Full Moon in Gemini, November 2023:
Hearty Physicality, Within Limits
The November Full Moon in Gemini occurs November 27 at 04º51 Gemini, 1:17 AM Pacific time. This Full Moon features an extremely tense aspect pattern called a T-square. As such, this lunation will highlight a lot of conflicting desires and tendencies.
Full Moon in Gemini: Information and Rationale
The November Full Moon in logical Gemini is opposite the Sun in hyperbolic Sagittarius. Mars and Ceres are also conjunct the Sun in Sagittarius. The combination of Mars and Ceres in this Mutable Fire sign conveys a strong tendency towards opinions and ethical considerations. Additionally, it carries the potential for exaggeration, embellishment, and prejudice. We may find ourselves passionately arguing a dogma with very little room to hear another perspective. Furthermore, we may feel that by making the arguments we’re making, that we are taking care of others.
The Moon in Gemini, on the other hand, appeals to pure logic and factual information. It refrains from forming definite opinions. Instead, it stays detached enough to see information objectively and accurately. However, it may come off as apathetic or uninvolved on an emotional or moral level. The more we lean into the rational and the detached, the more others may seem to get fired up with their opinion. Conversely, the more we indulge our opinions and the more dogmatic we become, the more others will maintain a cold logic. They will pierce through our hot air with pure fact and unruffled intellect.
Full Moon in Gemini: Compassion as a Mediator
This November Full Moon features an agitating T-square with Saturn in Pisces at its apex. As the mediator of the opposition between Sagittarius and Gemini, Saturn in Pisces seeks to balance the seesaw of restless energy and scattered focus. However, Saturn in Pisces’s focus is soft, not hard. In order to find a balance, we must relax into focus rather than use force.
Saturn in Pisces may also hold the key to our communication problems. If we are able to remember that we are all connected, and bring compassion into the conversation, we may be able to resolve any disagreements. When we notice ourselves arguing on pure principle without the support of data, we can interrupt this need to be right by putting ourselves in others’ shoes. On the other hand, if we notice ourselves avoiding ethical considerations and remaining impartial, we can use compassion to infuse our information with a sense of justice and care. We can empathize with the pain of others.

Full Moons are moments of polarity and confrontation, as lived through interpersonal interactions. During the November Full Moon in Gemini, we can realign our communication with a deeper level of understanding by engaging emotionally and spiritually. Our integrity can blend with a recognition that we are all one: all living beings, non-living beings, and our entire planet.
We can ask ourselves: What is the line between objectivity and apathy? How can we maintain accuracy, logic, and the ability to see different perspectives without becoming too detached? What can we do to prevent ourselves by getting too deeply entrenched in our own narratives? How can we stay open minded and avoid falling into dogma and prejudice?

Moon in Gemini: Impartiality, Lightness, and Diversity of Perspective
The Moon in Gemini wants to gather as many perspectives as it can, so it can better understand the world and how it works as a network of information. In contrast to narrative-loving Sagittarius, Gemini connects the dots in a web of ideas. Gemini is capable of abstraction and great intellectual breadth because of its ability to anticipate many perspectives and loci of information at once.
On the other hand, Sagittarius uses a moral framework to frame an argument. However, it may not care to understand a diversity of perspectives, preferring instead to lean into the one it feels righteous about.
