3. Moon in Gemini – Stomach Function Energy

After the partial Lunar Eclipse at the end of Taurus, we begin our journey with the Moon in Gemini. What mental burdens and blocks are you ready to release? What new things do you wish to learn and master? As we travel through the Lunar cycle, don’t forget to journal any interesting experiences, insights, and thoughts. They will become a record of our journey.

I Process Information

Gemini resonates with curiosity and learning. Under its aegis, we focus outward to seek new information, then process it, master it, and finally communicate it. 

When we distort the gifts of Gemini, we become superficial, changeable, inconstant, unbalanced in our speech. 

To use JSJ to harmonize it, we’ll use the anchor step for the Stomach Flow. Here is how to do it:

Left Side

Place your Right hand on the left cheekbone at Left SEL 21 and your Left hand on the left clavicle at Left SEL 22. Hold for 3-5 minutes or for as long as you wish.

Right Side

Place your Left hand on the right cheekbone at Right SEL 21 and your Right hand on the right clavicle at Right SEL 22.

For the next two and half days, Harmonize Stomach Function Energy as often as you remember and feel the inclination for it.

How It Helps

On the physical level, Stomach FE washes the entire front of the body – from the face down to the top of the foot and the first three toes. Because it makes two rounds around the face, harmonization of Stomach FE can show up as fresh and glowing skin.

On the mental level, Stomach FE clears up energetic blocks by removing blocks in the head and face and allowing for the energy to flow down the front of the body. That reduces the incessant mental chatter, the preoccupation with small and big concerns, and gives us mental serenity and peace.

As you sit quietly and harmonize Stomach FE, ask yourself, “What am I learning at this moment?”

A seven-step sequence to harmonize Stomach FE is given as the Anterior Descending Energy in the The Touch of Healing (p.137) and in Mary Burmeister’s Self Help Book 1 (pp.43-47)

Here is the correspondence between the signs and the 12-fold Function Energy: (1) Aries/Lung; (2) Taurus/Large Intestine; (3) Gemini/Stomach; (4) Cancer/Spleen; (5) Leo/Heart; (6) Virgo/Small Intestine; (7) Libra/Bladder; (8) Scorpio/Kidney; (9) Sagittarius/Diaphragm; (10) Capricorn/Umbilicus; (11) Aquarius/Gall Bladder; (12) Pisces/Liver.

Coming up next is 4. Cancer – Spleen Function Energy.

    I didn’t know that there is connection between the organ flows & the signs. I did full stomach flow yesterday. I always feel very energetic when I do this full flow. I felt the same yesterday. Is there any additional benefit in doing it the day of Gemini?

      The connection is numerical. In this case, both Gemini and Stomach are number three in a twelve-fold division. There is a resonance and commonality between the third parts across different twelve-fold divisions: the third two-hour period of the day, the third month of the year starting from the spring equinox, the third part in the twelve-fold daily function energy.

      Also, note that Gemini here refers to the Gemini of the Tropical Zodiac (most common in the West), which is the third part of the year from the spring equinox.

      As for the additional benefits – I don’t really know. That is why I proposed to do this experiment – to go along with the Moon’s position and find out for ourselves how it plays out. I’ve done it with the Sun and it helps with jet lag but the cycle is daily and easy to spot when we are out of sync – we are sleepy during the day, we can’t sleep at night, eat at the wrong time of the day, etc. The Moon, on the other hand, governs so much our emotions, imaginations, and inner intuitive life, that I’d be paying attention to the moods and emotions and not so much to the body. For instance, which part of the month I feel moody, which part of the month I feel like catching up with work, when I feel more contemplative, when I feel like cleaning up, etc.
