ASTROLOGICAL UPDATE: NEW MOON IN GEMINI JUNE 4, 2016
This New Moon falls in the sign of Gemini, which is the quintessential Air sign. The sign Gemini is ruled by the planet, Mercury, the Messenger of the gods. Our ability to think and communicate (whether written, spoken or telepathically) allows all humans to learn, disseminate knowledge, and to evolve in conscious 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 creativity with rationality will become the “new normal”. We are moving into a new cycle where the source of all creation lies within us.
Gemini teaches us that words are powerful. They can create new worlds or destroy them. Technology has its uses, but with it comes more stress. Scientists have measured that the more we think a particular thought, the deeper the pathway in the brain is imbedded. Repeating mantras and saying positive affirmations now have a sound basis in scientific fact. Practicing meditation and yoga has been proven to lessen physical anxiety. 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.
All New Moons signal new beginnings; we are sowing the seeds for the next cycle. This is the perfect time to declare your intention over the next two weeks and to become fully aware of how your mind creates your reality. What do you really want to create with your thoughts and words? “As a man thinks; so he is”.
Planetary Pictures: Mutable Grand Cross:
This New Moon in Gemini links up with one of the most important alignments of 2016: the Mutable T-square between Jupiter in Virgo , Saturn in Sagittarius and Neptune in Pisces. A Grand Crosses signals a huge shift in evolution; but growth is never without challenges. We are at a turning point in consciousness with the New Moon in Gemini holding the “keys” to the resolution of the squares inherent challenges. How can we think out of the box? How can we come up with new solutions to old problems? If our minds can remain “open” and curious without falling into blame and judgement; and without endlessly replaying the same old negative thought patterns, we pass the test!
Venus Conjunct the New Moon: Venus now makes a close aspect with the Sun and Moon in Gemini. This is harmonizing aspect of Venus is a very welcome antidote to mental stress and worry. Take time to enjoy activities with friends, to socialize and to communicate your thoughts and feelings with others. Venus in Gemini likes to have fun!
The parts of the body ruled by Gemini are 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 all the incoming “chatter” can take quite a toll on our nervous systems. Geminis, in particular, may feel like they are on “overwhelm”, so try to spend a few hours each day “unplugged” from your media and computer devices. What “feeds” your brain? Give yourself a brain boost and try learning something new over the summer months: register for a class or read something inspirational. Journal writing, reading, and enjoying a good movie with friends are all great options for exercising your mind, and all can be enjoyed without electronic static. Wherever the sign of Gemini falls in your chart (by 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 that involves children (books, music, etc.). Gemini in the 6th shows a gift for working in the communication or writing fields. Gemini in the 7th usually attracts a youthful and/or intellectually stimulating partner. Having more than one relationship or marriage is not unusual , if you have Gemini in the 8th house, as this usually goes along with an early curiosity about the “birds and the bees”. Gemini in the 11th house likes to join groups that are socially aware and diverse. Gemini in the 12th house is not exactly the “social butterfly” of the zodiac, but you may enjoy listening to an audio book or educational CD as you drive to work, or registering for an online writing class.
No matter where Gemini falls in your chart, this New Moon is a great time to explore your universe; learn something new; share your ideas with others, and have a little fun along the way!
