DECEMBER 2, 2017

Dear Friends,
The last Full Moon of 2017! What do you need to know? This Full Moon in Gemini is all about communication. It is ruled by Mercury, the Planet of communication. Mercury went retrograde at the last degree of Sagittarius at the moment of this Full Moon. Last minute stuff to be dealt with. Changes in plans! Testing your ability to adapt and adjust. The need to be flexible and in good spirits. Words, words and more words. Measure your words carefully and think good thoughts.


With the sign Gemini, curiosity is developed, which brings learning, versatility, and choice. The experiences ruled by the Gemini house in your chart require the greatest flexibility. This sign thrives on change, because variety offers food for thought, which develops objective thinking patterns. Curiosity is aroused, which motivates you to seek out new experiences having educational value.  Versatility and adaptability are needed now. Learn and make new connections.

The power to relate to others is this sign’s greatest concern. Beauty, balance, harmony, equality, and justice are important where this is in your chart. This New Moon will let us know where we need to bring things into balance. Social skills and gracefulness goes a long way. All lessons of Libra involve the realization and integration of opposites, particularly those contrasts found within personal relationships. The primary purpose of this sign is one of sharing—sharing ideas, sharing experiences, sharing your life—with others. The house that Libra is on in your chart is where you need to develop a healthy balance between personal goals and respect for the goals of others. Libra shows where you need relationships, which offer feedback.

At the time of this Full Moon, Mercury, the ruler of Gemini, is in 29 degrees of Sagittarius retrograde.  Mercury retrograde is joined with Saturn. Saturn’s last day in Sagittarius is the 19th. We are getting the last and final words from Saturn as it prepares to leave and move into Capricorn for 2 ½ years. Mercury will be retrograde from December 3rd until the 22nd. This Full Moon in Gemini is bringing some important information that we need to know and work on.  The Sun is 11 degrees Sagittarius lining us up with truth. The Moon is Full at 11 degrees Gemini giving us the words to explain it all. Neptune is at 11 degrees of Pisces square to the Sun and the Moon revealing what has been hidden. Then to top it off Mercury has been sitting with Saturn since the beginning of the month and goes retrograde right at the Full Moon. Mercury goes direct at 13 degrees Sagittarius on the 22nd. By the time, Mercury catches up with Saturn again Saturn will have moved into Capricorn. This will happen on January 13th at zero degrees of Capricorn. That is when you will know what you need to know. Venus is in Sagittarius bringing some optimism and she catches up with Saturn on Christmas Day at zero degrees Capricorn. There is a lot to be thankful for.
This is a symbol of the balance which every individual must maintain between the compulsions of the social milieu on which his well-being depends and the necessity that he exercises his fledgling wings on every possible occasion. Like the slave girl trying patience of her mistress as she dares, Man must speak out to life with an almost spiritual impudence in order to have any character at all. Personality here is refined as it risks its very being to be what it as yet has still to become. The keyword is GROWTH.  When positive, the degree is a high gift for taking personal advantage of every new situation in experience, and when negative, a joy in pure dissatisfaction.         “Sabian Symbols” Marc Edmund Jones
