Welcome to the Full Moon in Gemini which waxed at 7:05 PM EST. The Moon, representing our feminine nature, the emotional side of ourselves that drives our fears, loves, and desires in the sign of Gemini. Gemini is masculine mutable air. It is the “I think” of the zodiac, ruled by Mercury the ancient god of communication. Mutable signs are adaptable and are often the buffer between strong opposing forces. Air signs are intellectual and Gemini’s airy aspect helps to calm those strong emotions typically brought on by a full moon. The Gemini Moon is fascinated by social interchange. With 12th house energies, this flexible Gemini Moon helps us face our hidden enemies, those negative emotions that sometimes get the better of us, like getting sucked into someone else’s drama… be still, be quiet!
Lots of aspects to this Full Moon including the opposition with the Sun and Saturn, the trine with Mars and Jupiter, and the sextile with Uranus.
The oppositions are obviously when the planets involved are at opposition sides of the wheel, and at odds with each other, creating challenges and both begging for attention or expression. As long as we give the planets involved their time in the sun, we can maintain a simple balance. The Sun represents the masculine side of our nature, our ego and basic character. In Sagittarius, the Sun is out front, sometimes brutally honest which might not be the way the Gemini Moon has in mind, seeing as though she prefers to be the diplomat of the two. With 6th house energies, the Sun has good intentions but prefers to think of what it has to say as being for our own good, as opposed to the Moon’s coddling ways.
Saturn is the planet of limitations and structure. Sitting with the Sun in Sagittarius, Saturn sticks to integrity as being her driving force. Saturn has little patience for sentiment. With 6th house energies here, once Saturn starts picking, the Moon’s sense of diplomacy might not stand a chance.
Mars is the planet of assertiveness, passion, and lust, our willpower, even sexual drive. The trine with the Moon softens Mars a bit and makes working with others easier, and in Aquarius, Mars has an inner drive to improve and reform those around him and helps to motivate and inspire others to do the same. With 8th house energies, Mars concentrates on the nitty gritty which helps the Gemini Moon pay more attention to what’s important.
Also trine with the Moon is Jupiter, the planet of good luck and expansion. Unlike Saturn, Jupiter brings abundance and freedom, as opposed to restrictions. Jupiter is in Libra which rules beauty and charm making Jupiter a natural diplomat working with the Gemini Moon to bring about change softly. Jupiter however focuses on our career or what we do for financial security.
Last but never least is the sextile with Uranus. The sextile is considered a beneficial aspect, and Uranus represents change and uniqueness, our sense of independence and unconventionality. In Aries, Uranus is a take charge kind of energy able to loosen up the most stringent personality which helps the Gemini Moon’s goal. Uranus in Aries is great at bringing out the best qualities in people, shining a light on hidden talents; innovative and bold. With 10th house energies, Uranus is insightful with jobs and careers and may help you see things differently than you did before, giving you a new perspective on what to do with the rest of your life.
Today in the Hebrew is the 15th of Kislev. As we remember from the New Moon, the month of Kislev is the month of Chanukah, the Festival of Lights. I was reading on the Chabad.org site on the month of Kislev, and found for the daily thought it read, when a philosopher sees a miracle, they look for a natural explanation, as opposed to the optimist who sees nature and looks for the miracle. The Gemini Moon, being the diplomat that she is would likely play the part of the optimist, and would attempt to bring the philosopher and the optimist closer together, just as one would suggest to the debate over religion versus science. Science hasn’t dis-proved the existence of a G-d, anymore than religion has dis-proved science. Rather, in many ways, science and quantum physics has offered a more viable explanation for why faith works. But in order for it all to make sense together, man has to accept his position in the greater scheme of things, as being more than a hunk of flesh destined to die. If science has taught us anything, considering how little of our brain we utilize, we are all much more powerful than we currently understand, and that’s just the reasoning of the natural mind, the philosopher. But if I look at the natural man, and comprehend his higher potential, I can more clearly see his divine nature, more of the miracle.
I sat last week and had a long conversation with a 10 year old who proceeded to sit herself down and meditate…asking her where she learned it or who taught her to do so…no one – it was instinctual, maybe not a miracle per se, but certainly impressive from a spiritual nature.
Mysticmamma.com says the Gemini Supermoon, “calls us to hold a high vision for our collective future and brings the gifts of expansion in the mental realms and in the fields of communication so that we can better express and share our deepest truth.”
‘Here we see only the very beginning of a process in what we might also call ‘the upper chamber’ of consciousness where the creative power of the spirit can be received and assimilated …Stressed here is Creative Integration.’
“His interpretation of the core message of this symbol — the integration of spiritual and mental — calls us not to abandon our values, but to bring our instinctive responses more fully into harmony with our higher spiritual perspective.
Whether we believe it or not, the creative power of the spirit and mind IS a miracle, and has the ability to CREATE miracles every day. The Art card in the Thoth Tarot from the New Moon dealt with solve and combine, the integration of higher consciousness with our natural person, or the Holy Guardian Angel with the lower being. The energy of this Full Moon further opens us up to that realm of possibility.
The month of Kislev is ruled by Jupiter whose hebrew letter is the Gimel. Gimel symbolizes abundance and prosperity, evidenced by its’ structure; the letter vav and the letter yud, connected at the bottom. Livekabbalah.org says the letter vav symbolizes the spiritual channel that connects us to the upper worlds where abundance then flows out into our world, much as the concept of manifesting that which you focus upon.
Today is a special day, not only because this Full Moon being considered a supermoon, but it’s filled with connections, which are no coincidence. Falling on December 13th, the letter gimel takes us to the 13th path on the Kabbalistic tree of life connecting the highest sphere, Kether which is the crown, with Tiphareth which is beauty, but includes Daath along the way which is knowledge. Only the aleph and bet are the other letters having access to Kether. Kether accesses ain soph aur, limitless light. It is the glowing ball of light in the kabbalistic cross ritual. The angelic being associated with Kether is Metatron, considered by tradition to be the only angelic being to have once been human, Enoch. In Kabbalah, angelic beings are expressions of the highest forms of the spheres they represent. Metatron is that which fully connects the divine with humanity. Numerologists suggest 13 is a karmic number bringing about upheaval so that new ground can be broken, but using that power for selfish reasons can bring about destruction, just as the power of Sagittarius being central column energy having both the power of giving and receiving as one being dependent upon the other. Betemunah.org states that 13 is the number that bonds multiplicity into oneness. In the Hebrew, the word for one is echad, as in God is one. Echad is Aleph, chet, dalet, 1-8-4 equals 13. God is love, or in hebrew, ahavah, aleph, hey, bet/vet, hey, 1-5-2-5 equals 13!
Kether represents the will of G-d; the will for oneness. Just as in the message of the pearl, we are all here for a purpose, but part of that purpose is remembering who we are. Tiphareth is the sphere of beauty and represents where we express our highest good. The divine name for the sphere of Kether is Ehyeh, “I AM.”
It is one of the most famous verses in the Torah. Hayah means “existed” in Hebrew; ehyeh is the first person singular imperfect form and is usually translated in English Bibles as “I am” or “I will be” (or “I shall be”), for example, at Exodus 3:14. Ehyeh asher ehyeh literally translates as “I Am Who I Am.”
The letter gimel and the 13th path are represented by the High Priestess in the Thoth Tarot. Aleister Crowley said the High Priestess represented the Moon in her higher aspect, the aspect that joins the human to the divine.
“Purity is to live only to the Highest; and the Highest is All be thou as Artemis to Pan! Read thou in The Book of the Law, and break through the veil of the Virgin!”
DuQuette, Lon Milo. Understanding Aleister Crowley’s Thoth Tarot (p. 102). Red Wheel Weiser. Kindle Edition.
She is not just the archer, but the lunar goddess huntress who hunts by enchantment, for her bow is actually a 3 stringed harp.
According to the Sandyanastasi teachings, areas the 13th path can help you include:
“Accepting yourself as part of God, and therefore good and worthy
Being able to release yourself, altering your consciousness as you might do through drugs, but achieving this state without them
Improving your ability to project your thoughts; empowerment leading to fulfillment
Omniscience; recognizing your link to all things”
The musical note is G which translates to sol which is 741 hz on the solfeggio scale.
Please enjoy a meditation on the High Priestess card while tuning into the 741 hz on the solfeggio scale; allow your mind to take in the images on the card… let subconsciousness guide your thoughts so that it can respond to the symbols of the card. Allow your mind to flow along the chain of ideas that are awakened making note of them for special insights into this path in your life.
