On the 12th of December, the full moon will take place Gemini at exactly 5:12 am GMT. The full moon in Gemini manifests itself by the need for spontaneity and change. Safety lies in thinking about your thoughts and feelings and sharing them with those around you. You might have the ability to keep a cool head but beware of having a cold heart can discourage others. Harmony of feeling and thinking is essential.
As with any other full moon, surgical operations are strongly not recommended during the Full Moon.
This December full moon is commonly known in the Northern Hemisphere as the "Full Long Nights Moon." It takes its name from the winter solstice, which is the longest night in the year. The Full Nights Moon" cuts a soaring trajectory through the wintry skies, in direct opposition to the low - hanging sun. This year, it is the very last full moon before the 2019 winter solstice, which makes it the Mourning Moon according to Pagan tradition. For our early Pagan ancestors, this was a time of stopping bad habits and cleansing from making one stronger to service the cold, cold winter ahead.
For those who are more inclined towards solitude, "The Full Long Moon" provides an excellent opportunity to enjoy your cosy home in peace and quiet. Consider taking some restful naps under warmth or allow yourself to lounge in bed in the mornings instead of getting up immediately to work. This full moon is an excellent time for you to take a long-overdue break and recharge your batteries so that you can shine brighter when it comes to you needing this energy again.
This period of restfulness is also very conducive to introspect. When you look inwards and take stock of your life during this time, try to focus on loose ends and the little things that you have left hanging around throughout the year. This is the last full moon before the new year begins, this full moon is bringing a time of endings. Take advantage of this full moon's energy and bring an end to tasks that you have been leaving and putting off, clearing your mind so you can move forward with a clean slate!
Although "The Full Long Nights" may be about endings, it is also about rebirth and new beginnings. This is a perfect time to start planning your New Year's resolutions and set exciting new goals for 2020.
