New Moons tend to be rather quiet, internal events in our experience of them, unlike Full Moons. This morning’s Gemini New Moon, which was exact at 10:05 am EDT (14:05 UTC) may have felt more expressive to you — even if you have difficulty articulating the message that’s coming through; Mercury is, after all, still shaking off its recent retrograde, and many people I know are wrestling with the related challenges.
In tonight’s Planet Waves FM, I will be covering Mercury stationing direct. I opened up this topic in a post Sunday night that talks about this event’s unusual square to Nessus. The piece has generated some truly thought-provoking conversation, which I invite you to take part in. This week we also have Mars in Gemini square Chiron in Pisces. This is the aspect that asks the question, is it possible to have too much integrity?
The Moon is in Sagittarius, moving into opposition with the Gemini Sun. That’s the Sagittarius Full Moon at 12:19 pm EDT (16:19 UTC) today, and chances are you’ve been feeling some form of energy peaking in the last day or so — possibly with the sensation of being in the right place, but at the wrong time.
Our astrology this week is dominated by a potentially slippery, challenging aspect pattern: retrograde Mercury conjunct Mars in Gemini, square Neptune in Pisces. We have two different blog posts for you that offer a sense of what to look for and how to handle what might be cropping up for you as these energies peak.
We have two main themes or modes at play in the astrology this week: a more mental and verbal track (represented by the activities of Mercury and Mars in Gemini), and a more emotional or impressionistic track (represented by the Moon and other planets in Pisces). You might notice that as the next two days progress, and depending on how it all interacts with your natal chart, your personal experience toggles back and forth between these realms.
