The Lunar Lowdown – a few notes
While not a transcript of our current video by any means,
I’ve included the notes below if you’d prefer to read or for referencing the information later!
Actual Time of Celestial Event: Tuesday July 2nd, 2019 @ 1:16 pm MDT
Sun’s position: 16 degrees Gemini (The Twins)
Moon’s position: 16 degrees Gemini (The Twins)
Here in the center of Gemini, we deal with themes of devotion and love, commitment and connection. I fly up into the constellation of Gemini Sun and Moon together; beloveds within this constellation of deep immersion into the other – so much so, that we find gemini being spoken of as seeing both sides of the coin and having difficulty making decisions because of this identification with both self and other. Much more than Libra who is interested in partnership, Gemini is the place of the Twins: two that are the same but different …how to separate / how to weave together?
So as I was saying, sitting up in the constellation of Gemini with the Sun and Moon, I see across the way Pluto and Saturn. Here they & the Solar Eclipse push me inward into the dark of the dark, where my own fears and darkness dwell. Personally, I am pushed into fear and concern for the future, fear and concern for 2020. These are my own fears and you have your own too. These emerge in this cycle for examination and purification. Take time to sort through the monsters and the dust bunnies hiding under your bed to give you some time to handle real concerns and to quiet irrational speculation (or let’s call it rational speculation because yes, sh*t is real!) but recognizing to worry is not productive.
Sitting up here in Gemini looking at Saturn and Pluto really feels confrontative. Wondering what they’ve got in store for us, with Saturn’s feeling of finality and Pluto’s ability to open up secrets and destabilize us in a process of purification that begins with destruction. Thus 2020 most likely will bring the destabilization / destruction of the old orders but what will take its place? How do we see ourselves individually placing positivity, regeneration, and new life into the spaces yielded by the coming losses and challenges?
In what ways are we prepared to share a meal, a cup of tea, some time to simply listen to others? Yes the grand gesture and the grand plans are excellent but even starting a garden and learning more skills on how to feed yourself from the ground makes a huge difference. What volunteer organizations call to you? Perhaps research where you could plug-in for an hour or two a month.
And (brass tacks) simply seeing the Other as yourself! (we are in the Twins, for heavens sake!) Try this in the grocery store. Try this when someone cuts you off in traffic. Try this when you read something you don’t agree with.
Solar eclipses are always a time to show up in our light in response to the Moon blocking our Sun, however briefly. Like call and response, it is our opportunity to sing out into space “we are here, we can shine too and we show up!” and we do.
