Forecast for Friday, July 17th
Gemini Balsamic Moon; Part 2
★Oracular Overview—listening is a superpower…
Abraham Maslow’s definition of *real* listening: to listen “without presupposing, classifying, improving, controverting, evaluating, approving or disapproving, without dueling what is being said, without rehearsing the rebuttal in advance, without free-associating to portions of what is being said so that succeeding portions are not heard at all.”
By Monday, on the Cancer new moon—we’re beyond eclipse season now—though this finalizing lunarly beginning will likely somewhat force a decision or deciding factor upon you or your circumstances… a decision which will require your full and active participation—participation which should probably support itself through the very vital act of actually listening.
The only lunarly connections today provides is to nebulous and unreliable Neptune, to aggressive and me-first Mars, or to the hard knocks motivations within the reunited Capricorn stellium… whatever ultimate decision you’re pondering on is highly likely not being summoned quite yet.
I wonder if you’d better wait til tomorrow…
❝Oh my, Dolly Mae, how can you hang me up this way?
On the phone you said you wanna run off with me today…
Now I’m standing here like some turned-down serenading fool
Hearing strange words—stuttered—from the mixed-up mind of you…
And you keep telling me, that, uh…
—I think we better wait till tomorrow…❞
——Jimi Hendrix; “Wait Until Tomorrow”
Though honestly—I wonder if by waiting until Tuesday, July 21st—the details within the circumstances might have more meaning and much more life force… your decision should possess more substance by then.
In other words—it will be important, if not imperative, for you to truly listen—really listen—from now through the weekend… to avoid confusions, conflictions, misunderstandings, and misinterpretations, which are all very likely these days, especially as Mercury and Mars continue the ongoing square they’ve been holding since earlier this month.
Also of note, today Venus moves directly through 14° Gemini—one degree point beyond the recent solar inferior conjunction on June 3rd—and this movement would suggest the inflection of reflection toward what has opened up for you since then in regard to relationships, connections, visualization, and communication?
As the moon moves through and Venus continues, as well, through Gemini, it might interest you to know that Raven Kaldera reminds us that “Gemini often plays both sides—because it may still be uncertain where the winning side is going to lie…”¹
Further, Kaldera continues that “Thoth was revered both for his cache of information and his skill in utilizing it; Gemini also feels this way, secretly or not so secretly—to Gemini, it’s what you know, not what you sense or intuit, that sets you above the dull and ignorant crowd… even mysterious lunar information, like feelings and intuition, can—must—somehow be contained within words or symbols that can be spoken, read, and passed on—the idea that there are some things that cannot be spoken, cannot be put into words, infuriates and terrifies a Gemini moon.”¹
❝Tell me what you pay attention to and I will tell you who you are.❞
——José Ortega y Gasset
“F Scott Fitzgerald wrote about how the mark of a really first-rate intelligence was the ability to hold two opposing ideas in your head and not go mad; the Gemini moon allows us to look at possibilities and ways of being that are multiple and often opposed to each other, and say simply, ‘yes, both.’…”¹
Perhaps today’s energies resonate toward this notion—to simply sit with your thoughts, to consider two or more opposing views or perspectives with a mindset of ‘yes, both’ until you’ve recognized not your preference—but your authenticity within…
Perhaps today is more about possibility than preference—more about potentially involving new ideas and foreign ideas and ideas once consisted taboo through truly listening to the baseline needs within the demands… rather than clinging to preferences through control, and rendering a self-made plan of eventual obsolescence.
