Full Moon in Gemini
December 6.2014
7:27am (EST)

Sun in Sagittarius

The Moon waxes Full tomorrow morning at 7:27am (EST) in the astrological sign of Gemini (Mutable Air). The opposition of astrological energy that naturally occurs during a Full Moon phase is the tug of war between what appear to be opposing energies. In this lunation that thought is best expressed as the “party line” or shared phone line where two conversations are vying for attention at once. Each is communicating in their own unique style, but the bits and pieces of detail are lost in the gaps between who is listening to who. The strength of Solar energy is mid-point in dynamic Sagittarius; expansive in its outreach and continually seeking new trails to blaze. Now, the cooling waters of Mother Moon are ready to talk it up and stimulate the mind as She finds her voice in communicative Gemini.

The quality of Mutable Air as catalyst in stirring up the emotional seas and the Fires of expansive Sagittarius seeking to spread out and claim their own path of networking and communication can produce a highly emotive and combustible effect. Whenever Mind comes on line, particularly the Gemini mind that can change direction as easily as a chameleon adapts to its surrounding’s color we have a potential for emotions being expressed that were fleeting and pertinent in the moment but dissipate as soon as rationale enters the picture. Add to this the Solar expression of Sagittarius, that seeks and seeks and seeks to find suitable burning ground and you have the dynamics for kindling sparks of idea, fueled by a desirous heart that may overextend and burn out before any real progress is made. Using the analogy of a phone call, imagine several lines of connection that get tangled in the transmission causing miscommunication to ensue with neither party reaching the intended recipient.

Please Hang Up and Try Again…..

The solution lies in the effort of trying. For each and every bright area that courses through the night sky of fully lit waters, just breathe and allow it to move of its own accord and land where it may. Although intent is the key ingredient in successful magickal work, so is knowing when to simply allow the desires to flow and let them blaze their own paths of connection. This also means standing firmly in a place of trust, that all will be communicated in the way that it should.

From a perspective of elemental correlate, we have the opposition of Sun in Sagittarius or Fire of Fire and Moon in Gemini- Air of Water. Water is the natural opponent of Fire as it extinguishes and heals what has been burnt. Air both feeds and extinguishes Fire; one setting the blaze higher and the other by its blustery gust creates lights out. So how do we use this info? My favorite analogy and one that I apply frequently to this particular astrological set-up is setting an exposed wire (Fire) in a pan of water (Water) and Electricity (Air and communication) sparks and sputters creating light.

This is an excellent Full Moon configuration for creating new pathways of thought pattern and using the emotional to guide the current of electrified charge that runs through it. Brainstorming and then passing these ideas through the filter of how they “feel” and what desires to bring them to life (Light) get fired up can go a long way towards reaching out a little further beyond what your normal selective process would be.

So plug in, and let those calls flow from mind to heart. Be receptive to what is communicated and then continue to leave that line open as you move through the waning of the Moon. What is viable and a stable and reliable connection will establish itself as that which is frequently called for insight and clarity. You may get a few busy signals as you tap into the greater network of other’s similar seekings, but keep the line open and try again.   With persistence you will soon have all of the circuit board lit up, effectively networking and beginning new ways of dialing in.

Full Moon in Sagittarius-Ready, Aim, Shoot!

Full Moon in Sagittarius
6.13.2014
12:11 am (EDT)

Sun in Gemini

The Moon waxes full early tomorrow morning (12:11am EDT) in the astrological sign of Sagittarius. The Full outpouring of moonlight punctuates the fiery nature of Sagittarius and its dynamic of reaching outward expansively and intentionally. As with every Full Moon the astrological sign of placement is that which lay directly in opposition to the placement of the Solar Month on the zodiacal wheel. We have been exploring the energy of the solar month and Gemini’s very stylized and expressive method of communication. Sagittarius also is a master of communication with its style being one of gathering everyone together, establishing community and then letting the natural rhythm of communal dialogue run its course. There is an underlying goal of expanding horizons while remaining within a specific comfort zone. The point of tension between these two styles produces the potential for the sharing and distribution of community based communication that reaches a much larger audience and has enough momentum (Gemini is the movement of air and Sagittarius the spark of flame that rises higher with air’s fueling).

Both Gemini and Sagittarius are of the mutable modality; meaning each has the a natural predisposition towards expansion, flexibility and being able to extend beyond the norm as long as rigidity does not set in. Sagittarius as a Fire sign heats those full and ripe waters of the lunar tides. Using this energy in conjunction with the cooling air of Solar Gemini keeps those waters moving and flowing never reaching the boiling point that would evaporate what efforts had been made. It is a sign of action. Sagittarius not only walks the path but blazes the trail and lights the way as it moves through new experiences.

The symbol associated with Sagittarius is that of the archer. The overwhelming energy of Fire is that of transformation through change. Typified by the Archer, this is the fire that sends its sparks out in many directions with the aspirations that one or two will energize, take root and ultimately become the bonfires that quicken and transform. Sagittarius is the ninth sign of the Zodiac and as such the action of this energy initializes and catalyzes the will to action.

The ruling planet of Sagittarius is Jupiter. This planet as no other naturally causes expansion, whether it is desired or not. Prosperity and abundance are common themes of this planetary energy and it is this dynamic that ensures that the fiery arrows of distribution released from the bow of Sagittarius are propelled far and wide before touching down. Making use of this expansive energy is as simple as filling the lungs and then sighing into the release.

Energetically, this Full Moon is ripe for workings that are directed towards bolstering the will (Fires of Sagittarius) within the creative waters (Moon) that spur you on towards your desired goals. This is the basic premise of successful working. Being emotionally engaged in what is desired is not enough. Those emotions need to be fired up enough to encourage will full action towards the goal. As the old adage goes- “wishing won’t make it happen”. Add the strength of the Solar Month and the inventive mind of Gemini and all are working towards manifestation and realization of what is most desired.

Additionally, we have some other astrological refinements that make this Full Moon one that could really become the pivotal point where change can begin. Neptune stationed retrograde a few days ago so the focus is on the deep waters that hold the mystery of our emotional nature. This supports the fullness of the Moon in a way that allows for some retrieving of those subconscious past memories that have informed your present state; bringing up for closer look and then applying the healing that may be needed.

Mercury also stationed retrograde a few days ago as well. The focus is on hypersensitivity to what is being communicated and making sure that there is no misunderstanding. Have this pause as the archer is gearing up to shoot the arrows of networking and communal effort gives that extra point of re-sighting so the arrows hit the intended mark and don’t go astray.

Tomorrow as I sit in the energy of the Full Moon, I will reflect on where I want to actively fire (Sagittarius) up my intentions. I will let this thought (Gemini) settle into my sacred waters of feeling and intuition (Moon). I will breathe deeply and submerge myself a little more deeply (Neptune) into what I truly feel about this intention. I will make declaration in witness (Sun) of my guides and guardians of my desired goal. As inquisitive mind gives pause (Mercury) and my will to action expands, I rise from these waters of inspiration, bow at the ready , aim my arrow of intent and with the passion of one who has seen a new trail to blaze will release and shoot (Sagittarius) for the heavens. This, my Full Moon intent blessed by the Mother and affirmed by Father Sun’s golden eye.
