The first solar eclipse of 2012 is today May 20, 2012. It enters into the sign of Gemini at 0 degrees at 1:56 p.m. PST. Solar eclipses are very powerful new moons that represent both endings and beginnings. A new moon is the beginning of the moon cycle when we think new thoughts and plant those new, creative ideas into the fertile soil of our imagination. That cycle ends at the full moon when the fruits of our labors bear its fruit. The planet Gemini is an air sign, mutable and positive, ruled by the planet Mercury. It’s symbol is the twins. The sign of Gemini rules communication and it is a very social sign but also the most moody, changing its emotions in an instant – so watch your emotions. Eclipses are rare, so it would be a time to look back at the past. The last solar eclipse was May 21, 1993. Think back to what were you doing on that date in time. What was going on in your life then and what is going on in your life now. If you take the last solar eclipse and compare it to this current one, it was the beginning of something new that you were perhaps beginning or thinking of doing and today that cycle is now culminating or you are about to take that which you started (or just thought about doing) to the next level.

The numbers 12 and 3
Today is a time of suspension and a good day to take a time out so to speak. These numbers associate with the Empress (3) – it’s the birth of a project, it’s about nurturing, and fertility. What wants to grow will take root as one eclipse ends and another begins. The 3 is the number of creativity, so look at new solutions. The Hanging Man (12) – gives opportunities to look at things with a new perspective. As I like to say, time to take the rose-colored glasses off and see things as they are, not as you want them to be. This is a great day to give birth to those creative and fertile ideas , but make sure you take a look at things from all angles. Think outside of the box. 12 and the Hanging Man represents spiritual insights and is a time of confusion but it can provide that inspiration you are looking for.
Solar Eclipse enters Gemini at 0 Degrees
The number 0 is limitless – it has no ending and no beginning, yet implies new beginnings. It relates to the Fool in the Tarot so look for unexpected opportunities. It definitely is a time for a new outlook on life.
Take time out today to be like the Hanged Man and look at all the possibilities in your life. You have all the wisdom inside of yourself to end the confusion. Enlist the aid of the 0 to begin anew and the 3 to find creative solutions to the impasse that is temporarily holding you back. Are you creating your own struggles? If so, let go of your internal struggles and use the power of this solar eclipse to end cycles that no longer serve you. Dissolve those boundaries of restrictions and fears that are holding you hostage. Yes it requires effort and sacrifice, yet in order to succeed or for your goals to be reached, this is a necessary evil. So while you are in the upside down position (the 12), take a moment to look at how your goals can be reached.
