The 11/11 Scorpio New Moon opened a portal into new realities. Now, the Full Moon in Gemini, culminating Wednesday (2:44pm Pacific), reveals what needs to shapeshift, especially in our MINDS, in order to effectively anchor in the transformation.

Coinciding with and amplified by the Full Moon, the time-bending, altered-state-seeking, paradigm-dissolving Saturn-Neptune square will be exact (strongest) for the first time next Thursday.

In effect 2015-2017, the square between Saturn in Sagittarius and Neptune in Pisces dissolves the structures that keep us stuck in old stories of separation, inviting in our power to dream up a more compassionate, loving and beautiful world.

Reality (Saturn) is very fluid (Neptune) right now – can you feel it? The old rules are loosening their hold, defenses are melting. The “Otherworld,” the world behind the world, feels closer than ever. As all the shapeshifting, bridge-building Mutable signs (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces) are activated at the Full Moon, take advantage of this opportunity to shake free of stuckness and slip into a new paradigm. Embrace fluidity, flexibility and adaptability.

neptuneFull Moons are always the emotional peak of the moonth, and this one stirs up the tidal wave of feeling of the Saturn-Neptune square – grief, despair, disappointment, rage. The feelings want to move through us, dissolve and dissipate the past, and carry us into greater passion, trust, inspiration and imagination.

Lately I’ve been noticing a lot of Mercury-Retro-esque symptoms – computer/techno glitches, communication challenges, delays and obstacles in moving forward… At the Full Moon, Mercury conjoins with the Sun and Saturn in Sagittarius and squares Neptune, suggesting that our minds need time to process, synthesize and integrate the new consciousness that is taking shape. All this Mutability can inspire restlessness and the desire for fast movement, but we need the downtime, the rest, the spaciousness, the timelessness of Neptune in order to ground and stabilize the new Saturnian reality structures.

For more insight into what this Full Moon means for YOU, find the house in your birth chart that contains 3 degrees Gemini. The areas of life signified by that house are where you’re invited to:  free your mind from self-defeating thought patterns; release and rewrite the attitudes and stories that undermine your power; make changes in your everyday life to align with your deepest wisdom and highest vision.

[p.s. I wrote an article on the Saturn-Neptune Trine for The Mountain Astrologer and re-posted it on my site here. Even though it’s about the trine, not the square, it’s worth reading – much of the info is relevant and useful.]
