Just in time for the holiday season, the full moon in Gemini ushers in good vibes for connecting with family and friends. The buzzing social-butterfly energy of the third zodiac will bring you out from under the covers of the Scorpio new moon and inspire spontaneity and curiosity within. Have fun with it and dive deep into the excited energy of this full moon in the sign of Gemini.
Working with the full moon can sometimes have a negative connotation since it’s a time to shed what no longer serves you. But it is in the times of purging that a renewed sense of self is born. So while you survey what needs to go, you can also create this amazing clean slate for new things to grow. Think of the full moon as your harvest, and the new moon as a field of healthy soil waiting for new seeds to be planted.
Communication is key during the Gemini full moon. Not only how we communicate with ourselves, but the patterns of communication we have with others. Do you hold back what you want to express? Are you too forthright and candid with your words and actions? How do you speak to yourself? Oftentimes we take stock of how we communicate externally but rarely check our inner dialog with ourselves. This full moon is a reminder to be gentle with yourself. Avoid using violent words with yourself. When you take care of how you communicate with the person closest to you — your own self — it will reflect in your interactions with others.

Spiritual-Cleansing Limpia Recipe For the Full Moon in Gemini
- Clear quartz, agate, citrine, and tiger’s eye crystals
- Passionflower, lemon balm, lion mane, and lavender herbs
- Rosemary, ginger, and cypress essential oils
- Florida Water
- Palo santo
- Sea salt
- Yellow or orange candle
- Lily of the valley or lavender flowers
1. Let’s begin by spiritually cleansing the space with sage and palo santo smoke. Start with burning sage and watching as the smoke fills your space. Open up the windows and allow the flow of energy to dance around your space before it exits, carrying any negativity and stagnant energy away. Follow that with palo santo, and set your intention as you do so.
2. Next, create a full-moon-in-Gemini altar by finding a nice spot to place your candle, a vase with flowers, and the crystals you choose to use. Save some of the flowers for your limpia. You can light the candle after saying a prayer or simply speak your intentions out loud.
3. As your altar activates the Gemini-full-moon energy in your space, you can begin preparing your limpia by placing a pot of water on the stovetop and bringing it to a gentle boil.
4. Add a few handfuls of herbs to the water and lower it to a simmer for 10 to 15 minutes. As your herbs simmer, play music, dance, sing, pray, and uplift the energy in your space. Remember, Gemini loves to socialize and laugh, so align yourself with that vibe and let go.
5. Remove the pot from the heat and drain it. Set the bowl of herb-infused water aside and add 1/2 cup of sea salt, mixing it in until it fully dissolves.
6. Allow the water to cool to a temperature you like and add a few splashes of Florida Water and several drops of essential oils. Mix in with your hands and give thanks for the lessons being ushered in under this full moon.
7. Cover the top of the sacred ritual water with flower petals.
8. Adorn yourself with clothing that makes you feel luxurious, like a silk robe or nothing at all.
9. Carry your limpia to your shower. When you are ready, gently pour it over your body.
10. As the water flows down your body, imagine it washing away everything you need to shed, leaving a shiny, clean slate for newness behind.
11. Exit your shower feeling refreshed and renewed, and journal about anything that comes up. Remember to communicate with yourself in a loving and encouraging tone, and send those good vibes out to the world around you, too.
