Today we have a full moon, partial lunar eclipse with the sun at 16 degrees of Gemini and moon at 16 degrees of Sagittarius. Full moons always occur when the sun and moon face each other exactly across the zodiac wheel. Opposite signs are sometimes referred to as partner signs, complimentary. For the last 18 months we've had our eclipses in the signs of Cancer and Capricorn, and the next two that we'll have (June 21 and July 5) will wrap up that cycle of eclipses, which bring up Cancer and Capricorn's themes:
Cancer: home, family, security, memory, feelings, intuition, sensitivity, emotional intelligence, how we give and recieve nurturing, food & drink
Capricorn: career, work life, ambitions, strategy, long term goals, time, mortality, physical limitations and supports, structure, pragmatism, authority and law, consequences/rewards (karma), parental figures, government, how we're viewed in the public world, title/reputation
This is the first eclipse in the next 18 month cycle of eclipses in Gemini and Sagittarius. The next will be November 30th and December 14th. So, the topics that are going be arising in a more focused and prolonged way for us to make adjustments to and fine tune are...
Gemini: local community and travel, networking, primary education, curiosity, research and learning, siblings and cousins, writing/communications, the way that we think, technological devices/internet, medicine
Saggitarius: global community and travel, higher education, philosophy and belief systems, spirituality, religion, wisdom, the human family, adventure and exploration, leisurely sports, hunting, dogs and horses, healing
These are the areas that are going to be coming up for us to find the right balance of in our lives over the next year and a half. We'll be experimenting with the right types and amounts of each of these polarities, creating the perfect formula for ourselves. However, with the northnode in Gemini, that will be the side that is more associated with our future and evolution, where as the southnode sign of Saggitarius is where we'll likely find areas that need more releasing and editing- though it will differ for each person depending on their unique birthchart. I think that will definitely be the case with the full moon in Sag this time around.
I think with the recent developments of the Covid-19 pandemic and the world wide protests around George Floyd's death, we're already seeing the interplay of Gem/Sag themes:
Less global travel, the need to stay within and support our local communities, and yet also having more sense of interconnection with the entire world (think globally act locally). Commerce and education has been disrupted, but are transforming toward online prescences and the use of new technologies. Near and far don't exist online. We're being saturated with news and media, and having to learn to be more objective and mindful, able to see both sides. We'll need to be more considerate of what we ourselves feel the need to contribute, and whether we believe what we're told by media or not. We'll have to be discerning with what we both absorb and share, and be careful to avoid gossiping, inaccurate information and preaching or judgemental attitudes. It's going to become a prime time for us to be students of DIY methods, and decide to teach ourselves versus depending on other teachers.
What other issues do you see elevating through our current events?
