The New Moon arrives at 4 degrees of Gemini on Thursday, May 25, at 3:44 PM EDT.
Human beings are primed for newness. We long for the nascent journey. Most beginnings are marked with the new year; a birthday, a marriage, a new job, or a new home. Each month, We have an opportunity for a fresh start within the realm of our emotional lives. It is within the sentient body that we most often need to take stock, let go, recycle, and begin anew.
When we consciously embrace the New Moon, we have an opportunity for the embodiment of emotional realization. Can you imagine? The universe has graced us with 12 New Moons, one in each sign throughout the course of each year. New Moons are microcosmic cycles of the Sun which takes one full year to traverse the zodiac. The Moon travels through the zodiac in the span of only one month. That’s a lot of swift movement. Astrology is a kaleidoscope of small cycles within large cycles.
Lunar beginnings are subtle. Mindfulness of our feelings facilitates our recognition of what is going on beneath the surface of the ego; the things we tell ourselves, the matters of which we convince ourselves, the faces we present to the world. Whether we see the man in the moon, the woman in the moon, or the child in the moon, it remains to say that the Moon inhabits us as she simultaneously invites us to inhabit her.
The Gemini New Moon offers a renewal of the mind. Our intellectual world unfolds before us with vital information regarding what we tell ourselves and how we communicate to others. Gemini is the parasailer of the psyche. From this higher perspective, the drama of our life presents itself as quite the spectacle, one in which we long to tame for the sake of truth.
Gemini The Twins is a mutable air sign, ruled by Mercury. Gemini embodies the qualities of free spirit, communication, listening, learning, humor, wittiness, intellect, lightness, spontaneity, flexibility, restlessness, fun, play, and magic. Gemini archetypes include The Teacher, The Witness, The Trickster and The Storyteller.
Gemini brilliantly observes and reconciles duality. When we are caught in duality, we suffer. At this sacred juncture, Gemini offers us an expansive view of our inner complexity. Our inner twins are mirrors unto each other. This particular Gemini Moon can soar, for it is not tethered to any other planets, thus offering a more pure Gemini expression. Gemini is piloting our vehicle for inner flight. We rise above our emotions with a kind yet detached perspective. We are fueled with the lucid understanding of our own projections.
Wherever Gemini resides in your natal chat is the area in which mental seeds are now being planted. As you navigate your inner galaxy these tender seeds will blossom into brilliant insights and ideas. A stroke of genius is upon us. During the next three days, we are imbued with a sense of lightness and play accompanied by the ethereal and the magical.
Somewhere, within each and everyone of us, Gemini resides. Listen to the part of you that longs for freedom. How can you allow yourself to soar above the illusions of earthly existence?
Think of a butterfly. It is free, fluttering from one point to the next without a care in the world. It’s beauty is fleeting before our eyes, taking our breath away. Before the butterfly has attained this freedom of flight, it has incubated as a caterpillar within the confines of darkness, patiently awaiting the transformation. This time is upon us. The metamorphosis is now.
Gemini New Moon Blessings Upon You.
Inner freedom demands the rejection of any imposition that injures our dignity.
