Total lunar phase lasts 51 minutes.
This Full Lunar Eclipse in Gemini follows the partial Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius that occurred on November 25, 2011, click here for more on that eclipse.
Eclipses are signposts indicating new directions in life, both personally and globally.
Full Lunar Eclipse in Gemini means Mercury Rx (retrograde= re-evaluate, revise, re-invent) is Lord of the Eclipse. The energies of the eclipse degree will remain active for several months after the eclipse, as other planets make aspects to the eclipse degree.
Lord of the Eclipse, Mercury Rx adds to this delayed release of eclipse energy.
Mercury Rx at the time of the eclipse is on the decan of Jupiter, bringing a sense of hope and faith in the future for us personally (micro) and globally (macro). Mercury Rx is trine the newly direct Uranus. (Uranus turns direct 7.5 hours prior to the eclipse.)
It is worthy of note that Mercury in revision, trine Uranus going direct will shift intuitions, advanced soul growth is particularly acute for this eclipse. The mind and how we communicate is covering all the bases.
Mercury Rx is in Sagittarius, and rules both Gemini and Virgo.
During a Full Lunar Eclipse, the Earth (the material world, work and wealth) shadows the Moon (emotions, fluctuation, security).
The Earth is receiving the light, while the moon is not. For this reason, material world issues will be called to the foreground and are in the middle of a compromise.
This compromise lies between higher visionary ways of seeing / thinking, and being actively in service to others * (solar) ;
versus counter-productive fluctuating emotions, scattered thinking regarding health, work, and personal responsibilities (lunar).
* note: this is the North Node of Destiny Path*
Some interesting polarities: Sun on the decan of Mars, opposite (compromise) the Moon on the decan of Venus.
Solar Mars is ego, male energy, and it is in a transpersonal sign and house – in compromise – with Lunar Venus, female, emotional energy in a personal sign on a social house.
Sun is quintile (creativity expressed, the spirit quest) Neptune and Chiron – this is an amazing healing vibe ! In addition, Venus is quintile Uranus giving art and love an edge of maverick intuitive expression ~ what a fabulous way to go direct, yes ? !
Sun and Moon are both square Mars in Virgo on the decan of Saturn. Mars and Saturn work well together. Saturn focus is good for crazy Martian energy, it gives stamina, tact and self-discipline to power.
Mars in Virgo with a Saturnian flavor adds stamina to detail work and thinking – in square to eclipse energies, with Mercury Rx trine Uranus direct, expect self- examination & wild card / lightning bolt brainstorms.
Where will you be feeling the eclipse energies ? Look for the Gemini / Sagittarius axis in your natal chart.
Where will you be feeling Uranus direct ? Look for the house of Aries in your natal chart.
Here’s a very general guideline:
1/7 = self/others
2/8 = mine/yours
3/9 = learning/teaching
4/10 = home/career
5/11 = personal will/ will for others
6/12 = personal health & work/ universal health & service
Planets in your natal conjunct the eclipse point of 18 degrees Gemini and any aspects to that point will feel a strong influx of eclipse energies, and look in the future to planets crossing this degree for more incoming eclipse vibes…
find and fulfill your destiny~
