The Full Moon on December 3 2017 falls at 11º Gemini decan 2. The Full Moon falls in the constellation of Orion which means the collective has a mind to be provocative and will enjoy living on the edge. The aspects of this Full Moon are a T-square with Neptune and a karmic quincunx aspect to Jupiter. Both these planets are connected with religion. Neptune has a more esoteric and mystical approach while Jupiter is associated with organized religions. Negatively however, Jupiter has a tendency towards zealousness and extremism
Orion is the most lusty, phallic constellation in the sky, rivaling only Aries and Taurus in virility. He also has quite a Jupiter quality. But where the Ram and the Bull are fueled by procreation and biology, Orion loves the conquest and courtship of sex. The chase is the best bit, lots of twists and turns, intrigue, titillation and teasing. The Gemini twins here then are extra inquisitive, intellectually daring, and their mind is as agile as their bodies. They need to have this acrobatic ability since their propensity for living on the edge means they often have to make very narrow escapes! Watch some interesting mental manipulations and intellectual gymnastics in the media at this time. The truth, like Gemini can very, very flexible.
On a personal level, those touched by this Full Moon may find themselves torn between parental duties and their passions. The passion could be their career, life-calling or just wild and uncontrollable pleasure-seeking. There will be the problem of wanting to be everything to everyone and spreading themselves too thin. The most negative manifestation of this position could be a managerial or parental style that is controlling, but disguised as nurturing. At this Full Moon, speed can become a drug with an adrenaline buzz from riding the roller-coaster between work and home.
Full Moon Aspects & Fixed Star
Tabit is found in the lion’s skin that Orion holds so triumphantly. This is a great warrior and needs to display his trophy’s. “Orion will fashion alert minds and agile bodies, souls prompt to respond to duty’s call, and hearts which press on with unflagging energy in spite of every trial.” ~ Manilus. Orion’s sexual energy seems to be about conquering territory; his sword hangs suggestively below his belt. If you look at naked Orion in a sky without light pollution and cloud, the phallus is very clear! For the Egyptians, Orion was Osiris and we know that this missing member was an important element of his resurrection..
Full Moon square Neptune. In positions of power the Moons popularity and Neptune’s mystique can be used as a smokescreen to cover up corruption. Those who work in the very Neptunian, spiritual arena can be tempted to abuse their care-taking/guru position. Neptune can rule deception, lies and delusion. Therefore Moon square Neptune can have criminal tendencies in its very lowest vibration. The Moon can fall victim to negative Neptune because of its tendency to do things unconsciously. The Moon (Public) can be very easily hypnotised by Neptune’s promise of salvation.
Full Moon quincunx Jupiter. Protection is BIG here, and parents will be incredibly nurturing, warm and generous to those in their care. Of course though, with Jupiter there is always the danger of going over-the-top. The temptation to indoctrinate children or pupils to fanatically follow a group’s own beliefs is very high. At this Full Moon certain members of the public can’t help but become completely enamored by a belief system, be it political or religious.
