GEMINI FULL MOON ECLIPSE 2020
The eclipse cycle with the full moon at 8 degrees Gemini on 30 November at 4:29 AM EST.
The full Moon opposes Sun in Sagittarius— both mutable signs. Gemini is Air and Sagittarius is fire.
Air feeds fire. Our ideas, impressions and beliefs are illuminated for us to run through our systems: the mind, the nervous system (Gemini), the Intuitive body (Sagittarius).
Most planets have resumed forward motion. Neptune in Pisces (also a mutable sign) went direct on November 28th.
We are going to begin to lift our hearts and minds from the mire of collective untruths and hyperbole to see for ourselves what is true, what we choose to believe and how we want to proceed.
Gemini likes to collect the shiny bits of information. Sagittarius will unpack the sack of glittering ideas and see which ones will make up the mosaic of its updated belief system.
Sagittarius is developing its intuition. It will, if it is attending to itself, let go of outside influences to make up its own mind.
Sagittarius can be affected by accepted belief systems: organized religion, political bodies, cultural standards.
It is wanting, however, to expand its mind beyond what it has been fed by parents, teachers, religious and governmental leaders. It wants the big adventure of knowing its own mind through investigation and development of intuition.
We are on a big adventure of accepting our own authority and taking responsibility for our own ideas and where the commitment to those ideas takes us.
A Lunar Eclipse amplifies Full Moon energy, so giving the emotional body extra love and attention is paramount at this time.
Venus in Scorpio opposes Uranus in Taurus at the full Moon, as well. Memories of old loves could be affecting emotions and connections in the here and now. Uranus rules all memories of this life and other lives, so what has been running in the background could rise up for examination and healing.
Now that Mars is direct, we can assimilate old experiences and the effects they have had on us and grow in forward motion, moving on.
Whenever we have the Scorpio/Taurus polarity, we incorporate the way we care for and value the self with the way we share with others. We see where we are self-empowered on our own and once we interact with others.
This leads to a recommendation of more self-care, acknowledgement of where it hurts and where it’s healing.
Uranian energy is electrifying. It can jangle the nerves, so cleansing and grounding exercises should be as much a part of the daily routine as the drinking of water.
It is a universal force, as well. We may pick up on others’ energy more than usual, so a creating a bubble of light around us before bed, and again, when we start our day can be a comforting psychic hygiene practice.
On December 21 we will have the Great Conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn in Aquarius.
We are stepping foot firmly into the New Age, the Age of Aquarius. Ideally, this time consists of a individuals developing their own opinions and joining together for the good of the whole.
Here is a link to a talk I gave recently on the Great Conjunction of 21 December 2020: https://youtu.be/eY4GVLqnOq4
Each person brings their own gifts and abilities to the party.
The Lunar Eclipse will help us to align with what is True for us. We will be able to let go of that which is just “sound and fury, signifying nothing.”
We can discern what IS significant for us. We will be able to identify, with Neptune moving direct, what we do want to attract into our life experience.
The mind is the great attractor. It is of paramount importance to keep an eye, a heart, and the gut on what is going on in the mind and to have responsibility for the thoughts that are being entertained therein.
Soothe the mind.
Listen to and Trust the Intuition.
This is a Mutable Lunar Eclipse, so Easy Does It.
NEW SCORPIO MOON 2020
The New Moon takes place at 12:07 AM EST on 15 November 2020 at 23 degrees Scorpio.
The new Moon makes a pleasant sextile to Saturn, Jupiter and Pluto in Capricorn.
We have the third of three Jupiter/Pluto conjunctions in Capricorn.
At this new moon there is an embodiment of optimism and self-empowerment. Jupiter says I can do it and my intuition is telling me how to do it!
Pluto says I am going to do what is in my personal power to get started with – or to continue on with.
Mars is finally direct at 15 degrees Aries. Mars is the lower octave of Pluto, Scorpio’s ruler. Both Capricorn and Aries are Cardinal signs. They like to begin things.
We can trust the internal power source to move on ideas, visions and plans that have been gestating during Mars retrograde.
Scorpio is a fixed sign. It will stick with it once a decision has been made to move ahead.
Scorpio, a water sign, will know when it FEELS right to act. Jupiter in its rulership of Sagittarius, gives an intuitive boost.
When wanting to feel courage and empowerment, I like to run a list of actions and ways of beings I already know how to do and or have accomplished to remind me that I am capable of action and capable of manifesting my vision.
I start with the fact that I got up that morning. I made the bed, I showered, I ate a meal, I wrote in my journal.
Then I can say, wow! I’ve been up for an hour and look at all I have done for myself already!
There are many things that are going on in the outside world that am seem beyond our control.
It is highlighted at the moment, but this is always the case.
There is something that we can work on though. The time of the Scorpio new Moon is a great time to focus on what is within our power to envision, to change, to manifest. We do have the power, if we are willing turn our attention to it, to find our own best and most comfortable responses to circumstances. Responsibility – the ability to respond – is a good one quality to keep in mind.
We do have choices. We may not always like the choices, but we do have them. When I remember I have choices about how I act, speak and respond, that no one is making me… I regain/retain my personal power, agency and authority.
There are constraints across the globe at the moment. There are constraints in my town. I can embrace them and find ways to flourish within them.
At this time we have access to the why – why we have been thinking and acting in certain ways.
We will be able to go toward empowering behaviors, habits and relationships. We can move into thoughts, behaviors, habits and relationships that are most true for us. When we embody what is true for us – what feels right in our instinct and intuition, we are empowered.
Keep in mind the threefold symbol of Scorpio: the Scorpion who is nimble and deadly close up and in the ground, the eagle, who has a wide view of the lay of the land. It is strong, powerful, and sees the big picture. Finally we have the Phoenix who is magical and is willing to dive into the depths, risking its very life, to experience the transformation and subsequent rebirth.
All power to each soul on the path, embodying the human experience in all of its multilayered richness.
If we can’t go out, we can go within!
Lots of love, Lydia
