On December 18, we are going to be graced with a full moon in Gemini. Full moons provide us with unique opportunities, with each cycle being governed by a specific sign, and this one is going to shake up our love lives.
This full moon will be the last one we encounter this year. As you may know, full moons are the part of the moon cycle in which we can manifest our desires, or truly touch base with ourselves to grow. With this particular moon being in Gemini, which is represented by the twins, it’s easy to see how it could put us at odds with ourselves.
It is thought that the Gemini twins include one mortal twin and one immortal, and this energy likely has us in a battle between our physical desires and our spiritual ones.
In life, this battle can come up randomly within, but when the Gemini energy meets the full moon, there is no escaping its energy. Part of what makes a full moon such a wonderful tool for our growth is that it brings issues to the surface, so we can face them and truly touch base with ourselves. Be sure to take time to meditate and contemplate the energies surrounding this full moon.
Our body is both human and spirit- which provides us with a unique perspective. And with this being the last full moon of the year, it’s really necessary to take advantage of the moon’s energy and to touch base with ourselves.
Venus is also going retrograde with this full moon. We may be torn between our emotions and how to act on them, and feeling a little out of our element. But, when this energy comes into play with the full moon, it is going to be pushing us to explore our connections between ourselves and others. Additionally, this odd and random balance should help restore harmony to our relationships that are struggling.
According To Astrology King:
Full Moon Meaning
Sun opposite Moon brings your home, family, and intimate relationships into sharper focus for the following two weeks of this moon phase. Opposing forces such as work versus home, or what you need versus what you want, create inner tension and external pressures. This can lead to conflict and crises that drain your energy.
The lunar qualities of emotions and instincts reach their peak at a full moon. So use your increased emotional strength and intuition to overcome any relationship challenges. Subconscious awareness allows for an impartial and balanced look at your personal relationships. You will clearly see any relationship dynamics or negative feelings causing disharmony.
Jupiter for Good Fortune
Full Moon trine Jupiter brings optimism, good luck, prosperity and happiness. There will be opportunities for material and spiritual growth to make you healthier, richer and wiser. This is a good full moon for legal matters, investing, starting or growing a business, and public relations.
It will be easier to share your feelings with others. Relationships and socializing will benefit from greater openness and honesty. Mutual respect and understanding can lead to very successful intimate relationships and business partnerships.
Infectious goodwill and generosity make this a good full moon for joining groups, donating to charities, and promoting worthy causes. It is also good for seeking favors and attracting support. You can expand your horizons through higher education, long-distance travel and spirituality.
Venus for Love
Full Moon quincunx Venus increases your need for love and affection. However, relationship tension is possible, especially if there is an imbalance involving emotional support and love; the amount of love received is not the same as the amount given. Such relationship issues may be a recurring problem, with a continual build-up then release of tension. Even if you are single, you may still experience an internal imbalance involving self-love and how you feel about yourself.
Full moon quincunx Pluto can increase power and control imbalances in intimate relationships. Possessiveness, guilt-tripping, jealousy, secrets, or abuse could escalate matters to a tipping point. Such a relationship must evolve through counseling or power-sharing, or it must end. Intense emotions, fear and anxiety can also get out of control and lead to destructive and uncontrolled behavior. Sharing your feeling with a friend, counseling or spiritual practices will help avoid a crisis.
Venus conjunct Pluto dramatically increases your need for love and affection. You want to experience companionship at a deeper, more intense level. Magnetic attraction pulls people together at the subconscious level. Instant attraction or infatuation could lead to a new romance. But increased powers of attraction can lead to the misuse of power. Manipulation or abuse could lead to a relationship crisis. Compulsive spending and financial scams must be avoided.
Venus retrograde is generally a fated and sometimes challenging time in your love life. Difficulty giving and receiving love and affection can lead to relationship problems. Or a destiny encounter could lead to a new karmic relationship. The conjunction with Pluto brings the risk of a relationship crisis or a financial crisis. The key to growth and good fortune with love and money is to use your power wisely.
