With the season of Gemini comes the time of the pollinators. Those that fly, hum, buzz and chirp with delight at the variety of fresh nectars to taste of and behold in natures Queendom. To flirt, play, joke, question, learn and be ever curious are the past-times of this sign.
In a time when our ability to move around is limited, we must look to new ways to engage our Mercurial senses. To feed and nourish them with the variety of inputs they require, to hold to the social responsibility needed at this time for sure, but oh so much more. This lunation asks us to open our Hearts and Minds and unite as one as she reveals new levels of integrity and consciousness within the human community
With Saturn and Pluto aspected by this New Moon more information is coming in that may return us to a perspective of love and understanding through our heart-mind faculties as a species. But this information should be questioned against the bell of truth in the heart and tested by the logic of the mind as Neptune is at play. We may have to give time for the function of this information to become clear- look to the coming Full Moon is Sagittarius for illumination.
For now, La Luna asks that we clean our lenses, wipe our brow and enjoy the company of loved ones safely- and with a watchful eye for the relationship patterns emerging now. Set intentions for the shifting perspectives as they stream in. Where can we communicate with more honesty, integrity and de-personalized perspective? Align yourself to that which you value most and watch as the Universe responds.
Set powerful and meticulous intentions for how you want to re-dream your daily routine, relationships, values, communication and your sacred connection to the All- the Mind. Mercury listens when we open our minds, cleansing and purifying the lenses that we may receive vision true and bright, to live the best lives we can- for ourselves, for others.
To understand our multiplicitous reality requires the skill of Mercury’s home sign Gemini. Mercury is very close to Venus marrying the Heart and the Mind and asking of us the same. To see beauty more clearly as the aim. To remember our ancestors are not to blame- for perhaps they were us, and our children’s children will be again. Remembering that the study of the multiplicity must also contain the truth of oneness.
As Venus’s backwards sparkle into the Sun bodes that relationships be revised, visions and dreams may hold information- but the key is always in the heart. Purify your heart space, allow it to be cleansed with compassion. For now is the time when humanity stands shoulder to shoulder in the great endeavor of building a new Earth. What do you see?
Cities and states around the U.S. are relaxing their rules around Covid lockdown measures. This time has been much like the cocoon phase of the Butterfly’s lifecycle, an animal closely akin to Gemini. Yet, we cannot rely on governmental structures and lawmakers to guide the development of culture any longer. We each must decide what feels truly safe and how best to honor the health of our at-risk loved ones. This require gathering safely in our communities to decide what is best for us, always thinking of the greater whole simultaneously.
The South Node of the Moon has moved into Sag and the North Node into Gemini- old philosophies and religiously held beliefs that have become stale in the new era are ready to dematerialize into the spirit realm for transmutation. It is time to focus on the details, the small thoughts and beliefs, the rudimentary structures of the universe and our perspective of it that create the sacred geometric field through which we gaze into the material realm- and through which we manifest. If you are human, your perspective is valid and your magic is potent.
As we begin to step out into the world more and more, notice how you have changed. How have your values shifted? What is now imperative to your heart’s mission and desires that was not there before? Nurture it. Feed it new information and most importantly have fun. With 4 planets retrograde this is a time for reflection, but Gemini wants to play so try and honor that need as best you can. We are emerging with glistening eyes, bright and shiny and innocent like the child and yet can access the wisdom necessary to keep strong cultural protocol to protect that which matters most to us and cultivate it consciously.
We have all suffered a great loss of our elders and loved ones from this physical plane. While the world is different for many, it is laden with greif for others. Laughter is an ancient medicine, celebrate the lives of those who have passed on during this time together.
Perhaps, as the ancients knew, those that transition from this world are not gone but transformed into a new state into which we can still peer and receive messages, their love enveloping us and guiding us. The collective subconscious is asking to be heard, worked with and remembered once again. Messages may come in plant, bird, insect or animal form.
Remember that your soul is ancient. It knows things that cannot be explained with cognitive faculty alone. But this skill must be tested, scientifically cultivated, through evidence and experience to reveal a new type of sight. To see with the third eye- the inner eye and REALeyes new and ancient magic that has been lying dormant in the Earth for centuries, awaiting our remembering. Clue- the Trinity holds the key.
We are all undergoing a collective initiation that we may not have seen coming, but it is an opportunity for us to rewrite our stories as a species, as families and as individuals. This may be the first time we have lived through something like this, but it is not the first time for humanity. To be human is to know how to live in harmony with the Universe, how to be resilient and adaptable to the new. There are cultural protocols, solutions, lessons to be learned, new information to gather and distill and above all- a great opportunity.
This is the time to honor and cultivate that ancient human sense of knowing that is beyond the artificial limitations placed by modern science upon the brain. Once we break old beliefs, we free up energy to shift our reality. Perhaps as we learn more about how the Heart and mind are meant to function in unison we shall see a new humanity born, or reborn , or both.
May this be a Moon of conscious visioning, of the seeding of the little things that make up the big picture of the world we wish to re-emerge into, a world we can actively co-create together. For the Magic of Mercury is knowing the magic of the Mind. Right now Mercury asks, which flowers will we choose to pollinate?
To the New and Beautiful,
