Solar Question for the Day: "Are
you in touch with your emotions?"
Lughnasadh (Gwyl Awst) Quarter
of the Year
September 28th, 2010
Moon in Gemini - quickens our nervous system. Build a web of understanding - network, absorb new information. 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 the moon's transit in Gemini.
All communication (talking, writing or reading ) and intellectual matters are easier during Gemini Moon times. 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, and lungs are best done during this period of time. Those born in Gemini's moon sign want to understand and they live and breathe communication. They may need to learn to honor stillness and concentration. They translate for us, and question us. Towards the end of this moon transit, when the moon approaches the sign of Cancer, interactions and communications become more emotional.
Tiu's Day - Mars Day - the Day of Activity and Physicality, Passion, and Desire - Action Day.
Fungi (mushrooms) are seemingly small, innocent creatures, and yet they are actually the largest living organism on earth, made up of mycelia, strong single-celled strands of fiber, snaking below ground in web-like formations. They are powerful enough to create visions, healing of soul, re-vision of the earth's soil. Some mycelium networks are so vast, they are only visible from great heights - evidenced by the blooming of their mushroom flowers in huge fairy rings.
It is said that mushrooms can help heal the world - that they, in fact, have been doing so for longer than we know. They've been keen and efficient composters for eons. Now, given the opportunity, mycelia eat and transform the leavings of 'civilizaton' - oil, pesticides, industrial waste - breaking these chemicals back down to their elemental building blocks, once again harmless and available to create life. Mushrooms are being brought into areas that are in need of soil remediation, places like New Orleans, into land fills and unstable hillsides where trees have been stripped, leaving the earth depleted of nutrients and susceptible to slipping away in heavy rainfall. Mushrooms thrive in these places, soothing, healing these scarred and poisoned landscapes.
"Bless you silent menders of a planet
torn by strip-mining, clear-cutting, toxic waste dumping,
soil stripped of nutrients,
your web of strongest single-celled strand mycelium,
unseen but for the fruiting of fruiting mushroom flowers,
you hold us, mend us, heal us."
