Gemini New Moon, May 28 2014

Gemini new moonThe New Moon in Gemini occurs on May 28th. Because the New Moon is the beginning of a new lunar cycle, there is a fresh new energy that is available to us at the New Moon.  It’s an opportunity to make a clean start and begin anew.

Gemini is the sign of the twins, and often it manifests as two faces of the same person which never have an opportunity to meet.  We experience this internally as duality – a part of us seeks one experience and another part of us craves its opposite.  When our values are not in alignment it becomes more difficult for us to focus and achieve our goals.

For this reason, Gemini times are not great for goal setting.  But they ARE good for exposing ourselves to new things so that we can try on new experiences and see how we are changed by them.  So during this Gemini New Moon, try something new that you have never tried before.  Maybe something that has never even occurred to you to try, or something you are certain you won’t like.  Try it just because you can.

Gemini loves to talk and communicate, so using words and language will be greatly supported over the next few days.

This New Moon includes a square from the Sun and Moon to Neptune.  Neptune squares are amazing, creative, spiritually opening.  But they can also create illusion and make it difficult to focus if work is required.  In addition, Gemini itself lacks focus, preparing to explore all of the myriad of experiences that are offered to us at the moment.

The period between the 25th and the 29th and not great times for business applications.  Instead use this time for creative […]

The mystery of this Sagittarius eclipse, May 25 2013

Sagittarius full moon eclipseArt by Jo-Anne Mason, from the Savannah Gallery.  Coming off of the intensity of the third Uranus/Pluto square, this Full Moon eclipse is less powerful than the solar eclipse at the New Moon for a variety of reasons.  As an eclipse it is fairly week because the lunar nodes are 23 degrees from the lunation (the Sun and Moon), and in different signs.  The proximity from the lunar nodes to the Sun and Moon are what typically creates an eclipse, and the tighter the connection of the nodes to the lunation, the more intense the astrological effect will be.

This Full Moon is rather weak as an eclipse.  But it still packs the punch of a Full Moon in terms of illuminating the spaces of our interior consciousness and awareness.

As with all Full Moons, we have the Sun and Moon in opposition to each other, in signs that are polar opposites.  Typically that creates a great deal of tension which is why Full Moons can be so intense, but the Sagitarius/Gemini polarity embodies the least amount of stress of any of the zodiac polarities, so the Full Moons in these signs carry the potential for easier integration. The Moon is in Sagittarius now and the Sun in Gemini – both signs crave the freedom to pursue an ideal and gain greater understanding of the world. This is a time to set aside petty annoyances and allow ourselves the freedom to pursue our dreams.

Four planets are in communicative Gemini during this Full Moon, including a tight conjunction of Venus (beauty), Mercury (mind) and Jupiter (expansion and confidence), so the emphasis on transmission of ideas is heightened. This is not a particularly positive time for […]
