Happy Full Moon in Gemini!
I hope everyone is doing well! The full moon energies have felt intense; I've been feeling off and in a funk since around the full moon; granted, I don't know if those are my feelings or if I'm picking up on the collective. My mom's been freaking out about basically everything, my brother has been incredibly anger (the slightest thing can trigger him and set him off), and my friends have been dealing with their own things, too. Hopefully, things have been calmer for you because I've really been in the thick of it. If you want to learn more about the recent full moon, feel free to check out the videos below!
My dream recall was really fuzzy when I woke up on Monday morning. I was tempted to fall back asleep, especially since I woke up before my alarm, but I wasn't able to despite being sleepy and struggling to fall asleep the previous night. Specific details remained elusive, so I wasn't really sure what happened in the dream realm.
I was incredibly tempted to go back to sleep on Tuesday morning because I was extra cozy and sleepy. My dream recall was a bit fuzzy, but from what I could remember I was at a store. I had some Pokémon cards, and I found this Nightmare Before Christmas clock that was on super clearance for $2.19. It was pretty cool looking. There was something about a baby and meeting people in the food section after getting something from the car. Pretty sure more happened, but that's all I could remember. There was also a bunch of thick fog when I got up to take the boys to school.
I was quite tempted to go back to sleep Wednesday morning and was quite cozy. My dream recollection was quite hazy, and specific details remained a mystery. I was tempted to go back to sleep on Thursday morning, feeling extra warm and snug, and my dream recall was a little fuzzy. I knew I had been hanging out with April, though. We had gone a few place, and a park seemed to be one of them. We had been walking around at one point, and we passed Caleb's dad's house. Caleb/his dad had a new, large dog, and it forced its way outside, starting to race around the neighborhood. It followed us, and Caleb drove by; we called out to him about his dog, and he came to get it. More probably happened, but that's all I could remember once I woke up.
My dream recall was fairly fuzzy when I woke up Friday morning, but I seemed to be at a grocery store. The Teen Titans theme song started playing, and I sang along, feeling the hype. Once the song ended there was a major party vibe, as the theme song had apparently acted as a countdown. A bunch of people were filling the store, and it seemed to be an anime convention. It got rather crowded, too. Some peppy music started playing, and it reminded me of the music for the dancing ludicolo in Pokémon Colosseum. I heard, "Who's that Pokémon?" and people started crowding around this one aisle. The crowd answered, "It's Sonic!" as someone cosplaying as Sonic led a conga line down the aisle. It was apparently a joke/game, to test the crowd's knowledge on different franchises. They seemed to be getting ready for the next round of guessing when I woke up.
My dream recall was pretty muddled when I woke up on Saturday morning; it had been all over the place. I was with the boys I babysit at one point, and we were apparently going to Disney. One of the boys got really tense for some reason, and we ended up stopping by their house. Their kitchen sink had some new attachment; rather than a water-sprayer, it now had some kind of vacuum hose. There was something about having a massive hole in one of my socks that was basically the size of my entire heel at one point, too. The next thing I could remember was being at some mall. I ended up helping these two little kids. One of them was apparently the daughter of one of the guys from the soap opera my mom watches (his name is Valentine), and apparently the other was his friend turned into a kid. I was trying to help him, but he didn't want help; then the police showed up and were apparently after him. So, I ended up taking care of them, anyway.
The next thing I could remember was being with April and Iris, walking around. We ended up walking to my cousin's house, and he was cutting the grass, although he stopped like halfway, so part of the grass was super short and the other part was rather long. I think we saw his dog, too. Then there was something about these special swords that were maybe cursed? If you cut yourself with them, most of the time the cut would heal, unless you cut this designated area. Each sword had a section of the body that it would kill people by; unless you used that section, it wouldn't be able to. I think there was like 5 of them, and it seemed to be part of this video game but in real life; you were supposed to beat these bosses without taking damage yourself. It was strange. Some guy showed up and thought they were really cool; I precautioned him about the swords and about how they actually could do damage if you're not careful and unaware of how they work. More might have happened, but that's all I could remember.
I didn't particularly want to get out of bed this morning, so I allowed myself to stay in bed and enjoy relaxing. My dream recall was somewhat fuzzy, but it seemed to focus a lot on video games/anime. The first thing I could remember involved Sesshomaru. He was in a forest that seemed to be near a forest. There was this "man" pretending to be a human to get close to village residents, but in reality he was some kind of demon being, using them for his own devices and pleasure. Sesshomaru was not impressed. The "man" was out in the forest on the prowl for new victims (and very naked), and he had the gall to try and get in Sesshomaru's way. Sesshomaru wasn't having it. I don't think Sesshomaru was feeling any particular way about the village (sort of a you let me live my life and I'll let you live yours kind of vibe), but he wasn't going to tolerate the "man's" interference. The next thing I remembered was being in some kind of video game that involved these lush islands/jungles and dinosaurs. Not really sure what it was about, other than exploring. I'm guessing it was a brontosaurus that wound up falling in the sea and causing an insane tsunami (it nearly covered the entire island and mountain/volcano). There was what seemed to be an active volcano, too. Then there was something about playing Animal Crossing and there being some kind of special event. Tom Nook came down on this fancy helicopter, trying to hype everyone up for this event. Kind of seemed like he was just trying to get everyone excited about commercialism and to buy more stuff. More might have happened, but that's all I could remember.
The boys were excited to be back home and were eager to tell me all about their trip. They loved going to Disney World, riding various rides, getting souvenirs, and even swimming with manatees and whale sharks. Their family loved the warmer weather; it was 80 degrees down in Florida. They even got me some surprise gifts, which was really sweet! They told me all about their trip and how they plan to go to Disney Land in the summer. Plus, their bathroom model seems to be just about finished, and it looks quite stunning. The boys also enjoyed discussing different theories, anime, video games, and holiday movies. They are quite eager for winter break, too.
Tsuki was her normal goofy self; the colder weather definitely chilled her out some, though. She spent a lot more time sleeping than she normally would. Tsuki enjoyed snuggling with her blanket and getting cozy in her cat house. She also enjoyed taking advantage of the air vent pumping out warm air by the steps. Tsuki still had her spurts of hyperactive, nuttiness, though, like playing in boxes. She was quite determined to go outside on to the porch (even if it was cold), and she loved watching birds from the windows. Tsuki's such an adorable goof.

I hope December is treating you well and that you're remembering to take time for yourself. The holiday season can be quite hectic for many people, but just because you have a long to-do list doesn't mean you don't deserve some self-care, fun, and relaxation. If you prioritize your well-being, you'll actually perform better for your to-do list tasks, so it's vital that you rest, eat well, and enjoy yourself. Don't put yourself on the backburner; you're worthy and deserving of a happy and fulfilling life. There's no need to be a martyr for everyone else in your life; you matter just as much as they do. Take care, live well, and be gentle with yourself. You're doing the best you can, and you're a wonderful soul! Have a wonderful rest of 2022, and stay blessed with love and light~
