Happy Gemini Season!

♊️☉ The Sun entered the sign of the twins over this past weekend marking the FINAL act of Spring.

Gemini Season by Mackenzie Greer

When the Sun transits through Gemini, we become imbued with the desire to explore our personal curiosities and our local social scenes. This sign is fast, mentally active, and looking to have a little fun. Gemini is great at piecing together little bits of information, but can often struggle with getting to the heart of the matter or staying focused. You can notice a tendency to vacillate during the sun’s stay in this sign - which isn't always a bad thing! Both your mind AND body may be wanting to wander, sometimes in separate directions, to unexplored territory. For our workaholics out there - this should be invited and not totally shunned! Think of the new inspiration you can gain from getting out.

♊️✨Gemini is a MUTABLE sign. The mutables are responsible for deconstructing and readapting the season for whats coming up. Aries brought it in, Taurus held it down, Gemini takes it apart! Think of what you want to consciously leave behind in these waning weeks of Spring, for this 1st quarter of the cycle is coming to a close and we need to be able to part with some unnecessary baggage. 

♊️💨 Gemini is an AIR sign - meaning it’s main focus is on the intake of information. They relate to the world through their speech and thought. Air is detached from the heavy emotions of water, the over-enthusiasm of fire, and the mundane practicality of earth. Air is floating above it all trying to gain objectivity - it’s cerebral, logical, social, communicative, and often perceived as aloof. Air signs can struggle with intimacy because of their personal need to enrich themselves through contact with tons of different people. Gemini is often flitting about from one flower to the next, trying to get a taste of everything but not settling on one. Get out and socialize if you feel like you’ve been cooped up - everyone will be feeling a bit more chatty and have the need to explore their local neighborhood. Teaching, learning, and schooling are also under it’s rulership. It’s a great time to explore a class in something you’ve always been interested in, or maybe hone your writing skills (if your attention span will allow!) 

☽ We also have an upcoming New Moon at 4°  Gemini on May 25th! The days surrounding this new moon are ideal for setting intentions for the upcoming month of June. Focus on all of this Gemini stuff! What do you want to learn? Say? Write? Where do you want to go? It’s time to say goodbye to the trials & tribulations of Spring and come into summer with a refocused and refreshed plan for yourself.

Scorpio Full Moon: An Emotional Spotlight

Phoenix Rising: Full Moon In Scorpio

Scorpio is a sign that seeks to plunge past superficial encounters. It feels far more comfortable cultivating intense emotional experiences in its day to day than sitting around indulging in crowd pleasing small talk. It wants to get to the heart and soul of the matter, sleeping deep beneath the earth. This is why Scorpio is often associated with psychotherapy, mystery, and investigative research - because its natural mode of operation is to dig deep and get its hands dirty. 

✨🌕 Transformation is a word that often gets tagged onto Scorpio in modern astrology to deal with its classic involvement with straight up death. Death is an incredibly hard concept for our delicate human egos to accept, so when we can lightly label it “transformation” instead, we find it a bit easier to swallow. Ultimately, death & transformation are involved with this sign - for Scorpio often faces many phoenix-like experiences, where it rises from the firey ashes of what it once was to be born again. 

Scorpio gets its reputation for being one of the most sexual signs of the zodiac and this is due mostly to “the ego death” desired when involved in the act. Scorpio by nature wants to escape the chains of it’s own ego, it wants to move beyond itself. When two souls merge into one through sex, they both experience a death of their own ego by merging together in that moment. This is the level of emotional intensity that Scorpio seeks out. Scorpio doesn’t want to have sex just for the sake of sex, that’s more taurus (sensually-based), Scorpio want’s to have sex to literally transcend the earth.

I’m giving you this run down of the typical Scorpionic personality so you have a better idea of how to work with the natural energy of this full moon today. You may see themes mentioned above surfacing in your own life. There may be a desire to investigate your own psyche, root out other people’s problems, or go below the surface in one way or another. You may long to feel heightened feelings of ecstasy or escape, and can easily be swayed to drinking and drugs to find that sense of elevation. Or maybe you just need a good ol’ fashion lay to get you through your day haha! Whatever it is you’re experiencing, it’s likely asking to be examined under the moody, brood gleaming beams of this Scorpio full moon.

Nodal Shift: New Focus & Release

The nodes shift signs....

Nodal Shift Atro Report

💫 ♌️ / ♒️ Today the north & south node of the Moon are shifting into a new set of signs, marking a pivotal shift in everyones personal focus for the next year and a half. The nodes are super sensitive points, not real bodies- that travel backwards on an axis through the zodiac. The north node is considered a point of intake and the south node one of release. The north node represents an area of life where our souls are longing to ingest and learn more information, where we're striving towards something new to incorporate. The south node represents an area where we’ve become too dependent and cling to past experiences out of safety.

🌀 ♍️ / ♓️ Since November 2015, the nodes have been traveling through everyone’s Virgo/Pisces house, doling out some painful lessons on surrender and service. The north node (point of intake) has been in Virgo- we may have taken new steps in getting organized in our day to day tasks, or learned about service for the simple sake of others. The south node (point of release) was in Pisces- where we’ve been working on letting go of feelings of self-victimization and excessive self sacrifice, learning where to draw the line of helping another and helping oneself. 

🔥 ♌️ / 💨 ♒️ The nodes take their very first step into the Leo/Aquarius axis today, into a whole new part of your chart, where they will remain until late 2018. The north node will now reside in Leo- ushering forth a desire for fun, creativity, romance, and a need to regain self-love after a rather self-critical time in Virgo. Playing and expression of ones true self will become crucial. The south node will enter into Aquarius, saying it’s time to release notions of emotional detachment, inflexibility, and the unnecessary lengths we go to for apparent non-conformity.

🌕 ♏️ The full moon in Scorpio arrives tomorrow, the evening of May 10th, casting a palpable moodiness in the air. It will be a crucial time to find a way to purge some of our uglier and lodged emotions- some of us will drink n' drug with our pals, some will sweat it all out at the gym, or some will brood alone writing dark poems by candlelight lol. Full moon post up tomorrow!

May Astro Report Part 1: A Self-Focused & Independent Fire Goddess of a Month

Happy May everyone! Yesterday marked the half way point of Spring, meaning were inching ever closer to Summer. April was one for the books, with retrogrades firing off left and right and planets tied up in conflict. Much of May will be spent trying to re-organize the things that fell apart before us, while also attempting to usher in a new level of stability and higher understanding of the events that conspired for us in April. 

May Astrology Report

♀  May starts off hot with a freshly entered Venus in Aries. She’s spending an unusual amount of time in Aries this year thanks to her recent retrograde. Venus was in Aries for the majority of Feb & March - so recall your feelings regarding relationship, finances, beauty and art around then - and expect for those themes to be making a reappearance. This time around the story will be different though, because the retrograde showed us quite clearly what needed changing and releasing. We were asked to review our most intimate relationships and long held values to see what still applies to us and what felt obsolete. 

Now that she’s in direct motion, we’re moving forward with the narrative. Venus (love, relationship & harmony) in Aries (me, myself & i) is an aggressively self-focused and independent fire goddess. She has a real bite to her in this sign. The women’s march took place back when Venus was in Aries. It’s a time where women demand the respect and recognition they deserve. Everyone’s a bit more irritated, self interested and faster to quarrel. Women aren’t to be messed right now. 

☿ Mercury (communication, information, & transportation) is also dwindling in Aries, and stations to go direct on May 3rd. Rebellious and invigorating new ideas and messages are to be expected for the first half of the month, since paused Mercury is conjunct (merged with) Uranus (rebellion, explosions, & disruptions) in the sky. This is a good time to explore the firey and unconventional ideas that come up. Mental energies and nervous systems are heightened by this conjunction, leading people towards erratic thoughts & actions. People in your life (or you) can communicate new and unexpected things at this time in a brash, unorthodox fashion.

New Moon In Taurus | Craving Something New? A Steady & Nurturing Environment Comes

☉☽ ♉️ Earlier this morning, the birth of a brand new lunar cycle came to life at 6° Taurus. New moons are always the right time for tackling new endeavors and for intention setting. It is the new seed being planted in the deep dark heart of the earth - and given the right amount of positive reinforcement, we can expect this seed to ultimately flourish. Taurus is an earth sign and fixed in it’s nature - which means it’s less interested in fresh starts and finishing touches, but invested in steady maintenance. This is where Taurus gets its reputation for often being a stabilizing and practical influence.

Cumberland Island by Zodiac Mack

♈️ -> ♉️ Aries represents the very beginning of Spring - where the weather is tumultuous, hot one day and wet and cold the next. We crave something new for ourselves and we launch out, perhaps not all that prepared to go get it. Thus, when Taurus season arrives, we require the fixed and focused energy that the sign brings in order to harness the exciting initiative that was sparked by Aries. Taurus rules over the part of Spring that is “fixed”. It works slowly but effectively to steady the environment, nurturing the soil of the earth with rain to call forth the flowers. April (aries) showers bring May (taurus) flowers.

♀ Most of us were really feeling those April showers, perhaps almost as if at any moment we may slip and drift even further downstream in them. Venus, the relationship planet, had dipped back into oceanic Pisces for most of the month, drenching us in emotion and we finally get to crawl back out onto shore as of Friday the 28th, when she re-enters Aries for yet another go. Lest ye forget, Venus in Aries is one pissed off scored wielding warrior goddess. Aries is the sign of Venus’ detriment because she becomes too self focused, thus confusing the true nature of Venus which is to harmonize and integrate everyone’s needs. It’s likely that we’ll be hearing more about women once again retaliating against the patriarchy in the news, or on a more personal level we will be asking ourselves “are MY needs getting met in my relationship?"
