GEMINI FULL MOON | December 11, 2019 to December 12, 2019 - reality bites, choices dissolve, seeing the facts, adjusting our thinking, serious commitments around love and money, change is coming

On 12/12 at 12/12 AM EST, the Gemini Moon opposes the Sagittarius Sun at 19 degrees giving us this month's Full Moon.

The Gemini/Sagittarius polarity is mutable. It's flexible, adaptable and thrives on change.

Mutable signs are restless and prepare us for the change of seasons. They are the breakdown and break away before the breakthrough.

Gemini is ruled by Mercury.

(who also rules Virgo - Mercury was the messenger of the Gods and the Messenger God)

and Mercury rules our collective third house of day to day communication and language. She/he also rules commerce, contracts, siblings, neighbors, local travel, early education, transportation - stuff that creates movement. Its polarity sign is Sagittarius, where our Sun (and Mercury herself) is, rules the ninth house of the larger world aspects of movement. So big picture thinking and processes, philosophy, higher education, foreigners, long distance travel, etc.

During a Full Moon we always have the Moon and Sun in their polar positions with the Earth in the middle (that's what creates the full moon), so the energy we are working with is the play between the two signs - in this case Gemini and Sagittarius.

Full Moons bring things to a peak, to a culmination, to light or to a conclusion.  

Let's unpack the chart!

The Sun/Moon are squaring Neptune (separating), the Moon is inconjunct Saturn (and Venus/Pluto, so hitting on next month's and next year's big energies), the Sun is sextile Saturn and conjunct Pallas.

Gemini is the sign of the twins and sometimes during peak Gemini energy we can find ourselves mired in two choices, doing things twice or again, seeing double, etc.

With the Sun and Moon moving off the dissolving square to Neptune - it could be these choices we have been mulling over or working our way through aren't grounded/real/based in reality. Maybe a sacrifice has been required. Maybe our "choices" weren't really choices at all. Neptune showed us this last week if we were paying attention. Our real choices narrow and the Full Moon tells us this is a GOOD THING.

With the Full Moon exactly inconjunct (rock and a hard place) Saturn, and Saturn, along with Pluto bookending an uncomfortable Venus (and keep in mind Venus is back where she was in February 2019, so something from that time could be wrapping up/activated) - this could be the part of our Saturn/Pluto story where the money is tight or our self-esteem is taking a hit or we aren't getting the support we need/want, etc

- some reality could be biting us in the ass.

Inconjuncts ask for adjustments. With the Moon in airy Gemini (finally some air at an important Moon!) - we are asked to adjust our thinking. To bring our minds back to reality with some situation. To make a decision, even at a time when decision-making isn't easy!

With Pallas (wisdom/strategy) conjunct the Sun - we are asked to be wise now. 

With Pallas opposing the illuminating Moon we are confronted with the facts.

With Venus squeezed between Saturn and Pluto and back where she was last February (the degree not the 'monkey in the middle' part) - I am kind of picturing her mediating a truce between these big, bad boys as she attempts to soften next month's Saturn/Pluto conjunction by showing us now that - what we want is limited.

If we have been living in lalaland - here is part one of the bills coming due.

If we have been working hard and adjusting to what life has tossed into our lane this past year - here is where we take stock of where we are and what we have and make another decision or here is where we are called to make a commitment.

Either way Venus starts a new cycle with both Saturn and Pluto now - so what we are doing RIGHT NOW around Venus themes (love, money, our values, beauty, women and self-esteem) is uber important because we are getting a fresh start. This is also about the themes of the houses Venus rules in your natal chart - your Taurus and Libra houses.

Take whatever you are starting now seriously. Take the decisions you are making seriously.

The Moon is connecting to both Saturn and Neptune.

Saturn represents discipline, time and rules - he reigns over the material world; the things that give life structure. Saturn tells Neptune to, "sit up straight, obey authority, get a job, to pull himself up by his bootstraps." Neptune rules the metaphysical world. He represents our dreams, our imagination, the things that give life meaning. He asks Saturn to feel, to have a heart, to show compassion, to understand that not everyone at every moment has bootstraps to pull up.

We all carry both these archetypes and they work out their energies and move their stories forward through us.

On their own neither of these big boys would give us a functioning world. They need each other. And individually we need to balance both these parts of ourselves. We need Saturn's structure to bring the dream to life and we need the dream (Neptune) to give our life meaning and purpose.

The ruler of this Full Moon is Mercury (ruler of Gemini). He/she has just finished up a two month journey through Pluto territory (Scorpio) and is now in Sagittarius - the sign of her debilitation.

Mercury is sextiling Jupiter and trining Chiron. So, confronting these facts/hard truths/whatever this is for us - actually creates opportunities for expansion and healing.

Maybe because we stop wasting time/energy and diluting our focus on the wrong things!

Communication/information is key now. Gemini rules youth and youth is a time of great flexibility and newness - it's time to bring in some fresh air. Don't over think this. This is a Full Moon - maybe something needs to end before we can fully get excited about the new stuff.

Mercury in Sag is answering to Jupiter and Jupiter trines Uranus in just four days (this is in play now) - we are moving toward BIG change and the decisions we are making now are important.

More about this in the next post as we finish out the monthly.
