Gemini and Leo promote luminous thoughts, allowing them to be projected and reflected in the outer life. This can fortify our visions, facilitating their communication and circulation. Regardless of what is happening around us, we are what we think, and our power lies on being aware of what we think, and of the effects of our thoughts in the reality they create.
This lunar stage challenges us to be bold and express our true thoughts and feelings. How often do we block ourselves only because we are afraid to appear ridiculous, impudent, proud, or to be judged and misunderstood? Or, and this can be even worst, because we believe that what we think comes from the ego? When we have these type of reservations and fears, the ego itself is at work.
The ego is based on illusion and lies. Hence its favourite strategy, especially amongst spiritual and sensitive people, is to pretend to fight and repress itself. All these concerns and obsessions about finding out the ego in ourselves and others is a witch hunt organised by the ego itself in order to keep receiving attention.
Gemini and Leo are an invitation to be in the present moment, freely and transparently expressing ourselves, letting go of hypocrisy, and allowing others to do the same.
“Welcome is every organ and attribute of me, and of any man hearty and clean. Not an inch, nor a particle of an inch, is vile, and none shall be less familiar than the rest. I am satisfied—I see, dance, laugh, sing.” (Walt Whitman, Sun in Gemini, Moon in Leo, Ascendant in Aries)
Sun in Gemini and Moon in Leo are in a sextile (60°) aspect, which involves two complementary signs, sharing the same polarity, yet not the same element. The binary can work harmoniously and provide beneficial opportunities as long as there is awareness and clarity of intention on both sides.
Qualities: creativity, playfulness, grace, self-confidence, warm communication, leadership, generosity, charm.
Grievances: arrogance, self-importance, conceit, pomposity, childishness.
Four days after exact New Moon we are moving in the second half still of the Crescent Moon, or Sowing Moon, with exact Crescent Moon occurring when the Sun and the Moon is 45° apart (Sun sextile Moon). Significant elements of the potential of the New Moon continue to emerge. It is a receptive phase, aimed at gathering information and getting ready to take action according to the Intent established or perceived during New Moon. At this stage the multidimensional Intent gently comes to terms with the ordinary reality. The question here is: “How can I communicate my Intent in ways understandable in the third-dimensional reality?” This is also a time of digestion, analysis and planning.
