Summer Prelude, New Moon: 22 Gemini 44

Choice & Consequence
Ah, the new moon: a time of rest for the mind and body. However, a new moon in Gemini can seem like anything but..! The phrase ‘contradiction in terms’ comes to mind. It’s a phase of push/pull, stop and go and hardly  of calm/still.  It may take tremendous initial patience to find one’s center, for the chattering din to recede and the still small voice – or two – to be heard. Further, the third decan of Gemini is ruled by the Sun and Saturn, indicating the potential collision of, ‘Let’s do this!’ and ‘Let’s contain this.’ Knowing this ahead of time, we can say: seed-thoughts watered and nurtured during these days can bring winnowing/paring/editing lessons in real time for the mercurial observer. And this will be echoed by oppositions in the energy weather for the next few months. See how that works? 😉
Fortunately, the ruler of the new moon has just slipped into Cancerian waters, perfect for feeling the value of retreat even if it can only be spared in ten minute increments. In fact, it might be very helpful to practice mini mental ‘defrag sessions’ whenever possible to aide in the medium-term pattern of friction and blend we’ll be navigating.

From Now through Summer’s Close: Collectively speaking, we will be hashing out the latest renditions and manifestations of Relational Power dynamics and Personal Spark fine tuning. As history rhymes, we’ll see a tremendous variety of trys and fails showcased in all sectors of the public stage-as-mirror.

Far more useful for each of us as individuals is seeing – feeling – our way along the copyright NeptuneandtheOaksymbolic cord connecting Egoic concerns/anxiety/wounded pride as well as confidence/success/an overly bright glow to its root within the psychosomatic experience of Me/Myself. How do I quantify my value in practical terms? Can I prove/justify it? How do I best offer/apply my skill sets to the market place and to my intimate circle? What checks have I established to insure that I am listening objectively?

Yes, we have asked these questions at key points over the last 18 months or so. Again, our ‘product’ has reached its current launch date. From here, we can expect an extended period of fixing, stationing – and the grinding and polishing that can occur when the fixed experiences repetitive outside contact. This Gemini new moon also marks a moment to ask, ‘Who consistently has time and energy for me and how can I show my appreciation/reciprocate?’ Warmth, good humor and selfless provision are on tap just outside your chatter box…in these new moon days, do take a play date when you can.

Full Moon: 8 Sagittarius 10

NeptuneandtheOak

Have you felt your spirits lifting over the last two days? A full moon in Sagittarius often provides a much-needed elevation of mindset and soul sustenance and this one is no exception. While most of us are quite busy with pressing affairs, there’s a lightness, too.
Like playful waters rising and lifting all boats, so the moon swells as Jupiter dances into the effortless flow of a water trine (emotional sustenance, succor) with Venus in Cancer and Neptune in Pisces. This can take the edge off of even the most brittle and/or weary attitude.
The Sabien symbol for 8-9’ Sag is, ‘A Mother leads her small child step by step up a steep stairway.’ And how fitting I find that picture. Jupiter lights up the dark: steep stairs can be quite frightening, going up or down, for a little person. Venus in Cancer is Mom to Perfection, whoever that may mean to you, personally. And Neptune in Pisces never ceases to illustrate how separation and unity/dark and light/bottom of the stairs and top of the stairs are All One when the dust settles.
If you can place this sabien imagery over your own life matters and circle of associates like a template, you cannot help but activate this trine exponentially. Are you learning something entirely new to you? Are you stretching your limits, plumbing your depth capacities? Who is there to cheer you on or comfort you at day’s end? Or perhaps you are the nurturer who beams with pride at how much someone has grown lately. How might you fit into this story-imagery?

There is an unusually palpable abundance of grace, beauty, faith, patience and hope on tap for all of us. Soak it up and pass it on! 🙂

Full Moon: 9 Scorpio 38

Urania: But it’s also my face. You see. Sometimes I have to look normal, and then I grow faces. But they dry up, and fall off, but I couldn’t throw them away. They’re part of me. So I hang on to them. I . . . I’m probably not making much sense.
Death: No. You’re making sense. You people always hold onto your old identities, old faces and masks, long after they’ve served their purpose. But you’ve got to learn to throw things away eventually.
– From Facade, 4th tale in Sandman, Vol 3, by Neil Gaiman

 

Proving Your Worth
When I think about a full moon in Scorpio, I think intensity. I think potency, revelation cypFMscorp0418with above average impact-factor; I think the cup runneth over at least a little bit. I expect the same from this lunation but with two lovely features on tap for all of us, in a kind of one-two hug, if we are keeping our inner eye on the prize.

You might be detoxing the body, cleaning out long disused space in your home, learning a new skill/job or hiring integral layers of your business out on contract. Perhaps you’re developing a relationship and investigating clarity and equality levels. In whatever life zone you are investing the most focus, it’s for a reality defined by evolution and prosperity. You’re venturing down your interactivity path and reach a moment…a moment that brings content that must be acknowledged, absorbed…appreciated for what it is.

Once you are sitting down, look for two basic truths to emerge from the state of affairs:

1. the necessity of learning about/communicating these missing pieces in order to FMscorp4_18continue with integrity and confidence and

2. the grace of timing on the grand scale of this life chapter.

Mars has surged ahead of Pluto: even as you take appropriately independent or agreed-upon-next steps, stay close in your mind’s eye to the lessons of recent weeks and have faith that your vision will continue filling out. Measured and steady continues to win this race.
