The Full Moon in December is known by many names depending on the cultural background, Long Nights Moon and Oak Moon are just two of them. [See The Moon for more information]
The Full Moon in Gemini is excellent for divination, rituals to seek inspiration, or brainstorming. You could incorporate all three by using bibliomancy. Take a book about the subject you wish to explore. Open it at random and, without looking, point on the page. Read the sentence your finger landed on. Does the passage give you any new ideas or insights? Repeat 3 or 4 times, eityher with the same book, or different books on the same subject. Meditate on the sentences you have read.
Another way to seek ideas is to invoke the Muses. The 9 daughters of Zeus and Mnemosyne were each attributed to a different art: epic and heroic poetry, music, lyric and erotic poetry, history, tragedy, sacred poetry and geometry, dance, comedy, and astronomy and astrology.
Choose the Muse most relevant to your field. Prepare an altar with symbols of your art or other specialty. Include a picture of the Muses, or your Muse, if you can. Cast a cricle, then ask for help and inspiration. Promise to pursue your art faithfully. Do some artistic work, spend a little time in circle writing, drawing, singing, dancing, or practicing your instrument. –Magenta Griffith
