Full Moon In Gemini...November 28th, 2012...

("Gemini"; Artist: Maria Szollosi)
Wednesday, November 28th, at 10:47AM/EST, is November’s Full Moon in Gemini. Gemini is a mutable air sign, and represents flexibility, logic, and communication, among other things. Full Moons are a time of culmination...projects, issues, etc. are wrapping up/coming to fruition. It is also a time when emotions are at their highest as emotional energy runs rampant. Be prepared in the event that Gemini runs up against the Moons phase…there could be some emotional tension. There is potential for some issues to seem larger than life. All the more reason to show them some attention by kicking them to the curb and allowing yourself to heal.

This month we have a double whammy in the energy department. This Full Moon is accompanied by a Lunar Eclipse, and Eclipses signify endings. Take advantage of this powerful situation by using the extra punch to help you release issues you have been hanging onto. There is strong potential for something you have shoved to the back of your emotional closet, to come to the fore. Years end is just around the corner, and we will be on the verge of starting a new one. This issue presenting itself to you is the high sign for addressing and releasing it as an early step in starting fresh in 2013 (good grief, where did 2012 go?!). Take the opportunity to work on resolving outstanding issues, and unload them.

There is a Yod this cycle with quite a bit going on. The lunar axis portion has the moon in Gemini and Venus conjunct a Scorpion Saturn, Sextile Mars conjunct Pluto in Capricorn forming the base. Midpoint in the base is the Sagittarian Sun. The energies of both the Sun and Moon look to be working together through this lunation, in that the Sun’s energies will foster some much needed insight, and the Moon will aid you in being able to look at an issue from different angles. Approaching things with an open mind is beneficial, but don’t over think things. That can be counter-productive, and this isn’t the time to unnecessarily spin your wheels on one subject when the time can be better spent moving on to something else. Trusting your emotions is a key here, but let them advise you. Don’t let them rule you. It is also advisable to watch what you say to others, and how you say it. Sarcasm could have drastic effects for the bad, and you will feel it come back on you…and then some. Widely conjunct the Moon is Jupiter in Gemini. Even if your comments are meant to add some levity and help boost a situation, there is the greater likelihood that things will back-fire on you. Remember, under this Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse, emotions will be running high. It is also advised that you stay away from making promises you can’t keep. Even if your intentions are good, if the promise is too big and you see some difficulty in filling it, you might want to think better of it.

The base of the Yod has Venus conjunct Saturn in Scorpio. On the face, this might give one pause, but the aspect is a strong and loyal one. The base also has Mars in a strong conjunct with Pluto in Capricorn. The protection created by these four planets is perfect for personal issues in terms of relationships. Any new relationships created will persevere. It might not be easy going, but they will stay intact. But note: since Pluto and Scorpio are in the mix, the relationship road can be one of smooth sailing, or there might be more than a few pot-holes along the way. As with most situations in life, you can have great effect on what happens. The way you choose to set your mind, and the choices you make can help dictate which road you travel.

Trine to Ceres in Cancer (still) is Neptune in Pisces, quietly going about its business. Its effects are rather subtle, but it's there to give some soft nurturing to those who need it. Sitting direct in Scorpio is Mercury (Gemini’s planet). Mercury isn’t in aspect with anything right now. Why is this worth mentioning? Mercury can give you some help by providing you with insight that you may find useful. As the Lunar Eclipse works it’s mojo on those inner issues that are bubbling up, that ‘insight’ could be of use to you.

Piscean Chiron is in a T-Square with the Sagittarian Sun, opposing the Gemini Full Moon. You could encounter an off-kilter situation that will cause some painful healing, and it will come through your vulnerability. Uranus in Aries is Trine the Sun and Sextile the Moon. There is a rule of thumb that I mention from time to time in these forecasts: be respectful of others, to get respect in return. There is positive and inspirational energy to be had from Uranus, so take full advantage by showing others respect. To do otherwise might give them an opening to look for your ‘soft spots’.

During this lunation, be kind to yourself. You may feel a tug to isolate a bit and engage in some escapism. Of course there is such a thing as healthy escapism, but instead of closing yourself off, open up your heart and mind to the issues making themselves known. Acknowledge them, and address them. Allow yourself to feel whatever emotions are tied to an issue, and use them to cleanse and heal. Show yourself some generosity, and take stock of what you need. Take care of YOU on all levels: mental, emotional, physical, spiritual. This is one area where being busy is never an excuse. I know that may be easier said than done for some, but it’s all in how you choose to think. There’s the old adage about ‘thinking the glass is half full, or half empty’. You might think it’s corny, but it’s so true. The strong energies of this Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse are prime for taking out some emotional garbage to get ready for a fresh start with the new year that’s almost upon us. 
The following excerpt is from the Farmer's Almanac:

  • Full Beaver Moon ~ November:  This was the time to set beaver traps before the swamps froze, to ensure a supply of warm winter furs. Another interpretation suggests that the name Full Beaver Moon comes from the fact that the beavers are now actively preparing for winter. It is sometimes also referred to as the Frosty Moon.
