This last full moon of the year lands in the sign of Gemini arrives on December 18.
This December Full Moon is also named the Cold Moon, being the last full moon of the year during the darkest and coldest time of year in the Northern Hemisphere.
Gemini, being an air sign, is known to rule communication, effectiveness, social skills, and clearheaded thinking. As the Moon's shine is illuminating these areas of our lives, we will be offered clarity around these topics.
Full Moons represent culminations, conclusions, realizations and epiphanies. We are given an opportunity to reflect upon the things we want to leave behind us, as this year is soon to be wrapped up. What are some of the things you are ready to release and that are no longer serving you?
But when one door closes, another one opens. As well as being a symbolic time to release 2021, this Full Moon in Gemini also marks the beginning of a new cycle.
The full moon in Gemini will form an exact opposition with the Sagittarius sun, powerfully aligning with the planet of luck, Jupiter, in Aquarius. Jupiter signifies positive growth, abundance, luck and expansion. When this advantageous energy is activated in the sign Aquarius, it becomes a guiding light towards our dreams and desires that we have for our future. Ask yourself, what have you been working towards lately? What is is that you want to manifest during the two-week portal of the full moon in Gemini?
This full moon in Gemini is also happening the day before the transformative Venus Retrograde period in Capricorn. It's been eight years since the last time, which was back in 2013. Venus represents relationships, wealth, agreements, justice, and harmony, while Capricorn rules structure, authority, reality, and tradition. Collectively, this planetary energy over the final weeks of the year will encourage us to have important discussions surrounding the structure of finances, sort out important contracts, and dive deep into the meaning of significant relationships*.
