The Full Moon was exact this morning at 7:47am here on the West Coast at 11° 40’ of Gemini. The Sabian Symbol for this degree is : NEWLY OPENED LANDS OFFER THE PIONEER NEW OPPORTUNITIES FOR EXPERIENCE. We see the strength and power intrinsic in the Potential of fresh starts or new beginnings inherent at this time. Even with Mercury Retrograde, these figurative “newly opened lands” may symbolize unrealized or unexperienced fields of endeavor on various levels; mental, emotional, physical , or Spiritual. Even the “ Supermental “ Concept which is at the Core Energy of our Heart and our Universe ( pretty heavy, huh?) is included. We are now dealing with individuality — or ego , becoming more defined and operational. Paradoxically this Full Moon and much of December 2017 is strongly influenced by the watery, ethereal, nebulous and EGO dissolving planet Neptune!! Mutable , gregarious, talkative, clever, car salesman Gemini full moon squares oftentimes deceptive savior/ Messiah Neptune in Pisces at only 0°10′ orb . What this indicates is that Neptunian Energies will be at their most occluded, depressing , even sinister. Lies , false promises, misperception, deception, loss , sorrows, paranoia, fear, disappointment, theft, fraud, scandal …..even ill defined illness are very real possibilities during this two-week moon phase.
The December 2017 Full Moon occurs within 24 hours of Mercury stationing retrograde in Sagittarius , and the Sun is also in the sign of The Archer . The opposition of the Sagittarius Sun vs. the Gemini Moon brings the element of Truth vs Lies to the forefront of our Game. What is Real and what is self -or other -caused Deception?? Gaslight ( like the Movie ) is a Keyword. Jupiter in Scorpio just trined Neptune in Pisces which softens the harsh edges of Reality with optimism, bonhommie, and Faith , but does not permit us to run away from responsibility to ourselves…And to Others. While Mercury retrograde will only foster more mischief, shenanigans, and mayhem…this Intense and Profound spiritual transit can assist in overcoming the multiple hidden dangers of this perversely deceptive full moon.
The Fixed Stars associated with this Full Moon are extremely important and are Harbingers of Enormous Benefit and Bliss …as well as great Turmoil and upheaval….dependent upon your True nature or Agenda . Liars and Deceivers Be Forewarned.
The 180° Opposition or axis formed by the Sun in Sagittarius opposite Moon in Gemini is the most powerful axis extent in astrology. Thus two opposing fixed Stars stars form another powerful axis in the Heavens above. Fixed star Aldebaran or Alpha Tauri is a Giant Orange Star at 10°02′ Gemini and is now opposing fixed star Antares at 10°00′ Sagittarius. Aldebaran is the main star of the Constellation Taurus the Bull and Antares or “ the Rival of Aries “ is a Giant Red Star and the main star of the Constellation Scorpius .These are no ordinary stars and are very prominent ….shining bright in the Night sky . They are easily recognizable and have been so since Humankind first looked up at the Mysterious yet soothing Firmament.
Aldebaran and Antares are so important in our cosmology, mythology, ancient culture , even religion , that they are known as Archangel Stars. There are four Archangel Stars, the other two being Regulus at 00°05 Virgo and Fomalhaut at 04°08′ Pisces. These four Archangel Stars are also called the Ancient Persian Royal Stars and are considered to be The Guardians of Heaven. These Sentinels mark the four cardinal points ( Capricorn, Cancer, Aries , Libra). At right angles to each other they form a Cross in the Vault of Heaven. They are also associated with the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse in Revelations ………and the Chariot Horses in the Book of Zechariah in the Christian Bible. Got chills yet??
Aldebaran is a Benefic star often associated with great wealth , prestige, optimism and honor. The Bull’s Eye of TAURUS corresponds to the powerful Archangel Michael, who is the Guardian of the East and the rider of the White Horse of the Apocalypse . This is symbolic of our sprit as it relates to our immortal souls. Antares on the other hand is a very very negative influence. It has an unfortunate influence often associated with , war, rumors of war , violence , upheaval, and destruction. The Heart of the Scorpion Constellation corresponds to the Archangel Uriel, the Guardian of the West, who rides the Black Horse of the Apocalypse . This is the figurative earthly body which our souls inhabit.
The astrological influences of Aldebaran and Antares are just like their positions in the sky, exactly opposite. They bring a Roller Coaster of extreme ups and downs in life. Their intensity can be very hard to process or to manage but after a hard fall they will lift you up again. They favor money, property, and Prestige in personal and Transpersonal arenas but also foretell of death by violence or attack….This could portend another attempt by ISIS to spread fear and poison ( Neptune) across the Western Hemisphere still reeling from the August Eclipses until late Winter 2018. It is also affecting the Unusual Weather patterns and the uptick of seismic activities in unusual non earthquake prone regions ( like Delaware) . The Moon in Gemini is now conjunct Aldebaran . This is considered Favorable for business, honor and good credit BUT conversely brings danger of calamity. The duality inherent in the Gemini Nature exacerbates these traits. GEMINI MAKE UP YOUR MIND!!! The Sun in Sagittarius the Truthseeker and Guardian Angel conjunct Antares bestows danger of False religions, insincerity in personal or spiritual matters, great honor and riches which fall hard into disgrace and ruin by forces greater than thou, military engagement , the danger of treachery, violence committed by others , suffering of groups , and strange fevers and sickness…….injuries that do not heal easily and the potential for violent death.
SO WHAT THE HECK DOES THIS ALL PORTEND????? Well this Full Moon in Gemini conjunct the fixed star Aldebaran WILL bring opportunities for increased income, business success and even wealth , along with domestic harmony and easier, more fulfilling relations with Others. However this SAME full moon squares Neptune . What this means is if you lie , deceive, manipulate or cheat , you are in for a Big Comeuppance. Liars , Thieves , and Snake oil Salesmen are more likely to to find shame, disgrace , dishonor , and ruin rather than happiness , success or the fulfillment of dreams. A powerful caveat or warning is that if in the next few weeks YOU DO FIND SOME WELL MERITED happiness and success, you must be on your toes, and stay on guard against liars and thieves and those that would steal what is rightfully yours with no compunction or guilt. This is also a Sociopath’s Moon…..
As if we need more in the mix , the polarity of the full moon as a superstructure or overlay ( imagine two pizzas on top of each other…one pepperoni…one Canadian bacon and pineapple) on the polarity of these two very different fixed stars is a very, very, rare occurrence. I don’t know about you, but I don’t believe in Coincidence. Because these stars are heavy hitters it can bring conflict. We have seen before this can result in the starting date of war, or because of the the natal charts of leaders ( Trump, Putin, Mohammed bin Salman, Netanyahu, Erdogan, Ali Khamenei, Xi Jinping, and Kim Jong Un amongst others) clashing violently with others, is that peace cannot be had unless one side crushes or destroys the other. It is an All or Nothing Transit. We are therefore in danger of a conflagration triggered by violence or false flag that can escalate to huge proportions, like the egos of some of our Leaders …..even to a world scale.
Therefore if cooler heads do not prevail with some help from the Jupiter/ Neptune Trine and the objective side of Gemini and Sagittarius it isn’t hard to imagine that a simple misunderstanding or skirmish in the Middle East, another Car or truck attack at a Christmas fair in North America or Europe , or another missile test by North Korea can spiral out of control caused by full moon squaring Neptune. This Aspect was heavily involved in activating World War II………….There is also the possibility of deliberate deception..re: FALSE FLAG LIKE PEARL HARBOR OR 911 , disinformation, CIA/ NSA/ FBI Shenanigans, , spies , double agents, dangerous foreign nationals or agents provocateurs, even very bombastic, unstable, or paranoid leaders lighting the fuse . This can cause two of the fixed Stars , or Horses to jump the fence out of their Corral and to run amok.
SO AFTER THIS WONDERFUL ADVENT MESSAGE …WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERE??? Full moon square Neptune and the Royal Stars indicate that it is imperative to be Truthful, honest to the best of your ability, freed from Hidden Agendas, eschewing manipulation and self serving behaviors to receive ANY benefit from this DEEP DEEP LUNATION. It is fairly obvious that the lighter sides of the Twins and the Archer must be stoked in order to de-escalate confrontation and to avoid conflagration . The Moon with Aldebaran can reward you with professional success and great happiness and Bliss IF YOU REMAIN ALTRUISTIC, COMPASSIONATE, AND EVEN HANDED. FAIRNESS AND TEMPERANCE ARE KEYS. The Sun with Antares FAVORS LYING, DECEIVING, AND CHEATING TO FORCE AN ISSUE OR TO GET YOUR WAY. NO SHORTCUTS WILL WORK AT THIS TIME…SORRY CHARLEY . If you , Others, or our “ Leaders” on the World Stage do act disingenuously, dishonestly , dastardly, and deceptively, or use underhanded or heavy handed methods to get their way …..Their will be Hell to Pay. This Full Moon is ultimately about TRUTH NOT “ TRUTHINESS” and will pay back ten thousand fold with failure, dishonor, disgrace , destruction and ruin. This is very serious no nonsense business because the full moon is square Neptune by the aforementioned powerful 0°10′ orb. Liars, Cheats, and Thieves may find a day of Reckoning. Pray it is not at the expense of WW3
To wrap up this verbose post please understand that the unbelievably fortuitous Jupiter trine Neptune can deflect, soften, or ameliorate the extremely dangerous potential we face with this LUNATION , along with Mercury now Rx . We embark on a spiritual quest , to uplift, repair the planet , heal the environment and ourselves in our desire to seek The Truth. This may not be so facile with the full moon square Neptune. But Enlightenment can be had . Pay attention these next few weeks to your dreams, intuitions , even visions .Meditation is Favored. Please be advised however because Neptune which rules spiritual Assistance ( along with Scorpio) is negatively aspected…. that you must look before you leap, and use your logical, rational mind to sift out the Wheat from the Chaff . Filter out the Untruths before you set anything in stone. Because this full moon can increase World Stage tensions, conflicts, suffering and injustice it is imperative that we Think Globally while acting Locally. Your own moral compass can be a guide in the desire to fight for truth and justice in a World of Untruths and Injustice. Charity and Unconditional Love are Watchwords for the Higher energies of Neptune.
Even though the danger factors in this Full Moon Chart can cause disappointment, loss and suffering, the Jupiter trine Neptune will bring Enormous Healing energies to the fore. Like a Phoenix reborn from its Ashes , we can a Achieve the Golden Age Nostradamus Predicted . Remember that it was The Angel Gabriel who came to Mary on Advent to foretell the Birth of a Savior. Whether Figurative or Literal as you so Believe …We are in Desperate need of Salvation from the Forces that Control our planet and our Destiny. We need a Miracle …and Neptune in Pisces aligned with Jupiter in Scorpio bring Common Cause for Peace* Light* Love. For the First time in almost 200 years we can turn our attentions to social justice , human rights, and the pursuit of Life, Liberty, and some long overdue Happiness. A Blessed Advent we hope. Namaste.
