Gemini/Gemini Rising (May 21-Jun 20): Happy birthday, Prince (June 7) did your musicianship peak with Purple Rain? Probably not. IMHO, your creativity started to wane when you became a Jehovahs Witness (my bad, you dont celebrate your birthday anymore.) Talk about suppressing your innate feminine side (I remember your writing If I Were Your Girlfriend under the pseudonym Camille). You have not been the same, since. I feel sorry for you, my little light skinned brother. Hey, as a complimentary milk chocolate brother of similar height, not girth, I feel for you (oh, you wrote that joint sung by Chaka). So, where do you feel you cant win, Gemini? If male, you want to soften, but youre afraid. And, if female, you are being called the b-word simply because youre assertive. No worries. Help. Comes. Mr. Masculine Mars enters your sign shortly, and not under the guise of premature ejaculation (in either sex, oh, go read something re: human sexuality). In essence, do not shoot your load before youre ready to go on the record where youve been ignored. Whether youre called a jerk or a bee-atch, it is the willingness to take the risk of synthesized self-expression. You sense it. You smell it, and you. Let you know when next week comes
Cancer/Cancer Rising (Jun 21-July 21): Embarking upon a Poseidon adventure. The more you hold onto what your egocentric world demands, the more you will feel as if your world is being turned upside down. Sometimes Earth acts like one long unwanted lesson after another lesson. Demanding that your conditioning has all the answers while you cruise on unstable waters will leave in you in a state of unfulfilled expectations and desires. Any progress has to happen through full integration into your feeling body. Once youve realized your true gifts (no matter how underutilized or forgotten), you can swim under and between the Poseidons obstacles to being the star in your own story. In the original movie circa 1972, your life parallels the Shelley Winters character. Ms. Winters swam underwater to open the way for the remaining survivors. She had swam since high school. Today, we have an overblown crop of current reality stars. Whether they dance, survive or sing, each has to hold their breath to exhale their true stuff. The observers judge them to see if they have pushed beyond their fears to succeed (negative role models are still role models telling cautionary tales). Check out Leos message.
Leo/Leo Rising (July 22-Aug 22): Marriage equality means more than currently second class citizens simply want the option to make the same mistake as their heterosexual counterparts. Rarely does one want to marry in haste, only to regret in leisure ala Las Vegas, no matter whom theyre marrying. Marriage equality is not the same as civil unions. It is the continuing of freedom to live life with more freedom and choice. For this summer, your relationship life ebbs and flows between perceiving who brings you lust versus who promises a love affair. The aforementioned is not mutually exclusive. You can get heated while simultaneously desire a romantic, a so-called light of day connection. Pay rapt attention to your dreams promising surrender to a strong mate who redeems you. Allow a well timed rescue. Yet, being the one who wants control a.k.a. the rescuer, you must allow yourself to choose someone who has something to give willingly. Can you accept without rationalization? Early next week you have your answer. Scorpio has some clues in their message.
Virgo/Virgo Rising (Aug 22-Sept 22): You can believe what you want to see in those closest to you. Only when you have a Martha kind of relationship to these spiritual realities. You may remember that when Jesus visited Mary and Martha (or so the story goes), Mary sat as his feet. Martha kept cleaning or tending to business. Ok, time to attend to the business of having a spiritual connection to your living room or happy hour buddies. Whether you are a tea totter or not, alcohol and politics aside, these are your folk that you let you be you. The point? Apply Marthas attention to physical detail to your spiritual world. Begin to see both worlds as one. One of your ancient rulers, Mercury, has entered your sibling sign of Gemini until June 16. Basically, you will be arguing with yourself regarding your true usefulness at your chosen work (or with a parent) until then. Avoid the mental minefields, go inward could be your final frontier, huh?
Libra/Libra Rising (Sep 23-Oct 22): Chickens coming home to roost a saying that could also mean these fowl are returning to their rooster? The hen who are unable to leave their patriarchal controllers. Will he like when he realizes that I rule the world ala Beyonce? When you make decision based on future possibilities in relationships, you shine. No matter how many people give you mucho flack for being idealistic and charitable, keep on keeping on being that way. The world moves with you, even with we are unaware of doing so. This New Moon Solar Eclipse in Gemini activates your ninth state of higher and abstract thought, having new adventures of expansive living and travel. Old Hens and stuck roosters can learn new tricks. Imagine the strength in the gray areas of your ethical life. Certainly theres very little growth in rigidly adhering to outmoded gender roles based on an outdated source filled with inaccuracies a.k.a. the Bible. What are your processes for making the deeper decisions?
Scorpio/Scorpio Rising (Oct 23-Nov 21): As a fixed water sign, you stop flowing when you reach the bottom of things. In Toronto, a couple sent an email to their social network stating they were going to keep their childs gender a secret. Only the midwives (home water birth), two siblings, and, of course, the parents know. An informal poll on AOL Parent Dish, approximately 75% think that the child will be confused. These 75% need to research the Zuni tribe that does not prescribe gender based on genitalia, but on behaviors. Your sign rules such taboo perspectives, that is, your deep water must get to the root of why? Personally, I think the 75% are confused. What does an infant know about gender roles or if he or she is wearing pink or blue? Look within your own life and closest relationships, how have you regretted taking a resistant (domineering/male) response when an open (receptive/female) one would have done? Or vice versa? Gemini time of year teaches you, if not anyone else, how to be fluid. Does thought have gender? Or our souls? Cmon profound feeling sign, drop the Toronto family into conversation, polite or otherwise, get water moving within folks unexamined issues. Report back. Read Pisces.
Sagittarius/Sagittarius Rising (Nov 22-Dec 19): Love Child by the Supremes plays as background music. A product of a love affair, the parent of a love child now could be referred to as a baby daddy or baby mama. Whatever. Your karma (read: intensity) lies in your ability to live in the moment without thought of the past or future. Sometimes that creates the next generation or, at the very least, breaking of promises of exclusivity. As you lay, realize you have much to offer another. Im not speaking so much about a love the one youre with as I am getting you to analyze your grass is always greener philosophy. This includes both genders. You flit and flirt and philander until the love you want comes back to you. Try initiating more honesty. If you want the love child, but not the parent of said love child, then tell the other before you hook up. Or better yet, sow your wild oats or creamy thighs elsewhere. Take a longer view of your present actions is the bottom line.
Capricorn/Capricorn Rising (Dec 21-Jan 19): May I be brought to the attention of those who value what I do, the specialized and perfected professional role I play in this yet to fully grow up society. That is an affirmation I have for you Caps who live from a place of integrity and excellence. Those of you who use everyone with whom you come in contact, piss off! Your manipulations are not spot on. To be cynical is not to be chic. Itd be infinitely better to be like country or trashy as long as youre bringing it real, than to be above all while lusting after the waitress or car mechanic. Class warfare is your freaking cross to bear (religious pun intended for those of you who worship the dollar). Im talking to #5 on the St. Louis Cardinals, the first baseman, Albert Pujols, a Capricorn Earth Sheep (thats another column re: Chinese Astrology). Not singling him out, just have some St. Louis connections (& I went to a game on May 22). It can be dangerous when you place too much value on the physical world. Use this Neptune spin around today to give without any thought or expectation of return. Watch the knots untie, starting with your neurotic stomach
Aquarius/Aquarius Rising (Jan 20-Feb 19): Polite. Yes. Nice. No. When you search for love, you must begin with yourself. Sex. Easy. Lust. Yep. Connection. Huh? As bright as you are intellectually, you have little to no awareness of what your closest other needs (and if you do, are these needs given by you freely?). You can easily fit the form of what a relationship requires using your immense intuition to anticipate anothers need. But what about your needs? Legitimate needs, not the rationalized, run through the balancing act of expecting to be left. To assess your true passions, you have to be willing to see us as individuals with feeling narratives, not sociological experiments for your own mental exploitation. Gemini New Moons are excellent for fun, play and creative use of your energies, not for dominating others (unless youve agreed upon safe words).
Pisces/Pisces Rising (Feb 18-Mar 20): You are one of the water people. You seek your own level. Know that could mean you are also a bottom feeder too, selling your soul to anyone pays any attention to your story of playing the victim.. Heightened sensitivity to our pain, you desire to be the balm on our souls wounds. This New Moon Partial Solar Eclipse in one of your challenging signs of Gemini will have you questioning your early conditioning. Much like your Sun sign symbol of two fish swimming in opposite directions but connected by an astral cord, you feel the past in direct proportion to wanting to let go of the past. What if you had less gender conditioning (even though you are an uber-feminine/yin sign) in your formative years? How much strength would you assume you have, strength based on your inner reserves, not because big boys dont cry or girls are allowed to? Please read Cancers message too because you know we all reflect each other, right?
Aries/Aries Rising (Mar 21-Apr 19): You sense your perceptions are being broadened. You tend towards third eye visualization and immediate action to stir up our enthusiasms. Be. See. Do. However, with Neptune sitting still in the friendly skies in your 12th house of self-undoing, you could be feeling like youd rather take a power nap than get moving on some pet project. No worries. Your consciousness transforms through opening the possibilities of how to actively search for what (or whom) you want while augmenting your faith. Faith or a trans-rational belief that your highest good (which includes the common good) searches for ways to please you. If you must petulantly emote while in alleged limbo, you get 10 minutes per listener. Limit yourself to 4 sets of ears. Who am I to tell you this? I belong to a group called The Evolutionary Police. Grow in understanding, get more whining time. Paradoxically, more evolution, the less you will need to whine.
Taurus/Taurus Rising (Apr 20-May 21): Jupiter is the largest planet in our solar system. He rules BIG things, like BIG business, BIG beliefs (religion & publishing) and BIG learning (universities & college). Hell be rolling his BIG self into your sign on Saturday, where hell be pouring out, youve guessed it, BIG blessings until June 11, 2012. Watch out for excesses of food, drink, sex, you know, the normal stuff. A kernel of acquisitiveness could easily turn out to be full fledge materialism ala King Midas. Remember that not everyone is a magnetic as you are. Some of us have to scratch, well, for our daily scratch and cook our daily bread. Manage to distribute your goodwill and youll be protected on all fronts. Those excesses, though, can turn a cupcake top into a muffin top, a light beer belly into a kegger belly. Opportunity knocks. Be prepared for doors to be open, if youre ready.
