Happy Full Moon in Gemini! Gemini energy invites us into the flavor of adbhuta, or WONDERment and awe. This time is one of being open to shift your perception of reality, being available to the Universe's messages and omens, and allowing them to work on you in just the right ways. How can you open yourself to the Universe's moment-to-moment play, letting it reveal just what it's meant to right now? This time is one of gathering information through the conversations you have, be it with a stranger or a dear friend, or with the Universe itself through signs, symbols, numbers, and however the bigger intelligence is seeking to get through to you! Communication is a word that is typically associated with Gemini in the astrological realm, but remember that this communication isn't just with people...it's with all of Life! Mercury, the ruler of Gemini, is the messenger god, as he flies through the Cosmos at warp speed with wings on his shoes and on his hat, collecting and sharing data with different parts of the Universe. Said to be a keeper of boundaries, he is the bridge between this world and the underworld, or the conscious mind and the subconscious mind. He gives access to the deeper layers of one's inner reality, allowing the information there to percolate up into the conscious mind, revealing itself when you're open to it, or the time is right, or both. The key with Mercury and with Gemini are staying open to what Life is offering, no matter what it reveals, while not getting pulled into the onslaught of information that is constantly available. For Gemini's shadow is just this: moving into an inner state of overwhelm, gathering so much information that the mind moves into informational deluge, becoming disconnected from the body and the heart. So be open to what's being offered, and allow it to come into your awareness from without or within! Then be so available to each moment that the continuous flow of Life simply moves you along in just the right ways. This requires connection with the mind, the body, and the heart. Slow down, check in, and open up!
As with any Full Moon, the Sun is in its opposing sign of Sagittarius, the sign of the gypsy, the student, and the philosopher. Ruled by Jupiter, Mercury's pops, Sag is all about expanding your understanding of the Universe and your place in it. Also needing to remain open to different perspectives and vistas, Sag is here to immerse itself into those diverse experiences that call you to them, stoking your inner fire so you can live from this place of brightness and warmth. This is an energy that needs the freedom to live life as an adventure, one that leads to deeper meaning, greater knowing, and the awareness that all paradigms are useful, all vistas are valuable. How does being open to the Universe's play allow you access to a greater understanding of what it means to be alive? How does opening to a shift in perception invite you to an expansion of your awareness in just the right ways? How have you been closed to what the Universe is offering? And how can you open to it for a limitless experience of what's available, right here and now? As always, enjoy the ride!
