‘Kayso, before I get on with my dream I would like to preface by saying that tonight is December’s Full Moon and the last Full Moon of 2022. It occurs at 8:08pm here in California in the sign of Gemini (communication/intellect) and is conjunct Mars (passion/drive)- which is currently in Retrograde.
A conjunction occurs when two planets are within 8° of each other. Conjunctions usually indicate areas that will show good results.
On this particular Full Moon Darkstar has this to say:
“Moon conjunction Mars in the sky can indicate a time when people are fierce about protecting their family or homeland. It is an energy of defence, but also one when the collective’s feelings erupt easily into rage. Verbal violence is possible, so domestic bliss is unlikely. This conjunction is great for firefighters as they will react speedily and instinctively. Since Mars is retrograde currently this particular conjunction will have a more simmering energy. Words will be used rather than actions to protect. So look out for intellectual battles.”
Retrograde Meaning in Astrology
Simply by being contrary to the normal [forward] flow, retrograde motion represents an exception, or perhaps even a challenge, to this sense of normalcy. But since retrograde planets depart from the main highway altogether, perhaps it’s more appropriate to think of them as seekers or explorers who travel the celestial byways in search of something not available on the main highway…Since retrograde motion is so radically different than the norm, it’s not a surprise that many people often experience it as disruptive. The question, then, is whether disruption is in and of itself a bad thing.
Indeed. Full Moons are all about closure and is the perfect time for self-Reflection and Release. With today’s Full Moon conjunct Mars Retrograde we can add Relinquish. (It’s all about the R’s…) Let go of expectation, outcomes, or things you have no control over. Surrender yourself to the Universe, trusting that it always has your best intentions at heart.
One more thing. I’ve written before about how New Moons make me feel out of sorts but Full Moons have the OPPOSITE effect. Instead of draining me, Full Moons zap me with high-voltage, positive energy. Being that I’m an Aries (ruled by Mars) and tonight’s moon is being “kissed” by the Red Planet, this may account for the extra exuberancy I’m experiencing – as you will see…
This dream took place last night.
Although I found myself cavorting (?) through different scenes and situations, the focus of the dream was on what I was wearing and how wonderful I felt wearing it: A mid-calf, black leather “swing” skirt. (Think 50s-style poodle skirt.) It was made out of leather so thin that it moved airily around me. On one side of the front was painted a Día de los Muertos-style face of a beautiful woman. At one point I realized my footwear was out-of-place (tan suede hiking boots) and POOF they changed into a pair of black patent pumps. Ah, much better. I felt beautiful, free, and magickal in that skirt!
I really didn’t bother looking into the meaning of this dream as I awoke with a song in my heart. Being that I can barely carry a tune, it’s a good thing I kept the song to myself. LOL. Nevertheless, it was a feel-good dream if there ever was one. (Now the question is: Where can I get a skirt like the one I wore? Probably not Amazon. Maybe Etsy?)
