Wrapping up the month of May, 2013
The month of May should have brought you several different surprises — and not bad ones — after the first half of the month. Things should have been fairly easy to deal with at the beginning of the month and less so after that. You would have spent time planning your next move and being very thoughtful about it. Last half of the month you would have been putting things into action and moving things forward whether you were ready or not. The sun moved into your sign after May 20th and hopefully things worked to your advantage though it looks like you had to put effort into this. This may have tired you out and perhaps you felt the need to slow down. Though there are times that we need to get things done — and that seems to have been the case for you — we know that we need to listen to our bodies and allow the body and mind to heal. If you didn’t feel well or at your usual level of energy it was likely due to the April 25th eclipse. You may have needed a few tests or procedures and again we know that when it’s time to take care of ourselves we should not postpone these things. I hope you are feeling healthy and are in good health now. With Gemini hosting lucky Jupiter you should have found answers to your health questions or at least ways of managing chronic conditions. I certainly hope so, Gemini. Some situations you’ve had to deal with were exhausting you especially in work related situations. This eclipse of April 25th last month had a lasting effect or at least it felt that way. We know that work related stress can really put stress on health. (more…)

Not all days are easy, Gemini, and today may be one of those days you may have wished to stay in bed. Why would you waste your day buried under your comforter? I don’t think there’s anything that should make you feel that way, ever. But sometimes the things that other people say bother us more than usual and today may include someone’s comment or opinion that strikes you as hurtful. Anyone that has insensitive words isn’t being the most supportive and they could very well be words from someone who’s trying to hurt you. I don’t like to admit that there are people in the world who truly enjoy hurting our feelings but there’s always one rotten apple at the bottom of the fruit basket. (more…)
For the week of Monday, March 12, 2012
I recently wrote about the bible story of Doubting Thomas. Are you a doubting Thomas right now, Gemini? It seems you are. Right now you feel a little deflated and perhaps a little weary but this is not the time to give up, precious, this is not the time to lay down your arms. You are doing all you can and you have been, perhaps you’ve missed your mark here and there, but the war is won by winning a series of battles and though your life doesn’t have to seem a battle at all, that’s how you feel. What you need to remember is that every day you make progress in some way, it’s one more step toward that thing you wish to accomplish. Finances are on your mind and you feel pressured and somewhat challenged thinking there’s no more you can do but this is wrong to think at any time so you must stop that negative thinking. There are things you need to do so please do keep plugging away knowing you are on the right path and remember that any path can have many unexpected and unforeseen twists and turns.
The Grand Trine we have presently will help you with what you need to accomplish adding even a dose of good luck to what’s in store for you and what you must do. Your family life could improve, your finances could take a turn for the better with good planning, and your job could prove a source of change and or betterment. The Full Moon of March 8th should have illuminated areas of your life that you wish to improve or you could already have seen some improvement if even in your attitude. The Grand Trine includes the planets Jupiter (luck), Venus (love and finances), Mars (in a weakened position but helpful anyway), and Pluto (introspection for you). They will help you, please know that. Residential and housing situations are on your mind and this situation is closely tied with a family member. Things are going to finally reach a culminating point in this regard and it seems no matter the outcome you will feel relieved. Venus and Jupiter will be talking to Pluto which is in your eighth house of other people’s money (creditors, bankers, loans, credit lines, mortgages, refinances, taxes, capital, legal or other court settlements, property and asset division, etc.). The Full Moon of March 8th should have indicated, or indicates to you now as you read this, what this area of influence is so i hope you were acting quickly enough before Mercury went Retrograde today, March 12th. The Full Moons have an influence within four days of the day, so think four days before and after, which means that by today you would have done well to reach an agreement and sign (hopefully you did) before today, my better advised day would have been no later than Saturday, march 9th. It seems what’s on your mind is very property related as Pluto is your house of finances and Mars is in your fourth house of home. If nothing was settled before today then it will have to wait until mid to late April for your best interests. Mars has been in Retrograde phase since January and will go Direct April 13th. Pluto’s help will ensure that the help you need to solve this matter comes and while this is Mercury Retrograde time, think carefully about what you do and what you sign as this is not the time to sign if at all possible. Naturally, there are times we cannot put things on hold and if so, please make sure you understand everything as there is too much possibility that things are not as you’d understood, something changes, or things just don’t pan out the way you thought they would. It looks good though I will again remind you it is far better that you finalize negotiations in mid to late April if you didn’t before March 9th. If you did finalize things by March 8th I’d suspect you’ve been in talks since February. If your house is upside down or otherwise not worth what you owe please seek help immediately. Pluto will help you, again, here.
You may have been concerned by a female family member, a close friend, or even your daughter. You’ve likely been worried sick about this person and have been under a lot of stress because of her (Full Moon). You can rest assured things will go better now though not as soon as you’d like due to Saturn’s influence. Take heart that things are going to change for the better, you can only do so much to help this person, and in time all things will be what they need to be.
Contemplate: A financial situation involving likely your primary residence has been keeping you up at night — so has a female close to you — and things are going to work out eventually. If you could not solve this otherwise financial related matter, sign and finalize by March 9th, chances are you will need to wait — or should try — until mid to late April. Take heart, dear Gemini, things will improve steadily over time and it won’t be too much longer now. God bless!
For the week of Monday, March 5, 2012
You’ve worked hard on yourself and created clearer ideas of what you want to accomplish than in recent times, Gemini. For this, you should certainly feel a sense of some accomplishment. No matter if what you’re trying to do is going slowly, understand that at least you are doing your best every day to get there. I know you’ve had enough on your plate to deal with lately and sometimes that breaks your concentration — can even upset you quite a lot — when you’re in your thinking cap. What you need to remember is that, cliche as it sounds, Rome was not built in a day and all things good and great take time to accomplish without skipping steps along the way. Try to remember that it took you time to formulate your plan and it will take time to keep those plans on task. If something slips a little, catch it, put it back into gear, and keep the ball rolling forward. Sometimes we forget that we have other obligations like family responsibilities, job, work efforts, and even recreation to keep going and to keep us healthy. Try to keep lists of what you are accomplishing rather than smack yourself around for what you feel you aren’t getting done right. If you feel you aren’t doing well enough, stop that! Just try to do the best you can every day. Financial concerns have been on your mind and you’ve been working the problem best you can. Of course, depending on the severity of the same, you may feel more pressured to accomplish more quickly. Understand that you can only do so much in a day and if you pressure yourself too much you’re going to take your frustration out on another person and cause yourself and others a lot of grief. You’re doing alright, Gemini, and perhaps others aren’t pulling their weight. Your responsibility first and foremost is to yourself and that will benefit others in time. If someone’s not helping you enough, say so — without irritation — simply by stating what you need and want them to do to help you.
Contemplate: You’re on the right track, Gemini, despite some usual frustration. Just handle what you must, one task at a time, and multi task without frustrating yourself and that means taking some time to rest your mind, too. Much love to you, Gemini, and God bless — it’s going to be alright soon enough.
For the week of Monday, February 6, 2012
Change is good, Gemini, even when we don’t want change. But change is also necessary. If we don’t allow change to take place we risk stagnation, complacency, and nothing happens. Consider inertia: do you want to be in a constant state of whatever it is that you’re in now? Whether or not you want this change it is coming and perhaps even over due. If the change is about yourself and your internal processes, that’s good, too. It’s fundamental and necessary to allow change to encourage growth and you know this, changing as you are and resistant to it as you often feel. If the changes are occurring through you but in a personal relationship, it could be quite uncomfortable for not only the next person but you as well. Emotional relationships are usually hard to change, allow change in, and sometimes we just leave things as they are and in that way we risk growing resentment toward our partners. Changes could also be taking place in your attitudes and feelings about money and responsibility and this may cause some friction in the home in the sense others may have become accustomed to your previous leniency in spending habits. If you are taking the responsibility to implement these changes, and further, if you are going to be the “bad guy” for doing do, do what you feel is right and others will have to deal with the reality of the changes, too. You can express that the spending is too much, that the fun needs to be curtailed, and in a close relationship I can imagine it’s not going to go over well. Perhaps you’ve been too generous with a child or partner, or allowing them the freedom to spend that which is driving you to the point of looking for another source of income — and that’s not fair to you, is it, Gemini? No, you’re right, it’s not. You don’t much like the idea of being one thing or another but in this case, you’re right and should go ahead and allow the changes, make the changes, go with the changes, regardless of other’s thoughts on the matter. You’re not being insensitive, you’re being responsible. As it is, you are likely so wound up and stressed with job, work, deadlines, and finances that you are allowing this shift to take place naturally. Do go ahead with these changes within and outside of yourself and much good will come of this and others can either work with you or or not, but change you will.
Contemplate: Change isn’t easy but right now, it’s necessary for you. Do what needs to be done and don’t bother much with the fall out.
For the week of Monday, January 30, 2012
Gemini, you like to dot all your i’s and cross all your t’s and that’s good but it can also take your focus off what you’re doing. Don’t worry about the details as much as you should be focusing on the big picture. Quite often you obsess a bit — now, don’t take this wrong! — and when things are a little stressful you freak out a bit. You’ve been working hard on something, a project, a financial course correction — maybe even improving the communication in your relationship. You’ve set a plan in motion to be more receptive and flexible and even easier on other’s shortcomings. So, why is it that you are so hard on yourself when you feel you’ve made a mistake, even blaming yourself for something that was quite out of your hands after you did all you could? That’s not a very kind thing to do to yourself, Gemini, especially now that you’ve really analyzed all sides of a particular situation and know what you need to get done.
Take some time to thank your lucky stars that your thinking is more objective and focused these days and realized — with a pat on your back — that you have done well to learn your lessons and not repeat them. Making changes that are good for you are not always easy and just like anything else, sometimes things don’t go as well as we hope. There is a saying my father used to say often, and it translates into, “There isn’t anything bad that doesn’t happen for a good reason.” Think of that next time there’s a tiny glitch before you call it all a big failure. You’re doing well so just keep on this same course and everything’s going to work out.
You’ve been feeling a sense that things are not just in your control, Gemini, and that’s right: God and spirit are with you, the Divine is watching over you so there’s no need to worry as much as you have. The new moon of the 22nd is taking you to a higher state of mind and you are now more able to really work this new state into your daily life. Keep in mind that you are in a new state of flux but the changes are actually quite good for you and your loved ones.
Contemplate: You can do this: just keep doing it!

So often you feel good about something, Gemini, and then you let someone burst your bubble! Why let anyone else make you feel bad for the effort you put into what makes you feel better about yourself? Even if the next person puts you down and makes what you have done to better yourself or your situation seem trivial, don’t let it bother you and don’t let it sink in too deep. What does their opinion matter, anyway? Do you really need this person’s approval? If you think about it, you really don’t need anyone’s approval but your own. Besides, like I always say, if no one’s paying me they don’t have to like what I’m doing. Now, it’s easier to ignore put downs from people we don’t really like but it’s harder and more painful to ignore hurtful words from someone we thought cared for us. The only thing to do in the latter case is to say something like, “Wow, I didn’t know you were so SUPPORTIVE of me” and let it go. As it is, you know what you need to do to feel better about yourself, improve your financial situation, or even work on improving your relationships. If someone you thought was your friend makes you feel bad about yourself, well, they aren’t really being a very good friend, are they?
Contemplate: Just put some headphones on and keep doing what you’re doing.

Feeling under the weather, Gemini? You may be over tired and over stressed. You have feel like you bit off a little more than you can chew because you want to make changes and course corrections and now you feel a little too much pressure. But, have you considered that in these goals you’ve created, you’re so intent on those same goals, whether self improvement, financial remedies or betterment, that you’ve forgotten there are people around you who need you, too? It may seem like an irritant to think there are needy people around you while you have such important things to work on — things that you feel you don’t have enough energy for already — that the idea of being there for someone else gets on your nerves? Consider that the people who love you most are always there for you and even while you’re busy, they’d like to continue supporting you…and they’d like your attention, too. Try to make task lists and prioritize what you need to do and don’t forget that the people who need your attention should never be on the list: they should always be a priority in your life. Of course, that’s easier said than done because you feel you need to quickly remedy a pressing financial matter or the things you’ve let slide for a while now while you were having holiday fun. Just don’t forget how you feel when you need some attention, sometimes you’ve needed a lot of attention, and how the people you wanted to attend to you did so without question. You were their priority and always are so be sure to make your loved ones feel special while you tackle what must needs be done.
Contemplate: A little affection goes a long way.
