MOON in Gemini, square Mercury Rx in Virgo, and Neptune in Pisces. Mercury opposite Neptune.

With Moon in Gemini aspect Mercury take the time out to go over your choices, decision you have made or go over what is happening now. Have a new look, slow down to review. That is the Mercury Rx, time to reflect, review. Mercury in Virgo, be discerning, look at the details, be realistic in your approach.

Neptune does make this all a little difficult as it’s a blur, unfocused element. There may be a touch of confusion on how you got here, you have no control, it was out of your grasp, but you thought you had it. Neptune shows you, where you are not seeing clearly, the illusion. Neptune in Pisces, is a bigger picture, you may net see it yet.

Neptune can help for a quiet time to reflect and meditate on all that is happening.

Mercury and many planets are Rx at the moment, so not a lot of really going forward, well, you might feel like you are not moving forward, now with Mercury Rx you may find that it all slows down, and so should you. Get a grip, find the pace that keeps you in the present moment, don’t get too far ahead of yourself.

If you do need to make any decision, take a good look at it, be sure of what you are doing.

Venus enters Gemini, 2017!

VENUS enters GEMINI!
This will lift you up a little, a lighter side to play, have fun. It may also lift the heaviness from Venus themed issues, like LoVe, money, relationships and even business. Take the time out to be curious, light hearted, have dates with your mates, get chatty, talk about what you like and don’t like, very Venus.
 
Attract what you would like in a partner, be chatting, be clear, communicate well, and also remember to flirt, very Gemini.
In love, read, listen, write a love note, be super sexy with your dialogue.
 
Talk it out, listen, keep your options open, more then one choice you may have, you may get busier in your day.
This is more of a breezy, easy, time. Keep in mind things may change as it’s air energy, so on the odd occasion, it might get flighty.

Mercury cuincunx Pluto, 16 June, 2017!

MERCURY quincunx PLUTO, 16th, @3:36:47 pm(aest) exact.
A quincunx is friction, no understanding between two planets involved. I just don’t know or understand how that is going to work. But they are still connecting and they have to work it out, they need to make some adjustments.
Mercury in Gemini (mind, thoughts, perception), is going to have to be flexible here as Pluto in Capricorn more than likely won’t be, that’s the power and authority part. Mercury may have to choose what to do. You may have to use your head to get you out of it, come up with an idea.
You may find an obstacle or roadblock in your path, it may be uncomfortable and not easy. This may be something you just don’t get, and you may have to dig deep in your thoughts, an it be emotional, to find a solution.
A few twist and turn, and Adjustments and you are good to go.

New Moon in Gemini, May 2017!!!

Generally a new moon in Gemini is flighty, easy, airy, flirting and fun. However this one may have you in a knot or two. No aspects are hitting this new moon, but what is going on with other planets is what is going to impact you the most. Some are easy and well some are just not. So the mix in the air is tense, a struggle a dilemma or two.

Either way whatever is happening in your world, take a moment to look at it and delve a little deeper into it, make this moon more of an inner journey, as you may need to make a few changes that have been floating up from the subconscious and that’s Pluto territory, shaking you up, and you all know what Pluto is about, removing whatever does not or is not working for you. Venus is connecting, love, relationship, partnership, money, values and self-worth, may be some of the issues that you are dealing with. Mercury ruler of Gemini, is in Taurus, Venus rules Taurus, value and worth.

Out with the old and in with the new, Gemini is a new thought, new idea, changing your mind, new plan, breezy, let the cobwebs of old be blown away. If you are feeling old, worn out, got that stale, stagnation around you, (that is a good place to start, look there) this new moon is saying really listen and observe, either with others or with your own internal dialogue, what emotions come up for you, the really important, strong, reactive ones usually are the best guide, however not the easiest to work with, but they do show you, tell you something you need to know, observe what and who is in front of you to get information in regards to what you need to do next or now.

The sky is a buzz, the planets are talking to each other, and most of them are in the mix, it has not been an easy time of it, frantic, irritable, annoying, no sleep, is driving us slightly mad. Take a breather here, and listen to yourself, as you know what you want, and the new moon can help you to start taking some step to get you there.

The times are shaking it all up, decision and choices, what to do next and what do you want (this is more about you being able to really be you, not letting your past decision or commitments keep you tapped) you may be thinking that somethings gotta change, the last couple of weeks have been pointing you in the direction for this to happen.

Mercury in Taurus, stand still, stay grounded, do not react or be reactive, get the information about all, observe and be sure, this is still the decision-making time, hold off untill you are really sure before taking action. Mars and Saturn are working in the back ground, Saturn holds back. 

North Node in Leo, follow your passion, heart. Good to keep in mind as a guide post.

April, 2017….just keeps going on and on!

0a0ddd85b8a1e713ac3d94a90fcc3ce7
SUN enters TAURUS, MARS enters GEMINI, Mercury meets up with the Sun. April just keeps rolling on with intensity, keeping you on your toes and making you know you are alive.
Sun in Taurus, ground down and ground yourself into the earthy realms of Taurus, keep it simple, logical and practical, try and manifest what you where thinking about when Sun was in Aries, let the new come through with Taurus.
Taurus, self-sufficiency, resources, growth, values, what you own, and can you survive, through it all with what you got. Have you got the stuff inside of you or is it all about your things?
But it’s also about manifesting something that is worth while and you can grow from and with.
Keep it all as real as you can.
Mars the warrior moves into Gemini, fire and air, you are fired up, you can multi task, may even juggle! Choices and information, communication is fired up to go. Your mind and you may move somewhat faster, so work with the Sun in Taurus energy to ground you, so you don’t burn out. Watch your words as you may find that they just come out with passion or force with Mars working through Gemini.
Situations, come and go quickly, Air it’s always moving.
Stay open and flexible for the new info coming your way.

In tune with the Moon! 25-31 July.

New moon in Gemini!

 

mask

New moon in Gemini.

You feel the pressure to make the changes, working out what’s real, what’s false? This is the inner struggle, to step out from behind the mask you wear, are you going to be true? Or are you going to fade back into the shadow.  You’re at the crossroads for change. You might make it or are you still faking it.

This new moon is happening with a mutable grand cross, a stable grand trine, Venus is conjunct the Moon and Sun all in Gemini.

I see Sun/Moon/Venus looking out to the cross and trine, your soul expression, feelings, values.

Venus has come along and asked you “what do you want.” You have to know before you can get. Know this now before Mars turns Direct.

They see Saturn in Sag opposite, are you being real about your future or future plans, and about yourself. Or have you been kidding yourself all along but now it’s serious, life is asking you to step up and own it, whatever it is that you have been playing at. Walk your talk!

Jupiter/North node in Virgo, do the work clear the past away, perfect it, clean it all up, be vigilant. Future has to be different from the past, work on ways to make it so.

Neptune/South node in Pisces, open up to new possibilities, believe in your big dream, step into the unknown, have faith, surrender over. Give it to a higher power. Here you may find you stay stuck in an illusion, delusion, fantasy, lala land. 

The trine is a supportive energy, Mercury, Jupiter, NN, Pluto, all in earth signs, to help you to truly manifest your goals and dreams, for transformation, expansion, fate and future. As this is stable it may keep you stuck or stagnant, so check in on this. If you do feel stuck or stagnant what change can you make, in realistic ways to open you up more, no matter how big or small.

Mars in Scorpio connects with Mercury in Taurus, dig deep to get your answers, don’t mess around here, face what’s going on inside, use your mind and emotions to sort out the stuff that comes up.

This moon in Gemini, take the time to think things through, this is change your thoughts change your life. Gemini is air changeable, not stable, things do not stay the same. This is the winds of change coming. Be open, do not fixate on a certain way or outcome, as it may not be or turn out that way.

Could be tricky with Gemini moon, known also as the trickster. Planting these seeds of your new intentions may be difficult to get them to stick, so with this one, plant them anyways, use your intention, and watch them flap around in the breeze, not really knowing where they will land and in some cases if they even will.

The masks come off,  the walls come down. There is no holding back now, you have come to far.
