7/8 December 2022
The shift into Sagittarius season has been a welcome change. I embraced the New Moon energy by flying off on a week-long holiday where I slowed my pace down, basked in the sun, refreshed in the sea and explored. I stayed off social media and deleted all the shouty Black Friday and Cyber Monday emails which seemed to go on for days and days.
But now I’m back and staring down the Full Moon in Gemini. This is often quite a fun full moon—we get to enjoy the social Gemini vibes as we flit about from event to event in the lead-up to the holiday season. Yet this year the full moon is mixed up with Mars retrograde which creates a bit of stickiness.
If you watched my Mars retrograde webinar you would know that this period is a time when we need to pull back, be extra vigilant with our grounding practises and find ways to focus on a couple of core things rather than try and do them all. (If you missed it, you can get the recording here.)
With Mars retrograde conjunct the full moon we can find our emotions rise up, our thoughts turn to how we feel about where and how we use our energy. It can bring up all the feels about our relationships—past and current—and get us wondering if we are expressing ourselves in the way we want to (that is, if we are even sure of what we are feeling).
All full moons shine a light on our relationship with others and with ourselves. With this one we use Gemini to explore the duality in our nature—sifting through the information to help us shift and change. Then Sagittarius helps us aim our arrow to where we want to go, the new places we wish to explore with our minds, bodies, hearts and souls.
Gemini can be a little bit all over the place at times, but I like to always approach what this sign throws up with curiosity. What thought or feeling is coming up for you now? How can you hold space for it and lean into where it is taking you? Where do you feel it in your body? Does it feel good or uncomfortable and why? How would it feel to share this with someone? What are you learning? How can you communicate this?
A bonus is that Mercury, the ruler of Gemini, has just moved into Capricorn. This brings a bit more structure and grounding to proceedings, which is nice news if your brain has been all over the place of late. It also lends more of a long-term view of things—are you heading to the right destination for you?
If you’re uncertain about what all of this might be for you, book in for The Complete Package where we weave together astrology, holistic counselling tools and EFT to help you unpack your experience and get clear on where you want to go.
Get curious, grounded and use your feelings to direct your actions.
