The Mahina Piha will peak on Pōʻalua, December 29, 2020 in 14° of Ka-Māhana at 8:29 PM Mauna Time
WHAT IS A MAHINA PIHA?
The Full Moon is the climax of the lunar month that corresponds with the transitions from youth to maturity in the life cycles, ovulation in the menstrual cycles and the culmination of the Summer season with the Solstice. It marks the midpoint of the lunar month. This Moon phase is considered Yang, meaning a time to take action—it’s a kāne energy. When we have a Mahina Piha, ka Lā and ka Mahina are in opposition to each other. Ka Mahina acts like a mirror and reflects ka Lā’s light onto ka Honua.
Metaphorically speaking, this is operating like a lighthouse and showing us the path we must take to continue on with our Mahina Hou (New Moon) intentions. We’ll start to figure out what has worked and what didn’t work from the past two weeks, and our next steps will become very obvious. This will usually manifest as things to release that aren’t in alignment with our goals for this particular Moon Cycle. It doesn’t matter if we set intentions or not, we’ll be feeling called to let go of a lot of shit right now. This could be material things, relationships, toxic behavior patterns, or even unconscious thoughts that aren’t aligned with our ʻoiaʻiʻo (truth). Be open to the process, because it’ll happen anyway.
Since the Mahina is in the kaha kokiaka (zodiac sign) of Ka-Māhana, we’ll feel called to let go of things that will allow us to make changes in different parts of our lives. Your pakuhi hānau (Sidereal Natal Chart) contains mau hale (houses) that will give you intel as to what areas of your life need these changes. All you need to know is what kaha kokiaka (zodiac sign) your ʻekolu nui (big 3: Sun, Moon + Rising) are in.
With Gemini and Sagittarius involved in this tug o’ war, we may be seeing how what we thought was the truth was really more of a perception. The Gemini/Sagittarius axis deals with our quest for knowledge, and our ability to network and communicate with others or ourselves. So when you realize the truth are you going to apply was you learned from it and change or distract yourself from it? While I’m not condoning the latter, it’ll be completely normal no matter the path you choose. In general, it’ll be a challenging time for Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn and Pisces—REMEMBER, THIS IS BASED OFF YOUR SIDEREAL NATAL CHART, NOT WESTERN/TROPICAL!
MANA O KA-MĀHANA (Energy of Gemini)
Gemini is associate with socializing and communication. Theyʻre curious, witty and talkative and can sometimes be flighty, distracted and scattered. I like to think of Gemini as two individual energies that are connected and function as one. Most Geminiʻs can do the work of two because they have quick, high functioning minds. Some might label them to be two-faced at times because they easily embody two opinions, feelings, or states of being simultaneously. Gems are always texting, multitasking, learning, thinking, and going places. I rarely see someone with strong Gemini placements sit still or be quiet. If they are, theyʻre probably tapping something and about to burst at the seems with something to say.
SIDEBAR: Kamala Harris is a great example of Gemini energy as she has a Gemini Rising in her Sidereal Natal Chart. Her Sun is also in Libra and her Moon is in Pisces. She could be one that says one thing and does another based on how she feels. With that Libra and Gemini energy, sheʻs no stranger to playing the devilʻs advocate too, itʻs a double whammy of that duality energy. While she might make choices to win the favor of others, she could swing to the other spectrum later.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Know when itʻs time to let things go that arenʻt aligned with your true nature. Donʻt just talk about things, make the changes you need to make RIGHT NOW. Take action, donʻt let yourself get distracted. Slow down a little and keep it real with yourself and others. Find balance between wanting to know everything and taking the time learn what you can.
Be careful because the mind becomes very active with Gemini energy so you might have tons of ideas and it could make it hard to decide which one to do first. Write down a list of your ideas and put them in order of priority or what sounds best and do one at a time.
HOW THIS WILL AFFECT YOU
In order to get an accurate interpretation of how this will influence you based on your birth chart, you must know your ʻekolu nui—Sun, Moon, and Rising signs. So for example, Iʻll use mine. Iʻm an Aries Sun, Capricorn Moon, Cancer Rising. This is activating my 3rd, 6th, and 12th mau hale, so how am I communicating with myself in way that is sabotaging my health or daily habits?
