May 28 to June 4, 2015  Visible planets: Morning: none Evening: Venus, Jupiter, Saturn

timezonesFull Moons bring light to dark, illuminating what has been hidden, or in the shadows of our lives and consciousness. On a full Moon, we experience the Sun and Moon aligned in what is called a “planetary” opposition; one celestial body opposes the other at specific, and opposite, points along the ecliptic plane of the Earth’s 360° orbit around the Sun. The tropical zodiac’s twelve equal 30° astrological signs delineate the heavenly backdrop – as seen from Earth – giving us a star-studded map from which to chart the movement of the Sun, Moon and planets as we make our yearly journey around the Sun, providing us with the sign and degree of each and every new and full Moon of every solar and lunar month.

Sagittarius1Each full Moon of every year takes place in consequential order, sign to sign, season to season. And the zodiac signs of the Sun and Moon in each and every full Moon of any given year are always opposite each other. Thus, at the time of this week’s Gemini-Sagittarius full Moon, which takes place on June 2nd @ 10:18 am MDT, the Sun will be at 11°49’ Gemini and the Moon will be at 11°49’ Sagittarius.

Gemini1And so, what does that mean? It means that this full Moon energetically connects the Gemini-Sagittarius polarity, polar opposites of the mind and mental plane. Gemini is the inquisitive, curious gatherer and communicator of information and ideas. Sagittarius is the adventurous explorer and seeker of truth and meaning, the teacher, professor, guru and avatar. Gemini is the child, Sagittarius is the sage. Gemini is the student, Sagittarius is the ascended master.

At the time of the Gemini-Sagittarius full Moon, we are called upon to use our mind and spirit in a process of mental and spiritual awakening. What are we thinking? What are we doing in relation to what we are thinking? Who and what do we listen to? How have we been programmed? Who does the programming? What are the tapes running our internal dialogs? Are they repeating? How do thoughts create emotional, spiritual, psychological reactions? Are we creating suffering for ourselves and others with our thoughts and words or are we speaking with kindness and compassion, easing pain and healing wounds?

Gemini is air and Sag it fire, and we know what happens when those two elements get together. It’s hot! Enjoy the moonlight, and explore your neighborhood. Good luck!

Aries (Mar. 20-Apr. 19) A wildly enthusiastic full Moon in Gemini-Sagittarius comes to fruition this week, illuminating the paradox between more information and less knowledge. The 21st Century human brain is super-busy with overloads of data and stimuli. The challenge today is in finding quiet, peaceful places and spaces where we can reconnect to the higher self. Consider the consequences of insanity and find your space.

Taurus (Apr. 19-May 20) How do we step off the information treadmill, still internal dialogs and discover the essential goodness and grace lying within? Quiet places and beautiful natural environments assist us in awakening the spiritual phenomena of inner peace. Are you living in too much chaos or confusion? This week’s full Moon highlights where and how you have become too busy and lost touch. Breathe, identify and amend.

Gemini (May 20-June 20) More information and less knowledge, more timesaving devices and less time. These are byproducts of the current Information [Aquarian] Age, the prophesized harbinger of knowledge and enlightenment. Meanwhile scientists work to transition the planet to the next geologic epoch – from the end of the last Ice Age [Holocene] into the Age of Man [Anthropocene]. Refrain from multi-tasking and just focus on what you’re doing.

Cancer (June 20-July 22) You may feel as if you are going in circles in the attempt to complete projects started or currently in the works. Rather than get upset and frustrated, why not choose to just accept it as being exactly as it should be in this moment? A numinous Neptune T-square to the Sun, Moon, Mars, Mercury and Saturn mandates the use of intuition and non-linear thinking. No problem, it’s your forte. Breathe deep, feel, deal and heal.

Leo (July 22-Aug. 22) A heavy dose of Gemini energy inspires thought, encourages communication and stimulates movement. Make contact with friends, catch up and share time with people you enjoy. With Mercury retrograde, a Gemini-Sag full Moon and a poignant Neptune square to a pack of planets, don’t flip out if you find yourself stuck. You’re exactly where you need to be. It’s here you will find what you’ve been looking for.

Virgo (Aug. 22-Sep. 22) Issues of communication come to a head as the Moon grows full. Good news is that you are more than willing to share your thoughts and ideas, bad news is that you don’t know if you can keep the emotional coloring out of the delivery. Challenge, rising to the occasion and facing the facts is both therapeutic and practical. After all, it is simply business, backed by responsibility. Take it one day and one thing at a time.

Libra (Sep. 22-Oct. 22) Research shows that when we’re multitasking, we actually take much longer to accomplish things, make more mistakes and increase our stress. Libras love peace, beauty, harmony and equanimity. Why not drop the illusion of getting it all done in the shortest, most efficient time possible and relax? With so much Gemini energy in the wind, gather spiritually enriching material together and read. Yeah, it’s all good.

Scorpio (Oct. 22-Nov. 21) Full Moons bring light to darkness, illuminating shadows of two opposite areas of our lives. Gemini seeks to gather and share information; Sagittarius aims to discover truth and meaning. Today we have gazillion bytes of data flying through space, cyber and otherwise. Yet, do we have more knowledge? Are we enlightened or exhausted by it all? Find your quiet space, tap into the void and re-center your center.

Sagittarius (Nov. 21-Dec. 20) In an age of acceleration, nothing can be more exhilarating than going slow. For fast action, take it easy. Focus on what is right in front of you, one thing and one day at a time. The busier we are, the more we need quiet, meditative soul time. And the Archer is no different. Find the space-time to simply sit and breathe, feel your center. It is here, in the peaceful present moment, you will find power to change what you can change.

Capricorn (Dec. 20-Jan. 19) How much life-time have you spent in quiet contemplation, soul reflection or deep meditation? Capricorn naturally finds comfort in the tangible, physical, material world. The world of spirit, not so much. And yet, you understand the value, payoffs and benefits of spiritual programs and a daily spiritual practice. This week’s full Moon shines light on busy-ness and calls you to escape via peace and quiet. Go for it!

Aquarius (Jan. 19-Feb. 18) A bounty of Gemini energy, including the June 2nd Gemini-Sag full Moon, may have you acting like a very excitable girl or boy, seeking entertainment and looking for fun. But with all the retrogrades and mutability, you may find yourself all dressed up with nowhere to go or there with no one there. Solutions come via a slower, calmer pace and less agitated approach. Go with the flow, refrain from upset and enjoy what comes – or doesn’t!

Pisces (Feb. 18-Mar. 20) This week’s Gemini-Sagittarius full Moon hits you front and center, heart and soul. A mutable T-square involving Neptune, Saturn, the Sun, Moon, Mercury and Mars shine illuminating light on the foundational structures of your life. Parents, children, home, family, achievements, career, social relationships and significant others dance in a retro-movie where you are the star. Watch the film. Enjoy the show. Play your part.
