New Moon In Gemini – Set Yourself Free

We have a New Moon at 4° Gemini on May 25th. The New Moon is unaspected and the New Moon ruler, Mercury is unaspected as well, so we will have pure Gemini energy, curious, movable, playful, like a dandelion sweetly wafting on a gentle breeze.

This New Moon in Gemini is great for learning and explorations of any kind. Not the type of learning you get when you enroll in a class, when you listen to what others have to say, but the learning you do by yourself, by touching, smelling, tasting, making your own sense of the world, exploring life with a beginner’s mind.

I love unaspected planets. Although we can find at times the free energy of an unaspected planet uncomfortable, the unaspected planets are in fact the pure expression of the genius of the Universe. When a planet is aspected, it cannot express itself freely, it plays by the other planet’s rules.

Imagine you want to make a song, or to write a poem, but your Mercury is conjunct Venus – in this case you will start thinking “what would the others like to hear? …or is opposite Jupiter – and you start wondering “what other songs sound like the one I am trying to write?” or gets a square from Saturn – “which nodes should I use for the bass guitar in C minor?”. You see, the free expression of Mercury is blocked. You cannot write a song playing by the rules, music knows no rules. An unexpected Mercury is a like a jazz player who is not “owned” by the music, but instead is able to spontaneously express himself through music.

“You cannot tread the path before you become the path yourself” – Zen saying

Gemini rules the mind, so the New Moon in Gemini is a great time to get rid of our “autopilot”, of our habitual tendencies, preferences, prejudices. If we choose to shut down the autopilot and open to the present moment, to our intuition, we can experience the reality in a completely different way, we can finally lift the veil of illusion, and for the first time be able to see things how they really are. Trust your intuition to alert you to your true priorities and the chances you need to make.

“To the mind that is still, the whole universe surrenders” – Lao Tzu

But don’t let the lighthearted, curious nature of Gemini fool you. We have a very tight Venus square Pluto in Cardinal signs which is almost exact at the time of the New Moon.

Venus square Pluto is an extremely passionate aspect, is the aspect of “desire”. When we want something desperately nothing can stop us. Desire can turn into fascination and obsession. We can literally fall under the spell of our consuming desire and want to “get” the object of our interest, no matter what.

Although you may not want or you may not be ready to give course to your intense desires, try to stay with this energy and understand where it comes from. Something you’ve been neglecting in your life is now asking for chatarsis. What is it? How can you honor it?

Venus square Pluto can also point to some inner lies – how do you find your false comfort? In emotional eating, in excessive drinking? What about your false sense of control, by overthinking, overanalyzing, overscheduling? The false sense of avoidance? Procrastinating, saying “yes” when you mean “no” – all these false beliefs will be challenged as Pluto will ask us to face them for what they are.

Venus square Pluto will blend with the energy of the New Moon in Gemini, giving us an insatiable desire to discover the world around us.

The sabian symbol of the New Moon ruler, Mercury is “A woman watering flowers in her garden”. You choose which thoughts to water and grow, which skills to focus on. You are your own master.

Every New Moon is a time for new beginnings. Because both the New Moon and the New Moon ruler are unaspected, the New Moon in Gemini is giving us the opportunity to manifest whatever we want. Write down your wishes and intentions. Imagine yourself becoming one with the seed of intention you are planting.

Full Moon In Gemini – Let Me Show You The World In My Eyes

On December 13th and 14th, depending where we are in the world, we have Full Moon at 22 degrees in Gemini.

We are invited to open our eyes wide to a world of fascinating experiences. Open your mind to the variety of experiences and wealth of knowledge outside as well as inside you.

Full Moons are times when the hidden comes to light, when things below the surface bubble up to be seen.

The December 13-14 Full Moon will be culminating events, feelings and emotions that took place around the New Moon in Sagittarius on the 29th of November. Back then, you’ve been asked  to awaken that adventure seeker inside you.

Now, the possibilities you have invited in your life will start to materialize.

We are not only feeling ready for renewal, for a fresh start, but we also have fresh ideas on how to put our intentions into action.

We have a hunger to learn as much as we can, from every source: books, social media, experiences,  people.

We may find difficult to get our brain to shut off, because things we haven’t noticed before start catching our eye.

The ruler of the Full Moon, Mercury is about to turn retrograde in achievement-oriented Capricorn, drawing attention to matters of mind, ideas and communication. In Capricorn, Mercury is very practical and won’t mess around with things which are not likely to move us a step forward.  Mercury in Capricorn loves recognition and, and in most of the cases, he really deserves it. If you are a Gemini or Virgo, or have a Gemini or Virgo rising, this Full Moon will speak to you very strongly.

But what is really special about this Full Moon is that we have three amazing and rare configurations – a grand trine, a mystic rectangle and a kite. It is very rare to have one or two of them, but to have all three it is really unheard of.

Firstly, the Moon forms a Grand Air Trine with Jupiter in Libra and Mars in Aquarius. Your mind will be more clear than ever and you will be able to articulate yourself with confidence and ease. Brainstorming and public speaking will come so much more natural to you now.

Secondly, we have a Kite, which is actually an extension of the Grand Trine. In addition to the Moon / Jupiter / Mars trines,  we have of course the Sun/Moon opposition (Sun is also conjunct Saturn) and a sextile Jupiter –Sun/Saturn and another sextile Mars – Sun/Saturn. The influence of the Kite adds extra motivation and potential. The opposition is especially productive in showing us the “how” – what we need to do to put our ideas into practice.

And finally we have one of the most rare configurations, a Mystic Rectangle. A Mystic Rectangle forms  when two sets of oppositions are sextile to each other. With Sun, Saturn, Moon, Jupiter and Uranus in the mix, the Mystic Rectangle is a portal of manifestation of extraordinary insights. We will see things for what they are, we will start noticing nuances, and how things are connected with each other. The combination of tense and harmonious aspects produces the best dynamics for the constructive use of natural talents.

With these amazing configurations, the Full Moon in Gemini will be truly special. Let your mind flow wherever it goes, without any restrictions. Use your voice, speak up, talk about your interests and your ideas. Learn about the interests and ideas of others.

Put yourself in places that spark your interest. Find outlets for your curiosity. Analyze trends and measure data. This is a good time to check out the Astro Butterfly calendar for 2017 here

The Full Moon in Gemini will make our mind run a mile a second and will give us an insatiable desire to learn and discover. Because this Full Moon is supported by some amazing configurations, we are likely to gain tremendous insights and achieve extraordinary results. Gemini rules the cognitive processes in our brain. Visualize yourself succeeding, achieving every goal, completing every task.
