Welcome to Gemini season! The sign of the Twins, the Lovers, duality, communication, and multiple perspectives, brings a surge of mental activity. As we move through to the end of the month, Mercury, which has been in retrograde in its home sign of Gemini and then Taurus, completes its retrograde cycle bringing forth much desired mental clarity & focus.
Our goddess and queen of the show, Venus, moves into its home sign of Taurus on the 28th, heightening our sensory experience of ourselves and the world. Yes, we've been deep in the Taurus field of physical awareness throughout the year.
There is a shift in cosmic energy that makes this felt Taurus energy different, however. As we continue to move out of the thick of the eclipse forest, the Goddess permeates her natural powers throughout our auric field creating a deep sense of inner peace, harmony, and pleasure in stillness. Embody the stillness amidst the chaos of the mind.
On May 30th, we receive the New Moon in Gemini. Your ideas get to sharpen in the coming weeks, bringing forth new creation to your projects and endeavors. Stay open to new ideas and new perspectives.
It is a time to experience the possibility of grounded stability in the body amidst the inherent duality of our reality that creates mental chaos.
ASTROLOGICAL ACTIVATION EMBODIMENT RITUALS
Suggested crystals to work with:
- Blue Aventurine: Heals emotional & mental bodies. Calms fiery emotions & reinforces decisiveness. Aids in authentic expression and communication.
- Jade: Powerful physical healer, strengthens & soothes the nervous system bringing emotional balance, stability & well-being. Connection with the Kidneys boots sexual Chi and empowers orgasmic energy.
The following rituals can be done solo or in partnership. The astrological key here is to ground the mental body through the senses and intellectual stimulation. Create a sacred space in your playroom by lighting some candles, burning incense, placing an altar, & playing sexy music.
- Intellectual Intimacy: Gemini is the archetype of the dualistic nature of our mental experience. To a story there's always another side. And to that side of the story there are yet more sides. Truth is a matter of perspective. Gemini teaches us this. When you can communicate from an understanding that there's always a new fact that can alter opinions, you engage your intellect. The mind is a powerful stimulant. An intellectually stimulating conversation with someone, especially an intimate partner, can stimulate your yoni as well.
The invitation here is to create an intention and container to have a stimulating conversation with someone on a topic you are passionate about and share your own unique perspective. Charge up your Blue Aventurine Wands or Jade Yoni Egg by holding them in your hands while you engage in this conversation. The energy transfers through into the crystal, charging it up with the stimulation. Be open to seeing things from multiple viewpoints and invite your partner to do the same. See where the conversation flows with the intention to then connect on a physical, sensual level, using the wand during your sexy playtime.
You can do this practice by yourself by voice recording your own thoughts on a topic. Charge up your yoni egg in your hand as you do so. Open yourself to channel information and challenge yourself to oppose your own opinions through a different possible perspective. Then listen back to your own voice and allow the vulnerability of hearing yourself processing out loud stimulate you physically as well. Insert your yoni egg and notice the effects in your body, auric field, and downloads that come through.
- Throat to Yoni Connection: This one will be a repeat of the last blog post, but still incredibly relevant to the astrological energies. The invitation? BE AUDIBLE DURING LOVE MAKING! When you make noises and activate your throat chakra, your yoni activates along with it.
Breathe in through your nose and exhale audibly through your mouth. The key here is to MAKE A SOUND! Release judgement and be as loud or as quiet as your body feels called. Moan, groan, sigh, whatever it is, vocalize your exhales. Notice the throat-pelvic floor connection strengthening with every new breath.
- Dirty Talk: Often an oversight in love-making, is the stimulating power of talking dirty in bed. Whether partnered or solo, allow your mind to take flight and whisper sweet (or not-so-sweet) nothings into your partner's ears (or your own!). Engaging your mind during sex by communicating what is happening in the moment or what you would like to happen next in the moment, can be incredibly erotic and enticing. It’s a great way to explore fantasies with yourself or a partner and communicate to your lover how you would like to be loved.
- If you're new to talking dirty in bed, follow these guidelines to get comfortable:
- State what you are going to do (i.e.: I can’t wait to taste you)
- State what you are doing (i.e.: You taste so delicious)
- State what you did (i.e.: I loved having you in my mouth and tasting you)
- Finger Play: As Gemini rules the fingers and hand, this is a great opportunity to explore all the foreplay that's possible with your hands and fingers:
o Caress your partner's body parts or your own with your hands. Allow your hands to guide the touch and explore the body.
o Use the tips of your fingers only to explore areas of the neck, face, back, shoulder, and arms.
o Give yourself or your partner soft caress along the arms using your fingers and fingertips.
o Explore moving in synchronicity with your partner through contact improv movement allowing your hands and arms to explore each other. You can also do the same alone.
o Allow the breath to guide physical movement.
o Use your fingers to explore your yoni internally for extended periods of time. If partnered, create a play session where the intention will only be to focus on using your partner's hands and fingers to explore your yoni and nothing else. Have an integration conversation afterwards sharing your experiences.
Stay deeply connected to your body. Listen to what it desires to touch, to smell, to taste, to feel. Indulge in the multitude of sensory experiences and allow your senses to guide you deep into ecstatic orgasmic states <3
