The end of the year is quickly approaching. And while your mind may be on what to buy your SO, what to wear to your upcoming holiday party, or all of the last-minute shopping you have to do, this is also a time to reflect on 2022 and set your intentions for the upcoming year. But I’m not the only one telling you to face the music before the year wraps up — the stars also have a message for you. And it’s coming on Dec. 7.
Before you freak out, Mercury isn’t retrograding until the end of the month. On Dec. 7, the sky will hold its final full moon of 2022 in the sign of Gemini. While powerful astrological transits like this are known for disruption and chaos, the full moon in Gemini is actually a great way to wrap up the year. That is, if you love drama. Oops.
Ready for 2022 to go out with a bang? From what it is to what it means for you, here’s everything you need to know about the full moon in Gemini.
What does the full moon in Gemini mean?
Before we dive into the transit, it’s important to understand what it actually means. In astrology, full moons represent transformation and reflection. Think of yourself as a spiritual werewolf — once you’re under a full moon, your inner self will be more vulnerable than ever. And, with that, you’ll have the power to evolve into a better, stronger version of yourself.
With this full moon taking place in the sign of Gemini, which is ruled by Mercury, this transit is symbolic of communication. What this means is that any underlying feelings that you may have, especially the ones you’ve been having trouble expressing, might boil to the surface and spill out. While this may cause a bit of drama and tension, you may find that it was necessary in order to continue growing, especially with 2023 around the corner.
When is the Gemini full moon?
The full moon in Gemini will hit its peak on Dec. 7 at 11:08 p.m. EST. So, if you’re awake, consider planning out your manifestations, affirmations, and intentions. The power of the full moon will kick those babies into overdrive.
What is my Gemini full moon horoscope?
While the moon is in Gemini, this transit will impact every zodiac sign in differing areas of their lives. Believe me what I tell you, nobody is spared. Here’s your (drama-filled) horoscope for the Gemini full moon:
ARIES (MARCH 20-APRIL 19):
The impulsive and firey Aries may find themselves feeling a little bit more vulnerable than usual. With the full moon falling in their third house of communication, Aries may find themselves in emotionally charged conversations that will pull out all of those hidden feelings they’ve been pushing down.
TAURUS (APRIL 20-MAY 20):
Taurus, the pressure is on. The moon will be shining on your second house of possessions, finance, and self-esteem. For this reason, you may feel as though you’re being underestimated by others, specifically when it comes to your career, which can damage your self-esteem in turn. Since full moons are a time for reflection, now is the time to tune out those other voices, and focus on loving yourself first.
GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20):
The moon is shining on you, Gemini. Specifically, on your first house of self. Expect to find yourself in a situation that causes you to unleash your feelings on an unresolved pressure point. While this may cause a bit of drama in your personal life, you’ll be glad that you aired your feelings out in the open, instead of holding them in through the new year.
CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22):
For Cancer, the full moon will be shining on your 12th house of endings and closure. This house also represents spirituality, so this is a great time to relax and focus your energy inward. Let all of that bad energy out, and move into the new year with a clean slate.
LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22):
“It’s me, hi. I’m the problem, it’s me,” is Leo’s entire attitude this full moon — sorry! The moon will be in your 11th house of friends and networking. So, tensions may arise in social settings… and that smells like drama to me. However, this is the perfect time to confront friends and relationships that have wronged you. Don’t be afraid to speak up!
VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22):
Shining on your 10th house, the focus will be on your career, Virgo. You may be feeling as though you’re being overlooked professionally, and this may have you feeling particularly upset. However, it’s important to keep a cool head, even when you’re being confrontational. If you feel as though you’re undervalued in the workplace, speak up.
LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22):
Feeling restless, Libra? The full moon will be in your ninth house of travel, so you may be feeling a bit more adventurous these days. This is the perfect time for you to break out of your comfort zone and book that spontaneous trip you’ve been daydreaming about. Don’t hang on to that restless energy into the new year!
SCORPIO (OCT. 23-NOV. 21):
Scorpio, this is a big one for you. The full moon will be in your eighth house of death and rebirth — meaning, it’s time for you to let go. All of that emotional energy that you’ve been holding on to, it’s time to release it. This is also a signal to leave those relationships that have been holding you back from transforming into your true self. Know your worth, Scorpio!
SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22-DEC. 21):
The seventh house rules relationships, marriage, and partnerships. So, Sagittarius, this full moon will be shining on the more intimate aspects of your life. This is the time for you to reevaluate those personal relationships in your life, and how you can better communicate within them.
CAPRICORN (DEC. 22-JAN. 19):
Capricorn, it’s time for you to put your health first. The moon will be shining on your sixth house of routine, so now is the time to confront those nasty habits in your life, and rework your routines to be healthier, more sustainable, and balanced. This is also the time to incorporate some much-needed emotional self-care.
AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 18):
Now is the time to let yourself be free, Aquarius. The Gemini full moon will call attention to the things that bring you joy in life, in your fifth house. So, now is the time to get started in those passion projects you’ve been pushing to the side. It’s OK to take a break from the mundane and to make a little more time for yourself.
PISCES (FEB. 19-MARCH 20):
Finally, Pisces, the full moon will be shining a light on your fourth house of family. This is the time to confront those inner feelings and dive deeper into your roots. Because of this, you may feel more inclined to draw boundaries with some of the closest people in your life — including your family. Don’t feel ashamed of this. Put yourself first.
