The Cosmic Story: Gemini Full Moon 2018
The Truth Will Set You Free
When we walked through the Wheel's Gate of Samhain/ All Hallow's Eve a few weeks ago, we entered into the death season of the year here in the northern hemisphere. The days are getting shorter, the Dark is rising and we are finishing up old business as the holidays approach. This is the time to shed old skins and let go of the old year in a 6-week long process until Winter Solstice. This year it feels as if the veils between the world are especially thin, perhaps because our collective psyche is lost in the chaotic clash of old vs. new. We are in the tidal flow of the changing of the ages -- the tug and pull of conflicting currents. With this inter - penetration of dimensions, reality can and will begin to vibrate at a different frequency.
Believe it! Change is happening.
As we emerge out of Scorpio's deep well of emotional memories, we can release them to burn up in the Phoenix's flames. As Scorpio's emotionally instinctive S nake transforms into the Eagle's insight, there is a sudden burst of awareness as the Phoenix rises from the ashes of these transformation.
The fire sign Sagittarius follows the watery sign of Scorpio. Out of the dark depths comes enlightenment. We'll especially feel this change now that Jupiter has left Scorpio and entered Sagittarius. Jupiter in Scorpio expanded our vision so we could see our shadows -- both personally and collectively. In Sagittarius, he can help us find our truth now that we've released the old wounds that taught us our life lessons. What we do with the meaning of those lessons will be shaped by Jupiter's cosmic truths.
Jupiter brought up quite a lot of shadow material for individuals as well as the culture while he traveled through Scorpio. The first weeks after Jupiter entered Scorpio saw the Harvey Weinstein accusations and the birth of the MeToo# movement. He left Scorpio with more women winning seats in the American Congress than ever before. Women used this past year to stand up for what they believed in. And others followed.
When the Scorpio New Moon occurs at the power gate of Scorpio, it usually brings results. It is the true Samhain/ Day of the Dead (15* Scorpio), leaving us more open to the unseen real , those powers and energies which are unseen by us but which influence our world so deeply. Patriarchy has deliberately denigrated and persecuted people who are open to these unseen energies, but more people than ever are learning to listen to these messages for their personal life.
