Full Moon in Gemini: Marking the End of an Era

Hello Moonbeams!

Embrace the power of the twins, sweeties, it’s Gemini time!

Decisions, sensations, feelings, our voice…all are just more intense during a full

moon. The full moon on December 12th illuminates the truth, especially in communications, motives and intentions. And, Gemini, astrology’s gossip sign, is all about being seen and heard.

As the wheel completes its transit with the final full moon of the year, it is the

perfect time to ask yourself, “What is working? What is not working?” To truly look

at all the different parts of your life to see what is no longer serving you and what

is not acting for your highest good. The Gemini moon will be right there to help

you let go of what is holding you back as you come to a better understanding of

yourself as well as your needs. Use this moon to find your way. Remind yourself

that you are not alone in the midst of chaos.

There is no right, wrong or perfect way to celebrate the moon. For some it is as

simple as putting a crystal on a windowsill under a full moon to cleanse and charge

the stone. For others it is a more elaborate dance.
