The Gemini full moon on December 18, 2021 is very lucky because of a harmonious aspect to Jupiter. So the spiritual meaning of full moon December 2021 astrology is taking advantage of opportunities to grow materialy and spiritually.
However, the December 2021 full moon also makes a tense aspect to Venus and Pluto. This can highlight power imbalances in love relationships and also cause financial stress. Thankfully, Jupiter is the stronger influence and can help you resolve such problems and find good luck and happiness, especially with love and money.
Full Moon December 2021 Astrology
The December 18 full moon at 27°28′ Gemini makes planetary aspects to Venus, Jupiter, and Pluto. The strongest of these aspects is the blue trine to Jupiter, the most fortunate aspect, and the most fortunate planet. So this definitely is a lucky new moon.
The green quincunx aspects to Venus and Pluto are not as strong but there are still important for two reasons. Firstly, Venus and Pluto are conjunct. Secondly, Venus is stationary, and turns retorgrade only six hours after the new moon.
Full Moon Meaning
Sun opposite Moon brings your home, family, and intimate relationships into sharper focus for the following two weeks of this moon phase. Opposing forces such as work versus home, or what you need versus what you want, create inner tension and external pressures. This can lead to conflict and crises that drain your energy.
The lunar qualities of emotions and instincts reach their peak at a full moon. So use your increased emotional strength and intuition to overcome any relationship challenges. Subconscious awareness allows for an impartial and balanced look at your personal relationships. You will clearly see any relationship dynamics or negative feelings causing disharmony.
Jupiter for Good Fortune
Full Moon trine Jupiter brings optimism, good luck, prosperity and happiness. There will be opportunities for material and spiritual growth to make you healthier, richer and wiser. This is a good full moon for legal matters, investing, starting or growing a business, and public relations.
It will be easier to share your feelings with others. Relationships and socializing will benefit from greater openness and honesty. Mutual respect and understanding can lead to very successful intimate relationships and business partnerships.
Infectious goodwill and generosity make this a good full moon for joining groups, donating to charities, and promoting worthy causes. It is also good for seeking favors and attracting support. You can expand your horizons through higher education, long-distance travel and spirituality.
Venus for Love
Full Moon quincunx Venus increases your need for love and affection. However, relationship tension is possible, especially if there is an imbalance involving emotional support and love; the amount of love received is not the same as the amount given. Such relationship issues may be a recurring problem with a continual build-up then release of tension. Even if you are single you may still experience an internal imbalance involving self-love and how you feel about yourself.
Full moon quincunx Pluto can increase power and control imbalances in intimate relationships. Possessiveness, guilt-tripping, jealousy, secrets, or abuse could escalate matters to a tipping point. Such a relationship must evolve through counseling or power-sharing, or it must end. Intense emotions, fear and anxiety can also get out of control and lead to destructive and uncontrolled behavior. Sharing your feeling with a friend, counseling or spiritual practices will help avoid a crisis.
Venus conjunct Pluto dramatically increases your need for love and affection. You want to experience companionship at a deeper, more intense level. Magnetic attraction pulls people together at the subconscious level. Instant attraction or infatuation could lead to a new romance. But increased powers of attraction can lead to the misuse of power. Manipulation or abuse could lead to a relationship crisis. Compulsive spending and financial scams must be avoided.
Venus retrograde is generally a fated and sometimes challenging time in your love life. Difficulty giving and receiving love and affection can lead to relationship problems. Or a destiny encounter could lead to a new karmic relationship. The conjunction with Pluto brings the risk of a relationship crisis or a financial crisis. The key to growth and good fortune with love and money is to use your power wisely.
Full Moon December 2021 is at the end of the Sign of Gemini. But as the star map below shows, it is actually between Constellations Taurus and Gemini. This discrepancy is due to the precession of the equinoxes. It has moved the Sun Signs almost a whole Sign out of alignment with the Constellations from which they were named over 2000 years ago.
As the list below shows, the new moon is techincally in Taurus Constellation. Tianguan is in the Southern Horn of the Bull. But this is not the strongest stellar influence on the new moon. That honor goes to the Red Giant Betelgeuse. Polaris is closer to the Moon but is is not as bright as Betelgeuse and is much further from the ecliptic.
- 25♊05 – Zeta Tauri, Tianguan (Al Hecka)
- 27♊28 – Full Moon
- 28♊53 – Alpha Ursae Minoris, Polaris
- 29♊03 – Alpha Orionis, Betelgeuse
The Red Giant
Fixed star Betelgeuse gives martial honor, preferment and wealth.  War and carnage are presaged by Betelgeuse.  Betelgeuse never fails to reveal immense strength in a horoscope. How that serves or fates the person in question depends on how he uses his strength. Nothing happens by halves with this great star. 
With Moon: Active mind, strong will, turbulent, rebellious under restraint, military success but suffering through quarrels with superiors, the likelihood of great power, honor and wealth. 
Constellation Orion is said to give a strong and dignified nature, self-confidence, inconstancy, arrogance, violence, impiety, prosperity in trade and particularly by voyages or abroad, but danger of treachery and poison. 
The Pole Star
Fixed star Polaris causes much sickness, trouble, loss of fortune, disgrace and great affliction, and may give legacies and inheritances attended by much evil.  It gives spiritual powers to the bearer, who will be highly respected. The Pole Star serves as a guide and indicator. 
With Moon: Hatred of the vulgar, ill-will of women and danger from thieves. 
Constellation Ursa Minor is said to give indifference and improvidence of spirit, and to lead to many troubles.  Astrologically both Bears were said to presage an evil influence. They are particularly injurious as regards to the affairs of nations and kings. 
Full Moon December 2021 Summary
The December 18 Full Moon is a lucky, optimistic, and generous moon phase because it is trine Jupiter. This is supported by the star Betelgeuse which adds great power, honor and wealth.
However, the full moon quincunx the Venus and Pluto may cause relationship tension and financial stress. This is complicated by Venus stationing retrograde six hours after the full moon. And adding to these challenges is the star Polaris which causes sickness, trouble, loss of fortune, and disgrace.
Jupiter and Betelgeuse are the stronger influences. They can lessen the challenges posed by Venus, Pluto, and Polaris. They also increase the chance of manifesting the best of the Venus-Pluto conjunction which is intense love and extreme wealth. And if your love life or finances are suffering, Jupiter and Betelgeuse can help you avert a crisis and restore the balance.If the full moon December 2021 astrology directly impacts your horoscope decan you can read about it in your monthly horoscope.
