Hi loves! This week is going to be a special one. Not only are we celebrating a Full Moon in Gemini this Thursday but for us here in the U.S. it’s also Thanksgiving!
A Full Moon is a beautiful time to gather with your community and loved ones. The Full Moon offers magical energy to celebrate all you’ve done internally do far this lunar cycle and put steps into action on what you hope to manifest leading up to our new lunar season in Sagittarius. It’s a time to dance, open up, honor yourself, love freely, express gratitude and embrace your inner magic.
The Thanksgiving Full Moon on Nov. 22nd rests in Gemini, the home of our communication and natural curiosity. Gemini encourages us to open up to the constant flow of creativity and information that surrounds us. It’s a beautiful moon to allow yourself to receive inspiration and information. When you’re gathered at the dinner table, harness this moon energy and cultivate meaningful conversations. Gently remind yourself that everyone is entitled to an opinion and to approach conflicts gently and with an open heart. The more we understand that everyone is moved by different perceptions, the more we can work to align together and elevate our community.
The Full Moon in Gemini
This week’s Full Moon will be a much-needed break from the energetic and emotional ride that Scorpio has taken us through. This moon’s energy will encourage you to look at a problem or confrontation from all sides and encourage a shift in perspective. We can’t ask for a better energetic push as we visit family and friends. Gemini shows us empathy through sincere compassion. This Full Moon will be more grounding and offer some resolution into our inner turmoil as we move gently into Sagittarius season.
All of the energy stirred up over the last month is now coming to a head as we wrap up the end of the year, and we may be feeling a sense of renewal or rebirth creeping in. We may be feeling the merits of our hard work finally paying off.
As we all move forward with not just our moon cycles but also our personal transformation + challenges, there will be an emphasis on how to do so without being overwhelmed under the Gemini Full Moon.
Some Full Moon affirmations for this week are -
I am full of compassion + understanding.
I communicate concisely and powerfully.
Celebrating the Full Moon in Gemini
Because of this moon’s open energy and loving spirit, it’s a great time to meet with those you love and share in all the beauty + magic that life has to offer. It’s a great time either host/attend a moon circle or a small gathering.
Whether you share a meal together or meditate and pull from The Moon Deck, take some time either free-write off the following journal prompts or share out loud with a group. I encourage you to share them with others and really flex that Gemini energy. You’ll be amazed by the conversations that spark from it.
Scorpio sun energy (and moon) from last month taught us to dig deep and go to the dark corners of our being. What did you learn last moon cycle about yourself? What are the takeaways?
Gemini is a sign all about connection, especially socially. What different sides are there to you that you want to embrace more fully? What sides of yourself are you not as proud of and want to redirect?
How can you be more open-minded in the challenges you're currently facing?
What are you grateful for? List all of it. The good, bad and ugly. There's a lesson in it A L L.
