Every month, we are given a chance by The Universe to reflect upon ourselves. Not to scare you or anything, but this week is the perfect time to start getting your shit together. Just like the usual schedule, after a New Moon in Sagittarius last November, we'll be met with a Full Moon on December 14th, 2016 to check our monthly progress. Don't be scared. Everything's going to be fine!
     

 
Meet the Full Moon in Gemini: your ultimate secret weapon to win everybody's heart this week. When the Moon shimmies to Gemini this week, our mind is bursting with ideas and our lips feels loose, ready to start a new convo. We can’t wait to meet someone new and fill their heads with wonders. Just like a friendly drunken neighbor, we’ll crave for intellectual stimulation, and we are excited to talk to new acquaintances about our new ideas. Things that sounds puzzling before (like why girls are now using a silicone bra pad as a makeup sponge), will now start to make more sense to you.

You will be excited to get your hands on everything too. Gemini is famed for its prowess in multitasking. You'll be inspired to pursue your ideas and dreams, although you know that it would stretch you thin. You'll be like, "Everything sound too good to be true! Maybe I should travel for a year while doing a photography project. Or should I make a travel vlog about the project too? Hmm. I can't choose!" Everything about this Full Moon will sound like a road to fruition for you. It would be a waste not to act upon it, right?
 
(EVERYTHING IS EXCITING OMG)
 
But just like in any other lunation, prepare for trouble. While we are focusing on the Full Moon in Gemini, don't forget that other aspects are happening too as we speak.

One of them is the Mystic Rectangle. This rectangle-like aspect is formed by planets such as the Moon in Gemini, Jupiter in Libra, Sun and Saturn in Sagittarius, and Uranus retrograde in Aries. In Mystic Rectangle, there are two opposing aspects between Sun and Saturn versus Moon, and Jupiter versus Uranus. But the key here is not to try to focus specifically on any of the planets' quality. It's time for you to harness all of their energy at once to support you and everyone around you, although you won't be able to access their full potential. It's like sitting in a buffet restaurant and deciding to try on every menu in a smaller portion rather than finishing a plate of overpriced Nasi Goreng like what my grandma usually does.



The Mystic Rectangle is a stressful situation because the harder you try to advance yourself, the more tangled you are in difficult times. However, it also calls for a new learning for us to reap. This week we shouldn't be too negligent when it comes to making our future plans. The Moon in Gemini wants us to find our point of excitement. We want it fast, and we want it now (partly because we think it was a good idea to boast about it).

But this week teaches us that personal growth is about being patient and understanding that we still have a lot to learn. You can be filled with ideas and optimism, but you have to start listening to your senses and make a wise decision for yourself. Walk your path carefully, or you'll fall into the same trap. Don't worry, you'll get there.

Read below to see the tips to enjoy the Full Moon in Gemini’s optimistic energy based on your star sign.

Sagittarius (Nov 22 - Dec 21)
Knight of Swords

Why do things alone if you can get a little bit of help from your friends? As a Sagittarius, your dream has always been big and seemingly unattainable for other signs. You always want the best for yourself, even if that means you have to work harder than you should. But the Tarotscope this week is here to remind you that nothing is impossible if you choose to work with the right people to attain your dream, rather than focusing on getting there yourself. Learn as much as you can from other people’s experience, get yourself a mentor, or have a partner to help you with your decision making. Nothing is impossible if you keep your eyes on the prize with others cheering you from the side.

You should listen to:
Able - Pharrell

Capricorn (Dec 22 - Jan 19)
The Hierophant

Before you make a rash decision, listen to your loved ones. They may sound like they don't know anything about what you do. Or sound too judgmental for your taste. But even in the smallest disagreement, you'll find that there's always something to learn from everyone. Pay attention to them, and make a wise decision once you have the answer.

Aquarius (Jan 20 - Feb 18)
Five of Disks - Worry

You're a unique being, Aquarius. You will always feel like you're out of place. However, you shouldn't let the world get the best of you because of that. We need more people like you here, and we'll be happy if you stay and decide to try to give it a second chance. Life can be shitty sometimes, but it will always reward the brave and the bold.

Pisces (Feb 19 - Mar 20)
The Universe

Don't fight it, Pisces. Discomfort exists to make us grow from a painful experience. The Universe always has plans for all of us. If things aren't meant to be, it means we have to pivot. Use this opportunity to switch between ideas and to figure out the root of your hardship. It might be something that exists in plain sight all along.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 19)
The Moon

Love without a great wonder is a waste of time. Because love and longing are two inseparable emotions, trying to choose one over another will only cause you more distress. Have faith, Aries. They will not go far or leave you behind. Understand that feeling takes time to process, the length of which may vary depending on the person.

Taurus (Apr 20 - May 20)
The Star

Not sure if it's a good idea for you this week to seize all the opportunity you see in front of you. Like a kid that goes inside her first candy store, all you want is an a little taste of everything. Instead of indulging in all of them, weigh in your option and see which one is feasible for you. Don't worry. You wouldn't miss out on anything. :)

Gemini (May 21 - Jun 20)
Five of Wands - Strife

Book a plane ticket today and enjoy the opportunity to broad your experience... spontaneously! This week is the time for you to travel, meet someone new, and to let your hair down for once. Pay no mind to anyone who doesn't enjoy a good conversation over a bottle of beer by the beach, because a long-overdue break is all you need. Have fun!

Cancer (Jun 21 - Jul 22)
Knight of Cups

With enough perseverance and loyalty, your dream goal is starting to actualize. It's a long progress and a hard-earned one, but you're not the type who quits before you see any progress. If you're ready to wait a little bit longer, keep your eyes on the prize while making your move. Don't forget to trust the Universe when it does its magic for you!

Leo (Jul 23 - Aug 22)
Ace of Swords

When looking for an opportunity in your career, don't look for the one that can make you shine. Look for the one where you can learn to better yourself. What's important here is the learning experience and tangible benefits (like $$$, for instance). Choosing fame and pride over those benefits won't give the satisfaction you crave.

Virgo (Aug 23 - Sep 22)
Ten of Cups - Satiety

This week Virgos should focus more on their physical health. You will be tested by different circumstances, particularly from your career. If you're not careful, you will collapse during critical times, and you may not be able to enjoy the result of your hard work. You can give your best, but always leave at least 10 percent of your energy for yourself.

Libra (Sep 23 - Oct 22)
Four of Cups - Luxury

You know, if you keep on thinking about a problem, you're never going to solve it. Sit on it, or better, sleep on it. Go for a walk, take a break, before you get back to it. Or take a vitamin to help you focus. Let out your inner sloth, Libra! In case you didn't know, your greatest inspiration comes from slacking and having enough nap time at work.

Scorpio (Oct 23 - Nov 21)
Six of Wands - Victory

Scorpios this week are coming to their romantic senses. Woohoo! Guess what’s the best way to win someone’s heart? By wooing them. You know, it’s not a bad idea to put a little more effort into your love life through small, romantic gestures. Ignite the sparks again with thoughtful acts, not gifts. So let's plan your wooing strategy today!
