Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Gemini | November 29th - 30th, 2020 - healing old wounds, awkward changes, opportunities to make smart (and lasting) decisions


"Taste as much of this as you can. Swallow what you need and spit out the rest." - Taizan Maezumi


On Monday, November 30, 2020 at 4:29AM EST the Gemini Moon will oppose the Sagittarius Sun giving us this month's Full Moon - a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Gemini.

Full Moons are times of culminations/illuminations. In Gemini this is about communication and learning, opinions and options. Gemini, ruled by fast-moving Mercury, is a sign of change; it holds the space of the crossroads.

Let's unpack the chart!

The Moon and Sun oppose from 8 degrees Gemini/Sagittarius. Happening on the Moon's nodes makes this one a lunar eclipse. Happening a bit far from the Nodes makes this a partial lunar eclipse.

During a Full Moon things come to light or to a conclusion.

Lunar Eclipse Full Moons are a bit different than regular Full Moons because the Moon is full but its light is blocked by the earth's shadow. So although things are still concluding and 'coming to light' other stuff is hidden, too. Nothing is exactly as it seems - plus we have Neptune squaring the Nodes now, adding to the confusion. At least he is direct by the time of this Full Moon!

Eclipses are cosmic course corrections. Things get eclipsed out or out of our way.  


We get a re-set.

With a Lunar Eclipse a woman (Moon) might leave or bring news of a change of direction or ending.


This will relate to our Gemini house theme and the collective themes of communication, information, writing, siblings, transportation, our tech hardware, our local neighborhood. With the Moon in Gemini and Gemini ruling the North Node of our collective way FORWARD - whatever is reaching a peak, coming into the light or ending will move us in a forward direction.


The Moon sextiles Chiron. The Sun inconjuncts Uranus and conjuncts asteroid Diana. Mercury (ruler of Gemini and so ruler of this lunation) is sextiling (opportunity) wise Pallas and stable Saturn. 


The Moon sextiles Chiron - this Full Moon is an opportunity for healing. Maybe a healing conversation has happened. Maybe information that has come to light helped us work through a painful issue/situation. Maybe a new option opens up and enables us to feel better able to take care of ourselves/be ourselves. Maybe something has ended. This aspect is separating so the conversation has already happened. The information has been delivered. The papers have been signed.


The Sun is inconjunct Uranus. Here's that awkward rock and a hard place. Happening just hours before the Full Moon. Sagittarius/Taurus. We saw something like this on Friday when the Moon (in Taurus then) inconjuncted the Sag Sun. By the time of the Full Moon, early Monday morning EST, this Sun/Uranus aspect is waning, too. The destabilizing 'surprise', that isn't totally a surprise because Uranus is retrograde, has in a way already happened. Change is needed, but we don't want to "jump" (unless we are pushed, of course), because change here is best accomplished in a more 'controlled' manner. This might not be up to us, but we can choose (the Gemini Moon) our response. Resist any impulsive urges to just bolt. We need freedom and we need to have the basics/our bases covered. 


(The Sun is also past his conjunction with asteroid Diana, but this is still within orb - I thought this was interesting since history's most famous Diana - Princess Diana 'the people's princess' is featured in so many popular shows right now. Her natal Saturn was 27 degrees Cappy, so she would have been having her second Saturn return just as all these specials were airing - her persona and chart continuing to work their magic long after her death.)

Mercury has moved through his sextiles to Pluto and Jupiter. At the time of the Full Moon he/she is exactly sextiling Pallas and applying to a sextile to Saturn. All in play NOW. 


Gemini's energy can be kind of all over the place/unfocused, but these opportunistic Cappy sextiles bring stability/strength/the ability to prioritize what is most important. Mercury's sextile to Pluto is waning - so maybe a power situation has been decided. The exact sextile to wise warrior Pallas speaks of facts/information now being integrated with practical/maybe traditional strategies. We can use what we know in a smart way. As Mercury reaches Saturn things get even more solidified. Here is a serious conversation/plan/reality check/commitment. 


The sextile to wise Pallas (in serious Cappy) says choices/decisions made now can be practical, stabilizing and long-lasting. Use context. Perspective. Your natural/earned/learned skills. Think about your needs/your goals. This isn't about right or wrong - this is about being smart. Decide what is personally wise and personally practical.

There is also a wide Finger of God/Yod formation with Venus at the apex. So, we've got the Moon, Chiron and Venus - this likely speaks of Full Moon events (that Gemini stuff - so information, conversations, contracts, etc) that are stimulated as we heal old ego woundings/knowing we can take care of ourselves/knowing we can be ourselves/be ok if we are alone/forgive ourselves, etc - impacting our Scorpio house through Venus - pulling in relationship/financial/self-esteem/women situations - whatever we are merging or purging.

I usually say to 'get out and walk in it' during Full Moons, but am still a little superstitious of Eclipses. We don't want to hide under our bed, but we don't need to go looking for trouble either. Stay safe/sane. Know that Gemini Full Moons, in general, can make us more mentally antsy/nervous/irritable and this one is a more powerful Eclipse. It also offers choices/options/important pivot points - keep this in mind, too.

xo all

Neptune stationed direct yesterday, squaring the North and South Nodes. This also speaks of a reality check that dissolves the past/illusion and supports our efforts (through tension/frustration - it's not a smooth process, but squares can be very effective) to creatively move forward.
