Gemini is the sign that reconciles opposites. That performs the miracle of knowing ourselves to be both mortal and divine beings and to activate the magic of these two things becoming one again. The mystery of a Gemini Full Moon Eclipse ruled by a Scorpio Mercury is to find the deep, rich and fertile potential of the shadows we are each here to transmute. To illuminate the dark reaches of your soul, through the mind.
It is alchemical, magical and the awakening of our individual magicians. The embracing of our magical, sexy, seductive and awakened selves. This Full Moon is here to illuminate the mind and allow us to use our voices to inspire and uplift those around us, while honoring our differences and the depths of our all of our beings. It requires great integrity and knowledge of the self. It asks of us a purification of our intentions in alignment with the wish for peace and healing for all, that through our liberation, so too may the whole world be liberated.
This eclipse ignites the understanding of the power we hold to be the magicians of our own lives. It asks we ground into our practice of getting to know our minds and hearts more deeply. To release all the stories, biases, prejudices, hatred and fear that keeps us stuck. To break free of routines and patterns that are keeping us in suffering. To make room for our minds and hearts to open to infinite love for all beings everywhere. To open to higher truths, anchored in our magic and the power we hold to transform it.
Neptune stations direct days before the eclipse. The power of our dreams, visions and creativity as a direct channel to source and collective unconscious is potent right now. Entering the Age of Aquarius is going to be about breaking out of the addictions escapism and quick fixes of Pisces which Neptune rules. She is asking us- how dedicated to your ascension are you?
And I don’t mean ascending out of this reality in order to escape it. Although if that is your spiritual path and you have more work to do in the astral realms then bless it! But Aquarius wants us HERE. Want us to be the kind of spiritual warriors that rise to the mountain of our own spiritual heights to gather the star juice and bring it back down to the people as the water bearer- bearer of truth. Take this moment to pause and release all the ways we reach for quick fixes, escape and avoidance. The great divine, effulgent and juicy bliss and freedom is only found in the present!!
The stationed and potent Neptune opposite a Virgo Vesta squares this eclipse. We are asked to change up our routines and see where we are devoted in a way that is actually controlling. Perhaps our routines or spiritual practice have actually become something that’s keeping us in bondage and preventing our hearts and minds from singing! Science shows that changing our routine and doing things differently increases neuroplasticity in the brain and is super effective at healing depression and suffering in our lives.
Mercury sextiles Jupiter, Pallas Athena ad Saturn activating our ability to pull from the deep wisdom traditions of our own lineage and the Earth in order to create something brilliant with them. Wrapping up their time in Capricorn, the sign of the elder and of structures, Saturn and Jupiter are joining with Pallas Athena to activate the divine feminine genius once again. The heart and soul of community, our ancestry, our elders and their gifts want to be worked with actively in this New Earth birthing now.
Take a moment to honor and thank what these traditions have taught and preserved for us, because the coming Grand Conjunction of Jupiter-Saturn in Aquarius will be asking us to evolve these traditions forward in ways currently unimaginable.
Begin your deep and present wrap up of the lessons of this year. This eclipse is aligned to the royal stars Aldebaran and Antares. Two stars that bring forth riches, prosperity and destruction so that new energy can be released. It is a powerful moon to do manifestation rituals dedicated to the love in your heart, for yourself and for the love of all beings everywhere, without exception.
The coming movements of the Cosmic energies promise change beyond our wildest imagination. Anchor your highest self here and now, without fear, without reserve and without judgement for others. To each one their own, and may each one teach one. This New Earth birthing is going to take the gifts of each individual light <3
