June 12 to 19, 2014  Visible Planets: Morning: Venus  Evening: Mars, Jupiter, Saturn
Astro WheelI have to admit, in true-to-form, classic Gemini style, this zodiac month has been busy! Attempting to keep things in order and pay attention to what I need to pay attention to – priorities and focus – has kept me totally active – body, mind and spirit. Sacrificing fun for work as a general rule, resisting the desire to jump on my motorcycle and throw caution to the wind – which is a typically Gemini thing to do – in spite of the rumbling Harleys and hot rods that periodically roll down the country highway bordering our ranch, has been my modus operandi.
I have accomplished much, and still have plenty to do. Job security, I often say. The final days of springtime are always full. Tilling the earth and preparing the soil, followed by planting, transplanting, mulching watering, mowing, weeding and so on. Life on the farm. I’m amazed at the pleasure I feel when tiny seeds turn into sprouts, then seedlings and, eventually, healthy plants. So simple and yet, serenely profound. Primal acts of survival that manifest beneficial results do in turn reap deep satisfaction. It’s an equation of action and consequence – the territory of Taurus the Bull – and until Taurus rolls into Gemini in late May, we are characteristically patient and steadfast. Willing to work and wait.
Gemini2And then, along come the curious, versatile Twins. The multi-faceted, multi-dimensional Multi-Verse of metaphysical magic and exponential possibility and potential presents itself. (As opposed to the relative calm of the old school – Taurus and Isaac Newton’s – mechanical Uni-verse.) Suddenly, there is a plethora of things to do, places to go and ideas to consider. The pace quickens and we can no longer sit still. And away we go…
This week, we find ourselves on the heels of a very dynamic Gemini/Sagittarius full Moon. As we move through the final days of spring, we can see and feel summer solstice glimmering upon our seasonal horizon. Things are moving fast. And with that said, it’s time to slow down.  Full Moons illuminate what we can and cannot see. Not only do they fill the nights with silvery light, allowing us to find our way through the forest, but they also shine light into our hearts and souls. As above, so below – the ancient Hermetic dictum – rings true each and every full Moon lunation of the year. So, just like Hermes Trismegistus – the ancient magician and alchemist – and antiquity’s legendary Emerald Tablet – let us ingest the meaning and magic of the stars and Moon, the teachings of the Sun and the life-giving, nurturing power of the Mother Earth. Blessings and peace. Good luck, good will and good fortune to all…
Aries (Mar. 20-Apr.19) The waxing Moon comes to full fruition on June 12th at 10:10 pm MDT @ 22º06’ in the Gemini-Sagittarius polarity. This translates as a basically positive, uplifting lunation for the Ram. Much has transpired over the last two weeks. Changes in latitudes and attitudes continue. You are virtually transforming, being reborn, and it’s quite dramatic. Stay in the light of truth.
Taurus (Apr. 20-May 20) As the full Moon shimmers above the distant horizon, center yourself on the stable terra firma of time-honored experience, spiritual truth and material value. Maintain an open heart when it comes to others, accepting them exactly as they are in this moment. Understanding he dynamics of relationships is a lifelong journey. Share the wealth and enjoy the ride.
Gemini (May 21-June 21) Every year, the Gemini-Sagittarius full Moon lunation shines light upon your personal needs and wants in relationships. Also illuminated are the wants and needs of others. Finding a balance between the two is the most important piece of the puzzle, and really not that difficult to do. Seeing the bigger picture helps tremendously. Cultivate gratitude and practice happiness.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) As the last full Moon of springtime shimmers its silvery beams upon your heart and home, take a deep breath and count your blessings. Angels and spirits surround you now, as the sizzle of summer and your annual solar rebirth grows near. Generous joker Jupiter has been playing tricks upon faith, testing your goodness. Focus on beauty and bounty. Count your blessings.
Leo (July 23-Aug.22)
Mars now direct in Libra helps the Lion let go of those fixed opinions and learned behaviors that may no longer serve you and/or others well. Seeing the opposite side of the coin or opening to the perspective of another vantage point is extremely beneficial and enlightening now. Also open to inspiration via friendship and camaraderie. Follow your heart.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep.22) With your personally motivated motor running in synch with heartfelt desires, you are in an excellent position to get a lot done. Resurrect lists and redirect your focus on taking care of things you’ve wanted to take care of for years. It’s basically all about getting your house in order, cleaning up messes and discarding or recycling what you no longer need. One day at a time.
Libra (Sep. 23-Oct. 22) The June full Moon perennially awards you with multi-faceted, illuminated perceptions and enlightened perspectives for understanding issues of judgment, awareness and personal behavior. While you have a predominantly open mind and loving heart, you know the benefits of periodic adjustment and repair. Get out the spiritual toolbox. It’s time for a tune up.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 22) Master Teacher Saturn retrograde in Scorpio until late July translates as several more weeks of opportunity for getting your personal self and house in order. This recurring 29-year life cycle functions as a time of major reckoning and restructure, when reality is your friend and ally. Therefore, it’s imperative to embrace sacrifice and prune the bush. Good luck.
Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 20) After an extended period of trips and travels, it’s time to slow the pace, rein it in and enjoy the trees and flowers. As one who cultivates a big-picture sort of life perspective, you can easily adapt to foreign cultures, explore territorial frontiers and understand worldviews. But, now it’s time to look closer at what is right in front of you. Enjoy the journey home.
Capricorn (Dec. 21-Jan. 19) Themes of growth and expansion in your most important and close-to-heart relationships come into play this week as the Gemini-Sagittarius full Moon illuminates paths of healing and health for the good of all concerned. Reach out to inspirational friends and support groups for guidance and direction. Get involved, do your best and cultivate inner peace.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) The June 12th full Moon encourages happy-hearted, fun-loving get-togethers and social gatherings for friendship-oriented Aquarians. There is nothing better than a good party, no matter how you cut the cake. Just make sure you go prepared with an open mind and willing heart, take what you need and leave when you’re ready. It’s time to live and let go.
Pisces (Feb. 19-Mar. 20) With so much going on and so much to do, you may find yourself running from here to there, lost in thought or forgetting what you wanted to remember. Don’t feel like the Lone Ranger, these days and times are full of so much information and stimuli that it’s difficult to find spaces and places of peace and serenity. Find sanctuary at home and chill the heat.
