This Full Moon will take place when the Moon makes her closest approach in her orbit of the Earth. She will appear larger and brighter than usual earning her the title of 'Super Moon'.
The Full Moon in the mutable air sign of Gemini can bring an important message, announcement or idea. Projects involving communication, study or writing may come to completion or the rewards reaped for hard work and achievements in these areas.
Mercury, the light footed ruler of communication and planetary ruler of Gemini will turn retrograde on the same day as the Full Moon, completing his cycle on 23rd December.
Mercury retrograde has a reputation for bringing about misunderstandings and glitches with travel plans and technology. However, the purpose of this cycle is to prompt us to go over old ground in order to perfect and improve what we have already created or achieved. This is especially so as Saturn, the Lord of Karma and Gatekeeper of Self Mastery, joins Mercury in this part of the sky. Saturn will slow the pace down in order for us to put in the hard work and build solid foundations so we avoid taking unnecessary risks and ultimately achieve our goals and experience the liberating feeling of Self Mastery.
This is an excellent time to build on existing projects and achievements that have come to fruition; revising, rewriting, reorganising, rethinking, resale, redesigning, revisiting, reconnecting.
Mercury retro can bring memories to the surface and bring about nostalgic thoughts. Past issues that remain unresolved can be raised and messages in dreams and meditation can become more prominent.
Mercury's message is always to remind us of the power of thought, for our ideas and perceptions have the power to transform us.
