We are on the last leg of this very intense worm hole that we’ve been in since the middle of May. There is a New Moon in Gemini on June 19th, marking the completion of a shift in consciousness that this entire year is about. While things are not likely to calm down much in the months ahead, this particular chapter has been one where we have had a tremendous ability to guide the transformation we are going through with conscious intention. We have one more big shot at this; use it wisely.
If you have been reading these posts, then you know that the big news in the sky centers around the archetype of Gemini. In fact, a worm hole itself is defined by three lunar events occurring in a row in the same sign. This puts a tremendous amount of energetic focus in a single area. The twins of Gemini govern the realm of the human experience that gave rise to separation and duality with each twin taking an opposite side to every consideration. This is the moment in our evolution where these two opposing energies are finally coming together in integration.
This coming together does not mean homogenization by any means. It simply indicates that we have stepped into a place where differences can be tolerated without fear, both in our inner landscapes as well as in the outer world. This has never been more important for the survival of our planet than it is now, for the path to world peace begins with the path to inner peace inside each of us as individuals.
The recent Solar, Lunar and Venusian eclipses have all taken place in Gemini. If that weren’t enough, Jupiter moved into Gemini just this past Tuesday. Jupiter travels in a year-long cycle and his presence represents a very big, very benevolent force. Where Jupiter is, expansion and good fortune follow.
There is a powerful irony built into all of this: Through the recent eclipses, the conscious mind (Sun) and the unconscious mind (Moon) industriously operated in tandem to shift how they work with each other. This is allowing us to be more conscious of that which we used to be unconscious of. To increase the stakes, the heart center (Venus) decided it was time for her to get involved and had a mighty meeting with the conscious mind (Sun) where they agreed to meld together more intimately for the betterment of us all.
And with the doorway of this monumental shift still wide open, the frequency of expansion and benevolence (Jupiter) stepped into this very territory as if to say, “Now that you have opened your hearts even more, I will bring to this very place the big yummy stuff that it is in my power to bring.” Whatever movement you have created for yourself during these past weeks can ride on Jupiter’s coat tails for the next 12 months, ensuring that the growth continues with great abandon.
For some people, one of the things occurring here is a redefinition of expansion. This does not necessarily mean cash and prizes. Healing can be painful, but the benefit of a more open heart is more love, and more love is the best prize of all. Venus is still retrograde and will be in Gemini for roughly another two months. This means that the healing part of this journey is far from over. If the heart opening that you have been experiencing feels as if it is being done with a crow-bar and some Vaseline, hang tight. The far reaching benefits of this time will be beyond your current ability to imagine.
The presence of Jupiter in Gemini brings a year-long sense of increase and abundance to whatever you are up to creating. The communication element of Gemini may place emphasis on things in your life that demand the Mind to be engaged in a significant way. This is the year to write that book, study that new discipline, to speak what is on your mind and in your heart in a powerful way. It is time walk your talk at any cost.
New Moons are seed planting moments and the past few weeks has brought us so much clarity about what our lives are truly calling us toward. That should make what you focus on this coming week much more precise and aligned with your highest good than ever before.
The exact moment of the New Moon is Tuesday morning at 8:02am PDT. The “Dark of the Moon” is the most vital time of the New Moon experience; it begins when the Moon enters the sign of the lunation (which it does at 10:25pm PDT on Saturday evening the 16th) up until it is exact (in this case, Tuesday morning). This is when the receptivity for seed planting is at its most potent; our ancestors literally chose the energy of this time to plant crops. Since this New Moon is late in Gemini (the 29th degree) this particular dark of the Moon is quite long. That makes Sunday and Monday very potent days for considering what it is you wish to generate next in your experience.
Once again, it is time to connect to your desires and here’s the assignment for this lunation. Rather than write the list of what you are creating for yourself, it is time to be clear enough about what you are up to, to use your voice. This is the true essence of the Gemini influence, for the twins invented speech. Some time on Sunday, Monday or early Tuesday morning, take a moment to get quiet and speak your intentions out loud. This kind of prayer is more powerful than you can possibly imagine.
This may seem a little untethered for those of you who are not accustomed to such a process, but graduating from writing a list to using your voice is a profound moment in the evolution of your spiritual practice. It may be helpful to direct your words toward something specific. If this is already within your sensibility, do what works for you. If not (or if you are curious about a new way to approach such intention-setting prayers) try having a conversation with your future self. Picture yourself in your mind’s eye having the life of your wildest dreams and talk to yourself about bringing who you are today into alignment with the frame of mind of who you intend to be. The thinning veil between thought and form combined with the open heart of the current landscape can truly catapult you into the magnificent life you have always longed for. The time is now and the person you have been waiting for is you.
The special rate of $53 for sessions comes to a close at the end of the day on Tuesday June 19th. Any emails I get about setting up appointments through that day will be honored for this special rate. Many people have been asking if they can purchase multiple sessions now and use them later in the year or as gifts. I am indeed taking payment now for sessions later, so if this interests you, drop me a line about how many you’d like to purchase and I will send you an invoice and place you on my list of pre-paid clients.
