Effervescent volatile Gemini full Moon!

Energy packed Gemini full Moon
13/14th Dec 2016



Highlighting our communications and our sense of adventure, the gemini full Moon may be felt as an uplifting and high energy time. It’s also restless, excitable, playful, volatile and very social.

We may feel that it’s time we really express ourselves, after all Gemini and Sagittarius are the mental axis.

Full Moons can be experienced as a peak in the lunar energy cycles, often our best learning can come through encounters with other people. It is a super charged time, a good opportunity to release. Like with all full Moons we need to balance the two opposing/ complimentary signs involved.

Gemini: Resourceful, adaptable, communicative, quick, clever, trickster, stimuli oriented, unstable, playful, trickster, analytical, restless, enthusiastic, cheerful, wittyimgres


Sagittarius: adventure seeking, optimistic, freedom loving, restless, righteous, expansive, careless, tactless, open minded

Mercury, the ruler of this full Moon, is in Capricorn, getting close and personal with Pluto. It can indicate a time to regenerate our thinking and our communication. This may play out in a number of ways:
# we may uncover the truth of a situation that’s been unclear or misleading
# we may be tempted to”say it as it is” – watch out what you say may come out with more force and intensity than you intended
# this may be a great chance to connect more intimately and honestly with others
# we may get obsessed with our own perspective or beliefs

At it’s best the combination of Mercury and Pluto can help us purge old ways of thinking and release thought forms that have kept us stuck in old patterns that no longer serve us.

The Sun and Moon make wonderful aspects to other planets.

Uplifting and optimistic Jupiter sextiles (60 degrees) the Sun and trines (180 degrees) the Moon. Helping us harness more faith in life and broadening our horizons. Innovative Uranus trines the Sun and sextiles the Moon. This will get us to look for some excitement and stimulation. It will most likely add a few surprises to the mix! Then there’s high energy Mars. All revved up, ready for some action, making a sextile to the sun and trine to the Moon. We can count on Mars to egg us on to make some bold moves! It’s in Aquarius, accentuating independence, originality and doing our own thing.

Aspects from Chiron and Saturn

On a more serious note, the closest aspect in the chart for this full Moon is Chiron 21 degrees Pisces making a square (90 degrees) to both the Sun and Moon (22 degrees). It is a strong dynamic that may bring up our deepest vulnerabilities. Opportunities will be present to get clearer about our wounds.

This is a phenomenal chance for healing, for sharing what we normally keep guarded and ‘safe’ from others. We may be blessed with insights about the dynamics in our psyche that create a feeling of alienation from others. This is Chiron’s gift to the Sun in Sagittarius and Moon in Gemini and to us.
Remember if you experience your deepest secret wound exposed, don’t cover it up. Let it breathe, sit with it, share it with someone you trust. It will never be the same again. Eventually it can be your strength.

The Sun has been conjunct (next to) Saturn since the 8th december, it is not exact anymore. But even though it’s moving away, it’s still under Saturn’s influence. Lucky for us, as it adds stability to this volatile lunation. With all the high energies present it will keep us grounded. Saturn will also remind us to be more accountable for our words.

Be mindful of the power of words to transform, to express your deepest truth, to persuade, to reveal secrets.

Mercury is going retrograde on the 19th Dec, so make sure you finish any important commercial transactions before then. Also includes buying vehicles or flights. It will be a good time for some reflection.

Uranus goes direct on the 29th December, it’s been retrograde since the end of July. This should get things moving in the new year. Let’s get ready for Uranus to embolden us Aries style. New horizons in self expression will be waiting to be discovered. Let’s seize  the chance to revolutionise our lives. Look to which house in your chart that transiting Uranus is going through. That will give you an idea as to which part of your life the opportunities are.



This can be a game changer full Moon!

So, let’s enjoy this full Moon, there’s a lot of fun to be had! Keep an open mind, don’t be impulsive or dogmatic. Stay open to seeing things through others point of view. This could be the release you need if you have been holding back! Enjoy! There’s a lot of rollicking to be had!
Happy Gemini full Moon!
