The brightest night of the month is here once more! Full Moons bring energies of completion and culmination, and oftentimes, flashes of emotional insights that were previously overlooked. Emotions are heightened, and feelings may run amok with this particular lunation, so fasten your emotional seatbelts!
This month’s FULL MOON happens in 16°301′ of the Mutable Air sign, GEMINI, the sign of the TWINS.
GEMINI (The Twins)
Of all the signs in the zodiac, Gemini is arguably the sign that values communication the most; it is an entity with a built-in companion, ensuring the smooth cycle of learning, sharing information, listening to feedback, and eventually learning again, in an incessant feedback loop that gives it the highest sense of excitement and meaning. It is represented by the twins, after all, a union perpetually connected, first within the womb, and eventually via the thoughts and words that seamlessly move between them. Constant information exchange fosters a strong, formidable bond, where Gemini is concerned. The hunger for details is insatiable, as Gemini represents the never-ending collection and sharing of data, words and thoughts, trivia, general information, done by an entity with 2 brains: double the motion, double the thought process, double the speed.
FULL MOON in GEMINI
This Full Moon is exactly conjunct a retrograde Mars in the midpoint of its current retrograde cycle. Feelings are tested for the next couple of days, repressed emotions and/or feelings that you thought you’ve successfully suppressed, may now reach its boiling point, demanding not just acknowledgement and validation, but also forceful expression.
Chaotic feelings of urgency are likely to surface, and the tendency to rush everything may overpower rationale. There may be a heightened need to gather data whether or not it is data you are entitled to. You may also feel the need to insist or force communication just to satiate curiosity even if the other person is not ready to share. It is important to try and curtail these tendencies, but doing so may be very challenging. With the Full Moon infused with Mars retrograde energy, keeping focused on a task may require extra effort too, as distractions are likely to be potent for next couple of days. Tasks that are usually accomplished quickly may drag on and on, and may even be abandoned for something more (or less) stimulating.
Neptune, the planet of creativity and confusion, is also configured strongly with this lunation. The tendency to react aggressively to unsubstantiated hearsay is prominent, and embarrassment or regret may be overwhelming once you realize that what you are angry about proves to be nothing more than “fake news”. Due diligence is very important, to prevent unnecessary emotional entanglements. Let this energy pass, because it will, just as everything does. Its best to disengage and observe for now. Breathe in and out, and focus on small steps that you can accomplish easily. Be vigilant, dear reader! It is easy to be reactive, and much easier to succumb to victim mentality; offense is actively caught, even if its just floating aimlessly!
