Gemini New Moon – May 22, 2020
The New Moon forms at 02 degrees, 04 minutes Gemini this morning, at 10:38 am, PDT. I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but I’ve been feeling a distinct shift in the air. The energy is starting to stir and the air is beginning to sparkle and dance. There’s a pile-up of planets in Gemini. Moon, Sun, Venus, Mercury, the asteroid Vesta, and the Lunar North Node are all together and strung out between 02 degrees and 29 degrees Gemini. I would say – they’ve got it covered!
Gemini / Mercury’s specialty is information. This new moon presents a treasure trove of just that. And Gemini is happy to play host to you as you search the archives. He will assist you whenever its possible. You must understand, however, – he’s got a LOT of requests and visitors just now. He’ll do what he can to familiarize you with his “system” and the layout of the place – but really – it’s going to be up to you to decide where to start looking, and to decide what information you need and/or don’t need. In true unbiased Gemini fashion, said information is completely unedited, potentially in disarray, true and not true depending on where and when you search. And useful and not useful depending on what you might be searching for. But its all there. So don’t give up. This is a huge part of the process. Your discernment is yours alone. And it’s critical that you make these decisions in order to progress.
This new moon is presenting us with a task. The over-arching task is to move ahead with full conscious awareness that we are waist-deep in change. Little (and perhaps even nothing) is going to go back to the way it was. Mercury at 21 degrees Gemini is squaring Neptune at 21 degrees Pisces today. This is the perfect storm of “What’s True, What’s Not True, and What Might or Might Not Be True” (depending on who you ask and what kind of mood they might be in when you ask them for their assistance). We must be acutely aware of our communication style. Be clear and articulate. Ask good questions. Do not accept the first answer you get. Do some investigating and checking. The energy is extremely fast right now. People and things show up, vanish, and then pop up again. There’s a lot of coming and going – a lot of back and forth. And we don’t have a clear picture of how long all this will take. But we do know this: It starts today.
The impetus to move decisively and quickly is intense. Like it or not we are moving into a future that will require a lot of decision-making and an equal amount of work. This is not renovating or repairing or even rebuilding. As the first mutable sign, Gemini proposes that we adapt and change. Notice that there’s no reference here to tweaking what we already have or to restoring things that have fallen into disrepair. Nope – this is a full-on new project. Mercury and Venus are conjunct in Gemini at this New Moon. This will facilitate some decisions by connecting mind and heart. Mercury is perceptive and recognizes patterns, connections, and pertinent information. Venus opens our hearts and minds to a wide range of feeling states as well as to the concept of intrinsic value. These two planets are also conjunct the asteroid Vesta, the goddess of the hearth and keeper of the sacred flame. Vesta has kept the fires of the human heart and mind for thousands of years. Honor this conjunction by heeding your desires for a new, more potent, and ultimately deeper and more resonant experience of life.
This is what we are facing now – a HUGE bend in the road. It’s so big that we can’t see where the road began or where we will be when it straightens out. How do you want to change your life? The Sun and Moon trine Saturn in Aquarius at this New Moon. Saturn is currently retrograding back into Capricorn, his sign of rulership – but he will be re-entering Aquarius on December 17, 2020, staying in that sign for two and a half years. Saturn has the power to manifest and secure a new social configuration. So here we go.
Begin to construct your future reality NOW. If there was ever a time for dissolution of the old and the implementation of the new… It is NOW. Don’t deny your instincts and intuition. You know what you want. With The lunar nodes in Gemini and Sagittarius – well let’s just say that the Universe is right on time. Just like it always is. And maybe decisively moving forward isn’t as hard as you think it is. Maybe all you’ve gotta do is get real, be honest, make some final decisions, and sync-up. Think on it. But don’t think too long…
See you on June 5 for the Sagittarius Full Moon Lunar Eclipse.
