The waxing first quarter is when we decide what to carry forward from the new lunar cycle. Quarter phases help clarify our plans. Mercury will still be retrograde at this time – for one more day!
Gemini rules best friend and sibling relations. The twins tap into the logical-intellectual-analytical brain. Right away we’re shifting from sleepy Pisces to observant, cogitative Gemini. The twins deliver sharp insight as we travel through the murky waters of Pisces. When mutable constellations get together, the mind and spirit race like flying fish through the clouds. In fact this moon phase is so invigorating that insomnia is likely. The good news is that we’ll have so much energy that sleep honestly doesn’t matter much.
This time of year is undeniably challenging, with reality drifting before us like an abstract mural, swirling and swelling kaleidoscopically; soft and amorphous, dispersed at the lightest touch. Gemini is more discerning, more aware. From Gemini we learn the art of writing, linguistics, and debate. Gemini is a scholar and wordsmith. The twins give us a scintillating feeling, one which makes us want to share our thoughts with others. Group activities – especially those which involve trivia, word games, poetry, etc – are perfect for this moon phase. How many puns can you come up with in one conversation?
On this quarter moon last year, I turned in language materials I made for teacher training. I created my own textbook of spoken language, reading, and writing exercises for young children. I also had a homework party with my fellow teachers.
Swirl words like delicious elixirs in your mouth. Roll them around, flip them up in the air, whisper them into your loved ones’ ears. We are loquacious and sesquipedalian, yearning for our message to be heard and understood. We are singers and poets and rappers and actors and writers.
