The Weird And Whacky World Of Gemini At The Moment: The Sun, Mercury And Mars Hamming It Up
The Sabian Symbol for the Sun is Gemini 9: A MEDIEVAL ARCHER STANDS WITH THE EASE OF ONE WHOLLY SURE OF HIMSELF, BOW IN HAND, HIS QUIVER FILLED WITH ARROWS
So, the Sun is asking that we have an aim that is sure and true – are we following through on that aim? Staring down that arrow towards the bull’s eye we want to hit? It’s a bit difficult at the moment with Mercury retrograde…
Here’s a pic of a woman with her bow and arrow… maybe we need to strip bare and admit things to ourselves… maybe we need to change our focus… for some, perhaps there’s a need to realign ourselves with our intended outcomes… possibilities, rewards, etc.
This Symbol implies the ability of being able to take aim at something and achieving a bull’s eye, straight at the target. You need to be sure of what you want, to make sure your aim is true, arm yourself and then go after what you want. Your situation is one that requires skill, focus and knowledge of local conditions. There is no need to just rush forward hoping for the best, as this will only leave you feeling inadequate when you do find something. Compose yourself for a moment and realize that you have the ammunition and the sure marksmanship before taking aim and committing yourself.
Make a strategy. Hit the target. Being armed and ready. Getting to the point. Accuracy and strength. Sending a message true and clear. Skills and confidence. Warriors
The Caution: Going into battle unprepared. Overconfidence in a mission. Coming from a position of attack. Being trigger-happy. The thug. Being cocky, pushy and threatening.
So, Mercury retrograde is on Gemini 10: AN AIRPLANE DIVES TOWARD THE EARTH AS THOUGH FALLING
This situation implies an ability to be able to play with and defy gravity while maintaining a sense of being in control and able to pull out of difficult situations. Your situation may seem to be heading for disaster, but perhaps you can still be in control, and, at the right moment, you’ll be able to pull out of the nosedive and save the day. The question is: do you really always have an adequate grip on the controls? Are you, or is someone else, actively working against people’s best interests? Imagine yourself regaining control, physical, mentally, emotional or spiritually and pull yourself out of the nose dive and you’ll become stronger and will enjoy the experience at the same time.
Plunging into experiences without thought of ramifications. If you become conscious you may be protected (and saved) at the last moment. Daredevil stunts. Depression.
The Caution: Refusing help even though disaster is imminent. Free falls, defying gravity and the consequences. Shakeups. Neglect of physical realities. Crashing and burning.
It doesn’t sound like that ‘Arrow’ of Gemini 9 has much straight and true trajectory at the moment. How can we aim straight and true when Mercury, the ruler of Gemini, is retrograde and going into a nose dive?
Mars is probably pushing us further, having been over these degrees in the last week or so. Mars is on Gemini 13: WORLD FAMOUS PIANIST GIVING A CONCERT PERFORMANCE
This Symbol speaks of the need to be able to show one’s talents, skills or unique abilities to others, whether it’s in a ‘Performance’, or through just being oneself. In the situation facing you, it is not always enough to know that you are highly skilled, or have others say how wonderful you are, the proof is in expressing those skills in the real world and creating something as a result. The ‘Performance’ should spring from a love of what one is doing, whether it is music, performing, speaking or some other form of expression. True rewards come from being well rehearsed and prepared to share your talent with others as well as acknowledging and sharing the talents of others.
Smugness versus talent. A validation of social standing. Hands-on creativity. Singing. Music. Playing out front or in the band. Having an adoring public. Repertoires.
The Caution: Relying on past success. Not putting in day to day practice. The need for applause and acclaim to validate one’s existence. Inflated egos demanding attention.
The message of Mars could be – can’t they see how talented I, we, you are? Won’t they validate my artistic abilities, my beauty, my ability to stick with something long enough to perfect it as much as I have? (I am speaking in the first person because, let’s face it, Mars can be like that – where is the ‘I’ in your picture?)…
