NEW MOON IN GEMINI – NEW MOON – NEW MIND
We have a new Moon in Gemini Today. The new Moon occurs when the Sun and Moon are in the same sign. So it is a Gemini kind of day. A Mercurial Sun
and Moon. This New Moon in the sign of ideas and thoughts and
communcation is squaring Neptune the planet of dreams and hope, ideals and
So – as New Moons mean a time for letting go and a time for making ready to begin
again – readjusted and refreshed, it is a great day to look at how our actual
plans and our dreams are dovetailing. Gemini looks at things in a quite
linear fashion, as opposed to it’s polarity, Sagittarius, who is more oriented
to the right brain and the big picture. Gemini can hold all of its
information in its hand – similarities, disparities and paradoxes. It can
hold information, instructions and intentions all at the same time.
So what I’m getting at here is that it’s a fine day to look at your dreams, hopes,
wishes and IDEAS for your life and to get on paper how you would like to embark.
And when I say on paper, set it down on a medium that works for you.
Maybe even try a new medium – make a selfie film of your high dream and
the first three things you are going to do to move toward it. Even if the
first two are daydreaming and meditating and the third one is asking the
universe for an insight on how to proceed.
Where would you like to go? Keep in mind that where you thought you might like
to go three months ago, or even yesterday -- may be different from where you
would like to go now. Gemini is always open to new ideas. It loves
them. Gemini is a mutable, changeable transformational sign. What
has been shifting in you about how you would like to live your life? Some
of our ideas and goals may not truly be ours, but may have been subtly and not
so subtly imprinted on us by family, by society, and by our own self from 10
years ago or 10 minutes ago.
Have a look at where you would like to be headed and be sure that it is the you of
RIGHT NOW that is making the map, that is setting the GPS, that is making that
visioning board. Gemini can hold a lot of ideas at once in the
swirl. Pull down the ones, as best you can, that are true for you
today. Maybe your idea is that you would like to drop all of your ideas
and start again. Maybe one or two or three are keepers.
So hold those ones out in front of you so you can see them and find your
way toward them.
Gemini can fall down when it just gathers information and doesn’t actually use any of
it. So keep what you like and put the rest in the recycling
bin. Breathe and Breathe and Breathe as Gemini is an Air Sign that
rules the nervous system and the lungs. Feel the beautiful expansion. And
when you feel ready, begin again.
Lots of love to you.
Today we have a powerful full Moon in Scorpio opposing the Sun in Taurus.
One way to consider a Full moon is to look at how our emotional body is working with
our personality body - -the Sun.
With the Sun in Taurus, we are wanting to feel secure on the earth plane – in the
northern hemisphere that can mean getting crops going for the spring, airing out
windows and getting ready for warmer weather, that leads to the food that will
nurture us in the winter which won’t be far off. Taurus is ever practical
and thinking about the basics like food, shelter and comfort. In the
southern hemisphere the need for security may lie in getting the crops in and
making sure the blankets are sufficient and the food stores robust enough to get
us through the colder times.
With the opposite sign, Scorpio, gracing the Full Moon, we are being asked to look at
how our emotional body feels in the security department. With the Moon
conjunct Saturn (master of time, Karma, structure, authority) in Scorpio we
might say – where are the cracks in the structure that helps us with healthy
boundaries in this world. Are the neighbors being noisy, staying up
late and invading your space? Is it time for double glazing?
It is a great time to look at the structure of our surroundings and our
inner landscape so that we have a relatively safe place from which to launch and
to which we can return.
Scorpio will do anything to transform to evolve, to find a way to reunite with the
energy of all that is, but there is an innate fear of that very transformation. So we need to do a few things that make us feel somewhat cozier about jumping into the fire that will burn away that which we no longer
Make a list of what we hope the transformation will bring – to bring on the boldness
Perhaps have a delicious meal and a good night’s sleep
and start your latest adventure -- the one that takes you
straight to your biggest edge – well rested and on a full stomach.
Scorpio may be secretive and Taurus may feel like it needs to do it all by itself.
But Scorpio also knows how to get others to help share the load. So if you
are getting ready to begin a transformation – new haircut, new job, new
meditation practice, a move across the world to start all over again – perhaps
you can ask someone to take part of the trip with you. Perhaps you can ask
for an opinion from a trusted friend or advisor.
How can you shore up your emotional cup? One way is to know
that it is okay to lean into the power of the Universe and to remember that your higher
self has your best interest at heart.
Remember that Mars is still retrograde in Libra til May 19. As Mars helps us move
our energy in the world, we may STILL not feel like moving forward. Allow
this to be the case, and review plans, make check lists, go inside and see if the idea you’ve been sure
that you wanted to run with needs to be revamped, copy edited by a friend, or
just shelved altogether until you are feeling the urge for forward motion.
The Fixed Taurus Sun Scorpio New Moon is one of the most potent of the year.
Fixed signs pack a lot of energy if we can allow ourselves to get on
board. With the Full Moon conjunct Saturn – your intentions and actions --
now and in the months to come – mean business. So go say hi to the
Moon tonight and definitely say hi to the Sun today. What has been welling
up in you can be assisted from conception to birth by their potent combination.
Lots of love to you all.
