On Tuesday, December 13th 2016, the Super Full Gemini Moon arrives in my time zone. However, your mileage may vary – be sure to check for your local time HERE. It is also known as The Full Long Nights Moon, and is the final Supermoon and Full Moon for 2016. Once again, I turned to the interwebz to see what this means for us astrologically.
The December 13-14 Full Moon falls in the airy sign of Gemini and will be culminating events, feelings and emotions that took place around the Sagittarius New Moon back in November.
December’s Full Moon is actually another Super Moon that has been part of a series focused on bringing illumination to the world.
Whatever has been buried beneath the surface of your life has most likely come to a head in the last few months and this last Super Moon is going to bring the final point of illumination for 2016.
This is extremely powerful energy which is going to be helping you to purge all that you need to let go of so you can welcome in the new energy of 2017 with open arms and a fresh perspective.
2016 has been a heavy year of endings and letting go, whereas 2017 is a year that is set to be full of new beginnings and fresh starts.
This December Full Moon is now going to be one of your final assessment points where you will be able to review what you have learned and what you are going to be bringing with you into the new cycle.
If there is energy you are still processing, if there are issues that are still coming up for you, they will join you in the new cycle of 2017 unless you make a conscious effort to transcend them now.
There is still time to release and let go of the things you no longer desire to bring with you into the new year. In fact, you have till March 2017 to really release and let go, however after this Full Moon, the energy to release will grow dimmer and dimmer.
If you really feel ready to shed, if you really feel a desire to release and let go, if you really feel a desire to transform into your absolute and fullest potential, if you are ready for this, the Universe will offer you an invitation.
Next, a little bit about the whole, “Supermoon” thing, from the EarthSky website –
What’s a supermoon? It’s a new or full moon closely coinciding with perigee – the moon’s closest point to Earth in its monthly orbit. An astrologer, Richard Nolle, coined the term supermoon over 30 years ago, but now many in astronomy use it as well. Are supermoons hype? In our opinion … gosh, no, just modern folklore. They’ve entered the popular culture (check out Sophie Hunger’s music video in this post, for example). And they can cause real physical effects, such as larger-than-usual tides. In ancient times, astronomers used an instrument called a diopter to measure the moon’s angular diameter, noting the variation in size of close and far moons. According to the definition of supermoon coined by Nolle, the year 2016 has a total of six supermoons. The new moons of March, April and May and the full moons of October, November and December all qualify as supermoons.
Finally, here is the graphic I created for the occasion, using a picture I took of the moon last December (when we had a Christmas Full Moon). Bright Super Full Gemini Moon Blessings!
