Well we certainly have an interesting full moon right now, don’t we? I don’t know about you, but communication and all things related to it have been at the forefront for the last day or so, and on top of that, emotions have been running high for many people. I’ve also had people tell me that it feels like a Mercury retrograde. Let me explain. Mercury has been conjunct, or blended with, the Sun during this full moon, and the moon is in Gemini, which is ruled by Mercury. The aspect that is present, which is present at every full moon, is an opposition. Thus we have a Mercurial Moon in opposition to where Mercury is in the sky right now, so there’s a heavy emphasis on tense communications. There’s also the fact that in traditional astrology Mercury is not in a strong place when its in Sagittarius. Mercury is known as being communicative and adaptable, while Sagittarius is known for its singularity and focus, so it becomes clear why this is generally true. When you add the energetic distortion of the full moon to the mix, you arrive at a very tense full moon. I have taken a step back from social media and have treaded very lightly when it comes to conversations for the last week or so because of this, and this has allowed me to perceive how others have been handling it, and I’ve seen a lot of stress and tension, and particularly out of control emotions. I’m a firm believer in “Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law,” so this is something that I perceive, not something I judge, but it has reminded me how important it is to keep my mental energy clear as I go through life. I also take comfort in the fact that from a communication perspective things will be quieting down in the near future, which will bring peace to everyone.
We are moving forward faster as things move through Sagittarius, so it would be wise to remember this so things don’t fall through the cracks. The good news is that the more organized you are, the more you can get out of this period of time. However, if you’re disorganized, you may find this time very challenging. You may also want to make sure you stay disciplined in order to stay true to your goals rather than allowing yourself to get distracted by passing interests that waste time. Winter is around the corner, and it is at this time that we can take stock in what we have and how that will impact the upcoming Winter. This is the season of tying up loose ends and making plans for the next year to come. By riding the rocket ride of time, we can give ourselves a second gust of wind. However, if we don’t pay attention to our physical health, this time period can leave us exhausted, so it would be wise to make sure you’re eating correctly, getting plenty of regular sleep, and drinking plenty of water. In a few days we’ll be out of the orb of influence of this full moon, and things will return to a greater normal state. Well, normal for you, that is.
