ASTROLOGY ARTICLE — Newly Discovered Aspects of Nature, Health & Humanity
Our Gemini New Moon taps directly into the order and symmetry found within Nature and in our relationship to the principles that bind us to life. I’m referring to the order found within the living intelligence of Nature and the natural laws that are operating within our world.
This New Moon is about discovering new aspects of harmony that are required to live in balance with nature. This harmony becomes fundamental to our understanding of how to move forward, with Nature supporting us during our current world events.
The official narrative of our current worldwide pandemic must now come into question with these new energies that are being introduced with our Gemini New Moon. This is especially good news for those who have struggled with maintaining a spiritual perspective that balances the natural order of life, including viruses, with the concept that we need to protect ourselves from nature.
One of the primary principles of astrology is the concept that everything is connected. If this is really true, it’s only natural to ask now, in our current situation, about the connection between nature, health, and humanity.
Nature Teaches Us to See How Everything is Connected
Natural law teaches us that Nature and humanity need to work together to achieve the greatest degree of harmony between the two. The concept of Nature operating within an eco-system of interconnectedness with humanity is not a new concept to astrology.
The very concept of an eco-system is based on the spiritual concept of wholeness, or holistic thinking. This is also a fundamental astrological principle. For the most part, much of science has forgotten this spiritual concept of holism. This is reflected right now, as science continues to develop big pharma approaches to what it means to be healthy.
Our Gemini New Moon is working directly with the knowledge of natural law and a new need for harmony between nature, health, and humanity.
A Physician’s Point of View
As a retired physician, I can tell you from experience that every first-year medical student studies the hidden world of micro-organisms. Inside this hidden-world there are microbes everywhere. One area of this microbiome is the “virome” (the world of viruses). Now here’s where this gets very interesting: The human body has trillions of viruses.
If you think you don’t have trillions of viruses, think again. Here’s an article you might find interesting. (Feel free to skip this link and just read the excerpt below): https://theconversation.com/meet-the-trillions-of-viruses-that-make-up-your-virome-104105
“It may be hard to fathom, but the human body is occupied by large collections of microorganisms, commonly referred to as our microbiome, that have evolved with us since the early days of man. Scientists have only recently begun to quantify the microbiome, and discovered it is inhabited by at least 38 trillion bacteria. More intriguing, perhaps, is that bacteria are not the most abundant microbes that live in and on our bodies. That award goes to viruses.
It has been estimated that there are over 380 trillion viruses inhabiting us, a community collectively known as the human virome. But these viruses are not the dangerous ones you commonly hear about, like those that cause the flu or the common cold, or more sinister infections like Ebola or dengue. Many of these viruses infect the bacteria that live inside you and are known as bacteriophages, or phages for short. The human body is a breeding ground for phages, and despite their abundance, we have very little insight into what all they or any of the other viruses in the body are doing.
I am a physician-scientist studying the human microbiome by focusing on viruses, because I believe that harnessing the power of bacteria’s ultimate natural predators will teach us how to prevent and combat bacterial infections. One might rightly assume that if viruses are the most abundant microbes in the body, they would be the target of the majority of human microbiome studies. But that assumption would be horribly wrong. The study of the human virome lags so far behind the study of bacteria that we are only just now uncovering some of their most basic features. This lag is due to it having taken scientists much longer to recognize the presence of a human virome, and a lack of standardized and sophisticated tools to decipher what’s actually in your virome.”
This excerpt underlines an important point to be made that relates directly to our New Moon in Gemini. We are all connected to nature and we are all a part of the eco-systems of viruses. The fact is we cannot live without viruses.
Moving forward with our Gemini New Moon presents us with a choice related to the archetype of the “Gemini Twins.” Each of us has an individual Gemini choice to make with regard to nature and health. We can either choose to live in harmony with nature and its virome, or we can live in fear and see nature as our enemy.
From an astrological perspective, living wholistically is healthy and incorporates Nature, working with wholism through balance and symmetry. This is the natural order of everything. Everything is connected, even our relationship to viruses.
Medical Astrology and Gemini
Medical astrology studies the integration of nature and humanity within the cycles of wellness and health. Within this discipline there is a strong argument for Gemini ruling our immune system and our relationship to Nature through our immune system as the first and foremost environment with which each of us interacts.
In short, both Mercury and Gemini have a strong connection to how we communicate with all aspects of the world, including Nature.
When considering the principle that “everything is connected,” we should also consider an important lesson from medical astrology that offers a new perspective on nature, health, and humanity. In short, we cannot separate ourselves from Nature.
Our Gemini New Moon is providing humanity the possibility for a new level of integration between our health and Nature. Gemini, being a ruler of information, is a key factor in medical knowledge and the information on how we can stay healthy in our environment.
If we look objectively to what information is currently being censored on social media, we see one specific topic that stands out. This is the issue of wholistic health, especially related to wholistic perspectives on working with the coronavirus. These perspectives are currently being heavily censored. Instead, what is being pushed by the MSM is that we should live in fear of Nature and viruses. We’re hearing “Stay home.” “Don’t go outside.” We’re told “Don’t go to the beach or to the park. We are even told that golf courses are dangerous. (You can insert your own anecdote here:)
Furthermore, we are told that “Vitamins won’t save you and human contact is deadly.” “Avoid the sun, it’s dangerous.” You get the point, right? Humanity has become fearful of nature itself. Nature is now the newest enemy.
From an astrology perspective this does not pass the common sense test of how everything is connected through Nature. In other words, there appears to be a deliberate disconnect from the intelligence of life. However, with our Gemini New Moon, hope is alive and living within Nature, if we can only reconnect to it.
Nature is actually working with us and not against us. Nature is not something to be feared and avoided. This perspective of isolation is a shadow narrative of the Gemini archetype.
For all we know, the successful integration of the coronavirus into our bodies worldwide will be needed to protect us in the future from something that hasn’t yet manifested. We need to always remember that we must always work with Nature and not against it. This is the spiritual approach of integrating our health with the intelligence of Nature, including viruses.
Lessons From Gemini About Our Immune Systems
Our Gemini New Moon is supporting our immune systems, but only if we are able to work with Nature and not against it. Gemini is ruled by Mercury and is commonly associated with communication. It’s your immune system that is constantly communicating with your environment and nature. In this way it’s your immune system that keeps you healthy and in balance. This includes balance with the virome and the trillions of viruses upon which we depend. The coronavirus is just one of the trillions of viruses we must live with. This understanding can easily shift fear into cooperation and connection.
In my first year of medical school we were taught that keeping the human immune system healthy is an important daily activity, akin to working out daily in the gym. We were taught that daily hormones manufactured from vitamin D3 and A are required for our thyroid to function optimally and support our immune system. We were also taught that stress, sugar, and lack of fresh air damages the immune system. This information about the foundations of health and well being has been common knowledge.
The bottom line is that we need to work our immune systems each and every day. We need to daily interact with the microbiome to stay healthy and in balance. Our immune system needs a daily workout for optimal health. The take away is that everyone’s immune system is completely dependent on connecting and interacting with nature and our environment.
What strikes my sensibility as problematic is what the media and political health experts are currently telling us. We are being advised and even ordered on how to limit our interactions with our environment and Nature itself. The problem is that this advice is actually dangerous and damaging to our immune systems. It also violates every principle of wholism upon which spiritual people rely.
The Gemini New Moon Solution
The Gemini solution lies within the concept of discovery. Discovery inspires both hope and cooperation. When we are able to discover the extent and the degree to which “everything is connected” we realize that Nature is our ally. This creates cooperation with the intelligence of life. The shadow of Gemini are facts out of context. This is the shadow of misleading science, which is divorced from principles of wholism. When we discover the limits within these fear-based narratives we’re free to create a new relationship to nature.
The Gemini choice that’s being presented to humanity with this Lunar cycle is the choice of connection and cooperation with life. The alternate choice is to fear nature, including viruses and the unseen world, and even to fear people who aren’t standing the correct number of feet away.
As we move forward with our new understanding of nature, health, and humanity, the daily choices we each make will reinforce one of these contrasting perspectives. Our choices will either emphasize our cooperation with nature, or they will emphasize our fear and our disconnection to it. This a powerful time to think for yourself and own your Gemini ability to connect and integrate more deeply with the world of Nature and viruses.
The positive aspect of Pluto and Jupiter in Capricorn is the structuring of wholeness and the power of the earth sign of Capricorn working through nature in a wholistic way. It’s only the shadow of Capricorn that wants to want to control through the use of fear. The Capricorn shadow also possesses the arrogant belief that humanity can actually control nature.
Saturn in Aquarius is contributing to the need for a new more cooperative relationship with Nature.
Within Gemini there’s a natural desire for information and discovery, but “information” is much more than knowledge from a textbook. Gemini also supports our relationships with Nature in the form of receiving information from our environment. Interacting with our environment is one of the functions of our nervous system.
It gives us our ability to interact with Nature and the world around us using our imagination and our five senses.
Another significance is the exact conjunction of Mercury and Venus at 21° Gemini. What’s interesting here is the theme of 21° Gemini, which is: “AN EMOTIONAL RESPONSE TO A CONTROLLED DISRUPTION.”
This expresses the opportunity for a healthy backlash to inappropriate control within society. This social backlash is also being energized by the entire stellium in Gemini.
This backlash can manifest in two ways. When this backlash is combined with a narrative of fear, we have the ingredients for a Gemini split. Those who want to be controlled by “fear” will be in direct contrast to those who are ready to discover their higher level of connection to Nature and natural law.
The opportunity for the Venus/Mercury direct conjunction is new realizations through the union of the heart (Venus) and mind (Mercury). It is now possible to have a more direct relationship with nature, in balance and in symmetry with health, and humanity’s collective bio-force.
Each New Moon brings to humanity a quality of energy that must be integrated in order for us to evolve at an optimal trajectory. Working with our Gemini New Moon requires you to discover a more profound personal relationship to Nature, your health, and Capricorn’s power of structuring your life around principles of holistic thinking.
Currently there’s an information war against Nature, combined with a message of fear. Our current New Moon is directly exposing this narrative. It is my personal hope that we all discover how to work in greater cooperation with Nature. Viruses are good and necessary in the eco-system of life and the virome. Let’s keep our immune systems strong and realize that Nature is our ally. Everything is connected.
Happy New Moon,
