Psychic Vera Cosmic Advice May 27, 2015

The Moon begins void-of-course in Virgo and travels into Libra at 2:42 PM and our focus changes to working on relationships. It makes a positive aspect to Saturn early evening which makes it a good time work with others on organizational projects. The morning hours are good for cleaning projects.


Mercury conjuncts Mars. This is a good aspect for mechanical projects. The mind is quick today but so is the tongue. With Mercury retrograde we can say things to hastily which can easily offend others.


For today the Dalai Lama says, “Where humanity used to work together in ancient times we now rely on technological support and material values to the neglect of our human values.”


*In Mayan Astrology it’s 7 Manik also known as Deer. Let’s be comfortable with our individuality.


Moon in Virgo: Weed the garden. Moon in Libra: plant flowers.


Remember, being aware of astrological energies means that not only are we in tune with the cosmos, we’re also in tune with ourselves. Socrates said an unexamined life is not worth living, and another ancient Greek said, Know thyself. We can convert stressful planetary aspects to harmonious energies if we are aware of how they affect us and we are willing to take responsibility for our actions, without blaming others for our difficulties.

Sun in Gemini May 21 to June 21

Geminis can be intellectual wizards.  If you’re a Gemini you probably know a lot of things about a lot of things.  Much of a Gemini’s knowledge may be superficial and tangential but their communication skills are excellent, unless they have foot in mouth disease.  We’ve all met those.  A low-level Gemini may never stop talking and they have no interest or time in sharing their word space with anyone else.  Geminis like to say what they think.  The problem is, that can change in 10 seconds and while a Gemini has moved on, everyone else is left with their cutting words and inappropriate witticisms.  Donald Trump and Newt Gingrich are Geminis.  Low-level Geminis get bored easily and jump from project to project, subject to subject.  They’re jack-of-all-trades, master of none.  And they can be very indecisive. Gemini is known as the sign of the Twins because two distinct personalities play a role in a Gemini’s psyche.  There’s the charming and witty conversationalist and the insensitive gad-about.


High level Geminis, on the other hand, bring harmony to relationships where ever they go.  Alan Oken in Soul Centered Astrology says, “The Gemini individual is being used as a conscious vehicle for creating harmonious linkages in the world.”  He goes on to say that a high level Gemini “aligns and blends various conflicting political and social forces; acts as an agent for harmony in group interrelations, becomes a diplomat for peace, and inventing technological advances for the benefit of humanity.”  I wonder if Donald Trump or Newt Gingrich will ever rise to the level of Bill Moyers or my daughter, both high level Geminis. Probably not.


During the month of Gemini our focus is on communications, written and verbal. We have a variety of interests that can take us far afield from our original focus. We can also make headway on our research.


If you’re an Aries the Gemini month is a time for beefing up your communication skills, talking, writing, getting in touch with siblings, making short distance trips.  If you’re a Taurus, this month is spent working on your finances.  Maybe you’ll develop two incomes.  For you, Gemini, this is your month for self-expression and paying attention to your appearance, while it’s Cancer’s time of the year for withdrawal, meditation, and dream work, getting in touch with their vulnerabilities.  Leos likes to yak it up with friends and get involved with group associations while it’s Virgo’s time to shine and get some public recognition while concentrating on their careers.  Libra may like to travel during the Gemini month, have relationships with foreigners, and publicly express their thoughts.  If you’re a Scorpio, this is the month for dealing with issues surrounding death, sex and other people’s resources.  More focus on relationships for SagittariansCapricorns are spending more time communicating about health and work related issues.  Aquarians are having fun during this time of year and spending more energy on their loved ones, creativity, and children.  Pisces have home and family as their focus.

Mercury Retrograde in Gemini

Communication snafus

May 18th to June 11th.

Mercury starts retrograding on May 18th.. We should put off starting any new projects until after June 11th when Mercury is no longer retrograde. It’s a good time, though, to reevaluate and work on old projects. We should also delay buying appliances or cars because even new items may be lemons and break down. Be prepared for cancelled appointments, mail that goes missing, wrong information, and people saying things they don’t mean. It’s not a good idea to sign contracts. We should be aware that words can hurt and learn how to control ourselves. If you travel during this time, make sure your vehicle is in good condition and be willing to adapt to new contingencies along the way.


Mercury in Gemini gives us a communication double whammy. There are more problems with driving and cars, neighbors and sibling,. with computers and electronic equipment.


Aries needs to guard their tongue with siblings and neighbors and be careful in traffic while Taurus can get wrong information about their finances. Mistakes can be made with paychecks, banks, stock payments. Gemini may have some difficulty in presenting themselves. Cancer could have miscommunication coming through dreams and the subconscious. Leo could have trouble with miscommunications with friends and difficulty getting his or her point across in groups. Virgo could have communication problems with bosses and authority figures. If going on a long trip, Libra could have difficulties with airlines and schedules, missing appointments, or having difficulties with school admissions, while Scorpio could have problems with debts, joint finances, and miscommunication about sexual issues. Sagittarius should guard against communication difficulties with partners. Capricorn may have trouble at work and with co-workers and misinformation regarding health issues. Aquarius could have trouble talking with children or loved ones while Pisces could have communication mishaps in the home and with family members.
