Lunar Eclipse in Gemini, 30th November 2020 at 8 degrees.
A New Era is emerging.
Eclipses are some of the most dramatic tools that the universe uses to get us to pay attention to areas in our life that need to change.
This Lunar Eclipse in Gemini, can provide the necessary catalyst to overcome any emotional blocks, circumstances or obstacles and open a portal and door to new opportunities, success, creativity and joy, which are all themes of this Gemini Eclipse.
During a Lunar eclipse, the Earth casts a shadow on the Moon. As the Earth’s shadow blocks the light to the Moon, something similar takes place best likened to a restart to our computer. A reboot, a reprogramming takes place.
Something buried and hidden in your subconscious, especially on an emotional level, as the Full Moon rules our emotions, can suddenly come to light. Something that has been blocking us, perhaps even for many years, that stops us being true to ourselves and finding happiness.
This Lunar Eclipse can bring us more lightness and joy. Gemini’s lightness of being is represented by the butterfly. The bright colours of the Butterfly are associated with aliveness and brightness. The gift of this Lunar Eclipse is to help us regain any lost feelings of lightness, joy and colour in our lives.
In Ancient Greece, butterflies represent the psyche or soul, and its attribute of immortality. Gemini is the sign of youthfulness whose source of the fountain of youth is her inner lightness of being and joy. When we embrace our inner joy and lightness, we defy age and our ability to keep our inner spark alive and youthfulness becomes eternal.
As the heavy and challenging astrology of 2020 slowly dissipates and makes room for the lighter astrology in air signs that will dominate the coming years, its time now to let go of any feelings of heaviness and feelings of burden and limitation that are being illuminated by the Lunar Eclipse, so that we can acknowledge it and take action and responsibility for bringing more lightness into our lives.
Our source of joy comes at first from within. Regardless of our difficulties, we can still access our inner joy at any time.
Reconnecting with our inner spark of light, freedom, lightness, joy, and exhilarating qualities that are innately a part of us all, helps to reconnect to who we really are and ultimately our higher self and our higher inner wisdom.
We can free ourselves from emotional baggage and dysfunctional emotional patterns so that we will be able to take optimal advantage of the upcoming immensely powerful and positive Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius on the 14th December, that will help us to aim high and achieve our goals.
Just as the butterfly emerges from the cocoon, we too are transitioning into a new emerging era. It is incredibly significant, not just because it is the first Lunar Eclipse in Gemini for eight years, but because it is the beginning of a new cycle for the next 200 years.
The Lunar Eclipse in Gemini, an air sign is a harbinger of this new era, as Jupiter and Saturn change signs from Capricorn an earth sign, into Aquarius and will meet together at 0 degrees on the 21st December 2020. This great conjunction that happens every 20 years sets the tone for our collective consciousness.
In the past 200 years, the great conjunctions have all been in earth signs that represent materialism. From December 21st, the great conjunctions will all be in the air signs of Aquarius, Gemini and Libra for the next 200 years.
This means a more liberal, fair, humanitarian age, we will witness great advances in science, technology and justice for the good of the collective whole and our planet earth. Greed, materialism and power will no longer be the major influence.
The horizons ahead look much lighter and brighter. We can indeed be optimistic, as perhaps some of the most difficult planetary alignments of our lifetime are coming to an end. While this period has accelerated our soul’s evolution, it has been perhaps one of the most intensive periods of our life time.
As we embark on to a new journey, the Lunar Eclipse in Gemini can represent a time of important decision making with many choices available to us. We need to gain clarity about which path to take, as Neptune in Pisces makes a challenging aspect (square) to the North Node in Gemini.
The position of Neptune is especially powerful as Neptune has just stationed direct after a five-month retrograde period and represents that we are at a crossroad personally and collectively.
The clues to help us with our choices and decision making and how to move forward lie both in Neptune and the south node.
The South Node in Sagittarius close to the Sun, can show us what we need to take with us on our journey and what to leave behind. The higher expression of Sagittarius is the fearless Crusader, adventurer and seeker of truth and higher wisdom that upholds the highest values and beliefs with integrity.
The higher expression of Neptune is compassion, the visionary, the spiritual warrior, faith and healer, these are the gifts that we need to integrate personally and collectively.
The lower consciousness level of Sagittarius can be extreme, self-righteous, even fanatical, distorting the truth (the false Guru or leader). The lower expression of Neptune in Pisces can be delusional, naive, fearful, weak and co-dependent, without healthy boundaries.
When we integrate the qualities together in their highest form, they work together to become the Courageous Warrior of love, truth and compassion for all, while at the same time setting healthy boundaries. This is how we need to move forward on a personal and collective level.
Refusing to be governed by fear.
Healing is to be found in the truth.
Stepping up, to our next evolutionary level, collectively and personally. Gemini represents the media, communication and the spread of information and facts. The North and South Node are in the signs of Gemini and Sagittarius until January 2022 and Neptune square the Nodes shows that we are collectively at a crossroads and at a turning point.
Gemini represents the need to have a discerning analytical mind from many varied sources when it comes to discerning fact from fiction and our tendency to succumb to manipulation, propaganda, cult leaders and fake news in the Media.
We need to reevaluate our belief and value system. To discern delusion from reality and truth from deceit.
The period between this Lunar Eclipse and the coming Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius on the 14th December, marks both an ending to our delusions, fear and uncertainty and an awakening to our real possibilities.
We can trust our inner compass and intuition when making decisions and making out the path ahead as Mercury in Scorpio the ruler of the Eclipse makes a positive aspect to Neptune, Jupiter and Pluto. This aspect helps us to be inspired and envision a bigger, brighter future without limitations. Utilising and making the most of our gifts and talents.
Vision is the art of seeing what is invisible to others.
“If you can dream it, you can do it.” – Walt Disney
To experience joy we must first feel hope. The Sun in Sagittarius is bringing hope, optimism, expansive vision and the power of visualisation. What we imagine, we can create.
If you have been lacking drive and a sense of direction, Mars in Aries makes a positive aspect to the lunar eclipse and will help with a well-needed dynamic impetus of get up and go, we will feel more drive, motivation and enthusiasm.
Aries symbolizes the quest to express individuality, to assert willpower, and to create vitality for initiating new cycles of experience.
Neptune square this eclipse symbolises how as a collective we are divided and the need for unity as Neptune in Pisces spiritual truth is the knowledge, we are all one and separation is an illusion. We need to embrace and celebrate our diverseness .
Another important message of Neptune when we find ourselves at a crossroads is the need to lose our fear and trust in faith.
We need to take a leap of faith.
Fear is the opposite of faith, but they both require that you believe in something that you have not seen. Which one will you choose? Turning adversity into strength, dreams into reality, fear into faith, it’s time to blaze a trail ahead and shine our light to others, helping them to see their way through the darkness.
“One new perception, one fresh thought, one act of surrender, one change of heart, one leap of faith, can change your life forever.”-Robert Holden
