Sun transit through Gemini

sun in gemini

According to the Tropical astrology the sign Gemini is exalted from May 21st through June 21st. Gemini’s key phrase is “I think”. It is an air sign, occurring at the end of the season making it mutable.   A mutable sign occurs at the end of the season as the energies begin to shift into the new season making them more adaptable, sharp, resourceful, and flexible.   Gemini is the “quick communicator”.    Gemini’s key words are:  clever, versatile, inquisitive, charming, mental, witty, restless, adaptable, sociable, expressive, and fun.  It’s ruing planet is Mercury.

Gemini is a curious and intellectual sign.  Knowledge and diversity motivate us with the Sun in Gemini. We are more sociable, intellectual, and insatiably curious under this influence. People take up interests that spark new ideas.  It encourages reading and studying.  Attitudes become inquisitive, clever, interested in “novelty”, and are willing to try something new just for the heck of it. We are more open to talking things over and sharing new ideas during this time.  Communication of all sorts seems to become effortless, instinctive, and enjoyable.  Gemini energy turns our attention to social networking, recovering friendships, and becoming extroverted.

Air signs are communicative and intellectual.  They like to weigh their options out and reason things out.  Gemini’s planetary ruler Mercury rules the mental body, style of thinking and all sorts of communication, including computers and telephones.  It influences our thoughts, connections, writing, and logic.  Mercury also has an effect on the nervous system.

Gemini constantly curates new ideas so existing facts can be compared and, if necessary, tossed aside. You may need an update in your ideas and this might become challenged by someone else’s opinion.  The trick is to not get upset because Gemini’s duality insists that there are two sides to every story, and no truth is sacred (for now).  It brings a keen skepticism motivated by our need to know the truth.  Use this energy to create new friendships, and open ourselves to truthful relationships and connections with the people in our lives now.  Learn to respect other people’s ways and points of view.

The shadow side to this energy is that we can become restless and scatter our energies around to a multiple things as a result of our curiosity and awareness of all of our options. We are more communicative and versatile, but we can also be unreliable.  Watch for idle gossip. Gemini is also known for quick and cutting wit, so be careful about speaking too quickly or making offhand remarks that hurt someone’s feelings. Watch out or becoming close-minded, opinionated, and nervous, ad your ideas becoming too scattered or insincere.   Also beware of saying one thing but then doing another…be mindful of that in people as well.  Hyperactive Twins sometimes overthink and over-analyze things to the point of anxiety, and you might find yourself doing the same while the Sun’s in Gemini.  If so, try a relaxing activity that will get you out of your head, such as exercising, watching silly TV programs or just keeping your hands and body busy.  You might find it hard to concentrate on one thing because of all the chatter going on this month from everybody.

Overall, enjoy this lighthearted time.  This is the time to speak your truth.  Use this time to strengthen your capabilities and to express and communicate who you really are.  Explore and express your own opinions rather then relying on what others suggest you think. Gemini’s influence grants us some much needed flexibility and a playful realistic attitude about ourselves.

Beltane

may eve

Beltane is the last of the three Spring fertility festivals.  Most commonly it is held on April 30 but sometimes on May 01.  Beltane is a fire festival that represents the peak of Spring and the beginning of Summer. It celebrates fertility of the coming year.  Celtic festivals often tied in with the needs of the community. In spring time, at the beginning of the farming calendar, everybody would be hoping for a fruitful year for their families and fields.

Beltane and Samhain are the two greatest festivals of the solar year.  They both are celebrations of life and death… at Samhain emphasis on death and at Beltane the emphasis is on LIFE.  LOVE is in the Air!  Earth energies are at their strongest and most active. All of life is bursting with potent fertility and at this point in the Wheel of the Year, the potential becomes conception. On May Eve the sexuality of life and the earth is at its peak. Abundant fertility, on all levels, is the central theme. It is about sexuality and sensuality, passion, vitality and joy. And about conception. A brilliant moment in the Wheel of the Year to bring ideas, hopes and dreams into action. And have some fun…..Being a fertility festival sexual pleasures were common often occurring outside on the Land to bless fields, herds, and homes. May Bowl was the beverage of choice, a punch (wine or non-alcoholic) made of Sweet Woodruff blossoms.

maypoleThe Maypole is an important element to Beltane festivities, it is a tall pole decorated with long brightly colored ribbons, leaves, flowers and wreaths. Young maidens and lads each hold the end of a ribbon, and dance revolving around the base of the pole, interweaving the ribbons. The circle of dancers should begin, as far out from the pole as the length of ribbon allows, so the ribbons are pulled tight. There should be an even number of boys & girls. Boys should be facing clockwise and girls counterclockwise. They each move in the direction that they are facing, weaving with the next, around to braid the ribbons over-and-under around the pole. Those passing on the inside will have to duck, those passing on the outside raise their ribbons to slide over. As the dances revolve around the pole the ribbons will weave creating a pattern, it is said that the pattern will indicate the abundance of harvest year.

The Maypole dance is an important aspect of encouraging the return of fertility to the earth….it’s symbolism.  It’s not just an insinuation of  sex (the union of male and female which creates new life) but also is the connector of the three worlds. Dancing the Maypole during Beltane is magical experience as it is a conduit of energy, connecting all three worlds at a time when these gateways are more easily penetrable. As people happily dance around and around the pole holding the brightly colored ribbons, the energy it raises is sent down into the earth’s womb, bringing about Her full awakening and fruitfulness.

bonfire beltaneFire is still the most important element of most Beltane celebrations and there are many traditions associated with it. It is seen to have purifying qualities which cleanse and revitalize. People leap over the Beltane fire to bring good fortune, fertility (of mind, body and spirit) and happiness through the coming year.  Beltane rituals would often include courting: for example, young men and women collecting blossoms in the woods and lighting fires in the evening. These rituals would often lead to matches and marriages, either immediately in the coming summer or autumn.  Other festivities involved fire which was thought to cleanse, purify and increase fertility. Cattle were often passed between two fires and the properties of the flame and the smoke were seen to ensure the fertility of the herd.

The three days before and the three days after Beltane are super powerful times for healing work, psychic meditation, and setting intentions/affirmations into motion.  Beltane is a time of divination and communion with Fairy Folk/Nature Spirits.  Long ago the indigenous people saw how the energy that runs through the “ley lines” of the Earth (power points or meridians) gets stronger and more intense at the equinox and solstice and mini-equinox or mini-solstice times. The electromagnetic field of the Earth is intensified, creating a rich atmosphere for tapping into the energy part of your being. . .the spiritual side or psychic side. This aspect of you is more readily available during the three days leading into one of these times and for the three days afterwards.

The May waters were also seen to have magickal influence.  A common Beltane tradition included Rolling in May Eve dew or washing your face in pre-dawn May Day dew for health, luck, beauty.  Also, getting your head and hair wet in Beltane rain to bless the head.  A common practice was Blessing springs, ponds, other sacred waters with flowers, garlands, ribbons, and other offerings.  People would collect sacred waters and scry in sacred springs, wells, ponds, and other waters.

There would be gatherings and exchanges of Flowers and Greens on May Eve, pre-dawn May Day, Beltane.  People would decorate their homes, barns, and other buildings with Green budding branches, including Hawthorn. Yellow flowers such as primrose, rowan, hawthorn, gorse, hazel and marsh marigold were set at doorways and windows.  Making and wearing of garland wreaths of Flowers and/or Greens.  May Baskets were given or placed secretly on doorsteps to friends, shut-ins, lovers, others.  Oatmeal and dairy products was the food of choice during this time also used for offerings to nature spirits or faeries.

beltane32Beltane is a popular time for pagan weddings or Handfastings, a traditional betrothal for ‘a year and a day’ after which the couple would either choose to stay together or part without recrimination. Today, the length of commitment is a matter of choice for the couple, and can often be for life. Handfasting ceremonies are often unique to the couple, but include common elements, most importantly the exchange of vows and rings (or a token of their choice). The act of handfasting always involves tying the hands Handfasting (‘tying the knot’) of the two people involved, in a figure of eight, at some point in the ceremony and later unbinding. This is done with a red cord or ribbon. Tying the hands together symbolizes that the two people have come together and the untying means that they remain together of their own free will.

However, in addition to sexual fertility, Beltane is also about abundance, in many forms. Don’t just focus on material gains… it’s about the growth of the earth and its bounty, and it’s about increasing your own spiritual and emotional wealth.  Overall, it is a good time for celebration, play, creative activity, and real “magic.”

Sun transit through Taurus

taurus

Spring has sprung, love may be in the air, the weather is warming up and our attention turns to enjoying the finer things in life.  According to the Tropical astrology  the Sun is exalted in Taurus from April 21, 2015 through May 20, 2015.   Taurus’ key phrase is “I have”.  It is the “steadfast worker”.  Being a fixed sign, occurring in the middle of the season when the energy of the season is at it’s height, Taurus can come off determined, powerful, intimidating and often stubborn.

In Taurus, the Sun is methodical, sensual, and receptive. This may not be the time for brilliant ideas or innovation but it is the time where you will have the tenacity and strength to follow through all the projects that were initiated during the Aries Sun.  You reap what you sow and this is the time to put in the work.  The Bull also motivates us to attain a level of very basic security, the kind accumulated through routine and through taking things slow.  Taurus is loyal to all that is familiar, and values longevity. The shadow side of Taurus is possessiveness and bullheadedness.

When the Sun moves through this earthy sign it’s time to stop and smell the roses.  Earth signs are practical, down to earth and they tend to be material and play it safe.  The Sun’s transit through Taurus is an invitation to get more grounded, practical, and enjoy our senses.  It’s time to reconnect with your body, being physical beings and all…  It’s time to honor your physical needs.  Taurus is all about engaging your senses…  a rewarding nice bubble bath, enjoying savory foods, the joy of physical touch.  Take the time to literally stop and smell the roses or get some bodywork done… align your energy fields, get a massage.  How about a healthy, tasty and nutritious diet?  Make dietary changes that will nourish and support your body.  Make time to honor Mother Earth and nature.  Sit outside for a couple of minutes during the day….get to know your land.  Watch the animals that live in your property, listen to the birds.

This is typically the time where plants start to take root, inspiring us to create better habits and routines for ourselves.  Taurus is ruled by Venus and Venus rules the throat and kidneys.  Our throat chakras may become vulnerable and need special attention and healing.  Venus is the god of LOVE and during this transit it puts the emphasis on a lot of self-love.

Taurus is also associated with money.    Around this time people seem to spend more money.  They indulge in the finer things in life, things that will bring tactile pleasure.  This is also a good time to work on manifesting more wealth and cash flow…work with this energy.

My second child is a Taurus and he always has to “have” things.  He is constantly asking “Can I have it?”..money, sea shells, rocks.  He touches everything and puts it in his mouth…engaging the senses.

Aries New Moon

new moon in ariesThis Saturday on April 18, 2015 at 2:57 p.m., we greet the Aries New Moon.  At the Aquarius New Moon you claimed your weird.  At the Pisces New Moon you connected with your Inner Muse so you can lead with Spirit.  Now at the Aries New Moon it’s time to take your weird self and shine*…Start something…*  Destiny is calling.  We are transitioning through a set of 4 fated New Moons, starting with last month’s New Moon in Pisces.  That means that it was in the end of a sign getting ready to transition into another constellation.  So we are having a little bit of both energies at play here with the New Moons.

When the Sun and the Moon meet up each month at a doorway, as in a New Moon, there is an alchemical call to turn what is lead within you, meaning your chattering mind, etc., into gold. *  Tracking the New Moon energy you’re reflecting a real deep relationship with the Moon.  And if you respond to the Moon, she will respond kindly back to you.  When you show up and work with these energies,  a doorway opens and something reveals.

At this New Moon, What are you being called to revolutionize?  Aries is all about new beginnings, blazing new trails, initiation energy of really making things happen.  It’s all about taking action.*  But before you can take action…what is needing to be healed will show up.

How often have you had these things or ideas that you are ready to birth?  And you show it to somebody, and unfortunately, they just don’t get it and they just YUCK on your YUM.   Where have you been YUCKED on and where are your YUMMY moments?  At this lunation, make a two column list.  On one side put YUCK and on the other side put YUM.  Make a list of those things you feel YUMMY about.  Whatever makes your heart sing and soar when you’re doing it.  And on the other side put those moments where you have been YUCKED on.  Those times where somebody’s intention bubbles up and says “You can’t do that.  Who do you think you are?  Why are you doing that for?”    How have you YUCKED on other people’s YUM?

fire breathingThere may be a teaching that wants to come forward or it may be part of your leadership right now.  There was somebody who just stomped on and crushed what you wanted to do…. a teacher, family, spouse, friend.  And now you finally have the spiritual muscle and are ready to do it.   There is no doubt in your mind that you’re ready to do it.  This is the space and place to claim it because 29 degrees is not just something that you want to ignore.  It’s Fated…It’s Destiny.*  You are going to have to connect with and trust your inner spirit that what you are doing is the right step and that it’s gonna lead you to where you want to be.

This is not the time to sit back.  You need to figure out what you want to do….Who you want to be…Because you’re planting seeds that 6 months from now you will harvest at the Aries Full Moon.  You’re going to be harvesting whatever intentions you planted these next couple of weeks;  So plant well.  Take advantage of the energy.  You just don’t want to go to sleep.  This is a time where you can manifest your dreams in a quicker way.  This is also a great time for Vision boards.

Stop discounting your inner knowing and allow divine guidance to come forward.  Tell people what you know in confidence.  Come out of the closet with your spiritual gifts and wisdom.  There is a lineage of grandmother’s and women who are holding space for us and all you have to do is show up and say YES.*

Wherever Aries is in your chart, that’s where you are called to lead.  Where is Aries in your birth chart?  That is where the action is right now.  What house?  Are there any other planets in that house?  Are they at 28 degrees or 29 degrees in Libras, Aries, Cancer, or Capricorn.  If so, then this New Moon is activating those planetary energies and asking you to tell your story in a different way.

There is a little bit of BIG ME vs. LITTLE ME energy going on here.  Your BIG ME is attributed to the Full Moon. It is the part of you who goes out and gets things done.  Your LITTLE ME is attributed with the New Moon and is the part of you that is still wounded.  It’s saying “Are you sure we can do this?”  Typically a New Moon occurs before the Full Moon but these past couple of months it has been reversed.  We had the Libra Full Moon last weekend before the Aries New Moon coming up on Saturday.  In Libra you are called to partner, balance, and harmonize and in Aries you are being called to lead, pioneer, and blaze new trails.

How are you being called to step up and lead.  It’s time to make a decision, at each Aries New Moon, that you claim whatever your part in the puzzle is.  You need to be firm in the conditions of what you want.  Stand ground.  What do you want to do?  How are you going to get it?  And if you’re confused, just take a breath and spend the next couple of days in nature and ask “Where did my YUM get YUCKED on?”  Because somebody in your past told you that you had to remain small.

marsMars is the ruler of Aries.  When Mars is trying to get healed it will flash into anger.  There are many types of anger.  We are human beings meant to cycle through the energy of emotion…joy, happiness, sadness, anger, etc… Since the Libra Full Moon people have been getting angry.  This is a good because when anger is expressed in a healthy way, it turns into passion.  And movements start from passion.

If you grew up in a family where anger was not allowed to be voiced then you may have a low, small voice.  And those issues of not being able to tell your truth… the anger behind the smile, is coming out for you to deal with so you can finally heal and move on.  And if anger shows up…birth that energy.  Give it a voice.  Give it some action.  Shout it.  Go to the beach and kick waves and yell “I’m really f***ing angry!”  It’s the best thing that you can do because instead of that energy being trapped in your body, it’s now been activated.

Venus, your heart knows what to do.  She knows what she wants to create, and now she gives Mars her marching orders.  Because Mars will always be in service to Venus.  Mars can take things and run with it.  It wants to motivate, fire things up.  So celebrate the anger.

What are you longing to create for yourself in your business… in your relationship… in your family?  You want to look at the task at hand.  What story is begging to be told.  Aries is all about asking you to take a risk.  Mars is a great energy.  It takes your intentions and helps to move them into action.  Mars is important.  If you don’t have a healed Mars, you will be trying to get things going but it just won’t get anywhere.  You need a healthy Mars.  Where is Mars in your body?  Where in your physical form are you holding all that Mars energy.

aries in the skyThese next three New Moons are going to be very important celestial events.  Aries is your ability to lead.  saying “YES” to leadership.  BIG ME vs. LITTLE ME energy.  Taurus is about your self-esteem and self-worth.  Do I have a grounded knowing who I am, what my value is.  I know how to create abundance.  I know how to ask for the money.  Gemini is about your voice.  Giving voice to your truth.

What’s your Yum gonna be this week leading up to the New Moon?  It’s a 9 month birthing process.  You’re gonna start to see stuff from this in 6 months and by January you’ll see it fully formed.

Real Time Astrology

So now that we are familiar with astrology let’s delve a little bit deeper into this topic for a minute.  Here in the United States we follow the Tropical astrology, which is based on your Sun sign (the position the Sun was in at the time of your birth).  The Tropical astrology is also based on a fixed position of the stars and planets, not following the movements in our skies.

ophiuchusUnfortunately, the Tropical astrology is outdated and not accurate anymore.  The Sun is no longer passing through the constellations in the same order or timing as it was 3,000 years ago.  At present our ecliptic passes through the boundaries of 13 constellations, the usual 12 and a new one known as Ophiuchus (or Serpentarius). Ophiuchus  is depicted as a man supporting a serpent, the interposition of his body divides the snake into two parts, Serpens Caput and Serpens Cauda. Ophiuchus, is located in a position near the center of the Milky Way galaxy.

The traditional dates for the Sun’s position in the Zodiac are not only out of sync with the actual sky, but they are artificially separated into 30-degree segments to make each sign last an average of 30 days. When in actually, the signs are anything but evenly distributed across the sky.  The sun spends the most time in Virgo for 44 days and the least time in Scorpio, for only 7 days.   Your horoscope is a sacred mandala of your time birth so it’s kinda important that you are reading the correct map to chart your course.astrology image

The revolution of the Earth around the Sun, and the revolution of the Moon about the Earth, cause the Earth to wobble about its axis of rotation, similar to the motion of a spinning top. This motion is called precession. It is the wobbling of the equatorial plane that causes the line of the intersection of the equatorial and ecliptic planes to move.  The intersection of these two planes determine where on the zodiac our spring and fall equinoxes occur. This line of intersection is said to precess or move around the zodiac because of the wobble.  So 2,000 years ago during the Spring Equinox the Sun was entering the Pisces constellation, but now during the Spring equinox it enters the Aquarius constellation.

Wait hold on…that’s not even all of it.  This also means that were Aries used to be the beginning of the astrological new year, according to the Sun’s journey, now the new cycle actually kicks off in Pisces.  Yep, that’s right. Pisces is no longer at the end of the wheel but at the beginning.  How is that for having your mind blown.  Oh.. so much has changed….  And why are we not being educated properly on what’s really going on in our skies?

There is a lot of incoherent and misleading information which unfortunately leaves room for error. One thing that you should also take into consideration is your moon sign (which is the position of the Moon during your time of birth).  It is the second most important placement in your natal chart, after the Sun.  Your personality is defined by your Sun Sign but the Moon rules your emotional nature.  The Vedic astrology goes by the Moon sign rather then the Sun sign as in the Tropical astrology.

Vedic-AstrologyVedic astrology is a little bit closer.  Their Siderael chart is closer to the actual movement of the Sun, but it is not 100% accurate as well.  Supposedly this is not new information.  Western astrology, Tropical,  is based on the seasons as opposed to the stars, as in Sidereal which is used by Vedic astrologers in the East.  Then there is Real Time astrology, otherwise known as Astronomy Astrology.  They follow a chart that is perfectly aligned with the actual movements in the sky as it is right now.  Not as                                                                 it was 3,000 years ago.

This leaving us with the question of what to follow as our true mandala.  What do I think?  I think that they are all relevant.  We are born into certain morphic fields and resonate with the people around us.  So if you were born in the West or to parents who follow the Tropical astrology you are already resonating with that energy.  Tribal conditioning is a strong force among us and it does influence your life more than you know.

Vedic astrology has been known to be more accurate and considered preventive astrology.  It can be very useful to use as a tool to look into the future and peer at the possibilities that can occur and best ways to prevent experiences we may want to avoid.  It’s all about how they read your chart.  It seems to be more action based on how you can navigate through life instead of how life is going to happen to you.  So if you are born in the East and are born into parents and a society whom believe in the Sidereal or Vedic astrology then that tribal conditioning also is influencing your life.

And if you align yourself properly with the real rhythm of the sun as in Real Time or Astronomy astrology then you will be more aware and more in sync with nature and I believe it will be the most accurate.

When people tell me their Sun sign I automatically convert their real sign in my head.  So for me, I am in Libra according to the Tropical astrology but Real Time the Sun was in the constellation of Virgo at the time of my birth.  So I would be a Libra-Virgo.  For me, when I do this it helps me to understand their personalities a little bit more because it’s almost as if that information is shining some light on the real nature of people.  Why not just go based off of the real one?  Because personally, I think it’s important to take into consideration the tribal influence which has conditioned a person most of their life.  You are also resonating with the cultural view that “I am a Libra” just by  born to parents and a society whom heavily believe in the Tropical astrology.  I know, I know it sounds all Matrixy but real life that’s how things are.  Your natal chart is basically a snapshot of the skies at your time of birth and that is the energy that you are bringing into this world.  Therefore it would be a really good thing to know what that image really looked like.

That is what you use your natal chart for.   Truth is we attract what we resonate with.  If you don’t take action in your life and just go with the flow sure, certain situations may seem like they just happen to you.  But if you can see what is coming ahead use the high points to your advantage and learn how to transition your way through the low ones then you have learned how to read your map and navigate through it.  And that is how you move through life with ease.  Never underestimate your power to create the best life possible despite your situation.  We create our destiny every moment with every decision we make, one at a time.  Don’t make it too confusing though.  Ask Eternal Spark or the Universe to show you what is relevant to you on your journey through life.
