This New Moon of June 16 falls at 25 degrees in the sign of Gemini, the Twins. This Gemini moon is the “messenger” that follows the previous month’s two extremely powerful solar and lunar eclipses. This New Moon also precedes the Summer Solstice (the most potent time of the yearly solar cycle). This is the perfect time to take advantage of my “Summer Astrology Specials”. Also, open registration (until July 1st) for our Machu Picchu/Nazca Lines trip to Peru this September. This is the time of manifestation of the New Earth energies (beyond the old timeline prophecies and predictions). Join us in the Heart of the PachaMama at Machu Picchu for Stargate Peru 2015. – More info on www.pachaterra.com.
New Moon in Gemini June 16, 2015
Gemini is the quintessential air sign. Perception and our ability to communicate our thoughts with language separate humans from the animal and mineral kingdoms. The sign Gemini is ruled by the planet, Mercury, the Messenger of the gods. Our ability to think, communicate (whether written, spoken or telepathically) allows all humans to learn, disseminate knowledge, and evolve to new awareness. Astrologically, Gemini is represented by the symbol of the Twins, which we can decode as the left and right brain; logic and intuition working together. Balancing intuition with rationality is the “new normal”. We are moving into a new cycle where the source of all creation lies within us. Do you believe in magic? If not, it is time to wake up. Words are powerful. They can create new worlds or destroy them. Today’s scientific discoveries have raised the bar on the human condition. Scientists have measured that the more we think a particular thought, the deeper the pathway in the brain becomes. Repeating mantras and positive affirmations now have a sound basis in scientific fact. As we look at opening up to new cognitive abilities, it is also important to realize that we are creating new worlds. Inner space, outer space, cyberspace…we are pushing boundaries in all directions.
The “heart” of truth residing within the sign of Gemini is that we can manifest our highest potentials once we let go of limiting beliefs. Gemini is the sign of the “Messenger of the Gods”. During this New Moon, our thoughts, our beliefs and especially, our words are “resonance messengers” transmitting vital information to our brains, our cells, and our world at large. This is the perfect time to declare your “special” intention for the next two weeks (until the Full Moon). There is no glass ceiling on the Truth. “As a man thinks, so he is.”
The Planetary Pictures:
The Gemini Stellium with Mercury:
Mercury, called the “Messenger”, is the traditional ruling planet of Gemini. Mercury rules our communication functions and modes of perception: speaking, writing, brain and nervous system. Our logical thought processes (left brain) are governed by Mercury. During this New Moon we have four planets (the Sun, Moon, Mars and Mercury) all in the sign of Gemini (ruled by Mercury). This is a literal information explosion of neuronal activity in our brains.
If our thoughts have power, our words have even more. What we are now discovering more and more on a scientific level is what esotericists have maintained all along: communication is not limited to our 5 senses. Telepathy… dream cognition… intuition…channeling…visions are all part of our higher awakened perception. As we now move into a more heightened planetary vibration, we are able to hold more light (more information) on our conscious awareness. Our brain works very much like a computer and Mercury runs the programming….it is time for the upgrade! However, it is important to remember than not all information is “wisdom”. Since Mercury has just moved out of retrograde and moving forward at the speed of light, we may become inundated with information and mental overload, especially in terms of “media” and the internet (both ruled by Mercury). If we are feeling overwhelmed or frazzled by the constant barrage of incoming data, it’s time to literally “pull the plug”, and take the time to recharge our psychic batteries. Summer Solstice (June 21) is almost here. Spending time in nature is the best way to rebalance your mental body. Longer days mean more sunlight and more opportunities to experience fresh air and more physical exercise. Unplug from the media matrix for a few hours every day…and enjoy your summer!
Saturn Retrograde in Scorpio:
Saturn (the Great Teacher) has just re-entered the sign of Scorpio until September 17 (just before the Fall Equinox and final eclipse cycle of the year). Humanity will have one more “test” to pass this summer in terms of recognizing unconscious fears and overcoming them. After experiencing the past two years of Saturn in Scorpio, we should all be ready to “graduate” into Saturn in Sagittarius, which signals major quantum leaps in positive thinking and new horizons!!
Wherever the sign of Gemini falls in your chart (the house position) will be activated by this New Moon. Gemini symbolizes how we perceive the universe around us and then convert it into our “knowingness”. For example, if you have Gemini in the 5th house, you may have a creative skill or hobby that you want to develop more fully (books, music, crafts, sports, etc.); or you may decide to spend more time with children over the next two weeks. Gemini in the 7th can experience an active social time. Gemini in the 11th may join diverse social media groups. No matter where Gemini falls in your chart, this is a great time to explore your universe; learn something new; meet new people. If you are not an extraverted personality, listen to a language CD or talking book as you drive to work. You can actually learn something from taking an internet, or Skype class.
The part of the body ruled by Gemini is the arms, hands and respiratory system. During this New Moon period (the next two weeks), it is important to find time to relax and spend a few quiet moments, as the incoming “chatter” around us can take quite a toll on our nervous systems. Gemini’s, in particular, may feel like they are on “overwhelm”, so try to spend a few hours each day “unplugged” from your telecommunications and computer devices. What “feeds” your brain? Junk food and trivial gossip? Give yourself a brain boost and try learning something new over the summer months: register for a class or take up a new sport. Old fashioned journal writing, reading and enjoying a good movie with friends are still great options for exercising your mind, but without all the electronic static. Yoga, walking in the fresh air and just remembering to breathe is helpful ways to alleviate mental overload.
What ideas, projects, and connections do you want to nourish and grow over the next two weeks? This is the perfect time for aligning yourself with any project or idea that is close to your heart and inspires your passion. Be creative; spontaneous; and have fun!
