Full Moon in Gemini: Revisioning Doctrines
Friday, November 23rd, 2018  (at 12.39 am EST - 00 deg 52’)

With this lunation, it might not be a bad idea to set ground rules for a code of conduct at Thanksgiving dinner.

This Full Moon is in the sign of Gemini, opposite the  Sun in Sagittarius.

A Full Moon occurs when the Sun and Moon are exactly opposite each other by sign, representing the symbolic POLARITY that the opposing signs represent.

This lunation is about taking a deep dive into the belief systems that inform our world view, turning them over, and shaking loose the broken pieces.

The Gemini/Sagittarius polarity is symbolic of the analytic mind versus the intuitive mind, logic versus  faith.

Jupiter, the planet that rules expansion, spirituality, and growth, recently entered Sagittarius, a sign under Jupiter’s rule, and will remain there for an entire year.

Jupiter plays a major role in this lunation, being closely conjoined the Sun (at 03 deg 16’ Sagittarius).

Jupiter expands whatever he touches; when in balance, the energy of Jupiter can symbolize growth, but can rapidly lead to excess and unrealistic optimism if expectations are left unchecked.

Mercury is also in the sign of Sagittarius at 10 deg 18’, conjoined with the Sun and Jupiter.

Mercury is Gemini’s natural ruler, and is in detriment in Sagittarius …

planets in detriment usually play out in the mental and emotional arenas, translating to worry, unease, nervousness, and not feeling “at home”.

Adding Mercury’s retrograde status to the mix, old ideas and dogmas can be confronted; we can spend time now reassessing what belief systems we should rethink … or throw away altogether.

Aaaaand …. 

Mars in Pisces (at 04 deg 32’) forms a T-square with the Sun/Moon opposition, poking the fire and fanning the flames even further.

Which brings us to …

In the US, this lunation falls on Thanksgiving, a national holiday, typically celebrated with families of all political persuasions getting together to feast …devolving into dysfunctional family dynamics …

With this lunation, it might not be a bad idea to set ground rules for a code of conduct at Thanksgiving dinner.

(I would be interested to hear how this played out for you and yours, my friends!)

FULL MOON Forecasts for every sign:
If you know your ascendant (also known as the “rising sign”), read the forecast for that sign as well as for your sun sign for a more personalized view of this lunation cycle.

Full Moon in the THIRD HOUSE
For the FULL MOON, the energies will be abundant, accessible and inspiring. You are able to divine a deeper meaning now to the patterns of daily life. The  Full Moon in your third house indicates that your communications with others could be very subjective, where it may be difficult to keep your objectivity  because of personal feelings. Try not to take your environment for granted to the point where you respond automatically; you could really put your foot in your mouth without realizing it! On the plus side, you can communicate those things that carry great importance for you with deep emotion and feeling.
THIRD HOUSE: siblings and neighbors, communications, writing, speaking, everyday transportation, written tests, study, short trips.

Full Moon in the SECOND HOUSE
Be Careful how you handle your money around the FULL  MOON, since your judgement may be clouded by an outmoded  ideal. Focus instead on how you can make better use of  your resources, and wait before making any major purchases. The Full Moon in your second house may find you more emotionally identified with your values than usual, or even strongly attached to possessions and material objects. Remember, it's not the object that's so important to you but the emotional content it represents. The second house also represents what you truly value, and you can now  assess what is truly essential to who you are and what  is not.
SECOND HOUSE: personal income, values, finances, resources,  security issues, needs.

Full Moon in the FIRST HOUSE
Be careful in your dealings with others around the FULL  MOON; though you will be full of energy, be careful that you don't put others off around this time by being overly aggressive or appearing selfish. Make good use  of this time by focusing and directing your extra energy into worthwhile projects. The Full Moon in your first house finds you needing to relate to friends and loved  ones, and you are in tune with the feelings of those around you. You can be emotionally very giving with this transit, but you can also be emotionally demanding as well, especially if you feel you've been giving a lot. Best now to give without expecting return. New beginnings, energy and self-assertion are highlighted for you today. 
FIRST HOUSE: Beginnings, the personality, the physical body, personal affairs and ventures.

Full Moon in the TWELFTH HOUSE
Be careful not to expose secrets or share too much information around the FULL MOON, as hidden matters may now come to light, esp. pertaining to your health or workplace. Deep transformation through psychotherapy, holistic bodywork, diet, or personal ritual is heightened now. The Full Moon in your twelfth house may find you more sensitive than usual, especially regarding your emotional life. The danger is if you try to hide unconscious attitudes from yourself, by  suppressing them they tend to control you. You are in touch with your deepest self, and memories, dreams and parallel realities may be colliding within you. Hidden matters come to light, and silent observation can help you more now than ever. A time to go within before next month's Full Moon in  your sign.
TWELFTH HOUSE: solitude, introspection, research and investigation, therapy, the subconscious realm, psychic abilities, dreams.

Full Moon in the ELEVENTH HOUSE
Networking and friends can be especially beneficial this FULL MOON... the energy will be at a peak at the Full Moon, and since this should be a particularly social time for you now, it can be well spent with friends and those who share 
a common interest. Just make sure to exercise caution, and watch out for the Full Moon intensity! The Full Moon in your eleventh house may signify a time when friends are more emotionally important to you than usual, and would be a good time to tell them how much they mean to you. This is also a good time to examine your goals, and ask yourself if they are truly relevent to your life now, or if they are outmoded desires you just haven't been able to let go of. Great energy for networking and focusing on group projects in general!
ELEVENTH HOUSE: group activities, networking, friends, hopes and wishes, earned income, goals, community.

Full Moon in the TENTH HOUSE
The FULL MOON will highlight your tenth house of career and public acclaim, making sudden changes in those areas possible. Make good use of this transformative energy, and consciously direct it to the target of your choice. Be extra tactful when dealing with authority figures now; all eyes are upon you, so show your true colors. The Full Moon in your tenth house may find you feeling tested as far as professional or business matters are concerned; there exists a tendency now to blur the line between professional and personal relationships. You could make your private life public unwittingly, so be careful how much you say to whom! You are more responsive in general to the general mood of the professional environment, and can excel in sales or public relations work now. 
TENTH HOUSE: career, honors, business, public acclaim, authority figures, parents.

Full Moon in the NINTH HOUSE
The FULL MOON period will bring heightened awareness and insight, and added depth to spiritual practices. Be careful, however, what you say or write, since it's possible you’ll be misinterpreted. In your quest for knowledge, this month will yield abundant sources of information, if you are focused and persistent. The Full Moon is in your ninth house, where you may want to escape the everyday grind. You could  be feeling restless, but you don't need to get out of town to get away. Try exploring something new... something that's  always intrigued you, but you haven't made time for. Right now,  it could be a very practical thing to do, since your spirit will feel renewed, and you won't feel so restricted if you know you can always leave your worries behind... at least, for a little while, with the powers of your mind.
NINTH HOUSE: expanding one's horizons; travel, religious or intellectual learning, teaching, philosophy, legal activities, publishing.

Full Moon in the EIGHTH HOUSE
Around the FULL MOON this month the focus is high on your  financial situation, and will be an excellent opportunity to get things in order regarding taxes, savings and joint financial ventures of any kind. Exercise caution at this
time regarding these matters as well, and wait until after the next New Moon to move forward on them. The Full Moon in your eighth house could bring an intensity to your emotional experiences, and you may attract as well as be attracted to people that stir you emotionally. There could be a tendency for possessiveness with this aspect, but if you focus on connecting emotionally, then you can relax and trust. Merging, sharing, spiritual and metaphysical matters are highlighted for you today.
EIGHTH HOUSE: joint resources, financial dealings with others, legacies, inheritance, merging, death, sex, subconscious complexes, surgery.

Full Moon in the SEVENTH HOUSE
Focus on teamwork around the FULL MOON, as energy will be high, and opposition likely. Try to be flexible, and don't push your point too much at this time. Relationship issues are likely to dominate, and sensitivity will be extremely high, so be gentle! Count to ten before you comment, as others may see you as overly critical now. So... try to be full of healing and compassion instead! The Full Moon in your seventh house can focus you on your most personal relationships; a great night for spending time with the one you love. The seventh house also represents opponents, and if you are to engage in conflict now, it may be more difficult to maintain objectivity or detachment. Think before you say anything... and make sure to count to ten (at least) if someone rubs you the wrong way! Harmony, cooperation and  balance are a positive focus for you today.
SEVENTH HOUSE: personal and business partnerships, learning  cooperation, teamwork, marriage, bringing something to the public.

Full Moon in the SIXTH HOUSE
Careful what you say around the workplace around the FULL MOON, as secret motives may be exposed, and confidences betrayed. Curb your urge to talk about your plans too much to others, especially co-workers. Gossip could go overboard, so stay out of it and take care of business. Focus on utilizing the intense energies for organization and taking care of details. The Full Moon in your sixth house can find you putting emotional considerations aside in favor of immediate necessities. The sixth house rules issues of health and service, and would be a good time to take steps in a positive direction regarding these matters. Don't get caught up playing the martyr or repressing your emotions, since it could leave you hypercritical or feeling victimized. Details, organization and daily tasks are highlighted today. 
SIXTH HOUSE: health, habits, routines, jobs and employment,  diet, service to others.

Full Moon in the FIFTH HOUSE
The FULL MOON will find you extremely charged and ready for fun... however, be prepared for the needs of others to interfere with your plans. Get any important obligations out of the way, and schedule time for yourself. Working on a creative project or starting a new hobby would be a productive way to harness the intense energy now. The Full Moon in your fifth house will find you projecting your emotions now more than usual; this is a time when you really need to be yourself, and allow yourself to experience your emotions with greater depth. This could sometimes translate to overprotectiveness in your desire to take care of others. Tap into the creative energies today; the fifth house rules romance as well as creativity and recreation, so make sure you have some fun!
FIFTH HOUSE: romance, arts, entertainment, creativity, children, investments, gambling, fun.

Full Moon in the FOURTH HOUSE
Issues pertaining to the home environment could be in high focus around the FULL MOON ... Make sure you are expressing cooperation through your actions, and work to further a common goal, especially when it comes to parents, children or loved ones. The Full Moon in your fourth house brings a tendency to escape to your own little world; you need to get away from public life, and home is probably your best bet. This is a good time to look within at your emotional attitudes toward the world in general; a good time to look at how past conditioning controls your life at this time. Home, meditation, finishing a matter, real estate, decorating, family and parents are also matters ruled by the fourth house, and could be especially significant now.
FOURTH HOUSE: home life, parents, remodeling, relocating, clearing old business, plans for the future.
