2010 Lunar Eclipse on the Winter Solstice, Full Moon in Gemini

For the first time in nearly 500 years, there will be a lunar eclipse on the Winter Solstice. This Moon will also be full in Gemini.

Full Moons highlight the completion and maturity of projects, and in this case the full moon/lunar eclipse will highlight the Gemini/Sagittarius polarity and themes of intelligence, thought, and communication. It is time to realize the power of our inner thoughts and desires, and to perhaps re-evaluate where we have been and on what path we are going.

Both the Sun and Moon are at 29 degrees (the Sun at 29 degrees Sagittarius and the Moon at 29 degrees Gemini), and they form a mutable T-square with Jupiter and Uranus, which can bring about new thought patterns and ways of looking at a situation. Again, this highlights the need to adapt to the changes that have occurred in our lives during recent months. Eclipses are also harbingers of change, so the feeling of a need or desire for change may feel urgent or pressing.

This eclipse is ruled by a retrograde Mercury; while this may snarl communications, Mercury retrograde also provides us with a time of reflection (perhaps on the changes that we feel we may need to make). This eclipse is one of change, thought, and reflection on who we are and where we are headed, as well as where we have been in the last few months.

May your skies be clear, your viewing pleasurable, and your personal reflection powerful.

I’ve very new to all of this, however, have found a great fascination with this article. Does this eclipse have special meaning for those of us born under the Gemini sign ?

Thank you
