|The Sun moves into Gemini, a sign of duality. Associated with the element of Air; the anatomy of hands, arms, and lungs; and the characteristics of sociable, talkative, and responsive, Gemini is closely associated with the exchange of ideas, communication, and trade. Invite a few friends together in the evening, and ask each one to bring some seeds with them, either seeds harvested from their garden last year, or a packet of seeds that they have purchased. Have people sit in a small circle and call in the directions.
North, east, south, and west
Circle us and do your best
Protect us all in sacred space
Bless these people,
bless this space.
Let everyone introduce their seeds, telling what they like about the plant, or a story about it in their garden.
Provide small pieces of paper so everyone can take a few seeds from each packet, and wrap them separately to take home.
We exchange ideas, and exchange seeds, we give freely and we receive,
With your hands, plant these seeds, to honor your lungs and the air we breathe,
Seeds of wisdom, shared with friends, with these seeds the cycle begins again.
