When emotions are running high, people are lashing out, and chaos is chasing you left and right, you know it must be a full moon. After all, a full moon has a tendency increase the tension until you’re this close to reaching your breaking point. There’s even an astrological reason for all this cosmic mayhem, because it’s during a full moon that the moon and the sun form an exact opposition. Since the moon rules over your spirituality and the sun rules over your ego, it can feel like two very different sides of yourself are clashing when a full moon takes place. Wait until you see how the December 2021 full moon will affect your zodiac sign, because it’s bound to be intense.

This upcoming full moon takes place in Gemini, and in the zodiac, Gemini is represented by the twins. Geminis are known for their dual personalities, and although this can instantly make you think of an angel one shoulder and a devil on the other, it’s not that simple. Being a mutable air sign, Geminis are always capable of seeing two different sides of a story. When new information arises, a Gemini will readily change their opinion rather than cling on to their former perspective. This mental versatility makes Gemini a keen observer and a fast learner, which means this full moon will likely shed light on details you weren’t previously aware of, proving that nothing is black or white. Some may say Geminis can’t make up their minds, but it’s more accurate to say that they changed their mind.

Although Gemini tends to be far more intellectual than emotional, this full moon might be surprisingly sentimental and exalting. This full moon will form a trine with Jupiter in Aquarius, which will only expand your thoughts and feelings. It’ll also encourage you to socialize and connect with people who inspire you, because the possibilities are endless when you team up with others and combine your ideas.

Taking place on Dec. 18 at 11:35 p.m. ET, this full moon will affect each zodiac sign in its own unique way. Here’s how:

You may be coming to terms with what you want and what you need. While luxury is a beautiful thing to strive for, try not to let it overshadow all the needs that continue to be met. Luxury loses its luster after a while, especially once it becomes an expectation rather than a pleasant surprise. Let this full moon remind replenish your luxuries and remind you of what to feel grateful for.


Your sparkling personality attracts a lot of attention. So much of this attention has been positive, but some of it has also been negative. And it’s the negative attention that may have taught you to hold back some of your sparkle just in case you outshine someone else. This full moon is encouraging you to take back your sparkle. It’s time to sparkle as brightly as you damn well please.


No matter how busy or chaotic the world gets, your inner world always belongs to you. It’s through your imagination and your spirituality that you can transport yourself to other dimensions and heal your energy. Let this full moon help you reconnect with your inner world. Let it help you clear away the clutter in your subconscious and capture the zen you need.

Instead of letting your career happen to you, it’s time that you happened to your career. This full moon will remind you of the goals that truly matter to you, and if you’re still chasing pipe dreams, it’s time to get your head in the game.

You’re seeing things in a brand new light and it might just encourage you to take a risk.
