Full Moon Penumbral Lunar Eclipse in Gemini ~ November 28, 2012 Can I SEE the Eclipse?
Full Moon Cleansing Spell
With the sun in Sagitarius in direct opposition and numerous bodies squaring off, this Lunar Eclipse in the Full Gemini moon promises to be a very interesting time for us all. A total eclipse of the Full Moon in Gemini is a time for Karmic reblancing, and becoming a master at juggling relationships and the myriad of challenges we all face during this very busy time of year.
Focusing on endings or culminations, relationships may transform in some way, or even end! If you are looking to end a relationship this transit may be of assistance. Lunar eclipses give energy to endings, however, be mindful of Geminiís tendencies to speak too rashly. Use the power of Gemini to find BALANCE in your communication, and what may have ended badly could return to balance and find a whole new beginning.
Projects that are in the works will be coming to a close, and plans that are already in process may begin now to show return. Endings are not necessarily bad; they can also be a time of change and rich rewards...think HARVEST!
Since this lunar eclipse happens during Gemini, all the influences of this sign will be highlighted for everyone. The twins will be focused on duality, juggling multiple tasks, creative spontaneity and focused communication. Problem areas might include indecisiveness and fickleness.
You are likely going to feel extra pressure with the Holidays upon us, finding yourself pulled in many different directions all at once. Be open to spontaneous gatherings and chance; this is a chatty time when everyone is very open to communication, but everything must not be so "deep" all the time. While it is a good time to get things out in the open and clear the air, it can also be fun for fun's sake!
Don't let the stress of this busy time overwhelm you. Adopt a very "go with the flow" attitude and remember to take care of yourself. Embrace the opportunities available during this transit and let the powerful emphasis on communication bring lasting change to your life!
The Light of the Full Moon is a very powerful energy that charges us whether we focus on it or not. We can use this energy to make our spells more powerful, by aligning with that energy and making it work for us. One way that the Full Moon energy can be utilized is by Cleansing...use the power of the upcoming full moon to cleanse your life!

Fire proof cauldron or cooking pot to toss the burning paper inside
Candle with matches (complimentary matches with Sacred Mists Purchase) or lighter,
Salt or sand (to put out the fire afterwards)
Smudge sticks or
incense for cleansing.
Magickal Paper and pen
1.Create a sacred space and arrange a time to perform the ceremony (preferably at nighttime and outdoors under the moonlight).
2. Write down on separate slips of paper the things you want to release or change.
3. Cleanse your sacred area with an opening prayer, a sage smudging, and/or by burning some incense. Invite your guides, angels, masters, or teachers to be at your side throughout the ceremony.
4. Light one or more candles. Look to the skies. Breathe in the night air.
5. One by one, read out loud the words you have written on each slip of paper. Set your intention to release the item/addiction/attitude from your life. Set it to fire and place it in the cauldron. If you have a campsite barbecue or bonfire going that's cool, just toss the slips of paper into the fire one by one. If you are doing this ritual with a group of others take turns reading your words. If these things are too personal to read out loud, read them silently to yourself.
Just remember... our words have power. Saying - "Be Gone" audibly and loudly can be very freeing.
Go ahead, howl at the moon if you've a mind to. Have some fun!
Thank the spirits. Be safe. Put out the fire.
