Get Ready to Celebrate with the Super Full Moon in Sagittarius
Sagittarius, on the other hand, is the most optimistic, adventurous sign, the happy-go-lucky sign, the sign that doesn’t like anything too serious, so a Full Moon in Sagittarius tends to be a lot less heavy than normal Full Moons. We don’t want to deal with that!
This is very fitting as we come out of the Mercury retrograde (which ended June 3rd). That was hard enough; let’s enjoy ourselves.
What is a Super Moon?
This Full Moon in Sagittarius also happens to be a Super Full Moon.
Supermoons are when the Moon is at its closest to the Earth in a month, and a Super Full Moon is when this happens under a Full Moon. While the Moon is closest to the Earth with a Supermoon, it’s not necessarily bigger (at least to us laymen), but it is brighter.
Supermoons usually occur about two to four times every year.
How exactly you calculate them can vary, so right now, we may be in the first of two Super Full Moons (with next month’s also being a Super Full Moon), or we may be in a series of four Super Full Moons in a row (started with last month’s Full Moon Lunar Eclipse and continues through the August 11th Full Moon).
This Full Moon in Sagittarius seems to be the only one everyone agrees is a Supermoon.
About the Super Full Moon in Sagittarius
What’s the significance of a Super Full Moon in astrology? It really depends on who you ask! Some believe that it amplifies the energy of the zodiac sign it’s occurring in, so Sagittarius in this case.
That would make this period around the Full Moon in Sagittarius excellent for:
- learning, teaching, writing, publishing, or speaking
- travel, especially far distances or to new places
- marketing or promotions
- dealing with the law
- pursuing what you believe
We can also turn our moods around in a big way since Sagittarius is so optimistic and may finally feel like things are looking up after a period where everything seemed sour. Time to celebrate!
Some believe that Super Full Moons bring out more drama, so that can be something we need to avoid. With Sagittarius, drama may revolve around our beliefs or with not listening to other opinions and needing to be more open.
Some also believe that Super Full Moons make it more important for us to take action to eliminate unnecessary sludge in our lives, whether it’s relationship issues, work issues, family issues, or personal issues. We can become more aware of what’s wrong and feel more compelled to do something about it.
The Full Moon in Sagittarius comes sextile Saturn in Aquarius, which is highly beneficial. Saturn makes plans, makes progress, exercises discipline, and makes things happen, so while we’re feeling really good, we can still get or stay on the right track and make progress.
The Full Moon is also square Neptune in Pisces, and this is a challenging aspect. Neptune in Pisces likes to bring foggy energy, so we may struggle with seeing things as they really are, and everything we need to know may not be available to us yet.
We need to make sure we’re super connected to our intuition so we can rely on that confidently while also maintaining a solid connection to reality. Saturn helps with that, so hopefully, we’re alright no matter what.

Crystals for the Full Moon in Sagittarius
Using crystals can be great during Full Moons to help control the emotional energy we’re sure to feel. That can be even more important with the Super Full Moon if it does increase the energy, and we need all the help we can get!
Make sure to cleanse your crystal(s) before using so you’re not bringing in any extra energy (there’s already enough!)—if you’re not sure how to, check out this article on 7 Ways to Cleanse Your Crystals in Less Than 10 Minutes.
There are some crystals that are helpful to use with the Full Moon in general, like:
- Clear quartz (pretty much good for anything)
- Moonstone (connecting to the Moon)
- A black crystal, like black tourmaline or black obsidian (for grounding, clearing, protecting)
Specifically for the Full Moon in Sagittarius, some crystals you can use are:
- Aventurine (adventurous, prosperous)
- Smoky quartz (travel, movement)
- Lapis lazuli (wisdom)
- Labradorite (spiritual)
You can keep your crystal ritual simple and just hold it in your non-dominant hand while under the Moon, gently breathing and feeling the energy flow to and from the crystal into you. Allow your intuition to open up and see what comes to you.
If you want to do a little more for your Full Moon in Sagittarius ritual, you can write out your intentions first, then meditate with your crystal. Keep the crystal with your intentions overnight.
Thank the Moon and the crystal when you’re done!
4 Full Moon in Sagittarius Rituals
If you’re looking for other rituals to use with the Full Moon in Sagittarius, here are four you can choose from depending on what you’d like to accomplish:
1. Meditate for Openness
A meditation ritual can be super helpful for opening you up in a variety of ways, including with how you express yourself, with your intuition, and with life overall.
What you need:
- nothing, unless you want a meditation track to listen to while meditating (recommended you choose one that features the outdoors)
Sit in a comfortable, quiet place. Focus on your breathing, slowly inhaling and exhaling.
Listen to the track you want to use, or imagine you’re outdoors somewhere that you find beautiful and spacious, like on top of a mountain overlooking the horizon, or at a waterfall listening to the water, or on a river watching the streams of water go by.
Feel the sense of openness in this space. Let this fill you.
You are as open as nature.
Stay in this for as long as you’re comfortable, feel it is needed, or have time for. Feel free to come back to do this for as long as you need.
2. Candles for Communicating Desires
A candle ritual is always easy to do and can be quick to accomplish. This one can help you focus on communicating more clearly what you want and need.
What you need:
- a blue or purple candle
- matches or a lighter
- paper and something to write with
- a fireproof dish or container
Cleanse your space however you’d like (you can burn incense, palo santo, or sage; play some music or sing; bang a bowl or twigs, or even simply just clap your hands around the space).
Write a list of your desires on the piece of paper.
Light the candle, and sit with it for a few minutes, staring into the flame and imagining its strong energy.
Light the paper with the flame from the candle and let it burn completely in the fireproof dish or container. Bury the ashes or flush them down the drain.
You can either let the candle burn out on its own (try to get a small candle if you do that, so it’s not left unattended burning) or snuff it out (wet your fingers and pinch the wick, or use a candle snuffer).
3. A Bath for Healing
A bath ritual can be excellent for clearing out your energy and promoting healing, especially under a Full Moon.
What you need:
- bath or shower
- anything you want to decorate the space with (candles, crystals, flowers, etc.) or set the mood (music, essential oils, etc.)
- anything for the water itself (bubble bath, herbs, salts, Florida water, Moon water, etc.)
Decorate your space and set the mood as you’d like. Fill your tub with water and add whatever you want to it.
Take your bath, and imagine all of the challenges within you being taken into the water and the water providing you with restorative energy in its place.
If you want to shower instead, fill a container, cup, or bowl with water and whatever you want to add to it. Take a shower, and at the end, pour the water on your body.
4. Get Moving for Awakening
There are ritual dances from all around the world, but you can just improvise here and dance as you feel like it. The goal is to awaken your energy via movement since Sagittarius rules your hips and thighs.
What you need:
- music (whatever kind gets you moving!)
Tip: You might want to stretch before getting started.
Play the music, and let yourself dance however you feel. If it looks and seems totally wonky, who cares, no one can see you. This is just to let loose and let the energy come alive within you.
If you’re absolutely anti dancing, going for a walk can accomplish the same thing.

Life doesn’t have to be so practical all of the time. Be a little Sagittarius and have some fun!
