Spark those synergies! Try one of these Gemini full moon rituals to communicate and connect when this lunation lights up the skies on November 27.
Clever Gemini is the wordsmith of the zodiac, and there won’t be a shortage of witty banter being exchanged under these moonbeams. Meaningful conversations can erupt spontaneously—and happen basically anywhere. Just try not to hold up the Trader Joe’s line talking to the cashier about UFOs and crop circles. But do follow the impulse to swap IG handles if you’re feeling “new friend energy.” The Gemini full moon loves this!
1. Redefine your message
Master-marketer Gemini is a whiz with words and knows how to package profundity into clever, catchy copy. The Gemini full moon is an excellent day to do a little “brand review,” making sure your visuals, colors, text and materials express a cohesive message—and one that reflects the spirit of whatever it is you do.
Even if you don’t own a company, you can still clarify your mission and message for your Gemini full moon ritual. Examine the statement you make in the world through every visual presentation of yourself (website, social media, speaking style, etc.). Packaging yourself powerfully is vital to professional success in the digital age.
Ask a member of your inner circle to help you understand what energy you project into the world. Ask them what gifts and virtues they see as your strengths, and where you might require a little more polish. You’ll better understand how to cultivate your unique “brand identity.” Know thyself…and then promote thyself!
2. Practice active listening
Reminder! Pay attention to the other half of the communication equation: listening. When you actively take in what another person is articulating, you create a space for sharing.
How you listen matters, too.
You can be a clear channel or one that’s cluttered with judgment. (May we suggest Option A?) Active listening is NOT finishing someone’s sentence or interrupting them midstream. Challenge yourself to focus intently on their words. Pause for what might feel like an awkward moment before responding. For all you know, the best line may still be coming.
And be direct about clearing up misunderstandings. Sit people down and ask thoughtful questions to draw them out. Instead of mentally crafting a response while people talk, give them the opportunity to be seen and heard.
We’re all familiar with post-conversation exhaustion—what happens when someone has monopolized the entire dialogue. Give what you want to receive: the attentive, thoughtful, engaged and sincere listening that you desire.
3. Be a mirror for the other person
Gemini’s twinning powers encourage us to mirror back what someone is trying to articulate. After you’ve actively listened, take it one step further. Repeat their words back to them to confirm that you’re on the same page. Not in an awkward parroting way, but in the “What I think I hear you saying is [insert the summary of their communication here]. Is that right?” Maybe they’ll correct you a little, or maybe they’ll just thank you. But it’s incredibly validating to feel like someone really “gets” it.
The talkative Twins encourage us all to speak up at the Gemini full moon—voicing what’s on our mind and in our hearts. Between two people, there could be some interesting declarations and confessions—and yes, a few misunderstandings, alas. Because Gemini is ruled by Mercury the messenger planet, you could also receive intriguing news by email, phone or text. Got a question or query? Carpe DM and send that note for this Gemini full moon ritual!
4. Partner up and prosper
Two is everyone’s magic number at this synergistic full moon! Collaborate with someone whose skills complement your own. Since Gemini knows how to pass the baton, follow this choreography: Step up. Step back. Repeat.
This dynamic duo energy is especially helpful if you’ve been struggling to get a project off the ground. Perhaps the missing link in the chain is someone you’ve known for a while.
Full moons are the manifesting moment for NEW moons, which always occur half a year earlier. Where are those helpful, in-the-know people who’ve been buzzing around for the past six months? Find them and talk about making your informal connection an official tag team.
5. Channel someone else’s higher self
Have you ever waited for someone to properly say “I’m sorry” only to find yourself holding out forever? And if you DID get some kind of half-baked apology, the experience felt hollow. Well, here’s a technique we’ve tried before, which can help you gain some resolution. Put pen to paper for this Gemini full moon ritual. Relax. Imagine yourself as the person who hurt/betrayed/upset you—and write yourself a letter, as though it’s from the offending party.
This person may never extend a proper olive branch, but you’ll find as you channel their higher self (trust us, it will happen as the words flow), you resolve some of the energetic conflict. It doesn’t mean you have to bring this person back into your life, like, ever. You’ll just have the satisfaction of experiencing “them” say things like, “I’m sorry I stopped calling. I was insecure and afraid you’d reject me first.” You might even find that it doesn’t matter who actually wrote those words—but just that they got expressed.
6. Embrace your alter ego
Quirky Gemini is the sign of the alter ego. As it turns out, twinning doesn’t necessarily require another person. We are layered, multidimensional beings unto ourselves. When you look within, there’s always more “self” to discover.
The Gemini full moon can give you the courage to reveal a hidden aspect of your identity. Or, maybe just start embracing it within yourself. For the bolder among us, this lunation can feel like a cosmic coming out party. Feel free to step out as a totally different version of yourself, which could mean anything from a binary-busting gender reveal to a sophisticated make-under that you unveil during a livestream.
7. Revamp your commute
Transportation is Gemini’s domain. Ready to upgrade your commuter plan? The perfect car, bike or mobile accessory could be revealed after months of obsessive research. Are you driving around in a gas guzzler when you could be biking or taking public transportation? Could you shrink your carbon footprint with an electric or hybrid vehicle?
Maybe you keep things status quo but shift how you spend your transit time. (Whether your “transits” are to an actual job site or walks to the grocery store to take a break from your WFH station.) During commutes, listen to new music, podcasts or an inspiring audiobook. Since Gemini rules the mind, load up on intellectual stimulation. You’ll have so much to talk about when you hop back online!
8. Use a strong filter
This live-out-loud lunation comes with a code orange “blurt alert.” Information has a way of flying out of your mouth at a Gemini full moon and gossip can spread like wildfire.
Pay attention or you could mindlessly reveal something private in a text, email or post that probably had no business being there. Worse, it might be someone else’s personal data that you’re spilling like hot tea! You didn’t MEAN to give away secrets, but oops, you just did. Your Gemini full moon ritual could be to apply stronger filters to your shares—and with conscious effort. Anything you let slip can and probably will circle back to you!
9. Automatic Writing Gemini full moon ritual (with step-by-step instructions!)
Connect to your intellect, borrowing some of the concepts from the above rituals! This Gemini full moon ritual helps you get in touch with your inner “twin.”
Clever, communicative Gemini makes our conversations bright, as you know, and more so under the live-out-loud influence of a full moon. But what about the inner dialogue that you have with yourself? This ritual can help you unearth the rich landscape of your own mental plane. And all you need is a pen and paper.
For this ritual, you’ll be your own twin, allowing the voice in your head (that’s your intuition we’re talking about) to provide answers to some of your most probing questions. While this might feel strange at first, your inner twin has more to say than you may realize.
How to do this Gemini full moon ritual:
• Pick a quiet (sans music), comfortable and private place for this exercise, in solitude, if you can.
• Pour yourself a mug of tea and settle down with your journal and a favorite pen—one that just flows across a page.
• Think of a question you really want answered. Nothing is off limits but you might try phrasing your query in an action-based manner. Instead of: “When will I meet The One?” try: “What do I need to manifest true love in my life?”
• Write the question on a blank sheet of paper and then read it aloud. Place your hand on the page and allow the words to just flow.
It’s imperative to release all judgment for this Gemini full moon ritual. Trust the process and the answers will start to flow if you let your subconscious take the wheel. You may even write things that seem completely random but will later take on significant meaning.
During a similar exercise once, Ophi wrote down a strange word that made zero sense to her in the moment. When she later Googled it, she discovered it was the name of an Egyptian pharaoh who built a pyramid that pointed to the constellation of Sagittarius (our Sun sign!).
Had she brushed the word off as gibberish, she would have missed that awe-inspiring moment. Ophi’s been obsessed with Egypt and the pyramids since grade school. The ritual uncovered what was perhaps confirmation that she wandered through those very structures in some past life.
Other, simple Gemini full moon ritual ideas you can try
- Make plans for coffee or drinks with a cherished old friend
- Support a local business by shopping for some of your holiday gifts there instead of purchasing everything at big box stores, malls, outlets or online.
- Marry yourself! Hold a little commitment ceremony and vow to love, cherish and honor yourself more. Buy a “wedding ring” as a symbol of your devotion to Numero Uno for your own personalized Gemini full moon ritual. Gemini rules the hands, so adding some bling to any finger would be a nice symbol for this lunation.
