The Full Moon at 4’51 Gemini is exact on Monday November 24th, 2023 at 4:16am EST- marking the midpoint of the current Lunar Cycle that we are in that began with the New Moon in Scorpio on November 13th. Interestingly that New Moon was conjunct Mars and Ceres in Scorpio and this Full Moon is opposite Mars and Ceres now in Sagittarius. Themes of war, home and family and environmental situations (like fires, earthquakes and volcanic eruptions) have certainly been in focus in the last few weeks! nn

In the Full Moon chart we have the Full Moon in Gemini opposing the Sun/Mars/Ceres conjunction in Sagittarius with everything being squared by Saturn in Pisces. A T-square with the Lord of Karma and Father of Time is intense. The Sun/Saturn and Mars/Saturn squares that were exact leading up to this Full Moon (exact 11/23 and 11/25) get activated by this Lunation. With the mutable signs of Gemini, Sagittarius and Pisces involved we are being confronted with our beliefs and perspectives and we are being challenged to question things and find a Greater Vision of Truth.

Are you willing to be wrong so that you can see/realize what is right? Are you able to come back to Beginner’s Mind? At best Gemini is about coming back to Beginner’s Mind- yet the shadow of this sign is it prefers to just lightly gloss over the surface of things and will not really Dive Deep to get to bottom of things. Saturn in Pisces demands we take off the rose colored glasses and see reality as it is on its own terms!

The Full Moon semisquares Venus in Libra on the South Node and sesquiquadrates the Eris/North Node conjunction. Venus on the South Node is amplifying and exacerbating our karmic tendencies of wanting things to look perfect and pretty and not stir the pot- but Eris on the North Node in Aries has something else to say. This is about activism, taking a stand for Truth, pulling back the veil and really seeing the Truth as it is on its own terms! Interestingly the Eris conjunction to the Mean North Node was October 21s but the True Node conjunction is the same day as the Full Moon!

Venus just finished triggering the Eclipse Degree from the Ring of Fire Solar Eclipse exact on 10/14 and the South Node is about to trigger it as well. Pay attention to what was activated back then and what is coming up right now. Connect the dots to see the Greater Story Arc unfolding- particularly in regard to partnerships, marriages, alliances, peace treaties and more.

The Full Moon makes tense aspects to both Teacher Planets- Jupiter in Taurus and Saturn in Pisces. These Teachers are teaching us via our bodies (earthy Taurus) and emotions (watery Pisces)- and the shadow of the Gemini Full Moon can express by us being stuck in our heads, preferring to think and analyze instead of drop down in and truly feel. Being aware of escapist tendencies is key!

The Ruler of this Lunation is Mercury who is at 25 Sagittarius heading to align with the Galactic Center while having just entered front end shadow. Mercury will station Retrograde on 12/13 as of this Full Moon we will start getting a previous of what is to come. Being willing to question things and open our minds will be key in the coming month of December. Pay attention to messages and information arising that could be a game changer!!!

I leave you with the Sabian Symbol and Star Sparks degrees for this Lunation. The Sabian Symbol feels very descriptive to what is going on with the Palestinian/Israel conflict. The Star Sparks speaks to the medicine needed in this now moment. You can read them both below.






KEYNOTE: The explosive tendency of repressed feelings and root emotions.

Every movement overstressing one direction calls forth in time an equally extreme movement in the opposite direction. This is particularly true at the level of the dualistic mind symbolized in the zodiac by Gemini. What is rigidly bound in form and convention tends to explode into formlessness. It may do so violently if socially oppressed — through revolution — or at the psychological level in psychosis; or it may withdraw inwardly into the mystical state in which one identifies with an unformulatable Reality.

This fifth stage is related to the first, for it is the experience of a world of being so far unperceived by the everyday consciousness which starts the process. In the same sense a psychedelic experience may momentarily make the mind transparent to a non-ego-structured realm of consciousness, and may lead to a sustained attempt at understanding what has been revealed of a transcendent Reality. Whether the revolutionary action is violent or peaceful, bitterly resentful or loving, the one desire is TO REACH BEYOND ESTABLISHED FORMS.

What we carry in here is far too much for us. We could never express a fraction of it. We just can’t give it all away fast enough. For it keeps replenishing itself, shows up in yet another form.

We are becoming the feature in a splendid multi-level promise, vision and great call. Everything we move through pulls us toward that place beyond. We could go anywhere with this, do anything, be anybody.

When you are big and you see and you know so broadly, what comes is a destiny path which partakes in the multiplicity at every point and always proves to be inclusive, all-encompassing, and staggering in its reach. You just feel the pulse of the world becoming all through you.

Yet the small ego-structure of the little self in the little world of memory and mind is so dwarfed by this magnitude of awareness and attunement that it almost snaps. How can anybody contain, harness, channel, do justice to this kind of stretch and scope?

Well, nobody can. What is entered upon now, in any given now, is just the first gleaming, the initial vision. It is the grossest approximation. Yet it has to be affirmed and journeyed with freely if it is to be the springboard it is meant to be.

So there is this wide open impulse to become the world, to activate forces of possible futures, to host and to orchestrate. And there is this future form to fit the wide open impulse into if it can be done.

Each initiation, every probe into the unknown is really into free space. What is sought is connection with whatever has previously been tuned out. And the center thrust is to be awakening across a broad enough band to respond joyously to whatever comes in the infinite bright surround.

This is fresh wonder territory of having room enough to meet all that is breaking loose, just knowing there are no binding limits.
