*Vision* Co-Creation *Communication*
Gemini Sun in conjunction with the Moon in Gemini, will be guiding us to examine how we communicate with those closest to us, where we might be talking, when we should be listening, and vice versa. It is a time of reckoning, moving past self-imposed walls of miscommunication on a soul level, with yourself and others.
Intellectual Intuition. Feeling on a "thinking level". Examining thinking patterns- watching in the third person. Going through the motions of intellectual back scratching. Awakening to your own personal "genius". Vision of clarity. Release through communications~ music, poetry, journaling, reaching out to someone you haven't heard from in awhile. Deeper Studies; Learning a new way to express yourself, for an expanded sense of personal experience. Cosmic Communication; Vivid Dreams.
Gemini rules the mind. The moon rules the emotions of inner man. Thus, the combination of the Sun and Moon in Gemini creates a powerful focus on the exchange of thoughts, learning, and communicating. The Eternal Student.
The central theme of development of the Self is found in studying, communicating, absorbing knowledge, and information, then imparting it upon others. Constantly exploring and learning something new.

I have always been full of questions."
