Over the next two days (11 & 12 April 2016), the transiting Gemini Moon makes a Grand Mutable Cross and a Grand Air Trine. Long story short – watch what you say, think, communicate and express and how it is received. The chances of triggering / bring triggered is a lot higher over the next 48 hour period. Which isn´t necessarily a bad thing, it just means that you´re asked to face certain issues or challenges head on.
The Mutable Cross involves Neptune (10 Pisces), South Node (20 Pisces) Saturn Retrograde (16 Sagittarius), Mars (8 Sagittarius), North Node (20 Virgo), Jupiter Retrograde (14 Virgo). Which the Cross can denote stress, it can also be the launchpad for discovering new ways or creatively moving through the challenges being presented. Whether you´re a spiritual seeker, teacher, facilitator, practitioner, mystic (whatever word resonates with you) – this Cross will make you question how you explore and express your deeper connection with Spirit and the wider Cosmos.
Bear in mind that the world mirrors your journey – sometimes in an honest reflection, and at other times a distortion. Both convey truths, albeit sometimes in a more roundabout way than we would like. In short,
How do you navigate your Path through the Hall of Mirrors?
Which reflection is ´real´ – which isn´t – and what do they all teach?
In all honesty, it´s more like two slightly different Grand Crosses that are formed, as the Moon continues its motion through Gemini on April 11 and 12. On April 12, we also see the creation of a powerful Grand Air Trine.
The Grand Air Trine intensifies the power of words, ideas and more abstract forms of energy-communication. At 25 Gemini, the Moon will conjunct the asteroid Psyche, which, in combination with Black Moon Lilith (25 Libra) and Pallas Athena (26 Aquarius) – speaks to me of a potent opportunity for re-writing your narrative, especially with the Divine Feminine.
Time to look at the ways we conceptualize Her energy and mirror (for better or worse) those qualities in our own lives and self-concepts.
Suggested Practices / Handy things to bear in mind:
Speaking. Saying what´s on your mind. Expressing. (I do not mean verbal diarrhoea, or lashing out at someone – but to do so from a centered place.
Speak so your voice is heard, rather than obeyed. Both types of communication come from a very, very different place within. In other words – speak from the Heart and allow others the freedom of making up their own minds. You have that same freedom.
Listening. Taking the time to hear someone else out. Our the parts of you you don´t let yourself normally hear.
Writing (nondominant hand exercises rock) / Journaling
Working with stones like optical calcite (discernment), aquamarine / turquoise (balanced communication) and smoky quartz (grounding)
Singing / Toning / Throat Chakra Clearing
Staying open to different points of view and alternate ways of making meaning in the (and your) world, both inner and outer
Honoring deities/archetypes of Wisdom, e.g. Goddess Saraswati, Goddes Pallas Athena, and so on. (depending on your tradition)
Seeking guidance from facilitators who can help you shift and/or release paradigms that no longer work.
Remember that you do the work, facilitators are but the catalyst. It´s in your hands, or mind, rather. 😉
For those of you seeking to work with me, bear in mind that the Vesta/Eris sessions are ongoing.
Enjoy and be mindful of your words. Take nothing personally 🙂
Here´s some music/mantras for the mood :
Winds of Change – Scorpions with the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra (2000) –https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zYnjm5KjgQU
Nahko Bear (Medicine for the People) ღ Aloha Ke Akua – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YsgP8LkEopM&nohtml5=False (the chorus is awesome! :D)
Hymn with English subtitles – Sree Saraswati Stotram written by Sage Agastya –https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ys2vTiXWhB8&nohtml5=False
And if things just get too stressful, if all the tension is just building up – watch Kung Fu Panda 3. I kid you not. It´s got so many of the answers that so many spiritual seekers and teachers look for, presented in a way that will make you both smile and think.
🙂 🙂 🙂
