This energy is a double-edge sword in that you may “feel” positive and optimistic – which is a good thing – but it is also prone to excess – which brings us to the philosophy of “anything in moderation” or “balance in all things”.
Winter, Spring, Summer & Fall are all active periods, often with a lot of movement, change & choices to be made. The Gates of Power mark the MidPoint between these Initiations and MidPoints are always potent, creative times that allow you to prune the non-essential, while anchoring what is real or alive.
This month we are feeling the pressure to produce results - either from ourselves or outer circumstances (or both). Either way, you have to be extremely mindful of how you spend your energy at this time. Strategic thinking takes practice but you must make the effort to expand your mind to access additional options you may not have realized you had ... and then TRY THEM! (What do you have to lose?) Mother Earth provides EVERYTHING we could possibly need to live this life. It is all within each and every one of us.
Independent means "free from the control of others; self-reliant". To me, it means OWN YOUR STUFF - KEEP IT REAL! Everything about you - the good, the bad and the ugly - is because of you and your choices. We make choices based on the knowledge and experience we have at the time, but the choices are our own nonetheless.
Gemini ushers in a lighter, more playful energy. It is the Child on the Karmic Wheel, care free and detached, alert and curious, gathering information and telling imaginative stories, playing with new characters & different expressions of Truth.
This energy triggers your idealistic side and provokes a desire to understand things on a deeper, more spiritual level. Try to use this energy to reflect on where you are and where you want to be, mentally, spiritually and physically.
This is the beginning of a new cycle of personal self-expression. You may feel the urge to express yourself in new ways, and on many different levels. Communication may also be a focus, just make sure it is reciprocated, meaning two-way and not just one-sided.
This is a healthy selfish energy (aka self-preservation). Do not hold back this week. If you have a big dream or serious goal you have been working toward, then this is the time that may attract the assistance you need from the Universe.
