Luna Cucina: Gemini Full Moon

Gorgeous Gemini, you are a clever one...

A bit flighty at times, yes, but just as patience is being tested,

you come around with your wit,

so immediate

so dead-on

and all is forgiven.

I love your mind.

The question is always:

Which one of the Twins will show up?

Often, Gemini doesn't even know.

So, Lovers,

when the Moon is Full in the sign of the Twins,

expect things to be more changeable than usual.

You're gonna have to surrender and go with the proverbial flow,

as you may indeed be asked to think on your feet, quickly...

Versatility is the key,

and anything practical is hilarious right now.

Don't push the body, either.

Rather, harness the powers of this Moon to pursue intellectual interests...

Read, yes, but get out and meet people, exchange ideas, be curious...

This is a mentally exciting and stimulating Moon!

And, Bunnies, you'll want to pay particular attention to your nervous system and lungs,

so I've conjured a delectable shake elixir to protect and strengthen these areas for you, my sweet Darlings:

Gemini's Gem of A Potion

Serves two. As in Twins.

  • 1/2 organic white grapefruit
  • 1 organic navel orange
  • 2 organic apples
  • 1 C unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 piece of ginger, about an inch thick, chopped
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric
  • 1 C organic baby spinach
  • 1/4-1/2 tsp chlorella or spirulina powder
  • 1 packet or 1 dropperful stevia, or to taste

Blend all the fruits and spinach together with the ginger and almond milk, then add the turmeric and spirulina to your liking. The apples, especially the super flavorful ones (like Pink Lady) will completely mask the taste of the spirulina, but if you are new to it, take it slow. Add more almond milk as you like for a creamy, smooth consistency.

The apple, grapefruit, orange, nuts (in the almond milk), turmeric and  ginger all promote healthy lungs by helping to transfer oxygen, promoting elimination of pollutants, and clearing the lungs. The spinach and sea algae are both high in nutrients and minerals key to a well-functioning nervous system, including oxygen absorption and clear brain functioning.

You can only feel amazing after drinking this, and it's delish! Unexpectedly spicy, tart, with a hint of sweetness, it will get your brainpower going instantly.

Speaking of nervous system, the Gemini Moon also is the purrfect time for things that relax us a bit, practices that can still the precious mind, like yoga or meditation.

Or...massage.

Being a pleasure junkie, I'm going for that one.

Since Gemini also rules the shoulders, arms, and hands...

I think a massage and manicure are in order, yes?

Book something with a trusted practitioner, holistic if you can. You have to be careful with the transfer of energy. A good therapist will clear themselves of the previous clients mojo, and have bright energy themselves. You can usually tell, but don't be afraid to ask either. 

As for your nails, steer clear of chemicals, Babes, please. They are absorb into the system through the skin and it's a bad scene. I usually do a home manicure, but if I'm going to a salon I always bring my own nail lacquer and top coat, and remove my polish first, then rub some Argan oil into my nail bed and cuticles before I head out the door. Try Acure Organics for top of the line, well priced oils.

Where to find cruelty-free, luscious colors without chemicals? Check out No Miss for a zillion juicy shades at a teeny price, Mineral Fusion for sparkles, and the oh-so-plush Vapour Organics for all out glamour.

So, my Doves, as the Moon peaks on Saturday, delve deep into intellectual forays,

brainstorm, discuss, debate, hobnob,

search for the meaning of it all,

and, as always, take excellent care of your beautiful selves.

I love you.
