Just where has 2017 disappeared to? Time seems to be ticking more loudly and with Saturn entering Capricorn this month we will be even more aware of the passage of time. More about Saturn later.
This last Full Moon of the year is a Supermoon, in fact Monday’s Full Supermoon is the only one we have been able to witness this year. All the other Supermoons have been New Moons and therefore invisible.
This powerful Supermoon takes place at 11 degrees of Gemini and there are a number of other planets located at 11 degrees of signs. Among these is Neptune, with which the Moon and Sun will form a tight mutable T-square. Jupiter meanwhile is at 11 degrees of Scorpio, making an awkward quincunx with the Moon. Neptune is known to create fog and uncertainty through which it is difficult to see clearly or make informed choices. Instead, it’s a time for imagination and intuition, reflection and mystery.
Gemini’s ruling planet Mercury, stations retrograde at this Full Moon, which could cloud issues and confuse communication further. This is not a good time to be making important decisions. All the facts may not be to hand, or you may be completely wrong in your thinking. It’s also possible that you may be listening to the wrong people. Trickery and outright deception are possible.
Mercury stations are best used to take extra time to think things through. This is a good Full Moon to just unwind. The trouble with that is that we tend to overindulge at this time of the year, especially on a Full Moon. Remember that Neptune rules alcohol as well! Art and creative activities are a good outlet for this energy too.
Mercury is close to Saturn so responsible choices are on offer for those who have the common sense to heed the warning. Meanwhile, Ceres aligns with the North Node, reminding us of our ecological footprint.
Venus has now vanished from the morning sky and will not be seen again for a few months. A process of transformation, endings and beginnings, will take us through to next year.
As with all Supermoons, there is the possibility that it may trigger earth movements and volcanic eruptions. Neptune is known as the chief god that rules earthquakes, so we may be about to witness a big seismic event, with a possible tsunami.
