All Full Moons are about the expression of emotion, and the completion of emotional cycles. With the Full Moon in Gemini on December 18th, 2021, there’s a sense that it’s time for a change.
Astrology tells us that Gemini energy is lively and spontaneous, so this Moon tends to bring a desire for change on a whim, without a lot of planning. That can be a good thing, since often our first thought is our best thought – but for zodiac signs that struggle with impulse control, it can also be an excuse to make some pretty zany decisions.
Fortunately, Gemini energy is also logical and coolheaded. What advance consideration we do give our plans under this Lunar light will be rational and detached, which means that impulsive decisions won’t be driven by emotion. To avoid making impulsive mistakes, we can try to embody another part of Gemini’s essence – duality.
There are two sides to every story, and as Gemini knows, always at least two options within every choice. By thinking twice and asking the right questions about our own motives, we can harness the spontaneity of the Gemini Full Moon without risking adverse side effects.
Under this Lunar influence, you can expect a busy and sociable few days, perhaps even a hectic period of comings and goings.
Words will be important – Gemini is such a communicative astrology sign after all – so try to be precise with what you say and how you say it.
This is one of the least emotionally intense of all Full Moons, but even so it’s a good time to share your feelings with someone you trust.
Full Moons also provide an opportunity for us to deal with challenges from our shadow selves. The shadow side of Gemini’s energy involves immaturity and a certain flightiness or fickleness. If something pushes your buttons now, consider how much of it you might have brought upon yourself by acting a little childishly or by being insincere in your actions. Once you recognize the shadow elements which have brought you to this point, you can plan to move ahead, blessed by Gemini’s reason and logic.
Each astrology sign will experience the Gemini Full Moon in a slightly different way, but all signs will be seeking more spontaneity or change in some area of their life.
Full Moon in Gemini for an Aries (Aries dates: March 20 – April 19)
A clear head is this Full Moon’s greatest gift to you, Aries. Always impulsive, you can now move ahead, blending your head and your instincts successfully. Use these energies to revitalize the way you lead others. If you can be clear about what you’re suggesting and why, you’ll find that others rally round you; your persuasion skills are off the charts right now.
Full Moon in Gemini for a Taurus (Taurus dates: April 20 – May 20)
This Moon encourages change in the way you view your finances and resources, Taurus. Remember that you have far more going for you than your bank balance. Think about your skill set and about how you could make better use of it as you move forward. There’s an under-used talent which could easily create extra income for you, as well as providing a lot of personal satisfaction and enjoyment.
Full Moon in Gemini for a Gemini (Gemini dates: May 21 – June 20)
The Full Moon in your own sign is a mini revolution for you, Gemini. It’s time to stop being what you think other people want you to be, and instead to step into your own truth. Let out your inner playful side and lead the way with laughter and wit. Assert your own identity and refuse to be put into a box for the convenience of others. Start to tread your own path with conviction and confidence.
Full Moon in Gemini for a Cancer (Cancer dates: June 21 – July 21)
You probably have more questions than answers during this Moon, Cancer, since it activates your spiritual zone and your curiosity about life, spirit and human potential. This is a good time for questioning faith or religion, and for having the confidence to explore new areas of belief that appeal to you. Try meditation or divination and see how it makes you feel. You can objectively weigh up what feels right, which is a major plus.
Full Moon in Gemini for a Leo (Leo dates: July 22 – August 22)
Too much work and not enough play? You can expect to reach a crisis point now if you’ve spent too long focused on work or your career and not long enough reaching out to the rest of humanity. Issues of friendship and connection are high on the agenda, and you may feel an urge to change your social circle. Run with it – there are plenty of kindred souls out there waiting to make your acquaintance.
Full Moon in Gemini for a Virgo (Virgo dates: August 23 – September 22)
This Full Moon activates your career zone, Virgo, so don’t be surprised if you feel itchy feet and restless at work. Try to avoid making sudden decisions; but what you can do is to begin researching an alternative path that may suit you better. Separate the emotions you feel about your work from the practical necessities of how much you need to earn and how. Make logical choices about where you’re heading.
Full Moon in Gemini for a Libra (Libra dates: September 23 – October 22)
Before the influence of this Full Moon is over, you can expect to have changed your mind half a dozen times at least, Libra! The Lunar energies encourage you to see all sides of every possible story, but that just plays into your indecisive nature. Play for time if you can, rather than making a final choice. And don’t be too hard on yourself about putting this off. Your desire to question everything is healthy and positive.
Full Moon in Gemini for a Scorpio (Scorpio dates: October 23 – November 21)
Difficult issues in intimacy or complex relationships can be clarified under the clear-headed influence of this Moon. This is a good time to put emotion aside, Scorpio, and to look at any relationship problems more objectively. What do you want from someone, and what are you prepared to offer in return? Your tangled web of feelings looks less depressing when viewed under the light of the Full Moon.
Full Moon in Gemini for a Sagittarius (Sagittarius dates: November 22 – December 20)
This Moon activates your relationship zone, Sagittarius, and it’s an excellent time to bring more spontaneity and fun into your love life. There’s an undercurrent of devilishness here, so this could be a lot of fun! Good humor and affection are in abundance, but you may find it hard to focus on responsibilities and the serious business of love during this period. Instead, it’s all about what makes you smile.
Full Moon in Gemini for a Capricorn (Capricorn dates: December 21 – January 19)
The ability to multi-task is your gift from this Full Moon, Capricorn. At work and at home, you’re able to use this clarity of mind to get a lot done; all at once and typically before breakfast. You’ll probably feel a great sense of progress during this period, but it’s important to take care of your mental health. Don’t stress yourself out trying to achieve the impossible.
Full Moon in Gemini for an Aquarius (Aquarius dates: January 20 – February 17)
Creatively, the Full Moon in your fellow Air sign, Gemini, is a joy for you, Aquarius. You’ll be able to express pent-up emotions through writing, art or music now, and that will be a huge relief to you. It’s a busy period in your love life too, and it’s a nice time to take a fledgling relationship up a gear. If you’re single, look for someone who makes you think.
Full Moon in Gemini for a Pisces (Pisces dates: February 18 – March 19)
The Full Moon in your family zone brings clarity around a controversy or a hotly debated family problem. Where you’ve previously been consumed by the emotion of it all, this energy allows you to objectively move everyone forwards. As a parent or a caregiver, try to avoid being in too much of a hurry, however. Some things take time, and that’s as it should be. Learn to embrace the time you spend with your family as a gift, not a chore.
