Gemini Solar Eclipse ~> Breathing into Being

Sensitivity and quick reaction accompany the cosmic interplay between Sun, Moon & Earth, intensifies this weekend with a Gemini Solar Eclipse 20th/21st May (00:47bst on the 21st). Eclipses mark dramatic shifts, both within one's personal life, and without, as in the world around. And in Gemini, any change tends to be fast.

Intellectual Gemini is a dualistic sign that governs communication, thought, and how the mind perceives. As an Air sign, versatile Gemini has the ability to go with the flow, ride the wind, and breathe new-life into old ideas. Breath is also the heart-mind’s all-important vehicle to Spirit. During an eclipse meditation (which may be emotionally heightened as Sun and Moon square-up to the current Neptune/Chiron conjunction) our connection to Spirit is direct and focused; with the heaven’s advising to guard the Bodhi mind’s treasure and to be aware of breath as it fills the body with pure prana (universal energy), one is enabled to swiftly recognise separate realities and pacify any chaotic thoughts, to calm, protect, and centre the heart-mind dwelling in the magical mystery of true presence, even in the midst of a continual change _(♥)_

This solar eclipse begins a lunation which culminates in a Gemini-Sagittarius lunar eclipse at Saka Dawa, on June 4th, when Tibetans celebrate the birth, death and paranirvana of Sakyamuni Buddha. Swiftly following the full moon, Venus will transit of the Sun _(♥)_

“All that we are is the result of what we have thought. The mind is everything. What we think we become.” Buddha
