The Full Moon in Gemini on November 23, 2018 is a dawning. It is natural law that darkness gives birth to light, and light spills over the horizon.
Astrologically speaking, November has been a pivotal month of change. Many planets and the lunar nodes of fate changed signs or shifted direction.
During the last New Moon, we completed a 13-month cycle of Jupiter moving through Scorpio. After trekking through deep realms of transformation, death, and the unknown, there is a rising. We are called to grow, to expand beyond what we think we know, into landscapes of exploration.
We are invited to journey on – to leave behind the compost of a year and embrace the next chapter of our Quest.
‘Quest’ is the root of Question. To ask, to seek, to inquire – is to embark on a journey. To take a trip into different ways of seeing, being, and believing.
What questions are you asking? What journeys are you inviting and embarking on? What worlds are waiting to be birthed from the letting-gos, the deaths and transformations of the last year?
What do you need to believe in to go down this road? Where do you place your faith? What wide visions pull you onward?
Gemini is the sign of communication and learning. This moon re-minds us of multidimentional awareness. That thought and opinion span a spectrum, and there are multiple realities and ways of interfacing with life. This moon asks us to be mobile, tactile, and adaptable between mental constructs. It offers that learning arises from a process of loss and subsequent discovery. That the process of personal diminishment is a partner to spiritual expansion.
This moon asks us to seek ways our worlds can open, open, open.
Openness takes curiosity and a certain amount of surrender. Move beyond opinion. Assume that you aren’t right, that you do not know, and you are looking to understand.
Acquiring understanding can put us in touch with Truth. Connecting with truth often requires loss.
Loss of innocence, loss of naivety, loss of self-righteousness, greed, and moral ambiguity. Open to the ongoing discovery that many of your questions can never be fully answered. Your wings will grow.
On this Full Moon, highlighting Jupiter entering Sagittarius, notice the probabilities and the possibilities. It can feel like a lot. Like too much. Like overwhelm. We must open our perception to find our way. Expand our capacities. In a climate of increasing uncertainty, we are finding our way.
Sagittarius the archer holds the bow and arrow. Standing firm in probability and reaching high and wide into the realm of possibility. Keen sight and vast perception are required. A distant focal point begs to be reached.
What are you focusing on?
This focal point arises from spiritual truth, what we believe in and look to for guidance.
What are you guided by?
What we reach towards because we are spiritually and morally and ethically compelled. This focal point, in essence, is freedom. Synthesis. Convergence. Sagittarius increases the tension between polarities. Pulls back the bow until all is aquiver and there are no guarantees where this arrow will land. This extension, this quivering, this dissonance between 2 sides will snap back,
Becoming art: the bringing together of extreme opposites.
The birth of worlds yet unseen.
Everything that exists was first a concept. We live in a materialization of a collection of ideas. Consider this a great re-visioning. Our lives, this world, can be re-drawn, re-dreamed, re-made in the image of compassion and what we hold most dear.
Mercury is retrograde on this moon, asking us to reconsider where we draw meaning. Use this as a time to wonder, to dream, and to confront any illusions your belief systems have made you fall victim to. Keep watch for misinformation and unrealistic ideas. Is it spiritual infusion or reckless confusion? Wait until your mind clears.
At the same time, fortify what you truly have faith in. Locate the hopes your spirit holds. Tune into optimism and speak to what could be made of this world. Pray into it, and fortify the chance of experiencing those miracles.
This is a Moon to dream of, and take action in support of, Freedom. The next couple of years will see a deep process of overcoming obstacles and outworn structures to that end. For now, set your sights. Prepare your visions in the realm of possibility. Spread the word and speak your truth. Bring your knowledge, and be willing to know nothing – continuously learning and synthesizing myriads truths.
By the end of November, our relationships, resources, and finances will again go through evolutionary change. Instability invites adaptation and ingenuity. Resource-sharing within community is indicated. Put your money where your faith is; and make wise investments towards the leading edge. Develop a culture of nurturance, care, and protection.
Embrace the good fortune of evolving towards new heights. It is befuddling, it is astounding, it is what we are here for.
