Titania’s Fortune Cards

Playing around with the idea of 1 card reading.  Distilled, concise.
Card on left represents Gemini energies surrounding us, card on right is the message from spirit at the bottom of the deck.  The crux of the sitch.  Intention: to direct us all towards the most benevolent outcome.

Rider Good news on the way, stagnant situations stirred up, a lucky card.
Foxneutral card; a call for being enigmatic, sly and cunning

Stone in carved wooden hand is Azurite.
Azurite is a copper carbonate mineral, monoclinic, often found in botryoidal forms.  It carries the frequency of the Ajna chakra (third eye).  Azurite increases intuition, insight, psychic awareness and dream visions.  It assists with the assimilation and retention of new information, deriving the truth behind hidden motives of ego – based actions.  Increases objectivity and integration of mental and spiritual energies

Now for the astro…

Gemini Venus Rx trine Saturn Rx in (Venus -ruled) Libra both trine Neptune in Pisces….shhhh…it’s a secret….keep it close to the vest, whatever you are thinking, doing or thinking of doing.  Let it percolate, simmer and stew awhile.

This Venus retrograde harkens back to the year 2004 echoes of that time will resurface during this Venus retrograde period.  

It occurs to me ~ Mercury and Saturn (eardrum, bones) rule hearing.
Venus Rx in (Mercury ruled) Gem, trine Saturn Rx in (Mercury ruled) Virgo trine Neptune.

Echoes, or reverb (Mercury + Neptune) of Venusian sounds from 2004. 

Good thing we have solid earth coming up to bat – foggy, Neptunian woo woo is all over the playing field.  Anytime now I expect Shoeless Joe will be popping out of the cornfield of dreams, lol.  What up Joe ?  Up for some Pitch & catch ?

Chiron opposite Mars in Virgo…healing from the past soOo Field of Dreams.

I used to live in Iowa, meditated with the Maharishi Mahesh Yogis, saw the American Gothic house, ate Rosanne Barr’s loose meat burgers, saw the big cornfield in the sky.  It’s near the Ertl factory where my Star Trek Enterprise model ship came from, and if you head west on I-80 you’ll see the Big Boy sculptures – the whole family – on the north side of the road somewhere around Des Moines.  Iowans are so practical, they all  seem earth sign to me.  Excessively normal.  Grounded.  No muss, no fuss.  Speaking of which….

Sweet sensate Taurus Moon is coming up to form a grand trine with Mars in Virgo and Pluto Rx in Capricorn at 9 degrees.  Can you feel the earth energy growing ?
I do.

Primal dark moon energy full of quiet thoughts and rest.

Prepare for the eclipse moon.
Feed the senses moon.
Blessed, bliss out zen Toro moon.
A soft place to fall…

blessed be~

(5 months is an extra long stay)
Sun into Gemini Sunday 20th
Rare Occultation of Venus on June 5

Good thing Gem energy multi-tasks well, we will need all Gem hands on deck ! 
Know how to tell when a Gemini is freaking on information overload ? 
hands are in the air waving around, lol. stop talking back away slowly….

Annular Solar Eclipse is at 0 degrees Gemini – Mercury is Lord of the Eclipse.
Solar Eclipses involve identity, ego, ambition, leadership, co-operation.
Awareness.
Versatility in communication is on the table for this eclipse.

This is a New Moon – a time for beginnings and fresh starts, growing upward.  New Moon feels spontaneous, filled with possibilities, intuition and instincts rule while moonlight is dim.
*Clean the corners, toss items, do rituals for closing, clearing stagnant energies, light candles and smudge in preparation for new moon.

Energies in play at new moon will culminate at the next full moon.
The next full moon is the Partial Lunar eclipse June 4 in Sagittarius.

South Node of Destiny accompanies this annular eclipse, so get ready to bob and weave with the past – adaptation, improvisation.

Thinking, learning talking, writing, siblings, neighbors, short journeys are some of the energies in motion with this eclipse.

Pay attention to what is happening in your life in the days prior to the eclipse to determine what energies are being activated in your life.  Eclipses are often triggered before the actual eclipse and the energies continue to play out over weeks or months afterward as other planets move over the eclipse point.

Early August will reveal more internal struggles regarding this eclipse energy and early November will reveal the growth via confrontation with others.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Where is the Gemini house in your natal chart ?  
Kickstarting soon ! 

Keep in mind the mutables are feeling the squeeze : Virgo and Pisces by square (internal conflict surrounding new communication energies).

Sagittarius by opposition (juggling solutions and compromise with another, via you guessed, it  – communication).

Communication opportunities are presenting themselves in your Aries and Leo houses.

Juno is in this ballgame too…actively engaging in a tug of war across the wheel, and it is walking right beside the path into the future  via North Node.

Gemini talks, Sagittarius walks (rules thighs) this eclipse is like climbing the high dive ladder for the 1st time…0 degree eclipse…the next eclipse is Sagittarius totally going for the swan dive leap of faith…it is easier by the time we get there because we have higher visions incoming all month !  Jupiter is protective as well ~
 …  hmmm interesting … eclipse is exactly trine my natal Juno at zero Libra.

Something that strikes me is this is both a chart of reaping from former efforts and also giving back to people.  (SW quadrant) 

What we are actively sowing is exactly that : Work.
– changes and transformation re: work (Pluto in Cap)
– organizing, streamlining energetic efforts across the board (Mars in Virgo)
– shifting of balance re: work, status, career, health and routines (Saturn Rx in Virgo)

Money, love and creativity are all undergoing major overhaul at this eclipse. 

Venus Rx and Saturn Rx exact trine, both also loosely trine Neptune.
Time is money.  Money talks, BS walks.  Does anybody really know what time it is ?

Brakes are on while we re-think, renovate and re-purpose love, communication, partnership and work.  *Fun times* …I think I need another vacation. yeah ok. right. not gonna happen, ha.  Suck it up sweetheart. Welcome to Uranus square Pluto !

Jupiter is conjunct Lord of the Eclipse, and he’ll be Lord of the next Eclipse, this is a keep your eyes on the prize aspect – North Node will lead you ~> find your Sagittarius house and SEE your visionary goals !  Juno North Node carrot right. in. front. of. you.

This eclipse is giving me visuals of Contact: Ellie shaking in the seat of satellite dudes spaceship Good to Go !

Eclipse luminaries are square Neptune which opposes Mars ~
where the hell are we going ? !
Who knows…?…but we’ve got high hopes ! 
Leo is at eclipse MC, and it is time to get creative, people !  Make it work !
…and did I mention I just checked out 2 seasons of Spartacus – bit violent for me, but the tribal jewelry is to die for !   Horns, bones, leather and stone – yes !

Mars in 10 in the Mercury ruled house trine Pluto, fresh new ground is tilled and ready for planting new moon thought seeds for long – term growth. Be aware Gemini is a restless, changeable energy and it likes to switch it up.

For those of you asking about spell work at new moon – Gemini new moon is in flux, neutral and dual.  Not known for sticking and staying, but moreso for ideas, observing, being flexible and spells will reflect this.  If you are looking to work with Mercury, be aware it is trickster energy !

Lord of the Eclipse is quintile Chiron. 
Mercury heals.
Think, learn, teach, walk your talk and work the witty ways out of the square to Neptune, get real, get creative, put one foot in front of the other.  Just keep walking / swimming.
Do you speak whale ?  haha  I don’t, but I do speak toad and cat. lol.

Uranus in Aries wants it right the fuq now, and Pluto Rx in Cap says you will get it when I am damn good and ready.

It’s cool, baby…put it in cruise control….we’ll get there….

Eclipse luminaries are bi-quintile Saturn Rx in Virgo.
Mercury, Lord of the Eclipse is quintile Chiron.

If you are team Chiron rules Virgo – talents and genius expression.
If you are team Mercury rules Virgo – talents and genius expression.

Either way, we are working towards healing…

Like I said… Good to Go !

Mercury rules Maps, in this case of Moai.
 I happen to love Moai and Rapa Nui.
They keep me company in my Neptunian transporter room.
(laminated poster in  my shower.)
Lord of this eclipse will be exactly opposite my Neptuner !

Peace out ~
