This is the "other side" of the New Moon Solar Eclipse of two weeks ago. The release/renewal of spiritual influences at each New Moon find their compliment and counterpoint at the following Full Moon. One point, the New Moon, is the like a spiritual "Seeding of Meaning", the following Full Moon is like a "Harvest of Understanding", and through their constant interplay the universe provides you with signs, symbols and wisdom as you make your journey through Space.
However, when the New Moon and Full Moon are eclipses, it becomes a little more profound and occult (hidden), you have to delve a little more deeply to understand what the Meaning/Understanding might be. I wrote about this Full Moon Eclipse in my Overview for 2012. This is what I wrote then:
Lunar Eclipse in Gemini (November 28)
The Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Gemini interrupts the revelation you were hoping for. You were seeking to bend and stretch your intelligence so as to hold two (or more) approaches to the issue you confront. Again, it is your mental "blind spot", your unquestioned patterns and assumptions that need to be seen as standing in your way. Real intelligence is not exercised in having the "correct" answer by accepting the conventional paradigm; it is much more important to be able to shift your assumptions so that you can question the question itself!
In an ordinary Full Moon, Luna brightly reflects the Sun's illumination for you...it clearly reveals the deeper Meaning of the original seeding (New Moon) through her counterpoint of Understanding. However, with the shadow of the Earth crossing over the Moon (as in this Eclipse), the message is partially obscured by the Veil of Assumptions formed by prevailing thought-forms, emotions and fears here on Earth...your own, more limited point of view on Earth is obscuring the message.
What do you do? Whenever you encounter a shadow, you need to reduce or eliminate it with other sources or points of illumination...you need to enlarge your point of view so that it is more intuitive, inclusive and clear-seeing. The ordinary message of Gemini needs to be enhanced, you need to shift your awareness and challenge your assumptions, presumptions and "truths".
The usual message of the Full Moon in Gemini is always there to provide a necessary counterpoint and balance to the prevailing theme of the Sun in Sagittarius. Sagittarius revels in Deductive Understandings, which is when you posit grand theories or principles to explain your experience. However, when taken too far you can lose touch with that very reality itself, you become enamored with your lovely castles of thought-forms that increasingly bear no relationship to the real world at all...You lose touch with the greater reality around you.
As you confront the disconnect between what you actually experience and your self-wrapped modeling of the world you will have two choices: 1) you either refuse to deal with reality and remain in your increasingly less than realistic world model, or 2) you abandon your model and begin to re-connect to what is actually happening in your world.
This is where Gemini comes in as the advocate of Inductive Reasoning, of gathering, observing and examining a myriad of data points with as little presumption or filtering as possible. Eventually, you create a body of knowledge about your world that is built up, layer by layer, from your real experiences. Normally at the Gemini Full Moon you would be able to engage your adaptive, inquisitive and contrarian faculties as a counterpoint and balance to the prevailing Sagittarian deductive reasoning with its self-shadowing assumptions. You would be able to challenge the paradigm by questioning those very assumptions...and revel in your mind's ability to think "outside the box".
But here at the eclipse you must go further...it is not enough to question the paradigm or world views as put forth by the cultural verities, political allegiances or religious orthodoxies that claim to explain "life" as it is or ought to be. You need to free your perceptions and see through these prisms to an even more inclusive understanding.
What might that be, how can you do that? It would seem that either you work inductively, from the smaller to greater, or deductively, from the greater to the lesser...what else is there?
Actually, you have your most distinguishing spiritual gift, part of what makes you "human" and it will provide the answer here. It is part of your ongoing, unfolding awakening where your mind or ordinary consciousness is lifted up by your higher self...and it is known to you, oh yes it is...it is your Imagination!
Your Imagination is that most wondrous spiritual faculty that truly inspires your growth of understanding, about yourself and your universe, and creates the means by which you can accept what has been, understand what is really before you now and dream, yes dream of your better tomorrows!
This is one of your Gifts of the Spirit and it has ever quickened your development in the Human Kingdom of Life. Your progress is not accidental or incremental, and it has more often been accomplished by and through these great leaps of self-transcendence, for beaten paths are for those who beaten...Instead you will Imagine, you will Dream...and you will become a wonder!
Here at the Eclipse you need to re-imagine both your Deductions and Inductions, you need to think way outside the box...By using your Intuitional Intelligence you will open the door to another realm of Understanding, you will approach that much nearer to the realm of Divine Thought. Your Imagination/Intuition allows you to cross beyond your self-accepted, self-made boundaries of what is "Real" to your Theories or Facts. It does this by helping you to move beyond your Cultural prisms and Scientific Dogmas.
Just like any previous seeker of greater understanding, who had to put aside the known to discover the greater in their time, you must be willing to approach your world with more Openness and Wonder...with the eyes of a child...
Perhaps, with enough imagination, you can even dream of becoming another type of being altogether...Imagine how this world would be perceived or understood if you were some form of bird of the air, or if you swam as a fish in the seas...or maybe something beyond entirely...What would you know or see then?
To Dream, to Imagine...that is how your Future is made...
For what is Now, was made long, long ago...and it is done.
What will your new day bring, who will greet the Sun?
Be the Dreamer, be the Imagineer...let Intuition be your guide.
Move, grow, smile...beyond all those boxes and let your Higher Self...
Show you the Way.
