The cards are on the Table.New moon in Gemini 4/5th June.
New moon in Gemini 4/5th June at 14 Degrees.4th June 11:00 PM EDT, 5th June 02:59 (UT) June 2016
This powerful new moon is conjunct Venus and is awakening our desires to love.
It is a portal for new beginnings and is a time to set our intentions and to discern our truth.
Love and relationships are the major themes now, especially as Venus stays conjunct the Sun until the 10th of July.Until then our desire to love and relate will be intensified and the themes revolving around how we are getting our needs and desires met.
We will have many opportunities until then to meet new loves, reflect upon our needs and to step up the quality of existing relationships.
We may feel we are at a crossroad, a time to discern our true needs and desires, to find and speak our truth, consequently making decisions and taking action.
Mars retrograde in Scorpio is revealing all that is hidden and bringing the truth to light.
The time has come to lay the cards on the table, our own as well as those of others, no more hidden agendas or secrets.
The purpose is to free us of one last emotional blockage, to prepare us for the full moon on the 20th June and for when Mars turns direct on the 29th June. Our lives will then rapidly move forward, carrying us to the next level. And to a new and better way of relating to love, to our relationships and to free ourselves of Self-limiting beliefs.
The full moon in Sagittarius on the 20th June, the same day of the summer solstice as well as when Jupiter conjuncts the nodes of fate that will set us upon our destined path, we need to make one last course correction before then.
The Moon, Sun and Venus are standing together united, helping and guiding us, to make all decisions with love and compassion. Gemini is flexible, intellectual and can see the big picture, helping us to see everybody’s perspective. We will be able to combine our mind with our hearts.
The power of love reigns over this new moon.
When we come from a place of peace, we find we can handle almost anything.
Mars in Scorpio retrograde may well have brought certain truths to light. Either about ourselves or others. Revolving around Scorpio themes of power, desire and passion.
The potential for conflict is high as Mars is opposite Mercury the ruler of the new moon, forcing hidden repressed desires, denials and untruths to the surface.
We may find themes of last summer when Saturn was in Scorpio coming up for one last review as well as karmic relationships from our past or even from past lives crossing our way.
Helping us determine exactly where we stand now, in the present moment, how far we have come and exactly where we want to go.
Any last baggage has to go. We need to travel light as our new path is unfolding, we need to be prepared. We will be rapidly pushed along in a new direction, to our higher path and consciousness. Leaving the past and the old ways behind forever.
We can now see that last piece of the puzzle, stopping us from our final breakthrough.
We have the opportunity to burn away old karma in love and dysfunctional patterns forever. This new moon is the end of a cycle that started on June 6th, 2012 when we had the rare Venus eclipse conjunct the new moon in Gemini.
We have come such a long way since then and learned so much; it’s time to put our new knowledge into practice
It is the beginning of a new chapter in love. To stop playing games and to relate in a new and conscious way. In our relationships as well as to ourselves, with self-love playing a central role.
We now have the tools we need to live happier, healthier relationships. With the nodes of fate in play and Venus conjunct the Sun until 10th July, we may well find the partner that aligns with our new conscious ways of relating in love and find the happiness that we desire.
Mars is bringing to light any last remnants of the old ways of relating. On our new path, there is no place for the Scorpio negative themes of power struggles, manipulating, drama, jealously, not facing our fears, unresolved anger, untruths and self-sabotage. We will be able to identify these inner demons. We can either work to resolve them or walk away from all that is NOT love.
We need to identify our inner demons so that we can transmute them into higher energy. By doing this, we set a huge source of power and energy free.
We go from being disempowered to empowered.
To own our power we need to own our own issues and not project them onto others.
Mars and Mercury help us to read between the lines and help us to see all that ISN’T being said.
The new moon and Sun in aspect to Neptune asks us, how do we delude ourselves and other us?
We need, to be honest with ourselves and ask ourselves if we are:
Looking for love in all the wrong places?
How do we, or others choose power over love?
Are we living our truth or someone else’s?
Are our thought patterns in alignment with our heart`s need for intimacy and desire?
Are we not speaking our truth out of the fear of not being loved or accepted?
Where are we still in denial for the sake of staying in our comfort zone?
The Grand Cross is pushing us to set healthy boundaries and realign our truths.
We are reaching a new level of consciousness, and the ways and paths are diverging more and more.
The next step is to review and redefine what we want from love. To test the lessons that we have learned and to put them into practice.
With Venus, Moon and the Sun at the helm, we have the tools we need at our disposal. Compassion, trust, empathy, love, and ethical discernment are already in our possession. The next step is to implement them.”
Only when we have accepted ourselves through self-love and knowledge, can we then communicate our truths
“Where wisdom reigns, there is no conflict between thinking and feeling.”
― C.G. Jung
Until around the 12th June, when Mercury will enter Gemini and the grand cross will begin to separate, we will need to stay cool, level headed and try to avoid getting caught up in power struggles.
The major planets and players are determined to help us find new ways and solutions to old outdated patterns of thinking and relating, to prepare as for the next major shift on and after the full moon on the 20th June.
We need a new approach from a new perspective of thinking for old problems that takes into account the problems and perspective of all combined with heart intelligence.While avoiding making all to quick and superficial judgments.
“We can not solve our problems with the same level of thinking that created them.”
― Albert Einstein
And we will find new solutions to old ways. As the Sun and Moon in Gemini are exactly conjunct Venus in Gemini. All three are sitting together at the head of the table of the Grand Cross. Like the king and queen bringing the quarreling heads of state together to find a solution. Sitting at the table are Saturn, Neptune and Jupiter in tense aspect to each other, all coming with their own perspectives and agendas. They are all in the mutable signs so they will help us to stay flexible.
The only navigation that we need when faced with making a decision is to follow the emotional intelligence and truth of our hearts.
With Mercury being so prominent we need to become aware of HOW we communicate our needs and truths and take responsibility for what we say. Most arguments are not caused by WHAT is said but by HOW they are said. We are being reminded of the power of words.
With Mercury sextile Chiron the healer in Pisces our words must serve an end to heal and not to wound.
“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that”. -Martin Luther King, Jr.
Mercury in Taurus is being strengthened by Jupiter-Pluto and Chiron. We have a real chance to change and heal outdated ways of thinking and communicating. With our heart and our mind working together in unison.
When conflicts arise, we need to be the awareness behind our thoughts and emotions
“Before you speak, let your words pass through three gates:
At the first gate, ask yourself “Is is true?”
At the second gate ask, “Is it necessary?”
At the third gate ask, “Is it kind?”
By living by our truth, we will find freedom and liberation
