When the Sun moves through Sagittarius at this time each year, the Full Moon is always in the opposite sign, Gemini. These two signs are the ones most associated with the media and news. It’s not surprising for people with planets in Gemini or Sagittarius to be featured at this time. A Full Moon generally brings a culmination or blossoming, or sometimes it means the end of a situation; we’re “full,” we’ve had enough.
Here are some of the people now in the news who have planets in their birth charts near the degree of this Gemini Full Moon.
Donald Trump – This Full Moon is about six months from his birthday (June 14, 1946), with the current Moon by his natal Sun (and Uranus) and the current Sun by his Natal Moon. He was born at a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon, with a Sagittarius Moon opposite his Gemini Sun. (Eclipse babies seem to paint their life’s portrait on a canvas larger than other people’s.) The Articles for his impeachment are being prepared by the House Judiciary Committee Chairman, Jerry Nadler, whose birthday is the day before Trump’s a year later (June 13, 1947). The current Full Moon is near his natal Sun and Uranus, too. The current Full Moon is 45 degrees (“semisquare”) with the current Uranus, a link that produces friction. Uranus is the planet of surprises, as well as rebellion, and is related to the masses. We’ll see if there are any surprises; there’s certainly a restlessness in the populace as we face this monumental moment in our country’s history.
Other people with the Sun in Gemini who are in the spotlight at this Gemini Full Moon are Attorney General William Barr (May 23, 1950), whose controversial comments about the Justice Department Inspector General’s report into the origins of the Russian investigation have caused a ruckus this week; Carter Page (June 3, 1971), a foreign policy advisor to the Trump campaign who was surveiled by the FBI and was a subject of the IG’s review; and Vice President Mike Pence (June 7, 1959), who this week refused to declassify elements of his aide’s testimony in recent impeachment hearings regarding Pence’s September 18 call with Ukraine’s President, Volodymyr Zelensky (an Aquarius, born January 25, 1978) who has natal Neptune less than two degrees from the Sun’s current position. Neptune is associated with confusion, servitude and victimization, and there’s certainly some confusion as to whether he’s been victimized.
“Across the pond” in Britain, this Gemini Full Moon coincides with a general election for a new Prime Minister on Dec. 12, 2019. The choice is between two candidates with not only the Sun in Gemini, but Mercury and Venus in Gemini, too: Boris Johnson (June 19, 1964) and Jeremy Corbyn (May 26, 1949). The Full Moon degree is exactly at Johnson’s Mercury, the ruling planet of Gemini, and only three degrees from Corbyn’s Mercury and another degree further from Corbyn’s Venus. Johnson has Venus less than a degree from his Sun, a combination that generally bodes well for popularity.
Time’s “Person of the Year” for 2019 is Swedish teenage climate activist, Greta Thunberg. Although not a Gemini (she’s a Capricorn, born January 3, 2003), her natal Pluto is close to the Sun’s degree at this Full Moon, and her natal Saturn is across the way in Gemini, not far from the Full Moon. While this is true for her peers born in 2002-2003, what makes it personal for her is Pluto is halfway between her Venus and Sun, a “midpoint” that blends values and leadership.
Speaking of midpoints, Rudy Guiliani’s indicted business associate, Lev Parnas has couple of midpoints in the crosshairs of this Full Moon. His Jupiter and Neptune, both in Sagittarius, blend at the degree of the current Sun, as do his natal Sun (in Aquarius; he’s born February 6, 1972) and Uranus (in Libra). Such combinations point to someone whose friends (associated with the sign Aquarius and its ruling plane, Uranus) who might be in the shadows or in shady dealings (related to Neptune, with its traits amplified by big Jupiter). He’s back in the headlines for a hearing to revoke his bail and keep him locked up as a potential flight risk. His friend, Guiliani (May 28, 1944), has the Sun in Gemini, and although not at the Full Moon degree, he does have key midpoints at this degree, blending his Sun-Uranus duo with Saturn at the top of his chart, called the Midheaven. (This is the most powerful place to have this planet of power.) While he most certainly has friends in high places, Rudy’s relationship currently in the news is his divorce from his third wife. On December 10, they settled out of court. Divorce is related to Uranus, a planet of separation, and the top point of a chart indicates status. It’s very fitting to divorce at a Full Moon at the midpoint of Uranus and the Midheaven.
This run-down gives you a good idea of what kind of culminations come at a Full Moon. We have a Full Moon every month. Different people are in its path when their birth planets are touched by the Full Moon’s degree.
