Reveals the "pot of gold" Within YOUR Planetary Cycles

Posts tagged ‘VALUES’

Full Moon in Taurus…

At 6:53a MST November 14th, the Moon sits in opposition to the Sun, creating the Full Moon phase. The Moon will be at 22 degrees of Taurus 38′ and the Sun, 22 degrees of Scorpio 38′. The Full Moon reflects the unconscious desires of the Sun/Soul at this time.

dsc05068Looking back to the New Moon in Scorpio October 30th, what fears have you faced and surpassed these past two weeks? What is this Full Moon Illuminating for you? Bringing a bright flashlight or spotlight for you to SEE clearly that once was hiding for dear life within your Inner Darkness? What has been revealed into the Light for your awareness?

Taurus rules the throat, the thyroid gland, your ability to Speak Your Truth! Any issues with your throat this Full Moon brings your attention/awareness towards what you aren’t able to, or are afraid to, speak up about!

The Scorpio portion of the program (via the Sun’s Light) shows us clearly how much MORE passion we are allowing to flow within our lives, compared to where we were October 30th. Or, are you passionately fearful? Or, perhaps passionately fearless?

Venus rules Taurus, and therefore this Full Moon, which some are calling a Supermoon. The last time a Full Moon was in Taurus AND this close to Earth, was back in January 1948. Interesting. How close and loud does it have to get for you to VALUE yourself? Feel WORTHY? BE content with your lot in life? Are you like the Taurean Bull, contentedly chewing your cud in a lovely fragrant, alive pasture surrounded by warm sunshine and green growth, birds chirping, insects buzzing by? Taking your time to smell those roses, BE in Nature, and ruminate about what you truly VALUE in life?

dsc05024Taurus rules the 2nd House of Life Experience in the birth chart. Venus, as ruler, beckons us to work (some might call it bull-work) within our own strength of character, the values we grew up with, the values we work out to BE our own (not someone else’s or society’s – MINE) that enriches our self-esteem and self-confidence and WORTHINESS. All of this, in turn, is wrapped within our unique set of talents, skills and experience we bring to the table of Life that assists each of us to “bring home the bacon” aka income. Which in turn we use to buy or experience those things we value. Business to business – B2B – Venus in Capricorn – what do you Desire from the businesses you use? How do they value you as a customer/client/partner? How do you value them? Is there a dovetailing of values or a gap?

Within the Full Moon chart, I see a YOD – that Finger of God – pointing to the Sun’s position within Scorpio. The vital and active part of our Soul (Sun) that incarnated down here on Earth to feel the range of emotions – the DEPTH of them – that cannot be experienced anywhere else in the Universe the way we can here. The Finger of God begins with the Vertex (Vx) in Gemini’s air element – fated/destined conversations, information, data we’ve had/gathered and then share with one another – mixed with the trio of players within Aries: Uranus + Eris + Ceres – all Rx (retrograde) turning their energies inward, personalizing it. Uranus brings Unexpected Change; Eris brings our awareness to an aspect of Self we’ve been reluctant to invite to the table of our Life; and Ceres brings much-needed nurturance/sustenance.

Aries is the cardinal fire of instinctual Self – BE in the MOMENT, BE spontaneous, BE Instinctual – without editing yourself for others. Aries also brings forth the Inner Warrior, Inner Explorer and Inner Pioneer – what aspect of your Inner Character have you been reluctant to assert? To explore deeper? To seek new IN-Roads of your True Self to be seen and heard by others?

dsc05049Combining the Aries players with the Vertex in Gemini – what fated/destined awareness, knowledge, conversations, intertwined with “BECAUSE of your assertive curiosity + courage to try something NEW” shoots renewed energy to BE passionate Within YOURSELF and Your Life – ONLY if you allow those old patterns of conditioning to be let go. What are those patterns? Not noticing those times of fated/destined opportunities to JUMP INTO your Courage, INTO your Assertiveness, INTO your Curiosity, to EXPLORE new worlds, Within and Without, that brings you CLOSER to YOUR PASSION!

Your Ego-Self/brain will do all it can to prevent you from showing up, deciding to take that Leap of Faith, to DO something Different! BE aware of your inner resistance – this is a good sign! Breathe deeply and DIVE anyway! BE the passion. BE the awareness. FEEL the fear and DO IT anyway. During this Full Moon phase, with this Supermoon energy IN YOUR FACE anyway – what have you got to lose? Besides an opportunity?

Venus, as ruler of this Supermoon/Full Moon in Taurus, currently resides within Capricorn – brings forth our Desires for Better/More material gain. “When will it BE my time? When will my ship come in?” Full Moon in Taurus – go buy a lottery ticket! Challenge your Inner Worthiness! Are you worthy/worthwhile to WIN the jackpot yet? Seriously, I am asking you. ARE YOU WORTHY to receive ALL the BEST THINGS the Universe has to offer? Is it TIME yet, for you to ALLOW this in, to be received, taken and do with as you choose?

dsc05011And just as my previous post stated, both Neptune Rx and South Node Rx are at 09 degrees of Pisces during this Full Moon. Chiron is at 20 degrees of Scorpio 48′, also Rx, and sends a love line to the Sun’s position in Scorpio. Water to Water. Pisces’ nebulousness to Scorpio’s iciness. The Sun can melt some of that ice – is your Ego-Self willing to go there to reveal your True Self’s passionate nature? Despite the fear? Will Neptune and the South Node reveal your Karma from past lives, that seems to BE in your face, now? Neptune likes to dissolve illusions/delusions our Ego-Self created to survive past traumas/events. Is it TIME to allow the dissolution of it all yet? Or are the fears of the Ego-Self winning? Let’s return to Aries’ Cup of Courage and drink deeply…to let those old patterns of conditioning dissolve too….

The US Election of last week is still a hot topic – I plan to write yet another post about the US chart and Pluto at 15 degrees of Capricorn’s cardinal earth sign. Cardinal is about New Beginnings. Capricorn is all about material gain. The old guard is dying – what will President-elect Trump learn for himself as he learns to be President and works at being the CEO of the United States? Pluto’s transit through Capricorn since 2008 (until 2024) has been transforming HOW we DO material gain in the world – globally – and at home. Pluto is bringing it HOME. Some aspect of HOW the United States’ beliefs about material gain have already toppled and died (Pluto is all about life/death/rebirth). What MORE can possibly occur these next 8 years? Stay tuned!

dsc05004Enjoy the Moonlight tonight and tomorrow and Tuesday. Bask in your worth, value your commitment to building, hands-on, your daily bread-winning ways. BE in Nature (especially with the lovely weather of late!) and enjoy what you ALREADY HAVE. Envision (Neptune) a more passionately (Scorpio) sustaining future with all the good things this Earth can provide (Taurus). Take Unexpected Action (Uranus in Aries), invite that part of yourself that has been restless and wanting to join the party of your Life (Eris), and nurture ALL of You (Ceres) as best you can this Full Moon. Celebrate, value yourself, and your life.

NAMASTE

eVALUating our Perspective of Worth – New Moon in Taurus

Flowering Blossoms 2016

The Sun and Moon came together in the same position in our celestial sky yesterday, creating the New Moon phase, at 1:31p MDT at 16 degrees of Taurus 41′. The light of the Sun, our vital energy and soul source, over-shadows the Light of the Moon’s emotional / intuitional energy, and the unconscious intention/fears of our Ego-self in this Moon phase. By Full Moon some aspect of our unconsciousness is Illuminated to us, if we are willing to look, and embrace it.

The themes (according to Jan Spiller’s ‘New Moon Astrology’) of the fixed earth sign of Taurus are:

  • Money! How we attract it, use it to gain our material comforts, what we desire to own and possess. With Mercury Rx (retrograde) moving back through Taurus since April 29th, all of this has been on our minds. Especially those of us living here in Alberta, Canada, with this week’s focus upon Fort McMurray’s devastating forest fires that drove its population of 88,000 souls out, and completely engulfing the whole town. The town is gone. Act of God or humanly set?
  • Sensual Pleasure. Here Taurus brings forth ALL our senses, including the need to DO something with our hands, literally. Gardening, creating art, building something of value for others to see, hear, touch, taste, or feel. We zero in on physical comforts too, aromas of the blossoms and flowering shrubs floating through the air, and waking up our taste buds via the vegetables and fruits/berries we look forward each Spring.
  • Contentment. How contented are you with your life and what you have going in it? If not, why not? What do you need? What do you Desire? What do you Value? How can you attract it? What is your intention? Keeping to the simple pleasures, such as a walk in Nature? What do you appreciate and have gratitude for?
  • Perseverance. This is what is required for our money goals (or whatever Desire goal we have in mind) – to Keep on Keeping On – no matter the struggles, Ego-Self resistance/denials/illusions and delusions. If unemployment is high in your locale, do you give up or do you resist the ‘o woe is us’ perspective and keep looking despite the nay-sayers? How much do you value your Desires? What are you willing to do to make the goal a reality?
  • Patience. Yes, that Bull in the sunny pasture, eyeing an enticing distraction across the way – eVALUating whether it is WORTH the effort to lumber onto its feet, and move, or let that opportunity pass by for yet a better morsel to show itself? Again VALUE – how high or low is your value system? And how do you apply it and to what and when? What motivates you to action? Is it from a place of Fear or Love? Are you reliable, staying the course toward that goal? Do you show up or just pay lip service for the benefit of others?
  • Self-Worth. Here is the crux of the issues most of us grapple with. Am I worthy? Is it worthwhile to expend the time, energy and sweat to attain whatever it is I truly Desire? Venus rules both Taurus and Libra – Taurus is all about how I can create this on my own, with my own hands and personal resources, talents and skills that I bring to the table. Libra does so in partnership/relationship. Right now, what are YOU bringing to the table that you feel/know/think to be WORTHWHILE? Is the effort worth it? Are you worth it? Self-esteem, self-confidence, self-respect, self-love, self-acceptance all have a say in how WORTHY you feel/think/know yourself to be. What are your boundaries? What is your value system? What ARE values? See Dr Demartini’s Valuation Process on his website – very inSIGHTful!
  • Releasing Stubbornness. Yes, fixed earth, stubborn as a Bull at times of change. Do you go willingly or with mucho resistance? Or a combination? Here the fear of change comes into play. The opposite sign to Taurus is Scorpio, ruled by Pluto, the Lord of Transformation of Ego-Self deep-seated fears. Trust issues abound – of self and others. Trusting others to tell us the truth but perhaps not the whole truth. At least not any truth that brings us face-to-face OUTSIDE the illusions we have constructed for ourselves that we believed to be Truth. Wanting to run and hide, or come out and bite – these are the behaviors of denial of our Ego-Self. Because Taurus is about comfort, safety and security. Why would any self-respecting Ego want to leave this behind for the Unknown and explore that new territory? Keeping the Status Quo does have its price. Stagnation, attachment to Past achievements without looking in the Now Moment for new Desires to achieve further growth. Being possessive – holding on too tight, refusing to let go – of stuff, ideals, beliefs about yourself. How does this support inner soul growth?
  • Physically, Taurus rules: coughs; the throat, chin and neck; the thyroid gland; your voice and vocal cords. You will know when you stand in your WORTHINESS, feel VALUED, BE of VALUE, and when you are not. These areas of your body will speak out – laryngitis, sore throats and coughing – all signs of suppressing your value and worth. Speak up and ask for what you want and Desire – no one truly reads our minds! If your needs are not being met, whose fault is that, truly?

It will be interesting for all of us to ‘see’ what is Illuminated by Full Moon (May 21st) of our perspective of self that we had no inkling about prior to this Moon cycle. Regarding our Desires (Venus) of WORTH, our VALUES and goals (Taurus).

2016 April MorningWe continue to experience an Earth Grand Trine – being hands-on with the need to create something solid – see the fruits of our labours actualized – literally in some regard. That is of lasting VALUE, WORTHWHILE in the doing of it. By you, for you. Not for the world at large.

There will be some Destined/fated transformation coming from Pluto pulling back the carpet of what/how we VALUE material gain in our life. What does it MEAN to you? What are you willing to let go of (fleeing an awesome forest fire, leaving all your worldly goods behind you, literally) to walk into the Unknown for, TRUSTING in self and the Unknown realms that all will be well and work out for the good of all?

Jupiter and the North Node, both Rx, will expand and amplify the need to move FORWARD toward our respective Soul’s urgings re: how and where and when to BE of Service, going with the flow, yet following some rules of protocol and engagement. And this New Moon pairing with Mercury Rx and Vesta (focused concentration) of being mindful of our values, worth/worthiness/is it all worthwhile.

Heartfelt Love and Light is sent to ALL the people (and the animals!) who lived and worked in Fort McMurray, Alberta Canada – know that you will be supported and valued far beyond what now looks like the ashes of your life as you once knew it. BE the Phoenix and rise above what was, and fly towards what will BE! Trust, have Faith, and know all of Alberta is coming forward with open arms and hearts in your time of need!

Blessed BE!

Mercury Rx in Taurus, April 28 – May 22, 2016

Mercury begins to Station Rx (retrograde – seemingly about to move backwards) for the second time this year. On April 28th at 11:20a MDT Mercury begins the logical vacation it takes three times yearly. This round has Mercury going back over the same degrees it travelled directly through since April 14th, bringing a chance to rethink, respeak, reprocess thoughts and conversations we’ve had until April 28th.

As Mercury turns Rx, the usual outward and direct energy turns inward for further reflection. What have I said, thought about and learned of that now needs some time to percolate? This includes how we talk to ourselves. Lovingly or not so much?

The degrees and sign Mercury is revisiting will be between 14 degrees of Taurus 20′ and 23 degrees of Taurus and 35′. Wherever this range of longitude resides in your birth chart is where your “do-over” occurs until May 22nd when it Stations Direct again at 7:20a MDT.

Mercury in Taurus brings out our value systems for review, what we value about the collection of skills, talents and personal resources we have to offer in the world. How are you showing up with them? Are some hidden? Why? Are you ashamed of showing those skills? Do you not feel worthy of having them? Perhaps you have natural talents untested by degrees and certificates that seem to be required in today’s job market? What do you VALUE about yourself?

If you are having difficulty determining what values are, let alone what yours are, consider this link to Dr. Demartini’s Valuation exercisehttps://drdemartini.com/value_determination/determine_your_values – and see for yourself. I have done this exercise a few times within the past three years. Whenever I seem to undergo a major inner transition time I feel the need to re-evaluate myself via my values. Could be because I have my Moon in Taurus and South Node right beside it. I need to feel (Moon) what I value now compared to where I was in the past (South Node). And to do so tactily (Taurus).

Taurus also brings forth the need to connect sensuously – as in ALL our senses – not just the mind! Hence smells, tastes, feelings, what we see, hear and touch will all combine to show our way forward, mindfully, after this Mercury Rx period completes itself. I also include my 6th sense – intuitive insights – into the mix.

Taurus, ruled by Venus, asks us , “What do you want to create by yourself (vs. the other sign Venus rules, Libra, wishing to create WITH someone else – via partnership and relationship). Taurus is a fixed earth sign – hands-on, tactile, actually creating something you can physically pass on to another. Dedicated to the task at hand, concentrated effort and energy to get the job done! Hence all the workmanship of woodworking comes to mind – detail work of embroidery, lace-making, artwork, design, cooking, baking – you see the theme.

Taurus in your chart shows where you generate something physical to share with others. For me it is two-fold: I have Taurus within my 9th House of being teacher, creating handouts for my clients and Astrology students – something they can refer to into the future after the readings and classes are long over. I am also student here – so the copious amounts of notes I create as I study and research topics I am interested in.

Taurus straddles into my 10th House of my professional/public life. Here, when I work in office jobs, I tend to create procedural manuals, collecting all the knowledge and processes of how to do this job into one source, for future referral by others when I am long gone. I have also brought this talent into community newsletters I’ve written about recycling as a volunteer. Do you see how this could translate into your life?

Mercury Transits through the Houses (according to Robert Hand’s Planets in Transit) show possible themes being retraced in your life at this time, depending on where Taurus falls in your birth chart:

  • 1st House: expressing your point of view to others – with Taurus I’d say via the written word mostly – emails, texts, letters. Yet with all your others senses at play – be creative!
  • 2nd House: Taurus rules this House, therefore you will attentively be drawn to what you value in life – materially, intellectually or spiritually – and how to plan for them, negotiate property or loans, your financial planning time of year (we Canadians have been sending in our Income Tax returns before the April 30th deadline!). Good time to explore and define what YOUR values truly are (see that link above).
  • 3rd House: Mercury rules this House, therefore his energies will intensify via group discussions/conversations, network and meet new people, possible local travel, with more connections with relatives, the people you live with and your neighbours.
  • 4th House: here you’ll withdraw from the world to reflect upon all the ideas you’ve encountered since April 14th especially. Examine your personal and domestic life, with immediate family discussions.
  • 5th House: A great time to journal about Self, expressing your thoughts creatively, then sharing them with others. Use the mind for amusement via reading, writing, playing games that require mental agility.
  • 6th House: Two categories here – Work and Health. At work pay more attention to detail, using the best processes possible. Plan carefully, work out the details in advance so there are no surprises. You can be critical of others here and be careless of other’s Ego needs. Healthwise – can feel nervous or anxious about non-rational fears. You may become concerned about your health and exercise regimen or at least have your attention drawn to it in some regard.
  • 7th House: Excellent time to clarify and explain issues to close relationship peeps in your life (friends, partners, clients, coworkers). Also a good time to consult with a professional on an issue you are concerned about.
  • 8th House: Here we tend to take time for deep, inward reflection about the truth of self – anything hidden, especially those Ego-based fears you’ve been hiding from yourself. You may have to deal with joint resources and property issues at this time.
  • 9th House: Excellent time for study or further education – or at least looking into future courses you’d like to take. Eager for knowledge and new experiences, wanting to see the bigger picture in your life, how the many parts make up the whole of your Life Purpose.
  • 10th House: Plans for your professional life and perhaps a club or organization that you can volunteer in that expresses you in the outer world.
  • 11th House: You’ll be thinking about dreams and wishes, goals for your next year of Life Experience. Time to reflect on previous goals – have they come to fruition? If not, why? How well did they manifest? Are these goals your own or something others wanted for you instead? Examine attitudes re: group ideals and standards – where do you stand?
  • 12th House: Here is the Hidden Self House – so you may tend to keep what you’re thinking and feeling to yourself. Or, become more in touch with these hidden aspects of yourself, spiritually, via unconscious drives of your personality showing themselves to you via meditation, yoga etc.

Remember, each Mercury Rx timing or transit brings any or all of the following:

  • Expect the Unexpected – via information you didn’t know you needed to know! From a book, a TV show, a conversation, chance encounter with an old acquaintence or stranger, or something technical breaking down – aka computers, phones, cars, office machines – anything electrical that brings us communication or ability to travel locally.
  • Pay Attention! Your mind needs to BE in the Moment – otherwise you’ll miss an error, create an accident, miss an opportunity to create something new (Taurus) that you might not have connected the dots to before now. Double and triple check those documents and contracts! Don’t sign anything unless you absolutely ‘feel’ it is right to do so.
  • Think outside the logic box – play with the thoughts, brainstorm with others, look at all sides rather than just the usual side. Our mental focus and attention shifts – and when Mercury is Rx, away from logic. Creative troubleshooting via feeling your way, intuiting new avenues of direction and process.
  • Be conscious of your words – and their affect on others. What is true for self to be direct and up front may be felt as a slap for someone who is more sensitive. Delivery of your conversation, no matter the heartfelt intention, can be misconstrued. Hence why I love Mercury Rx – a chance for a do-over! Perhaps in person next time?
  • Speaking of – when was the last time you listened to your Inner Talk with yourself? I mean honestly listened to the rote of it? Any bad habits creating a rut? Bring in more loving and creative means. Think of your Inner Talk as if you were talking to a dear friend – would you take to them the way you talk to yourself? Hhhmmm…
  • People from the past – colleagues, friends, allies, groups you belonged to –  someone will come forward at some point to reconnect. Information you didn’t know you needed to know….
  • Once Mercury Stations Direct again May 22nd, we have the post-Rx Shadow timing of yet another do-over! Direct again – where we were at April 14-28th! This will last until Mercury returns to 23 degrees of Taurus – June 7th! Here is yet another opportunity to directly communication what you value, however that may look.

Yes there will be mishandled communications, tasks dropped, calls misconnected, you name it. There is always a reason to the WHY of it. Be patient, watch your stubbornness to hold the party line or just your own line, rather than allowing to ‘see’ the other’s opinion and point of view. Create something of lasting value, Within and Without.

Blessed BE!

New Moon in Taurus, Plus Mercury Retrograde!

8 Moon Phases

8 Moon Phases

Another Moon cycle is behind us now. What did you learn from it, about yourself, AND what have you left behind that no longer needs to be a part of you?

More importantly, is there anything further to learn from, that you bring with you as of this current New Moon cycle? Remember this: a cycle may end, yet it also BEGINS something anew all at the same time. By the last phase of each Moon cycle, the Balsamic Moon phase, we all trust we are allowing something within us to die off, to be let go of, in some regard. Creating NEW space for the new seed of the next New Moon phase to be planted, watered and grown into new inner growth.

Both the Moon and Sun sat at 26 degrees of Taurus 56′ as of 10:14pm MDT Sunday night, well within this middle phase of our Spring growing season. The grass is green now, the blossoms are out on the trees, and the bulbs are finally showing their colourful flowers – yay! I love Spring.

Mock Plum Blossoms 2015

The themes of Taurus bring the following:

  • Values: what do YOU value in your life these days? How are YOU of value, too? What talents, skills and other personal resources do you bring to the table when it comes to the work you do, to attract money, which in turn is used to buy what you value? What goals do you set for this?
  • The senses: Taurus, as a fixed earth sign, gets down and dirty to WORK and really GROW – and stimulates ALL of our senses whilst doing so. Seeing, smelling, hearing, touching and tasting all the signs of Spring around us, and how that stimulates us deep within too!
  • Contentment: BE like the Taurus Bull, find a sunny or shady spot out in nature, and just BE with nature – immerse yourself within it. Take time out to smell those lilacs about to burst forth, the apple blossoms, May Day tree blossoms – whatever is at hand. Enjoy the bounty that is Mother Nature down here on Earth. Abundance is free for the seeing, every time you leave your home!
  • Money: how do you treat your money? Is there fear there? Or is there love? According to Bob Proctor and his book, You Were Born Rich, we can ALL BE abundant if only we LOVE our servant, Money. As we Master its energy, we create and attract MORE of it – somewhat like a BEE to honey, eh? Watch how the bees flit from one flower to another, busy collecting the energy (pollen) to take back along their journey home, leaving a dusting of pollen everywhere they fly, inviting MORE abundance to grow.
  • Money that comes from Work: here is where we can create new ways and ideas of DOING work – there is always ANOTHER way to bring in that bacon. How creative are you, in tangible, hands-on ways (earth sign) to produce a service or product that others think of VALUE, and in turn, attracts money your way? Watch those birds and bees now, they find interesting ways to DO their work, every day.
  • Physical Health: Taurus rules the throat, chin and neck, the thyroid gland, our voice and vocal cords. If we aren’t “giving voice” to our ideas and thoughts, if we aren’t BEing heard, or are suppressing what needs to be said, watch out for sore throats or laryngitis to come along. As we age the thyroid gland shrivels, especially in our Western society where agism, BEing an Elder and BEing noticed for our wisdom is mostly disregarded. I love that ZOOMER magazine is around, and actors Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, Martin Sheen and Sam Waterston are currently in a NEW TV show, Grace & Frankie, that is hilarious yet also poignant when it comes to aging, changing, and finally owning up to BE their authentic selves. WHEN we speak up and HOW we speak up, affects others around us, always. Learn to speak your mind, when it needs to, otherwise we are lying to self and others all at the same time. It may not be easy to do, yet in the long run, it serves ALL of us, better.

This Moon cycle also brings our second round of MERCURY RETROGRADE (Rx)!! We have already navigated the pre-Rx Shadow timing from May 4 – May 18th. Mercury stations Rx as of 7:50p MDT today at 13 degrees of Gemini 08′, preparing to move BACK along the degrees it already traveled (since May 4th) down to 04 degrees Gemini 35′ when it stations Direct again June 12th. Then the post-Rx Shadow period lasts until June 26th, when Mercury regains where it was before turning Rx.

Note where Gemini is in your chart – this will be the area that you revisit these next several weeks, wrapping your mindset, your thoughts and conversations around! For me, this encompasses my 10th House of Career and Pubic Life/Face – all right on time!

I look forward to every Mercury Rx period (we usually see three of them a year) because of the conversations I get to revisit, the new (and returning) friends I meet up with, the need to BE creative mind-wise, thinking outside the usual logic box, and Expecting the Unexpected to show itself! And there is that gem, finding out what I didn’t know I needed to know – about some aspect of ME or my world, somehow. All in Divine good timing…

Here the planet Mercury gives us all a logic holiday, to BE like a child and just allow that creative right brain to run free – yay! Anything goes (and normally does!) giving all of us a chance to revisit that problem or issue that’s been bothering us, to FIND a new way to solve it or BE with it.

I also find I clear up paperwork, organize closets and drawers, do the spring cleaning with MORE ease and grace because the logic brain (aka Ego self) isn’t getting in the way with excuses of “why NOT and let’s DO something else, eh?”

Spring 2015

Spring 2015

We also find creative ideas that seem to pop out of nowhere, CLARIFYING what was niggling us before. Mercury Rx throughout the sign it naturally rules, Gemini, means that social butterfly is networking with others, managing to gather ye data and SHARE it with others. Information gathering for whatever reason is now having a period of “let’s take another look at that, shall we? Brainstorm a bit more, shake out the flotsam/jetsam of unwanted words, thoughts, actions that were getting in they way. Let’s talk about that more, shall we?” and on and on.

Most of us know that any new undertaking (via contract or agreement) signed off on during a Mercury Rx period brings challenges that keep on keeping on for weeks, if not months, into the future. So a word of caution between now and June12th: double or triple-check those documents, emails, voice-mails, contracts etc., before sending them off. There WILL be typos, wrong dates, forgotten elements therein otherwise, creating MORE work or misunderstandings later on, to be undone, redone, or not done at all.

The Expect the Unexpected intrigues me – plans can go sideways beyond our control (which the Ego self does NOT enjoy) – all in aid of showing us just how MUCH control our respective Ego selves still want over our lives. It may be loud; it may not be pretty. It will be timely, as it always is (but not, according to that wee Ego self….just saying…).

Red Tulip, Central Memorial Park, 2015

Red Tulip, Central Memorial Park, 2015

Shaking things up is what keeps us on our toes to BE more at one with “going with the flow” (Gemini is a mutable air sign) and KNOW there is a REASON for the traffic jam ahead (because someone in your party is running late and needs more time to meet you), or that you cannot FIND that scarf or tie or piece of paper (causing you to use another colour or create from scratch something that reads BETTER than the same-old same-old).

Enjoy your renewed sense of HUMOUR these next weeks (towards SELF and others!), and know there is a greater reason for the so-called disarray within your mind and everyone else’s! Laugh more, hug more, and BE with each other more – content yourselves with BEing in these days of Spring, growing MORE into the values of your life – not what others value – yet don’t dismiss what others SEE within you that you may NOT value!

Gemini rules our SELF TALK too – how honest, loving and helpful are YOU within yourself, to yourself? Check your thoughts out now too – drop that stick of self-flagellation – and give yourself a good HUG instead! The Sun will enter Gemini as of May 21st, meaning there will be more LIGHT on this Gemini subject for all of us to learn from!

Blessed BE!
