Flower Essences for the Gemini Moon

Gemini the journalist and storyteller wants to gather the facts and details and enjoys classifying the data into categories and themes. She is developing the ability to reason and articulate clearly. This may involve participating in activities that strengthen the left brain such as formal education, speaking, writing, listening and teaching.

This chatty and curious student is on a quest to learn and gather a diversity of perspectives so she can break free from limited patterns of thinking. She enjoys relationships that are based on proximity such as with siblings, neighbors and housemates. As an open minded messenger she is often clever, sociable, and witty. Similar to a transistor radio following a signal, she follows her intuition by pursuing her eclectic interests which may include short trips, classes and workshops. Her path of inquiry can seem erratic and incongruous but it eventually leads to patterns of knowledge that make sense holistically once all the parts of the puzzle are gathered.

My housemates seems to love karoake and binaural beats for this reason!

Flower Essences for the Libra Moon

During the Libra moon it can be a good time to explore the dynamics of relating. How do you reconcile diverse needs and deal with conflict? Are you able to develop supportive relationships and collaborations? How do you give and receive love?

Libra, the peacemaker, is concerned with developing harmony and cooperation through relationships with others. This social and charming team player appreciates learning about herself by exploring opposing viewpoints. She avoids projection by understanding that the relationships she surrounds herself with offer a mirror to her own self understanding.

Charming and popular Libra wants to create balance but she may find her way to the middle ground by exploring extremes. She is learning to negotiate fair and equal exchanges. This diplomat develops mutual understanding and compromise through a good debate. Her need to find inner peace and equilibrium may inspire her to explore the expression of beauty through artistry, fashion and music.

Libra’s tendency to prioritize the viewpoint of others can lead to ineffective patterns of people pleasing, codependency or superficiality. She needs to be careful not to make choices out of a lack of inner conviction, for the validation of social approval, or the need to be needed. When she is firm about her own needs and desires she avoids shadow Libra qualities such as an aimless debating or appeasing indecisiveness.
