”We cannot control the way people interpret our ideas or thoughts, but we can control the words and tones we choose to convey them. Peace is built on understanding, and wars are built on misunderstandings. Never underestimate the power of a single word, and never recklessly throw around words. One wrong word, or misinterpreted word, can change the meaning of an entire sentence – and even start a war. And one right word, or one kind word, can grant you the heavens and open doors.”
—Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun
FULL MOON takes place at [7:47 am pst, 8:47 am mst, 9:47 am cst, 10:47 am est] in Gemini. Peak of conversations that take place in our lives. Peak of inner talk and outer-negotiations. This is a FULL MOON of COMMUNICATIONS. How do our communications make or break projects, situations, and the world?
How are communications changing? How do they need to change? How do we need to change our communications functions, style, awareness, and skills?
Mercury (now Retrograde), Saturn and Neptune, are directly related to the full moon and offering forces of dynamic tension, for the end of the year transitions before the bigger transition in early 2018.
NEPTUNE is SQUARE to the Full Moon axis, meaning there is a lot going on and each of us may feel some amount of chaos, or that “going with the flow,” and “what people say they want,” (or what WE think we want)–is not the same. Balancing between “two realities,” that of what we or the people around us may want or direct, or “command,” as a result of their roll, thoughts, needs, or system they work for, and “what actually happens.” AND/OR “what the fabric of life is doing, underneath all those thoughts of people.”
Right now, this placement is in an awkward conversation between our personal selves, rising into full emotional awareness, while at the very end of the lowering Solar energy, bringing us down to resting our consciousness for the winter “reset.” Meanwhile the Mercury Retrograde adds humorous mix-ups, reversals, and circular experiences, that remind us that this place is more mysterious than we think and though it does operate in “cause and effect,” there are more and more subtle “causes,” to be aware of all the time.
Being a FULL MOON, the “business,” and pressure build up that can be involved in timing things with a clock, can lessen. We ride the lunar energy all the way down now, for the next two weeks, until NEW MOON DECEMBER 17th.The Solar energy will come all the way down to its lowest point around the WINTER SOLSTICE on DECEMBER 21. This time will be a very low energy time of “stop and restart.” Revision, renewal, and a whole new year before us. A whole new cycle of creation–in the form of a “new year.”
May we all be gentle and give the gifts of compassion, care and support as we each continue to “melt down,” the “old world selves,” we thought we were, for the new world selves, which the world is calling for, even though we don’t yet know our “new selves” yet, they are coming, in response to all that pressures us to change.
May the giving up of caterpillar suits for butterflies, be easier and more graceful than we expect. May we each fly from the dense past in our own way.

Author’s Note: in the middle of moving the wolf pack and there is moment by moment chaos to manage, the redoing of how we do food, the whole re-making of how the pack lives. Fence Building is an emergency right now so any donations go toward fence building and outfitting the new place for the animals, so it is a safe, contained area for them as well as for those who live nearby. Any support is called for and appreciated, anything from helping to source materials, helping to build wolf-play areas, and sending money for materials!
