Gemini, known for the archetype of the Twins, is the first air sign we find in the zodiac. With youthful vigor, this sign is the Communicator. With the ‘gift of gab’, this mental sign will love to hang out at coffee shops or train stations engaging in ‘chit-chat’ as it goes about the world with curiosity. Ruled by Mercury, these fast data processors gather facts and information instinctually. With the rapid mind, the greatest function is to be an open channel for information to flow in and right back out, making room for new processing. “Keep it Moving”, there is no time to get stuck on anything as new information and curiosity abound.
With this influence, we may find new information filtering in for us. On Full Moon, emotions may run high as the Moon is in Full Bloom, however with so much air in the mix, we may lean towards logic rather than the emotions first. With stimulation from Uranus, we may have “flashes of insight” birthing today. Jupiter, the Planet that expands whatever it touches, will be also lending a hand to push for new details or thoughts on keeping things in balance. Completing the air trine is Mars in Aquarius that desires authenticity at all costs, recognizing we all have individual passions.
As with all Full Moons, it opposes the Sun. The Sun is sitting close to Saturn in Sagittarius. Contrasting to Gemini’s swift mind, Sagittarius wants to stay a little longer with the information it draws in, and find the meaning. Built to also keep rolling and not get stuck, the journey is the destination for Sagittarius. Experience is its greatest teacher and utilizing what it finds to actually form theories of understanding fuel the Sag’s flames. But still “Keep it Moving” applies, just keep contemplating and building a case for the reason of it all. With Saturn snuggling up to the Sun, it can bring a more serious tone to the adventure. Saturn wants to bring into form something from the days on the road, so we may be guided towards finding the master key. What key will unlock the door to the kingdom?
With Mercury in Capricorn approaching Pluto, we may see some of the shadows of our conditioned reality appear on the surface. Be open to breaking down that which no longer fits. Each day lately, it seems this fast- paced world is bringing new information to our consciousness. If it seems too much at times, just “keep moving” and asking for more insights, more understanding, more curiosity, to awaken the best path on our journey.
Stay warm and well as we approach our shortest days of the year until Solstice next week.
Photo: taken last night of the nearly Full Moon in the sky during 'blue hour'. While I do not like it when you cannot see the detail of the Moon in my photos, sometimes you need to step outside of expectation and allow for a new view. For once the bright light of the Moon is high enough, it is very difficult to get the foreground illuminated with such a bright subject. Departing from that rigidity can bring about unexpected beauty.
