December 6th 2014 Full Moon in Gemini
A full moon occurs at 7:27AM ET at 14 degrees 17 minutes of Gemini. In Gemini, words have greater meaning. Everything we say has meaning, even if we’re not saying the actual words we feel. The feeling is evident anyway, and we can sense how we feel through the tone of voice, the way we say things, or the things we don’t say. We want to share how we feel, especially since we feel more anxious than usual, but we’re not sure how to go about opening up. It can be difficult for us to separate logic from feeling, and get our facts and emotions jumbled up. This full moon is opposite transit (moving) Mercury in Sagittarius, and Mercury is the natural ruler of Gemini, so this complicates our communications. We think we’re being clear but we’re not, we have misunderstandings and fights with people, and we lack mental patience and focus. We need to refrain from saying anything in the heat of the moment that we’ll regret later. If you're a Gemini Sun, Moon, or mid-Gemini rising, you may feels the effects of this moon most.
December 21st 2014 New Moon in Capricorn
A new moon occurs at 8:36PM ET at 0 degrees 6 minutes of Capricorn. In Capricorn, we’re ready to get down to business. We don’t want to waste any time on anything that won’t at least get us closer to achieving our goals. We’re hard-working and practical, focused and disciplined. We’re concerned with getting ahead, personally and professionally. We set new goals for ourselves and feel good about our chances of succeeding. We make plans that we know we can follow because we can see how all of the pieces fit together right now. We can face our responsibilities and do what has to be done, and don’t feel it’s holding us back. Capricorn rules politicians and the government, so they could be in the spotlight (hopefully not as a problem), along with authority figures. If you're a Capricorn Sun, Moon, or rising, you may feel the effects of this moon most.
