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.
