New Moon in Gemini: June 3, 2019 – What Side of the Story Do You Hear?

Early this morning at 3:02 am PDT a new moon in Gemini at 12 degrees 33 minutes.  In true form this morning was buzzing and even more so than usual as I gathered my cat for a trip to the vet, so I was literally chasing a cat this morning. How was your morning?  This new moon has an abundance of air with Mercury the ruler of Gemini in the sign at 27 degrees and 19 minutes.  Communications, social activities, short trips, siblings, students, and even your neighbors may be a bit more involved with your life this month.  You may find that there could be something within conversations or even your studies that perplexes you or has you in a fog too.  With Neptune in Pisces square to the new moon, widely by 6 degrees it still makes for some powerful illusions.  So double check your work, edit more than once and keep an eraser handy with your pencil. Jupiter is square to Neptune at 20 degrees 23 minutes in Sagittarius, almost setting up a T-square but it’s more like two squares working because of the degrees of separation from the new moon.  Jupiter is on the other end of the spectrum of Gemini, it wants to make sure the bigger picture is understood and pushes one truth. Gemini wants the facts, getting the details, the data, like a high-quality journalist questioning to get the story.  There are always two sides to the story as well, that’s duality. Do you consider different sides to the story in your conversations and debates?

Jupiter and Neptune in this new moon in Gemini squaring from different degrees of separation may have poetic imagination available for creative work.  Though do not fret should there be momentary writer’s block, meditation is useful to calm the mind to find the flow when you are ready to go.  You may find affirmations keep you centered for what you want to focus on with your imagination and heart.  Manifestation in our third dimension comes through with your heart, mind and voice all participating in the process.  Clarity comes from clearing your mind and thus a little reminder for daily meditation, or some activity that puts your mind in a gentle, calm and centered state of being.

The challenges in this new moon come from the emotions and coming up against seemingly impossible hard, cold, dry energy.  Mars in Cancer is at 11 degrees 46 minutes applying to conjunct the north node at 17 degrees 57 minutes.  Mars is opposite and applying to the south node, Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn.  Another hard-core reality check is coming, are you ready?  The South Node in Capricorn at 17 degrees 47 minutes is separating from the conjunction with Saturn at 19 degrees 36 minutes retrograde and Pluto at 22 degrees 47 minutes retrograde too. The heavy combination in Capricorn, especially Saturn with the south node in transit for a couple of months is here and continues to be the heavy weight of responsibility.  It actually goes beyond just more responsibility; it is a long process of changing a paradigm we collectively have lived with for many years in leadership our infrastructure and the way our public systems work.  This will continue through 2020.  We will see some shifts when Saturn goes into Aquarius, but the Pluto in Capricorn process goes through 2023.  The changing paradigm will start to come online late in 2020 and begin to see some new growth from changing dynamic leadership that blooms in 2021. Depending on where you have Capricorn in your chart will be your unique relationship to this measurable change unfolding in you and around you. Mars transiting Cancer right now is about our emotional well-being, how we feel secure (or not) and how we act to protect ourselves.  It also can be an active force as a resistance to the power that is on the polarity in Capricorn.  Mars is conjunct the north node on June 12th (around 4:02 pm PDT) and opposite the south node, which will be intense and volatile energy.  Mars reaches an exact conjunction with Saturn on June 14th around 8:39 am PDT. A good day to be extraordinarily calm and mindful in unexpected interactions. A good day if you see your therapist to allow emotions that need to surface in a safe environment to continue healing what arises from your conversations.  Chiron in Aries will be available for pillow punches for those who need to get it out physically and without harm to self and others.  (That day the moon will be in Scorpio too added to the emotional undertow).

The opposition of Mars and Saturn is exact on June 14, 2019.  You may find that energy you put into your home and family is a balance to the outside world of duty and big milestones you have in your public life, which is often in your career.   The north node in Cancer at this Gemini full moon is in a trine to Neptune in Pisces and in an inconjunct (150 degrees) to Jupiter.  The north node in Cancer is where we may reach for our soul’s ease and with a trine to Neptune right now our emotional well-being is greatly assisted through our imagination, our creative work with music, art and craft making.  Do you feel tired from so much on your plate for your career?  Do you give yourself much needed rest and relaxation through a hobby where you can be stimulated through your right brain?  The benefits have been proven all you have to do is give yourself the time and permission to let go of the daily grind for some playtime.  Gemini new moon is a perfect time to start a new fun project and be curious again.  It has a childlike quality that can help anyone that is overwhelmed with the realities of adulthood, that will still be there tomorrow.

Uranus at 4 degrees 46 minutes in Taurus still bringing a bit of chaos and unexpected changes to materials things and our planet earth.  Uranus really is quite the disruptor in Taurus which is slower and methodical.  Uranus seeks to liberate this material world while transiting this sign through the next seven years.  If you have any planets or angles within 0 degrees to 8 degrees of a fixed sign (Taurus/Leo/Scorpio/Aquarius) you have the liberator Uranus coming to stir the pot of what you think and bring you some surprises.  Some you may like and some you will ache for when they are no longer.  Uranus invites new growth by breaking up the old paradigm of what has been there for too long and needs new energy and form.   Where is Taurus in your natal chart?  Where are you being stirred and liberated from old habits?  Know yourself with keen insight by your astrology, you will know what is in the cosmic weather report of your own life.

Venus is gliding through Taurus at 23 degrees 7 minutes.  She is in a 120-degree trine aspect (just 1 degree under) with Pluto in Capricorn.  There can be beauty revealed when the old is cleaned away and the new is revealed.  Have you seen where something has been refurbished and you were in awe of the result and how beautiful it looked to you?  I think of any structure or even something like a car (Gemini) getting a remodel and how lovely it is when the project is completed. Perhaps you are putting money into some structure or refurbishing something old to bring it new life and beauty. This is where my thoughts go considering Venus in Taurus in a supportive trine to the changing dynamic of Pluto, Saturn and south node in Capricorn.  Be mindful though of what real-value is throughout any restructuring project, you do not want to over-do it and be wasteful of your resources. Maybe this month you invest in something you own, such as your house or car and add something through a small project.  Bringing beauty into our lives enriches us beyond the surface level, there is something it stirs within our souls of our divine nature and connection with beauty around us as a reflection of the beauty within us.  May the beauty around you inspire you to bring out beauty wherever it is to be shared with the world.  Namaste. Bless this moment.
