We have reached the last full moon of 2022. Falling in the sign of Gemini the Twins on December 7-8, this Full Moon carries some warm, charged energy. Although it is not as intense as the Blood Moon Eclipse we had in November, it may act as a trigger, re-energizing or re-awakening the tender spots that were burned at the time.
Gemini represents the twins, where one twin is mortal and the other is immortal. Twins represent both sides of our being. We are both human and spirit. There is a part of us that will die and a part of us that will live forever. This union of our human selves and spiritual selves is what the Gemini Full Moon calls us to balance.
Under the full moon, we need to respect ourselves and be patient with our human side. We are only human. It’s okay that we have feelings, that we make mistakes, and that we don’t always know the way.
Just like that, we also have to work for the honor and respect of our soul. Our soul knows that there are no wrong turns, no regrets, and no mistakes. The direction of our soul knows that everything is a learning journey and that love is all there really is.
Both our human and spirit sides do not always work in tandem, and it can be difficult for them to understand each other’s perspectives. We humans need necessities such as food and shelter. Our soul needs to follow what brings joy. Our human self wants stability and healing. Our soul itself knows that everything is temporary and that we are already healed. Finding a balance between these two knowledges can be difficult at times, but this Full Moon is our opportunity.
No matter what’s coming up for you under this full moon, see if you can honor your human and soul side. See if you can connect with each of these parts of yourself like you are connecting with an old friend. Listen to what they have to say, treat them with respect, and balance will naturally follow.
As mentioned, this Full Moon has some warm and charged energy around it, mostly thanks to the presence of Mars, which is conjunct the Moon. Mars is also currently traveling retrograde, which increases its energy.
Mars is the planet of inspiration, action, and energy. During retrospect, we may feel compelled to question our motivations and actions and to reflect on where we are choosing to spend our energy.
Our energy is a precious resource, so this full moon may also highlight what is worth spending our energy on and what needs to be let go.
If you’ve been wasting your energy on certain thought patterns, relationships, behaviors and beliefs, this full moon is a good time to state them out loud and release them to the wind.
The presence of Mars may make us feel warm or charged about something. It can be difficult to keep our emotions in balance, but sometimes it’s perfectly acceptable to be angry, push yourself, and allow hot feelings to be released.
Sometimes we need to get things out and off our chest, and while there are conscious ways we can go about it, sometimes life circumstances can get the better of us.
This is fine. It is what makes us human. We don’t have to be love and light all the time. It is, in fact, more natural to us than how we feel, even if we suspect that it is coming from a place of ego. Sometimes we have to allow ourselves to just be human.
Most of us suffer from shame and express our anger. No one wants to be angry, no one wants to be on the receiving end of it, and while anger can sometimes be toxic, it’s also a healthy and valid human emotion. Sometimes our anger just needs to get rid of it. After that, we can easily reorganize it and understand where to go next.
The fiery and warm energy surrounding this full moon can force us to say something we regret or express our feelings in a way that we feel a little ashamed of later. But, be gentle with yourself. Don’t be too proud to apologize if you need to, but don’t go back on what you said if that’s really how you feel.
Have the courage to respect your boundaries, who you are, and what you stand for. The more we express our anger and hot feelings, the better we get at doing it in a conscious and healthy way. It takes practice, so we must try.
Neptune is another planet active in the sky during this full moon. Neptune is the planet of intuition, so we may find ourselves confirming something we’ve had an intuitive thought about for a while.
Trust your instincts under this full moon, and if you need to, the universe will send signs of confirmation your way.
Overall, the December 2022 Full Moon astrology shows us that it’s okay to feel, experience, and test the boundaries we’ve created for ourselves.
We must continue to push, adapt, and challenge ourselves to continue our mission. Our human mission is to be as alive and healthy as possible and to feel safe and stable. Our soul mission is to experience all the emotions of the rainbow: love, loss, adoption, growth, and change.
Life is a tug of war between the two, but this Full Moon offers a bridge, helping us find our balance and nurture both sides of our experience here at Earth School.
