This is Saturn’s first time in Capricorn since 1988-1990 and today completes its second retro in its home sign. This is a tremendous amount of stabilizing energy that you can direct consciously on your own behalf.
Communication, by definition, means the exchange of thoughts, messages, or the like, by speech, signals, or writing. If you don't communicate well, it should be made a priority to learn. Most people don't realize that bad communication is almost always the source of their frustration. Communication connects every part of a relationship (business, friendship or love).
We have Eclipses every year so there is ALWAYS energy for change available. The Signs that these Eclipses fall in express the theme, energy and lesson(s) of that *change*. I did a little tracking and found that like 2009 and 2011, there are other years which bring 6 Eclipses, rather than the usual 4 (and sometimes 5). And on very rare occasions, years which bring 7 Eclipses in one calendar year. It happens, apparently, at least once in a decade.
Taurus/Scorpio energy brings awareness of your deepest values, renewal of your priorities and access to the power to co-create your world. Taurus time (April/May) and the Taurus New Moon are the annual opportunities to seed the *Garden* of your life ... while Scorpio time (Oct/Nov) and the Scorpio Full Moon bring the annual gifts of power, magic and purification. Working consciously with these energies gives you a chance to truly ground your Highest intentions and bring them in to 'form' to serve the greater good, which will attract blessings beyond your wildest imagination ... *IF* you maintain integrity and DO THE WORK! Earth energy requires getting real ~ getting serious ~ and getting dirty!
As we enter the current Pisces energy, many people will be feeling more sensitive than usual, picking up all kinds of information via all six senses. Over-sensitivity that disrupts your flow and takes you away from your center is one thing, but a better way to think of this energy is to ponder the concept of how sound penetrates when you put your head under water. It is likely the same sensation as when you were in the womb of your mother's belly. You actually "feel" the sounds more than you "hear" them, you "sense" all the activity around you.
The Sun in Gemini (5/20-6/21) *Illuminates & Infuses* our ideas & thoughts, which are then *communicated* through our body language, our actual language/words, our energetic field (aura), our movements and sounds ~ ALL express something from within.
Independent means "free from the control of others; self-reliant". To me, it means OWN YOUR STUFF - KEEP IT REAL! Everything about you - the good, the bad and the ugly - is because of you and your choices. We make choices based on the knowledge and experience we have at the time, but the choices are our own nonetheless.
This energy turns your thoughts and ideas toward how you feel, what inspires you with love and beauty. This is a great time to be particularly creative, or do something related to the arts. It is best to keep it light and let go of your mundane burdens just for a time. Pleasure reading, walk on the beach, a play or museum are all good things to do at some point this week.
This is a healthy, positive, transformative energy. You will have access to energy that will help you change your immediate environment for the better and/or clear up an issue that has been pressing for some time now.
