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)

Lunar Eclipse: 22 Leo 28

leofmeclipse11feb17

 

Stars in Our Eyes
This month, the Play of Life (in which we are all starring in our hero’s journey) debuts its first installment in a series of scenes concerning the Leo/Aquarius axis. Leo symbolises our inner child at play, fixed attention and brow etched with concentration on that which brings us joy, fulfillment, healthy pride. And isn’t the beautiful nature of a child to instinctively – joyfully –  share, display, offer the fruits of that labor to all the world as he or she encounters it? The world is so big and unfamiliar but the lion-hearted are fearless, motivated by a purity of intent…why wouldn’t everyone else love this, too?
From now until summer’s end, we can be in various stages of rehearsal and performance, honing our craft to find that sweet spot wherein the work we invest with heart and soul and the wants and needs of the greatest potential audience can meet. The chemistry perfects. Now, with all these lessons in ‘flexibility mindset’ hopefully hardwired in, is the time to start having fun re-imagining what that might look like in this morphing era.
Now the Lights shine across that sea of peoples and upon our prop boxes and stage set. What character facet of identity should be cut? Who will be your cast mates? Should you be the director or, for now, be directed? Maybe you need an agent, new logo or signature piece.
Don’t squander this energy on fretting about what’s missing – and I really mean that. Of course, bits and bobs (and ok, a chunk or two) are missing, but you possess All the Imagination You Need to work with what you have and the innate, instinctive, primordial wisdom to seek out the best you can find for the bit, bob and chunk components. You will know who and what to pursue and to let go of – but you have to get out there  and breathe where the fresh creative winds are blowing…just over there a few steps out of your comfort zone. 
Ah! I see you are already on your way, O Fearless One. May the fire trine bless your socks off. 🙂

New Moon: 7 Sagittarius 43′

 

cyprus-nm-29nov2016

 

The Sabien symbol for  7-8 deg Sagittarius:

Within The Depths Of The Earth New Elements Are Being Formed

***

A new moon is the perfect time to set an intention in keeping with its purview of the space. This new moon covers 2.43′ – 12.43′ Sagittarius. Checking your wheel for which house/s of life experience this covers and coming up with a statement of intent on these matters is a wise, judicious, beneficial, faith-exercising and mind expanding thing to do. 🙂

Tip: your level of awareness in these matters will also inform your assessments concerning value exchanges, emotional or material, with others. Intend to expand your awareness!

Full Moon: 22 Gemini 26

full-moon-gemini-dec2016

 

 

 

A 5-star Tip From Gray Crawford: The Full Moon in Gemini is a gateway into the first exact opposition between Jupiter and Uranus in their current cycle, as in the dark Moon of the forthcoming waning lunar cycle Jupiter will form an exact opposition with Uranus on 26 December 2016.  The opposition between Jupiter in Libra and Uranus in Aries, with Saturn in Sagittarius forming a trine to Uranus and a sextile with Jupiter, is one of the dominant aspects of astrology in the year ahead.  We are only at the beginning of getting a sense of what these transits will mean for us in our lives, and although there are already signs of potential meaning there is  such an unexpected, shocking quality to Uranus that becomes strikingly catalyzed through an opposition with Jupiter, that its impossible to know fully what to expect given that experience can rapidly shift and change with sudden developments that come seemingly out of nowhere.  In the tension between the opposition between Jupiter and Uranus, it will be fruitful to make space away from relationships in order to attune within to everything being activated from external sources.  There is dynamic inventiveness found within these aspects to express into all manner of creativity that needs channels of release that will support its flow, rather than projecting it at walls of resistance that will only block and repress it.
