Here we are well into December. Certainly, times are-a interesting, aren’t they?
Collectively we are dealing with so much. We are absolutely exhausted from attempting to hold it all together, our energies are all over the place. Up, down, wired, tired, start, stop- you get the gist.
Factor in the planetary mash-up? Yes, as above so below and we are feeling it!
One word to keep sight of: HOPE…ok, let’s add another one…FAITH. Let this be the energy we carry in our hearts as we shift into 2022!
December 18 11:36 PM EST- we have our final Full Moon of 2021.
While this Full Moon is not an Eclipse, the energies of the Eclipses are still very much upon us. We are still working with the Gemini/Sagittarius axis. The nodes of fate are doing their final cha-cha around these signs of truth, the signs of understanding.
What has been and/or perhaps, still is being revealed for and to you? What has shifted over the last eighteen months? What do you understand more clearly about yourself, your own journey?
Be sure to check where Gemini/Sagittarius falls in your own chart. This will give you a better picture of which areas of life (houses in your chart) were lit up by the previous Gemini/Sag Eclipses. You can find instructions on how to pull up your birth chart here.
A Full Moon occurs when the Sun is opposite the Moon in the sky.
The Sun is in the sign of mutable fire- freedom loving and truth seeking Sagittarius.
The Moon is in the opposite sign of mutable air- communicative, intelligent & expressive Gemini.
Sagittarius and Gemini both admire and desire freedom. Freedom of mind, freedom of expression, and freedom at heart. This is not always easy to achieve, but we most certainly can strive for it.
Full Moons are the final point of the lunar cycle. Everything culminates and is brought up to the surface.
Emotions are heightened, intuition and awareness are increased. We feel more anxious and wired, sleep disturbances are also a part of this for some.
Gemini is an air sign with much mental activity. Represented by the twins, this sign is known for its dual nature and flexibility. Gemini can be immersed in many things at once, and so we can feel a bit all over the place with this Full Moon!
Mercury is the ruling planet of Gemini and this Full Moon, and also rules over our nervous & circulatory system. If you are feeling more jumpy and more wired than normal, this is likely contributing to it. Conscious breath work, meditation and physical exercise should help.
Those with mutable planets (Gemini especially, Sagittarius, Virgo, Pisces) will feel this energy the strongest. If your planets are in any of these signs and/or fall between 24-29°, even stronger.
Positively, this Full Moon is tightly linked to Jupiter by a supportive trine. Faith, hope, expansion and optimism are what Jupiter gifts us.
Pay close attention to your emotions and your thought processes around this time. Note patterns, habits, behaviors that you would like to work toward releasing.
Use this final Full Moon of 2021 to truly reflect, to work toward releasing that which no longer serves your soul. Use the expansive energy of Jupiter to reflect upon what you wish to attract moving forward, where you would like to, or may need some assistance with, restoring your faith.
12/21 on the heels of this Full Moon, an important celestial and spiritual turning point is upon us: The Winter Solstice.
More on that and the entrance of Capricorn season, later this week.
