Gemini—a Line of Light Beams and Interplay

RisaNewSSun enters Gemini Thursday evening. This week preparations are undertaken by the New Group of World Servers for the Gemini Full moon, next Thursday, May 27, the third most important full moon of the year. Gemini, often playful and happy, also displays duality (Castor & Pollux) in all its form. Gemini is the “light of interplay,” a line of light beams revealing all that opposes.
Gemini teaches us about duality, the relationship between two things. Gemini tells us that form and matter consists of this duality and relationship. If we think upon these words realizing Gemini people (Sun, Moon, Rising, Mars, Ascendant, etc.) display these characteristics, we better understand Gemini tasks and purposes in our lives. Humanity experiences Gemini behaviors and characteristics during the month of Gemini each year.
Gemini receives and distributes Ray 2 (Love/Wisdom) from a star in the Big Bear (and from Sirius). When the fact of duality is fully understood (and accepted), love and wisdom result. Gemini works with Mercury (Ray 4, Harmony Through Conflict). Both are the sign and planet of relatedness. Gemini and Mercury link, correlate and connect two things, introduce two people or events and then disappear. Their work of relating being complete, they move onto the next area of life needing connectivity. Gemini and Mercury are with us one moment, gone the next. They are like butterflies in a field. We can’t catch them. They build the Antakarana, the Rainbow Bridge, between Spirit and matter. Esoteric Astrology as News for the week of May 20–May 26, 2010 For Sun and Rising Signs

ariesAries-March 21–April 20
Are you unusually hungry and have your appetites for creative work increased? Are you searching for enjoyment? Self-expression coming forth as creative, passionate and entertaining is how you’re to be in the world now. Careful though. Others may compete with your brightness. Let them win. You know you’re the first and the best. Keep creating while playing.

taurusTaurus
April 21–May 21
Your work always reflects your deepest values as you attempt to resolve financial problems and create an informed and secure future for everyone. You keep saying, “We must safeguard the food supply.” You’re correct. You know we must tend to the lives of many generations to come, beginning now. Of all the signs you’re the most composed and prepared. Rest more. Be aware that you’re communicating dual realities

geminiGemini
May 22–June 20
The Gemini Sun is illuminating you from within. A golden light emanates from your eyes and heart. The potential for carrying and radiating love/wisdom rests in your heart. During this time it begins to emerge. Many are puzzled by you wondering how you are different than others. Your personality light dims as your Soul light brightens. You’re the twins. Study and communicate with Castor & Pollux.

cancerCancer
June 21–July 20
Working with finances and resources becomes exciting when you realize you want to use all that you have to create a sustainable and ecological path for your family as a template for all of humanity. Many will look to you for information as more world changes begin. One such preparation is seed saving. Teach others about this and share your seeds. This is one of the most important of nurturing gifts—seed saving.

leoLeo
July 21–August 22
You must be busy with this and that, here and there and everywhere. It’s good to project yourself and participate in various activities so others can recognize and appreciate you. This helps develop a newer self-identity. It’s also good if you facilitate meetings, group discussions, and community matters. You always have leadership qualities but now they are truly seen and your ideas can be applied. However, quietly remain humble.

virgoVirgo
August 23–September 22
Mercury (your planet) is moving slowly forward alongside your past and future (nodes) as your mind assesses what achievements you must accomplish in the coming months. You are very busy working behind the scenes doing research perhaps or tending to the ill and weary or reading books on religion or seeking respite and seclusion in water gardens. Plant dill, borage, burdock and roses and create another fountain.

libraLibra
September 23–October 22
The Sun is beginning to highlight your house of travel and I wonder if you’re somewhere far away. I hope wherever you are there is art and culture. Hopefully you have access to a spa because you need care, tending and time away from work where you push yourself beyond limits. A change will occur in relationships in the coming months. Prepare yourself to have what you want and need. This requires self-definition.

scorpioScorpio
October 23–November 21
You will assume more work responsibilities in your world. This will create a new recognition concerning your specific gifts and abilities. There’s a kindness to what will occur between the world and you, a culmination of your ambitions and achievements. As more work is required in the public, do not shy away. Stand with grace and equanimity and use Right Speech. These will be recognized by others.

saggSagittarius
November 22–December 20
Work has been very busy and you’ve been very disciplined. It called for all your creative endeavors. Now you’ll tend to your past relationship with money. Don’t worry. This will reveal itself very soon. Are you thinking of far away places, people, things, events? You long for something from the past that held you in love and care. Let this sway you as long as it can. You’ll assess, discriminate and then decide. In time there will be ease.

capricornCapricorn
December 21–January 20
Be a bit more intimate with the one(s) you love. Be aware of this passage of time and have the intention to be closer and kinder to family, partner and loved ones. Many benefits will emerge from this. Always with contact, more love is released. This is nourishing for you as you need nourishment now, not just from foods but from the love (pink stuff like cotton candy emerging from hearts) around you. But you must make the first contact.

aquariusAquarius
January 21–February 18
The Sun illuminates your house of fun, pleasure, love affairs, children and creativity. Which one(s) belong to you? If you’re an artist, this is a time to be in your studio or your computer creating inspired and brilliant works. Balance both creativity and the pleasures attracting you. As everyone seeks your attention, needing you to love them, remember the children who also need you as well as the animal kingdom. It’s a very good time.

piscesPisces
February 19–March 20
You’re finding yourself accomplishing tasks and interacting with people from the past daily. You’ve been given an opportunity to fulfill certain dharmic tasks. As you perform your daily work, maintain a calm interior, practice mantrams (Ohm Mani Padme Hum) and know you must continue till the work that is yours to do is complete. It has taken years to come to this place in time and space. Your personality is resisting. However, your Soul brought you here.

Our Gifts - Fiery Sacrificial Lights to One Another

Wednesday is Christmas Eve, Hanukkah ends and the Moon is in Aquarius, calling for the new world to take shape at midnight. Thursday morning, the sun, at the Tropic of Capricorn, begins moving northward. The desire currents are stilled. A great benediction of spiritual force (Capricorn’s Rays 1, 3, 7) streams into Earth. Temple bells ring out. The heavens bend low; the Earth is lifted up to the Light. Angels and Archangels chant, “On Earth, peace, goodwill to all.” As these forces stream into the Earth they assume long swirling lines of light, in the likeness of the Madonna and Child. The holy child is born. Let our hearts be “impressed” with and hold this picture, especially because Christmas may be difficult this year. Christmas Day is void of course moon (v/c moon), which means we may feel somewhat disconnected from one another. It’s difficult to connect in a v/c moon. Try anyway. Mercury joins Pluto in Capricorn. Uh oh … we don’t bring up the past containing any dark and difficult issues. We are to attempt new ways of communicating—expressing aspirations and love for one another, replacing wounding, sadness, lostness, and hurts of the past. Play soothing music, pray together, have the intention for peace, harmony and goodwill. Don’t be surprised if things feel out of control and/or arguments arise. We remember, before a new harmony emerges, chaos and crisis come first to clear the air. We are to be the harmonizers. Christmas evening is more harmonious, less difficult, more of what Christmas should be— radiations of love, sharing, kindness, compassion and care. Sunday, Feast Day of the Holy Family, is surprising. Wednesday is New Year’s Eve, the last day of 2014. Taurus moon, a stabilizing energy, ushers in the New Year. Happy New Year, everyone! Peace to everyone. Let us realize we are gifts radiating diamond light to one another. Living sacrificial flames!

Best Bites of 2014

A look back at the year in good taste

 

What downtown business is good for both one-stop shopping and last-minute gifts?

The Homeless Garden Project store. Because it is a community effort and has really useful and beautiful things, and allows you to connect with a lot of folks who are doing great work in Santa Cruz. Miriam Greenberg, Santa Cruz, UCSC Professor

 

Vino Tabi Winery

One of Santa Cruz’s most happening areas to go wine tasting is in the westside’s Swift Street Courtyard complex. Ever since a group of about a dozen wineries got together and formed Surf City Vintners (SCV), the place has been a hive of activity, and a wine-tasting mecca. Adding to the mix is the lively Santa Cruz Mountain Brewing beer company—making Swift Street Courtyard a perfect spot for a glass of wine or a pitcher of ale.
