Today, November 30th (exact 10.34 AM Oslo time) the moon will oppose the sun in Sagittarius, and we have 2020’s full moon and lunar eclipse in airy, chatty Gemini.
The twins are known to be social, lighthearted butterflies and opposing the energy of adventurous, happy-go-lucky, Sagittarius, the full moon in Gemini is often one to lighten the mood in an otherwise dark season.
But even though Gemini and Sagittarius are known for their light energy, eclipses do unfortunately not go so easy on us. Eclipses like to get down and dirty. They illuminate the dustiest corners of our life, and make sure all the dust bunnies are cleared and swept away. They shine a light on all that no longer needs to be present with us and forces us to take a close look at destructive patterns we may be holding. Lunar eclipses are so very potent for exactly that reason – they require us to shed. And even though this sudden and abrupt shedding can leave us feeling vulnerable, afraid, or uncertain of what is to come, this lunar eclipse also holds the promise of a brighter season coming.
Still, the current overload of airy, Gemini energy may make you feel scattered, restless, and mentally overstimulated, causing you to spend a lot of time up in your head, overthinking. But see if you can allow this potent eclipse energy to work for you, rather than against you. Being an air sign ruled by messenger Mercury, Gemini knows how to express herself eloquently, and the full moon in Gemini is the perfect backdrop for you to share your honest thoughts with the world. And even though it can be challenging at times, expressing your heartfelt truth will leave you feeling a lot more grounded and at peace than trying to keep up with those little white lies told to protect yourself. The truth may make you feel vulnerable, but if you can stay true to yourself and communicate your heart, you will soon notice how telling the heartfelt truth makes your soul expand ♡.
The time between two eclipses are also a great time for stillness and reflection, so use the two upcoming weeks wisely. Light some incense, take deep breaths, meditate, do yoga, and pay some extra attention to your inner world. As we are beginning to wrap up 2020, this is a great time to stop and reflect. Bring out your journal and ask yourself where you are holding on too tightly, and where you need to surrender and let go. And remember that if something falls away from your life at this time, it is meant to leave. Whatever comes to pass, try and hold a feeling of trust in your heart.
2020 has been a weird, challenging, year for us all and this full moon and lunar eclipse is in many ways the final dot to that energy. Change is hard for the best of us, and I think we all agree that the changes of 2020 has felt very overwhelming at times to say the least. On a more positive note it has helped us all to step out of our busy bubble and forced us to practice sitting with what is. It has given us the opportunity to slow down, just breathe and just be. But whatever has happened these past 11 months, big or small, congratulate yourself! You have soon made it through another year, and fingers crossed it will only get better from here!
And even though 2020 may not have been what you wanted, trust that it brought you what you needed. This year we have had no less than 7 eclipses, which is exceedingly rare – but I think we can all agree that 2020 has not been our average year. And eclipses symbolizing abrupt change and ending, it fits right in with this turbulent year.
Thus, see if you can have faith in the bigger picture. Trust that you always get the lessons you need for you to learn and grow. Remember that your life is a sacred journey, and that all we can do at all times is to live the best we can with the opportunities we get.
So, whatever comes up for you around this time, remember that things always arise for you to be healed. You need to feel it to heal it as they say ♡ Then open your heart for a new chapter to begin. As the energy of 2020 is slowly fading, accept, surrender, release and move on. It is time to make room for the year to come, and trust that you alone hold the keys to your happiness.
Happy full moon in Gemini lovelies!
