New Moon in Gemini ~ BE the Honey Bee

Yes, the New Moon in Gemini is tomorrow, June 3rd at 3:02 am PST (6:02 am EST). Gemini's have been described as honey bees moving from flower to flower collecting all the information they can in the world in order to make sense of their purpose. Gemini is an air sign ruled by the planet Mercury, the planet of the mind and communication.

The honey bee is a symbol of extracting the sweetness of life. They share with us the promise that is we but pursue our dreams, no matter how great, they can be fulfilled.

Air signs teach us to find a way through ~ as the wind ~ by penetrating and creating a subtle yet far-reaching influence. This is a time to open up space for your imagination and to 'breathe' inspiration into your body.

Here are a few thoughts for preparing for your ritual:

  • When creating your altar and sacred space use a feather to fan the smoke ('air') from incense, palo santo or sage, over your altar, space and yourself. Or use a flute or horn (something that takes air to create the music) for cleansing your space.
  • Colors to use are yellows, blues or silver.
  • You can also add fragrant flowers or an essential oil to bring scent into the air.
  • Air is associated with iron and copper, so it would be good to wear these jewelry items or place them on your altar.

Meditation can make life sweeter! Here are a few short meditations to move air ~ one in speaking the other in breathing:

BODY MEDITATION ~ this only takes a few minutes but is very enlightening:

  • Sit down and tell yourself a truth out loud, such as I love to paint. Go inward and notice how your body feels when you tell yourself a truth.
  • Get up and do something around the house for just one minute ~ no more.
  • Sit down again and say to yourself out loud, I hate to paint. Notice how your body responds to this message ~ something happens in your body when you tell yourself a lie ~ get to know that response.

With practice ~ this exercise will help you to discriminate your body’s wisdom and teach you to follow your truth.

BREATHING Match your inhales and exhales.

  • Take in a breath ~ a normal, comfortable breath. As you do this count how long it takes you, it may be to the count of 3, 4 or 5. Then exhale for the same count. Do this for 1 minute or up to 3 minutes. Setting a timer is a good idea so that you can stay focused on your breathing. When you are done notice how you feel in your body.

This is a simple and lovely exercise to bring you in back into your body and connect.

May these sweet meditations show you the journey, carry your dreams forward.

New Moon Wishes to each you,
Moon Mama
