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)

Full Moon: 22 Cancer 27′

Wouldn’t it be nice if there were rules for living as simple as the rules for driving. I am thinking of the 4-way stop. Should two cars meet at the same time, the rule is that the driver to the right has the right-of-way. Should four cars meet at once, then somebody eventually takes the lead and the scene clears in an orderly fashion. This full moon energy, however, might feel a little more like ‘playing chicken’ at that intersection but we can avoid collision – or at least high speed collision – if we consciously decide to survey the elemental terrain beyond the hype that the first month of a new year can bring.

Breaking it Down

A ‘grand square configuration’ is made up of two oppositions. It may be tricky to pick it all apart now, but it is. Bear with me on this somewhat wobbly analogy…

Lets say these drivers have been aware of one another and their pending meet-up, even if only in some abstract sort of way. There’s unavoidable magnetism, welcome or not.

So, one of these two sets of drivers at the 4-way has been been heading towards this junction for some weeks now and in car 1, we have your ego and how freely it can move and stretch in relation to car 2: all the other people and institutions/groups you interact with, from the obligatory to the recreational.

Car 1 has that really cool flip switch that turns on the rocket fuel and we all (should) know by now how hard it is to think (or drive well, for that matter) when the g-forces have your head pinned to the neck support in a frightful glory. It is extremely important for us to know just how powerful our car really is: this is a year where you will have to find times and places to let it rip. Note that the pros go out to a desolate strip and put themselves through time trials and/or stunt work in prep for the real thing. Find your comparable outlet.

Car 2 is full of …well, its big and full! Think: a packed double decker. Not necessarily everyone/every theme that got on the bus in 2016 will still be a riding by end of 2017. At this moment in Time, you are called to allow your instincts to be tempered and channeled by your highest beliefs. As the abstract morphs into a clear target: If it hurt none, do. And keep this in mind: these 2 cars (which i think by now, we have determined are a fabulous set of your kind of wheels and a double decker bus) are scheduled to repeat this confrontation over the coming months. This is a primary axis of action for 2017.

The second set of cars (Mac trucks, more likely) are coming to the 4-way from very specific points; they are, or are an important part of, your ongoing Emotional Security/Practical Real-world Security axis and right now, the polarity of this spectrum hits you from within and without – and this is upsetting to both the Capricorn and the Cancer archetypes.

These two generally work very well together; they’ve been meeting up continuously since ancient times and know well the wisdom of compromise or, at least, truce. You, too, must find a way to cradle the child whilst plowing the field. Or to continue with our wobbly analogy, light staccato horn blows, flashing hazard lights and an endearing grin (as you swerve and dodge best you can around and through that 1st set of cars) directed straight through your windshield to that other Mac truck driver. Priorities are exactly that. Some thing or some relationship reaches a culmination point and both Lights will make clear your options for a continued secure course.

So…its a packed 4-way intersection and yet its component parts are not of the same frequency or duration. If you are feeling bombarded or overwhelmed, breaking it down can be so helpful. What is meaningful sound and what is static? What is clearly intrinsic to you and what is passing through?

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
