Saturday hosts the Gemini Lunar Eclipse - which can be seen across the United States. It's an emotional time so watch for Reactions and try and go for healthier Responses instead. How you THINK about what's going on determines how it plays out for you. A lot of messages pouring in that make us feel something strongly.
News of endings, new starts.
The news is sure to be abuzz at this time (Gemini/Sag = media, reporting, journalism, other countries and travel). Messages are stamped with major emotional over - and under - tones now!
We've all been through a Gemini Lunar Eclipse before (Dec 21 2010) so don't worry you'll survive this one. What happened back then? This blog entry is longer than usual, but detailed with what to expect in the next 6 months...
Wherever 18 Gemini falls in our Chart is an area of REVELATION - we'll face important information here. An ultimatum, a major announcement, a sudden insight, a radical message. The news will be emotional in nature and it will either be delivered by you or to you (from your own unconscious, from your own lips, in your email in box or presented on your TV or in a newspaper article).
What are the details of this important message?
Lunar Eclipses illuminate some area of our lives - we may receive news of an Ending, an enforced New Start, Deaths, a parting of the ways, a definite 'No thanks', a Green Light on a Project (woo hoo!), a final notice, a hiring or firing, a marriage or divorce, a relocation. You name it. The chess pieces of our lives are re-arranged under Lunar Eclipses and usually we FEEL it.
Since the Full Moon is joined to the Lunar South Node in Gemini, we have to stop overthinking, tying ourselves in knots. We have to quit the double-speak, double-standards and deceit (saying one thing, doing another). Old "justifications" or "excuses" could be back on the scene so keep them at bay by avoiding gossip and justification and always go for the Bigger Picture, the Better Picture, the Higher Path and the more Honest Way.
Asteroids Astraea (non-closure) and Psyche (psychological scars, childhood trauma) challenge this Eclipse in Virgo: expect there to be a seemingly unstoppable "re-play" of those soft spots and situations that trigger them. It may hurt but it's all to reveal yourself to you - and those places of Hurt that can finally be Healed or Accepted with compassionate sensitivity. Are you defined by awful events that happened to you in the past? Why? Happiness is always your other Choice. Maybe there's a better path.

If in doubt - talk it out. Write a letter. Don't keep it bottled up. And stop lying to yourself and others. Keep it clear, open, honest and if you're feeling it - throw in some wit. We could use it these days.
Something is about to surface. A feeling that needs to find its voice. An emotion that was never felt, or understood but which now can be - through the simple act of Talking About It.
Prepare then, to Emote. To Say How You Feel (or at least understand that you feel it, admitting it even just to yourself for example!). Maybe you won't get a chance to tell someone who has since died, or maybe you'll have a face-off with someone still alive, maybe you'll just hear yourself voicing certain feelings.
Can you let the past go? Can you find a certain peace? Can you accept how you feel? Can you revisit it one last time to truly see it and say it? Can you put words to your pain?
If you can, you'll be one of the lucky ones who use this period in the way it was intended: as a Mental Purging of Toxic Emotions that are polluting your field of experience: personal, familial, social and finally global. What you purge, affects the whole.
You can run, you can hide, but you can't get away from what's going on right now. Your part is essential. Be part of the Process, to be Part of the Solution, or wind up Part of the Problem.
"Death" is simply part of this Lunar Eclipse, as we resolve, shed, complete and move on.
You may be faced with a Communication Blackout, being cut off or cutting off from something or someone, you may find yourself turning into a Communication Monster, attacking/fighting/screaming and purging things you never knew you felt, and never knew you had it in you to say. The news may be filled with stories, images and people full of angst/pain/hurt.
Everyone and everything is purging. And this is good.
Endings are here. Death leads to a Re-Birth. Acknowledgment leads to Understanding of at least acceptance. But first we'll all face a personal and collective "Why?!".
Questions will be asked. And that's good. If we ask the right ones and not get lost in the propaganda, twisted and distorted messages of the times. With Uranus at 00 Aries, turning Direct, we just want to be FREE.
Here's your Chance.
As we leave 2011 and realize that Your Power to Respond far outweighs your Tendency to React.
