Third Quarter Moon Phase: realign, revise

Moon in Gemini

Ruling Wisdom Goddess: Bhairavi (Goddess of the Heart)

Skill: open your heart

Negative Imprint: selfishness and selfish motives, blind to light, distrust, gloom and doom outlook, insensitivity to other's feelings, over-involved in other's lives and neglecting one's own life, unrealistic and unnatural standards

Positive Imprint: beauty, simplicity, repair, self-care, release from stress or distress, heart-healing, re-calibration, refreshment, improved communication, reward for hard work or commitment, signs of the future

The bombastic energetics of this lunar month have produced the need to stand tall and strong like rock formations towering over a deep canyon.  The universe has asked us to not only be standing stones, but also singing stones.  Our "inner tune" - our personal energetic frequency - has been linking with other's tunes, sending reverberations aligned with the value and beauty of life.  It's a circuit of booming love and it continues to resonate through Wednesday.

At the same time, this lunar month's energies have enabled pain and trauma in the heart to pour out.  Healing is taking place, creating room for new opportunities and paths to open.  The lunar month beginning Monday, August 25, 2014, will lead us toward these golden potentials.  Great change is afoot like a lotus flower opening in the heart.

But preparations are needed and today's preparations involve gauging situations, feelings, thoughts, circumstances, conditions, and events, and then repairing them or performing maintenance.  Objectivity and powers of critical analyses are very keen today.  The primary benefit comes in seeing how to repair or improve interpersonal communication.  We want to take care not too let all of this analysis and evaluation become out of balance.  Be aware of the potential for harsh criticism and judgment (from self or others).

Harsh criticism and judgment is unnecessary and is not embraced at all when the Moon is in Gemini.  Gemini energy is hyper-sensitive to anything that hints at rejection.  This is especially true for those with the Black Moon in Gemini.  (Remember that since the Black Moon was conjunct the New Moon in Leo, each time the Moon enters a sign this month, those with the Black Moon in that sign feel it the most.  The Moon is in Gemini today, so those with the Black Moon in the Gemini-Sagittarius polarity are the focus for the "death and rebirth" energy of the Black Moon.  To find the sign of your natal Black Moon, look up your birthday in the Appendix of my book on the Black Moon available for free on the Books tab at

In a most welcome way, today's energy strives to release us from something that has stressed our psyches and bodies.  Light codes swirl to infuse and strengthen us.  You may find yourself saying, "Finally!" about something.  This may be something that has been a long time coming.  If you have felt stuck in some way, the boost you need is on tap today.  The only thing required of us is receptivity.

We endeavor to always keep it real, but today the purest and simplest of things to refresh and realign us.  The ancient ways call us.

Temper the harshness that can come with heightened powers of analysis today with gentle approaches.  Gently receive.  Let a space in your heart open.  Facilitate the transition into new energies.
