Gemini is the sign of duality. But I like to think of it as contrasting polarities. The sign of the twins is associated with logical left brain thinking but we also have a right brain that processes information intuitively. While Grandfather Sun visits here it is the opportunity to communicate our thoughts and perceptions guided by our inner knowing. We may find ourselves exploring new ideas to add to our knowledge. It is also important to understand the meaning behind the information we are accessing. Sometimes in its search for new adventures Gemini forgets to integrate the new into what it already knows.
On a deeper level when the Sun visits Gemini it activates a need to connect with our Soul Essence Self. The Greek story of the twins Castor and Pollux symbolizes this connection. The twins were inseparable. They did everything together. They were Soul Mates. The greatest difference between them was Castor was mortal and Pollux was a demigod. But it was destined that they would be separated. During a battle Castor the mortal twin was slain. He was placed in the heavens as a Star of the Constellation Gemini. His divine brother Pollux was so distraught with grief at the loss of his brother that he asked Zeus to allow him to die so he could be reunited with Castor. Because Pollux was a son of Zeus and immortal he could not die. But Zeus took pity on Pollux and allowed him to ascend into heaven and be reunited with his brother Castor. Currently in the Northern Hemisphere we can see the twin Stars Castor and Pollux in the north western sky. Pollux is the brighter of the two. They symbolize the search for Soul Mate connection. For us not to another person but the connection to our Soul Essence self.
Our planetary guide for the Sun’s journey through Gemini is Mercury, the messenger. His Greek name is Hermes. He had the ability to travel between the upper world of the gods, the middle world of mortals, and the lower world of the Underworld and the shadow. Currently Mercury is in Taurus (focusing on what is of true value and importance in our lives). On May 29 he enters Gemini and asks us to focus on integration of mind and spirit. Earlier that day we have the Sagittarius Full Moon asking us to listen to our inner knowing and communicate our truth without prejudice. Mercury then enters the sign of Cancer (emotional balance) on June 12 until June 29. He is supporting us to receive guidance from the gods.
The Soul Centered ruler of Gemini is Venus. She has just entered Cancer (May 19) and asks us to focus on emotional balance as the foundation for our living. Venus is the Goddess of Love and in Cancer she supports us to choose to love ourselves so we can love and appreciate others in our lives. She will be visiting Cancer until June 13. While both Venus and Mercury are in Cancer they are ruled by the Moon. Since Sister Moon changes signs about every two and a half days you may find your emotions are fluctuating. It will be important to find a way to stay grounded and connect with the teachers and guides who walk with you on your life journey. On June 13 Venus enters Leo and the focus is on creative expression and courage to be ourselves. Earlier that day (June 13) we have the New Moon in Gemini, writing our new story. Venus will be in Leo until July 09.
In the Northern Hemisphere this is the Flowering Time. Our Animal Totem guide for the Sun in Gemini is Deer, sensitivity and compassion. Deer also symbolizes nonverbal communication. Pay attention to what you are saying not just through your words but also through your energetic expressions. The astrological Earth is in Sagittarius while the Sun visits Gemini. Her Totem guides are Elk, strength, stamina, and the support of community, and Owl, the wisdom to know what is true and what is not true. In the Southern Hemisphere this is your Long Nights Time. Your guides for the Gemini Sun are Elk and Owl, and Deer for the Earth in Sagittarius. For all of us Clan Mother StoryTeller guides us. She supports us as we create our new story. She teaches us to Speak The Truth. More of her story can be found in The 13 Original Clan Mothers by Jamie Sams.
While the Sun visits Gemini we are working with the Tarot Constellation of The Lovers, relationship and choice. The theme is the choice to unite in love or to separate in fear. We are also working with the 2nd Ray of Divine Love and Wisdom. Our Archangel guides are Jophiel, creative vision and spiritual power, and Constance Christine, enlightened illumination.
We are headed into Eclipse season so expect the summer to be sizzling. In the Northern Hemisphere it is the time of growth, expansion, and listening to your intuitive knowing. In the Southern Hemisphere it will be your winter, translating knowledge into wisdom. The Eclipse dates are July 12/13 New Moon Solar at 20 degrees Cancer. July 27/28 Full Moon Total Lunar at 04 degrees Aquarius. And Aug 11/12 New Moon Solar at 18 degrees Leo. Of course by then Mars will also be on his retrograde journey (June 26 to Aug 27) and closer to Earth since 2003. He will also square Uranus in Taurus for the second time on Aug 01. Mars will be in Aquarius, a symbol for the collective consciousness. Taurus is a symbol for what is of true value. The square is finding new ways of doing things and Uranus is breakthrough. The first square was May 15/16 setting the tone.
So enjoy the Sun in Gemini journey before we head into more challenge and change. The Sacred Totem for Gemini is Butterfly, transformation into a new way of being.
ॐ Namasté - Blessings!
