Full Moon in Gemini – Guess How Many Buddhist Quotes There Are About Fun

December 3, 2022

Do you feel the jolly holiday spirit? It is Sagittarius whispering in your ear. “You are in a great place; you are exactly where you should be. Things are going great; you are doing great. Life is good. Life is precious. There is so much to be grateful for.”

Sometimes when you are down, and people say these things to you, you want to smack them in the face, don’t you?

These statements are all true. But they are missing something, without which they are empty slogans. 

On Wednesday December 7, comes the full moon in Gemini to bring us some balance.

Gemini says, “Life is sometimes f***ing hard, painful, and confusing. But life is also good and precious. There is so much to be grateful for.”

Don’t get me wrong, Geminis love hardship as much as Tim Burton loves pink unicorns, but they are engaged with people and with life. They are connected to the human condition.

It’s true that sometimes Geminis are connected to life from a rather intellectual place, but they are still connected.

Sagittarius live in floating shinny castles, way above the clouds. Sometimes, and especially during Sagittarius season, they do us all a favor and spread some optimistic-joy-glitters on us.

Right now, everything feels so much in place. And it’s not that something really changed. Not everything depends on our worldview and life perspective, but so much does.

I wish I could savor this wonderful feeling, but I assume my own sun in Gemini would soon ask me to show her the money.

I promise to talk about the balance that we are asked to find this week, between sun in Sagittarius and moon in Gemini, but first, I’d like to talk about something that is mutual for both Gemini and Sagittarius, which is their love for fun.

You could argue that all signs love fun, and they just have a different idea about fun. You are probably right. But Sagittarius and Gemini stand out with their fun loving.

Weirdly enough, I had a big issue with fun. I also find that most of my clients have a hard time with fun.

Fun is not on our to do lists, which are impossible as it is, so anything that is not included, does not stand a chance.

I am the first one to admit that I take life, and myself, way too seriously.

Here is one thing that could explain why. Do you know how many Buddhist quotes there are about fun? None.

In the last years, I’ve learned the importance of fun. Having fun just for fun, without any hidden agenda, is the reason why I feel so much more optimistic these days. Fun is the fuel of laughter, joy, and happiness. Fun connects us to our inner child and brings out the creativity and innocence in us.

It’s great to seek happiness in disciplined meditation and yoga practices, but at the end of the day, if you don’t also have fun, can you really be happy?

In an episode of a TV show I watched with my five years old son, Dragon Rescue Riders, there were two guest characters, female fire fury dragons. All they wanted was to have fun. They were wild, reckless, irresponsible, and insensitive. They did not want to commit to anything and lived a nomad life. They were a stereotype of an exaggerated Sagittarius.

One of the protagonists of the show had to choose between her new fun-loving friends (Sagittarius) and staying with her rescue riders friends (Gemini). She chose the latter.

It was generally a good message that promoted the values of being in service to others, old lasting friendships, home, and family. But it also gave fun a bad name.

As an adult, I don’t need to be taught how bad fun can get. Fun can be destructive if you take it too far. Who has not suffered, at one point or another, from too much fun in the form of too much eating/drinking/partying/sex/drugs/something else (circle what’s relevant for you)?

It does not matter if you are afraid of fun, if you are too serious about life, or just don’t have the time for it. If you don’t have fun in your life, you are really missing the point. Living life without fun is like watching Avatar in black and white.

I am not talking about having fun with your kids, having fun working, or having fun cooking for your family. I am totally in love with my family life and with my work. I enjoy everything I do tremendously. But it does not make it fun.

Fun is by definition not related to your life’s responsibilities and obligations. Fun is defined as “enjoyment, amusement, or lighthearted pleasure.”

Fun can be meeting friends, having a glass of wine, going to a restaurant, eating ice cream, dancing, singing, reading, writing, hiking, traveling, learning something new, surfing, diving, baking, or watching TV.

Fun can be anything that is pleasant and enjoyable, as long as it does not have a hidden agenda. It cannot be something you do for personal growth.

You’ll be amazed to find how much personal growth there is in doing something just for fun. 

On this week, see how you can bring more fun into your life.

  • Make a list of the things that are fun for you.
  • Decide how much time to dedicate for fun on a daily or weekly basis.

On the full moon night, we are asked to bring balance between Gemini and Sagittarius:

  • Balance between the desire to be rooted and committed to the people in your life, vs the desire to free float around the world with no commitment to anyone.
  • Balance between the desire to acknowledge the hardship of the human condition vs the desire to see the good in everyone and everything.
  • Balance between the desire to have facts to back up your worldview vs the desire to trust your gut regardless of external information.

Where do you need to take steps towards the middle path of these two ends? 

Wishing you a fun week and a fun full moon!

With love,
