December 19th the Moon in airy, chatty Gemini oppose the sun in fiery, playful Sagittarius and we have the last full moon of the year.
With a full moon in Gemini – ruled by the expressive messenger, Mercury – the Universe demands clear communication, so don’t be afraid let things out and express yourself and your truths openly. Gemini gives us the power to express ourselves eloquently, and the full moon in Gemini is the perfect backdrop for you to share your honest thoughts with the world. And even though it can be challenging at times, expressing your heartfelt truth will leave you feeling a lot more grounded and at peace than trying to keep up with those little white lies told to protect yourself. The truth may make you feel vulnerable, but if you can stay true to yourself and communicate your heart, you will soon notice how telling the heartfelt truth makes your soul expand ♡.
December’s full moon is often referred to as the Long Nights Moon, due to the long, dark nights at this time of the year, and even though we are in the midst of the Holliday season, see if you can find some space in your schedule for stillness and reflection. Light some incense (Frankincense is my fave!), take deep, rooted, breaths, meditate, do yoga, and pay some extra attention to your inner world.
Both 2020 and 2021 has been a different, weird, and challenging years for most of us. Change is hard, and I think we all agree that all the changes of the past two years has felt very overwhelming at times. On a more positive note it has helped us all to step out of our busy bubble and forced us to practice sitting with what is. It has given us the opportunity to slow down, just breathe and just be.
Whatever has happened these past 20 months or so, big or small, congratulate yourself! 2021 may not have lived up to its expectations (I think we all hoped that covid would be so long goodbye by now), but trust that it brought you what you needed. Have faith in the bigger picture, and trust that you always get the lessons and opportunities you need for you to learn, grow and become the best version of you ♡. Fingers crossed it will only get better from here!
As we are soon to wrap up 2021, this is a great time to reflect and prepare for the upcoming shift. A new year always brings with it the opportunity to upgrade, so take this opportunity to weed out whatever is not sustainable in your life. Bring out your journal and ask yourself where you are holding on too tightly, and where you need to surrender and let go. Write down whatever you are ready to release on a piece of paper, then give it to the fire and release whatever you don’t want to bring with you into 2022.
Most of all, remember that your life is a sacred journey, and that all we can do is to live the best we can with the opportunities we get. Whatever arises for you as we are closing the chapter of 2021, remember that things always arise for you to heal. And you need to feel it to heal it as they say ♡
Then open up your heart for a new chapter to begin, and trust that you alone hold the keys to your own happiness.
Happy Full Moon lovelies!
