When the moon goes full in Mercury-ruled Gemini in near conjunction with Mercury going retrograde – all concentration goes toward our voice.
As the moon is waxing we begin to uncover the themes we will work with around the full moon, and here those themes are COMMUNICATION and TRUTH. During this time we’re combining the fiery idealism and truth seeking of Sagittarius with Gemini’s means to spread the good word. We thoroughly investigate the ideas, and effectively communicate our truth. We are curious, we investigate, we use our wits and logic. Fire and air are a beautiful combination and when you balance Sagittarius fire & Gemini air you learn to examine and communicate truth without taking things personally. Fire wears their hearts on their sleeve and air has the gift of observing ideas, feelings, and emotions objectively. Gemini takes an idea in, processes it without attachment and then assesses the truth of that idea. From this place they communicate those ideas outward. Gemini is a natural at initiating conversations, sharing ideas, creating positive communities and networks.
In the days leading up to the full moon we ground deeply into our power and today, in our support networks, in our relationships, with ourselves, we communicate from that place of inward power. If we’ve been holding onto feelings, if we’ve been experiencing blocks, if there have been words unspoken – they will begin to surface. We will use the power of this bright supermoon to push through those blocks, those things we’ve been taking the personally – and we will set them free. In this Gemini supermoon we will feel more room to grow, we will set boundaries, we will allow space for our personal freedom, for new ideas, and for new modes of being.
We also feel the need for a collective freedom – a freedom to information, to equally and fairly access and share ideas. With the conversation around net neutrality, these themes have come to the forefront.
It is important now more then ever to melt a hardened mind, to let go of attachment to old ideas, and to examine ideas for a new world with curiosity and zeal. Assess your truth and take time for that dialogue with yourself. Ask questions without an expectation for answers. With the moon squaring Neptune those answers may be foggy or hazy, still in the dream world, and our intuition may take a louder voice.
We have a tendency to bemoan Mercury retrograde, but Mercury retrograde is a fertile time for going inward. As Mercury rules communication – modes of communication, technology will break down as a cosmic way of urging (or almost forcing) us towards communicating with ourselves. It is a time to reexamine the ways we communicate, what is most effective, and what needs to change. In a system that relies fairly heavily on technology (and hilariously right around the holidays when communication, shopping, shipping, travel, and technology use are heightened) Mercury retrograde comes with frustration and challenges, as that outward expression of communication simply doesn’t always work. As difficult as it is, we can take this time for coming back to our breathing, examining our attachment to everything running smoothly 100% of the time, and being grateful for what we do have. If you are a Mercury ruled Virgo or Gemini (or Gemini/Virgo rising) you may find a bit of brain fog and your usual sharp perception and keen intellect may be a bit more scattered.
Redefine your message, channel your truth, act from your higher self and reach for the stars --- happy full moon !! Xx
