The full moon is on Wednesday, December 11, 11: 12 p.m. at 19° Gemini. With the moon in Gemini, there's always trouble with decision making. Often there are just too many choices. This will be added to by the Moon squared to Neptune in the full moon chart. Many of the choices will be nebulous or even non-existent or scams. It reminds me of seven of cups in Tarot, meaning that some of the things you think you really want may not be good for you. Wait a few days before making major choices. Use your search engine to find reviews of products you want to buy. I totally understand that it's shopping season, but just take a deep breath and think through your selection.
Moon is Gemini energy is generally very fun and social. With the Neptune square though, it's more likely we'll give in to our temptations and addictions while socializing. Have fun but make sure you have the support you need to get through the next few days without letting go of your goals for health and sanity.
Another aspect in the full moon chart is Venus (20° Capricorn) contained by Saturn (19° Cap) and Pluto (21° Cap). For the next day or two, poor sweet Venus (your capacity for love) is held captive by mean old Saturn and seductive Pluto. Wait a few days before making major relationship decisions or commitments. Do your best to express Venus at the highest level with an affirmation of unconditional love. Surround yourself with beauty, maybe art and decorations reflecting the spirit of the season. Scents and fragrances can help us lift our Venus too.
Here are two affirmations for Venus:
There is also Jupiter trine Uranus aspect on December 15th, from 2° Capricorn to 2° Taurus. This has an orb of about 5 days on either side of the 15th. This aspect brings a harmonious expansion of creativity. The practicality of the earth signs Capricorn and Taurus can help you take your brilliant ideas from your imagination and make them usable in every day life.
