November 30, 2020, brings a Partial Lunar Eclipse in the sign of Gemini.
Lunar Eclipses are like extra potent Full Moons. They illuminate areas of our lives that need to be cleared and swept away. They shine a light on all that no longer needs to be present with us.
They reveal to us where we are holding on too tightly, and where we have to surrender and let go.
Lunar Eclipses are potent for they require us to shed. This shedding can leave us feeling vulnerable, afraid, or uncertain of what is to come. But this Lunar Eclipse holds the promise of a brighter season coming.
It reminds us that whatever space is created by its presence will soon become fertile ground, ready to be adorned with new seeds when the timing comes.
Under this Lunar Eclipse if something falls away from your life. If something comes to pass, try and hold a feeling of trust in your heart.
Eclipses are said to bring fated or destined events our way that are aligned with our highest growth in mind. On a Lunar Eclipse, if something exits your life, trust that it was meant to be. Trust that there is a Divine purpose to what is now no longer.
Of course, endings can always be painful and even sad. So give yourself space to grieve, give yourself permission to feel all that floats up from the depths of your own underbelly.
Under the influence of this Eclipse, we are also being guided to step into our divine feminine. The energy of the divine feminine is not about gender. It is an expression of energy that rules over the hidden, shadow side.
It represents the knowingness in the unknown and the creative qualities that arise when we are in the void.
This strong feminine energy comes from the Goddess influences of Vesta, Eris, Black Moon Lilith, and Ceres.
These cosmic bodies, all named after powerful Goddesses, are active under the power of this Full Moon Eclipse, and they each have an important message to share.
The asteroid Vesta is the Goddess of hearth and fire. She calls for us to tend to our own inner fire and to nurture our own inner spark. She reminds us that when we tend to our inner flame, we are able to connect with our creativity, our inner strength, and our passion.
Eris is a dwarf planet that is located beyond Pluto. She is known as the Goddess of discord and strife, but she only walks this path when she knows we can rise up to the occassion. When things are not in balance, it is her chaos that helps us correct our ways. When it is time to move on, it is her chaos that pushes us to grow.
Black Moon Lilith is a cosmic marking between the Moon and the Earth. It is a highly charged point in our cosmic skies that indicates freedom and liberation. The Goddess Black Moon Lilith allows repressed emotions to float to the surface so we can release, heal, and let them go.
Finally, Ceres is the Goddess asteroid of fertility and renewal. Her presence reminds us to nurture and nourish ourselves. She calls for us to spend time in nature, to practice self-care, and to tend very gently to our mother wound. Her presence also indicates the arrival of a harvest point.
Take the offerings that these Goddesses bring. Allow their wisdom to float into being and touch the areas of your spirit that they need to.
Tend to your own inner fire. Allow any chaos to shift and move you in the direction of growth. Let those repressed emotions out. Be sure to nurture and nourish yourself as you honor any harvest points of your life.
Tenderly love yourself through whatever the Lunar Eclipse brings your way. Allow yourself to feel completely nourished by the powers of the divine feminine.
As this Full Moon Eclipse falls in Gemini, the sign of the twins, we can use their symbolism to guide us through the lunar energies.
In ancient mythology, the twins were said to represent both the seen, tangible world and the unseen, intangible world. One twin was from this Earth, and the other was not.
These twins are signifiers of both the human and the being that make us human beings. They remind us that we are not just a physical body but a soul as well.
Whatever unfolds on this Eclipse is likely to stir both our physical bodies and our spiritual bodies.
We may find that we are dealing with both of these elements in some way. We may find both our seen and unseen worlds affected or intersecting in a way that we didn’t notice before.
We may even start to become more consciously aware of how our inner state influences our outer state and the way we choose to see things.
Gemini is an air sign, which is rules our mind. Our mind has the power to paint the picture we choose to see. Our mind has the power to take events and attach stories to them.
It is these stories that can trip us up more than the events themselves. It is the stories we tell ourselves that create a lot of stress and anguish in our lives.
Under the power of this Gemini Lunar Eclipse, see if you can calm your mind by releasing any stories that are no longer serving you. See if you can step out of overthinking and into a state of just being.
The twins teach us that we are both human and being, so see if you can find this balance.
See if you can shift away from the ego of your human side, which we very often get wrapped up in, and take time to just honor the still beingness that you are.
Lunar Eclipses always put us where we are meant to be, so no matter what is stirred for you, trust that the pieces will land where they need to.
Use the magical energies of this Lunar Eclipse to connect with your divine feminine, and the totality of all that you are.
You are an incredible being of the cosmos and as the Moon loses its light due to the shadow of the Earth, it is imprinted with a kiss from our collective consciousness, and with this kiss, the Moon offers back its magic, strengthening us for harvest or for release.
