Saturday is the last new moon (18 degrees Gemini) before summer. “Let instability do its work” is the Gemini personality-building keynote explaining the unpredictable changes, constant vicissitudes, lack of stability, structure, cohesion and unity among humanity, countries and nations. Instability has purpose, creating awareness that harmony is needed. Understanding Gemini’s personality keynote is important when encountering instability, conflict and chaos.
Humanity works under the influence of Mercury, Ray 4. Mercury is the Star of Conflict (purposefully). Ray 4 is Harmony emerging from Conflict and Chaos. Humanity learns through conflict and chaos. Not understanding its purpose (a call to create harmony), we continue with conflicts. The result is a state of suffering. Humanity then learns through suffering. When we are aware of the need for harmony, seeking to instill harmony (the Will-to-Good, the Will-to-Love) through Goodwill, the Soul (our compass) then begins to direct our daily lives (personality). The Soul is the Star of Harmony.
What is written in these introductions is the relationship between heaven and earth, spirit and matter, personality and Soul. The shifts and planets occurring now illustrate the end of one age (Pisces) and the beginning of our new age (Aquarius). Where mainstream media has nothing to say, these introductions describe influences that are bringing that new age forth, not only influencing it but completely supporting the building and creation of the new culture and civilization.
