Full Cold Moon
December 3rd 2017
The Full Moon takes place in Gemini on December 3rd. The moon in Gemini might have you feel outgoing and extroverted. You could be finding yourself more light hearted, cheerful and sociable than normal.
The Full Moons represent fulfillment, celebration and the turning point of a cycle; after tonight, the moon will begin to wane back to New. This Full Moon in particular is also signaling the coming Winter season ahead for those of us on the Northern Hemisphere.
Seek comfort in your Ebb...
What does this mean? This New Moon cycle is all about the winding down of the seasons, embracing our darkness and embarking on transformation... Find the comfort in the chaos and look for the peace in the unfolding. The Winter season is inevitable, (even if you don't experience literal snow where you live!) so you might as well learn to adapt in the best way possible!
Do something to honor yourself and aid in your relaxation right now. Go into hibernation mode if you have to- whatever that might mean to you. Take a nice bath with a cup of coffee, binge watch your favorite show with a glass of wine, or stay in with a nice sketchbook or novel. You define your level of comfort. Seek out the experiences and rituals that offer you comfort even if the outside world is full of chaos.
The card pulled for this phase is the Super Moon card. Be prepared for anything during this phase.
The emotionally charged Full Moon is in the airy sign of Gemini and goes opposite the Sun in Sagittarius on the 3rd, while on the 1st, Venus entered Sagittarius.. igniting many aspects of communication within our relationships and how we express ourselves to others.
The Super Moon card indicates that a lot is going on... and anything is possible, so watch your emotions, be mindful of your habits, and choose your words wisely.
Mercury also goes retrograde on the 3rd in the sign of Sagittarius! It's important to keep an open mind and go with the flow. Use the time in Scorpio to delve into your spiritual studies and practices. Tune yourself to the moon and truly listen to your intuition before acting. Remember that Mercury retrograde is not a bad thing!
It is a normal occurrence that holds the opportunity to bring you closer to yourself and others. Your communication methods (and even technology) may be put to the test during this time, but it's nothing to worry about. Mercury Retrograde has a way of showing us what needs to be reworked for our lives to flow smoother in the future.
Don't forget to check back on December 3rd for the Full Moon Ceremony honoring the Cold Moon!
Last Quarter Moon
December 10th 2017
The Last Quarter Moon takes place in the sign of Virgo, the Healer. The Virgo energy, mixed with the Last Quarter Moon may have you feeling a bit on edge. There is going to be a lot of energy and it will need a place to go!
On December 9th, Mars enters the intense sign of Scorpio and amps up the energy and powerful emotions even more. The Waning Moon may have you wanting to finish up goals or tie up loose ends which is important as that energy does need to go somewhere.
Utilize this Virgo energy by looking for ways you can bring more organization into your life for the new year ahead. Virgo holds the ability to solve organizational problems in a creative way. So allow the Virgo within you to do it's job during the Waning/Last Quarter Cycle. You can organize areas of your home, donate to a thrift store, brainstorm new ideas for the upcoming year, etc.
The card pulled for this phase is the Connect card. Remember that everything is connected!
This Virgo energy may be calling you to clean your house and organize small aspects of your life, but understand that this is connected to larger areas of your life. Everything is connected!
It's been said that the way we do one thing is the way we do everything.. try keeping your home organized and clean or working with a to-do list more consecutively and see what clarity it can bring to different areas in your life.
This will also be important for the transition of Saturn into Capricorn on December 20th. This transit will bring our careers and our social status into focus. You may find yourself more driven towards self discipline. So use this time to help prepare yourself.
Have a happy New Moon!
Remember to prepare for the winter season ahead. Tonight is a powerful night, so be sure to set a solid intention.
Don't forget to cleanse and charge your crystals and decks under the New Moon.While you are at it, cleanse your body and nourish your soul in any way you can..
