ACTIVE – Moon in Gemini, laboratory process of Fixation – emotionally versatile
Fixation is the process of stabilizing and incarnating a substance; depriving a substance of its volatility or mobility to congeal or combine it. Work with the salts, such as leaching, may be more productive during this time. Although, it’s good to remember there’s a lot of the Air Element during this period – but all 4 Elements are present, Fire being the next most active.
Sidereal astrology is about what’s ‘in the air’ for us as individuals.*
Here are the angles:
A good time to: suddenly understand; something you’ve been working on that’s part of the big picture regarding your purpose.
Challenges: difficulty adapting; like riding a motorcycle in the fog, it’s hard to think ahead.
Balance: loosen your grip; cradle the pleasant things around you with an open palm.

It brings a reference point for understanding our possible strengths and weaknesses; which can then be related to our work and relationships.
