Today marks the New Moon in Gemini which is symbolised by twins and it may have you feeling like there are two or more of you living inside your head, bringing some confusion and uncertainty during this new moon phase.
Gemini is the sign of communication, as is its ruling planet Mercury and this new moon we are being asked to look at our inner dialogue and how we talk to ourselves.
With Gemini being an Air sign, we might find ourselves in our heads which can lead to the noise and discomfort of anxiety, overwhelm, negative thought patterns and beliefs.
The story of an old Cherokee teaching his grandson about life really sums of the 2 sides of us that this Gemini New Moon may be highlighting.
“A fight is going on inside me,” the old man said to the boy. “It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves. One is evil – he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.”
He continued, “The other is good – he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith. The same fight is going on inside you – and inside every other person, too.”
The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, “Which wolf will win?”
The old Cherokee simply replied, “The one you feed.”
This story serves as an important reminder to us of the power we have over our mind. It is said that 90% of our thoughts are the same as yesterday, so it makes sense to make sure what you are feeding your mind is your truth.
If you find yourself flitting from darkness to light, ruling with your head rather than your heart. Going from one thought to another or feeling emotionally imbalanced where one minute, you’re saying yes to life the next minute you’re say no. Try to see this as an opportunity for growth and if you find yourself busy in the mind, then take some time to meditate on your thoughts and begin to watch and reflect on what you are telling yourself time and time again. On the plus side you never know being in your head might turn out to be a good thing.
Take time to journal or have a brain dump and create a mind map, anything to control that monkey mind. Get to know the real you underneath the noise of your mind. Don’t worry if your thoughts and ideas don’t make sense right now as time may provide a reason for them. Those light bulb moments that you have under this moon might have the answers to helping you move closer to your truth and purpose in life.
The moon wants you to step into your truth, and share your gifts and talents with the world, so look out for lots of ideas and inspiration flowing through you under this new moon. If you find that you want to learn something new, then this is a perfect opportunity to expand your knowledge.
As we leave the eclipse season it is a powerful time for new beginnings where we can stand in the fullness of ourselves and believe in the unlimited potentials of our mind. We are reminded under this New Moon the power that our minds hold. The creative power. The manifesting power.
Our minds are a gift, a powerful tool that we can guide and use in whatever direction and purpose we desire. And so it's time to use our minds for a higher purpose and for the highest purpose of humanity.
Gemini brings with it a breath of fresh air, new ideas, new perspectives, and the opportunity to connect with our higher sources of wisdom and guidance as well as other like-minded souls. So, get out there, share, receive and speak your truth!
Enjoy having fun. Enjoy being the life and soul of the party. Don't take life so seriously and if this doesn't come easily to you then try and do something each day that takes you out your comfort zone a little bit more.
This is also a good time to work on your Throat Chakra, especially if you struggle with speaking your truth.
