Full Moon Time – June 13th Moon Magic

This Friday, June 13th, {yes, Friday the 13th} brings us the June full moon.  It’s going to be an interesting one.  The full moon itself will be in the sign of Sagittarius but Mercury Retrograde is also going on right now.  Let’s break this down and make some sense of all this astro craziness.

That Full Moon

So the full moon is in the sign of Sagittarius.  This sign is all about expansion and growth.  It’s time to start growing and expanding your horizons, reaching for your dreams, and really making things happen that take you beyond your comfort zone and closer to the things you dream about for yourself.

  • Go beyond your limits
  • Break through boundaries
  • Redefine your borders
  • Take leaps of faith
  • Expand your horizons and understand of the world around you

That’s awesome, powerful energy!  A great time to start the groundwork to really do big things.  Now let’s throw a kink in that.


Mercury Is Retrograde

A lot of people lose their shit when Mercury goes retrograde.  It’s silly.  Basically this is a time when communication gets a bit wonky and plans and contracts aren’t favored.  This doesn’t mean you have to put your whole life on hold, it just means that you want to be a little more aware of what you’re up to.  You can read a little more about the whole Mercury Retrograde thing here.

Despite what you may know or hear about this event in the skies keep this one thing in mind – how you react to something like Mercury Retrograde is what really determines how that time plays out for you.  Belief is everything!

If you believe that things are going to go crazy and nothing is going to go your way then that’s what you’re going to manifest around you.

So just keep calm.


Sag Full Moon + Mercury Retrograde = Planning with Cautious Action

Let’s look at this moon as a time to get our heads straight and define out existing limits and boundaries and determine what we want to up-level and what we want more of.  This may not be the most ideal time to take big actions or big leaps of faith but it’s a great time to get things rolling in the right direction with mindset shifts and little steps.

As yourself…

  • What do I want to expand in my life?
  • Where do I want to see growth in my life?
  • Why do I feel a need to grow or expand these things?
  • What small steps can I take over the next few weeks to make this happen?
  • What big steps can I take next to make this happen?


When should you go from small to big steps?

Mercury Retrograde will be going on until July 1st.  It will be moving from a water sign into an air sign – that means going from emotional place to an intellectual place.  Plan then act.

It started in Cancer {a water sign} but by June 17th it goes into Gemini {an air sign}.  Once the 17th passes you might find this to be a better time to start plan your actions and then start doing something about it.  The closer you get to July 1st to make any big changes the smoother they may go.

But again, that doesn’t mean putting life on hold!  Just move forward with caution. 


Empowerment Magic for the Sag Full Moon

I feel like for this full moon some simple empowering magic is best.  It will help to keep you on track to growing your ability to take the big leap of faith to expand and grow.  We’re going to create an Empowerment Moon Jar with herbs and moonstones.


You Will Need:

  • A small Mason Jar
  • 3 moonstones
  • Herbs: Star anise, bay, basil, sage, rosemary, peppermint, oats, majoram, lemongrass, lavender, ginger, flax seed, vanilla bean, thyme {get as many of these as you can; you can use them whole or powered}

Tune the moonstones.

Make sure the jar is clean if it isn’t a new jar.

Add the herbs one at a time to the jar.  As you do this hold them in your hands, feel them, roll them around, rub your hands and the herbs together and carefully let them fall into the jar.  As you do this envision yourself strong, full of passion, and empowered to grow and expand the areas of your life you feel called to change.

Once all the herbs are in there, add the moonstones.

Seal up the jar and hold it up to your heart and take a few deep breaths.  Visualize energy from your heart filling the jar.  Send to it your dreams, wishes, and goals for your growth and expansion.

Give the jar a gentle shake and hear the herbs and stones rattle together.  With this sound you call your desires and send your wishes to the Universe.

Place the jar out in the moonlight.  Bring it back in before the sun rises the next morning.

Any time you want to feel empowered to take steps and actions towards your goals and growth, give the jar a shake.  The rattle is the sound that triggers the vibration of growth and expansion for you.
