The Full Moon in Gemini perfected in the dark early hours before dawn. This Full Moon illuminates new ways of thinking and making connections that are coming into visibility. Angela Davis writes, “…feminist methodologies impel us to explore connections that are not always apparent. and they drive us to inhabit contradictions and discover what is productive in these contradictions. Feminism insists on methods of thought and action that urge us to think about things together that appear to be separate, and to disaggregate things that appear to naturally belong together.” What might you begin to think together that appear to be separate, and how might you actively engage in disaggregating things that we are conditioned to believe belong together? The Moon moves through the remainder of Gemini with no aspects, then ingresses into Cancer—its domicile—in the evening. In Cancer, the Moon calls us back to our own sensitivities, allowing ourselves to truly feel what we are feeling. By the end of the day, the Moon opposes Jupiter in Capricorn. Our feelings may seem too big or overwhelming, very likely because of the ways they draw our pasts into the present, flooding our systems with cumulative patterns of emotional response that we’ve been carrying across our lifetimes. Try not to resist. Instead, if you find yourself facing feelings that overflow the scale of the present moment, let yourself get soft. Turn in toward the wave and whisper: “I’m listening. What are you trying to teach me?”
