Happy Birthday Moon Children, 6/20/16

astrology_chartwheel 2The Sun takes our flip flops, lemonade and cones into Cancer, the Moon ruled 4th sign of the Zodiac, on Monday June 20, 2016. Along with the Cancer Sun, comes the Summer Solstice (in the Northern Hemisphere) – our longest day of the year. This sensitive Water sign may evoke moodiness, but regardless, friends and family (real or created), will always be an important focus. Your own personal Zodiac sign might be different, but, you can still take advantage of some of Cancer’s influences.

Don’t let your antennae wilt in the summer heat. Heightened awareness can provide useful information about people, places, things. Feel what you feel, pay attention to your instincts and if feeling a little blue, don’t over overindulge hoping that extra scoop of hot fudge will make things better. Change the scenery and the mood will probably change too eventually. Know what is best for you – with both food and people. As Cancer’s protective and sympathetic “homey” energy reigns, use it – enjoy the love along with the ice cream.

Communication planet Mercury transits Cancer from 6/30 until 7/14/16 – don’t be surprised if interactions are more emotionally revealing than usual. That can show up in what you write or speak, especially with family & friends.

Happy Birthday Gemini!

astrology_chartwheel 2On Friday May 20, 2016, the Sun skipped into Gemini – the fun, flirty, flexible, flighty 3rd sign of the Zodiac and remains until June 20th (the 1st day of Summer). The natural versatility of this Air sign, with its willingness to change and adapt, keeps the wrinkles, both mental and physical, at bay. While under its influence, we will feel encouraged, regardless of birth sign, to teach, learn, meet and greet, read and write, chat too much / gossip too much. Do pay attention to personal interactions. Deepak Chopra said: “Language creates reality. Words are magical power. Speak always to create joy”. Perfect for a Gemini Sun Transit.

Planet ruler Mercury, communications, education, transportation, short journeys, is Retrograde until 5/23/16.  It will take a few days before it gains direct motion speed but once back to its usual quicksilver pace, we will notice that ideas, speech, pick up speed also. Projects are no longer bogged down, especially in financial areas, but continue to focus on details just in case.

This can be such a good time, but also exhausting. Rather than rush around feeling overwhelmed or scattered, hit the pause button occasionally, re focus, complete tasks that need to be finished, then go on to the next. Half done is half accomplished.

*Gemini Sun:  May 20, 2016 – 10:37 AM EDT / 7:37 AM PDT

*Gemstone: Pearl or Agate * Power Color: Yellow * Body Part: Hands

 

 

New Moon Rising in Gemini, 6/4/16 – Chat On!

Astro New Moon CrescentAt last, Gemini planet ruler Mercury is no longer Retrograde. The communication planet is gaining forward speed and we are able to get traction on tech, transportation, information plans, etc. A perfect time to implement ideas that have been percolating or launch projects that have been stuck for awhile. There will be a New Moon in this talkative, flexible, versatile 3rd Zodiac sign on June 4, 2016.

The Moon is considered “New” when the Sun and Moon are in the same Astrology sign. The universe encourages us to begin, initiate and create. When the Lunar orb is in clever, intellectual Gemini, we will want to teach, learn, share thoughts, tell stories at length regardless of who wants to listen. So get your facts straight. (Short and sweet works best sometimes. And remember, silence is a form of communication too  😎  )
