The Full Moon in Gemini is the only SuperMoon of 2017 which appears larger than usual when near the horizon and relative to objects on the horizon. This full moon is known as the Cold Moon with some cultures.
This Full Moon, with the Sun in Sagittarius, is inclined toward cultural expressions as it relates to self. The Sun and Moon are creating a t-square to Neptune in Pisces. It will be interesting to see what gets pulled out of the hat for this. Neptune stationed for direct motion (ending the retrograde motion) on November 22. The Sun and Moon, forcing pressure from both sides may squeeze out a few more revelations for the day.
Mercury begins retrograde motion today on the 29th (Anaretic) degree of Sagittarius. This could be a mind blowing experience for some of us, as we may be forced into re-evaluation of something that we thought was a done deal. Mercury's retrograde will last until December 23. We should be a little extra careful with our communications, electronic transactions, short distance and long distance travels, and all contracts and legal negotiations. Mercury is sextile to Mars in Libra, conjunct to Saturn in Sagittarius and trine to Uranus retrograde in Aries. This is forming a wedge pattern that blends all the influences together. We may experience a comingling of the retrograde influence with less than tactful interactions with others, or feel skeptical of others who have been less than truthful with us in the past. We need to be aware of who we are dealing with and trust our intuition for the day.
Venus has moved into Sagittarius. This can add a romantic ideal to our relationships, which can swing to the positive side if we keep our expectations grounded. If we flit through impulsive ideals, it may not work out as thought.
With Mars in Libra, sextile to Saturn (and Mercury retrograde) we may feel resilient enough to start over with a new concept or career path. Mars is in the third decan at a critical degree, making it more powerful than ever. We need to keep our tempers in check.
For the next couple of weeks, we are transitioning into Jupiter's transit in Scorpio while Saturn is moving into the anaretic degree of Sagittarius. Saturn will ingress Capricorn on the solstice. Jupiter is trine to Neptune in Pisces. We are more intuitive than usual and we may, feel luckier, than usual. Be cautious with money, as it can slip through our fingers quicker than we realize during the holidays, particularly during this transit. Saturn is trine to Uranus in Aries, helping us to wrap up a few things and, although less than focused, we feel more motivated to try activities that we would normally avoid.
This full moon chart is not balanced. There are more masculine receptive placement than usual, only one earth element placement, and one fixed quality placement but a lot of mutable placements. We are likely to feel off-kilter but not be able to put our finger in the reason for it. One simple solution is to slow down and regroup. We may feel as though it is not our problem, choosing to blame others for our situation. That solution is not likely to go well with others, since they too will feel as though our problems are not their problems. Save face and don't point fingers.
Lunar Living is having a sale on reports until the middle of December. The Jupiter in Scorpio report, as well as the Saturn in Capricorn report are both marked down. A few other reports are on sale, as well.

If one burrows deep enough, one may come out on the other side.
