The 18/19th of October 2013 brings a Penumbral Lunar Eclipse in Aries opposing the Sun in Libra. The ruler of this Full Moon is Mars, the planet of action and aggression. I saw that many people are wondering about it and decided to write an article. Well, this marks a beginning of Aries/Libra eclipses that will be with us till 2016, approximately 3 years from now. Aries is about “me” and Libra is about “us”, so the main focus will be independence and relationship.

As April Elliott Kent puts this into words that I loved: <<It’s not just about giving to others, but about letting them give to us as well.>>

I have been saying this in my other posts, the general rule of thumb avoid making decisions on a Lunar Eclipse. The main reason is you will not have all the information at hand, especially when soon Mercury, the planet of communication will turn retrograde in the sign of Scorpio (hidden meanings). So, open your eyes and search underneath the surface!

You are experiencing a heavy period and with this eclipse things are going to change big time for you! You have got to be prepared for it! As I was telling you, things are going to transform for you in a very personal way, the way you act, your physical appearance, your wishes and desires. You must find balance and just expect change to take over. This is a major lift of the spirit; you must learn to give and to appreciate real friendship, to offer and to receive. You are the first of the zodiac and that means power, leadership. Mars, your ruling planet will be in the work sector and that will give you a lot to do these days. Mars will be transiting this sector of your life till the 7th of December, so a busy month ahead of November 2013. Just remember Mercury will go retrograde in Scorpio from October 21 to November 10. Do not sign contracts, make a deal, and take extra care at financial initiatives that involve shared resources.

The eclipse marks a starting point on your health – you can start workout regimes, you can be aware of some illness that you now have to treat, make an appointment to the doctor, eat healthy and exercise; stay free with your spirit and you will benefit from these eclipses in Aries/ Libra. On October18/19 you should just open your eyes as something will be reveled or you can find very valuable information that was just under your eye. From Mars you got a lot of work to do, but still later Mars will be transiting the love life your life till the 7th of December and that means sex and happiness, childhood and easiness. Just remember Mercury, the planet of communication and deals will go retrograde in Scorpio from October 21 to November 10. Do not sign contracts and take care of your partner. You started thinking about buying a house in August 2013, but please be patient as it is not a good time to sign anything. Just search for it and wait for the perfect time. That will be in December 2013 and January 2014.

Gemini

The eclipse marks a starting point of change and new things in your circle of friends, relations and connections. You have beengemini through a period when these things went slow and now, just wait for it as things are going to change. You are going to invest more time in playing with your kids or with children that you love to take care of. It’s a time for pleasure and fun and connections and new ways for you to spend your free time. Mars, the warrior will be in your home sector and that will give you a lot to do these days. Mars will be transiting this sector of your life till the 7th of December. You will have a lot to do around the house and in a good way! Just remember Mercury, the planet of communication and deals will go retrograde in Scorpio from October 21 to November 10.

This post is entirely dedicated to Gemini people and to some of my dear friends that are born under this Sun Sign. I hope I will manage to cover all the great joy of having a Gemini friend or lover. Did I say joy? I meant excitement and pleasure and fun and crazy days! Gemini is the third Sun Sign and it is ruled by Mercury. To know and to understand a Gemini, you must start by understanding and feeling this little planet. Mercury is the smallest planet in our solar system and it is the closest planet to the Sun. It makes one trip around the Sun once every app 87 days. Mercury is bright when it is visible from Earth and it is quick, very quick. It is said to rule communication and day-to-day expression and life; Mercury is coordination, sports, fun. Mercury represents how we study, how we process information and how we communicate with others. Now, you know where to start when you want to figure out a Gemini friend or lover.

Gemini is the translation of the Greek Didymoi, “the Twins.” So, if you have a Gemini friend, in reality you have 2 of them. That is strange, but let me tell you: it’s worth it! Gemini is charming, full of intellectual energy, loves to travel and to talk about almost everything. They are lovely creatures that can change ambiance around into something really pleasant.

When in a good mood, Gemini can make you feel extraordinary because they are inquisitive, curious, communicative and versatile. When in a bad mood, they can be nervous, picky and indecisive. Having 2 of them always around, they can change their mind a lot, just like Natalie Portman. She is by the way my favorite Gemini and I will have to write a post only on her. Gemini is able to make quick changes in any aspect of their life. They cannot bear to be bored. They crave for variety and diverse ideas and jobs and people and houses and places. A real Gemini would say: “I’m a Gemini, and I get so bored so easily. I mean, I have moved six times in the last eight years.” Courteney Cox, born June 15.

Gemini loves to collect information and to share it with everybody. They have many friends and are very social. Usual, these friends come from a lot of places and they are very different. Anything not to tire or bore our little Gemini! They are prone to learning new languages; they are great with writing and with people, with TV shows and with jobs related to sales, with organizing events and marketing, with travel and public relations. Usually, they change jobs and one job for the rest of their lives is one thing they hate. You have to be an Air person to understand that! I know what I am talking about!

Now, do you happen to love a Gemini woman or man? You’re in for a very fun time! I am not sure if this is forever, but it’s sure going to worth the time of your life!

Do you love a Gemini Man? This is the Man you will find very easy, make friends with in an instant, but you are going to have hard time keeping him! You will never ever feel bored, but you will be probably tired. He is a great one: charming, smart, funny, creative and adventurous! What a man! To impress, he’ll tell funny stories or show off, but this is just at the beginning of the story. Gemini Man are enthusiastic and a have passion for life and sometimes for women. He loves his freedom and it’s going to be hard to marry him. Just be ready to have a great friend and a party person and a loves to travel guy by your side!

Do you love a Gemini Woman? You are in for a challenge! This woman is witty and happy and strong and versatile and a mix of everything you know! You can discuss anything with her: politics, religion, fashion and travel! You have to keep up with that. Try to read news faster than her. Just kidding, you are going to lose this game! Easily bored, Gemini women need constant change and movement. If you love to travel and to discuss and to change a lot, this is the woman for you. She will need an element of mystery with her lover, keeping her guessing and keep her attention alive. She will charming when she wants to and will love to party. Gemini woman will fall in love in a second, but will not risk her freedom. She will have to taste the water first and if you are her kind, she will be by your side. She will eternally be young at heart and will only plant roots when she is ready.

Gemini Compatibility? The best I know is Gemini – Gemini! I have been friends with this lovely couple that will win the race of longevity and they are fun and loving!
