“...In divinity opposites are always reconciled.”
Tonight we will experience a full (super) moon in the airy sign of Gemini (the twins). A supermoon happens when the full moon coincides with the moon's closest approach to Earth in its orbit. Supermoons make the moon appear a little brighter and closer than normal, although the difference is hard to spot with just our naked eye. This will be our last supermoon of 2017.
This is a time of adaptability, short journeys, reading/writing and a desire for variety of having more than one thing at once. We may all be feeling more talkative and expressive during this moon's transit. In case you missed this week's Witchtips + Horoscopes with our astrologer Jessica Lanyadoo she said "This is a time to let go of your attachments. Notice where your ideas about yourself, a person, a dynamic, or the world, are more projection than real."
All communication (talking, writing, or reading) as well as intellectual matters are easier during the Gemini Full moon. People may become more adaptable and changeable, so take all statements and promises with a grain of salt, especially if the person has proven to be fickle in the past. During this transit this is a hard time to make any decisions, but it's a good time to use your wit and cleverness in conversation. There may also be a strong desire for some variety and freedom especially in emotional matters that are in your environment. Towards the end of this transit, when the moon begins to approach the sign of Cancer, our interactions and communications will begin to become much more emotional.
MOON MEDITATION & MAGIC
CRYSTAL + FOCUS
Contemplate on the powerful impact of this moon's energy, Gemini is an air sign. The element of air is traditionally the first element to be honored in a magical circle. It is positioned in the East, and this is the place of sunrise, and it is linked to beginnings. The element of Air is associated in magic with communication, as well as with movement and travel.
Place a Lapis stone at the center of your throat to allow expansion and openness in your throat center. Try spending 5 to as long as 30 minutes being conscious of your breathing. Inhale deeply, draw air into your lungs and envision your lung expanding like a balloon. RELEASE. On your next inhale, imagine this being the very first breath you've ever taken. and when you breathe out through your mouth, imagine that this is the last time that you will do so.
Journal: Spend a little time after this meditation (breathing exercise) thinking about how this feels to you. What does air mean to us as humans?
Use symbols of air, feathers, images of birds (owls), The planet mercury & essential oils of sandalwood, juniper, lavender. Burn incense of Frankincense & myrrh. Gemstones: Clear quartz, Obsidian, Smokey quartz, Fluorite.
Use this time to work magic pertaining to bringing light and life closer to you as solstice, Yuletide and the holidays approach. Work with Friends, host gatherings and communal rituals in shared space, work with impartial and detached thinking, and work to heal your body specifically the arms, hands, and lungs.
GEMINI MOON WELLNESS
Gemini is associated with arms/hands, and nervous system. Taking the time to stretch, and relax the muscles in these parts during this transit will only be beneficial. A warm Epsom salt soak scented with healing essential oils such as lavender and Eucalyptus can be calming to the nerves, and relaxing for the body. This is an excellent time for massage and conscious/focused breathing. .The most drastic shift in weather usually occurs during the Moon in Gemini, and can affect anyone who suffers from Rheumatoid arthritis. Postpone any surgeries on the hands. If you're suffering from information overload and restlessness a warm cup of chamomile tea can soothe frazzled nerves and leave you drifting into dreamland in no time.
