We find ourselves getting ready for a change of season as our Sun enters adaptable Communicator Gemini. The masculine mutable air energy of Gemini is symbolized by the Twins and guided by the Messenger planet Mercury. These gentle natives enjoy conversation, intelligent ideas, being in the know and people of all kinds. Wherever you find a clever soul wittingly expressing themselves in life, you'll find an adaptable Gemini close by.
With the innate ability to move and think quickly the Gemini is known to be a free spirit, lending at times not being able to make proper commitments in life. They must learn to withstand from being scattered, for when they remain too on the go as they go about the world, lack of inner harmony is easy to set in. A Gemini should always remember they must pay close attention to tendency to be split, which occurs when they are not relaxed. This natural sense of duality can be mastered when they find a healthy cooperation between their opposite directions.
The properties of Gemini rule the 3rd Zodiac House in the natal birth chart. This is the piece of the "pie" that represents the area of life that represents our thinking and mentality, as well as our preferred energies to communicate, a Gemini's favorite thing to do., As one views their natal chart, the natal house Gemini energy falls is the one area of your "Zodiac Pie" where you will see an intelligent and clever force behind all you do. Any planets that may be placed in Gemini in the birth chart also take on their natural expression through the qualities of this quick-witted and talkative sign.
Gemini marks the first mutable communication sign upon the Zodiac Wheel. The air around us as we wind down the spring season is a buzz of energy as we get ready to change to summer. With the Messenger planet Mercury as Gemini's guiding light, we can expect this month to be filled with logical thinking, movement and flourishing ideas.
This Zodiac month marks our second Mercury REtrograde period of 2008. Keeping in mind that Mercury governs over all forms of travel as well as the written and spoken word, thus when in REtrograde- these kinds of things are naturally in flux- granting the perfect opportunity for Reassessment. As Mercury backtracks through Gemini, this will be a time when the stirs of change are more than intense.
Neptune joins the REtrograde activity for it's long term transit until November 2nd. Mystic Neptune stimulates the collective's imagination and sympathetic tendencies- while in reversal period in Aquarius ruling new life and reform- this energy is conducive towards upheavals in both social and political playgrounds, and humanitarian ideals. Be sure to note the Aquarian ruled house (area of life) within your individual birth chart to steer clear of any delusional and perverse reactions.
Pluto dips back into Sagittarius as it continues in REtrograde motion until September 8th. Once back in forward motion, it won't be until November 26th that it reenters Capricorn to carry out the transit until 2024 in this perfectionist sign. The collective can expect the last visit the planet of deep transformation in Sagittarius to finalize all matters pertaining to excess. Solutions to these areas will point to alternatives that bring the necessary responsibility and wisdom required to make sure lessons needing to be learned will not be soon forgotten.
During this adaptable month ahead, may every Star communicate with awareness.
