Gemini Full Moon blessings to you on this day of infinite possibilities. The Full Moon occurs on this Friday, 11/23 at 12:39 am EST, just after the Sun has entered Sagittarius. This is a unique Full Moon because the Sun is about to catch up to Jupiter in Sagittarius.
Remember when Jupiter entered Sagittarius just two weeks ago? Well moving forward for the next 11 months, all that we are creating, expanding and growing into will be magnificently magnified. These are potent times of support in all the ways we are seeking evolution. However we are still in the death portal of the Wheel of the Year, meaning that this is the prime time for shedding and letting go.
The Gemini Sagittarius axis is all about information, ideas, communication, higher mind, truth and authenticity. Therefore this lunation is an important time to get clear in your thoughts and communication, particularly with your own inner dialog. And this is a ripe opportunity for healing with the Sun and Jupiter trining Chiron in Pisces. May you take a moment during this moon phase to witness how far you have come on your healing journey in 2018. This has been a mighty year.
As we are just culminating the American holiday of Thanksgiving, I wish to honor all of the Native Americans who are the true wisdomkeepers and stewards of this soil. The reality is that many of our First Nation sisters and brothers still suffer, and for them this national holiday is a day of mourning. So many tribal Native American teachings are based on loving and tending to Mother Earth. I believe we won't have true peace, harmony and equality in this country until we are willing to face the brutalities of American history and offer apologies to those who have been harmed. This Beaver Moon is a beautiful time to question how you think, what you think, and how you communicate personally and collectively.
Today I launch a new class at West Asheville Yoga studio from 8:45-10 am on Fridays. I invite you to join us to receive the transmissions of this Full Moon with deep meditation and a long gong. I am taking over Sierra's class slot and wish for you to know that she will be announcing a new evening class in the coming weeks at WAY, so please stay tuned.
As we are still in the depths of the Underworld and letting go, I wish to share with you one of my greatest allies, Great Grandmother Hematite. This hematite medicine has truly been my anchor for a number of years now. If you have experienced any of my women's ceremonies or pilgrimages, you have met her too, most likely in the form of a tonic or guided meditation. She is grounding, compassionate and nurtures us in all the ways we have been abandoned or isolated. Scroll down to learn more, or visit this link. May she nourish you during these times.
