GEMINI NEW MOON
The May 2020 New Moon is at 2degrees Gemini on May 22 at 1:38 PM EST.
Gemini’s ruler, Mercury, is currently at 20 degrees Gemini exactly conjunct retrograde Venus at the time of the new Moon. Retrograde Venus not only reveals depths of relationship with others, it opens up the Union with the inner Self— the way to love, to value, to care for, to provide for the self— on all levels.
It’s Time to talk to the self about love. It’s Time to talk to the self with love. I found myself talking to myself using sweet words my mother called me, long ago and forgotten. They welled up in my mind as I started another quiet day.
Gemini is of the mind, as the first air sign. It has the ability to be gentle, as only mutable signs know how to be. It can help us to redirect the mind and the conversation to one that is increasingly caring, loving, encouraging, and useful.
With Gemini’s polarity to Sagittarius, we can join the mind and intuitive bodies together to shine a light that reveals more of the true Self.
Mercury and Venus are trine to Neptune in Pisces at the new Moon. Neptune is the higher mind of Venus. Mercury is thus thinking of love, care, relationship, nurturing, and connection to Spirit in a profound way at this new Moon.
Mercury likes to gather bits of information. Dots may be connected while we sleep, daydream or even stream more tv if we ask the higher Self, the inner Self to help.
Ask that all we see and hear and dream be a talisman, a shining light, a guide. Ask that the relevant pieces we have collected over days, months, years, lifetimes, be lit up brightly — to be understood, to be accepted, to be assimilated.
Neptune is timeless and retrograde Venus conjunct Mercury at the new Moon helps us to reach into the pool of all yearning, of all knowing, and retrieve that which we want to find and know.
If we stand in a pool, a tide, a bath, a puddle, and connect to the infinite wisdom that can focus on each one of us, answers can arise and fill us.
We can retrieve pieces that had been lying on the riverbed. We can begin to know.
As we stand in the water we can know that all elements connect to all others. Water is the biggest conductor of emotion. The Moon dictates the tidal movement and the emotional body.
All evolution stems from the Moon, the emotional body. This is what stirs us to seek, to ask, to meditate, to reach inward, to reach outward.
Stand quietly, in stillness in the pool of all that is, when the Moon is hidden from us and we are called within.
See what lights up…
Ask to be lit up.
Short and sweet in true Gemini fashion.
Lots of love to you and blessings on the connection to the Twin that awaits you — within.
The Full Moon in Scorpio takes place on May 7 at 6:45 EST.
The Scorpio/Taurus axis makes for a powerful full moon every time.
The Moon is asking us to reform how we look at the comfort and security that Sun in Taurus craves. It asks us to to look at what we value and how that affects our daily life and our transformational experience.
It draws Taurus, from its couch or sunny garden, into a deepening experience of our higher selves, our inner selves— which are one in the same.
Taurus is learning self sufficiency and the Scorpio full Moon teaches us to explore the resources available all around us and within us that we can share - and that the material world, and the inner world have on offer.
The first relationship that can be deepened and valued at this time is that with our higher/inner Self; that with Spirit.
When we listen, we have a constant friend, companion and advisor.
We may be getting lots of downloads from Source a Mercury speeds from Taurus to Gemini on 12 May then into Cancer on May 29. Keep your voice messaging open or a pen handy.
Things are starting to get interesting. We have Taurus’s ruler, Venus, currently in Gemini, starting Retrograde motion on the 13th of May at 2:45 am EST. Venus will resume forward motion on the 25th of June at 5 degrees Gemini. More about values and how we communicate and value the relationship with self and others.
Pluto is already retrograde at 24 degrees Capricorn calling for us to be adults and own our own authority when dealing with those “ in authority.”
Saturn will turn retrograde on 11 May at nearly 2 degrees Aquarius - which will call on us to ratchet up the desire to have a system that actually serves its people and its environment. Come July, the Saturn retrograde will dip back into Capricorn for another opportunity to really see how we are doing with personal authority and its relationship with the System.
Jupiter begins retrograde motion on 15 May at 27 degrees Capricorn which may incite some internalization of the idea that we CAN actually have a new kind of system. The caterpillar to butterfly transformation is in process.
We might be approaching the goo phase. We have been in the chrysalis phase for some months now. Parts of our caterpillar selves are melting away as we commune with our inner forces in isolation.
The revelations and reclaiming and retching and reviewing and renewing and recycling and retreating and refusing and reacting and rethinking and replacing and resisting and reevaluating and reposing that we have been and will be doing will all be included in the soup we are each becoming. That soup will be fuel for the ultimate transformation we make into the butterflies as a result of the current experience. Eventually we will emerge, sweaty from the exertion of transformation and rebirth.
Pluto and Jupiter are still in orb of their conjunction that asks us to deepen the relationship we have with our own individual power — getting to know it, allowing it to fill us up and to see how we want to use it for our highest and best good.
Taurus is about internal resources and value. Scorpio is about power and how we use it, how we embody it.
At this full moon, allow the love of the self and the power that grows in our hearts and spirits to glow. It will light each step along the path ahead.
