Mystic Marijuana: Full Moon in Gemini

Seeing the moon’s fullest face under my sun sign of Gemini has brought a new spark in a slow-burning candle of long-term personal and artistic goals. By nature, I am a person focused on the long-term—I tend to the garden of my life with care, always planting seeds for one plant while watering another, and harvesting yet another. This method, paired with the whimsical nature of Gemini’s, means that about things that matter to me—my heart, my art, my body, my communities....my destiny—I have a clear vision of where it is I want to end up, or rather, what feelings I want to arrive at.

Dreaming under this full moon in Gemini, I hear very loudly the echoes of my quietest childhood daydreams. It is easy to be coerced off your highest path, a road filled with precious jewels hidden in a jungle of mysterious darkness, and tricked into taking the neon-lit path of convenience, stifled curiosity, and veiled misery. But as womxn of the moon and incarnations of our ancestors, we are not so easily jaded or defeated to abandon our purpose.

{As a Black womxn. As a Black womxnist. As an empath. As an artist. As a healer. As a social connector.} It is more times than not draining to look at the “realities” that others have created and forced upon me. It is hard to fight the feeling of defeat in comparing resources of a small, BIWOC business to a corporation. It is maddening to know those same resources came from my ancestors’ minds and vaginas. I could choose to feel vindictive toward love, bristle from old wounds, and refuse to let others love me. However, we all have to decide if we are to be scared by “reality” and settle into a lesser position than we should, sink into the righteous, though uncreative energy of becoming bitter, or stay open in our hearts, minds, and bodies to our own UNIQUE, ETERNAL, INTUITIVE POWER.

Recently, I have been undergoing massive shifts in all aspects of my life—from stepping into a new career, re-locating cities, becoming a godmother, living in love, and taking on new creative and business endeavors. Usually, I feel overwhelmed when I feel everything stable coming loose from underneath me, however over the past couple months I have been steadily repeating the words:

“LOVE + SMOOTH TRANSITIONS ”

This is to remind myself to stay open and grateful for all that’s in my life and heart, and in transition to be grateful for everything leaving me and everything coming to me.

Under this full moon in Gemini , I am reminded that I am already worthy of everything coming. I am encouraged to stay open in my heart and be flexible to adventure and any “detours” on my journey. Under this lunar glow I understand that when I love myself and let other people really love me, I open myself to an even greater love from the universe. When I trust my ideas and execution, I see myself in the pure vision of my childhood dreams and my highest soul callings.

To be in transition can make us want to retreat toward comfort, toward small ways of the past. However, I encourage us all to enter Sagittarius season with a burning heart of love and bravery, rather than huddle around a dying flame of the past. Trust that what’s in your heart will guide you and do not cripple yourself by doubting your intuition and creativity. You are worthy of the oceans of change washing upon you.

Love + Smooth Transitions,
