“In the age of technology there is constant access to vast amounts of information. The basket overflows; people get overwhelmed; the eye of the storm is not so much what goes on in the world, it is the confusion of how to think, feel, digest, and react to what goes on.” Criss Jami
A Full Moon in restless “Gemini the Messenger” (5:44 pm EST) revs up our thought processes and curiosity, potentially resulting in “information overload,” if we’re not careful. Since Gemini is the official sign of communication, there can also be a strong desire now to want to share what we find out with others, kind of like a cub reporter with a red hot news scoop. Gemini also formally governs news organizations and the media.
In general, Mercury-ruled Gemini symbolizes our logical thinking, our sense of wonderment, our interaction with our immediate environment, including our relationships with our neighbors or siblings. This sign is also associated with mass transit and travel.
Full Moons represent culmination points and can bring matters to a head, including what was undertaken – the intentions that were set – during the previous New Moon, which in this case, would have been the New Moon in the “transformational” sign of Scorpio, on November 11th.
Full Moons are also often revelatory, so it’s possible that new information will filter out to us now that causes us to have a fresh takeaway or a new slant on things. It’s also a good time to possibly even reflect upon the particular way that we individually process or sort out our daily experiences, or how we get to know things for ourselves. This could also include assessing our personal style of learning. For example, I recently concluded that I learn best when I take in information via audio versus more passive book reading. At least my level of retention seems to be better with the audio, even though I love to read.
With this Full Moon in Gemini, the Sun is in opposing Sagittarius, the sign of higher understanding, which suggests that, during this lunation, we are also attempting to attach meaning or significance (Sagittarius) to the information that we are receiving or gathering (Gemini). Or, as Criss Jami alludes to in the opening quote of this blog, we are trying to sort everything out in such a way that we know “how to think, feel, digest, and react to what goes on.”
This Gemini Full Moon is also opposing Mercury and Saturn in Sagittarius – which are both conjunct the Sun – as well as squaring Neptune in Pisces, so we may also be grappling with how our beliefs (Sagittarius) pertaining to safety or security issues (Saturn) impact or shape our willingness to be open, loving, and compassionate (Neptune) with others. Or, how our fears, guilt, or past conditioning (Saturn) may serve to keep us separated from each other – instead of unified (Neptune) – and what to do about it.
Questions for Today: What are you most curious about? What is something that you feel compelled to share with the world? How do you go about sifting through news reports for accuracy? How do you feel about trusting strangers?
