December 7th, 11:07 PM ET, we have a Full Moon in Gemini. *Depending on your location, it will occur on 12/8.
A Full Moon happens when the Sun is opposite the Moon.
This highlights the polarities (opposing forces) in our lives.
These polarities are of an emotional, physical and spiritual nature. It can be one area or all three, and each Full Moon will feel different based on the sign and planetary aspects surrounding the Moon.
Awareness and emotion reach their peak and are heightened around Full Moons. This is why we feel more edgy and anxious around these times, sometimes not even being able to sleep.
The Moon rules our subconscious, the raw emotions that lurk underneath the surface.
Everything comes to a head under this energy. There is a tug of war between head and heart.
The Sun is in the sign of Sagittarius (Fire) while the Moon sits opposite the sky in the sign of Gemini (Air).
Both Sagittarius and Gemini are mutable energies, meaning that they are adaptable, flexible and sometimes, scattered.
The planet Mars has been retrograde since 10/30, really ramping up the energy. Speeding us up and slowing us down, simultaneously.
Hot under the collar energetically, we all are under these energies.
Mars is very active around this Full Moon, as it sits exactly aligned with the Moon, and opposite the Sun.

Inflammation is a key word for Mars. Full Moons pull focus to what has been beneath the surface. Something is illuminated.
If you are feeling anxious, overwhelmed, out of sorts this past week? This is likely a contributor.
We may feel short-tempered, easily irritated, perhaps even irrational. We may not be sleeping well, feeling mentally stressed and emotionally burnt out.
Yes, that is this Full Moon.
Positively speaking, allow this energy to highlight what it needs to for you. Allow it all to surface, process it.
Take some moments to observe it all, but try not to absorb it.
Full Moons are all about release, so reflect upon what you would like to let go of, to make space for you would like to attract into your life.
Most important to remember: do not react. Take a breath, and respond when you feel ready.
We are all experiencing this intensity, so a little extra mindfulness will go a long way.
Happy Full Moon, allow the energy of Mars to fuel you towards your goals.
Allow the energy of Gemini and Sagittarius keep you seeking, learning, growing.
