Gemini Crescent Moon
—May 3

It is upon the Gemini crescent phase that shamanic astrologer Raven Kaldera states “we examine our communication patterns as well as our nonverbal signals that are out-and-out advertising, messages we send in order to seem better (or, in some cases, worse) than we really are…”

The last Gemini crescent phase was April 5th, which was the last time you had the opportunity to discover more about how you communicate—with yourself and with others—particularly in those times when all your words matter, and hold that much more weight,, such as an interview, or a public speech, or on a first date.

Manipulation, then, is very much a part of today’s energies…

Do try not to be the verbal manipulator or the manipulated—if that’s a word?—and choose your words wisely and carefully, as communications, specifically, could be much more direct today.

To manipulate, by definition, is to ‘manage or influence skillfully, especially in an unfair manner; or to adapt or change to suit one’s purpose or advantage’… and so be the way in communicative techniques—in an effort to manipulate your potentials, your gains, and your opportunities for, by, or from others in more constructively positive ways… rather than deconstructively or unfairly.

Today is a really timely day to consider the ways you communicate, and to examine the ways in which you struggle.

Further, you might also look at all of the surrounding and supportive details about communicating—such as your mannerisms, your etiquette, your vocabulary, and your tone… it may be necessary, now, to scrap some of the non-essentials—to simplify, in an effort to manipulate your stronger skills, and eliminate your nastier communicative habits.

Until you realize how easy it is for your mind to be manipulated, you remain the puppet of someone else’s game.❞
——Evita Ochel
