The Full Moon at 8 degrees Sagittarius will be exact on May 29th at 10:19 A.M. ET
The Sabian symbol for 8 degrees Sagittarius is:
Within the depths of the Earth new elements are being formed
Dane Rudhyar ties this symbol to the alchemical fire within man that at once purifies and transforms his inner world through burning away old responses to life. This process generally goes on motivated by strong emotions, especially those that revolve around sex and love exchange and expression, and occur largely unconsciously in response to outer stimuli until eventually it becomes obvious that a profound inner transmutation has occurred that is defined by a new level of awareness and a fresh behavioural response to outer situations.
The Sabian symbol for 8 degrees Gemini, where the Sun sits at the time of the Full Moon is the following:
Aroused strikers surround a factory
Rudhyar attributes this symbol to the essentially disruptive nature of the strength of intellect acting outside the balanced yin function of recognizing wholeness/integration as one of the organizing principles of reality. The progressive intellect has created a situation in which Earth is being milked for all she has in order to create a highly prosperous arrangement for a select group in society. This symbol indicates a revolt against privilege and addresses the rebalancing required of us in our relationship to the Earth’s resources. On an internal level it asks us to honour more fully the wisdom of the feeling nature rather than be driven by transient emotional impulses that ask for our division from and competition with the rest of the human family.
There is certainly a high degree of emotional energy circulating with this Moon alongside palpable potential for deep personal growth that rests in our embrace of the intensity that is surfacing, both individually and collectively. Curiously, the elements of the Earth are in question in both symbols, suggesting an added layer of metaphorical alignment of our relationship to self alongside our relationship to Earth. We avoid the consequences of our actions in our management of natural resources just like we take for granted the way our bodies manage the toxins we intake, both physically and emotionally, leading to a generalized aversion of the added efforts required for physical and emotional health, preferring to rest in momentary comfort and satisfaction at the expense of longevity and balance.
The way these two symbols interrelate is clearly obvious in that the embrace of the process of transmutation and healing, which moves the individual out of the isolative ego and into awareness of the collective whole as a part of the self, requires assuming a greater degree of responsibility for all actions and responses that then funnel into our relationship to Earth and its resources. The Earth’s resources as essentially belonging to the human family also hold into the light our relationship to money, as it is likewise a transformed system of resource exchange (recognize that money was historically exchangeable for gold, although it no longer holds that value). Naturally, the evolution of our relationship to money means that we evolve in our emotional relationship one to the other through revolt of privilege and reintroduction of balance and equality as governing principles of the way we relate and organize society. This is a fitting reminder immediately after Uranus’ ingress into Taurus, which heralds an evolution of these themes to come.
Harness the powerful potential for transformation during this Moon by recognizing that alignment with virtuosity, emotional health and willing transformation is of benefit not only to yourself but also to your fellow human beings and to the Earth as the gracious, giving and for-giving entity she is.

This Full Moon highlights your relationship to nourishing your deepest emotional needs and home life in contrast to the pursuit of your life’s purpose and career.
