“Standing on the bare ground, — my head bathed by the blithe air, and uplifted into infinite space, — all mean egotism vanishes. I become a transparent eye-ball; I am nothing; I see all; the currents of the Universal Being circulate through me; I am part or particle of God.”
— Ralph Waldo Emerson

If Your Birthday is May 25
(The Day of the Bold One) | Gemini Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
Today’s New Moon is a gleaming reminder that you came into this world for a purpose, and you’re ready to live that purpose boldly. In many ways, you’re way ahead of yourself, and can afford to slow down and reflect a bit more. There’s no rush, despite the frenetic condition of the world. You now get to be one of the cool and calm people.
Written in the Planets
Much of the astrology that’s recently appeared has been suggestive of human ingenuity and resourcefulness. The Gemini New Moon seems to be no exception. (Among other things, Gemini is the first zodiac sign whose symbol depicts humans.) There are a lot of reasons right now to feel anger, information overload and a sense of being buffeted by events. There are also ongoing questions regarding how we can participate effectively on the world stage. However, in your own life, in your specific patch of the globe, you likely have much more influence than you might think. Courage and resilience are still choices, as is compassion, as is self-respect.
