With the sun in Gemini, life and light is buzzing. Teeming - talking.
Gemini, as the twins Castor and Pollux , the constellation in the sky and the corresponding myth, were inseparable.
One mortal - one immortal switching back and forwards constantly, passing, relaying, exchanging - ideas, objects, ultimately life force.
When both were alive each was goading the other - in play, in jest, in adventures yet not to harm, often for noble end.
During a collective scuffle Castor (the mortal counterpart ) was killed. Pollux in devastated state bargained with Zeus that they continue to live their inseparable roll. A bargain was struck, creating a perpetual cycle, between the underworld and the Olympian heights . Never in the same place at the same time but perpetually connected. Within the Gemini sensibility is this depth, this constant longing for the lost twin and passing between realms, as with their Patron Ruler Hermes. Gemini, archetypally, weaves webs tacking between nodes usually overlooked as connected. So we see this mirrored seasonally short , swift, ongoing interactions between all of life, sharing, exchanging substance to conjure more life into being.
Gemini within your Astrological chart speaks to this capacity and sensibility, as well as the inbuilt longing, not necessarily literal, but certainly an atmospheric sense for a lost - longed for counterpart. Gemini currently, collectively is strong and present.
With the Gemini New Moon Eclipse just passed, perhaps parts of life are becoming de-linked in order to re-link anew .
Linking and de-linking is the Gemini spirit par excellence, if a feeling of unravelling is current, which is the present sky story from multiple Planetary players, stay with - trusting the un-ravelling web will re-weave again, and so on and so forth .
