Full Moon in Gemini: Seeking A Balanced Perspective
We are having Full Moon in Gemini on November 25th and 26th.
Full Moons are the peak of the Moon cycle, when the Moon is completely filled with light and marks the beginning of the following 2 week period when the light starts fading. This is known as the waning phase and represents a time of release. Full Moons are generally the most intense and lively time of the Moon cycle.
The astrological themes for each one can start to be felt in the week leading up to it.
The events and circumstances that occur in our lives on the exact day usually challenge us.
The Sun (Ego needs) and Moon (Emotional needs) are opposite each other, therefore whatever signs they are in will most strongly influence the themes. Just like the New Moon, you can also have intentions for the Full Moon, with the difference being that for this phase your intentions should be associated with some sort of release or need for change. If you have been feeling that there is something to let go of, then use this period for the most powerful effect. You can also use Full Moons to begin a cleanse or detox. (Read more about intentions and detoxing at the bottom of the article.) Sometimes the events and circumstances that happen to us around the Full Moon will create an awareness within ourselves that we need to change or let go of something. However, this is not always the case. Some Full Moon circumstances might just help you bring something to your awareness to help you make better choices. Full Moons are a time where you can feel challenged by the energy of two opposite signs. In this case it is the polarity of Sagittarius and Gemini. Gemini is an Air sign, commonly associated with communicating and information sharing. It is an intellectual sign and loves information from multiple sources, the ultimate student. Sagittarius is a fire sign ruled by Jupiter. It wants to explore, seek truth, teach, and expand in perspective and experience through travel or spiritual experiences. While Sagittarius is more intuitive and ‘big picture’ oriented, it can avoid looking at the details and facts, which ultimately can result in an imbalanced and incomplete perspective. As mentioned above, Gemini is the opposite and therefore it could also get too caught up in the details and have a hard time with ‘connecting the dots.’ Therefore, during this Full Moon period we are experiencing this polarity being played out. It is both a dance and a tug of war between the ‘facts’ and ‘higher perspectives.’ Mercury is the ruler of Gemini, and is also in Sagittarius conjunct the Sun and Saturn. Traditionally this is considered to be a ‘challenged’ Mercury because it is located opposite the sign that it rules and also close to the Sun in the Zodiac, which is known as ‘combustion.’ Mercury here is being forced to look at the ‘big picture’ under the guidance of the Sun and the restructuring energy of Saturn. Saturn moved in and out of Sagittarius this past year, and has moved in there for good as of September 17th. This indicates that over the next few years as a collective we are experiencing a restructuring of our perspectives, philosophies, beliefs, and goals. During this Full Moon it is being played out on some level, however, because Saturn is close to the Sun, the stability and solidity of Saturn are not being expressed fully, especially with the Sun in the unrestrictive sign of Sagittarius. Neptune being heavily involved in this Full Moon in a tough way can bring a lot of confusion. Some people may even feel like escaping it all and avoiding everything altogether.
The best way to utilize this is by ‘escaping’ in a productive way, such as meditation or any other spiritual modality or tool that helps you to think more clearly. In some cases, the events, circumstances, and realizations that occur during this Full Moon could have something to do with taking a look at what we have been avoiding. Mars is trine Libra, and at best it is helpful for us to be assertive in a way that considers different sides. It is in a sign that is hesitant about taking action otherwise, and as a result it can take a long time to act. If there is anything that you feel you need to release from your life, make that intention sometime after the first 24 hours after the exact Full Moon. (Click here to see for your time zone). This is a good time to take a look at where you have been imbalanced in your perspectives to help you take action in a way that is more considerate of all the variables, options, and/or relationships. Perhaps you have been avoiding something that now requires more serious attention. This is a good time to reflect as much as you can, in a way that is well rounded. During Full Moons and throughout the following week, it is a good time to start (or take action towards starting) a cleanse or detox. Gemini rules the lungs, therefore it would be best to take products and do activities that help to detoxify them. Holy Basil, also known as Tulsi, is an excellent herb for this but there are many other products as well. — For more information on getting a personalized reading with astrologer Carmen Di Luccio, visit his services page here.
