November ends with a lunar celebration, marked by a full Moon and lunar eclipse in the sign of Gemini. The Moon, of course, is the second most influential celestial body in astrology, after the Sun. While new Moons are generally regarded as times to set intentions, full Moons are for reaping what we’ve sown.
Besides the monthly lunar cycle that includes them both at two weeks apart, however, we must also consider the six months it takes for the Moon to complete a cycle in the same sign. The new Moon in Gemini occurred at the end of May. Here we are, now, at the culmination of a six-month cycle with the full Moon in Gemini. And oh, how the world has changed in that time!
Take some time to reflect on where you were and what you wanted just before the summer began. In Gemini terms of logic, spontaneity, and communication, what made sense? What makes sense now? If it’s a need for change and more spontaneity, how can you bring that about while operating rationally within the confines of the present reality? Tap into the full Moon’s reinforcement of creativity for answers.
