This Week in Astrology — Full Moon in Gemini

Awakening you to the Archetypal Movement during the week ahead.  The purpose of this blog is to make you aware of the energy available astrologically, for the purpose of spiritual and personal development.

On December 3rd, 2017 the Moon in Gemini will be opposed the Sun in Sagitarrius both planets square the planet Neptune in the constellation of Pisces.  Creating a sense of tragedy or comedy, depending on the perspective and understanding of the individual.  This will occur 8 hours after Mercury stations retrograde, conjunct Saturn signifying a reward or discipline awarded to an individual.  Depending on the houses that this happens in your chart.

The Sun is in a fire sign, Sagittarius where it is comfortable being fire and creating more fire.  The Moon in Gemini can be the balance of just the right amount of air and moisture to maintain the fire or if unchecked could blow the flame completely out, forcing one to create from scratch all over again.  This is the energy we are dealing with during this Full Moon.  Understanding the why is important during this full moon transit.  If we are moving through life unconsciously, meaning we have no actual why then this full moon will be a powerful time of awakening.  If we choose not to make emotional adjustments to rectify this unconscious behavior, then we will undoubtedly see discord.  Understanding and living through one’s personal truths are paramount during this time.

This Sun and Moon fall on the 11th degree of Sagittarius and Gemini,  Neptune is at 11 degrees Pisces and Jupiter are at 11 degrees in Scorpio.  All of these 11’s at one time signifies a portal or gateway, a point of transcendence.  Jupiter in Scorpio is trine Neptune in Pisces activating the illumination of deeper truths of your existence.  This may mean comforts and support externally, or this may mean an inner contentment and satisfaction in the knowledge of your truth.  You tend to see the world fully now and this could be that the truth of a situation, relationship, or decision may be hurtful.  We must learn to accept the differences in this world, as opposed to viewing differences as things that need to be eliminated, this point of view only causes more strife.

Understanding this full moon is understanding the lesson of duality, like and unlike being one, as above/so below, etc….  When we actively oppose a situation then we are only making it worse, only when we accept the opposition then can we start to find balance and peace within.  Depending on the houses that correspond to this full moon will determine the illusions in your life that must be overcome and revealed.  So the lies, deception, misinformation, loss, and disappointment is an indication, not an aberration of what needs to be done to correct those illusions in your life that will allow you to transition over into a mode of freedom.

Full Moons are the most powerful astrological transit, combined with a Mercury Retrograde conjunct Saturn, Squared Neptune brings about powerful energy shift in consciousness and physical situations.   Saturn is there making sure you are not giving into the pressure of outside forces and is also there to reward you or remind you that you shouldn’t live for the purpose of making other people happy.  The discipline that Saturn brings is not necessarily bad, it is actually a form of protection for ourselves and our capacity to make bad decisions.  One should be focusing on one’s spiritual truth above all things, but the reality is that people do not fully understand the magnitude of rejecting their spiritual reality and the subsequent consequences.

We prepare for this full moon with the transit of Mars in Libra opposing Uranus in Aries.  The question arises in the form of can we act on our higher spiritual principles(Uranus in Aries) or just simply acting on our ego’s impulse actions (Mars in Libra).  This is a shadow zone, where our fears are projected in situations, people, or occurrences.  You may have to deal with impossible people or situations, the understanding is realizing that you are projecting.  Uranus is the great awakener, so it generally brings with it changes, no matter how comfortable the ego is with those subsequent changes.   You may be on the attack or people may be on the attack for you, understanding the projection, one will immediately alleviate the problem.

8 hours before this full moon starts Mercury conjunct Saturn in Sagittarius stations Retrograde.  Realizing that your own personal beliefs are the main thing oppressing you, is a hard thing to digest and accept.  Those who seek truth have learned to keep persisting no matter the obstacle, there is no obstacle that can not be overcome, you wouldn’t know that if you were taught to give up at any challenge or obstacle.  Mercury representing our mind is ahead of us in Sagittarius, as it retrogrades it comes back and gives us the insight it has gathered ahead of us.  This information is new, and it can sometimes be overwhelming.  One must take the time out to listen to ourselves and take serious one’s visions, dreams, and inner truth.  Being caught up in what everybody else has to say will not serve you.  Pay attention to the “crazy” person, they may have the most to say during this time.  If society or the media is branding someone as crazy or misinformed, you may want to listen to that.  Mercury retrograde is new information, new information sounds crazy because you never heard it before, it’s not actually crazy.

777 Chakra Workshop — Sacral Chakra

The Svadhisthana Chakra or better known as the Sacral Chakra is second of the seven primary Chakras in Hindu Tantric thought.  It translates to “one’s own base,” describing the experiences of the first seven years of life that has created your base on a spiritual level.  As a child, you can remember yourself as a soul, ultimately the desire to be successful and loved takes over the connection to the soul and we lose it.  The part of you that wants to be identified rises up and separates itself from its soul aspect.  The more one becomes aware of itself as human the more they distance themselves from the soul.  This energy is stored in the Sacral Chakra right below the navel and above the genitals.  This area is the base of your creation, pleasure, and peace.  The svadhisthana chakra is your emotional base.   When this chakra is balanced you experience a balance of masculine and feminine energies, you are aware of yourself as a human and as a soul, and you are experiencing inner harmony.  True peace within.

The element associated with the Sacral Chakra is Water.  Water in the aspect of baptism and cleansing of any unneeded energies.  Water in the aspect of emotions and how they cause disturbances to the chakra.  One must go in and examine their emotional frequency to align the Sacral Chakra.  The Sacral Chakra is a 6 petaled lotus, the petals represent the 6 modes of unconscious emotions: affection, pity, destructiveness, delusion, disdain, and suspicion.  The emotion of affection if not examined or checked will imbalance this chakra, by expecting love instead of giving love, your masculine and feminine energy are imbalanced.  Pity is when we are emotionally unable to offer assistance to yourself or others.  Destructiveness shows up an addiction or any unhealthy habit we seem to not be able to overcome.  Delusion is any beliefs we have without superior and infallible evidence to the contrary.  If we believe things that are simply untrue and unexamined this will adversely affect the chakra.  Disdain for yourself or others is the lack of an ability to give credit or attribute worth when it is due.  Negative emotions block you from being grateful.  When we mistrust ourselves or others without any proof to do so, and basically being paranoid about the future, without any reason to.  This shows up as the cognition of suspicion.   The six petals of unconscious emotions are the waves or ripples that cause a disturbance to the original peace of mind.  The center of your being is a cool and calm ocean when we allow negative emotions to enter our being that once cool and calm ocean is no more.

“You can’t stop the waves, but you can learn to surf.” – John Kabat-Zinn

In the Muladhara Chakra, we were awakening our Kundalini, at the Svadhishthana Chakra we are making the decision to continue this process of self-discovery.   If we are truly serious about spirituality and its practices then we are ready to stop filling holes and voids of a sleeping Kundalini,  and we are ready to let go of addictions, repressed emotions, and a lack of creativity.  Now you can see why most bow out at the Sacral Chakra because past this point your personality is required to change.  Once you travel past this portal, there is no going back.   The Svadhishthana Chakra is the center of the personality, not the one you have gained through life, but the personality life has separated you from.  Your divine personality.   Our lower desires are the things we must face and examine, these things are the source of our regeneration or destruction if unchecked.

The Void

Eros was a primeval god, son of Chaos, the original primeval emptiness of the universe.  When we speak on primeval we are simply saying the first aspect of that which we call Love.  Eros represents an aspect of love that is sleep within us all.  Since Eros is sleep we look for things to take its place in our lives.  In Greek thought, there are 4 types of love: storge – familial love, philia – brotherly love, agape – selfless love, eros – passionate love – or life energy.  Eros is an aspect of love rarely addressed because it is socially unacceptable.  It is the opposite of Logos, not better or worse, just opposite side of the same thing.  Where Logos is rational, Eros is the vibration or your inner feeling towards any particular thing.  Eros is our inner desire for wholeness and psychic relatedness.  Eros is the root word for “Eroticism.”   What makes eroticism uncomfortable is that it is not socially acceptable, yet you may personally enjoy the nature of it all.

Love in this aspect is the immortal force within you that lay dormant.  Activating the Sacral Chakra is activating the sleeping Eros within.  The water element associated with this chakra represents the baptismal, cleansing powers of self-discovery.   Once you activate and balance the Sacral Chakra the things you once did to fill the voids in your life will no longer be required.

Queen of Swords (The Womb)

The Queen of Swords is highlighting the mental and emotional aspect.  When you see this card, it is saying that freedom is in the mind. So if you paid attention to my Gnosis Series, then you would understand that thought is not limited to the physical body, neither are your emotions.  So if you want independence and freedom, but mentally you feel it is impossible, you don’t see an out, you can use this card as a reminder. That thought is free and independent but if you subject thoughts simply to the physical body, you are limiting yourself.

With the Full Moon approaching there will be a great balancing in Mental and Emotional energies.  With that we should develop our own will, and use our own passions to get what we want and need.  The will and the passions will come from a Centered place if you allow To realign your thoughts and your emotions. Combine the Queen of Swords with the Queen of Wands for the Full Picture.

Queen of Wands (the eclipse cycle 2016 card)

We are learning, evolving, and changing. As we are on that process we need to learn to shed layers of old ego to fully ascend.
The queen of wands represents the old karmic ideas that we won’t let go even though they no longer serve us.
When the waters of Pisces kiss the fire of Aries, it creates a steam, and you can imagine all your stresses floating away.
I had been seeing this card a lot, but when I think about the time we are in presently, I know that it is in alignment.
This is a card that will help you shed away those layers of old ego, and emotional baggage. This is the  Eclipse card. It will carry you into Aries strong and transformed. So be well. Until next time.
Peace
