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.

Update: What just happened?!

Long-time readers here will appreciate seeing this update from a guest on Neptune and the Oak back in June 2014. So very happy for you, Veronica!

The Sacred Architecture of Here and Now

It’s been four years since I began this journey through the blog-o-sphere and about three since I’ve contributed anything to this space. I stopped posting in 2014 because I realized that my ego had grown too attached to the 365-Day Creativity Challenge I committed to. The challenge was a wonderful learning experience and since then I’ve grown so much as a writer, design professional, and person. Now, for some reason, it feels right to come back.

The year is ending with a bang:

  • One month ago I moved to Costa Rica.
  • Five days after moving to Costa Rica I met an integral designer on a bus who needed an architect for a climate park project with the University of Peace and in less than a week I had the job I was born for.
  • Saturn moved into Capricorn a week ago, initiating me into my first Saturn return.
  • Last Friday…

New Moon: 26 Libra 35

Straightening Crooked Lines

There’s a lot of focus on the opposition of the outer planet, Uranus, on this new moon and certainly the Sky God packs a walloping current. If you have natal placements within range of these degrees in any of the cardinal signs, you are going to feel it…and yet, I am reading a notably cooler and more composed response will be forthcoming. Nice!

The outer planets are always grinding an agenda, continually vibrating a subliminal frequency; like a constant element in the crock pot supper. Over the course of experience, we learn to adapt and cope, to prioritize our various senses of concern and urgency. At this time of mental and emotional reboot, I think we’ll find ourselves pleasantly surprised at how well we merge with or deflect Uranian energy.

Venus is THE boss in Libra and particularly disposed to a balanced emotional state. Those that want to center and rest themselves will find satisfying segments of Space. Those that pursue clarity on next steps will receive a sign, appealing or not.

Saturn in Sagittarius gives this seed-planting time solid under-girding. Libra is pro-active and the apple of Teacher’s eye. Current lesson themes cover more than bricks and mortar. We need to care about the structural integrity of all of our close connections. Is that bond solid/compatible long term? Also, Saturn is particularly willing to hear cases for bridge-building outside of the norms. That doesn’t happen so often!

Whatever may spur you or an Other to wish for and launch a new course as pertains to matters of union, ethics, aesthetic/personal appearance, a more just/fair/truthful value system Becoming Reality will matter far more than the opinions and antics within The Group. For those within range of influence and their loved ones, this spur is a long time coming: NOW is the time for practicing new and/or updated forms.

magical magnetism to you this new moon,
