Choice & Consequence
Ah, the new moon: a time of rest for the mind and body. However, a new moon in Gemini can seem like anything but..! The phrase ‘contradiction in terms’ comes to mind. It’s a phase of push/pull, stop and go and hardly of calm/still. It may take tremendous initial patience to find one’s center, for the chattering din to recede and the still small voice – or two – to be heard. Further, the third decan of Gemini is ruled by the Sun and Saturn, indicating the potential collision of, ‘Let’s do this!’ and ‘Let’s contain this.’ Knowing this ahead of time, we can say: seed-thoughts watered and nurtured during these days can bring winnowing/paring/editing lessons in real time for the mercurial observer. And this will be echoed by oppositions in the energy weather for the next few months. See how that works? 😉
Fortunately, the ruler of the new moon has just slipped into Cancerian waters, perfect for feeling the value of retreat even if it can only be spared in ten minute increments. In fact, it might be very helpful to practice mini mental ‘defrag sessions’ whenever possible to aide in the medium-term pattern of friction and blend we’ll be navigating.
From Now through Summer’s Close: Collectively speaking, we will be hashing out the latest renditions and manifestations of Relational Power dynamics and Personal Spark fine tuning. As history rhymes, we’ll see a tremendous variety of trys and fails showcased in all sectors of the public stage-as-mirror.
Far more useful for each of us as individuals is seeing – feeling – our way along the symbolic cord connecting Egoic concerns/anxiety/wounded pride as well as confidence/success/an overly bright glow to its root within the psychosomatic experience of Me/Myself. How do I quantify my value in practical terms? Can I prove/justify it? How do I best offer/apply my skill sets to the market place and to my intimate circle? What checks have I established to insure that I am listening objectively?
Yes, we have asked these questions at key points over the last 18 months or so. Again, our ‘product’ has reached its current launch date. From here, we can expect an extended period of fixing, stationing – and the grinding and polishing that can occur when the fixed experiences repetitive outside contact. This Gemini new moon also marks a moment to ask, ‘Who consistently has time and energy for me and how can I show my appreciation/reciprocate?’ Warmth, good humor and selfless provision are on tap just outside your chatter box…in these new moon days, do take a play date when you can.
