The Moon is Full in Gemini on November 30, 2020, at 4:30 AM EST. This is an eclipse. A Full Moon
The Moon is Full in Gemini on November 30, 2020, at 4:30 AM EST. This is an eclipse.
A Full Moon occurs when the Sun in Sagittarius forms an opposition to the Moon in Gemini. The Full Moon is a time of culmination and the promise of fulfillment of that which was started at the New Moon. It is an emotional time – a time of romance, fertilization, and relationships.
When a Full Moon is a Lunar Eclipse like this one, it’s a more potent, powerful lunation that stimulates turning points and epiphanies.
There is more to this unfolding story since this eclipse set occurring along the Gemini-Sagittarius axis runs from June 2020 to December 2021. This one is the second eclipse along this sign axis.
Full Moons and Lunar Eclipses bring issues in our lives to fulfillment. Our emotions are heightened, and there is often some sort of drama involved with the house, sign, and any contacted planets activated by the Full Moon.
Look to 8-9 degrees of Gemini/Sagittarius in your own chart (allow up to about a 5-degree orb when examining the planets and points the eclipse aspects). This Lunar Eclipse gives us a cosmic push to make needed changes in our lives. The areas of life activated by the eclipse may see dramatic turns, after which the path is clear to move forward. Note that whatever happens at this time is nothing truly new. The issues have been brewing inside of us, and emotions have been building. Something comes to light at the time of the Lunar Eclipse, and if we get in touch with our emotions, we can get a better idea of what needs to change, or what needs to go.
The final eclipse in this set of Gemini/Sagittarius eclipses will happen in December 2021.
This Lunar Eclipse in Gemini heightens our awareness of flaws in the structures of our lives, particularly in our communications and transportation systems. Decisions made now are emotionally-driven. Some of us will be irritable and won’t know precisely why. Some may see only what they want to see while their common sense or objectivity is temporarily “eclipsed.” Discoveries are exaggerated, so keep this in mind.
Even so, this drama serves a purpose, and while we probably shouldn’t jump to act, we should pay attention to our feelings and discoveries.
With the Moon full and bright in the sky, symbolic “illumination” occurs in our lives. However, these new feelings and revelations are emotional ones, as there is a sense of emotions bursting forth into our consciousness.
It’s time to express ourselves and to let things out of our systems. Of course, we might want to exercise some care while doing so, knowing that what is coming out of us is new and not particularly rational as yet.
This is a time to work on clearing up past patterns that have been holding us back from personal fulfillment, particularly those that are communication-centered or that revolve around our attitudes, expressions, gestures, studies, and mobility. There will be more work to come in these areas, but for now, we are experiencing a greater awareness of problems and especially lacks or flaws, and they’re significant.
Through events, circumstances, and epiphanies occurring around the time of this eclipse, we learn that we need to get in touch with our needs to handle facts and figures, back up our beliefs with facts, and communicate/listen more clearly and effectively with one another.
We become aware of where we have been overdoing our attachment to beliefs and opinions.
Full Moons are always good for magnifying pre-existing problems so that we can see where to bring back balance. Our larger work should be on reaching a fair balance. Enlightenment now provides us with a golden opportunity to explore our emotional needs, which can ultimately lead to positive actions and decisions.
With the Gemini-Sagittarius axis involved, this Lunar Eclipse presses us to look more closely at the needs, lacks, and wants in our lives concerning the balance between Gemini-ruled and Sagittarius ruled areas of life. The Gemini-Sagittarius polarity is a mental axis, where Gemini represents the “lower mind,” and Sagittarius represents the “higher mind.”
Sagittarius symbolizes the quest for meaning and ideas that expand upon the here and now. Gemini recognizes the need to improve and perfect its immediate environment or neighborhood, while Sagittarius stimulates us to venture beyond. Neglecting either end of the axis will backfire. Ideally, we find a balance between the energies, and this is what the Lunar Eclipse invites us to do.
This eclipse is about communication, attitude, and our sense of adventure. Something has been building inside of us, and now is the time when the energy of the cosmos fairly demands that we let it out.
A sudden awareness of a lack in our lives provides us with a golden opportunity to explore our emotional needs within the context of the house polarity where the eclipse occurs in our natal charts. Relationships may be challenged, broken, or strengthened dramatically at this time. Our discovery is emotionally charged and dramatic. Epiphanies are likely to lead to propel us into affirmative action, although there can be some level of chaos initially.
The areas of life activated by the eclipse may see dramatic turns, after which the path is clear to move forward. Note that whatever happens at this time is nothing truly new. The issues have been brewing inside of us, and emotions have been building. Something comes to light at the time of the Lunar Eclipse, and if we get in touch with our emotions, we can get a better idea of what needs to change, or what needs to go.
On November 28, 2012, a Lunar Eclipse fell in Gemini at almost the same degree as the one occurring in 2020. It might be helpful to think back to issues in your life that were in effect around this time to get an idea of how this 2020 Lunar Eclipse affects you. Others at a similar degree occurred on November 29, 1993, and November 29, 1974.
You can also look back in a general sense to eclipse sets occurring along the same Gemini-Sagittarius axis as the current one in effect from June 2020 to December 2021. This can help give more information gleaned by looking to the past to understand themes in the present and future. The last time we had a set of Gemini-Sagittarius eclipses was from December 2010 to May 2013. Before that, a set occurred from December 2001 to November 2003, and another from December 1991 to May 1994. These are also periods of your past, if applicable, that may have had similar themes to this current eclipse set. Of course, even if they occurred at similar degrees, the other planets were represented differently, so the issues will not be identical, but specific themes can re-emerge.
Gemini-Sagittarius Eclipse sets (upcoming, current, and some in recent history):
- June 2029 to June 2031
- June 2020 to December 2021
- December 2010 to May 2013
- December 2001 to November 2003
- December 1991 to May 1994
- June 1982 to November 1984
The following lists the set of eclipses falling along the Gemini-Sagittarius axis in this set only (there were other eclipses between these since they overlap – the full chronological list of eclipses is at the end of this page):
- Penumbral LUNAR Eclipse June 5th, 2020 at 15:12:15 at 15° Sagittarius 34′
- Penumbral LUNAR Eclipse November 30th, 2020 at 4:29:32 at 8° Gemini 38′
- Total SOLAR Eclipse December 14th, 2020 at 11:16:26 at 23° Sagittarius 08′

- Total SOLAR Eclipse December 4th, 2021 at 2:42:51 at 12° Sagittarius 22′
This lunation occurs at 8 degrees and 38 minutes of Gemini, affecting people with personal planets and points at approximately 4 to 14 degrees of the Mutable signs (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces) most significantly.
