Tying up loose ends is the name of the game for the last full moon of 2022. Lunar musings, crystal helpers, and a ritual of gentle self-reflection can be powerful tools to help us Bless it all, and then Release it all! All in preparation of the coming of the 2023 cycle...
We welcome the Full Cold Moon, also known as the Long Night Moon & the Snow Moon.
"Gemini is the sign of the ever-curious Twins. This energy represents the duality of the Universe that is present within all of us. It is a mirror to our own changing energy and shows us how paradoxical life can become. If you’ve ever felt two emotions simultaneously or felt pulled in two directions, you were embodying the energy of Gemini. It is the makings of bittersweet memories, wavering opinions, and indecisiveness. Gemini reminds us that we are complex creatures and not everything in this world is black or white. There are shades of gray, where nothing is clear. In this energy of uncertainty, though, we find magic and endless possibilities.
Gemini carries the ability to change our lives at lightning speed. This energy brings new information quickly into our lives. Make sure you ground your energy on this Full Moon so that you feel stable in your vibration to receive information. Allow your consciousness to widen as you interact with the world around you and exchange energy with different people. Let yourself be confused, and let yourself wonder about what lessons you have yet to learn. You may never hold all the keys to the Universe, but luckily there are people around willing to share their knowledge and help you expand. Be grateful and be open to every energy you come in contact with this Full Moon, and let it help you evolve."
"Gemini is represented by the twins, where one twin is mortal and the other immortal. The twins represent both sides of our being. We are both human and soul. There is part of us that will die and part of us that will live forever. This unity of our human selves and spiritual selves is what the Gemini Full Moon calls us to balance.
Under the Full Moon, we may find ourselves needing to honor and be patient with our human side. We are only human. It is ok that we have feelings, that we make mistakes, and that we don’t always know the way...No matter what is coming up for you under this Full Moon, see if you can honor your human and soul side. See if you can connect with each of these parts of yourself like you were connecting with an old friend. Listen to what they have to say, treat them with respect, and balance will naturally follow."
Tying up loose ends is the name of the game for the last full moon of 2022.

All in preparation of the coming of the 2023 cycle...

The last weeks of 2022 are slipping by, and it is time to look back and check in with ourselves about what made this year unique, challenging, joyful, and all the ways we were deeply touched by experiences, people and places over the past 12 months.
One way to make all these growth experiences even more meaningful is to write about them--Write a letter to your future self, to be opened at the end of next year, that way you will be able to look back and see how much you've learned, and appreciate all the ways in which life changes, evolves, and remember moments of particular joy and beauty.
Remember, it can be whatever you want or need it to be! Once you finish, seal it, Label it "Do not open until December 2023" and keep it somewhere safe. In this way you can let go, stop holding on to everything so tightly, but you also know you have a refresher in store to remind you of important lessons, bring back good memories, and remind you of how far you've come!
Cast your mind back and think about all the special moments of this year, and where you are in your vision and goals for the coming year. Use this letter to create a snapshot of who you are in this moment, at the edge of 2022-2023, your hopes & dreams, favorites memories & most humorous flops...
