Gemini Season is here again bringing with it the interplay of light through form. The Soul which began its journey in Aries as a 'point of light in the mind of God', became a beam of light in Taurus, and now divides into multiple beams of light in Gemini. Think of the quality of sunshine playing through the leaves, or the dancing sparkles of light on water and you have the light, playful, fairy-like quality of Gemini. The one becomes many, and the Divine dance has begun.
Don't misunderstand the playfulness of light, indeed a sense of play is in the nature of light and is inherent in the whole of Creation. The apparent superficial quality of Gemini belies his deepest mysteries: the mystery of Life and the mysteries of our Divine purpose as a spiritually awakened Humanity. Gemini is associated with the breath, and indeed the Divine use of the breath, through words and sound is a clue to the deepest mysteries of Gemini.
Gemini has three planetary 'rulers' each of which is important in understanding these deeper mysteries of Gemini. The personality ruler of Gemini is Mercury, the Soul ruler of Gemini is Venus and the Hierarchical ruler of Gemini is the Earth herself. [Esoterically Venus and Earth are said to be sister planets.] Indeed it is through Gemini that Humanity fulfills it's Divine purpose as custodian for Earth and the elemental kingdoms. Gemini connects us to the etheric and the elemental at one and the same time. This apparent sign of duality is actually a sign of multiplicity, connection and communion. Through Gemini we realize our interconnectedness with one another, Earth and her creatures, and all sentient beings.
At the personality level Gemini is ruled by Mercury, the winged messenger of the Gods. Esoterically Mercury is responsible for the Rainbow Bridge, or Antakharana, connecting lower and Higher Mind. It is through Mercury that we learn to connect and commune with our Higher Selves and hear our spiritual calling. It is ultimately through the activity of Mercury, conditioning, expanding and awakening our perception, that we attune to higher consciousness and perceive our Divine Purpose. It is through Mercury that we realize our interconnectedness to one another, that the brotherhood (or sisterhood) of Humanity becomes the body of Humanity as we transcend separatism and realize the Divine Task of Humanity as Custodian of the Earth and her creatures.
