The last 5 days Symbols for the Sun have been about communication in different ways. A very Gemini theme.
14 GEMINI: two people living far apart in telepathic communication
15 GEMINI: two Dutch children talking
16 GEMINI: a woman activist in an emotional speech dramatizing her cause
17 GEMINI: the head of a robust youth changes into that of a mature thinker
18 GEMINI: two Chinese men speaking Chinese in a western crowd
But so telling about what is going on around the world. Emotional speeches. Robust youth. Communicating in different languages (not communicating universally but only within your own group). Its a lot of Babel if you ask me.
This morning I listened to in interview that was rant with Communication Issues. It was Face The Nation on CBS. The Reporter (who I could not identify to save my life) was talking to Attorney General Bill Barr. She asked loaded question after loaded question. He refuted each one at its core, yet she continued her point of view.
In this time when we are being asked to “listen” and “have conversations” it is strange that the people in the media have trouble doing exactly that.
It is remarkable.
And through this weekend, we have been under the energetics of the Full Moon. By some called the Strawberry Moon. By others the Blood Moon. Blood Moon seems to be in order given my comments about The Omen yesterday. Just an entirely creepy sensation. Creepy times.
Today, the moon is opposing Mercury. This carries with it a lot of energy. As stated on Astromatrix:
With the opposition, friction between Moon and Mercury results in emotions, instincts, and feelings pulling in one direction, and rationality, logic, and conscious mind moving in an opposite direction. This inner disharmony is then reflected through projection onto the external world, influencing your relationships. While this inner division remains unresolved, relationship conflicts will persist. Decision-making can prove difficult, and you may rely on others deciding for you, as you cannot determine which path to follow, whether to choose instincts, emotions, or rationality. Inner unity, when both messages coincide, is a rare experience for you. This situation can stultify actions and choices, distorting perceptions and judgment. Confusion often results, with regular changes of mind or heart which disturb and disrupt relationships. Sometimes attempting to break through an impasse may force you to act impulsively and instinctively with variable results. Equally, responses can be emotionally biased, devoid of rational evaluation or common sense. Alternatively, Mercury can dominate, with an extremely cold perception which succeeds mainly in temporarily denying any emotional feeling at all. You can be insensitive and offensive to others, unaware of a lack of tact, sensitivity, and diplomacy, although you are quick to rise to others who criticize you personally. Like everyone else, there are times (many, many times) when you will be ‘wrong’ in life, as no-one is infallible. You may need to learn how to admit mistakes, however. Increasingly imbalanced, unconscious emotional patterns can distort inner messages and life perceptions, diminishing your ability for clear thinking and clear communication. Compulsive talking can occur as a compensation for effective relationship, although what is often noticeable is that this lacks depth and content. What is required is self-understanding and integration between your emotional and rational nature. Clarity and awareness is needed regarding these lunar patterns of emotional need, dependency, and the reliance of security and stability. With the Mercury influence, rationality and objectivity are required to help rebalance inner disharmony. The challenge is to integrate these two opposing messages. Until some progress is made, self-expression can be restricted and distorted. Favoring either planet creates conflict; honoring each planet is the route to wholeness, and the key to resolving this psychological imbalance.
Its a lot to consider given these already tenuous times.
