The Convivial in the Trivial: Treasures of Gemini.

Happy Gemini Season to all.  I hope it is a nice bouncy time of curiosity and conversation.  In this post I plan to share some of the glimmering shimmering secrets of the Trickster, in hopes that this Spring Season can be extra intriguing.

Yes, where to begin…

This is the sign most associated with the intellect, words, straightforward logic etc.  Often the archetype of Gemini summons up a smartness, incredible word-craft abilities, cleverness…

Opposite Gemini is the Archer, Sagittarius, the sign that breathes the fire of meaning into things.

Behold the flame of meaning!

But it is Gemini that not only puts this meaning into words, thoughts and expressions, it is also Gemini whose air fans the flames of meaning!

Who.. little old me?

Yes Bugs!  Through thought, speculation, musings, and curiosity- lots of meaning gets stirred up and fortified.  These two signs are on opposite sides of a very interesting spectrum.

The MYTHIC MEANING of Sagittarius and the MENTAL TRIVIALITY of Gemini.

But wait- it sounds as though I am insulting the sign of the Twins!

Who are you calling Trivial??

But it’s true!  The intellect alone will only get a person so far.  Without meaning, thoughts can turn in on themselves and stifle.

The wisdom lies in knowing this to be true:  hence the Trickster is born!

Little old ME!!

Geminis are at heart, Tricksters.  Beings who delight in thought and words, yet with a knowing of the paradoxical limits of thought and words.

The most brilliant of the Geminis have a zen tongue-in-cheek vibe to what they say and do.

And these are the souls that breath air into MEANING itself!  The  two things- triviality and meaning co-creating.  No hierarchy, just discovery.

Perhaps this is some of the meaning behind the Fool Card.

If every where you looked MEANING was staring you in the face you would likely get burned out- fast.

There would be no AIR of LIGHTNESS.  No reprieve.  No jokes, no riddles, no lighthearted smiling or giggling.

Why is it that the characters most devoid of meaning are the ones that make us laugh the hardest?

It’s an interesting paradox, that intelligence and delightful stupidity are tied up in the same archetype.  But that’s Gemini- if it weren’t interesting and paradoxical, it would cease to be- the Trickster.

So, this Season, share in the delight of the enigma of levity, thought, intelligence and triviality.

The convivial trivial!  Long live it!
