This Full Moon in Gemini is happening whilst Mercury is also in retrograde. Mercury is the ruling planet of Gemini. Mercury is therefore the planetary ruler of this Full Moon and it is also the planet for communication. Therefore, this Full Moon wants us to be careful with our words. The vocabulary we choose has the power to cut deep and can either elevate or wound the people we converse with. It also means that there is massive potential for all forms of communication to go completely haywire, ending up in misunderstandings of epic proportions. So its important to keep in mind that what you hear during this time may not be the entire truth, as it is likely that the information has mutated and been blown out of proportion.You may also be at the receiving end of harsh words or insensitive comments, so remain a little guarded and calm and try to look beyond the spoken words to find the true meaning. Those with planets in their birth charts of Gemini, Sagittarius, Virgo or Pisces will feel the effects of this Full Moon most strongly.
This Full Moon also brings us the energy of great cosmic beginnings and rebirth. This is a perfect time for focusing on new ideas, projects and plans that you have been pondering. During this energy, we are being shown the steps that we can take to manifest what we desire into being. Because Gemini is ruled by Mercury, we are reminded to focus on the planning stage of things right now and to put our energy into creation rather than birth. Being stuck between where we are and what we desire will create some bittersweet feelings during this Full Moon. The key is to remember that we have the power to manifest great things, and that what we see in the here and now isn’t what we have to continue to manifest.
During this time, we should take a step back from current situations and issues to gain a different perspective. It is more important to observe rather than react to things that are happening around us. The Full Moon will always bring up “stuff” you need to clear and in the current sign of Gemini you could see sparks flying due to people being two faced or playing devils advocate. The Full Moon may bring tears so you can release what you are holding onto and to give you an opportunity to change things. The energy in the current sign allows you to transcend any emotional upset but you need to examine what is not working and make the necessary changes to be in alignment with what makes you happy. Use this Full Moon to reflect on your life journey, if it’s not what you want then use the current energies to manifest the changes you would like to see.
Also remember that your intuition and psychic abilities are heightened during a Full Moon.
