Last quarter moons are turning points or crossroads, clearing the way for the new moon / new lunar cycle. This phase prepares us for a high-octane New Moon in Virgo on Sep 6.
When the moon is in Gemini, it is a good time to eat, plant, and harvest flowers. It is also a good time to catch up on communications with close friends and siblings, write, read, and sing.
The quarter moon in Gemini is an agent of motion, a breeze that lifts and drops us off somewhere. Virgo is the rooting agent. She encourages Gemini to descend from the clouds and come back to his body, back to work.
It is time to become a student of life again, or perhaps a teacher. Both Gemini and Virgo are ruled by Mercury. Gemini/Virgo/Mercury are all associated with regulated environments like school and work. The curious thrill of going back to school each fall – this is the essence of mercurial energy. The joy of taking care of our health and learning more about our bodies – this is Virgo. Synapses firing, letters flying around the planet – this is Gemini.
People with this sun/moon combination are fastidious and detail-oriented. They find great satisfaction in cleaning, organizing, and ordering objects. They are often drawn to math and linguistics.
This moon phase last year was not easy. The wind and smoke blew in strongly across the state of Oregon. Work sucked. There were lots of last minute changes to plans. Tension is the word. But this year I have great news: this moon phase forms a supportive trine to Saturn Retrograde in Aquarius. Saturn provides resources, stability, and clarity. He makes us feel capable and responsible. This should really help alleviate any stress that arises.
This moon phase brings mega mutable energy. Everything will unfold very quickly. In fact, this moon phase is so busy that you might not have time or space to practice self care, but do it if you can – the sympathetic nervous system will be in overdrive. In meditation, focus on the throat chakra. Digest your thoughts with Gemini Yoga. To find your personal moon sign, click here.
