta in Gemini is pure intellect: the mind as temple, information as the sacred fire. This purity of thought/communication will be challenged by Mars Rx in Sag, so we have the sacred idea, or the ivory tower of detached intellect, confronted by anger and/or action. Mars is instinct and Sagittarius is intuition, but Gemini is data. A crucial idea or choice may be part of this Full Moon's challenge.
Note that the messenger (Mercury, ruler of Gemini) will station direct on May 22nd, at 14 degrees Taurus. This Moon's explosion will shake something loose, and the result will be progress.
- instinct versus intellect
- freedom of choice/speech
- questioning your choices
- the results of a choice
- discovering the lie/the truth
- choosing a course of action
If you have anything from 0 to 3 degrees of the Mutable signs, you'll feel this Full Moon most intensely.
