“It’s not the strongest, or most intelligent that survives, it is the one most adaptable to change.”-Charles Darwin
The Gemini New Moon is Friday, May 22 and it’s all about being human, and being adaptable. Gemini is the sign of the twins; one is spiritual and immortal, and the other is worldly and mortal. These two twins teach each other about how to walk in both worlds in order to find balance- yin/yang, death/life, masculine/feminine, old/new.
As the sign of the human being, Gemini also teaches about communication, technology, travel, evolution, information and innovation. Coronavirus has brought up lessons around the duality of life and how to adapt with constant shift and uncertainty. Thus, we arrive at Charles Darwin’s mantra: “It’s not the strongest, or most intelligent that survives, it is the one most adaptable to change.”
This is a potent new moon joined by the Sun, Venus, Mercury and the North Node, all in Gemini. Every New Moon happens when the Sun and Moon join (conjoin) in the sky. In Sanskrit this is called Ha-Tha: meaning Sun & Moon together in balance. Moon energy is your inner self, emotions, intuition, and your nurturing needs. The sun is your outer self, personality, heart, and radiance. So both inner and outer worlds are being called to delve into the duality of life and find balance. This new Moon seeds a new cycle up to the Summer Solstice when there will be a Lunar Eclipse on June 20.
That Ha-tha conjunction will also be Trining Saturn the same day. Saturn is Structure, Wisdom, and Karma. Saturn’s wisdom while in the sign of Aquarius is to keep the big vision of the new paradigm while keeping a steady, determined middle path. The wise elder may provide support for our human journey.
Mercury will square Neptune, and the New Moon will Square Mars on May 22 as well. This can be a feeling of anger, resentment, defensiveness, and helplessness- unable to use your power or to understand. Neptune can invoke a wanting to escape. This can be physically, or through addictive behaviors. However Mercury will also conjoin Venus that day and can provide some sweet communication and love.
On May 28, Mercury will leave Gemini and enter the sign of Cancer. This is a significant energy shift from a quick thinking air sign, to a slower moving water sign. Communication, commerce, and the nervous system get a little more time analyze what’s going on and then adapt, rest and rejuvenate.
The half moon in Virgo will be May 29. A good day for using your discernment to make some decisions that have been waiting for clarity. Virgo can help tell the jetsam from the flotsam. Focus on health, wellness and your work at hand. Use that clarity to start making some movement and adaptation that the New Moon is asking for.
On June 2, Venus and Mars square off in the sky- our feminine and masculine self. This dynamic energy can show the victim in Venus and the defensiveness in Mars. Be adaptable and seek a new solution or approach to an old problem. This could put you into a whole new path of collaboration if you can work it out consciously.
Finally, we land with the Lunar Eclipse June 5 at 1:25pm MST. This eclipse is on the South Node of the Moon- what needs to purify and heal. Sagittarius healing is looking at what we believe. What lies are we telling ourselves? What lies have we been told as a collective? What old paradigm beliefs are no longer serving us? Are the Law of Society in alignment with the Laws of Nature? The eclipse energy is pulling taught on these questioning strings so that they can be measured, evaluated and cut. This will be an 18-month investigation.
There are 2 more Summer eclipses: Summer Solstice Solar Eclipse on June 20 and the Independence Day Lunar Eclipse on July 4th. All of this time will test and hone our adaptability of Mind, Body and Spirit. Remember to breath.
