Person Holding the Sun



We are moving toward Gemini season now with the Sun being the first planet to enter there this Wednesday, June 15th. The first three days are a bit rocky as the Sun is weak in the D9 in Libra so low self-esteem and energy are up and the transit of the Sun itself from Taurus to Gemini between June 14-15 creates rocky energy as the Sun is considered sandhi which is like a Western Void of Course when it is between two signs and it is not considered an auspicious time to start new things.

The Sun moved into the constellation of Orion, the warrior of the winter sky, on June 8th and stays there until June 21st  (Taurus 23.20-Gemini 6.40). Its symbol is the deer. Mrigashira is formed by three faint stars at the head of the constellation of Orion. The constellation is very spiritual and promotes moksha and spiritual liberation that inspires people to study religion and philosophy. The Shakti of Mrigashira is the “power to give fulfillment” so a good time to rub your genie’s lamp and ask for a boon.   If your Sun, Moon, or rising sign is in this constellation, it gives you a deep yearning for something greater in your life. The deity of the constellation is Soma, connected to the Moon and the life and vital subtle forces that are created to manifest the physiological components of enlightenment.   Mars is fairly happy in the constellation of Purvabhadrapada (Aquarius 20-Cancer 3.20) until June 16th and so the connection is good but turns a bit weaker as Mars gets into weakness in the 4th pada (Pisces 0-3.20) until June 23rd.

The Sun has the most difficult journey in the constellation of Ardra (Gemini 6.40-20) June 22 – July 6th as it is channeling Rahu’s energy and this constellation can bring storms and deep suffering and teardrops in the quest to shed old pattern. Use this transit for transformation.  Problems with tornados and hurricanes can increase with too many planets in Ardra.  This year they are more spread out and Mercury does not go into Ardra until July 5-12th.

The best part of the transit is a wave of relief as the Sun gets more connected to Jupiter July 6-20th. Jupiter’s energy in the constellation of Purnavasu (Gemini 20-Cancer 3.20), is a positive place where there is a deep connection with one’s soul purpose through spiritual initiation and this can come up.  Still, with Jupiter weak and closely conjunct Pluto into June 3oth, the Sun’s transit here can be complicated and lead to false optimism or intense forcing of beliefs on others.

Leo rising will most feel this transit but in Gemini, it is an eleventh house transit and will bring gains after struggles Cancer rising will have the most trouble with this transit as it 12 houses from home and the Sun will disappear from the horizon and fail to shine. For now, enjoy the quest for Truth and something higher in this very pure constellation and my favorite of all, Orion, the spiritual warrior until June 21st.
