Sun’s position: 14 degrees Sagittarius (The Centaur)
Moon’s position: 14 degrees Gemini (The Twins)
This Full Moon happens in the sacred time between solstice and the new year. This is a “time – out of time” held as sacred in various traditions – a deep, reverent time to review, to reflect and to reset. (These are called the “Holy Nights” in Rudolph Steiner’s Anthroposophy – there are parallels in other traditions.)
Perhaps you are, like me, a bit tired, off-balance, depleted from choices made to meet the holidays… or perhaps simply (understandingly!) from this year of massive change, divisiveness, death and difficulties! Here, we arrive at the Fullness of the Moon, just days after the conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn ~ and just before the New Calendar year.
So much emphasis upon the NEW right now, and particularly this year, many sources are pushing this idea, this desire to forget about 2020, to banish it and move on to a brand new shiny 2021, setting our intentions our dreams, our can-do attitude for something better! As if that is how things wholly work!
Let me walk us through this: the harvest of this year past is significant for so so many many reasons… globally and personally… some of the harvest is known only to you… we’ve been learning what is not working, coming present to loss, etc etc etc… And I know that YOU know, that to cut that harvest loose to “start again” would be folly! to miss the chance to truly do better, to gain from our experiences…take a deep look at this – stay with what is true…
So yeah, we are moving into something new, but I’d suggest rather than deciding who we want to become, picking from the menu of shiny wonderfulness ~ “yeah I’m going to be that, I’m gonna do that!”… may I suggest instead being quiet, coming back who you are at your soul’s level and watch quietly to perceive the seeds of your own self-realization underneath the winter soil… already percolating… already dreaming.
With the Moon in front of Gemini how loyal can we be to the path it is ours to walk?
With the Sun in front of Sagittarius, how wide, how far beyond “New Year’s resolutions” & Personality can we see?
Where might you turn your cup to the Stars to receive their light? This Moon feels intimate, a sacred place of small internal victories. Good choices made not for external approval but for private dedication and commitment to your own growth, whatever that means to you.
Sense the potency and far-reaching sight of the powerful centaur Sagittarius… aiding each one of us in this inquiry into our own heart/soul and encouraging each of us to step into the new day… from a deep place of loyalty to the truth of who we are as a living soul on this earth, in these times.
