Gemini Full Moon: Dark and Light

I was just turned away at the airport, from a much awaited trip to a handful of my favorite places: Vienna, Paris and Versailles.

The ticket agent was unusually spry, warm and caring, a person you just feel good around. A good person for breaking bad news. [Read more…]

Gemini New Moon: Perceptual Shifts

While Mercury retrograded through my eighth house, in the silent sign of Taurus, I experienced a few hours of deep panic where I feared I’d lost my writer voice. Writing never is easy, but when I’d go to the page no words came. [Read more…]

Gemini Full Moon: The Others

Perhaps you have a friend with whom you are completely at odds in values and choices, or a sibling that vexes you by being the opposite of you in every way. Or a lover who turns left when you say go right. Yes, you’ve met the confounding, maddening Other, before…We all have. It can be fun to have differences. Or not!

I have a client who just had twins (Scorpios- double trouble!) enter her family. Twins get to spend their entire lives exploring the duality and similarity of their situation. Imagine the madness and the joy of it! Everyday a trip to a hall of mirrors…Is that me, we, or you? Is this true, or that? [Read more…]

Gemini New Moon: Fresh Air

As a young school girl, I remember looking forward to this time of year. School was out and summer break beckoned: A three month stint of lazing by the pool, playing with friends, camping trips, trips to visit relatives and plenty of time to whittle away at my Nancy Drew book collection. Mostly I looked forward to freedom– from the ho-hum of same stuff, different day. By May I was fidgety and bored, ready as a bottle rocket to burst out the school door and while I didn’t have the superpowers make the world brand new again, I suspected that summer could.

Gemini Full Moon: Messenger Moon

Constantly multi-tasking between science fiction videos, shopping and work, catching his attention is like trying to catch a butterfly in motion. As a result, I’ve learned a few tricks to keep him engaged. For instance, a bold statement will always get his attention; so will anything whimsical or intellectually interesting. I’ve also learned that distraction is not always the culprit. When someone’s tuning another person out, there’s a strong chance that one or both of us are bored. Symptoms? Hearing, but not really listening; anticipating what the other person will say, or finishing their sentences before they have a chance to actually speak them. Attention-getting strategies aside, Gemini Moon also teaches me the power of fun, variety and newness- as for Gemini, boredom equals death. [Read more…]

Gemini New Moon: Refreshing Power

WhereHeavensMeetEvery day is a new chance to be healthy. I remember reading this phrase, cut out from a magazine, on a friend’s vision board twenty odd years ago. The “Every day is a new chance to…” felt so enticing to me. What I didn’t know even then was that I was about to make a big decision that changed the course of my life – to uproot and move halfway across the country – and that spontaneous decision would happen to spin on the edge of a dime at that same dear friend’s urging to claim my happiness, to follow my heart. It was a radical and bold suggestion. And years later, when I feel stuck in a rut, bored, sick, uninspired, I remind myself that every day holds this promise and wonder: I can be made fresh, brand new.

We all get stuck in routines of habit, boredom and apathy. We think this is how it always has been, and so will be. Along comes Gemini. If you’ve ever had the experience of reading a book, listening to a teacher or being in conversation with someone who says something in that fresh and just-for-you way that shifts your entire perception of your self and your life, you’ve been touched by the Gemini angels.
