Description: The search for variety is the trademark of the Gemini, who is always thinking and looking. Maddeningly inconsistent; Geminis can argue one point of view one day, and the completely opposite view the next. They symbol that represents this sign embodies the essential split in its nature of always trying to view both sides of teh coin at the same time. Geminis are true Jacks of all trades, but unfortunally if their talents are spread too thin, they may not realize their dreams.

Today’s Horoscope for Leo:

Today your charms are like magic — intoxicating when consumed in large quantities!

Open up a little more with your sweetie or coworkers — anyone who needs to know you a little better. You’re feeling the urge to divulge and they should eat it up. Everyone wins and things get better all around.

Daily Extended:
Today your charms are like magic — downright intoxicating, but dangerous in large quantities! Like putty in your hands, those to whom your charms are applied will be all too happy to comply with your wishes. You don’t have to go for the hard sell in order to get what you want. You just have to tell them how much fun they can have if they do what you are telling them to do. This power you have makes it a great day for planning a new social outing. Any idea you come up with will be met with applause.

Daily Flirt:
Open up to your friends and let them know what’s going on with you, even if it’s complicated or you don’t really get it yourself. Things are getting better, but only if you let them.

Daily Couples:
Reflect on the simple things that please you about your partner. Think about their kindness, and the many small ways they make your life better. The next time you are feeling down, remember these thoughts and be inspired.

Daily Singles:
A supportive group of friends comes in handy when you’re feeling low about everything from your love life or lack there of. Let them cheer you up how they know best.

Career & Finance:
Love and the office can be a good combination, but only when one doesn’t take place within the other. You need a romance, but be sure not to conduct it at work.

*Planting Day:
Yesterday was the first planting/harvest day I’d addressed here, and I talked about taking that literally by planting seeds in a physical garden, and I talked about it as a spiritual aspect in planting seeds of change in your own life, be it to “grow” new opportunities for love, work, homes, etc. Today is also a planting day, so the same is true, HOWEVER, we also experience the moon going void-or-course, which is NOT a good time for starting things because they either don’t come to fruition, or they turn out differently than planned. The moon is in Virgo until 2:42 p.m. (U.S. Central time), so planting (literally or figuratively) should be done prior to that time and NOT after.

When your plant is an EARTH sign, the energy of the Moon is focused into the roots of the plant. Carrots, beets, turnips, potatoes, and all tubers. Plant now to produce strong, hardy well-anchored plants. Turn compost heaps… – …When the Moon is in Virgo, put your garden in order; tie up plants, apply organic fertilizers. The Earth signs are considered to be extremely fertile.


Today’s Fairy Oracle: Look Inside Yourself
Today’s Tarot Card: 8 of Pentacles
Today’s Animal Message: Crow

Governed by Mars – Passion, courage, aggression, protection

(*note: figurative/spiritual seeds being planted today should be associated with the influences of Tuesday, so plant seeds for passion – which is not to be confused with Love, that’s Friday, seeds of courage, seeds of aggression, which can be interpreted as strength, and seeds for protection).

red, white, black, gray, maroon, scarlet

The Moon:
1st Quarter waxing in Virgo, shifts to 2nd Quarter Waxing at 10:03 a.m. U.S. Central, void-of-course at 2:42 p.m. for the remainder of the day.

Waxing Moon: Waxing, from New Moon to Full Moon, is the ideal time to do magic to draw things to you.

(*Note: if planting spiritual seeds today, make sure you’re focusing on DRAWING IN energy, meaning it’s not a good idea to focus on what habits you’d like to break, what things you’d like to quit, or what things you’d like to rid yourself of. Save those for when the moon is waning (shrinking). Focus on what’s to come, not on what’s to go).

Moon in Virgo: Favors accomplishment of details (8 of Pentacles!) and commands from higher up. Focus on health, hygiene, and daily schedules.

Moon Void-of-Course: Just before the Moon enters a new sign, it will make one final aspect (angular relationship) to another planet. Between that last aspect and the entrance of the Moon into the next sign, it is said to be void-of-course. Activities begun when the Moon is void-of-course rarely come to fruition, or they turn out very differently than planned.

The Sun:
Gemini, “The Twins”
May 22 – June 20

The third sign of the zodiac is concerned with:
* communication, articulation, speech
* dexterity, nimbleness, grace
* wit, instinct, persuasion, change, variety
* movement, curiousity, exploration, short journeys
* education, learning, collecting facts (8 of Pentacles!)
* attention to details, adaptability (8 of Pentacles!)
* intellect, intuition, youth, freedom

Elemental Quality
Gemini is the mutable sign of the zodiac. It can be likened to the wind in that it is constantly on the move in all its variety.

Air is a metaphor for the invisible thoughts and ideas that motivate Gemini, such as the intellect, the intuition, and the natural instincts.

The quality known as mutable means adaptable, changeable, agreeable. Gemini constantly adjusts ideas in an attempt to create harmony.

Spiritual Goal:
To learn how to cooperate.

Today’s Horoscope for Leo:

As much as your schedule allows, you should totally do whatever you want today.

You aren’t feeling up to being the life of the party today, though you’re more than happy to hang out and enjoy others’ hijinks. If anyone asks if you’re down, tell them the truth — it’s just a low day.

Daily Extended
Today, your impulsive side will want to take control, and you should let it! Follow your urges as much as you can, and try not to edit yourself too much. Want to wear pajamas all day? Enjoy it. Feel like driving around and getting lost on purpose? Fill up your gas tank and go. Suddenly get a craving for fries? Head for the drive thru. As much as your schedule allows, you should totally do what you want today. You deserve to savor your independence.

Daily Flirt:
Your people may be lining up for the next big thing, or to get tickets for a show that used to seem cool, but for some reason you’re just not that into it. Listen to your instincts for sure this time!

Daily Couples:
You’re talking, but are you being heard? If you feel like you’re not getting through to your honey, it might not be what you’re saying, but how you’re saying it. Try changing your approach and you’ll be heard loud and clear.

Daily Singles:
Being thrifty doesn’t always mean you’re a cheapskate. The upside to saving money from every day actions is that you’ll have more coin to spend on a romantic getaway or a short vacation with friends.

Career & Finance:
Your best strategist is clamming up. If you can’t get a word out of them, it might be time for you to do the long range planning. Be willing to put your impulses aside and think ahead.

*Planting Day

Use this literally, as in planting actual seeds in the garden.

Remember, you can use lunar influences for better gardening results. For example, the moon is currently in Virgo:

Moon in Virgo: This is a Earth sign. It is a good time to sow Root plants like Beetroot, Carrots, Chives, Jerusalem Artichokes, Kohl Rabi, Onions, Radish, Spring Onions, Swedes, Turnips, but it would not be a good time to sow Flower plants like Angelica, Borage, Calabrese, Caraway, Cauliflowers, Wormwood.” (Source)

Or, use this energy figuratively by planting seeds in your life.  Determine what it is you’d like to “grow”, whether new job, new love, new skills, and then plant and nurture those seeds so you can harvest the benefits later.

Today’s Fairy Oracle: Problem Resolved
Today’s Tarot Card: The Magician

Governed by the Moon- Peace, healing, caring, psychic awareness

Gray, lavender, white, silver, ivory

The Moon:
1st Quarter waxing in Virgo

Waxing Moon: Waxing, from New Moon to Full Moon, is the ideal time to do magic to draw things to you.

Moon in Virgo: Favors accomplishment of details and commands from higher up. Focus on health, hygiene, and daily schedules.

The Sun:
Gemini, “The Twins”
May 22 – June 21

The sign of Gemini is ruled by the planet Mercury. Physically it is related to the hands and lungs. It is said to have a masculine nature, and is therefore more outwardly oriented in its energy expression. It is an Air sign, and this means that it is connected with communication, mental contact and social principles. It is also a Mutable sign which enhances flexibility and adaptability. Planets placed in this sign will often reflect on personal intelligence, bringing a tremendous curiosity and a need to exchange ideas with other people in a social environment.

Negative manifestations of Gemini influences are a flightiness and unreliability, and a tendency to get involved with too many things at any one time. There is a love of ideas, but no inner need to put them into practice. Nevertheless this influence confers great mental insight, though there is often some kind of split in connection with planets placed in this sign. Planets here manifest considerable versatility and mental skills in regard to all forms of communication.

The greatest challenges come for you when communication problems arise. Often an important break with a brother, sister or close friend can inaugurate a complete mental revaluation. In your essential search for meaning you can feel a bond to two very different schools of thought, or you can have two mentors with quite different ideas. Variety and polarity is the stuff of life for you, and you feel distinctly uncomfortable if you are asked to identify yourself with one single direction or opinion. Tension can arise in partnership matters because of your changeability and seeming inconstancy. Often it is enough for you to entertain fleeting ideas as a kind of mental gymnastics. Thus frustration arises in others because you don’t always act on your ideas. Nevertheless you are fun to be with; you rarely take yourself too seriously, and are always willing to adapt to change.

Symbol: Twins
Colour: Yellow
Metal: Mercury
Gem: Agate


Today’s Horoscope for Leo:

Keep your cool and play things out more conservatively than you usually do, today.

Your retirement plan or other investments need some attention, though it’s nothing that should cause you to lose sleep. If you’re still trying to get a nest egg built, now is the time to focus on it!

Daily Extended:
You have a great insight into major events going on right now, and a lot of people would love to know what you know! Sitting in the catbird’s seat gives you a great feeling, and you are finally coming to a place where you can truly value your position in life. Resist the temptation to lord your power over other people who are at disadvantage — you don’t want to burn any bridges. Keep your cool and play this out more conservatively than you probably want to.

Daily Flirt:
You have to step in and figure out what to do about the financial situation. It’s a good time to get a lower credit card rate, save bucks on utilities or just find a way to bring in extra cash.

Daily Couples:
Today finds you feeling unusually introverted, and the only person you want to be around is your sweetheart. Make plans to spend the evening enjoying some quiet time together.

Daily Singles:
To keep the momentum going with someone special you have to be willing to take action at a moment’s notice — whether it be a romantic stroll through the park or a last minute party invitation. Be ready for anything.

Career & Finance:
Being impulsive hasn’t gotten you far. It’s time to slow down and take a breath. In this case, that means taking the time to review your plans. Then sticking with them.
