This is a complex Super Moon. It is the last of three and the last Full Moon of 2016. At 22+ degrees Gemini, the moon is opposite and connected with the fiery optimistic, Sagittarius SUN. The Sagittarius Sun brings truth, justice, optimism, passion, adventure, and we bring these qualities with us to this Full Moon. The SAGE SUN is very Sage right now as it is conjunct to serious, karmic planet of maturity and limitations, SATURN. The Sun-Saturn combo are insisting that Gemini’s, especially a certain one who was recently elected to be the next President of the United States, get serious and take the consequences.
Donald Trump’s SUN is exactly opposite this Full Moon and the Moon is exactly conjunct his natal Moon. Donald was born on a Total Lunar Eclipse at 23+ degrees Sagittarius so this Full Moon has come full circle for him and Saturn is asking that he grows up and acts his age. This is a sobering wake up to all Gemini’s.
GEMINI is the sign associated with The LOVERS in the TAROT
The Wild Unknown Tarot
This may be a time of great vulnerability for Trump and for all of us as Chiron the WOUNDED HEALER squares the Sun and Moon. Chiron brings out our vulnerabilities. This is where we may erroneously create the biggest defenses, bandages, denial, escapism, distraction and addictions to cover the hurt contained in these collective wounds. The covering of the wound with drugs will never heal it but only allows the wounds to grow bigger. We must look at our collective Oneness in order to heal.
Gemini is a sign of duality and everything contains its opposite in order to be balanced and whole. Gemini is the Yin/Yang sign of the Zodiac, much like the sign of Libra. All the Air signs contain this element of duality.
Gemini is governed by planet MERCURY which is right now OUT OF BOUNDS, it is in its wild phase and it is slowing down to turn Retrograde for the 4th time this year on December 19th. This brings a very UNKNOWN quality to what is being completed now. I know there is a famous Tarot Deck called the Wild Unknown.
Speaking of unknowns, planet URANUS + Ceres + ERIS dwarf planet of Disturbances are all aligned in ARIES and are sextiling the MOON in GEMINI. All of this group is creating a YOD or finger of GOD to LILITH in SCORPIO where she is very strong as she governs SCORPIO, of sex, death, rebirth, power and control, secrets and ruthlessness.
LILITH by John Collier 1892
So a certain Gemini will be feeling the scrutiny of some karmic wild crazy unknown LILITH as Destroyer energy by women collectively for being rejected for asking for equality. I say YAY to that. LILITH is like KALI and Hell hath no fury like a powerful woman who is rejected because of conceit, arrogance, and hubris, not to mention narcissism.
MERCURY in CAPRICORN is being sextiled by the planet of illusions, delusions, scams, oil, false promises, addictions, martyrs and spirituality, NEPTUNE in PISCES which makes it even harder to fathom WTF is going on. Neptune is conjunct the SOUTH NODE, the past, what we need to let go of. The continued false promises about the DAP from the ETP and the indigenous water protectors who are still camped out fighting against the continued drilling even though the President and other government organizations ordered it to stop are part of this. These two planets are inconjunct or in a YOD or FINGER OF GOD to VESTA at 5 degrees LEO which is also conjunct to Trump’s PLUTO at 10 degrees LEO in his Natal 12th house of secrets and self-undoing. Very interesting. Something seems to be

GRAND AIR TRINE at this lunation
JUPITER in LIBRA is trining the GEMINI Moon and MARS conjunct ATHENA in AQUARIUS at 25+ 26 degrees respectively. Trines are beneficial but you must be very careful as Jupiter exacerbates the flip-floppiness and being too superficial. Mars in Aquarius is very revolutionary and goes against traditions and Gemini is also famous for being two faced. These degrees are also opposite to Mr. Trump’s Natal Mars at 26 degrees of LEO. He may be all puffed up and hopping mad. Look for news of Greece having another major financial or cultural break down soon.
VENUS in AQUARIUS at 7 degrees is inconjunct the NORTH NODE in VIRGO at 7 degrees. Women are in revolt mode to being put back into the servant of men roles. Venus and North Node are inconjunct to Trump’s natal MERCURY at 8 degrees of CANCER making it a finger of God to women. There will be a WOMEN”S MARCH on WASHINGTON the day after Trump’s inauguration where they will give him the finger.
There are doubts that he will even be inaugurated as the Electoral College has to decide this on December 19 whether to actually allow Trump to take office. MERCURY turns Retrograde from a conjunction with Pluto in Capricorn squaring Jupiter in Libra and opposing Uranus in ARIES. Which is all about….
Can you spell Revolution? Recount? Rescind? Rejection?
Remember the wild unknown yawns before all of us now not just in the U.S. This is the liminal time, a time of fog, of unexpected chaos, nothing solid to hold onto, a time of division, blaming others, acting childish, and immature under this Full Moon.
Winter Solstice occurs on December 21st with a Retrograde Mercury @ 5:44 am EST in Washington D.C. I will write separately about that.
At the last Full Moon, it’s a good time to look back on 2016. It has been a difficult strained, and fractious year with BREXIT and a total upheaval from the U.S. election. It has been a sad year as many great musicians and celebrities who passed away. David Bowie, Prince, Leonard Cohen, John Glenn, Greg Lake, Janet Reno, Alan Rickman, Harper Lee, Gato Barbieri, and many others.
Spend time at the Full Moon reflecting on what has been completed in your life. We are also completing a 9-year cycle, so bring whatever you need to a close.
There will be a CAPRICORN NEW Moon December 28 and 2017 begins with a Retrograde Mercury. Stay optimistic, these are Mutable times. Stay Mercurial. We are also entering a #1 year in 2017 which is the Magician.
