Full Moon in Gemini: The Busier the Better

If you want something done, ask a busy person.
~ Benjamin Franklin 

Today, December 6, we have a Full Moon in the mutable air sign of Gemini the Twins. Gemini is the consummate talker and multi-tasker, the ultra-communicator, the perennial student. When you come into contact with a typical Gemini Sun, Moon, or Rising Sign, it is highly likely that you’ll be dealing with someone who talks, writes, or networks for a living. They will either make a career of it, or they’ll spend so much time in the communication realm that you will feel moved to suggest they do it professionally.
Information is pure food for Gemini – gathering it, synthesizing it, and re-distributing it. During this lunation, and in effect over the next two weeks, we are being asked to do all the talking, number crunching, data analyzing, running around, and community connecting that we can get our fill of. Whether you’re doing it at office holiday parties, telephoning from your car, or reaching out from home via laptop, no matter. Right now, people need people, and they need a lot of connections to make things happen.

If you’re self-employed, in marketing, or entrepreneurial, this is a great period to send out a newsletter promoting your services, or a greeting to amp up your presence with clients. If you’ve got a blog, be sure to post; if not, consider readying one to launch at the start of the new year. If you're a social media user, experiment with new ways to make the most of your online presence.

The Incredible Wonder Woman / Superman

Keep in mind that next month, Mercury the messenger planet turns retrograde, sure to cause snafus when it comes to communication. The exact date is January 21 but the airwaves can get wonky up to ten days prior. Therefore, we would do well to get our applications filed, our year-end paperwork completed, our travel arrangements booked in the month of December. At the very least, do your due diligence and information gathering sooner rather than later.

I know, I know – we are all so busy already with Christmas and shopping and family and finishing up school semesters and, and, and. Well, lucky for us, Gemini is the sign of the Twins and that means four hands instead of two. You’ll be able to rub your tummy and pat your head at the same time to get things done quicker than quicksilver, faster than the speed of Hermes (the Greek equivalent of Mercury, ruler of Gemini). So get your track shoes on, and make sure they have little wings attached to the back.

Take note that it's also a great month to do the footwork and/or execute on a plan for major purchases such as a new computer, new cell phone plan, or new car. Surely you’ll come across a lot of great deals between now and the second week of January, so keep your super-keen ears pricked, mercurial Twin-style, for all those advertisements buzzing through the airwaves.

Change or Stay the Same? The Pluto-Uranus Square Continues

Also during this lunation cycle, peaking on December 14, we have another round of the cardinal Pluto-Uranus square. This play between outer planets, which began June 2012, will complete in March 2015. By that time, you will see that you, your life circumstances, and the world around you look pretty much entirely different than it did three years ago! Surely by now you’re seeing the signs. These two outer planets have sparked tremendously evolutionary change within and without. It essentially boils down to conservative power-hungry forces (Pluto in Capricorn) challenging the need to individuate, rebel, change, and progress (Uranus in Aries). Somehow, we have got to integrate these seemingly incompatible influences. How?
My sense, since this is an "in-progress" square aspect (rather than a more encompassing opposition or conjunction), is that there is a theme of changing within the system, rather than a complete and total meltdown of existing structures. I feel that change-agents and revolutionaries are being called to work more closely with the old-guard to transform it, and to get the credentials and degrees and licenses needed to be respected. We will see a new breed of authority and leadership emerge.

Are we part of the solution or part of the pollution? ~ Michael Franti

This is different than the revolutionary period of Pluto conjunct Uranus in the mid-1960’s, when a vastly different perspective seeped into society on all levels. Now, those progressive values and ideals set into motion 40+ years ago need a facelift. The more we resist this upgrade, the more we may fall behind and risk spending the next two to four decades lamenting about the way things were or complaining about how things should be. So do what you need to do to get on board with the solution, implementing changes your life is asking you to accept, partake of, or spearhead. In short, YOU make it happen!
