GEMINI NEW MOON – 13 JUNE 2018: The Message is Crystal Clear

New Moon in Gemini May 2018


The New Moon takes place in 22°and 44’ of the intellectual Sign of Gemini. It strongly affects Gemini and Sagittarius Signs and also Virgo and Pisces Signs which are born in the third decan, as well as those having personal planets, points or their Ascendant, near the 20° -24° degrees of the Mutable Cross.

A rather quiet and at the same time eloquent New Moon takes places on the night of the 13th of June. This ambivalent state of affairs that this New Moon is having, quite fitting to the Gemini Sign (!), is the result of two things.

Let me explain.

This New Moon in Gemini is happening as the Sun and the Moon are meeting at 22 degrees of the Sign and again start another synodic cycle. The Sun in astrology symbolizes our very existence, our consciousness, our self – expression. The Moon is symbolic of our feelings, our psyche, our intuition and the subconscious.

Gemini is a Sign that makes information known, it communicates. Rather fitting it does something more than communicating. Gemini exchanges.

Verbal, mental, written, digital or physical bits of information are given and others are received and Gemini through this process, as a mutual Sign, reaches out towards others and understands them and itself.

Within this mode of information processing, the Sun, our very existence, is aware of the facts and the pros and cons of the situation. Our need, with the Moon in Gemini, is to express ourselves and our feelings and this is the proper time to do it since we have realized both facts and needs.

Every New Moon is such a realization and when the New Moon happens in the Sign of Gemini this realization becomes a message.

 

This New Moon is the process of conceiving of an idea,

of thoughts formed, of opinions shared.

It is the start of a new cycle of communicating with important others.


 

Gemini New Moon

 

The very unique characteristic of this New Moon in Gemini is that, if we look at the chart, there are no major aspects formed with the New Moon (the Sun and the Moon).

One exception to this, might be the waxing square of the Sun to Neptune, an aspect that has reached precision one week before the New Moon, but which now is separating, while still having a lessened effect.

So we may have to be a little cautious so as to shape our message free of any misconceptions or idealizations. We have to ponder on any new ideas with our heart free of muddled feelings and with our sense of purpose firm and not swayed.

But apart from this separating aspect, this New Moon is clear of other interventions.

This lack of other aspects is very important, because the message that this New Moon is having for every one of us, is not colored by any other planet.


This New Moon becomes a crystal clear message. 

 

A message within, that we clearly hear, understand in an intuitive way and then clearly articulate.  

A message that is the solely result of the coming together of our intellect (Sun in Gemini) with our spoken heart (Moon in Gemini).

 

A message free of other interferences.


This intuitive character of the process of both forming the message and of communicating it, is the result of yet another astrological factor.

The ruler of the New Moon in Gemini is planet Mercury, placed at 2° of Cancer.

Through its place in this sensitive and intuitive water Sign, Mercury operates with emotional intelligence and with increased care in what and how something is conveyed.

Mercury in Cancer brings heightened emotional context to our message while at the same time infuses it with sensitivity.


Words are chosen carefully, the speech is soft,

we do care and we also take care what we are saying and how we express our opinions.


Mercury is also in a sextile aspect to Uranus in Taurus, an aspect that bestows freshness and ingenuity to all intellectual processes and brings practical insights.

Mercury ruling the New Moon and its sextile with Uranus is the amplifying quality in the simplicity of this New Moon. The New Moon’s message is simple and clear, but at the same time is so filled with emotional awareness and has a caring quality, that speaks volumes.

 

That is why this New Moon in Gemini is a contradiction as all Geminis and is at the same time both eloquent in its simplicity and quiet in its clearness.

Because it is a New Moon that does not have to shout to make a point or to be heard.

Marshall McLuhan was a famous media theory professor who has coined an expression that is very descriptive of this New Moon.

“The medium is the message” – Marshall McLuhan

 

Under this New Moon every one of us becomes a medium transmitting one’s very essence and since the message is crystal clear, this New Moon in Gemini becomes

the key message of our own selves.

Full Moon in Cancer

FULL MOON IN CANCER – 2 JANUARY 2018: Tender is the night

Full Moon in Cancer


The Full Moon takes place in the 11th degree of the Sign of Cancer. It affects the Cardinal Signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn) that are born near the end of the 1st decan or near the start of the 2nd decan or those having personal planets or their Ascendant near the degrees 9°- 13° of these Signs.

Full Moon in Cancer is a motherly soft moon that will shine brightly on the night of January the 1st and towards the early morning hours of January the 2nd.

The Moon from her home Sign of Cancer will be exactly opposite the Sun in Capricorn making this the first Full Moon for 2018.

This is a Full Moon and as usual our feelings will be intense, lit up by the Sun in Capricorn, but still, they will be gentle and kind.

The Moon in Cancer brings out our sweetest emotions. Care, tenderness, the need to nourish our loved ones, deep intuition, memories reaching from the past, are some of the possible manifestations of its lunar energy.

A Full Moon that takes places in the Sign of Cancer asks us to find a balance. On one side we may need to be accomplished and respected while on the other our emotional voice whispers softly of our need to feel safe and loved.

This particular Full Moon intensifies this tension even more, since Venus conjunct the Sun is also opposing the Moon. This means that we want to have a respectful social life, with success and money (Sun conjunct Venus in Capricorn), but deep down, our root need, is to share affection and to really care for someone.


This Full Moon is posing to us a dilemma very similar to the one that the hero in the “Great Gatsby”, the masterpiece novel of F. Scott Fitzgerald, was having.

Success and money were great, but they were nothing more than the means to just partying, while he secretly longed for his past love, for the tender kiss and the family that may have been.


This full moon may bring such a longing.

Hopefully we have laughed and we have partied during the Christmas season, we have enjoyed home and family and we will continue to do so for some days before we are to go again on the rat race, to duty and responsibility, to effort and hard work.

Some of us may on the other hand may be facing the New Year without having a work, or a lover or the means to party and for those, the need to be nourished is much stronger and also practical as well as psychological.

Such concerns will be constant reminders now that Saturn has entered Capricorn and demands results.

  • How are we to ease the emotional effect of the hardships of the present?
  • How are we to accept the longing for the past?
  • How to come to grips with such contradicting feelings?

These are some of the questions that this Full Moon rises.

Full Moon in Cancer

There are some answers to these questions, or at least answers that suffice for the next fourteen days that lead up to the New Moon, because this unique Full Moon shows a way to reconcile the contradictions.

The Full Moon in Cancer intertwines the two Lights in a special astrological aspect pattern that is called “The Kite”. This pattern involves Moon, Mars and Neptune together in a Grand watery Trine, while at the same time, the Sun and Venus conjunction is the focal point of the pattern, with the two planets being simultaneously sextile to Mars and Neptune.

These all create a safety net around the full moon antithesis and help us integrate the opposition with the best possible way.

The emotional trine in the water Signs is giving us inspired feelings, deep empathy, self-confidence and motivated action and the sextiles bring about opportunities as we charmingly and boldly act to achieve our ambitions. We feel that we can express our creativity and we can dare to dream. We are assisted by intuition.


As we intuitively understand the answers come and we can start 2018 with commitments and resolutions that are the combined results of matured will and gentle emotions.


  • Yes we may need to be accomplished but we must realize that any achievement is void without putting our heart to it.
  • Yes it is easy to accept a longing for the past as long as we understand that this past led to the achievements of today.
  • We can feel less burdened by emotional hardships as long as we understand that love is not only romance but it needs work in order to materialize.
  • Yes we can patiently endure not having enough money or the professional status if we understand that real success is to care and to be cared for.

These are some of the answers that this Full Moon is wisely giving us and wise we will be to hold on to these answers for the rest of the New Year.

I wish everyone a fulfilling 2018!
