As we are getting closer to the end of this year, you might be feeling mixed emotions and energy shifts. This usually does happen to most people as we close another year, but this November 23rd we also have a full moon in Gemini which is bound to stir some things up. Firstly full moons occur when the sun and the moon are opposite one another, so that already creates some tension. The sun is vibrant and light and it represents the characteristics of being social, curious, expressive, a doer, motivated and determined. The moon however is subtler, it represents the more introverted aspects of the self, the self-reflection, thinking and feeling. So when these are opposing, we can feel in a conundrum about what is actually going on inside, about how we want to move forward, or which plans we want to pursue etc. This particular full moon is in the sign of Gemini, which is all about duality and reaching a state of balance. Gemini is an air sign, energetic and dynamic. It can move quickly and change directions at any point. So this week before and during this full moon, it’s best to work on self-control, thinking before speaking or taking action, and taking your time before you commit to anything.
Yoga is a wonderful way to bring harmony in the body and create balance between the mental, physical and emotional self. Here are some yoga asanas to practice during this full moon.
