A powerful new moon is upon us (as I write it is exact) the energy of which focuses on the mental, social, intellectual functions with a big impact of relationships. This new moon is highlighted by an annular solar eclipse happening at 0 degrees Gemini, and with Venus retrograde in Gemini.
Gemini is the first in the trinity of air signs along with Libra and Aquarius and hence the identification with social interactions. Gemini is ruled by Mercury and has a natural curiosity. Gemini is all about taking in information, tracking down new ideas, talking, talking, talking...about anything and everything, and tracking new routes. Gemini is a bit linear, logical, and methodical even if they (the twins) are rambunctious, and therefore there is a tendency for finding concrete answers vs. feeling out the truth.
Yet Venus is there and retrograde. Curious. Venus is associated with Taurus, a fixed earth sign, and Libra, a cardinal air sign, and vibrates feelings! Venus influences how a soul feels about art, thenselves, what is important to their survival, and relationships; so an inner and outer relational principle. And it's retrograde meaning it is offering a counterpoint, travelling inward, working the other way.
Put these two paragraphs together and there is a powerful energetic thrust to put our mental powers to work thinking about relationships and values within relationships. Sounds good in general but remember that new moon energy is dynamic. It can go anywhere and is kind of a loose cannon. There is a mystery with the energy. Also, the answer is not always where you're standing but where you're going. Our world seems to be bound together through polarity: night/day, yin/yang, up/down, and the language of astrology is no different. The polarity point for all of this energy is Sagittarius and it is here that higher truths are developed. Through the energy of the centaur we combine all the Gemininian information and form an ultimate truth, and this is done through the intuitive function rather than the linear.
There is definetly powerful energy vibrating through our world right now. In the next month the very same principal/le Venus will be making a rare passage by the Sun (June 5th) and the first exact Pluto/Uranus square, a powerfully transormative force sure to impact both the individual and the collective, occurs June 25th. This new moon in Gemini is a gateway to some powerful forces of transformation and a good time to start thinking about intuituiting more in the future.
