Hey good peoples. It’s Full Moon day. At 7:05 pm ET, the Moon in Gemini will be opposite the Sun in Sagittarius at 22 degrees. When you look at the chart you notice that the moon is almost all by it’s lonesome on one side of the chart while most of the other planets are clustered and collected on the other. Seems ominous and heavy, doesn’t it? Meh…lol. Ominous? Not really. Heavy? Just a bit.
As I always write, full moons are about culmination and revelation. It’s the mountaintop, the pinnacle at which we take stock of all we have just done and figure out what we can leave behind that we just picked up. What stories and half truths did you pick up this go round? What truths did we stop ourselves from telling because of something deep inside of ourselves? When the new moon for this cycle started, the sun and moon were squaring Neptune and moving close to Saturn. I shared about how this cycle could be about moving forward in the search for truth by doing something different and how we could benefit from some loose structure because finding that string of truth could be a little hinky.
Now the moon’s close opposition to Saturn suggests that getting serious about enacting boundaries and sifting thru the stories that we have collected should be on our agenda. The Moon in Gemini feels very comfortable collecting all different types of information and tidbits.It’s fed by differing perspectives; constantly moving about as curiosity dictates. Seems great but at some point, we have to settle down and delve into what we have collected. Saturn is in mutable Sag but it still helps to give some grounding and desire for truth to the flights of fancy and magic that the Moon wants us to go on. While the Sun in Sagittarius wants us to go far in our search, the Moon in Gemini calls for us to stick closer to home and our hearts for what we need.
Considering that Mercury will be going retrograde soon and that the full moon trines Mars in Aquarius, reviewing and processing things could be good for us right now. An early start to assessing not just this last cycle but this past year for the untruths that we told others and our selves so that we can move forward bolstered by the words we speak and the stories we weave. Of course looking at the house that the full moon falls in in your chart can give you some personal insight into where to look first. Balancing our sun driven need to venture out broadly with our moon driven desire to speak on our emotions is key to making the best of these next two weeks. Completely doable so don’t fret y’all. We got this.
Well hello there good peoples. The full moon is upon us and everybody is focused on how big and beautiful it is. Here’s a quick video to remind y’all of the astrological energy behind that big, beautiful ball of reflected sunshine.
Words have meaning and stories are spells. Be careful of the ones you weave this upcoming full moon.
On November 25th at 5:44pm ET the full moon will be exact at 3° Gemini. The midway point of the Scorpio new moon cycle has a set up that I believe asks us to be really think about the information we take in and what needs to be tossed out. Gemini is a mutable air sign. Mutable modality shakes up and clears out the foundations that the fixed modality has shored up and built legacies upon. Air signs deal in the realm of communication and thought. Basically when you mix mutable and air you get thoughts and ideas that shake up and clear out our old ways of thinking. Gemini is that breathe of fresh air. Gemini sees old information in a new way because it weaves new stories with old information.
However, with this being a full moon that forms a tight opposition with the Sun, Mercury, and Saturn, we should be especially careful with how we choose to tell these new stories to others and ourselves. A square to Neptune brings this into tighter focus (lol). There is a goal and conscious thought to find truth imparted by the Sun and Mercury in Sagittarius. It seems like we are having a great time doing it as well. But Saturn in Sagittarius is calling into question what we believed to be truth in the first place. And unfortunately, moon in Gemini is not afraid to lie to fill in the gaps while Saturn in Sagittarius is perfectly fine with shouting you down if they are expressed negatively. The square of Neptune in Pisces to it all could have some lost in the sauce and feeling like a cosmic victim because of the story their emotions told them.
There’s a better way. A more balanced way. The search for truth can be balanced with an emotional knowing of how to frame it. Sagittarius sun looks for the big thread of truth that connects us all as Gemini moon fills the fine details of truth with an understanding that it is colored by our personal stories. Tell your tale and listen to the tales of others. Look for the common thread but don’t get bogged down trying to do so. Pay attention to the words you use when you talk to yourself and others.
Ask yourself these questions
~Do you speak with assurance and openness or with haughtiness and superficially?
~Are you telling the truth to yourself or hiding behind the same old stories?
~Are you getting all the information before coming to a conclusion or are you just relying in dogma to decide?
The rest of the this lunar cycle is about examining how we communicate with others but especially ourselves. Be ready to let go of unhealthy ways in which you speak to yourself and others. This is also a good time to learn detachment from other’s stories. Their outcomes and beliefs are their own and being so emotionally wrapped up in them we begin to take them on as our own to the detriment of our own truths. Travel is good idea with this full moon, whether near (Gemini) or far (Sagittarius). Either way, talking and general merry making should be on the agenda.
Of course all of this means just a small hill of beans compared to how these configurations actually line up with your personal planets in your birth chart. Definitely take the time to see which how the full moon is occurring in so you can think about what area of life you might want to readjust the story that you assign to it. If you have no idea how to do that or what I’m even talking about, send me a line and I’ll help.
Til next time good peoples.
I recorded a video to give my take on today’s full moon in Pisces. It would have been up earlier but YouTube.
If you want a quick take away (because I still don’t feel like a lot of typing) it’s this- emotion and logic both have their place in life. Sometimes you gotta feel it out first, then work it out next. Lead with heart but let your brain do the walking. Trust your intuition and hunches but don’t allow yourself to get carried away. Verify and refine.
Here ya go
This evening, we’re beginning to experience a Blue Moon. At 6:47am ET, the moon will be in Aquarius, opposite the sun in Leo. Also, every outer/group/global planet will either already be in retrograde motion or preparing to start. Add in Venus moving backward from Virgo into Leo and I think this is a good time for some me time. A critical eye turned towards how and where you interact with others and the world at large is an important step you should take before you start creatively paring back and trimming the fat.
Aquarius gives a detached bend to our emotional reactions, while we may consciously try to strive for what is best for self first. Pride needs to be examined either way because it is a sticking point with that Leo/Aquarius axis.
Is going forward from a place of detachment really the answer for where our plan for the next month or so should take us? Or should we be willing to get creative with self love and how we shine our light for the world to see?
It can happen. Umi said so.
I’ll keep this relatively short and sweet
Full moon (peak of short-term plans and emotional fulfillment) tonight in Capricorn (sign of cardinal earth- enterprising, respect driven, authoritative) at 10:20. Sun (consciousness and hero self) is opposite it in Cancer (sign of cardinal water- nurturing, domestic, emotionally driven) of course. The Moon forms a conjunction with retrograde Pluto (body of unearthing and rending for transformation) in Capricorn. Mars (body of ego and survival) sits near the Sun in Cancer.
- Do you continue to search for what emotionally gives you comfort or do you move towards what give you fulfillment on a practical level?
- How do you find balance between your traditional roles and new relationships that challenge you?
- Is the draw of changing public roles and fame more important than your drive to set down roots at home?
It’s a battle of the traditional mother and father. Who will win? The child who loves and opens themselves to the best of both figures
Full moon in Scorpio hits May 3rd at 11:42pm ET. Both the sun and moon will be square to Jupiter in Leo.
Full moon in Scorpio– Deep emotional attachment to hopes and dreams that you have been in the process of working on. Desire to go deeper while still holding on. Willingness to sacrifice for objectives is due to emotional connection to the end goal outweighing present circumstances.
Moon in Scorpio opposite Sun in Taurus- emotional need to connect may be at odds with conscious desire to acquire. Head and heart are at odds, mostly in areas of values and possessions. Unconscious issues with worthiness may drive us all. Find balance or get lost in the impasse.
Sun in Taurus square Jupiter in Leo– Our desire to evaluate the material and personal possessions and values we have may be spurred on optimistic pride. Things might seem better than they are and we may look to move forward with a false sense of security. Patience is needed to sort thru issues.
Moon in Scorpio square Jupiter in Leo– our emotional connection to the people and things we hold dear may be clouded by optimism. Our excitement over small gains may spur us to go to far. Giving too much without considering the long term consequences may inspire us to plot revenge later. Temper optimisim with realistic thinking to avoid overindulgence.
