The New Moon supports new beginnings and initiation. Our intentions and aspirations amplify as we tune to our hearts. We might extend our motivation to include the benefit of all. We can make wishes and heed the start of a new lunar cycle. It seems to connect with the magic of the cosmos, we delight in surrender, opening, and attentiveness. We can continually make aspirations and offerings, such as a sense of “giving away” an outworn habit.
The astrology of the Gemini New Moon lunar month highlights light touch, conscious, and playful observation. As the New Moon ushers in the start of summer, relationships, social activity, and perception take the stage. In Gemini, our gaze extends to others and our hands lift from the body of Taurus, into relationship with one another and our world. We perceive energy and language. Poetry and all forms of expression are celebrated. We can tend to communication, our shoulders, hands, arms, and lungs. We can honor breath and voice.
Accelerated insights, aspirations, ideas, and perceptions of all kinds are inspired. We are orienting towards our unique calling and breaking free of relationships and dynamics that no longer serve us. We may discover that we are unencumbered by the past, if we allow it, and if we honor whatever Pluto showed us during the recent Venus-Pluto opposition. Allow a time of release, the energy to move forward is here. At the same time, disruptions, avoidance, and impulsiveness are possible. Unexpected events, outcomes, and insights are likely in the context of relationships. We are responsible to stay vigilant in our work, practicality, communication, and integrity, regardless.
Chiron indicates opportunities for transcendence and healing around misunderstandings, hurt feelings, and issues related to family and belonging this month. Jupiter trine Neptune can support spiritual practice or lead to overwhelming escapism. As we move into summer, we need look with sensitivity, humor, and presence to our experience. We can seek to become our own healers. Whatever upsets we face in relationships we need be mindful of forms of stubborn insensitivity or habitual disassociation.When Mars’ retrogrades the importance of gentle reflection will be even more apparent. Gemini’s incisive play, perspective, and humor can help us. We can continually drop the solidity of the storyline to reconnect with the immediacy of perception.
same same, in brief:
Start with what you hear
that which is close to you
the arms around you
and how you feel
with an allegiance to our souls craving
a call to shine a unique light
we whistle while we work
freedom and the unexpected are prized
we love the eccentric and adventure
while reality mounts
it is here
our allegiance to cause and effect serves
and the departure of heartbreak of the morose kind
we can release
but we will never forget our heart again
it radiates the dawn of the world
and the tender light in your eyes and fingertips
holding me holding you
we bath in the summer pools
of spirit and energy
we perceive beyond intellect
what is here
when we acknowledge
that the world is alive with life and message
rich, sensitive, and fertile
