Saturday night is the Gemini new moon festival. “Let instability do its work,” is the keynote. All the vicissitudes, confusions and instabilities in our lives have purpose—our eventual seeking of balance and harmony. Gemini (sign, person, month), is a playful and fun sign. The “tricksters” of the zodiac. Moving one way, then another, then disappearing without notice. Gemini always signifies “two.” Two minds, two columns (Twin Towers, Masonic columns), two hands, two brothers/sisters, etc., each offering two realities. Gemini points out the relationship between them. Pondering these words, we begin to understand Gemini people. We see them doing their spiritual task (job). Each sign has a task and purpose. We especially experience duality during the month of Gemini.
The major sign of relatedness, Gemini must connect two seemingly unrelated ideas, realities, people and events. Often, Gemini will introduce two people and disappear, their work of relating things complete. Geminis step out of the picture and into their next task of relating things.
Gemini works with Mercury to gather information, distribute, share, and create new awareness. Building the Rainbow Bridge. Sometimes Mercury offers much information. Then Venus (Gemini Soul ruler) steps in. Venus balances, synthesizes, unifies, eases us into new realities with grace and beauty. Our God is from Venus. Bees, wheat, corn and ants (communities) are also from Venus. Venus is Earth’s elder sister.
ARIES: The month ahead sees you working toward and within your sense of values. If you don’t actually know your values, then observe yourself—actions, focus, communication. Note that you’re slower than usual, caring for what you love (and value) with extra care. You see your ambition, the acquiring of possessions, your impatience or impulsiveness. Your senses are more alive. You eat more. You’re taking on the sturdy and consistent virtues of Taurus. A good thing!
TAURUS: You have Vulcan’s volcanic ability to forge lead into gold. Having so many abilities, you learn to share a few. Sharing is new to you. You research the causes of things. Some call this studying conspiracy theories. But actually, those theories often end up to be true. You’re more energetic, active, forceful and even, at times, overly assertive (shocking!). Rarely are you this way. It’s the planet Mars’ (the 9 tests) retrograde, playing havoc in your opposite sign of Scorpio!
GEMINI: You’ve become more like a Pisces. Meaning? More sensitive, more in-tune, reluctant to push the river, a sense of other worldliness, walking a different path. You’re working more in secret, and can be blamed for things you didn’t do. There’s an intuition that the past is somehow merging with the present. For a while everything becomes more private. Dreams (day and night) appear, imagination is sparked, creativity comes alive. Music (more of it), please!
CANCER: It’s most important to ponder upon the word “cooperation” and consider how you impact those around you. With new and emerging thoughts and ideas, you may be inclined to talk over others and attempt to dominate. Sometimes this is needed. However, it’s best to work with team effort toward a group goal. It’s also important to create daily agendas, schedules and plans. They will be your future’s purpose, context and protection.
LEO: You’re the leader, the voice everyone hears, the one everyone looks to, hopes to be, learns from, emulates. Your accomplishments are recognized. This pleases you. I have written before that for a Leo to evolve, others must see, recognize and praise their efforts, gifts and abilities. Praise is how Leos more fully identify themselves as creative. Say, “I AM because I create (and you see it).” All of this occurs. You’re grateful.
VIRGO: A hunger for expansion, for newness, adventure and a restlessness that won’t accept no for an answer overtake you. Your life actually does need expansion—new studies, new people, new experiences. All of this energy propels you into travel, new interests, new books along with opinions leading to disagreements, arguments and discourses. Stay away from gambling, speculation or things illegal. Read, study and walk neighborhoods daily.
LIBRA: Careful with projecting anger and/or suppressed passion (from long ago to present) toward others, especially ones close to you. You may be unaware of this. Be aware of issues concerning joint money and resources, conflicts and crisis concerning differently learned values. Careful with communication. You may suffer from others’ harshness. Or your own. Home is where all transformations take place. Guard yourself and loved ones carefully. Attend church or temple. Pray.
SCORPIO: Everything may feel personally challenging. A great wave of change is washing over you. Let’s understand about conflict. Any conflict experienced means harmony, in shadow form, is hidden within the conflict. Harmony seeking to emerge. Scorpios are ruled by a star in the Big Dipper called Ray 4—Harmony through conflict. Know this is, and will be, your state of mind and experience. Seeking harmony is your sign’s task. Everyone watches and imitates you. You’re Hercules.
SAGITTARIUS: It’s possible you feel restricted with Saturn in Sag. At first it can feel like obstacles have become a way of life. Saturn, however, is the new Teacher. He informs us of disciplines, daily life rituals that need to be rhythmic. He teaches us restraint, Right Timing, Right Direction and Right Thinking. Saturn teaches us to take care of ourselves with right priorities. Don’t dispute anything (mostly yourself). Recite silent Ohms. “Laughter is a meditation,” says Alan Watts. YouTube this.
CAPRICORN: You would like the Alan Watts laughter video on YouTube mentioned above for Sag. Laughing dispels any sense of doom or overwhelm you may be feeling. With Pluto in Capricorn, deep thoughts and feelings can take over one’s life. Laughter helps. Tend to loved ones, especially your partner (first). The result will be more play, pleasure and sleep. Do you need new items in your home? Research now. Purchase what’s needed after Mars turns direct (beginning of July).
AQUARIUS: Are you feeling the need for protection and for security? Be clear, organized, and shield your money, finances and resources. Keep track of monies coming in and going out. It’s possible you could feel lost or confused around money. Unexpected events could occur. So stay awake, aware and alert. Continue to tell friends and family of your needs. If issues from the past emerge, talk with someone about them. Perhaps you’re asking, “Where is my home?” Talk about this.
PISCES: Work slowly each day on physical tasks. Order and organize all environments. Create greater efficiency. Ponder upon your true wants and needs. Soon ideas from the Mind of God come forth. Observe communication becoming kind, easy and loving. This is Mercury in Taurus. Mars, on the other hand, will soon push things forward. You will want to travel. Tend to hands and feet. Sew, draw and paint. Use your heart to make order. Neptune in Pisces.
