New Moon: 4 Gemini 47

new moon gem4 cyprus 25may17

All that the mighty oak is now was once contained in the little acorn.

At new moon times we can maximize access to untapped potential. We have an idea/wish/dream that we would like to see become a reality…but that process is a lot easier said than done. The timing has to be right, as do the collaborators, assistants, the network, the delivery, those who cover our normal responsibilities when we just have to stay in the zone a little bit longer.

We use a lot of farming metaphors because everyone has generally understood how to apply them to their unique situation. My idea/wish/dream is the symbolic seed; I must (insert farmer chore here) for that seed or it will never happen.

And it still may not happen: that’s a possibility in what is yet to be. But just as the seas obey her tug, so the moon can indicate to us carbon-based folks the wise/wiser/wisest times to launch from the mental to the material plane.

This new moon is in Gemini and that means our mental processes and activities can encapsulate our heart’s desire as pertains to our society, our mode of interaction/learning/teaching, our handiwork, our family members and very close friends, our locale. It means we should be ready to make choices; to be flexible in thought, word and deed; to avoid the temptation to be duplicitous or two-faced; to contemplate our ability to sustain the necessary effort. You must measure which of your wishes would do well in this energy mix and select that one.

A Critical Degree

4’Gemini is a ‘crisis’ degree point, indicating that our environment is provoking a response-wish in us, no matter what else is going on. This makes me picture many little whirls of ‘conversational energy’ being magnetically drawn towards and into the formation of a somewhat singular, megawhirling mindset; the purposeful seeding of an altered zeitgeist. I am not thinking of something so big as a tornado (!); I see this as a community-based phenomenon at the moment, though as like attracts like, these various community-whirls could eventually morph into something regional, national, global.

Back to the Farm…

Ruler of the moon is Mercury, currently just inside the 2nd decan of Taurus. And not to complicate things, but…the moon is exalted in Taurus. This means that, except where necessity forces otherwise, our emotional center (symbolised by the moon) is the root food source of all mercurial energy being grown – and that center is enveloped by the Gemini (Mercury) sun. In English, this means: We are hungry for facts/solutions/mental platforms that we can use to construct a stable dwelling place for our hearts. There is an Arabic proverb (that I spent waay too much time trying to find for you, to no avail) that goes something like, ‘the woman is the central support beam that holds up the house’. Likewise, our emotional well-being is the central support beam of our Personhood. Important stuff!

Taurus rules the throat and voice, Self-possession, physical security and material gain. We could see the most shy amongst us make a seed-decision about how and where to step up and be heard; those who have used print exclusively to share ideas and network could start podcasting to accomodate commuters. The Muse will visit artists with songs that become the peoples’ anthems and visual installations that magically capture exactly how The Group feels.

A Reminder About Jack’s Beanstalk

A Gemini seedling is FAST, so we better keep a watchful eye on it. There may be a need to prune sucker shoots and limbs often in near-future developmental stages to insure a sturdy stalk and upward evolution that we can maintain responsibly. Crucially, we must face the reality that we will reap what we sow. If we are paying careful attention, the quality we are after will show itself – or not – very, very soon. Either way, oh how much we will have learned! And that’s important, too.

On Cycles…

An orientation of loving is rooted in a fundamental trust in the intelligence of the soul or psyche, that it knows what it needs for healing and wholeness to come in its own time. Outgrown behaviors or stances did serve their purpose for a time and should be honored for their roles in our lives. Good or bad, they bring us to this present moment which is curiously the only time in which things seem to happen. When we’re able to be exactly where we are and how we are, and in the present with that reality, things can change, move and flow in time.  – Erika Jones (source)

New Moon: 8 Aquarius 15

It’s been gratifying to read a lot of articles lately that emphasise the importance of cycles and of remembering that we are always in the midst of several of them at any given time. Even as some parts or persons in life may have us in standby or hibernate mode, this new moon initiates and empowers a cycle of This is Me Taking Progressive Action and here is why:

Mars will triumphantly bound into his home sector of Aries, shaking off an immense amount of heavy debilitating drench just hours after the exact Sun/Moon conjunction. The effect of this move alone cannot be overstated when it comes to how so many of us are feeling. Lethargy , disillusionment, a dispersed and incoherent mentality and even timidity, shame and victimhood will be hard-pressed to maintain a grip on the Self no matter where Aries operates in the mosaic of personhood.

The Sun and Moon are united in Aquarius, associated with both Make-it-Real Saturn and Genius Forerunner Uranus. We can plant the seeds for taking a Giant Leap and land firm footed!

All the planets are moving forward. With just a few exceptions, this is a time for applying these energies to/upon/in tandem with our cosm. Just make a note to keep in mind that virtually ALL of us will be feeling Fired Up and remember the lessons gleaned over the last year concerning how we use our autonomy, knowing the wisdom of limits and the necessity of the co- in co-creative work.

Uranus and Jupiter are in opposition. Gotta be you but you are not an island. Become more diplomatic even as you measure twice and cut once. Also, I note that legalities and endowments/gifts with a string or two attached of one sort or another are coming up a lot. Oppositions are opportunities to integrate via common denominators. If you can’t find any of those (and you checked that twice)…release that space so it’s available. Nature abhors a void so don’t fret about it for even half a minute.

Saturn is enforcing accountability, offering growth through and in spite of pain and a reckoning is due for those who have forgotten why they offered to serve.

Mercury is stepping into Pluto’s parlour. The powers that be have a proclamation, a fabulous upgrade or a termination notice. But first things first: are you the Pluto archetype in any of your various associations? I ask this because a great many people that I speak with have blind spots concerning their power. I sometimes wonder if subconsciously they don’t feel up to the responsibility that comes with it. Either way, if you’ve been feeling any of those descriptors listed in paragraph 2, watch that you don’t unwittingly become the dark side of the Eliminator and miss a brilliant opportunity for a holistic upgrade. ‘Impotent rage wears on you.’ – Jon Stewart

There is grace abounding for those with a will to be aware. First off and most obvious with a new moon is the Space to unify our thoughts and feelings. This is not the general state of affairs for the great majority of us and I am celebrating that union of frequencies particularly. There is grace in Venus in Pisces: she is exalted here and we can choose what we attract to us which automatically edits our mindset and behaviour. Which wolf are you feeding? There is grace in maintaining the status quo in terms of our approach: the marker for our best growth forward remains in flexible yet grounded, wheat from chaff sorted, know-it-by-its-fruits Virgo. As we rise daily to the Challenge – even as we acknowledge there is no map of the terrain – we can use these qualities to advance with as much confidence as is possible in these bizarre times.

Can you hear that rooster crowing? I sure can. 🙂

New Moon: 7 Capricorn 59

 

cypnmdec2016

 

Ruler of the New Moon: Saturn in Sagittarius and your natal Saturn point. What do you want to make real? How much time and energy are you willing to invest?

If initial or first step ‘building blocks’ for a special endeavor begun around the time of the last new moon are showing themselves to be somewhat out of alignment with needs on the ground, avoid extreme thinking. It isn’t really accurate to decide that this spells automatic failure OR that it is ok to paper over the cracks…take your time in all assessments.

If you have a lot of Capricorn/Saturn energy naturally, hang in there! This unsettling space weather will lighten up in the next ten days. Meanwhile, do not believe any voice in your head that tells you you are losing your marbles or that everything is crumbling. Something is bubbling up…and it is not easy to bubble up through concrete-like grey matter!  (try to) Make patience your mantra until your a-ha moment comes.

I, too, am trying to practice what I preach. I have been having troubles with the internet connection, a crashed computer – the only one with Microsoft Word software on it, major household issues and two new in-depth reading requests (besides the subscription work) all at the same time –  oooph!

I understand there are limits to what I can do well. Those limits are there for a reason, whether I understand or agree. I can only commit to flexibility, service and quality within those boundaries. The rest is not about me. This same logic applies for your situations, too. There is a freedom and spaciousness in that, you know. Cool, eh?  🙂

be well,

– weaver
