Returning Friends and Recurring Seasons – Happy Birthday and Summer Solstice

Sc000a71cc It’s Bluegrass in Telluride and for me that means music and motorcycles. It’s also one of my best friend’s birthdays [June 20th] – he’s the latest degree of Gemini possible – a “cusp baby” – which means he’s a highly evolved, clever and talented trickster [Gemini] taking his first “baby steps” into becoming a nurturing, loving, sensitive, willing to be vulnerable and get in touch with his “feminine side” [Cancer] kind-of-guy this time around.

Every year he makes the journey from Steamboat to Telluride, via Gateway and Redvale, stopping by our tree farm ranch to spend a night in the bunkhouse “cowboy room” or speed up to his rented condo at Riverside – depending on who and which toys he has in tow. It’s been a sweet sixteen years since we met him in Cabo Pulmo, Mexico, where he was staying over Thanksgiving in the house next to ours, with a newborn baby boy named after one of my favorite constellations – Orion.

The boy will be turning sweet sixteen himself this November and his Dad’s journey continues to bring him back to us year after year, again and again. The proud owner of the Gateway Trading Post – bought on his way back to Steamboat one year after Bluegrass (before Hendricks came to town) – my husband had suggested he take the “back way home” for a change – and proprietor of Strawberry Park Hot Springs in Steamboat – the “real” Don Johnson pops in and out of our lives like a true Gemini/Cancer cusp. Whether he shows up on a Harley, BMW, Corvette, Porsche, Toyota or Jeep – Gemini/Cancers are quintessential shape-shifters and love all types of vehicles and modes of transportation – he likes to stir it up, shake it up, laugh and have a good time – always with the intention of letting you know he’s still around and he still cares.

Happy Birthday, Amigo, and Happy Summer Solstice [June 20th @ 11:46 pm MDT]. May we all celebrate the sensations of summer and the joy of returning friends and recurring seasons.  Peace, love and happiness.

Aries (Mar. 21-Apr.19)
A week of great spiritual potential and opportunity encourages personal and professional beginnings. Plant seeds of good intention in the fertile soil of cosmic consciousness. Feel your feelings and follow your intuition. Be sweet and kind to others, open your heart and nurture inner creative talents and desires. Cocoon at home and explore the hood.

(Apr. 20-May 20)
Mars and Venus conjoin in your sign and light the lights of love, excitement, beauty and desire within your heart and soul. Celebrate this great yin/yang pairing in dining, dance and song. Express affections and pursue passions. Maintain balance via healthy boundaries and manifest beauty by enhancing your environment with flowers and art. Enjoy life!

Gemini (May 21-June 21)
Ruler Mercury in Gemini sparks ideas and fuels intellectual fires, but the New Moon in watery Cancer sprinkles just enough sentiment and emotional sensitivity to keep it from raging out of control. Consider other’s feelings instead of thinking only of yourself. How might you nurture and help heal another’s pain? Look for angels and pray for guidance.

(June 22-July 22)
Pluto’s close opposition to the Sun and Moon in your sign emphasizes a profound and rather magical opportunity for looking into darkness and seeing what lurks in the dark depths of the unconscious mind. Pay attention to the people and paths present in your life now. Express friendship love and play with friends. Start fresh and step forward.

(July 23-Aug.22)
The last lunar and solar month before your birth month begins this week, and with it comes deep feelings of nostalgic longing, sentimental emotions and memories of days gone by. The Lion is forever and always a friend of the heart and champion of romance. Cultivate humility and walk in grace as you explore the art of compassion. Live in beauty.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep.22)
Solid Saturn and nurturing Ceres in Virgo trine a lusty Mars/Venus conjunction in Taurus as the Sun and Moon come together in sensitive Cancer. All this translates as a week of great potential for building strong foundations and making realistic commitments in male/female relationships and new economic paths. Do the work and stay on the path.

(Sep. 23-Oct.22)
With so much going on in the cosmos, it’s no wonder you may be feeling somewhat out-of-synch or out-of-sorts. A fresh New Moon in your professional sector encourages fresh starts regarding career and achievement. Get very clear about what you value and what you want. Plant seeds of divine intention and prepare for a major purge at home.

(Oct. 23-Nov. 22)
The New Moon in Cancer heralds a lunar month of heightened awareness and expanding horizons for the Scorpion. Seek your highest self and embrace it. See the divine in nature – watch the sunsets, look for evening and morning stars, take hikes and indulge in beauty. Treat yourself kindly and give love to others. Remember karma and do your best.

Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 20)
Mental mobility and intellectual curiosity may bombard you with information and barrage you with ideas, but this week, pay attention to your feelings. A rather powerful healing is in the works, and it has to do with your brothers and sisters, lovers and friends. Be open and willing to accept responsibility for your part. Make amends and move forward.

(Dec. 21-Jan. 19)
This week is powerful and cathartic! You are called upon to feel your deepest emotional pain and use it as a tool to help and heal both yourself and others. Breathe in suffering and breathe out love. Mars and Venus in your solar 5th house of the heart award you with courageous strength and intoxicating beauty. Embrace the challenge and turn on your shine.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
The transformational convergence of Jupiter, Chiron and Neptune in your sign continues, shape-shifting realities and challenging the rules of engagement. Stay true to your heart and strong in your convictions. Others may attempt to sway or influence your thinking and actions, put health and self-recovery first. Open to enlightened service and serve your world.

(Feb. 19-Mar. 20)
The black-night moon-time preceding the Cancer New Moon of June 22nd presents you with rich cosmic soil for planting seeds of personal desire and creative intention. This is a very significant and fertile lunation for the Fish – excellent for ceremonial magic, ritual prayer and acts of loving-kindness. Feel the power of good in your heart and follow its path.
