I love the rhythmic nature of the astrology cycles. The cosmos invites us to evolve, and the lunar nodes are teachers. They travel backward through the zodiac for 18 months. Since May 2020, the Gemini/ Sagittarius axis of information has been in the limelight. The collective work of integrating new ideas leading into the release of entrenched thinking ends soon. On Saturday, December 18, 8:35 pm PT, the final 2021 Full Moon debuts. It is the last one in the Mercury-ruled air sign of Gemini before the North Node moves into Venus-ruled Taurus to spotlight our resources and values. Are there nagging self-limiting stories that you want to release? Well, Venus in Capricorn will assist! She stations for her retrograde on the day of this lunation.
From December 19 until January 29, she will dance backward in heels. Venusian topics for review, reassessment, and revision include our money, values, and relationships. This tango promises intensity as her partner is obsessive Pluto. The Lord of the Underworld despises surface niceties. It plunges the depths of the psychological underworld to seduce, purge, transform and sometimes destroy. The beauty and the beast embraced on December 11, their fling resumes on Christmas Day, and the finale is March 3. Relationships will have intensity. Be prepared for passion, unearthed secrets, and the opportunity for deep intimacy.
The final 2021 clash of authoritarian Saturn and the Great Awakener Uranus on Christmas Eve could bring some surprises. Learn more about this lunation in the video here.
I suggest taking time out for a Full Moon ritual. Prompts for journaling, oracle cards, or contemplation:
💬 Think back to the start of this lunar gestational family; the Solar Eclipse from June 2020. What have you learned about your communication & decision-making skills?
📿How can you calm your mind to release mental clutter?
📅Are you over-scheduled? Reassess which commitments add value.
