Am I late with this New Moon report? You bet I am. Too much to do, not enough sit and look at the Moon time. The New Moon perfects at 4:30 AM PDT of the 30th at 9 Gemini 03, and makes no major aspects with a tight orb, the closest being a square to Juno in Pisces and, perhaps most telling, a semi-square to Eris in Aries. What does that tell us? That what starts with this Gemini New Moon may be more talk than action–but that doesn’t mean it won’t affect us.
The Lunar event might seed the inconvenient energy of conflict over empowerment, especially over pursuit of a dream or creative effort–and whether because of empowerment disagreements or simply from all that irritating talk, anybody whose inner dialogue is out of harmony with their environment and/ or the line of patter they’re trying to sell others will find themselves or those around them lashing out. There may be lots of spontaneous finger pointing; remember that old saying about when you point at someone, there are four fingers pointing back at you? That’s this energy: being reactionary to ideas, assertions, plans, talk, suggests conflict between your own inner reality and the persona or thinking you’re trying to make others believe or accept. This isn’t an indictment; if you find yourself suddenly clashing with externals, it’s not that you set out to deceive anyone–it’s a signal to you that what you think you are and what you really are/ think/ or are doing is out of alignment–and we sabotage ourselves when the inner and outer don’t match.
With ruler Mercury still retro, our best course of action may be no action; instead, careful thought, a study of the actual power situation, and a revision of plans will all benefit us on direction. We’re approaching the liminal point, the time when Merc is slowing, poised to resume apparent direct motion soon, and this period always brings its own kind of stress, the kind that can push us to move forward when we’d do better to wait just a little longer.
The New Moon Sabian is, ‘An Airplane Performing A Nose Dive’. The thing with a nosedive is that pilots practice those so that if the plane suddenly does dive, they’ll be adept at pulling it out of the plunge. Are we practicing how not to crash and burn, how to pull ourselves out of Self-destructive attitudes, thinking, or behaviors, with what this New Moon presents? I think the answer might be yes.
Thank you for your patience–it’s been tough to keep up lately. I’m getting some practice keeping a handle on things–just like the New Moon says I should. Have a wonderful New Moon in Gemini!
Thank you Julie, It seems I have been the other way around, too much moon not enough real effort & without any umph. My car displayed this ironically today, new tyres needed, wont start flat battery, low on fuel even if it starts lol! Your title is what I related to most in preparing the ground for the new moon, whenever I think the Clash, the song “London Calling” come to mind. Today I have been filled with nostalgia, listening to sea shanties and Roger Whittaker (English folk singer from the 70’s) reminding me of “home” even though I left England when I was 3, then spent a few years there in the early 80’s, the land is part of me and often calls me. Had intended to return for my 60th last year, but not to be. So I have a feeling in part it is the nostalgia I do enjoy that I need to pull back on because I could feel myself sinking into lamenting what was once my homeland, not the place I have called home for the past 30+ years, in all honestly, the past few years I dont feel I belong here & have like others who dont fit the bill, recently found myself rejected by the society & people I have served for many years, but my family that matters are here & I wouldn’t be without them. So I need to find a way to accommodate both, joyfully & allow myself to miss what I miss, yet not sink the mire of sorrow. I hope that makes sense. I know I have been “homesick” since I was 3 & no matter how hard I have worked to adapt & adjust, accepted there are pro’s and con’s with everyone and everywhere, some things just still dont sit well with me, but life goes on so I need to find a way to go on, without it? I do have fond heart warming memories to be going on with, which are good enough.
Nostalgia–literally, ‘the pain of the past’–tough to deal with a bout, no matter what. For me that homesick feeling came in the form of being somewhere, and thinking of being somewhere else; it was only when I found a place where I didn’t think of picking up and going that I felt I’d found a home. I hope you find yours.
