Sunday's Solar Eclipse in Gemini recharges your mind

Need to reboot your brains?  Today at 4:48 PM, PDT, you can click on “Shut Down and Restart” during the New Moon Solar Eclipse* in Gemini as it passes over northern California.  

The Moon briefly blocks the intense solar-power willfulness of the Sun, allowing a respite in time for your rational mind to update and refresh.  

This week we travel through the house that Gemini built.  It’s a house of words and wit.

The Force of being curious is with you.
The week of May 20, 2012

Aries ♈ (March 20-April 19)
The Gemini New Moon Solar Eclipse will inspire your inventive imagination.  At its peak (Sunday at 4:48 PM, PDT) solar-powered nervous energy is interrupted.  This lull lets your thoughts catch up with your actions--a rarity for you!  Options that you’d never thought of before will occur to you beginning Thursday when Mental Mercury starts a two week stay in Gemini.  The combo of fire and air fuels your quick-wittedness.  It’s an excellent time for tasks that require heightened mental acuity in communicating your ideas.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Ideas and messages will be flying around your head like a tornado this week.  Some will land with clarity, but most will be just too flighty for your tastes.  Use Sunday’s New Moon eclipse to break the spell of needing more and more reassurance that your world is secure.  Midweek you get some homey comforts from the Cancer Moon, and the sense that through forgiveness your mind can rest in love.  You need to resist this week’s temptation to multi-tasking and maintain your down-to-earth focus.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)
This is your week! to ride the waves of your intellectual powers. Sunday is your personal new beginning.  Feelings run strong all week.  Watch Tuesday through the lens of love as the Gemini snuggles up to Venus 2:24 PM, PDT.  Your relationships will work smoothly because your open heart radiates love and you welcome others into your world.  Later you will get a helpful shot of common sense that turns this energy into shrewd business acumen.  Thursday the messenger planet gets blown into Gemini for two weeks of mental shapeshifting--stay light on your feet!

Cancer (June 21-July 21)
Sunday’s New Moon eclipse is a great time for you to stop and put the past behind you.  If there’s something unspoken, take care of it quickly and move on.  Your faith is renewed on Wednesday when you lighten up about that famous Cancer need for security.  Worry and doubt may tempt you into seriousness, so turn to your spiritual powers of renewal.  The end of the week is loaded with combustible words--keep your cool.

Leo (July 22-August 22)
Sunday’s burst of energy from the quick-witted Gemini New Moon resets your mind, body and spirit into one working whole.  Fuel for new ideas keeps pouring in all week.  Tuesday your words will be infused with kindness and love, and your head for business has rarely been so clear.  Thursday morning starts a two week period favorable for negotiations and contracts, both in your office and in your personal relationships.  Your week ends with a passionate boost of feelings when the Moon catches fire in Leo Friday at 3:12 PM, PDT.  Brains on fire!

Virgo (August 23-September 22)
Wednesday you’re called to forgive, both yourself and others.  Your famous analytical mind gets an infusion of imagination--imagine your life without criticism of any kind!  The midweek Moon in home-sweet-home Cancer softens your drive to organize absolutely everything and everybody--you relax.  Don’t let all the Gemini energy tempt you to multi-tasking, especially after Thursday when Messenger Mercury begins a two week stay in Gemini, quickening the mental pace to flight of ideas.  Others will need your common sense!

Libra (September 23-October 22)
Your relationships get a reset on Sunday when the vitality of the new Gemini Moon and Sun create a harmonic balance (I do not use that word lightly, dear Libra!).  You have the chance to get in sync with mind and heart to produce a certainty about what you truly want in life.  Watch Tuesday for a beautiful burst of love and good business sense.  Your organizational skills are at an all time high!  Thursday morning wakes you up with ingenious ideas--the next two weeks is very favorable for communicating with your heightened quick-wit.  

Scorpio ♏  (October 23-November 21)
Sunday’s Gemini eclipse may stir some anxiety in you.  You can handle the surge of chatterbox messages by being your famously discriminating self.  Take what you need and leave many ideas on the cutting room floor.  Wednesday brings you emotional relief in the calming waters of Cancer’s home sweet home.  Step out of the sea of chaos and use your heightened spirituality to do the thing that is hardest for you--let go and forgive.

Sagittarius (November 22-December 20)
Wow, the Gemini New Moon eclipse on Sunday will be a perfect time for you to touch the higher realms, where you are most at home.  If you can slow down, and travel in your mind, you’ll be able to integrate mind, body and spirit as never before.  Grab the impetus to accomplish three things at once beginning Thursday when Mental Mercury starts a two week stay in the intellectual air of Gemini.  You’ll be flooded with new ideas, and your job is sorting the wheat from the chaff.  Follow your intuition.

Capricorn (December 21-January 19)
Well, dear Capricorn, Sunday’s New Moon eclipse helps you reboot and assimilate the load of new ideas about Pluto’s pull to transform your whole life by June 24th!  Easy does it.  Use that famous Capricorn step-by-step surefooted action to take the whirl out of whirlwind. Gemini is generating loads of multi-tasking, flight-of-ideas activity all week--especially after Thursday when Messenger Mercury begins a two week stay in the ivory tower, intellectual skies of Gemini.  You may need to carry the message that achieving your goals and ambitions only works one step at a time.

Aquarius (January 20-February 17)
Use Sunday’s eclipse to reboot your vision of the world around you.  This week is loaded with messages and new ideas.  Tuesday you continue to follow the yellow brick road that the Gemini Moon has been leading you on, and the goddess of love shows up throwing roses at your feet.  Your mind is very clear--take notes.  Especially after Thursday when Messenger Mercury flies into the intellectual ivory tower of Gemini, where, for the next two weeks,  he’ll read a lot of books about how to do juggle three things at once!  You’ll need deep breathing exercises, but you’re one of the few who can keep up this pace.  

Pisces ♓  (February 18-March 19)
Sunday’s solar eclipse in the intellectual skies of Gemini may generate some nervous tension unless you slow down the flight of ideas to a reasonable pace by meditation.  You’ll have an easier time assimilating the load of new ideas when your emotions get a healing balm from the security conscious Cancer Moon on Wednesday (4:32 AM. PDT).  Avoid the worry and doubt vibes by consciously practicing forgiveness--especially for yourself.  You can turn crisis into opportunity if you resist the urge to do too many things at once (Gemini’s busy multi-tasking!).  The world needs your calm compassion!

*The maximum visibility in the San Francisco Bay Area of the Moon passing in front of the Sun occurs at 6:33 PM.
