We're obsessed with the Galactic Center, and you should be too! It's a super-massive black hole at the center of our Milky Way galaxy. In the same way the planets of our solar system orbit around the Sun, every celestial body in our galaxy orbits around this cosmic abyss. It's essentially the black-hole sun to our own Sun.
Astrologically speaking, we work with the Galactic Center as a source of divine insight, inspiration, and guidance. It produces so much gravity, keeping everything in order, that symbolically, we feel that it knows how to organize our soul's odyssey through lifetimes.
The more closely we can listen to the divine whispers of the Galactic Center, the more fully we can live out our own destinies. But why are we going on and on about this lesser-known Astrological feature? Because Saturday's Full Moon happens smack dab in the center of it!
The Gemini Full Moon happens at 27 degrees, directly opposing the Sun at 27 degrees Sagittarius—and guess where the Galactic Center sits? That's right, between 26 and 27 degrees Sagittarius. Yup, it's that big! It takes up two degrees of the Zodiac. That makes this lunation a major opportunity for receiving the insights and downloads that our deepest self needs to move forward. Remember, Full Moons illuminate the dark for us. Perhaps this moon can shed some light into that super-massive black hole and help us see what's next.
But wait, there's more! The Full Moon makes a beautiful trine to Jupiter in Aquarius, almost to the degree. This helpful aspect to the planet of growth and abundance suggests that the leaps we've been wanting to make just needed a little extra information—maybe even a little extra blessing too.
It's a great moon to get the Goddess on the phone and tell her your deepest desires. She'll not only pick up, she'll help them come true.
Read your Full Moon HOMOSCOPE for your Rising Sign and then for your Sun Sign. And if they resonate, please share them with the world!
