Gemini Full Moon Lunar Eclipse

Today we have another guest post from the lovely Electra Jung. She discusses the upcoming Gemini Full Moon Lunar Eclipse, along with some important Uranus information. In reading her words, I recognize the shared experience of many clients and friends, even though I seem somehow to be floating through this Mercury Retrograde. Closing my Facebook account at the same time I’ve delved into The Mists of Avalon and continue winterizing our house all seem to have insulated me from much of the prevailing chaos. Instead, I keep sensing such overwhelming freedom, joy, and optimism. I know they’re coming! I see, feel, hear — even smell and taste the shift. No matter how bleak the “news,” I just can’t shake my sense that everything’s gonna be not only OK … but wonderful!!

In the meantime, if you’re feeling a bit off kilter, here’s what’s happening in the sky. Thanks, as always, to Electra for sharing her wisdom and observations with us:

Gemini Full Moon Lunar Eclipse

December 10, 2011 7:36 MST

(and Mercury continues to retrograde!)

Can’t remember anything anymore!

This Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in the sign of the Twins inwardly represents the conscious mind. Mercury is the ruling planet of this lunation and continues to provide endless mental and emotional overwhelm and lack of focus though its weakened retrograde motion. …we are in a state of confusion! This full moon in the sign of the mental intellectual creates an atmosphere of depression and vulnerability as confidence and outward progress are restricted and worry sets in.

Memory and focus are the challenges to overcome. The awareness of these create chaos as we experience lack in memory, promises made and forgotten — creative thinking is challenged by dullness and lack of originality. The requirements now are for careful observation of your own re-actions toward change and conflict in your daily life.

When was the last time you had so many forgotten commitments, appointments, inability to reach someone who was previously available and on top of it all…why can’t you remember something so important a minute ago? Could you be losing your mind or just getting …dementia?

Full Moons are always about relationship with yourself and the imbalance between your ego and emotions, your will to act or re-act according to the situation at hand. Either personal, professional or spiritual, it is time to balance. The challenging interactions between yourself and others will be given the opportunity for resolution of on-going issues which seem to never reach conclusion.

Endless talking, mindless thinking, along with anxiety and the inability to sleep as you repeatedly forget and remember what direction you were heading…how you wish to express yourself: this difficult time is enhanced by negative, obsessive thinking due to the continuing retrograde of Mercury.

The true nature of a retrograde planet is to turn the energy inward indicating the time for personal retreat …a “time-out” for reflection of past actions, especially spoken words, which have led to current conditions. … and develop awareness of the rational, superficial expression used to communicate without making any real contact.

“All eclipses, whether solar or lunar, have the potential to change your circumstances. Eclipses are expressed through a crisis of some kind, whether it is a real crisis or not, it may feel very real to you. Many times a new beginning involves letting go of something from the past, whether it be a person, a relationship, an object, or a behavior. This is especially true during a lunar eclipse.”

The planetary activity is creating a lot of intense energy. The challenging interactions between yourself and others will be given the opportunity for resolution of on-going issues which seem to never reach conclusion.

The retrograde cycle now reveals the inner-need to reassess our thoughts, emotional needs and words, which have been used to remain detached and protected. This is the time to reconnect with true feelings and restructure the words and communications with others to maintain more nourishing and meaningful relationships.

Previously stated and worth re-mentioning… Full Moons can lead to illuminating insights or painful alienation due to the energetic tendency to “project.” We are to withdraw from the addiction to the continual overload of ideas, news, feedback, connecting to social networks through the modern digital age wireless communication.

From the personal to the collective, we all are faced with the need to build upon experience in some areas of life, while being open to necessary changes in others. This requires awareness. To be aware, we must stop and pay attention objectively watch ourselves in action.

Uranus stations direct

Today as Uranus re-directs at the powerful Solstice degree we will see everything accelerate. We will collectively discover our character and humanity as we face changes and continuing crises.

Most of us will resist change but change is coming never-the-less. A traditional meaning of this transit is “out with the old, in with the new”.

“You can live a lifetime and, at the end of it, know more about other people than you know about yourself.” — Beryl Markham

Uranus direct encourages a de-conditioning of ingrained social patterns and conditioning. It is now the time to become more aware of authentic selves and express unique and previously repressed originality.

We live most of our lives by habit. These habits keep us stuck in patterns that limit our experience of life. Once we detect a pattern we were previously unconscious of, we can choose differently, if we want. With awareness comes choice and with choice, we gain freedom.

[A note from Laura: Uranus is the planet that rules the zodiac sign of Aquarius. As in the Age of Aquarius. My friend Tim Glenn calls Uranus “the cosmic weirdo.” Expect some wild, weird stuff. Embrace unconventional solutions when they arrive, and please don’t be afraid to claim your freedom. 🙂 Happy Full Moon Lunar Eclipse! Thanks again to Electra for this post.

Leo New Moon

Another guest blog post from the lovely Electra Jung of http://signsfromabove.net. She emphasizes opening the heart wide, and boy do I feel it! Intense, magical times right now. I’m not sure I’ve ever felt such polarities on this planet –so much high vibe love and light, and so much scrambling and desperation from the fear mongerers and gangster-banksters. What an incredible time to be alive! Here’s Electra’s Leo New Moon message:

Leo New Moon

Love is… a state of being

“Love is not so much something I do as something that I am. Love is not a doing but a state of being – a relatedness, a connectedness to another mortal, an identification with her or him that simply flows within me and through me, independent of my intentions or my efforts.”– Robert A. Johnson

“Leo is the power of love and the lion-hearted courage to remain open hearted and mindful of your personal involvements and the decisions you make along the way…every day. Watch yourself…observe your own stubborn behavior…as your consciousness continues to shift… be in this moment of awareness… choose to shift with love.” –Electra Jung

The spiritual path doesn’t require us to get anything. It’s a process of opening to new dimensions of who we already are. It’s a process of awakening to our own truth. It’s a process of allowing ourselves to be authentic.

“When you are aware that you are the force that is Life, anything is possible. Miracles happen all the time, because those miracles are performed by the heart. The heart is in direct communion with the human soul, and when the heart speaks, even with the resistance of the head, something inside you changes; your heart opens another heart, and true love is possible.”
— Don Miguel Ruiz

This New Moon in Leo provides the heat and passion toward new romances on impulse…by now your life’s experiences have brought you confidence through self-awareness. The events since the beginning of the year have brought crises in relationships, family circumstances and challenges in health issues which have demanded new levels of attention and personal adjustment.

Each and every opportunity to express love is the process of evolution and heart awakening. Consider the absolute Grace of our connected living on this planet and now shifting into deeper heart-centered thought, feeling and activity with every divine opportunity which arrives daily. Risk everything for love… choose love now…and welcome the risk of loss and heartache which is more common as we learn to continually open our heart chakra to future possibilities.

Perhaps there are those you have convinced you haven’t a care in the world… that you are perfectly self-reliant…that you are happy alone and secure in your daily routine. This facade supports the on-going divine-discontent by creating a wall of resistance between you and the ones you love…between you and yourself and between you and your god-self.

“People ask what must they become to be loving. The answer is ‘nothing.’ It is a process of letting go of what you thought you had become and allowing your true nature to float to the surface naturally.”
— Stephen Levine

The Leo New Moon is governed by a dynamic solar energy…the Sun itself is powerful in its own sign and can express itself easily. The Sun is the symbol of spirit the life force of the universe. Leo is the sign that rules the spine and the heart in the body which represents Will and Love. These are the motivating powers of desire and the will to be. Isabel Hickey

In order to feel good about yourself, confident and re- vitalized, your first priority is attending to the nutritional and chi energy of your amazing physical/electrical vehicle which houses your soul for its earthly experiences. The area of weakness is the heart due to disappointment in love, heart-ache, poor diet through lack of self-respect. Commit yourself to an outside regimen of solar healing. Walk in nature and bathe in the rainbow vibration of the full spectrum light of the Sun.

Align yourself with spiritual direction and begin to consciously release blocks in your center. Your heart chakra hardens through fear, resentment and grief. Breathe deeply and with focus allow your heart to open and remain so through daily attention to this most important process. The thymus gland is associated with the heart chakra.

The Thymus Gland is important because of its relationship to our will to live…an expression of the Leo empowerment and love. This is an important gland to keep opened and balanced. One method is to tap on your thymus several times which activates it, this is known as the thymus thump. As you keep your thymus opened and balanced you may find improvements in these areas of your life.

Your 3rd dimensional body has been changing and evolving through each continuing planetary line-up…pressuring you to feel the relentless habits you develop to remain lonely, unfulfilled and discouraged…all masked of course with false bravado expressed loudly without real knowledge or meaning…but it sounds good even if confused and scattered.

Everything that requires self-expression is supported by this dynamic lunation. Every event that allows for personal ego satisfaction through impulsive involvement brings courage and confidence…you did it. You said it…you danced the dance of social interaction and accepted the lesson of ego-evolution. Leo energy is the channel for power…never the power itself.

Leo energy supports artistic productions on stage, film and group leadership. Today’s energy can give you the extra concentration to go along with getting a creative project completed or at least the outline for connection and negotiating with others of your skill and motivation. Make the most of this New Moon by either finishing creative project from before or tackling a new production in the performing arts.

Mars in the late degrees of Gemini gives great desire for information, news and gossip. With so much energy directed towards constant communication and keeping focused on one thing is challenging. Intellectual stimulation is more important than the commitment to any one activity. This can lead to overwhelm and burn-out…remember to love yourself, respect the needs of your body and allow for rest and rejuvenation daily.
