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: 21 Libra 33

cypFM11april17

Libra is the life sector wherein we most comfortably relate on an intellectual level. It’s those situations that bring a natural pause for reflection on the actions and reactions of others, whoever they may be to us, and the effects of our own. Libra is how we strategize for justice and equality. We present our case, whether to our BFF or a high court judge. Here we use language and gesture to convey intent and draw satisfaction. The archetype ruler of Libra is Venus and to catch her drift for us personally in the here and now, we need to check what she is up to.

At this full moon, it would be very true to say that Venus is between a rock and a hard place. Relationally, we may feel we are role playing more towards one end of the spectrum or the other in our daily interactions, i.e. the Martyr or the Overcomer. Obviously, there is all the difference between these two…and it’s notable that we can be either one of these with different Others all in the same day.

However, it would also be very true to say that Venus is most potent at this moment in time and so whatever agenda or point you are projecting is sure to draw great interest. (There will, however, be no commitment made that you should count on until after the 15th; Full moons are for getting the full picture, not necessarily signing on any dotted line. That being said, any project or mission you have been continuously working/re-working on since late January should yield clear results – including contractual obligations. Memory prompters can be found here.)

Mars in Taurus sextiles Venus at this full moon and that adds solid, hard-working, persistent and fixed efforts to the agenda of the Martyr or the Overcomer. Make sure you have double-checked your position on matters because whatever you decide to do, you’ll be entrenched.

A new client said that life feels like death by a thousand paper cuts lately and that sounds about right to me. In other words, we aren’t in mortal danger but there is a jostling, a hurry-up-already vibe in the air: we’ve got this list of things to do and every time we turn around, somebody or something is slowing us down – and it stings! These are the times we are living in. You have only to look at events on the world stage. Fortunately, our own little hiccups, messes and/or crises will require far fewer diplomatic summits.

At this full moon, it is highly likely that you can find respite and harmony with that small group of Others you would define as family, with those who appreciate All of who you are. Spend some time in an atmosphere that feels secure and safe to you. Just walk right in and tell them how much you appreciate the Space they provide for you. If you can, host a Space for others. They may need it more than you know.
