WORD FOR THE MONTH
Adaptability, communication, ideas, planning, motivation, versatility, truth, listening, and imagination.
Happy New Moon in Gemini, which happens to be trine Saturn, meaning these two celestial bodies are 120 degrees apart and generally means a harmonious angle of support.
The energy of this Gemini New Moon is screaming at us to rebuild what has fallen, get back to work, and make progress with longer-term goals. Progress may be slow, but Saturn gives great patience and perseverance to us. We will be willing to sacrifice immediate gratification to meet our long-term goals. What are they? Come up with new ideas. What excites you? The energy of the Gemini New Moon wants us to share these ideas with others, so speak about it to those with listening ears.
There is a lot of mental energy at our disposal allowing us to keep busy and distracted at this time of isolation and global chaos. Sounds wonderful right? But do take some time to give your mind a break and hear what the silence is telling you. Our ancestors are giving us messages to help us get through these times, guiding us, providing clarity that is missing from our media. Be sure to take some down time to tune in. During the start of the month we had several planets going retrograde; Saturn, Venus, and Jupiter. This brings us continued confusion, misinterpretation, and misinformation. As a result, we may feel chaotic energy in our physical world, but in our inner world, we can really dive deep and achieve clarity, uncover new insights and inspirations.
Our world, for the first time is united by a single cause--everyone, and anyone, has been affected by the current pandemic and all of its consequences, ecological, politically, economically, and socially. We are all one, whether an earthworm or human, in a point of singularity in history. This is a unique situation in our human history, full of purpose. This Gemini trine Saturn New Moon doesn’t want us living in fear—hope resonates on a higher vibration. Be willing to trade in an uncertain future for getting rid of the unsustainable past.
Society is being rebirthed. Can you feel it? Vulnerabilities are being exposed everywhere. Cracks in our foundations are getting bigger and new ones are appearing. This is because the Moon represents the unconscious and this New Moon in Gemini, the sign of the twins, deals with having to face one’s shadow. We have seen the best and worst of human nature during this global crisis. We cannot keep living the way we were and expect to have a sustainable and resilient population of humans on this planet.
Change must happen and we are being given an unexpected opportunity to rewrite our future. What are you going to change? We will all collectively live differently, and hopefully, change the path of our future to one of love, equality, community, compassion, and resiliency. Or, continue to live with injustice, greed, patriarchy, capitalism, profit over people, addiction, and poverty. We are at a place of choosing. What will be your choice? Some things to consider: Do you want cheap food, or good health? Why are we fostering collapse with government bailouts, instead of supporting/funding change? What would your community look like if everyone benefited from its resources, except for just the privileged?
People are rising against a mechanistic system that is successful at removing our joy and replacing it with fear. Question everything at a time when our questioning is being suppressed. Gemini’s archetype is giving us the energy to go push through the suppression. We will all begin to feel this urge if we are living mindfully and in awareness. Are you awake at this time? Or sleeping?

HOW TO MAKE A NEW MOON LIST:
Gather paper and a pen, pencil, marker or other type of writing utensil.
Review the focus areas for this month and begin to think about how they apply to your personal and professional life.
Write a list of what your hopes, dreams, goals, priorities, wishes, and prayers are for that moment. Typically no more than 10 is recommended. Be very specific, or extremely vague.
Review last month’s list and revise them on this month’s list, if necessary.
Place your notes somewhere safe and special to you. Some tape them to a window, under a lit candle, or leave them in their notebooks on their desks. Create the space that works for you. Leave it there all month until the next New Moon.
Allow and have faith in the power of inter-connectedness in our universe to manifest your list.
