Mantra: “Neptune, Lord of the Ocean, dissolve my insecurities and disappear my fears.”
An important lunar event is upon us, bringing with it an energy of endings and change as we prepare to say goodbye to Spring and welcome the Summer. On Tuesday, June 14th at 4:52 a.m. Pacific Time, the Moon will sit exactly opposite the Sun as it rises in the sky.
This month, the opposition of the luminaries highlights the Moon in Sagittarius, reflecting the light of the Sun in Gemini. In astrology, this is often called the “mental axis,” as these two zodiac signs are concerned with issues around logic, knowledge, and philosophy of life. So, under this lunation, it is only natural for our mind to be incredibly active, putting us in a deep state of thought.
For the past three weeks, the Sun in Gemini has been reawakening our curiosity, splitting our attention between many different interests, social events, and people. It has been fun and maybe interesting, but as the Moon becomes full, it brings to our attention the fact that our energy is dispersed and spread too thin. As an archetype, Sagittarius is the Sign of the Archer, the tireless Spiritual seeker who succeeds when having a clear target. At this time, expect to feel an inner clash between your emotions (Moon) and your ego (Sun).
A moment of crisis might also be in store due to the luminaries forming a tricky configuration called a T-square with Neptune, the Lord of the Seas. In this position, Neptune can cast a cloud over us, bringing confusion and even distorting the facts and our perception of reality. In astrology, one of Neptune’s jobs is to dissolve what it touches, and this time, it is bound to do so by putting us through a mini-crisis of faith.
2022 has been highly colored by the energy of this planet, and in some cases, its influence has meant an injection of newfound creativity, inspiration, and more compassion. But because Neptune is also the Planet of Fantasy, its act of appearance at this lunar event might mean the dissolution of illusions we have actively or passively adopted.
To harness this energy, find something that you would like to see disappear from your life. And in the spirit of offering it to this planetary deity, allow for its cosmic waters to dissolve your deepest fears and insecurities, under the moonlight.
