The full moon in Sagittarius 2023 is almost here, but what is the energy of this moon, and how can you honor it with a sacred, at-home ritual?
This full moon, we’re immersed in the opposite energies of both Sagittarius (with the full moon) and Gemini (with the sun). Where Sagittarius primarily communicates as a teacher, Gemini communicates to learn. Where Gemini is mostly in the mind, Sagittarius sees a bigger heart and mind picture.
If these signs feature in your birth chart, this full moon will have a deeper effect on you. But even if they are absent from your chart, you still hold the frequencies of these signs within you, along with the other 10 signs, as we all do.
Let’s explore full moon energy, when the full moon is, and the core themes of the full moon in Sagittarius 2023.
What does a full moon symbolize?
A full moon happens roughly every 29 days; with it, we are called to let go, expand, and celebrate. The full moon also shines her light on the darkness within us and our wider collective, and we are invited to meet our shadows so that we can heal them.
The moon represents the feminine, while the sun represents the masculine. This is why women follow the same cycle as the moon (through our menstrual cycle), and men follow the same one-day cycle as the sun. When the moon is at her fullest, we can feel this wave of divine feminine energy and are called to connect with our inner feminine.

What is the full moon in sagittarius 2023 about?
Not all those who wander are lost
Sagittarius is symbolized by the half-man, half-horse figure carrying a bow and arrow. This shows us that we, too, are all many things at once, that we all contain multiple facets and have infinite potential and expansion awaiting us.
The arrow, in particular, can help us harness the unique gifts of Sagittarius this full moon. Although it is precise, so many external factors will influence the arrow’s journey once it leaves the bow. Sometimes it will hit your intended target, and other times it will miss spectacularly. While it’s important for us to aim our arrow in a direction that is beneficial to us and where we wish to grow, we cannot control where our arrow will land.
Can you, even for a little while, let go of the destination and the goal you aim for and enjoy the journey? Are you open to the journey to lead you on a path full of twists and turns, and do you trust you will land where you are meant to?
A quest for truth
Sagittarius is known to be a wanderer, explorer, and philosopher of the zodiac because this sign ultimately seeks truth. This truth can only be found through experience. Walking some challenging paths, facing and navigating obstacles, and trusting that we are held the entire time, even when our faith is tested.
What would happen if you chose to feel your fear and walk your soul path?
A desire for adventure
Sagittarius is also known as the adventurer of the zodiac who loves to travel, explore new places, and begin new journeys. An adventure could be climbing the Great Wall of China or moving to Bali, but it could also take the form of starting a new business venture or even deciding to have a baby.
The running theme in these adventures is that they all require us to meet our fears and take a leap of faith into the unknown. None of us can predict what will happen when we take that jump, and there will inevitably be highs and lows along the way. But on this full moon, can you quiet the fear in your mind and assume that if this is what your soul wants, it will work out for your highest good and for the highest good of all?
True soul adventures are not meant to be easy; they are intended to be lessons. And if we are open to the lessons, wisdom awaits us.
Can you find magic in the mundane?
Gemini is focused on the left side of the brain and associated with logic. Meanwhile, Sagittarius is focused on the right side of the brain and associated with creativity. Together, these polar energies help us integrate these two halves and find wholeness within.
We live in a time when the brain and brain intelligence are held in the highest regard. But this alone provides us with knowledge and little else. What all human beings seek, at their core, is emotional and spiritual awareness and intelligence to move to a high level of consciousness.
On this full moon in Sagittarius, look where you are out of balance in your left and right brain and see how you can integrate both energies for greater understanding and meaning in your life.
Like a sponge, Sagittarius thrives on collecting new information, insights, perspectives, and experiences, all in the hope of greater expansion. But to expand, we must let go of beliefs, stories, patterns, and behaviors that no longer support us and the person we are becoming. We must also be open to new possibilities, truths, and concepts.
Even when it feels like you’ve failed or made a mistake, Sagittarius reminds you that such things do not exist. There are only new experiences to be had, lessons to learn, and expansions that will lead us to the highest evolution of our souls.
Take a small step forward
The lower frequency of Sagittarius struggles to trust itself, its soul path, and the greater Divine plan for us all. As born philosophers, the question and meaning-seeking part of themselves can spiral out of control to the point where they are stuck in a toxic cycle and cannot move forward. Fear starts to control them, they take a negative view of life, and everything starts to feel pointless.
The way out of this low vibration is to invite even a sliver of newness into your world. So on this full moon in Sagittarius, give yourself permission to try a new hobby, cook a new recipe, write one sentence, purchase a domain name for your website, or visit a place you’ve never been. Venture into newness.
Pursue your greatest passion
Mars is the planet of the warrior who will fight to the death for what he believes is right and gives us the courage to face our own internal and external battles. With Mars’ recent move into the sign of Leo, we are given a forceful nudge to discover what truly sets our soul alive and follow that passion fiercely with courage.
Sagittarius’s arrow is also currently aimed toward Antares, a sacred star that is said to be a rest stop for souls on their way to the afterlife. This star also aligns with passion and encourages us to move from our hearts and follow our intuition.
A full moon in sagittarius ritual
Now that you know the flavor and frequency of this full moon in Sagittarius 2023, let’s explore some ways to celebrate it with a full moon ritual at home. As always, take and leave what you like from this list, weave in whatever you feel called to, and make your ritual as short or as elaborate as you like.
I always begin by cleansing the energy of my surroundings and myself to dissolve any negative energy or spirits. You can do this any way you like: by burning herbs, saying a prayer, spraying salt water, or something else.
1. Do an energy-recharging meditation
The first recommendation for your full moon in Sagittarius ritual is to meditate, but this is not just any meditation. To recharge your energy levels, as you sit and breathe, imagine all your energy flowing back to you from wherever in the world it has wandered off to. You can visualize this or get physical and use your arms to “pull” your energy back into your body. Keep doing this until you feel complete.
2. Face one of your fears
It can be as small or as big as you like; it’s up to you. Maybe you have a fear of walking outside without makeup on, a fear of joining a dating app, or a fear of writing a book. Choose one thing you’d like to overcome and take the first step toward it as part of your full moon ritual.
3. Plan a day of adventure
Since Sagittarius is about adventure, why not weave this into your full moon ritual? Go somewhere new, do something you loved as a child that you haven’t done in forever, or do something that gets your adrenaline pumping. Explore, play, and give yourself permission to be amazed and have fun!
4. Do something creative
To engage the right part of your brain and promote integration of both hemispheres, tap into your inner Creatrix. Creativity doesn’t necessarily mean painting or doing an arts and crafts sesh. There is so much more to it than this. Write, sing, cook, bake, weave, knit, design, sketch, glue, scrapbook, dress up… and whatever you choose to do, make sure you do it purely for the joy of it.
5. Welcome in the new
My final invite to you on this full moon in Sagittarius is to breathe some new life into your world by doing something new. Say yes. Take the first step. Reach out. Follow that nudge from your intuition. Let go of anything that no longer serves you so that you can allow the new to flow in.
