Mercury, the “Messenger of the Gods” is the ruling planet of Gemini, and it’s also moving though the sign of Sagittarius during this Full Moon. Gemini and Mercury are both associated with our thinking and communicative processes. Experts have proven that our thoughts can create positive or negative effects within our lives, the lives of others, and nature. Therefore, this thought-provoking Full Moon in Gemini, with its emphasis on Sagittarian — truth vs. 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 my beliefs and thoughts reflecting my individual desires and
destiny — my personal truth?
If not, what is needed for me to allow a change of those thoughts and
There is a criterion by which you can judge whether the thoughts you are thinking and the things you are doing are right for you. The criterion is: Have they brought you inner peace? ~ Peace Pilgrim
