May 27th, 2011
The following is quoted from brendabrush.com, a great resource for what’s in the stars for us all!
The signs of communication are taking center stage. The last couple of years the Eclipses have been in Cancer and Capricorn. This has brought our attention to jobs, security, real estate, home and family. That has certainly been the focus. Some people have lost their jobs and their homes have been foreclosed. You may not have endured the worst of this but it has brought these issues to the surface in some way. Hopefully you have celebrated some good things in these areas. Major family events may have taken place. Births, deaths, weddings, etc that bring family together. Eclipses bring a turning point. The Eclipses are now emphasizing the signs Gemini and Sagittarius.
December 21st, 2010 there was a Lunar Eclipse at the last degree of Gemini. It was in square to Uranus telling us to expect news of change. Mercury, the ruler of Gemini at that time, went retrograde conjunct Pluto. That began a six month period of potential change and endings. This was the beginning of what now will be a series of Eclipses in Gemini and Sagittarius over the next year and a half. Communication and information is the theme. How we connect with one another with the tools of communication that are available. In this day and age we have plenty of tools. This may have improved our ability to connect but it also has its pitfalls. How we deal with the mass of information that is available to us on every subject is the key. If you want to know something you can just Google it. You may get a variety of opinions that you then have to sort out. We are in the information age. It is the age of communication. In order to succeed you need to be proficient in language skills and the use of these tools. The lowest form of communication is gossip. This is toxic to our lives and to the collective consciousness. It is important for your own well-being to keep your mind focused on more interesting elevating conversation. It is time for us to learn about one another and make good connections. It is good to see the best and encourage its growth. A Lunar Eclipse affects us for 6 months. The December Lunar Eclipse has played out over the last 6 months. The last degree of a sign brings something inevitable. The news of the last 6 months has been pretty intense. It brought circumstances of finality. There was no negotiating or arguing with the information. It was laid out before us. Now what?
On June 1st, 2011 at 5:02 pm there is a Solar Eclipse at 11 degrees 02 minutes of Gemini. This Solar Eclipse will keep this Gemini energy moving. A Solar Eclipse affects us for a couple of years. What do we need to know? It is like the Universe saying, “Listen Up”! There is so much information flying around we need to filter out what is important to us. The Planet Mercury, the ruler of Gemini and Virgo, is the ruler of this Eclipse. Mercury is at the end of the sign Taurus. That message, coming from Taurus, is to take care of what we have. Taurus rules our values, money and it rules the economy. We are being inspired to live greener. We are inspired to simplify. It is time to appreciate what we have and take care of it. The economic down turn of the last few years has been an experience that has forced us to look at our values. It is time to take care…..We need information so we can learn what to do to improve our financial situation. We need information so we know what steps to take. This is why the eclipses are in the signs that give us that information. On a personal level we need to pay attention to what we are thinking and saying. What you say is what you are. What you think about is what you attract. It is important that you think good thoughts. Gossip will backfire on you. What you say about someone will manifest in you. Bring the best out in another person and you will attract that for yourself. This eclipse brings with it the need to have better relationship skills, communication skills, and stand up for what you believe. We could title this eclipse, “The Power of the Word”.
On June 4th, Jupiter moves into Taurus for a year. Jupiter is the Planet of higher knowledge, religion, expansion, and good luck. Taurus is the sign of the Zodiac that rules the economy: ours, the country, or the world. Jupiter’s aim is to educate us so we can live better. The Planet Saturn is the task master. It is in Libra and we are learning about balance and cooperation. The combination of energy is to know our own value, protect it, and bring it into balance. Saturn went retrograde in Libra on January 26th, backing off a bit to give us a chance to take a deeper look at our issues and fix them. Saturn will resume direct motion on June 12th, expecting that the correction has been made while it was retrograde. Get ready for things to begin to move after June 12th. Especially in the area of financial security and relationships.
On June 15th there is a Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse at 4:34 pm at 24 degrees 23 minutes of Sagittarius. This Lunar Eclipse will affect us for 6 months. Sagittarius is the sign of expansion, expert information, travel, education, and religion. Both Gemini and Sagittarius have to do with information but Gemini is local and Sagittarius is global. Gemini is word of mouth and Sagittarius comes from informed sources. It is interesting that the New Moon/Solar Eclipse June 1st had Mercury, the ruler, in Taurus and the June 15th Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius has Jupiter, the ruler, in Taurus. The information, no matter where it comes from, the ruler of either eclipse is in Taurus. The knowledge we are receiving is practical, it is about survival, and it is about taking care of what we have. Greed is gone. It is not happening. It is time to live more authentically. It is time to live within our means. I think this is the message. We know it is the information age and we know the eclipses are emphasizing that, but the information that is useful to our well being is coming from the sign Taurus. This is practical, solid, and sustainable. We could title this eclipse, “Put Your Money where your Mouth is”.
A year and a half from now the Eclipses will move into Taurus and Scorpio, the signs of power and money. These current eclipses, in the signs of information, are giving us a heads up. It is time to get on top of things so we are coming from a secure spot. We have the opportunity over the next 12 months to improve our financial outlook and then when the eclipses begin to enhance those areas we will be prepared for more.
June is really a month that brings a turning point in our lives. We gain more tools, we learn more, and we can put this to use to improve our lives. Mars is an activator. When Mars touches the point where an Eclipse took place it activates it. Mars enters Gemini on June 20th at 10:50 pm EDT. This is an important moment because it is about 15 hours before the Summer Solstice on the 21st. It brings the Summer Season in with energy. Mars crosses 11 degrees of Gemini, the degree of the Solar Eclipse that occurred on June 1st, on the 4th through the 6th of July. It will be an important time for you to notice what is going on around you. Gemini rules your neighborhood, your community, and everything near at hand. It is time to be vigilant in thought, word, and deed.
On June 28th the Sun in Cancer is in opposition to Pluto in Capricorn. This is a Full Phase. The Sun joined Pluto to start a yearly cycle last December 26th at 5 degrees of Capricorn. This brings up territorial and boundary issues. What is yours and where do you belong? These things will be at the forefront of our minds. How can we live together peacefully? The things that have transpired since then, that you probably have had no control over will come to bear fruit on the 28th of June. A transformation in your life will have taken place. You will turn a corner.
This brings us to July 1st, a New Moon at 4:54 am EDT at 9 degrees Cancer 12 minutes is occurring, and by the way, it is a Solar Eclipse. The last two years we have had a series of Eclipses in Cancer and Capricorn. They have now given way to a new series of Eclipses in Gemini and Sagittarius. There is one straggler left and here it is; just to remind us that the issues at hand still have to do with home, family and career. At the time of this Eclipse, the Planet Mercury is at the last degree of Cancer. This brings us some important information. On July 21st, 2009 the first Eclipse in Cancer took place. It was a Solar Eclipse at the last degree of the sign Cancer. A Solar Eclipse stays active for a couple of years. On July 1st the last Solar Eclipse in Cancer of this series will occur and Mercury will be at 29 degrees of Cancer at that moment and is reactivating that major Eclipse of a couple years ago. This is reminding us about the issues around home, family, and security. We need to care about our own families as well as our world family. Let’s make this July a month where we establish loving connections with our families. The tools of communication that are available to us are helping to connect with long lost family members and friends. This will be a summer to remember. Make it wonderful. There may have been major changes within your family over the last couple of years. This is a time to accept, heal, and settle down.
The theme is to set our minds to creating a loving world to live in. It is time to have a beautiful vision of what you want: Think it, Feel it, and Communicate it. It will surely happen.
All times are for EST time and when appropriate EDT.
