The cold moon is quite literally named such due to the cold weather that has embarked upon us. However, despite the chilly climate, we are surrounded by many forms of warmth. During this time many are huddling around the fireplace, filling their glasses with wine or eggnog, and surrounding themselves with family and friends.
When there is a lack of light and warmth from our environment, we must draw from within. As we do so, it is important to restore ourselves by allowing time for relaxation. With the cold upon us as we transition to winter, we are able to appreciate everything life has to offer sustaining us through the season.
Gemini Full Moon
Communication is the theme for this full moon. Whether it is verbal, non-verbal or self-talk (aka thinking), all forms of communication are in need of cleansing. It is time to really reflect on the words we use, our tone of voice and our subtle body language cues when engaging with others.
What message are we trying to convey? How clear and concise must we be? How do we want the other party to feel about our interaction?
These are all pertinent questions whether in a formal or casual setting. Our words, tone and body language all tend to vary depending on who we are talking with and the topic of discussion. Being mindful of each aspect of communication allows for more effective interactions.
When interacting within our minds it is important to acknowledge what we say to ourselves about ourselves, others and the world. Every thought can affect the way we see and experience our lives and the world around us.
What are we feeding our brains? What kind of world are we creating? How are we impacting ourselves and our world based on our thoughts?
It is amazing how powerful our thoughts truly are. They affect our emotions which alter our actions and behaviors. There has also been research about how our thoughts affect our physical bodies. Take some time with yourself to evaluate the type of life you want to live and make your thoughts match the world you want to create around you.
Mercury, Gemini’s ruling planet of communication, will be stationary retrograde during this full moon. This means that the planet appears to be revolving on its axis in the opposite direction. When this occurs we are able to tap into the divine feminine energies of the planet. The divine feminine includes our subconscious, softness, and divine timing.
While Mercury is in retrograde, we will be allowing our subconscious thoughts to seep into our conscious mind. This is extremely powerful because we are able to connect to our core beliefs and ideologies in a big way. These thoughts will be shared with us when necessary, so we must be patient for divine timing is at work.
As we relay these thoughts and communicate with others there will be a subtle, softness to our delivery. Remember to be aware of what we are trying to convey and how we want to conduct each interaction.
Neptune, the planet of compassion, spiritual enlightenment, and inspiration trines Jupiter our planet of luck, growth, and prosperity aiding us in our transition toward spiritual awareness and compassion for the collective. There is major spiritual growth occurring at this time. More people are empathizing with others bringing a sense of community as we share our prosperity.
Neptune squares the sun, our divine masculine, and moon, our divine feminine, creating some difficulty with balancing the two. We are struggling with our need to want to know every minute detail in our subconscious mind immediately, and our conscious scope of the bigger picture. There is an indecisive nature in how to follow our spiritual path, while a need to aim high toward fulfilling our purpose is trying to take charge. Sometimes we need to quiet the mind and find our center so we may follow our truth.
Uranus, the planet of progression, ingenuity, and intuition trines Mercury, the planet of communication and thought, and Saturn, the planet of limitations and boundaries. This dynamic is putting forth new, productive forms of communication and thought patterns. We are also able to create innovative personal boundaries giving way to a healthier, happier us. As we realize our limitations we have placed upon ourselves and others, we are finding prolific ways around them. This allows for new avenues of reaching our goals.
I plan on utilizing blues and purples during my ceremony. Lavender essential oil can either be diffused or applied to the skin bringing a relaxing and clarifying energy.
Purple and blue candles will aid in the opening of our throat and third eye chakras allowing our thoughts and communication to be cleansed.
Benzoin and rainforest incense are excellent for refreshing and renewing our space. I always enjoy clearing my space with sage before lighting my candles and incense.
I will be surrounding myself with amethyst, apophyllite and clear quartz to bring me clarity and peace of mind. Blue lace agate, blue kyanite, and blue chalcedony will be present to amplify, soften and promote positive forms of communication.
During my release I will focus on all toxic ways of thinking and communicating that are causing blockages within myself. I will let them go and ask that my third eye and throat chakra be cleansed and void of all ineffective thoughts and words.
If you choose, you may make a list of qualities you no longer want and need to release. When you are done rip it up into tiny pieces and let the wind take it away (since Gemini is an air sign). I also ask my guides to aid me in this process.
Have a wonderful release Eternal Waking Beauties. I hope this article resonates with your effervescent, beautiful souls.
