June 5 to 12, 2014 Visible Planets: Morning: Venus Evening: Mercury, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn
Gemini energy is light, airy, curious, flirtatious and fun. Sagittarius energy is fiery, enthusiastic, adventurous, expansive and free. Both are easily excitable and love to laugh. Jesters and jokers, scholars, explorers, writers, actors, politicians, professors, priests and players of every shape and kind, the Gemini-Sagittarius polarity weds the little boy and girl beginners mind in each of us with the well-educated, world-traveled, enlightened seeker, preacher and spiritual guru that also resides within. It is where the primal brain, after eons of thinking, perceiving, learning, planning, talking and teaching, [Gemini] reaches the point of no return -the brilliantly glistening horizon of unlimited potential and possibility; our ever-expanding, exploding Universe [Sagittarius] – and awakens to the ultimate, creative force of the cosmos. The numinous and divine Cosmic Brain, aka God. It is here we experience enlightenment – nirvana – for just moments or a lifetime. We understand the interconnectedness of life and death, all beings are made of starlight, we are the stars.
This week, as the Moon waxes toward full, take a look at the Gemini hustle and busy-bustle all around you. And take a good look at yourself. Chances are you are feeling over-busy, over-loaded and scattered from here to there with so many things to do and places to go. So why not see if you can bridge the gap between our common, everyday 3D reality and the magnificent, fairy tale, fantasy world of our dreams? Point your Archer’s arrow toward the Father Sky, dial up the Hotline to Heaven and book a ticket on the fabulous Magic Carpet of childhood storybook lands to your favorite evolving star, constellation or starry space? Why not try? What do you have to lose? Good luck and may the Great Force be with you. Onward Cosmic Travelers…
Aries (Mar. 20-Apr.19) As we wind our way toward the Gemini-Sagittarius full Moon of June 12th – under Mercury retrograde – be prepared for plenty of mental review and reconsideration regarding personal self, family, domestic situation and career path. What challenges were you facing 6 months ago? What changes do you still need to make? Face the challenge and commit to change.
Taurus (Apr. 20-May 20) Dynamic challenges may come into play regarding spouse, family, home and professional life as the Moon grows full under the influence of the third of three cardinal grand crosses this year. You are being pulled subconsciously – by past life experience, childhood conditioning and moral standards – toward more compassion and kindness. Let it be.
Gemini (May 21-June 21) For the last six months, the world has been under intense pressure to examine four different areas of life: self-identity, relationships, home life and work. Now, with a full Moon and the third of three cardinal grand crosses in orb, resolution is possible. The more you resist change, the more frustrating, fatiguing and stifling circumstances become. Let it go.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) Another powerful lunar fruition translates as a fortuitous challenge of change for Moonchildren. Celestial pressure has been constant this year, with little leaps and bounds of profound understanding and enlightenment. And yet, it is still difficult to let go of what you worked so long and hard for. Jupiter says, have faith and go forward. It’s time for new horizons.
Leo (July 23-Aug.22) Mercury retrograde periods favor words and actions that start with the prefix “re” – reconsider, review, reprocess, revise, return…the list goes on and on. For one who prefers to make the best of every situation – turning lemons into lemonade for example – this is just another fortuitous opportunity to take care of so many things left undone. Job security, get busy.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep.22) Mental, messenger Mercury is Virgo’s traditional ruler, but planetoid Chiron is identified as its metaphysical healer and spiritual guide. And healing is what it’s all about. Awaken to the amazing importance you have in your own life. Embrace the magic of self-responsibility. How daunting to realize you – and only you – have the power to make creative changes. Yes!
Libra (Sep. 23-Oct. 22) Another exact cardinal cross – the third of three – comes into orb as the Moon grows full. This translates as another powerful turning point and metaphysical touchstone for getting in sync with the cosmos. Mars now direct in Libra gives you a green light regarding personal goals and desires. Take it one day at a time. Clean house and keep the ball rolling, as you focus on inner peace.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 22) The opposition of Saturn in Scorpio to Venus in Taurus under the illuminating light of this week’s waxing Moon – exact on June 12th – honors the values and limits of yourself and others. This is a wildly powerful and far-reaching opportunity to establish realistic and healthy boundaries within your soul and psyche.
Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 20) The June full Moon takes place in the Gemini-Sagittarius polarity, the cosmic bridge connecting perception, cognition and intelligence to judgment, philosophy and belief. It is here you discover an intriguing, enticing array of possibility and potential, a veritable winning hand of cards with which to play. Take the high road and follow the signs.
Capricorn (Dec. 21-Jan. 19) Pluto, Uranus, Jupiter and Mars in square aspect combined with a grand water trine and a full Moon in fire and air promise a very dynamic and potentially life-changing week. Keep your head and heart aligned with the higher good, a higher purpose and your Higher Power. Whatever, whoever and whenever; emotions are like the weather – it constantly changes.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) With planets and asteroids in every sign but the Aquarius-Leo polarity, you may feel less stressed and more detached than many in these crazy, chaotic days and times. You understand the interconnectedness of all humanity and the importance of healthy plants and animals upon the Earth. Clean air and water are essential to life. Remain calm and lead by example.
Pisces (Feb. 19-Mar. 20) Health-conscious Chiron and numinous Neptune in Pisces join force in a sensuous water trine with reality-based Saturn in seductive Scorpio and far-reaching Jupiter in nurturing Cancer this week. Meanwhile, love-planet Venus in Taurus adds stability and calm to an otherwise tumultuous full Moon. Breathe deep, touch the earth and keep the faith. Patience is a virtue.
