On Friday, June 9th, the Full Honey Micro Moon in Sagittarius arrives in my time zone (your mileage may vary – be sure to check for your local time HERE). Unlike May’s Super New Moon, this time around we have a Micromoon. Since the term is relatively new to witchy circles, there’s not much information on its effects casting wise – from what I was able to piece together however, it seems the energy becomes more focused (especially if you have Sagittarius in your chart), rather than weaker.
This moon is also the “Lowest Moon” which, according to The Old Farmer’s Almanac, means “even when it reaches its highest-up point of the night, at around 1 AM, it’s still not even one-third of the way up the sky, except as seen from southern states. Being low means its light is passing through more than twice as much air as when it’s high overhead like winter full moons. And, especially if the air is humid, as it often is this month, this makes the Moon look not white, but amber-colored.”
Once again, I turned to the interwebz to see what this means for us astrologically. Here’s a snippet from an article over at Forever Conscious by Tanaaz, called “Intuitive Astrology: June Full Moon 2017” –
The June Full Moon falls on the 9th in the fire sign of Sagittarius, bringing intensity, transformation and optimism.
Sagittarius energy is wise and expansive. Whenever the Full Moon is in Sagittarius it amplifies our thoughts and feelings and brings more information to the surface.
It’s almost like this Full Moon is going to give us a magnifying glass so we can see in greater detail what is working and not working in our lives.
After this Full Moon, there is going to be a lot more clarity about what changes or adjustments need to be made and consequently there will be a peace that will follow.
The June Full Moon has an intense energy due to the presence of the planet Saturn, which is also currently touring the sign of Sagittarius.
Saturn is like the stern teacher of the cosmos and is always ensuring that we have done our homework and understood the karmic lessons that we have been sent to learn.
The Moon and Saturn will be working together to deliver any karmic messages and healing that we need in order to walk our highest path.
There is a transition or a shift that we all need to make in 2017 in order to align with our highest path and these two cosmic forces will be helping us all to achieve this.
2017 is a year of new beginnings and as we reach the midway point of the year, things are going to be speeding up to help us get started on this new chapter of our lives.
I updated the graphic for a simple ritual I created for an earlier post, and thought I’d include it here as well.
Last, but not least, here’s the graphic I created for the occasion, using a picture I took of the full moon in June 2016. Bright Full Honey Micro Moon in Sagittarius to all!
