Sun’s position:           23 degrees Gemini (The Twins)
Moon’s position:        23 degrees Gemini (The Twins)

I lift up twirling into the atmosphere, into the night sky, into the Star Fields where I encountered Gemini – these two beings of love, of intimacy ~ the intimacy of brotherhood and sisterhood, of siblings. I feel their deep knowing of one another, the mirroring of one another –  the inside jokes and the private language that moves between them, that is their own.

With the Twins, within the space of one, we have two ~ and with two we can mirror, we can reflect, we can create a charged dynamic space within which the future can flow in and become our lives… our personal evolution and growth.  Words like container, vessel, intimate duality, heaven and earth in alchemy are relevant here.

To make this personal, you can ask yourself, “where in my life do I make Space? Where is there openness … room for something to arrive or arise? emerge?”

The Twins of Castor and Pollux associated with this constellation were world adventurers, and I think there’s a clue there for us … in their sense of spontaneity and openness, responding to that which life brings rather than having a tight, specific agenda.

In these times, we have many questions, much uncertainty… and perhaps desire a tight specific agenda! 

But I see the Twins and this new Moon imbuing us with an opportunity to meet these questions with something more powerful than pat answers.

I see a chance to clarify the vessel, the open space into which each day pours, each day arrives. To pay attention, to tend the walls of that vessel: our own body, our intimate friendships, our safe spaces with therapists, healers, family members, lovers etc.. Even the containers of our practices – prayer, yoga, movement and time in nature…

The Star Beings put it this way. They said,

“feel the space you occupy: feet upon the earth, head in the sky. feel the space within which you dwell…and feel the polarity, the potential energy that lights up within you, poised as you are between earth and sky.  Next, feel the spaces you create between yourself and your beloveds. Putting your attention on the space between the two of you, notice the polarity here, the potential energy that lights up between you…”

This is a moon cycle of being with that space as openness…rather than quickly filling it with an answer. This is a moon cycle of Experiencing how polarities create a vessel that draws in, that pulls in the “Real Answers” that you seek … from near and far, from Earth and Sky … “

By tending to the open space of love, loyalty and devotion that exists within us, & between us and Other, we make ourselves ready to receive the spontaneous and unpredictable future, as it becomes our Now…
