In the wee hours of Monday, November 27th (in North America at least) we reach the energetic climax of the Gemini full moon.
On it's own, this full moon is the culmination of whatever began six months ago at the Gemini new moon back on June 18th.
That happened just as Saturn was stationing retrograde in fellow mutable sign Pisces, meaning it was at a square to the June lunation in Gemini by whole sign, just as this Gemini full moon is again in square to Saturn. And we have Mars in the mix yet again this time too.
This sets the stage for a "Saturn smackdown" from when the Gemini sun first squared Saturn back on November 23rd all the way through when the full moon is exact on Monday, as sun, Mars, then moon all square up to Saturn on their way to the full moon event.
This likely has felt quite challenging, especially on the heels of the sun and Mars in alignment with Pluto last Sunday through Tuesday, which had us fired up with the desire to succeed, only to run headlong into this crunch. But it's the kind of pressure that creates big growth, however uncomfortable it is to move through, and big growth is what we need to prepare for the next phase.
You see, Saturn just stationed direct after being retrograde since June 17th, and it's still sitting on that same 0° mark of Pisces it stationed direct on on November 4th - until the 28th, the day after this full moon, when it FINALLY moves forward onto the first degree of Pisces.
Now we get to move forward, and the big news now is the square Mars is now moving into with Lilith, applying all of this week and exacting it on December 3rd.
This is the big follow up to our recent rodeo with Saturn that led us into this full moon, and there's more growth coming. Think: transcending what's been holding you back to expand into even more love and abundance.
And I mean specifically things like deep-seated feelings of inadequacy. Anytime Lilith is involved we are dealing with shadow stuff, but it's about reclaiming our freedom and our original "wild" state, before anyone tried to domesticate us - that natural authentic state that is so beautiful and captivating. Do you remember that you?
This is about reclaiming that innate sense of belonging - not necessarily to a person or a group of people, but to the earth itself, as a creature of this earth whose belonging and place can never be questioned. And this is what lets you reclaim your power, and your authenticity, and your inner throne. And it's what allows you to step into the kind of knowing of your inherent value as a human being that suddenly has you claiming your space and setting boundaries with ease, naturally.
This is a necessary step on our journey now.
It's a beautiful thing.
With the December 5th last quarter moon, we are going to turn a big corner.
The last quarter moon is the halfway point between the full moon illumination and new moon regeneration and the time when we choose what to release - what we don't want to carry with us through the new moon portal. With the 12/12 new moon being in Sagittarius (plus a couple of other magical energetic alignments I'll be going over in the 12/5 live in the Facebook group), you'll want to focus on releasing anything that stands between you and faith, belief, optimism, and expanding into more love and abundance. Mercury retrograde is going to be jumping in to help - it just happens to station direct on January first in Sagittarius just 2° away from where this new moon is on the 12th, and Mercury IS the Magician.
This is setting you up for 2024.
