Happy New Moon in Gemini !! Lets Start Communicating !
The NEW MOON occurs in Gemini on Thursday, May 25, 2017, at 3:44 PM EDT.
Gemini’s Ruling sign is Mercury
On Thursday afternoon, a new cycle begins. The Taurus New Moon cycle ended and the Gemini New Moon cycle began. The New Moon in Gemini cycle presents opportunities to commit to personal goals that express the positive energies of the sign of the Twins. It’s time to improve our communication skills by listening to others and enjoying others points of view, rather than doggedly seeking to find that one elusive answer. This is a good cycle under which to re-evaluate our communication and social skills by questioning just how much we actually take in information and communicate in a friendly, non-threatening manner. With this potent Gemini energy, we have the chance to make important changes in our lives.
Chit-chatty Gemini is ruled by Mercury, the planet of communication. In ancient mythology Mercury was a messenger, carrying communications between the gods and the people. So in Astrology, it’s no surprise Mercury guides the way we communicate. Gemini absorbs great amounts of information, and Mercury cheers on Gemini to communicate this knowledge to others in the form of ideas and facts. As the third sign of the zodiac, Gemini rules the 3rd House of Communication. The 3rd house of an Astrology chart is where your y thoughts and communication style lie. This house identifies how you process information, the speed and clarity of your mind, and how well you can relay messages to others. Add Mercury, Gemini’s ruling planet, to the mix, and it’s easy to see Gemini’s powerful connection to the mind and and the mouth!
This New Moon occurs around the time of a Mars-Saturn opposition, and we may need to watch for see-sawing between aggressively pursuing our goals and withdrawing from doing so completely.
The Sun is in Gemini from May 20-June 21. Knowledge and diversity motivate us with the Sun in Gemini. We are more sociable, intellectual, and insatiably curious under this influence. We tend to scatter our energies as a result of this curiosity and awareness of all of our options. We are more communicative and versatile, but we can also be unreliable.
Mercury is in Taurus from May 16-June 6. When Mercury is in Taurus, our thinking is down to earth, solid, and grounded. Common sense reigns over more fanciful thinking. We communicate more deliberately under this influence, and our minds are oriented to the world of the five senses. We prefer the tried and true rather than new ways of thinking. Attention to one thing at a time can simplify our lives, but we may be in danger of narrow, overly conservative, or rigid thinking.
Venus is in Aries from April 28-June 6. In Aries, love is spontaneous and direct. The chase is very exciting to us under this fiery influence. We are bold, fresh, and a little impatient when it comes to matters of the heart. We don’t look back with Aries energy. We are not interested in saying sorry or dwelling on the past. It’s a brand new day! It’s time to make things work right now. Aries is known for a love of the chase and the conquest, but Aries love can be longstanding as long as it remains relatively fresh. Aries is blunt with no sugar-coating. This can sting, but rarely is Aries energy mean or petty. Saying it like it is is important to Aries. Desires are strong and expressed spontaneously, enthusiastically, and directly. Aries prefers to seduce rather than be seduced, to chase rather than be chased.
Mars is in Gemini from April 21-June 4. In Gemini, Mars is considerably more versatile and flexible and considerably less determined and focused! Our interests become more diversified, possibly to the point of going off on so many tangents that we are scattered and ineffective.
The old energy we are clearing this time around, comes from the events that stirred around the Scorpio Full Moon earlier in the month. This was an intense Full Moon that likely brought things to the surface that needed to be cleared for some time.
Maybe if you look back on your life from that time period till now, you will see just how your journey has unfolded and how themes may have returned in order to be cleared or worked through once and for all. New Moons and Full Moons always represent the start and end of a cycle, but often their impact lingers for months or even years. This is especially true when we have a Super Moon or an Eclipse.
This year, the Super New Moon in May is followed by another Super New Moon in June. This double hit of strong lunar energy means that things over the next few weeks may feel intense.
The Moon is responsible for our deeper emotions and feelings. The Moon rules over the unseen worlds and can bring whatever is hiding in our subconscious mind to the surface.
This can be confronting at times and can also challenge us to really make changes on the deepest of levels. The Moon also challenges us to pay attention to our intuition and the more energetic or spiritual sides of life.
As the Super New Moon falls in Gemini, it will be guiding us to focus on our thoughts and how we have been communicating to ourselves, to others and to the world.
Gemini energy is very often thought driven and often there are times where we all experience our thoughts running away from us.
