The Full Moon in Sagittarius is called the “Monk’s Moon” and happens on May 29, 2018 at 7:19 AM PST/10:19 AM EST. The Sun and Moon go opposite and flow into their deepest harmonic. This is one of Lunar Ladies’ favorite Full Moons because we are blessed to have our own resident Tibetan Buddhist Lama Monk to bless us! Receive the Lama’s blessings during the Full Moon Power Puja Prayer Circle this month (see below)! Mercury ruler of the Gemini Sun’s energy is at 29 degrees Taurus giving you a karmic celebration/release gift from Taurus for your New Moon intentions! Are you ready to release and receive?
Monk’s Moon: Higher Mind of the Centaur
The Full Moon in Sagittarius expands your faith and opens up your Higher Mind to seek the truth of everything! Sagittarius holds the container for the world’s religions but the archetype of Sagittarius is the Centaur. This ancient symbol dives deeper into your internal Universe of being both a body and a Soul. Your natural, instinctive drives align with your physical body’s intelligence. Your thirst to expand your Mind in search for the abstract knowledge of the Universe drives your Soul towards ecstasy! Since this is more a masculine frequency for the Full Moon, the Sun holds more of the truth you are searching for this week! [Hint: see more 411 below.]
Mercury and a Water Trine:
Mercury at 29 degrees Taurus is the “Peacock Parading on the Terrace of an Old Castle”. Mercury brings you your inherited gifts from Mother Earth Gaia. The beautiful Peacock and all his royal feathers is the bird dedicated to Venus (ruler of Taurus). Mercury whispers to tune into the biological and spiritual gifts of your ancestors during the Full Moon. A massive shift in your “wealth consciousness” will occur when you thank all your Ancestors, great and small.
Amazing yumminess abounds with a Water Trine Earth Tail Kite flying through the Heavens. Venus is with her Priestess sister Pallas Athena in Cancer holding a 120 degree angle of the Divine Mother forcefield. Neptune (16 Pisces) stirs the Cosmic Crystal singing bowl to resurrect Self-renewal while Jupiter (Retrograde 15 Scorpio) with Verte (18 Scorpio) excavate the deeper recesses of you inner Gold to uncover your divine truth.
Mystical Rectangle ~ Secrets to the Alchemy of a Mystical Rectangle are found in harmonizing the octaves. The Full Moon and Sun make the first octave. Guess what makes the next? Share and Like the magic to read on!
It’s the North (7 Leo) and South node (7 Aquarius) octave! The Sun and North Node create the YOD to Saturn (7 Retrograde) Capricorn. North and South Nodes are timed to release a New order by liberating a New culture in the Human collective. Wholeness, happiness and enjoyment result as this new way of living takes form as a well-established culture whose people accept it whole-heartedly. The YOD energy requires a spiritual connection to ground the energy in the material world Here and Now. The Renaissance is here. Do you have your ball gown and are you ready to dance?
Sabian Secrets: Hierophant & Aspirant
Moon at 8 degrees Sagittarius: “A MOTHER LEADS HER SMALL CHILD STEP BY STEP UP A STEEP STAIRWAY.” KEYNOTE: The need in any social situation to assist the less evolved in their management of the problems which society requires its members to solve. Each adult is responsible for helping a child learn. The child learns by being taught by example. Every generation must involve itself in teaching the next generation even the simplest skills. Climbing is a skill made necessary by the building of higher levels. Mother Moon invites you to expand your SOCIAL CONCERN for all members of your society.
Sun at 8 degrees Gemini: “A QUIVER FILLED WITH ARROWS.” KEYNOTE: Man’s aggressive relationship to natural life, as a basis for survival and conquest. The bow and arrows represent symbolically man’s ability to extend the scope of his conquest of nature to build a larger base for the collective development of a culture and an organized society. Implied in the symbol of the arrow is the ability to take aim. The mind of man is essentially a trans-piercing power; it goes through the object toward which it is aimed. The Sun tells you to seek beyond the obstacles on your path. The Zen practice of archery sees the obstacle as the ego. The archetypal symbol of Man, as the Conqueror, must aim and take hold of his mental power. You are learning now to understand the nature of your instinctual drives and of the limiting power of the ego.
The Sun aspect (Self) draws in Saturn, currently retrograding through Capricorn at 7 degrees. Saturn’s Sabian image is: “IN A SUN-LIT HOME DOMESTICATED BIRDS SING JOYOUSLY.” KEYNOTE: The wholesome happiness which subservience to the ideals and patterns of a well-established culture brings to those who accept them unreservedly. There is a glorifying power of the benefits of what a well-integrated society brings to its people. Saturn was the ruler of the Golden Age before he became a symbol of limitations. He who gives thanks for the value of the lessons of limitations can create a serene and happy existence. Saturn, great Teacher, is showing you how you can enjoy your life’s current condition by allowing the spiritual values it embodies to fill your consciousness. In a healthy culture, human beings can find ENJOYMENT in any role they are born to play.
Release & Have More!
Take this expansive Full Moon to draw up what needs to be released from deep within you. Utilize the Sabian Symbol images to unlock those deeper layers and release with more ease. Locate your Sagittarius and Gemini-ruled houses in your Natal chart to align with your personal power. The more you can release with the Monk’s Moon, the higher your frequency for “Having” (Taurus New Moon energy) will be.

This is a highly spiritual time to connect with Lunar Ladies resident Lama, Lhakpa Gelek Nwang Sherpa, to receive the Monk’s Moon’s blessings! Lama Lhakpa hosts Full Moon Power Puja prayer circles and also is available now to perform individual puja prayer ceremonies to remove obstacles.
