The Sun in Gemini at 9 degrees is in “edgy” contact with Neptune at 9 degrees Pisces. 9 degrees in numerology is a number of completion. You have reached the point of mastery and it is now time to release and let go before you transition and begin the cycle anew. With Mercury very close to the Sun, spinning backwards, it is reminding us of our thoughts and what we may need to review or readjust in our lives. As the Sun and Mercury contact Neptune with some intensity, we are called to look at the things we cannot see. The world beyond our individual selves, where boundaries dissolve and self is surrendered to the collective. In that ethereal and mystical dreamscape, where we find faith in something beyond ourselves, we are challenged to ground as earth dwellers. With Mars in close contact with the Sun, there is some conviction and passion around what we “think” and make of what appears to be the “facts” of our lives. With the versatility of Gemini and the invitation to rewrite our “known” realities from a more spiritual context, try to be open to alternative ideas and open to the synchronicities that may be trying to get your attention.
The Moon is in Scorpio today about half way through its visit until it enters “Sag” for the Full Moon in a few days. A Scorpio Moon brings up what may be lingering below the surface in our hearts. The things we may shy away from as they can be emotionally intense such as our own mortality or the shadow side of ourselves. Scorpio wants what is truly real and no BS. Pluto is flowing to the Moon, trying to support us in having a safe container to look at what lies beneath the bed or has been put away in the closet we may need to take responsibility for. So, if you have emotions rising up today, recognize it is an opportunity to bring light to the shadow places that seek to be healed as we are assisted by the loving and compassionate connection to Neptune, our antennae to the divine Spirit. Venus is also living in the ‘emotional’ terrain in Cancer seeking purity and basic emotional connection in our relationships. She wants us to feel secure to let down our protective shell and connect to others from the heart.
