Boy the eclipses just won't stop...sun, moon, venus - energy being shot out of a cannon to energize you and me to change with the times. Cause the times they ARE a changing. Dig out your 60's albums, run to your local vinyl store and LISTEN to those words again because the time has come. Time has come today. Its a grand trine day...Venus in Gemini, Sun conjunct Venus, both in Gemini, squaring Mars in Virgo and Chiron in Pisces (as is Neptune).
The moon is in Sagittarius on the 4th, opposite the sun in Gemini....the bachelors of the zodiac are merging with the world. Time to unite with one another, while taking time to work on ourselves too. A lunar eclipse works on emotions. Time to look at them, deal, solidify or delete. Eclipses are deep energy. Look at what is going on RIGHT NOW. The energy needs to unfold, to do what it is supposed to do....move us to a new place to serve our higher self. If you fight it, resist - its harder on yourself. Don't be your own worst enemy. Time to be curious and follow the breadcrumbs and you'll find a new and better place. Stretch yourself and broaden your belief system. Its a big picture issue, so don't get stuck on the details. JOY is the goal. Are you happy? Why not? What adjustments do you need to make to get there? This high energy will help you step up. Its time to trust FEELINGS.
This is going to be a crazy day. Eclipses are always wonky energy anyhow, but today we have sun moon opposition causing tension albeit in fairly easy going signs. But then Neptune, the father of spirituality and illusion, goes retrograde until November. Look over your shoulder at the changes you've endured since February when Neptune came home into Pisces for a 14 year stay. Take a bit of a breather now, evaluate what has changed or is changing, and watch Neptune move back to the beginning of its move into Pisces so you can see how it started and in November it will start all over again!! Time to review it all and plan for the next decade of transformation. The eclipse happening on the same day triggers deep spiritual thinking as Mercury is also in Gemini, the ruler of Mercury. Start a journal and write it down for the next few months. This is the layers of the onion being peeled from your soul.
Take time for yourself now. Solitude. Meditation. Journaling. This is time for our spiritual growth. Do the work and its easier on you and will give you such a high when you have those "ah ha" moments. Blessings to you in your journey. You chose this work.....no procrastinating. Otherwise the Universe will force you to change, and you really don't want that to happen. Go with the flow....uh the tidal wave.
The sun moves into Gemini on May 20th. The New Moon is in Gemini on May 20th. A Solar Eclipse in Gemini on May 20th. whew. And I am a Gemini with Sun, Moon and Mercury in Gemini, so I'm buckled up and ready for the rocket ship to take off. You should be too. Gemini's are going to feel this earthquake of energy erupting. Sagitarians are going to be bracing for "something". Virgo and Pisces are going to be a little scared, but as they are mutable signs they will do fine. Leo, Libra, Aquarius and Aries are ready for the ride too. Taurus, Cancer, Scorpio and Capricorns are going to try to dig in their heels, which will only make it worse. Its 2012. Its all about change. And as this eclipse affects the North Node, its about independent change. Its about working on yourself. You might be feeling anxious, but its just the sense of all this energy bursting out around you. And its double the energy in Gemini, the sign of the twins.
New beginnings and strong energies are being released, which take a while to play out. Its like gunshot before a race. Fire and Air signs are energized to change. Earth and Water signs are pushed to make change. 2012 is all about redefining yourself. This is one more opportunity to do that. It's not quite time to act, but it is time to mull things over from different viewpoints than usual. Gemini is ruled by Mercury, the mind, and the messenger of the God's. Your mind will be full of ideas. Be sure to carry pen and paper or a recorder so you don't forget those flashes that come to you while you're stopped at a red light. Flashes from out of the blue are the norm now.
There is another Gemini new moon on June 19th as well. Two chances to harness energy for change, for the new, for the next phase of our life. Be innovative, listen to hunches or odd ideas. Creativity is bubbling around you if you will listen. Things will probably happen suddenly. Be ready when the unexpected happens so you can leap. But it is Gemini, the twins, so you may get conflicting ideas, opposite directions...which way to go. Depending on what house Gemini is in for your chart, this is the area of your life that will be activated by this new energy. First house (rising) will affect your personality and how others see you; 2nd house, your values are changing; 3rd - your communication skills are changing(for the better); 4th your home will undergo changes; 5th romance and creativity get a new wind; 6th house duties may come upon you quickly or change in some way unexpectedly; 7th partnerships will be redefined; 8th what others give you may change in unexpected ways; 9th your spiritual path is being redefined; 10th your career is undergoing a review; 11th - are those friends really good for you or will new ones be better; and the 12th - your hidden "stuff" is coming up to the surface for review and release.
Also Venus is now in Gemini too and just went retrograde last Tuesday, bringing old loves and ideas back to the table for review. Did you do the right thing, or should you rethink old decisions? The brain and heart are very busy now, reviewing all of our internal stuff.
Gemini is change. Always in motion. Moving. Never a dull moment with a Gemini. By the second full moon of June, decisions should be made or accepted. Eclipses release energy like a gun shot at the start of a race. Get ready, get set.......... for several months of change. Isn't 2012 just amazing? For you fixed signs who have trouble with change, use everything you've got to embrace the new. Its really good for you now, and what you may lose will be replaced by something better, more challenging, more self-defining. Its all good. We're in the year of being shaken up...might as well enjoy it cause you're only gonna make it worse if you dig in your heels. Flap your wings and go where the wind takes you.
And in June there are two more eclipses....in Gemini. This is going to be a summer of 1969 kind of energy. Be ready for ANYTHING!
