The New Moon In Gemini
Ambivalence becomes an energizing experience inspiring us to get organized. Empowering us to transmit and receive information. Becoming the messenger. The purveyor of communications.
Such is the effective use of the energy of the New Moon In Gemini.
Although not really the most comfortable, soothing, nurturing Zodiac sign for the Moon to be moving through, I suggest that through the practice of being fully present using the tools of mindful meditation and the mercy of loving kindness, the scintillating sparkling wings of Mercury can brighten, lighten and even add some zing to your life.
Gemini, being an air and mind oriented sign ruled by the planet Mercury stimulates our journey by arousing our curiosity.
It triggers our hunger to seek the gleaning of knowledge and information. Assorted trivia and anecdotes, to be stored away. To be called upon at some later date.
Gemini ruled by the planet Mercury, is about the function of listening to and transmitting information, knowledge, fictitious stories and tales of adventures. Relating via communication. To discern information in order to register the data and file it away. The motivation and intention is to pass it on to others or to refer to it for oneself.
The symbol of Gemini is The Twins.
The essence and nature of duality.
This experience of duality serves to guide us towards a repertoire of references that upholds the constructs which orientates us to our experience of the world and our relationship to it. In this regard, the Twins can be seen as two strong pillars holding up the weight of the Temple for the purpose and necessity of keeping together the structure itself. The Temple here being used as a metaphor for the mind. The mind which when aligned in a healthy way serves as the navigational go-between from our Soul to our brain, which is then organized by our ego, in the psychological sense of the word.
Gemini Moon ambassadors in the beginning cycle of Gemini which ushers in a busy time, resplendent with ample social and traveling opportunities.
However do keep in mind that this Moon In Gemini moment accentuates the significant basic need to listen, respond and to be fully present and aware.
One of the important teachings of Gemini and Mercury is to focus.
Begin by becoming aware of your breath.
Then breathing in become aware of what your heart desires.
Exhale deeply, allowing the flow of your breath to transmit the feeling of this desire to your mind, the Mercurial part of your psyche.
Become aware of receiving a thought, an image or just some kind of felt sense which your mind as the messenger is beginning to transmit to you.
Reflect on it so you can translate it.
Then from there you move forward.
Gemini encourages you to focus, focus, focus…and to keep on!
