Full Moon in Gemini December 2021

The Full Moon occurs at 04:35 (UT) on December 19, 2021 at 27°Ge28′.

This is a powerful lunation that evokes important conversations. But everything is shifting and it’s hard to tell fact from fiction, truth from lies. The ground heaves underneath us, the scenery changes, another day, another drama, a new script, a new story. The Saturn-Uranus square is activated, playing out in our societies as the conversation around rules and freedom goes on and on, endless splitting hairs, detours, wandering around the point, mental overwhelm, just too much information. The Moon-Sun opposition squares Neptune in Pisces, pointing us towards the need for unity, peace, compassion, quiet, soul sustenance, transcendence. But with Mercury, the ruler of this lunation squaring stationary (direct) Chiron, we may feel concerned for our future, afraid to open the dialogue, scared of trying to think of ‘what next? Chiron is stationing on the Sabian symbol ‘A Crystal Gazer’, emphasising a need to build a bridge between here and there yet there is also fear that the future will only trigger more suffering. Time to rise above. Time to have courage. Time to be brave. Time to walk the talk, open the mind to a higher perspective. The Gods are calling, pick up.

The Sabian symbol of the Full Moon is Through Bankruptcy, Society Gives To An Overburdened Individual The Opportunity To Begin Again. It tells us that it’s time to put down the burden, time to release what no longer works, time to address where we have overspent, over-invested in commodities, relationships, projects, jobs that essentially don’t matter in the grand scheme of things. The Moon’s trines to Jupiter and Hygeia promise the potential for cleansing, healing, and an opportunity to change our luck, to change the future, heal our relationships, heal ourselves. But we must be willing to let go, be present, stop living on the never-never.

Right now, we are in a powerful karmic period both personally and collectively as a Draconic Bowl pattern is at work. It pushes us into a confined space in which we gestate, rest, receive otherworldly wisdom. Here we are contained and held in the vessel – the belly of the Goddess, rounded and burgeoning with life. Lessons filter down from the cosmos as we wait for rebirth.

Venus stationing retrograde in Capricorn just a few short hours after the Full Moon tells us that we need to clear our minds as we’re moving into a period of deep reassessment and regeneration. It’s time to strip away what isn’t essential to reveal the truth of our hearts and find the gold deep within. And yes, out there in the mundane world, there may be intense pressures on the system as Omicron hits and Venus retreats under the watchful eye of powerful Pluto. The economy may well be about to take a massive hit. The politicians are talking about a tidal wave (of Omicron) coming and in just eleven days (as I write), giant Jupiter will enter oceanic Pisces on December 29 – a big wave indeed – but with benefits to come as it is Jupiter after all. For now, at this Full Moon, it’s time to be still and present so that we can access the great hive mind. When we rest in a place of truth and trust, heart-warmed and curious, all the missing answers come flying in, holy poetry, carried on the backs of swans.

I recorded a 46mins astro-tarot reading where I discussed this chart and aspects in depth and included discussion about the Sun’s conjunction to the Galactic Centre and asteroid Lachesis.
