Mercury stationed direct a few hours ago, and we’re heading to the Gemini New Moon on June 16, 2015.
But before that Saturn returns to Scorpio on the eve of the New Moon on June 15, 2015 marking another major milestone in our journey. You can expect life to pick up speed over the coming weeks and we’re in a very busy and important month, with major aspects taking place between planets daily.
This leads up to the grand and benevolent conjunction of Venus and Jupiter in Leo at the end of the month, offering much hope and cause for celebration.
As it is with Mercury stations, there’s important information surfacing, presenting you with important choices.
Especially with the transit taking place in Gemini (Mercury’s home sign) pay attention to the conversations you’re having and be open to learn, rather than think you know the whole story — because you don’t. We’re recovering territory bringing you renewed understanding of a situation, allowing you to renegotiate arrangements and make informed choices. Listen and learn.
Mercury being the fastest planet, closest to the Sun, its retrograde phases occur three times a year. As frustrating as the delays it often brings are, (my computer keyboard decided to stop working last night while I was typing and trying to post this Blog and has miraculously resurrected itself this morning) Mercury retrogrades do get a bad rap. The Universe is not without rhyme or reason, even if its reasons aren’t always apparent to us. But when we study astrology, we’re essentially trying to understand these cosmic rhythms which we are a part of.
The more we internalize a process, we can channel the energy, rather than feeling like something is happening to us. Studying the nature of Mercury we get a clue into the mind itself, which is inherently dualistic in nature and exists in the past or the future. It is incapable of existing in the present — where reality is. And far too often we get caught up in our perceptions of the world; ideas of what it is and should be like — which distort our vision of reality.
But the world is what it is. We are the one’s who have to adapt and learn our place in it. Mercury retrograde phases are the Universe’s way of getting us to slow down, clear perceptions and pay attention to what is in front of us. And these phases, especially the day of the direct and retrograde station when Mercury is standing still in the sky, it’s a chance to move beyond the mind and recognise you are separate from it; you are the master of your mind, and its important you use it as a tool, rather than allow it to be your master.
Also with the Gemini New Moon, just days from now on June 15, 2015 we’re entering a new cycle, showing you a different side to the story. Significantly on the same day Saturn re-enters Scorpio until September. Wherever you have Scorpio in your chart — this is your final chance for the next 30 years (till Saturn re-enters this part of the zodiac) to embody his lessons and master them well, before you set forth again on your journey of Saturn in Sagittarius.
Saturn has been transiting through Sagittarius since late December 2014 bringing you a glimpse into the road ahead over the coming years. Now as it leaves Sagittarius, on the eve of the New moon there’s a sense of an obstacle being lifted, revealing new roads or then a road that was previously closed now opening up.
This naturally presents you with huge choices (especially with the heavy Gemini influence in the air) that will alter the course of your life and journey. Given all you’ve learned over the past six months, you have a chance to make course corrections, resolve unfinished business and shed baggage over the coming few months, so you can travel light as you continue with your journey.
Also at the end of the month, we’re moving to a bold, beautiful and bodacious conjunction of Venus and Jupiter — the two benefits. Whatever is going on in your life right now, whatever you most desire — you couldn’t ask for a better sign from the Universe suggesting there’s hope and plenty of it. If at all you’re experiencing this transit as dramatic in not such a pleasant way, or experiencing this transit as anything less than joyful, I would seriously advise you to let go of expectations as well as your ego, pride defenses that keep you from recognizing the gift it holds for you.
I’ve interpreted these and other daily aspects this month in detail in the June Monthly Cosmic Weather sent out to subscribers. You can sign up here to receive this in your mail. Please allow 24-48 hours for delivery. Also I will be travelling and in transit on the 13th-14th of the month, so if you order it then, please allow an extra day for delivery.
On that note, I’m in the midst of packing and wrapping up lose ends as I fly to NYC on the 14th. Also, my computer wll be n the shp snce my keybard has sddenly started actng p agan. (I’ve had to copy paste the i, o, u keys for this part of the Blog.) So I will be offline (or online sparingly) for the next few days till June 15-16, 2015.
Barring jet-lag, I plan to hit the ground running once I get to the other side and I will also be available for in-person Consultations in NYC in the second half of June so please email me early if you’d like to set up an in person appointment appointment. (Of course I’m also available for Skype or phone Consultations no matter where in the world you are.)
I’ll have a lot more to say once I get to NYC — but in the meanwhile, a very Happy New Moon to you. Catch you on the other side…
Important Note about the 2015 – 2016 and beyond Horoscopes — To those who’ve ordered the Horoscopes, if you still haven’t received the passwords for any reason, please email me. Also, I’ve corrected the Scorpio link so if you haven’t checked that, please check back in.
If you haven’t yet read/ordered your 2015 – 2016 and beyond Horoscopes, here’s the link. Please order them by the Gemini New Moon if you want to get them at the pre-order price (a steal considering what went into them and what I hope you will get out of them.) Also if you order them now on or by June 16, 2015, you get a discount on Consultations for the rest of the year.
