Gemini New Moon

Gemini New Moon - Intellect vs. Emotion

"Don't believe what your eyes are telling you. All they show is limitation. Look with your understanding, find out what you already know, and you'll see the way to fly."

— Richard Bach

The Moon 'decreases in light' all week, ahead of Saturday's Gemini New Moon (9:36 PM PDT 26° Gemini), which is conjunct Juno and in a tight square to Neptune. We continue to deal with ripples from last month's Mars/Jupiter/Pluto fixed-sign T-square but the effects wane, along with the waning lunar cycle, replaced with a somewhat nervous impatience and uncertainty. Mercury arrives in it's home sign of Gemini at the beginning of the week, which certainly encourages us to talk but, in this environment, we don't seem to have many filters and our focus is likely to scatter. Although there are various moments of seeming upheaval or disruption, we are essentially just looking to make stronger connections with others. We are also continuing to struggle to find a definitive sense of direction. Saturn is slowing down all week to station retrograde just ahead of Saturday's New Moon. We are faced with an ongoing challenge to find some way to blend material and spiritual reality or, in other words, blend inspiration with tangible effort. Saturn's retrograde motion in Pisces forces us to develop an inner sense of self-worth and value, no matter what is seen as tangible, material progress. Pluto retrogrades back into Capricorn, which further increases the stationing Saturn's potency. We may feel that we are moving backward somehow as we take one more look at the Pluto in Capricorn era. In essence this period is something like an archeological exploration of the 'ruins' of past structures that are no longer relevant but may still hold important clues that can show us how to build a better future. For the most part, we're engaged in processing our short-term and long term past and Mercury arrival in Gemini can help us to connect with others in order to accomplish that processing. But once we reach Saturday's New Moon, we begin to gain a rather troubling awareness that much of what we have processed — what we have begun to see and understand — is actually beyond description. With Juno so close to the New Moon, there is heightened sensitivity to any demand that we fully and specifically explain ourselves and the tangible work that we have done to pursue our vision. But the chaotic atmosphere doesn't really lend itself to clear explanations or any sort of clear, articulate expression. The challenge of blending spiritual and material reality is really just understanding how to blend faith (in ourselves) with hard work. We will need to hold fast to that faith and not give up on ourselves — or the imperfect material world around us — as we continue to seek clarity of purpose and a clear way forward.

Sunday's shifts may seem to come out of nowhere. While we're inclined to start talking, we may only see reckless self-centeredness with few filters to temper our 'open mouths'. We have a better chance of stabilizing communication with some humility on Monday. We can begin to recognize that we need a more balanced approach to our discussions. Emotions rise and fall on Tuesday. Ruffled feathers are soothed in the afternoon. The 'angst' of the last few weeks is finally subsiding. Nervous impatience on Wednesday has us struggling to stay focused. Connecting with others seems to be our primary goal. There are opportunities to display some hard-won wisdom on Thursday. The goal is to process some of our past challenges in order to leave them behind and move on. A destiny force is at work on Friday. There may be karmic relationship hurdles to overcome. The need to blend spiritual and material reality feels especially urgent in Saturday's chaotic, confusing environment. We are sensitive to any demands that we explain or detail our work or our efforts.
