This week brings a new moon in Gemini.
Think Goldilocks… How was she supposed to know which bed to sleep in without trying them all, said the Gemini?
Sometimes in life, we wander around. Sometimes we even get lost. It could be a whole lifetime where you are not able to fulfill what you set out to do—children arrive, relationships break, illness occurs—on the way to your destination, something totally unrelated changes the direction of your original goal. This is the tale of a mutable child.
A little Gemini girl annoyed her Virgo Mom, traveled endlessly as she studied one topic after another without a clear major. Eventually she found her job; she became a journalist. She learned—for a short amount of time—something important, she would dive in and then out, and keep going.
But, she judged herself for being flighty, fickle, or unaccomplished. This is the story of so many Geminis.
Marilyn Monroe (a Gemini) disliked her mutability. She felt her career was too influenced by men’s decisions without her desire to be taken seriously. She was so frustrated by her circumstance.
We, in this day and age, can change that story. Women and men know we can have a voice, should we take it. Because we study Astrology, we can stand up for our nature. Ask a professional astrologer about you or your child so that you DO NOT judge or shame your kid in a way they internalize and absorb.
So that if they are changeable and seemingly fickle, you can celebrate their air, their mutability. For those of you reading this who go from topic to topic, who change your address, your clothes, your career—it’s ok.
The prayer for this new moon: Help me understand the playful child in me. The part of me that is so changeable longing to run far beyond Judgment Street. Shower me in sweet acceptance as I watch my authentic self come excitedly out for a walk, to write that article, to read that book…to change my mind.
I trust myself to have fun above all else, never forgetting my inner child.
May my youthful self—my beginner’s mind—step up as I surrender to my kid likeness.
If everyone understood their inner child and stood away from judging—letting their kid be healed and given a full expression, especially in adulthood—we would be smiling more and having far more fun than we are right now.
Bless your inner child.
My Gemini has not yet found residence in the grownup neighborhood. I still hang out at the playground of life. I pride myself for being like a kid who has not forgotten the wonder of it all and has no pressure to be anyone or anything that I am not. This is the flavor of this double Gemini sky.
Tell us the status of your kid? Judged, freed, or just hiding in the other room?
Happy new moon! There’s so much mutable energy in the sky. What do you want to do/change/start now? Feel free to change your mind once more and start all over again.
