The Full Moon on December 18th is in Gemini. Gemini is the twin sign, it’s always got two sides, several options, and multiple routes… This Gemini full moon doesn’t fail us in this regard. It’s riddled with paradoxes!
Gemini is associated with travel, education, media, commerce, and commercialism. It represents the respiratory system (lungs) and the nervous system (Gemini’s are not known to sit still). One or probably two… of these areas will come to a culmination at this full moon.
The moon in Gemini is trine Jupiter in Aquarius bringing in optimism about the future. It lets us envision changes and advances, but is also square to Neptune in Pisces generating a sense of disappointment and disillusionment with whatever is happening.
The ruler of the moon is Mercury, which is in Capricorn. This sobers the moon but also brings it a grounded feeling. Mercury is trine Uranus sparking original thinking and solidly grounded ideas but squares Chiron which makes it feel insecure about striking out and expressing ourselves. What if we are wrong? What if we fail? Who will see our point?
The Sabian symbol for the full moon is “bankruptcy granted to him, a man leaves the court”. This points to failure. We’ve come to the end of the line. There is no other way out. We may have tried to avoid it in every way possible, but finally, reality sets in and we now have to cut our losses. Bankruptcy results in loss, but there is also a sense of relief. However, with a slate is cleaned and we can start again. But were are also at the bottom with nowhere further to go except back up. E
Involved in that clean slate are the consequences of bankruptcy. We may not be trusted and we may not trust ourselves. What led to this failure? We may feel confused about how we got here.
But we now have a chance, free of the pressure, to pause and learn from our mistakes. In business, they say businesses fail three times before they finally succeed. In learning, it’s only in failure that you can truly deeply learn. In travel, you sometimes need to get lost to find your way! Breath deeply, sit still, and gauge your next move.
The full moon at 27 degrees of Gemini is also opposite the galactic center. This is a time when information pours into our world through the portal of the luminaries sitting at the center of our universe. This provides an opportunity for new information to come in. The best way to use this energy at the full moon is to see what needs to be now accepted and what needs to be discarded.
Philip Sedwick, who wrote extensively about the galactic center in astrology offer’s up an exercise to take advantage of it’s energy. I recommend this as part of your full moon ritual this month:
An exercise that works well is the “I Get To Be Wrong About…” drill. On a sheet of paper write, “I get to be wrong about,” across the top. Now add the statements of fact you wish to intellectually eradicate. This looks like, “I get to be wrong about that fact that…” The second part fills in the faulty beliefs previously maintained. These fractured concepts can deal with any area of life. For instance: “the fact that men are not sensitive or don’t listen,” “the fact that I can’t make enough money being spiritual,” “the fact that sex in relationship wanes after six months (or your favorite interval),” “the fact that the world cannot live in peace,” or “the fact that people will never understand the vital life-force energy of the soul,” all offer examples. Documenting these ideas brings them out of the subconscious into the conscious. If you’re not sure what failed beliefs you have, make up one to suit any recurring obstacle you encounter in life.
After the deletion exercise is done, do the creed-building exercise. With deliberate attention, possibly over a series of efforts, define what you do intend to carry within your consciousness as an active, contributing belief. Make these specific, open-ended and clear.
This effort takes care of the mental element. Sometimes, though, the psyche insists upon clinging to old beliefs because its need for stability. It confuses familiarity with good. To address this part of the problem, the psychology and ego must be superseded. This becomes an energy evolution.
Since the information freely rendered by the Galactic Center tends to be very progressive, emotionally confrontational and far out, perhaps a non-personal question serves the process better.
Without going anywhere in intentionally altered consciousness, with eyes open, senses alert, track the flow of information. A stream of consciousness begins. This stream rivals the energy of an arm of a galaxy. It’s rich, strongly logical and precisely wise. No vagueness occurs in the Galactic Center. The information is incisive, direct, informative. If you experience wandering dialogues or thin responses, your inner tracking dish needs a nudge to firm up on the exact degree. It would not yet be precisely aligned.
Should one be tracking the Galactic Center, physical sensations often accompany the flow of information. These sensations confirm the accuracy and relevance of the content. To ease one’s uncertainty about new information, the Galactic Center grants the following classic physical signatures: itching scalp, burning in the palms, gurgling stomach, heat in the back of the neck or at the base of the spine, pressure on the temples of the head and overall tingling. Sometimes a light-headed feeling like that experienced after consuming an excessive amount of sugar or caffeine confirms the tracking.
This information needs documentation. You could write it down. Usually, the flow is so furious that you lag behind in the physical writing process. Recording it works. The use of video or audio devices captures everything. For those up to speed with voice recognition software on the computer, this method works especially well. Grasp it all without losing a lick.
