Gemini 2010 ~ Cultivating Your Authentic Voice

The truth is that our finest moments
are most likely to occur when we are feeling
deeply uncomfortable, unhappy, or unfulfilled.
For it is only in such moments,
propelled by our discomfort,
that we are likely to step out of our ruts
and start searching for ...
different ways or truer answers.

Searching for "different ways" (Gemini) or "truer answers" (Sagittarius) ... May I remind you that as a "human" you are dual by nature (Gemini) ... and so much MORE! (Sagittarius) Add "human" to "being" and now you are *multi-dimensional*. I find it far more useful these days to look at the energies AND their polar opposites to get a more balanced understanding of what I am experiencing. And beyond that, I notice, I've been reminding people almost constantly that "life has become an 'AND' ... not an either/or". You have to multi-task to get ANYTHING accomplished and/or completed these days. Why is that? Because, you are SIMULTANEOUSLY: dying and being born anew; leaving the past behind and moving toward an unknown future; releasing and acquiring on a multitude of levels. You, my multi-dimensional friend, have many layers to your being which are being activated and/or shifted in dramatic and permanent ways.

Gemini time is the *approach* of the 6-month mark of the year and Summer Solstice, just as its polar opposite, Sag, is the *approach* of the culmination of the year at Winter Solstice. At this stage, we are still gathering information that will (hopefully) translate into Sag's wisdom come the completion of this annual cycle. Every year around Gemini time, several planets retrograde (appear to pull back, slow down or reverse altogether) indicating it is time to 'gather information' to make better decisions upon forward movement in a month or two. At this time, multiple aspects of our individual and collective lives require that we 'check-in' and 'assess' where we are, how far we've come and just how much further we have to go. Review the last 6 months so you can make any necessary adjustments for the upcoming 6 months, in the hopes of getting something worthwhile accomplished by year's end. At the half-way mark of any cycle you are given a choice ~ an opportunity to choose differently based on the experiences and information you've gathered thus far. So, how is 2010 shaping up for you? (Can you believe it is half over already?) Are you moving in the direction you want to be moving in? *NOTE* Summer and Winter Solstices are potent times of the year every year, they fall in Cancer / Capricorn every year, however, 2009-2011 also brings the Cancer/Capricorn Eclipses. Your frame of reference for this Cycle will be 1988-1992 and 1998-2002. It is highly useful to work the Gemini/Sag Lunar and Solar energies each year, even more vital at this time.

Gemini energy brings to mind: change, duality, choice(s) to make, fork in the road or crossroads, and of course, transition. Gemini is ruled by Mercury, which moves along side the Sun in its travels through the sky so it is easiest to catch a glimpse of Mercury during dusk and dawn, when the Sun's light is coming or going. These are the two times a day also often recommended for meditation as the veils are thinner and COMMUNICATION is easier between the visible and invisible realms. Additionally, dusk and dawn also represent that potent in-between stage that transition represents. We stand at this zero-point of possibilities.

Transition originally meant "going across or over" ... as in changing from one state of form or being to another. What is powerful about this is not in the 'being here or there', but in being PRESENT wherever you are. If you are consciously participating in life, then this is a potent time for you. However, if you are overwhelmed and your systems are on overload, you are going to short-circuit and most likely have to go down, before you can go back up and function effectively.

The main dangers in this life
are the people who want to chang
everything ... or nothing.
