This weekend, the Moon moves through Taurus then the early degrees of Gemini. In Taurus, the sign ruler is Venus and the mood reflects those earthy, pleasurable values. In Gemini it’s Mercury ruled, a curious mood, attuned to communications and the senses – attitude.
Both Venus and Mercury are in Scorpio, involved in powerful and deep transits. Watery, brimming with depth and transformational punch. By the the time the Gemini Moon finally reaches exact opposition with the Sagittarius Sun, the full moon eclipse in the wee-early hours Monday, our attitudes about what we want and what we think… have snapped a full reversal. Does that sound worrisome? It looks delicious and exciting.
Friday morning, the Taurus Moon opposed Venus and conjoined Uranus, carrying that Venus-Uranus opposition flavor on through the rest of the sign. Something electric happened with desire, resources, or values in all our lives. Something we launched on the world or something that came from the outside to our own inner core.
Mercury in Scorpio sextiled Pluto. Think about it, about what is driving this emotional charge. There’s a chance to figure something out that will change your life.
By Friday night, the Taurus Moon carries the Venus-Uranus jolt into a trine with Vesta in Virgo. That infused feeling fuels devotion.
Saturday the Taurus Moon passes through a sextile to Neptune as Venus picks up an applying trine to Neptune. It’s a mood to dream up the possibilities for enrichment and relish the resulting emotional impact of craving and delight.
Saturday night the Moon trines Pluto and Jupiter, going on to oppose Mercury overnight. Mercury makes an exact sextile to Jupiter. The mood is exquisitely pleasurable and conversation is the brush with which you can tease out intense sensation and build on those connections. Pay attention to the reactions you elicit and play along to build them up. Joy and delight are possible. There’s an air of excitement and intrigue.
Sunday morning, the Moon finishes up in Taurus with a trine to Saturn. Stabilizing, satisfying. It’s been worth the wait.
Then the Moon heads into jingley Gemini, capitalizing on the emerging sextile of Mercury to Saturn. Make the calculations. Grab bits from here and from there; order the details and they’ll fall into place. Your argument is solid. It’s intellectually exciting and fated.
The Gemini Moon sextiles Chiron and heads into full moon opposition with the Sun. Something painful in the past is the catalyst for our current growth. That growth was a long time coming, but now it’s coming fast. As the Gemini full moon eclipses something out of being, it also erases restrictive scar tissue. The damage is still there, but it fits a new purpose – bracing support. We won’t pretend it doesn’t or didn’t hurt, but we can understand its part in our growth and upcoming strategy.
We don’t have to hide it or lie about it. We also don’t have to talk about it. But we do have to accept it. It’s part of who were are.
The full moon eclipse takes place at 8 Gemini. Where does that hit your chart? What thoughts and desires are you having? What are your weekend plans?
