SUN IN GEMINI–SPEAK YOUR TRUTH
One of the most important principles of life and consciousness is cultivating and knowing the truth. There is divine and absolute truth and it is the basis and foundation of the universe and life. The cosmic laws and principles of nature are what science seeks to discover so that the power and wisdom of the universe can be tapped and utilized in practical ways to enhance mankind’s quality of life.
But besides science’s motivation to discover these truths that are inherent within matter and the physical manifestation of creation, there is the necessity for mankind to discover, unfold and live the more inner spiritual laws of life. These unfold within the consciousness of the individual as a result of inner reflection and meditation. One way that we can accurately describe the true nature of the human being is truth consciousness. When we individually and collectively become the living embodiment of truth then life is lived at the level of harmony, wisdom and perfection which is the goal of human evolution.
We want to remember this cosmic law: thinking is the basis of action; action is the basis of achievement; achievement is the basis of fulfillment. The word ” man ” is derived from the Sanskrit which means ” to think “. The key word for Gemini and its ruling planet Mercury is “to think”. We want to understand that the mystery of the human being is contained within the mystery of human thinking. As a person thinks, so they are. If you change the person’s thinking you change the person’s life.
It is a fundamental part of the human experience to discover and live the truth. Established in truth we cannot make mistakes. It is very apparent that our present culture and civilization is not based in truth. The state of massive conflict in the world is the result of living and basing our thinking and actions in untruth. These supposed truths that are the basis of our culture need to be examined, challenged and changed.
Each one of us has a responsibility to know and live the truth and communicate it to others. Most of us are aware that something is terribly wrong in our world and things must change if we are to survive. Each of us needs to speak up and speak out to create a meaningful conversation about the basis of the problems in our society. This is the manner in which enlightened change will happen. The time is now.
Libra ( September 22-October 21 ) Working on improving your primary relationship is encouraged now. The opportunity to experience positive growth both personally and in relationship is supported. Good communication is emphasized. There is also a unique opportunity to discuss and achieve mutually agreed upon plans for the future. True happiness can be achieved now.
SUN IN TAURUS–LET THE MONEY FLOW
With the beginning of the Spring season the fertility and fecundity of nature expresses in all of its beautiful diversity. New life and new opportunity are unfolding to manifest a new cycle of life expression. Taurus is a fixed earth sign which expresses as love of earth or love of materiality. The desire to experience all of the wonderful manifestations of life and nature are inherent within our being. Taurus is the most sensual sign of the zodiac and is very much into material pleasures and enjoyments. For a Taurus the pursuit of pleasure is a very defining characteristic. Not that all of us don’t enjoy the pursuit of pleasure. But we need to remind ourselves that we didn’t just come here to Earth to indulge ourselves in the pursuit of the finer things of life.
One of the things that we soon discover is that the finer things of life cost money. The finer the things usually the more costly they are. So the primary drive and intention inherent within Taurus is mastering how to create wealth and abundance in our lives. We need to master money in order to fulfill those desires for the experience of those finer things.
With the Sun entering Taurus on April 20 we should be placing more attention on mastering money and wealth and abundance.

The Sun enters Aries on March 20 marking the beginning of Spring. Spring Equinox is the beginning of our annual seasonal cycle of rebirth. Winter is a death process which involves releasing and letting go of that which no longer serves us. It is a cleansing and purification preparing us for rebirth and new beginnings. Hopefully you now have a new sense of purpose and direction in your life. This is the best time to initiate new projects in order to gain the support of the natural cosmic cycles that form the basis of all life expression.
Aries embodies the archetype of the warrior so it is now time to put on your warrior suit and go into battle. The battle is with the inherent resistance of our physical environment and the challenge of overcoming its stuckness and bend it to our will. The principle of Aries is courage. It takes courage to stand up to the powers that be in order to manifest and realize your own unique dharma and destiny.
Aries is the sign of the zodiac that expresses through motivation, initiative and action. The generic keyword for Aries is I Am. We are all in the process of self discovery of who and what we are. One of the primary paths of self realization is that of action or karma yoga. We discover who we are through what we do. Take some time to sit quietly and do a life review. Pinpoint the key things in your life that you have done and accomplished. Meditate on how these actions define you.
This Spring Equinox is especially powerful. It is also a New Moon total solar eclipse. The shadow of the eclipse is cast over Europe, North Africa and the Middle East. Where the shadow falls is where the greatest effect will be experienced. It is also the last of seven exact squares between Pluto and Uranus. These are the two planets that are behind all of the current turmoil in the world. Things could get rather crazy now. Hold onto your hats.

Pisces is the last sign of the zodiac and it represents completion patterns. The Fishes embodies the highest vibrational frequencies that are the source and foundation of all life and creation. It represents unity consciousness which is the living experience of the underlying oneness of all life. Everything is the expression of consciousness or light. Increasingly it is becoming imperative that we recognize and honor our interconnectedness with each other and all life. What each of us does ultimately affects everyone and everything. That is why we have the beautiful simplicity of the Golden Rule: ” Do unto others as you would have them do unto you”. It is also expressed through the aphorism: “You are your brother’s keeper”. We are all in this adventure together and we have a responsibility to help each other along this challenging path of life.
The Sun enters into Pisces on February 18 and it is just 3 minutes after the New Moon in Aquarius 29 degrees. This time is very powerful in its combining of the Sun’s entry into Pisces combined with the Aquarius New Moon. Neptune, the planetary ruler of Pisces, is conjunct the Sun and Moon giving more strength and emphasis to the spirituality that is being seeded at the present time. Saturn is squaring these 3 planets trying to inhibit their expression. The Uranus/ Pluto square is conjuncting the Dragon’s Head and Tail adding additional testing to the situation. It is presenting a clear choice to act on the basis of selfishness or selflessness. It is now time to heal the illusion of separation between us and come together.

They form their own unique environment of forests and lakes and rivers that assure that nature is the dominant influence here.

In the spiritual traditions of the world mountains are a symbol of life and the spiritual path. The zodiacal being that expresses through Capricorn is the mountain goat–the most sure footed of animals whose instinct is to climb to the highest possible point. From the top, the whole world is at your feet and you have conquered the mountain. This is a metaphor for life where we need to have the ambition and drive to achieve our highest goals. This can manifest as peak experiences. In order to do that we have to overcome all the obstacles and challenges that life throws in our path.

This holiday is the ongoing celebration of the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain, followed the next day by the Christian All Saints Day.
Halloween and Samhain celebrate the archetypal nature of Scorpio. Traditionally this is the time when the boundaries between the spiritual and material worlds become thin allowing non-physical entities to enter the physical and for humans to enter the spiritual realms. It is a time of releasing the lower astral entities–demons, the dead, etc–to be able to walk the earth.

TIME TO GET HEALTHY
It should be the case that we are more active in the summer time. Hiking, biking, kayaking, swimming and playing sports are usual activities this time of year. This can make us more fit and healthy. With farmers markets and fresh produce we can have healthier food and diets. People who live at Tahoe tend to spend more time outdoors and therefore are more active and healthy.
We are constantly hearing how unhealthy the American populace is and we all need to take responsibility for our physical, mental and emotional well being.
