WE LIVE UNDER THE SUN & DREAM UNDER THE MOON
These past retrogrades, along with the Scorpio Full Moon in the beginning of the month have really rocked the Worlds of many. Masks fell off, uncomfortable truths and poisonous secrets were put on display, and of course the World seems to plunder deeper into chaos with all of the corruption being unveiled within the government. It’s a very challenging time to say the least.
However, it is also extremely rewarding – depending on how you look at it. With a breakdown, comes a breakthrough. The illusions that were stripped away from us have been replaced with the truth, and how beautiful the truth can be when you accept it, and act upon it.
This Super New Moon in Gemini on May 25th is paired with a Gemini Sun so to give you a double dose of truth, and to prepare you for what changes it will bring as we move into the next month. I feel this cycle of trying to find our footing again will not end until the New Moon in Cancer in June. However, even the truth you need to hear may not be negative at all, there may be multiple truths, or rather messages. This New Moon is not only about breaking barriers that closed minds can bring, but it is about sharing ideas and coming together with like minded people, creating something together, or helping one another with individual tasks.
OBSERVATION & INTENTION
Gemini governs the workplace and social settings, for its ruling planet is Mercury who oversees career and communication, as well as creative expression of truth, I do feel that this Moon will mostly affect relationships within the workplace, or even romantic ones compared to anything else.
Gemini is not an emotional sign, they analyze feelings and intellectualize them, often in a jokingly way. The energy is very sarcastic, almost playful and mischievous. You can ride this wave and have fun with your peers, or you can take offense and make things blow out of proportion. Gemini is the gossip as well – even though they are dubbed as one of the most honest signs, they do tend to exaggerate and make the smallest things into something much larger. So, don’t overreact – use your logic before an emotional response is given.
Relationships may have some minor arguments due to misunderstandings, or communication is the main subject on display. There is always more communication needed, and with that comes more trust and understanding. Share your feelings, but in a logical way that is heard, and not reacted with defense because of the emotional intent behind it. Often with these small arguments, or even emotional outbursts that don’t often get viewed as serious, do hold some truth that needs to be heard.
Gemini is dubbed the talker of the zodiac, but often they are even better listeners. Be receptive and open minded when conversing with others, or hashing out feelings – the messages you receive may be clues or insights you have been needing to tune into, but haven’t because of an emotional trigger, or you were not able to perceive it before with the clarity that is available now. Whatever the case, we can count on the Gemini energy this New Moon to help us tune into the art of communication and listening.
This New Moon is also the writer’s Moon, or is great for those creative and who enjoy hobbies. It is easy to get lost in a productive, yet freely creative bubble when passion is involved, as well as great company.
This surge of creativity comes from your intuitive power and connection with source. Gemini is the prophet - the messenger of God(dess) and source energy. Most song writers, poets and even psychics who channel messages about the future, or insights for mankind tend to be Geminis. The intuitive energy of this Moon is definitely on full force with the Sun and Moon both in the home of the Thinker, which means that the mental power along with the gut instinct, or clarity of the messages that channel through to you will be much clearer and empowering during this time.
However, you can either be swept away by the waves of anxiety that come in during this New Moon, or you can transmute it into the creative flow that will drive you into the mental and spiritual peace all Gemini's crave. This is a downside to being very intuitive - you tend to pick up the thoughts and feelings of others, and even worse, if you do not know how to harness your intuitive power, or ground yourself properly then you can find yourself all over the place with one worst-case-scenario to the next. Grounding is important if you happen to find yourself lost in a dark void of doom within your thoughts, ground and get busy with your creative hobbies. Why else do you think this sign tends to be restless and goes from one place to the next? Being busy keeps them grounded and their mind occupied.
Keep busy doing what brings you a sense of connection as well as a release in your expression. This New Moon is on your side with creative ideas, bringing clarity to your relationships through communication, and of course to help kick start something new. Keep those wheels turning!
As the first long weekend of the summer follows this New Moon, it is a great time to include others in your creative journey, or to go out and enjoy some much-needed time outside with friends. This Gemini energy is all about making friends and enjoying spending as much time being carelessly social. You may notice that you are busier than usual when it comes to making plans with your peers, or even a last minute invitation comes through and sweeps you away without notice. Be flexible, and don't be so much of a loner during this coming weekend. Get out there and play! :)
