Full Moon in Gemini 12.12 – Wisdom, Focus, Ascension

This full moon occurs at 19 degrees Gemini, on 12 December at 05.12 UT. This is the 12.12 gateway, which brings an opportunity to complete the lessons of the twelve signs, twelve aspects of being, and become the thirteenth, the master and the One.

Keywords are illumination, intellect, focus, wisdom, expansion, big picture, communication, connections, oneness, karmic relationships, magnetic love, karmic clearing, building the foundations.

As the Full Moon illuminates the sign of Gemini, the Sun is in the opposite sign of Sagittarius, and we are called to balance these poles within us.

While the Sun is traversing Sagittarius the focus is on seeking the truth, broadening our horizons, seeing the big picture and awakening to a higher purpose. Sagittarian energy is big, bold, optimistic, impulsive, radical and adventurous.

With the Moon illuminating Gemini, the sign of the mind, intellect and communication, you are asked to balance the thinking mind with faith, hope and trust. Gemini is about the small details, sharing information, and having many conversations which could spark awareness and bring issues into focus. The Moon can shine a light into your thought patterns, why you think a certain way and why you hold the beliefs you do. This is an excellent time to let go of limiting beliefs, and to see clearly the cage of the mind and where it restricts you.

The twin stars of Gemini, Castor and Pollux, are known as the dark and the light twins. This highlights the duality of the mind, and how it can be used to uplift and inspire, or pull us down into negative thinking and a self-created prison. Once you see the chains of the mind, they can be released to dissolve into pure source energy.

The full moon in Gemini is very communicative, and this is a naturally sociable time with many connections happening. A seemingly random conversation could cause you to see a bigger picture you were not previously aware of. Likewise, higher spiritual awareness and truths could be shared in a way that is easy to understand, as expansive knowledge and wisdom is brought through in the simplest terms.

The Sun and Moon are in T-square to Neptune in Pisces, which adds watery intuition into the air and fire opposition. This creates a pressure for people to acknowledge their feelings, and the feelings of others, if they are operating from a purely intellectual space. It also creates a pressure for action-oriented people to slow down and access their intuition, before doing something rash and taking too many risks.

The T-square to Neptune symbolises the truth that, at the heart of all debates, differences and divides is the oneness of spirit. There is no need to over-complicate things; we are all One Love and One Heart.

At the time of the full moon, there is an intense aspect occurring with Venus in between Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn, conjunct by 1 degree. Venus, the Goddess of Love, beauty and abundance is conjoined with Saturn, the karmic taskmaster, and Pluto, the transformer. This is a make or break aspect. It brings a heavy, serious tone to relationships, and may bring issues to the surface which were previously suppressed. Venus Pluto is about powerful attraction, karmic soul mates, fated love and destiny. This conjunction may be too much for some relationships if they are at breaking point. It can also bring karmic soul mates into your life, so be aware what lesson they are teaching, and ask yourself if your soul needs to go down that path. There is an element of compulsion with Venus Pluto, so stay alert to damaging and toxic relationships and nurture yourself and your own power.

This triple conjunction brings material and financial concerns into focus, and grounds the energy of the air, fire and water T-square. It is in quincunx to the Full Moon in Gemini, so it could bring out problems, issues and inconvenient truths. The quincunx energy feels difficult and jarring, so be kind to yourself if you are feeling this. Now is the time to own your power, and make sure your foundations are firmly in place. Karmic patterns must be dealt with and cleared in order to move forward.

So the Gemini Moon wants to bring light-heartedness and a breath of fresh air to the heavy aspects dominating the sky at the moment, and maybe that is the perfect medicine. Set your worries aside, do something different and fun, talk to a person you wouldn’t normally talk to. Allow inspiration to strike. Big wheels are turning, and we need to be balanced in heart, mind and soul.

It is time to get serious about your role in life, with the right balance of action, intuition, pragmatism and communication. Like the base of a pyramid, this is the place from which to build, and ascend towards the starry skies.

This 12.12 gateway is like a key that can unlock a whole new state of being, by shedding mental constructs and becoming truly strong and stable in who you are.
