White or Black Magic? It’s Up to You!

The world The June 12th Gemini New Moon gives all of us a chance to re-frame the ways in which we perceive, process and define our world. Whether we’re talking personal, social, national, global or universal, it’s all about what we see and how we experience it. Take a room of people and expose them all to the same exact scene and situation, action and activity, and the descriptions of what happened will vary from one individual to another. Perception is colored by experience, education and exposure. A lot of what we see is what we have learned to see, what we have been “told” to see. Reality is relative to what we believe is “real.”

 Gemini follows Taurus, where we learned about finite, physical reality.  Taurus provides for, nurtures and sustains life. Gemini thinks and questions, talks and listens. It is here we gather information, explore ideas, communicate our thoughts and travel around the block to find out what’s going on outside our door. Gemini is curious and clever, loves to laugh and play. Ruled by Mercury, this multi-faceted, multi-talented sign is forever changing, shape-shifting and morphing into whatever or whomever seems to be most appealing, popular or current at the time. Motion oriented, mobile and mutable, it’s difficult to capture or keep Gemini energy still for very long. It is inherently restless, coming and going like the wind.

Magician As the Sun and Moon come together @ 21º Gemini this week, take some time to pay attention to your thoughts, your internal dialogue and the default position of your thinking patterns. Are you predominantly positive or negative? Do you make decisions based on fear or love? Do you feel restess, irritable and discontent? Are you upset by the current state of affairs in the world? If so, what can you do about it? Can you change toxic thoughts, once you’ve identified them, or do you seem stuck on repeating patterns that fuel frustration and anger?  Are you willing to trust the universe and cultivate faith in basic goodness, or do you find yourself questioning the integrity of humanity? Whatever the answers, now is the time to recognize the power of your mind and the quantum energy of thoughts. The word is magic, whether it’s written, spoken or in the invisible shape of a concept or an idea. Become the magician…black or white, it’s up to you!

Aries (Mar. 21-Apr.19)
The June 12th Gemini New Moon encourages fresh perspectives and an open mind when it comes to looking at yourself, your situation and life in general. With Jupiter and Uranus conjunct in Aries, you are being asked to break out of ruts and radically change behavior patterns that no longer work for you. Be open, be willing and trust in basic goodness.

Taurus (Apr. 20-May 20)
You may feel overloaded or overwhelmed with all the things you can, “should” or have to do. Take a deep breath and relax in the moment. Make a list and proceed in a step-by-step, day-by-day manner. Getting angry, stressed or irritable is anti-productive and simply works against you. Look at the bigger picture and count the blessings amidst the chaos.

Gemini (May 21-June 21)
With ruler Mercury now moving through your sign, you may be feeling clever, uplifted, enlightened and bright. Humor is your ally and laughter is your friend. Share happiness and cultivate joy in your relationships. Mars in Virgo encourages both domestic and self-improvement – clean and tidy-up – inside and out. New Moon energy says, “Start fresh!”

Cancer (June 22-July 22)
Voluptuous Venus in your sign shimmers rays of love and beauty down upon you. Celestial music, guardian angels and romantic opportunities surround you. Be sweet and embracing to others, but remember to also be kind and gentle with you. A career change may feel upsetting, but it’s only the universe expanding in new, exciting directions. Cultivate faith.

Leo (July 23-Aug.22)
Forget about trying to figure out why others are the way they are and do the things they do. If you’re upset by someone else’s behavior, take a look at your own. We teach others how to treat us and the only way to affect someone else’s patterns is to change our own. Walk away from anger, violence and abuse. Replace it with peace, harmony and love.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep.22)
Motivator Mars has recently moved in to Virgo and will remain there until July’s end. This awards you will several weeks of good physical health and stamina. You may feel a heightened intensity regarding personal agendas and desires. This is a highly charged period, when you can accomplish a great deal. Channel energy in positive, productive ways.

Libra (Sep. 23-Oct.22)
A fresh New Moon shimmers light upon angelic realms and invites your spirit guides back in to your heart and home. Be awake and aware when it comes to otherworldly presence and stay tuned to the inspirational and divine. Venus in your solar 10th house of achievement favors artistic pastimes and endeavors. Surround yourself with art, peace and beauty.
 
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 22)
Big changes are in the air when it comes to personal health and self-improvement. You are finally ready and willing to do it different. Open your heart and head to new ways of eating, living and being. Work is also changing and expanding in exciting, unusual directions. Foreign lands beckon and possibilities glisten. Trust in truth and go for the good.

Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 20)
This week’s lunation in air Gemini blows fresh life into both you and your relationships. It’s time to start anew, break out of ruts and recognize your part in both the good and bad aspects of sharing and pairing. Understand the essential meaning of practice and embrace it. We learn by practice and patience. Focus on what you’re doing and let go of the rest.

Capricorn (Dec. 21-Jan. 19)
Big changes at home and in your personal world shimmer and shine this week as Jupiter and Uranus play snap, crackle, pop in and all around you. Rather than question why, jump in and play. Change and expansion are the name of the game and now is the time for looking beyond the proverbial horizon. The future lives in the now. Do your best today.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
As your mind expands and perceptions change, open your heart and keep your eyes on the ball. And make sure you are treating others with respect and kindness. Our world is rapidly changing as humankind spins webs around the planet. Do the best you can to do no harm and cultivate kindness. The word is magic, pay attention to what you say and think.

Pisces (Feb. 19-Mar. 20)
A fresh lunar month begins on Jun. 12th as the Sun and Moon conjoin in Gemini. This translates as a time of new begi
nnings in your personal world and domestic environment. Weed the gardens and mow the lawn, enjoy life’s most simple pleasures. Cultivate attitudes of gratitude and practice the art of grace. Others love your sweet, happy smile. Be sweet.
