Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Gemini, November 28, 2012

© Peter Kirschner | Dreamstime.com

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.

  1. Mars conjunct Saturn in 2nd good for you Diane. It’s in my 9th house I could do with monetary boosts. Never mind I may take a gamble with this lunar eclipse in my 5th house. Lottery win here I am… 🙂

    • Hey Kaz!

      Never mind I may take a gamble with this lunar eclipse in my 5th house. Lottery win here I am… 🙂

      Depending on how many tickets you buy, it probably can’t hurt! 😀 Though w/both Pluto & Mars in my 2nd, doubt if I’ll play the lottery . . . Pluto frowns on that sort of thing.

  2. I have been going over years and years of charts this last week or so, and have discovered just how batty heavy Gemini energy is for me in years to come. It is like I lose all of my Saturn grounding and try every dish on the table, only to have to spend the next Cancer/Leo season wading through the sentimentality and disappointment attached to my pretty solid mistakes. The first round found me near deported from a foreign country (long hilarious story there), and the last one led to a ten year heart-break that I very rarely discuss, a true whack to the Cancer heart! Hibernation is key it seems, not taking too much opinion on board, and just relaxing with what I know.

    Interesting annoyance for me this eclipse season is officially becoming a bank mistake statistic. Mercury was active with the last one, and is again with this one. It’s a trine so it ‘should’ smooth itself out easily enough, even if still in shadow, especially with Venus conjunct Saturn. I am one of those people who have woken up to find thousands of dollars in a bank account that isn’t their’s lol Now I have to jump through all of those wonderful hoops in having it all sorted out *sigh* As I said to my husband, wow, the Secret, or the law of attraction DOES work. Cash for nothing out of nowhere. Just a shame you could end up in prison for spending it lol Thank goodness money is one thing I never set into ritual, as this is not magic that I would lay claim to. I wonder where all of those things that people who use those tools of manifestation actually come from?

    • Well, that was easier sorted than expected. my illustrious thousands vanished by 10am, very efficient service I must say. On that note, I shall flap away into the sunset.

      Cheerio!

        • lol apparently! I did receive the most grateful after call from this poor bank worker, who was no doubt relieved that all went down completely under the radar! I also wonder what on earth goes through the minds of these people who spend those magic appearing funds? We had one story here once where a woman miraculously received 2 million in her account, and was flabbergasted when she went to prison for it. Crazy thoughts!

            Heh, not to quick on the uptake that one. Can’t even keep the interest either . . . *smirk*

      Yes, I can see where the Gemini-Sagittarius axis may give you fits w/little mutable in your chart. Strongly mutable types can do things like smoke one or two cigarettes with no repercussions. So does not work for me w/all my fixed planets. *sigh*

      Wow! What an experience! Don’t recall every doing the money ritual thing either. Seemed rather chancy to me for some reason though i know those who swear by it. Of course, I’m completely baffled by the whole Black Friday mad buying sprees too. Got way too much “stuff” already!

      • Our version of Black Monday was a stack of emails from any US company we utilise and our own version of online sales that collapsed by mid-morning lol too much traffic. It was quite humorous. We did have to shop however, as it was time for a new sofa, as I could see my old chair springs near hitting the floor whenever I do my yoga lol AND a new paint job for the internal walls. Someone will be busy over the next few weeks painting walls (that will be me), refreshing my office too which will be dandy!

        This Gemini thing, seriously! Thank goodness I know so much more astrologically than 12 years ago that the light actually dawned that there is a pattern here. I would have blamed Neptune and meandered on my way, but I can hopefully navigate a wee bit more successfully this time and use this energy more productively. I hope so at any rate 🙂

        • Hey Pixie! 😀

          New sofa AND new paint job!! OOOOH, nice! 🙂 Are you going to change up the colors? Whenever I’ve repainted, it’s usually ended up being a lighter color. I have a preference for very lightly tinted whites in shades of blues & greens . . . Pisces on the IC. *grin*

    • Hi Cristina! 😀
      My niece will be born on the 28th. Wonder what she’ll be like 🙂

      Depending on the time of day, she might have a late Taurus Moon rather the Gemini Moon of the Full Moon chart. In any case, I’m guessing she will have a vivid personality with a lively sense of humor but very stubborn . . . 🙂

  3. For myself, I am still sorting through this as it makes a conjunct my Neptune in the 6th. Adding to the Pluto/Neptune hi jinks This lunation completes a grand mutable square for me as it falls between my Pluto 0 Virgo and Sun 13 Virgo. Not a happy way to end the year. I take it as personal push to let go of a relationship that I have been trying to make work for the last six years. That person got married this past week so now I find myself having to do a Plutonian rearrangement of myself. Having Scorpio on the 7th doesn’t make letting go an easy task. As I told a friend in relationships I behave in a very Scorpio fashion, It takes allot for me to fall in love with someone however when I do it is forever. Scorpio does nothing by half measure.

      True . . . it takes time to soften the blow and accept the new reality. Sorry . . . 😦

    • Welcome greg!
      what will be the effect on “Libras”..

      In a very general way, Libras may suffer from foot in mouth when their usually tactful approach goes out the window. 🙂

  4. As an aries sun/saggie asc/taurus moon,with a partner with scorpio sun/asc/aquarius moon I find all this fixedness drives me CRAZY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! but sometimes you just got to laugh at them ha ha

    • Hey moira!

      Yeah . . . laughing is the only way to go even if what we’d REALLY like to do is strangle them. 😀

  5. This lunar eclipse falls in my 12th house,with transit Venus( my 5H ruler), transit Saturn(8H ruler)conjunct my natal Neptune(8.32degs) in my 5th house. Transit Mars,Pluto fall in my 7th house.I’m wondering how to use this powerful energy to get some answers to the questions haunting me since March.I was very close to someone who just stopped writing to me for no apparent reason in March.He has written couple of letters since then but they were b’day wishes etc.without giving any reasons for his earlier behaviour.This eclipse falls in his 5th house and his natal Venus,at 8.35 degs Gem conjuncts Moon,the apex planet of this yod,his natal Uranus,in 11th will be conjunct NN. Transit Pluto,Mars fall in his 1st house widely conjunct(5degs)his ASC.We have tight venus/neptune quincunx in our synastry which will get activated this eclipse.I’m thinking of writing a carefully-worded letter asking him for an explanation.Will it make things worse than before or can this energy be used to heal? With these quincunxes hitting his Venus hard,I’m really not sure.

    • Welcome mermaid,

      We have tight venus/neptune quincunx in our synastry which will get activated this eclipse.I’m thinking of writing a carefully-worded letter asking him for an explanation.Will it make things worse than before or can this energy be used to heal? With these quincunxes hitting his Venus hard,I’m really not sure.

      Stressful Venus-Neptune aspects such as the quincunx make it quite difficult to escape Neptune’s illusions, sad to say. That said, it never hurts to ask for clarity . . . at least that way you stand a chance of finding out something. If he doesn’t respond that also lets you know perhaps moving on would be a good idea. 😦

      Good luck!
