We are slowly coming down from the energy of a potent and powerful Lunar Eclipse in Gemini. Later tonight at 8:42 PM EST, December 13th, 2011, Mercury (ruler of Gemini) stations direct in Sagittarius — the opposite sign from Gemini. There have been revelations no doubt, and the energy has been polarizing to say the least.
As Mercury comes to a halt before it moves forward again tomorrow, we are standing in the space between the past and the future. Take the time to pause and pay attention to the insights coming through over the next few days.
Although there has been a “retreat” or wanting to after the past few weeks, trust, we’ve gone as far back as we can with a situation. Now as we learn more information we can begin to move forward again on our journey with greater clarity, understanding and a new perspective on a situation that had us feeling split in two.
Also now Venus is approaching a square to Saturn, an aspect that will be exact at the end of the week. Notably Venus and Saturn are in a mutual reception occupying each others signs. No doubt we are learning difficult lessons, and this may take some hard work to integrate. But the mutual reception suggests if we make the effort us find a balance and compromise with this energy, there is a real chance for resolution and a feeling of turning a corner with something that has been a heavy cross to bear.
Also the Sun and Moon will sextile Saturn and Mercury respectively at the time of the Venus-Saturn square suggesting honest communication, wisdom and a willingness to co-operate will take us far, bringing us the real sense of progress we seek.
This year has been challenging to say the least and by now everyone has seen a bit more of reality than they ever thought they could handle. It may not be easy to be as happy go lucky or carefree as we’d like to, or once were. Given all we’ve learned it is only natural we would be cautious or skeptical, but still trust the hope you may be beginning to feel.
This is the season that can thaw even the coldest of hearts. And the planets suggest as long as we keep our feet grounded solidly in reality, and the more we feed a situation with optimism, the more goodwill it is likely to bring forth.
Above all Jupiter’s change of direction on Christmas at the time of the Capricorn New Moon suggests there is definitely more hope left in a situation than we may have only recently thought.
