A Course in Miracles teaches us enlightenment is a journey without distance from the head to the heart. Now no sign has a monopoly on enlightenment but the transits this week occur in signs which govern both the head and the heart.
Up first is Monday’s New Moon in intellectual Gemini helping us practice the best of the “head” where we can engage with more mindfulness, strong communication skills, and active listening. Queer people know words matter. When spoken with aspiration, we can change a heart. When spoken carelessly, we can damage others. I can’t stress how critically important the right cognition is towards living the most meaningful life and the New Moon in Gemini is giving us all the opportunity to think higher, speak more clearly, and listen without the appetite to interrupt and speak.
The very next day, Mercury enters the emotion ocean of Cancer giving the zodiac the language of the heart. We’ll want to use our consciousness to understand the Cancerian ruled topics of belonging, emotional safety, home, and chosen/family of origin. Like it or not, we learn - and sometimes not through the best teachers - the most life-defining experiences at home. From adult attachment which qualifies our relationship health, defense mechanisms, love languages, and more. Mercury in Cancer is the education towards understanding what we learned from our family, how we can strengthen where they got it right, forgive where they got it wrong, and learn the correction so we can be the adults we’re capable of.
The weekend takes a more mischievous turn when Love Goddess Venus enters Gemini which makes the smarter, articulate, and cheeky types the most attractive this month. This is a transit to send cute Gemini texts or even love letters if you feel so inclined. After we hopefully learned about love as practice throughout Venus in Taurus, Venus in Gemini helps us profess our love and inspired our partners to wrap the right language around their love, too.
