Gemini New Moon: Sorting Through the Mind

Gemini New Moon: Sorting Through the Mind
Gemini, the sign of the Twins, is all about the Mind and how we use it.  And once again, we have to remember that the Mind includes our hearts as well as our intellect.   We really do have two minds: our metaphorical feminine brain and our factual masculine brain.  The task we need to undertake for the Gemini New Moon is to bring these two brains together so that we begin to perceive the deepest realities of our life and our world. 
 
The ancient myths of Gemini speak of twins, originally the Sun and Moon. Seemingly hostile to each other, they work together to build a mysterious city.  One of my favorite authors, Charles Williams, often spoke of the metaphor of ‘the city’.  For him it symbolized Divine Order, not an order of restraint or convenience, but an Order that gave rise to sublime Beauty and Splendor, like the deep instinctual order of the archetypes of the collective unconscious.      

The alternation of daylight and darkness expresses the dance of life here on Earth: opposites that are different and yet complementary, ebbing and flowing like the tide.  Two heavenly Lights, or types of consciousness, which build awareness and collective consciousness, which build the mysterious City. First we have to create that City within us by blending these two lights, these two types of consciousness.  Then we can create that Divine City in the world.

Herein we find the original stories that people told themselves about their universe.  They saw that our world was made up of two powers, equal and yet different. One offers a black and white perception of the world, solid and steady.  The other a mysterious, constantly changing perception, creating gray areas that call for imagination.  Two ways of perceiving the world: the Moon (the unconscious) and Sun (ego-consciousness) can be seen together during the day, while at night, the Moon rules the sky along with the Stars (cosmic order). This makes the Moon the mediator between the heavens and our earth.

Our solar patriarchal culture has banished us from the Night and with it, a feminine type of consciousness, the consciousness of the Imagination, that is connected to the deep Divine Order of the Cosmos.  We are just waking up to its importance for our survival as a species.  Our poets, dreamers and mystics have tried to give us an awareness of this type of consciousness, but in many ways it is watered down, just like seeing the Moon in the daytime sky waters down the nighttime Moon’s impact on us.

To reclaim the full power of the Moon’s Light, we have to experience it for ourselves.  We have to go into the darkness of the unconscious and listen to our images, our intuitions and our feelings – the organs of perception of feminine consciousness and our right-brain.  Then we have to bring those images back to consciousness and use our left-brain to listen to what these impressions are saying about life.  Just like working with a dream, we can cut to the essence of what is happening in our life and our thoughts and desires. 

We have to re-balance our left-brain society by learning to access our right-brain wisdom, because when we only perceive the world through the ‘facts of life’ we can document and prove, we are left with a dead world that offers us no meaning.  We end up with the waters of the Gulf polluted, the wildlife struggling for survival, and no ideas about how to solve the problem. 

When we learn how these two types of consciousness work together, we will be able to transform our lives, solve our collective problems and change our society.  This Gemini New Moon is our chance to plant the intention to do this.

Until Next Time,

Sweet Dreams!
