To Know Perchance to Really Know
Why do we make such a big deal about the Eclipses? Because from our perspective here on earth, the Moon, Earth, and Sun are perfectly lined up with the Moon’s Nodes, the place in the sky where the Moon’s orbit intersects with the Earth’s orbit. Two opposing points in space that act as Magical Doorways where experience enters and exits our embodied experience.
The North Node is a portal where new experiences find us. Where are we going? The South Node is a portal where we release experiences we are done with. What are we letting go? Presently, we are in the Gemini/Sagittarius Nodal cycle. The North Node is in Gemini. The South Node is in Sagittarius. The Nodes are always in opposing signs. But we could also think of them as complementary. They work together and have a lot in common, in this case, Knowledge.
Eclipses give us the opportunity to integrate the two sides of the polarity. Gemini acquires knowledge through collecting facts and talking about what it knows. It collects information on a superficial level. Sagittarius is more concerned with the deeper truths. It has a faith that doesn’t require proof. A profound belief. The South Node invites us to check in with the philosophies that are guiding our lives. Where did we pick up our beliefs and how do they serve us? What are we reading? Studying? And at what point do we stop collecting information and allow what we know with our minds to become available in our bodies, in our actions and influence the decisions that we make?
The Full Moon in Sag is ruled by Jupiter. Jupiter just entered Pisces, a sign that it rules and is very comfortable in. And Jupiter is squaring both nodes from the early degrees of Pisces. So, the points that we want to pay attention to in our charts are 4 degrees Sagittarius, the position of the moon, 4 Degrees Gemini, the placement of the Sun, and one degree Pisces, the position of Jupiter. Full Moons are moments of culmination and flowering. In the area of your chart where the moon is blooming, you are experiencing an evolution of what you believe to be true. Your beliefs are evolving. And Jupiter assures us that this moment is kind of a big deal for us.
The Gemini/Sagittarius eclipse cycle began last spring in early June. So, consider what was going on for you last June and consider this time a continuation of that.
