Today’s full moon in Gemini—which occurred at 1:04 EST but whose energy abounds all day—exactly conjuncts the asteroid Chaos. Especially since we’re already under the shadow of Mercury Retrograde (it officially begins December 19), communication—governed by Mercury, which is also Gemini’s ruling planet—is bound to be a whirling dervish. So just let it all out. Say what you need to say, worry about making sense later, and know that all that will remain when the moondust settles is what you need, not what you want. (#Saturn opposes this full moon, and that schoolmarm means business.) My one other piece of advice: Make love your means, not merely your end. It’ll help this not-so-sweet medicine go down
Today is a full moon—a super moon in stabilizing Taurus, no less—and full moons are for release. It is not in my nature to feel relentless anger and grief. But for the last week, I’ve been unable to spin the tragedy we just birthed into the world. Spin is how we got into this fucked-up mess in the first place, and I feel a bottomless despair. So today I’m surrendering my sorrow, my rage, and my hopelessness to something bigger than myself. I am surrendering it to Mary, to Yemaya, to Oshun, to the divine feminine that has always nourished me and everyone else even when we paid her no mind. The powerful, limitlessly kind energy that I felt as a lonely, terrified child unshored by anyone or anything else. I hope I will be brave again tomorrow but today I am at my littlest and most helpless. I need a strong, unsolicited embrace. I need a meal cooked tenderly by someone else. I need a cool hand on my forehand. I need a mother, so today I am giving it up to Her.
