Full Moon in Gemini December 2022

The Full Moon in Gemini occurs at 04:08 on December 8, 2022. The Moon will be at 16GEM01.

This is a firecracker of a lunation as the Moon will be directly conjunct retrograde Mars in Gemini. As the Sun and Mars also form an opposition on the same date, this lunation highlights the midpoint of the Mars retrograde cycle, bringing us to important realisations around how we communicate and connect with one another. Gemini themes are sharply in focus – how we think and assert our ideas, the flow of information, neighbours and neighbourhood, local transport systems and siblings. The Moon’s opposition to the Sun in Sagittarius suggests tension between theories (Sagittarius) and facts (Gemini). There may be clarification around what we know and what we think we know.

This is a stormy, emotionally reactive chart. It’s easy to feel triggered and there’s potential for snap judgements and impulsive decisions based on these reactive responses. Take a moment before you do or say something you may regret later down the line. The Sabian symbol of this lunation is The Head Of A Robust Youth Changes Into That Of A Mature Thinker – an expressive image which tells us that we need to keep our head and maintain a considered, mature approach during this time. A trine from the Full Moon to Saturn also advocates leaning into old wisdom and good friends. Knowing when we need support or advice is the first sign of maturity.
