“But don’t be satisfied with stories, how things
have gone with others. Unfold
your own myth, without complicated explanation,
so everyone will understand the passage,
We have opened you.”
With the Gemini archetype of the Storyteller front and centre this December 3rd Full Moon, I started thinking:
How do we let go of our old stories, especially when we believe the earlier chapters have permanently defined us?
We are told that in every moment, we have the opportunity to make choices that change who we are and the path that we are on.
So then why do so many people stay stuck in debilitating systems, crippling debt, addictive patterns, painful relationships and unfulfilling jobs, experiences so painful that you’d think no one in their right mind would ever create them?
The heart knows. (Now if it just could quiet the mind down for a minute, She might be able to speak.)
HOW MIGHT YOUR MIND BE RUNNING THE SHOW?
Over-relying on data, statistics, “facts” to inform your decisions
Shutting down emotions
A belief in duality
Talking too much
Listening too little
Moving too fast from one thing to another
Addicted to information through books, courses, business strategies, etc.
Experiencing anxiety, mental congestion
Afraid to commit
Engaging in tactless humour
The Full Moon in Gemini is here to help us realize the grace in every moment and the potential to create anew in the eternal NOW.
And whether or not Gemini is prominent in your birth chart, each one of us has the opportunity to call the on truth-bearing, information-seeking energies of the Archetypes activated by this weekend’s Full Moon to illuminate where we might want to shine that lunar light.
Meet and greet the Gemini archetype of the STUDENT who asks you to fall in love with the subject of YOU– your stories, triggers, beliefs, passions, lost dreams and lost loves.
Let’s be honest here:
We will always struggle with true love by walking the path of judgment.
We will never gain wisdom by refusing to apply all that information we seek.
We will not experience our freedom by making someone else the authority.
The choices we have made may have been true for us in the past but may not be true for us anymore.
To the degree and depth of our insights and consciousness, the quality of our choices will raise the vibration of our experiences and our relationships in this physical reality.
How have the choices you’ve made line up to the vision you have for your life now?
Onward we go. Next I’d like to introduce you to the MESSENGER who insists that we are here to communicate using the voice of the heart, but first we must calm the voice of a fearful mind.
Fear disguised as not enough, no time, no money, no power, no way and no how can prevent us from doing and saying what we know we should.
But Gemini does not waiver here—discovering and using our voice are essential components in fulfilling our soul contract.
Where are you being asked to speak up or speak out in love and for love?
This next character we meet on the way (of the heart) stirs our desire for liberation among the many obligations, duties and attachments we have created out of fear. We call Her the FREEDOM-SEEKER.
Gemini asks us to break free from the previously established rules and regulations that no longer serve us, shaking up our attachment to the old constructs of what we believed to be “our reality.” With an awakening to greater levels and experiences of power and freedom, we will look to direct our energies more responsibly in alignment with our true values.
Consider your present obligations and whether or not they resonate with who you have become. If you must attend to them, can you shift your mindset so that you bring love and responsibility to the commitments you’ve made?
Next we have our loyal friend the WITNESS walking right alongside us now, observing what we have created in areas such as our relationships, finances, careers, health and overall well-being.
The more we are present to our illusions, our fears, our disappointments and our hurts and allow the grace of unconditional love to heal our hearts and find the blessin’s in the lessons, we encounter the compassionate Witness who acknowledges those parts of us that are still suffering as well as the pain of others walking with us at this time.
What areas of your life need the Witness to come along, giving you the eyesight and the insight to where new choices could be made?
And last but not least, I put my arms around the Fool for Love, one of my favourite Gemini sidekicks, always quick to cut through the darkness, clearing chaos and confusion with his ability to light the torches of truth and love.
He relishes his role as the Sacred Fool, eager to have you trust him to play and entertain when you need him to. His belly-laugh medicine is strong, providing courage and strength to ease the mind, so we can access the heart to find new sources of inspiration, faith and hope.
I think it is important to honour the wonderful human technology that is our mind, but during this Gemini Full Moon, I hear the call louder than ever to live the way of our hearts–a revolutionary act it would seem in this age of information.
Inviting the archetypes to engage with us lifts us vertically–friends with the very best benefits–so we can gain a fresh perspective on the choices we have made and the story we are currently unfolding.
And what a waste it would be to have been gifted free will to create our stories from love and light and then choose not to use it.
Always the Fool for Love (one daring choice at a time),
P.S. OH MY GOODNESS!! Those who entered the Accountability Challenge introduced in last week’s email–thank you!!!! I was so inspired by your intentions and your willingness to take action.
