The Gemini Twins Constellation
Reflections ~ Gemini and the Goodwill Festival
Humans are a duality of spirit and form, of soul and personality. How do we unify these polarities and become whole? The constellation Gemini assists us in this process.
The emanations of Gemini keep the interplay of energies between dualities active and flowing so that eventually they reach synthesis and unity. Gemini is "the constellation of the resolution of duality into a fluid synthesis." Gemini is the constellation that forms a triangle with each pair of opposing constellations ... the 12 constellations can then synthesize and become the 6. The ongoing evolution of humanity's consciousness is dependent on the emanations of our zodiac, the wheel of Life, and fundamentally upon the synthesizing quality of the Gemini constellation.
The Gemini Goodwill Festival is uniquely linked to humanity and spiritual aspiration. Why? It is said that the constellation Gemini along with its ruling planets and the Great Lodge were responsible for setting up the necessary stimulation and magnetic fields between the animal and spiritual kingdoms, which in turn produced individualization and the human kingdom. In other words, the human kingdom was born of the animal and spiritual kingdoms with the help of the fluid synthesizer, Gemini. Therefore, humans are inherently spiritual and born to aspire toward their divine nature. Humanity's spiritual aspiration is enlivened during the sign of Gemini and potently activated during the Goodwill Full Moon Festival.
In addition Gemini is the entrance for the energy of Sirius. The Love of Deity (2nd Ray) pours through Gemini into our solar system. Within humanity this Love stimulates right human relations and unity with the divine. It is said the Cosmic Christ, embodier of the Love aspect of Deity, appears on the golden triangle formed by Gemini (the head), the Great Bear (one foot) and the Pleiades (the other foot). Hearing the cry of the Mother (Virgo), the Seeker (Sagittarius) and the submerged fish (Pisces) the golden triangle morphs into the Mutable Cross.
Both Mercury and Venus are rulers of Gemini.
Mercury (exoteric ruler) conditions the personality life and creates Divine messengers. Its emanations first stimulate the concrete mind to distinguish between the self and not self. They then illuminate the higher mind creating a link between the personality and the Soul.
The emanations of Venus (esoteric ruler) helps one begin to understand the causes and conditions of harmony and conflict and thereby lovingly and wisely link the lower mind to the higher mind.
The Human Kingdom's evolution is uniquely linked to the fluid synthesis of Gemini. Emanations of spiritual aspiration, cooperation, right relations, unity and a divine sense of the Whole are focused through the constellation Gemini, and potently impress humanity during the sign of Gemini (May 20 - June 20) and its Goodwill Full Moon Festival.
Tune to the cooperative Gemini Twins. Though opposites, representing the form (Castor) and spirit (Pollux), they innately work together for the benefit of the whole. United they are and do something greater than either can alone.
Imagine humankind within every nation uniting to express the divine potential that benefits all!
