Balsamic Moon - This is final phase of the moon before it goes Dark - the end of one cycle and actually the beginning of another. Keywords for the Balsamic phase are transition, release, transformation, renewal, purity. It is the phase in a cycle when you must let go of everything you have been working on that does not deal with the current cycle's issues. During this phase you reflect on the passing cycle and prepare for the new. Trust in renewal. It is important to separate from others now so that you clear the intellect of negativity. LET GO. Become still and meditate.
Moon in Gemini - This is a time of communication and other means of expression, freedom, adaptability, short journeys, reading or writing, desire for variety and having more than one thing going at once. You feel talkative and might want to work with your hands during this moon's transit. All communication (talking, writing or reading) and intellectual matters are easier during a Gemini Moon. Women are more adaptable and changeable, so take all statements and promises with a grain of salt, especially if the person has proven fickle in the past. It's a hard time to make any decisions, but a good time to use your wit and cleverness in conversation. There is a strong desire for variety and freedom, in emotional matters and in your environment. Issues of the practical world are set aside. Moon in Gemini is the best time to work magick for good communication, change of residence, writing, public relations and travel. Healing rituals for ailments of the shoulders, arms, hands or lungs are also done during this period of time.
There are minor magickal energies today for rites/spells to eliminate obstacles to wealth, power and fame.
