New Moon in Gemini
May 25, 2017
In less than four weeks, spring will officially be over, and we will be blessed through the summer solstice. But we might as well call it summer as the weather pattern has shown us that heat is coming. At the same time, we can officially wave goodbye for now to Mercury Retrograde and get “back to life, back to reality”-soul-to-soul.
The new moon in Gemini will void our skies on May 25, 2017 at 3:45pm EST and 12:45pm PST. It won’t be anything dramatic; it will be subtle at 4 degrees in Gemini depending upon the orb. Also, this will affect early born Geminis and all those that have early degree Gemini planets in their charts.
This moon has mixed results, one aspect according to Vedic Philosophical Ayurvedic Theories (VPAT), Mars has already entered Gemini around the 17th and continues to be there until end of July. Gemini loves to talk and they can be quite friendly by nature, therefore Mars being in Gemini is not so bad. Mars has a positive interpersonal relationship with Guru (Jupiter), Chandra (Moon), and Suruya (Sun). Thus, the new moon in Gemini will be dancing with Jupiter. This means that not only can you evoke something new that day but possibly something new plus one.
By now you are probably scratching your head or rubbing on your chin thinking o.k what’s wrong with that? Oh no, there is nothing wrong with that. But Gemini’s do not like bad news; they hold up their hand and do a “whatever” a lot when they hear it. But, it must be told.
On the same day, we have double layer chocolate cake with New Moon in Gemini and Mars in Gemini, with Jupiter as the frosting. The problem is that someone put paprika and salt in it. Shukra (Venus), often referred to as women or love, is crashing through, and creating a disturbance of other voids in the sky. Love and money could cause fixation, power struggles, and dead end relationships that will burn out or go up in smoke. Then a day later, here we go again. Mars does not get along with Saturn, resulting in another clash which will cause difficulties, barriers, and postponements. To put it nicely, we baked a cake, and baked it again and again, and we just could not figure out what was wrong. Have you ever try telling Gemini to stop doing something? Well, they might as well sit down and try again later.
Perhaps when things move into the first week of June it may be better. All mutable signs are encouraged to keep their cool if communication is not resolved in the next two weeks. If not resolved, don’t expect it to happen until first week of June.
The closer to your birthday the moon falls, the more intense the changes. Many of you may begin to feel this as early as 5 days before. However, even if your birthday does not follow the New Moon, it is advisable that you look clearly at your astrological chart to see how you will be affected by the New Moon. This can be done by contacting my recommended astrologers Lee Stillwater or Leslie Hale.
The New Moon signals a time of manifestation. There is a desire to search and begin something groundbreaking. The new moon begins a new cycle and is the seed of the beginning lunar cycle.
The chart of the New Moon is the key to opening doors for the coming lunar month. The New Moon is an asking (evocative) time, and a time to formulate what our requirements are permitting, according to the forecasts available (through Gemini this month). There may be exaggerated, twisted conduct patterns within yourself or those around you.
With the Gemini influence of seeing both sides of everything, we feel more supple, changeable, and garrulous. It is a good time to compose, take care of errands that remind you of mathematical problems, make speeches, conduct demonstrations, or just let philosophies fly through the clouds. Educational pursuits and mind competitions may become more used to justify emotions. An impetuous tongue may hastily express things that are only true for the moment.
A constant need to direct your feelings will allow communication to flow. This will encourage the reasonable solution for any emotional struggle by jumping right into providing a helpful attitude. Feelings may switch on and off, whereas numerous characteristics of a condition may force the bending and adjusting to others. This type of energy could make people appear indecisive or two-sided, but is really the sign of an open mind. Fostering others by remaining welcoming in communication will generate an urge to keep in closer contact with a motherly figure.
The Gemini moon arouses your interests. Thought-provoking ideas appear continually, like doors opening to expose yet other doors. Now is the time to make friends, perhaps via e-mail or telephone. Discover your garden, learn from it, but don’t plant.
The Moon in Gemini also brings time of communication and flexibility. People may feel very easy about being intrusive. This is a time to follow academic interests and to take care of communications, both verbal and written. Like the Twins that symbolize Gemini, people may be able to see both sides of a problem, but they may also be inconsistent and fidgety, unable to make up their minds. It is my suggestion to bring out those aspiration papers again; cross off the ones you have already have changed and make new ones.
Also, I suggest the purchase a Yellow candle, carve your name on it, and anoint it with sandalwood or frankincense oil and chant the following chant: “I ask to find the inner light of my creativity. I wish for the universe to help me achieve the recognition that I desire. I pray that I may find the strength to take chances with my creativity.” Also add Psalm 7 every night until the next new moon phase. The two mantras for the Gemini moon are:
Om Shreeng Aing Sauh
(ooom shhhhhriiiiing Aiiinnnngg Suuuahh)
Om Kleem Krishnaya Namah
This Mantra opens the universal forces in your life and allows the righteous changes to occur.
These are general predispositions and in no way replicate the exact events in one particular chart; hence, they are used as place holders in VPAT. It is my suggestion for the latest up-to-date trends in your chart during this phase; I would suggest that you get in touch with my recommended astrologers Lee Stillwater or Leslie Hale.
Please note, I am NOT an astrologer nor claim to be one, rather, I am a Certified Vedic Philosophical Ayurvedic Reader specializing in Vedic in-depth readings. We use these efficiencies to be an inception for our readings. In the Hindu ideology, planets push the power of resistance and our free will takes the actions. Therefore, anything done through humility and nature will play a great importance in life’s positive outcomes.
May this moon bring illuminating conversations and wonderful communication skills.
