7 Gemini

11:40 a.m. Pacific / 2:40 pm Eastern

The Sun moved into Gemini  on May 21, turning the energetic spotlight on Communication (both listening & speaking), Networking, Socializing, Mental pursuits, and Motion/Activity.  We spend more time outdoors enjoying the warming weather and the bloom of flowers and trees.  It really is a time where we find ourselves in more sociable settings – BBQ’s, Family get-togethers, Weddings, Graduations and the celebration of Father’s.  We also witness the opening shot of vacation season with the first 3-Day weekend – in the USA anyways – Memorial Day, where millions of traveler’s will go camping, to visit relatives, or just make trips to parks for outdoor recreation – all things Gemini!

The New Moon in Gemini occurs on May 28, 2014 at 11:40 am Pacific / 2:40 pm Eastern time at 7° Gemini.  The New Moon is a time that promotes growth and initiation.  It is a well known fact that things begun under a new moon prosper and grow stronger faster.  This is true whether we’re talking crops, hair, fingernails or our wishes/intentions.  Timing is everything and the new moon is perfect timing for creating new beginnings in our lives.  And, if we join the new beginning to the personal placement of the new moon sign (in this case, Gemini) in our charts, then we are in alignment with the flow of the universal energies.

What are the areas in our lives that are ruled by Gemini energy?  Here are a few examples:

Things in Motion:  Cars, Mechanics, Short trips, Restless energy, Over-excitement

Learning/Study:  Facts, Education, Books/Magazines/Newspapers, the Internet

Communication:  Speaking, Listening, Teaching, Writing, Advertising/Marketing

The Mind:  Cleverness, Witty,  Mental Awareness & Acuity, Curiosity

Social Skills:  Tact, Quick thinking, Sociable, Amenable, Enjoying the moment

Relationships ruled by Gemini:  Brothers, Sisters, Neighbors, Roommates

Overactive Mental Characteristics:  Restlessness, Indecision, Superficiality,  Questioning everything

In the Body Physical:  Hands, Wrists, Arms, Shoulders, Lungs, Nervous system

One of the most powerful things we can do at the New Moon is to make changes in our lives, or set powerful intentions for the direction we desire to move in.  What would you like to create in your life?  Use the New Moon energy to explore your options and connect with something new!

Star of David Today and Grand Water Trine for the Week

images1

A Star of David forms briefly today with two interlocking Grand Trines – one in Water and one in Earth.  In Kabbalah the Star of David is a symbol of unity. It is thought to represent the absolute rule of the Divine over the Universe in all directions: North, South, East, West, Up and Down, making up a six-sided Star of David.  This configuration represents the unification of humanity’s dualistic nature via two Grand Trines, as the Star of David consists of two interlocking, equilateral triangles.

Water Grand Trine:
Jupiter in Cancer
Chiron in Pisces
Saturn in Scorpio

Earth Grand Trine:
Moon in Virgo
Pluto in Capricorn
The Sun in Taurus

The intertwining of these two Grand Trines creates a harmonious unity of the physical, 3d reality with the intuitive, emotional realm and opens the door to significant growth potential. It’s a conception of Earth and Water to form new life. Make sure you actively choose what good you want to create in your life and use this day to manifest it into the real world.

Our friend the Cardinal Cross is still with us, although it isn’t as strong as it was.  We are still being shown the potential for new openings in our lives.  Sometimes that opening comes through our willingness to let something go ~ a rocky relationship, a job, an old way of being, or even a physical object.  The Cardinal Cross can be particularly powerful now in the shadow of the upcoming Full Moon across Taurus and Scorpio on May 14, 2014.  The Full Moon here demands that we let go and release that which no longer resonates with our Values and our Personal Path.  Moving forward now requires us to align ourselves with what “feels” right for us.

The Grand Water Trine part of the Star of David will be with us through next week.  It is made up of Jupiter in Cancer, Saturn in Scorpio and Chiron in Pisces.  This is a distinctly feminine energy, attuning us to guidance from our intuition and unseen guides, angels, and helpers.  By becoming more open and receptive we learn the power to “Receive” – think about the possibility of showers of abundance flowing into your lives, the potential for receiving exactly that which you need to move forward, and healing those emotional shadows that have held you back in the past.  The potential – I feel – is enormous.  Especially as we have been working this angle astrologically for several months now.  The addition of the Grand Earth Trine between the Sun in Taurus, Moon in Virgo and Pluto in Capricorn – albeit a short formation – adds an element of grounding of our hopes, dreams, aspirations into reality.  We are guided to the practical and productive things that we can do to effect our growth and evolution.

The key themes coming up next week:

  • Values, and aligning yourself with what is authentic to you
  • The natural abundance of the world we live in and how we can tap into that flowing stream
  • Practical action steps – What do I have to let go of to move forward?  Can I move forward fearlessly and empowered?
  • Passion and Creativity

Another interesting facet of this week is that the Full Moon in Taurus/Scorpio – which really represents our letting go of whatever is standing in the way of us being Abundant, Creative, and our Authentic True Selves – falls on a God Frequency day.

5 + 14 + 2014 = 17/8  “God Frequency”

Based on the word G O D which is calculated by G=7, O = 6, D = 4 :  7 + 6 + 4 = 17/8

According to Celebrity Numerologist, Michelle Arbeau, “The word God shows us why we’re all here, regardless of our individual path and purpose. You could liken it to our global purpose as humans. As a species, we are the only ones who can consciously communicate verbally so the word God breaks down like this: We are here on Earth to verbally express (1 is verbal self-expression number) the truths of the divine (7 is truth-seeker number) for the purpose of spreading wisdom and knowledge for soul’s growth (8).

The God frequency is particularly heightened because of the full moon so we can take advantage of our abilities as conscious creators. It’s an ah-ha, breakthrough and high communication energy day. We should be aware of the words we use today in particular because they are wise words of wisdom filtering through.”

So my friends, there is huge potential for us all in the days ahead.  Live authentically, intuitively and passionately!  And, have a stellar week!

 

May Astrology – Venus in Aries and Mars Rx Ends

venus-aries-300x300

Venus, the planet of Love, Relationships, Values and Money, moves into Aries today at 6:21 pm PDT/9:21 pm EDT.  Here she will join the line of planets that have been through this sign recently, and she will trigger the Grand Cardinal Cross point, the Pluto-Uranus square by conjuncting Uranus, and pass across the Eris point.  Although April is probably the single most astrologically active month for 2014, Venus’ transit through Aries is also going to be big news for the month of May.

Venus entering Aries puts her in mutual reception with Mars in Libra.  When planets are in mutual reception they are in the sign of the other planet’s rulership which creates an easier flow of energy between the two signs and planets.  Venus rules the feminine principle and Mars the masculine.  While in Aries, Venus “armor’s up” while Mars softens up.  For us as individuals we have easier access to both the masculine and feminine energies during this time.

Venus in Aries is independent, feisty, idealistic in nature and passionate.  Love becomes inspired by both Aries & Libran traits, like freedom, equality and justice.  Venus is in her morning star phase until October 2014, and when she is in that phase she is more outgoing and shows her more adventurous side in love and relationships.  This makes for more honest, direct and independent in relationships, while making us more desirous of being self-sufficient within the relationship.

Venus in Aries opens us up to more loving and creative energies – especially for the Fire and Cardinal signs – Aries, Libra, Cancer, Capricorn, Leo and Sagittarius.  These signs could see an increase in socializing, dating and even the possibility of a new love interest.  Venus is emboldened in Aries and dares to take emotional risks, including boldly following “instant attraction” into new relationships.  But, beware of hasty commitments as that adventurous energy can wear off as time moves forward and leave you wondering what you got yourself into!

For those of you already in long term relationships, you may see an increase in arguments and confrontations as each of us are more headstrong and opinionated during this kind of transit.  Don’t force issues between you – seek compromise by searching for win-win solutions to your problems.  There is so much to be gained when you can work with both masculine and feminine energies in your relationships.

Venus in Aries effects our creativity in two ways.  One, it creates a drive for self-expression in us.  We want to be more creative, and we want to share that with others.  And, two, it pushes us to start on creative projects that we didn’t have the energy to do before or to start projects that we lacked the confidence to do before.

Since the planet Venus also rules Money, Resources and Values, when she’s in Aries we may spend more freely on things of art or beauty, or we may find that we are more impulsive in our spending as we buy things that strike our fancy in the moment regardless of whether we need it, or can even afford it.  So buyer beware.  Because Venus in Aries signifies boldness, we may find more confidence in claiming our Value & Worth.  You may also come face to face with conflicts in your life that are born out of low self-worth, confidence or esteem that you will finally find the courage to change in yourself!

As if the fiery energy of Venus in Aries isn’t enough, odependent pattersn and use this energy to see your relationships as a mirror to claim your power and uniqueness.  This is breakthrough energy for relationships, especially if you can each temper yourselves and steer clear of angry outbursts with one another!  Staying true to yourself boosts your personal chemistry and ultimately strengthens relationships.

On the world scene, diplomacy, cooperation, and peace may temporarily give way to aggressive energies, but in the end, the potential for diplomatic breakthroughs exist as well.  What jumps into my mind as I write this is the ongoing dispute in Russia over the Ukraine and how the United States’ involvement may either positively or negatively effect the process depending upon how the individuals involved use this Venus in Aries energy.  Remember that Mars is the God of War and Venus in his domain can have a distinct tempering effect.  However, during this Venus in Aries transit, Mars which is now retrograde will move forward.  That should make for some interesting activity on the world scene – particularly around mid-May to the end of May.

For us as individuals, enjoy the ride, stay TRUE to You, Live, Laugh and Love and you’ll come out of this transit smelling like a rose 🙂
