moon-in-zodiacal-sign-geminiYesterday we had the New Moon in Gemini, reaching its peak at 18:00, Barcelona time. A new moon at 18º in conjunction to Jupiter also in Gemini, in his tour through the last four degrees of this sign, before entering Cancer on the 26th. Airs of mental stimulation, renewal, optimism and expansion, all concepts that have to do with the majestic Jupiter.

A new moon in the element Air, at a time when we are all experiencing an extraordinary Grand Trine in the element of Water, formed by Venus (Cancer) – Neptune (Pisces) – Saturn (Scorpio). The Cosmos would seems to be willing us to understand our feelings, so that we can analyze them with a clarity of mind that allows us to take advantage of the richness of our instinctive knowledge. Mercury, the ruler of Gemini, is now traveling through Cancer reinforcing this message from the Cosmos. Three days later, Venus forms a square to Uranus (Aries) and an opposition to Pluto (Capricorn), thus becoming a cardinal-T-square’s apex. Many relationships come to an end, many emotional situations, not necessarily within personal relationships, find the possibility of putting a bit of geography between the two parties. Juno completes this feeling, as it forms a square to the two Lunar nodes, reminding us that in a relationship, power struggles are as intolerable as necessary. The ‘other’ helps us express “our” internal struggles, becoming the mirror we need to truly look at the whole of our personality. The problem starts when we allow ourselves to become victims of the situation, rather than acknowledging our responsibility in that war, as if we would like to remind ourselves that in the fight for psychic and spiritual survival, we get lost often in that pitched war between the sexes. Unfortunately many of us lose the North in this fight and we forget to look in the right direction. Pallas in conjunction to Mars and squaring Neptune might aggravate the need to blame the other, instead of looking within ourselves. It is important to remember that that person with whom we fight, is our emotional mirror, and also the fact that at some point, we fell in love him/her.

It is necessary to throw some light to relationship issues and this is a good opportunity. The new moon in Gemini, helps us put the necessary distance, be it physical or mental, so we can clearly see what is actually going on. Jupiter which is located next to the lunation adds his indomitable curiosity about what happens beyond our immediate environment, beyond our neighbourhood, enticing many to run away, leaving behind their emotional issues. As if that were possible! What is certain, is that distance, at times, is often required, to see with clarity. It is important to meditate and spend a moment of the day alone, separate from all that makes us confused, so that we can find the North once again.

Neptune in its retrograde motion from yesterday, on the eve of the lunation, returns to meet Saturn, on the 11th, in the second of three exact trines formed by these two planets, the first was on 10 October 2012 and the last will be on July 15 of this year. This aspect gives us the opportunity to find a way to realize our deepest dreams, in a real and earthly way. It also brings us closer to our ancestors with their loud and clear message. Allow yourself to dream and learn to listen and decipher your inner voice.

Jupiter leaves Gemini on June 25, and it will not return to this sign until May of 2024, therefore the natives of this sign, should aim accurately and go out in search of what they want for this new moon, and the time right after it, when the doors will be opened for this sign in a unique way. Other mutable signs, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces, also have doors opened waiting for them. Use your intuition to find that desired North. With Mars and Pallas also in this sign, the impulse to take risks, looking for new adventures will be undeniable. If you are a Gemini and have been working hard toward a goal, this is your great opportunity to reap the fruit of your efforts. will Nadal win the French Open? He is of course a Gemini.

For all signs, this is a time when we have the opportunity to check the immense power of communication in all its facets. If you do any Mercurian activities, such as communication, radio, trade, the post office, writing, etc, this is the moment you were waiting for. Don’t miss not taking advantage of it.

Here comes the New Moon in Gemini and the Annular Eclipse of the Sun of this year, the Total Eclipse will be on November 13 in the sign of Scorpio. Here is the chart of the area where it will be best seen across the Pacific Ocean.

The solar eclipse is an extra powerful new moon, when for the period of time that the eclipse lasts, the Moon blocks the Sun’s energy for us on Earth. These electromagnetic, ultra-violet, infra-red waves, etc given out by the Sun, are blocked by the moon. We remember that the New Moon means the beginning of something, of a project, a friendship, a job, a situation that arises from something that ends. What starts with this new moon will culminate at the full moon of June 4th, which will be a partial eclipse of the Moon.When there is an eclipse, whatever is happening at the time of the new moon, seems to have black clouds hovering over it, that make us fear the outcome. This eclipse ccurs in the 0 degree of Gemini, the sign of the twins, the sign of duality, the sign that learns its lessons through to finding a sense of self, again and again, by dealing with the opposite, with its inner twin, with the other side of himself.
We already know that eclipses are formed when the lunación (full or new moon) occurs few degrees of the Lunar nodes. In this case the Sun and the Moon are next to the South or descending node and form a square to Neptune in Pisces and suddenly mysticism flows, and even those who do not believe in anything mystical, will secretly wonder: “What if?” When academic knowledge fails us, we trust our intuition. Science is always going behind the intuition. Even scientists before making their equations have an intuitive vision, which leads them to investigate. We know much more instinctively than academically, albeit sometimes difficult to formulate this ancestral knowledge. These are the moments where other types of intelligence take dominance, when we realize that academic intelligence is only one part of our brain and that there is much more wisdom within us or neurones conexions than we can understand.
In this new moon, the Sun and the Moon makes a conjunction to the Pleiades (seven sisters or seven mothers of the world), that are about 28 degrees Taurus. This star formation known to many ancient cultures and that have enriched the mythology of many of them and many temples seem to be aligned towards them, as the pyramid of Giza, the Parthenon, and others, invite us to meditate on our connection with other worlds. Throughout history, many people have believed to “come or descend” from the Pleiadians, the inhabitants of the Pleiades. Meediums like Barbara Marciniak, say they receive messages of these beings, which speak to us of our origins in other universes. Preston B Nichols, has written about his experience in the Pleiades after having been taken there and having been “instructed” in concepts that our world is far from understanding, according to him. I want to clarify at this point, that I have no knowledge of any of this claims, and I am merely inviting you to meditate on the possibility of realities beyond our perception, which we all know is so limited. Unfortunately, we only have a vision more than limited from where we are and it is impossible to understand the universe intellectually, so we often have to rely on intuition to understand truths beyond our physical perception and our scientific understanding, by our space limitation.
Mercury and Jupiter are part of this lineup at the last degrees of Taurus, and if we follow the meaning of these two planets we connect with the possibility of expanding our minds beyond the known horizons, because that is what Júpiter does. He invites us to leave the “neighborhood”, to venture beyond our culture and this is why in the first Jupiter return at 12 years old and the second return of this planet aged 24, many of us venture to other countries, other cultures, that will help us in the process of des – identifying ourselves of our own culture, in order to become individuals and cease to be the cultural puppets that we are. In fact in each return of Jupiter we move one way or another and enrich our perception beyond our cultural, religious, familiar limits.
Venus in its retrograde motion, which begins the 16th, 4 days before the eclipse, continues in trine to Saturn, and old issues in our relations have the opportunity of resolution. It is possible to recall old stories of love and wonder what would have happened if we hadn’t given up so easily and worked harder at them, rather than breaking them. Realizing that it was not the relationship, but our own need to escape from the boredom of ourselves. At the end of the day, we always ended up learning, that it was not the other’s fault, not even the relationship’s fault, but instead we were bored with ourselves. Often, the fear to recognize, that we are humans and not gods is difficult to bear.
