GEMINI FULL MOON
December 13, 2016 @ 7:05 PM EST
Numerology of the Day: 7
[12/13/2016 = 1+2+1+3+2+0+1+6 = 16 = 1+6 = 7]
It took God 6 days to create the world, and on the 7th day he rested. Accordingly, 7 is the number that prompts us to stop, seek out solitude, and meditate on the idea of scientific perfection. 7 is also considered a lucky number. From the days of the week to the traditional planets of the solar system, 7 is a highly symbolic number that helps us here on earth make some sense of the the world we live in. Maybe that’s why it takes 7 years to graduate from the teenage stage of life, to process everything absorbed in childhood and reach some level of mature understanding. By the completion of the third set of 7 year intervals, the 21 year old is universally recognized as a legal, consenting adult. It’s a coming of age story that is liberating, but potentially terrifying for those who fear the consequences of their own free will.
Major Arcana Tarot Correspondence: The Lovers
As the sixth card in the tarot’s Major Arcana, The Lovers evokes the balance needed to unify life’s opposing forces, the best example of which is the fateful union of two stars that are bound by divine celestial orchestration to cross paths. The nature of such an encounter could go either way, but whether it is the dawn of an incomparable romance or the figurative golden apple that incites the best epic, the archetypal attraction depicted in this card has the power to alter the course of history.
As profound as it can be, a love like this isn’t guaranteed to last forever, although its myth might just be legendary. This energy is subject to changes of heart, clandestine love affairs, and the scandalous revelation of a double life. Paradise is as easily indulged as it is revoked by a higher power or, perhaps worse, coveted by envious onlookers. There is no way to anticipate how it will all end, so the only option is to be mindful of all associations and to adapt to the infinite variety of variables at any given moment.
The Full Moon is the monthly separation of the Sun [ego, identity, expression] and Moon [empathy, intuition, emotion], as they assume their most distant positions in opposite signs. This great space between our luminary bodies allows for a more comprehensive awareness of the energy that has been building, as the moon is illuminated to maximum capacity, revealing momentarily the mysteries of the creation cycle that once were [and will be again] concealed behind the nocturnal veil. Just as visibility increases to supernatural proportions, the emotional atmosphere is heightened prompting what seem to be unusual experiences and outbursts. The earthly realm becomes a mirror image of this cosmic standoff. Holistic awareness and dynamic self-expression are the blessings of the full moon, but a long overdue confrontation could be the prerequisite roadblock that makes it challenging to receive them. The goal is to recognize hidden facets of self instead of projecting dark revelations onto partners/opponents. Then and only then will personal balance be made possible, and thus all else is resolved. In the meantime, as the opposition builds, be prepared to go back and forth.
