Gemini New Moon June 19 Close to the Summer Solstice June 20, 2012
Today you will find me rumbling my way through lots of different ideas and subjects in alignment with the Gemini spirit.
With the longest day of the year and the shortest night in the Northern hemisphere mid summer is upon us once again marked by the summer solstice.
Dancing around bonfires, celebrations of the communion between heaven and earth have been honored by many cultures especially by the pagan, Celtic or druid traditions. Even nowadays it is a special day to celebrate and many people are coming together at sacred spots around the world like Stonehenge and Avebury. Midsummer is thought of as a time of magic when the forces of the light are at their strongest.
I am also back from my travels and available for readings again. The month of June offers possibilities for deep insights and mental expansion beyond previous limitations. This is a splendid time for an astrological reading.
I am offering a special for $ 150 for a natal chart reading, a two hour session which will be recorded for you. If you know your chart pretty well and just want to have a forecast session with looking into the present time with transits and progressions I charge $ 75 per hour. I like to look into the time frame of a year which helps you to prepare yourself better to be in the flow with the cosmic energies. It will help you to make better adjustments with life and give you better and conscious choices.
I believe consciousness is the key to a happy and successful life!
As you can tell there is a lot going on in the heavens and accordingly in your life. There are always special times in your life when you reach a threshold of consciousness and things just don’t work the old way any more. You have to decide if you want to move forward into a new direction or sit down on your path and try to avoid life which never works very well. The only thing we know for sure is that life is impermanent and in constant flux and motion. If we stop growing we start dying, it is as simple as that. With astrology we can see those special times coming and act according to the flow of life.
One of those special times of new Beginnings are the Solar and Lunar Eclipses and of course the turning points of the seasons, the solstices and equinoxes.
This month we are asked to integrate seemingly opposite ways of looking at the world. We are invited to learn how opposites not only attract each other but also enrich and complement our perspective. As a result, we can learn something totally new and grow in our perception and interpretation of the surrounding world.
You might be aware of how subjective your personal views and interpretations are of people and outside events. Your belief systems and past experiences have shaped your lenses and determine what you allow yourself to perceive. Therefore each one of us lives in a very individual world which is truly unique. In the application of this wisdom lives the power of individual change and inner growth.
And it is the underlying reason why any kind of counseling or therapy might be helpful; as long as it manages to change the interpretation and meaning that a painful situation holds for you. With the Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius and another New Moon in Gemini (last month we had the New Moon at the very beginning of Gemini) there is a chance for a deep integration between the inner world of your emotions, through the application of analysis of what is, with the possibility of understanding the bigger picture as a result.
Full Moon/ Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius
You might just feel really itchy and in need of some adventure and change of routine around this Full Moon. It is a good time for you to travel, camp in the crater or at least take the long road to Hana. Under the itch is the need to feel you are growing and expanding your vision of the world. You could also sign up for a seminar to grow your wisdom perspective or get some astrological counseling. I believe that your soul needs food in the same way your body does. And it is a time to become super sensitive to what you put into your mind and develop a new attunement to that.
Make sure it is something inspiring and uplifting and not just the usual low IQ television entertainment. You might want to take a challenge and stay off your usual mental diet of TV, books and newspapers for 3 days and see what will happen to your consciousness.
New Moon in Gemini
Gathering facts and ideas is the job description of Geminis. They are usually very good at that. Gemini is the natural communicator, story teller, student and teacher of the zodiac. Besides Sun and Moon, we also have Ascendant, Venus, Jupiter and the South Node of the Moon in Gemini.
In a nutshell that means you can feel empowered to find your own voice and stand up for your own vision. With Jupiter bringing opportunities and fortunate coincidences, you can start developing your dreams by taking first steps to manifestation. Jupiter helps you to tap into the magic of your thoughts, creating the outer world in accordance to your inner world. Depending on your understanding and state of consciousness, you can utilize the cosmic energies described by the planets and truly wield magic.
Interaction and polishing your communication skills with other people should be interesting and entertaining.
The cosmic goal with the North Node of the Moon in Sagittarius is the meaningful integration of mind activity into the service of a higher perspective and philosophy of who you are as an individual. You will be able to feel happier and more content.
