The Last Full Moon of the Year Wants Us to Question Everything!

There’s one final energetic push to release all that no longer serves us before 2022! On December 18th, we will celebrate the last full moon of the year in the mutable air sign, Gemini. With this Full Moon phase, we can feel as if an electric current is working its way through our system! Themes around connection, how we communicate, and our belief systems will be coming into question. This can feel like a mental overload, but this full moon wants us to truly challenge what we believe in. Do we actually practice what we preach? And where do our belief systems actually come from?

Gemini likes to play the devil’s advocate! It’s a naturally curious energy that loves to learn and explore why we act and think the way that we do. Geminis are also known to be experimental, creative, constantly thinking outside of the box. This full moon, take a step back in order to see an old situation in a new light. Sometimes a simple perspective shift is what’s needed in order to come to a solution. Being open to different opinions, collaboration, and new ideas can help you get to the solution quicker than you would have expected.

With a Gemini full moon, it’s ok to question the familiar! Where do your beliefs come from? Maybe they were passed down to you from your family, or you were conditioned by your friends and environments. It’s ok to release old ideals that don’t suit who you are currently. Gemini energy understands that there’s power in being able to change your mind. This Gemini Full Moon can help you move further into true alignment as we move into the new year!

Here are some ways to redefine your beliefs using the Gemini Full Moon:

  • Make a list of thoughts you feel challenged by! Could be differing opinions or beliefs you are ready to let go of. Next to each of those ideologies, write down a positive of that perspective. The more you begin to see that there’s two truths, the more open you can make your mind to new thought patterns.
  • Make sure to journal during the Gemini Full Moon! This sign is very connected to communication and words. Free writing is a beautiful way to organize your thoughts and clear your headspace! Share your writing with those who inspire you. You can build community around your words and ideas! The more you share, the more you will see your community reflect the beauty within you. 
  • Meditate using incense! Gemini is an air sign, connected to all elements of smoke, breath, and air. Set up a sacred, quiet space for yourself and light an incense stick. Taking deep breaths, watch the smoke from the incense and focus on clearing your mind! Take note of any visuals or messages you may have received during the practice.
