INTEGRATION & INQUISITIVENESS

NEW MOON 22 DEGREES GEMINI: Wednesday, June 13

  • 12:45 p.m. PT / 3:45 p.m. ET / 7:45 p.m. UTC

  • Sextile Eris

  • Sextile Juno

Keywords/Themes: 

Chatty, clever, wit, curiosity, duality, jack-of-all trades, sociable, charismatic, hobbies, learning, communication, teaching, gift of gab

Collective Energies: 

As always, the new moon creates time to pause, reset, and slow down…all things Gemini doesn’t exactly enjoy doing. Instead the gregarious air sign leans more towards moving quickly, sometimes at the cost of being scattered. Pay attention to all the things that want your attention this new moon, how can you instead direct your thoughts and intentions more clearly.

 

Gemini is great at communicating, chatting, and charming. Though it can certainly show up as two-sided or thinking in extremes. A healthy expression for this sign would be moving towards the ability to hold two things at once and integrating parts that may seem like opposites. This alchemical capacity could be the key to Gemini’s magic and constant curiosity and skill at holding the paradox of being both teacher and student.

 

The sextiles to the asteroid Juno and the dwarf planet Eris suggest there may be subtle influences. Juno may be whispering to us about the partnership and lovers side of Gemini, while Eris gentle reminds us that sometimes understanding those we perceive as enemies can be a major life-learning.

 

This week’s new moon also occurs on the same day as Venus enters Leo and Mercury trine Chiron. Venus’ move signals a focus on the aspect of relating that creates intimacy with self, while Mercury with Chiron invites us into communication about the often insecure or painful parts. All three of these cosmic happenings move us closer to the full moon at the end of the month before we begin an eclipse cycle in July.

 

The Gemini new moon isn’t meant to be a heavy, utilize the air sign’s lightness and gift of gab to speak out loud focused intentions that uplift and inspire. Or try some of these other ways to connect to this moon’s energies:

 

Everyday ritual recommendations:

//Mind// Read Dr. Jekkyl and Mr. Hyde, kidding, or maybe not. Read anything, no really, just something. Other options would be to watch a documentary or a based on true life movie.

//Body// Some sort of group sport for the social aspect. Otherwise, Pilates, an option that slows you down and also makes you focus.

//Spirit// Any meditation for slowing the monkey mind, in particular one with a focal point such as an object or breath. Try the Focus and Awareness Ritual Kit, or the Chill, Dude Incense Making Kit.

//Soul// Explore your relationship to black and white thinking, or places you split yourself or others into only two categories. Perhaps it is possible to be all of it at the same time.

ADVENTURE & ABUNDANCE: New Moon in Sagittarius, December 6 & 7 2018
ADVENTURE & ABUNDANCE: New Moon in Sagittarius, December 6 & 7 2018

December 04, 2018

This Sagittarius new moon arrives after a week of Jupiter in alignment with the Sun. Sagittarius connects us with the expansive side of life such as optimism, vision, and joy. It moves us towards discovering our ideals and expanding our sense of conviction. Healthy Sagittarius energy is full of faith and adventure, while the shadow side lends itself towards arrogance or bravado. I also notice a tendency towards over-consumption while appreciating the abundance so often experienced with Sagittarius. While many may hail this as the luckiest new moon of the year, I’m dubious of that title. Like all zodiac signs Sagittarius has aspects that aren’t...

Horoscopes: December, 2018

November 26, 2018

Let 2018 be known as the year of retrogrades! Woof, it’s over. As we reflect on the past several months of twists and turns, you may now breathe a sigh of relief. December is a month of some much more manageable and tranquil astrological transits. Take some extra time on the 5th to get some rest and recuperate. The Sun will be blending with Neptune making this a lazy day, where our immune systems are apt to take a hit. Prevent illness with lots of liquids or a warm bath. The Mercury retrograde will be winding down on the 6th of the month, you can rest easy when it comes to making any electronic purchases as gifts. I should note; when it comes to big-budget electronic items, extended warranties are still encouraged since we will be in the Mercury shadow. The same goes for any

OPPOSITES & OVERTHINKING: Full Moon in Gemini, November 22 & 23, 2018

November 19, 2018

This airy full moon arrives on the American holiday Thanksgiving just as the Sun moves into Sagittarius, the sign of celebration and abundance and opposite its ruling planet Jupiter. Indeed, the air may be full of celebration and confusion during this holiday. While collectively we are becoming more and more aware of Thanksgiving’s violent history, the story itself is reflective of the two sides and duality of Gemini. Gemini’s gift of wisdom means holding many truths and ideals (key Sagittarius and Jupiter words) at the same time while seeking out information for ourselves.
