This Saturday, May 21, brings a full moon in expansive, worldly Sagittarius. What's more, it also marks the first of two rare consecutive full moons in the same sign—the next falls on June 20 (the summer solstice). Take note of everything you're building now—and have been since November–December of 2015—as things could come bursting to fruition by next month.
And since May began with five planets in retrograde (backward) motion, your projects and goals may have slowed down or even come to a grinding halt. But don't worry, you get a chance for a do-over on June's full moon, which appears under much clearer skies.
This Sagittarius full moon is also known as a Blue Moon, and will appear near Mars in the night sky. Both the Blue Moon (which is indeed sometimes tinged with a blue color) and the red planet will be visible to the naked eye. The Maine Farmer’s Almanac has defined a Blue Moon as an extra, or bonus, full moon that occurs within a season, since each season typically has three full moons. Because this season has four full moons, this third full moon is therefore being called a Blue Moon. (Capiche?)
