The reality of life is that there are so many things to do, choices to make, problems to solve. Add to that the endless shiny objects that entertain and pull at my attention. It’s easy to forget about the refuge, the calm and the simple delights of the present moment. It comes down to how much control I decide to exert over where I put my attention.
The Second House of the Horoscope is naturally ruled by Taurus and, as such, the planet Venus. This house is associated with our values, self-worth, personal resources and finances, earned income, personal possessions and real estate holdings. Known as the House of possessions and values one often relates it to tangible things, in keeping with its earthy nature, and is closely linked to what we manifest. The material goods that we own are often a reflection of what we value in life, things that provide us with a sense of well-being and make our lives more enjoyable.
One of the rulers of Gemini is Mercury, the messenger of the gods, so this new moon will bring us plenty of new and stimulating ideas as well as opportunities to manifest our deepest desires. Gemini loves the new and exciting and the variety of different experiences. It is bored easily. However, these new ideas may meet with challenges and disapproval by others because of some stressful planetary configurations.
