Friday's full moon is both the culmination of this lunar cycle, which began with the new moon in Gemini on Friday, the 22nd, and the Sagittarius new moon that occurred on November 26th, 2019.
To refresh our memories as to the astrological energies around at the Sagittarius new moon last November, here is what was written about it by astrologer Jamie Partridge (www.astrologyking.com):
The full moon eclipse, exact at 1:12 p.m., MDT, is all about beliefs.
At this full moon, the moon (what we are not consciously aware of but becomes the basis of our emotions, thoughts, and behavior) will be in Sagittarius, illuminated by the sun (light of consciousness, awareness, life force) in Gemini. Gemini and Sagittarius form one of the six axes of the zodiac, and as such represent a specific set of polarities in our lives. Gemini represents dualities, the mind, thoughts, words, communication, facts, and opinions, as well as the flexibility, versatility, and adaptability to allow space for all of them, even when they conflict. A negative expression then of Gemini would be lies, deception, and the manipulation of information to our advantage. In the positive, Gemini supports us in seeing situations from new angles and view points, which then gives us access to new solutions. Gemini brings awareness to new information and new perspectives, which is very important because we cannot implement anything in our lives until we have been exposed to the possibility of that option.
Bringing our conscious focus to all things Gemini is what this lunar cycle is all about. The North Node of the moon, an astrological point of increase which shows us the pathway forward, the future, destiny, and soul growth, in Gemini as of May 6th into 2022, makes what we are being shown during this current lunar cycle even more important - this is illuminating "where we are growing" over the next two years. (Have you noticed the sudden increase in information and opinions in recent weeks?)
Venus is also currently retrograde in Gemini. Venus rules love and money in our lives. On a deeper level, Venus rules our values, self-value, and self-love. It is by way of those things in our inner landscape that Venus is connected to love, money, relationships, and our powers of attraction and our ability to receive in our lives. With Venus retrograde in Gemini, we have the opportunity to dive in and face our shadow, and any pain, anger, shame, guilt, and grief that we carry. By doing so we welcome back to us the parts that get fragmented during painful experiences, and return to a state of wholeness, inherently valuable and powerful.
Venus has just reached the heart of her retrograde journey on Wednesday, June 3rd, where she made a conjunction with the sun (sits in the throne room of the king) and attains some form of enlightenment. This is where she finds what she turned back and went looking for. This is the part of the journey where our heroin faces her shadow and is reborn to a new consciousness.
For us, this comes just two days before Friday's full moon eclipse in Sagittarius, where the Gemini sun will be illuminating the opposing Sagittarius moon (and in square aspect to Mars).
The potential for revelation in regards to at least some of the limiting beliefs we carry and of which we have been unconscious is high. It may not be comfortable, but if we embrace this opportunity and work with it, it could be profoundly healing and liberating.
The intensity is high as we build towards Friday's midday eclipse. The more we are willing to look at ourselves, and our internal turmoil, and meet ourselves with acceptance and self-love, the less affected we will be by the chaos around us, and the more we will meet what is outside of us with acceptance and self-love. If we keep turning within, we are less likely to project outside of us. If we keep loving within, the more we will experience love outside of us.
Right now Venus is working with this powerful full moon eclipse to support us in clearing out the residue of the past so we can access more love, give more love, receive more love, and BE LOVE. Love, and self-love, is our terra firma now, and from that we build the foundation of beliefs that support the vision of love we wish to create.
