The Sagittarius Full Moon Kicks Off Summer Travel Season. Pack Your Bags!

Adventure calls—and it’s time to answer—under the light of the spontaneous Sagittarius full moon Thursday, May 23 (at 9:53 AM EDT). What far-flung vistas are you currently obsessed with? Let the travel planning commence!

The Sagittarius full moon bolsters expansion beyond your “borders” of what’s comfortable and familiar. Under the influence of the globetrotting Archer, packing your bags for an epic getaway is wholeheartedly encouraged!

If you can’t literally travel, seek fresh horizons through education, personal-growth work and experiences that push you into inspiring new terrain. Nothing ventured, nothing gained!

The Sagittarius moon also maximizes everything in its path. If you’ve been waiting for the right time to launch an idea, a plan, a project—now is the time!

Love also expands at the Sagittarius full moon

Single (or sort-of single?) Do you need to diversify your dating portfolio? If you keep going out with the same person in a different package over and over (and over!), that would be an obvious YES! Since Sagittarius is the zodiac’s cultural ambassador, you could find a love connection with someone outside your usual crowd. Let go of the idea that you have a type. An open mind could will open your heart.

Coupled? Have you slipped into an old-marrieds groove? Yawn no more! This fiery and excitement-boosting full moon in Sagittarius activates the spirit of adventure in love, too. Expand beyond comfortable and familiar “borders.”

This Sagittarius full moon favors multicultural mingling, baecations and romantic retreats where you can learn a sultry new skill like erotic massage or tantra. How far are you willing to travel beyond your comfort zone? If you’re stuck in a rut, a nakedly honest conversation can bring back the heat.

Aries (March 19-April 19)

Hello, new horizons! The Sagittarius full moon illuminates your international ninth house, giving you a serious case of wanderlust. What’s more, this lunar light could bring a supersized opportunity in a distant locale. Be ready to cross county lines—or maybe international borders—on a moment’s notice, Ram. Alternatively, you could be rolling out the welcome mat for a globetrotting guest. People from different backgrounds or countries are primed to make a positive impact on your life over the coming two weeks, so look far beyond city limits for the connections you crave.

Taurus (April 19-May 20)

Springtime sizzle, here we go! The fiery Sagittarius full moon in your erotic eighth house awakens the desires you’ve kept within. From sexy role-playing games to experimenting with tantra, allow yourself to revel in getting your motor purring. This lunar light is the manifestation point of something you set into motion six months ago, near the corresponding new moon. Officializing vibes are in the air, possibly turning an on-again, off-again connection into the real deal. Just don’t settle for a purely physical connection. Emotions will invariably become involved. A joint business venture or investment could also manifest today.

Gemini (May 20-June 20)

It takes two to make a thing go right. The Sagittarius full moon activates your seventh house of partnerships, setting the scene for committed bonding. Casual dating could morph into a monogamous relationship, or you could finally close a killer deal. On the flip side, this lunar light could make it clear that it’s time to move on from a lukewarm alliance that shows little promise for the future. Regardless of the direction your pairings take, relationships will substantially evolve over the next two weeks. Go with the flow instead of struggling to maintain the status quo.

Cancer (June 20-July 22)

Drop and give ’em 20? Gladly! Under the Sagittarius full moon in your sixth house of healthy living, your motivation tanks get topped up when it comes to body love. The next two weeks are prime for getting into a serious self-care groove. Incorporate exercise into your daily routine, make veggies a large portion of your plate, get up-to-date on your regular checkups. Your work life also ramps up during this cycle, so you might want to postpone any taxing juice cleanses for another time. Bring your A-game!

Leo (July 22-August 22) 

The Sagittarius full moon sets your passionate fifth house on fire, making your desires crystal-clear. Never mind being polite about what you want. If something (or someone) isn’t getting your motor purring, now’s the time to be honest. For the next two weeks, amp up the glam factor, Leo, and make maximalism your new style M.O. Some long-awaited accolades and an adoring public are heading your way, and you’ll want to look your best. Roar!

Virgo (August 22-September 22)

Intimacy is the name of the game, Virgo. With the Sagittarius full moon illuminating your fourth house of emotional ties, you’re most comfortable sharing with your nearest and dearest. Some frank conversations could touch your heart, triggering the waterworks. (Carry extra tissues!) A key woman in your life could approach you to join her on an endeavor or a trip. If you’re looking to hang your hat somewhere new, the next two weeks could reveal that dream real estate listing. The interior-decorating bug may bite some Virgos, especially if the renos serve a practical purpose.

Libra (September 23-October 22)

The Sagittarius full moon electrifies your third house of dynamic duos, leading the way to promising partnerships. Whether you’re seeking a creative collaborator, a romantic relationship or a festival buddy, keep your eyes and ears open. In fact, your perfect plus-one could be someone you already know—perhaps even a person you met six months ago, near the corresponding new moon. Social networking sites and dating apps can be the perfect search tools under these mobile-friendly moonbeams. Activate your profile and comment generously on other people’s posts!

Scorpio (October 22-November 21)

Show YOU the money! The Sagittarius full moon in your second house of cash and work could bring you a major windfall or the opportunity to scale the ladder of success. If a heftier salary isn’t in the cards, it’s a stellar time to renegotiate your responsibilities and pitch a more distinguished title. At the other end of the spectrum, you may decide you’ve reached the end of the road at a current job. As you venture down a new career path that’s more aligned with your higher self, revamp your budget. Keep your radar up for a sage investment opportunity over the next two weeks.

Sagittarius (November 21-December 21)

The limelight beckons, Archer—and under the full moon in Sagittarius, your star is shining brightly. Enjoy the buzz of celebrity status that seems to follow you into any room.

This full moon lifts the galactic gag order and gives you the green light to voice your strong opinions. Recommit to living unapologetically with your fierce indie spirit at the wheel.

Capricorn (December 21-January 19)

Trust in the universe and blast off into the stratosphere! The Sagittarius full moon illuminates your twelfth house of transitions, helping you let go so you can grow. Stop thinking you can pull a fast one on fate—it’s not yours to control, Capricorn. Follow the natural urge to surrender, and see what wonderful offerings await you. When you release the past and welcome in fresh energy, you invite miracles into your world. This lunar light could also reveal a wise guru type who can lead you toward bigger and better things.

Aquarius (January 19-February 18) 

Team up with fellow wunderkinds, Aquarius. The Sagittarius full moon electrifies your eleventh house of collaborations, shining its beams on a group endeavor.
