Dec 3rd 2017 - Gemini Full Moon & Mercury Retrograde in Sagittarius

If you've been experiencing an over active mind, strange(r) thoughts and restlessness, it may be the waxing Full Moon's influence. This Super Full Moon' in Gemini (11 degrees) may be felt for two weeks before and after 3rd - emotions may run higher and in the air sign of Gemini, erratic thoughts and excess nervous energy are possible. Full Moon in Gemini is sociable and likes to be busy but instead you may feel like you're running around in multiple directions with lots to do, but not achieving much with many delays and set backs. Don't be hard on yourself, it's a challenging time, especially with Mercury turning Retrograde on 3rd in Sagittarius. 

The usual generalities apply for Full Moons (often a time of release and revelations) and Mercury Retrograde (increased technological problems, worse traffic delays, machinery breakdowns, miscommunications, bumping into people from the past, past memories rising) but this combination is a bit different to the norm. 

This Super Full Moon in Gemini square Neptune may bring strange thoughts with dreamy, confused feelings, you may simply feel out of sorts. With the Sagittarius Sun conjunct Mercury Retrograde conjunct Saturn, pessimistic thoughts turn serious and Gemini's normal high energy, could feel dampened. Don't worry just being aware of this potential Neptunian distortion of reality, misperceptions or over idealism (for some) could help during this time; reminding us that things may not be as the seem. So delay making important decisions, if possible, particularly with Jupiter trine Neptune, as the magical illusion or fantasy may burst. Also be aware the shadow side of Gemini energy is the trickster (Magician reversed card in the Tarot). So take extra care during the next few weeks, not to be gullible and falsely led by deceptions and lies. Some people may try to take advantage of you. Read the small print (especially carefully during the Mercury Retrograde period) and ask the right questions. Or if you're feeling too fuzzy minded or dazzled, simply don't say yes, put things on hold until Mercury turns direct on 23rd. In fact, better to wait til after 28th January as the post Retrograde Shadow from 23rd - 28th may be experienced even more strongly. 

Mercury Retrograde is in Sagittarius a fiery, optimistic, philosophical, freedom loving, future orientated sign but conjunct Saturn and with the Full Moon in Gemini, cold, harsh truths may arise, unpleasant facts (pr lies) discovered or a bubble may be burst during December. People may be harsh with their words or 'facts' but they may regret what they say or what they've done after Mercury turns direct. Beyond the Super Full Moon's influence Mercury Retrograde in Sagittarius is a retrospective time to review our philosophies, ideals and where we may wish to venture in the bigger future. 

On the plus side Mercury Retrograde is a great time to slow down, to re visit thoughts, re write, re plan, re do and to generally reflect. December 10th's Uranus trine Mercury could inject some excitement and awakening into our previous serious thoughts and December' 18th's New Moon in Sagittarius trine Uranus could be great for problem solving and innovative ideas.
