This Gemini Full Moon challenges our beliefs on what we think is real and what is not. Like all full moons, it’s a highly charged time. It can be experienced as a peak of the prevailing energies. Often our best learning can come through encounters with other people.

Gemini is a social sign, it ‘rules communication, logic, commerce, travel amongst other things.It is a dual sign that is associated with twins (there’s always a dark twin and a light twin). Gemini is good at connecting people together, making it a natural networker. It’s also good at connecting ideas, gathering data and passing it on to others. With the moon in Gemini we may be busy making sense of our feelings.

Sagittarius is the adventurer, the truth seeker, looking to turn all the information into wisdom. Wisdom is useful knowledge that can help make our lives more fulfilling. At this time we have Sun in Saturn and Mercury in Sagittarius hanging around pretty close.
Let’s have a closer look at both these signs.

Gemini, like all air signs is a very mental energy, is easily bored. It’s curious, seeks knowledge and loves learning situations. While Sagittarius, like all fire signs favour inspired action that has personal meaning and satisfaction. How do these qualities affect this full moon?

Firstly, we may ask ourselves have we gathered enough knowledge/wisdom to help us deal with any changes we need to make in our lives? Or with decisions we must take? Gemini focuses on details and facts, while Sagittarius likes to look at the big picture. We need to incorporate both.

One thing these signs have in common is that they are both dual signs. Gemini, as mentioned before is represented by the symbol of the twins. Sagittarius is represented by a centaur, a mythical creature that is half man half horse. So with all this dual energy around we may find ourselves feeling split or challenged.

This full moon is complicated by the presence of Neptune, which is making a 90 degree angle to it. We can use the Neptune energy to cultivate a unity of vision from the above mentioned duality. Neptune loves to dissolve differences so we may experience the oneness of everything.

This of course is easier said than done. We will need : patience, caution, keeping the faith, spending time in nature, contemplation, meditation, finding the balance between logic and intuition, being more flexible and adaptable.

The  Neptune/ Saturn square, is a stressful aspect that can cause anxiety and tension. It is challenging us to assess and feel whether we have integrated our dreams and ideals (Neptune) into our physical ‘reality’ (Saturn). We may experience this as a time of dissolution, this can mean that we have not included enough of our aspirations in our lives. We will need to be more creative in our approach to life and to develop and deepen our connection to spirit.

This is a wonderful opportunity to review the beliefs we have that may hold us back from living a life closer to our dreams. It is a time of hard work, responsibilities and discipline (Sun/ Saturn). We may be making important decisions or deciding to study (Mercury/ Saturn). We may also be dealing with worry and guilt.



It is timely to clear old patterns of thinking that cause these feeling of guilt and anxiety. It would be helpful at this time to simplify life. Cultivating processes that help us become more aware of what we can control and what we can’t. This will foster our ability to allow life to flow, yet have structures in place that can contain our visions and dreams.

As we shift our perspective, we can turn what seems like chaos and uncertainty into a cohesive meaningful broad vision of where we are headed in life.
Happy Gemini Full Moon!
