Gemini time is the approach of the 6-month mark of the year and Summer Solstice, just as its polar opposite, Sagittarius, is the approach of the culmination of the year at Winter Solstice. At this stage, we are still gathering information that will (hopefully) translate into Sag’s wisdom come the completion of this annual cycle. Every year around Gemini time, several planets retrograde (appear to pull back, slow down or reverse altogether) indicating it is time to ‘gather information’ to make better decisions upon forward movement later in the year. At this time, multiple aspects of our individual and collective lives require that we ‘check-in’ and ‘assess’ where we are, how far we’ve come and just how much further we have to go. Review the last 6 months so you can make any necessary adjustments for the upcoming 6-months, in the hopes of getting something worthwhile accomplished by year’s end.
This month you will have to take many deep breaths to maintain your equilibrium. The pressure is intense and the speed of which information is coming at you, is continuing to increase. Always keep in the back of your mind, if you cannot control it, release it to the Universe … and if you CAN control it, then this (whatever is activating your “control” or “survival” buttons) is just a reminder to inhale back your own authority and your personal power to choose … your power to change your mind and thus, your circumstances. In the instant you commit to your choice, change can occur.
Taurus/Scorpio energy brings awareness of your deepest values, renewal of your priorities and access to the power to co-create your world. Taurus time (April/May) is an annual opportunity to seed the *Garden* of your life … while Scorpio time (Oct/Nov) brings the annual gifts of power, magic and purification. Working consciously with these energies gives you a chance to truly ground your Highest intentions and bring them into ‘form’ to serve the greater good, which will attract blessings beyond your wildest imagination … *IF* you maintain integrity and do the work! Earth energy requires getting real ~ getting serious ~ and often, getting dirty! It is a chance to co-create, contribute and allow Great Spirit to breathe life into the seeds you plant at this time.
The Value of Venus Retrograde:
The whole point of any planet going Retrograde is to bring up the issues of its domain, and in Venus’ case, the primary issues are: values, priorities, beauty, love, relationships and resources. It brings these aspects of life up to the surface for everyone. Essentially, this is getting your attention in a way that prompts you to want to explore more deeply and look at things from a variety of other or new perspectives. Before charting the course of future choices & forward movement, there is a personal review & an individual clearing that must happen for you to acquire more clarity & sure-footedness.

As we enter the current Pisces energy, many people will be feeling more sensitive than usual, picking up all kinds of information via all six senses. Over-sensitivity that disrupts your flow and takes you away from your center is one thing, but a better way to think of this energy is to ponder the concept of how sound penetrates when you put your head under water. It is likely the same sensation as when you were in the womb of your mother’s belly. You actually “feel” the sounds more than you “hear” them, you “sense” all the activity around you. That is the essence of NOW.
Jupiter is shifting from expansive Sagittarius to the consolidation of Capricorn. The last time we experienced this energy was 2007 (Sag) and 2008 (Capricorn). We’ve learned that what we believe to be true or possible for ourselves & the world is usually what we act upon and now we are about to learn that whatever we focus on grows & expands. So, in Capricorn, what are you responsible for? How do your beliefs now have to serve a purpose in some way? Sovereignty & Inner Authority are going to be a focus for learning over the next year.
Scorpio brought some very real, very heavy duty stuff to the surface for most people. That kind of deep, energetic shift is the catalyst for the *Spiritual Quest* energy of Sag. Sagittarius is the Adventurer and Researcher of the zodiac, curious about the deeper meaning of all things and in cultivating Truth.
Scorpio is the energy of power, conception, creation & karma; Pluto is the energy of death, rebirth and transformation; and the 8th House is the energy of past life relationships, Ancestors and personal renewal. This is the most powerful time of the year for planting the seeds of what you want to manifest in your life, as well as what you want to release (permanently) from your life. I highly recommend that you take some serious quiet time, meditate for a while and then write them, sing them – dedicate in some way.
