This is the second last full moon is what has been an intense year to say the least. We are almost at the final act; and this full moon will help us to become clear regarding how we can make the most of the way we think, communicate and our perception of the world around us.

The full moon is a time of illumination. She shines a light on parts of us that are hidden or safely tucked away. This is why we can feel uncomfortable as la bella luna continues to expand in the sky. As she grows bigger, so too can anything that we’ve been holding onto.

This phase of the moon is also one of cultivation. Where we able to celebrate intentions and plans that have come to fruition and make a conscious decision to let go of those that haven’t. The full moon will show us that we will get out exactly what we have put in-so how this time looks will be completely up to you and decisions you have made in the past.

This can be a time of emotional tension, yet also a time where our intuitive senses are helping us to understand the best road for us to take as we move forward from here.

Jupiter (the ruler of Sagittarius) is forming an opposition to the full moon. Jupiter expands on anything it comes into contact with, so you may feel that your emotions are overwhelming you right now. Things seem bigger than they actually are, and you may be tempted to make rash decisions based on feelings. I want to caution you against making any kind of long-term decision until the moon moves out of her full moon phase and away from Jupiter-which will only be a couple of days after the abovementioned dates. Jupiter wants to bring positivity, optimism and meaning into our lives, yet first we must be able to release the fears and doubts that are holding us back.

Gemini turns our attention towards facts and figures, the logical mind, writing, speaking and connecting through forming social bonds. The expansive nature of this moon indicates that those we come into contact with-even for just a moment-may have information that supports us on our truth- seeking journey and could take us in a different direction altogether.

To get the most out of this moon it is important that we truly listen to what others are saying and open ourselves up to hear and understand different opinions. We are also being encouraged to look at how we think and communicate creates our world. How are we speaking to others? And how are we speaking to ourselves. Inner dialogue plays a huge part in how we perceive ourselves and the quality of life we experience. So check in with yourself over this period to see how you are communicating on an inner level.

It is a great time to be mindful of superficiality, white lies, inconsistency, constantly changing your mind, restlessness and depleting the nervous system by burning the candle at both ends.

Try not to get involved in gossip and drama (no matter how juicy it may be) and work toward expanding your mind and emotions with things that actually mean something to you.

Mercury (the ruler of Gemini) is currently in retrograde phase. This indicates that communication as we know it may be frustrated, chaotic or not clear in some way.

You may not have the logical words to express what you’re feeling yet may be able to convey your message through art, song or a symbolic way.

I find that one of the best ways I can connect with my inner self to really discover how I feel is through journaling. Journaling not only helps one to gain clarity around why they’re feeling a certain way, it also acts as a brain dump of sorts. It clears the mind of junk and helps it to be reprogrammed so that thoughts are supportive-not detrimental.

It can also act as a problem-solving tool.

We are in a period of cleansing and purification thanks to the movement of other celestial bodies and the upcoming full moon.

Things may come to a peak in the realm of siblings, neighbours and education, yet you may also receive exciting news!

As I mentioned earlier; how this moon unfolds in your life will greatly depend upon your own chart and what you’ve been doing up until this point.

I can guarantee you one thing though-with Gemini in the mix, there will never be a dull moment!!

Affirmation: My words and thoughts are powerful. They create my world and my experience of it. I mindfully choose what I think and say.

Full Moon Blessings.
