The full moon on December 6, 2014 is known as Cold Moon, Open Moon or Big Winter Moon. It falls in the opposite sun sign of Gemini. This is the perfect time for spells and rituals to enhance your communications skills. It’s also ideal for renewing contacts, travel and face-to-face meetings.
This Full Moon is about communication, attitude, and our sense of adventure. Something has been building inside of us, and now is the time when the energy of the cosmos demands that we let it out. Over the next two weeks, we will discover what this means for us. For now, we can’t sit on our feelings. We need to express them.
It’s time to express ourselves, and to let things out of our systems. Of course, we might want to exercise some care while doing so, knowing that what is coming out of us is not particularly rational as yet. With the Sun aligned with Mercury around the time of the Full Moon, this can be an especially vocal and idea-filled time.

Throat Chakra & Communication
The throat chakra is where we open to higher wisdom, our higher selves and our souls. It is where we connect to guides and other energetic forces. It is the source of our personal and spiritual pride. A clear, balanced and strong chakra is needed to assert our aspirations and manifest our intentions. People with vital and balanced throat chakras communicate well and are able to articulate their aspirations and speak their truth.
The throat chakra governs the throat, vocal cords, neck and cervical vertebrae, esophagus, thyroid, parathyroids, hypothalamus, mouth, teeth and ears. Throat chakra imbalances can manifest in thyroid
problems, swollen glands, sore throats, speech problems, sinus or ear infections or pain and stiffness in the neck, shoulders and arms.
When people are really stuck or blocked, there is usually a connection to this chakra. People with throat chakra dysfunctions have a difficult time expressing themselves, and this difficulty can manifest in a number of ways. As with all the other chakras, a person’s dysfunction can be inward (yin) or outward (yang).
People with a yin type of throat chakra dysfunction can lock their feelings, thoughts and opinions up inside. They often say that they feel like they aren’t being heard or that they refrain from speaking their minds because they fear the possible repercussions for others or themselves. Shame, doubt and resentment are common sentiments of this type of throat chakra imbalance.
People who have the yang type of throat chakra imbalance tend to have more outward expression. They can be talkers, conversation interrupters and poor listeners. A person with yang throat chakra dysfunction might be called closed minded, doesn’t listen, isn’t open to others views, resists reflection and change and is often times judgemental.
