GEMINI, CELESTIAL EVENTS, PART II of II

The Month Ahead

As the Sun moves into Gemini on Saturday it squares Neptune conjunct Chiron in Pisces. Allowing our conscious awareness to shine through when interacting and communicating with others can be difficult when fear and confusion cloud our thinking. Trust in the universe and incorporate empathy, compassion and forgiveness in your thought processes and communications.

The Sun in Gemini deposits to Mercury in Taurus, suggesting we take in information through all our physical senses and communicate in a deliberate, patient, and grounded manner. Mercury in Taurus is closely conjunct Mars and Venus, suggesting we can create physical connections with the earth in several ways to create more stability in our lives. Take action creatively, building slowly and thoroughly, and finishing what you start. Take time to value, love, appreciate and enjoy the creature comforts you have.

On June 4th the planet Jupiter moves into the sign of Taurus, giving us even more impetus to keep our feet on the ground and be practically creative in our lives. Jupiter spends approximately one year in a sign. The year ahead is a time to create a higher vision of life that is solid, secure and dependable. Use all your senses to connect with the earth and get in touch with what is good, true, and beautiful for you. This will help you clarify your values, and assist you in identifying what is truly important materially. It will help you integrate your material and spiritual values.

Solar Eclipse New Moon in Gemini

A New Moon occurs when the Sun and the Moon conjoin overhead from our perspective on Earth. This represents the fusion of our outer consciousness and awareness, symbolized by the Sun, with our inner emotional and unconscious self, symbolized by the Moon. This is a fertile time for new beginnings, for sowing the seeds of your new projects and endeavors.

The next New Moon will be on Wednesday June 1 at 2:03 p.m. (PDT). This Solar Eclipse New Moon will be at 11 degrees Gemini trining retrograde Saturn in Libra. The new beginnings we create will support our efforts to create more balance in our lives and more fairness in our relationships.

The area of your astrological chart where 11 degrees Gemini falls represents the area of your life where you can benefit from cultivating new beginnings by being flexible, adaptable, and seeing other points of view. How can you be more responsive to your immediate environment? How can you communicate more effectively with others? Where do you need to create some change or movement in your life?

You may wish to set some new goals or create Gemini affirmations on June 1st. Examples are: “I express myself in open-minded ways as I share information with others.” “I embrace change through movement and adaptation.” “I use my communication skills to be a spiritual messenger.”

Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Sagittarius
You will begin to see evidence of the seeds you sow on this New Moon as they come to fruition on the following Full Moon in Sagittarius on June 15th. This Lunar Eclipse Full Moon will conjoin the transiting Moon’s North Node, impelling us to align with a greater Truth, communicate our vision of life to others, and become the Spiritual Messenger.

“Become a student of change. It is the only thing that will remain constant.”
– Anthony J. D’Angelo

GEMINI, SPIRITUAL MESSENGER, PART I of II

GEMINI, THE SPIRITUAL MESSENGER

“Nature is a mutable cloud which is always and never the same” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
_______________________________
Saturday afternoon the Sun will leave the stable, placid earth sign of Taurus and enter the energetic and interactive air sign of Gemini. Each succeeding sign of the zodiac provides the means to rectify or redirect the energy of the previous sign. Gemini lifts the solid and steadfast energy of Taurus to engage the intellect and connect with others.

Gemini is bright, curious and intelligent. It has a child-like enthusiasm for exploring its immediate environment and learning new things. Quick in thought and action, inquisitive and clever, Gemini easily grasps new ideas. It loves facts and is an avid information gatherer. The key phrase for Gemini is “I Think.”

Gemini is adept at seeing all aspects of a situation. It easily turns things upside-down or inside-out to view them from all vantage points. Dualistic in nature, Gemini appreciates both sides of an argument and knows there are two sides to every coin. The symbol for Gemini is The Twins, which represents duality seeking other viewpoints. Versatile and adaptable, Gemini can be difficult to pin down. Like the weather and the wind, this mutable sign is ever changing.

Gemini appreciates being in the moment. It is spontaneous and dislikes routine. It searches for variety, and delights in the multi-facetedness of life. Multi-tasking Gemini can do many things at once, such as chatting on the phone while checking email and leafing through a magazine. Like its archetype the juggler, Gemini can keep many balls in the air at once.

Gemini mentally free-associates and can quickly change subjects when talking with others. Gemini effortlessly flits from topic to topic like a butterfly, briefly alighting on one idea and then the next. Quick-witted Gemini has a sense of humor and enjoys tricks and riddles. It excels in word-play, such as puns and limericks.

Gemini rules our side-by-side relationships with siblings, peers and neighbors. Social Gemini shares its information and ideas with others. While talkative, Gemini can also be a good listener. It is a communication chameleon, adapting itself to changing situations and people. Gemini engages its intellect to work quickly and come up with easy solutions and answers to problems.

Gemini rules our early childhood and grammar school education, when we learn the skills we need in order to adapt and move about in our small corner of the world. We acquire and refine our motor skills, learning how to tie shoes, play catch and team sports. We are taught language skills and how to read and write. We learn how to interact in socially acceptable ways with siblings, playmates, and other children at school. We master using the telephone and the computer to communicate with family and friends.
While Gemini appears changeable on the surface, it often lacks depth and persistence to make lasting changes. It has a short emotional memory and often fears the lesser known, deeper parts of itself. When it feels uncomfortable it changes the subject, or finds a back door to escape. Sometime appearing to lack good judgment, Gemini needs to learn to take responsibility for its feelings and actions.

Gemini’s restless intelligence becomes bored easily and it can lack follow-through. When it lives exclusively in the realm of the mind, it can neglect the body and practical, worldly matters. Because the breath helps unify the mind and body, deep breathing exercises can be very grounding, centering and restorative for cerebral Gemini.
Archetypes for Gemini are twins, Peter Pan, the Fool, Coyote the Trickster, jesters and mischievous imps and sprites. Writers and journalists, novelists and book sellers, elementary school teachers, news commentators, weather forecasters, telephone operators, taxi drivers, and messengers of all sorts embody the energy of Gemini.

The color for Gemini is lemon yellow, which stimulates mental processes and encourages movement. Visualize yellow as you move about in your environment, in your car or on your bicycle. Malleable and flowing quicksilver is the metal for Gemini. Citrine is its gem. Ferns and Lily of the Valley are Gemini plants. Butterflies, small birds and monkeys are Gemini animals. Parts of the body ruled by Gemini are the hands and arms, the lungs and respiratory system.
__________________________________________________
MERCURY, PLANETARY RULER OF GEMINI

The sign of Gemini is ruled by the planet Mercury. Mercury in our astrological chart describes our information filter to the world: how we take in information from our immediate environment, how we process it, and what we do with it. Perhaps you are familiar with other models that describe the ways in which we relate to the world, such as the Myers-Briggs types or the 4MAT learning styles. In astrology we turn to the planet Mercury in a person’s chart. Its sign and House location reveal a person’s primary mode and arena of interacting with their environment, and how they think, learn, and communicate. The relationship of Mercury to other planetary energies in the chart further refines its nature and expression.

Mercury expressed through each of the 12 signs of the zodiac represent 12 different languages, or 12 different intellectual approaches to life. The 12 signs are classified by element. The fire signs are action-oriented, willful, inspirational and spontaneous. Earth signs are concrete, practical, material and sensation oriented. Air signs are intellectual, communicative and relational. Water signs are emotional, sensitive and creative in nature.

As the planetary ruler of communication and movement in our life, Mercury asks how well do we use our communication filter in perceiving the world around us? Can we be open-minded, adaptive and tolerant in a changing world? Can we be flexible, receptive, and accommodating of others’ communication styles? How can we use our relationship skills to be a spiritual messenger?
