Gemini New Moon


{You guys, I'm loving Cosmic Collages art!! What do you think?!?!}

Moon + Sun in Gemini

This New Moon is a Supermoon, making it more powerful than usual. We get to work a little harder and will feel the affect a little longer than normal.

Gemini is represented by the twins: the polarities, the subconscious and conscious mind, the dark and the light, the day and the night. Unity and separation, the individual and community, acceptance and rejection and in many places, perceived contradiction. Yet when we really get to know the Gemini archetype: it’s not contradiction, it’s the acceptance of the polarities. And perhaps acceptance isn’t the word to connect you to the essence of this teaching, rather to be able to sit steady and allow for complete presence with your whole heart no matter what life places in front of you. Or maybe it’s the innocence not to judge right and wrong and allow opposing forces to sit next to each other in peace. Or the curiosity to explore it all. The ability to be tender with yourself to hug back in and accept the previously rejected parts of yourself and others. And we are at a time where we are being given many opportunities to practice this.

Gemini is a mutable air sign. Which means it’s changing intellect. It is ruled by Mercury, which is communication, commerce and collaborations. Gemini season and the Gemini moons are times where we check in with our mental health because it rules the mind and because it’s mutable, it’s the transformative powers within mental health states across the human experience. Gemini also rules the nervous system, so tune into what your nervous system is doing and how that’s affecting your mind.

Gemini season is thinking thinking thinking thinking all the different points of view. Are you open to them or in resistance to what you hear?

With the ruling planet of Gemini, Mercury freshly in Cancer, there is a high likelihood that emotions will run high through communication. This degree is giving us strength to stay connected to our Highest and as we navigate this ride. When we masterfully relate to our own truth with a grounded confidence, those external forces don’t have the same grip on them as they do when our seat isn’t so steady. To steady ourselves in the face of challenge, we need to know what are anchors are. Perhaps they are community, meditation, nature, dancing, plant medicines and so much more.

Contemplations to help you decide which practices to do this week:the power of thought and perception of experience on the neuroplasticity of the brain, the breath as a tool to down regulate the nervous system, and utilizing the inner pharmacy of the endocrine system through your feeling states.

Gemini is also the toddler of the zodiac, so behavior is unpredictable and there is a lot to be done with recognizing our own inner child who (sometimes innocently) quietly carries all kinds of wounds, that sneakily infiltrate present moment reality in your perception, reception and reactions to the world around you. We can harness the power that is the final degrees of Cancer through Venus who holds space to nurture ourselves emotionally and acknowledge what is vital and remind ourselves that life is unfolding in a Divine plan and that we can trust the process and that the Highest lessons will unfold as the time ripens (which might not be now). Patience Love. The truth will set you free. Trust that. Stay in your heart and in integrity and you’ll come out alive.

We get drawn back into our hearts and into a more peaceful place with Venus moving in Leo later that same day.

A good practice would be to ground this air element by balancing it with earth and then putting conscious effort into the listening side of the communication equation. Listening includes to those points of view that are different than your own and make space for those POV’s to be true for them, just as your view points are true for you.

Retrograde Saturn is in opposition to Mercury at 6°51 Capricorn (earth) and any time Saturn is involved there is a school of hard knocks on the program. This particular degree tells a story of a satyr sitting at the edge of a pond staring at it’s own reflection. The image of someone half God half Human in a deep contemplation reflecting on their karmic contracts, past behaviors of a time less conscious and continuing the punishment to a point where it’s hard to see the way out. The metaphorical foot that lands on your own head may take a miracle to remove, but that very miracle that removes it is the Highest of High Heart teachings that grant you a miracle if you can figure out how to let them in.

Saturn’s opposition to Mercury also reminds us to stay in our own lane and stay out of your defenses. The competition or opposing forces are no thread to you unless you allow them to derail you from your mission. Channel your focus and attention into your own work and let that be where you shine. You doing you to the best of your ability IS your insurance policy. There’s no need to put down or shun another for the work they are doing. A nod of respect will do as you continue down your path.

It is worthwhile noting that Uranus is sextiling Mercury and trining Saturn. So even though this Saturn / Mercury aspect may create situations that are hard to digest, if you can keep on chewing and stay in the conversation and let all the flavors be tasted, there is great potential for an awakening and something to shift suddenly, even electrically.

The degree this new moon is happening at is 22°44. The Sabien Symbol for 23° (I’ve been taught to round up) is a Tunnel Created by Trees. “Intervention by your our own greater self within the patterns of the personal story. A vision is granted. A way is shown. Yet to follow it means many shatterings. A cosmic future realm – uncompromising and magnificent. Vibrant and cocky. The power of the Crown. The truth that takes you by surprise. So much is opening. All you need is to be there and ask. The expanded “I” aimed directly at you and drawing you through.” ~ Ellias Lonsdale

We are the thinker, the feeler, the experiencer of our own life and that’s who has to navigate it and deal with how we feel: Ourselves. At the end of the day, only we can save ourselves because of the intimate and person nature of our own inner experience. Yet Gemini is social life, acquaintances and community, therefore we get to remember that we can lean into each other for support. Find your people, love them hard and no matter how strong someone seems, give them support and reinforcement that they’re validated and seen. It’s amazing how quickly someone can go from being perfectly balanced and healthy in their mental health and like the flip of a switch with certain information coming into their field / perceptions from others can throw that healthy state into a spiral.

Mars is sitting in Aquarius opposite the North Node in Leo. Most of us can accept that the future is going to be different than it has been. All this fire, this passion that has got your mind swirling is the fuel for what is to come. Let go of everything that doesn’t serve your purpose. This includes ideas, feelings, people, places, things, etc. Purify for the sake of making space and lightness to ready yourself for what is to come. All this thinking can make it hard to dream, but your imagination can surely come back with some juice for the fire that burns inside of you.

Here are some practices and contemplations:

∞ Can you practice the art of self-observation to witness your mind and get to know the patterns that are moving within? (especially since Saturn is sitting opposite Mercury placing defenses on high alert)

∞ Can you become increasingly aware of the mood or tone of your underlying feeling state? Once you have an awareness there – you open the doors to infinite potentials and possibilities to shift that underlying feeling state.

∞ Are you able to see where you are placing your own experience on another? Or unable to hear someone clearly because of your bias?

∞ The truth is, no matter how self aware we are, there will always be bias and projection. The only way we can see the world is through our own lens. If you get to a place where you feel you are exempt from these human conditions, receive that as a red flag to check in with yourself at a deeper level. Even the Dalai Lama has a bias.

∞ On the flip side, are you expecting others to see from your point of education and experience? This is, again, an impossible task as they see the world through their life path and experience and we all have different life curriculums. The more aware you are of this, the less you will suffer when they don’t understand you or play by your rules, while enhancing your ability to listen.

∞ Can you welcome love to flow through you as a filter for life and as a baseline for your words?

∞ Can you hold the shoulders of some of your dearest and look them in the eyes and remind them of their epic nature and just how valuable they are to the world?

I’m not a numerologist, but I can’t help google what all these 2’s and 4’s mean.

The moon happens at 22°44.

22 is a Master Builder number. Masterfully transforming dreams into a prosperous reality. Number 22 is an omen of capability, confidence and discipline. Look at how Gemini season began with a call to dream. Day dream, dream awake, Lucid dream, wake up inside of the dream. It’s one thing to dream and another thing to wake up inside the dream, work with it and be able to transpose the dream across realities. Now as we come to the Gemini New Moon, we are being supported with the energy to take those dreams you’ve been working with and bring them into reality.

44 is a number about business. However, not just any old business, it’s about businesses that benefit many through both the past and the future. This is legitimately what we are being called to do in a slightly different language. We are being asked to dig in and remember why we came, what our Soul’s purpose is, how we are here to serve and contribute to the greater good. To activate our greatest gifts. When we do this and we are truly following our path and purpose, there opens the possibility to create exchange for our gifts and cultivate a conscious business.

Gemini is ruled by Mercury and Mercury is sitting at 2°04 Cancer. Here we see the 2 and 4 again.

2 is the unifier, the one who seeks harmony and looks to end separation and division. It’s a yin energy of the Divine Mother. She is gentle, forgiving and understanding. This is great energy to resolve conflict under (which is helpful because Mercury is opposite Saturn, we can talk about that later).

4 is a yang energy with a masculine tone of strength and stability. It’s dependable and punctual. Reminding us that we are right on time to receive these destiny filled messages.

Pluto is sitting at 20°41, Jupiter is sitting at 14°25 and Chiron is sitting at 2°13 – so the 2’s and 4’s keep showing up. Pay attention.

A little story for you...

When the signs come in from multiple messengers, we would be wise to listen. And Gemini is the messenger. So part of your work here this week is to lean into your listening skills. To keep your eyes open for signs, or as my favorite co-facilitator + teacher, Sasha Bahador calls it: Spirit Speak.

She happens to be a Gemini. Recently, she told me a story where she was in a state of incubation, grappling with her next move in life. She’s been a yoga teacher for over a decade (she’s an incredibly moving yoga teacher) and she’ spend a good portion of her life with a huge calling to hold sacred circles and ceremonies AND to gather the women. The past few years, she has been disappearing from the world to spend more time in nature, away from the world and wifi with her teacher in the realm of shamanic journeys. I’ve sat with her in drum journeys and the transmission she shares is pow-er-ful and she’s always had more depth than your average hue-man. Her inner conflict was whether she stops teaching yoga fully and dives right into shamanic journey work or marries the two together for some time until the next clarity arrives.

Her teacher told her to go sit in nature and listen. So she did. She sat by a river for who knows how long and the time came to leave and she still wasn’t clear. A little frustrated, she climbed off the rock she was sitting at and the sun caught her eye as it reflected off something stuck between two stones. Always one to pay attention to the signs, she investigated. What she found blew her mind. There were two necklaces, each with their own emulates wrapped together. One a yogic symbol and a Shamanic symbol. Her jaw dropped and she fell to her knees with gratitude.

I tell this story because it would be easy to stay caught in the inner battle between two competing inner parts and instead she opened herself up to a messenger. She asked Spirit to give her a sign and put herself in a position to listen. Spirit delivered in a tiny shiny object that could have been dismissed as trash. But she didn’t and it fortified her clarity.

We are setting ourselves up for some major healing.

The Gemini Season Astro Nidra is still live and super helpful to integrate these energies. You can get yours here.

Sit deep into this New Moon Lunar Lovers. Take some extra time for yourself. Get your journal out and let it out there, whatever is moving through you. Gather with your girlfriends. Make love to your partner or yourSelf. Mostly, be tender and kind. The world needs more kindness right now.
