NEW MOON in GEMINI!
Welcome to the Gemini New Moon! The exact moment of this lunation is 12:44pm PDT and we are in the most fertile time now, building up to this partile. That’s 8:44pm in London and an hour later in Pretoria. For those of you down under, Sydney receives this New Moon at 5:44am on Friday morning.
Any discussion of this month’s New Moon in Gemini must begin with the Finger of God being created by Mercury, Neptune and Jupiter. While this transit doesn’t actually come into play for another few days, there is a direct connection between the intention-setting trajectory that all New Moons contain, and the guidance and navigational mechanism of the Finger of God that follows it. A Finger of God, also known as a Yod, is a long narrow triangle created by two planets in Sextile with each other, and a third planet across the sky which makes a sort of pointer. The planets that are 60-degrees apart, form the productive nature of the FofG, the raw materials that we are working with. The planet across the way – the pointer – does the, well, pointing.
In this case, our sense of expansion, abundance and prosperity is leading the way, because Jupiter is the pointer. But it is Mercury, the planet that rules our mind, thoughts, communications, language and mental focus, interacting with Neptune, the Great Spirit, that will determine how in alignment our manifestation mojo will be. From this day and for the next week, we are getting more and more focused on the expansion we desire becoming manifest in form. The net results may still come later – when Jupiter goes direct this summer – but now is the time to put in the order for what you desire to create in the cycles to come. Fingers of God encourage small choices that we make now that have long range impact down the road.
Gemini is one of the signs ruled by Mercury, and since Mercury is the fastest moving planet that is creating this Finger of God, this New Moon and this planetary opportunity to focus our intentions are powerfully working together to help intensify and direct seeds we plant during this lunation. Gemini energy is dual in nature and in a way, this is the mansion that invented the idea of separation. By that token, it is also the place where the wounds of separation can be unified and healed. Such is the benefit to honoring a New Moon in this sign. We must fine tune exactly what we want to create during this passage, for when you truly know what you want, the Universe can step forward and help you manifest your desires.
There is also a Square between Venus and Pluto as part of today’s landscape. When Love and the Shadow are in play, matters of self-esteem are usually part of the landscape. Venus is currently in Aries, where she is less than comfortable. This requires us to take that extra bit of effort required when we are asked to stay loving in the face of what appears to be unloving circumstances. In the conflict and obstacle geometry (Square) with the Lord of the Underworld, today might be fraught with challenges to our staying Heart Centered from all fronts, inside and outside of us.
The benefit of this is that when we go deeply into a loving space under this influence, we can be taken to a profound place where we know that NO MATTER WHAT IS HAPPENING, Love is all there is. In order to truly live in this space, however, we have to be comfortable dropping into some pretty uncomfortable territory. Allow yourself that luxury and trust that as you dive into pain, grief, judgment and separation, you can emerge unified and restored. Purification is one of the things that Pluto has to offer, and he is offering mightily during this New Moon. The challenge is that what you must go through in order to receive what is being offered, might be scary at first.
Gemini is an air sign, so turn to writing as your go-to tool for honoring this New Moon. Set powerful intentions and let them come from a very deep place inside of you where you most vulnerable desires lay dormant within you, waiting for the chance to emerge and sing.
