“We must let go of the life we have planned, so as to accept the one that is waiting for us. ” -Joseph Campbell
O man O man, I don’t know if it’s the huge bowl of assorted liquors that I just drank, or this full moon is going to be fucking great. Here I am, sputtering this away as best I can while my vision is fading, but what other way could someone write about Saggo full moon than plastered drunk at 3 in the morning (especially after pulling the 9 of Cups)? Right as we are about to shed into Sun in Cancer, a surprising second moon in Sagittarius is going to be supplying the fire for our transformation. This is a very special full moon indeed (as if we weren’t having a fuck ton of weird and special astronomical events happening this past year already). Halfway through this full moon, Luna will be switching from Sagittarius to Capricorn. This makes it a duel ruled full moon. This is a clear metaphor for metamorphosis. It is brimming with electricity and excitement and lots of “push” energy. This is a clear indicator that you need to just fucking jump into it and do it. The self made person doesn’t manifest their existence by observing the universe but by acting and actively seeking their destiny. What is it that the Christians always say? God only helps those who help themselves. Yeah, I would say there is some truth to that. It’s time to make that critical move. But hey, be playful about it. Maybe drink an entire bowl of assorted liquors like I did, or hell, I dunno, run screaming into the hoard singing because we’ve fucking got this good good energy!
Sun (5 of Cups), Moon (9 of Cups/Ace of Pentacles), Venus (4 of Wands): DRUNKENESS! AND IT’S NOT JUST ME! I pulled the 9 of Cups into the Ace of Pentacles for the full moon in Saggo/Capricorn, so it looks like there will be a lot of joy and insight brought by Luna. With Venus in sensitive Cancer when this lunation takes place, there will be an opportunity for ecstatic states of vision and happiness available to us if we can move past the fact that nothing will ever be absolutely how we imagine it to be. If we can realize that no situation can be perfect, nor will it ever be perfect, we can actually make due and ENJOY what we have. I know it’s hard to realize that dreams don’t always manifest the way that we want them to. We spend countless hours daydreaming about what our perfected actions could sprout into our world, but it takes a special kind of courage to realize when something is not right for your path. It also takes a special kind of person to look up from the mess around them to see what is still standing. We can imagine ourselves happy in millions of scenarios in our head, but we must also realize that what we are imagining is limited in scope. Life is full of disappointments left and right, and finding out that something we fantasized so deeply about is going to crumble in our hands is a hard fucking thing to swallow. The thing is, if we take the energy of this full moon and just let the fuck go, we will be gifted with eyes to see the REAL opportunities. The expectations that we build will ruin us. The things we demand will enslave us. Saggo is all about the vision. It never actually comes from him, but from the summation of everything around him. This is why it is a vision. One must be able to drop their own ego in order to receive what is truly the best course for them. Sometimes we don’t realize what we actually wanted – what was actually good for us – until we take that leap of faith. Sagittarius craves an ecstatic state, and from this ecstatic state of vision, he moves his plan into the hands of Capricorn. This full moon is all about the realization of destiny, and knowing that we must look up from the spilled milk to see it cross our path. Sometimes broken things may be a vehicle for our destiny, but how high we climb the ladder our particular culture hands to us at birth has nothing to do with the real myth inside of us. Saggo coming into Capricorn tells us that our work must be fueled by vision separate from the ego. If we do not feel a fire from our work, then it is dead work. Plain and simple. Only through the fire shall find true fortune. We must match our rhythm with that of the world around us. Only then will we find the flow and stop fighting our eternal transformations. You must LET GO in order to change. We must allow ourselves, and the ghosts of dreams rattling in ours ears, to die before we may be fully renewed by the fires of this full moon. Open your eyes to the people around you. From the Gemini new moon onward, we are getting a push to alchemically meld with those in our tribe. It is time for us to come out of the inner cavern of the past few months and celebrate and explore with others. I am getting good signs in regards to love and friendship from this reading. That is… as long as we can look up from our egos and recognize that no vision is the the one vision. We must juxtapose, and in order to do that, we must relate with openness. So, in short, what this full moon is telling me is to let mutable Saggo melt your old expectations so that your real abilities may start to shape a more stable, realistic, far more adaptive future for you and those in your tribe. As Mark Twain said, “You can’t depend on your eyes when your imagination is out of focus.”
Mercury (Page of Swords), Saturn (5 of Pentacles), Neptune (5 of Swords): Well, this is an interesting combination. The great thing about the 5 of Pentacles in Saturn is that it tells me that we will be forced to experience vision even if everything needs to be torn away from us for this to happen. Don’t let it get that far. Do you hear that voice deep inside of you that has been tugging you a certain direction your entire life? Yeah, follow that bliss. If you don’t follow that bliss, you will be met with challenge after challenge until you are so broken down, so impoverished that you are forced to look. From rock bottom, you can’t avoid seeing everything. Again, don’t let it get there. Jump and leap now, follow your vision but please heed another warning; do not trample on others to do so. Again I am getting a message that we must remain extremely open to other’s opinions right now. No-one is an island, so sail the seas that connect us and bring a greater vision to yourself and others. Don’t get so trapped in your own ego that Saturn needs to pwn the fuck out of you for you to finally see everyone you have been hurting with your viciousness. When we are scared of the fragility of our vision, we attack.
Mars (10 of Pentacles), Uranus (King of Cups), Chiron (The Fool): Well daaaamn, the cards are letting me in on a little secret here. You know all that bullshit you have been battling inside of you? Uranus is not going to let is sit on that. It’s time to let it explode and do something with it. With The Fool as Chiron, our ability to transform this deep hurt inside of us into something new and helpful will be at it’s prime during this lunation. Uranus is not going to sit there quietly while we bottle things up some more, noooope. And Mars is going to help him dig out all of the gunk once and for all (until the next cycle, that is). This is good. Unless there is some fucked up shit that you are working on that may disturb your reputation, but in the end, it needs to come out for your own sanity. Be prepared for exposure, but be aware that this is a great opportunity to use your past hurt to heal others setting out on similar paths Again, this is a very tribal moon.
Jupiter (Ace of Swords), Pluto (King of Wands): Well isn’t this lovely! Jupiter is like Excalibur right now! He is leading the way, pointing us to the exact place we need to go. This is truly a visionary moon. Get your thinking caps on, because now is the best time to implement what has been resting in your head. Luck and fortune are here for us, and whatever we ask for will manifest very quickly. With Pluto being the King of Wands, you can’t do anything but thrive in your vision. The god of the Underworld is demanding that we use our power to change things, and Jupiter is telling us that we are heading toward that change with a jovial heart and BLISS in mind. Again, follow your bliss. This seems to be the clearest message of all. There is bliss in destruction just as there is bliss in creation, and Pluto teaches us that we must destroy in order to create. So what are you willing to let burn away once and for all so that you can march forth without shackles toward your vision? You can’t fly with the world sitting on your shoulders.
