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 Gemini 2017

FULL MOON IN GEMINI – 3 DECEMBER 2017: Uncertain feelings

Full Moon in Gemini takes place on December 3rd as the Moon, from within the Sign of Gemini, will shine bright in the night sky.  This Full Moon is intense and really difficult in regards to our emotions and relations.

When the moon is in the Sign of Gemini it makes us want to communicate how we feel.  This is all the more the case with this Full Moon, since it takes place after the New Moon in Scorpio a few days earlier. Then, have brought our urges to the surface, we have comprehended our feelings and our needs, and we have realized their power and dynamism.

Now we want to share them.

Opposite the Moon, the Sun in Sagittarius, seeks the truth and the distilled essence of all things. It makes us want to express our truth. We know what we need or we think that we know, but whichever the case we have a great need to express it.


“I feel… I understand… I communicate… 

You understand me… We both become wiser.”


How easy does this sound!

However, it will be something very difficult in the case of this Full Moon that takes place within a grid of intense, hard aspects and planetary energies.

Neptune, at the time of the Full Moon, is both square to the Moon and the Sun, with the aspect being almost accurate and therefore experienced more intensely. It will be wise under this aspect that we should first make sure what we are feeling and what we are seeking to communicate to the other persons, either in family, towards loved ones or professionally.

I wrote a little further above: “We know what we need or we think that we know“.

This “we think” describes exactly the problem, because the aspects Neptune makes contribute to us having emotional illusions, idealized preconceptions, to feel guilt for our very feelings or to project all these negatives on to our partners and become completely disillusioned by them.

The square aspect of Neptune with the Sun may also bring fatigue and weakness to both moral and body and the Full Moon by its nature brings intense emotional charging.

As if this was not enough, our need to communicate is made even more difficult, by the fact that Moon in Gemini is ruled by Mercury, who has turned retrograde a few hours prior the Fool Moon. Not only retrograde but conjunct morose Saturn can really turn thoughts to introspection and gloominess.

So we may feel the inner tension to express how we feel and why. We may have the need to share our personal truth. But within the above landscape it seems useless and it is almost certain that by doing so, will only result in misinterpretation and misunderstandings.

It is thus important to remain patient.  We better be cautious and avoid verbal conflicts and tensions, since the scenery is even more electrified by the Mars-Uranus opposition that culminates two days before the Full Moon and still remains active for a few days afterwards. This is a very dangerous aspect that may ignite disputes out of the blue.

What we need to do:

  • Every effort of communication is useful to be attempted with the detachment that Gemini has, being an air Sign.
  • Emotions we want to express or judgements that we make, we should better first examine how realistic they may be.
  • We should try to see the other side with the wisdom of Sagittarius.
  • Yes we should express our wants and needs, but we are called upon to do this without emotional involvement, objectively and by avoiding preconceptions and doctrines.

This is the difficult balance that this Full Moon is calling us to find for the next weeks, as it affects us all depending on where it fells on our personal chart.

 


Find out where the Full Moon falls in your chart

and heed its message.
