Cosmic Shifts: December Full Moon + Mercury Retrograde
Gemini Super Full Moon
December is a big month in astrology as there are a lot of changes and shifts taking place. These changes and shifts are really going to help shower us with a new energy and a new outlook for the year ahead.
The last Full Moon for 2017, falls in the air sign of Gemini on December 3, the same day that Mercury goes retrograde. This Full Moon is also a Super Moon, which means its energy is going to be amplified.
This Full Moon is all about illuminating the truth, especially when it comes to how you communicate, and your true motives and intentions. If you or someone you know has been holding back the truth or doing things for the wrong reasons, this Full Moon may force things to rise up to the surface.
The truth is going to be revealed, so be patient and allow things to unfold under the presence of this energy. Whatever truths serve your highest good are going to come to the light, so be open and know that the truth can really set you free.
Mercury goes retrograde for the final time in 2017, from December 3-22 and will be guiding all of us to reflect on the year gone by.
Whenever Mercury goes retrograde, it is time for our mind to pay a little visit to the past. These visits to the past allow us to reflect on things and to gain new information that perhaps we overlooked before.
Mercury is the messenger of the Gods and when in retrograde, it allows us to unearth buried truths or thought patterns that may be blocking us from moving forward or getting where we want to go.
Mercury rules over our mind, which is one of the most powerful tools we have. Our mind can be so powerful that it can shape our reality and change how we feel. Our mind also governs over our vibration and can help inspire us to take action or to back down.
When Mercury slips into retrograde mode, we are given the opportunity to tap into more of our subconscious mind and understand things on a deeper level. We may even receive messages from our Divine team that allows us to know the path forward.
The theme for December’s retrograde is really about releasing and shedding all the mental blocks and thought patterns from 2017 so you can enter 2018 with a fresh perspective and a new outlook.
Both the Full Moon and the Solstice are going to be helping us to wrap up any loose ends before the close of 2017, and it seems that Mercury Retrograde is also going to be helping with this process too.
During this time, the cosmos is really going to be asking us to bring closure to the year gone by and to clear through any mental chatter that we have been walking around with.
It is a time for inner reflection. It is a time to revisit the past and to reflect on where you have been and where you want to go.
As the final Mercury retrograde of the year, use this cycle to clear out the closets of your mind and work through any mental blocks or thought patterns that are keeping you from getting where you want to be.
Everything that is sent your way is a lesson and even though it can sometimes feel unfair or painful, we all have to remember that we are forever beings on a temporary journey.
Our lives are just a temporary moment in time and we are here to learn, grow and live the best we can during the moments we have been given.
The Gemini Super Full Moon is all about connecting with the truth and that includes the truth of who you really are. You are a timeless, spaceless, ageless being that lives inside a temporary vessel that is here for a journey of learning how to love yourself more, love the planet more and love one another more.
