So so sorry for the incomplete email that was sent to you guys following the Blog earlier! Unfortunately, my computer, tech stuff and email have not been agreeing with me during the Mercury Retrograde (since the pre-shadow started!).
The last Full Moon of 2017 is here and what better way to close the year out than with a SUPER Moon in Gemini.
Full Moons are always a time to harvest as well as review your intentions and what you’ve been working on this year, or since the last New Moon. The energy is potent at this time, there is a lot of emotional intensity and charge around everyone. This lunar phase in particular also helps us tie up loose ends, close circles, release things that are no longer necessary in your life and let go of emotions that aren’t in alignment with what you want to manifest. It’s a time to observe what has worked and what hasn’t in order to have clarity on what inspired action to take next.
This event on December 3rd is actually a Super Moon, the Supermoon on November 14, 2016, was the closest since January 26, 1948. The next time a Full Moon will come even closer to Earth is on November 25, 2034. Still many Super Moons will grace us with their presence until then. When a Full or New Moon is closer in distance to the Earth because of orbits and seems larger and brighter than average, it’s considered a Super Moon.
Energetically, Full Moons affect people in different ways and areas. With a Super Moon, you can expect these emotions, feelings or reactions to be amplified. For example, if you normally notice that you feel emotions very intensely, then that may be stronger this time around, or if you are more sensitive to others around you, the Super Moon energy might increase that. However, with the presence of the Mercury Retrograde, it will somewhat balance it out and minimize the intensity and affect HOW we react to it.
This Full Moon falls in Gemini. There are other positions and transits that will also be affecting the energies surrounding this lunar phase, and I would totally recommend reading Astrology King’s article here for more specifc details and energies on these transits.
There may be a lot of duality within your process for this Gemini Full Moon. You’re being confronted with truth; what truth is to you, what it is to others, things that you may have found to be a part of that truth but are now questioning. So much light also means that much light will be shining on your shadow and illuminating what’s been hidden. I feel as though the transits and events in the past couple of months have been preparing everyone, including yourself, for this particular moment. With the Solar and Lunar Eclipse in August, Leo and recently, Scorpio Season, there has been a clear shuffling and unearthing of buried or hidden things. I do however, feel as if it’s a part of a cosmic shift in a collective and individual consciousness, that’s allowing the end of the year to be potent and expansive. Not all growth is flowers and unicorns, some of it is HARD and uncomfortable. The same can be said for being confronted with your truth.
Dealing with this makes you go through so many different stages and emotions. What if what you thought was your irrevocable truth, suddenly crumbled and you’re faced with the possibility that it isn’t? that can be scary and off-putting. Perhaps you noticed that you needed to make some drastic changes in your life because the way you were living was not resonating with your true self. This brings even more emotions into the picture… How can I go on from here? How can I start again? Will I lose even what I do want in my life? and so on. It’s ok to ask questions, question yourself and your beliefs and observe your behaviour, but it’s also good not to get stuck in that place, where your energy can become stagnant and your vibration can lower.
Relationships have been taking hits too. Maybe you were looking for something in a partner, only to find that maybe what you NEEDED resonated with something else. I’ve seen a lot of people losing themselves in the past couple of months, but I myself, find something beautiful in that. If you think you’ve got it all figured out and know everything, you leave no room for growth or exploration. Losing yourself sometimes also means that you get to BUILD and CREATE your own life and regenerate yourself however you feel best. That is empowering.
This Full Moon will bring a lot of questioning. Between what’s real and what’s illusion. between what you want and what you’re currently manifesting, between what your mind is telling you and what your soul is yearning for. Once again, with the influence of the Retrograde, the answers will NOT be so clear and simple, but you can observe and take note, see how you feel about things once Mercury goes Direct. It’s important with this double whammy of energy, to remain tempered. I mean that, mind your temper and mind your patience, for it WILL be tested and you won’t want to end up feeling guilty or responsible for hurting or damaging others. Don’t jump to any conclusions about ANYTHING right now until you get a better feel and view of things, remember that things aren’t always what they seem. Try, as much as you can, to react from a place of love and understanding, patience is key here too. Whenever you feel like it’s a little too much: Stop, breathe and use both your intuition and your objective self to react.
The Universe iss trying to get you to be honest with yourself and basically cut the BS. You’re saying you want one thing but your actions imply something else, the Universe WILL call you out and make you see that. Maybe you rationally think you’re in a circumstance for x reason, when deep down you know better. Maybe some things are coming up that you didn’t even have a clue they existed and feel perplexed, let them flow out and feel what the best way for you to deal with them is. All of these feelings and emotions are coming up to be healed or transmuted into something greater. Don’t try to block these emotions out and shut them down, as this will create more anxiety or it will turn you into a ticking time-bomb, because eventually, it does come out. You might as well find a way to let it come out in a somewhat controlled and managable way.
There has been a definite transformation going on this year. 2017 for sure brought new beginnings and a lot of change. The transits for the next couple of weeks will serve as that final nudge from the Universe to get your behind moving towards where you SHOULD be in your life. This isn’t always peachy, sometimes there are changes you might be reluctant to or afraid of, but in the end, they too will bear fruit and you’ll end up enjoying the outcome, even if it doesn’t seem like it now.
All that being said, this Gemini Super Moon is not all gloom and grey, there is a sociable element to this combination and you could enjoy other people’s company very much. And if you stay tempered, try not to judge, punish or blame, you will end up feeling so light and ready to take on 2018.
What have you created for yourself this year? What would you like to not drag into 2018? What truths are being shown to you, that you must face? Are you ready to let this transformation turn you into a better you? How can you align yourself more with what resonates with your soul?
