Sun enters Gemini- May 20- 10.36 am EDT to June 20- 6.34 pm EDT- In the Northern Hemisphere we now enter The Flowering Time. It is the blossoming of the seeds we planted at Spring Equinox. Our Animal Totem guide is Deer, gentleness, love, and new adventures opening up. In the Southern Hemisphere this is your Long Nights Time with Snake, shedding the old and experiencing transformation, as your guide.
For all of us the traditional planetary ruler for the Sun’s journey through Gemini is Mercury and he is still retrograde in Taurus until Sunday May 22 and will be in his retrograde shadow until June 07. While the Sun visited Taurus (Apr 19 to May 20) we have been focusing on what is of true value and importance in our lives. Mercury Rx has been helping us do that on the physical/emotional plane. Now that we are under the influence of Gemini the focus shifts to our thoughts and perceptions about our reality. But Mercury Rx is asking us to pay attention to “thought forms” that keep us stuck in past painful patterns. It is like the old 78 vinyl records, when scratched the needle would be stuck at that spot, repeating the refrain over and over again. Mercury retrograde is saying “change your thoughts, change your life”. (Wayne Dyer). A book I have been recommending to support that process is “Heart of the Mind” by Connirae and Steve Andreas. The subtitle is “Engaging Your Inner Power to Change with Neuro-Linguistic Programming”. Gemini is a symbol for rational and logical thinking but it is our subconscious that keeps us stuck in old programming until we bring the issues into the light and heal them. That requires learning to listen to our inner knowing and guidance from our Soul’s Wisdom.
The Soul Centered ruler for Gemini is Venus, currently also in Taurus. She supports us to focus on what is of true value and what we really love. That has been the theme of this Taurus Moon cycle (May 06) that takes us to June 04. Venus will enter Gemini on May 24 at 5.35 am EDT and will be visiting the sign of The Twins until June 17. It is time to write a new story.
Our Clan Mother guide for Gemini is Storyteller, the guardian of speaking the truth from the heart. She teaches us the art of listening so we can hear another’s truth and have empathy. She is the keeper of curiosity, innocence, and the magical child. She teaches us to discover that child and live with joy. She teaches us to honour our story but to also create a new story when the time is right. You can find more of her teachings in the 13 Original Clan Mothers and Earth Medicine both by Jamie Sams. You can also discover more about Deer and Snake Medicine in her oracle Medicine Cards co-authored by David Carson. As we mentioned Deer is our Totem guide for the Flowering Time and Snake for the Long Nights Time.
There is a lot of planetary shifting May 21 to 24 including the Full Moon on May 21/22. We will write more about that in the next day or two. In the meantime remember when you change your thoughts you change your life.
