How to Treat your Gemini


Like all Air signs, your Mercurial man or maiden thrives on information. Emotional matters may be viewed philosophically, logically or with refreshing humor. You won't find him sulking in a corner... everything must be discussed... hiding won't do! Your Gemini is especially attuned with friendship, and may seek many viewpoints and opinions from a multitude of acquaintances. He can bend with the wind - so do have patience.

You may be confused at times when your Gemini changes her mind, makes multiple plans or takes off suddenly. Gemini wants to befriend nearly everyone, and may sometimes even tell a little white lie in order to maintain good feelings. So, here are some pointers for keeping your sanity...

Feed your Gemini with the joy of your laughter. Talk to your Gemini - be open. Pull him back to you when he strays to other friends. Call him on his tiny little deceptions. Allow your Gemini to have other friendships, within reason. Be amazed and in awe of his knowledge! Enjoy the fun and friendship your Gemini has to offer. Treat her with genuine love and respect. Take joy in her wit and spare-of-the-moment activities. You will be richly rewarded with the fruits of her mental musings, fun times, delicious humor, silliness and true, true friendship.

How to Treat your Cancer


Your Cancer man or maiden is an especially kind and nurturing soul. Cancers are observant and empathetic. Just as the Moon fills with light from the Sun, your oceanic Cancer absorbs energy from those around her, deeply feeling their needs and desires. Your Cancer, like a warm mama, loves to fulfill you and make you comfortable. Home, food, garden, nursery, work - all become the loving charge of Cancer's love and care.

Sometimes your Cancer becomes overwhelmed with concern for others, and needs to take refuge in a protective shell to be shielded from negative influences. You may find your Cancer either hiding out or complaining sadly. It's just that he is filled to the brim with external woes, and just can't please everyone. Such a frustration!

For Cancer, the Moon who rules over his heart waxes and wanes, grows full with wild lunatic ravings and joy, and shrinks into that dark place where brooding and sulking can set in. Emotions are inconstant, but so entertaining for the lucky one who has a Cancer for a friend or partner!

The Cancer needs to feel needed. Don't hesitate to ask your Cancer for help, even if she seems downhearted. It makes her feel alive. Be sure to confide your deepest feelings and desires to your Cancer. It gives him the opportunity to be more a part of you, and strive to fulfill your happiness.

Feed your Cancer with a well stocked kitchen, room for a garden, pets, cozy decor and children. Take your Cancer to the water or ocean often. Allow your Cancer opportunities to use the deep imagination and creativity within. Be kind and patient when the Moon wreaks havoc on his moods. Make sure your Cancer has privacy when needed, and feels safe and protected. Screen his calls! Make sure her locks are secure! You will be rewarded with joyful, shining moonbeam smiles, and loving comforts of home to rival the most dotingf mothers!

The Chariot in the Tarot


The Chariot is associated with the Sign Cancer in the Tarot

~ Control ~

Look at him go! He's rounding the corner with ease! Has he won the race? Or is he just beginning, or maybe in the middle of it? This card often signifies a triumph - but no contest is ever completely won. We are constantly moving forward - there is always another goal up ahead.

The horses pulling the Chariot, one black and one white, are wild, instinctive animals. Harnessed by the skillful hand of a charioteer, their accuracy is dependent upon his poise, confidence, intelligence and strength.

As you go through the motions of life, you may sometimes ask yourself - who's driving this vessel? Is it the conscious me, is it these crazy feelings coursing through me, or could it be the untamed forces of my subconscious? Am I leading the way, or am I being led? Do I have the ultimate say in my destiny? Where am I headed, anyway??!!!

It follows that this card is all about Control - over the extremes of dark and light within your soul, over base emotional reactions, and over others who might entice you away from your true path.

The symbolism in the Chariot is deceptively simple - the Charioteer is the mind and the higher self, the horses are the instincts and emotions, and the Chariot itself is the body - your vessel. Are you truly in charge of where you're going?

There is a delicate balance going on here. Obviously, the driver needs his horses to get him where he wants to go - but if he lets go of the reins or loses concentration, they could take him someplace unfamiliar, or even unpleasant.

On another level, sometimes this card means that things are moving along, or someone or something is coming your way. If such is the case, enjoy the moment - and don't forget to give those wild horses a reward!

You may sometimes experience the fantastic feeling that you have won - and the Chariot may indeed be an indication of some triumph in your life - but until the horses rest completely or the chariot breaks down, some measure of control over your life will always be required.

The Outer Planets - Chiron, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto and the Lunar Nodes
~^. .^~


Uranus in Pisces! ... Uranus will stay in the Sign of the Fish 'til 2011! Spiritual Revolution you say?? Yes, that would describe it well. What can we expect with Uranus in Pisces? Perhaps our ideas about death, sacrifice, the fantastic and impossible, transcendence and service to humanity will take some dramatic and innovative turns. We can hope that humanitarianism will take on new meaning and purpose, and that service to others may become a more integral part of our social order. With this placement, Uranus can become quite reclusive or fanatical. Scientists who may have been hiding out for years in research can bring new and surprising inventions and discoveries into our midst, and Political Messiahs may come out of the woodwork. With Uranus and Neptune in mutual reception - they will rely upon each other more than usual, and herald perhaps a renewed and revolutionary (Uranus) vision for humanity (Neptune) The cost may be a certain amount of turmoil and confusion regarding just where we are going for humanity, and will probably not be without conflict.

Neptune in Aquarius (til 2012) is helping to set our expressions of love and creativity into positive, innovative motion. A change in the prevailing style in movies, fashion and art will be seen in the months and years to come - probably bringing much more in the realm of the unusual, shocking, rebellious, and inter-cultural.

Pluto is on the Sagittarius/Capricorn cusp through the end of 2008, bringing a new Plutonian era of change in our social institutions, government and power structures. The very fabric of society may begin to be re-woven - these are exciting times!! With Pluto first entering Capricorn accompanied by Venus and Jupiter, we may indeed feel blessed with good fortune, harmony and high ideals!

The powerful Neptune/Pluto septile, exact on Dec 1, 2006 and Feb. 21, 2007 will last (going in and out of close orb) into 2011! For those of us who are very creative, tremendous inspiration can bring influential, explosive, mind-blowing creations. In love - the potential for making inspired changes is heightened - yet there also exists the possibility of getting lost in confusion. Avoid falling into a pit of despair, or indulging in self-destructive activities. Getting nowhere fast? Look for Creative and Healthy, Inspired, Loving outlets to save your skin! Get involved in helping others.... this is especially important now! Neptune/Pluto can bring a fanaticism wthat has not been seen since the last such aspect at the beginning of WWII. Yet - this aspect is also very positive for creating lasting, humanitarian changes throughout the world.

The North and South Nodes are now on the Aquarius/Leo axis ('til 8/21/09). This node placement brings positive connections based on love for humanity and the quest for social equality, along with healing in the area of self-love and love for loyalty's sake. This is a good time to examine our motives, use our egos wisely, and take the high road - or face karmic consequences!

Chiron in Aquarius... This archetype of human compassion will be passing nonstop through Aquarius from January 06 til Feb. 2011, bringing a period of higher inspiration in the realm of healing. We may look forward to greater cooperation worldwide in the healing sciences, and perhaps going back to tradition - those time honored ways that our ancestors enjoyed and practiced in harmony with nature. Perhaps we may find more and more "health" foods (ie unaltered and unprocessed) on our grocery shelves, greater acceptance of mind-body healing approaches, and some brave new ideas to surface, too.

Mewsings from Venus & Mars... June 2008

Mars in Leo all month is bold, confident, brave, fun loving and protective of loved ones and family. This Mars goes well with Venus in Gemini (until 6/18), and the combination is sure to bring a light-hearted feeling to couples. Masculine energy may be somewhat unyielding and perhaps domineering, while feminine energy can be more flexible, or perhaps even fickle. Capitalize on enjoying each moment as it comes, and not taking things too seriously. Avoid gossip!

Venus in Cancer until 7/13 is possessive, emotional and ultra protective. She is more likely to take the lead and get things moving. With Mars in Leo, nurturing family and providing safe haven will be a priority. This is a great time to get into family and community projects.


During the first week in June, Venus sextiles Mars and bi-quintiles Jupiter while Mars bi-quintiles Uranus, bringing potential for new and exciting relationships to blossom.

The second week in June, Venus trines Chiron/North Node/Neptune, quintiles Saturn and squares Uranus, which can bring perhaps surprising opportunities to heal long-standing problems with compassion and deeper understanding. Some may feel a very strong need for closure.

During the third week, Pluto returns to Sagitarrius by retrograde (until late Nov. '08), while Mars opposes Chiron/Neptune, & Venus oposses Pluto & sextiles Saturn. These influences suggest a need to resolve any issues around honesty in relationships, and may bring opportunities to make long-lasting changes by taking a deeper look in the mirror. What you don't see but others do may come crashing in!

The last week in June, Venus octiles Mars and Neptune/Chiron while Jupiter octiles Saturn and Mars bi-quintiles Jupiter, bringing irritations and annoyances, most likely from authority figures, teachers and unwanted responsibilities. If you feel trodden upon or are trodding on others, it will be noticed.

~ The Big Guys ~
Jupiter in Capricorn til 1/5/09 will help set the stage for societal changes, and perhaps help to broaden the horizons of our policy makers and power brokers. This can be a year of making great leaps forward, taking chances, and making new ways the status quo.

Saturn in Virgo 'til July 21, 2010 brings our focus to the things of the earth.. the cleanliness and purity of our physical environment. These coming years can bring a stronger sense of purpose and responsibility within our social institutions, government and authority figures regarding the sanctity and protection of our mother earth. A wonderful time this can be!! Let's feel our earth permeating society, and becoming the central focus for all we do!
