Get your primal scream ready for the last full moon of the year. December’s full moon in Gemini—also called the "Full Cold Moon"—will ignite and instigate your deepest frustrations as it lights up the sky on December 7 at 11:09 p.m.

Full moons signify culminations, turning points, and revealed information. Just as the moon reflects the sun’s rays, knowledge that was once hidden is exposed. With the moon in talkative Gemini, we may feel more called to self-express and share feelings we’ve been keeping to ourselves, as the Gemini-Sagittarius axis is all about learning, connection, and communication.

The moon sits exactly next to Mars retrograde in Gemini, marking the halfway point of our Mars retrograde journey. This is an invitation for you to rethink how you want to expend your energy. You may feel like there’s an overwhelming amount of potential options for you to pursue, but which is the most aligned for your highest good? The full moon will reveal clues and information about how you may want to proceed. Any resentment or lingering anger that you’ve glossed over in the past can also come up. This is reactive energy, so think before you speak.

Any confrontations today will ultimately lay the foundation for a more sustainable path forward. Think of a kettle screeching as it reaches the boiling point, and the sweet release that comes as you remove it from the stove.

This full moon may also stir up buried frustrations—and the collective weapon of choice is words. Mercury, the planet of the mind, is in charge of this full moon, and it will be clashing with larger-than-life Jupiter. Opinions can be over-exaggerated, and it’s easy to jump to conclusions. Slow down and clue into the minute details. Use your words to empower others, not belittle them. And most importantly, don’t be afraid to assert yourself and stand up for your needs.

The good news: Any confrontations today will ultimately lay the foundation for a more sustainable path forward. Think of a kettle screeching as it reaches the boiling point, and the sweet release that comes as you remove it from the stove. After the moon meets with Mars, it will harmonize with taskmaster Saturn, a rational planet that will lend energy to finding a constructive resolution. The truth may hurt or pierce our hearts in some way under today’s moonbeams, but whatever messages are received will help you re-evaluate and dream bigger.

For more insight on how this full moon will affect you, specifically, read on for your sun, moon, and rising signs. Then, pick up a bespoke self-care practice to find peace on this high-emotions day.

Here's what the full moon in Gemini has in store for your zodiac sign

Aries

It’s time for you to share what’s been weighing on your heart as the full moon lights up your third house of communication and self-expression. With the moon’s connection to Mars, it’s likely you have some frustrations that you’re ready to address. Verbal combat is more intense than normal today, so choose your words wisely.

Your full moon self-care practice: Get in the shower, turn up the music full volume, and scream, or do it into a pillow. Allow your body to physically express any rage that’s been building within you. It will be cathartic.

Taurus

Some financial frustrations reach a boiling point under the full moon as it moves through your second house of income and resources. You may be hit with an unexpected bill or accidental overspending. Don’t shame yourself—this is an opportunity to realign your budget. Frustrations in the workplace can also manifest and bring conversations about raises or promotions to a climax.

Your full moon self-care practice: Practice building an abundance mindset. Beyond money, where can you recognize abundance in your life? A full fridge? A warm hug from a loved one? A pair of shoes you wanted for a long time and finally have? Be grateful for what you have and where you are now.

Gemini

The spotlight is on you with the full moon moving through your sign and first house of identity, physical appearance, and personal ambitions. In what ways have you been overextending yourself and self-sacrificing? If you’ve been putting your needs on the back burner, voice the imbalance to your partner or another loved one. Remember: Advocating for yourself isn’t selfish. If you’re feeling triggered, step away, and take your time to have this conversation with care.

Your full moon self-care practice: A physical shift can spark an internal revolution. Cut your hair, change up your eye makeup, or try dressing in a new way. This deviation from the norm will feel inspiring.

Cancer

The full moon moves through your 12th house of closure, mental health, spirituality, and healing—which may shine a light on one of your blind spots. If you’ve been feeling resentful about something, this full moon is likely going to bring the big reveal. It’s time to put words to your feelings. When you spend time honoring and addressing what’s been building, you’re simultaneously setting yourself free. Conversations today can ultimately lead to healing; there just may be some tension along the way.

Your full moon self-care practice: Put your phone on “Do Not Disturb,” and protect your peace at all costs. In order to heal and integrate a deeper sense of closure, you’ll need to invest in some solo time.

Leo

This full moon activates your 11th house of friendship, networking, and your hopes and ambitions for the future. Drama within your friend groups could be bubbling to the surface, or perhaps you need to set some boundaries with friends. You may be more cognizant than normal of how the people you surround yourself with affect your own mental health.

Your full moon self-care practice: Think about your friendships. Are they reciprocal? How do you feel after spending time with certain people? If you’re recognizing a theme of feeling drained or under-appreciated, protect your time moving forward.

Virgo

Repressed resentment and frustration make themselves known today as the full moon lands in your 10th house of career and reputation. If tension at work has been building, this day could bring a challenging conversation with a boss. This full moon is occurring in the most public part of your chart, so this could also be a bigger discussion that’s been building for some time with a family member or someone close to you. Either way, it is healthy to experience rage and anger, and you deserve to stand up for yourself.

Your full moon self-care practice: Try some breathing exercises today. Connecting with the stability of your breath can bring you back into your body and give you a more level head as you navigate any challenging conversations.

Libra

News or information learned today can feel like it stings, Libra. The full moon is sitting close with Mars, the planet of severing, and it activates your ninth house of learning, wisdom, publishing, and travel. A jarring piece of information may shift your perspective. If you’re in school or taking a course of study, you may meet a moment of frustration. Explore your feelings, but don’t make any rash decisions under these moonbeams.

Your full moon self-care practice: Use the written word to process your feelings. Grab a pen and paper and just vent your frustrations out onto the paper. Burn the paper once you’re done.

Scorpio

A story from your past that you’d rather not address could re-enter your orbit as the full moon illuminates your eighth house of the inner psyche, fears, anxieties, debts, and transformation. On a personal level, you may be pushed to confront it. Be compassionate with past versions of yourself who were doing the best they could with the tools they had at the time.

Your full moon self-care practice: Try out a guided meditation that focuses on your inner child. If you’re sorting through old stories and versions of yourself, reconnecting with a past version of you can be incredibly helpful and healing.

Sagittarius

The full moon activates your seventh house of relationships, contracts, and one-on-one connections. If you’ve been glossing over any grievances you have with your partner, this full moon invites you to have those difficult conversations. If your relationship is on a cracked foundation, this full moon will test it. If you’re doing well, this could also mark a more challenging period in your partner’s life; perhaps they’re dealing with something more intense at work or with their family.

Your full moon self-care practice: If you’ve been feeling like your relationship is off balance, make a pro and con list. What’s working, and what needs addressing? Don’t be afraid to name these with your partner to gain clarity on the future of your union.

Capricorn

Have you been pushing yourself too hard, Capricorn? The full moon lands in your sixth house of daily habits, routine, and health. If you’ve been overworking, your health could take a hit. This full moon reminds you that your body truly needs rest. If you’ve been working hard toward a project, this could also mark a milestone in your progress. With the moon so close to Mars, the planet of severing, this is an aligned time to cut out unsupportive habits and create a new routine.

Your full moon self-care practice: Resting and recharging of any kind are encouraged. So, don’t be afraid to take a cat nap. Nourishing your physical, mental, and spiritual sides is so important.

Aquarius

Creativity and passion are in the air as the full moon moves through your fifth house of pleasure, joy, and romance. If you’ve been sorting through a situation-ship, this full moon could mark a significant conversation and turning point. You may feel more inspired than normal to pour your heart and feelings into some of your creative projects. This is also a powerful time to reinvest in some of your hobbies and activities that truly bring you joy.

Your full moon self-care practice: Follow your pleasure today—whether that means going on a hike in nature, taking a break to read a book, or painting. Do something that activates the creative and curious sides of your brain and brings instant satisfaction.

Pisces

What’s going on behind closed doors, Pisces? This full moon activates a very private part of your chart as it moves through your fourth house of home, family, privacy, the past, and your foundation. This could mark the end of a living arrangement. You may also be addressing some pain or hurt from the past caused by family. The energy is tense, but there is an opportunity to heal and release these old stories through conversation.

Your full moon self-care practice: Decluttering an area of your house is a wonderful exercise to release any built-up tension. As you free up space physically, you’re creating more space within.
