“I shall look at you out of the corner of my eye, and you will say nothing. Words are the source of misunderstandings.” Antoine de Saint-Exupery
A Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in “communication” Gemini today, at 6 degrees (9:45 am EST), puts a spotlight on logical thinking, our conversations or exchanges with others, and information gathering and sharing. With the Sun also in opposing Sagittarius, we are made aware of how our personal beliefs and biases (Sagittarius) can creep into our thought process (Gemini) and correspondingly color it.
Full Moons signify endings or release, while eclipses often represent critical turning points or junctures in our lives. Both provide us the opportunity for greater illumination. With this Lunar Eclipse in “cerebral” Gemini, we may find that we need to modify our beliefs and thinking now to accommodate changing scenarios, or even breakthroughs in our own consciousness.
This Eclipse is in a wide conjunction with optimistic, growth-oriented Jupiter, which can help to give us more upbeat expectations for the future. Jupiter represents our faith and hope. At the same time, with Mars conjunct Pluto in Capricorn and Venus conjunct Saturn in Scorpio, we are also very aware of the need to carefully manage the resources already in our possession now, trimming the fat or belt-tightening, wherever needed. Saturn representing the principal of conservation, Pluto governing elimination.
It’s interesting, too, that we have the talks (Gemini) going on now, on Capitol Hill, about the pending “fiscal cliff” in government (Capricorn), and what to do about it. The politicians will likely be needing to do some impressive mental gymnastics, in the days and weeks ahead, to solve the crisis.
Also, Saturn favorably sextile to Pluto, for the next month or so, should help to create a climate where some kind of resolution is possible for this situation, as these two can be extremely resourceful when they are paired together. Saturn-Pluto also symbolizing the ability to transform or alter (Pluto) the world or structures around us (Saturn). Too, Pluto specifically governs debt and taxes.
Lunar Eclipses can be felt for up to three to six months and we can also feel their impact several days in advance.
Some Gemini Moon Activities: visiting bookstores, libraries, attending lectures, speaking engagements, writing, teaching, short trips, involvement with siblings, neighbors, shopping for cars or phone equipment, sightseeing, social networking.
Happy Eclipse Blessings to you! Would also love to hear about your Eclipse stories, if you would care to comment down below.

Thanks so much for this Patrice. I’ve been having a big “ah-ha moment” today and I assumed it must be the full moon eclipse and their connection with my Jupiter in Gemini in the 9th, then I read your blog and I’m like, THAT’s it, Patrice has summed it up perfectly 😉
Patrice Thompson said:
Wow! That’s great. BTW, I have my natal Jupiter in Gemini in my 3rd house.

Hi Patrice – This morning’s Eclipse took place in my 9th, just a few degrees shy of my Midheaven/Aldebaran conjunction; it set off lots of aspects in my chart – some easy, some challenging. My Scorpio Neptune/Mercury/Jupiter conjunction on the cusp of the 3rd was joined by transiting Saturn and Venus.
Probably the most significant event so far today, was that I received an unexpected -and obviously disinterested- passive aggressive response from a liberal pastor I’m casually acquainted with from within the progressive, religious community (very 9th house Gemini stuff!) It was in response to an email I’d sent out (part of my own personal email campaign) with information on how anyone who was concerned might make their voice heard by emailing and/or phoning elected officials and letting them know where they stand on this one particular issue.
What surprised me the most was that she responded when she didn’t have to and in the process, didn’t even try to pretend she cared. I have to wonder if she realized how revealing her response was! I also have to admit, the condescending tone of her email combined with her apparent lack of concern bothered me, especially considering what it is she does for a living. Thankfully, I took a few deep breaths, refocused on what it was I hoped to accomplish and didn’t take the bait, although with my natal retrograde 9th house Gemini Mars, I easily could have. Most of the other responses I received were very supportive and appreciative, so I felt grateful and hopeful, glad I’d taken on the project. It’s been an interesting day *and* a learning experience, that’s for sure!
Patrice Thompson said:
That is very fascinating and really, really does tie in with the Gemini eclipse today, doesn’t it? Here you are, disseminating emails (Gemini) to people as a way to take a stand on your beliefs and then you receive this unexpected type response from this person, who is also a 9th house figure. What do you think you have learned from this experience so far?
I love your question! Free therapy!:)
I would have to say I’ve gained two important insights from this experience, or maybe it would be more correct to say they’ve been strongly validated by this most recent experience. The first involves an epiphany I recently had which is that a thing is worth doing if it’s done for the right reasons and with the right intention -especially when it involves some cause greater than myself- even when the outcome seems doubtful or is likely doomed to failure. There’s always some hidden treasure or kindness to come of it, even if it’s not in the way I’d originally hoped.
And the second thing that was validated for me has to do with religious and other so-called spiritual seekers, leaders or teachers (or politicians) -really anyone associated with the 9th house matters- who may or may not be any more moral or spiritual, or interested or involved than someone not holding whatever title they happen to hold, even if they and everyone else around them believes it to be so. I realized this a long, long time ago, and yet the hypocrisy will probably always bother me. Maybe the bigger lesson has to do with not allowing myself to be drawn into the darkness by trying to respond to it on its own terms.
Thanks for asking, Patrice. In addition to all the other aspects, today’s Moon also formed an exact trine with my Aquarius Moon in the 5th.

I loved the one insight you shared that:
“a thing is worth doing if it’s done for the right reasons and with the right intention -especially when it involves some cause greater than myself- even when the outcome seems doubtful or is likely doomed to failure. There’s always some hidden treasure or kindness to come of it, even if it’s not in the way I’d originally hoped.”…
I totally resonate to that.
Regarding the second insight you mentioned:
“religious and other so-called spiritual seekers, leaders or teachers (or politicians) -really anyone associated with the 9th house matters- who may or may not be any more moral or spiritual, or interested or involved than someone not holding whatever title they happen to hold, even if they and everyone else around them believes it to be so. I realized this a long, long time ago, and yet the hypocrisy will probably always bother me. Maybe the bigger lesson has to do with not allowing myself to be drawn into the darkness by trying to respond to it on its own terms.”
I also personally can understand where you are coming from here, as I have had similar experiences. I would hasten to say, probably most people have had these kinds of experiences. What about, though, if we let go of our personal judgment of where these individuals are at along their path? How might that change the equation, I wonder?
“What about, though, if we let go of our personal judgment of where these individuals are at along their path? How might that change the equation, I wonder?”
I understand your point and have to admit I’ve noticed that generally only people who understand and recognize the dark are injured by it (at least initially), whereas those of us who can’t help but see (and feel) it experience it as a sort of toxin or psychic assault and understand the danger and potential for long-term damage.
Either way, it’s best for me to use my powers of discernment by making the healthiest choice I can, which in this case is to limit my exposure and not participate in the illusion or engage any more than I have to. The less time I spend focused on this person and her personal issues, the less entangled I become. I’d stepped way back prior to this last exchange. Now it’s time to completely remove myself and remain removed.:) My other lesson is to never to ignore my first instincts.
Patrice Thompson said:
I totally agree that we should never ignore our first instincts on people, situations, etc. It is also very important, of course, to always have healthy boundaries in place for ourselves to preserve not only our physical energy but also our emotional well-being.
I only mentioned the judging aspect because I think often when we judge others, it ends up being a no-win situation for all the parties involved, and that can be a very draining experience. Sometimes I think instead of casting judgment, it is just a lot healthier and easier to re-frame things from a perspective that the other person is where they are at, behavior-wise, because of where they are at in their life journey, and when they know better, their behavior will improve.
Too, I think it can also be very insightful, to go one step further, and ask of ourselves “Why am I judging this or that person in the first place?”
What do you think?
I believe we’re all here on a journey, all of us works in progress. And whether intentional or not, we’re all meant to challenge one another through our interactions and insights, as each of us (hopefully) grows into our best selves. But the choice is always ours and none of us can make that choice for another. Nor should we allow our judgments to become an excuse for acting without integrity or compassion.
Sometimes it’s as simple as knowing what we know, then deciding on the best course of action (or non-action) to take based on available options – in both a spiritual and practical sense. I think we all need to exercise our powers of discernment when making choices and to be “as wise as serpents and harmless as doves” when dealing with a world that would rather we turn a blind eye to its darkness.
Patrice Thompson said:
You have such wonderful perceptions into things! I love how you think.
Too, behavior also reflects our individual values, don’t you think? Maybe this person’s value are a lot different than yours?
“Too, behavior also reflects our individual values, don’t you think? Maybe this person’s value are a lot different than yours?”
I’m not fast enough to keep up with our conversation – lol! But yes, that’s it exactly. We do have very different values, although based on our shared faith you wouldn’t think that would be the case.:)
And thanks for the compliment! I think a lot, that’s for sure.:)
Adding, if we do run into one another, I still intend to remain courteous and kind. And privately, I’ll ask that this person receive spiritual guidance and blessings, and that she be protected from unnecessary harm.
As a sensitive, I feel her pain and understand why she feels the false need to repress her higher instincts by demeaning these same instincts in others. Yet no matter how kind I am in her presence, she’s perceptive enough to know that I know her, and this knowledge will always cause her to feel challenged and uneasy, and to view me as a threat, something to be conquered.
Patrice Thompson said:
Have you thought of approaching her and directly speaking to her about this particular matter?
We’ve had a complicated relationship with our roles often reversed. Ironically enough, at one point early in our relationship, she came to me for intuitive guidance, which she had a tough time hearing – this deeply-rooted resistance is something I’ve tried to be sensitive to and respectful of. Not unlike a lot of people, she often seems most comfortable operating within the confines of her chosen ‘persona’, where she’s less vulnerable but also less authentic. That trade-off is her choice.
At this point, I think it’s best for me to recognize she’s coming from a different place (something you mentioned also, and good advice), and to leave it alone while wishing her well.
Thank you for tying to offer your support, Patrice; I appreciate it and have enjoyed our conversation! It’s provided a nice break from my work on the computer.:)
