How are you feeling? The Moon in Gemini is a good time to ask others this question but also when in a waning phase, what about yourself?

After the first couple of days of a Bank Holiday weekend where we have fed our senses during the Moon in Taurus, I often find the Monday a time of reflection; after all who really wants to go back to work?! It is a bit different to a typical Sunday as a lot of us will have had an extra day to unwind. I find a Bank Holiday Monday gets me thinking, it is a time to properly reflect and ask myself questions about what is to come over the next couple of months.

If you need to talk about your needs or the needs of others this is a good time to do so. Also spending time with children or your siblings, cousins or friends can create positive feelings. Having a conversation with those people who are close but not quite in your immediate vicinity all the time can be cathartic.

Having general chit chat can be seen by some as irrelevant and a waste of time. However just having a little natter over the fence to a neighbour or a chat on the phone about a book you are reading, or a film you saw can be enough to keep a vital connection to the outside world and help feel part of humanity. Try and keep those conversations light and fun; gossip and badmouthing is something to beware of during this time and can backfire at a later date.

The Moons connection to Venus and Saturn can help with some of the more pleasant tasks or those that need a little bit more time and effort to succeed. Writing something that you want to be received well is also something to do today, (I have both of these as part of my day today. Searching the internet then reading a recipe for a dish that takes a long time to cook. Writing an email I am hoping gives me some pleasant meetings in the future).
