Ahh! I’m loving the feeling in the air since the New Moon in Gemini we just had. I’m noticing how the relationships we have with archetypes deepen over time – and that new experiences I’ve had with Gemininians or pieces of myth I’ve picked up about this sign have newly prepared me this year to luxuriate into this moment. I’ve enjoyed a mood shift toward the fun kind of busy-ness – the Gemini gift of being curious and interested and feeling stimulated. I hope you are experiencing fun conversations and charming adventures.
This week actually has the potential to be very dreamy – for those of us on the northern hemisphere it’s springtime turning into summer, and for all of us on Earth the Sun will square Neptune, which is like the light of day being diffracted through a disco ball or a quartz crystal. The above photo was taken yesterday on the New Moon (photo by Oliva Lee) with a crystal over the camera lens. I could feel the Sun-Neptune while we were shooting and I loved it.
And with this diffracted light there are so many perspectives! Remember that our words and thoughts are portals. Information prepares us to perceive reality in certain ways. Have you ever made a more skillful choice because of some advice you heard or read? Yet also, have you ever been tormented by an imaginary fear? Ideas vary WIDELY in the effect they will inspire in us.This week we may want to tune extra attention to how we can utilize language to enhance our reality. What magic would speaking kindly to ourselves do? What alleviation of fear and anxiety could we experience if we ran mantras and positive affirmations instead of worst-case-scenario stories?
What would you do if you were light on your feet? One kind of Gemini magic is the mental openness to notice possibilities and, when at a fork in the road, the lightness of step to follow the glittery path. I invite you to consider what that would mean for you.
ALSO do you want to deepen your relationship to archetypes and learn the language of astrology? Learning this language is perhaps the best portal I’ve ever walked through — and I made this class to help others connect deeply to the practice as well. These are the last few days (deadline June 8) to sign up for my upcoming 45 hour online Evolutionary Astrology Intensive. This program is designed to initiate you into the language of astrology or deepen your existing astro practice so that you can read charts as a whole, gain a sense of past lives and karma in the natal chart, and learn about how to transform your life through the language of soul-centered astrology. The course is interactive and live, with all sessions recorded in case you have to catch up on your own time. Read more about the intensive, including testimonials, and enroll here, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to enroll by payment plan.
To get an idea of how others have experienced this course, here are a few testimonials:
“I first found Sabrina’s website quite by ‘accident’. I found myself reading her blog and exploring older issues of the blog. The words captured me and the unique perspective started shifting these pieces of my heart in profound ways. I would mull over a phrase over the course of a week and find my own perspectives shifted and expanded. After a few months, I learned Sabrina was offering a course on Evolutionary astrology and I deeply desired to take it. I am so glad I did! This course has been life altering in so many deep ways. I have found my understanding of astrology enriched in ways I hadn’t before experienced, as well as finding my night dreams full of symbolism and incredible messages and understandings. My relationship with the planets and the archetypes of their energy and how they play together has enlivened my own birth chart and given me a rich understanding of my inner self.I highly recommend studying or getting a reading with Sabrina. Her manner is kind and warm, open and encompassing. She truly loves humanity and has a profound understanding of the inner workings of astrology and the human psyche. Learning from her has been an immeasurably beautiful gift.” – Ash-lee J.
“I wholehearted recommend Sabrina’s intensive not only for folks with a curious passion for evolutionary astrology, but for those who are ready to cultivate a relationship to the archetypal denizens of their own nature in a safe and supportive learning environment. I began this course with a peripheral understanding of general astrology, and had a desire to know more than I knew, and I got way more than I bargained for. Thanks to this lovely experience, I’ve gained a deepening confidence in my own ability to recognize and interpret subtle celestial influences in my own life and develop balance in them. There’s a real perennial approach to cosmic living here, and I’m not overstating how valuable Sabrina’s methodology could be to one’s own journey towards fuller embodiment. Not just exclusively for potential practitioners, this a great course for storytellers who want to infuse their work with an expansive approach to intuitive mythology; for healers who want to apply a plus-minded modality for spiritual wellness; or for the seeker who is learning to trust their process of divinity and individuation. Sabrina is a masterful teacher, an Aquarian Age magnet for good people of many paths, and what she’s created will certainly elevate the best of your self-knowledge.” – Sean O.

Pathways will open up for us as we are honest with ourselves about what we are feeling. If something is coming up and nagging at you and you keep brushing it aside (“not now”), this would be a smart time to check in with it. Feelings that come as an “interruption” might actually hold breakthroughs that unlock obstacles along the path.

Venus enters Gemini: 6:37 PM PDT
Venus will stay in Gemini until July 3, 2019. During this time, here are some themes to consider:
Engaging others’ minds and being a lively conversationalist will be a prevalent love language.
We may feel more inclined and receptive toward novelty and desire lots of stimulation.
We may feel challenged or thwarted if we are attached to knowing where things are going. Gemini works its magic because it is constantly adaptable to shift and change, not because it is narrowly focused on one particular destination. Not all flirting leads somewhere, even though it can spark our fantasies of what could be. Relating with Venus in Gemini can come down to the present moment – there are too many variables in the future – and those moving pieces that would determine the future are in the now!

Confusion about identity is in the air. This can take form in a variety of ways, but here are some examples: finding out new information about oneself or others that changes our concept of who we/they are, feeling a marked dissonance between how we regard ourselves versus how others perceive us, projecting a fantasy identity of ourselves into the world, and seeing what we would like to see in others. The general point is: the image of self is not clear.
These moments of identity confusion, however disorienting, do allow us to soften our rigid perceptions and attachments, which in time will give way to a deeper self-concept. The confusion even reveals the nature that identity is itself, not a fixed monolithic object but something that is constantly imagined and created.
We may benefit from receiving reflections from others at this time – we might also be surprised to continually receive certain types of reflections that starkly contrast how we feel about ourselves.
There is also ample room to imagine who we are into being – to incorporate visualization and dreaming into our self-actualization.

There is an age-old debate (yes, I’d go ahead and say!) about whether naming, labeling, or classifying things detracts from their essence or our experience of them. But are all labels made equal? Some names, some ways of identifying phenomenon, act like iron walls. But other names, other words, become portals which invite us into an enriched union with that which is being named.
Take note of the “stories” you are interacting with – you know, the way that you think and speak about reality. Are you building walls or portals?
