Venus Retrograde And The Solstice

By: Lauren Howard Coleman


Gemini Full Moon December 18th

"It is a fair, even-handed, noble adjustment of things, that while there is infection in disease and sorrow, there is nothing in the world so irresistibly contagious as laughter and good-humour."~ Charles Dickens (A Christmas Carol)

With the Full Moon in Gemini we can usually expect lots of noise, activity, gatherings and chatter. And lots of laughter. All the more so with a trine to jovial Jupiter. This is a time of year to check in with each other, catch up on what we had missed, and get the latest information. Hear each other’s stories. Mercury, the Gemini ruling planet is now out of bounds, and with Jupiter in Aquarius we’re more likely to want to try something new and different. Go off road. Or dare to look at things from another perspective. All the more reason to want to lap up those stories.

For the past 19 months, the Lunar Nodes, the signs where the eclipses took place, were in Gemini and Sagittarius. The Nodes stretch us as a society to learn and grow. So we might also want to ask ourselves at the Full Moon in Gemini, how we have grown over the past year and a half, and what might have changed in our own perspective as a result? And if you were to tell a story about mid-2020 to 2021 from your perspective, what might that be?
