The December Gemini Full Moon Unlocks Partnership Potential

Kindred spirits unite! The Gemini full moon casts a spell on December 7 and reveals unexpected connections.

What the Gemini full moon means, 8 ways to embrace the energy, and your horoscope for that day.

What is the date of the 2022 Gemini full moon?

The Gemini full moon is on Wednesday, December 7, at 11:08 PM EST.

The Algonquin tribes and early colonial Americans called December’s lunation the Full Cold Moon for obvious reasons (brrr, it’s cold in a lot of parts of the world right now!)

What is the meaning of a Gemini full moon?

What happens when the moon is in Gemini

What you say is what you get. Words are powerful attractors under the light of the loquacious full moon in Gemini. Articulate your dreams, desires and wishes aloud. Post about them on social media, to the degree you feel comfortable. Someone in your circle (or a degree of separation away) could point you toward important resources that help you manifest your vision.

With the full moon in the sign of the Twins, a creative partnership could turn into an official dynamic duo. If you’ve been hustling together for the past six months, plan a drop or debut or get the buzz going! Need a new set of wheels? Since transportation is Gemini’s domain, this full moon may light the way to the perfect car or mobile accessory for commutes.

What you don’t want to do, however, is deliver any scathing critiques or play devil’s advocate because you’re bored. With combative Mars retrograde sitting close to the full moon, you risk inflaming tension. Do your best to keep discussions positive and proactive. If you’re having trouble flipping that switch, find some sounding boards (ideally ones who have nothing to do with the situation) who can help you talk through your full range of feelings.

What does a Gemini full moon mean for love?

Bring some levity into your love game! The year’s only full moon in Gemini illuminates lighthearted ways to sync up.

Think of your other half as your playmate, or revamp your dating app profile to reveal as much about your extracurricular interests as your long-term life plans. Kindred spirits could unite under this twinning influence. Or should we say reunite, since this full moon arrives in close contact to retrograde Mars.

For the two weeks that follow, keep yourself in “pairing mode.” If you feel that spark of potential (or soul recognition!), make a move. Saying hello never hurt anyone, right? Whether for romance, friendship or a creative collaboration, you might attract your missing puzzle piece. Local searches could be fruitful! Stay out of a tech trance while you’re walking around your neighborhood. Your future mate could be waiting in line behind you at the post office or grocery store. Or you might find the perfect date-night option in your very own zip code.

How does the Gemini full moon affect me?

8 ways to spark synergy at the December Gemini full moon

1. Practice active listening

Clever Gemini is the wordsmith of the zodiac, and there won’t be a shortage of witty banter being exchanged under these moonbeams. 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 the former?) For example: “I already know what they’re gonna say, so why don’t I finish their sentence?” is NOT a practice of active listening. Challenge yourself to pause for a (slightly uncomfortable) amount of time before responding. For all you know, the best line may still be coming. 

Since Gemini rules the hands, gesticulate wildly for added emphasis. (Just make sure you don’t accidentally sucker punch anyone!) And be direct about clearing up any 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. Check out techniques from Mind Tools on Active Listening.

2. 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!

3. Partner up and prosper during the Gemini full moon.

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.

Head’s up: This flirty full moon can be titillating

But Gemini’s energy is generally more platonic than romantic. That’s not to say that love can’t spring forth from the friend zone…hey, you never know! A kismet connection could spark with someone you’ve interacted with daily but never thought about THAT way before. This might even be a coworker, bandmate or even a partner on an important project.

Just avoid the “act first, ask questions later” impulsivity that are classic Gemini AND full moon behavior—especially if blurring lines could bring future drama. Single? Revamp your dating app profiles to reveal as much about your extracurricular interests as your long-term life plans.

In the case of business dealings, consult a lawyer. Alliances that have been bubbling over the past six months since the Gemini new moon may formalize quickly. Draft an official agreement. It’s always a smart idea, if only to prevent miscommunications from happening down the line. 

4. 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. 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 that words—but just that they got expressed. 

5. 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 reveal during a livestream. 

6. Revamp your commute

Transportation is Gemini’s domain. Ready to upgrade your commuter style? 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!

7. Use a strong filter at the Gemini full moon

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. Apply stronger filters to your shares during this full moon—and with conscious effort. Anything you let slip can and probably will circle back to you!

8. 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 at this full moon. 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!
