Sun, Mercury, Venus, and True Node in Gemini
If you were looking for the opportunity to talk about yourself, now is the time! This lunar eclipse we are finally coming fully back to ourselves. We have defined our boundaries, released, refined, nurtured, and created. Now it’s time to share who we are. Whether this is an updated version of yourself or a reintroduction just in case folks forgot who exactly YOU ARE, take the time this full moon to fully express yourself. This will also assist in leading you towards what you are here to accomplish in this life. It’s ok to be a bit all over the place. Gemini is our mixer of the zodiac signs. From their position they can take in and release data on a grand scale that many of us cannot even begin to understand.
Moon in Sagittarius
There is a lot going on this full moon. Sagittarian moons are very in touch with their instincts. They use their connection to their inner drives to determine where they put their emotional energy. This means they can be pretty temperamental, much like mutable signs often are. This energy impacts us in a similar way. You may find yourself cycling through many emotions throughout the day. For folks that are not use to this type of energy this may be a bit disconcerting, particularly for fixed moon signs.
The best advice is to go with the flow. Sagittarius is always on the lookout for the next adventure or experience. They see this as a learning opportunity. An opportunity to expand their world view and grow. During the Gemini new moon we were called to get in touch with how our bodies communicate with us. This full moon, now we are taking this to a different level. Where Gemini takes a mental stance towards understanding their world, Sagittarius takes an active role. Gemini talks, reads, watches, and listens. Sagittarius moves their body into these spaces. They are dancing, walking, moving their arms, rocking side to side. They engage with gathering information about their world by interacting with it. Gemini might read or watch a film about another culture that they are interested in, Sagittarius will hop on a flight or visit a festival to experience this culture.
Our relationships have been going through some changes. We have sun in Gemini in opposition to the Moon in Sagittarius. We want to explore who we are and express this in some way. We want the freedom to let our mind roam to whatever topic or subjects catch our interest. Sagittarius is all for this. They want to be free as well. This can have some interesting impacts on our relationships particularly if you are more of a vanilla individual. This may be the time when you try some of the physical activities that you have always been interested in. This could be sports, exercise, arts, hobbies, and sexual. Be open, check in with yourself and whoever you are in relationship with. Only do what you are comfortable with and if you need to lean into the Gemini side – do lots of research.
If you find yourself in a situation where your partner or the experience is leaning into an area that you are uncomfortable with, Gemini is here to help again. Say something and speak up! Be prepared to set and stick to your hard boundaries. You may also find there may be some shifty things going on. Sagittarius is not always up front about their activities. They may not want to feel that they are asking for permission or feeling like they are restricted. Everyone is capable of being dishonest. So if you find yourself wanting to be a bit sneaky or if your partner is found to be dishonest about their actions, take a note from our next planet and sign in Cancer, know how you best protect and nurture yourself. Then do what you need to support a safe environment for yourself and your loved ones.
Mars in Cancer
A season of connecting to our passions and emotional foundation. This full moon is all about communication. We delved a bit into some of the situations that may occur this full moon which could trigger this Mars in Cancer energy. We also have Mars in Cancer trine Neptune in Pisces and in Opposition to Pluto in Capricorn.
The trine brings two water signs into conversation with each other and they are THRIVING. Cancer truly feels seen and understood in the expansive emotional nature of Pisces. Cancer concerns our personal, family, societal feelings while Pisces is our emotional relationship between ourselves and our creator. Thus, when we feel emotionally taxed this full moon, we will happily turn towards our spiritual practices for guidance and support. This is the ultimate form of family. Spiritual and universal family.
On the other hand, Cancer and Capricorn oppose each other on the zodiac wheel. Cancer is Cardinal Water, while Capricorn is Cardinal Earth. Cancer births our next stage of life guided by our emotional connections to the world around us. Capricorn is the turning point where we turn our inward emotional drive to an external physical manifestation. Mars in Cancer wants to address all emotional encounters that happen. There are no slights or shade that goes unnoticed, particularly if it even suggests there may be harm to what we hold dear. Pluto in Capricorn though is refining the institutions that educate us. It highlights that there are macro level factors in our environment which influence our perceptions of our family, our home, our ancestors and what this means to us. These macro level factors (school, religion, community) condition our expectations and how we react to these topics. Capricorn understands that we sometimes have to sacrifice to get what we want. We have to be dedicated to the outcome no matter it takes to get there. Cancer understands that sacrifice means nothing without connection to the world around us. Otherwise, what is the point?
You may find yourself feeling a lot of feelings associated with anger. Anger at what you experienced growing up. Anger at what your current life experience is. Anger at what you are told you are supposed to be, do, or want from the world. You may also feel the other edge of anger, great passion and desire. Desire to connect, create, refine, change the institutions, build and grow. These two go hand in hand and we can find ourselves shifting from one to the other this full moon. Go with the flow. Give yourself space. Have healthy coping mechanisms and seek professional psychological help if you find yourself feeling overwhelmed.
Jupiter and Neptune in Pisces
Jupiter in Pisces trine Mercury and Venus in Gemini
Our expanding understanding of our connection with the divine is assisted by our curiosity and desire for intellectually stimulating connections. This is also highlighted in our great work and what we are known for contributing to society.
Jupiter in Pisces square Sun in Gemini and Moon in Sag
This aspect takes our expanding understanding of our connection with the divine, but here our self-expression and emotional desire to be free to have new experiences are not quite jelling. Gemini and Sagittarius as we have discussed want to learn and explore. While Jupiter is all for this, Pisces would rather use a creative route or spiritual practice to gain this information. The deluge of data from Gemini and Sagittarius just following every emotional instinct that feels overwhelming to Pisces. This may lead us to delving into the Piscean habits that allow for us to disassociate to take a break from Gemini and Sagittarius. Jupiter will help here because this planet WANTS to have these experiences. Jupiter wants to roam free with Sagittarius. Jupiter wants to spend days pouring over personality and occupational tests.
We just have to get these three signs to work together and guess how we do that? We call in the one mutable sign we are missing- Virgo. Virgo will create order out of the chaos. If there’s one thing we can depend on Virgo for, it is to shift through all of the data that we find and identify what is and is not worth our time. This means make lists, organize what you find, create a system that works for you. Reach out to folks who are very organized and see how they do it. This is how we successfully navigate this time.
Neptune in Pisces square Mercury and Venus in Gemini
We are back again working with Mercury and Venus in Gemini. This time though Neptune in Pisces squares this energy. That’s right we’ve got more friction between our mutable pal signs. Here, we take how our souls connect conflicting with our intellectually stimulating desires for communication and relationships. Again, let’s help these two energies to work together. We may find ourselves seeking practices which allow us to quiet the running narrative of Gemini or we may need to adjust our practices to support our racing thoughts, interests and relationships. Neptune in Pisces will be the key to integrating the information that we discover this Gemini season into our lifestyles and rituals. Neptune is going to hold up their hand to all of the Gemini chatter and whisper for them to show them what moves their spirit the most. That will be what is kept in the long run and also narrows the overflow of data that Gemini usually gets lost in, helping us all out in the end.
Saturn Retrograde in Aquarius in the 10th house
Retrograde season is upon us! Saturn appears to moving backwards through the astrological zodiac sign Aquarius. This means we are cutting embracing and cutting loose all the communities, acts of service, hopes and fears that we have around our great work. Check out the planets and the sign that rules your 10th house to see where this will impact you specifically.
Saturn in Aquarius trines the Sun and Venus in Gemini meaning that our self-development and connections are helping us with this Saturn energy. We are curious about what we are doing and why. We have lots of questions and will not stop until we get the answers. For some this will mean they find that the groups they are aligned with are not ones that support achieving their great work. They may also find that they want to do, give, and connect more with their communities. There is quite a bit of good that will come from these aspects.
Pluto Retrograde in Capricorn
Lastly, we have Pluto retrograde in Capricorn. I’ve covered a bit of this, but I would like to finish by asserting how Pluto has been drastically revealing the ways in which our societies obsession with hard work, sacrifice, and discipline has helped and hurt us. As more is brought to light in this area, more will be deemed as unnecessary and discarded.
