GEMINI NEW MOON 2022
On May 30, 2022, at 7:29 AM EST, this new Moon takes place at 9 degrees of Air sign Gemini.
Mars and Jupiter are virtually conjunct in Aries at this new Moon inviting us to act in instinctual and optimistic ways.
Since Gemini is a mutable Air sign and it’s ruler, Mercury, is retrograde at the new Moon, we may get new and better ideas on a project or plan that is already on the mind or in the works.
Saturn in Aquarius square to Mercury in Taurus also brings flashes of genius that can be activated now – or groundwork, at least can be laid.
Mercury retrograde in Taurus asks to review projects and plans and remember why we started them in the first place and do they still have value? Has the need changed? Have circumstances shifted and the plan needs to be amended in pace with the new situation?
Mercury resumes forward motion on 3 June. Making the most of reflection and review of projects and plans will save time and energy in the coming weeks and months.
Saturn goes retrograde in Aquarius on June 4 and will resume forward motion October 23.
This gives us plenty of time for self correction, straightening out the structure of our lives: how time is spent and where. We can revisit old squabbles and see where relationships need attention, amends, reunions or partings.
We can choose to look at where we can grow up and take more responsibility for our own paths and priorities.
Find our own inner authority, break away from historical ties and imagined imprisonment to institutions. We can practice stepping each day into agency over our own lives. We can release real or imagined offenses/insults from others. We can dust off our own shoulders, be unburdened by rules that don’t serve us, and walk into a life that we choose. We can choose when rebelling is for our own good, or is simply a reaction to historical wounding or habits. Where is my wounding acting as a placeholder for where the life I want should be residing?
We can start again at any moment- to move toward what we do want in this life. The wound, the habit, the uncertainty can be replaced with a hope that becomes a vision, an experiment that becomes a practice, a foray that becomes a beloved and useful routine.
Paying particular attention to the why of the plan, the value for you of the plan on all levels – is it fun? Is it unfolding in a graceful way? How about the timing? Should it stay in the planning stages? Should we forge ahead? Let the intuition and higher mind be the guide. Take a quiet time to reflect on priorities and make adjustments where it seems right to do so.
Just a reminder: Gemini is the first of the mutable signs. It helps to transform ways of thinking. Let the wind tousle the hair and clear the ears to better hear what the Higher Self and Higher Realms have to tell. Gemini blows new information our way. What we do with that information is up to us. Discern what is useful and what can be swept away on a breeze.
The threads of the life can be picked up again and again - at any time – to weave that tapestry into something new, precious and spacious.
