Gemini… Shifting Directions

Sometimes life needs a break… Or is it that we need a break from life?

A job change can create a pause to reflect upon a shift in direction.  A new relationship can bring a desire to spend a year hiking or perhaps a friend ready to make a transition into the non-physical can open the space to be present for that precious process.  For whatever reason, sometimes it’s just time to change direction and do something totally different.

I decided to write a blog on astrology in 2011 and enjoyed ever minute of it.  As my journey  proceeded that year, I found elders around me that needed assistance.  And I, as the little Libra Moon that I am, found myself responding to the needs of “the other” or “the others”, as in this case.  I took this role on with great joy and integrity.  I even let go of my new blog to give full attention to the task at hand.

So, life moves on, my friend now joyfully speaks to me from the other side.  My other elders are also in better situations, so my own journey now comes back to me.  Perhaps this is my version of “empty-nest” syndrome.  I now have the freedom to express myself in this world.  But what to do?  Lost for months, taking classes to inspire my creativity, I really didn’t know what to do with this new freedom.  So, enters the Gemini Full Moon Lunar Eclipse.

Perhaps this writing is toward the person who knows a little more than Sun sign astrology.  This fantastic Eclipse landed just below my Ascendant in the 1st house.  Wow!!! What a hit to move myself back out into the world, expressing my truth through astrology, through writing, through the published word, and in the exposure of the 1st house.  Gemini being about writing and Sag, as the publisher.  I’m glad to be back and generally I suggest that people begin fresh starts at New Moons, but let say that this blog was really already started… I just came back with an explosion.  I always think it’s best to go with the gut, follow our feelings.  As Abraham-Hicks says our Emotional Guidance System is never wrong!

So, Where did this last Eclipse land in your chart?  Where is it that your truth needs to be expressed?  What 19 year cycle just ended, and what 19 year cycle are you beginning?  You can contact me at catherineblogin@yahoo.com for an astrological consultation.

Gemini Full Moon Lunar Eclipse

Well, in the 48 hours prior to this Eclipse I learned of 2 people in my life that transitioned into the non-physical. One of them actually transitioned 2 months ago. How interesting that the information (Gemini) did not arrive to me until just before the  Eclipse. This Eclipse shows us the energy between Sagittarius and Gemini.
Sag in its highest form is the gypsy. It’s the freedom we have when we recognize boredom and choose otherwise. Listening to the beat of our own drummer and following that music no matter how crazy it might seem. People with strong Sagittarius in their charts carry the imprint of what may look like a life of instability as they move around from relationship to relationship, job to job or home to home. However for this wandering muse life is truly pleasurable. Status quo is not their language, and how will the laughter and joy be found if the road is not well-traveled.
As for Gemini, communication and teacher are 2 great key words for this sign. Gemini laps up information and generally wants a fair shake at sending the information back into the world. My father, who carries a strong Gemini signature on the nadir of his chart and his Gemini partner love to talk. In fact, there is never boredom in their home when it comes to conversation. There are times when they both talk to me at the same time with neither taking a break for air for several minutes. I never know who to look at, so I give them both equal face time while turning my head back and forth.
Full Moons allow us to see and feel the full essence of our motherly moon. Her energy is felt so strongly on our planet, that we see the tides, and in fact all waters effected by her pull. Some Full Moons pull out the crazy in people, and some just keep us awake at night.
When the Moon is Eclipsed, the Earth briefly blocks the light of the Sun from the face of the Moon, creating from the Earth’s view, a shadow on the surface of the Moon. It is written that the Eclipses are powerful surges of energy that create doorways. Leaving the old, and moving into a new expression of the energy which the Sun and Moon are holding for that particular Eclipse.
As we look at our Sagittarius Sun and our Gemini Moon we see opportunities to empower ourselves with truthful communication. Sag represents what is real and freeing to ourselves, and the desire to express it with no holding back. On the opposite side of the zodiac, Gemini transfers information with no attachment to the information. A clear news reporter or lawyer is a prime example of “Just the facts Jack” as Jon Lovitz would say. Gemini and Sag are usually not concerned with hurting feelings, and the good thing about this, is that truth can come out of the closet.
So don’t hold back, reach for the freedom that your gypsy needs to live life to its fullest. Express your truth, live in the fun, and watch the opportunities multiply in front of you.

Sagittarius New Moon Solar Eclipse

How lucky we are to have these New Moon portholes of time which usher in new life experiences.  One thing is fore sure, and that is change.  Life just doesn’t remain the same.  New Moons are portholes of time which introduce us to the new, under the guise of the theme in which each Moon represents.  Add a solar eclipse, with the moon blocking the light of the sun, just for a moment and we see one door close as a new life begins.  Conscientiousness is key in opening to the changes.

At 11:09am MST on 11-23-2011, we transition under the darkness of a new moon, fresh in the sign of Sagittarius.  The sign of the archer aims for truth and for new opportunities.  Sagittarius can only prosper if this fiery sign can express itself with no inhibition, no limits, and no one else telling what to do.  This is a time of the year that parties, friends, food and family are high on the priority list.  Sagittarians are likable, and it’s easy to want to place one in your back pocket, but one may find that tomorrow morning they are no where to be found; as they are off to the next adventure.  This time of year the Sag in everyone’s chart is lit up.  This time is for play and to open to all of the joyful experiences of life.  More than ever, it’s alright to be exactly who we would like ourselves to be.  We prosper, and the world prospers.  So pull your foot out of any door that is trying to close, and trust that with laughter and a heart-felt aim, we can have exactly what we love in this life.

New Moon Solar Eclipse

As the energy builds to the end of this weeks New Moon Solar Eclipse, thoughtfulness of the life we want to live is where we want to hold our attention.  This is a powerful time.  Much more is happening in the sky with this New Moon Eclipse sharing a position within a cardinal grand cross.  Pluto, the planet of power, Saturn, the foundation builder, and Uranus, the individual expressionist are all tagging in tightly to the energy of this next Moon cycle.  Pluto, Saturn, and Uranus do not move very fast.  They have been creating much tension and push us to look at our deepest fears, our most important responsibilities, and life fulfillment by expression of our unique self.  The recipe of these three planets in tension with each other and with this New Moon Eclipse require that we are awake and making changes with our environment that serve us.  It’s an empowering time.  It’s ok to let go of what doesn’t work.  No attention to that, will allow it to let go on its own.  Full focus on what you desire, brings it to reality.
