On December 13, 7:05 P.M. EST we have a Full Moon at 22 degrees of Gemini

According to the Farmer’s Almanac in Native American cultures, which tracked the calendar by the Moons, December’s Full Moon was known as the Full Cold Moon. That is a fitting description because this is the month when the winter cold fastens its grip on our nights and becomes long and dark.

Keep in mind that this Full Moon occurs near the winter solstice—the night with the least amount of daylight. (Note: the winter solstice occurs on Wednesday, December 21 at 5:44 A.M. EST).

During each Full Moon, the question always comes up, “What’s so unique about this particular Full Moon?” Well, from an astrological perspective, each Full Moon falls into one of 12 astrological signs of the zodiac named after a constellation.

This Full Moon Falls Into The Sign Of Gemini

This is a time of super-charged energy with the sun and moon in opposite signs of the Zodiac. The sun is now in Sagittarius. And, the sun represents us—our character and essence. The moon is in Gemini and represents our emotional needs and what is needed in our lives to make us feel emotionally safe and secure.

The sun and moon being in opposite signs now create a yin and yang of solar and lunar harmony. During the previous New Moon, we may have conceived of ideas or become vaguely aware of our desires. In fact, we may have had miraculous epiphanies of the things we wanted to accomplish.


The Gemini Full Moon And Relationships

Here are a few ways that this Gemini Full Moon may bring us a relationship where we hear those special words of love that excite us both in our head and heart.

1. Enjoy a Mental Love Connection With Someone New!

Under the Gemini Moon, we want to socialize and have lots of fun conversations, especially with someone new who is charming, curious and intellectually stimulating. The fastest way to our heart is through our mind.

Any new romantic interest must engage our head if they want to engage the rest of our body. If we can’t stop thinking about their words, we know we’re “in like,” and on the way to “in love.”

We feel the greatest emotional happiness in a relationship with someone who excites our mind, tells us amusing stories and makes us laugh. We are especially attracted to the other person if they are provocative or even naughty with their words—as long as they aren’t crude. We enjoy flirting with them in a light-hearted way, feeling none of the pressures of the typical intense romance.

We are more than content to enjoy the ride and take our time for love to blossom—if it does. If not—no worries because, as they say, “variety is the spice of life.” During the Gemini moon, we are of two minds. One of them is intrigued by romance, while the other mind enjoys being free to meet many potential love interests who could captivate our heart.

Now, it is only important that a new love charm us by being funny and making us laugh with the stories of a raconteur, and a little gossip thrown in for good measure. We are bored with the usual “good looks and no brains.” We crave a social connection with someone who seems intellectually curious, interesting and filled with new experiences that mentally excite us and broaden our mind.

A Gemini Full Moon is made for those who love who love with their ears, not just with their eyes, and who want someone who loves them in that way, too.

2. Enjoy a Mental Love Connection With Someone Established!

If we are feeling bored and intellectually unstimulated by our current relationship, a Gemini Full Moon is just what the doctor ordered. By finding new ways to engage each other mentally, we can re-kindle the passion and romance we once felt for our lover. In more established relationships, we run the risk of becoming too familiar with the other person.

Often the physical excitement we once felt for each other, where hormones and sexual feelings once ran wild, are no longer present. Now we need our mind, not just our body, to be aroused. The Gemini moon is a great time to bring mental excitement and intellectual stimulation into our relationship in ways that rekindle the fun experiences we use to have as well as the sexual cravings that often followed.


This Full Moon motivates us to “mentally” re-discover the desire and passion we once felt so deeply for the relationship we committed to years ago. We have the opportunity to re-establish intimacy with our partner by having more of a verbal connection.

This is the ideal time sit down and have a fun conversation, share a humorous story or just engage in the kind of philosophical discussion that once kept you up talking to each other until the wee hours of the morning.

The Gemini moon jolts us from the boredom we have felt sharing a meal, where our dinner conversation didn’t move much beyond, “please pass the salt.” Now, our mind is awakened to how smart and intelligent our partner is; and, how bright and stimulating we are, too.

As we mentally reconnect with this person we have been intimate with for so long, and we feel a stirring that comes from our head and travels to our loins. We feel a sense of deep intimacy and again want this person as we did so often in the past.

3. How Do The Fires of Intimacy Ignite Under This Mentally Stimulating Moon?

They start with both partners talking about their need and desire to have more conversation and mental connection. Both parties have to commit to making an effort to spend more time talking, socializing and having experiences out in the world that are a source of discussion and intellectual stimulation beyond, “how was your day?”

For some people, it begins with a joint pronouncement of “let’s go to that bookstore in our neighborhood and listen to an interesting author talk about his newest book.” Or, “let’s go to the theater tonight and see the new foreign film that’s opening. Then, we can have dinner afterward and talk about what we thought of it.”

After that dinner, this is the Full Moon to go home, light a fire, burn some candles, turn on some music and talk about some of the experiences you’ve shared together. Your conversation may bring you to a place where the words you hear and speak lead to a smile—that lead to a kiss—that lead to the words you have always wanted to hear, “I love you!”
