Gemini Gibbous Moon
—January 13

Today’s chattier moon isn’t as much interested in talking for the sake of hearing its own voice, as a Gemini moon typically rationalizes… but rather, for better or worse, to feel heard.

However… what you say, exactly, or express or proclaim or hint at—this is what will vary, and this is what will matter.

You might actually know what you’re talking about… or, maybe you don’t.

It’s been somewhat obvious, through the last several years, that many people actually believe their own feelings about—well, anything!—is actual fact.

To Gemini, as shamanic astrologer Raven Kaldera states, “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, passed on; the idea that there are some things that cannot be spoken, cannot be put into words, infuriates and terrifies a Gemini moon.”

It could, very well, be one of those days when you just need to say things out loud—to yourself, to another, to anyone who will listen, or to anyone within earshot… as your feelings or inner thoughts may make more sense to you if said aloud, or if they were repeated to you from another—or perhaps, maybe not more sense, but rather, this process could allow for more understanding, or a sense of empowerment, or clarification, or perhaps, simply a feeling of ease… or embarrassment.

Though, I think the greater vibration today could be found within the understanding or clarification of our words… a new awareness, either way, for better or worse, will be established through the process of hearing them said aloud.

With lunarly connections to a rather ripely righteous Jupiter in Pisces, a stationing Mercury in Aquarius, and to Saturn in Aquarius—which may as well be referred to (in real time, archetypally) as a millennial Karen from the Human Relations Department or OSHA, or the CDC… it will be something of an exercise in authenticity to embrace opposing views upon a single point or issue while keeping your cool and your head—and your tongue!—about it along the way.

How would a Gemini moon tackle this challenge?

By wholeheartedly siding with both sides of course…

You’ll likely learn something new and shocking about yourself—or an/Other—or about something—especially if you really think you know what you’re talking about.

The test of a first-rate intelligence is the ability to hold two opposed ideas in the mind at the same time, and still retain the ability to function. One should, for example, be able to see that things are hopeless and yet be determined to make them otherwise. This philosophy fitted on to my early adult life, when I saw the improbable, the implausible, often the “impossible,” come true.❞ ——F. Scott Fitzgerald
