More cosmic alignments coming up:

June 4:  Super Full Moon Lunar Eclipse 4:12 am (14 Sagittarius 14)
June 5:  Venus occultation 6:31 pm (15 Gemini 44)
  (Venus/Sun conjunction, duration 6 hours…Venus crosses in front of the Sun)

An eclipse marks the end of old patterns. The last one was close to the South Node, which is also about releasing old patterns.

A Full Moon brings the energy of the last New Moon to a peak, or to fruition. A Full Moon Eclipse brings us to a peak then releases that energy in a big way.

 If you do choose to break a pattern, there are four steps to take (borrowed from somewhere in the internet universe):

1. Identify the pattern that is causing you a problem.
2. Identify how you set yourself up.
2. Commit to taking a new course.
3. Follow through, even when the going gets rough.
If you do this, you’ll find yourself liberated from an oppressive pattern and free to chart a new course.

With the current focus on Gemini/Sagittarius we are being asked to examine our attachment to these outmoded self-limiting beliefs, concepts and ideas and focus on the bigger picture.

Outmoded = not working anymore. Stuck. Stagnant. Done.

The Sag/Gemini polarity is also about thinking vs. feeling. Belief vs. inner knowing.

The Full Moon, Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius urges us to know who we are. Sagittarius is the seeker.  It speaks of purpose, of our urge to know and be our expansive, higher self.

Adding to that, in a few days Venus will pass in front of the Sun and amplify the true meaning of everything. Venus is the planet of LOVE.

In passing in front of the sun, she is flagging our attention and  reminding us that Love is our purpose.

I know this sounds so new agey, and yet in reality it is actually quite practical.

Our internal belief systems create pathways for us to walk upon. As we think, so we are. 

Sow a thought, reap an action,
Sow an action reap a habit,
Sow a habit, reap a pattern, 
sow a pattern reap a lifetime, 
 a lifetime of habitual patterns.....

Gemini is all about exactly that: how we think and how we express and exchange those beliefs (thus reinforcing them) For instance, when we are filled with self-hate or self-criticism, we find fault in everything and everyone.  We complain a lot.

Or, because of lacking  a sense of our intrinsic value (knowing we are good enough) we  miss opportunities and/or settle for less. This can manifest in lousy relationships, in unsatisfying work, in money issues etc. When we examine our values we can see that a lack of self love is not productive and limits our effectiveness in the world, making us miserable and deeply dissatisfied.

Where does our value come from? What do we value most in life? Are we being true to that? What’s love got to do with it?

It’s time to think long and hard about what those limiting core beliefs may be; and let them go so we can step into our personal best, whatever that may be. 

As the current eclipses help us release the past and make way for a more fulfilling reality,  the  Full Moon in Sag will then ask us to step up to the plate. Be who you are. Claim your truth. 

And right now Venus, planet of love, is the planet to watch .

This rare occurrence of Venus crossing in front of the sun, brings all the these issues  of self worth and personal value to the forefront … literally.

While Venus has been retracing its steps backward through Gemini, the focus of love has been turned inward, asking us to renew/review our attitudes toward and around love and relating and how we communicate love and value in our lives.

Venus also highlights our relationship with money, as money is a part of what we value or consider valuable and a means of exchanging energy.  Money issues are so loaded around self worth, and issues of deserving.  Do you deserve the very best? What does that mean to you? What constitutes value in your life? Are you worth it?

There is so much more to all this but I think you get the gist. 

When we combine all of these messages, they are really saying the same thing. Open your heart. Let go of the past. Know who you are. Value who you are. Be who you are!!!!!   LOVE.

I truly believe that only love can change the world. Not anger. Not aggression. Not politics. All they do is polarize. 

It’s very timely that this Venus crossing occurs just as  we head toward the first exact square between Pluto and Uranus on June 10th. Love and understanding may well be put to the test as  rebellion and revolution polarize people into opposite camps.

And whether that polarity is manifesting in our own personal psyches or in out the streets, we need to be consciously aware that if we seek to overthrow these old archaic, destructive institutions and old ways of thinking, (and rightly so) we must be clear on what are we going to replace them with.    Be the change we want to see in the world....

Sing along with me....

(What the World Needs Now is Love Sweet Love)

"That which you are seeking is inside of you."    (Prem Rawat)

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. 
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. 
It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. 
We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? 
Actually, who are you not to be? 

You are a child of God. 
Your playing small does not serve the world. 
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. 

It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. 
And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”                     Maryanne Williamson


  1. The final quotation here, 'Our deepest fear...' is from Nelson Mandela.

    This is an inspiring and well-focused page I shall recommend to others. Thank-you

  2. Oops correction...misquoted as from Nelson Mandela commonly! :))

  3. Thanks Lynn for stopping by. Yes its often thought to be from Mandela. Maryanne Williamson used it in her book 'A return to Love'.
