Moon in Gemini - The Moon in Gemini wakes us up; we lose our concentration
but quicken our communication. The conversation sparkles, our thinking broadens
but doesn't deepen. Time to: network, investigate, translate, brainstorm, meditate,
prune, edit, explain and broadcast. The Moon in Gemini quickens our nervous system.
Build a web of understanding - absorb new information. Speak to your plants, trim but
avoid planting. This is a time of communication and other means of expression, freedom,
adaptability, short journeys, reading or writing and having the desire to have more than
one thing going at a once. You may feel talkative and might want to work with your hands
during the moon's transit in Gemini.
All communication (talking and/or thinking) or reading and intellectual matters are easier
during Gemini moon transits. 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 or 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. Those born under a Gemini Moon can talk to anyone, think fast,
multi-task, shift moods with grace, but need to choose depth and focus.
Moon Day - Magickally Moon Day encourages the lunar energies of inspiration, illusion,
prophetic dreams, emotions, psychic abilities, travel, women's mysteries and fertility. Working
with the different phases of the moon is an important skill that takes a bit of time for Witches
to learn. So why not cut to the chase and experiment with the day of the week that is
dedicated to the moon in all of its magickal energies and aspects?
Today's colors are white, silver and pale blue - select candles of these colors for your
workings. The Flowers/plants are bluebells, jasmine, gardenia, white roses, white poppies,
and moonflowers. The essential oils/incenses are Gardenia, jasmine, lemon, lemon balm,
lily, myrrh, sandlwood and Stephanotis.
