This is the last Full Moon of the year and the decade. The Moon is in Gemini, an airy, intellectual sign that seeks to categorize, connect and gather information. Lying opposite is the Sun in Sagittarius, a fiery, inspiration sign that is searching for a higher truth. Both signs are connected on some level with education, knowing, learning, teaching. Gemini is school, Sagittarius is university. Gemini is facts, Sagittarius is philosophies. Gemini is linear language, Sagittarius is symbolic language. During this full moon we swing between the big picture and the little picture and try to make sense of what we know.
It isn’t easy. There’s so much Earth energy right now, so much CAPRICORN that we’re probably all feeling weighed down in some aspect of our lives. The media too (news is a Gemini function), is full of dire scenarios and horror stories and no doubt is also playing on our minds. Impeachment, Bishop Malone stepping down etc !
Politics aside, the question is, what do you know to be true right now? Saturn sows a seed of doubt and we would be wise to listen. It doesn’t mean that we should focus on every negative thought in our minds or believe that we can’t accomplish our goals. All it means is that we need to take a second look at the information we have and then be prepared to turn over our decisions to that intuitive part of ourselves that sees beyond the mess of pros and cons. Quincunxes between the Moon, Venus and Pluto also bring a sense of unease and a temptation to obsess over what is right or wrong, good or bad. Background pressure is complicating things. The answers we want are not as clear cut as we would like, especially if we’re living in our heads and not listening to our hearts. Typical Gemini.
Mercury, ruler of this full moon is in detriment in the sign of Sagittarius. Thoughts can be scattered in this placement. A quincunx (The inconjunct or quincunx aspect in astrology is formed between planets that are roughly 150 degrees apart. … The two planets involved have a difficult relationship with each other. Sort of like a blind spot when you are driving. Inconjunct means a lack of fusion.) between Mercury and Uranus too adds low level anxiety. However, healer Chiron is trine Mercury, bringing a free flow of shamanic wisdom that asks us to trust ourselves. Between fact and fiction lies our own personal truths. This aspect also reminds us to keep talking to one another as Chiron is a bridge-builder. Without continued communication with one another, we are truly lost. The Moon in Gemini tells us that we must always leave room for dialogue. Keep talking. Keep listening. Keep an open mind.
