The very last supermoon of 2017 is coming on the eve of Dec. 3, and even though it's going to be big and bright, the effects of it are going to be even bigger — horoscope-wise. That in mind, you're going to want to know what a supermoon means for your sign — because the December full supermoon is in Gemini, and as a result, it's hosting a heck of celestial event. And no matter what sign you are — this doesn't just affect Geminis! — you're going to feel an intense shift in the next few days, so you'll want to know what to expect and how to deal with it. Spoiler alert: you'll definitely be feeling a bit extra over the next few weeks. But don't worry: it will wane.

Also known as "The Full Cold Moon" or the "Long Night Moon," this moon's Native American nickname is super descriptive: The moon will be full, and considering it's December, it'll probably be cold outside. Since it rises in one of the coldest months of the year during one of the longest nights of the year, this moon is intense even when it's not super — but the fact that it is, really makes things a bit more powerful. During the night of Dec. 3, the Earth will be as close to the moon as it can get, making the moon appear larger and lighter that usual. When this happens, it's called a supermoon.

The mere sight of the moon will evoke might have a universal visceral reaction, but the way that it affects each astrological sign will be totally different for each sign. Here's are some possible effects for you to anticipate, based on your sign.  

Aries

Giphy

Bravery is kind of your thing, especially when it comes to matters of the heart. So if there's something you've been thinking about doing, be it a crush you want to pursue, a relationship you want to end, or a risk you want to take, around Dec. 3, that courage is going to kick in — so get ready for change.

Taurus

Giphy

Expect your intuition to become impossible to ignore. If you've had a gut feeling that someone has been deceiving you, that something you're involved with is no longer serving you, or that something isn't as it seems, you're going to pursue action this month. Just make sure you do everything with maturity and grace.

Gemini

Giphy

Both in your personal and professional life, you might have noticed a few setbacks lately — but try to find patience. In the first half of this month, you might find it difficult to get people to understand your vision and help you realize your ambitions. Try to remember that not everyone is on the same page, and having a moody meltdown when you don't get what you want is only going to make things more difficult for you. The second half of the month is going to be easier for you to navigate, but only if you don't burn bridges in the beginning of of the month.

Cancer

Giphy

You have been busting your ass for the last few months, and you're officially on a one way path to success. The supermoon is going to give you a lot of energy, so ride it — just make sure you stay humble and focused. The supermoon isn't going to take away a promotion you deserve, but if you're not gracious, the people around you might have trouble being supportive.

Leo

Giphy

You might be feeling more sensitive than usual this month. And the supermoon will only intensify those feelings and make it hard for you to put your finger on what it is that's bothering you. Instead of royally confusing the people around you, or risking unnecessary drama, you might want to schedule some me time. Take yourself hiking, spend a weekend at home, or unplug for a while. These feelings will pass, but if you cause destruction along the way, that might take longer to clean up. Just take care of yourself, Leo.

Virgo

Giphy

Your penchant for organization is greatly challenged during the chaotic holiday months. And the supermoon's intensity is only going to kick your need for order into high gear. Try to do as much organizing in the beginning of the month, to avoid mayhem. Get your gifts early, map out your holiday party calendar and do your best to respect the fact that not everyone can approach the holidays with a clear and organized mindset. Schedule some extra meditation this month, and do your best to take it easy on your friends who might not be operating on the same highly capable wavelength as you are.

Libra

Giphy

You have a way of navigating your life that works so well for you. Your internal sense of justice always serves you and guides you to the best choices for you. But the supermoon is going to throw off your navigation in the beginning of the month, so try not to have a meltdown. The system's not broken, the universe is just in flux. So be patient and try to do things differently — by mid-month, you'll be back to relying on your own devices.

Scorpio

Giphy

The supermoon is going to make December a month for you to remember. All of the things that you've been curious about in the last year are going to come to a head and will become impossible to ignore. Whether it's travel, a new relationship, a new job, or a new lifestyle, you're going to find the mojo to go after it in the next few days.

Sagittarius

Giphy

The supermoon is going to make you rethink the way you do things, and it's a good idea to spend some time thinking about the way you do things. Is your route to work really the most direct? Are you making a relationship in your life more complicated than it needs to be? Is there a better way to make time for your friends? You might find that the intense lunar energy guides you towards a few simple solutions that you didn't know you needed.

Capricorn

Giphy

With the year coming to an end, you're becoming incredibly overwhelmed by all of the things you want to do. The supermoon is going to make you feel like you're on an incline and each step is harder than the last. Try to stay positive, you're going to get everything done, but only if you don't let the stress of it all get the best of you. You're a task-accomplishing warrior, you're going to achieve your goals — so long as you remember to breathe.

Aquarius

Giphy

Do not let the supermoon immobilize you. In the next few days, you'll be feeling a bit more contemplative than usual — but don't let that keep you from making decisions. If you find yourself unable to see a clear path for yourself this month, go back to basics and map things out on paper. List the pros and cons of each choice and do the math. You still have the power to make choices!

Pisces

Giphy

This month is going to be a blast for you. Your energy is going to be off the wall, and you'll find yourself making the time for all the holiday parties and after work social hours. Just make sure that you're not too reckless with your energy, otherwise you'll find yourself seriously tapped out in January. Enjoy the drive, but make sure to pace yourself and stay on top of your responsibilities. All that glitters is not gold.
