On November 22 (9:39PM PST) and November 23rd (12:39am EST), 2018 the Full Moon glows in the inquisitive and perceptive sign of Gemini. The sign that is full of energy and loves to see, learn, experience, and absorb everything that comes along her path. She’s quick in her thinking and is wired to move through topics a million miles an hour. Ideas? She has plenty. Curiosity? It drives her. Confusion? She lives it. Boredom? She despises it. Words romance her and if she feels like it she’ll use them to romance you, impress you, challenge you, spin you, entertain you, and inspire you. Her shadow creeps in when the chatter in her mind starts to consume her. If this happens then it’s not long before the tension spills over and Gemini finds herself depleted and needing to recover from extreme emotional exhaustion.
So what does this mean for this Full Moon? Well first let me take a moment to mention that the Sun just moved into the expansive and adventurous sign of Sagittarius, Mars is now in the dreamy and transcendent sign of Pisces, Venus completed 40 days and nights in her retrograde cycle mostly in Scorpio, Mercury then said, “my turn” and entered retrograde for 21 days on November 16th in Sagittarius, and then back on November 8th Jupiter decided it was time to leave Scorpio and enter the sign of Sagittarius. Phew! Can we say changes?! So with this Full Moon in Gemini be ready for an increase in mental stimulation, new ideas forming, an abundance of possibilities arising, curiosity piqued, information overflowing, and there’s even a chance your perspective might change on a topic or two.
The ruler of Gemini is Mercury and since it just turned retrograde it’s that time when detours, delays and hiccups occur a little more frequently. The point isn’t the mishaps, the frustration, or the confusion, but rather to get us to slow down to see what really needs our attention. It’s usually not the best time to sign a contract or finalize a deal. And if you do, let’s just say there’s a good chance that you might have to go back and revise things before it can be considered a “done deal.” The key for any transaction right now is to take your time and read every line, communicate every detail, ask questions, and be prepared to listen to all sides. Oh, and remember to take note of the things that are also left unsaid – this could possibly help prevent you from encountering some miscommunication. If you feel stuck, keep in mind that there’s usually another way. Stay present, remain open, and maybe you’ll hear or see something from a different perspective that ends up freeing you.
Let’s address the fact that Mars is in the dreamy sign of Pisces and is making a challenging aspect to this Full Moon. Maybe we are being asked to claim what it means to be a spiritual warrior or maybe we need to expand our knowledge with a new and compassionate vision for our future. Or maybe you’ll feel compelled to take a risk in the face of fear, or maybe you’ll find yourself engaging in some reckless behavior. Maybe you’ll find yourself wrapped up in a conflict due to displaced anger or maybe you’ll feel the intuitive pull that tells you it’s time to move on. Maybe you’ll find yourself caught inside a heavy blanket of apathy or maybe you’ll feel inspired to follow the calling that your inner guides or soul have been nudging you to take. How you experience this energy largely depends on how you choose to engage with it.
I’d also like to point out that Jupiter plays a key role in this Full Moon and so we can be sure that expansion, growth, and abundance are part of the equation. This combination of Gemini and Sagittarius can inspire some fun and wild energy that is fueled with curiosity and a desire to know more. While this might sound exciting, keep in mind that it’s important to pace yourself. When expansion is on the table it’s usually best to prepare yourself for a marathon and not just a sprint.
While you might find yourself ready to take that big leap it will be important that you stay mindful of any loose ends that might pop up at this time. It would be wise to think before you speak because with the rapid flow of information from Gemini and the opposition to this Sagittarius Sun, we could also find that we become overly attached to our ideas and not leave much room for the voice of another. It’s the perfect recipe for words to fly out in haste creating a path of destruction along the way. So be mindful of your thoughts, speak with compassion, and take responsibility for the words you share. It will help if you remain flexible to the flow of events and keep that inquisitive mind of yours open, especially if you find yourself caught in the middle of any heated debates.
While we all might feel pulled during this Full Moon to engage in some new ideas, we will all experience this lunar energy differently depending on where Gemini is located in your chart or if you have a natal planet associated with it. If you would like a more personalized reading, I’d love to set up a session with you.
