There are shifting winds this week, as the early part of the week shows us a darkening Moon that later shifts into a New Moon in Gemini on Wednesday June 13.
So for the early part of the week, be aware that you may not tend to feel “up”; instead you may feel the darkening of your own mood as the Moon darkens.
Then on the 13th there is a shift, though it will likely not be a bold shift. Remember that at the New Moon, the actual Moon will still not show any light.
On the night of the 14th or 15th a sliver of a lighted crescent will show in the sky.
So from a day or two before the New Moon, through a day or two afterward, it is a good time to go inward to meditate, pray, make intention, or to use meaningful visualization.
Expressing clear intentions through visualization is particularly effective around New Moons. And this one being in Gemini, it is an especially good time to use your mind to communicate those intentions.
And of course, a Gemini New Moon is a good time to focus on learning, teaching, collecting information, “using your head” to think through issues, or to deliver your thoughts to others.
Communication is an important theme during Gemini times, communicating through talking, writing, or any other means.
Gemini is very much about the importance of words and wording. Choosing the right words is very important in communication, as words carry so much weight in our human interactions.
It is important to remember that communication is not just about spurting out what one wants to say. It is also very much about choosing words and intonation that allows others to “hear” what you are trying to say.
Gemini is also about paying attention to details, being social, and being light and airy.
Gemini is an air sign and a mutable sign. It is very changeable, needing of many interests, and aware of a myriad of possibilities.
It can hold a lot of information, but too much info will make it feel overwhelmed and in need of being able to make sense of it all.
Gemini is sometimes accused of being superficial and petty, but is often very interesting as it retains so much important information.
Gemini is also the Twins, so you can expect Gemini to be aware of both sides of a discussion or argument. It has been known to have two very different facets of itself, and in some people that can translate into a Jeckyl and Hyde bipolar separation of selves.
Donald Trump is a Gemini and his birthday is June 14, a day after the New Moon in Gemini on June 13, which is one day after the Summit with North Korea on June 12.
The USA natal Mars at 21 degrees of Gemini is triggered at this Summit and New Moon, so what comes from this meeting will have a very strong bearing on what is being actualized militarily for the USA.
We all should know now that much shit will soon hit the fan in the greater world, and that shitstorm will help us to purge and release, to clear the way for a New World.
So just do your best to get out of the way, and the best way to do that is to not be too emotionally invested in the dramas that will play a large part in sucking people into the fears, hatreds, and primal tribal instincts.
We instead can concentrate on the bigger picture of the transformation into the consciousness and ways of the Age of Aquarius.
No matter how it is presented to us by the cultures, we are all connected as humans of the same global human tribe, all together as one family.
Diverse yes, but all together as One, whether we each know it or not.
The lunar crescent will likely show on the night of the 14th, so that is when the New Moon train of new beginnings will move forward.
It is a good time then to begin better communication with others. And also on June 14, Venus (just newly in Leo) will make a hard square to Uranus in Taurus.
So relationship issues will be opened up then. And the opportunity to make changes in old relationship patterns through better communication is high.
Uranus just went into Taurus last month in May, where it will stay for around 7 years. The last time it was in Taurus was 1934-1942. In America this took us to the last years of the Depression and beginning years of World War II. The time before that was in 1854- 1862, the transition time into the Civil War in America.
Earth shaking events are likely again, as Taurus is fixed Earth and Uranus shakes things up into radical change.
Last month in May, the Hawaii volcano erupted, and then there were subsequent earthquakes as a result. This is a great literal and symbolic entry into Uranus in Taurus.
Taurus is most stubborn about holding onto how things “have always been”. But with Uranus in Taurus, whatever is in our consciousness or life that we are too attached to, will be shaken out of our grasp so needed change can move our lives forward.
And in the greater world this is also true. Whatever remains stuck in old ways will be shaken up so change and transformation can occur.
The Empire will be threatened so that the Multipolar world that is essential for a Diversity within Unity new age can be realized.
The Military/Economic Complex holds tightly that old Empire and its paradigm and world. Its transformation through to a new economy and new distribution or world power is essential for the Age of Aquarius.
The next round of accelerated change in both our personal and collective lives will be between the Full Moon of June 27 and Autumn Equinox.
That is the time of Summer Eclipse Season 2018, a powerful time of change with 3 eclipses: A Solar Eclipse Cancer New Moon on July 12; a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aquarius on July 27; and a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo on August 11.
That will be the time to put on your seat belts for another Eclipse Season ride of Transformation.
I will put out a new video on the coming changes this coming week, and more videos or podcasts will follow.
