Mars in Gemini, Psychopomp androgyny

May 11 Mars enters GEMINI until June 24 MENTAL CHATTER

Mars’s in the Twin sign draws us into the mental planes, the airy elemental realms, into thinking, a lot. We will be able to have eloquence of the tongue, and fluidity of the mind in duality.

We will have our brains flamed.  The Passion will be mind centered, and after all, it’s all in the mind, anyway.  Mercury is consciousness. Everything IS consciousness. There will be endless talking, and questioning, being curious; mucho mental flexibility and changes of mind.

Don’t expect commitments during this time. it is more an enquiry or a debate into what we want/don’t want. 

We’re in for about six weeks of Mercurial Androgynous psychopomp guidance.

Mercury is also in Gemini now. Mercury will go Retrograde May 18 @ 6:40 pm PDT/ 9:40 pm EDT/ May 19 @ 1:40 am GMT.Mercury is Retrograde until June 10th.

Mercury’s Retrograde motion will also have effect Mars while it is in Gemini.

GEMINI is a much more complex sign that is usually thought of these days. Mercury was originally a psychopomp or guide of souls from this world to the next.

Vision of Hermes Trimestigus by Johfra Bosschart,

What is a psychopomp? They are creatures, spirits, angels or deities in many religions whose responsibility is to escort newly deceased souls into the afterlife. They do not judge, they are their to provide safe passage. They are also associated with birds, whip-poor-wills, horses, ravens, stags, dogs, crows, owls, sparrows, and cuckoos. 

In Jungian Psychology the psychopomp mediates between the unconscious and conscious realms. In dreams the psychopomp is w wise man or woman, or sometimes a helpful animal. shamans are also psychopomp and they also help initiate souls from the spirit into the physical world at birth. 

PSYCHOPOMPS 

ANUBIS the jackel headed God,first greeted dead Egyptians.  The Egyptian Goddess Hathor, the Milky Way is her sacred breast-milk.  Hekate the Crone Goddess at the crossroads,  Azrael, the Angel of Death in Jewish and Christian mythology is a psychopomp in Islamic Mythology. The Angel Gabriel. The Morrigan, a Celtic shape-shifting Goddess of transitions is known to appear as ravens and crows. The horse Goddess Epona. The Valkyries in Norse myth were also psychopomp’s. Kalma is  a Finnish Goddess of the dead. 

Mercury is androgynous, and androgyny is in the news. Androgyny was classically shown as a human with both sexes and it does occur rarely in nature. People born this way were considered to be very powerful psychic beings and revered.

Bruce Jenner’s sex-change means he is becoming an androgyne.. He will be both male and female even if he identifies as female because his body, mind, spirit,DNA and history are still mainly masculine. If Bruce had been born into Native Indigenous cultures when they were intact, he would  have been called a twin-spirit and allowed to wear women’s clothes and to do women’s type of chores. He would be considered to be a shaman. 

I wish people would use the androgyne term rather thank transgendered which is a description but not an explanation. Do you know what I mean? 

We all have both masculine and feminine aspects in us anyways. All Males begin life as females and testosterone makes them turn into males. The range of more masculine females or more feminine male is purely chemistry, its our hormones. The Age of Aquarius which we are entering is an air sign and more androgynous. If one believes in past lives then we may have been a man in a past life and in this one, we are female but the past life memory may make it easier for these women to naturally be stronger, more independent, more masculine.

Androgyny is important in the alchemical work of being whole. Androgyny helps us  to incorporate  the Beloved within ourselves. This is the true sacred marriage within which attracts the outer beloved.

We will be able to enter the underworld of Hades, the Underworld more easily with Mars in Gemini during the retrograde phase, so set your sites on digging for diamonds in the soul mine.

It’s very important for all of us to go on the shadow journey now and attempt to marry our selves. Saturn will soon re-enter Scorpio and I predict the 3 month period from mid- June to mid-September to be a time of some of the most intense deepest inner work revelations there will be for awhile.

You will likely feel more  jittery, stressed and your mind will be racing. You will need to remember to breathe. GEMINI is the lungs. Remember to BREATHE, CONSCIOUSNESS AND THE BREATH ARE ONE.

TIRIEL is the Angel of Mercury. You can call on him to help guide you.

Gemini Lunacy, EarthTrine transformations,

April 21 Happy 89th birthday to Queen Elizabeth. We’re still waiting for the 2nd Royal baby who will definitely be a Taurus. Prince William is a Cancer water element and Kate is a Capricorn earth element and Prince George is a Cancer water element, born at the 29th critical degree. The Royals are balancing out quite nicely. They need fire and air to balance all the earth and water. 

Lots of Gemini Lunacy today

Gemini Moon squares Neptune in Pisces-

You may have  a foggy morning. Daydreaming; in the waking dream. Be hyper aware that everything that happens in your life is a dream. Dream on, dream more, talk about those dreams, 

Moon conjuncts VENUS in Gemini-

Venus in her androgynous phase now. She is airy chatty, flirtatious, charming gossamer butterfly.You will meet a tall woman or man who you can talk to endlessly.

MARS in Taurus TRINES PLUTO in Capricorn @ 15+ degrees

Before the transformation and after.

The will give Queen Elizabeth some extra oomph on her birthday, or anyone else born this day.

This is a very positive and powerful transformative energy. Like the caterpillar into the butterfly or moth which is endlessly fascinated by the Flame, the source.

Listen to your body and act from your gut instincts today.  MARS, the ruler of Aries is debilitated in Taurus, as it is opposite its ruling Sign of Scorpio which Pluto also rules.

This is a dynamic aspect never the less but you GOTTA WERK those trines, TWERK those trines.can you imagine the Queen twerking? 

This is a  very will powered aspect. Wanna move mountains? Today is the day.

Build it and they will come.  Isn’t baseball season starting?

Check out where the two heavies Mars and Pluto are trining in your chart.  15 degrees Taurus is conjunct to my Descendant and Pluto is in my 2nd house of resources, money, creativity. That means I am changing my image, being more grounded, practical and focused.Pluto is soul power, I’ll say yes. 

Gemini Moon sails on to sextile Jupiter in Leo,

good for talking up a new product,gives you extra wind if you are a Royal,in a good way.

You can sell refrigerators to King Penguins in the Antarctic today.

 

Remember all people born in 1985 will experience their Saturn Return with Saturn at the latter degrees of Scorpio and into the first 6 degrees of Sagittarius later this year.

Moon quincunx Pluto and sextile Uranus in PDT.

Which is a twisted Uranus Pluto discombobulation.

Venus as a boy – Bjork 

 

 

Gemini LOVERS Primer,astrology by Tara Greene

May 20 2014 Sun enters Gemini the sign of the naturally bi polar TWINS

 known as a “FUN da MENTAL”  sign. I made that up years ago.

Its a  fast monthly mind games romp while, changing partners, doe see doe-ing, and smiling with charming flirtyness.

GEMINI is Ruled by that fancy fleet- footed messenger  of the Gods – MERCURY, also the planet.

MERCURY is  consciousness, intelligence, analysis, communications. The SOuRCE in some senses.

GEMINI has what is called PEUR mentality and actions, for the more psychologically minded. There may be much mental Ado about not much during  Gemini times. Gemini is a light-headed air sign, dare we say Air head?

But ya gotta love ’em, They  move too fast for you to pin them down. Yes social butterflies those Gemini’s are.. NEVER EVER TRY TO PIN THEM DOWN. Their charm will win you over, they can sell refrigerators to Inuit folks. They shine in public speaking, disseminating info.

GEMINI men take for ever, if they ever do settle down. They naturally wander. They need some extra grounding planets or the MOON in CANCER or strong  Taurus energy to make them stable. If they don’t have earth strong in their charts FORGET IT unless you like a wandering lover. 

GEMINI’s get easily bored, they forget anniversaries,they need something to talk about, anything to  keep their jaws and minds going. They do jump from angel to devil- avoiding anything that would pin them down to taking a single stand.

Do you find that really fascinating?

Their main thrust is to gather information, move like the wind, quick change artists,curious,wiry, young, forever young.

DO YOU HAVE GEMINI SUN MOON VENUS OR MARS?

IF SO it is very difficult for you to be in a monogamous relationship. Your nature is to have your cake and eat  it too. You will have to work hard to come to terms with your roving childlike qualities. 

Mercury/Hermes Gemini's planet ruler

used by FTD florist as their symbol

MERCURY rules two signs – GEMINI a masculine Air element sign and VIRGO a feminine earth sign element.

VIRGO’s might be heard to be coughing and choking on that bit of info. But yes its true.

GEMINI is the eternal child whose curiosity to mentally explore every nook and cranny and lives in Never Never land like PETER PAN. Rarely ever show up on time.

VIRGO gathers, organizes, perfects, focuses, remembers, all the scattered details in a quite an OCD manner. If you seek intellect, humility, servers, obsessively organized workaholics, they love to read and have great often photographic memories. VIRGO is the polar opposite of GEMINI in so many ways. Yes they are very focussed on work, diligent,worry worts, often work in the health field, terribly disciplined in diet, exercise, being always punctual to GEMINI’s always late. 

May 21 MOON enters PISCES

SUN squares MOON in the wee hours

and MERCURY RULES the Sun and all the lunar days till Friday May 23 when Moon enters ARIES @ 9:01 am

MERCURY is the big KAHUNA for the next few days and there is a GEMINI NEW MOON MAY 28 @ 7 degrees at 11:40 am PDT/2:40 pm EDT

                                                                                                      GEMINI is associated with a surprising TAROT SYMBOL

Gemini Tarot ART

Gemini and Sagittarius opposites

THE LOVERS

This association killed me when I first learned the TArot. I already had learned Astrology so to have the LOVERS ASSOCIATED WITH GEMINI blew my mind.  Of course all relationships are about duality, choices, male and female, polar opposites. GEMINI is the POLE Star too.

also shown is  the opposite sign of GEMINI which is  SAGITTARIUS which is associated with ALCHEMY again back to HERMES/MERCURY.

The other card which is associated with the LOVERS #6 is THE DEVIL # 15 which also reduces to #6.

Its all about sacred geometry. The Lovers is the choice to love our dual nature our sexual twin. 

The DEVIL is about fear and separation.

Famed psychologist CARL JUNG said there are only two emotions LOVE AND FEAR.

WHICH WILL YOU CHOOSE?

LOVE or FEAR?

 

 

MERCURY, found  in thermometers. whose actions, hard to pin it down, describes Gemini’s energies perfectly…Quicksilver is also a deadly toxic poison but  can also be used to heal in Homeopath.  Now its in all those energy saving light bulbs and very dangerous.

Mercury’s symbol is the caduceus. Not just an FTD Florist symbol, every MD in the world uses the caduceus to signify the healing profession of MEDICINE. The caduceus was originally employed by Chiron and Asclepius as snakes were used to help heal people in Ancient Greece  Snakes were used in the Oracles at Delphi. Considered to be magical animals of the Goddess since always,two snakes entwined around the central staff or spine is KUNDALINI sexual energy.  The caduceus is an ancient symbol of DNA symbolizes the twin poles of consciousness, balance and the combining of opposites as in ALCHEMY to produce something entirely new. This is a deep psychological image.

Mercury in the TAROT  is  the # 1 symbol THE MAGUS MAGE OR MAGICIAN

MERCURY /Hermes is also the TRICKSTER

famous as COYOTE in Native American legends when your mind plays tricks on you…quess who is to blame?

HERMES is  a hermaphrodite, His name means HERMES & APHRODITE Mercury is both male HERMES and a female VENUS/APHRODITE in one. Yes all Gemini’s have this strong energy. Where is Gemini in your natal chart?

We see the hermaphrodite image in Kurt Hummel from GLEE-

Glee's Mercury Hermes Messenger

May 20 in 2012 there was an Annular Solar eclipse at Zero degrees of Gemini- it was spectacular. The Sun’s entry into Gemini now lights up the events from that time.
