Twelve New Moons,
Twelve Gifts of the Spirit.
Today is the next offering from your Star and Moon,
For they meet every month, and in
Their Spiral Weavings around one another…
You will see sweeping before you,
The Archetypal Dance, the Spiritual Lessons of Life.
For that is what the Zodiac is, it is
The “Circle of the Living Ones”.
They offer Guidance and Help along the path,
It is a Dreaming-Being of Wondrous Meanings,
Of Promises made, of Inspirations and Hope for you too,
All to Illuminate your steps upon the this Wondrous Path,
Your Never-Ending Journey of the Self that is Becoming.
Each New Moon brings you a gift to help lift you on your path. Each of these twelve gifts is special and integral to your fulfillment of your destiny. For you are destined to become on Earth a fully functioning Human, an Illumined being, Self-Awakened and so both willing and capable of being a Self-Conscious, Co-Creator of this Cosmos.
But there is something special about this Third Gift of Spirit, something that speaks to the importance of a threshold you crossed over long ago. You passed through a Portal of Awareness, and that Quickening created the means by which you could begin to take up this steadier, self-made climb back to the stars. It is this Gift of Spirit that is the Integral Source of that which will ultimately bring you to the promise of your eventual Self-Mastery and Self-Determination.
For it is in this Third Stage of Unfoldment that you are reminded of the gift that was imparted long ago by the “gods”, who walked among you and who were there to pass on to you the Gift that they too had once received from those who came before them. This Awesome Gift (and Responsibility) is the Jewel that is Self-Awareness. It was their Sacred Sacrifice for you that began the Quickening of your Spiritual Powers of Reason, Intelligence and Critical Thinking that put you firmly upon the noble path of becoming a Wisdom-Keeper too.
For it is the Gift of Gemini that brings to you the precious faculty of Self-Reflective Awareness, and it is this ability, “to think about thinking”, to be able to “step outside” of yourself and consider the why, how and what of your consciousness, it is this that permits you to be able to compare and contrast many points of view and to ultimately see and understand this Universe as it truly is. That you will know that all the Beings or Life-Forms which in their totality form the very substance of this Universe, that all of THAT is to be experienced as it truly is, a Wondrously Multi-Faceted Jewel of Spiritual Consciousness that, for lack of a better word, you call God.
It is from this that you are able to encompass and understand that there are innumerable points of views and perspectives, and that you must come to experience and understand as many as you can if you are to know yourself and your world as you must…For you are here to grow and learn, to become a Conscious Co-Creator of this Cosmos, and to do this you must unfold your Divine potential and become awakened, illumined and wise.
At any one time in your journey, you will find your understanding shaped and molded by your particular point of view or paradigm. This window on your world, this lens or facet through which you perceive is formed by many influences, by your family, your society and culture, by your educational and life experiences, and many other factors too. No matter what you may do at any one time, you will shine this point of view upon the phenomena of the world around you, and just like a bright light, you will illumine what is “real” to you. But you will equally create and cast a heavy shadow too. You will hide or obscure what you will then be unable to see or perceive, and it will remain foreign to you. And it may if somehow hinted at, it may come to be experienced as a very real threat to what is actually your self-blinded, parochial view of Reality. That you will find that your Fears are formed in the Shadow that you create by what you do not yet understand or perceive.
The Gift of Gemini is here to remind you of what lies within you. That in order to Grow and Understand you must be open, and that you and your mind must ever be like a “child” at heart. You must remain agile and adept, constantly seeking, searching, questioning (and self-questioning). You must ever seek to keep adjusting, shifting and moving your perspective so as to eliminate your shadows…You must remain open in order to grow…You must remain eager to experience and know more...You must remain essentially curious…about Everything.
You must question yourself and your assumptions…constantly. For it is by this that you will develop that more well-rounded (humble and wise) approach of a seeker who keeps seeking, a knower who understands there is more that is unknown. You will, as you grow into your Depth of Understanding learn to follow the Spiritual Injunction of those who Know and Serve, the so-called “Lonely Ones”. You will know, accept and so understand that there is only one Way and one Path, and so you will accept and understand that you must “Walk On”...
The Gift of the New Moon in Gemini is your Gift of Eternal Youth…
That within you is a Spark of the Divine…
An Abiding “Presence” who watches over you…
Who Inspires and Guides your every step…
Along a Golden Path of Becoming…
This is your Journey as a Spark of the Divine…
Finding your way back,
To your Home in the Stars.
