Full Moon of Gemini: Thursday June 12, 2014
by Mark Lerner
The road to this month’s Full Moon – happening June 12 at 9:13PM PDT and energizing 23 degrees of Gemini and Sagittarius – is anything but clear, simple, and easy.
Leading up to this moment – also known in some esoteric circles as the Festival of Humanity – is the asteroid Pallas in Virgo making a fairly infrequent opposition to Neptune in Pisces. Problem solving may be much harder than perhaps you had anticipated. Then Venus goes on a rare warpath by making a frictional, 45-degree tie with retrograding Mercury, then forming an off-kilter, 150-degree link with Vesta, and with all this leading up to the annual Venus-Saturn opposition from Taurus to Scorpio. Not only are three discordant Venus alignments in one day fairly unusual, but the Venus-Saturn polarity happens only three minutes before the illuminating Full Moon takes place.
The fact that Venus also forms a supportive, 60-degree liaison with wounded-healer Chiron (seven minutes before the Full Moon) seems to be too little too late. Nevertheless, any Full Moon is still a highly enlightening force that can bring a radiant glow to humanity – particularly via individual and group meditations where the emphasis is on bringing peace and harmony into earthly zones that are hotbeds of violence and mayhem.*
Adding to the oddity of today’s staccato-like energy-field is that the Full Moon moment begins a void lunar twilight zone that lasts until 10:05AM PDT tomorrow while time-controllers Saturn in Scorpio and Chiron in Pisces make a temporary truce via a trine formation at 10:25PM PDT tonight. If feelings of déjà vu seem to abound, that makes total sense right now.

*A Note concerning Planetary Flare-ups: The degree placements for this Full Moon are 23 degrees of Gemini for the Sun and 23 degrees of Sagittarius for the Moon. When America was born via the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, the planet of traditional warfare – Mars – was located at 22 degrees of Gemini while still undiscovered Neptune was placed at 23 degrees of Virgo. Thus, this particular Full Moon is triggering or possibly short-circuiting one of the most troublesome aspects in our national chart – the 90-degree, frictional square between Mars and Neptune, being an alignment that contains a lot of idealism that sometimes borders on fanaticism. In the last few weeks, the scandalous and horrific situations at our Veterans Hospitals have been revealed, an American soldier, who may have deserted his post and yet was held hostage for five years, has been released by the Taliban in Afghanistan (followed by a national outcry, pro and con, and with an ongoing vigorous debate), and now extreme terrorist forces have captured the number two city in Iraq, with the possibility of renewed air strikes against them by the USA. Under these tumultuous circumstances, it is helpful for all of us to be thinking positive and uplifting thoughts in our role as ambassadors of goodwill to humanity and the kingdoms of nature.
