Normally the Full Moon in Gemini is a fun time when we have a few laughs and enjoy the feeling of relief that comes from having survived another Scorpio season. This year the Full Moon is a lunar eclipse at 06° 47′ Gemini on November 28 at 06:46 AM PST and is caught up with the likes of Saturn and Pluto . . . real wet blankets, both of them.
The lunar axis is part of a Yod with the Moon in Gemini and Venus conjunct Saturn in Scorpio sextile Mars conjunct Pluto in Capricorn as the base. The Sagittarius Sun is on the midpoint of the base. As I see it, those who use humor to wound through witty, smart remarks like Gemini or bully others and call it “horse play” or “rough housing” like Sagittarius will be called to account rather harshly. Jupiter in Gemini, widely conjunct the Moon, is probably not going to be much help either because he is more likely to egg the perpetrators on rather than ask for restraint. Jupiter doesn’t do restraint worth beans.
It is the base of the Yod I find most interesting, combining Venus, Mars, Saturn and Pluto. Some may find Venus conjunct Saturn in Scorpio daunting but personally I prefer to use the term “sobering”. Not a light, fluffy pairing, that’s for sure but very, very loyal and committed. Mars conjunct Pluto in Capricorn is a major powerhouse, no two ways about it. They can literally move mountains if you consider Pluto’s relationship with atomic energy. Adding Venus and Mars to Saturn and Pluto’s mutual reception relationship and the possibility exists to translate the power and grace of those two outer planets into the personal realm . . . barely. Relationships forged under the aegis of these four planets are going to endure, one way or another. There is always the capacity when Scorpio and Pluto are involved to be very, very good or very, very bad. Context and attitude will make all the difference. Shoot for non-judgmental with as few expectations as is humanly possible.
To make things even more interesting, Chiron in Pisces creates a T-Square with the Sagittarius Sun opposing the Gemini Moon. If you have personal planets and/or the Ascendant from 5° to 6° in the mutable signs, there is a good chance of having your vulnerabilities exposed. Whilst this may eventually bring healing, it might be very painful in the short term . . . not fun.
Uranus in Aries is on the scene via a trine to the Sagittarius Sun and sextile to the Moon in Gemini. It also has Saturn in Scorpio looking over its shoulder still because the inconjunct remains within orb. As long as we treat others with respect we will be able to access the brilliant inspiration of Uranus aspecting the luminaries. Something to be thankful for is the waning square between Uranus and Pluto lessens the tension between those two . . . we have enough to deal with as it is.
Mercury, Gemini’s ruler, is now direct in Scorpio and is essentially unaspected this time, allowing it to act as a free agent. Penetrating insights are the gift of Mercury in Scorpio and we can all use some of those to process the thoughts and feeling this lunar eclipse will bring to the surface. Mercury is still moving slowly but at least the rascal is going forward once more!
Something else we can be thankful for is Neptune in Pisces is not directly involved with the other power players. It is still trine to Ceres in Cancer, a quietly compassionate, nurturing energy content to aid those in need of help with little fanfare.
We can still enjoy the upbeat, lively energy of this lunation as long as we take care to respect other people’s beliefs and feelings. Laughter can heal as well as harm. If you are one of those who respond to the Scorpio-Capricorn sextile, then be sure to use those energies for the highest good too. Take the high road, everyone, and enrich your life.
On a personal note: All the Scorpio-Cappy action ends up focusing on my natal Jupiter in Scorpio square Saturn in Leo . . . looks like it’s time to review what that square means once more. Hints of improved income from Mars conjunct Pluto in my second though how it will be channeled thru my twelfth house Jupiter I can’t see at the moment. Venus in Scorp is exactly square my natal Saturn with the first pass of Saturn squaring my natal Saturn coming soon. I am curious to note the differences of this cyclical Saturn transit post Second Saturn Return. In general one grows less attached to outcomes at this point in one’s life . . . at least I seem to be.
