You loved it so I’m re-posting it!

Relationships.  Probably the most popular topic in astrology.  Everyone wants to know more about the one they are attracted to.  What is it that makes us attracted to that one across the room?  First thing’s first.  In your natal promise, Venus indicates what you appreciate in your partners, what you are attracted to and why you would make a commitment.  It even describes what type of wedding you would have and what gifts you enjoy receiving.  If there are any challenging aspects in your chart or other strong influences in your chart, some of the Venus qualities will be detracted or lessened.  Depicted below are descriptions of Venus in the signs purely (with no consideration for other factors in your chart).  Enjoy!

Mercury in Scorpio: Watch Your Mouth!

Standard

Words-can-hurt-words-can-heal.-The-choice-is-yours-250x171

As of yesterday Mercury is now in Scorpio.  Communication takes on a raw uncut form.  So raw that it may stir up some STRONG emotions within you and/or the person you are speaking to.  Use this energy wisely.  You can hurt or heal with it.  One thing is for sure, you can do yourself a favor and get to the point.  The BS will not fly!  Mercury in Scorpio sees/hears/perceives RIGHT through it like x-ray vision.  We will be dealing with this energy til early December because Mercury will retrograde while it’s in Scorpio too, but not yet so don’t get your undies in a bunch!  “The tongue like a sharp knife… Kills without drawing blood.” – Buddha

Red, White, and Blue

Red, White, and Blue

The 4th of July is when the Sun reaches the same degree of Cancer as the Sirius Constellation (which stays stationery at approx 13 degrees of Cancer in the heavens)…Sirius has 3 major stars which flicker RED, WHITE and BLUE (sound familiar)…Cancer energy deals with patriotism (your home base, your roots, your heritage)…as I have mentioned many many times, the Sun represents where our attention goes…so while the Sun is in Cancer our attention goes to the things I mentioned above (among many other)…are you connecting the dots? I can’t help but wonder if the fireworks are related to the flickering of Sirius in the heavens/night sky…ya dig? ♥

Gemini Season: Variety is the Spice of Life!

Standard

“I’ll take a little of this and a little of that…”  That’s the theme of Gemini season!  Sampling and exploring one’s curiosity is a major part of the learning process.  The news mimics the Gemini energy in that you see several stories ranging from local crime to sports to useless trivia within a small amount of time.  Whatever you hear or see on the news, you walk away from it learning SOMETHING.  And just like a news reporter goes to the scene and interviews the neighbors, “what did you see? What did you hear? What’s your opinion?…” because they witnessed the crime, Gemini energy is always seeking out information one way or another!  Let’s examine why Gemini energy is so nosy…I mean informed! 🙂

Grade school really exemplifies the Gemini energy on many levels.  From entering kindergarten to graduation of the 12th grade we are asked to use our rational mind, express our thoughts, and communicate effectively.  Think about all the elements in a classroom or a learning environment.  We learn the alphabet, how to write our names (in print and cursive), how to read, how to speak, and to demonstrate how many lessons we have retained as each level is reached.  At the beginning of each school year we get a long list of school supplies where we all run out to STAPLES to get notebooks, pens, pencils, folders, labels, etc – anything to record our thoughts, lessons, or information being conveyed to us.  This is why people born during Gemini season love writing, reading, talking, magazines, word games, books, anything to get what’s on their mind out or to get something in their mind to keep them occupied!  A bored Gemini is a mischievous Gemini! Lol.  This is how Gemini gets the reputation of being the trickster.

The time of year when Gemini season begins is right around the end of the school year when these grade school activities are most prominent.  Students are studying for final exams, writing essays, and making closing oratory presentations.  This is also the time of the year when the neighborhood is abuzz with children going on school dances, proms, and graduations.  Many nosy neighbors stick their heads out of the window to see what the fuss is or to take pictures of the children they have seen grow up over the years participate in the milestone traditions.  Even at graduation ceremonies, Gemini energy is found where names are called to receive diplomas (paper), speeches are made, even yearbooks are signed – anything that spells out “I’ve learned something!”

Mercury, the planet that influences the Gemini energy, moves around the zodiac the fastest visiting each sign every 7.5 days (not including retrograde periods).  This is what makes Gemini energy so changeable and varied taking tidbits of experiences and information from everywhere.  Gemini is associated with the hands, arms, lungs, and veins in the body.  The veins carry the messages from the brain to the rest of the body parts just as people born under Gemini energy carry the message from one source to another connecting all the right people together.  Just like you cram before a test, SOME Gemini folk know just enough to hold conversation about a topic, but they aren’t concerned with the details because they are already bored and are moving on to the next topic.  Whether it’s writing, using sign language, whispering a secret, greeting with a handshake, or picking up a book, the hands and arms are essential to the way we communicate and express ourselves!

Themes of Gemini Season: Twins, siblings, neighbors, people you see “around the way”; newsworthy stories, eyewitness testimony (this is how Gemini gets the bad reputation of loving gossip, but really it is Gemini’s need to share what they have learned by what they saw, read, or heard); Messenger Birds – parrots, pigeons, doves are all related to Gemini because of their communicative reputation (this is why Twitter and the United States Postal Service uses birds in their logos); Greeting cards, phone calls, speeches, words of encouragement; Books, magazines, newspapers, notebooks, crossword puzzles, sketchbooks, pens/pencils, and anything else to keep our minds occupied! ~Cosmo Krys, TCR ©2013
