Full Moon in Gemini & Sagittarius
The Lunar Lowdown – a few notes
While not a transcript of our current video by any means,
I’ve included the notes below if you’d prefer to read or for referencing the information later!
Actual Time of Celestial Event: Saturday July 8th, 2017 @ 10:06 pm MDT
Sun’s position: 22 degrees Gemini (The Twins)
Moon’s position: 22 degrees Sagittarius (The Archer)
Every Full Moon brings confrontation opposition paradoxes and riddles. And this Moon, we’ve got some bonus energies! The Moon is conjunct Pluto for this Moon: cue the depth of the difficulties, the self criticism, the shadow, vulnerability, the rawness, the transformation, the ability to get to the bottom of things to see the root of situations emotionally rather than just looking at the symptoms.
And the Sun is very close to Mars in Gemini: cue the impatience, anxiety, confidence, Power, forward movement, courage, activity.
How do we harmonize the oppositional energies presented? The seemingly disparate points of view?
Gemini explores options, permutations almost without judgment or analysis. It is a constellation of openness, inquiry, curiosity.
Sagittarius is a constellation of… Business, intention, Determination and pointed focus.
Gemini and Sagittarius both share a Curiosity for the new and for that which is outside of the box.
The “true” thrust of this cycle is the meditation offered, the visualization. So I truly hope you will make time to focus there and here’s information gathered for this cycle:
This could be be a raw and difficult two weeks of exposure as we feel the underbelly of ourselves, our communities and the world. We can see the root causes and sources for any imbalance.
This is a Moon cycle within which to practice not taking things personally yet every reflection can be an opportunity for self-awareness, self revelation, and growth.
Yet simultaneously we have to protect ourselves from being swept under – this can be likened to the journey of Inanna; so who are your safety nets? Your Ninshubar(s), the folks in your life who you can ask to check in on you?
So that’s some thinking, let’s go more deeply into the Star Beings ‘thinking’ as truly I seek to speak their words not mine:
The imagery given was of riding on the broad back of the Archer with the Twins behind. We galloped within the underworld moving quickly with a focus of healing; healing for ourselves and for the world. I whisper into the ear of the Archer and with my arms wrapped around his broad neck, I surrender into forces larger than myself. This cycle, we surrender into this wisdom being who walks through the underworld stepping over and through the bones that are not our concern, steadily carries us forward into that which IS our concern.
I’m reminded of something my teacher Lila Sophia Tresemer would say “healing can happen in an instant.”’ Sink into that… challenge any ideas you have of things have to be hard, or long or laborious to engender healing. Challenge that with the support of the bright Sun and courageous Mars in Gemini. “healing can happen in a moment… an instant”
There’s an animal wisdom to Sagittarius, high animal wisdom. Sensitive, tuned in to all the subtle information coming into our nervous systems, coming into our senses: [information that] culturally we have been stripped of, culturally is diminished or ill considered and just the stuff we block out to do our day to day. This Moon you don’t need to tune into it directly because I think overwhelm is already on high for most of us instead we empower Sagittarius beneath us this horse beneath us. Please trust this Being to guide you through the landscape that it knows better than we can ever hope to! Aho.
The potential here for this Moon cycle is to come into contact with the healing and transformation that awaits each of us specifically. And this specific healing is going to connect with those things that are in the way of our stated goals. It is thru the love and dedication of the Twins, the Sun and Mars that we have the courage, power and the wisdom, vision and magic of the Centaur that we flow through these healing energies like a waterfall, a threshold, a ‘cleansing’ and find ourselves on the other side, healed in small or maybe big ways that are nonlinear, working outside of time as we know it, and elude conceptual understanding.
See the video for the Visualization!
Sit astride this Horse with these Twins, within this light filled container as often as you can in these two weeks. Take advantage of doorways, thresholds, wherever you find them in the real world – consciously stepping through them and feeling yourself cleansed and healed each time.
