Gemini Full Moon Eclipse

My friend and astrologer Virginia Bell shared this wonderful take on the Gemini Full Moon Eclipse – December 10, 2011. You can visit her website: and her new blog: or sign up for the official Virginia Bell Astrology Facebook Page.


“Eclipses are turning points; we come to a fork in the road, a veil parts, and suddenly we have an opportunity to take a different route, make a new choice, or see things from a fresh perspective. The Sun is in exuberant Sagittarius, the sign of the quest; these are the philosophers who see the big picture and ask deep questions. The Moon, in brainy Gemini, gathers and distills information. This polarity asks us to examine our thinking and reminds us that whatever we think about, we speak about; whatever we speak about, we bring about.

Mercury is the planet of the mind; Uranus is said to the higher octave of Mercury; it is the divine mind. Brilliant Uranus, retrograde since July 9, turns direct on December 9; like a sleeping giant, this distant planet awakens with renewed energy and force. Mercury moves out of retrograde on December 13. These two planets make a positive trine, adding electricity to this Full Moon eclipse.

“The universe is made of stories, not atoms.”
-Muriel Rukeyser

Is there a story you keep telling yourself or others; a story that defines you and keeps you stuck? “I’m too old to start over; I don’t have enough money; there are no good men, women, jobs.” You get the drift. Do you have the courage to change your story? This Full Moon Eclipse has the power to break old, limiting patterns, expand our horizons, and inspire us to speak our truth. Stay alert to signs and omens. Teachers and tricksters appear (disguised as strangers, taxi drivers, and baristas) to bring us messages from the future and remind us who we are and why we have come here. What begins as mischief may turn into magic. ” – VB

Remember who you are.

I was told that in Delphi, during my meditations at the sacred site while writing my book Called or Not Spirits Are Present

Now I teach that to my students. Think for yourself. Follow your instincts, even if it means you go in a direction that is unexpected, sudden, away from the crowd that has it’s own expectations of who you are. Uranus, the teacher demands it. To be free, inside. Divesting the known for the unknown, so the only certainty is change. Not easy always, but easy sometimes. Look for repetitions of support. Dave and I like the number 3. If I see support for my “in what ways might I……” ideas, in 3 different ways. Then, my “ah, interesting…. response is activated.

See how you can activate your ah, interesting……. and live.
