Gemini/Gemini Rising* (May 22-June 20): Hello, polliwog. As you make your way to becoming an adult frog, what awareness must you possess of possible hazards. The growth process is an organic one, but there are frenemies all around. A frenemy knows your weaknesses best. Sometimes it is a thin line between a BFF and a frenemy. Youre like a sailor who hasnt crossed the equator for the first time (also known as a polliwog). Its rumored that you must cross-dress as you cross the equator. The evolution? Taking on the garb of the opposite sex can be liberating, no? (I suppose we could ask RuPaul or go to his University on LOGO) Drag queens (or kings) aside, a major part of your psychic evolution as the Twins includes integrating your inner male (if female) or inner female (if male). As you age, dear polliwog, you will soften your strict adherence to the rules of what is appropriate behavior. If only for one night, receptivity in male or assertiveness in female can make your identity complete itself internally. Then as fully grown, you no longer search for your other half, you search for your other whole. Then too, just like those sailors (excuse me, polliwogs) who cross the equator for the first time, you need a ritual initiation to symbolically mark your growth from one mental/feeling state to another, and back again ...
Cancer/Cancer Rising* (June 21-July 21): For the past couple of months there have been a gaggle of planets gathered in Aries, the only initiating fire sign to challenge your initiating water sign. Cant say something nice, then say nothing at all. This may have been the wisdom of our great-great grandmothers, yet, you have had to starve your beast of whats appropriate to get to the root cause of why you are the way you are. Aries insures you, hell, even demands you fight or flight, show us how to please you. Do not automatically think that through withdrawal, we will wonder whats wrong, because there is not enough emotional intelligence in most of us. However, if youre traveling with or to family this weekend, take the new found and hard won confidence with you. Teach them how to treat you. After all, if no one is saying anything nice about you, then what have you done for them lately, um, without expecting something in return? Sometimes you have to convince others to care more.
Leo/Leo Rising* (July 22-Aug 22): Growing up is not the easiest thing to do. First of all, you must learn to not only see, then feel, but live the difference between responsibility and accountability. No, I am not, I repeat, not, suggesting you live from a hackneyed position of original sin. Jesus aint judging (period). (However, we can have long discussions about what his organized followers are judging.) You are just correct (much like forward is to straight for some diligent gays), not right. Being true (or correct) to yourself and acting from integrity and excellence (even when it hurts anothers feelings) makes you responsible. You become accountable when you are off path, playing to other folks expectations and mooching. To mature is to know and appreciate what your support system gives to you from their collective hearts. Verbally expressing gratitude begins the short jaunt from accountability to responsibility. I be guaranteeing it.
Virgo/Virgo Rising* (Aug 22-Sept 22): Afraid of Medusa and any entity that personifies disorder? Chaos and String Theory, Quantum Physics abound. Right now, the will of the planets wander through the area of your sky that requires a re-mixing of sorts, combining your resources in a fresh and unique manner. What you do not know, try to sense. What remains a mystery, try to accept. Then let go of trying, just exist. Medusa was conjured and written by some very frightful men. Men afraid of the power of the feminine, vow to destroy as well as create life, to bleed but not to die. Some men examine their feces as an act of creation (although not a bad idea, if you think you may be getting ill). You are poised to increase your fertility, but you must leave behind the ideas of how your creations are to come into being. Whats that you say, oh the willing suspension of disbelief? It cant be that easy, can it? Realize there other ways to ascertain the truth beyond words, logic and words. Check in with your inner Medusa, that place of welcoming the unnerving or imperfect into your life.
