The new moon will be exact at 9 degrees of Gemini on Monday, May 30th at 4:31 am PST and 7:31 am ET.
Gemini is an air sign that is associated with quick-wittedness, social butterflying, communication (social media), gossip (:/), arms and lungs. This is a good time to set intentions around these areas of your life. If you are too shy to talk, consider doing some wild arm-waving dance moves (either way, The Social). No gossiping to reduce? Lighten the load on your lungs and quit tobacco with our help ;). Try to get out in the fresh air and enjoy the freedom that the outside brings us as we deal with the seemingly never-ending battle with COVID.
The ruling planet of Gemini is Mercury, its placement is significant for understanding the new moon. Mercury is currently retrograde in late Taurus, trine to Pluto in retrograde in Capricorn. Mercury is also square to Saturn in Aquarius. I see this as conservative thinking (Mercury in Taurus) working in harmony (trine) with the corrupt government (Pluto in Capricorn). This is at odds (square) with a collective need/desire to create new societal structures that are more progressive and humanitarian (Saturn in Aquarius). Because Pluto is about to leave Capricorn and enter Aquarius (March 2023 preview/the "for real" January 2024) I see the power being transferred to the people. Remember we are at the Pluto return for the USA (this is a 248 year cycle). The collective feeling of frustration with corruption in British rule that caused the formation of the colonies is very similar to the situation we are currently facing. I feel that once again people are moving to demand justice. This time justice will not just be for those at the top of the hierarchy, namely white men of privilege (how our founding father's saw fit). It will also be for include women, children, people of color, and other marginalized groups.
On May 15th we saw Chiron and Venus together in Aries (read the last newsletter) and the efforts to reduce women's rights. A few days ago as Mars joined Jupiter in Aries on May 24th, we saw an explosion (Jupiter) of the unhealthy masculine fighter energy (Mars in Aries) with the Uvalde shooting. The level of protection offered for toxic masculine behavior and the effort to oppress and ignore the needs of women, children, and minorities have been shown in startling contrast this month. These patterns are longstanding.
If we want our country to be safe, if we want allpeople to have equal rights, we must take our country back. There are many ways to fight for a better world. Please join me in taking back our control and autonomy from our corrupt, capitalist leaders and their backers. Let's make the world at large and our communities how we want them to be. There are so many problems. Do what is most inspiring. It really will make a difference.
