Guru Purnima in Astrology

A Guru is where, we really trying to understand the nature of life. Guru purnima is the day when we get to guru’s teachings and honor our teachers. Full Moon in Sagittarius and Sun in Gemini celebrated as Guru poornima. Sagittarius sign is important because Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter. Gemini and Sagittarius axis where the plane of the galaxy runs which is the sacred spot in all spiritual traditions and is very importance in our spiritual growth in life. On the guru poornima  we can recognize the teachings of the guru. The Sun in Gemini and the Moon in Sagittarius is that point of contrast that our individual intelligence with the deeper bigger picture of life with belief hopes and have spiritual guidance with grace of a guru.

The Sun in Gemini is about intelligence, and moon in Sagittarius about truthful path, and wisdom. Sun in Gemini is very strong for the truthful intelligence and gathering information and being curious about life through the mind. This is a time when our mind is most susceptible to seeing the truth and what is correct. We are most receptive keep getting the teachings and getting what the guru is all about. Whoever your greatest teacher in your life, you want to do your best to imbibe those teachings on that day which leads you to the truth.   

Understanding about teaching and wisdom of life it actually comes more from Gemini sign even than Sagittarius sign. Gemini sign is all the details of life, it's our curiosity, our desire to understand the world intellectually, and use the faculties of discrimination to separate truth from fiction. Sagittarius sign just carries religion, belief, and abstract thinking, but the challenge that belief and to uncover a deeper meaning and purpose in life, you need to access Gemini sign.  Gemini and Sagittarius axis and Virgo and Pisces axis is where we try to understand things intellectually. This is why on full moon in Sagittarius and sun in Gemini have very powerful energy flow for teaching of Guru. So guru purnima is the time to really imbibe your teachings, because you will feel that harmonizing between your intellect and your curiosity of life which is Sun in Gemini and the emotional connection to the bigger picture which is the Moon in Sagittarius.

Gurus or our teachers they inspire us to give us a sense of meaning and a higher truth in life, a higher purpose, and sense of meaning in life.  Purpose comes from Jupiter and it comes in the form of gurus which are teachers things like children, but more specifically what those things doing us is to connect us to our hearts desire, the things we love the most gives us this hopeful approach in life. Planet Jupiter is not just the big rock in the sky but the energy the force the power what Jupiter represent. Jupiter creates Guru or things that teach us in life the great lessons in life such as, it creates children. Children are Great Teachers and things that inspire us and give us a sense of purpose, meaning and hope in life to live and give selflessly. If you have a child, you love that thing the most and it's really give you a sense of meaning and purpose and hope. People have children because its gives them a higher purpose automatically, but that doesn't mean if you don't have a child you don't have a higher purpose. The sense of creative joy in life that's really what Jupiter is. The joy of life as a creative force, the sense of meaning, and purpose that comes from the Jupiter is THE GURU.  

Many people don't really know what their bigger purpose, so having a child, boom right away they come to know what is their bigger purpose in life. But what happens often as once the children grow up and don't need them anymore, then they think, what's my purpose now, “what is it wealth’’ ? and people start to look to things like religion, belief systems, philosophies this is all Jupiter stuff.

Jupiter is not only spiritual but all the planets have a quality of spirituality.  
Sun is the spirituality of confidence and individual power,
Moon is the spiritual quality of receptivity and selfless love,
Mars is the spirituality of being disciplined and doing the right thing,
Mercury is the spirituality of discrimination,
