This Full-Moon-in-Gemini Limpia Will Help You Speak Your Truth
As 2022 comes to an end, the astrological events taking place will keep you on your toes. Along with the Gemini full moon and the Capricorn new moon that follows, Mercury goes retrograde on Dec. 29. Mercury is the planet of communication, intellect, and awareness, and it is also the ruling planet of Gemini. This usually means that Geminis are bubbling with new ideas and concepts and that communication with others is key to bringing them to life. However, when Mercury goes retrograde it can create the opposite. Communication can get wonky, and ideas are not clearly laid out. There may be delays in travel, and electronics can go haywire. These minor setbacks may cause the impatience of Gemini to surface. So, tread lightly.
The good news is that the Gemini full moon takes place before Mercury goes retrograde, so it offers a space of release. Remember that full moons are about letting go, shedding old skin, and creating space. So, during the full moon in Gemini, really take stock of all the things you’ve been holding onto that no longer serve you. It’s a time to go inward and see yourself. What are the patterns that keep reoccurring in your life? What are the things, people, or situations that could be shed to embrace your highest self? How do you show up for yourself and love yourself?
These are all questions you can ask yourself while indulging in a Gemini full moon limpia. The answers will help you to heal and grow and love yourself just a bit more. Be kind to yourself. Gemini is represented by the twins, which symbolizes that there are two sides to every story, and two sides to human nature.
When is the Full Moon in Gemini?
The full moon in Gemini peaks on Dec. 7 at 11:08 pm EST. Now here’s the twist. Mars, which is currently in retrograde, will be in a conjunction with Gemini at 11:19 pm EST. This adds potency to the full moon which really helps to release old versions of yourself that need to be released for growth in the new year.
What Does the 2022 Full Moon in Gemini Mean?
Gemini holds the essence of communication. This air sign is intelligent and curious and makes almost any idea seem possible. Tap into your inner Gemini whether it is your sun, moon, or ascending sign or not. We all possess the traits from all 12 zodiac signs because they all have a placement in our birth chart. So, during the full moon in Gemini, think about all the things you have wanted to say but have held back. Unblock that throat chakra and find the courage to speak your truth, knowing that what you have to say matters.
Pay close attention to your emotions during this time. Gemini can air on the side of restless, gossipy, and even neurotic if the ideas being communicated aren’t understood or accepted. Take deep breaths to calm your nerves and release tension in your shoulders and arms. All body parts are ruled by Gemini. As you indulge in your spiritual limpia during the Gemini full moon, take deep breaths, filling up your lungs, before releasing. Gemini also rules the lungs. So, with every exhale, really release what needs to go, and embrace the new versions of yourself that are hidden under the layers.
