The season of Gemini was traditionally a time where the duties of farming were not so pressing, and people could finally socialize, exchange news, take short trips and discuss techniques for hunting, cooking, farming and living. This year we have a special entry into the season of the twins with a retrograde in its ruling messenger planet, mercury. Translation: we are given a rare chance to focus a little more precisely and with greater innovation on those topics, projects, friendships, and hobbies, making what edits and additions are necessary for a more progressive and sustainable enterprise. Gemini is a teacher as well as a student, examining the growth process, and constantly reflecting on what changes could cause a more profound evolution, and inspire a more logical yet forward thinking method of inter-relating. Partnership is still the theme this month, with just more of a laser like focus than ever, meant to cut through to the ripe heart of the matter, removing the last of whatever remains in the way of divine union.

"We then become witnesses to the development of the human soul; the emergence of the New Man, who will no longer be the victim of events, but, thanks to his clarity of vision , will become able to direct and to mold the future of humankind."
Maria Montessori, The Absorbent Mind
