Jive Talking

Hang onto your hats, folks, this Full Moon, appearing tomorrow, Dec. 3, at 11 degrees Gemini, is not only a Supermoon, it comes just hours after Mercury stations retrograde conjunct Saturn! It makes almost exact aspects to Jupiter and Neptune, and is square to Neptune. The Sun is also square Neptune.

This means that mischief abounds - lies, deception, theft, loss, scandal, and possibly illness will mark this Moon phase. Overriding all will be Mercury's infamous influence on miscommunication. Holy moly - this is such a perfect backdrop to what's happening here on the political stage, and it'll be an interesting couple of weeks! You know that you'll need to be very careful when beginning any new projects, especially those dealing with contracts and negotiations. You'll also need to be aware that negative thinking like pessimism, or thoughts of doing bad things, does not mix well with the deceptive and treacherous influence of Neptune.

The saving grace of this Moon is Jupiter trine Neptune. Its direct aspects to the Full Moon make it easier to work with. You can use the benefits of this aspect to overcome the negative influences coming from elsewhere. This uplifting aspect encourages hope, generosity and community spirit. Use it to counter the pessimistic influence of Mercury retrograde. You may have fated encounters with priests, gurus, or psychics. Enlightenment can come through dreams, visions or meditation. Remember, when receiving spiritual guidance or using your intuition, also use your rational mind to filter out the nonsense.

This Full Moon will increase the level of suffering and injustice in the world. However, your personal value system and sense of justice can reach a higher standard. Use your moral compass to avoid the temptations to be sneaky or mean. You can draw on this aspect to be more generous towards people less fortunate than yourself. Your charitable nature may extend to environmental causes or animal welfare.

 While other factors in the Full Moon chart may cause disappointment, loss and suffering, Jupiter trine Neptune will focus attention on social justice and human rights issues like the plight of refugees and other innocent victims or war and greed. Your enthusiasm and belief can cause others to congregate around you for a common cause. In this time of political unrest, this could be a call to rally your friends to protest, have parties to write postcards to your elected officials, or lend your support to those feeling bereft. It's not all bad out there, just stay true to your highest and greatest good, just don't expect others to follow suit. Blessed be, and we'll see you soon!
