Welcome to Wednesday, our day brought to us by messenger planet, Mercury, and are there A LOT of messages we’re processing today.
Mercury governs the energies of Gemini and Virgo, and tonight, at 12:12 AM EST, Mother Moon will reach peak fullness in the sign of Gemini, opposing Father Sun in the sign of Sagittarius.
Gemini is the energy that is associated with our nervous system and mental states, so anxiety and repetitive thought cycles might be on the rise.
There is no shortage of information to process on this Full Moon, and you might become overwhelmed with the amount of energy required to keep up with all the conversations. We’re releasing the old ideas and opinions of our self-image, requiring us to make some necessary adjustments to our foundation, and coming face-to-face with our identity pain within relationships.
This Full Moon chart is telling me there are many things that need to be communicated - we have Eris, the 10th planet from our Sun, the Goddess of Strife and Discord, the woman who started the 10 year long Trojan War between the Greeks and the city of Troy because she threw a golden apple into a wedding she wasn’t invited to - we have her making many aspects to other planets - some harmonious, others uncomfortable. She’s calling attention to our escapist identities, our dual emotions, our structures, our values, and our power dynamics.
The karmic implications to this Full Moon are strong - whatever we say or any action (or inaction) we may participate in, will have consequences to our home and family and our relationships.
There is going to be a strong urge to escape from these conflicts - whether internal or external - we may get the urge to victimize ourselves and engage in gossip. And if you’re experiencing these emotions or behaviors, talk to your Pisces energy, your Higher Self, and remember that love always wins. Difficult conversations are difficult because they require a change or an adjustment and that is uncomfortable. We fear someone seeing us vulnerable and our Capricorn energy is telling us to remain rigid and severe within our roots. But that isn’t freedom...that is making yourself a prisoner of your own entitled mindset. We deserve to be free of mental pain, and very often that means changing your perspective.
I’m not going to sugar-coat this like I do with your Jordy’s medicine - emotional strength is KEY on this Full Moon. We need to soften our approaches to our identities and make compromises and allowances. We need to find a way to preserve ourselves and our identities that doesn’t infringe on the well-being of others, but also, that will lead to a stable and sustainable power dynamic within our intimate partnerships.
I’ve already been experiencing quite a bit of upheaval, as this Full Moon is activating my Midheaven and my IC - the top and bottom of a chart - and at times I can become the embodiment of Eris - throwing apples to incite conflict, and essentially, dramatic change. Sometimes I feel like the only individual within my bloodline that has a voice - I grew up within a family that didn’t communicate effectively - either I was ignored or I was criticized, and I grew up believing that I needed to “shut up” to be respected and loved. Unfortunately for my family, I was born with an Aries Sun and Venus, with Pluto in Scorpio in the 1st House, so part of my purpose is to spark change within my family’s power dynamics so my bloodline can have stability and security.
Conflict is a necessary aspect to human life. I have spent a good portion of my life trying not to create conflict - I have a Libra rising, so my Soul wishes to constantly bring peace and harmony to every interaction...though, this also means my Descendent - the Axis opposite your Rising Sign - is in Aries, so really, I’m the one calling the shots in relationships, and I can ruffle a lot of feathers with my warrior demeanor. There’s this idea that conflict is bad - that we shouldn’t speak up for ourselves or others because we may be abandoned and left all alone. And while I would never recommend to fight physically or berate verbally, I do recommend voicing your needs - LOUDLY. In my experience, it has only been when I am very clear and loud about my boundaries do others finally begin to listen to me. I’m not sure if it is because my natal Mercury is Retrograde in Pisces, but I apparently come across as too soft and a bit of a push-over if I am not loud and clear. So, if you need to throw some golden apples during this Full Moon, do so - be the catalyst for change within your Universe, but also, don’t forget the secret ingredient - pure love.
I hope you all have a magical day and beyond…
Sending love from my multi-dimensional being to yours…
