“Knowledge of reality is limited by our pre-existing beliefs, assumptions and expectations.”  ~ Cynthia Sue Larson

The study of Astrology and the planetary cycles offers an amazing opportunity to understand the evolutionary and spiritual purpose of each zodiac sign. This understanding provides a capacity to see beyond the veil and to release judgments, opinions, and criticisms of others. When we truly understand that everyone around us is on a unique individual evolutionary journey and we focus on our own individual spiritual journey we become liberated.

The last Full Moon of 2016 is the final of three consecutive Full Super Moons and occurs in the communicative and versatile sign of duality — Gemini. Gemini is the sign driven to discovery through curiosity. It enjoys gathering and dispersing information and is associated with our thought processes. If it takes in too much information too quickly, it can experience mental fluctuations and unrest. It is flexible and ever youthful.

A Full Moon always occurs when it opposes the path of the Sun on the zodiac ecliptic. Because this is a Full Super Moon you can expect the reflected energies of the Sun to be more heightened than a regular Full Moon. This month the Sun is in the fire sign of Sagittarius, conjunct the planet Saturn. (Both the Sun and Saturn are opposing the Full Moon in Gemini.) Sagittarius is the Astrological zodiac sign associated with the quest that takes us in search of our individual cosmic truth. Before we can see the truth of who we truly are we must eliminate any limiting Gemini thought patterns and longstanding Sagittarian belief systems that are no longer serving us.

Additionally, Mercury is the ruling planet of Gemini and is currently in its shadow period before beginning its retrograde cycle on December 19 in the sign of Capricorn. Mercury will begin its retrograde cycle just before the Winter Solstice occurring on December 21 when the Sun also makes its journey into Capricorn, signifying the official start of winter. Capricorn is the sign associated with responsibility, control, authority, fear, work-life balance, reflection, and time-space reality. With this Full Moon occurring during a Mercury retrograde cycle we can expect any outmoded beliefs around these matters to get our attention.

Therefore, this thought provoking Full Moon in Gemini with its emphasis on Sagittarius—truth versus belief — is an excellent time for each of us to contemplate the following:

– What are my individual beliefs at this moment in time?
– What stories and thoughts am I currently creating about my reality?
– Are these beliefs and thoughts reflecting my individual desires and destiny—my truth?
– If not, what is needed for me to allow a revolutionary transformation in my own life?

“What we can or cannot do, what we consider possible or impossible, is rarely a function of our true capability. It is more likely a function of our beliefs about who we are.” ~Tony Robbins
