Unbelievable endings and fabulous beginnings: Lunar Eclipse 2012

Penumbral Lunar Eclipse

Full Moon in Gemini

November 28, 2012

By Maharani Rutan©

On November 28, 2012 at 9:33am EST, 6:33 am PT we will have a Penumbral Lunar Eclipse as well as the full moon in Gemini at 6 degrees depending upon the orb. The moon will grace at the same time. This eclipse is the 5th eclipse in series that began December 21, 2010 (read about it here), June 1, 2011 (read about it here), and December 10, 2011 (read about it here) and May 20, 2012 (read about it here).  This is second series of the Total Lunar Eclipse in Gemini.  Though the degrees vary by 7 to 16 degrees in exact position, the effects will be very similar to the one felt on June 1, 2011.

The visibility will be mostly in western Canada and limited in the United States.  However, to see this eclipse in full it is best to see it in Alaska, Australia or East Asia and it will last for approximately 1.5 hours.

The skies will capture this moon and it is known as the pure White moon; this is because the sky is pure black and the illumination brightens the sky.


This Lunar Eclipse and Full moon will impact people with mutable signs (Gemini, Sagittarius, Pisces and Virgos), whom will have incomprehensibility in sorting out their view of themselves and to the sentiments they feel.  Failing to distinguish that something or someone is not what it or they appear and it is not as passionately connected as they had anticipated.

During the eclipse the sun and the moon will have a vital role in areas of communication that is being brought by this eclipse.  It is time to use the signs from the universe to redo something that is ended and start to build something new. Often times it means planning until there is total exhaustion and finally making a rational decision.

Many people will transform their plans of the future by taking the time to look at all the things that have not met their desires to bring about new goals.  Especially to look at what has held them back for so long from having their sublime bliss. Since the eclipse falls in ruler of Sagittarius/Gemini we are seeking the truth through reflection.  However, Mercury is still retrograde and therefore you need to know what you what you are saying and be kind always.  Read more about it here.

This eclipse brings astonishing scenarios to the surface such as how we are to others, how we act toward others, and if our actions are in the best interests of all.  The eclipse energy brings Jupiter to focus where we bring spirituality into our lives and really clean up our act.  With Sagittarius also in the mix we are looking for the truth and seeking dependability.

Eclipses always come in pairs – keeping in mind for everything that ends, there is always a new beginning. This is the last Gemini eclipse of 2012 and there will not be another. However, Sagittarius has one more eclipse in May 2013 , and the duo is finished which brings together the Scorpio/ Taurus eclipses beginning November 13, 2012 and continuing for the next year and a half (read about the beginning eclipse here). 

Mutable signs (Gemini, Sagittarius, Pisces and Virgos) or those who have mutable signs in their charts will be gripped to do things that hinder with their emotional gratification or chasing after their desires while wasting their talents and skills trying to balance a war between their hunger and their desire.

According to Vedic astrology, during this eclipse Rahu (Confusion) and Ketu (Anger) are triggered to aspect the sun. Therefore, many unexpected and sad events are possible all around the world.  Gemini’s are also the rulers of reservations and thus causing situations to be a bit out of control. However, Rahu’s placement (Jupiter) will make things a slight bit tolerable.

When I look back at the events of December 21, 2010 I began a wonderful journey of work in area of education; work was over bearing, lectures and communication was very tiresome, and I worked very hard to gain a permanent position by putting hours of work, which was uncompensated for, just to please my supervisor only to find out in June they hire an additional full time person giving them full benefits while I continued to be paid on hourly basis with little benefits. Eventually, I finally did get hired full time only to find out again I had to take time off for medical reasons and conflicts again occurred at work through discriminative communications. Months before the May eclipse it was decided that the business would close down which would again mean what began in December is coming to a real end November 28, 2012 and it was very clear that would be the day.  Read about December 2010 eclipse here

This eclipse is geared toward education, learning, communication and seeking the authenticity.  The path that was unseen was not discovered until May 2012 eclipse.  The eclipses were all about starting something groundbreaking when the old was getting dull. It was also about discovering the depths of relationships which were psychologically, physically and spiritually exhausting while serving others and finding a center.  Whatever I grasped during the eclipses, I was always led to leave things that were never useful and spiritual.  If it meant I left friends and relationships to have a higher calling then that is what the eclipses did. Read about the May 2012 eclipse here .

Look back and see how profession, money and relationships transformed you? What choices did you make? Did you learn from them or are you at the same place doing the same thing that you were doing during 2001 to now? Are you going to school? Are you teaching someone? Or are you being taught? These are all questions being asked of you.

This eclipse falls in areas of communications; whether it is news about your next door neighbor, your ex or global events it will most insubordinate get your interest.  Everyone will be conversing and it may even feel like you have information overload.  Sagittarius also rules learning, teaching and travel.  But it could also mean publishing and writing and it is about upgrading already learned skills. However, it can be quite negative for people who are born within 5 days before or after November 28, 2012. Issues may be brought to the surface but don’t forget that we will all be affected one way or another since it’s hard not to have at least one mutable sign in your chart.  At the same order the eclipse urges you to expand your work or go on a vacation. Having this during retrograde, however, may impose some problems.

When a lunar eclipse occurs, the earth is passing between the Sun and the Moon, creating a Full Moon as we experience every month – but in this case, the alignment is perfect – the auscultation of the Moon complete. The intensity of the Full Moon is great, yet she is totally covered for about an hour by the earth’s shadow. You might even see violet, orange or a possible blue moon. The Sun and Moon are occupying opposite Astrological signs, therefore emphasizing the particular polarity inherent in those signs. During the period of auscultation, the Moon’s supportive light is temporary and we may experience a crisis of need where the particular sort of lack depends universally upon the astrological sign in which the eclipse occurs, and personally upon the natal astrological house (realm of influence), as well as the major aspects made to natal planets.

This eclipse is principally relationship oriented – and our relations with others can be disconnected, defied, or suddenly repaired together as the shock calls one to action. This eclipse centers on the home and family.  We may be deeply concerned about our feelings and needs within the context of the house, sign and planetary aspects affected. To fully appreciate the potential in the lunar eclipse, we must explore both houses and signs that are brought into play. Where the Moon (Gemini-communication and fickle-mindedness) is – we can confront our demons, old habits and fears, and where the Sun (Sagittarius-truth and learning) is we may find the means to embrace a release from whatever oppression we experience in life through our creative efforts. In any event, there are opportunities for deeper understanding, and finding a balance in our lives.



Mystery of mysteries, the Moon calls to the prophetic soul to wake and drift in kingdom beyond the persuasive, the lucid, and the solar daytime self… It is time to travel in the dream time, listening to your sixth sense, seeking answers in ancient memories deep within your unconscious… Release your hold on the mundane now; don’t try to have it all. Keep a dream diary, and open to moon whisper… Work with premonition; don’t be in a rush and embrace forms of magic that let the mind float free… It is time to be outrageous and worship the ever-changing beauty of the night…

While the moon is in the dualistic sign Gemini, people may never make up their minds.  With the Gemini ease of seeing both sides of everything we feel more flexible, unpredictable and articulate.  It is a good time to write, take care of tasks that resemble mathematical puzzles, make speeches, or just let ideas fly through the clouds.  Academic pursuits and mind games may become more inclined to rationalize emotions.  An extemporaneous language may hastily express things that are only true for the moment.

There is a need to determinedly express your feelings. People are hasty to arrive at a rational solution for any emotional problem – and will jump right in to provide a helpful opinion. The feelings may switch on and off. There are diverse aspects of a situation, therefore, bend and adjust to others. This could make people appear inconsistent or two-sided, but it is really the sign of an open mind. The need is to nurture others by staying in friendly communication. There is also a need to relate to your mother as a friend and keep in regular contact.

The Gemini moon stimulates your imagination. Stimulating ideas appear continually, like doors opening up to reveal other doors. Now is the time to make contacts, perhaps via e-mail or telephone. Explore your garden, learn from it, but don’t plant.

The Moon in Gemini also brings time of communication and elasticity. People may feel very loquacious and inquisitive. Caution needs to be taken to avoid saying something in haste that will be regretted later.

Allow the heavy encumbrances of the past months to drop away. You should swim like a light being and an angel in the heavens, in the harmonious seas of bliss and peace. I strongly suggest taking your aspirations that you have made last month and cross them out one by one.  Remember never beg for your aspirations.

It is my suggestion to bring out those aspiration papers again and cross off the ones you have already have changed and make new ones.  Also I suggest to purchase a Yellow candle – carve your name on it and anoint it with sandalwood or frankincense oil and chant the following chant: “”I ask to find the inner light of my creativity” I wish for the universe to help me achieve the recognition that I desire.” “I pray that I may find the strength to take chances with my creativity.”  Along with Psalm 7 every night until the next new moon-phase this will be December 13, 2012.

The moon in Gemini tends to be Friendly, Witty, Aware, Rational, and Flighty. The Airy Gemini Moon gives our heart wings of delight… friendly chats, neighborly visits, community interest and a bit of change-your-mindedness….

You may also choose to recite a mantra every morning until the next moon cycle. Remember that with all applications of psalms and mantras achieving the desired result is depended upon the quality of intention, and when it comes to finding a satisfying relationships and success, it is of the greatest importance to begin with a clear understanding of what your goal should be. The mantras can be hard to pronounce for many but it is a powerful source of energy the mantra for Gemini moon is:


Om Veshnu Namaha

(OM Vesh nu Na Ma Ha)


This Siddha mantra uses the universal elements that govern each charka: Earth, Water, Fire and Air.


For the lunar eclipse:

Om Chandrakia Namaha

(Om Chan dra Kia Nam aha)


The intention of this mantra is to call upon the God of protection and harmony to give you internal and external peace without uncertainties

Please note these are general predispositions, and highly recommend that you make an appointment with Leslie Hale to find out how this eclipse will affect you.  Most of the time Astrology is a guide to what is coming in the future and Astrologers are able to give you a glimpse of what you can expect. At the same time Vedic readings are also quite important because it uses the aspects of the sun, moon, karma, dharma, destiny and spiritual inclinations to translate what is about to come so that you can modify your life to have the most benefits from the eclipse.

I will be offering 6 month personal in-depth readings starting the 28th.  These will be encompassing areas of life that may not be touched upon by an Astrologer.  Together you can amplify the best of both worlds and create an intended path of your choice.

Additionally, please note that I am not an Astrologer, nor claim to be one, and the conditions of this information are completely general so that you can get a basic notion of what you can expect. Vedic reading encompasses a basic notion of how we live in the physical world and how we can change our destiny to be written in pencil – never a pen. Vedic reading also embraces the concept that for every action there is a reaction.  Until we know what action are going to be touching our lives we have no idea how react to them when it happens.  Vedic readings predetermines the actions so that your actions or reaction can be reactive sustainable rather than over-reactive and unmanageable.

Wishing a safe journey through the passages of lunar eclipse. Have a blessed a wonderful holiday season. Always remember that holidays are not about what you give, but rather, it is the significance behind the season.




Revolutionary Change: Solar Eclipse May 20 2012

Annular Solar Eclipse 

New Moon in Gemini

May 20, 2012

By Maharani Rutan ©

Abstract by Leslie Hale & Lee Stillwaters

On May 20, 2012, a beautiful ring will appear in our skies with the Annular Solar Eclipse in Gemini. The new moon will create a beginning and solar eclipse will heighten the effect.  This wonderful symphony will occur at approximately 07:47am EST and 3:47 am PST.   The eclipse will occur in 0 degrees Gemini.  It will be an amazing reset button for many.

The stunning part of the Annular Solar Eclipse happens when both planets the sun and the moon are in lined at the exact position. The line of the planets will cause a ring due to the placement and the size of the moon which will appear as a fire in the sky.  Even though the moon will enter our skies while the sun raises, those in the United States will not see it until the early afternoon in the United States.  This type of eclipse has not happened for 18 years in the United States and another like this will not occur until October 14, 2013.  The eclipse will begin its journey in Southeast China and continues its journey from California to Northern western Texas at 8:39 pm.

This is the third series of eclipses that have affected mutable signs since December 2010 read about it here.  Those that will have direct impact from this eclipse will be those that have planets at 25 to 30 degrees in Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius and those that have early planets in mutable signs (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces).

The May 20th Solar Eclipse in Gemini takes place on the same day as the Sun enters Gemini.  The timing of the Solar Eclipse takes place in the very 1st degree of the mutable sign of Gemini, so those born on or near May 20th, September 20th, November 20th, and February 20th are likely to experience the effects of the eclipse more significantly.  Solar Eclipses represent new beginnings, so those born with planets or house cusps in the first 5 degrees of Gemini, Virgo, Pisces, or Sagittarius are more likely to begin new projects, opportunities, and pursuits in their lives. “ Lee Stillwaters

“Those most affected by this eclipse will be Gemini, Sagittarius, Virgo and Pisces, or others who have a personal planet in their natal chart the eclipse is hitting.” Leslie Hale 

The effects of this eclipse can be felt as early as 5 days before (May 15, 2011). The discomfort of the energy of the eclipse will be felt by everyone; however, the intensity of the eclipse depends upon the house that the eclipse falls in your astrological chart.  Every eclipse has a significant bearing on revolution in our lives for at least 6 months; therefore, early born Gemini’s as well as those that have primary planets in Gemini may feel this effect more so than ever as well as late mutable signs.

This eclipse does not single out Gemini’s or just mutable signs, it will affect many especially those that are in relationships that are poisonous in nature.  Every eclipse is relationship oriented whether it is romantic, family, business or associates it has no bearing.  I would suggest a consult Leslie Hale to see how this eclipse will affect your interpersonal relationships in general and set up a 6 month in-depth reading with me.


There are a total of three 6 months in-depth reading since each eclipse is unique in its own prospective.  I especially emphasize mutable signs (Pisces, Gemini, Virgo and Sagittarius’s) as well as Fixed Signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Pisces).  However, celestial transformation will not narrow to having a sun sign in the signs mentioned above, if you chart has the sun, the moon, or any houses in the above mentioned sign there will be definite transformation.  What is yet to be determined is the journey which one will be on this is why I suggest a paired reading with an Astrologer.

“The first eclipse of the summer occurs on May 20, at 0 degrees of Gemini. It is a solar eclipse, and Gemini is the natural ruler of the third house of communications and rules speech, travel, and younger people, making these areas our focus. The eclipse squares Neptune, creating a potential for deceptive communication and situations, or lack of clarity in events, as well as water related weather events.” Leslie Hale.

To be able to understand how we are affected by the planets, a glimpse of Astrology 101 may be necessary. For example this eclipse will affect my 12th house.  The 12th house in astrology focuses on looking at the past to build a foundation for the future. When a person has Gemini in the 12th house this often represents solitude. When true ideas arrive when we are alone and the difficulty begins when we are misunderstood. The 12th house also represents family and difficulties with family members or association of the family.  Often related to siblings or relatives, even debt of karma owed to family members.  Those that have Gemini in the 12th house operate on intuitive impulses rather than thinking things through.  They are highly psychic and flow with creativity where the public and public speaking becomes a president in their lives. The 12th house is also where Neptune tends to reside which is the most misunderstood house this means that most people with Gemini in their 12th house naturally feel alone and vulnerable. To be able to understand the affects of this eclipse I would suggest you make an private appointment with my recommended astrologers here. Or go to my page where you can find a list of Astrologers for you to choose from.

“Eclipses often have a long life and the energy of an eclipse can last for months, sometimes years to come.  Eclipses are like guideposts and by looking at where the eclipses fall in your chart astrologers can get an idea of what the focus in your life will be over the year to come.Leslie Hale

 In ancient times eclipses were considered as omens and difficulties during the time of the eclipse and often in the current time it is as equally thought of.  Eclipses usually trigger major devastation such as negative weather patterns which could be such things as floods, earthquakes, and snow storms.  Often it is seen as irritable time for even humans the energy could create unrest politically, financially and even emotionally. The solar eclipse is an eye opener or a nudge as I had mentioned to realize that world we once knew is changing, either we change with it fight it.

“Mercury conjuncts Jupiter, an overall positive transit but things may be blown out of proportion. Astrologer Celeste Teal calls this eclipse, “Property Agreements,” and writes, “For the USA, a treaty may be involved. Visiting ambassadors. There are troubling uncertainties, and unsettling times. An underestimation of efforts risks failure. Mars overhead shows quarrels and conflicts, warlike themes and/or military involvement.  Mercury shows complicated situations and communication obstacles over high cost matters: prosperous potential. Concerns: finance and material. Crime rate changes, railway or mechanical accidents.  Risky speculation.”Leslie Hale.

The eclipse in early Gemini is definitely geared towards development through confidence and strives; there is a need to ask our selves what have we done to get where we need to go? And what more is needed to get where we want to go? It is time to gather material, form a plan, and make choices.  Because the evidence to form plans in our lives are so scattered the tendency to be frustrated could make it difficult to make choices.  This is very similar to the eclipse felt also in December 2010.  Read about it here.

The eclipses do not have to all be destructive; eclipses can bring new social position, and a need to take inventory to make enhancements to stability.  It is a time for maturity, inhale information and acquire knowledge of the spiritual and knowledgeable information and people.  And exhale the importance of sustainability and stability.  If in a career there was a great deal of effort and hard work than definitely the heavens will promote you, however, if it was revolving around just getting by then the angle of the eclipse will show you the direction your lacking.

Solar energy is peripheral, shielding, apologetic, active – and echoed and expressed from within our life force. This eclipse is particularly objective and purpose oriented – and our ideals and resolve can be enhanced and intensified. We begin to deeply consider our contributions in the world, and the full expression of our humanity.

This 6-month period is a time to focus on career status, social status and endeavors. This particular Eclipse chart places a huge planetary emphasis in one area of the Zodiac Gemini; however, Virgo, Pisces and Sagittarius are highly emphasized guarding against out-of-control patriotism, misunderstandings and over-sensitivity about boundaries. Tiny details can over-run long-term goals.

Along with the solar eclipse the heightened new moon will bring a new beginning to set out a passage of new projects and endeavors. The energy is just in the right place to bring growth, development and creating a physical world which one calls their own.  The restless will for the impulse to take action and begin something new, be it a small change in the way you approach your daily routine, or a whole new path on your journey through life. The energy is right for making spur-of-the-moment moves and following your instincts. This is the time to act from your heart and trust.  Know that the Cosmos will support you as long as your intentions are true.

What do you want to create in your life? What vision do you wish to manifest? The new begins a new cycle.  It is the seed of the beginning lunar cycle.  The chart of the New Moon is the key to influences in the coming lunar month.  The New Moon is an asking (invocative) time, and a time to formulate what our needs are according to the opportunities available (through Gemini this month).

The moon in Gemini is the sign of the Twins, on one side is the physical aspect of your life and on the other is you’re emotional.  Study, Trim, Acquire, Gather, and most of all communicate.  Open your self up for the most powerful conversations; get together with groups, brainstorm.  After all the information is collected make a new beginning, but be sure to bounce ideas back and forth with people.


Gemini’s are quite impulsive, bright, imaginative, resourceful, inventive, visionary and deadly in their creative power.   Gemini’s are known for the astuteness and it’s the most analytical signs but they are strangely corky and impersonal at times. Sometimes the energy is such a nuisance its best to ignore it at times. Their famous question is “but why?” when sometimes there are no answers.

The energy between the moon and eclipse may cause need to continually express feelings. Arriving to a quick logical solution for any emotional problem – and will jump right in to provide a helpful opinion. Emotional feelings are not consistent and often switch between on again and off again. This could make people appear fickle or two-sided, but is it you or them.  Be open-minded. The flip side of this energy may be that the urges of being super friendly in communication and a need to stay in touch with your mother or a female guardian becomes a must.

No matter how it is analyzed. The new moon focuses upon action.  Take this time and relax because we are in for a bumpy ride.  There will be 2 eclipses this summer.  Both in mutable signs. Therefore, this is just a beginning of a bumpy ride. But it does not have to be.


The Gemini moon stimulates curiosity. Interesting ideas appear constantly, like doors opening up to reveal other doors. Now is the time to make connections, perhaps via e-mail or telephone. Explore your garden, learn from it, but don’t plant.

The Moon in Gemini also brings time of communication and flexibility. People may feel very loquacious and inquisitive. This is a time to pursue academic interests and to take care of communications both verbal and written. Like the Twins that symbolize Gemini, people may be able to see both sides of a problem, but they may also be fickle and restless, unable to make up their minds. Caution needs to be taken to avoid saying something in haste that will be regretted later.

The eclipse can be a very difficult time even when things are perfect.  Appreciate the gifts that have been bestowed upon you by the cosmos.  Namaste the name of the sun embrace the difficulties and ask for forgiveness when frustrations have over come humility.


The Sanskrit mantras can be difficult to pronounce but it is a powerful source of energy on levels of sounds through us and the creator.  For the Solar Eclipse it is suggested that mantra of Surya be chanted every morning and every night for the entire transit (6 months).

Om Surya Namaha


(OmSurya Namaha)

Also I suggest to purchase a Yellow candle carve your name on it and anoint it with sandalwood or frankincense oil and chant the following chant: “”I ask to find the inner light of my creativity” I wish for the universe to help me achieve the recognition that I desire.” “I pray that I may find the strength to take chances with my creativity”.

Since, moon in Gemini- gracious, sharp, conscious, coherent, and changeable. The Airy Gemini Moon gives our heart wings of happiness… sociable chats, sociable visits, neighborhood interest and a bit of change-your-fickleness.

You may also choose to recite a mantra every morning until the next moon cycle. Remember that with all applications of psalms and mantras achieving the desired result is depended upon the quality of intention, and when it comes to finding a satisfying relationships and success, it is of the greatest importance to begin with a clear understanding of what your goal should be. The mantras can be hard to pronounce for many but it is a powerful source of energy the mantra for Gemini moon is:

OmVeshnu Namaha

(OM Vesh nu Na Ma Ha)

Remember the 12 aspirations.  Don’t forget to cross the ones you have already accomplished and make new ones. Don’t forget to manifest matters concerning materialistic things at this time.  And most of all don’t forget to light a white candle that day carve your name on the candle anoint the candle with Frankincense oil and chant Psalm 65 three times.  If you should have any other questions regarding the new moon please feel free to contact me or the Solar Eclipse, please feel to contact me.     

This solar eclipse I will be doing 6 months in-depth reading to prepare us for the finale at the beginning of July when things are set in stone until this fall.

Being a Vedic reader does not make me an Astrologer.  Vedic reading is focused geared towards transformational changes which embarked by actions and reactions.  One ounce of prevention brings solace understanding of the future.

For the best advice I would suggest you make an appointment with Leslie Hale and get a read on the effects of the two eclipses.  After you have had a complete reading on the transitions of the eclipse you may set up an appointment with me to have an in-depth reading done (6 months).  I especially recommend for Gemini’s and Sagittarius to have two readings done, both in May and June especially if you have Gemini in your chart and if you are mutable sign.

I will be accepting appointments for in-depth readings at a reduced price as early as 22 of May to be scheduled for June 03 on wards.


Please contact me prior to making an appointment so that I can be sure the slot for your appointment is available.

Wishing you the best of the transitions through eclipses..
