full Moon in gemini

DECEMBER 3, 2017

Tomorrow, December 3, 2017, at 8:46am MST, the Moon will reach her peak in the air sign of Gemini at 11 degrees, 40 minutes.  This Moon is a Super Full Moon due to its close proximity to the Earth magnifying the Moon’s bright appearance in the night sky as well as increasing the emotional lunar vibration.  

As the Moon culminates in her full light, feelings also become stronger and we can have a sense of resolve or conclusion about something that needs attention. In the midst of heightened emotions, remain aware of the potential to speak, act, or make decisions that could bring undesired results that may be difficult to undo or fix.

Gemini is an air sign that delights in the unexpected. Curious, with an orientation to communication of all kinds, Gemini seeks an open mind, to an ongoing gathering and exchange of ideas, information, and life experiences. Pure perception.  Conversation, talking, listening, reading, writing, workshops, multi-tasking, shared stories, data and research are natural expressions of Gemini’s versatile, active energy. With so much enthusiastic and agile mental vitality, Gemini can also fall prey to over-extension leading to disorganization and time wasting, as well as the inability to commit.

During the Full Moon, the Sun and Moon oppose each other, as well as the signs they are in. Currently, the Sun is in Sagittarius opposing the Moon in Gemini.  Sagittarius is fire that travels far and wide for experiences that offer knowledge and personal meaning. Sagittarius is optimistic and adventuresome and seeks faith in life itself.  The aspect of an opposition creates an awareness and tension between the two luminaries that ask for integration of these two energies; the integration of head and heart.

Adding influence is transiting Neptune in Pisces creating some challenge through a t-square with the Sun and Moon. Neptune’s sensitive effect reminds us to be still and hear the voices of intuition and compassion, as we hold the balance between keeping an open heart and mind to new ideas and information, with what we believe in based upon our personal values. Both are important in navigating this strong Moon that urges us all to continue to explore, share, and grow from our personal perceptions of the world. Meditation and paying attention to dreams, day or night can be helpful, as well as offering creative inspiration.

Gemini is ruled by Mercury and on December 3rd transiting Mercury in the last degree of Sagittarius will station retrograde until December 22nd. Mercury is in a very tight conjunction with transiting Saturn in Sagittarius adding a dose of reality and serious discussion around our beliefs and desires to grow and explore the world.   Mercury, especially being in the last degree of Sagittarius increases the fiery exuberance of Sagittarius, creating the potential for careless or insensitive communication during this potent emotional moon phase. As Mercury continues in its retrograde, the ability to pause and reflect in thought, word, and action can increase supporting a more considerate end result.

With the Full Moon in Gemini, there can be a strong need to share your feelings, to speak your truth. Gemini energy is quick which can lead to speaking before you think it out. Take a few moments and gather thoughts to speak clearly and from the heart. Remember the importance of listening with attention, creating a safe space for all to be heard. Remain open to something new, something not yet understood or discovered.  A new pathway or solution that could change our minds, and our hearts, reminding us all that in any given moment, the fluidity, the possibility and the wonderment of life is always present
