December 18 Full Moon Astrology Forecast: Top 5 Things You Need to Know

1. The luminous full Moon in Mrigasira nakshatra within the zodiac sign of Gemini is receiving the full benefit from a flowing influence from expansive and joyful Jupiter. Utilize the wisdom of Jupiter to support you in completing any projects. That said, Jupiter is in Aquarius which is ruled by serious Saturn, so be sure to keep your objectives practical and not too expansive!

2. To get the best glimpse of the full Moon this month and its beautiful luminescence check it out at its peak at 8:35pm PT on Saturday, December 18.** The full Moon will be coming up over the NE horizon around 4pm.

3. Here are some key words for the zodiac sign and the energies of Gemini: Changeable, adaptable, social, flexible and expressive. The full Moon will illuminate and emphasize these qualities of Gemini.

4. Gemini rising friends - take note! This is your only full Moon of the year and a very special one since it is the final full Moon of 2021. For Gemini rising this is an especially good time to get closure on personal matters. For all other rising signs, the house that the zodiac sign Gemini represents in your birth chart does connect to a very specific area of your life and you can merge the house meaning with the key indications of Gemini to get the full picture for you, personally. See the next section of this newsletter for all the details!

5. Less than 6 hours after the full Moon, love-ly Venus turns retrograde. Look for a special newsletter forecast for this Venus retrograde period to arrive in the next few days. Venus only turns retrograde about once every 2 years and this is a notable astrological event!Especially for my Libra and Taurus rising friends.
