Sun enters Gemini: 10:15 PM EDT
In the era of fake news, when facts are a matter of opinion as a matter of course, Gemini is a significant player. As the twins, a dual or mutable sign, on one hand it has two sides. Gemini rules hand eye coordination as well as communication. You could say it’s the journalist, the messenger, the town crier. On the other hand you could also see it as the trickster, the guy with the 3 shells and the pea who manipulates information: Like that Gemini and his Gemini sidekick in the white house. These days Gemini might be about the standoff between journalists and governments . Journalists and politicians might be seen as two wings of democracy. We, the people, need to trust them. At the moment it’s a bit of a mess.
As each of us tries, from our own little perch to see things as they are we can’t help but notice that there is too much information and not enough facts to have a truly rational perspective.
Gemini is also the breath. It rules the process of breathing in and breathing out. This might be a clue or thread to help us keep hold of what we call reality. A powerful tool, hiding in plain sight. Focusing on inhaling and exhaling (which is always happening) cuts through the fake stuff and shows us what is. I breath in, I breathe out. Deeply. With commitment and intention. Whenever we remember. Breathing is always happening but rarely do we connect it to our thoughts. It’s a powerful tool for warding off or calming anxiety, when we use it.
Gemini’s biggest adventure this month is the square to Neptune which indicates confusion and deception. But you can always believe in your breath.

It’s not for nothing that the senses are referred to as the doors of perception. Each one a pathway into direct connection to this world. Virtual doesn’t hold a candle to that which we taste, touch, smell, hear or see. For, as the poet said,
Mercury opposite Jupiter
Sun trine Mars
If you’re overwhelmed with feelings, use your common senses to figure things out. If it smells bad don’t eat it. If it feels bad, don’t wear it. If your heart or guts close like a fist, walk away.
Read the world right when you put your thoughts into action. You might support the just cause or simply take a walk. Swing your arms as you go. Balance your brain. It is the seat of the mind.
Jupiter trine Neptune
Mercury trine Pluto
A day of talents such as knowing how we feel and trusting what we feel: Using these talents to build a world that sees life as the primary good rather than business. Think about the good of all before the bottom line.
Venus opposite Saturn
If you want it badly enough it’s probably worth working for. Consider the merits of deferred gratification.
Full Moon: 8 degrees of Sagittarius: 10:19 AM EDT
Mercury enters Gemini
That big, round disc in the sky reminds us to tune into the news that’s fit. It’s not about true and false – that ship has already left the harbor. It’s more about how that Sagittarian arrow flies which depends on where it is directed: Toward love or destruction. We direct the arrow with our thoughts which become our words which fly like arrows and hit their marks.
Mercury trine Mars
Venus trine Jupiter
An awesome day to sing your song, make your point. appreciate the sheer immensity that we call life. We are all the precious, tough and tender children of our mother.
Venus trine Neptune
A day for hugs and art, flowers and fragrance. ‘Be Here Now’ was never meant to be a virtual suggestion. You must be present to win.
Sun conjunct Mercury
Venus opposite Pluto
Today a message. In a world where everyone wants to get their message across there are too many messages. Put your ear to the ground. Listen to the Great Belly of the Earth. Then you might hear something.
Mercury square Neptune
The legions of false news (once known as lies) is staggering. Like a dark, malevolent forest the branches thrash and slap at travelers. The best protection is breathing: Inhaling into the vast expanse within, exhaling out into the vast expanse of the world and beyond. Here we find truth in the endless movement that goes nowhere.
Sun square Neptune
Deceptions, distractions, disruptions. Whether you’re in the thick of it or a bystander, breathing is always a good idea. The greatest ally. Especially when the Sun is in Gemini.
Mercury enters Cancer
Subtle shifts toward a felt sense of groundedness. Touch it but don’t grab at it. Energy is at its best when it moves.
New Moon: 22 degrees of Gemini: 3:43 PM EDT
Mercury sextile Uranus
Venus enters Leo
Choose your words with care. We are responsible for the energy we let lose in this world. But don’t be ominous about it. Unexpected expression could lead somewhere good, somewhere you hadn’t considered. Ideas, like gems scattered wantonly on the ground. It’s not for lack of intelligence or interest that this world is so crazy.
Venus square Uranus
If a revelation stops you in your tracks, be impressed. Pay attention. But don’t think just because you’re gob smacked you have to do what it seems to be saying. Remember the old, trite but true wisdom of the grannies: ‘Marry in haste, repent at leisure.”
Mercury opposite Saturn
Tackle the problem at hand. Saturn likes that. Take the step that’s in front of you. Sometimes its that simple. And if you think it isn’t, think about the fact that there really is nothing else you can do. Right here, right now.
Neptune stationery retrograde
They say that we function in idea pods, searching out what we already believe or think we know: Looking for validation not information: Preaching to the converted. That’s why the ads distract us and why we are so convinced that we know what’s going on. It’s human. Makes sense in a way for most of us. The only cure is to watch the clouds, listen to the birds, celebrate the pollinators. Nature’s language is not biased, not even in fire and flood. Neither on a quiet morning in the late spring when the air is soft and the world is busy living.
June 19 & 20
Mercury trines both Jupiter and Neptune
The rising and setting of the sun is not always a glorious light show, dazzling and awakening us. Sometimes the sky is dull, the clouds are dark and glory is shrouded. The real miracle is that it happens anyway. Every day. And has since before we began. And will continue after we’re gone.
