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!

Sun’s position:           5 degrees Gemini (The Twins)
Moon’s position:        5 degrees Gemini (The Twins)

SO many things are layered within this New Moon: Sun and Moon together. On the Summer Solstice point. An eclipse. And, Saturn and Jupiter and Pluto dancing upon the edges of Sagittarius and Capricorn. And Mercury retrograde too!

Let all that go ~ don’t be overwhelmed by the details… instead, embrace a sense of surrendering to forces larger than ourselves.Instead listen to the narrative that wants to be told for this New Moon of Summer Solstice, this eclipse moon in Gemini…

This is a time of extreme polarization and unity.  This is amazing time of amplification, a time of exposure and revelations… And in this layered moment, this important phase of this important year, we are infused right now by Gemini. the Twins. A constellation that understands duality and unity. It is a constellation that understands the sovereign individual within an unbreakable partnership or collaboration.

Look to the symbol Gemini. It is a doorway, it is an opening into all the possibilities, to all the colors of the rainbow, to all the possible outcomes and imaginative ways forward. Gemini is the place of cell replication; the constellation of multiplicity, replication, growth.  A constellation of paradox and possibilities.

Let’s place this into context: As the third constellation of the zodiac we now see duality, other. we see differentiation we see conflict and we see projection and we see help mates and we see creative collaboration with other. 

You can find this immediately within the duality of your very self! Have you ever had the experience of being unable to use a limb? This example of teamwork becomes meaningful and clear as an experience… not being able to use both sides of yourself to accomplish things. You get it from the inside out. This is true on the emotional / mental levels too- that your knowing of your shadow and your light make you whole.

Look again at the symbol Gemini. We see how this two-ness creates an alchemical chamber, a cooking vessel where things can begin to happen – transformation and complexity begin to emerge.

Look at these two individuals, these two twins who stand upon the earth and underneath the sky.  Let us go deeper still to notice that these two beings of the twins are unified in their listening to the earth and they’re unified in their sensing of the sky… and the central pillar of Space between them, this vessel is a meeting point not only between these two individual beings but between these dimensions, these realms of Earth and sky.

This is by way of saying that within the deep complexity of this astrological moment, within the complexity of this political moment, this EcoLOGicAL moment… we can creatively collaborate with one another and we can remember our place as a being of starlight woven temporarily to matter, to earth.

Within this current moment – a moment of complexity of fear, confusion, scarcity, illness, loss, death we can stay within an echo chamber of ourselves, [our conflicts and differences, our ‘battle lines’ ] {our frailty, our humanity} OR we can engage our higher calling: we can listen to the earth and we can listen to the sky and we can stay there and sense their intermingling within us and between us.

How?  We pause, ground and enter into this symbol, finding that space within us and between us that is filled with the listening.  receiving from below and above. being present and still with the irritating paradoxes and unknowings… receiving the light and presence of Gemini.

The constellation of the twins introduces complexity and duality which can be overwhelming but remember also the constellation of the Twins introduces the possibility and complexity of love. And devotion. Commitment to collaboration, despite differences.

It is our work now to strengthen our alchemical chamber, our cooking vessel for the transformation that is underway within us and around us. It is bigger than you and therefore you’re not in charge of it but you are needed to participate within it.

Jupiter and Pluto indicate the continued emptying of the skeletons in the closet out onto the floor in a messy and distressing heap. We continue to serve the evolutionary changes by devotedly, passionately loving the seemingly unanswerable riddles and paradoxes of life now.

We stake our claim deep into the earth and we reach our consciousness up into the stars. And we extend our hearts into the field around us, nurturing the vessels of transformation between us.

Let this new moon cycle surprise you – because it will. Bring all of your good ideas and sure opinions along with your beginners mind and your clarity that you know nothing.

This is Gemini, this is exploration – this is the marriage of heaven and earth within you, the sacred human being.
