The New Moon today in Gemini can easily cause a great deal of spaciness. Due to this happening in the sign of the twins we easily find ourselves in situations leaning toward unaccountability. Do all that you can to identify them as they arise and function with the utmost level of integrity. For more on the quality of integrity: I suggest reading chapter 28 entitled “Truth and Integrity” in my new novel “Lilith.”
Gemini indeed has positive attributes to share. Sprinkles of many new ideas flow through the mind. Do your best to capture them and plant them in the fertile ground of your hopes and dreams. Place your focus on new and innovative ways to express yourself. Begin new projects. Explore innovative ways to communicate with those closest to you. This all satisfies the positive attributes of this celestial influence. Be patient. All your good ideas are soon to grow. There is no need to be hasty.
Venus the Goddess of love returns to one of her home signs: Taurus May 28, later in the day following the New Moon. Though not directly aligned with the Moon in Gemini, the energetic theme of finding polarity is intensified and present. Today is a great day to meditate on existing feelings with regards to your most intimate relationships. There is no need to find a solution but rather surrender to what is and ask to worship polarity. The concept of polarity is often misunderstood. It is not a dance of opposites but rather an admiration of the blending of the perceived counterparts. Instead of trying to find solutions simply open up and submit to what is. Ask to be guided as an alternative to focusing on a solution. Polarity is the harmonic balance of perceived opposition. It is the rainbow of all contained in the supposed difference of opposites.
When Mercury the ruler of the twins slips into the feeling realm of Cancer the crab on May 29, we become much more sensitive. Do your best to stay with the meditative intention of the New Moon. When he begins to retrograde on June 7, we are taken for a ride back through all of our recent findings of the previous two weeks. Again I urge you to stay in the moment and be still. This is not a time to make sudden moves as what may appear an innocuous ring of water from a tossed pebble can easily turn into a tidal wave of misperception.
Mercury’s three week retrospective journey concludes on July 1. Just as with all retrogrades the final lessons occur when he reaches his starting point on August 2. Looks like the season is all about clean up in the emotional side of our projects and relationships.
June 17 the mischievous messenger guides us to revisit conversations that began around the Gemini New Moon May 28. I suggest you post this on your fridge and mark these dates on your calendar. In his movement forward the emotions gain momentum by July 4, so watch out for encounters at celebrations to those of you in the USA.
The outer planet Neptune begins a Retrograde cycle June 9, at seven degrees Pisces. Just as the Angel Gabriel blows a horn symbolized on the XX Tarot card entitled Judgment, we are in for a wakeup call. The planet Neptune however is very subtle. This is a great time to work with your dreams and meditations. Do not expect anything. Again the theme for this month and the coming weeks is to surrender and be open. This continues through the November 16.
Our Full Moon this month is in the poetic wanderer’s sign of Sagittarius on June 13. The archer opens our eyes. His ability to sense a goal or target is uncanny. Be sure to have your capture tools of journals or electronic notepad apps ready! A tricky angular relationship of this particular lunar opposition with the Sun has a perverse effect on our long-range planning. Talk things out with teachers and guides. Come to me for a session. I am here to help you gain clarity. Adding a taste of tangy unconventional spice to the Full Moon is Grandfather Uranus in Aries. Strong breaking of what had been perceived as convention strips away yesterday’s belief system. Practice the necessary actions in order to give time to strengthen up any raw areas.
As I mentioned earlier Mercury is still in retrograde June 17, when he backs up into his home sign of Gemini. Flip your perspective to the opposite view. Practice the reverse for the sake of seeing and feeling other’s viewpoints. June 19, the Sun is conjunct Mercury. This potentially awakens consciousness and helps us to realize our true beingness. I have always told you that you are indeed divine. May you realize this today!
The Solstice point to switch the Northern Hemisphere to Summer and my friends below the equator to winter occurs June 21. This is marked by the Tropical point of Cancer. Now is the time for a gentle retreat in order to give space and time to our minds and to feed our souls. I recommend a stay-cation or an actual getaway. Keep it full of relaxation with plenty of time for reading, writing and drawing. Feed your body and your mind well. Capture your feelings and findings.
Our Lunar month comes to an end with the procession of Venus floating into Gemini. She surely inspires you to get the words out about all you have been contemplating. This is your opportunity to really express yourself and take a step forward. Now is the appropriate time to voice the decisions you have come to realize.
May you break the patterns that bind you and strengthen those that serve the highest good! I invite you to read on for my predictions for the 12 signs.
Aries March 19/20 to April 20/21
Just when you think you have a handle on everything—it all turns to chaos. Clear and honest communication has not been your strong point lately. Adding to this is a tangled mess of misunderstanding. Everything is affected including upcoming travel plans and romantic connections. Use your best shopping sense to make good choices. Do not become prematurely committed to anything until you are one hundred percent sure of your decision. Should you do so, you will cause a reinvention of a jumble you just recently finished cleaning up. Avoid signing any contracts and choose to borrow or rent before making large purchases. This goes for absolutely everything, from what you wear to where you live!
Taurus April 20/21 to May 21/22
Anything that can possibly cause a slip and slide at home does so. To handle this I suggest this protocol: stick to yourself introspectively. The good news is that your muse has your back so lean on this creative playmate for support. Whether tangible or in your fantasy world, trust in this supportive being to inspire. This helps a much needed financial cushion to take form. It can be packaged in a second job, a loan or a much deserved raise. Evaluate all your recent spending and investing. Identify unhealthy trends and set out to get rid of them. There is a high potential to receive unexpected news. Take extra care to be honest when anything or anyone is rubbing you the wrong way. It is better to say no thank you before taking them home.
Gemini May 21/22 to June 21/22
Keep a very close watch on all of your data entry and paperwork. New and better methods come into view to help you handle all of the information you have been wading through. If you are unsure of what you want or how to proceed ask the Dream Master. In your sleeping hours you receive many great ideas from the depths of your unconscious mind. These help you to make sound decisions. Indeed you are experiencing the early rumblings of a career change. Sit tight for now as the ultimate shift is still ahead and yet to appear. Remain the witness and know that all is coming into focus as you make your way around the next bend in the road.
Cancer June 22/23 to July 22/23
Now is the perfect time to reach out and make new connections. Many opportunities are showing up and being presented in an array of packages. These include new business contacts, romantic opportunities and invitations to new groups. By all means, even if you must push yourself in order to do so, go beyond the edges of your comfort zone. Your new creative project is fast becoming a fixation. Allow it to consume you. Throw even more time into it. Now is the time to actively dream your future. Imagine what you really want and then let it go to the four directions. This is no time to be lazy.
Leo July 22/23 to August 23/24
You find greater ease in accessing the depths of the unconscious mind. Take as much time as you need for yourself so that you can luxuriate and tune into the messages you are meant to receive. When you find a way to slow down, it is much easier to see the details and methods needed to bring together a group of supporters. Your creativity increases as does the feeling of attraction to your significant other. Keep your eyes and heart open to old friends of the family. Be grateful as you collect good energy and support from these renewed connections.
Virgo August 23/24 to September 23/24
An unexpected rise in social activity swells along with a draining of intuition. Therefor you need a little extra time for decision making in order to negotiate this. An exciting new experience is around the corner. This can be a new romance due to travel or a heightened spiritual awareness. When the mind begins to feel muddled, take quiet time and allow yourself to drift in peaceful contemplation and meditation. Issues you had feared were closing in on you are melting away. This news lifts a great deal of stress. All of your hopes and wishes for your family are being answered, so give thanks.
Libra September 23/24 to October 23/24
There are still several hurdles and obstacles you must negotiate and ultimately overcome. Your career is on a bumpy path. It is a good idea to revisit your recent choices that you had passed over. Sift through the selections and gather up the morsels that had slipped through the cracks. Save all desire for sudden movement until next month. Right now it is important to contemplate and tidy up. The more loose ends you are able to tie up the better. This provides you with a great deal of vitality to meet the inevitable new beginnings that await you.
Scorpio October 23/24 to November 22/23
It is highly likely that you already have a plane ticket and your bags packed for a scheduled getaway. This journey coaxes you to dive deeply into your sacred spiritual sector. Keep your journal handy at all times in order to scribe your new found discoveries. Create peace by seeing as many existing projects to completion as is possible. This helps you to focus on balance and harmony which in turn creates space. All decisions help seed upcoming projects. It is your choice which you wish to grow into fruition. You have every right to say no thank you. Stay focused on what really makes you feel good.
Sagittarius November 22/23 to December 21/22
You are reevaluating all methods by which you manage your physical world. This includes diet, lifestyle and especially your domestic environment. Look back over the recent months at your choices and the outcomes that they inspired come clearly into view. Now look at your current choices. Ask yourself if you have made the wisest decisions with regards to the weight and value of all that has come to pass. Take extra care when reworking anything having to do with family and home. You could be coming close to delicate triggers—once handled, place full focus on your health. Vanity is never a good reason to jeopardize your well-being.
Capricorn December 21/22 to January 20/21
No, it is not your imagination—people are having a challenge understanding you and getting where you are coming from on the new concepts and ideas you are trying to share. Dial it down a few notches and be sure you are explaining everything clearly and succinctly. Are you ready to float on a river of bliss? Sea-goats seeking love are in for a treat this month with lots of juicy opportunities for trysts and soirees. Be sure to mind the boundaries set by groups and especially at work. This is not a good time to breach a forbidden borderline due to you having absolutely no ability to stop a raging wildfire. Think twice when this presents itself and back away politely.
Aquarius January 20/21 to February 18/19
Many issues at your place of work are keeping you extra busy. Be sure to keep a watch on your stress levels so as to not blow a circuit. Heavy attachment drags you under and leaves you gasping for air. You must take responsibility for anything choking you. When this occurs you have a tendency to lash out at the ones closest to you. Do your best to identify when you need to take a time out. Sure you have more processing power than most, but remember, you are only human—not a machine! If projects, people, places and things are in need of a big change then by all means support the revolution.
Pisces February 18/19 to March 19/20
New concepts have boosted your innovative ideas and now you can relax and let this wave carry you forward. Artists can invest the extra time in projects while lovers are advised to place more attention on their partners. With this blessing comes a lesson. It is time to really look at your communication patterns and revamp techniques. It is easy to drift out of sight and out of reach. Others do not necessarily respond positively to this especially the people in your close inner circle, likewise the ones in with whom you share daily space. Do exploration and educate yourself on new ways to function with clear communication.
