We all know that two heads are better than one. With Gemini representing the twins within us, we might feel the urge to be in two places at once with the powerful energies at play during tonight's full moon.
To prepare ourselves for the big lunar show, we ought to be mindful to take in a deep breath to help keep our emotions in check. Then we can really get the party started. You heard it right — the cosmos is encouraging us to reap the benefits we have sowed of late and celebrate. Permission to party? Granted.
If you've been crazy-busy this fall, gathering your nuts like a frantic squirrel to store up for the long winter ahead, the time to make merry is officially upon us. Don't be afraid to let loose during this supercharged upbeat time and indulge — there's plenty of time to hibernate come the new year. Splurge. Jubilate. Rejoice. You get the idea.
Unlike last month's introspective full moon in Taurus, you can expect solar-powered social interactions — with the Sun in Sagittarius as it dances with Mercury the messenger. Now is the perfect time to get a group of friends together for that big outing, or have enlightened conversations with those closest to you. You'll be bombarded by innovative ideas and new perspectives, so do keep a pen handy.
But be wary — with the twins of Gemini in full force, remember to pay attention to your body. Since the centrality of our nervous system is mirrored perfectly on both sides, the Gemini moon could lead to enhanced feelings of anxiousness. There is an abundance of energy running rampant in the air. You'll also hear plenty of excessive chatter around you and inside of your busy head. But with this in mind, you can manage just fine — get yourself to a yoga class or try this sequence to help alleviate your anxiety. You can also try a quick one-minute meditation to help bring you a sense of calm. Your two lungs will certainly thank you when you remind yourself to breathe!
And since Gemini symbolizes the respective symmetry on the outside of the body as well, you might want to show off those sexy arms and shoulders tonight at that holiday party.
Here's a roundup of our favorite astrologers from around the web for more:
"The Gemini Full Moon on December 6 is a Party Moon. This Full Moon is a brief break from the intense growth and striving you have done … The Gemini Full Moon says that it is time to celebrate your life. Celebrate your victories. Even the smallest of accomplishments are worth noting. When you focus on what is working in your life, this creates a current of positive energy. You are a magnet for good things to flow to you ... "
"The Full Moon is in chatty Gemini — sign of the Twins — and these two twins tolerate boredom about as well as… well, they don't. Not at all.
If you're hosting a holiday soirée, the weekend of December 6 is a prime time to do it. The Moon is full in Gemini = Shoulders — so wear that sassy new off-the-shoulder top. And send any "weight" you've been carrying on your shoulders down the road. Wave bye-bye to those buggers and let the good times roll — in other words don't worry, be happy, and just let that shit go my friend, let it roll off your shoulders and be done with it."
"Gemini is quite comfortable in his or her immediate environment or neighborhood, while Sagittarius stimulates us to venture beyond. Neglecting either end of the axis will surely backfire on us. Ideally, a balance should be found between the two energies, and this is what the Full Moon invites us to do. This Full Moon is about communication, attitude, and our sense of adventure. Something has been building inside of us, and now is the time when the energy of the cosmos fairly demands that we let it out."
Full Moon in Gemini maximizes the qualities of fire and air. It's an enthusiastic time of increased activity and connection. We feel the urge toward expansion, looking at a bigger picture and finding our place in the mythic story of life with Jupiter in Leo ruling the Sun in Sagittarius.
When Gemini energy is at its fullest and the Moon peaks in this sign, our minds are titillated, and gathering information and making connections lights up all our circuit boards and that makes us feel alive!
