    Cancer New Moon Solar Eclipse 🦀 – Understanding the Gemini-Cancer Cusp 🦋🐚

    Cancer New Moon Solar Eclipse 🦀 – Understanding the Gemini-Cancer Cusp 🦋🐚

    I feel.  I nurture.  I cradle.
    The Cancer New Moon Solar Eclipse this weekend is special, as it is the last Eclipse of a series in the sign of Cancer – fateful realignments with home and family. In order to fully understand the invitation of this eclipse portal, it is important to connect with the Gemini North Node 29° and it’s relationship to the Cancer New Moon 0°.
    🦋 The Butterfly is a beautiful image to help connect us to Gemini. The Butterfly is a sacred symbol for Gemini: light + ethereal, Divine Messenger, social and connected to the immediate surroundings, and an migration activist symbol of freedom of movement + hope (check the ♊️Emoji Story Archives for more on this). 🦋 Butterfly is also a sacred symbol that helps to build a bridge to understanding our next sign in the Zodiacal Wheel — Cancer. Butterflies are often used at memorials and funerals to commemorate the passing of a loved one. Even at my own grandmother’s funeral, we all wore Butterfly pins to connect us to her spirit and love of nature + gardening. Cancer connects us to our grandparents, messages from ancestors, and the grief of loved one’s passing.On this Cancer New Moon, feel into the invitation of coming Home to yourself, while also sensing into the initiation of fateful realignments with the Gemini North Node. In this podcast episode, I talk about the life and work of Cosmic Cousin’s ‘Queen of Cancer’ and how we can use her art to help us feel into the embodiment of Cancer, while also exploring the energy of Gemini. In her work she often paints butterflies 🦋 and even has a self-portrait of herself as Twins. Her Venus + Pluto are in Gemini.

    Sagittarius Lunar Eclipse 🏹 – 'Black Lives Matter' Protests

    Sagittarius Lunar Eclipse 🏹 – 'Black Lives Matter' Protests

    This podcast episode is dedicated to the 'Black Lives Matter' Global Protests occurring in our world. For those of you protesting, I hope you are staying safe. For those of you who are not, I hope the information provided allows you deeper insight into the energy of these times.
     
    Due to the wrongful murder of George Floyd and many others, it's important to say right out that the Cosmic Cousins Community supports 'Black Lives Matters' and stands in solidarity against racial injustice and police violence. In accordance with 'Amplify Melanated Voices', I am not posting any original content to instagram: June 1 - 7.  Instead, I am sharing work and information from Black  + BIPOC activists and healers who are speaking directly from their lived experience. If you are seeking resources on ways to be more involved, I encourage you to visit the Story Archives on my instagram for more information.

    Sagittarius Lunar Eclipse
     
    Fires of Great Change
     
    Eclipse energy offers a time of heightened emotional awareness with opportunities for exponential growth and evolution. During this portal, life can feel like it is moving at a more rapid pace. Sudden new insights into the world around us come flooding through, gifting us the extra encouragement to release outdated modes of existence no longer in alignment with the evolution of our planet. Simultaneously, the energy available to us offers us an equal opportunity to push us toward expanding beyond our comfort zone.
     
    During Gemini Season we become very conscious of contradictions within our immediate surroundings. The Sagittarius Full Moon seeks to balance the duality of Gemini by expanding our perception of reality to include the entire global stratosphere through collective vision. What started out as a protest in the Twin Cities (Gemini the twins) has now sparked a revolution around the world (Sagittarius the world traveler). So far, all 50 states plus 18 countries have participated in the 'Black Lives Matter' protests making it the largest Civil Rights Movement in the world to date.
    This particular Sagittarius Lunar Eclipse starts off a year and a half cycle of Eclipses along the Gemini/Sagittarius Axis. The last time we experienced this axis was during the September 11, 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center: The Twin Towers (Gemini) – World Trade (Sagittarius). This invites us back to themes of this time period. For instance, the United States' police force acquired military grade equipment because of the terrorist attacks of 9-11. Now, we are revisiting this theme, with much discussion around how arming our police with more powerful weapons has led to more violence against Americans. 
    As the first Sagittarius Eclipse in a series, this eclipse offers us a clue into the themes that will carry us through 2021. Fateful realignments occur along the Sagittarius-Gemini axis. This shifts the "usual" invitation of the Sagittarius Full Moon. Instead of a focus on the big picture vision, it indicates a major opportunity to release outdated Sagittarian energy. With the South Node in Sagittarius, we may experience a pull toward the shadow of this archetype.
    🏹
    Lower Manifestations of Sagittarius
    Sagittarius in a lower form can be heated, argumentative, and ignorant to other's world views. We may experience individuals exuding low-form Sagittarian traits at this time (especially during the Sagittarius Lunar Eclipse). We can expect aggressive tendencies, restlessness, erratic behavior, and even violence. We may exude these qualities within ourself, so be mindful of anger. If you feel your blood boiling, come back to mindfulness through your breath within your immediate surroundings.
    Sagittarius rules over religion, philosophy, and higher education. Many people may be falling into outdated dogmatic religious and world views,

    Can you cradle Darkness with Light? The Gemini New Moon is upon us. Today and this weekend offers us a time to recover and restore. We are invited inward into a place of adaptability. As the world around us continues to take new shape, simply notice what emotions this has brought up for you. Gemini energy may have us wanting to socially scatter, yet the New Moon beckons us to use this time to ponder.What movement and changes have been brought into your life? What synchronicities and chance happenings have you encountered? Do you feel a certain charge of alignment with those individuals who have come into your life? Have you met your other Self? What new you is emerging at this time? Gift yourself space to process your ever changing reality through writing, journaling, lyricism, or spoken-word.Gemini connects us to polarities. The contradictions in the world are illuminated over these 30 days. This New Moon is the time to get really clear on your own Truth within duality. Beyond the buzzing information and misinformation, what are you left with? Be mindful of the podcasts, media, and news sources you are engaging with. Be curiously discerning with who you interact with socially and intellectually. What starts out as an innocent conversation, can spin around into a space of confusion. Remember, Gemini can be a trickster.Gemini asks, "should we go this way? or that way?" Gemini responds to its own question, "I think...both ways?"  In a lower-form, we may find ourselves becoming split, traveling in entirely two different directions. We may say something untruthful to subconsciously create division of the Heart. Or perhaps we agree to something out of alignment, and as soon as the coast is clear, we run off! "Now you see me, now you don't".Gemini the Twins – the Divine Messengers – often bring us new information. As our Mutable Air sign, the messages can often be surprising, contradicting, and even life changing. In my own life, I have received disheartening news, and there is nothing I can do with this information but to simply be. I have also met new neighbors (Gemini rules over the neighborhood) who also traveled up to Mount Shasta from Los Angeles. There are two of them, like twins, and they are younger, inviting me into a place of innocent presence and play. Tonight we are playing a board game, and they are the first people I have hung out with since before the pandemic. I feel heavy. I feel light. Gemini is duality. How can we hold them both?"Poverty stole your golden shoes, But it didn't steal your laughter, And heartache came to visit me, But I knew it wasn't ever after” – Jewel (Gemini Sun + Moon).Go on a walk with your contradictions. Play patty-cake with your Truth. Dance with all of the information and messaging you are receiving both from within and without. Then bring it into harmony. Gemini rules the hands – an extension of our Heart. Bring both sides of yourself together in a prayer position. Propose a marriage between Yin & Yang. When you bring together the contradiction of Self, a loving presence and understanding of Truth emerges.
    On this Gemini New Moon, anchor in your uncertainty. Reach out and embrace the world from a place of Truth. Open yourself up to being a loving channel of Divine Communication – build bridges between duality.I ponder. I process. I write.Gemini New Moon Blessing to you all!🦉☯️‍📨

    Heightened emotion and psychic receptivity. Long kept secrets revealed. This Scorpio Full Moon will likely dig up some Deeper Truths. If these new discoveries are painful or bring up uncomfortable emotions, trust that whatever arises is meant to be illuminated for the evolution and realignment of you.In the world around us, this Scorpio Full Moon may have us all feeling a bit more intense or sensitive, as we are highly attuned to unseen forces at play. This makes us quite adept in our ability to peer into the mysteries of it all. New information is likely to emerge around themes of sexuality and power, particularly as it relates to government, authority, career, and the environment (Scorpio's ruling planet Pluto is in Capricorn). Be mindful of who you interact and engage with around these topics. You may be more magnetically drawn toward outdated patterns: self-sabotage, drugs and alcohol, power dynamics, sexual compulsion, co-dependency, obsession, conspiracy, secrecy and even manipulation. With sharp discernment and precision, consciously focus your energy on healing. By doing so, you hold space (Fixed) for the emotional transformation (Water) to occur. *Use the 'King of Cups' in the tarot to meditate on the Fixed Water embodiment.The Fixed Water modality of the Scorpio Full Moon can have of us holding on to emotion. This lower vibration of Fixed Water manifests as depression, repressed rage, jealousy, holding grudges, seeking revenge, or trying to gain control or power over our emotions. If this is the case, spend time with or around water to help you release any stagnation. We may also be more susceptible to storing other people's emotions or energies. Be weary of "energy vampires" or toxic individuals or environments. Practice spiritual hygiene. Set clear boundaries. Be sure to cleanse your space and call upon assistance from your guides.What parts of yourself are ready to die? Tune in and acknowledge these parts. But be gentle. Death is a slow and sensual process. Find a healthy outlet for processing the grief of this death-rebirth cycle. Ritual, ancestral work, altar building, tarot reading, journaling, therapy, deep conversations with a trusted friend, sexual healing, and ceremonial expression like painting, poetry, chanting, or music are all highly recommended at this time.This is also a great time to be alone. Scorpio energy invites us into a more internal landscape. What would Georgia O'Keeffe do? (Cosmic Cousin's 'Queen of Scorpio'). O'Keeffe left New York City and moved to the middle of the desert where she transformed her grief into beautiful portraits of bones, landscapes, and flowers–reflecting on themes of Life & Death. Allow her life to be a metaphor of how to navigate the energies of the Full Moon. Deepen your esoteric studies or creative pursuits. Engage with and honor the four elements. Light a candle. Take a bath. Massage your body. Take deep breathes. If able, spend time in nature. She is here to help us with this transformation. Blessed be!________________________________________

    In my own practice, I refer to Saturn as the “Planet of Spiritual Adult-ing”. Saturn’s placement in your Birth Chart will indicate where soul-growth occurs throughout your lifetime, encouraging you to step up to the podium of your “Higher Self”.I believe this workshop to be quite timely, as Saturn has now moved into the Collective Air sign of Aquarius. We have strongly been feeling this transition globally, as the world has shifted due to Covid-19.Saturn in Aquarius is an invitation for us to commit to humanity, take responsibility for community, and to use the internet like an adult. Aquarius also rules over astrology, offering us

    Beltane Tarot Ritual: Multi-media Meditation w/ Michael Anticoli + Claire Burgess of Fifth Spirit Tarot

    Beltane Tarot Ritual: Multi-media Meditation w/ Michael Anticoli + Claire Burgess of Fifth Spirit Tarot

    Hey Cosmic Cousins!
    In my own tarot practice, I use music to awaken a deeper connection to my intuition. In honor of Beltane, I present to you a multi-media tarot meditation collaboration with two incredibly gifted artists, both from different mediums.  Enjoy the music of Michael Anticoli (@michael.anticoli) paired with the art of Claire Burgess (@the.word.witch) from Fifth Spirit Tarot. How does the music deepen your connection to the tarot? I would love to hear from you.
    Michael Anticoli is an incredible musician and is very prolific with his composing. He’s releasing an album for each of the four elements: Air, Water, Fire, and Earth. Michael always wanted to create his own Tarot deck, but he’s not as much as a visual artist as he is a sonic creator. So he thought to himself, "Why not make a sonic Tarot deck?"  Michael is a Taurus Sun, Gemini Moon, Scorpio Rising, and he says this about his work, “This is a meditation, a journey, the fruits of investigating my own inner archetypes, my own stories, my own experiences.  Not having lyrics attached to the work helps others listen to it and paint their own stories onto it, use it for their own divination and meditation.”
    Claire Burgess is a queer and non-binary tarot reader, educator, illustrator, writer, podcaster, and witch. Claire is an Aquarius Sun, Gemini Moon, and Scorpio Rising. They're the person behind The Word Witch Tarot and the host of The Word Witch Podcast, and now of course, the Fifth Spirit, which is a modern and inclusive tarot deck for a world beyond binaries. This deck is truly remarkable. It’s images are vast and really speak to my queer heart, so I wanted to share it with you on today’s episode in an effort to support the kickstarter for Fifth Spirit Tarot.
    You can check out my website, as well as my instagram @cosmic.cousins, where I will also be posting the images of Fifth Spirit Tarot as a video with Michael’s music in the background.

    Taurus New Moon: Hierophant Tarot Soul Growth, Understanding Uranus + Saturn

    Taurus New Moon: Hierophant Tarot Soul Growth, Understanding Uranus + Saturn

    Taurus New Moon
    I ground.  I nourish.  I share.
    Earth Day brings us a beautiful Taurus New Moon. This offers us a time to go within and express gratitude for the practical and reliable in our lives. Some of the themes Taurus connects us to, include: agriculture, service occupations, manual labor, and anything else that we consistently rely on (but often overlook and take for granted because of Taurus' unwavering Fixed Earth dependability). This feels particularly resonant for us all right now. In my own life, because of the precautions we are being asked to make due to COVID-19, I have (for the first time in my life) cooked all of my meals at home for over a month. This has slowed me down considerably. A new sense of awareness is emerging. I feel much more connected and grateful for all of the farmers and workers that help me stay nourished and grounded. Without them, I would not be able to support you through astrology. We are all so interconnected. 💚This Taurus New Moon SQUARES (makes a 90° angle to) Saturn (responsibility, structure, and time) in Aquarius (community and interconnectedness). We may feel our capacity to ground, nourish, and enjoy is coming into conflict with the restrictions that have been placed on humanity.For those of us who are more privileged, we are encouraged to realign with our most generous and humanitarian side: donating money, time, resources, or food to those in need. Last year on the podcast, we crowned Cher 'Queen of Taurus'. I find it quite appropriate the play on words: Cher and "share". Taurus is a sign of great charity, generosity, and altruism.For those of us who may feel constricted or lacking, this New Moon could bring up deeper emotions around self-worth and lack thereof. Slower nourishing movement is encouraged.  Practical decisions that take stock and inventory of your resources are preferred. Now is a time to reintegrate simple, organic, or nature-based practices into your life.This Taurus New Moon is also CONJUNCT (hanging out with) Uranus – the planet of radical change and revolution. There will likely be unexpected opportunities to evolve in exciting new ways. In a lower-form, Uranus is connected to urgent decisions. If the desire arises to make sudden and erratic choices, take a step back and reconnect with your body and breath. In a higher-form, Uranus inundates us with new information to propel us forward into a Future aligned with our ever-evolving Higher Self. I refer to this as "Cosmic Downloads".  Be open to progressive new thoughts and ideas, particularly in relationship to the more practical and reliable parts of your life. When connecting with your body: breathe into your throat. Massage your neck. Relax your lips and jaw. Open your mouth and stretch out your tongue. Take gentle sweet care of your skin. These are all of the Taurean parts of the body. Taurus is also connected to all 5 senses, particularly sound. Hum a sacred tune. Listen to the world around you. Feel it in your body. Open yourself up to the radical unknown by grounding down in nature. All of these help to activate and awaken your 6th sense of Intuition. Taurus New Moon blessings to you all! If you'd like to learn more, there's a new podcast episode out today that goes deeper into all of these themes.

    Originally, I had planned on calling this workshop “Become your own Daddy”. However, every time I went to type this phrase out, I felt a strong “No.” So, I did as Saturn would inspire, I took a step back. I gave myself the space and time to reinvestigate my intentions for holding this workshop. I placed Saturn’s tarot card out, ‘The World’, and I dropped into a meditation. That’s when I heard the whisper: “Commit to your Hi

Review

I was sitting on my bed listening to your podcast and running my fingers through the cool sheets - a soothing thing I do. You were talking about the sag energy coming through our hands and how this can bring us awareness of stilling our hands to still and slow down our thoughts - to help us also connect back into our body too. I did this and found an immediate result in a shift in my state.... my thoughts slowed down right away . I found myself taking a big breathe in....hold the breath, release. Wow! I didn’t know that about hands...and why we do that in a meditation and suddenly it was real to me. Thanks. Much love and blessings to you❤️

No words

I have no words to express how beautiful and amazing this podcast is. I am just starting to learn astrology and Trash’s soul-centered approach resonates with me in ways that only a few things can. It’s not just about the signs and planets, it’s about the Soul and the beauty of being human and being part of something greater than ourselves. Thank you so so much for this gift! 💛

So grateful for you and this podcast!
Thank you for creating it Jeff.
