To halt escaping
Like screeching wheels
Against a tide of metal
I’ll welcome it gently
Like the dawn comes creeping slowly
Igniting from within
Some secret fire
I’ll wait no more
For life to start
In some dark corner
Expecting dawn to find me there
The dawning comes
To those who seek it
Go out into that great field
Cast with consciousness
Your net into Eternity
Casting The Net-
The Gemini Full Moon offers us yearly the opportunity to see through the eyes of the mind of the Divine more clearly. Mercury’s sign of the twins is inherently about the reconciliation of the duality of this dimension through the mind. The two being the primary division of the one, it is the mind that analyzes and perceives details around duality.
But we should remember, the brain also has two hemispheres- one for thinking and one for knowing. One for analyzing, and one for creating. We need both hemispheres in coherence with the heart (one of the derivations of the Holy Trinity) in order to expand into the field of eternity, from which we can find the clarity to create like the creator.
The ever-narrowing conjunction of Saturn and Pluto (exact on 1/12/20) seems to be lifting the veil of denial. Denial is not disbelieving that something is real. It is truly believing in it and refusing to look at it. Denial, therefore puts energy towards the thing we don’t want to be real. But instead, if we simply sit with the thing, shake its hand, say hello and meet it, we become empowered to do something about it. This burning of the veil of denial will likely increase until the end of January, and this Gemini Moon seems to be asking us to tune our minds and hearts into the conversation so that we can consciously- co-create the world we want to live in.
Venus is right in between Saturn and Pluto during the full moon- reminding us that integrity is beautiful, self-transformation is sexy. Mars is trining Neptune, giving spiritual insight and compassion for the penetrating of our shadow selves. If we are willing to use our minds as the great reflector of spirit, as Mercury is the like the Moon of the Sun, we are well supported in extracting new-found wisdom through conscious self-reflection. Reflection leads to wisdom, wisdom leads to healing and healing restores beauty to the world.
We may be seeing themes around relationships, boundaries, philosophy and honesty. But before we get honest with others, we have to get honest with ourselves. This is not to bash or put ourselves down as failures, but simply to weigh what is, what is not and then be willing to have a conversation. If we can stay out of the Capricorn tendencies to be too harsh or critical, but soften into Venus’s sweet smile and Neptune’s forgiving nature, we may have some very healing and empowering conversations over these few days.
We can use this Hermes Full Moon to practice healing/wholing the mind to unleash its true potential. Mercury is currently in the sign of Sagittarius trining Chiron, where he seeks philosophy and wisdom wrought of experience. Where he seeks to channel the divine higher laws of the universe as our direct link to source, not just be some hindrance to it. Chiron brings healing to the mind by wholing the mind, unleashing its potential and just maybe, learning something of our own Divine natures.
The mind gets a bad rap in modern spiritual culture as the thing that is causing all of our problems. It is like we are a victim to it, and meditation is about stilling it to make it shut up. But this is only the left brain- thinking and analyzing mind. This is to deny the entire right hemisphere of the brain associated with knowing, creating and mysticism.
Instead of imagining that we are shutting our mind up, we can seek through our meditation to unite our dualistic natures as both human and divine. Both are equally sacred, and it is through marrying the two that the third thing is born- Love. Just as when two parents join together, love is born as a child- and thus we have creation. When we bring both hemispheres of the brain into coherence, it naturally comes into coherence with the Heart- and from this state we can consciously create our lives.
It has been shown scientifically that when a person is in a meditative state both hemispheres of the brain sync up to the same rhythm. Once this happens, these waves come into coherence with the heart’s wavelength. This can be seen as the Holy Trinity in ancient religions, as the mother-father-child, as the Thrice-great Hermes. So, when we practice meditation where we reach our awareness out into the field of eternity and space all around us, that coherence grows, and so does our ability to create.
Quantum Theory is showing that what was previously believed to be empty space is actually something called “dark energy” which is potential energy beyond what we can even currently measure. Studies have shown that all energy is waiting conscious direction before it takes form as either light waves or particles.
This confirms what ancient mystery schools have taught for millennia, that is it from the expansion of our awareness into the field of creation that we may create with the same energy that’s waiting to leap from wave to particle. It’s all about where we place our attention, and to direct our attention consciously takes practice, especially in the modern world.
So, on this Moon that may feel like it wants to move around, may we seek stillness. May we begin by casting the net of our awareness out into the field of eternity. May you feel the truth in the union of opposites and the third thing waiting to be born form it. May you feel empowered to seek and speak your truth. May your consciousness rise out of the mundane and into the Universal and back again until they unite as one. The answers lie in the field awaiting your conscious direction. So go out into that great field and cast your net wide and create with love.
