I love New Moons!
And today is one in Gemini. (11:02 am Eastern Time)
They’re fresh and regenerative… offering us a time every month to begin anew… to have another chance at starting something.
The general purpose of any New Moon is to create a new beginning, just as the Moon begins a brand new cycle from her dark or invisible phase, waxing to a tiny crescent and then on to bold brightness at the Full Moon, and then gradually waning again to a tiny sliver – back to the dark. Viewing the Moon’s phases in our night sky is such a beautiful reminder that life runs in cycles – and that we benefit if we pay attention to those cycles. Moon watching is both a connection to all humanity through the ages and an incredible way to gain insight into life from all the symbolic meanings that follow her constant but fluctuating passage. Whenever you have the chance, go outside and really look deeply at the Moon. Ponder how her reflected light and the phase that she presents affects you. Somehow this practice brings us back to center and offers an inner contentment. At least that is my experience.
This particular New Moon in Gemini, the second New Moon in Gemini in a month (which is unusual, and the previous one was on May 20 and coincided with the Solar Eclipse) brings yet more emphasis on the workings of our minds, how we analyze new information, and how we communicate what we come up with. There has been an incredible amount of celestial focus on Gemini of late: The Solar Eclipse, the Transit of Venus, Venus Retrograde in Gemini, the Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius which is the opposite sign to Gemini (therefore part of the same axis) and the 2 New Moons. Wow.
So here’s my suggestion on what to bring in or start anew at this New Moon (and it’s sort of all tied in to Venus, because of the recent Transit of Venus and that she is still Retrograde in Gemini.)
OPEN YOUR MIND… STRETCH IT WIDE. (Please really think about what this can mean to you. Really THINK about what is new that your eyes can see.)
EXTEND YOUR THOUGHTS INTO THE REALM OF YOUR VALUES.
NOURISH YOUR IDEAS WITH WISDOM.
COMMUNICATE all of these new thoughts, more loving values, and freshly wizened ideals FROM THE HEART.
And because Mars is in very much in the mix today via a square to the Sun and Moon, allow yourself to be motivated!! Don’t block the wellspring of energy that is edging you toward something perhaps a little scary and outside your comfort zone.
ACT with MOTIVATED INTELLIGENCE.
All of this Gemini-ness and Venus-ness is a reminder that you are what you think you are – therefore think that you are LOVE. And with the influence of both Venus and Mars, desire and create from the heart.
That is all. But that is a lot!
P.S. Remember that tomorrow is the Summer Solstice, brought to us by the Sun moving into Cancer. Celebrate!
