Gemini New Moon
The New Moon is a time of new beginnings. The monthly marriage of the Sun and the Moon takes place in the dark where all gestation and new life forms. On Thursday at 12:44 PM PT the Gemini New Moon will be exact. Every month the Moon is reborn and we get a chance to renew our lives. The sign placement of the New Moon corresponds with the season and the unique nature of that sign. Gemini is when the seed planted during Aries and nurtured under Taurus begins to flourish. We move from the initiating fire of Aries to the nurturing earth of Taurus and now to the exchange of thoughts and communication characterized by Gemini air. Known as a curious sign, Gemini is adaptive, vivid, restless and fluctuating. The cyclical nature of astrology offers us opportunities to begin again. Although there are no direct aspects to this New Moon, however, the Sun is headed for a lucky trine with Jupiter next week granting this New Moon more ommph! This could be the start of a new creative project involving communication or social media.
The Rest of the sky
This is not a very busy week in the heavens. The only other major aspect arrives on the same day as the Gemini New Moon, Thursday, at 9:22 AM Venus squares off with Pluto. A Venus/Pluto square creates intense, difficult to control feelings, particularly those of jealousy and possessiveness. There are a few Void Moons, but they mostly come late at night. Perhaps this is a good week to regroup after all of the drama of Mercury Retrograde and the intense Scorpio Full Moon. I know I need to regroup as I am dealing with the loss of my mother and all that means to my psyche.
