The Sagittarius Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse on June 5 is full of exciting energy focused on liberation, authenticity, and exploration. If you’re ready to communicate better, discover new traits in your partner, and dive into something new, you’re ready for this lunation!
In Astrology, Lunar Eclipses are magnified Full Moons. They represent unexpected breakthroughs and unique opportunities that only happen during the presence of an Eclipse—so needless to say, this is an exciting moment!
During this period, you may experience significant relationship changes like an engagement, a breakup, or a chance to meet someone new and start over again.
Because the Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse are occurring in the ninth sign of Sagittarius, this lunation is about liberation, authenticity, and exploration.
Singles may find that dating is more about the experience than the outcome during this time, and couples may find that they are more focused on mental stimulation than intimacy.
However you can, spend time out of your normal environment and expose yourself and your relationship to something new.
If you’re a controlling person who always needs to know your next move, try living in the moment and planning a spontaneous date with your love.
If you are an adventurous person who is always moving from one thing to the next, try slowing down long enough to soak in your surroundings. Make a plan to spend more structured time together. Find ways to nurture your love on the go.
To help you manifest your love’s true potential during the Sagittarius Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse, I’ve laid out five things important lessons you can learn about your current or future relationship during this lunation.
1. There’s no love without mental connection.
When you think of Sagittarius, you may not think of romance, commitment, and the fairytale love story—but you could.
Above all other Zodiac signs, Sagittarius encourages men to live their best lives. And if you have the right balance of ingredients in your relationships, it can inspire your man to be the best partner possible for you, too.
But the secret to relationships when the Moon is full in Sagittarius isn’t romance and commitment—it’s about exposing the authenticity of your mental connection.
As the opposite sign of Gemini, the social mastermind, Sagittarius is the Zodiac’s brainy adventurer.
Sagittarius thrives on mental stimulation and mastering new skills. So how are you nurturing and developing your mental connection in your relationship?
Do you read together? Do you share or discuss your interests and hobbies? Do you travel together and make a point to do something uplifting and informational at least once a month?
If not, the Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse will expose the weak areas in your relationship so you can fix them. Perhaps it’s time to get involved in a club together or start a simple and fun routine like doing a puzzle every Saturday morning.
Maybe you make a point to engage your close friends and family and take turns hosting a virtual game night every week.
Anything you can do to strengthen your mental connection while having fun is helpful.
2. Your words carry meaning.
Has a partner ever said to you, “You don’t listen to me,” “You don’t understand me,” or “You don’t know how to talk to me”?
If so, the Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius is an excellent time to work on your communication and how you share thoughts.
With Full Moons representing receptivity—and Sagittarius being one of the Zodiac’s best orators—words carry more feeling and meaning during this time.
Sagittarius is a storyteller, so naturally, this is a time where you can be more seductive and charming with your words.
If you are creative, you may have a desire to write your love a poem or a song, or even make him something like a painting or a sculpture.
However, be mindful, as tone of voice and language can cause tension if your partner feels you are projecting stress or flirting inappropriately.
Sagittarius is naturally direct and has a sharp tongue—so make sure there’s no hitting below the belt. Only say things that you mean and want your love to remember.
To work through any mental stress and conflict, get physical.
Sagittarius is a physical fire sign, so it encourages activities that allow the challenging of physical aggression. Try doing things like rollerblading, biking, cardio, rock climbing, etc.
If you or your partner keep having verbal disagreements, your energy is blocked. Get outside and get in motion.
Not only will this keep your energy flowing, but it will also build your sense of teamwork and sportsmanship.
3. It’s okay to have fun.
If you or your partner are one of the more serious, analytical signs like Pisces, Libra, Capricorn, and Virgo, it may be challenging for you to let go and surrender to Sagittarius’s whimsical energy.
Although it may be hard to let go and trust in the strength of your love, the Sagittarius Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse say, “It’s time to loosen up and have some fun. It’s okay to let go and live in the moment. It’s safe here.”
Instead of looking for reasons not to trust, find experiences that help you feel more trusting.
If you’re not a daredevil and don’t want to go skydiving with your partner (understandable!), what about taking an unplanned one-day road trip instead?
Think of all the untapped areas and historical sites in your region. Can you discover something new or rediscover something you’ve already explored?
Is there a river that you would like to go canoeing in? Is there a new park or trail that you’ve never taken? It doesn’t have to be extravagant. Anything fun, joyful, and uplifting is a huge plus during this time.
4. You don’t have to control him to make him love you.
I believe the most important lesson of the 2020 Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius by far is releasing control.
After the intense Scorpio Full Moon in May, you may be grasping onto every inch of security you can find. But Eclipse Season is saying, “not anymore.”
What habits and behaviors do you cling to because they help you feel more in control and aligned with your partner?
Do you constantly check your phone or text him when he’s out with friends? Do you intentionally sabotage his plans so you can spend more time with him? Do you feel anxious when he’s away or doesn’t call when you feel he should?
Although these things are common, observe them more closely because the Sagittarius Full Moon is inspiring you to let go of harmful habits and focus on receiving a love connection that is organic, honest, and pure.
Are you thinking, “Anna, how do I get there?” Well, you start by acknowledging your fears.
It may be hard to talk about your insecurities, but imagine how amazing you will feel once they are released!
Finding healthy ways to support each other’s individual goals and still be a couple is tough, but this lunation reminds you it’s possible.
It’s possible to feel like you are in love with your closest friend and adventure partner.
As a mutable fire sign, there’s nothing Sagittarius’s energy could encourage more. So surrender to the adventure that’s waiting for you. Your love doesn’t need to be controlled.
5. Different is good.
With June’s lunation in open-minded Sagittarius, the Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse say, “different is good.”
Are you feeling a desire to take your relationship outside of what society would consider the status quo? Are you craving a need to be more fluid and open, even if that means seeing other people or taking more time apart?
Before you say “No, I can’t do that, that’s not right,” be willing to experience what society considers different.
If you’re married and your partner says he would like to have more privacy and space, give him more privacy and space. Just because society says that’s not right doesn’t mean it isn’t.
If you’re single and your parents/kids want you to marry a doctor or someone reliable, but you have secretly fallen in love with a younger artist, will you let go of your love out of fear and tradition, or will allow yourself to experience something new?
If you take anything away from this article, take saying YES to love! Take your ability to shape your relationships the way you want, without the approval of anyone else.
Remember, the Sagittarius Full Moon says, “It’s okay to be different, to say what’s on your heart, to take adventures and be more free-spirited. Monogamy doesn’t have to be stale and boring. You can have fun with love!”
