Gemini Solar Eclipse and New Moon | Most of the Time

“Most of the time
My head is on straight
Most of the time
I’m strong enough not to hate
I don’t build up illusion ’til it makes me sick
I ain’t afraid of confusion no matter how thick
I can smile in the face of mankind
Don’t even remember what her lips felt like on mine
Most of the time”

“Most of the Time,” Bob Dylan


We’re heading into the Gemini New Moon and Solar Eclipse, exact at 9:06 PM UT on June 1, 2011.

As Eclipses go, this one in Gemini can be a real brain-twister to put it politely and mildly. (Something I have to admit I’ve had a hard time to doing lately — controlling my mind and tongue! This Eclipse is conjunct my Jupiter in my 8th house.)

But the Eclipse is a reminder that one who is centered in himself or herself, is able to have clarity enough to deflect others’ or his or her own mental projections and not own, identify with or be a slave to them and open him or herself to truth.

This one is ushering us into a rare Eclipse season with three Eclipses back to back, suggesting a rapid change and turn of events. June will enter us into a period of negotiation and July asks us to take a jump.

Below are a few passages on aspects and energy surrounding this Eclipse — including Ceres’ powerful square to the Lunar Nodes this month marking a turn in collective destiny.

Also as an after thought to what came to me earlier at the time of writing the report below: The Ceres aspect this may relate not only to the food and world hunger crisis. But given the recent disaster in Japan I think it is hugely imperative that we start caring more for the ocean and sea life, or it is due to become a sea of lethal poison that quite literally knows no bounds.  And I hope that coming Eclipses will shed a light on the extreme importance of this issue.

As you begin this cycle no matter how divided you feel, try to stay centered and open to a greater truth coming through. There may be a sense of walking on the extreme edge, feeling like one wrong move and you could be hurtling into an abyss. But there is more stability here than anything you’re seeing the dark side of. And any efforts to communicate, negotiate and bring peace to a situation will not be in vain.

We are learning precious truth. But rather than anything external this has more to do with quietening down long enough to listening to that inner voice that often speaks in silent whispers…

Excerpts from June Astrology Overview ==

(These passages are taken from this June’s Astrology Overview sent out to Cosmic Diaries Premium Subscribers. If you like what you read, please consider getting a subscription or you can read the full report for free with a one-week free trial.)

“The houses in your chart represented by Gemini and Sagittarius, represent the areas in your life where you will see the greatest shifts occurring. This transition will complete around mid-2012 once the Nodes shift from Sagittarius-Gemini. As you enter the New Moon and Eclipse on June 1, 2011 let go of perception and go inward to clear your mind of destructive thoughts.

“There is a sense of having to wipe the slate clean – perhaps with choices and decisions we have only recently made. But this is a gift and the planets are offering us a fresh start asking us to re-write rules and choose in the present based on the information and truth we are now learning. Success in relationships, both business and personal will depend on our ability to communicate and negotiate.”

“This is a greater story emerging, which first began to unfold around Dec. 21, 2010 (the first of this series of Eclipses in Gemini-Sagittarius) when a Full Moon in Gemini brought hugely important revelations to light and marking the end of a chapter.

“But an end is always a beginning and now six months later we are at the beginning of a new chapter that can usher in peace, stability and harmony. It also forms an exact trine to Saturn (currently retrograde/stationary about to station direct) in Libra bringing is a solid aspect for a new start within relationships. We can choose to let go of the past and start over, but there can be no half-hearted effort.


“One of the most important aspects occurs as Ceres in Pisces forms a potent square to the North Node during these Eclipses. Any planet that squares the Nodes marks the resolution point for individual and collective destiny. Ceres is the asteroid that relates with nourishment and food. World hunger is a very real concern that seems to conveniently slip away unnoticed in the face of the more dramatic issues and the wars we are busy waging. With Jupiter entering Taurus, there is no need for starvation to continue to be a cause of death in this world.

“There is enough food on this planet for those who are hungry to have two meals a day. But nothing will happen unless this becomes a priority and we use our energy to effectively distribute resources to those in need. Hopefully these Eclipses will mark a shift in global consciousness where we begin to use direct our attention towards this life and death issue.”

“Also on a symbolic level look at what you are feeding into this cycle or a situation. Only through love and compassion can there be healing. Withholding one’s energy, bliss or love only brings greater pain. Ceres was the goddess that even brought Pluto to his knees, and the whole world went into darkness, there was no life, nothing grew until Pluto returned Persephone to her mother. This is Universal energy, love and compassion that need to be shared or it can be a dark night of the soul for everyone.”

Monthly Astrological Overview: May 2011


We’re edging ever closer now towards the Gemini New Moon and Partial Solar Eclipse exact at 9:02 PM UT on June 1, 2011.

As the Moon enters Gemini late Tuesday / early Wednesday, (depending on where you are in the world,) there may be a sense of extreme edginess and feeling divided about something.

Gemini represents the mind and its dual nature and with the Sun in Gemini right now the contrast between good and bad may be all too stark.

But currently the Moon is in Taurus (its sign of exaltation) in its extreme waning phase, asking us to release negative thoughts emotions and ground ourselves what is of value. Steer clear from the dark side and find a centered perspective if you want to be open to “truth.”

This New Moon is presenting us with an important choice. But its trine to Saturn suggests if we are able to go inward to quiet the mind, seek peace and mental balance, there can be great clarity and solidity as we begin this new cycle.

If Gemini represents information, “beliefs,” Sagittarius represents knowledge, an absolute all encompassing truth or ‘God.’

On a related note — I was at my (maternal) grandparents’ house the other day an discovered a collection of my grandfather’s (now passed but whom I shared a close connection with) old books. In it I found the ‘Complete Works of The Swami Vivekananda’ and as I opened it my eyes fell upon a passage that spoke of the energy of this energy of the Gemini-Sagittarius and explaining vividly how it manifests in our lives.

Below, is the passage and a few more selected excerpts from the book—transcribed from a series of talks given in 1895, over a hundred years ago. But then again, truth is eternal and timeless.

Also please read the May Monthly Astrology Overview, sent out to subscribers of the Cosmic Diaries Premium Service at the beginning of this month.

In Love,

Excerpts from ‘Complete Works of The Swami Vivekananda’ Vol. 7


“Creation is not the making of something, it is the struggle to regain equilibrium, as when atoms of cork are thrown to the bottom of a pail of water and rush to rise to the top, singly or in clusters. Life is and must be accompanied by evil. A little evil is the source of life; the little wickedness that is in the world is very good for when the balance is regained, the world will end, because sameness and destruction are one. When this world goes, good and evil go with it; but when we transcend this world we get rid of both good and evil and have bliss.

“There is no possibility of ever having pleasure without pain, good without evil, living itself is the loss of equilibrium. What we want is freedom, not life, nor pleasure nor good. Creation is infinite without beginning and without end.”


We divide ourselves in two to love God, –myself, loving my self. God has created me and I have created God. We create God in our image; it is we who create Him to be our master, it is not God who makes us his servants. When we know that we are one with God, that and he and friends, then come equality and freedom. So long as you hold yourself separated by a hair’s breadth from this Eternal One, fear cannot go.


“When we know the Self we understand. The highest expression of love is unification.”

“There was a time when I was a woman and he was a man.
Still love grew until there was neither he nor I;
Only I remember faintly there was a time when there were two.
But love came between and made them one.”


“Until you are ready to change any minute you can never see the truth; but you must hold fast and be steady in search for the truth.”


Evil thoughts, looked at materially, are the disease bacilli.

Each thought is a little hammer blow on the lump of iron which our bodies are, manufacturing out of it what we want it to be.

We are heirs to all the good thoughts of the universe, if we open ourselves to them.


“To try to think with a phantasm is to try to make the impossible possible. We cannot think “mammalia” without concrete example. So with the idea of God. The great abstraction of ideas in the world is what we call God.”


“Extreme love and highest knowledge are one.”
