Solar Question for the Day: "Are you respecting
or abusing trust?"
Beltaine (Calan Mai) Quarter of the Year
May 20th, 2010
Sign of Gemini and the moon leaves dramatic Leo and moves into the Mutable Earth Sign of Virgo.
There can be all sorts of swirling energies happening. The First Quarter Moon phase urges us to take initial action necessary to achieve your goals by expressing your needs and desires. Keywords for this phase are action, expression, growth and breaking away. FEEL & MOVE. Make phone calls. Write letters. Dance. Act now. Moon in Virgo is the time in a lunar cycle to cleaning up things we've neglected while partying around with Leo's dramatic energies. This is the time we may feel the pressure of setting things in order, of being responsible and cleaning up messes we've been leaving . Virgo is an analytical grounded sign - time to analyze our goals and begin making progress on achieving them. Be aware that there can be excessive criticism of ourselves and/or others. Emotionally this can be an inward time when may reflect on personal relationships. Thor's Day - Jupiter's Day - making this a Day of Vision, Spiritual Insight and Expansion.
There are Major magickal energies for performing spells/rites on Financial Gain after the moon goes void of course and enters the sign of Virgo - and there are minor magickal energies for good luck spells.
How will you use the energies available? What correspondences will enhance your workings?
"They say that love's
not brought with treasure,
but gold can buy a lot of pleasure
and knowing I can pay the bills
is one of this plane's better thrills."

Sun in Gemini
The Sun enters the sign of Gemini, an Air sign. As such it indicates the world of thought, ideas, and
communications. It is also a Mutable sign adding flexibility and problem solving. Those born when the Sun is in this sign are generally adaptable, versatile and good at communication. The typical Geminian is mentally alert, inquisitive and constantly on the go.They are talkative, sociable, dexterous, mentally agile, interested in new experiences, good at adjusting to circumstances, and they make excellent communicators in all fields. While they have a lot of nervous energy they tend to squander this by over-committing to too many people or project at one time. Geminians are better at superficial relationships than they with their near and dear to whom they may appear cool and unaffectionate. They are, however, very alert and aware and good at picking up hidden signs and signals from others and from their environment. On the negative side they can be devious, inconsistent, and variable, moving rapidly from one idea to another.
For Geminians this period is good for work within an intellectual bias as long as they prioritize, apply themselves, and do not let themselves be distracted by new and more exciting things that come along. In relationships they need to be aware that others may need more open signs of affection than they do themselves. Non-Geminians should use the energy of this time to pursue intellectual pursuits and to work on all aspects of communication.
