Shifting Gears: Sun in Gemini, Full Moon in Sagittarius, Mercury Direct

Full Moon blastoff

The Sun moves from fixed, practical, realistic Taurus this morning into curious, mutable Gemini, shifting your focus from the physical world to the mental body and all that goes with it.

To amplify the energy of this shift, we have a Full Moon in Sagittarius (the 1st of two in Sagittarius) on Sat, May 21st at 5:14pm EDT. This Full Moon is at 1º Sag – and we’ll have another Full Moon at 29º Sag on June 20th.

Gemini rules information, all forms of communication, community and networking. It can’t receive too much information, as it’s endlessly curious and loves being in the loop, knowing what’s what and where to find it. Gemini rules social media and the connections between us. (Guess who is Sun in Gemini? Donald Trump – Mr. Communication :)).

Sagittarius rules Higher Truth, beliefs, other cultures, wisdom, foreign travel, religion, ethics, morals, ideals and convictions. It takes information and filters it through the Higher Mind to create meaning.

So the Gemini-Sagittarius axis challenges you to open your mind when making meaning of the information you receive – and not to get stuck in a belief system that’s so rigid you’re closed to new information (different views).

Warrior Mars has backed up beside the Moon tomorrow, bringing a level of aggression and/or frustration to the already heightened emotional energy of the Full Moon, so be mindful to move gently and “be Spock” rather than being reactive if something comes at you – or comes up from within you (anger). Easy does it, for your sake and others :))

The Full Moon is a time of blossoming or when things come to Light – but because we have two Full Moons in the same sign, it’s likely that something is in process that won’t come to fruition until the second Full Moon occurs in June.

Plus, we’re still in Mars Retrograde (until late June), so continue to reassess and revise anything that isn’t working for you. Diligence and an optimistic outlook will serve you well during this time. Pay attention to how life unfolds for you and continue to course correct as needed, while holding the intention for what you want to create.

Mercury FallonMercury (Ruler of Gemini) stations to turn Direct on Sunday. Watch for new information to arrive – be open and flexible so you can adapt as needed to plans and decisions made from an earlier perspective.

It’s easy to become scattered with all the Gemini info/ideas flying around, and/or by trying to do everything at once once Mercury is Direct, so prioritize and just do the next right thing. Make a list and cross items off when done.

It will take much of the week for Mercury to get up to speed, so be patient and don’t make life more complicated than it already is. Keep it simple. Be optimistic (Sagittarius :)) and expect a positive outcome. Be spacious and give yourself extra time.

Your attitude will determine your experience. Find inspiration to stay upbeat and resist judgment and remember, it’s more important than ever to release the fear and create more love! 

**** We still have MAJOR Moon Void of Course periods this week***, which can derail intended outcomes and productivity – and are optimal times to access your creativity, spiritual pursuits, routines or leisure activities. Be aware and pay attention.
