Wise Choices: Super New Moon in Gemini

Choices, communications and changes will be themes on the Super New Moon in Gemini on Thursday, May 25, 2017. Like all New Moons, this one (and its two-week waxing period) gives us an opportunity for a fresh start.

In the mental sign of Gemini, the best advice for everyone is to use the next two weeks to reprogram your mind: Turn your attention to those things you love, choosing to see the silver lining in every cloud. Focus on your strengths, not weaknesses, thoughts that make you happy versus sad, solutions not problems etc.

Though this new moon is mostly unaspected, planet of love Venus makes a challenging square to power-hungry Pluto. This just means we need to control our thoughts, and not let darker feelings like jealousy take a foothold; be careful not to obsess on matters or make a big thing out of nothing at all. It will help to intentionally direct your feelings to abundance, so that solutions to any emotional struggles are easily resolved. With Pluto’s darker aspects in check, you can use its contact with Venus to go deeper in your relationships, healing and transforming them into something stronger than before.

Check out your sign and/or rising sign below to see how the Super New Moon in Gemini can work best for you!

Aries: The New Moon in Gemini will super charge your Third House of Communications, making the next two weeks busy with a lot of buzz. Keep in mind that you don’t have to say “yes” to every single invitation; be judicious and use your time wisely, spending it on people and activities that you really enjoy. This is a great time to change up your regimen, adding routines to your lifestyle that benefit your goals. Most important, use this New Moon and its two-week waxing period to think in a certain way — be pathologically optimistic and make sure your self-talk and discussions with others come from a place of love. Trust, this will make absolutely everything in your life easier.

Taurus: The New Moon in Gemini will activate your House of Values and Finance. Over the next two weeks, re-examine and re-prioritize what you care about most and ensure your lifestyle lines up. The point of this transit is to improve your self-worth, which will help you add more value to your world, and usually this will result in a bigger bank balance. Pertaining to this transit, too, is the concept of talent. “Talent” was once a unit of measure — e.g., you’d pay “1 talent” for something. Nowadays, we exchange our “talents” for pay. Ask yourself if your greatest talents are being put to use in your current job, as that will yield your highest income potential. Make sure you’re expressing yourself in your profession — ideally with your voice — as that will result in gains. If not, use the next two weeks to brainstorm or find a better position.

Gemini: Happy Birthday, Gemini! This is YOUR New Moon, transiting your First House of Identity — a time to create a new self-construct from which anything you desire can be attained. To get what you want, you have to be energetically aligned with the sought-after prize. Focus on the abundance you already have for more love and prosperity, for instance. It’s all about feeling. Once working yourself into a tailspin of appreciation, let it “set” and complement your energetic shifts by making changes to the outside, e.g., a new hairstyle, wardrobe, signature jewelry piece or tattoo could serve as tangible proof of your new you. Now’s your time to really shine, Gemini; look into that heart of yours, and give yourself everything you want in this world; it’s really only one (sustained) right feeling away, so do everything you can to put yourself in the right mindset and make this new year all it can be.

Cancer: The New Moon in Gemini will transit your Twelfth House of the Subconscious, giving you the perfect excuse for an extended stay under the covers! Seriously, though, you’ll want to nest and rest as much as possible over the next two weeks to process the last 12 months before your upcoming birthday. To make the most out of your next Solar Return, release outworn thought-patterns, debris from past negative relationships, etc., as to not repeat them. So much of behavior is subconsciously motivated, and we’re usually so busy, that we don’t have the chance to process our past experiences, clearing our heads and energy to attract the new things we want. Listening to self-hypnosis recordings, repeating positive affirmations, and giving your conscious mind a rest by sleeping and meditating will be time well-spent. Additionally, introduce new self-care strategies into your daily regimen for a leg up on making your next birthday year the best one yet!

Leo: Hopes, Dreams, Wishes and Friends are the name of your game for the next two weeks as the New Moon in Gemini hits your Eleventh House. What an exciting time! This transit gives you the opportunity to ask, “Why not?” Why not get in life whatever you want? Nothing’s too good or too big for you; use the next two weeks to dream it up. Ask the universe to help you develop relentless patience and faith as you move toward your ideals. To make your journey easier, seek out like-minded people who want to go where you want to go, and take the journey together. Even friends who aren’t on the same path can prove beneficial, encouraging you along the way and applauding when you do something spectacular. The meaning of friendship is another theme around this time; you’ll get the opportunity to help out those who need your optimism and courageous spirit, which will empower your progress, too. This is also a great two-week period to meet new people who “get you,” and these like-minded people could become part of your tribe or lifelong friends.

Virgo: This New Moon in Gemini will transit your Tenth House of Status and Honors, so your career is front and center! More than just your job, the Tenth House covers your legacy, what you’ll be known for. Over the next two weeks, get clear on what you bring to the table and how you can strategically move up the ladder of success. Once these next two weeks are up, you’ll be able to let loose, but for now remember that you’re in the spotlight and keep your eyes on the prize. Additionally, this is the ideal time to empower your self-discipline; being more consistent with your workouts or cleaner with your diet, for instance, will help strengthen your presence. Make sure you’re getting your proper rest and taking good care of yourself so you’re able to maintain an excellent attitude, choose your battles carefully, and finesse your way to the top of whatever mountain you want to climb.

Libra: The New Moon in Gemini will transit your Ninth House of the Higher Mind. Over the next two weeks, the concept of “journeying” will be at the forefront. Is there a new journey you want to go on? Maybe some long-term professional plans or a new life-long study? You might even decide to distance yourself from the familiar and move cross-country or visit some distant shore. Whatever it is, your “itchy feet” during this period will prompt you to get moving! The whole point of a Ninth House transit is to expand your mind, which will help you achieve justice for yourself and the world…for there are many things now just waiting for you to discover! As you set off on a new journey over the next two weeks (or recommit to one in progress) don’t worry about things out of your control; instead, choose to see life and people through the lens of love to help solicit (via Law of Attraction) positive outcomes. All you have to do, Libra, is show up and take responsibility for your own energy, and commit to enjoying every step of the new trajectory.

Scorpio: The New Moon in Gemini will transit your Eighth House of Rebirth, so “game-changer” could best describe your next two weeks. To set boundaries or dissolve boundaries, that is the question. The Eighth House is where we intermingle our resources with other people and entities (energies); this can be empowering or disempowering, and sometimes both at the same time. If you take out a loan, for instance, (an Eighth House thing) you’re given some reprieve with the bank’s resources, but with interest and fees you’ll be investing more of your own resources. What do you value more? Taking out the loan and having money now, or not being beholden to the bank? Or say the guy you’re seeing is great in bed (another Eighth House thing) but he’s emotionally unavailable. What do you value more, the sex or having a man who’s there emotionally? There’s no right or wrong answers, but your choices define your values which will create your life experience. Over the next two weeks, make sure you consider the vibrational outcome of your decisions — i.e., ask which value-based option will make you happier.

Sagittarius: The New Moon in Gemini will transit your Seventh House of Partnerships, Sagittarius! This is a great time to strengthen your relationships with others, and the first step to this is to strengthen your relationship with yourself. Be kind to yourself, non-judgmental, and accept where you’re at. This will in turn help you approach others through the eyes of love, which by law of attraction will help you solicit from others what you want to see. No doubt that this is a great time to re-commit to partnerships you’re in, or recommit to finding your ideal partner/s — in love, business, friends, etc. After the last moon cycle two weeks ago — the Full Moon in Scorpio — you may have found that some partnerships don’t suit you anymore. If that’s the case, work on releasing them from your life with love. Alternatively, you may have decided to deepen your relationships. In either case, in bettering your self-love, you’re setting the stage for blossoming, appreciative relationships that balance you and make your journey richer and more fulfilling.

Capricorn: The New Moon in Gemini will transit your Sixth House of Health and Work. Remember, your health is your wealth, Capricorn, and that’s going to give your career the longevity it deserves. Now is the perfect opportunity to introduce new lifestyle choices into your daily regimen. Perhaps it’s meditation, exercise, or cleaner eating…anything you can do to sooth yourself and let the universal life force energy run through you better — which will allow you to get more done! The next two weeks may be busy work-wise, so ensure you have enough gas in your tank to give your tasks the time and attention they need for a quality result. Aim for more patience with yourself, co-workers and projects as you move toward completion. If you’re looking for new work, the next two weeks are ideal to get that ball in motion. Clarify what you want with the universe, and do your part to make it happen!

Aquarius: The New Moon in Gemini will transit your Fifth House of Pleasure! This is a great opportunity to benefit from life’s big secret to success: Fun! The universe wants you to be joyful, and that joy brings more joy. Don’t deprive yourself of the joy you already have just because one or two things may be off, as the joy you have in one area can set the stage for joy in another. Over the next two weeks, you can facilitate greater joy through self-expression. Maybe there’s an old art-form you want to reacquaint yourself with, or some new mode of self-expression you’ll want to pursue. Do it! In addition to self-expression, you can gain more joy over the next two weeks by aiming to have as much fun as possible. Don’t decline any invitations that could be enjoyable. Relationship-wise, the time is ripe to reignite your passion with your partner by enjoying a getaway or enjoying some hot date nights. If not attached, you could very well find romance during this cycle. Appreciate yourself and appreciate your friends, family, partners, work, home — anything you can — as that appreciation will help you develop more joy in every area of your life.

Pisces: The New Moon in Gemini will transit your Fourth House of Home, Family and Security. The next two weeks will be about really rooting yourself to feel more secure. It all starts with you, and your unconditional love and self-acceptance. Make sure you’re doing all you can to take super good care of yourself. Part of this may be ensuring your home offers you the refuge you need to restore yourself regularly. If you’re not happy with the comfort level you have in your home, take measures to make it more comfortable. Perhaps this means new pillows, artwork, etc., or finding a new home entirely. This transit is also about connecting with your family of origin and/or family of choice to feel more emotionally secure. Go out on a limb to connect with those you love, comforting and consoling those who need it. Likewise, if you need some extra love over the next two weeks, give the people you love a chance to step up; if you go to a dance and have no one to dance with, if you make the first move, you might see that people were waiting for you all along.
