Full Moon Ritual Meditation for Clearing the Mind & Developing Concentration

The energy of this moon can be a little overwhelming.  To keep calm and positive practise the following meditation:

Get yourself in a safe, comfortable space, uncross your legs, close your eyes, take a deep breath, bring your awareness into your belly and …..take some slow, deep, quiet, long breaths in through the crown of your head and out through the soles of your feet.

Becoming aware of the space around your skin….tune into the stillness of the physical space you’re in and……… with each exhale just allow yourself to let go a little more, to sink into yourself and just relax deeper and deeper and deeper……

Imagine the crown of your head opening and a beautiful white light, like rain pouring down, through your open crown and washing through your brain and as that white light washes through your brain, your brain becomes empty and clear as the light simply washes all the words and thoughts away…………all the way, away now………… so the words and thoughts just drip through your brain, down through your arms and drip into the floor through the ends of your fingers and toes.  

Beautiful white shower of light cleansing, purifying you, clearing you of the need to think, softening your mind, letting it go for a moment, just relax and let the white light clear the screens of your mind like the screen of thoughts just washed away …as a thought comes in it just gets wiped away through the white light of rain….continuing to breathe and experience ever deeper peace…..and ….

When you feel ready, wriggle your toes and fingers and come back to full waking awareness.  Enjoy a good stretch and continue with your day.

Sun opposite Moon brings your home, family, and intimate relationships into sharper focus for the following two weeks of this moon phase.

The Fixed Stars

Full Moon June 2021 is in the Sign of Capricorn. But as the star map below shows, it is in the Constellation of Sagittarius. This discrepancy is due to the precession of the equinoxes. It has moved the Sun Signs almost a whole Sign out of alignment with the Constellations from which they were named over 2000 years ago.

The closest named star to the Moon by longitude is Polis, located at the top of the Archers bow. But there is a closer unnamed star not shown above, in the northern constellation of Hercules. 102 Herculis was part of the obsolete constellation Cerberus, the three-headed monster held by Hercules.

  • 0309 – 102 Herculis
  • 0327 – Full Moon June 2021
  • 0330 – μ Sagittarii, Polis

Fixed Star Polis is of the nature of Jupiter and Mars. It gives success, high ambition, martial desires, horsemanship, keen perception, domination [1], and truthfulness. [2] Polis also gives a keen and profound interest and knowledge of things spiritual and can indicate high office in spiritual life. [3]

Constellation Cerberus is said to cause faithfulness, devotion, industry, watchfulness, and to restrain from evil, but to give danger of poison. [1]

Constellation Hercules is said to give strength of character, tenacity, fixity of purpose, an ardent nature, and dangerous passions. [1]

Full Moon June 2021 Summary

The June 24 full moon is very optimistic and generous because it is sextile Jupiter. The extremely close conjunction to fixed star Polis makes it an especially fortunate moon phase with an emphasis on success, honesty, and spirituality.

The good fortune and honesty of this full moon are particularly helpful to counteract the deceptive and treacherous influence of the June 10 solar eclipse. The effects of the June 24 full moon lasts for two weeks up to the July 9 new moon.


This decan is the home of the ruthless fixed star Facies. The similarity with the name Facies and Fascist is too uncanny to ignore when you have some prime fascistic types born within this decan, Moon in Capricorn 1 natives include; Adolf Hitler, Joseph Goebbels and Marine Le Pen…

Still, its bad-ass reputation fits splendidly, since Capricorn 1 is used to being the black sheep of the family. The Moon here often has to dish out tough love, and for this, it is never thanked until far into the future. By this time the goat has moved many mountains away, but it does not care much for fawning appreciation anyhow.
