Like every Full Moon, the Gemini Full Moon at 4:28 am EST Tuesday (but unusually functional now) will feature the Earth moving between the luminaries (Sun and Moon). Unlike other oppositions of the luminaries, the Gemini Full Moon will appear against the background of intergalactic space while the Sun is nearly conjoined with the core of our galaxy. That will place Earth, and you, between in more ways than one.
The Galactic Core is a broad expanse of sky, even from here. Intergalactic space is as wide as the sky itself. That’s how it’s fair to say that Tuesday’s Full Moon is functioning now as the luminaries approach opposition.
Configurations and alignments of luminaries, planets, points and assorted objects often correspond to analogous events in your life. A Full Moon is perhaps the most well known example.
Unlike many other aspects, a Full Moon is plainly visible. As such, a compelling visual cue reinforces what you are feeling on other levels — being between the solar emblem of waking consciousness and the lunar symbol of the other half of your life.
Most of us are well connected with solar consciousness. Not everybody is as familiar, or comfortable, with the mysterious source of dreams, where emotional needs, intuitive aptitude and childhood are so deeply rooted. Hence, when the two representations of your psyche’s major constituents oppose you can feel a fulfilling wholeness, or traumatically torn, or even some of both.
Having the luminaries oppose while the Sun is conjunct the Galactic Center leaves the Moon seemingly adrift in the vast conundrum which is both nothing and everything at once. Such an alignment serves to take this coming Full Moon to a different level, at once personal and universal. With the Moon opposing the Sagittarius Sun from dualistic Gemini, the corresponding experiences you have are not likely to be neutral.
That is not to say that the Gemini Full Moon even now building to a climax is something to be afraid of. On the contrary, you can participate in the gradually culminating experience starting now, so as to appreciate the miracle that you are. From self-appreciation you can do a little expansive building of your own.
It’s a great time see just how special it is to be between not only the luminaries, and not only the Galactic Core and the rest of the Cosmos, but also between your own birth and inevitable transition from your current form.
For one thing, the physical scale of your current existence makes it possible for you to behold the great structures of the Universe directly. At the same time, your body routinely interacts with the sub-atomic by registering photons on your retina as vision, among many other examples.
The capacity endowed by your physical scale thus places you between all the rest that is, not so as to despair at being separate, but rather to be inspired by direct evidence that you are ‘one with’.
That’s a clue for how to build yourself up to Tuesday’s Full Moon. Please consider starting now. Whenever, wherever and however you feel divided within or separated from that which is outside your physical being, stop and think about it. Think about how you could even accept the possibility of being anything but whole. Contemplate how it is that you were somehow, somewhere along the line convinced that you are separate from any other being, or the Earth, or the Sun, or our galaxy, or all that is.
Prove it to yourself on Tuesday by simply looking at the Full Moon, weather permitting. Simply do that, and think. Think, knowing that countless others are doing the same thing at the same time. By doing just that you will be made whole within to immeasurable depths, and without for infinity.
