Ahhhhhhhhhhh! The full moon is building in energy, waiting to explode into a shiny ball of lightness dancing in the sky. Tomorrow she peaks at her fullest and I tell ya’ the energy is massive. I feel extreme heat shooting out of hands as I write. I must move this energy….key word….MUST! There is so much energy going on inside, we need to take the time to express it…move it…get it the heck out of us so we can release the inner tension.
This full moon highlights both the Sagittarius energies as we are in the sign of Sag and that of Gemini. Sagittarius is about wild freedom, connection to the cosmos, big ideas, dreams, visions….its about expansion. And Gemini is quite opposite, a more here and now, logical, grounded energy. So we are in the cusp of two polarities.
Cafe Astrology writes…”On Saturday morning, the Moon is full–the Gemini Moon exactly opposes the Sagittarius Sun. The Gemini-Sagittarius polarity is a mental axis, where Gemini represents the “lower mind” and Sagittarius represents the “higher mind”. A Gemini Moon encourages us to think logically, while Sagittarius persuades us to think in a far broader manner…Ideally, a balance should be found between the two energies, and this is what the Full Moon invites us to do.”
So this full moon, if you are like me, you are exploding at the seams. I have tons of ideas and inspiration swirling inside but I have to get it down on paper, organize my thoughts, and have a plan of action so I can fully release what is within. I have been getting stuck in the dream, unable to materialize and move it. I need structure. A plan of action. That is where the gifts of Gemini come in. We actually need organization and structure to be free….otherwise we get lost, stuck and overwhelmed in the chaos of the freedom. We find inertia in extreme freedom….as well as in extreme structure. So let us find the beautiful balance between the too. This full moon calls us to be responsible with our energy…we must take time to reign it in for release.
So there a couple things that might help on this full moon.
1) Write out what you no longer want in your life…stress…chaos..inertia…roadblocks…and burn it in a safe bowl or on the snow. Please use caution always 🙂
2) Write out a plan, a structured routine or schedule to organize your time. Make sure to schedule in creative expression or play time, time for movement, time to reflect and be and connect to your Divine nature. Organize the energy so it can flow fluidly, peacefully and freely. Get the kids involved. I know I’ve been planning weekly activities to do with my son ahead of time, and this is helping me get focused and scheduled for when his non school days especially. Help the kids make a calendar or schedule for themselves too…kids love structure and to do lists. Use a month calender template and glue onto some colored paper. Get the kids to put stickers and decorate the calendar. List some fun winter activity ideas by looking on Pinterest or Google schedule it in with the kids. Make some hot chocolate, put on some music, candles, incents, Christmas lights and enjoy the lovely full moon energy while you structure and organize your wild, expressive, ecstatic energy for release.
And so it is.
Enjoy the full moon.
