Harnessing Gemini Lunar Eclipse Powers

A Lunar Eclipse is a powerful time. During the 4 plus hours that the GEMINI FULL MOON eclipse occurs you need to be meditating.

So here is my MEDITATION GUIDE

The GEMINI FULL MOON ECLIPSE occurs November 30 at 8+ degrees at 1:30 am PST. 4:30 am EST/ 9:30 am GMT

Here is a link to the Lunar Eclipse path on the world. https://www.timeanddate.com/eclipse/map/2020-november-30

for Toronto, Ontario, Canada

Penumbral lunar eclipse visible Magnitude: -0.262

Duration:4 hours, 21 minutes

Penumbral begins :Nov 30 at 2:32:22 am

Maximum:Nov 30 at 4:42:53 am

Penumbral ends:Nov 30 at 6:53:22 am

The eclipse is Penumbral and wont fully cover the Moon. ALL eclipses carry high voltage energies. Tibetan Buddhists say that during a lunar eclipse, our actions, whether good or bad, are multiplied one thousandfold. 

According to tantric Buddhist cosmology, the energies that are lost during eclipses, cannot be recovered. This means that every time there is an eclipse, there is a gradual diminishment of energy on the planet. Over the course of decades, centuries, and millennia, this gradual decreasing of energy is what is known as ‘the degenerate age.’ This manifests as the gradual lessening of the power of the five elements – food and herbs loose their potency, there is less oxygen in the atmosphere, diseases and pollution increase, there is a worsening of natural disasters and suffering. This process of elemental degeneration is largely created as a result of these continual cycles of eclipses, until finally we reach the end of the kalpa when only one element predominates and consumes what is left.”

Gemini, the 3rd Zodiac signs’ constellation was imagined as twin human brothers and the battle between opposites in the West.. The twins are an ancient archetypal symbol in almost every culture. In the Bible, Cain and Abel were the first children of the earth and they feuded. This is the Ancient Gemini myth.

In INDIA and in CHINA the Twins were seen as the Divine Couple, or Lovers, Isis and Osiris. Gemini literally symbolizes the twin halves of the brain and our two lungs. We also live in an apparently dualistic universe. Everything has its opposite, day/night, south/north, male/female, yin/yang, heaven/earth, light/dark, good/evil.

GEMINI is the first Air sign and symbolizes the first breath of life at birth. Gemini is consciousness itself, communication, thinking and information. Gemini rules our lungs.

GEMINI is associated with the Trump Card #6 THE LOVERS.

The Gemini Full Moon and sign is ruled by the planet MERCURY, or Hermes, a hermaphrodite, {Hermes/Aphrodite] is dual sexed Archetype. Mercury is the Mercurial, fleet-footed winged messenger of the Gods. As Hermes, he is THOTH to the Egyptians who taught humankind the secrets of immortality and to whom the famous “As above, so below.” maxim is attributed. Mercury rules Wednesday. Mercury is also known as a Trickster in mythology, and is known as Coyote in Native American tails. Does your mind play tricks on you?

In the Tarot, Air is symbolized by swords, which cut through the tangle of distractions. All heroes and heroines must battle with their sword of discrimination, severing Hydra’s heads, battling dragons or negative thoughts.

MERCURY in the Tarot is the 1st Trump the MAGICIAN.

The word magician comes from the root word Magus, Magi, whose root word is Image, imagination. The Magician/Mercury is everyone’s internal magic wand. Just like in Harry Potter, your intention, your thoughts/sword, is your mental focus, your consciousness. Combined with desire/intent creates whatever you wish. This the Law of attraction. As you imagine or think, so mote it be. Consciousness is all that is, is everything that exists.

BREATHING MEDITATION ON THIS MUTABLE FULL MOON

This is a DUAL INTENTION

  2. Questioning our ego assumptions and embodying the Lovers.

MEDITATION

Set up a sacred meditation space, alter or mesa. You can pre-record these instructions with pauses to listen to as you do the meditation.

MUSIC: wind instruments. Carlos Nakai Native American flute music. https://youtu.be/EaCCxtL2rAE

Begin by smudging yourself first. Light your candles. One for each direction. I always work EAST to SOUTH to WEST TO NORTH. Always move clockwise. Call in the four elements and the four direction into your sacred circle.

Call in the four Archangels, Michael, Gabriel, Ariel, Raphael in the same order.
Center yourself by breathing, sit or lie down, close your eyes.

Sit upright. Begin to breathe, slowly, naturally and deeply. Let all your thoughts dissipate as you breathe in and out. Pay attention to your breath moving in through your nostrils filling up your lungs and then being released as your lungs empty, breathing out through your mouth. Pause after you exhale for a few seconds then slowly breath in for the count of four and be aware of the air, pneuma, the breath entering your lungs and filling them. The deeper you breathe, the more oxygen enters your body and brain. This expands your consciousness and awareness. The more air comes into your body the more your entire body relaxes.

Be aware of your solar plexus, this is the 3rd chakra, the MANIPURA, meaning jeweled city. Seed symbol is Ram. Vowel Sound is Ah.

This chakra is like a blazing yellow SUN. This is your spiritual will center. Two fingers-width below your navel, extending your will out into the cosmos. Feel your 3rd chakra lighting up, getting brighter, sunnier, and glowing. Keep doing deep mindful breathing as your mind gets emptier and emptier.

This chakra also related to the 5th Visuddha. Seed symbol is HAM. Vowel Sound is EEEEE.

Keep breathing naturally and deeply, and begin to use your breath to sound, chant or sing. Sounding is very healing. Sound the Vowels for the 3rd and 5th chakra.

Then beginning by sending your breath down your spine to your root chakra. Sense being rooted to the earth and work up through each chakra one at a time until you get to the crown chakra whose colour is white. The thousand petalled lotus.

As you sound and fill your lungs with more breath, breath after you have reached your crown chakra then send the breath down your spine and through each chakra through your root chakra into the earth. Send it past the rocks, and crystals, deep down into the very center of Mother Earth. Feel the connection of your breath to the fire and earth and water elements of the earth. Then bring your attention back up from the earth through the root chakra back into your lungs.

CALLING

Call upon the Archangel Raphael to bring healing into wherever you need it in your mind and thoughts. Look at what choices you have made and how they have put you where you are in your life now.

Mercury travels between the realm of the Gods and Goddesses, Your Higher self and you. Ask him the major questions you need to further your progress. Ask Mercury if he has any messages for you. Ask Mercury to tune up your mind, to have it work clearer, purer, and to hear directly the conversation with your Guardian Angel.

To embody the Archetype of Gemini through the Lovers.

By marrying your masculine and feminine side you become whole. Become aware of the right hand being associated with your logical masculine side connected to the left side of your brain. Then become aware of your left hand being connected to your intuitive, emotional feeling, feminine right side of your brain.

Bring both your hand together and clasp your fingers together. This physically and mentally combines both sides of your brain and makes you into a hermaphrodite. Bring your intertwined fingers up to your mouth and lower your head. This is a prayer position. From this place of prayer and unity, feel how you are whole, united, you have both masculine and feminine within. The Lovers is about self-love, wholeness, Oneness. Feel this Inner Lover. Feel your love for them and them for you. Give and receive. This is the unconditional love of the Beloved. Rumi wrote thousands of love poems once he felt the presence of the Beloved within. When you do this magical inner work with your Beloved, love appears everywhere around you. With this knowledge you can go into the world and speak love, discriminate with love. Be a Lover in the world.

At this Full Moon Eclipse be Grateful and give thanks for all you have in your life, say it aloud. Come out of your meditation. Write down whatever images, gifts, words, sensation came to you. Stay with this energy over the next two weeks until the New Moon in Sagittarius.

At the end of every ceremony thank the spirits and elements for coming to be in your circle. You must release each one back to their direction, starting in the East or South, whichever direction you began. Thank each one out loud is best, for participating in the ceremony. At the end of the ceremony say, “May the circle be open but unbroken. May the love of the Goddess be ever in my heart. Thank you. It is finished in beauty. Aho.”
