Finding Meaning Through New Experiences | Full Moon in Sagittarius  | Vedic Astrology Forecast for June 20th, 2016

FullMoonOverWaterIn the last week, two planets have moved into Sidereal Gemini.  Venus on June 12th and the Sun shifted on June 14th.

This brings our Soul’s Power (Sun) and our capacity for happiness (Venus) into Gemini’s realm   of playfulness, curiosity and creativity.  Gemini is an air sign, showing its social and mental nature.  It is ruled by Mercury which shows its quick minded intellect and skilled speech and communication.

Gemini is playful, humorous and usually pretty unattached.  It loves new experiences, and has a wonderful capacity to see things from multiple perspectives.  In its own energy, it can be challenged to stick with one idea or one experiences for very long, as it is likely to get bored and then rush off for the next thing.

With Sun and Venus here, you may be finding yourself being drawn to eploring new ideas or experiences.  Perhaps you are just in the mood to be entertained.  Perhaps you are feeling a little open to new ways of exploring pleasure and happiness.  Perhaps you are just feeling a little more free and playful.

On a potentially challenged side, you may also be feeling distracted or having trouble focusing on what you want to manifest in your life.  Or frustrate as you notice others in that state.  Maybe work needs to get done, and your mind is pulling you towards what feels fun instead.

On June 20th around 7am the Moon will be full in Sagittarius.  This is the opposite position from Gemini, and reveals the balancing energy needed to best utilize the Gemini energy.

While our power and happiness is in Gemini, the Moon shows that our mind and emotional heart are are connected to a deeper sense of purpose and seeking meaning.

Left to its own devices, Gemini will just bounce from one idea and experience to another.  The novelty of each perspective will be its own satisfaction.  But, with the Moon in Sagittarius we are invited to find deeper meaning to the experiences and ideas we encounter.  They are not just for fun and entertainment, or even just intellectual stimulation. Instead they become education, ideas and experiences which inform us about the deeper teachings and nature of ourselves and there world around us.

So, you may be finding yourself learning something or exploring something that will be integrated into your own understanding of life and the bigger picture beyond just our human existence.  This could be an intentional learning, or perhaps you will just wax a little more philosophical about the experiences that Gemini pulls you into.

On June 17th, Mars retrograde returned to Libra.  This placement can bring some agitation to relationships right now.  And it also places an aspect on Mercury in Taurus, which shows that our speech, communication and intellect may also feel frustrated.  Since Mercury is the ruler of Gemini, maybe the seeking of fun and new experiences feels agitated instead of enjoyable right now.

For my own experience, I found myself at a weekend training program leading into the full Moon window. So, I was learning and exploring new ideas.  And I was also integrating what I learned into my own understanding of purpose and higher teachings. That shows the balance of Gemini and Sagittarius happening.

The group of people attending were all very friendly and very social.  The workshop leader commented that she had never seen a group of people in her workshops be so social with each other before.  It was the first time she could ever remember that she had to go find all the participants and get them to stop talking to each other when it was time to start back up.  Additionally,  there were many side tangents and unexpected conversations within the group during formal class time.  All of this reflects the influence of Gemini.

I invite you to notice what is happening within you and around you also. What is showing up that reflects these energies for you?

The above is a general Vedic Astrology Forecast. It discusses the shifts that are happening at the level of the Collective experience, as well as how you can use that Collective energy for your own growth and evolution.

The Desire For Happiness | New Moon in Taurus | Vedic Astrology Forecast for June 4th, 2016

New moon in Taurus

The exact point of the New Moon in Sidereal Taurus will happen on June 4th around 11pm EDT. This begins a new Lunar Cycle with a near exact conjunction of Venus, Sun and Moon. It is an activation point which will bring together our Mind/hearts (Moon), our Soul’s Power and Self Identity (Sun) and our capacity for Happiness and enjoyment (Venus).

Taurus is an Earth sign ruled by Venus, showing its invitation to find pleasure and enjoyment within the material world. It enjoys beauty, comfort, and pleasure. This can include sensuality, good food, art and connections to nature. It is also a fixed sign, which adds to the Earth’s natural tendency towards stability. And the Bull is a symbol of Taurus, showing its strength and its slow plodding nature. It is capable of slow and steady action when it is motivated to achieve a desirable outcome. And when it isn’t motivated by a desired outcome, it is indifferent and would rather rest and relax.

Taurus energy is very grounding and stabilizing to the mind. This also reveals how our connection to relaxation, beauty and enjoyment help to ground and stabilize us in the world as well. When life starts to feel out of control, dramatic, or unstable, a good dose of rest, relaxation and the experience of enjoyment are often a great remedy. Since Venus is also here at this time, it will strengthen the deeper connection to happiness and pleasure while the Sun allows us to explore the movement of our Soul’s power in expressing itself through these experiences of enjoyment and rest.

If you have been pushing and forcing your way through life, this New Moon in Taurus is an invitation to give yourself permission to slow down and enjoy nature, time with your family and the pleasures of life. If you aren’t able to stop yourself from pushing, this energy may feel frustrating. But it is a fertile and creative energy that inspired new growth, abundance and clearer awareness of what you really desire in life.

This invitation is also being influenced by an oppositional aspect from Saturn in Scorpio. Saturn in this position may produce some fear or anxiousness and make it more challenging to relax. Saturn may also make us more aware of the nature of time, bringing about either appreciation for the slowness of Taurus and supporting commitment and endurance, or it may also create a feeling pressure for deadlines and frustration with the slowness.

Saturn here may also amplify the desire to be still and rest in a way the creates fear of moving forward. In this context it may amplify the side of Taurus which can get too comfortable and resists changing and growing. So, be sure that you don’t allow the healthy need for rest to become so stable that it becomes “stuckness”.

In the last couple of days building to the New Moon, I have observed this energy operating within my Healing Practice as well. It has brought a wave of new Healing Clients who are seeking to reconnect with the deeper happiness and joy of their own Authentic Self. They are wanting to stabilize their minds (Moon) into greater peace, learn to nurture their own happiness (Venus) and reconnect with their Soul’s Power (Sun). Saturn and Mars have both been retrograde in Scorpio for a while inviting Transformation and using our fears and insecurities as fuel for growth and courage.

The Saturn aspect on the Sun, Moon and Venus has created a pressure within them for wanting to get unstuck, and a stronger desire to commit to their own healing and growth.

What have been your experiences of this energy in your life? Are you ready to commit to your own healing and growth as well?

The above is a general Vedic Astrology Forecast. It discusses the shifts that are happening at the level of the Collective experience, as well as how you can use that Collective energy for your own growth and evolution.
