The Gemini Full Moon
This is the Full Moon in December and it was known to the Native Americans as the Full Long Night’s Moon and to the Celts as the Elder Moon. Today’s Long Night’s Moon, so close to the winter solstice, may deliver the coup de grâce in the major shift that is playing out in the world. It will deliver another fatal blow to the Uranus/Saturn opposition that was exact on November 4 and has laid the groundwork to reshape the world as we’ve known it.
Mercury Joins Pluto in Capricorn
Mercury joins Pluto as it moves into 0 degrees of Capricorn, adds extra punch and makes a potent planetary line up, and Pluto is about pure power. This degree is much more potent since it is the very beginning of the sign, so the transformation can be quite explosive. It settles down as the planet goes further into the sign.
Earthquakes are Possible along with Major World Events, and Events in Lives
This line up creates a great potential for earthquakes in the world, in current events, in our own lives and the lives of those around us. With the Full Moon making a difficult aspect to Saturn and Uranus as they oppose each other, (and while they are no longer in an exact opposition, they are still contraparallel, which is simular to an opposition) and Mercury joining Pluto at 0 degree, and the Moon’s position, the likelihood of a major earthquake somewhere in the world is very strong.
We will see it reflected in world events and in our lives, as well. Whatever aspect of the past is moving out of our lives, it will get another crowning blow and ties may be broken as we leave old situations behind and strike out for a fresher, newer world. The Uranian aspect of this represents revolution pitted against the structure of Saturn in Virgo.
Barack Obama’s Presidency Represents the Saturn Uranus Opposition in the Presidential Election
Barack Obama was the first man of mixed race elected to the presidency on the day that Saturn and Uranus were in exact opposition. This really is the start of a new world, and the economic difficulties are not merely a recession or depression from which the country will recover, it is the beginning of a new society with new values and a new approach to finances. Before this is over, and it will take years to play out, we may find our currency has an entirely different basis.
A Quantum Leap into the Future
Whether we leave behind relationships that have lost their meaning for us, jobs that are empty traps, or outworn approaches that no longer bring us any fulfillment, this aspect will take us, individually and collectively, to the next level in an unfolding karma.
