“In neither pain nor joy is liberation found.
In neither Dark nor light will the spiritual sun appear.
The pairs of opposites distracts the eyes of men.
Only the single eye directs the steps of the initiate upon the Way.”
~ Alice Bailey
Tonight we will experience a full (super) moon in the airy sign of Gemini (the twins).This is a time of adaptability, short journeys, reading/writing and a desire for variety of having more than one thing at once. We may all be feeling more talkative and expressive during this moon's transit.
“Whether or not we realize it, we all have stories we tell ourselves, about ourselves. As the zodiac’s writer, messenger, and storyteller, Gemini is the sign of those personal scripts. Right now, challenge yourself to see the roles you play in those stories for what they really are, not what you want them to be. If necessary, you can change your performance and give yourself a new direction!"~ Amelia Quint,
All communication (talking, writing, or reading) as well as intellectual matters are easier during the Gemini Full moon. People may become more adaptable and changeable, so take all statements and promises with a grain of salt, especially if the person has proven to be fickle in the past. During this transit this is a hard time to make any decisions, but it's a good time to use your wit and cleverness in conversation. There may also be a strong desire for some variety and freedom especially in emotional matters that are in your environment. Towards the end of this transit, when the moon begins to approach the sign of Cancer, our interactions and communications will begin to become much more emotional. ,
