    Episode 035: The Break-Up

    Episode 034: Support + Holding On

    Episode 034: Support + Holding On

    Geminis often work long and hard, which can result in malaise, tiredness or even burnout. Gems also love shedding skins and reinventing themselves, but they don't always take time to incorporate and fully settle in to a big shift. Ginger has been observing this in Kat since her big move last November in the midst of holiday retail season, and the shifts have piled on with letting go of her jewelry identity and entering into a new romantic relationship.
    Kat's been on a quest for spaciousness ever since doing The Desire Map earlier this year. Ginger's had to ponder how she's been "holding on" to many aspects of the business they have together or even ideas and expectations. Once she fully let go while on vacation, she started wondering how to support Kat in doing the same. Enter the idea of The Sabbatical.
    In this episode the Gems challenge ideas about how a small business needs to be run, especially one the crosses friendship lines as well. What's good for you? The business? Your friend? And can these ideas morph into core values that support and inspire everyone involved?
    This episode culminates in the official decision that Kat will start a sabbatical from Cult of Gemini beginning on her birthday, June 17. She's filled with doubts and questioning but is willing to trust in the mystery to see what arises. This episode is anything but that as Kat is in full Gemini/Vata mode of scattered overstimulation... but she's gotta start somewhere.

    Episode 033: Self Expression + Feeling Connected

    Episode 033: Self Expression + Feeling Connected

    Ginger shares a recap of her 2-week trip to England and Scotland from whence she just returned. She and Kat touch on expectations and unmet desires and how sometimes you just gotta go with the flow of how everything is unfolding. The Gems discuss the idea of being adaptable versus being empathic, especially as it pertains to traveling.
    Ginger also talks about feeling disconnected from everything: the shop, Kat, her guy, her garden, her dog, her life overall. She came back from travels super relaxed but did hope the distance and time away would wake up that desired connection so she would feel dropped in and grounded in her life again. The convo turns to ideas of generating that connection internally rather than pushing for it or chasing it.
    Kat had some major shifts while Ginger was gone. After wild Beltane festivities in the shop (and many other subtle factors that had been building subconsciously over time), Kat woke up and decided she needed to cut her hair (a whole foot removed!) and quit Facebook. She wanted to really SEE herself in the mirror and be more in the present rather than always looking outside herself and wondering if she needed to be sharing what was happening. Ginger and Kat discuss the ruse of social media; at first it seems like connection but it really isn't.
    The Gems wrap by talking about creating a small biz culture based around support; how can they get everyone in the shop to feel supported? What does that look like? They ponder many other questions including the doozy... asking for your 100%. Sometimes that's the hardest place to go because you don't even know what it is until retrospection.

    Episode 032: Abraham Hicks + Being in the Flow

    Episode 032: Abraham Hicks + Being in the Flow

    YouTube piques Ginger's interest by suggesting Abraham Hicks' videos. She jumps right in and gets inspired, especially about the idea that it's our thought patterns that either point our canoe upstream or downstream so to speak. The Gems talk about being in the flow, when they've felt it, and how to cultivate it. What are we feeding? What are we paying attention to? We can leave the stories behind and focus on where we want to go. Putting this vibration out into the world helps us cultivate what we want.
    Ginger and Kat do a quick Psychic Fair recap since they hadn't even discussed doing 2 full days of individual Tarot readings with a few breaks for 3 Fates Bone Throwing with Amalia Scott and a couple TwinStar Throwdowns. The experience certainly put them each in the flow. Kat's new relationship is giving her the experience of having her energy at the end of the day be reflected back to her — in this case someone else felt the flow, the fun, the lightness and buoyant energy. The Gems set their sites on more of that!
