Occurring on Wednesday 2nd December, the Gemini full Moon has the Sabian Symbol of Gemini 11: Newly Opened Lands Offer the Pioneer New Opportunities for Experience. This speaks of getting off the beaten track and trying something new, being prepared to strike out for new territory, finding new and better ways of living, the need to start a new, more vibrant life, heading for the Promised Lands, new time zones, foreign customs and languages and generally leaving one's comfort zone.
The Cautions for this degree are: Clinging to the old and familiar when it is outworn and boring, restricting growth and change, not moving on, invading other's space, claiming what's rightfully someone else's, hanging on when it's time to let go, running off to avoid involvement or responsibilities.
The Karmic Condition (the degree before) of the full Moon is Gemini 10: An Airplane Dives Toward the Earth as Though Falling. This speaks of picking yourself up after going into a nose dive, losing control or feeling like your life is going nowhere (or to hell in a hand basket). This degree urges us to take back the controls, to be strong, self directed and self focused in order to have smooth sailing and progress in our lives. With the degree in operation right before the full Moon, we may be compelled to notice where we're working at cross purposes in our life - where we sabotage ourselves or go against gravity in some way. Of course, the nosedive that this degree speaks about can be a desire for drama, acting out, danger and generally taking on life in a risky manner. The trick is to transcend these types of feelings and take a chance in new territory; to be a pioneer, to push your boundaries, to strive to break out of constraints.
The Sabian Symbol for the Sun at this full Moon is Sagittarius 11: In the Left Section of an Archaic Temple, a Lamp Burns in a Container Shaped Like a Human Body. This speaks of connecting mind, body and spirit, connecting the left and right sides, yoga, metabolic rates, treating your body as a temple, light workers, the acceptance of the body and its functions, oil burners, gas lamps, Aladdin's Lamp. This speaks of watching the body's needs, desires and functions. Burning a candle at both ends can lead to poor functioning of the nervous system, the heart and the adrenals which can leave us feeling depleted and worn out. Doing whatever it takes to ground yourself in your physical body can bring wonderful results now, but it seems that, especially with this full Moon, one must strive for balance as this is the key now.
Mercury, the planetary ruler of the Gemini full Moon, is on Sagittarius 25: A Chubby Little Rich Boy Rides Upon a Hobbyhorse. This degree, combined with the degree of the Sun, seems to reinforce the need to connect with the physical body, perhaps one's sexual needs. Further, this Hobbyhorse degree urges us to do what gives us joy, what turns us on, to indulge in hobbies or pastimes or meaningful play. Mercury is right at the end of this degree and will soon move onto Sagittarius 26: A Flag Bearer in a Battle, which speaks of having the courage of your convictions, standing up for ideals, representing one's collective in a worthy cause, carrying the standard or the "Flag", David and Goliath, being the messenger, advocates, leadership, self sacrifice (especially for a cause).
Venus is on Sagittarius 1: Retired Army Veterans Gather to Reawaken Old Memories. This speaks of reunions and gathering together with old friends (and new, perhaps from past lives?), understanding the individual's needs and idealistic struggles, moratoriums and calls for peace, bringing up painful memories in the hope of sharing understanding and healing, tears of the past, being confronted by memories, talking over strategies, finding comrades, brothers and sisters.
Mars is slowing right down and about to go retrograde. It will spend considerable time on Leo 18: A Chemist Conducts An Experiment For His Students. This speaks of alchemy, stepping out of the usual rules and taking a risk, new and untried procedures, wisdom being passed on, putting things to the test, throwing out what doesn't stand up, ingredients, Bunsen burners, test tubes, microscopes, being a mad professor, science and chemistry. This begs the question - what changes, what shifts, what experiments can you employ in your life to move your life forward? What risks are you prepared to take?
Chiron and Jupiter are on Aquarius 22: A Rug Placed on the Floor For Children to Play On. This asks the questions; how secure do you feel? are your needs for comfort and care provided? do you have somewhere comfortable and safe to live, play, love and grow? Are you and others in a safe, secure, happy place or are you looking for this in your life?
Uranus is stationary direct now; it's moving very slowly. It's on Pisces 23: A Materializing Medium Giving a Seance. This speaks of spiritual channeling, picking up on the vibrations in the air around you, giving voice to spirit, materializing things, clairvoyance and clairsentience. With Uranus on this degree, people can be exquisitely sensitive to what's going on around them. This can be good or bad, depending on what's coming through. There can be a need to protect yourself from dark or difficult forces or energies, but, in general, this can show one's clairvoyant sensitivities picking up and being strengthened.
The urge to express yourself, to give birth to your creative and spiritual ideals and products is shown by Pluto on Capricorn 3: The Human Soul, In It's Eagerness For New Experiences, Seeks Embodiment. This is the 'Jesus degree' - which means that the Sun is on this degree at Christmas. It speaks of inner motivation leading to expansion, being born again, manifesting one's desires, feeling like a changed person, the need to drop into the body, religious and spiritual rebirth, reincarnation, the urge to create, writers and writing.
Last, but not least, I don't want to leave Saturn out. Saturn is square Pluto. It's on Libra 4: A Group of Young People Sit in Spiritual Communion Around a Campfire. This shows the need, the necessity, of being with those of like mind... to not feel lonely, left out or that one doesn't have friends or a community. Something needs to "inspirit" the individuals and the group. Through this 'campfire', we can feel a special glow of companionship and care. Saturn may, for some people, be saying that some time needs to be spent alone, but not to cut yourself off from others. A fine line, but it's something many of us need. It's good to spend time alone, but not so good to spend a lot of time feeling lonely.
All in all, the trend at this full Moon is to venture into new territory, to leave things behind that no longer serve you, to embrace change, adventure and new opportunities.
