Now that eclipse season is finally over, you have the freedom to release or manifest as you please. And it's better to relinquish than to try to attract during the Full Moon in Gemini on Saturday, December 18.

This Full Moon will be bringing us an abundance of change. If you've actively aligned yourself with the universe, you’ll find that releasing something that needs to go will come effortlessly. Try not to get stuck on the difficulties that accompany liberation. The more you know, the easier it is for you to make informed decisions. However, there’s no need to beat a dead horse with the expectation that it will provide you with new information. Let this metaphorical horse lay to rest while you make room for new life.

This Full Moon urges you to understand the value of space. Just because you aren't using all your time and resources to their full extent doesn't mean you’re taking a loss. A lack of space will halt new growth and opportunities. In the words of astrologer and spiritual creative AstroDim, “One of the lessons of communication we will be having is learning how to speak with and to authority. The Full Moon in Gemini may help us have important conversations with others, so we can work on breaking free from the constraints we align ourselves with.”

Read your Full Moon horoscope:


You want to be a passive observer, learning about people by watching their behaviors and actions. However, this Full Moon has other plans in store. You’re supposed to speak your mind! You’ll experience feelings of stagnancy and an inability to let go unless you step out of silence and bring your thoughts to life. Speak up!


Are you willing to let go of what you no longer need in order to make space for what was destined for you? Taurus, you place a lot of value on tangible items you can hold. Taking a financial or material loss can feel particularly uncomfortable. Trust that when there is an imbalance one month, balance will follow the next month.


My simple advice to you is to continue being you—who you are is enough. This past year has continuously pushed you towards your purpose. You've been focusing on personal development and fully expressing yourself. Take time to reflect on the long-term changes you’ve made to be the person you’ve become. There’s no need to bully or critique yourself. Focus on celebrating your hard work!


It looks like you need to show a little less face and say “no” to some opportunities. You’re a natural networker, and usually it sets you up for success. But this Full Moon is releasing you from responsibilities that you’ve fulfilled or grown out of. Trust that your intuition will guide you through which responsibilities are worth holding onto, and let everything else go. The goal is for you to not overextend yourself.


You’re managing many moving pieces and creative projects, but you need to ask yourself if what you’re doing today is distracting you from your goals, or attracting success? Sometimes, when we care very deeply about a specific outcome, we find ways to worry ourselves away from it. While it’s important to honor your concerns, let go of overthinking. Sometimes it just turns into shooting yourself in the foot.


You're inclined to direct your energy towards your home life and family right now. It’s noble to want to spend your time around those you care about, and even the art of expressing yourself in your physical space is worth being appreciated. This Full Moon is giving you permission to take a break from worrying about the future. It won’t disappear because you took a moment to breathe. In fact, you’ll come back feeling rejuvenated.


This Full Moon shouldn’t be hard for you. You're a cardinal air sign, after all—so release what you’ve learned, because times are changing. As our society expands and flows, it’s becoming more necessary than ever for you to approach life with an open mind. There will be opportunities for you to learn and deepen your understanding of the world. Try not to act like a know-it-all who’s seen it all, it’ll only hurt you in the long run.


It takes money to make money, but you need to be careful with your finances during the Winter months. You may feel called to share your resources freely, but be careful not to over-extend and give more than what you’re capable of giving. Be intentional in how and who you offer love to. There’s no need to drag yourself through the snow for those who wouldn’t welcome you near the fire.


Take a seat and be observant—it’ll make a world of difference. The people around you are rarely as understanding as they seem. Watch, and allow those around you to reveal themselves to you. Approach life with an open mind. Active listening skills will help you discern how to move forward. There’s no need to unnecessarily assert yourself during this Full Moon.


As your birthday approaches, you’re being called to ground your mind. Planning too far into the future and worrying about the next five years will only lead you down a path of anxiety. As the winter approaches, you’ll feel the most relief when you leave work at work and focus on clearing mindful chatter. Your obligations and dreams will still be there after you have ample rest.


Allow time for play and pleasure. You’re not being tied down right now, and you have the freedom to let your mind wander. Try flirting with a digital match or taking pen to paper and writing to your dream partner. Often, when we let our minds explore, we're able to find our next big idea.


As the crisp, cool winter air approaches, open your windows and let in its energy. The change of seasons—whether you like them or not—is always an energetic aid to you, as a mutable water sign. The chill acts as a reminder to brush away the fall leaves and ensure there’s no more lingering grains of sand from summer. Light a candle and cozy up with your loved ones to help release stagnant energy.
