4th July 2013: Moon in Gemini

Keep Calm and Carry On Healing

Today the Moon enters the air sign Gemini for a couple of days, offering support to Mars who’s labouring there alone at the moment, trying to keep all the mental balls in the air! It’s quite a task he’s got, as the cosmos becomes saturated with the water element and everything works towards the fulfilment of the Grand Trine in Water the week after next. Nevertheless, with the Moon now in Gemini we have an opportunity to test out new ways of thinking about old problems, in order to fully embrace the possibilities for healing within the Grand Trine.

Despite this being the airiest of Moons, in the current cosmic conditions it still has a fairly watery feel. Connected to Jupiter, Saturn and Neptune, all in water signs, it seeks to communicate about the world of emotions without having to experience any of them. Needless to say this could be easier said than done! With Mars in Gemini, words themselves become powerful conductors of energy, and we may find just speaking of a particular feeling triggers it within us. Our best intentions to discuss something calmly and rationally may thus be somewhat challenged!

But never mind! This really doesn’t matter because the whole point of all this is to show us what needs to heal. That’s what this current heavenly configuration is all about: emotional healing, through and through, within and without. And we can’t heal if we don’t know where the pain is. So if merely trying to get words out brings us to tears, or unleashes feelings that we find difficult to contain, this is a sure sign that healing is on its way. Likewise if other people’s words are the trigger for our emotions the same thing applies. There’s little point in focusing on the words or the person who delivered them. This isn’t about them, it’s about us and our spirit showing us where we next need to go within, to let go and become whole.

Of course, at times like this when we’re all under the influence of such energies it can make for a tidal wave of emotion if we let it. Which is why a Gemini Moon for a couple of days is handy, despite its honorary watery-ness! At least it gives us the hope of some detachment and a chance to see things from a new angle. And in doing so we may just recognise that even those emotions that we can’t seem to contain aren’t so bad after all if we can just let them be there for a while, rather than trying to squeeze them out of our consciousness or push them back down into the depths of our heart where they can’t be seen.

All in all, we’re doing okay. No matter how weepy or angry or despairing we may be, we’re doing okay, because whatever emotions are coming up now do so because their time for healing is close and they don’t want to miss the boat this time around. So take heart, keep calm and carry on healing, because once we’ve done that bit the next stage is replete with blessings that come from letting go of the pain and embracing the possibilities that lie beyond it.

Love to everyone.

Spot on - AGAIN!! God, Sarah, you're good!! Thank You sooo much for this! :smitten:

Sarah, I too find this message once again spot on. I'm so grateful & thankful for your informative, yet loving messages! You can absolutely feel the love behind them & I am so appreciative. There were so many wonderful nuggets to digest in this message, I didn't want to quote any one thing. What a beautiful time to heal. Much love to you! :smitten:

Sarah, you can imagine what kind of state I was in when I began reading your message and my brain read..."trying to keep all the MEATBALLS in the air!". :2funny

Is this what you meant by "some detachment and a chance to see things from a new angle?"

I'm actually quite used to being lost in space even without airy moons but sometimes (like today) my operational system is running very close to empty.

Incidentally, might I submit a request for some spaghetti to go with those meatballs?

Shapeshifter, we are so often on the same page. When I read “the Gemini moon and its honorary watery-ness,” I read ornery watery-ness. Nevermind that I couldn’t spell it. And I had the same thought after, is this what Sarah means by detachment and seeing things from a new angle? Your operating system running on empty, which I totally relate to, reminds me of Jamye’s post today having to do with the void, expecting no-thing, allowing us to step further into the vast field of potential.

Thanks for your response yesterday, bluefeatheryone, regarding the seeming risk in trying to see the lightness of things—or more to the point, trying to articulate it. I have an on-again off-again relationship with words. Separators or connectors? You’ll remember we’ve had this conversation, Shapeshifter.

Thanks again, Sarah, for your beautifully articulated insights and for giving me a place to play and feel better. I’m enjoying the notion of juggling meatballs under an ill-tempered moon on the verge of a temper tantrum.

"Bring it on"--if this is about healing "bring it on"! This energy is kicking butt today and am ready for a big dose of peace! Sarah, you are always so spot on and I am so grateful for and to you! :smitten: May we all feel the Universe sending loads of LOVE our way--XO

Kay, this planet and all its inhabitants are in big trouble if you and I are frequently on the same page.

Those Freudian slips of ours undoubtedly require some immediate attention but then again, I think that balancing meatballs under an ornery moon fits right in with all the other experiences I've been having lately.

I can definitely relate to your on-again off-again relationship with words. It's never easy to navigate such a relation-ship through the unpredictable waters of emotion.

You know, bfo, I can feel this love when I write them so I'm really glad it comes through to others. It's one of the reasons I enjoy so much doing what I do, because I get this love blast along with it each day :) It's a blessing and I'm so grateful for it :smitten:

lol Shapeshifter! It wouldn't surprise me if I had written that. I have made some dreadful typos in the past lol. typing 'carnage' instead of 'change' was a particularly memorable one , though I guess carnage is a particular sort of change so... :crazy2

Amen to that Sandra! And the New Moon that's approaching will most certainly help us do that :smitten:

An interesting thought did come to me yesterday - the scariest, darkest, most daunting place to be really is in our minds. We can't escape our thoughts, they follow us wherever we go. We could be sitting on a blissful tropical beach - it can take just one negative thought to mushroom out of control, and turn that beach into a gaping chasm of hell.

How Geminian! And just acknowledging that is oddly healing in itself.

Ah yes ri. This is SO true! We can be tyrannised by our minds until we learn to use them well. In my teens a buddhist monk said to me 'we don't have to believe a thought' and that has stayed with me my entire life and saved me more times than I can say! Just because our mind tells us something doesn't mean it's true! :thumbs:
