On June 4th, there is a fiery Full Moon at 13° Sagittarius, the sign of the archer, adventurous and optimistic. 

If you are feeling far from optimistic, Saturn, the great teacher and ruler of reality, is making a tense aspect with the Full Moon in Sagittarius. 

Full moons are times when it is hard to keep our emotions in check, not to keep us awake at night, but to bring to light what was hidden in the dark, paving the way for breakthroughs. Trust the timing and have faith in your ability to deal with the challenges. 

Saturn and Jupiter

This Full Moon in Sagittarius highlights the contrast between Jupiter and Saturn.

Jupiter, the ruler of Sagittarius, expands everything it touches and offers boundless opportunities and optimism. 

On the other hand, Saturn contracts everything it touches, bringing reality checks that might lead to pessimism. 

Jupiter can enhance our expectations and make us feel invincible until reality crashes in. 

What do you do when reality doesn’t match your expectations? What beliefs do you hold? Do you look the other way? Or do you find out where the issue is?

Do you believe you have what it takes to deal with the constraints of reality? With obstacles and challenges? 

Realistic Optimism

In between unrealistic pessimism and unrealistic optimism, there is a middle ground where this Full Moon archer’s arrow lands – realistic optimism. 

Unrealistic pessimism: Whatever I do, no good things will come.

Unrealistic optimism: Without doing anything, only good things will come.

Realistic optimism: When I do my work, good things will come. 

When you are a realistic optimistic, you have the confidence that good things will come when you do the work, solutions will appear when you tackle problems, and challenges will help you grow as part of the process. And this, in turn, leads to success. 

Beliefs and mindsets determine the results. This Full Moon in Sagittarius asks you to do the work and believe you will succeed. 

“Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t – you’re right,” 

Henry Ford


Realistic optimism is the courage to explore opportunities rather than being blocked by risk and failure, believing that the future will be better than the past. This mindset encourages the belief that when one puts in the work, results will follow. 

Confidence is necessary to achieve this mindset, and a good dose will come from the harmonious involvement of Mars and Black Moon Lilith in Leo.

Mars, the planet of action and confidence, will give you a fighting spirit. Black Moon Lilith, the dark feminine, will give you the power to stand up for yourself. Leo is the sign unafraid to take centre stage. 

If you can believe it, you can do it. 

Use this Full Moon in Sagittarius to gain clarity on what beliefs you need to release for a healthier mindset in preparation for the upcoming New Moon in the sign of the mind, Gemini, which is the lunar cycle to work on your mindset. 

With the right mindset and confidence, success is within reach.
