New Moon May 2014

New Moon in Gemini

May 28, 2014 1:40 PM CDT

Today’s New Moon in Gemini may feel a little stormy, the particular zodiac degree of Gemini that the New Moon falls in suggests that it might. Some of us may feel like arguing, or fighting for the underdog – fighting for a cause – fighting for our freedom. Our minds might race while we justify our rights. And the mind is tricky… some of this is real and some of this is mind-fog.

Imagine a 4-way stop sign. You’ve come to a stop and you’re sitting there, distracted, perhaps dazed in thoughts, maybe even fuming about such-and-such, maybe in a hurry, but distracted, and there’s another vehicle to your right… there are no other cars. And the vehicle to your right is patiently waiting for you to come out of your fog. He/She’s waiting for you to WAKE UP. Inside that vehicle maybe there’s music, maybe Deva Premal is playing … this car’s got all day, as a matter of fact it’s going to tail you – patiently – all day, as a cosmic favor, maybe even roll the windows down so you can hear the music.

Today the New Moon is squared by Neptune, hence the metaphor at the 4-way stop. Neptune is on our tail all day, pretty much for the next week.

Neptune’s job is to dissolve, and when fully empowered, can dissolve the veil of ignorance. Neptune, disempowered, can make us feel that we’d like to dissolve - through any method of escape we prefer.

So, back to the New Moon at a square with Neptune. Gemini wants to churn butter in the mind today. We may feel a little ‘testy’. And yet there’s Neptune patiently waiting for you to empower yourself with ultimate truth. Everything is ok.

Gemini loves a fast pace. How many mornings do we wake up, hook into our email, check our phones for text, head over to social media…… plan the day, and begin the brain-race? We can profess how crazy our lives are with an air of pride. We can become addicted to the fast lane. Scattered energy can feel like multi-tasking. This is Gemini stuff here, not saying multi-tasking is not good….it can be an art. High Gemini is a thing to behold. It’s just that when we take on way too much with Gemini, we will eventually feel a mental implosion, and then we’re no good to anyone.

Today you are invited to create a space where all the chaos can be filtered not through fight or flight or obsession, but ‘data collected’ in order to create an inner alchemy – a unification of self where we choose not to live our lives as an expression of chaos but as an agent of harmony.

Today we can choose to affirm that we have the ability to somewhat shelter ourselves from the storm because if truth be told, the storm is not going to stop. Life as a human is simply stormy at times, and if it’s not stormy for us – it seems to be for our friends, or our community, or our world in which we live. Something’s always going on, right? Learning to shelter ourselves from pure chaos can allow us to evaluate how we can find a space of creative love to heal the pain, ours or that of our fellow man.

Please, if you like, I invite you to write down affirmations during the first 48 hours after the new moon. GUIDELINES for working with the New Moon energy are here.
