On the 14th of December is the full moon for the month. Known in some Native American tribes as ‘the long night’s moon’, it gets this name due to the upcoming winter solstice, where the day is at its shortest and the night is at its longest. Being the longest full moon of the year, it symbolizes the yin energy of the moon and night, the subconscious, and peering inside ourself for reflection…
This moon falls under the zodiac sign of Gemini. An air sign, Gemini are all things relating to the mind. They love to learn and are quite intelligent. One of the key traits of them is their ability to be adaptable. Going with the wind element, they approach situations with flexibility, knowing that life is always changing. Many things are currently changing, whether it be personal changes in your own life or global changes, and it is wise to take advantage of the Gemini energy this month to deal with these changes. Put emotions aside and view the situation rationally with logic. Instead of resisting change, learn from it and remember that nothing is permanent, and some changes instill growth and are beneficial for us.
With the sun still being in the sign of Sagittarius, luck and success may take play this moon, perhaps even with these changes at hand. Sagittarius is a fire sign. Full of good fortune, positivity, and joy, this sign knowns how to deal with whatever life delivers with a good outlook. Have an optimistic attitude with this upcoming month. Attract that positive Sagittarius energy, and look for the opportunities that are ahead. When you focus on the positive, success and joy are sure to follow.
