Monday’s Sagittarius full Moon is a partial lunar eclipse, with the Earth lining up between the Sun and the Moon so that the Earth block’s the Sun’s light from fully reaching the Moon. Since planets do have energetic connections, during a lunar eclipse the Earth cuts the energy between Sun and Moon, dissolving the energetic structures on Earth and within us. Lunar eclipses open a portal through which we can release old complexes, habits, ideas, beliefs and wounds that no longer serve our life. When the Earth moves out of orbit between them, new energetic lines snap into place. We can change what those connections are by how we change our own energies.
This is a great time to do ritual. Since for many of us the eclipse occurs during the early morning hours, you can do a ritual Sunday evening and create a psychic container to hold what needs releasing until the eclipse happens. If you ritualize this release, make sure you send what you’re releasing out to Pluto to regenerate, or down into the Earth to compost, or to the Sun to burn.
For this Gemini/Sagittarius full Moon eclipse, release old categories of perception, old prejudices and old dogmas. While the light of ego-consciousness is blocked during the eclipse, you might remember some beautiful dream or fantasy you loved as a kid, some belief in the grace and goodness of Spirit that you haven’t felt for a while. Why not take that image out of the closet and dust it off? Maybe it’s something you really wanted to believe in, but were told you couldn’t. Who says? Or perhaps you just lost faith. Why?
Who gets to say what’s real? Science is still debating that question so for now, open your mind and look at the unseen real aspects of life. Who says we’re not connected, or that we can’t do magic, or that we can’t trust Love? Who really believes that we are sinners if we don’t believe in the “correct” version of God? The Spirit of Life created us, so It probably wants us to find as many ways back to It as there are life-forms. The best way to worship Spirit is to live fully and creatively, kindly and compassionately, freely and openly.
The tension of opposites in Gemini/Sagittarius is one between reason and faith, intellect and intuition, the lower Mind and the Higher Mind. Gemini wants to articulate exactly what makes one thing different or similar to another. Gemini is the master communicator who can use language to open up people’s minds and hearts. Sagittarius is the ultimate believer, knowing right from wrong and piercing through to the truth of the matter, a trait which Gemini isn’t interested in. Gemini likes the play of the Mind while Sagittarius wants to focus the Mind on the goal.
