Gemini Disseminating Moon—October 13
Mercury governs today and Mercury has just recently moved into Libra—on October 11th—and with this ingress marks more planets moving in air than any other element: today’s moon; the sun; Mercury; Venus; Mars; and Saturn…
Note that, beyond Saturn, all the personal planets are in air—this is a detail.
Until October 23rd—when the sun and Venus ingress into Scorpio, and Mercury to follow quickly thereafter on October 29th—from now until then we are mentally subsumed!—cerebrally pregnant with ideas, solutions, and questions, or with doubt, confusion, and more questions…
That the seeds of solutions are abundant is relative—as it is necessary, in order to actually benefit, to be able to center into ourselves, well beyond or underneath all the noise (otherwise, all the seemingly ever-flowing information and stimulus could provoke anxiety, distraction, or overload)… if we’re able to find the quiet required—we can fully receive the necessary synaptic responses.
This is an exciting and prosperous time for inspirations, for being engaged in interesting thoughts or perplexing questions or even flummoxing riddles…
It’s a time to be engaged, actively—with vision—in your life.
Curiously, the moon connects to Mercury today through a degree that most literally describes Christmas…
<this notion provokes me to shudder>
This degree, then, associates itself with ‘celebrations of the spirit, while returning your spirit to basic joys, remembering the past… the simple gestures that remind us of larger realities… warmth, joy, and anticipation.’
Unless, of course, it causes you instantaneously severe anxiety!
This degree also, however, reminds us that mistletoe represents ‘regeneration and restoration’… “perhaps it is time to bring the spirit of peace and reconciliation into the home and family, regardless of the time or the season…”
Does a little regeneration and/or restoration feel necessary within some aspect of your reality?
Still—try not to overload yourself.
