Gemini—Directing the Wind

RisaNewSThursday and Friday are the last days of Taurus—Light that transforms and uplifts. Saturday morning Sun enters Gemini—the light of interplay, expressing duality (personality level), later, synthesis (Soul level).
Each month a different light (and different task) plays upon Earth. The New Group of World Servers, studying the Ancient Wisdom teachings, using Esoteric Astrology, understands the different lights and tasks to be accomplished. While the task of Taurus is to enlighten and illuminate the mind (Buddha’s Work), Gemini’s work is, by displaying duality, to bring forth the noble wisdom of the Buddha and the Love anchored on Earth 2,000 years ago by the Great World Teacher. Gemini has a Great Work to do.
Each month, as we struggle to live within the different lights and tasks falling to earth, we each become the sign the Sun is receiving and distributing. Soon we will all become Geminis.
Geminis are often seen as butterflies, drifting, flower to flower, in meadows of color. Never alighting anywhere for long, they quickly (Mercury) gather honey (information) from here and there. Eventually they fly away to other fields, experiences, adventures (the mind of Gemini). Gemini is about gathering information, distributing it. Gemini is a light beam, revealing oppositions, personifying the duality basic within manifestation (our world), reflecting the relationship between spirit and form. Gemini is the conscious light of relationship. Gemini relates, if even for a moment. Gemini, with Mercury, builds the Antakarana, the Rainbow Bridge. At first they polarize (their personality work to do). Then they synthesize (their Soul work). At first they’re tossed by the wind (air, Mercury), then they circulate the wind. Finally Gemini “directs” the wind. The Rainbow Bridge is built.

Esoteric Astrology as News for the week of May 19–25, 2011 For Sun and Rising Signs

ariesAries-March 21–April 20
The month ahead sees you as a hard worker, working toward and within your values. If you don’t actually know your values, then observe yourself—actions, focus, communication. Note you’re slower than usual, caring for what you love (and value) with extra care. You see your ambition, the acquiring of possessions, your impatience or impulsiveness. Your senses are more alive. You eat more. You’ve become a lovely Taurus.

taurusTaurus
April 21–May 21
Aries is stealing your thunder, your Vulcan volcanic ability to make gold out of iron. You have so many abilities, you can share a few, yes? Notice your reactions to events and people. You’re more energetic, active, forceful and even, at times, aggressive (shocking!). For a moment or two it’s OK for you to be overly assertive. Rarely are you this way. However, as Aries has become Taurus, you’ve become a very interesting Aries.

geminiGemini
May 22–June 20
You’ve become more of a Pisces. Meaning? More sensitive, more reluctant to push the river, a sense that confidence has taken a different path. You’re working more in secret, can be blamed for things you didn’t do, there are stronger instincts and intuition that the past is somehow merging with the present and everything becomes more private. Dreams (day and night) appear, imagination is vitally creative. Music (more of it), please.

cancerCancer
June 21–July 20
It’s most important to think about cooperation and how you impact a group. With all your emerging thoughts and ideas, you may be inclined to talk louder over others, attempt to dominate everyone and everything. It’s best to work with team effort toward a humanitarian goal. It’s also important to create daily agendas, schedules, plans and goals. They will be your context and protection.

leoLeo
July 21–August 22
You are the leader, the one everyone looks to, hopes to be, learns from, emulates. (Be grateful.) Your accomplishments are recognized. This pleases you. I have written before that for a Leo to evolve, others must see, recognize and praise their efforts, gifts, abilities. Praise is how (especially) Leos can more fully identify themselves as creative, saying, “I AM because I create (and you see it).” All of this occurs.

virgoVirgo
August 23–September 22
Boldness overtakes you, a hunger for expansion, adventure, a restlessness that won’t accept no for an answer. Your mind and heart do need expansion and actually new experiences. All the energy you’re feeling will propel you into travel, new studies, new interests, new books along with overt opinions leading to disagreements and arguments. Stay away from anything illegal. Read and run a lot.

libraLibra
September 23–October 22
Careful with projecting anger and suppressed passion (from long ago to present) toward others, especially ones close to your heart. You may be unaware of this. The issues are joint money and resources, conflicts and crisis concerning different values. You can no longer suffer differences and must move out (or act) on your own. This is both subtle and overt. Careful of consequences. Begin with knowing your true needs. Then love them more.

scorpioScorpio
October 23–November 21
Everything may become challenging, especially interactions with professionals or intimates. Should you encounter conflict, it’s a reflection of your internal conflicts. This is how and why conflicts occur. Conflict contains information. If you struggle long enough, a new level of harmony emerges. Be as dynamic and lively as possible. Everything will be conflictual, then it resolves, then there’s rapprochement. Help someone in the meantime.

saggSagittarius
November 22–December 20
Interesting new (more) energy is available affecting daily routines, work schedules, workloads. When not working focus on health—exercise, diet, walking, running, yoga, etc. You must have a daily regime of physical activity or depression, anger, frustration, restlessness, mental and emotional distortions result. It may be difficult working with others. Harmony slips out of your work world. Be aware of this. Don’t dispute anything.

capricornCapricorn
December 21–January 20
Questions. Do you have lots of energy with an equal non-desire for self-discipline? Are you seeking expressions (new ones) of creativity with children and family? Tend to loved ones, especially your partner (first). The result will be more play, pleasure, more sleep. You’re not allowed to gamble. Do you need a new couch? Is your home comfortable? Or does it need more comfort? You need comfort, don’t you?

aquariusAquarius
January 21–February 18
Note how you feel more instinctive, protective and possibly the need for security. Are events occurring concerning family, home, homemaking, repairs? Are you thinking about family matters? Are you far away? Moodiness, restlessness occurs along with possible family conflicts. If previous issues from the past emerge, it’s time to talk with someone about them. Perhaps you’re asking, “Where is my home?” Where is it?


piscesPisces
February 19–March 20
Work on mental tasks daily slowly. This creates more efficiency. Consider professional needs. It's soon time to tell everyone of your ideas, plans, projections, wants, needs. Communications may become tense, heated, with disagreements. Allow this to occur, step back, observe impatience and/or impulsiveness. This is Mars at work. Pushing things forward. Tend to hands and feet with care. Sew and paint. Use your mind to make order. Neptune has entered Pisces.

Gemini Sun, Pentecost, Shavuot—Enlightenment and Gladness

As the sun enters Gemini on Sunday, sign of speaking, communication, thinking, inter-relations, writing and understanding languages, the feast days of Pentecost & Shavuot (Catholic and Jewish festivals) occur. During Pentecost’s 50 days after Easter, tongues of fire appear above the heads of the disciples, providing them with the ability to understand all languages and all feelings hidden in the minds and hearts of humanity. It’s recorded that Pentecost began with a loud noise, which happened in an upper room (signifying the mind). The Christ (World Teacher) told his disciples (after his ascension) when encountering a man at a well carrying a water pot (signs for Age of Aquarius) to follow him to an upper room. There, the Holy Spirit (Ray 3 of Divine Intelligence) would overshadow them, expand their minds, give them courage and enable them to teach throughout the world, speaking all languages and thus able to minister to the true needs of a “seeking” humanity. Pentecost (50 days, pentagram, Ray 5, Venus, concrete and scientific knowledge, the Ray of Aquarius) sounds dramatic, impressive and scary: The loud noise, a thunderous rush of wind and then “tongues of fire” above the heads of each disciple (men and women). Fire has purpose. It purifies, disintegrates, purges, transforms and liberates (frees) us from the past. This was the Holy Spirit (Ray 3, love and wisdom) being received by the disciples, so they would teach in the world and inform humanity of the Messiah (Christ), who initiated the new age (Pisces) and gave humanity the new law (adding to the 10 Commandments of the Aries Age) to Love (Ray 2) one another. Note: Gemini is also Ray 2. Shavuot is the Jewish Festival of Gladness, the First Fruits Festival celebrating the giving of the 10 Commandments to Moses as the Aries Age was initiated. Thus, we have two developmental stages here, Jewish festival of the Old Testament. Pentecost of the New Testament. We have gladness, integrating both.
