Full Moon in Gemini ~ December 2, 2009

Full Moon. Image source unknown.Celestial excitement continues as December enters its second day. The Moon waxes and becomes full in Gemini (11 degrees) at 2:30 a.m. (EST) on December 2. Just the day before, Venus entered Sagittarius and Uranus changed directions.

The Gemini-Moon, opposite the Sagittarius-Sun, now urges us to expand our mind and think big, truly communicate by listening as well as talking, and rid our interactions of metaphorical "ceilings" with discussions without preconceived notions or imposed limitations by having expectations, especially with our siblings.

On the day the Full Moon in Gemini occurs, Saturn and Pluto remain tightly connected in a square, while Mercury (the planet governing the sign Gemini) links himself harmoniously with the auspicious Triple Conjunction. As the reality of our situations (Saturn) are forced upon us (square), we unavoidably delve into our own (Pluto) in hopes to find a way out, a solution, an answer, or to muster up the courage to ask for help. With the expansiveness of our mind and thinking outside the box (Full Moon in Gemini and Mercury's alignment to Triple Conjunction), we might just receive the answer we are seeking. But the answer may not come in the package expected. What happens then?

With Saturn and Pluto in the background, what we must do or have to choose may not be what we want to do or choose. Do we then become our own obstacle because we've limited ourselves to solutions that are acceptable to what we desire or what we can logically understand? I challenge each of us, including myself, to bravely act upon what must be done regardless of how difficult it might be. With the Mercury and the Triple Conjunction extending their assistance, we're able to devise a plan on how to make what must be done, happen. Perhaps, the Tarot Affirmation* on the Four of Pentacles - Attachments and Restrictions might help open the mind and welcome new ways of thinking/communicating.

For me, this Full Moon is harmoniously aligned with my Venus (relationships), Chiron (healing), and Moon (heart); and as a Virgo-rising, falls in my natal 9th house while as a Cancer-Sun, in my solar 12th house. It's fitting since I'll be traveling (9th house) to get some much needed chill time (12th house) with my family and life-long friends for three weeks in December! This holiday season marks the first occasion we'll have it without my father, who passed in January. However, we do have a new addition to the family and will celebrate the season with my newly born Libra-niece. Sadness mixed in with joy. Grief blended with healing. As a family and as individuals, we must grieve our own way and heal our own way. Together, however, we have each other's strength and support in sadness and in joy.

This Gemini-Full Moon is the first of two full moons this month. On December 31st, the Blue Moon is a Lunar Eclipse in her home sign, Cancer, and is linked to the Cancer-Capricorn eclipses in July. What an exciting way to ring in the new year! Stay tuned for a post on this eclipsed moon.
