This is a Gemini Full Moon! Not really all that emotional. It’s more like, intellectual and restless. This area of the sky is completely one sign off in western astrology. That means mostly all of you Gemini’s are really sun in Taurus and just about all Cancers are really sun in Gemini’s! This is just one example of how The 13 sign zodiac is a different and more accurate astrology.
Gemini, the twins are actually symbols of both sides of the mind, represented by Mercury, the messenger. Mercury has wings and can fly between the conscious world and the unconscious realm with ease. The outer world and the inner truth. He is the guide for the souls to the underworld. Mercury is mutable and changeable like the weather. Mercury gives you wings. Mercury is also holding the caduceus, the snake with wings. The medical symbol of healing and transformation. The reptilian brain. We use our minds to heal and regenerate our bodies through meditation and prayer. Our mind state determines our health. Gemini reminds us to stay flexible and open, to diversify our skills and communication abilities. And right now, it’s a lot easier to hear from the little voice inside. It’s also easier to contact our friends and family on the other side. Ask for help from your Angels. This is a time to have intense dialog with yourself and your spirit guides. They will answer you back. Strengthen your relationship with your own inner voice, faith and ancestors. Make the connection with those that are gone but not forgotten. Mercury will assist you. Pour libations and speak the names of your loved ones. They are still traveling with us on this journey, bringing us messages. Ask them if you need help now. Make the connection. Write your visions down. They may send it to you thru meditation, prayer or a dream.
Gemini is the electric nervous system. Your mind should be wide open and totally stimulated these next few days. Gemini helps us regain and sharpen our perspectives. The Full Moon is urging us to unlock this potential. Your mind should be turning faster now. You should be getting great ideas and opportunities. This is a very fortunate area of the sky! Near Sirius the Dog Star. Follow the trail. You should be learning and gaining new perspectives. It’s a great time to be social and at least reach out to people, especially old contacts and long lost friends. A lot of inner dialog today and light hearted restless energy. Deep breathing exercises are perfect for the occasion. Along with Mercury, working with the energies of Eshu Elegba, Anubis, and Medusa will prove beneficial at this time.
Mercury will be retrograding soon so get ready to delve deep into your own underworld! We are currently in the shadow of Mercury Retrograde! Use this Full Moon and fast approaching retrograde season as a way to have deeper communication with our ancestors through words, spells, chants, and libation ceremonies. This full moon calls for a balance of the divine Masculine and Feminine. The Right and Left Brain. Dark Matter and Shadows. The Underworld. Fertile Soil. Black was a symbol of fertility and rebirth to the ancient Egyptians. This full moon will be very therapeutic in facing our fears and mental blockages. Working with black stones for the next few weeks will be extremely beneficial. My favorites are Black Tourmaline, Onyx, Black Obsidian, and Snowflake Obsidian. Use them in meditation and next to you while you sleep. One of my New Year’s resolutions is to go deeper into the inner workings of the dreamworld and integrate hypnotherapy techniques. Something I already have a strong destiny with in my birth chart and that just keeps coming up. There’s no need to be afraid of the dark. Most of the universe is dark matter and has much to teach us.
