Tarot spread and astro-tarot forecast for the June 2023 full moon in Sagittarius

The June 2023 full moon falls in the sign of Sagittarius. The freedom loving Sagittarius archetype is in a constant search for inspiration, new avenues of exploration, and adventure. This is a sign that gets bored of the status quo easily, and needs the rush of a new quest to keep them on their toes.

Spiritually, the Sagittarius archetype teaches us to cultivate our own personal relationship with the divine. Contrary to what most religions and a lot of spiritual teachers say, you don’t need an intermediary between you and Source/God/the Universe. You have that connection available to you at all times. Learning to tune in and trust that connection is where a lot of us seem to stumble, though.

The energy around this particular full moon is both playful and profound. While the June 2023 full moon highlights our creativity and creative expression, it also asks us to examine our life choices and responsibilities.


We could find ourselves pulled between tending to our responsibilities and getting more organized and wanting to focus on our creative pursuits and hobbies. There’s a possibility, too, that both these areas may be intertwined.

Ultimately, this June 2023 full moon is a good time to look at the ways in which we can take better care of ourselves. Make some time to explore what brings you joy and satisfaction, and do more of that! Balance that with your responsibilities and obligations, and you’re gold!

Astro-tarot influences for the June 2023 full moon in Sagittarius

To throw some more light on the June full moon astrology, let’s take a look at the astro-tarot influences of this lunation. The Sagittarius full moon falls in decan 2, which is represented by the Nine of Wands. This is to be interpreted in conjunction with Temperance, which is associated with Sagittarius.

The Daily Pause Oracle Deck

I designed this beautiful, 40-card oracle deck to bring in some stillness, to give us a word or an idea to reflect on as we go about our day.

Supported by the four elements – earth, air, fire, water – and a carefully thought-out structure that connects the cards, The Daily Pause oracle will help you to listen to and trust your own inner knowing.

There’s no learning curve involved with using this deck. Just get quiet, shuffle the cards, pull one out, and reflect on the word you’re presented with.

These cards closely reflect the broad themes of this full moon. The suit of Wands relates to our creative fire, to the things we do and create in the world. If you look closely at the image on this card, you can see a certain battle weariness starting to set in. To me, it generally indicates an impending burn out.

It’s not easy to maintain the fiery Wands energy at its full brightness, after all. What is needed is some Temperance — balance and rest. These are two ideas that are having a bit of a moment in the cultural zeitgeist currently. Everywhere you turn, people are talking about the importance of rest, of striking a balance between work and play, of chilling rather than hustling.

In a world that has long valued the hustle and grind, rewarded busyness and being married to work, and pushed for the monetization of every hobby that you’re even half-way good at, there is a lot to be said for these ideas.


The key with these ideas, though, is balance. How do you find the sweet spot between work and play, between chasing your dreams and stopping to smell the roses? What ideas and values are you holding your sense of self and worth up to? Do those ideas still resonate with you, or is it time to create a new value system by which you can navigate your life and interests? How can you infuse a sense of play in your life?

These are just some of the questions that you can consider under the light of this full moon in Sagittarius.

This symbol speaks to me of legacy — specifically the legacy that we build and leave behind. The thing with legacies, though, is that we don’t always know that we are building them. We can’t always know the impact that our work may be having on the people who are seeing it, or who will see it years down the road. We just build, by which I mean we focus on doing the things we love, that fill us up, that give us a sense of contentment. Perhaps our biggest legacy is building and modelling the fact that such a life is possible.

In 360 Degrees of Wisdom: The Sabian Oracle, Lynda Hill writes, “There may be a feeling of the need to establish some type of monument. It can be something that makes a huge impression, something that won’t easily be forgotten. Organization of people and labor towards a common goal on any scale can lead to great accomplishments. You may need an architect or a tour guide, and inner wisdom, as this will guide you. The resources that are available can bring re-evaluations to current dilemmas.”
